* Volume 3, Chapter 11:
** the shot of Qrow leaping over Ironwood to slice a Griffon in half is reminiscent of the [[Film/Sharknado]] scene where Fin, wielding a chainsaw, jumps into the open mouth of a Great White Shark, complete with slow motion.

** Jaune Arc is inspired by [[JeanneDArchetype Jeanne D'Arc]], who did disguise herself as a man for a while. He is believed to have an instinct for leadership and tactics and comes from an unassuming background. The bullies that target him during the Jaundice arc are led by Cardin Winchester. Joan of Arc's interrogator was the Cardinal of Winchester, Henry Beaufort. In terms of [[ButtMonkey comedy]], he's a guy leading a team with a blue theme, with seven sisters, a bad lack of common knowledge, and no style beyond brute strength? He could be Caboose from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''.

** 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: She is eventually killed when she is shot in the heel, just as Achilles was. Again like the film, this cripples her, allowing her to be finished off by a arrow to the chest.]]
** 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. His dual guns greatly resemble Haseo's Xth Form DG-X weapons, from ''Franchise/DotHack''.

** 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.
** Its been stated that Sage is inspired by Aesop, though it wasn't specified whether it was one of his Fables or Aesop himself.

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



** In a nod to the different roles Professor Port's voice actor has played, Port refers to all creatures as prey... or Edgar.

** The arrival of Ruby's rocket-locker to deliver Crescent Rose is reminiscent of the delivery pods from ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity''.



** [[spoiler:The cape Glynda wears while trying to fix Vale has a [[Creator/RayNarvaezJr Brown Crown]] on it.]]
** Qrow refers to Ruby as a 'pipsqueak'. [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Another character]] portrayed by Qrow's voice actor Vic Mignogna used to get called that a lot...
** The way Ruby, Nora, Jaune and Ren take off walking together from Ruby's house is reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz, where the party of four is walking along the yellow brick road 'off to see the wizard.'
