* MagnificentBastard: [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doctor Arthur Watts]] is a [[DeadpanSnarker wicked snarker]] and the EvilGenius of [[Characters/RWBYSalemsFaction Salem's inner circle]]. After Cinder Fall ruined the attack on Haven by ignoring his warnings, Watts was sent to his home kingdom Atlas to set up Salem's arrival. Manipulating Jacques Schnee into giving him access to Atlas network so he could cause Jacques to win the election for Councilman, claiming he wanted revenge against General Ironwood for disgracing him, the true purpose of this, however, was so he could use the network to turn off the heaters in Mantle as well as use his hacking to [[FrameUp frame]] Mantle's protector Penny Polendina for a massacre he orchestrated and further its distress to summon the Grimm. After being lured into Amity Tower as a trap, Watts activated the Arena not willing to go down without a fight.


* DarthWiki/MostAnnoyingSound: Ruby's voice post-Volume 3 gets a '''lot''' of mockery due to her actress ramping up how squeaky it is and how it impacts some of her line reads. In the ''Cross Tag Battle'' community, it's common to joke that Ruby's English voice is tournament-banned, and a lot of players use the dual-vocal option to switch Ruby to her Japanese actress instead.

** Ruby's handling garnered a lot of complaints over Volumes 4 and 5 due to not being active, having less relevance compared with other characters in spite of being the protagonist and not asking about her silver eyes. In Volume 6, the writers specifically said that Ruby was on their list of things to improve with this volume, and Ruby has been the primary focus for the volume, assuming a leadership position and central role in the story and finally solving the silver eyes issue.

However, while she manages to get prominent focus, it also came at the cost of bringing the fact that she's a VanillaProtagonist to the forefront, {{narm}}y speeches and all.



** Ren, for all the reasons Weiss is listed as one but with an even less impressive fight record and jokes that he peaked in Volume 1 against the King Taijitu. Add in his lack of substantial screentime and how he gets humiliated in most battles due to being KO'd first (alongside Stormflower being one of the most-mocked weapons in the show), and Ren is usually mocked as JNPR's resident jobber.


* BaseBreakingCharacter:
** Jaune in the early seasons of the show due to fans assuming he was a self-insert for Miles Luna. Even after the show toned back on his screentime and relevance to the plot, some are still bitter over his hogging the limelight in Volume 1 and feel that his character arc in the Mistral seasons was just used as a cheap way to milk Pyrrha's death for emotional reactions from the fandom. That said as the years have gone on, Jaune has earned a loyal contingent of fans who like him specifically for being a deconstruction of the typical self-insert shonen protagonist, and enjoy his dynamic with Ruby, Ren and Nora.
** Ruby. Especially pre-Volume 6, fans were divided on if Ruby was an interesting paragon who bottled up her emotions, or if she was just a weak link of the cast and barely gets to be the actual protagonist of the show indirectly named after her. That Ruby was tied to the season-long drought in information on the Silver Eyes didn't help.
** Cinder. Either she's an interesting villain who has a lot of under-stated backstory hidden in her dialogue, or she's a bland, forgettable character who gets overshadowed by her own supporting cast (Mercury, Emerald and Neo) and is irritating in how under-developed she is alongside how the show tries to hype her threat-factor up while she keeps losing.


** [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Doctor Arthur Watts]] is the highest ranked member of [[Characters/RWBYSalemsFaction Salem's inner circle]], assisting Cinder in her actions in Vale to throw the city into chaos and facilitate a Grimm invasion. Returning to Atlas and Mantle, Watts [[ManipulativeBastard schemes]] to have the vicious [[AxCrazy Tyrian Callows]] murder the supporters of Robyn Hill and [[FrameUp frame]] Penny Polendina for the killings, shutting down Mantle's heating grid to allow countless citizens to freeze to death to rely on chaos and negative emotions to bring about a Grimm invasion of slaughter to further Salem's schemes.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: The handling of Sienna Khan in Volume 5 was so strongly criticized by the fandom that the creators acknowledged it and decided to address it in the Volume 6 Adam character short. The criticism focused on the idea that while Sienna introduced the idea of a moral grey area between being a freedom fighter and a terrorist, it was prevented from being explored at all due to Adam abruptly [[MauveShirt killing her]]. [[spoiler:The character short focused on displaying examples of anti-Faunus hate and violence that necessitated the more radical ideals Sienna believed, as well as show the impetus behind Ghira losing the favor of the White Fang to Sienna and Adam. Additionally, it demonstrated Sienna's overall authority, abilities in battle, and role in Adam's StartOfDarkness, allowing her character to be explored posthumously.]]

** Ruby takes ''three seasons'' to ask about the Silver Eyes, even though she spends much of that time travelling with two people (Ozpin and Qrow) who knew her mother well; and even then it comes around because of Maria joining the cast.

** Adam Taurus is a mass-murdering terrorist and a domestic abuser, portrayed as an embodiment of spite and cruelty. Any well-intentions he had for his actions has long since been lost as he got DrunkWithPower and began SlowlySlippingIntoEvil in the backstory. His handling is regarded as contentious due to a large portion of fans thinking he would have worked better as a well-intentioned anti-villain. Then there are some fans who attempt to whitewash Adam's canonical nastiness, ignoring or excusing many of his villainous actions. For example, they downplay his abuse of Blake, justifying his emotional manipulation by saying that he wasn't lying to her during his character short and arguing that he only vowed to destroy Blake's life in Volume 3 because she "betrayed the White Fang". [[spoiler:This became more common after Adam revealed his face, which not only proved he had a traumatic past but also [[EvilIsSexy increased his attractiveness significantly]]]].

** The shaming of Ozpin in Volumes 5 and 6 is meant to be a relatively clear-cut conflict with the entire group agreeing that Ozpin was in the wrong for keeping as many secrets as possible. However, Ozpin explains that his reasoning for keeping secrets is that Leo, Raven and countless others before usually betray or abandon him when they learn the truth, which happens again when his past is exposed by Jinn and it's revealed that he effectively did nothing wrong in Salem's origin story barring ''dying.'' It doesn't help that Ozpin is currently in the body of Oscar who gets the crap kicked out of him by Qrow and Jaune (alongside Yang physically intimidating him), and barring Ruby, no one stops to ask how Oscar is doing. The conclusion to this was some fans wondering what Ozpin actually did wrong and thinking Qrow, Jaune and Yang were in the wrong for physically assaulting a 14-year-old child.
** On a meta level, a significant number of fans like to believe that the show is largely the brainchild of Monty Oum, and that the head writers, Miles Luna and Kerry Shawcross, are ruining the series and vision he had. In truth, the show was conceived by the three of them together, as by his own admission Monty couldn't write, and Miles and Kerry often had to make sure Monty didn't take the scenes too far for RuleOfCool lest they interfere with the writing, best evident with Volume 2's finale ''Breach'', which is criticized for making the Grimm come across as glorified {{mook}}s after seeing RWBY, JNPR, and CFVY so easily decimate them.

** The first time Adam encounters Blake after the Black Trailer, his line is delivered with almost no emotion and therefore doesn't even seem to be a question. [[spoiler:When he's about to try and murder Blake, the line is supposed to show how far he's [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope fallen]] and how he [[TheSociopath can't be reasoned with]] anymore.]]

** After Clover's death in Volume 7, enraged fans who felt queerbaited saw new writer Eddy Rivas as the target of their ire due to being the co-writer for the episode. However, very little of the actual writing supported the notion that Qrow and Clover had anything beyond a friendship, with much of the evidence being animators going off-script and adding moments such as Clover's wink at Qrow.


** [[TheChessmaster Cinder Fall]] is the mysterious [[DarkActionGirl villain]] who desires to be "strong, feared and powerful". Working for [[BigBad Salem]], Cinder recruited two young fighters named Mercury Black and Emerald Sustrai to attack Amber, the Fall Maiden, to drain her of her powers. In the Vytal tournament, Cinder exploits Emerald's powers of illusions to make the noble warrior Pyrrha accidentally rip apart the sentient robot Penny with her magnetism power, before using the ensuing panic to let the Grimm attack Vale and Beacon Academy--commenting how "beautiful" the carnage is while having the attack filmed. Murdering Amber to take the rest of her powers, Cinder defeats Pyrrha in a pitched fight before coldly executing her with an arrow that burns her from the inside out. Injured by Ruby's Silver Eyes powers, Cinder recovers in volume five where she coerces Raven and her tribe to join Salem, later sadistically mocking Jaune over Pyrrha's murder, impaling Weiss in front of Jaune to put another death on his conscience, and killing Raven's apprentice Vernal to take her Spring Maiden powers for herself. [[{{Sadist}} Cruel]] and [[AmbitionIsEvil ambitious]], Cinder leaves the kingdoms and alliances of Remnant shattered in her quest for power.
