Go To

RWBY: Crimson Sands and RWBY: Crimson Waters are a pair of RWBY roleplays run by Projeck 37 and PrivateNomad on the Bay12 forums, taking place in the same setting, in Vacuo and Mistral respectively. They both focus around a set of two teams of novice Huntsmen and Huntresses, learning their way through life as a Hunter.

Both roleplays contain examples of:

Crimson Sands contains examples of:

  • Combat Pragmatist: Argent and Melodia; it's more explicitly shown with Melodia, who manages to keep Reynard pinned for the whole fight under her legs until she lets up and allows him to hit himself.
  • Doppelgänger Spin: Reynard against Melodia. It works twice. Consecutively.
  • Fantastic Foxes: Reynard is a fox Faunus with illusion abilities.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Melodia and Reynard.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Melodia, who uses a yoyo to fight, in coordination with her legs.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Melodia's Semblance involves the manipulation of sound. One of its main uses is to create incredibly damaging sounds out of her Battle Cry.

  • Master of Illusion: Reynard's Semblance allows him to create Mirages.
  • The Stoic: Reynard, who doesn't even flinch when Melodia forces him to jam the pommel of his own sword into his groin.
  • Razor Floss: Violet's weapon. The wires are attached to her gloves. They can also turn into dual pistols or dual knives.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Sienna's Semblance allows her to essentially cause localized explosions.
  • Time Master: Violet, who can temporarily stop time using her Semblance.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Reynard pulls this on Melodia during their duel, using his illusion to make it seem as if his Aura was fully depleted to make her back off.
    • Subverted: Melodia would have been forced to back off as her own Aura had been depleted, and Reynard's Aura ran out the moment afterwards.


Crimson Waters contains examples of:

  • BFG: Goldy's ranged weapon, which is a light machine gun.
    • Rose's weapon is described as the baby of a revolver rifle and anti-tank rifle. While it doesn't spew out lead like Goldy's gun, it certainly fits into this trope.
  • Double Entendre: Employed by Rose whenever she can get away with it. Her teammates do not enjoy them as much as she does, however.
  • Fantastic Racism: One of the teachers is openly racist against Faunus students.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Goldy's main method of fighting, due to her using dust tattoos and having a semblance that makes dust effects even more potent in her hands.
  • Small Girl, Big Gun: Rose's weapon is about as long as she is and probably weighs just as much.
  • Warrior Monk: Jet, who comes from a community of ascetics who trained her in martial arts.
