** The Team RWBY combo attacks were all basically some for of dual tech, a system used in VideoGame/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 Chrono Trigger. The combo attacks were also inspired by the dwarves battling in ''Film/TheHobbit''.

** Neptune Vasalias'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.

** Professor Ozpin and Glynda Goodwitch are very obvious and confirmed nods to ''Listerature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz''. In the same vein James Ironwood and Qrow Branwen are the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow respectively.

** It was certainly no accident that Oobleck said they had to detach the Caboose, which is a shout out to ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''.

to:

** The title of the episode is "No Brakes", in reference to the Achievement Hunter phrase "No brakes on the Fuck Train", used to denote a killstreak or other string of gaming successes.
** It was certainly no accident that Oobleck said they had to detach the Caboose, which is a shout out to ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. He even adds that "It will kill us all", in reference to Caboose's habit of [[EpicFail accidentally killing those on his own team]].

** And finally, Scarlet is stated to be based on PeterPan. Specifially, his name stems from the second novel in the series, called "Peter Pan In Scarlet".

** Ren is inspired by Hua Mulan who famously disguised herself as a man so that she could protect her father's honour when conscription demands men send their sons to war. And he (somewhat) also resembles Lelouch vi Britannia from ''Anime/CodeGeass''

* Volume 2, Chapter 2:
** Yang uses the ''Anime/YuGiOh'' memetic line "You just activated my trap card!".
*** Then she and Ruby say it like a scene EXACTLY from the anime when a luck based card is activated: The activator explaining what the good effect does and the opponent saying what the bad effect is, then the good effect happens.
** Not to mention the fact that she prefaces that reveal with "Pretty sneaky, sis!", from the old [[BoardGames Connect Four]] commercial.

She and Ruby discuss the trap card in a similar manner to when luck-based cards are activated in the anime: the activator explains what the good effect does, the opponent clarifies what the bad effect is, and the good effect then occurs.
