Tropes present

  • 419 Scam: It's revealed that the Rose Quartz Hostess Club, who run the Zoomen's bank, fell for one and gave the sender (who they thought was Steven) their credit card information.
  • The Abridged Series: Essentially one to Steven Universe Future, though it tells the story significantly differently.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Pink Pearl / Volleyball is hit with this, being portrayed as Pink Diamond's jilted, aggressive ex who has a bitter rivalry with our Pearl for being Pink's "sloppy seconds". In the same episode, Shell — the Reef's AI — is portrayed here as a sarcastic, cynical quipper who communicates through Discord.
    • More broadly, nearly every character is given this treatment. The most obvious example of this is found in "Snow Safety", where a game of Steven Tag escalates to the point where the Gems murder Steven in their Sardonyx form.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In "No Room For You", Main Lapis, Nice Lapis and Mean Lapis are revealed to have been part of the same terraforming team during the Great Gem War. They didn't get along so well.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Shell in "Pearl Vs. Pearl" is implied to have tried to rejuvinate the Pearls to spite Steven for deactivating her two years prior. In the original show, Shell was simply an AI that had no moral compass.
    Steven: Shell, stop it! I didn't ask you to do that!
    Shell: And I didn't ask to be made inoperational for the rest of my life until I rot, did I? Thanks a lot, Steven Universe.

  • Alpha Bitch: The rogue Lapises, who even quote Heathers to drive the point home.
  • Auto-Tune: The voice used for Steven's Pink form is just his original voice, but autotuned.
  • Bad Boss: Lapis was this to the rogue Lapises during the war, though in a twist it turns out this was largely unintentional—she was overprotective, concerned with their image and temperamental, which made the other two afraid of her. It's made clear that she regrets this now.
  • Blood Knight: Jasper retains this personality trait from her original counterpart.
    Steven: Your livelihood was war!
    Jasper: My livelihood was fucking awesome!
  • Broken Aesop: Played for Laughs in "Snow Safety", where the message Sunstone gives after doing a safety assessment of Steven & Co.'s actions is to sell guns to children.
    Sunstone: What are my thoughts on gun safety?
    Sunstone: (while parachuting off of a cliff) Haha, Fuck gun safety!
  • The Cameo: Spinel makes a brief audio-only one in which she sets off the events of episode four.
  • Comically Missing the Point: While pointing out how ridiculous the Buzzfeed quiz is, one of the questions he mentions is "Has a relative or loved one passed away?"
    Amethyst: [Beat]
    Amethyst: Steven.
  • Critical Research Failure: Multiple times in-universe.
    Wy-Six: Yeah, it's when your bank erupts!
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: In "No Room For You", Lapis' flashback reveals that during thee Gem War, Homeworld used to spread the claim that the reason so many gems have been deserting them for the rebels is because the Crystal Gems "kidnapped and brainwashed" them. Obviously we know this is a lie.
  • I Am the Noun: In "Pearl vs. Pearl", Mega Pearl refers to herself as "The Bitch" and in "Snow Safety", Amythest refers to herself as "HR."
  • Leitmotif: Pink Steven's is "Password", which was composed by series creator Jake Neutron.
  • Manipulative Editing: Edits the Future intro to say "I can't cum." in "Pearl vs. Pearl."
  • Madness Mantra: A very brief one for Greg in "Dead Moms".
    Greg: Dead.
    Steven: Dad?
    Greg: Wife.
    Pearl: Greg?
    Greg: Dead.
    Garnet: Greg.
    Greg: Wife.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • In "The Callback", Steven references a fight with Jasper in which she used Pearl as a sword, to which Amethyst asks where she was for that.
    • One is referenced in "Snow Safety"
    Pearl: Steven, are we back to the night terrors again? You're on the floor.
    • Greg mentions one on his life advice tapes for Steven in "Dead Moms".
    Greg: ...and that's why you should never mix kitty litter with bleach!
  • One-Woman Wail: Parodied in "Dead Moms" after Steven calls out Holly Blue for ragging on him while he's unknowingly within earshot.
  • Only Sane Man: The Rose Quartz that looks the most like Steven's mother is the most level-headed member of the Rose Quartz Hostess Club, taking the time to talk to Steven about the scam at length and apologizing for the incompetence of her staff.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Jasper's "camouflage", which amounts to putting a grey sheet over her body. It doesn't even fully cover her.
  • Precision F-Strike: Used very liberally in this series.
  • Shout-Out: The title "Dead Moms" is one to Beetlejuice, referencing a song from that show.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Steven delivers one to Jasper in "The Callback"
  • Skewed Priorities: Lampshaded by Amethyst in "Snow Safety", pointing out that Steven says he has no time to go to therapy yet he has time to fill out a Buzzfeed quiz about why he doesn't need therapy.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: Averted. While Mega Pearl sings "Understand the Sky", Steven spends most of the time freaking out and trying to come up with ways to exit the Reef.
  • Theme Tune: Starting with "Snow Safety", the series uses an abridged version of "Understand the Sky" from "Pearl vs. Pearl".
  • Trauma Button: Much like the original series, Steven coming into contact with a Rose Quartz sets this off. In this version, however, he just starts screaming and doesn't stop for a very, very long time.
  • Villain Song: The two Lapises get one in "No Room for You", titled after the episode itself.
