Best RWBY Ships/Couples

What are your favourite RWBY ships and couples? Vote below ~ ! :3
The Top Ten
1 Blake Belladonna x Sun Wukong

Sun needs an upgrade...I have an idea for one, but I can't do anything about it because I'm not rooster teeth. (But if we're being serious, Sun has been in the first 5 volumes, plus the first episode of volume 6, every other character has gotten an upgrade...even Penny...who was dead for 4 of those volumes)

I am a full Black-Sun supporter. Sorry Bumblebee. I just feel like they have the dynamics okay? Don't judge me. And besides, it above bumblebee, so yay? But I also kind of ship Checkmate, so theres that...

I'm in love with this and I honestly think this is more likely than BMBLY (I think rooster teeth is ship baiting us with BMBLY) And Blake and Sun just make more sense story-wise...please don't hate me

2 Ruby Rose x Weiss Schnee

I think the only thing holding this back from being cannon is that Ruby is written as some shade of asexual. It's a common thing to happen to main characters in adventure stories, mostly to avoid plot complications or upsetting fans.

That being said they are absolutely adorable together, clearly lean on each other for support, and both have confided in each other more than any other pair. It's really terrible that just when Ruby could have started getting interested in romance (since she was only 15 at the start), she got tragedy after tragedy piled on instead. By the start of volume 9 she's just so beaten down and depressed I don't think she could recognize any romantic feelings she may have.

3 Pyrrha Nikos x Jaune Arc

The ship that sunk before leaving the dockyard. Pyrrha was my favorite character up through volume 3, and never deserved the end she got. She should have gotten what she wanted.

And yeah, Jaune's alright too I guess.

They are adorable together... the statue scene with what was OBVIOUSLY Pyrrha's mom or sister was heartbreaking...and so was her death. And can I just say, the fanart for this is gorgeous.

This needs to be higher than Ruby x Scarlett! Scarlett's only in one or two episodes!
EDIT: Just read the manga and Scarlett has been confirmed as gay so...

4 Lie Ren x Nora Valkyrie

YAY! Rennora is so cute! You can find so many good fanfics on the internet, and this is actually a very close second to my shipping of Lancaster.

Obviously, they're the best ship! Volume 4 made my love for this couple even stronger!

They've been together since they were small. They both obviously love each other.

5 Coco x Velvet
6 Qrow Branwen x Summer Rose

I really like the idea of Qrow being Ruby's dad. Summer and Qrow wouls have been a cute couple and it just makes sense.

Why choose between Hummingbird and Snowbird, when you can have both?

It would make sense. why would summer after Raven ran away sleep with Tai its just like what

7 Blake Belladonna x Yang Xiao Long

Bumbleby has been built up since the Red Trailer, ever since we got the lyric "Black the beast descends from shadows, yellow beauty burns gold," comparing them to Beauty and the Beast. Since then, they've gone through so much development; while it can be read as platonic in V1, Yang clearly flirted with Blake in V2, and in V3, Adam targets Yang because he recognizes her as "someone Blake loves." Not "cares about," "loves." Sure, you can argue that she would've reacted the same way if he maimed Ruby or Weiss, but stories are written the way they are for a reason, and this plot point tied Blake and Yang's narratives irrevocably.

It's also really telling that in V6, Adam has the line "What does she even see in you?! " Given that he's Blake's ex, this is pretty heavily romantic-coded. At the end of the volume, the scene where they're holding hands in an airship parallels the scene where Ren and Nora were made a couple. As of the third episode of V7, Yang is caught staring at Blake, and she blushes when she asks her if she likes her new haircut. This isn't even mentioning how their eyes match each other's auras; you can't argue that it's a coincidence because RWBY is literally a show about color theory.

Also, they're based on yin and yang - the bits of each other's color in their eyes are based on the black dot in the white half and vice versa, yin is described as being associated with the moon and yang as the sun (Blake is heavily associated with the night and Yang Xiao Long literally translates to "little sun dragon"), and Yang's name is literally yang.

In conclusion: Bumbleby has plenty of development, you guys are just straight.

8 Sun Wukong x Neptune Vasilias

Sea monkey it'll be alright it might stay away from bumblebee and uhh...oh I forgot about Neptune and Weiss ship name well by the way they might be a great couple.

Sun just looks gay, okay? Like, I know he was into Blake and all, but, like, he looks seriously gay.

9 Yang x Weiss

They are adorable. If you are a homo, okay, I get it, but seriously, they are cute and you can't argue with me about that. Sure, Yang is with Blake, but just think-If they get separated together in V.9, they might become cannon. I AM a Lesbian, and I have a girlfriend, and shes like Yang (Looks, attitude, same interest, ect.). Again, I'm sorry if you don't approve of this ship but Its clearly the best ship on here. So please vote.

It's so cute. In the red trailer, I tells how White is Cold, and then It says, Yellow Beauty BURNS Gold. Practically announcing that Yang is the Flame to Weiss.

10 Ruby x Oscar

I can literally just see ruby (in Volume 9) pulling out something of Oscar's from one of her pouches, like a green cloth or something, and then she starts crying. It would probably get the viewers emotional and feel more connected to the two.

They are an amazing and I will fight you if you say otherwise. I am one of those people that look forward to cute awkward and dorky people trying to have a normal conversation, but clearly fail.

My Honest Opinion-Its Kinda Cute. And it is confirmed, Oscar does have a crush on ruby, but I don't know how ruby feels. I think that Oscar just makes it awkward and really cute. Ii like it.

The Contenders
11 Neptune Vasilias x Weiss Schnee

I think they could be good for each other... and if Neptune finally gets a girlfriend, he might not be so flirty! ( that a pro or a con)

We need Neptune to not be chasing every girl this could really help him

Neptune needs to settle on a girl so he doesn't flirt with every girl in existence! (Seriously! He would probably flirt with SALEM if given the chance!)

12 Weiss Schnee x Jaune Arc

This is honestly my OTP for this show. Their relationship ship shows the growth each character has gone through.

Things Rooster Teeth forgot: #76 Jaune's crush on Weiss.

They've grown a lot together, I uh there pretty cute.

13 Nora x Pancakes

Clearly Nora's side piece. And Ren is an enabler and voyeur.

14 Yang Xiao Long x Sage Ayana

I don't know why I love it, but I do!

I think more people would get behind this if they interacted at least a little bit

15 Taiyang x Summer Rose

It's hard to say since we've never even heard Summer talk, but with the other option being Raven it's not even close. And no one has every said a bad word about her, so she's probably pretty great.

16 Qrow Branwen x Winter Schnee

Opposites attract. Except not really because on a fundamental level they are both soldiers and rebels. Qrow from his tribe and Winter from her family.

They have opposite coping methods, but only rub each other the wrong way because they see themselves in each other. Qrow sees Winter as a pre-burnout version of himself who needs to learn to relax, and Winter sees the wasted potential she's afraid of becoming.

I don't know why but I love the thought of uncle and older sister being together, and then niece and younger sister being together. It would be even funnier if Qrow turned out to be Ruby's dad. Kinda creepy I guess, but funny.

17 Roman Torchwick x Neopolitan

I just finished reading Roman Holiday...AND I'm SO SAD!
Neo and Romans backstory is so complex and sweet, I cried when roman thought Neo had betrayed him. But At the end, when Neo kissed Roman, he turned RED. I love this ship, and especially because their both based off of italian cultures. Which makes sense to me why their ship name is Gelato, basically italian icecream, but better.

I see it and I like it. This should be at least top 10. I don't know why it isn't. Their clearly cannon, although when he was swallowed by a grimm that was sad for me. But he is still alive so that makes me feel much better!

18 Jaune Arc x Ruby Rose


Okay kidding, but I do support the shipping of Lancaster (Jaune and Ruby). Jaune and Ruby, as teammates during Vol. 4, care about each other in a way of mutual respect and friendship. However, what if it was something more than that?

I don't care about all the "indirect ship" comments-- I ship it because of how they are both there for each other, and just how they look at each other. You don't have to ship it, but that's why I do.

Why the hell is this below Ruby x Scarlett?
Scarlett is gay.
Ruby and Scarlett are never seen together. AT ALL.

Anyways, Lancaster is just too good.

19 Coco x Fox
20 Ruby Rose x Scarlett David

Yeah Scarlett is gay by the way they confirmed it in rwby manga

21 Taiyang x Raven Branwen
22 Velvet x Fox
23 Mercury Black x Emerald Sustrai

I won't lie, Merc and Emerald are adorable together. He may annoy her sometimes but they are really the real Romeo and Juliet

I think that Roosterteeth has been shipping this as much as we did. Who knows what volume 8 awaits!

These two are so cute the way that mercury stood up for her as well I think they are gonna happen

24 Zwei x Chicken

Get the chicken Zwei! Get the chicken!

25 Ruby x Penny
