     Team RWBY 

Weiss Schnee

Yang Xiao Long

  • Always Someone Better: Ren is her superior in pranking, while Winter is hers in Fanservice.
  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Makes one to Blake at the end of the School Play arc. Then Blake rejects her.
  • Berserk Button: Her hair being messed with.
  • Big Sister Instinct: Don't mess with her mother. Or Ruby. Or Weiss. You will regret it.
  • Big Eater
  • Book Dumb: Is explicitly mentioned to be absolutely terrible at her studies. However, she's shown to be quite smart in other areas, being a Magnificent Bitch in her own right as a member of the Antic Order and capable of teasing out cues of whether or not someone is being affected by Jaune's Semblance, for instance.
  • Buxom Is Better: Especially when it comes to teasing Weiss. Winter, however, is bigger, causing Yang no end of consternation.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: A variation. Yang constantly makes passes at Blake, but she makes it clear that she's both being serious and can't figure out how to convince Blake she's serious.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: She does have her kind side despite her constant teasing and flirting, as evidenced by her reactions during the Cockerel Festival and Siegmund.
    • Also, her reaction to a Grimm attempting to kill Weiss and her taking care of Blake during her Sick Episode.
    • She has the same motivation as Reflet does; she just wants to see her friends happy. Granted, she just doesn't have a very good way about it.
  • Cool Big Sis: Starts out as this before Flanderization and returns to it starting in volume 3. Among other things, despite her teasing, she gladly helps Pyrrha confess her feelings to Jaune and watches over Blake when she's sick.
  • Flanderization: Her behavior becomes far more apathetic and uncaring for others' feelings. Then the Antic Order takes umbrage at this, setting Weiss on her to set her straight.
    • She's starting to grow out of this, with her Cool Big Sis side being emphasised and her flirting with Blake revealed as a front for her trying to confess her feelings to her.
  • Handsome Lech: A female version. Blake and Pyrrha don't escape her flirting very easily.
  • Hidden Depths: It's revealed that Yang's flirting with Blake is actually her attempt at telling Blake of her feelings for her. She is revealed to be very concerned that she will never be able to make her feelings known to her.
  • Humiliation Conga: Is undergoing this currently. She's taking it in stride.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite having her bad moments, she's noticeably caring about her friends, even Weiss, and is continually trying to better herself to make up for her past and to be a better person for her Love Interest Blake.
  • Loveable Sex Maniac: Is incredibly perverted to the point that even Blake can't stand her sometimes.
  • Meta Guy: Along with Blake.
  • Ms. Fanservice: And revels in it.
  • Playing with Fire: Her Persona, Kyuubi-no-Kitsune.
  • The Prankster: Pranks everyone- except for Ren, of course, but even that can be waived when they disagree over pranking protocol.
  • Serious Business: Antics. She declares war because Ren accuses her of being unable to prank properly.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Ruby and Weiss.
    • Actually, she's this for everyone in general.
  • Team Mom: Starts out as this, was flanderised into a generic trickster and is currently settling back into this role. Her treatment of Blake, Pyrrha and Jaune is starting to reinforce her role.
  • The Tease: So much. There is nobody she's not willing to tease.
  • Troll: Especially to Weiss, but everyone, even her Love Interest Blake, is subject to the madness.
  • Unknown Rival: To Winter, who isn't even aware that Yang is angry about no longer being the most attractive girl on campus.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Despite constantly snarking at each other, it's made clear Weiss and Yang really care for each other. To the extent Yang considers Weiss like a sister to her.
    • Her relationship with Winter is this despite her one-sided rivalry, with her comforting Winter in the wake of Jaune choosing Pyrrha over her.

Blake Belladonna

Ruby Rose

    Team JNPR 

Jaune Arc

  • Battle Couple: With Pyrrha as of chapter 43 of Volume 3.
  • Butt-Monkey: He suffers a lot at the hands of everyone, even Weiss, the reigning queen of being a Butt-Monkey.
  • Chick Magnet: He has almost half the female cast after him. This is eventually downplayed to focus more on the Love Triangle between him, Pyrrha and Winter.
  • Declaration of Protection: Promises to make sure his world's Pyrrha doesn't die after witnessing her canonical death.
  • Erotic Dream: Heavily implied to have these on a regular basis about Pyrrha. Yang teases him about it.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: At least Ren does, sometimes. It really doesn't help that he makes an excellent Wholesome Crossdresser....
  • Guile Hero: Has some shades of this, especially with using the Shoggoth to distract Yang while he and Pyrrha get out of the Cosplay Café during the Valentine's Day special.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has one after seeing canon!Pyrrha die in the Volume 3 Reaction. It takes a mutual Cooldown Hug with Reactsverse!Pyrrha to get him out of it.
    • Later has a small one when he sees his world's Pyrrha about to be killed. Luckily, he snaps out of it fast enough to pull a Big Damn Heroes to save her.
  • In the Blood: Being Badass. Well, he does have Kamina (literally) and Yoko as parents.
  • I Just Want to Be Badass: A variation. Jaune is fully aware that everyone around him is a Badass, from his friends to his his teammates. He wants to be as Badass as them, not to keep up with them but to both preserve either Pyrrha or Winter's reputations and allow him to be an equal in any partnership with them.
    • He gets over it in chapter 43 in time to save Pyrrha's life from the poachers.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: His motivation for not accepting Pyrrha's advances are that he believes that unless he can do something to put himself on her level, Pyrrha, or indeed Winter, would suffer from loving him. Yang calls him out on it.
  • Insecure Love Interest: He doesn't think he's really worthy of Pyrrha due to him being Overshadowed by Awesome and his one feat (defeating the Grimmfather) being by sheer luck. Yang, Jaune's dad and Pyrrha herself lampshade how absurd this is, considering all the other reasons why girls are in love with him.
  • Made of Iron: Has to be to survive the crap he gets put through.
  • Oblivious to Love: Or so it seems.
  • Oh, Crap!: Understandably; he pulls this when Pyrrha is sent off on a dangerous mission to Mountain Glenn without the rest of team JNPR.
    • And then again when Professor Faust reveals Pyrrha is destined to die in battle before she even leaves school.
  • Only Sane Man: Unfortunately for him.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: Says this verbatim to Pyrrha during the events of Aftermath. Specifically, he says this after having a nightmare about canon!Pyrrha's death.
    • He says this again when Pyrrha gets sent off to a dangerous mission near Mountain Glenn.
  • The Pornomancer: His Semblance, which he doesn't appreciate.
  • Screw Destiny: Refuses to allow the prophecy about Pyrrha's death become true. Even if he has to literally fight the world to do it.
  • Ship Tease: With Weiss, Ruby, Ren, Pyrrha, Miltiades, Winter, Coco and Minako- in fact, it'd be easier to list the people he ISN'T teased with. He's also been teased with Morgan.
    • The Ship Tease with Pyrrha and Winter is played up more in Volume 3. Ultimately, it's Pyrrha he ends up with.
  • Super Empowering: Jaune's actual Semblance triggers as this.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Takes one when he witnesses Pyrrha nearly being killed. He resolves to Screw Destiny and protect her no matter what and pulls a Big Damn Heroes to save her.
  • Unequal Pairing: He's fully aware that Pyrrha and Winter are superior to him, socially, physically and mentally and so wishes to avert this, instead wanting to make something of himself to make him equal to them.
  • Unlucky Everydude
  • Unwanted Harem: His Semblance can quickly gather one of these.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: When dressed as Saber, he gets a lot of unwanted attention from other men.... and Blake.

Lie Ren

Nora Valkyrie

Pyrrha Nikos

  • Adaptational Badass: Not that she wasn't a Badass in canon, but Cassandra confirms that Reactsverse!Pyrrha could actually fight Prime!Cinder (the canonical Cinder) and win, unlike her canon self. It helps that Reactsverse!Pyrrha has two or three years of training and power on her canon self.
  • Battle Couple: With Jaune as of chapter 43 of Volume 3.
  • Badass in Distress: Is beaten up by vengeful poachers during the Mandatory Training Arc, needing Jaune to take a level in badass and save her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Still very, very dangerous despite being incredibly easy to fluster and embarrass, as shown with the Parody Sue and the fight with the Grimmfather.
  • Butt-Monkey: A minor case, but she has gotten caught by various antics when trying to kidnap Jaune.
  • Catapult Nightmare: Has one after witnessing her death in canon in Aftermath. To make matters worse, it's shown this is the fifth time that night she dreamed it happened.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Towards Jaune at times.
  • Covert Pervert: The Beach Party RWBY chapter shows the world that for all her seeming innocence, she has her moments.
    • Not to mention her finding Jaune's butt cute, as she reveals in the beginning of the second half of the Volume 3 Reaction.
  • Cultured Badass: And she writes prizewinning love poetry.
  • Genius Bruiser: She is one of the best Huntresses in the year and manages to keep up in antics with Yang and Blake, among other things.
  • Death Glare: That makes Yang and Nora back down.
  • Dogged Nice Girl: Towards Jaune, who is in love with Weiss and then becomes completely Oblivious to Love when he loses interest. Until Volume 3, at long last. And technically subverted, as Jaune already reciprocated her love.
    • It's to the point that Severa actually tries to comfort her.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: 'Pyr-Pyr', courtesy of her mother.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Yang outright admits that she finds Pyrrha incredibly attractive and if it wasn't for the fact that she was a Shipper on Deck for her and Jaune, she'd make out with her herself. Also, her fanclub seems to have both boys and girls in its ranks.
  • Heroic BSoD: Seeing yourself die will do that to you, as she does in the Volume 3 Reaction. It takes a mutual Cooldown Hug with Jaune to get her out of it.
  • Ms. Fanservice: One of her scenes involves her trying out various skimpy outfits that would get Jaune's attention. For no reason whatsoever. Pyrrha also gets the most scenes describing her costumes in rather minute detail.
  • Only Sane Man: Apart from her brief stint as a yandere, she generally stays out of the antics everyone else gets up to.
  • Out of Focus: She barely gets any focus in the Reactsverse.
    • This has reduced significantly over the last two volumes, to the extent that Pyrrha gets her own arc (Yuletide Dance) and is the main protagonist of the Valentine's Day special alongside Jaune, as well as becoming a focal character of most of the early part of Volume 3. This coincides with the writer himself warming to her as a character.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Her reasons for loving Jaune after Yang ensures she isn't being affected by his Semblance.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Towards Jaune. Her tendencies as this fade away as time goes on, however.
  • Tranquil Fury: Whenever she loses her temper or is about to. The one time she does lose it, it ends in a Curb-Stomp Battle.
  • Unrequited Tragic Maiden: And her stalkerish tendencies stem from her attempts to avert being unrequited. Unrequited no longer as of the end of the Yuletide Dance arc.
  • Yandere: She begins taking lessons from Velvet. They often coordinate kidnapping attempts of Weiss and Jaune.
    • Subverted: Pyrrha loses this trait around the tail end of Volume 2. It's more likely Pyrrha simply was frustrated with Jaune never noticing her over everything else than a genuine Yandere.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: If Professor Faust's prophecy is true, Pyrrha is supposed to die in battle even before she leaves Beacon.

How well does it match the trope?
