** The [[ArtShift art shifts]], especially the TelltaleGames-esque cel-shading in "Club". Some say it's AwesomeArt, while others say it's too far from the series' ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' [[{{Machinima}} machinima]] roots. "Club"'s non-futuristic firearms and [[spoiler:Locus and Felix in [[BadassInANiceSuit sharp suits]] rather than PoweredArmor]] are particularly jarring. Though this seems to have died down some now that the three episodes have aired and turned out to have an amazing story. Many fans are even calling for a spinoff now.

* AwesomeMusic: The MusicalEpisode had some great songs, though sadly there were two, technically three. The later rap battle soothed the itch for more great music.

* BaseBreakingChracter: Agent Carolina. One sides sympathizes with her, pointing how she was the victim of the Director's manipulations as well as betrayal by her teammates. They also appreciate her relationship with York and [[spoiler: were saddened that they were never able to get together]]. The other side hates her for being a {{Jerkass}} in [[spoiler:the present day to the Reds and Blues]] as well as blaming her for everything that went wrong with Project Freelancer, even if it wasn't her fault.

* PostScriptSeason: Arguably, the last season ended in a BolivianArmyEnding that doesn't really need a continuation is more episodic and really experimental, [[ArtShift art shifts constantly]] and most importantly Monty Oum's not there to direct the action scenes anymore a thing the series has been heavily basing itself on since season 8.

** When the series should have ended. Some say season 5 since it gives a sincerely sad ending to an hilarious series about [[BookEnd how pointless everything was.]] Season 10 with the lore and formula having been deconstructed and reconstructed, backstory having been explained and characters having been tested to its limits. Season 13 with the chorus arc giving fresh air to the franchise and proving it can work in an overall new setting. [[BrokenBase And then there's]] [[PostScriptSeason season 14]]

!!Series-Wide

* PeripheryDemographic: A lot of RWBY fans, especially the YouTube reaction/reviewer community have discovered RvB on the off-season when they needed content to react to/review.

----
[[index]]
* ''YMMV/RedVsBlueTheBloodGulchChronicles'': Seasons 1-5 plus "Out of Mind"
* ''YMMV/RedVsBlueTheRecollection'': Seasons 6-8 plus "Recovery One" and "Relocated"
* ''YMMV/RedVsBlueTheProjectFreelancerSaga'': Seasons 9-10
* ''YMMV/RedVsBlueTheChorusTrilogy'': Seasons 11-13
[[/index]]

!!Season 14
* AwesomeMusic: The MusicalEpisode had some great songs, though sadly there were two, technically three. The later rap battle soothed the itch for more great music.
* BrokenBase:
** The season as a whole. Is it clever WorldBuilding that fleshes out [[ArcWords why they're here]], or a pointless FillerArc that detracts from the dramatic BolivianArmyEnding of Season 13? [[BuiltWithLego "The Brick Gulch Chronicles"]] and [[RealTrailerFakeMovie "The #1 Movie in the Galaxy: 3"]] are particularly divisive, as they are funny as hell but have no connection to the series' events.
** The [[ArtShift art shifts]], especially the TelltaleGames-esque cel-shading in "Club". Some say it's AwesomeArt, while others say it's too far from the series' ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' [[{{Machinima}} machinima]] roots. "Club"'s non-futuristic firearms and [[spoiler:Locus and Felix in [[BadassInANiceSuit sharp suits]] rather than PoweredArmor]] are particularly jarring. Though this seems to have died down some now that the three episodes have aired and turned out to have an amazing story. Many fans are even calling for a spinoff now.
** The crossover with ''WebVideo/DeathBattle'', mostly between the fans of ''[=RvB=]'' and ''DB''. The ''[=RvB=]'' fans are quite happy to see a match up that had been denied previously and seeing a battle being done on ''Death Battle'' while the ''DB'' fans are quite upset over the outcome and the fact that it's ''another'' Rooster Teeth-related episode after the divisive match up between [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Yang Xiao Long]] and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Tifa Lockheart]]. This died down a good deal after many episodes of the third season have drawn controversial outcomes. In hindsight, Carolina vs the Meta was seen to be more evenly split between advantages, even by those that watched without prier knowledge of RVB.
* ContinuityLockout: In the first three episodes alone, a wealth of references have been provided that tie many small details from the earliest seasons together that would make all but the hardcore fan confused.
* {{Fanon}}: It's easier to count how many people will question [[spoiler: how Sarge is Boomstick's father than not.]]
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: As of episode 4 "Why They're Here", [[spoiler:the scene when Alpha Church recounts Tex's attack on Sidewinder]] comes off as horrifying, if not for the reasons you'd think.
-->'''Tucker''': Wait a second.. how do you beat someone to death with their own skull? That doesn't seem physically possible.
-->'''Church''': [[EmptyShell That's exactly what Jimmy kept screaming]].
** This also applies to Caboose's ImageSong as of episode 15, where we get a taste of the impact of [[spoiler: Church's demise.]]
* HilariousInHindsight: The episode ''Fight the Good Fight'' makes the scene in ''Reconstruction'' where Sarge can't comprehend that Grif is a Sergeant even funnier, knowing that they've tried and failed to get that through his head before.
* HolyShitQuotient: Despite not impacting the overall story or plot of the series, [[spoiler: the ''Merc Trilogy'' reveals that Locus and Felix's biological names are Samuel Ortez and Isaac Gates]], and we see their faces. It's pretty huge, considering very few outside of the Reds and Blues have been fully named, and only the faces of selective Freelancers have been seen.
* MemeticMutation:
** Codenames.
** Santos' obsession with wine bars keeps popping up in the Youtube comments.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The background music in "Club" sounds a bit like "Lone Digger" by Caravan Palace.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Episode 16 is a look at what Omega saw when he entered the minds of the Reds and Blues back in Episode 100 of the Blood Gulch Chronicles. And what happens when he gets to Church, who is in fact the Alpha aka whose rage Omega is the embodiment of? He simply finds the setting of Sidewinder familiar and merely gloats that he finally has a body to control. Sure, the implications were there, but it would've been far more interesting to see Omega's reaction to realizing that he was almost rejoined with his "father".
