Top Ten Coolest RWBY Characters


The Top Ten

1 Blake Belladonna

Why the Blake hate!?

Blake has the saddest backstory among the main characters. What she really wants is to be treated as an equal because of respect, not fear. That's why she's my favourite. - TwilightKitsune

2 Yang Xiao Long Yang Xiao Long Yang Xiao Long is one of the main protagonists of RWBY. She is the half-sister of Ruby Rose and the former partner of Blake Belladonna. Her parents are Taiyang Xiao Long and Raven Branwen. Her signature weapon is a pair of twin shotgun gauntlets named Ember Celica. She alludes to the fairy tale character more.

Seriously. She can basically turn Super Saiyan and has a theme song that isn't "family friendly".

3 Ruby Rose

Well that's just what you think and you kinda are just about to begin a war because I was just describing how I think of her and you are just disagreeing with everything I say, which I figured would happen In season one her voice was normal but it changed so much. And Rwby chibi (I know its not canon but still) is not necessary and also unfunny and a way not to create Mary Sue's are to not make them the hero of the story why do they have to be? I also disagree with everything you say. But I appreciate the fact that you said that you didn't mean to start a war because on another site someone called me a troll just cause I didn't agree with them which caused me to cry for lots of hours that my nose bleed slightly.

Though I was just describing what I thought and it seems like your trying to fight with me and telling me that I can't describe my own thoughts.

My favorite

Also her sliver eyes make her seem like the chosen one due to how rare they are, everyone else is strong because they trained but for her it's because she has sliver eyes. And her voice sounded normal in volume one and it was perfectly fine and fitted her pretty well but then they ruined it and it's annoyingly noticeable plus a lot of people have been irritated by that. Everyone else in their trailers barely got blood anywhere but she got a ton of bloody bodies on the ground which made me feel bad for the beowolves even though they are supposed to be the bad guys also there are characters who are very gentle in anime like Madoka and Wadanohara who even fights while still looking like they could be needing protection.

I honestly don't think Ruby is that bad. I don't mean to accidently start a flame war, but many things that people say are false.
For one thing, the squeaky voice is just a part of her personality, as well as her slightly childish nature. You can't blame her for having a slightly OP weapon, and she herself admitted that she went a little overboard designing the Crescent Rose. Also, she doesn't know how to control her eyes, and anytime she's used them have been at times or emotional distress.
In RWBY Chibi, almost everyone is a little more annoying than their canon counterpart, even characters like either Nora or Yang (no offense meant). I do not believe that Ruby is a Mary Sue, and I am not supporting her just because she is the main protagonist.

4 Weiss Schnee Weiss Schnee Weiss Schnee is a former student of Beacon Academy and one of the main protagonists of RWBY. Her weapon of choice is a Multi Action Dust Rapier (MADR) named Myrtenaster. more.

Weiss has had a very... complicated life. She has been through so much and has really grown tremendously as a character. Bravo!

11 General James Ironwood General James Ironwood
12 Neopolitan
13 Zwei Zwei
14 Coco Adel
15 Roman Torchwick Roman Torchwick

A love-to-hate and a hate-to-love type character, Roman Torchwick is a true scoundrel but an oh so interesting character. Much like his inspiration, (the main character from A Clockwork Orange) he is not a good guy, but he still has an important part to play.

16 Glynda Goodwitch Glynda Goodwitch
17 Mercury Black Mercury Black Mercury Black is an antagonist in RWBY. He is an associate of Cinder Fall and partner of Emerald Sustrai.
18 Nora Valkyrie Nora Valkyrie
