** In the episode ''Rocknaldo'', Ronaldo realizes that he's misjudged the Crystal Gems and decides to join them so that he can truly understand and help their cause. But when the Gems go on a mission, they don't allow Ronaldo to join for fear of him becoming TheLoad, which leads to him spending the whole episode acting like {{Jerkass}} to Steven, which leads to Steven [[WhatTheHellHero calling him out]]. While the Gems' decision [[JustifiedTrope was understandable]], and he still learned something by the end, not allowing him to come effectively squandered a golden opportunity for Ronaldo to see what the Gems do first hand, gain deeper respect for them, and allow for positive CharacterDevelopment for him. It also could have allowed the episode to incorporate action [[spoiler:while also giving the show an equally viable means of showcasing the gem that was [[HypeBacklash hyped in marketing but turned out to be Ronaldo's Gemsona.]]]]

** Ronaldo on the other end of the BrokenBase. While he is definitely far from a saint, most of his more malicious acts can be blamed on [[ChaoticStupid stupidity]] rather than straight up villainy.

** Ronaldo is slowly getting there in Season 3, showing his more redeeming qualities like his vast technical knowledge (cars, anime, etc) and also showing him have more normal relationships and friendships with the people around Beach City. The TakeThatScrappy moments he gets might also help. Sadly, due to him being incredibly obnoxious and a jerk to Steven, "Rocknaldo" pretty much undid all of this, although his JerkassRealization at the end may lead to it being redone in future episodes. Nevertheless, he remains a BaseBreakingCharacter.

*** The quality of the animation has recently been the subject of much controversy, and there are apparently three groups of people regarding the subject; One group finds that the animation goes OffModel far too often (due to clashing animator styles), that there's no consistency with how the characters look, and that compared to the first season, the animation has changed ''very dramatically''. The other side of the spectrum argues that OffModel animation can be used for humor, that hand-drawn animation is hard to consistently stay on-model, and that the series has updated its look to accommodate the other artists. Some find a neutral middle ground, saying that while they wouldn't call the animation as a whole terrible, there are certain moments that were not done well.

Added DiffLines:

** Among the [[HypeBacklash other]] [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot problems]] [[TookALevelInJerkass with]] Rocknaldo, it's a textbook case of this, coming off as preachy, and doing little more than mocking the show's detractors.

The TakeThatScrappy moments he gets might also help. Solidified in "Rocknaldo", which goes through an entire typical Ronaldo story in its first couple minutes before moving on to something much more interesting, showing how much he's developed and how determined he is to improve himself.
