Top 10 Reasons Why Steven Universe is Better Than Winx Club

The Top Ten

1 The characters have different body types instead of tall and thin like a stick

Because figures from Winx Club are supposed to be representative of real life, right? If you actually bothered to watch the show, Stella actually fights for a pizza in S3 Ep1.

This is an animation style; meaning, it isn't supposed to be about real life. If you're so insecure that a SHOW could make you starve yourself, then get some confidence; you can never look like that.

Seriously, body shapes are a tiny part of Winx Club; I never noticed them; no one I know noticed them; so stop being petty, because the show doesn't encourage starving.
Layla dances and exercises a lot (she has no reason to be fat) Stella actually says "You can't shop without a full stomach" (and she's the most stylish), Stella asks Tecna for her food, she said she'd work it off whenever someone teased her about eating too much (exercising is a healthy way to lose weight), and at least they do not show that just because you eat (I'm not talking about quantity, but simply eating) you'll be ...more

There's nothing wrong with skinny characters, but the way the winx are drawn makes me want to scoop my eyes out with a spoon. The skinny characters in SU (Pearl, Garnet, Lapis, etc) are drawn beautifully. - RoseWeasley

I love both shows to be honest I have no problem with this list

Winx Club: All are tall, thin, and curvy.

Steven Universe: Pearl is tall and skinny, Amethyst is short and sorta chubby, Garnet and Rose Quartz both are incredibly tall with Garnet being pretty muscular, Ruby and Saphire are also pretty short, and Steven is pretty chubby, Jasper is really buff, and so much more.

Which one is more realistic and makes people more proud of there body shape?

2 More diverse

"More diverse"
Steven Universe creators said that the gems don't have races or genders, so it's impossible for the T.V. show to be diverse. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

3 The characters wear more appropriate outfits

Steven Universe characters have better outfits than all the Stinx Club fairies combined. -Maddie - PastelTheGamer

The outfits in the first few seasons of Winx are pretty, but SU has more appropriate ones. And while the new ones are decent, SU's outfit's simpleness make them easier to remember. - RoseWeasley

The Winx fairies are half naked.

Steven Universe is worse! There outfit is like sticking to their boddy showing all the lines - BloomFire

4 Better morals
5 Garnet is a better leader than Bloom

Bloom is better than Robin from Teen Titans Go!

Garnet knows how to lead a team, she can also break up fight between Amethyst and Pearl. She know what to to it tough situations. Bloom only relies on her dragon flame.

Bloom is better - BloomFire

I thought Pearl was the leader - Dragontree102

6 Steven and Connie are a better couple than Bloom and Sky

Steven and Connie SUCKS! Thry date so young! Showing kids bad things - BloomFire

And Winx encourages kids to cheat on their partners for another person. - RoseWeasley

True, because Steven and Connie are not the average typical skinny, tall, powerful, handsome/beautiful "in your face type" fantasy characters unlike Sky and Bloom who honestly look like bad actors/actresses in a 1 star movie LOL.

Because a 12 year old dating a 14 year old is fine, right? Perfectly normal? Sky and Bloom were more of friends in S1.

Both are meh but Bloom and Sky were a but better in season 1 and 3' - DaisyandRosalina

7 It has better singers

Right. Unless you listen to the countless songs in Winx Club, you're going to say that Musa has a bad voice. Listen to the first 40 seconds of We're the Symphony. Listen to "Love is a Miracle".

"Pearl is beautiful at singing", until you hear better singers. "It's Over, Isn't It" sounds like a male magician showing magic tricks to his viewers, not a heartfelt song.

"Giant Woman" sounds like a dumb kid (Oh, Steven) singing some "let's be friends" song during war. Actually, he sounds like a girl.

"What Can I Do" sounds like two drunk people mumbling random words, that make sense as lyrics.

All in all, Pearl sounds like some male magician trying to sound witty named Dakota (I don't know why I thought the name Dakota ) who should be in the Greatest Showman, Steven sounds like a girl trying to sound like a boy, and the fat princess (What can I do singer) sounds drunk.

Also, did you listen to the part where the singer sings lyrics in We're the Symphony? ...more

Clearly, you weren't paying attention to It's Over, Isn't It, but Pearl's outfit. She has a beautiful voice, & was singing about how she missed Rose so much, wondering why she couldn't just move on, which hit close to home for me, because I felt that way when my friend broke up with me. And Musa has a good voice, but her voice actor shouldn't be in that crappy show. - RoseWeasley

What! This list is totoally fake! I mean Winx has one of the best songs! - BloomFire

HAHA no. - DaisyandRosalina

For the person who said Winx songs are stupid, sure, there are a few cheesy ones. But the cheesy ones have style.

Stronger Than You is pathetic, honestly. It's basically Garnet bragging. And how are Winx songs stupid? Apart from transformation sequences, Winx songs have meaning, unlike SU songs.

8 Steven Universe has better villains

Winx got the evelist villan - BloomFire

The villains were a bit too confused in SU in my opinion. - DaisyandRosalina

9 The gems don't have to transform in order to get their powers

So that means that is all their powers! They can't even level up! - BloomFire

THIS WHOLE LIST IS WRONG! EVERYONE YOU'RE ALL WRONG! (EXCEPT FOR YOU BLUE TOPAZ ICE) WINX CLUB IS THE BEST SHOW EVER! AND I KNOW THAT I'M 10 AND I shouldn't like it anymore but I first started liking it cause I saw a game of it on roblox in summer of 2017 (it's called royale high school beta) and I watched it on youtube (WinxClubEnglish is best) and HAVE YOU SEEN SU?!?!?! I ACTUALLY LIKED IT UNTIL I WATCHED THE EPISODE WHERE STEVEN TURNS INTO A CAT. THEN I HATED IT. So don't make the mistake I made by watching Steven Universe. Watch GOOD shows like Pokemon. Winx Club. (i like them both)

This is untrue. Have you watched more than 1 minute of Winx Club? Apparently not, because hundreds of thousands of times (or even more), we've seen The Winx use their powers for various things, OUTSIDE OF TRANSFORMATION. The transformations just brings out the fullest potential of the powers inside them. Please learn to watch a show before you judge. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Not every magical girl series has to have a transformation scene because it can get so boring

10 They don't act weak

The Winx when they are hit by magic they almost make it looks like they are weak. While SU on the other hand is strong and they never give up.

You have watched 5 minutes of Winx Club, delete this comment, watch the series and then come back here. - DaisyandRosalina

The Contenders

11 SU doesn't glorify cheating


12 The gems have better backstories

Amethyst - A gem who was created for war, causing her to feel extremely insecure about herself.
Garnet - A gem who is actually a fusion of 2 gems, Ruby & Sapphire, & fought hard to preserve their relationship.
Pearl - A gem who was extremely close to Rose Quartz, willing to die for her, so when Greg fell in love with her, she suffered extreme emotional conflict. - RoseWeasley

13 Pearl is smarter than Tecna

Tecna is smarter than Brian Griffin from Family Guy.

Yes I have seen both shows and I can confirm this, pearl is so much smarter and has more depth than that plastic stereotype sailor mercury ripoff.

They are both smart - Maryampink2011

Nope! Steven univese is trash compared to winx - BloomFire

14 Winx Club seems to get worse and worse, while Steven Universe gets better and better

SU is getting worse! See season 8 and you will regret it - BloomFire

Winx is worse since season 4.
SU is... nice but not MUCH better. - DaisyandRosalina

15 Steven Universe has a great plot

Winx Season 3 had a great one too but with less filler which I appreciated more - DaisyandRosalina


16 It's funnier
17 The Gems are independent


18 This Show Is Not Too Girly

Winx is targeted towards 7-13 girls, this is like saying SU sucks because the main protagonist is a male. - DaisyandRosalina

19 Winx Club sucks

No u suck - BloomFire

20 Centipeetle Is Not On Winx club

Yea scare kidss - BloomFire

Who would want that creepy thing on it?

21 Bloom is a Mary Sue

Nope - BloomFire

Yeah... because ‘course her and Sky would be the perfect couple, fighting for each other, being romantic and all.
(I know it’s because of the Dragon Flame, but seriously, BLOOMIX? Why not Dragonix or Flamix than naming a transformation after her? )

22 Winx Club is for little girls

My cousin is 20 and she loves it - BloomFire

But so was MLP : FIM and that left a great impact on many people. Don't judge shows on their demographic.

No, it's for teens and tweens.

Only after season 4 and... so is SU - DaisyandRosalina

23 Winx Club is Italian

OK, I'm not a fan of Winx Club, but that's just racist.

And...? - DaisyandRosalina

24 Winx Club is just a one-dimensional world, while Steven Universe is roasting cliches

SU roasts cliches because it doesn't make sense and how is Garnett not a stereotypical black woman anyway? - DaisyandRosalina

25 All of the Winx have boyfriends

Musa don't have one - BloomFire

Musa has not anymore - DaisyandRosalina

26 Better animation

The only complaints I have about SU are the fandom, the character designs constantly changing, & Ronaldo. Otherwise, it's amazing. - RoseWeasley

27 Sapphire & Ruby are a better couple than Sky & Bloom

I'm not saying this because it's a lesbian ship, it's because Ruby & Sapphire doesn't glorify cheating & has a really nice story. - RoseWeasley

28 Bloom is a Mary Sue, Steven is not
