** Every other main character's weapon has been named [[AllInTheManual elsewhere,]] but Ruby is the only one who treats her weapon with quite that level of affection.

** Ruby is on the receiving end of one when she goes up against Neo and Roman by herself. Despite getting Neo swept off the airship, a BadassBoast AND a ThemeMusicPowerUp, Roman continues to handily curb-stomp her alone.

* FieldPromotion: In a manner of speaking [[spoiler: Once Beacon falls and Ozpin disappears, Qrow sends Ruby Jaune Ren and Nora off into the field to fight Cinder, even though they've not even completed one of the 4 years of training, rather than reassigning them to another academy, essentially throwing them straight into the professional hunter world.]]

** Although as one of the commentary's mentions Ruby worries less and less about being normal as the volumes go on in favor of going beyond what's expected of her to take the fight to the villains, to the point that she basically forgets all about wanting to be normal in Vol 3 [[spoiler:so that by the time she learns she has actual special powers with her silver eyes, and thus never WAS normal at all, she instantly embraces them and wants to put them to use fighting Cinder.]]

* ColorCodedCharacters:
** The four main characters have theme colors, which lead to the acronym title. "Ruby" the character has a red theme; as her name means "white snow" in German, it should come as no surprise that "Weiss" has a white theme; "Blake" has a black theme, and "Yang" is named after what basically amounts to the golden sun.
** And then there's the second set of characters, colored yellow, pink, red and green/pink.
** This is actually a plot point - in defiance of fascist governments 80 years before the story starts, it became a tradition for some families to name their children after various colors to represent their artistic freedom and individualism.
** Then there's the pins, which include a couple of pink emblems.

ColorCodedCharacters: Eighty years before the story starts, it became begins, a tradition for some families global war ends which was fought over, among other things, the right to name artistic self-expression. In memory of this, people ever since have named themselves and their children after various colors to represent colours, a core concept of art. As a result, every character is associated with a colour that is built into their artistic freedom name either directly, or by association. The exception is Ozpin who, while associated with the colour green, does not have a name that is based on, or associated in-universe, with that, or any other, colour.

* ColourfulThemeNaming: ''Field Trip'' reveals that 80 years before the series begins, there was a great war where even artistic self-expression was at stake. In memory and defiance of this, people have ever since named their children after colours, a core concept of art. All characters in the show are colour-themed, as are their team names. The [[https://twitter.com/montyoum/status/406894139746172928/photo/1/large sole exception]], for unrevealed reasons, is Professor [[OddNameOut Ozpin]]. Examples include Ruby being red-themed, Weiss being white-themed, Blake being black-themed (her name is an Old English word for a dark-haired person), and Yang being named after a Chinese word for light and the sun.

** In a sense however, Ozpin ''still'' follows the rule, just not in an obvious way. Ozpin was revealed to be named after [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, more commonly abbreviated to O.Z.P.I.N.H.E.A.D]]. What color is Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz ''heavily'' associated with [[EmeraldPower again]]?

* EstablishingCharacterMusic: The trailers which introduced each member of Team RWBY made excellent use of music to help establish their characters.
** Ruby's song "Red Like Roses" sounds like it's played by a mariachi band, portraying Ruby as a fun-loving character, but the triumphant orchestral music underneath it demonstrates her heroic nature.
** Weiss's song "Mirror, Mirror" is a haunting orchestral piece, accompanied by Weiss' singing. This shows her inner struggle, as she tries to figure out who she is meant to be in life.
** Blake's song "From Shadows" alternates between a somber piano piece and heavy electronic music, showing her double nature and her melancholy outlook on life.
** Yang's song "I Burn" starts as a dance remix of the other girls' songs, before transitioning to a pounding synth beat. This demonstrates her devotion to her teammates and her BloodKnight tendencies.
