      (This thread is dedicated to gathering as much info on RWBY's eastern influences as possible)


      I've been trying for a long time to gather a list of anime and such eastern media that has been shown to influence RWBY. The thing is: it's very hard. Like one of it's influences, RWBY takes from a lot from previous works. Unlike that show, RWBY's pool is so big and varied it's hard to analyze. So if you feel a certain show or game or manga in RWBY, put it down below:


      List:

      Soul Eater 
      Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
      Naruto
      Bleach

      Final Fantasy ( A mixture between VII and VIII)

      Bright World (Summer Rose Theme) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

      (Softly)

      This world is so cold and unforgiving

      How could anyone hope to survive?

      Striking at us without relenting

      Why do we endure?

      -

      I try and fight with everything I can

      But I still fall to the ground.

      How do those of whom I am a fan

      Deal with such great grief?

      -

      This world is not a bright world

      It is so dark and cruel

      Is it right for me to try and change that?

      Or am I just a big fool?

      -

      (Slowly but steadly growing in strength)

      -

      This world may seem overwhelming to me

      But this is not true for everyone

      I have met people who have allowed me to see

      Just how strong we can become.

      -

      I try to fight with everything I have

      To grow as stronger as they are

      I must take this long and arduous path

      So I can stand by their side!

      -

      This world is not a bright world

      That cannot be more true

      But I will fight against it

      So that the righteous shall rule!

      -

      (Now strong and firm)

      -

      This world doesn't seem so bad now

      Why was I so scared before?

      I was once forced to kneel and bow

      But I shall do so no longer!

      -

      I will fight and fight until the very end

      Taking down these monsters and beasts

      Against these horrors I shall fend

      Because I am afraid no more!

      -

      This world is not a bright world

      But that won't be true for long

      Now I shall change it for the better S

      tarting with this very song.

      -

      I will make this into a bright new world!

      Voice 1:You seemed so reliable and strong
      But I couldn't be more wrong.

      When faced with a problem you cannot slice

      You just turn tail and run off.

      -

      Voice 2: Hmph, you dare to call me out weakling?

      I fight while you crouch and start shrieking.

      I am strong and the strong rule over all

      So you better get in line, little girl.

      -

      Voice 1: If that is your way, why are you here?

      Why do learn if only use it for fear?

      Voice 2: Why do you ask such stupid questions?

      Are you just that dumb, shorty?

      -

      Voice 1: Oh you think you're so powerful

      With all that arrogance and gull

      Voice 2: I do not think, I am strong

      Stronger than you could ever hope to become.

      -

      Voice 1&2: Oh how I loathe the day I meet you

      How I hate the moment we meet eye to eye

      And the day we part will be grand, that's true

      Until then, I'm stuck with you.

      -

      Voice 1: If you think you're so better than me, just leave!

      We'd all have more time to live and breathe.

      You are so reckless, always jumping into battle

      Just how many times have we saved your ass?

      -

      Voice 2: And just how many times have I carried this team?

      I wonder if the answer you can gleam.

      We have only gotten this for because of me. S

      o you'd better learn to give me respect

      -

      Voice 1; Such pride, how does your brother put up with you?
      How does he not jump into the deep blue?

      Voice 2: He knows that I am essential for survival

      But I'd like to know the same about you?

      -

      Voice 1: And how Tai managed to love you is beyond me

      Whatever he sees in you I do not see

      Voice 2: Oh. Is that what this is all about pipsqueak?

      Are you seriously jealous over that pathetic blonde?

      -

      Voice 1&2: When the day comes that I leave you, I will embrace it!

      Because I won't have to see you ever again!

      And you know what, I won't miss you one bit!

      Until then, I'm stuck with you.

      -

      Voice 1: Goodbye Raven, now get out of my sight.

      Never again do I want to suffer your blight.

      Voice 2: Agreed, I wish you ill luck as well

      And I hope you learn that strength reign supreme.

      -

      Voice 1&2: Guess I'm not stuck with you anymore.

      Good.

      You've taught me so much over the years
      Even how to conquer my fears!

      So, even though you say otherwise
      You helped me become who I am!

      But now's not the time
      I must leave before you are all reduced to ash and sand
      And I cannot bear to commit again that crime.

      -

      Someday, you will understand I had a reason 

      For doing what I will do

      And I regret it, that is true.

      -

      Go ahead and try to leave, see how well that works!

      Strength

      You think you can stand up to me 
      The best warrior Remnant has ever seen?
      Armed with nothing but a peashooter
      This isn't a fight, it's slaughter.

      -

      Doesn't matter to me either way
      who or what I am may flay
      Be it Grimm or man or beast
      To me, every battle's a feast

      -

      So draw your weapon and prepare to die
      I better not see you run or cry
      You died the minute you challenged my strength
      Of course, that you know now huh?

      My strength rains supreme across the land
      I can reduce boulders into mere sand
      So the thought you can defeat me is laughable
      And nothing short of stupid and pitiable.

      -

      I have made the strongest men drop to their knees
      For mercy, they beg and they plead
      Of course I deny them, why shouldn't I?
      They should have been smarter and sly

      -

      Now draw your weapon, be it sword or knife
      You're about to go on a trip to the afterlife.
      Oh, don't be so pathetic, accept your demise
      You were the one who got in my strength, remember?

      -

      Now,as you lie, bloody and pale on the ground
      Know you weren't worth a pound
      You were weak and useless, a waste of space
      Just like your pathetic mace

      -

      Your foolhardiness has cost you everything
      And of this battle, no one will ever sing
      Take solace in the fact you fell to the best
      That no on else could ever pass this test

      -

      I'll be on my leave now, no point in staying
      Little man, there's no point in praying
      There's nothing awaiting you beyond the darkness
      So suck it up, this was your fault alone

      -

      Your fault for not seeing my strength.

      This thread is dedicated to celebrating the father of Ruby Rose and Yang Xiao Long, Taiyang Xiao Long. Here you can post about how much you like the character, any theories revolving around him and any good fan work you have of him.


      I'll start this off:

      I love Taiyang Xiao Long because he fits two of most respected aspects of a character: Being a good parent and taking a hit from life.


      The thing is: being a good parent is hard. I say this from a weird sort of experience by hearing how much difficulty my mother had in raising me and the delicate balancing act she has to pull in raising me. This, alongside the fact that 80% of parents are either dumb, embarrassing, abusive or evil in fiction, has given me a great appreciation for good parents in fiction. Taiyang, despite losing both his lovers in the span of a presidential term (guess where I got that from), supports his kids and gives them all the love (be it soft or tough) he can give. And then there's the fact that his love for his kids just radiates from the man. He must take a lot of pride in that job of his.


      And then there's his beatings. Let's be honest, Taiyang is one of the saddest characters in RWBY. He's got Ruby's problems about the world crashing around him, Yang's problems of being abandoned and depression and Qrow's problems of looking after his kids. And then you take into account how easily a Huntsman can die on the job, how many times he's nearly lost his kids,the pain he's seen them go through, the helplessness and sheer terror he must feel about his kids constantly almost dying and you start to wonder how he gets out of bed in the morning. He's lost his lovers, both of whom were also close teammates, his daughters TWICE with the last time leaving one in a coma and the other without an arm, Ruby and Qrow ditched him and now he's staying behind to look after Yang through her depression, something he can't break her out of, while Ruby and Qrow could be dead somewhere. And yet, despite all that, he is the best damn parent  in RWBY.


      Here's a link to a Taiyang Fanfic of mine:https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12281328/1/Cowardly-Lion


      So, now it's your turn!

      Sharp words are all you seem to say.

      What is next, “It's been a
      bear-rible day?”

      Voice 2: Hey, that's not half bad. I'll take that.

      I hope you don't mind, of you may?

      Voice 1: Don't you dare!

      Voice 2: Make me!

      Voice 1 & 2: Aha ha ha ha ha!

      Voice 1&2: Though we may trade blows!
      And some that are rather low!
      From each other we will never be far!
      Friends till the end, that's. What. We. A-

      Voice 1: Wait, aren't we brothers?


      Voice 2: Damn it, you're ruining the song!


      Voice 1: I'm just saying we're a bit more than friends.
