The Top Ten

1 Yang Xiao Long Yang Xiao Long

She's not just cool. She's tragic, heartfelt, brave, funny, and I can't wait to see her in the 4th volume - Peculiar

Rooster Teeth are geniuses for making this character, 10/10 idea. One of the best characters they've made by far.

She is the cool character that every girl wants to be, and every guy likes.

Shes yang that's all I need to say

2 Qrow Branwen Qrow Branwen

A really awesome character. I hope we will get to know more on his background with his clan and sister. I feel like his semblance suits him and adds such a tragic air to his character but he's got such a great sense of humor about it all. Not only are his fighting skills top notch but his weapon is one of the coolest ever, a sword/gun/scythe! I love watching the fighting choreography with his battles. The way he fights, it's like his weapon is a part of him. - NerdBunny

How can you not love Qrow?

A pure Badass with an amazing vocal theme

He's Qrow, what else do you need?

3 Weiss Schnee Weiss Schnee

In my opinion Weiss has the most interesting and versatile semblance. With her glyphs she can do so many things not only for herself but she can use it on others too. Plus she can finally summon! I really can't wait to see her use this ability in battle. And I hope her time dilation glyph ability is explained further. She has grown so much in personality. She is more accepting and friendly than she was at first while still keeping her cocky attitude. But I absolutely despise her father! It's no wonder she starts out the series acting so snotty with the cold and emotionally detached upbringing she had! At least she has her sister and butler to rely on. - NerdBunny

She's my favorite!

How did Jaune beat Weiss? I thought Jaune was the fandoms punching bag?

Oh come on - Weiss?! Fourth?! Gotta admit, I'm kinda disappointed in you guys! Come on! 😜 My lil' ice princess is perf. 😊
Aww she's so cute... ❤️

4 Ruby Rose

She's hilarious, awesome, and adorable, and overall just a very likable character. - LarkwingFlight

A funny, optimistic girl who never gives up. When she loses her friends, her school and even her own sister she didn't stop moving forward. Even when a friend of her's died and another friend of her's died in front of her, she still went on a mission to find those enemies with her other friends. For a teenage girl, that's impressive and admirable. - RoseRedFlower

My personal favourit. She is just such a lighthearted and happy character! Plus her weapon in my oppinion is the most amazing out of all to them! - Immersed24

5 Jaune Arc Jaune Arc

The only character who actually grows as a character

I like how he screams. - OnyxDash

He the man

6 Pyrrha Nikos

I cried for 2 straight hours. Pyrrha is just awesome in every way.

If I was in the world of RWBY, I would want to be with Pyrrha.

She's intelligent, tough, beautiful, and encouraging. Nothing lightens my heart more when I see her encourage Jaune and believe in him. She will be missed! You will always be in my heart

7 Lie Ren Lie Ren A black-haired student at Beacon who dual wields machine pistols with attached blades, collectively called StormFlower. His Semblance allows him and his targets to avoid detection from Grimm. Ren lost his parents during a Grimm attack on Kuroyuri, the village he lived in.Vol. 4, Ch. 10 He and Nora are more.

I absolutely love his new look in season 4! In the words of Nora "He's basically a ninja." I love his fighting style very Hyuuga clan from Naruto in some ways when he wields his aura. I enjoyed learning more about his background in the new season and got to see another side to his usually calm demeanor. - NerdBunny

I Super love this character in RWBY Spoiler for end of season 4 LIE REN X NORA VALKRE!

Lie Ren = The Anime Man = Kawaii Desultory ☺

Me: Monty Oum is the REAL Lie Ren!
Lie Ren: Thank you!

RIP Monty. - OnyxDash

8 Penny

"i am combat ready" plus the fact she destroyed a dustjet by herself

9 Nora Valkyrie

How can Nora be this far down the list?! She's so crazy amazing! Her and Ren's past and relationship is so moving. I really hope we continue to learn more about these 2. She's a quirky, pancake loving, spitfire wielding a giant war hammer/grenade launcher! What's not to love? - NerdBunny

Nora is just so bubbly and sweet, but then she's a total powerhouse! I just LOVE that combination!

Nora is one of the few characters I might fear more than Yang. And whatever you do, DO NOT TRY TO ELECTROCUTE HER! I'm talking to you, Noland.

10 Blake Belladonna

One of the best characters in any YouTube show, ever.

Blake is so amazing and complex! I love her!

Blake and yang are by far the most well written and complex in the show. Plus she's badass and just looks good

Blake is amazing. She's the most beautiful and badass RWBY character to ever exist. - TwilightKitsune

The Contenders

11 Emerald Sustrai

Emerald, because of her witty and snarky personality. I really like her Illusion semblance and her backstory is realistic to me. Her design is really cool and I hope to see more of her.

12 Ozpin Ozpin

He is hot in ways of mystery, beauty, and power. I lovvveee him. I love his distinct uniqueness that I can't help but pair him with other favorite in the show (ahem-Q..Q-ah-row-ahem). His personality and looks are perfect in sync. Plus, I hadn't thought headmaster can have that much content of smexiness.

13 Roman Torchwick Roman Torchwick

Seriously? How can you not love him and Neo? They are the best

He was amazeing for comedy and also badass

14 Glynda Goodwitch

! Glynda is so perfect because she has a visually intriguing semblance to viewers and also doesn't have a limit to the awesomeness. At first glance, a lot of people categorize her semblance as "telekinesis', but it is definitely much more than that. You can't telekinetically (if that is a word) move a cloud and make ice dust rain from the cloud. It is magic, yes it is!

15 James Ironwood
16 Bartholomew Oobleck Bartholomew Oobleck
17 Sun Wukong Sun Wukong

Voiced by Michael Jones a.k.a. Rage Quitter - Mcgillacuddy

Those abs

18 Cinder Fall Cinder Fall A mysterious woman who possesses fire-based powers and uses a pair of blades that combine to form a bow that she uses to fire arrows.Vol. 2 She also fights with glass and has been noted to have fused Dust into some of her clothing. Cinder is a very cunning and secretive woman, with goals of gaining more.

Cinder is probably the only character with a decent backstory

God I love her!

19 Coco Adel

She only appeared in one episode so far and instantly became my favorite character of the series.

20 Neopolitan

Managed to beat Yang in a fair fight. Need I say more.

The cutest villain I've ever seen. - OnyxDash

Wonderful design I may say

She reminds me of my least favorit ice cream...
