    I LOVE this girl!!! She loves who she is and what she does without a second thought. And she does it all in PINK!


    I Still miss the big baby-doll bow. (they didn't even relocate it in another form on her outfit)


    My favorite quote is STILL "I'm Queen of the Castle,.. I'm Queen of the Castle!" All sing-songy. Gets me snorting every time!


    And how does one get a rocket launcher to fire a heart pattern? Good stuff!


    My Favorite without question!

    Yes we can, and yeah, it was in the first season only.

    Nora is my absolute hero, she has really shown how strong she is this season. And by that I mean as Ren's emotional rock. When jaune objected to the team splitting up, it was her quick thinking that validated giving Ren an out. She knew he couldn't handle returning to that place, and offered up a survey of the landscape as a legitimate excuse. She was both quick-thinking and highly empathetic in that moment. She's so much more than just comic relief and I'm thrilled to see them fleshing out that aspect of her personality. I adore Nora!

    And I would hope RWBY fans see Nora as more than comic relief,.. I mean, this is NORA we're talking about here! Maybe some people (obviously not you) may mistake sharing her joy at living as funny,.. but we can see it's not script filler,.. It's her unbridled, unapologetic, full-throttle passion for being alive and being herself that has us laughing.


    She's a pure joy to watch,.. in good times AND bad. (Man I wanted her to smash those bullies so bad.)

    Wow. What I've read here is enlightening. I didn't realize Nora was as deep and useful to the story, but she really is!


    As for her "Love for life", I don't disagree, but my hunch is it's because she is in love with Ren, her hero since the beginning! No wonder they are so close, and why Ren puts up with her insanity without a single complaint. He's resigned to his fate of protecting his closest friend forever...and it's been so long he wouldn't have it any other way.


    And they are an absolutely adorable little lovers!

    In reply to MisCon Me neither. But you know what REALLY kicks my plums about Nora; ... It's the ABSOLUTE passion she puts behind every moment. Other characters, (including Lie) have a secondary self-check to most of their actions, in battle, OR day-in-the-life.


    Nora just goes,.. she breathes,.. she lives,.. even at the expense of 'social-clout'.


    I agree that Ren is a #u@%!n& HUGE factor with her happiness AND stability; ( I hope Merry animate a chapter when Nora loses her $#!t because Ren has lost 'plot-armor') BUT you can see in her screen-time that she is ALWAYS in-the-moment.


    So jokes & cannon aside; Nora is ALWAYS to be trusted, NEVER underestimated, and FOREVER aspired to.


    She's a pink pillar of sanity in a world of oppression.

    You just said "sanity" in description of Nora.... It's ok, we'll forgive you. Try maybe "joy"? or "laughter", or "bright, pink sunshine", but not sanity.  nora


    Seems Ren has a self-check on almost everything he does. Evidently, it's his semblance. And isn't "Lie" kinda a last name? Nora has been with him since childhood and calls him Ren and never Lie. It's like a reverse last name, where it comes first, right? Chinese/Japanese do that, right? I'm remembering Mulan, "Fa Mulan" (I think that's how you spell it).

    For those who watch Milo Murphy's Law does the character in that show Melissa look very similar to Nora for you guys? Seriously they look so similar that I have to wonder if the show's designer is a fan of RWBY or not.

    If RT doesn't know about the artist, then shame on them. Great artwork like this should not go unnoticed.

    Okay confession time: When Nora was first introduced, i did NOT expect to like her at all. Hyperactive characters tend to be hit and miss with me. Example: I wanted to throw Mako from Kill La Kill into a wood chipper after 2 episodes -_-


    But im thankful that i actually let it play out and I gotta say i can't imagine RWBY without her now.

    HunterBlaine, I know what you mean but with Weiss instead. Nora was dear to me from the get go. The one that surprised me was Weiss. And I'm the same as you,.. I cannot see RWBY without any of them. (even the fallen)
