The Cheeseburger Backpack is a backpack that was delivered to Steven in the episode "Cheeseburger Backpack". It is styled as a cheeseburger. Since purchasing it, Steven has taken it with him in various episodes.

Steven purchased it from Wacky Sacks Supply Company, and it was delivered to him by Jamie, the mailman.

In "Snow Day", it was revealed that Steven rarely uses the backpack. As of "The Future", it is now owned by Onion.


The backpack is similar to the shape and appearance of a cheeseburger. The layers of the cheeseburger consist of two buns, lettuce, cheese, meat, and tomato. There is also a white handle at the 'tomato' section. Each filling is a pocket, and each pocket has a zipper to open it. The burger bun also appears to have sesame seeds on it.

Pearl noticed how much the backpack can hold in the episode "Cheeseburger Backpack" when Steven was packing for the trip to the Lunar Sea Spire, asking, "Did you bring your whole room?"

Various Uses

The backpack, despite its cartoonish appearance, is a surprisingly useful tool for Steven and has been used to carry many important items.

  • "Cheeseburger Backpack": Steven uses the backpack for holding various items. The items we see are Mr. Queasy, sweaters, a raft, bagels, and sunscreen.
  • "Frybo": Steven uses it for carrying a Gem Shard. He accidentally leaves it at the Funland Arcade but is later seen again in future episodes.
  • "Lion 2: The Movie": Steven and Connie use it to carry their snacks to the movie theater.
  • "Ocean Gem": Steven uses it to pack for the road trip to get the ocean back from Lapis.
  • "On the Run" (mentioned): When Steven says that his bindle can't hold enough food for him and a Raccoon, Amethyst asks him why he didn't just bring his backpack, suggesting that his backpack could easily fit two lunches. However, Steven decided not to bring his backpack because it could not fit into his bindle.
  • "The Return": While Steven and Bill Dewey are organizing an evacuation of Beach City in the wake of the Gem Warship's arrival, Greg and the other Crystal Gems pack Steven's belongings into his backpack, intending to have him evacuate with the rest of the citizens. However, he returned to the Gems to help fight nonetheless.
  • In the mobile RPG game: Attack the Light, Steven's backpack is used to store the items he finds or buys on his journey with the Gems.
  • "Keystone Motel": Garnet is seen carrying the Cheeseburger Backpack when entering the motel room.
  • "Unboxing" (short): Steven shows it to the viewers and mentions how much he loves it and how frequently he uses it, hence why he purchased another Wacky Sack, the Hot Dog Duffel Bag.
  • "Gem Hunt": Steven uses it to carry board games during the mission in case he and Connie got bored.
  • "Snow Day": Garnet packs Cat Steven into the backpack.
  • "The Future": Onion is seen with the backpack when Steven leaves Beach City.
