** Ruby, Yang, and Blake's cheer of 'Banzai!' and a lean to one side in the room-reorganizing sequence is a reference to Fuu, Mugen and Jin using the same phrase and lean in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''

** The Team RWBY combo attacks were all basically some for of dual tech, a system used in ChronoTrigger. Ladybug (Ruby/Blake) begin their attack with [[Videogame/RivalSchools Eiji "Edge" Yamada's Team Up Super]], ending the combo with an X-cut straight out of ChronoTrigger. The combo attacks were also inspired by the dwarves battling in ''Film/TheHobbit''.

** Roman Torchwick's design seems at least partially inspired by [[Film/AClockworkOrange Alex [=DeLarge=]]]. Particularly the hat, cane, and the heavy eyeliner.

** Pyrrha Nikos is inspired by the legend of Achilles, who once disguised himself as a woman called Pyrrha. Nikos comes from Nike the Greek Goddess of Victory, and when she unlocks Jaune's Aura, the words she speak come from Greek philosophy. When she confronts the giant Death Stalker, her lunging spear stabs are based on Achilles's signature move from ''Film/{{Troy}}.

* Volume 3, Chapter 6:
** [[https://youtu.be/moxtu3AuA4s?t=12m40s After the]] MatchCut from Amber's face to Cinder's, the camera pans away from Cinder (while keeping her at the focal point of the shot) as she's doing a KubrickStare directly at it in a way that almost resembles the opening shot of ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.

** Weiss [[spoiler:performs her first summon and creates a right arm and sword to attack for her.]] The appearance, [[spoiler:a partial summoned being connected to a magic summon circle]], is reminiscent of [[spoiler:Yuna]] in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''.

** Neptune King's appearance is inspired by T.O.P of Music/BigBang. His power recalls the trident of the God of the Sea, Neptune, but also Zhu Bajie; King Neptune was a famous pig, a WW2 Navy mascot that raised huge funds for the US Navy. The Monkey King's companion, Zhu Bajie, is an anthropomorphic pig whose power is affected by water.

** Yang and Ruby have a corgi named "Zwei" which is German for "Two". In ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', there is a corgi named Ein(s), which is German for "One". %%Explanation: "eins" is German for "one" (number) and "ein" is German for "a/an" (indefinite article). On the other hand, the corgi in Cowboy Bebop is most likely named after Albert Einstein. The characters call him just "Ein" most of the time, but "Eins" is also a valid shortening and thus the pun.
