|“||"Come live with us in the palace
There's a room waiting for you
Come on, come on, come on
Just let us adore you
Yes, we know that you're not her but you were her's
You know what it meant to love her
And you remind us so much of her
I've disbanded my armies, I've liberated my colonies!
I never shouted! I'd never make anyone cry!
I've been saying "Please" and "thank you, " even to lower life-forms!
Ugh, equal life-forms
Steven, we've done everything you've asked!"
|~ The Diamonds to Steven|
Yellow Diamond is a Homeworld Gem and a member of the Great Diamond Authority that rules over the Gem race. She was first shown in the extended theme song and made her debut appearance in "Message Received". She is said to be flawless, with no weaknesses, as well as being a Diamond, which are the strongest varieties of gems on Homeworld. As a result of Era 3, Yellow now works to repair Gems she had previously shattered in her Cluster experiments and wishes to use her powers to help other Gems alter their physical form if they choose to do so.

- Aura Projection: The Diamonds can project an aura around them that they can control, they can either radiate it from their entire bodies or emit it from specific parts of their bodies, usually their hands. Yellow's aura is represented as yellow clouds of electricity. She can use this as an offensive ability in both the physical and mental plane, as seen when she was able to focus her aura and attack Steven as he was projecting.
- Electrokinesis: Yellow's aura takes the form of a powerful electrical current that form currents around her body and can be projected from her fingertips. These electrical bolts can deal significant physical damage but also destabilizes a Gem's form in a manner almost exactly like a Gem Destabilizer. It can be focused to cut through thick surfaces.
- Transmutation with Biological Manipulation and Size Manipulation: Yellow can permanently alter the physical form/shape of Gems in any way she wishes, and can also use this ability on individuals like Steven who are half-Gem, half-organic. This ability also extends to Size Manipulation to such an extent that she can grow Garnet to a size even larger than her own tremendous stature.
