** Garnet telling Pearl how proud she should be of all she's accomplished on her own in "Friend Ship," after it's revealed that [[spoiler:Pearls are a ServantRace who aren't believed to have any intelligence beyond following their orders. Crystal Gem Pearl's very existence is in defiance of countless years of this kind of thinking.]]

Nope.
*** Despite appearing in only a handful of episodes, Lapis Lazuli is very popular, particularly since she's TheWoobie on a TraumaCongaLine. *** At the time, Ruby and Sapphire appeared in just one episode at the Season 1 finale, but they quickly became extremely popular subjects for fanart of the series. [[spoiler:The fact that they're Garnet's fusion components helps too, which endears them a lot to the LGBT community.]] Their surprise reappearance in "Keystone Motel" made the fandom descend into a collective squee fest.

And when their past was shown in "The Answer", well...

*** From the same above episode we also have quite a few fanarts of [[spoiler: Blue Diamond.]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Although the show is able to keep a fairly lighthearted and child-friendly tone most of the time, it has used [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything metaphors]] for lots of fun subjects such as losing a loved one, abusive relationships, consent, [[FantasticRacism racism/sexism/homophobia]], and intercourse.

** Quite possibly the biggest example of this is the episode "Keeping It Together" where Garnet ''gets on the verge of a mental breakdown after witnessing the remnants of the mass destruction of innocent crystal gems who were forced to fuse together'', an allegory for non-consensual sex. Oh, and there's lots of BodyHorror for the whole family there, to.

* FandomBerserkButton: - In general, a lot of the criticism of the show's fandom comes from these Berserk Buttons in some way, shape or form.

* FandomBerserkButton: ** For some people, drawing porn of any of the characters lands them in hot water warmer than the surface of the sun in the eyes of the fandom, mostly from the more morally-concerned fans who are worried about children finding smut whilst looking up what is potentially their favourite cartoon.

** In general, casually mentioning or having obvious avatars of [[spoiler:non-Crystal Gems such as Lapis or Peridot]] can annoy some fans, as many are desperately trying to keep their identities hidden for the sake of those trying to watch the show without being spoiled.

Some users take this to such an extreme that many newcomers to the fandom who coincidentally have these characters as their avatars are frequently ostracised or even threatened with violence for doing so.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: A number of moments could qualify the show for this, but the most notable examples would probably be Steven begging for help as he's turned into a formless blob of cats, nearly dying when taken prisoner by the hand ship, and the implications of what the Homeworld did to the Cluster.

** [[AllInTheManual The Guide to the Crystal Gems]] stated that Opal was only ''occasionally'' forgetful. Fans, however, ran with this and have portrayed Opal as being constantly forgetful, up to the point of ''[[UpToEleven forgetting that she was a fusion]]''.
