"Make it RAIN!"
Team RAIN's CatchPhrase

Team RAIN is a webcomic created by Neopoliitan, based on the Rooster Teeth show RWBY. It follows the exploits of Haven Academy second-year students and painfully average huntsmen, Team RAIN, and runs parallel to the general events of RWBY while exploring a separate plot line.

The comic can be read on the author's tumblr and also has a wikia.

Team RAIN contains examples of:

  • Anything That Moves: Robin Lincoln, despite having mentioned a girlfriend, still shows a strong attraction towards characters she bumps into, even antagonists such as Bister, whom she states is 'pretty when she's angry' and Viola Braith, whose breasts she spends a good few panels ogling. This does not seem to bother Viola, who is overtly sexual in her own right, albeit of a more depraved variety.
  • Artificial Limbs: Tawny Bayardo has a clamp-like prosthetic left arm, but seems fairly well adjusted to these circumstances.

  • Combat Stilettos: Viola Braith wears these, as does Akane in her second outfit.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": How Bister feels about her first name.
  • Drop the Hammer: Irving's weapon is a massive hammer.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Bister, whose first name turns out to be Periwinkle. She tells Robin not to call her by it.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Otso Umber, Particularly following his transformation which places him at around twenty feet tall.
  • Eye Scream: Robin shoots out a half-grimm Otso's eyes with her bow.
  • Flat "What": Robin gives one of these after Professor Lionheart tells her Nyssa has dropped out of Haven Academy.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Robin (sanguine), Akane (melancholic), Irving (choleric), Nyssa (phlegmatic). Also Bister's crew; Bister (choleric), Rezar (melancholic), Tawny (sanguine) and Blanche (phlegmatic).

  • Gang of Bullies: Bister and her crew.
  • Good Parents: Braun and Marian Armona.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Irving and Nyssa.
  • Just Friends: Irving and Nyssa both seem to think the other thinks of them this way, and when Nyssa finally decides to confront Irving about it, things go bad.
  • Luminescent Blush - Marron Armona after she reunites with Robin, who kisses her mid-sentence.
  • Maniac Tongue: Viola Braith. Originally something of a quirk, but becomes more pronounced the more excited she becomes from messing with people.
  • Motherly Side Plait: Maera Noirette.
  • Named Weapons: Like RWBY itself, characters in the Team RAIN comic name their weapons.
  • Painful Transformation: Otso Umber undergoes one of these.
  • Reunion Kiss: Robin and Marron.
  • Shrinking Violet: Nyssa Noirette.
  • Siblings in Crime: Viola and Viorel Braith, probably their siblings as well.
  • The Glomp: Marron gives Robin one of these.
  • The VJ Day Kiss: Robin and Marron.
  • Tom Boy And Girly Girl: Robin and Akane.
  • We Will Meet Again: Bister leaves Team RAIN with one of these ominous statements.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Viorel Braith can switch between male and female forms at will. Their sibling, Viola, is unsure which gender Viorel was originally born as.
