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.
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.
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.

- “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.
