The Big Bird is a corrupted Gem and the main antagonist of her debut episode, "Giant Woman".

Appearance

The Big Bird takes the form of a massive bird-like creature with large, broad wings, thin, stick-like legs, and a comparatively small tail. She has brown feathers covering almost all of her body with purple plumage on her chest and belly. She has a huge jagged beak that extends to her forehead and is able to hold a large number of objects and has no visible eyes. Her interior is encrusted with gemstones that are encased by bubbles.

History

While attacking the Crystal Gems at the Sky Spire, she attempts to eat Steven and Steven Jr. Opal critically injures Big Bird by punching through her stomach to retrieve both Steven and Steven Jr., resulting in her reforming into many smaller birds. Big Bird is then defeated by Opal, who shoots her smaller versions with her arrows. Following her defeat, the gems comprising Big Bird are automatically bubbled by Opal.

Abilities

Latest-0

The Big Bird's gemstones.

  • Avian Physiology: The creature takes on the form of a colossal bird and thus has the same innate abilities a bird has, such as the ability of flight and the use of her talons and beak as weapons.
  • Super Ingestion: Big Bird consumes people, animals, and objects indiscriminately.
  • Fission: When she sustains serious damage, she splits into numerous smaller versions of herself, which are simply tiny heads with beaks and wings. This also appears to involve fragmenting her gem.

Episode appearances

Trivia

  • Her "beak" bears a strong resemblance to the jaws/mandibles of the Centipeetle's from "Gem Glow".
  • She may be related to the bird the Crystal Gems fought in the episode "Cheeseburger Backpack".
  • The amount of gems within the Big Bird implies that she is a corrupted Gem Fusion, or a corrupted Gem who has various bubbled gems stored inside of her.
  • She has a similar appearance to the top figure of the totem pole from Greg's storage unit.
  • She is featured as an enemy that Steven must avoid in Gem Bound.
  • Among the many items swallowed by the Big Bird, a Maneki-neko figurine can be seen in the pile of debris Steven Jr. was sitting upon in "Giant Woman".
