    He probably can but given what it represents I don't think Steven has the personality to fuse with just anyone.

    Gem Fusions have no upper limit but alexandrite was barely stable so I expect it's harder the more there are

    I guess it wouldn't be totally out there for things to get to diebuster/gurenn Lagann/bayonetta/asura's Wrath scale where you have fusions the size of planets hurling asteroids at eachother.

    I really doubt he is trusting enough of everyone to be able to actually do that at any point.

    And even if he could, there's no way that fusion would be stable enough to last more than seconds or moments.

  • GundiGundi Serious Bismuth Registered User regular
    A few seconds would be all it'd take.

    Another thing I'm curious about is Lion. Lion is obviously not a normal lion. Is he a gem? So far there hasn't been magic/super-advanced technology in the show that hasn't been gem related.

  • ChincymcchillaChincymcchilla Registered User regular
    I was thinking maybe lion is a corrupted gem that was tamed

    They said rose was always trying to heal them

    Lion is the only unanswered secret this show leaves behind, calling it now.

  • NeoTomaNeoToma Registered User regular
    Gems (or at least some of the corrupted ones we've seen) can create minons, maybe lion is just an advanced form of that

  • DevoutlyApatheticDevoutlyApathetic Registered User regular
    Lion is all the "Gem stuff" from Rose that was left behind when Steven was made.

    Lion is definitely related to Rose somehow, but exactly what it "is" hasn't really been explained yet

  • GundiGundi Serious Bismuth Registered User regular
    A corrupted gem or gem fragment actually is a really good idea.
    Lion is all the "Gem stuff" from Rose that was left behind when Steven was made.
    Rose literally was her gem, remember? Like literally everything that Rose ever was is in Steven's belly button.

    Remember, I'm just spit balling here since we don't know but the way you wrote that lead me to horrible thoughts. Do you really think Rose's memories/personality/everything is literally trapped and submerged into the gem? Her sacrifice is sad and touching and echoes the human condition if it's non-existence. If it is literally a prison sentence that feels like something else.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    I believe Rose, the person, is truly gone.

    I'm using a very rough analogy, but until proven otherwise, I'm of the opinion that the gems are loosely similar to computers or the Geth.
    All that was Rose, may well be in Steven's Gem, but the personality and functions are fundamentally different because of what Greg added.

    ***
    Gaming the expected tropes and system, I think we are gonna get a scene where Steven gets echos or dreams talking with a construct of Rose, so that its understood by the viewer. It won't actually be Rose, just an ok copy that can provide a "Gem Wiki" of Rose's experiences.

    Or we could get something radically different and fantastic and that will be cool too. But until we get more info, this is what I'm going with.

    There have been hints that on some level Rose isn't gone. Like, people have wondered what would happen if someone literally tried to tear the gem out of Steven(Since he seems to have an actual flesh and blood body.) and some people have speculated that Rose would literally just come back since Gems are literally their gems. (Although I don't know what would happen to Steven, probably nothing good.)

    We already know what would happen to Steven.

    Rose says quite plainly that they both can't exist at the same time.

    He'd die.

    That said, Steven doesn't have a normal human body either, since it can change in dramatic ways. If not quite as dramatic (so far) as other Gems.

    I don't recall any fusion that didn't involve a dance, unless we're counting offscreen.

    All fusions require dancing

    I still think the main secret behind lion has something to do with the gem bubbled inside of him.

    I think lion is some manifestation of Rose's powers and essence, and that some day when steven's ready, it's going to combine with him and give him a big ol power boost

    But then he'll separate it back out into lion because he doesn't wanna lose his friend

    I think if lion were anything rose created prior to dying that pearl or Greg would know about it

    The fact that it came outta nowhere seems to suggest to me that it was somehow the result of rose's death, just like Steven was

    I guess that could be true but the fact that Lion is filled to the brim with a combination of Mementos and stuff she specifically wanted Steven to have implies to me that Lion was planned on Rose's part. We already know that Rose kept many secrets even from Pearl and Greg so I'm not surprised there is another.

    There's a lot of possible explanations though

    Lion could've gone around collecting that stuff for example

    We'll find out what the deal is eventually I guess!

    Where does Lion even go when they're not in an episode? Do they just appear when needed or what?

    Also Lion makes lots of small appearances in lots of episodes.

    Alternatively, Lion goes off to fight crime. Inconspicuously.

    I don't think that's the case

    This show has taken some pains to stress to the viewer that Rose kept secrets from everyone

    We will likely be learning stuff she kept hidden for the duration of the show. It's no surprise at all to me that Lion was completely unknown to everyone else.
