* Trailers
** The Red Trailer: The cliff side altar Ruby visits is engraved with the epitaph "Summer Rose / Thus kindly I scatter." This is from [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Rose_of_Summer The Last Rose of Summer]] by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Moore Thomas Moore]].
** The Black Trailer: Adam's weapon and combat style are [[https://twitter.com/montyoum/status/315342093893648385 based off]] Kagura Tsuchimiya from ''Anime/GaReiZero''.
** The Yellow Trailer:
*** Yang basically goes [[Manga/DragonBall Super Saiyan]]-esque when she gets serious. "I Burn Remix" has her saying "and Super Saiyan now" in terms of her strength. The soundtrack also makes direct references to [[Comicbook/FantasticFour The Human Torch]] and [[{{Comicbook/Ghostrider}} Johnny Blaze aka Ghostrider]].
*** Melanie uses [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Ling Xiaoyu's]] kicks which also used by Tifa in Dead Fantasy, this because [[WordOfGod Monty said]] he reused some moves he did previously in Dead Fantasy, but with different angle of camera to make them look new or different. She also uses the Flamingo stance parry and kicks used by Sarah Bryant in ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter 5.'' Right after that Yang uses one of Lion's throws from ''5'' against her.
*** Yang picks a fight with a slightly {{Yakuza}}-[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Axe_Gang esque gang]] [[AnAxeToGrind wielding axes.]] In addition, the way they go flying when she engages them resembles [[Film/KungFuHustle another Axe Gang]]. There are numerous shout outs to the House of Blue Leaves battle from ''Film/KillBill''. (Which was also a reference to The Axe Gang.)


* Team RWBY's themes are mostly FairytaleMotif references, but Shout Out references also exist.
** Ruby Rose's inspiration was Little Red Riding Hood, from her appearance to her name. This comes to a tee in WebAnimation/RWBYChibi, where the team perform a play based off of the fairytale.
** Weiss Schnee's inspiration comes from Snow White. Her ImageSong, Mirror Mirror, is based off of the iconic "mirror mirror on the wall" speech from the titular fairy tale.
*** At one point, Weiss casts Haste from ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' on Blake and later herself, using the same visual effect (a clock appearing under her feet with rapidly spinning hands) from Monty's old work, ''WebAnimation/DeadFantasy''.
** Blake Belladonna's inspiration comes from Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
*** Her "Intruder" costume is based on one the outfits worn by Yuri of Music/GirlsGeneration in the music video for "The Boys".
** Yang Xiao Long is based off of Goldilocks from Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Her full name is a reference to Creator/BruceLee, whose Chinese screen name was "Li Xiaolong".
** Yang and Ruby have a corgi named "Zwei" which is German for "Two". In ''Anime/CowboyBebop'', there is a corgi named Ein(s), which is German for "One".
* Team JNPR's theme is confirmed to be based on famous historical or mythical people who disguised themselves as a member of the opposite gender.
** 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.
** Nora Valkyrie is inspired by the legend of Thor, who once disguised himself as a woman in order to get close enough to the man who stole his famous weapon.
** 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}}''.
** 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.
* Team CRDL's motif is birds.
** Cardin Winchester is based off of the cardinal. However, he has an additional inspiration in Henry Beaufort. Beaufort was a cardinal of Winchester, who oversaw the trial of Joan of Arc. In RWBY, Cardin Winchester loves to torment Jaune Arc.
** CRDL's other teammates, Russel Thrush, Dove Bronzewing and Sky Lark, are based off of the thrush, dove, and lark, respectively.
* Team CFVY's main theme is EdibleThemeNaming, but they have additional shout-outs.
** Coco Adel's main inspiration is cocoa. Additionally, being the fashionista with bob and a gun disguised as a handbag, she may also be a reference to the fashion designer UsefulNotes/CocoChanel.
** Velvet Scarlatina's basis is red velvet cake. Being a girl with rabbit ears, she's also a reference to the children's storybook ''Literature/TheVelveteenRabbit''. Her last name further lends weight to the association as the child who owns the rabbit contracts scarlet fever.
** Yatsuhashi Daichi are inspired by the Japanese confectionary yatsuhashi.
* Team SSSN is inspired in design by both ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' and K-Pop bands.
** Sun Wukong is named after the Monkey King and wields a staff. Sun's semblance creates clones that are the same colour as his hair; the Monkey King was able to create clones out of his hair.
** 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.
** The writers have stated in livestream interviews that Sage is inspired by Aesop, though they claim that they cannot remember whether it was one of his Fables or Aesop himself.
** Scarlet is stated to be based on Literature/PeterPan. Specifically, his name stems from the second novel in the series, called "Peter Pan In Scarlet".
* Ozpin's circle are all based off of characters from Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz.
** Ozpin is based off of Oz himself. The acronym for Oz's full name, OZPINHEAD, was the inspiration of Ozpin's name and his positin as Headmaster. His reincarnation, Oscar Pine, comes from not only Ozpin's name, but also from Oscar, the Wizard of Oz's first name. Ozpin also has a secondary association with the Norse God, Odin, being possessed of great wisdom and magical power, and having two corvids who gather information for him from around the world just as the ravens, Huginn and Muninn do for Odin. Also, like Odin, he is capable of travelling around the world in various disguise, due to his resurrection curse, which transports his memories, Soul and Aura into new bodies, therefore changing his identity each time.
** Glynda Goodwitch is based off of Glynda the Good Witch. Her Semblance ability allows her to perform feats that look like magic and she constantly monitors students through technological means, similar to Glinda the Good Witch's ability to monitor the events of Oz via a magical book. She wears a lot of white, in keeping with the Oz rule that only witches are allowed to wear white. Instead of a wand, she uses a leather riding crop, and her symbol is a tiara, in keeping with Glinda being the ruler of Quadling Country.
** James Ironwood is based off the Tin Woodsman. He has lost half his body and therefore functions by means of cybernetic replacements. His surname Ironwood is a translation of the Russian version of the Tin Man. Also, the Tin Woodsman eventually becomes the General of the army of Oz, and is given a kingdom to rule in his own right. Ironwood is both the headmaster of the Huntsman Academy and the General of the Atlesian army. This gives him two seats on the Atlesian ruling council and, as Volume 4 proves, the ability to wield inordinate power over the Council to do thinks such as close the Atlesian borders and enforce Dust embargoes around the world. Qrow once even complains to Ozpin that he isn't sure Ironwood has a heart, a reference to the Tin Woodsman's desire to be given a heart. In the revisionist ''Musical/{{Wicked}}'', the Tin Woodsman has an unrequited crush on Glinda the Goodwitch, and Ironwood spends Volume 2 attempting to woo a rather impatient, but not entirely unreceptive, Glynda Goodwitch.
** Qrow Branwen is based off of the Scarecrow, acting as the rational thinker of Ozpin's subordinates. He is also based on Muninn, one of Odin's two ravens in Norse mythology. His twin sister Raven is based on Huginn. Salem refers to them as 'eyes'; when Tyrian reports that he's poisoned Qrow, Salem mentions 'the second eye is blinded', a reference to Raven (the other eye) having abandoned Ozpin years ago. Ozpin later confirms that he gave the twins the power to shapeshift into birds so that they can gather information from around the world on Salem's activities and the locations of new Maidens.
** Leonardo Lionheart is based off of the Cowardly Lion. He's a lion Faunus, his first name refers to lions, his second name refers to the courage of lions, and he's constantly terrified of the threat the villains pose to Mistral, the world and particularly himself. Salem outright refers to him as a coward, although Ozpin seems a little surprised by the extent of Leo's craven behaviour, implying something recent happened to him to make him so terrified of Salem.
* Some of the villains are are also based on fairy tales:
** Cinder Fall is based off of Cinderella. Her emblem is based off of Cinderella's iconic glass slippers. In addition, [[Recap/RWBYV2E7DanceDanceInfiltration Dance Dance Infiltration]] has her returning to the Beacon Academy Dance at the stroke of midnight, shedding the clothing she wore to infiltrate the CCT; instead of a slipper, she leaves behind the mask she wore.
** Roman Torchwick's design and his surname come from Lampwick from ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}''. His clothes and signature color also seem to a be a reference to Alex from ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.
** Mercury Black's inspiration is Mercury of Roman mythology, as is his personal winged helmet motif. His weapons residing in his feet act as a reference to Mercury's reputation for being fleet of foot and wearing winged sandals. Additionally, Mercury's father, Marcus, is a shout-out to fellow Roman god Mars, and, in keeping with Mercury's connection to trade and commerce, Mercury won't work for Cinder until he's assured there's something he can get out of it.
** Neopolitan is the only case of a character not being based off of a specific figure from fairy tales, myths or history. Instead, she's based off of neopolitan ice cream, as indicated by her hair.
** Adam Taurus is the Beast to Blake's Belle. His emblem is based off of the iconic rose from Beauty and the Beast, and he shares his name with the Beast's true form in the Disney adaptation.
** Hazel Rainart's inspiration was Hansel from Hansel and Gretel. He and his deceased sister, Gretchen, have similar sounding names with the fairy-tale characters -- in fact, both ''Gretel'' and ''Gretchen'' are diminutive forms of the '''same''' name in the '''same''' language (specifically, the German name ''Margarete'').
** As Ozpin's ArchEnemy, Salem fills the roll of the Wicked Witch of the West. Her relationship to Cinder, granting desire (in this case power), also makes her Cinder's Fairy Godmother.
* Inspired by ''Literature/{{Pinocchio}}'', Penny is an artificial girl who wishes to understand and socialise with real people. Like Pinocchio, she has a tendency to sneak off without permission and get into trouble as a result of the adventures she gets swept up in. Her surname "Polendina" is a yellow mushy food that was the insult used to describe Geppetto's hair. However, her descriptions of herself and what she's designed to do come from ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona'' and ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''; she explains that she's the first synthetic person capable of generating an aura, and that, while she's been created to save the world, she still has a lot to learn. Penny's teammate in the Vytal Festival Tournament, Ciel Soleil, is a reference to the Blue Fairy.
* Peter Port is based off of Peter from Peter and the Wolf. Aside from a wise grandfather he claims to have, Peter claimed to have captured a Beowolf, being hailed a hero in his village in doing so.
* Dr. Bartholomew Oobleck is named after Creator/DrSeuss' children's novel ''Bartholomew and the Oobleck''. His hair is green, which also reflects the Oobleck.
* Junior Xiong, owner of the club Yang visits in the Yellow short and Volume 2, is based off of Baby Bear from Goldilocks and the Three Bears, in keeping with Yang's inspiration, which is Goldilocks.
* Brawnz Ni, leader of Team BRNZ, pays homage to [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents Fairly Oddparents]] villain Bronze Kneecap, what with his bronze kneecaps.
* Flynt Coal's inspiration actually originated from Rooster Teeth itself. Specifically, he's based off of Flint Coal, a character birthed from [[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterMinecraftSeries Achievement Hunter's Minecraft LPs]]. A character of the [[NamesTheSame same name]] appeared in [[WebAnimation/XRayAndVav another Rooster Teeth production]]. His team's connection to memes and trolling suggests he's also based on the Skeleton Trumpet meme.
* Neon Katt is based on the Nyan Cat [[MemeticMutation meme]]. She creates a rainbow trail behind her, has cat traits, uses ice (referencing the cat's icing), and has a hyperactive personality.
* The name of the current head of the Schnee Dust Company, Jacques Schnee, is derived from Jack Frost. Its founder, Nicholas Schnee, is derived from Saint Nicholas, better known as Santa Claus. Frank Baum wrote stories set in a land considered a neighbour to his more famous [[Literature/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz Land of Oz]] stories, which are a significant influence on this show, where Jack Frost was always trying to undermine Father Christmas.
* Keeping up with Weiss' Snow White inspiration, her butler, Klein Sieben, is based off of the seven dwarfs. His eyes change color occasionally, in order to fit with his current mood--each mood and color based off of a dwarf.
* Ghira Belladonna, Blake's father and previous leader of the White Fang, seems to be based off of Bagheera from the Jungle Book. His successor, Sienna Khan, appears to based off of Shere Khan from the same story.

[[folder:Volume 1]]
* Volume 1, Episode 1:
** The store that Torchwick and his goons attempt to rob is named [[Film/FromDuskTillDawn "From Dust Till Dawn"]].
** Ruby's line, "Oh, that's my uncle!", is a shout out to the Rooster Teeth podcast, where Burnie once [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoCvqDd2_C8 used that line]] to summarize his problems with Japanese-style storytelling.
* Volume 1, Episode 3:
** Blake describes a book she is reading as the story of a man with two souls. [[http://home.gamer.com.tw/creationDetail.php?sn=2116015 Transcriptions]] of the scene confirm the story to be ''Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDrJekyllAndMrHyde''.
* Volume 1, Episode 4:
** Yang's sunglasses in episode 4 are a homage to ''Film/TopGun''.
* Volume 1, Episode 5:
** When Ruby is considering potential partners, the art style of her thought bubble uses Rooster Teeth's Animated Adventures style.
* Volume 1, Episode 8:
** 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 named after the Creator/EdgarAllanPoe poem "The Raven".
** Team RWBY defeated the Giant Nevermore by using an UpToEleven version of the [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker Ultimate Combining Weapon]]: [[LethalJokeWeapon Human Slingshot]]. To achieve it, Weiss' Semblance is utilized as both an [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Air Hike]] and a [[Manga/SoulEater Vector Arrow]].
* Volume 1, Episode 9:
** Yang has an 'Achieve Men' Poster, which is a cartoon version of the Creator/AchievementHunter Boy Band Poster.
** Ruby, Yang, and Blake's cheer of 'Banzai!' and a lean to one side in the room-reorganizing sequence is a reference to Fuu, Mugen and Jin using the same phrase and lean in ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''
** During the Grim lecture, a boy shouts 'EEEEEEEEYYYYYYY YEAHHHH!' (Voiced by Kerry, no less) after a catch phrase shared by the members of the Internet Box.
** A music piece during Professor Port's lecture is a reference to the opera, ''Peter and the Wolf''.
** In a nod to the different roles Professor Port's voice actor has played, Port refers to all creatures as prey.
* Volume 1, Episode 16:
** Penny's fighting style is pulled straight from VideoGame/BlazBlue.


[[folder:Volume 2]]
* Volume 2, Chapter 1:
** During her speech, Ruby quotes [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln Abraham Lincoln's]] "4 Score and Seven Years" and UsefulNotes/MartinLutherKingJr's "I Have a Dream". When Weiss accuses her of stealing her binder, she uses [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon Richard Nixon's]] "I'm not a crook" [[MemeticHandGesture peace sign]].
** Tukson can be heard humming the opening notes of Blood Gulch Blues from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', and Mercury and Emerald try to figure out what kind of Faunus Tukson was. They conclude "A puma?" in another ''Red vs. Blue'' reference.
** Mercury walking out of Tukson's shop with an WebAnimation/XRayAndVav comic. Jaune also reads the same comic in episode 2.
** [[http://store.roosterteeth.com/collections/t-shirts/products/peoplelikegrapesshirt People Like Grapes]] Soda machines appear during the food fight.
** Other food products include "Dr. Piper" (likely a reference to Dr. Pepper), "Ol' King Cold" (a reference to Old King Cole), and a milk carton called "Udder Satisfaction".
** Nora calling "Off with their heads!" as per ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'', after shouting "I'm queen of the castle!" moments before.
* Volume 2, Chapter 2: Yang uses the ''Anime/YuGiOh'' memetic line "You just activated my trap card!" after prefacing the reveal with "Pretty sneaky, sis!" as per the old [[BoardGames Connect Four]] commercial. She and Ruby discuss the trap card in a similar manner to when luck-based cards are activated in the anime: the activator explains what the good effect does, the opponent clarifies what the bad effect is, and the good effect then occurs.
* Volume 2, Chapter 3: Jaune asks Weiss if she would like to see a new Spruce Willis movie with him. This is a reference to the real-world Bruce Willis, who is known for his several action-genre movies, modified to fit the show's color theme naming (spruce is a shade of green).
* Volume 2, Chapter 4:
** Ruby calls out attack patterns by using various internet {{shipping}} names like "Freezer Burn" (Weiss/Yang), "Ladybug" (Ruby/Blake) and "Bumblebee" (Blake/Yang) to denote which pair to attack. Curiously, instead of their more common shipping names "White Rose" and "Monochrome", Ruby/Weiss became "Ice Flower" and Weiss/Blake became "Checkmate" respectively. At least with the latter's change, it ties into the ChessMotifs found in the series.
** The Team RWBY combo attacks were all basically some form 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''.
** While team RWBY is fighting Roman, Neptune and Sun are at ''A Simple Wok'', a noodle shop named after Kerry and Chris' ''A Simple Walk into Mordor''.
** The Atlesian Paladin's feet, particularly the spikes that jam into the ground for stability, are clearly based on Metal Gear REX's from the ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' series.
* Volume 2, Chapter 6: Ren [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/b9c10af4c8aa5bffd63829fb0b611563/tumblr_nbeicq0kxu1qzm9p9o2_1280.png uses]] Samurai Shampoo, which is a play on the show ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo''.
* Volume 2, Chapter 7:
** The episode title "Dance Dance Infiltration" is a play-on-words of ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', a favorite activity of Monty's.
** ''Music/DaftPunk'' can be seen in the background, [[http://i.imgur.com/fhKpNzJ.jpg playing at the dance]].
* Volume 2, Chapter 11:
** 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]].
* Volume 2, Chapter 12:
** Ruby attacks the pack of Beowolves in "Breach" the exact same way Neo attacked the Agent Smith clones in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''.
** One of the lyrics in the song played when Team CFVY shows up in "Breach" is "I'm the highway star" from Music/DeepPurple.


[[folder:Volume 3]]
* Volume 3, Chapter 1:
** The way Blake takes out Reese (by using her semblance as bait and attacking from behind) is a one-person variant of the Bum Bait videos by Creator/AchievementHunter, where one teammate acts as melee bait to set up easy kills for a partner.
* Volume 3, Chapter 2:
** During SSSN's fight with NDGO, Dew sweeps up some tornadoes that knock Sage out of the battle in short order. When she tries to do the same to Scarlet, he ends up stabilising himself and landing safely on a galleon. The way he does so looks very similar to ''Literature/PeterPan'' [[http://worldartsme.com/images/peter-pan-flying-clipart-1.jpg when he is in flight]] because Scarlet is a reference to ''Peter Pan in Scarlet''.
* Volume 3, Chapter 4:
** The video game Qrow and Ruby are playing is a reference to ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'', with its {{palette swap}}ped {{ninja}} characters and Fatality-esque {{finishing move}}s.
* Volume 3, Chapter 5:
** While Cinder is looking at Penny's schematics, you can see her model number as M374. The Meta from ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' wore a M-374 Hephaestus Combat Suit.
* Volume 3, Chapter 7:
** Cinder's "Follow me, and you'll never go hungry again" is a reference to [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar's]] line.
* Volume 3, Chapter 12:
** 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'.


[[folder:Volume 4]]
* Volume 4, Chapter 1:
** The barrel that the farm boy is turning has the [[WebAnimation/RWBYChibi Compost King]] logo on it.
* Volume 4, Chapter 2:
** Jaune says he'd like to have a warrior's wolf tail, like [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Sokka's]].
** The scene where Jaune watches a recording of Pyrrha over and over again while training is a reference to the finale of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' Season 10.
* Li Ren's character design was, per Kerry, explicitly based off Hanzo from ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}''.

* The White Fang are an organisation of militant [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]] who used to peacefully protest over faunus inequality. There's a constant theme in the show that humans and faunus need to find equality and learn how to live together, a situation made more difficult by the White Fang's recent descent into terrorism. ''Literature/WhiteFang'' is a novel by Creator/JackLondon which focusses on a wild-born wolf-dog that slowly learns how to live with humans.
* Monty Oum referenced ''Manga/SoulEater'' when describing how he envisioned his characters; the arrow-like patterns of Glynda Goodwitch's ragged cape are a shout out to Medusa. There's also a {{mook}} in episode 8 that looks like an Arachnophobia member. Weiss starts using her glyphs to dash out of danger, similar to Medusa's Vector Plates.
* There are several Slow Mo Guys references throughout the show. Whenever Jaune goes into slow motion, the sound the Slow Mo Guys use plays. The dumpster Penny dumps Ruby in has the initials for the Slow Mo Guys, Gus' RTAA face, and Captain Dynamic's symbol.
* There's a ''Franchise/RoboCop'' theme to the Atlesian military technology. In a scene reminiscent of the final battle in ''Film/RoboCop2'', Yang jumps on the back of the Atlesian Paladin and fires off multiple rounds to the head. When Cinder breaks into the CCT, the guards she takes are out dressed in armoured uniforms that are identical to Murphy's. The way Ironwood takes down a group of Atlesian soldiers is also very similar to [=RoboCop=].
* The show's page on the Rooster Teeth website has a group shot of Team RWBY, with Weiss and Yang wearing t-shirts based off of the classic Creator/{{Disney}} logo and the ''Film/JurassicPark'' logo, respectively.
* The lyrics for "I May Fall" are inspired by Aragorn's speech in ''TheReturnOfTheKing''.
