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

The Top Ten

1 Only Girls Like It

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

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.

The show is honestly an insult to Christians as it portrays only LGBT characters and relationships. Think of how many parents will be heartbroken when their child, who was born into a straight family, suddenly turns gay after watching Steven Universe and never reproduces. How would you feel in this situation?

2 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.

This is literally facts. It's just lesbian bait.

3 Rose Kind of Replaced God

What?! - RoseWeasley

No, even though I hate the show

That makes no sense...!?

No. - LapisBob

The biggest similarity between those two is that they're both dead. - username_not_available

4 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.

How? - Ummmmmm

How? - RoseWeasley

Why would Steven Universe rip off a show with not even a 5.0/10 star rating?
Comparing this show to that insult is disgusting. - Qryzx

5 It's Overrated 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.

That doesn't mean it's bad. - RoseWeasley

What's with that picture? - RoseWeasley

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.

6 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.

Only thing that I agree - Panta

That is the only point on this list agree with

7 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

It is probably because of the filler episodes. Those made me stop watching the show since they were so boring. - LittleAwesomeApple

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

8 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.

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

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.

It is still a bit unfair for all of the gems but Steven to be female, and even then, cartoons these days usually feature both genders. The main character may be male, but Craig of the Creek, Teen Titans GO!, The Amazing World of Gumball, and We Bare Bears all have females as either supporting characters or main characters. - LittleAwesomeApple

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

9 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's not even obese or anything. He's just a bit chubby. - RoseWeasley

10 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

11 Opal is a Lesbian Fusion

First of all, gems don't have genders.
Second, Opal is a forced fusion because of the something bettle (I forgot it's name ) - Ummmmmm

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

Both are genderless lol - Panta

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

12 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?

But to be honest they are cute - Panta

They are rock humanoids, what did u expect - Panta

13 It's Not Exciting

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

"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 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.

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.

14 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

The hiatus is definitely ridiculous
It makes me hate the show most definitely

The hiatus gets more worse in the SU subreddit. Every day a post made, it goes like this, "Give it up to day XXX" with a weird poorly drawn pearl called cursed pearl. The user who spams this hasn't been banned yet. The subreddit is unbearable sometimes during hiatus.

15 Steven's Voice is More Annoying Than a Crying Baby.

Why is this made? Did you know that some actors actually come here, and see that tons of people are hating on them? - Ummmmmm

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

Okay, you're right. - RoseWeasley

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.

16 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!

Yes the songs are gay in boring just skip em - Psyluv

Whats the use of feeling blue - Panta

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.

17 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.

Oh no! Girls like girls! How scary! - RoseWeasley

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!

18 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.

19 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

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

He's a child, whats your excuse? - Panta

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.

20 The Disturbing Episodes

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

Grandpa crossover - Panta

The ONLY real reason for this whole list to exist.

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

21 Everybody is Overpowered

As if Pearl was ever bad - TheAwesomeDude54

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.

*cough cough* pearl - Panta

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.

22 Too Many Filler Episodes

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

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.

23 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!

No? gems are genderless? - Panta

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?

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

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

25 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

Not true. - RoseWeasley

connie - Panta

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

26 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.

27 Every Gem is a Female

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

Steven and Rainbow Quartz 2.0 are male. - RoseWeasley

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

They do not. They have a problem that none of the gems are male. If all of the gems were male, people would have the same problem, trust me. - LittleAwesomeApple

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.

28 Peridot is Annoying

Peridot lars onion are few of the best characters - Psyluv

How dare you peridot is the only good character in the show

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

29 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?

30 Steven's Last Name is Bad

Do you mean Universe or DeMayo? - RoseWeasley

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)

31 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.

32 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.

Bruh the main character is 14 why would it not be -_- - Ummmmmm

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.

1 Comment
33 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. - Ummmmmm

Basically, PInK PeARl iS wHITe PeArL - Ummmmmm

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!

34 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

1 Comment
35 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.

36 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?

37 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

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

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

38 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?

39 The Gems Treat Greg Terribly and Unfairly

No, the gems had actually invited Greg to live in their home - Ummmmmm

Amethyst actually admires Greg. - RoseWeasley

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

Watch more of the show.

40 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


41 Concrete is Racist

True dat. - RoseWeasley

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.

42 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.

43 Garnet is Weak

Garnet is actually the most respected and strongest. - Ummmmmm

You've never seen one SU episode. - RoseWeasley

You clearly haven't watched the show.

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

44 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

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

What - Ummmmmm

The fusion thing is literally dragon ball just saying

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

This makes now sense, whatsoever.

46 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.

47 Every Character is Either Really Fat or Really Skinny

Uh, wow. Offensive? - Ummmmmm

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

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

48 Slow Story Progression


49 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.
