Watermelon Tourmaine has mostly been a minor character, though they do have a few important scenes. They were seen along with other Gems in many common scenes where the Gems did activities together. They became more prominent later in the story when a new type of Moon Person appeared. Watermelon, Bort and the other Gems battled this new type and saved Phosphophyllite, Cairngorm, Sphene and Peridot from being taken to the Moon. Later, they made flower crowns for Phos and Cairngorm during the Winter Delay arc.
Not much can be said about Watermelon Tourmaline since they are a minor character. When Phos was believed to have turned into a slug and Diamond asked the other Gems for help, the Gems made a variety of responses, though Watermelon Tourmaline stayed silent and let their partner Hemimorphite answer instead.
