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

The Top Ten

Only Girls Like It

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

What the heck! I am a boy and me and my brother love this show! It doesn't mean that most of the characters are girls. The show even is my number one show I am watching in cn. If your a steven universe hater then realise that this show is the light for cn and probably is the only cn series with action this is the only series in cn which is thousand times better than any other show such as the today cartoons (ppg reboot or even Ben 10 reboot) and an the remake of Teen titans and even if I ask all the boys my class at school they will say Steven universe is the best all of them said that not even one disagrees. I watched the finale of steven universe (Change your Mind) and it was the best I have ever seen. I can tell that this show is not only for girls but for boys I love every song from steven universe and the plot is great so I am a boy and what I tell of steven universe that it is the greatest show I have ever seen and I love watching their episodes everyday so I tell Steven ...more

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

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.

SJWs pervert the valid insights of both the political-economic theories of Marx and the critical theorists. They adopt post-modernism to attack the beliefs of traditionalists (who ought to be productively and legitimately criticised where necessary) yet play the reactionary when they feel like it, assuming a pre-modernist certitude in their parroted positions. It is not even that they are all talk, which they are when they talk at all, but their talk precludes almost any actions worth taking; their actions are mere diversions into LARPing the rebel protagonist against the successful and willful of the species (men and women of any race--their intersectional tripe invoking the no true Scotsman fallacy: you are Bourgeois, you are enemy now, and no longer belong to your "oppressed category."

All great minds came from the bourgeoisie of their era: luxury affords brilliance; the point is to spread the opportunity and the capital for the benefit of all individuals.

Shows like ...more

Started off good, then it tapered off into pandering for the LGBT community. Kids don't care about your identity problems, they want distractions from their own problems. Idolizing characters from this series will only further alienate them from their peers. No excuses for bad storytelling and animation.

Did you hear how a girl was driven to suicide for drawing Rose skinny?

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?

It Ripped Off Teen Titans Go!

Whoever wrote this needs to be banished to a dark oblivion.

The superior show that is Steven Universe is nothing like that pile of crap you call Teen Titans Go.

So you're saying Steven Universe is worse than Teen Titans Go? Worse than annoying songs and twerking? - IceBearRules

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

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

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!

This list should not been allowed. This list should be deleted.

That is only because you are a Steven Universe fan that can not take opinions. - LittleAwesomeApple

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.

That girl actually drew Rose correctly! Rose was supposed to be skinny, not fat like a pound cake (or whatever they call her) because Pink Diamond is skinny and Rose is Pink Diamond!

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 agree, the fanbase is the most disgusting fanbase ever, I mean, look at these people defending steven universe, their grammar is using uppercase for every beginning letter for each word, oh my god.

Boring and Unfunny

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

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

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

Well its sorta funny but yes it is indeed boring like the connection between Lars and the geek NO ONE CARES

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.

Stop whining. It may not have many male characters, but the ones that are there are amazing. Example: Greg Universe.
By that logic, We Bare Bears insults women. - RoseWeasley

Haha, how does this insult us men? Just because it has female characters does not mean that it insults us...

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.

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.

I love how everyone flames Steven for being fat, but nobody says a word about Rose Quartz. - RoseWeasley

He never stops crying or putting others in danger a complete lame cowardly loser that happens to be piggishly chubby from donuts to pizza in fries eating way to much - Psyluv

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

That I can agree on, and have reasons explaining why. And how she defuses is so silly and redundant (I'll explain more of that later)


The Contenders

Opal is a Lesbian Fusion

1. Amethyst isn't lesbian.
2. And technically, Pearl isn't, since she has no gender.
3. Even if she was, why does it matter? - RoseWeasley

Pearl and Amethyst are genderless,idiot.

Honestly Opel only happens when Amethyst and Pearl absolutely have to fuse

Both are genderless lol - Panta

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.

To me, it's not that they are weird looking. I just personally don't like the designs. Have you see some fanmade designs? They have more intriguing concepts and good design shillouette in my opinion. I'm so sorry but visual aspect is also a point that makes a show good. Some people like story more than visual aspects but some others like visual aspects more, and who are you to say that because you like story aspects more than visual, you are somehow better than other people?

It's Not Exciting

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

The show goes nowhere. The characters haven't progressed since the start of the show. The action tends to be boring since it rarely evolve from brute strength battles.

"Okay, whoever wrote this hasn't seen the new episodes."
This just really implies that the half first of this show was objectively unexciting.

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.

Long Hiatuses

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

Cartoon Network is the one in charge of the shows schedule, so you can't really blame the show itself, but the amount of hiatuses this show has gone on is ridiculous. No one wants to wait three months for an episode about Ronaldo role-playing as a Crystal Gem. - PanicAtTheHurricane

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.

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.

But the voice actor now has to be really high pitched in order to get Steven's voice right which is quite annoying.

I think this is what drives me up a wall.

Clearly you haven't seen the later episodes of season 1. - ThatPastelTho

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

The score is so bad. It doesn't even convey the tones of the current scene correctly. If there's a fight scene, they'll insert some happy sounding bs song. THAT'S NOT HOW SOUNDTRACKS WORK! If there's a fight scene, epic music must be played along with it, or else it will not look good. For an example of a good soundtrack that emotes correctly, look to the star wars movies.

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.

Who cares if you are religious people can be gay or be lesbians if they want. - Ummmmmm

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.

Sure, gay people have the rights to exist and be who they are. But you don't need to shove homosexuality in our faces!

Okay, what?

The person below me has commented that Ruby and Sapphire "Look like little kids" and are "too young for that stuff". Gay teens and younger kids exist. Hell, I'm one. Second, how does this make Rebecca look like a "feminazi"? She's not saying all men are bad and disgusting? Literally all she did was put a lesbian couple in her show and have the other characters accept them. How is that bad?

It's Not Really Funny

I totally agree that the jokes aren't funny! The only show on cartoon network that makes me laugh is the amazing world of gumball, since being a 13 year old boy, I can easily understand the jokes. But with steven universe, it's just weird stuff I don't understand.

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

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?

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.

Steven is Annoying

Sure, he can be annoying and is also a total dumbass, but he's also brave and compassionate, and is willing to fight to the death to protect humanity. He shows that you don't have to be smart to be a good person, and that's what I enjoy about him. - RoseWeasley

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.

Steven should of been a side character connie should of been the mc - Psyluv

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

Literally the only thing on this show I dislike, and there were only two and they're both in the first season.

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.

Not really, I would like you to tell me one character that is overrated

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

Well I mean I agree with first episodes season 2/3/4/5 - Panta

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

Too Much LGBT Content

I don't understand why people are having this "don't shove it down our throats" mentality like the LGBTQ is a thing your child is and will be surrounded by it. It's better if they get used to is now instead of having them confused when they see two men or women together because you blocked them from reality. This show's targeted audience is young teens and if your an adult watching this you should be over it by now, you don't have to accept it but don't be but hurt by something that doesn't effect you

The lgbt propaganda in this is very annoying even found a article on the internet titled steven universe made me gay or something like that - Psyluv

Oh no, a children's show portrays characters that don't appeal to homophobic hate that has caused many killings and dramatically increased suicide rates from certain groups? What ever shall the high class, hateful, straight white conservative do?! What a tragedy!

Subtle liberal agenda attempting to move the line of acceptability.

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.

Art is amazing story bland decent how fast it ended the show should of followed lars more when he was in space thanks to the show being all about steven the story seemed to force the plots to put him in each scene the side characters saved the show is it worth rewatching probably not - Psyluv

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

Jenny and Kiki Don't Get Enough Screen Time Because They are Black

Jenny and Kiki don't get a lot of screen time because they are side characters - Ummmmmm

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

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

This is so stupid, it's funny.

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.

Peridot became annoying ever since Catch And Release. But at least she's funnier than when she first appears.

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...

Garnet doesn't even have a gender.

Every Gem is a Female

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

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

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.

They are gender less.
Now I don't know if you are a troll or not because you completely changed your profile info to non steven universe biased hate stuff. - Skullkid755

The Story is All Over the Place. It Makes No Sense.

I think the writing staff had an idea of where to take the series, but after Season 3, they just lost all direction and now the story just spirals in the most random directions.

It doesn't help the series has one of the slowest story progressions ever, with about 5-10 filler episodes for 1-3 story driven episode. And every time there is story progression, the series rapidly speeds up for the sake of speeding up.

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?

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)

I would love that last name

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 my personal least favorite character due to the fact that she hasn't changed in all the seasons I've watched. She's annoying, worthless, and a flat character overall. The only change I've born witness to is a change of her shirt color. I thought Jasper's character development was awful, but she was written off the show in a couple of seasons, while Amethyst just won't leave.

Amethyst is fabulous, haters.

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.

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.

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

We Have Not Seen Pink Pearl or White Pearl Yet

Here's my theory: Pearl was given to Pink because of a incident Pink Pearl had made. Pink Pearl worked for White but hadn't obeyed so, White used her powers so Pink Pearl would do everything she did.

How does this make the show bad! Be patient! EVERY IMPORTANT PART OF THE SHOW NEEDS TO HAVE A RIGHT TIME TO SHOW

Sorry, if you haven't seen the newest episode, do it!

Who is Pearl's original Diamond and what happens if Pink Pearl was gone?

The Onion Family are Named Sour Cream, Vidalia, Onion, and Yellowtail

Sour cream vidalia and onion could get their own shows would be interesting 2 watch

I'm gonna name my kid Sour Cream

So? - Willow12


The Onion Family Doesn't Get Enough Screen Time

They are just side characters, dude.

And you were just complaining about their names. your probably a 7 year old who can’t accept shows that aren’t silly billy fatty pizza joke. AND NOTHING IS WRONG WITH HEFTY PEOPLE, OR GAYS. Go home, your judge mental.

Steven's Dad is an Idiot

Steven's dad is awesome

Yeah but he's nicer than everyone else but Steven and Connie so

No he's not- speak for yourself.

Greg helped steven & the gems a lot of times with problems they had. He's just a relax dude who does what he likes. But he's 'stupid' for that?

Rose Quartz Teaches Us to Shatter Others Who Disagree from Us

Wow, humans are gems?! Where's my bubble? Where's my gem? Where's my shield? - Ummmmmm

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.

What the? Your just making excuses! - Willow12

But the gem she "shattered" was a different form of herself - RoseWeasley

Steven Does Not Act Serious Majority of the Time.

You clearly haven't watched the new episodes. - toptenzen

Yeah, during the first half or so of Season 1. He's matured lately.

Yea when he entered the palace and amathyst and pearl were like shh steven we really need to go.. Steven's like THIS IS PERFECT NOW WE CAN ALL EAT TOGETHER BREAKFAST garnets like go steven.. Steven's Like COME ON GARNET WERE ALL TOGETHER NOW now I'm 14 and this is a retard until he fuses with connie.

So the show's not funny but Steven is too funny?

The Gems Treat Greg Terribly and Unfairly

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

Watch more of the show.

Amethyst actually admires Greg. - RoseWeasley

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

It's a Huge Middle Finger to the LGBT Community

I'm a lesbian and I want the gems to stick their huge middle finger in my lgbt community - 906389


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.

True dat. - RoseWeasley

Cursed Pearl

Give it up for day whatever. Type in cursed pearl on reddit to understand why.

This and the fanbase are are the most agreeable items.

Garnet is Weak

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

She beat up Jasper, and she is really lovable, too...

Its Tone Doesn't Match Its Content

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

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).

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

The Show is a Rip-Off If Every Anime that Stars a Female Hero

As a Steven Universe AND anime fan, I take offense to this.

But Steven is a guy... - FluffyBanana

But...the main character of this show is male...

This makes now sense, whatsoever.

All the Constant Crying

Even by season 4 he still acts like a toddler example the ep where steven asked his dad to climb a fence what a crybaby cubby loser afraid of seeing one get hurt and cryin when he thinks he wont see someone again his selfish personality has put a few in danger - Psyluv

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.

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.

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.

Yes, because Steven Universe lovers are dumb for coming to a list. Very smart, bud. - SilverstreamSucks

Ruby, Jade, Stevonnie, the zoo Amethysts & Jaspers, Rhodonite, Lemon Jade, Rainbow Quartz, & the Diamonds have pretty normal waists. - RoseWeasley

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

Slow Story Progression


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!

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
