The Top Ten
Gotta say, Weiss has come a long way since the first season, some of the best character development this show has had to offer in my opinion. She went from being a cranky mean girl to a caring and more understanding person. She's elegant and feminine while at the same time a kickass and won't take any bs. She's had a rough life behind closed doors but has still managed to overcome it and stay strong! Plus her semblance is pretty cool if you ask me. Her strengths and weaknesses are well executed and do you know anyone else who can fight that well in a dress and heels? - jserket
Best girl. Change my mind. - Legatus
The best, just the best
I just love how they turned the snooty mean girl cliche on its head and I love her reason for becoming a huntress to restore her family's honour not to mention how graceful she is-she's bad ass but never loses her grace!V 17 Comments
Honestly, she's the character I care the most about. Which made the events of the volume 3 so sad for me, really...
She is strong, physically but more importantly mentally. Her semblance is perfect for increasing the tension during fights, and represents her overall strength at overcoming hardships. And I particularly enjoy the fact that her fighting style (boxing) could have easily been given to one of the boy characters. But no, they went for one of the 4 main female characters, and they managed to make her tough (cow-boy and biker look, puns, wearing shorts), sunny (smile, puns, yellow color) and feminine (long blonde hair, sexy clothes). This makes for an amazing and complex character. And her relationship with Blake is the main reason I come back every year for the next volume : might just be the "parner" thing going on, but I really see Bumblebee moments as romantic ones...
I don't know why people ship bumblebee. Its as if relationships can't be platonic these days. Yang and Blake obviously care for each other but I see more in a sisterly way than a romantic. Also Yang didn't care that Blake was dancing with Sun or when she blushed when he waves at her.
Bumblebee is probably not going to happen and the writers are clearly just ship-baiting people to lure in more viewers.
So many similarities with me (long blonde hair, fighting abilities, puns and humour, loves her little sister, with strong determination...). She is the character I care the most about.
In Volume 1, Yang didn't have a lot to do, so that generally didn't make me feel inclined to love her as much as I do now. However, after Volume 3 ended, she swiftly took Pyrrha's place of being my favorite RWBY character. Also, Bumblebee for life!V 25 Comments
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
Best character, hands down. - LordDovahkiin
He's only been here since Volume 3 and he's my favorite. - MilesRS777
This became everyone's favorite character within 5 minutes!V 14 Comments
My sister says I am just like her
You know, for a series called RWBY, which is literally named after the main character and the team she leads, she never really got that much development unlike the other members of Team RWBY. And that's really sad because I really do like Ruby's character, but it would be nice to see her change as a character. Yes, we do notice her motives as a leader since the time gap between Volumes 3 & 4, but I want to see her evolve as a character. Give me a reason to why she's the main character of the series! Give me a reason to why she should be my absolute favorite character! Also, Lindsay Jones, as much as I enjoy your performance as Roobs, at least make her sound a bit older. Why did she sound like she was 17 in Volume 1, and she currently sounds like she's 10. Shouldn't that have been the other way around?
Nonetheless, she's easily my least favorite of Team RWBY, and I really do like her character. So please, Miles & Kerry, give Ruby a reason to why she's the main character of the ...more
Why is weiss better than her...
How is Ruby not in the Top Three at least? Ruby is the main character and her team is basically her name, and she is very important to the series as a whole. Please move her higher on the list!V 8 Comments
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 ☺
Come on she is the best
Wise and strong, and yet, her kindness towards others is what I admire the most.
Pyrrha samaV 8 Comments
He is the most loyal out of all of them I believe. He is the one getting the most development. I think it was kind of charming how he tried to woo Weiss even with all the rejections showing his devotion to the heart, if I was him I would have given up on the first "no" and moved on to the next dance partner. He even told us he was interested in her because of how beautiful her voice was and played the guitar pretty well in front of her door, pretty sure that anyone that is this sweet would have had more options* like nikos*. He also is pretty relatable to just about all normal human being like us at the beginning. Even when still in mourning he went with ruby along side nora and ren to fight cinder and shows quite a bit of different emotions through out the show. All in all he is our lovable goofball turning fierce huntsman.
Hands down probably the most adorable, handsome, and cutest RWBY character.
He is very lovable ad I love that no matter what he wants to get stronger not for the power but to not be a burden and protect his friends.
I love Jaune so much! He is the guy most of us in real life probably relate to the most considering he is a normal dude in a super powered world. Plus he's a stand up guy who is growing stronger because he wants to be a hero. He is becoming a better fighter and more capable leader with each passing volume! Add in the fact that he is super nice, friendly, and hilarious and you have a superb character!V 8 Comments
I've never watched this series, so I don't know many of the characters, but isn't Blake one of the four main antagonists? Shouldn't she be higher or is her character development not as good as the others? I'm just curious, I'm in the process of watching the show actually, although I'm only up to episode 3 season 1 so far, I've heard it's got really good character development, not to mention the ship between Blake and Yang, so I have high expectations.
I wish she was higher up, I identify with her the most and I love her motives and how she asserts herself and opens up with everyone. She made some big mistakes but her motives were good and she has grown a lot.
The best cat
Blake is easily the best out of all the given top 10, although Jaune is a close secondV 15 Comments
I honestly just really love her personality
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.V 6 Comments
Best bad guy.
Best. Clothes. Ever...
Also amazing cane.
The best waifu, fight me
HE IS BEST VILLAIN WITH A LOT OF GOOD MOMENTSV 3 Comments
My favorite character! - gamegame
Neo vs cinder is so hype
The queen has returned and she's out for blood.
Why is she not higher up on the listV 14 Comments
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.
"i am combat ready" plus the fact she destroyed a dustjet by herself
Pyrrha turned Penny into quarters. - LordDovahkiin
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.

They managed to give him a defined personality, and a reason for doing what he does within a few episodes. And sadly, those are things RWBY usually struggles with a lot. Also, one of the funniest characters in the main series. Oobleck is the best character, fight me.
He ha my vote dude sure he is evil kinda maybe, maybe an anti hero but I like him I also like to ship some girls with him like Blake obviously Weiss,Ruby and yang probably if this was my list I put him number one
He isn’t just so cool and cute!
! 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!
Mercury is obnoxious
I gotta say he may be a villan character but he's pretty awesome. I want the good guys to win but he kinda makes me root for the baddies. His moves in that tournament fight were just jaw dropping! He took control of that fight and kicked ass! All basically using his metal legs the whole time to get the advantage over team CFVY. Plus his jokey attitude and snark won me over before I even saw him fight. I enjoy him and Emerald's interactions. Just an all around badass. - NerdBunny
Cool dude...face that says 'you like jazz? '
How does Merc not even have an entry? He has an interesting design and concept, potential for an awesome backstory (From what we've seen so far it could end up being pretty good), and the most entertaining fighting style in the show.V 1 Comment
Ironwood... Hmm... OH YES! - LordDovahkiin
He's the guy who has the world record on bowser's big bean burrito
Yasssdss I ship him x yang. He is my fave character, and I have definitely seen him before
"Spaghetti"V 1 Comment
He needs to be higher
Oscar is a well written character with a kind heart and a very cute design
Come on Oscar is adorable get him higher
GET MY SMOL CINNAMON ROLL SON HIGHER THAN #24!
Such a badass. Shame she only had a few apperences in the show
Dude just look at her
She only appeared in one episode so far and instantly became my favorite character of the series.
She's sassy, sarcastic, fashionable and tough. But most importantly she's AWESOME!
I really really really really want to know why she hates humanity I have a feeling I'm gonna like her back story.
She is best mom. Her design is also badass.
I love all the villains from volumes 1-3 but Cinder by far is my favourite villain and also my favourite character in the show.
The only character to actually get anything done in this show.
I would marry her
Cinder is probably the only character with a decent backstoryV 1 Comment
He's to cute
Just like weiss, but better, stronger, and more beautiful.
He got a shot at qrow. Maybe killing him? don't know for sure yet. It hasn't come out yet. But still. QROW. TYRIAN POISONED QROW. And, his personality is like a metal insane psychopath. Need I say more?
Her redemption may have been a bit rushed, but I absolutely love her.
Although Roman and Winter are pretty great as well.
Church, I'm your best friend, that's what I am to you!
He is so awesome
From Camp Camp
She's great and has an amazing song.
WHY IS SHE ON THIS LIST AS A COTNERDER! WHYYY
Just get this bastard higher then Neon
He's like Generator Rex! Except wit blue hair and doesn't have hands that can literally change into every weapon in the world. Still a pretty cool character though. - OnyxDash
