DC/RWBY is a 2023 mini-series by DC Comics crossing over the iconic web animation series RWBY with the various aspects of the DC Universe.

In the dark shadows of Gotham City, the mysterious beasts known as the Grimm have invaded the city and Batman is trying to figure out where they're coming from. However, his investigations lead him to encounter our group of heroic Huntresses that is Team RWBY. Can our young heroines pump the brakes on any sort of clashes before the Grimm overrun Earth and the rest of the DC Universe?!

Tropes involved in this series:

  • Alternate Continuity: While it's not exactly stated where in the RWBY timeline it takes place in, outside of being set in the Mistral Arc era by the looks of their clothes before they suddenly change (though Blake still has the bow in her hair, which she ditched early in Volume 4), this is certainly not the normal DC Universe, since James Gordon is Commissioner here where he's been out of that in the main universe for quite awhile.
  • Blown Across the Room: When Batman snags Ruby in his cape, this proves to be a big mistake when big sis Yang punches him.
    Yang: Hey, mister. That was my sister.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Batman gains a Semblance that seemingly lets him predict how to win fights.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Once Batman gains a Semblance, he easily takes out Team RWBY.
  • Fisher Kingdom: Being stuck in the DC Universe, Team RWBY's looks suddenly change when in combat with Batman, dumping the anime aspects of their looks and looking more like they belong in the DC Universe, complete with outfits themed around certain people and caked up in makeup. They react in shock upon realizing what has just happened to them.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Team RWBY tussles with Batman as they mistakenly believe that the GCPD and Batman are working together to suppress people while Batman hunts them down thinking they released the Grimm.
  • Reality Bleed: Gotham City's fear and despair is so bad that the Grimm were able to sense it and cross over. This is causing people in the DC Universe to develop Semblances while Team RWBY's looks and weapons are changed to match how it would be if they acted in the DC Universe.
  • Wretched Hive: When Ruby tells Batman what's going on, she explains that the Grimm smelt so much anger and despair in Gotham that they were able to cross over.
