** Once you get down to it, the entire cast fits in some way or another. The main character is named Ruby Rose, and is associated with [[ColorMotif red]] and [[FlowerMotif roses]]. Weiss Schnee literally translates to [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] in German, [[FairytaleMotifs which she is themed around]]. Blake is a first name generally [[TomboyishName given to boys]] that means "black" in Old English, also alluding to her ColorMotif; in addition, her last name Belladonna refers to the the Creator/{{Disney}} adaptation of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Finally, Yang Xiao Long translates to roughly "Small Sun Dragon" in Chinese, hinting at both her ColorMotif (again) and her [[PlayingWithFire fire-based abilities]]. And that's just the main cast.

** Pyrrha Nikos' surname translates to "victor of the people", referencing her status as TheAce and her compassion for those weaker than her. (Her first name means 'flame-colored', and [[PropheticName predicts]] her [[SignificantGreenEyedRedhead bright red hair]].) Pyrrha is also said to be the name Achilles takes when he crossdresses to hide. [[spoiler:[[AchillesHeel She is also struck down the same way Achilles is]].]]
