Single Crossovers


    A Certain Magical Index 
A Shattered Vale by Darkbetrayer
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with A Certain Magical Index
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Touma, Accelerator, and Last Order get caught in a strange light and transported to different places in Remnant. An injured Accelerator is quickly rescued by Team JNPR and Last Order is quickly taken in by Team RWBY. Unfortunately, Touma is taken in by Roman Torchwick and Neo, who plan to exploit his powers by tricking him into believing they are the good guys and the Hunters are the bad guys.

    Attack on Titan 
Attack on Titan A New Path by The Court of Talons and co-written by The Avenging Titan''
  • Recommended by Servos New Head
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Ozma and Salem have been at war for centuries. The fight has taken many lives and taken many centuries. The champion of the Brother of Light has failed countless times to complete his task. Now, more than ever, Remnant needs a new protector. It needs a man who knows the cruelty of life. A man who doesn't falter in doing the unthinkable. A dark guardian. Remnant needs...Eren Yeager.
  • Crossover with Attack on Titan
  • Comments: This one is unique for a crossover with RWBY as Eren's first and closes allies on Remnant aren't the titular team. While the first couple chapters are a bit rough, it really starts reeving up at chapter 5. Expect mystery, heartwarming moments, and action. It does start immediately after chapter 138 of the AOT manga, so beware of spoilers for that.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender 
The Legend of Ruby by Rassilon001
  • Recommended by roseunity
  • Crossover with Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Four Elements. Four Girls. An adventure ten thousand years in the making. In a world of both Spirits and Grimm, human beings possess a remarkable gift called bending, able to manipulate one of the four elemental powers. Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. This is their story. The story of Ruby, Weiss, Blake and Yang. The story of Team RWBY. And the Legend of Ruby.
  • Comments: It can feel a bit rushed at times, and its in need of some polishing, particularly with some spelling and grammar mistakes, but the idea itself is pure gold and the author does a wonderful job blending the two universes into one. Well, three if you count both generations of Avatar. Some of the plot twists can be seen coming a mile off, particularly to longtime fans of either series, but its interesting to see the characters stumble around with no idea while we the audience are in the know for once.

     Azur Lane 
Fairy Tales and Battle Reports by FloridaMan722
  • Recommended by Vinnymoneyho
  • Crossover with Azur Lane
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis:Jaune wanted to be a huntsman, a hero like his lineage, not some boring port paper-pusher 'Commander' that his family is pressuring him into. He wants to slay Grimm, but it'll be difficult with no transcripts and a broken sword. Maybe there's something in the basement to help him?
  • Comments: It's a funny and humourous story that makes Jaune the son of the battleship Kansen North Carolina. Its grammar is decent, the omakes are humorous or informative, and you can get a good laugh. And it starts off with Jaune beating up Duke of York in a panic.

''The Magic of Overwhelming Firepower: An RWBY and Azur Lane Crossover by [[ I Read To Live 99}}

  • Recommended by Vinnymoneyho
  • Crossover with Azur Lane
  • Status: Ongoing
  • SynopsisWhere a regular girl gets inserted into the world of Remnant. But she ain't no regular insert, because this one has been gifted enough firepower to level a small island or two. And maybe even a city if her wrath is incurred... Let's see how this one goes. Shall we?
  • Comments: It's only four chapters long but it's an interesting concept of an SI with near-modern Earth weaponry being dropped into Remnant. That and Remnant's first ship spirits being seen by it's natives.

    Azure Striker Gunvolt 
The KVKC Chronicles by raak1101
  • Recommended by Prometheus117
  • Crossover with Azure Striker Gunvolt Series
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: This is not a world of warring conflict between those born with power and those without. This is a world of fairy tales, where monsters and heroes are real. In another story, they were shackled by the notion of Adepts and Septimas. Here, they are freed by those of Hunters and Semblances. Crossover of RWBY and Azure Striker Gunvolt. Follows ''RWBY'' canon.


    Babylon 5 
Shadows and Silver Eyes by DarthDakka
  • Recommended by Khamul 91, Teslashark
  • Crossover with Babylon 5. However, foreknowledge of Babylon 5 is not needed for this story.
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A team of would-be heroines looking for their wayward friend, an ancient guardian who's begun to realize the center will hold no longer and others would find themselves set down different paths in the wake of a mysterious explosion.

Cover Art credit in Chapter 101)
  • Comments: one of the best Ben 10 and RWBY story with one of the best ship crossovers ships that needs more fanart and put into the fandom RWBY shipping with Yang Xiao Long

RWBBYVerse: Clash of Heroes by bcarandang1

  • Recommended by: tierhalibel
  • Status: Cancelled
  • Crossover with: Ben 10
  • Synopsis: Ben Tennyson is accidentally sent to the RWBY universe and tries to fit in. But when he finds out he's a clone of the actual Ben Tennyson, will he actually be able to fit in this foreign universe?
  • Comments: Although the shipping seemed rushed, the rest of the story is quite well written. I hear the writer will actually explain how the ship went so fast. Overall, good story.

Because We Could Not Be You by Masterweaver
  • Recommended by Qrow
  • Crossover With: BIONICLE
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: How harsh the world can be, that one's fate is chosen on a single choice, a single judgment. How cruel the world can be, that what is done to survive will taint forever. How cold the world can be, to either submit to become the hunter, or break free to become the hunted. Might it be wondrous, then, if two souls—one young and one very, very old—met together in such suffering? How strange they would appear to each other, not just in form but in action. How odd the world can be, that one small addition can change so little, and yet so much…

Still Alive by CrackPairingLover
  • Recommended by Sir Bearington
  • Crossover with BlazBlue
  • Status: Phase I Complete, with sequels planned.
  • Synopsis: What if Kazuma didn't die? What if The Boundary just teleported him in another world instead of destroying his body? Join Kazuma Kuvaru as he somehow ended up in the world of Remnant and making new friends, meeting new enemies, having new adventures and...romance? That's impossible…right?

Remnants of an Azure Dream by Cod of Justice

  • Recommended by Universalperson
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Crossover: BlazBlue
  • Other tags: Fix Fic, Quest Fic, Fusion Fic
  • Synopsis: In a Remnant different from the one you might know, a young woman starts writing her application to Beacon Academy. She writes down her name: Noel Vermillion. But then her feline teacher tells her to write her real name: Saya Mercury. So begins a tale of a Huntress raised by Heroes, born of the Azure...
  • Comments: A quest/role play where the player character is a (somewhat altered) BlazBlue character, though the canon RWBY characters appear as well. One of the high points of this quest is the worldbuilding - the settings have been combined in such a way that the result is actually better and more consistent than its source canons. There are a few clunky moments in early chapters, and sadly much of Saya's early life is skipped over, but there are powerful fight scenes and extremely strong character interactions. And Saya is an adorable badass.

A RWBY Zanpakuto by Azdoine
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Bleach
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Instead of gaining Zangetsu, Ichigo gains four Zanpakuto nicknamed Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang.
  • Comments: The website is in Russian, but is relatively easy to navigate and the story itself is in English. This fic is an AU version of the Bleach universe with many elements of RWBY.

RWBY and the Deathberry by thewhitearrow

  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Bleach
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Remnant is a world besieged by Grimm. During the initiation test for the new semester at Beacon Academy the students encounter an outsider. What will change with this outsider involved and who exactly is he?
  • Comments: Very dark. Yang looks into Ichigo's eyes and sees a man who has given up on life. According to his flashbacks, Soul Society lost against the Vandenreich and he was the only survivor.

Soul Hunter by SkywalkerT-65

  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Bleach
  • Status: Dormant; last updated November 2018
  • Synopsis: When Ruby Rose went to Beacon Academy two years early, she had assumed she was going to be the odd one out. Her sister, the Ice Queen Heiress, and the mysterious dark-haired girl aside. What she didn't expect, what none of them expected, was that an even more mysterious teenager would join them. One with a power no other Hunter or Huntress has...and one that just may turn the tide...
  • Comments: This is an AU version of Ichigo who moved to Remnant with his family as a child. As a result, he was trained solely by Isshin and there was no secrecy about his lineage, meaning he has access to his Shinigami, Hollow, and Quincy powers at the start. Despite this, the author works to make sure Ichigo is not overpowered and everybody contributes.

  • Synopsis: So it turns out that Vaults are scattered all over the galaxy. But what about Pandora? Had the planet run out of Vaults to open? Of course not.

    Carnival Phantasm 
Remnant of a Carnival by GradationAir87
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Carnival Phantasm
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: When Shirou destroyed the Grail, he wasn't expecting it to grant his wish anyways by turning into a rocket and spiriting him away. In a new world, filled with monsters called Grimm and superheroes called Huntsmen, he's finally able to pursue his dream to become a hero! Of course, Grail-kun isn't going to make it easy for him.
  • Comments: Although Shirou is from Carnival Phantasm, the story is semi-serious with a plot. Shirou ends up taking Jaune Arc's place in Beacon, but Jaune is not forgotten, as Grail-kun ends up corrupting him and he falls in with Junior and Roman Torchwick.

    Chrono Trigger 
Devourer of Worlds by x50413
  • Recommended by Lord Panther 14
  • Crossover with Chrono Trigger
  • Status: Ongoing

  • Comments: This story is a quest on a forum board that's been active since Feb 2018 and has completed its first volume Sep 2018.


    Dark Souls 
The Legends of Dark Souls by runicwolf
  • Recommended by Corrosion
  • Crossover with Dark Souls
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Heroes phase in and out through the centuries that pass. Some are forgotten, some are forever immortalized, and others revive through some means. Whether a historylong forgotten by the world of Remnant, or fractures of another world being connected through. Regardless, the very fabric wavers, and relations shift and obscure. What is known, is heroes times past are in Remnant.
  • Comments: A truly hilarious fanfic that stars the Memetic Badass characters of the Dark Souls series such as Giantdad and Champion Gundyr.

    The DC Universe 
Hunters of Justice by trestwho
  • Recommended by scottycj
  • Crossover with The DC Universe
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: The World of Remnant is no more. Destroyed by the knowledge collector Braniac, all that remains is a few captured cities and a small band of huntsmen and huntresses. Only teams RWBY & JNPR can now save their captured home. But first they must adapt to their new environment and become heroes, in a world of superheroes, villains and Gods among men.
  • Comments: Basically this is a divergent canon taking place during RWBY Volume 3 and Post-Darkseid War in an ambiguous DC Universe continuity (there is no indication whether this is Silver Age, Post-Crisis, New 52, Rebirth, Earth One, DCAU, etc.). Basically Team RWBY and Team JNPR are given a grand tour of the DC Universe and the grander world they've stepped into out of the shadows of the localized Remnant they've been used to for so long. There may or may not be a plot involving Salem in the future, and Ozpin makes an appearance in an Elseworlds style chapter, but for now, besides those two things, the only elements that make it a crossover at this point are the presence of Grimm on Earth that have been carried over from Remnant and Team RWBY and JNPR. It is HEAVILY centered around the DC Universe. It's worth giving a try, and holy God it's long at 481k words. 0_0

Deadpool is inflicted on RWBY byThe Layman

    Death Battle 
Chuck and Segata Arrive In Remnant by Le MAO XXIII
  • Recommended by ultimomant, Robinton
  • Crossover with DEATH BATTLE!

Remnant of Light by bathedinblood
  • Recommended by Gun Master_J, Z-man, super_big_mac
  • Crossover with Destiny
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After saving the Warmind Rasputin from attack, the Vanguard is given the location of a possible Golden Age colony that was not wiped out by the Darkness (Remnant obviously). A single veteran Titan is charged with the responsibility of making contact with this colony and bringing them back into humanity's fold. But it will not be easy.
  • Comments: This is a great read. The lores of Remnant and Destiny mesh together like Peanut butter and chocolate, and the author takes full advantage of this. Not to mention the guardians are even more awesome here than in canon. (Is it just me, or has everything in this fic become more awesome with what's been shown of Destiny 2?)
    • I have to agree, it's clearly not bathedinblood's first time writing the RWBY characters (or is it?), and aside from an occasional minor spelling error or repeated word, it's all-around fantastic! I especially love how they slipped in minor crossovers from other series in both Remnant of Light and Beacons of Hope. My only hint to these crossovers: Italians and ice.
  • Now has a sequel, Beacons of Hope, which can be found here.[]]

Remnant Inferis: DOOM by GamerJay
  • Recommended by Hyper Exia
  • Crossover with DOOM (2016)
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Remnant never knew what true horror was until demons more terrifying than the Grimm arrived, seeking to conquer a world they think belongs to them.

The Doom Slayer's path of perpetual torment continues, and this time he will no longer be walking it alone...

    Dragon Ball Z 
This War Of Mine
  • Recommended by: Qrow
  • Crossover with: Dragon Ball Z
  • Status: Dormant; last updated July 2020
  • Synopsis: Destroying the Androids and bringing peace to his timeline, sixteen-year-old Son Gohan finds himself waking up on Remnant. Sick of fighting, he desires a life of peace, but destiny has other plans. The shadow of a terrible evil has followed him to Remnant. Can he truly live up to his father's legacy?
  • Comments: Initially seems like the standard "Character X falls into Universe Y" crossover plot, but things go wildly Off the Rails fast, resulting in a story with far more originality than the standard crossover fare, yet maintaining characterization throughout. Fans of either series ought to give this one a look.

    The Dresden Files 
Dust and Motes by shandromand
  • Recommended by Azryth
  • Crossover with The Dresden Files
  • Status: Dormant; last updated March 2019
  • Synopsis: You'd think that a Wizard could catch a break once in a while. Such is often not the case. For once, Harry Dresden catches a good one - but it won't be easy.
  • Comments: This story has Yang appearing in the Dresden Files world on Demonreach Island. The author does a good job of imitating Jim Butcher's writing style and snark for an entertaining read. The work is ongoing and, at the time of this writing, hasn't gotten much out of Yang and Harry Dresden meeting each other phase.


Little Dragon of the Sun by Fixerupper
  • Recommended by: Calculatus
  • Status: Dormant
  • Crossover with: Exalted
  • Synopsis: Yang wakes up in Creation, Exalted.

  • Recommended by Hero2014, smallturtle
  • Crossover with Exalted
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A maiden stood on the edge of an unfamiliar battlefield which demanded skills she had not learned. She would walk through an age of strife wielding Fate as her weapon, leaving a trail of rose petals in her wake. A RWBY/Exalted crossover.
  • Comments: A heavily plot-driven fic that fuses the world of Exalted and RWBY seamlessly, crafting a unique setting and plot.


    Fairy Tail 
Thunder by IceWarrior13
  • Recommended by Deegeetal
  • Crossover with Fairy Tail
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: After Nora Valkyrie is injured in the struggle in Atlas, her teammates make a desperate decision in order to ensure her safety, and she finds herself stranded on a different world. Now, Nora has to come to terms with the life she left behind in order to move forward—all while surrounded by magic and bonds and all of the things that failed Remnant, but seem to thrive in Fiore.''
  • Comments: One of the few Nora-centric fanfics out there with a substantial word count, Thunder contains excellent characterization and character interactions, and the well-written struggles of a huntress who just lost everything and is now stuck trying to make a new life in a different world.

    Fallout Series 
New World Blues by Doppelganger312
  • Recommended by iamaFence
  • Crossover with Fallout
  • Status: Dead (last updated January 2017)
  • Synopsis: While investigating the alleged alien sightings north of Vegas, the Courier is abducted and, through a mishap, transportalpondered to the planet Remnant. It seems, however, that the planet's newest "hero" isn't as heroic as he first appears. Can a man be trusted to save a world when he's just as likely to turn his back on it?
  • Comments: A hilariously insane Courier finds himself in the world of Remnant; antics fueled by his complete insanity make for quite a laugh.

Pit Stop by Konstantinsen

  • Recommended by JKDead
  • Crossover with Fallout: New Vegas
  • Status: In Progress
  • Synopsis: The Courier just wants a break from babysitting four teenaged girls who clearly do not belong in the Wasteland.
  • Comments: Crossover between New Vegas and RWBY. Post NCR victory. Starts off as humorous chapters depicting the idealistic RWBY characters clashing with the morally-gray Crapsack World of the post-apocalyptic Mojave, before getting more serious as it shows how much their actions can throw a wrench into the carefully balanced power dynamics between the NCR and the One-Man Army that is Courier Six. Good sense of humor, good characterizations, good intrigue, would highly recommend.

    Fate/Stay Night 
Happy Ending? by Dragonscries
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Fate/stay night franchise
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Instead of Super Speed, Ruby Rose's Semblance is that she holds the spirits of seven Servants within her, which makes it seem like she has multiple personality disorder. She can temporarily take on their powers or materialize them in the real world. Unfortunately, Ruby is pessimistic and cynical and uninterested in becoming a hero or a Huntress. Except she may not have a choice.
  • Comments: This is a very different Ruby, but it makes sense given what she has to deal with why she would turn out this way.

Monomyth by Slavok

  • Crossover with: Fate/stay night
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Beacon receives a message that Jaune Arc's parents, Gilgamesh Arc and Arturia Pendragon Arc, are visiting. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Comments: Extremely hilarious as we see Ozpin, Port, and Oobleck's uncharacteristic terror at learning that Mr. and Mrs. Arc are coming and Glinda's exasperation. While it's a borderline Crack Fic, we also get some nice development and characterization, especially the scene where we learn just how Gilgamesh and Saber entered Remnant and got together.

Pieces out of Line by Wrathie Winsre

  • Crossover with Fate/stay night.
  • Status: Dead

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: At the end of his long journey, Shirou Emiya is reincarnated as Ruby Rose while Saber/Arturia Pendragon is reincarnated as Jaune Arc.

He wished upon the Holy Grail for her to find a world where she wouldn't suffer any longer. Strangely enough, he didn't expect himself to be picked up along for the ride as well!
  • Pairings: Shirō Emiya & Pyrrha Nikos
  • Comments: This is pretty sporadically updated. However, the sporadic updates are well worth the quality of the chapters. eppelMax is able to deliver quality character interaction and stellar fight scenes. While some characters may seem to be OOC, it is important to remember that Shirō is taking the spot of Jaune. Shirō is everything Jaune is not. He is skilled, snarky, observant, and confident. This allows for those interesting character interactions mentioned previously.

    Final Fantasy series 
Destinies Aligned
  • Recommended by: santos32
  • Crossover with: Final Fantasy XV
  • Pairings: Noctis/Luna
  • Status: Dormant; last updated April 2018
  • Synopsis: Under mysterious circumstances, all the members of Team RWBY are transported to Eos as children, with no memories of their past lives. The Astrals have foretold that when the Chosen King comes of age to save the world, these four girls would stand by him and his friends, possibly knowing more of their past lives in the process.
  • Comments: From the offset, this fic is a slightly altered retelling of XV's main plot with the introduction of the RWBY girls. The biggest example, by far, is having Ruby and Yang being taken in by Regis, becoming Noctis' adoptive sisters in the process. The banter between the Chocobros and their new companions along the road trip is very natural-sounding and akin to the dialogue from the game, and it does a good job of reinforcing the bond between Noct, Ruby and Yang as siblings. The decision to connect them this way also makes it unique from other fics which would rush ships off right away.

Motion Sickness by Wu Gang

  • Crossover with: Final Fantasy VII
  • Recommended by NGD_OMEGA
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Diverging at the start of volume 4, Jaune reforges Pyrrha's weapons into a massive sword. He seeks revenge against the one who killed her, even if it costs him his life. With a different semblance, Limit Break, he will be the one to slay Cinder.

Of Crystal Shards and Dust

  • Recommended by: santos32
  • Crossover with: Final Fantasy XV
  • Status: Dormant; last updated February 2020
  • Synopsis: To prevent a dangerous future from coming to pass, the Kingdom of Lucis is transported into the world of Remnant, becoming its fifth kingdom as it establishes a deep history with their new surroundings. Millennia later, King Regis sends his son Noctis and his friends to Beacon Academy as part of a transfer program between Lucis and Vale to build ties between them. This leads to a reunion between the prince and childhood friends Ruby and Yang after several years, as the newly dubbed teams RWBY and LAPI make the most of academy life. Despite the fun and games, Regis soon discovers that some of their problems from Eos have followed them into their new world...
  • Comments: After several chapters of well-done exposition focused on Lucis' integration into Remnant, the fic properly starts as an modified retelling of RWBY, with XV's plot soon to follow. The writer is able to mix up the Chocobros' presence very nicely, allowing them to play off not just the RWBY girls, but JNPR as well. The chapters where the XV boys enter Beacon tend to be more or less word-for-word recreations of RWBY's first few episodes and follow similar beats, but even those are given unique twists that the authors promise will lead to a different beast that merges the series' stories together and will go into uncharted territory for the RWBY/LAPI supergroup.

    Game of Thrones 
Red Rose of Winterfell by Warmachine375
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Game of Thrones
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: "In the outskirts of Winterfell, a young woman wearing red of cloak and carrying a scythe leaving a trail of roses in the winter that is coming soon.."
  • Comments: This is an older, experienced Ruby Rose who has lost her naivete but not her heroism who lands in Westeros and starts changing up the Game of Thrones.
    • I'm going to have to de-rec, on the grounds that the author needs to have less than one run-on sentence a paragraph. There were many other problems, but that was a big one. -nate9799

    The Gamer 
The Games We Play by Ryuugi
  • Recommended by Gentlemens Dame 883, Psyner, boonerunner, St0rm, Robinton
  • Crossover with The Gamer.
  • Status: Complete as of December 31st 2015, with sequel announced for sometime in the future
  • Synopsis: After getting rejected from Signal again, Jaune becomes a Gamer, with all the RPG Mechanics 'Verse shenanigans you might expect from that, and his life takes an unwanted turn when he accidentally gets himself involved with the White Fang. Little does he know that this is far from the limit of how "fun" things are going to get. Starts off pre-series, slightly AU-ish.
  • Comments: A really pleasant read. You feel a level of emotional investment you find rarely in other fanfics. I recommend this to anyone who wants a fresh perspective on Jaune Arc.

GAROSSBR Of Makai by EvaShinobiKaiserKnight
  • Recommended by: Strafe 2409
  • Crossover with: GARO
  • Status: Complete. A sequel, titled GARO: Remnant Knight that focuses on Sirius and Ruby's children, as well Weiss' son. has been cancelled, but the author is promising a reboot.
  • Synopsis: "Where there is light, shadows lurk and fear reigns. Yet by the blade of Knights, mankind was given hope". When the Seal of the Horror who is the Mask of Messiah is being threatened, a team must be formed from some of the best of the Makai Knights and Makai Priests. The team name is SSBR (read: Saber), and the bearer of the Golden Knight title is the leader. He, alongside two fellow Knights and a Priestess, are assigned by the Watchdog of Vale Kingdom to help team RWBY and JNPR become the next great Hunters, all while protecting the kingdom from Horrors and Grimms.
  • Comments: The story itself covers the first two Volumes of RWBY's story, and the writer is currently writing the recently released third volume. While retaining the core of RWBY's story, it also incorporates the fight scenes and events from the TV series, as well the anime continuity. Of course, the writer also adds some originality to make the story fresh. One of the best examples is Ruby, while continuing her duty as a Huntress, she becomes a Makai Knight, once she inherits the Scorching Knight title: Yaiba. Grammar and punctuation issues aside, overall it is a well-written story.

    Genshin Impact 
Fools by Everpeach
  • Recommended by KnightSpark
  • Crossover with Genshin Impact
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: As a battle is waged over a ruined city, a long-planned plot is rushed into its endgame. And a fool dons his mask.
  • Comments: Despite this fanfic being only two chapters long, there are some things to say about it. First off, Jaune as the 12th Fatui Harbinger was quite a surprise, but not an unwelcome one. Plus, he was able to save Pyrrha and defeat Cinder, taking the Relic in the process. Next, he has some reasonable clout within in the Fatui, as most of its members address him with respect. As I said, there are only two chapters so far, but I'm already interested in what happens next, considering Childe has made his appearance in Atlas.

The God of Destruction Comes to Remnant by DragnonKingDragneel25 (Trope Page: The God of Destruction comes to Remnant)

  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Godzilla
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Humanity attempts to get rid of Godzilla with an experimental weapon, but instead of destroying him, it sends him to Remnant in the body of a dinosaur Faunus. Asskicking and carnage ensues. Fic begins sometime before RWBY Vol 1.
  • Comments: Warning, eventual harem. Godzilla may be rough and antisocial, but he learns quickly and his interactions with Velvet and Coco are adorable. The crossover is extended when it is eventually revealed that Rexy and Blue from Jurassic World and the now grown up protagonists of The Land Before Time have also been sent to Remnant as Faunus. Later, Mothra, her son Mothra Leo, and Godzilla's sons Minya and Godzilla Junior also arrive. Trust me, it's better than it sounds.


Wolves That Walk Alone by TheManThatWalksTheAbyss115
  • Recommended by passerby18
  • Crossover with Halo
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: There's always been growing legends in Remnant. Some of fearless warriors and others of horror, but there's one that's recently been picked up by the inhabitants. A legend of a man who was more akin to a wolf without a pack, barely speaking and doing his deed before leaving without a trace. After all... some people just want isolation rather than company.
  • Comments: Incredibly well-written about Noble Six traveling Remnant attempting to find his way back to the UNSC, you can really tell that Goblin Slayer and The Mandoarlian were huge inspirations while Ozpin truly earns the title of 'Manipulative Bastard'. Unfortunately, the author has been harassed by naysayers in the comments and his PMs.

  • Comments: Very well written, with an interesting story. The OC is Very Flushed Out and important to the plot (something that does not always happen. It was Impossible for me to put down till I caught up in Book 3. I've never even read Inheritance Cycle and I still was able to follow with no issues.


    Jo Jo's Bizarre Adventure 
Joseph Joestar: Hamon Hunter by lolrus555
  • Recommended by Troscus
  • Crossover with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Battle Tendency
  • Status: Dormant; last updated July 2020
  • Synopsis: Beacon Academy was already a strange place to begin with, but with the trickster of the Joestar bloodline now attending the school, Team RWBY's and Team JNPR's next four years here are now guaranteed to be truly bizarre. Rated T for language and the usual amount of blood you'll find in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
  • Comments: Young Joseph is a delight in this story. While RWBY certainly is no Slice of Life show, it's much more grounded than JJBA, and the calmer setting lets Joseph's bizarre personality clash with his situation. The RWBY characters are difficult to comment on, as I haven't caught up to where the author is writing from, but they seem in character even during their interactions with Joseph.

The Requiem of Remnant by The Black Mage of Phantasm

  • Recommended by:MidnightSwordGuy
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Crossover with: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind
  • Synopsis: He was not aware of how he got to this new world. He could not see a way to return home. Some might say he had nothing...But they would be wrong. He had his wits, his skills, and most of all his ambitions. And even in a new world, there was still an underworld of crime he could rise to the top of. A golden wind is about to sweep through Remnant.
  • Comments: Dark, exhilarating, and having the best take on Giorno Giovanna in Fanfiction, the author takes the best of both series and combines them into a fantastic story! With intense fights and vivid descriptions, this story shows great promise.

Remnant's Bizarre Adventure: Beacon is Unbreakable by The Inkasters

  • Status: Dormant; last updated December 2020
  • Crossover with: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
  • Synopsis: To live with his friends and family, safe in their homes as his grandfather had dreamed? That was what Higashikata Josuke fought for.
  • Comments: A very descriptive and well-written crossover that blends the two series in a way that fits into the existing canon of RWBY while also merging in the lore of JJBA. There is plenty of world-building, character interactions that remain true to who the characters are in the canon material, and fights that show the best of each respective series. Said fights include Josuke vs. Bruno and Nora vs. Okuyasu. Highly recommended for anyone who's a fan of both or either series!


    Kamen Rider Series 
Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: Grimm Eclipse! by Kamen Rider Zer0
  • Recommended by: DVD181
  • Crossover with: Kamen Rider Ex-Aid
  • Status: Dormant; last updated April 2019
  • Synopsis: The story of the greatest Huntress team and ultimate Huntsman Riders teaming up to stop the single greatest epidemic to ever threaten Remnant - all while still attending school.
  • Comments: A very well-written fic in its' early stages. The Ex-Aid characters are blended very well into RWBY's setting (e.g: Professor Taiga; students Emu and Kiriya), and the other more minor crossovers with other game franchises don't feel forced at all. This was my inspiration for writing an Ex-Aid crossover fic; well worth the read!

RWBY: Ghost of Remnant by striberx

  • Recommended by Strafe 2409
  • Crossover with Kamen Rider Ghost
  • Status: Complete for Volumes 1, 2, and 3
  • Synopsis: Remnant. The world where Huntsmen and Huntresses live. For years they have fought Grimm without fear. But a new threat emerges from the afterlife. With these new monsters only one hero can save this world... And he only has 99 days before his power and life vanish forever...
  • Comments: Another good crossover between RWBY and Tokusatsu. While maintaining the original core stories between the two series, it also incorporates some original arcs to make the story fresh and interesting. Some of the original chapters involve not only the 15 Luminary Eyecons, but also the Legend Rider Eyecons and even some original Eyecons. It also introduces Ghost's predecessors like Wizard, OOO, Drive and even Decade as their mentors. In addition, several chapters also including original subplot, such as the romantic relationship between Weiss and one of the OC, the latter of whom is Kamen Rider Specter in this fic. A great crossover with great storytelling and character development.

Rider Time Zi-O: Roze from Remnant by Lord Zero Master

  • Recommended by Epsilon and EpicLinkSam
  • Crossover with Kamen Rider Zi-O
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A twist of fate sends Ruby Rose to a new world for an important task, a task that will change the very course of history for both Earth and Remnant: "It is time for the Heisei Kamen Riders to pass their power down to the future! But with the appearance of a simple, honest soul far from home, what will the future hold? Rejoice, for the birth of a new age!"
  • Comments: A well done story with Ruby being integrated into the world of Riders where her presence drastically alters Sougo’s journey. Examples include tossing out the Only One Me Allowed Right Now rule that was used in the first half of Zi-O, Ruby becoming a Rider herself, Sougo meeting past Riders in a different order compared to TV series canon and Swartz recruiting Tid and Finis. And the story brings in a unique twist, with arcs involving the Zi-O heroes visiting Remnant before returning back to their world with the rest of Ruby's team and making use of post series Rider stories like Ex-Aid's Another Ending Trilogy, the New World Cross-Z special and even the Zangetsu Stage Show.

  • Pairing(s): Sora/Ruby Rose, Lea aka Axel/Yang Xiao Long, Ventus/Weiss Schnee, Roxas/Xion, Aqua/Terra, Jaune Arc/Pyrrha Nikos, Riku/Namine, Kairi/Oscar
  • Comments: A magnificent work thus far, adopted from fandombard12, lyokoMARVELanime has recrafted this crossover to encompass the events of Kingdom Hearts III except when Xehanort struck Kairi down, Sora WASN'T able to bring her back. As a result, Sora has lapsed into a Heroic BSoD, and has been training every single spare moment he has, from dawn to dusk, until Riku sends word that Yen Sid, who happens to be friends with Ozpin, who later turns out to be a Shipper on Deck for Roseheart aka Ruby x Sora, wishes to see him. Turns out Kairi's Not Quite Dead, thanks to a spell the Master of Masters had placed on No Name, and thus Sora, Roxas, Lea, and Ventus journey to Remnant and become the Huntsman Team SLVR (pronounced "Silver"). However, where there's a keyblade wielder there's bound to be Heartless and Nobodies this time led by Braig aka Xigbar aka Luxu, who's apparently aligned with Salem. Needless to say, hijinks and action ensue... and Sora finds himself developing feelings for Ruby that make him question his feelings for his old flame...

  • Synopsis: Aqua didn't know what would happen when she fell into the Realm of Darkness. The last thing she expected was having to raise two little girls. With one of them being a Keyblade Wielder, she has her work cut out for her.''
  • Comments: Aqua being a mother for Ruby and Yang offers a unique dynamic to the story. Not does Ruby and Yang have a mother figure, gives them unique and good character development. Aqua as a mother feels well balanced and fresh for the story.

RWBY Hearts: The Journey by Horrorfan247

  • Crossover with Kingdom Hearts
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: After the celebration of Team RWBY reuniting, the whole group is attacked by mysterious figures in black coats. However, Jaune, Ruby, and Sun are both saved and are brought to a weird tower. The Knight, Red Reaper, and Monkey Faunus will join a certain keyblade wielder as they travel many worlds to find their friends. While an Organization takes a keen interest in Jaune and Ruby.
  • Comments: This is very enjoyable with Ruby, Jaune and Sun going to various Disney worlds in order to find their friends who have been captured by Organization XIII. However, I'm more interested in the drama between Blake and Yang, as well as Jaune's brewing anger regarding Cinder killing Pyrrha, which honestly is the whole reason I'm invested in this fanfic. That aside, it's very good and the suspense will keep you on your toes.

    The Legend of Zelda series 
Unknown Legends by WizardlyWords
  • Recommended by: dracogeorge
  • Crossover with The Legend of Zeldanote 
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In a land he doesn't know, he is surrounded by things he can't understand. Rules, Government, Weapons, Schooling, even their Goals. They are all unknowns, but so is he to them. Link, and the memories of his friends. But there is one common rule between their world and his. The Unknown has the Advantage. So he will remain just that as long as he can. [Pre-Season 3, Min-Canon Change]
  • Comments: The interactions between the characters are well written, and it does a good job of showing the various viewpoint characters thoughts and personalities, especially showing the personalities of the various masks. Pre-Season 3.
    • To be fair, this story has a lot of failing points. The characters are flat and defined by a single character, Ruby her cuteness, Yang her sister role, and most glaringly Blake has no personality beyond her obsession with the White Fang, which plays into her interactions with Link. Link is fairly well written, but his interactions with the students are somewhat difficult to work through. The author also has a habit of explaining things to the point of excess, between repeating explanations of something explained paragraphs before and general looping conversations. This plays into the characterization at times.

With no way to get a message out of the planet's strange field of interference, they're forced to seek help from someone in a position of power; Headmaster Ozpin of Beacon Academy.
  • Comments: Takes place between A's and Strikers and begins just before RWBY: Volume 2. Does a good job of having the crossover characters throw For Want of a Nail twists into Volume 2's plot without completely derailing it.
    • Now has a sequel - HunterS (Dormant; last updated November 2018)

Trapped on the edge of an endless game, his teenaged life will never be the same. With armor of high-tech ammunition, he will fight the corruption of the world, and learn what it means to be a hero.

  • Comments: A very well-written fic set in the same universe as another Marvel crossover by the same author, in which Whitley ends up becoming Iron Man. Plot elements as a whole are mainly a blend of the MCU and Armored Adventures, although with some slight variances.

    Mega Man 
The Blue Huntsman by LogBook

  • Comments: The Blue Huntsman is one of the most unique Megaman Crossover stories to have ever been written. Not only is the dialogue with the characters well developed, the story does well in exploring the black and white areas along with grey areas. The story get progressed bigger and bigger as more mysteries start to show up with fun surprises at every turn. Plus creating character devolvement that fair surpasses the canon show it has crossover with.

    Metro Last Light 
Light at the End by Blinding Phoenix
  • Recommended by: dracogeorge
  • Status: Defunt as of late 2018
  • Crossover with: Metro: Last Light
  • Synopsis: While on patrol after the good ending of Last Light, Artyom and the Dark One child (later named Malyshnote ) wake up on Remnant with no idea how they got there, and are rescued by team RWBY.
  • Comments: The interactions between Artyom, Malysh, and the cast of RWBY are well written, and the author does a great job of how many things the people of Remnant take for granted are absolutely amazing to Artyom (things like new clothes, green grass, flowers, fruit). Massively diverges from canon with Artyom and Malysh returning the power Cinder stole to Amber, and Amber killing Cinder. Also, Khan has (somehow) arrived on Remnant, searching for Artyom.

    Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor 
The Dreamer Gate by Malignent
  • Recommended by QrowBarr
  • Crossover with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
  • Status: Complete, Volume 2 is now released.
    • Volume 2 Dormant; last updated November 2020
  • Sypnosis: Thousands of Uruk-Hai are drawn to Remnant after a ritual gone wrong, and are more than capable of bringing their own taste of war to this new world. Now the people of Remnant must deal with this new and numerous threat. As the Tournament draws near, and the actions of the Uruk Leaders grows ever bolder, can peace truly be maintained?
  • Comments: Recommended to those who have played the Shadow of Mordor series. Warning, contains moments of intense violence, dark and dirty humor, and many canonical divergences. The story does a good job in taking an entire species of otherworldly, foreign monsters and have them adapt, grow, and even blend-in in an equally foreign world. As you can tell, this fic is about how these baddies interact with this new world around them, with the fic taking advantage of the game's Nemesis System to mold entirely unique and quirky characters. It has some grammar and spelling issues, though the read itself is engaging, with many battles and character interaction.

    My Hero Academia 
My Huntsman Academia by gorilla_fingers
  • Crossover with My Hero Academia
  • Recommended by reppuzan
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Izuku Midoriya/Yang Xiao Long, Lie Ren/Nora Valkyrie
  • Summary: Ever since he was little, Izuku Midoriya knew that he wanted to be a Huntsman who could save others like his lifelong idol, Toshinori Yagi. But Izuku was born a Moon Child, meaning that his soul was so weak that it would never produce an Aura or a Semblance, making it virtually impossible for him to threaten the Grimm. But a twist of fate led him to meet the world's greatest Huntsman in person, who would then give Izuku the means to achieve his impossible dream. Now enroute to Beacon Academy, Izuku hopes to take his first steps towards becoming the world's greatest Huntsman.
  • Comments: The story is a Quest Fic (meaning that it's written as though the audience has a say in how the story goes) primarily centered around Izuku and his challenges in coming to Beacon. The author blends the RWBY and My Hero Academia seamlessly and shakes up canon to create an original story. Grammar and spelling could use work at times, but it's a worthwhile (and voluminous) read with a devoted fanbase and hundreds of canon and non-canon sidestories written by the author and fans.


    One Punch Man 
The Fist of Remnant by BrightestDarkness
  • Recommended by Corrosion, Robinton
  • Crossover with One-Punch Man
  • Status: Dormant; last updated January 2018
  • Synopsis: In the ruined crater that once held the Forever Fall, forces beyond Remnant's comprehension are stirring. Well, maybe more strolling around looking for Udon and the way home than stirring but that's beside the point; a bald justice has emerged into Remnant with his sidekick, seeking justice and defending the weak. After they fix the moon first that is.
  • Comments: One of the best One Punch Man crossover fics out there. Each of the characters in this fic stay true to their canon personalities, such as Genos being serious about everything, and Saitama being his usual self. The humour is great, and the author does an amazing job of contrasting Saitama's general invulnerability and plainness with the other more complex characters in the RWBY universe.
    • A bit more cracky than One Punch Man canon.


    Persona 5

  • Recommended by Corrosion
  • Crossover with Red vs. Blue
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: What if, instead of Caboose ending up in Vic's fourth wall breaking episode, he ended up in the world of Remnant? What if Agent Washington tagged along? Story starts before Season 15 and before Volume 3. Rated T because it's Red vs Blue.
  • Comments: One of the best crossovers out there. Character depictions are pretty much spot-on, and the humour is there. The story itself is also updated incredibly frequently, with updates containing more than four thousand words most of the time. This is a fic I'd definitely recommend.

Stuck within a world of creatures beyond my imagining, of hunters and huntresses. I have to get out of here, finally recovered I can start over. I have to go, I have to find the way back.
  • Comments: An interesting take on the world of Remnant from the eyes of the Meta as he tries to figure out how to return back to the world of Red vs. Blue. There are two OC's on Cinder's factions. However, they are established characters from other series that keep their personality.

  • Recommended by Termin8r
  • Crossover with Tales Series
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Revenge. Something simple and yet difficult. But even so, that is his objective, one he will complete. Even if he doesn't know the culprit, or if he has to attend to an academy against his will, or even if he was just a piece of a chess game that has been in pause for 4000 years. Has elements and characters of the Tales Of Series. Yang x OC pairing. Fixing grammar of all chapters. Corrected so far 1-4.
  • Comments: Despite its grammar issues, it's a very engaging read. It does a smart job at combining both universes and has probably one of my favorite OC protagonists ever.

The Daemon Eater's Rose byRyuJudge6614

  • Recommended by Knight Spark
  • Crossover with Tales of Berseria

Here, she will face new challenges and have a second chance at life, and meet a certain silver-eyed huntress along the way.
  • Comments: A fantastic redemption arc story for Velvet Crowe. Velvet becomes naturally more heroic thanks Ruby who helps balances the character development. Not only is the story well paced, the character devolvement for the RWBY characters feel natural and not regressed compared to the actual canon. Plus the two main shipping for the story is build up in a believable and both build and support and completing each other.

RWBY: Rose In Black by The Pikamence
  • Recommended by Pikamencer 079
  • Crossover with Marvel Comics, mainly Venom
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The planet Remnant, several light years from Earth, is home to many young men and women who are willing to train to become Huntsmen and Huntresses, great warriors who combat the rampant evil plaguing the world. But what if something else made its way to this fantastic battleground, something more alien than even the Grimm? What if a symbiote landed onto Remnant?
  • Comments: A For Want of a Nail-styled fic in which a symbiote crash-lands in Vale and bonds to Ruby Rose as she first enters Beacon, altering the trajectory of the first three volumes of the series and Ruby's growth as a Huntress-in-training. It also applies as an Alternate Continuity since some details (most notably the fate of Summer Rose) are altered before the divergence occurs for the sake of the story.

  • Synopsis: A man once said perhaps victory is in the smaller things; things that require a simpler, more honest soul.

Will that be true in the grim darkness of the far future?

  • ''Comments: A post-Volume 8 tale where, after falling from Remnant, Ruby arrives on a sparsely populated Imperial world facing an Ork invasion. However, she arrived on the very eve of Cadia's Fall and will soon begin to make great ripples throughout the Era Indomitus. A fascinating premise, and one where the author delivers and even exceeds the potential put forward.

  • Synopsis: As the 41st millennium draws to a close, Yang Xiao Long appears in the Imperium of Man, lost and bereaving the death of her sister. Unending war and horrors the likes of which she's never known await...
  • Comments: This is a great story. In this Tropers considered opinion that was formed after binging the heck out of RWBY and being a longtime fan of Warhammer RedRumSprinkles gives a great look at the brutality of the forty-first millennium's battle fields while staying true to Yang's characterization.

I, Jaune by Eric d’Orléans

  • Recommended by Ender Heisenberg
  • Crossover with Worm

  • Synopsis: A petty, self-obsessed kid who is suspiciously similar to Jaune Arc finds out that he is Jaune Arc. Armed only with having watched two-three~ seasons of RWBY, a history of substance abuse, and about two years experience with Information Technology in the United States Army, he and team B.A.S.S. (Blake, Arc, Schnee, & Shadow Person or something—I don’t know, I never learned their name) must survive as the world’s least competent B-team. But don’t worry, he’s done this once before, and it’s only ended in tragedy once!
  • Comments: Entertaining fresh and disastrous twists on Volume 1-2 staples. Interesting worldbuilding and characterization.

    XCOM Enemy Unknown 
XCOM: RWBY Within by DrAmishMD
  • Recommended by Ttran 2323, OldBen
  • Crossover with XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • Status: Complete, sequel currently ongoing
    • Sequel complete, with another sequel in progress
  • Synopsis: A strange anomaly causes the members of Team RWBY to find themselves in the midst of Earth's full-scale alien invasion with no way of returning to Remnant.
  • Comments: A beautifully written fanfic with amazing characterization and plot devices. Lovely take on what would happen if the Huntresses met XCOM and what would follow. Also combines elements from the Long War mod and is going to incorporate Remnant technology soon. Updates every Friday.
    • Seconding the recommendation. Fic is very well-written, characters from both sides are faithful to canon and greatly fleshed out, there are several impressive(if a bit controversial) plot twists, and there's a balance between action, drama and comedy. And thanks to well-done exposition, you don't even need to be XCOM fan to enjoy it - although it'll definitely help.
    • Warning: Contains, at least from the first handful of chapters, Jaune bashing, an absurdly trusting version of XCOM, game mechanics, and a removal of both the technology and powers from the RWBY cast in the name of 'balance', which, though it should bring the characters down to ordinary teenagers, brings them down to "trained soldier in combat armor with guns" within only a few days.
    • Thirded; though the first few chapters are a little slow and require a bit of So D, the story comes into its own with excellent characterization and combat, among other things.


Duel Academy's New Students by Brandocko
  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with: Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Ruby Rose and a few other new students join Duel Academy.
  • Comments: Ruby and others join at the same time Jaden does. Due to the many RWBY characters, the continuity is different. The author usually uses the real world version of cards whenever possible. Later, a few characters from Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V appear, but only the ones who use Fusion monsters. Since this fic takes place during GX, the author is adamant that Synchro, XYZ, etc monsters will not appear.

The Remnants of Earth by Rose_Bride

  • Recommended by Revival_Zero
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Crossover with: Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V
  • Synopsis: This world, its kingdoms, and its inhabitants are beacons of hope, lights standing in the middle of an unforgiving darkness, standing proud and representing humanity victory against the odds; amongst them civilization and culture flourished, people forgot that in the midst of all we are mere...remnants, leftovers from a long bygone world. Things are about to change, old forgotten stories take on a new meaning, long-standing traditions will crumble and fall, and with it light might finally flicker and die, when humanity's haven finally fall, will you have the courage to step forward? Welcome to Remnant.
  • Comments: So far composed by 4 stories, this is a Fusion Fic which by following an alternate version with the main cast of Yu-gi-Oh Arc V series into the Remnant universe, follows the adventures of team RYGY note , with only some canon side characters appearing inside it; this fic is highly recommended if you like strong characterization and worldbuilding along with a plot-driven story because despite a total change of the main cast, the author does a great job at merging them into the setting without them feeling out of place, while the first couple of chapters could feel a little awkward in pacing and at times dialogue, it grabs the ball during the Beacon Initiation and keeps it that way; it's worth nothing the author has a lot of extra information in her blog about weapons, semblances and edits that help visualize the characters into their new setting (links on the author's profile)

Cards of Remnant by TheMaster4444

  • Recommend by Angel Faux
  • Crossover with : Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • Now has a Tropes Page!
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: : Ruby Rose has wanted to be a Hunting Duelist all her life, to train her aura to manifest the monsters in her deck to fight the Grimm. So when she gets an invitation to join her sister at Beacon Duel Academy, she jumps at the chance. But old powers are stirring, and ancient summoning methods not seen in eons are about to clash, with the fate of Remnant in the balance.
  • Comments: A fusion of the world of Remnant and Duel Monsters, like his other works the author has managed to masterfully blend the setting of RWBY and Yu-Gi-Oh!. So far it’s been mostly Remnant with Duel Monsters, with only one character from the Yu-Gi-Oh! animes appearing. Time will tell if more appear. That being said, this is a must-have read for fans of Yu-Gi-Oh and RWBY

Multi Crossovers

RWBY Zero by TheMaster4444

  • Crossover with Fate/Zero and Fate/stay night
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Jaune Arc's mother is Saber/Arturia Pendragon, who found herself in Remnant after the events of Fate/Zero. She decides to visit her son and his friends during the Vytal Festival in Volume 3. Soon, her old secrets and past enemies come to light, and the game is changed forever.
  • Comments: Though it is more a RWBY story than anything, the author masterfully blends the lores of the respective series and manages to grant a whole new appreciation for both works and the characters in them. It's dark, emotional, and epic in its execution. This is a must-read for anyone who is a fan of RWBY and Fate/Zero.

The Red Knight of Remnant by Kaosreaper4208

  • Recommended by ultimomant
  • Crossover with Fate/stay night and Fate/Apocrypha
  • Status: Dormant (last updated December 2017)
  • Synopsis: To amuse himself, the alternate universe explorer Zelretch causes Mordred, the Knight of Treachery, to appear in Remnant and run into Jaune Arc, roughly six months before RWBY Vol 1 begins. Mordred seems to be human in that she doesn't need a prana source, but has her Noble Phantasms and other Servant abilities. With nothing better to do, Mordred decides to train Jaune and then attend Beacon with him.
  • Comments: With someone as tough as Mordred training him, Jaune becomes a lot more effective, doesn't have to fake his way into Beacon, and gets his Aura unlocked earlier, though he still has his Butt-Monkey moments. Fans are a bit divided because the author confirmed the official pairing will be Jaune / Mordred instead of Jaune / Pyrrha. The author is also adamant that Mordred will not get her Aura unlocked because he believes it would make her a Story-Breaker Power, and points out her Servant abilities make her powerful enough to contend with Grimm and Huntsmen and Huntresses anyway.

The Devil King of Remnant by RyuJudge6614

Awakening from a deep sleep, the founder of Gjallarhorn takes his new body and leaves the Earth to find a new world in need of peace and order. Will Remnant be prepared for the one named after the demon king?
  • Comments: Very well written, with an interesting plotline. The way some of the characters meet Agnika/Bael before the events of Volume 1 help shape who they are. It's humorous too. Sorry, I'm bad at writing stuff like this.

Against Despair

  • Recommended by: Rocket-Trash-Panda
  • Crossover with: BlazBlue, Persona 4, Under Night In-Birth
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The call to becoming a great Huntsman or Huntress is one filled with challenges, triumphs and sorrow. Whether they liked it or not, Team HRRN need to learn that lesson together.
  • Comments: Off the heels of BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, this story follows in its footsteps by depicting an alternate version of RWBY mythos by incorporating characters from the other three games into it. RWBY is not formed here, leaving Ruby as the only girl on a team featuring Yu Narukami, Hyde and Ragna the Blooodedge. While in its introduction stages thus far, the author does a great job in reintroducing these concepts into the RWBY-verse and making things flow well given the changes.

    • Volume II: Having returned from a massive adventure in the world of Remnant, Ben, Team RWBY, and the rest of their friends find themselves faced with new challenges at every turn on Earth. Be it villains old and new… or even things that they never imagined to be real. It's going to be a challenge unlike any they've seen before, but they're up for it. It's Hero Time!
  • Comments: Not every day you got RWBY isekai fanfic that started mid-Battle for Beacon. the actions are fantastic, some characters get better character development, and really love seeing both the Earth's heroes and villains introduce the Remnant characters to Earth's media and culture. Some characters are retconned, like turning Thunderhog from a humanoid boar alien to a normal human and a friend to Human!Exo-Skull before Dr. Animo turned them to human/animal hybrid using Faunus DNA, and the crossover pairings are adorable.
