** The image on Ruby's nightshirt looks a lot like Majora's Mask from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''.



** When Ruby is considering potential partners, the art style used recalls Rooster Teeth's Animated Adventures videos.
** Ruby's position while she's hugging Weiss in Episode 5 perfectly mimics that of the original "X. X everywhere." [[MemeticMutation meme]], and someone has [[http://cheezburger.com/7741063936 actually]] used it for that.

** Just after [[DropTheHammer launching]] Jaune and herself across a broken bridge, Nora declares "NORA SMASH!" during her next attack as per {{Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk}}.
** The gang fights a giant monster raven called a Nevermore, which is a shout out to Creator/EdgarAllanPoe.

** The White Trailer: Most of the fight between Weiss and the insanely massive Knight that takes up most of the trailer bears a lot of resemblance to several boss fights in the {{Dark Souls}} series, in particular the fight against Artorias the Abysswalker in the first game. In addition, the moment where Weiss creates several blue runes that then shoot towards the Knight as deadly projectiles also bring to mind one of the spells players can use in the games.



** Yang's full name is Yang Xiao Long, a reference to Creator/BruceLee, whose Chinese screen name was "Li Xiaolong". Her "casual" outfit in Volume 2 bears a striking resemblance to [[Videogame/{{MassEffect2}} Miranda Lawson's]] normal catsuit uniform, particularly in the coloration of the torso and sleeves and the lines of the shoulders. The one big difference is Yang's version has a skirt and CleavageWindow.

** 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}}''. [[spoiler: Also, like the film, she is crippled when shot through the heel and then finished off with an arrow to her chest.]]

** Sun Wukong is named after the Monkey King and wields a staff. Sun's semblance creates clones; the Monkey King was able to create clones out of his hair.

** Yang has an 'Achieve Men' Poster, which is a cartoon version of the Achievement Hunter Boy Band Poster. Doubles as a MythologyGag, as one of the early names for AH was Achieve Men.

** 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]].
