Rocknaldo is the 18th episode of the fourth season of Steven Universe, and the 121st episode overall.


In Beach City, Ronaldo sets out to find all the rock people who live there.

Why Ronaldo Sucks

  1. It is another episode dedicated to Ronaldo, who is one of the show’s most hated characters.
  2. As usual, Ronaldo is not very likable, since he decides to join the Crystal Gems and live at their house, only to end up constantly bossing Steven for the whole episode, and blaming Connie for copying him. He is also just horrible to Steven throughout it.
    • Additionally, he never shuts up about the fact that he is a part of the Crystal Gems, which gets very annoying!
  3. Just like Keep Beach City Weird, it is another filler episode that does not move the story along whatsoever.
  4. Also like the former, the main Crystal Gems are given far less screen time and focus, with most of it on Ronaldo and Steven.
  5. Hypocrisy: Ronaldo tells Steven that Connie ripped off his "gem weapon" while he is the one who ripped off her "Gem Weapon"
  6. The line: "Is that love? Is that acceptance? Maybe you're the one that isn't a Crystal Gem. I think you need to leave and think about stuff."

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The voice acting and animation were still good as usual.
  2. Since Ronaldo is gone out of the house by the end, we can forget this episode ever happened.
    • Additionally, Ronaldo doesn’t get much more screen time after this episode.
  3. Ronaldo saw the errors in his ways


Rocknaldo received negative reviews. It is the lowest-rated episode in the series, with only a 5.4 score on IMDb.
