* MemeticMolester: Ren, [[TheStoic of all people]], became a very minor and mostly humorous example after accidentally looking up Nora's skirt in the Volume 4 finale, with pictures popping up where the angle of the shot made it seem like he was looking up Pyrrha's and Yang's skirts (during the qualifier in the Vytal tournament and during the food fight respectively).



* NightmareRetardant: After the release of the volume 4 finale, The FNDM was quick to point out that the Nuckelavee's [[RubberMan stretching arms]] combined with it's spastic movements make it look like a demonic inflatable air dancer. The comparison makes the monster go from disturbing to downright goofy for some.

** Jaune, he's joked a lot on how he's clueless about things and how incompetent he can be in battle. Admittedly some of this was [[IntendedAudienceReaction intentional]] since he's [[OvershadowedByAwesome a normal dude surrounded by insanely powerful huntsmen and huntresses]] but there are many fans who tend to only focus on his earlier bumbling attitude rather then [[TookALevelInBadass his increased fighting skills and leadership capabilities]] shown in later volumes. This has only gotten worse after "Heroes and Monsters" aired wherein [[spoiler:Jaune (unintentionally) got Amber (and because of what happened after that, Pyrrha) killed when he was distracted by Pyrrha's screams during the power transfer]] which ended up given birth to a couple of memes. Hell even the creators have started making fun of Jaune's perceived uselessness.

** Very little has been revealed about Neo, except that she never talks, seems to primarily (but not exclusively) act as Roman's support, and her appearance and name were inspired by both cross-gendered cosplay costumes for Roman and Neapolitan ice-cream. The fandom generally assumes she is a mute, that her favourite food is ice-cream, and that she and Roman have an important relationship (which ranges from father/daughter to siblings to lovers and everything in-between).

** In canon, Blake and Sun are attracted to each other, however the fandom prefers Blake with Yang and has given the ship a nickname ("Bumblebee"). This again originates from the prequel trailers, with the canon show giving the girls different personalities to what was initially assumed. Blake and Yang don't meet until half way through the first volume, and the fans delight in every emotional scene between them. Bumblebee is the most popular ship pairing in the entire show.

** Before the series came out, Ruby and Weiss were shipped together constantly. This was most likely caused by the Website/DeviantArt author [[http://lunarisfuryaileron.deviantart.com/ LunarisFuryAileron]], whose ''RWBY'' [[YonKoma 4komas]] were featured on Monty's Twitter a few times. This continued on even after Ruby and Weiss were revealed to have very different characterizations than what the fandom assumed.
** Blake and Yang shared almost no interaction before they became teammates halfway through Volume 1, but that hasn't stopped the so-called Bumblebee pairing from being one of the largest pairings in the show. Fans were delighted when the show gave them a little heart-to-heart talk in Volume 2 and a more tragic incident at the end of Volume 3.
** Sun Wukong gets shipped with his CasanovaWannabe team mate Neptune, which initially began based on Neptune's appearance alone. This later gained popularity as a result of his {{adorkable}} personality, their paired dynamic, and a desire to solve the perceived threat to both the Bumblebee and White Rose ships which arises from the ShipTease between Sun and Blake and Neptune and Weiss.
** [[BombThrowingAnarchist Roman Torchwick]] and [[CuteAndPsycho Neopolitan]] are shipped very often by the fans because of the fact they are predominately seen in each other's company and are both extremely psychotic. Roman's alarmed reaction upon witnessing Neo being blown off the airship didn't hurt, although the fact Roman is dead has hurt it somewhat.
** Qrow and Winter is the most popular ship involving adults, mainly for two reasons: the BelligerentSexualTension involved and the hilarious parallel to the Ruby/Weiss ship.

* ItWasHisSled: At the end of Volume 3, the climactic battle leads to two major consequences that caused the fandom a great deal of shock at the time. However, the fan reaction was so widespread across Social Media, that the events became well-known even to people who have never followed the show. This has been compounded by Volume 4 promotional art of characters incorporating those twists into character design, thereby making them highly visible and very hard to hide from new fans of the show who are starting from the beginning. [[spoiler:In the Volume 3 finale, Pyrrha is killed and Yang uses her arm. Promotional artwork for Volume 4, shows Jaune wearing a variation of Pyrrha's waist sash in memory of her and shows Yang in new clothing with her missing arm clearly visible.]]

** A lot of the dialogue from Volume 1 was quite corny:
-->'''Yang''': "C'mon Ruby! You'll be the bee's knees!"
