The Vine Monsters were large creatures the Crystal Gems fought in Issue 7: "Mean Look" in the Steven Universe comic series.

Appearence

The creature is either one being with multiple heads, or are three separate beings. The Vine Monsters, true to their name, have vine-like bodies with the heads resembling a papilionaceous flower, with the banner and keel being the upper and lower jaw, respectively, and the two wing petals on the sides having the appearance of their eyes. A black gem looking object is seen on the middle of the heads.

Abilities

  • Teleportation Beam: The Vine Monsters are able to shoot beams from the black object on their center that can teleport someone.
  • Vine Whip: They are able to use their vines as whips in combat.

History

Steven and the Crystal Gems were fighting these creatures in the middle of a rocky terrain, with Onion watching while eating popcorn. Things take a sudden turn when one of the creatures shoots a teleportation beam, beaming away the Gems. They then turn towards Onion and slap the bag out of his hands. He gives them a death stare and by the time Steven and the others returned, the monsters were cowering behind a rock while Onion waves hello, to Steven's surprise.

Trivia

  • The Vine Monster's appearance coincides with some of the species in the family Fabaceae, also known as the Pea Family, who's flowers are predominantly papilionaceous (butterfly-looking) and with some of the more well known members growing as vines.
