**
Neptune Vasillias is apparently afraid of large bodies of water. This is lampshaded in ''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi''.''WebAnimation/RWBYChibi''.
** Also the Branwen twins, Qrow and Raven. The name "Branwen" means "White Crow" or "Blessed Crow", but the twins are neither of these things, albeit in different ways. For the white part, their color schemes are comprised of blacks, reds, and dark grays. For the blessed part, Raven abandoned her family so she could [[spoiler: become the leader of tribe of wandering cut-throats who destroy villages]], while Qrow, who is nurturing and kind to his family members, [[spoiler: has a Semblance that [[WindsOfDestinyChange causes bad luck to anyone in his immediate vicinity]], [[PowerIncontinence whether he wants it to or not]]]]. Qrow's ImageSong even lampshades this:
--> I am no one's blessing/I'll just bring you harm.
