Top 10 Reasons Why Steven Universe Is the Worst Show On CN


The Top Ten

1 It's Overrated

Look, it could be a great show, and while I admit I haven't seen much, it's too late for me to even try getting into it. Either online or even in real life, the show is /everywhere/. I can't even get in a week of school without hearing about "gemlings" or stuff about the character Peridot. Sure, it might have cool concepts, but the spoilers were left and right and the fandom's frankly revolting these days. If it wasn't so overhyped and overrated, I would of considered watching it. While Adventure Time and other shows have gotten high attention for sure, Steven Universe's has grown to a ridiculous level.

Ugh, I see this show just about every day on the internet, and it annoys me. I've seen a few episodes and it isn't really my cup and of tea. Also, have fun giving me useless comments because I don't like the show.

All the fans are horrible with defending it, saying it's the best show ever...what? Are you serious? Clearly you have not seen classics like Ed Edd n Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, American Dad (I know it's an adult cartoon but most of the people who watch the show are adolescent-adults so...) At least those shows made me laugh and understand the morals! Steven Universe is way too complex and serious for the young audience it's meant to appeal to. The I said ugh...the only reason many seem to like it is because it supports "gay rights" or whatever. Saying it's "the only show with a gay couple"...please! That is in no way true whatsoever! Modern Family *cough, cough* Even Courage the Cowardly Dog had a lesbian couple so Steven Universe fans-live your life but don't bash on others because you don't know your facts!

As annoying as something like this is, it really isn't something that affects the quality of a show.

2 Steven Is Fat

What the hell. Do you expect Steven to be a Barbie doll? Just because somebody's FAT doesn't mean that you should hate them. That is just STEREOTYPICAL and PREJUDICED, to judge somebody by their weight. Steven is an adorable, sweet, caring person.

Why do you care about the character's weight? This is not an accurate reason to hate a show just because "Steven is fat" To me, Steven isn't that fat. He's just a little chunky. - PrincessKiana

I don't have to care about the character's weight but I don't really get why the illustrators drew Steven fat, but still, he just a little fat - bugger

Steven is adorable just the way he is. And it isn't his fault. His dad isn't the skinniest and neither is his mom. As a matter of fact, she's huge, and beautiful. Yeah he makes mistakes sometimes, but he learns from them. The gems think of him as Rose. They know that one day he'll master his gem and be outstanding inside AND out. If you didn't listen to your parents, they'll be mad and punish you, but they'll still love you no matter what.

Not really, he's just kind of chubby

3 The Gems Are Weird Looking

The character design in the show is astounding, the show was even nominated for an award regarding this. I must respectively disagree on this, simply because "weird looking" is no way to describe (in my personal opinion) the gem designs.

The Gems are beautiful. They are from another planet! Seriously, how many superheroes have regular clothes and hair and eyes?

Ok some of em are kinda weird but that does not matter at all. Most of the gems are cool and not ugly and even if they were than that is NOT a reason to hate.

4 It's Not Exciting

Okay, whoever wrote this hasn't seen the new episodes.

I'm kind of sick of all the plot twists. It just makes me not interested. It's alright when a show has only a couple plot twists each season, and then they keep building episodes on top of that related to it, but when EVERY new episode is a plot twist? It's just uninteresting. - RaccoonCartoon

The show's designed to get you invested in it's characters and how they evolve. It's a drama mostly. I can see how that's not everyone's cup of tea.

It's been four years and this is the central plot:
"The diamonds are mad at Steven, but not actively pursuing him."
This really sums up everything that's wrong with the story: it's not progressing. It's going nowhere. The current story-lines are boring. I don't care about the trivial stuff the show stuffs its fillers with. I want to know what happened during the gem war. But it's been four years and all we got is:
"She might have done it. Who knows? " Yeah, thanks. That's exactly as much as we knew during season 1. We learned NOTHING. Get your plot on the road.

5 The Fan Base is Annoying

Yea, I can agree with this one. A girl on Tumblr drew the characters differently than how they really looked, and others told her to kill herself! Why? Because she made Rose skinny? I'm glad she lived. She literally tried to kill herself.

I'm an avid and total fan of Steven Universe, but I gotta agree with this. This girl on Tumblr made Steven Universe drawings of characters that looked nothing like how they did in the show. I see why they were mad, she stripped the characters appearances of what they really were, what they symbolized: that all shapes and sizes are beautiful. But at the same time, the fandom...I mean good lord, the hate had no end.

Yeah they can be evil, but there are fans like that for everything. I personally DO get pretty upset when people insult Steven Universe, but saying that they don't like it is totally okay. But I HATE it when people make those lists about why it should be cancelled. And the hate on fan art has to stop.

I had 2 Steven Universe fans and when they were addicted to that cartoon, they became rude and annoying. I didn't even get to have a chance to talk of my topic because one of my friend said just one little thingy about Steven Universe

Look... these fans are so rude not knowing this cartoon will make you get laughed >:(

6 The Songs Are Boring

The songs come from the heart. These days, all the songs are about drugs and sex, and totally meaningless. In one episode of "Teen Titans Go," they were singing about burgers and burritos. And not to mention their song about different pies? I LOVE the songs. They provide emotion to the show and really set the mood. And "Stronger Than You," got SO many awards!

Personally, I think that these songs are well written, and I love them. But we all can have our opinions, but if I were to find a song I didn't like in this show, I still wouldn't find it boring, as they all have meaning we can relate to.

Well At Least Those Songs Are More Entertaining To Listen To Then To Hear Stupid Trolls Like You That Are Constantly Complaining About The Shows That Aren't Even That Bad.

You can make that argument about anything. This is so whiny. Plus, don't cap all first letters like they are names - superbubble

Honestly, the songs aren't great, the only one that I thought was nicely done was "It's over isn't it? " The music Greg makes is kinda crap. I feel that the show really sucks at making rock (OH THE IRONY) and blues they should just stay away from it.

7 It's Made by and for SJWs

Fat this, lesbian that, "the gems have no gender but they look like girls" aka non-binary bull. It's as if Tumblr turned into a haram anime that turned into a cartoon and some dumbass threw it on T.V. without even looking at it.

The only good part is that the PC asses actually made something and designed it instead of demanding it be changed. But I hope someone has a problem with it and complains to the creator just to see how it feels to have your work demonized for having it the way you want it.

Amen. I'm getting so sick of these libtards deciding for the parents what their kids can and will be subjected to.

Having generally "diverse" characters doesn't automatically mean it's aimed at SJWs. Try again. - naFrovivuS

No, it's made for everyone. Just because it's diverse doesn't mean it's propaganda. - ThatPastelTho

8 It's Not Really Funny

The show does have a little humor but the show is supposed to be serious and also make you feel something and you wont get it watching one episode.its you also have to watch them in order

It can be funny at times and serious at times, sure it can make you laugh but really the theme here seems to be serious and less funny.

Shut up you insufferable, half-formed, traitor mega clod! You ruddy muddy clump beneath my gravity connectors! The humor is awesome! But thus show just isn't all about humor. I read this and I couldn't stop laughing. Have you even seen it?

That's your opinion again. - ThatPastelTho

9 Only Girls Like This Show

I don't even know but I don't believe it. I'm really sick of people having a problem with girls. I'm actually glad most of the gems are girls. Who ever wrote this, shut your mouth about girls

Ok so Cartoon Network FINALLY makes a show that has main characters that are female, and suddenly, that's an offending move towards makes?!? Seriously?!? You can't do anything without offending someone somehow. Quit making something out of nothing. I know plenty of boys who like the show. If you want to complain about something, do it about something that actually deserves complaining, like TTG and other crappy spin-offs and quit trying to bring down good shows.

I am a fan of steven universe an I am a boy. So what? Steven Universe is my favorite show. The guy who wrote this should really rethink this

I am a boy WHY can't I like the show. Hmm so you ar saying I am a boy with record of punch people into hospital Great thought

10 Everybody is Overpowered

Pssh, please! Buddy, chum, pal in the beginning it may seem that way but as the show progresses you get to see that all the gems know what they are and not capable of. They also have weaknesses as well. To be frank with you this is, ironically, one of the rare shows that are HUMAN. It shows how people can change and have to accept things for how they are and that everyone has their limits and weaknesses. You can't deny that we're all human here we, make mistakes, but we can learn from them and either become stronger or weaker; it's your choice.

Overpowered? Ha! How much of an idiot can you people be? If you knew half of what this show was about, you'd know that each of the gems are aware of their weaknesses and boundaries. It's what makes them mentally strong. Actually watch the damn show in its entirety before you criticize it.

Yeah I agree, but Pearl DOES have and inferiority complex, so I guess in a sense, they have emotional weaknesses.

False again. - ThatPastelTho

The Newcomers

? All the constant crying

What's with everyone crying all the time?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Just because Steven is a bit of a baby IN THE FIRST SEASON doesn't mean everyone's crying all the time. There are some very strong characters in the series who don't even cry once.
Plus the action of crying add to the realistic emotions in the story. It makes the characters appear more well-written in a sense that they're not just one personality and that's it.
Seriously, don't try and put down a show you know for a fact is good.

The Contenders

11 Rose kind of replaced God

No... Who wrote this?!

That doesn't even make sense

How?! In what way is rose God?!

Wait so does that mean The Diamond replaced Satan?

12 It Ripped Off Teen Titans Go!

They're polar opposites. How could they rip each other off?

In what sense? - naFrovivuS

It didn't rip off any show.And,Teen Titans Go! ripped off the original Teen Titans.

13 Boring and Unfunny

Wasn't there another thing on the list that said it was unfunny? So this is basically the same thing?

The person who wrote this is boring themselves THIS IS ACTION-PACKED sure some episodes are boring but most of it is AWESOME

They show all these weapons in the theme song, but instead we get to see Steven whining about why he can't get a certain type of donut. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Opinion IS NOT fact. - ThatPastelTho

14 It Insults Us Men

I'm a man and it doesn't bother me at all. I'm glad they made a show with characters that have women as main characters.

How does it insult you. Does seeing a group of badass women give you shivers? Most of the cartoons these days feature male characters. It's only fair to see women in a show.

No it doesn't. It may insult YOU, but not the rest of us.

It insults anyone who's not an SJW.

15 Steven's voice is more annoying than a crying baby.

This is the BIGGEST reason. I absolutely hate Steven as a whole. He acts like a loser crying for his gem mommies to come help him. In real life I feel like Steven would be the kind of person who cries when they don't get what they want and can't stick up for themselves not even in the slightest. His voice is so high pitched it sounds like Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks with a helium balloon. I don't think Steven should be compared to a crying baby, it is an insult to babies worldwide. Babies cry because they have no other way of communicating that they need help and are physically incapable of helping themselves, while Steven can do ANYTHING (with his supernatural powers) and he STILL acts like a toddler. This SJW show should be cancelled. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Actually, Steven has a deeper voice now since he's matured. And he has a really nice singing voice.

I think this is what drives me up a wall.

His singing voice sucks

16 Long Hiatus's

These hiatus's have taught me to be more patient even though I am dying on the inside.

This doesn't have an effect on the quality of the show though, so I personally don't believe it should be on this list

For the animation guy, every single other show on cn ever doesn't have a crappy schedule like steven universe. Its not a reliable show and I don't find any qualities about it that I care about.

Love the show but the Hiatus is so long!

17 Steven's last name is bad

Eh. Coulda been worse. Coulda been Steven Galaxy.

It's Universe. Why don't you make a top ten based on why that's a bad name?

Universe sounds nice to me, what's so bad about it anyway? (I'm stating my opinion here)

Universe? Well, it is his dad's pseudonym. - naFrovivuS

18 Two characters are gay

Ok seriously? I cannot believe that I have to type this comment. Its retarded that no one really pays attention to rebecca sugar explaining and answering questions about the show. The gems DO NOT have genders. Rebecca sugar stated that the gems do take on female appearances but don't in fact have genders. They do have gender specific pronouns but do not actually have a gender. They are sentient morphing rocks. So they don't actually have lesbian/gay relationships. Its not possible for them to have sex since they don't have genitals. They literally use giant machines that shoot specialized minerals into the ground to mass produce the gem race. So they don't have gay relationships. They are only illusions projected by their gem. Their bodies are merely holgrams with mass. Rocks don't have genders. So they are not gay.

Okay true, the gems are gender less. But the children don't know that, they are gonna think the gems are females, just saying that their gender less does not change the fact at all that this has a gay agenda and I honestly think kids should not be watching this. Other than that, I love this show and it does empower women but the homosexuality is not to my liking. Honestly, the LGBTQ community needs to stop enforcing their ideas to people. If I don't like homosexuals that doesn't make me a homophobe, it just shows me how religious/spiritual I am.

Dear everyone in the comments saying "oooh gays are bad, God hates gays, this is terrible.": Look, it's 2016. Move on. Homosexuality is found in over 200 species. Homophobia is found in only one. Get over yourselves.

19 Malachite Was Disappointing

I really expected Malachite to get half of a season. I like Jasper, hate lapis, so the fact Jasper got part of the season dedicated to her made me happy, but really, they couldn't have made Malachite's existence as a villain instead of a "I'm here. Just sitting underwater." longer? She had ONE EPISODE where she was a threat. Sigh


20 Opal Is A Lesbian Fusion

Pearl and Amethyst are genderless,idiot.

21 Steven Is Annoying

I wouldn't say he is annoying, but being able to integrate his child's perspective effectively while demonstrating development in character is something that the show has not always done well. One example of this is the writers refusal to give him solid consequences (often enough for them to matter) and allowing him to fail (at some things). Instead they insist on bubble wrapping him a little too much in the later parts of the first season to current. He therefore doesn't have to learn as much as he has a kind of special treatment. They also seem to make him too chatty at times where silence is more fitting and he never gets called out for any of it, even where he spouts ridiculous notions.

He's 14 but is still carried around like a baby. He bursts into tears over the littlest things. His voice. He's painfully stupid.

Sometimes I don't mind him but others he's just emotional over little things and doesn't take many missions seriously. also he causes some of the problems in the episodes which makes you want to punch him in the face - ilovelife

Its true. I don' t liked main character because he don' t making right think's instead he screw everything and crying as a baby:(

22 The Disturbing Episodes

It does have a few, like the one with the uncle grandpa crossover. - SamuiNeko

Oh boy as a fan of the show I mist agree there are some moments that make me uncomfortable

Someone had to add this! I started to try watching this show but even within the first season beginning episodes, they must have scared away a lot of people. I mainly am talking about Frybo and Cat Fingers, Cat fingers is just nothing relevant to much of the plot, and it's all about Steven wanting to shapeshift into a cat. This goes horribly wrong and he loses control, and he almost DIES basically, his whole body is turning into a blob of cat heads that Steven can't control. Luckily he has a great dad and he saved him with his carwash! Then there is Frybo, the more disturbing one to me. Steven finds a missing shard that pearl needs to find, when looking, he helps his friend instead putting it in a mascot named Frybo. After not too long, Frybo goes crazy and starts grabbing people, holding them still, and shoving handfuls of fries into their mouths almost choking them. Then end up killing him and ripping out the shard but they almost didn't

Oi, I can definitely agree with this one. Lapis with the water leaking from her eyes/mouth/etc. in Chille Tid gave me the creeps. And in Keeping It Together, when Garnet almost broke because of the mini clusters, was pretty unsettling as well. - llamakalamari

23 Too many filler episodes

There's so many filler episodes on beginning but it slowly stops on other seasons after Giant Woman. I think its just going to a good way on next episodes.

There are no filler episodes, there were only the 'say uncle' episode that wasn't cannon but we got to learn how Steven uses his powers

I couldn't even get past episode 13. My ex tried to get me into it but its just way to boring.

Now,it doesn't have too many filler episodes,but the ones,really hurt - GigaGameStart

24 It Has Bad Design

The design is amazing! The artwork is beautiful and the gems are diverse. Who wants a team full of stick-skinny superheroes and a stick-skinny main character?

What are you talking about? Steven Universe has amazing design! Especially in Ocean Gem, with the space scene.

Diversity means nothing. Both Mad Men and City of God are excellent pieces of media, and both are non-diverse in two entirely opposite ways - Mad Men is mainly white, City of God is mainly black or African-Brazilian. You can't just slap some skin colour on a character and call them good, for God's sake. - liliputian7

Ikr I hate the design.

25 Jenny And Kiki Don't Get Enough Screen Time Because They Are Black

I'm pretty sure it's because they are side characters and are not relevant to the plot.

This is so stupid, it's funny.

What? CONNIE is too. And she gets screen time! Don't even start me on this, you're making up excuses.

UUhm... They don't get that much screen time because they are side characters, and don't have input on the plot. Also, characters like Pee Dee and Ronaldo also don't have much screentime, but nobody notices. Why? Oh, because they are white! (Sarcastic voice). Grow up! There have been episodes full of Jenny and Kiki! So just stop. - PeriClod

26 Every Gem is a Female

And somewhere aliens are complaining that Earth only has two genders.

I don't really care about this subject but this is the first time in a while that Cartoon Network has made a show where the main characters are women. But seriously, they just look like women. Remember them talking about them talking about they can take any form they want. Ever seen the episode cat fingers where Amethyst is a cat? Probably not since your too butt hurt about this show to make it past episode 2.

I'm actually glad. Why do people have a problem with girls?! I think it's fair all gems are girls

LoZ: garudo all female, & Gorons seem all male. No one has any problems.

DBZ: namicians are all 1 gender & have male voices, no one cares.

Pokemon: there are some female only & male only Pokemon, & some have to evolve by being a certain gender. Everyone’s fine with this.

In the end, the gems are aliens (& actually have no gender just go by female pronouns). So why does it matter?

27 The story is all over the place. It makes no sense.

The story is coherent. It makes perfect sense.

Hey I know how to fix that... watch the episodes in order dumb-nut

Who put this here?

Well no its generic - sadfag

28 The show is too romantic

The show is too romantic for what? If it were a show for toddlers, then yes it is too romantic, but as it is a show on Cartoon Network, the amount of romance, is considerably less than other shows.

It used to be a funny story, they changed it into a drama war romance show.

Um... I actually can't believe that I'm reading this article. Do us all a favour and stop wasting oxygen. THANKS m8.

There's only 1 canon couple so far, & the two r rarely on screen because they r always a fusion. Connie & Steven just do friend stuff, larz & Sadie seem to like each other but it's mostly complicated & had like 3 episodes focused on their love relationship. Most episodes have ether been character development or action, or plot development. It's as normal as any other show for kids.

29 Garnet Is A Lesbian Fusion

I think it even makes it better. Because of this kids get to see gay characters in a healthy, normal relationship. Also, if they wouldn't be, stronger than you probably wouldn't have happened! And that's my favourite song on the entire show! It sends such a strong message, I am made of love and it's stronger than you, showing that love can make two people stronger. - PeriClod

Oh no! The show's GAY and therefore BAD! Please, your outdated mindset is going to be more harmful than any pro-gay messages the show has to offer.

So? This doesn't make it bad...

30 Peridot is Annoying

I love invader zim so when I saw Peridot I felt happy... I also like that rebecca sugar said she was a fan of the show

PERIDOT IS AWESOME! Her, Steven and none of the Crystal Gems should be part of this!

She's literally like the most popular character so no one gives a damn.

31 Too Much LGBT Content

Subtle liberal agenda attempting to move the line of acceptability.

What? how can you have too much LGBT content? this is the 21st century,get your head outta your ass.

W t f are u talking about? Technically there is NONE as the gems are ROCKS not human. So there are only 'straight content' aka onion heads parents, connies parents, Steven & connine (look main couple THAT HAS NOTHJG TO DO WITH LGBT), Sadie & larz all straight couples 😐

I have no issue with lesbians and gays...what u do in the bedroom is your business. But the whole genderless, non binary idea of the gems is definitely propaganda and whoever disagrees with that doesn’t pay attention to the news. The whole idea of gender has been transformed into some twisted false idea, and it’s on the news practically everyday it’s so irritating. They’re pushing it on people so hard and Steven Universe I guess just happens to coincidentally change into a show about everything liberal activists stand for? Please. This show was awesome in season 1 and 2, I loved it. But it’s so different now it’s annoying. It’s all about people’s wimpy feelings being hurt...a popular argument of SJW’s.

32 Amethyst is Useless

"Completely useless. Why does she even exist? " Are... are you kidding me? Do you even know who Amethyst is? Amethyst, the gem who constantly feels insecure due to her small size. Amethyst, the gem that feels like a big mistake. Amethyst, the gem that constantly tries to prove herself worthy by saving the earth... It's insensitive cynical people like you that would literally destroy her. What actually is wrong with you?

Amethyst is actually my favorite, sure she can be weak or reckless in some certain missions but she's not completely useless. People just overlook her.

Amethyst is fabulous, haters.

Nope, not true. She is strong, and awesome. Without her there wouldn't be Opal, Alexandrite, Sugilite, or Smoky Quartz. And Smoky Quartz is my favourite fusion! Also, she's not fat, as her body is not an actual body. - PeriClod

35 It's a Huge Middle Finger to the LGBT Community

You clearly haven't watched the show.

So?! We all have problems that are uncool. Garnet is fine!

Garnet is not weak shes a fusion and shes very quick these are for haters who hat the show for dumb purpose

Garnet is the strongest crystal gem. She can take jasper out 'by herself' & is the crystal gem that pulls most of the weight on the missions they go on. Sure ruby & sapphire themselves r weak, but definitely not garnet.

37 The Onion Family Are Named Sour Cream, Vidalia, Onion, and Yellowtail

Seriously -_- Names of side characters. WOW you really are an idiot

38 Rose Quartz Teaches Us To Shatter Others Who Disagree From Us

Actually, she shattered her to free/save the Earth. It was going to be destroyed; and wasn't a simple disagreement. Also, it is shown that the gems feel bad about this. It seems that you are just looking for ways to hate the show. However, you may not be; I'm not one to make assumptions. Good day, sir/ ma'am/person.

! SPOILERS! (For those who care)
Actually the current episodes kind of make it seem like yellow diamond is actually the one that killed her. She seems extremely unemotional when PD death is mentioned, & when that lawyer accused her of killing PD, she completely flipped her lid, killed the lawyer & instantly wanted 'rose' to b shattered even when the lawyer had a point & said to disregard last point. She also seemed like she really wanted PD's army disposed of, & for no reason at all. So her actions point to her being very suspicious 😒

AND no. The bismuth episode proves that rose didn't want to shatter gems even if it would b an easy way to stop the war. So she actually teaches us that even if we do disagree, killing isn't the answer.

39 Concrete is Racist

Whoever wrote that the description is Sugars handwriting it's not. It's Hilary Florido. Also concrete was created by A BLACK MAN (Lamar Abrams).Concrete is literally just a concept drawing. If she was put on the show, they would probably change her design like most of the characters and the color because she was drawn WITH A BLACK MARKER. Just because she was drawn in that color doesn't mean she really has black skin. Whoever thinks Lamar made her design to be intentionally racist is a moron.

So, in the new artbook, there's a gem named Concrete that's a blatant minstrel blackface stereotype and described as not being able to read, and the description is in Sugar's handwriting.

40 Every Character is Either Really Fat or Really Skinny

Oh... What have I done, I wish my list was deleted by now, it's going way too far! Of course, I wasn't adding the other items in THIS list, this was the visitors. - bugger

I feel bad for bugger now (funny name though ) now people are blaming him for some of the topics, if this list was made for Steven Universe haters (like myself) then it should stay this way. We looked for this list on purpose with Google, Yahoo, Bing or whatever so it's not like someone who likes the show came to this list by accident, they came for the attack just to mess with us smart people. I wish you luck man in this cruel liberal world.

*rolls eyes* Leave Steven Universe alone my dude. It's a great show.

41 The Animation is Almost Always Off

The animation takes a long time to do, and it often comes out disappointing, just like the hair in 'Same old world'
Other things I think are horrible about the show.
The characters, the fact that they are over-powered beings that have abilities to control natural causes, summon dangerous weapons, and the fact they live until their gem gets 'shattered' is just truly disgusting.
Steven universe's fanbase is also, mostly annoying, just the other day I saw some pre-teens cosplaying on the street, oh my god. Here comes the hate comments from all these kids!

44 The writing is far too saccharine

This show has proven that it can tackle an array of themes with often heavy subject matters, from self-identity to familial, romantic and unhealthy relationships as well as some concepts of war (not many). However the major detriment the show is currently facing in my eyes is it's need to service it's demographic while maintaining an artistic and well written story as the narrative unfolds. These things are not exclusive but it appears that some of the writers are feeding their indulgence of the child-like tone and behaviours we saw and expected from the beginning of the show despite the (somewhat) severe changes some of the characters have now experienced. However as much time has passed as we would expect some narrative changes just as well to have occurred as with the characters themselves. This becomes especially frustrating when the rules of the world (and some characters actions) begin to bend back towards that child-like perspective when that veil has now been fully removed, ...more

45 The Gems Treat Greg Terribly and Unfairly

Aside from Pearl, who is jealous because he married the woman she loved, nobody dislikes Greg.

Ya... there's no arguing that. it's true. I love steven universe... but, yeah..

1. That's because they blamed him for rose's death. Not fair, but how would u treat someone who took a dear friend of urs away from u?
2. Pearl held in some jealousy at Greg because she loved rose & wanted to b with her. Again, not something that's good, but pearl didn't get what she wanted now, did she?
3. Amythest was mad at Greg because they stopped hanging out once rose & him got serious. Not fair to 'her,' huh?
4. With the help of Steven they actually treat Greg better now & aren't as rude as before & are starting to treat him with more respect.

46 It Wants to Be a 15 Minute Emotional Drama Aside from a Cartoon


The bismuth episode was amazing.

but I agree that sometimes there is a bit too much drama.

47 The Onion Family Doesn't Get Enough Screen Time

They are just side characters, dude.

49 The Characters are Annoying

No, this show isn't just for kids, ignorant commenter, it's for EVERYONE; everyone who enjoys wonderful characters, mature plotlines, and stellar songs. So yes, we "grown people" are still watching this show.

Lapis in season 3 and 4 is annoying.

They are so irrelevant - sadfag

Are you grown people still watching this show -_- this show is for kids so no wonder you people hate all these characters

50 Its Tone Doesn't Match Its Content

This is definitely something I have noticed about this show, especially in the later seasons. I think this has more to do with the writers penchant for delivering a child's perspective, but what they fail to recognize is the lack of change in this 'tone' over the course of the series so far as Steven himself MUST change and grow. I think they are looking at retaining the status quo more than delivering compelling content (in this regard mostly).

This is a serious issue. It's not farcical, and it's not a black comedy, so its tone should match what it's trying to get across. But it doesn't, creating bathos, which is amateur. It's badly-written and places too much emotion in places that causes it to come across as silly. - liliputian7

I don't know what "wonder land" you're living in, but on earth, the tone matches the content.

So love and fighting doesn't fit the colorful atmosphere hater alert
