In other media[]

  • In 2013, a series of short animated features starring Amethyst, voiced by Sophie Oda, were aired as part of the DC Nation block on Cartoon Network. The seven-episode series used designs by Brianne Drouhard and was animated by Japanese studio David Production. These shorts portray Gemworld as a video game into which Amy Winston is magically transported to battle the forces of Dark Opal. It modernizes Amethyst's design, making her a Japanese-inspired magical girl, and pits her against monsters reminiscent of stock and classic video game antagonists.
  • Amethyst has a cameo appearance in the animated film DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year, voiced by Cristina Pucelli. It was revealed that Dark Opal had run away from Gemworld and was nearly caught by her in the escape.
