** There's possibly one that a lot of people don't seem to realize. [[spoiler:Sure, Lapis has succumbed to a pretty tragic fate, and so has Jasper, but it's possible the ultimate, ''completely innocent'' victim here is Malachite herself. It's been shown that, in addition to developing a personality that is more or less a combination of their parts, fusions have some level of their own sentience. If that's true, Malachite is an at least somewhat sentient, conscious being, trapped at the bottom of the ocean with a civil war going on in her mind. She's somewhat reminiscent of a person with a severe mental illness, such as multiple personality disorder or schizophrenia, [[FateWorseThanDeath trapped]] [[{{Metaphorgotten}} at the bottom of the ocean]] [[FateWorseThanDeath with no one to hear her scream.]] And if her rather disturbed-looking thousand yard stare we see in Chille Tid is anything to go by... If she ever emerges, it very likely will be tragic.]]

** Believe it or not, but [[spoiler: ''Peridot'' gets elevated to JerkassWoobie status in Catch and Release. Her increasing desperation to get off world is fueled by the fact that whatever The Cluster is, it has the potential to destroy the planet and she doesn't want to die on some cold forgotten rock far from home. She has a striking similarity with Lapis in that regard. It also isn't helped that without her [[ArtificialLimbs limb enhancements]], she is basically as powerless as a child, is barely taller than ''Steven'', and may very well be the Gem equivalent ''of a child.'' She hasn't even once shown to possess any kind of power, meaning that even Steven has more ways to defend himself from harm than her. One who was serving in the military and feels like she's been forgotten about on an unknown rock where the only people who even know she's there have wanted to kill her every time they see her. Kudos to her for holding together this long, but she was gonna snap eventually. Additionally, that she reverts to animalistic movements when parted from her limb enhancers carries some disturbing implications about her life on Homeworld.]]
*** And as of Message Received, [[spoiler:it's gotten even worse for her. After having been treated probably nicer than she ever has been before by Steven, she dials up Yellow Diamond in full expectation that she can see the value in keeping humans and maybe even the Crystal Gems around...only for Diamond's own psychotic hatred of Rose to get in the way, with all of her dreams of finally getting home thrown back in her face and deliberately crushed. Small wonder she spends the next episode in a TroubledFetalPosition.]]

** For fans not fond of the Uncle Grandpa crossover, the fact that it went out of it's way to state within the first two minutes that it's not to be considered canon, and that it was more of an [[BreatherEpisode excuse to cut loose for the sake of one-off humor]] greatly helped its reception in the fandom.

** While not perfect, "Say Uncle", the Uncle Grandpa crossover, was much better received than originally anticipated thanks to the number of fandom nods and in-jokes.

** Could many of Pearl's character traits be the result of being (the Gem equivalent of) Autistic? She displays numerous traits typically associated with AspergerSyndrome in particular: taking hyperbole, sarcasm, and humor literally (eg: Steven's "Butter-fly" joke); an inability to pick up on social cues, difficulties empathizing with those she doesn't have a close connection with (ie: most humans), being ultra-logical most of the time but highly anxious and emotional in stressful situations, and trouble understanding other people's perspectives - such as Amethyst's in On the Run. Given that the other Gems can seem to glean a basic understanding of earth and its inhabitants, Pearl's behavior may not be explainable by reference to her outsider status alone. Many Autistic SU fans see Pearl as Autistic or the Gem version thereof.

** The all-out fight between [[spoiler: Amethyst and Pearl]] in 'On The Run'. Amethyst's tragic backstory took many by storm.

** After the reveal that [[spoiler: all gem monsters are in fact, crystal gems trapped in a different form]], Monster Buddies just got a whole extra layer of TearJerker. Mmm, bittersweet.

** Peridot's increasing annoyance at the Crystal Gems constantly hassling her in previous episodes may have made for some funny moments, but it takes a decided turn for the tragic in Catch and Release, [[spoiler: where it's revealed that not only is she basically powerless (and possibly a child) without her ArtificialLimbs, but her increasing desperation was due in no small part to the fact that she is completely isolated on Earth, has received no contact from Yellow Diamond and has no Robonoids to help her, and is scared out of her mind at the prospect of still being around when The Cluster hatches and possibly wipes out everything on Earth. Let the CryForTheDevil reactions ensue.]]
