* StrongButUnskilled: What Jaune lacks in formal training or talent, he makes up for by having an enormously-strong Aura and great physical strength as well. He's the only character never shown to actually lose his Aura in combat, despite taking an immense beating, he wears very heavy armor that still doesn't slow him down, and in Volume 4, he's able to stop [[spoiler: the Nuckelavee's charge at a vulnerable Ren and Nora]] cold by himself with brute strength.

* ForgottenFallenFriend: She's barely mentioned at all past Volume 3, and what little mentions she ''does'' get are quickly eclipsed and glossed over by the plot.

The [[{{Deuteragonist}} secondary team]] of the show, JNPR (pronounced Juniper) is comprised of [[TheLeader Jaune Arc]], [[GenkiGirl Nora Valkyrie]], [[TheAce Pyrrha Nikos]] and [[TheQuietOne Lie Ren]]. Unlike team RWBY, JNPR fell into the team role much more easily: Jaune became good friends with Pyrrha over the initiation, while Nora and Ren were ChildhoodFriends. Thus, they're more down-to-earth, but no less [[HiddenDepths problematic]] or competent than the main team. [[spoiler: After Pyrrha's death, they temporarily form Team RNJR with Ruby.]]

* StrongerThanTheyLook: Jaune is certainly not as scraggly as he's been called. He can pull amazing feats of strength, such as beheading an Ursa Major with a single strike despite being a novice. [[spoiler:He can also withstand the full strikes of enormous Grimm such as the Nuckelavee, which couldn't get past Jaune's defences even with a full charge. Jaune's shield has been stated to be very heavy, but he can combine it with his sword to create a very heavy, two-edged weapon that he can still swing about with ease.]]

* TrueCompanions: Have grown into this over time, especially in Volume 4



* StrongerThanTheyLook: Jaune is certainly not the scraggly he's been called as he has pulled amazing feats of strength several times. Most notable cases are stopping attacks from enourmous Grimm such as [[spoiler:the kwhich couldn't get pass Jaune's defense even with a full charge.]]

* BoringButPractical: Especially when compared to all the other weapons. They seem to have absolutely no awesome function beyond a collapsible shield but they are a very standard and reliable weapon set, the sword being capable of [[OffWithHisHead decapitating an Ursa Major]], and the shield being able to withstand a [[ScaryScorpions Death Stalker's attack.]] Furthermore, the simple sword-and-board style works very well for Jaune, because he lacks the combat training and Aura ability to use something fancy like Ruby's [[ExoticWeaponSupremacy Crescent Rose]].
** [[spoiler: Even after having his weapon upgraded in Volume 4, it still falls under this trope. By combining the sword with it's sheath, Crocea Mors can transform & be wielded as a two-handed broadsword. Still a completely ordinary weapon by the world's standards, but the added weight of the shield, combined with a two-handed grip, lets Jaune put a lot more force into each swing.]]

* AmbiguousSituation: After her origins are shown, it is retroactively unclear how much of her present day pep is genuine, and how much it is being a StepfordSmiler.



* ShipTease: She's fully aware that she and Ren are extremely close, but in case anyone gets the wrong idea, they're not ''that'' close. However, the person she keeps trying to explain the JustFriends situation to... is ''herself''. When Jaune asks Ren for dating advice on the assumption he and Nora have been involved for a while, a very embarrassed Nora corrects his misconception. Her ImageSong makes it clear she's in love with Ren but doesn't know if he feels the same way. As of the Volume 4 finale, he seems to be reciprocating.

* RetractableWeapon: Jaune's shield collapses down into the sheath for his sword when he doesn't need it. It still weighs the same, though, as pointed out by Ruby. [[spoiler: Jaune takes advantage of this in Volume 4, giving the shield a deployable sharpened edge, letting him wield the [[SheatheStrike sheathed sword]] in something akin to a short, heavy two-handed blade.]]
