Garnet is a fictional character from the animated series Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar. She is a "Gem", a fictional alien being that exists as a magical gemstone projecting a holographic body. Garnet is a "fusion" — i.e., two Gems combining personalities and appearances as one shared holographic body — formed by two Gems named Ruby and Sapphire, who choose to remain permanently fused out of love for each other.

Garnet is voiced by Estelle, a performance that has seen a positive reception. Garnet has been frequently praised for being a depiction of a positive lesbian relationship.

The de-facto leader of the Crystal Gems, who protect humanity and the Earth from danger, Garnet is initially presented as stoic and unfeeling but pragmatic and capable. The show's writers have described Garnet as characterized by great self-confidence; they represent this through the fact that she never asks questions. Eric Thurm of The A.V. Club described Garnet as "initially the most reticent, distant, and simply alien" of the Crystal Gems. After the Crystal Gems' original leader Rose Quartz gave her life to create her son Steven Universe, Garnet took on the role of the group's de facto leader. Early in the series, she appears relatively distant, as she rarely speaks out. As the story of Steven Universe progresses, however, she becomes more relatable. Writing for Minnesota Daily, Cecilia Mazumdar Stanger pointed out that Garnet is far from a perfect leader and can make mistakes.

From the gemstones in her palms, Garnet can summon two powered gauntlets. Her "future vision" allows her to view different possible outcomes to predict future events, and she can temporarily share this ability with Steven by kissing him. Eric Thurm noted that scenes in which Garnet uses her future vision are among the show's best visual accomplishments.
