“ I don't wanna be "the bee's knees". I don't wanna be any kind of "knees"! I just wanna be a normal girl, with normal knees. ”
- — Ruby Rose
Ruby Rose is a fifteen-year old student of Beacon Academy, and the main protagonist of the animated series RWBY. Prior to the team's disbandment at the end of RWBY Volume 3, Ruby was the leader of Team RWBY, a group consisting of her, her half-sister, an heiress to the Schnee Dust Company, and a former member of the White Fang extremist group.
Ruby is the wielder of a High-Calibur Sniper-Scythe known as the Crescent Rose, which she built herself during her studies at Signal Academy. While very proficient in combat with the weapon, without it she becomes clumsy and near-useless. Her Semblance was given the name of "Speed", as it allows her to travel at high speeds, allowing her to appear as if able to teleport. She is also one of the few Humans in the world of Remnant to possess silver eyes, and thus the special abilities that come with them.

Ruby Rose is the main protagonist of the Rose Warriors series of games and the leader of the eponymous group. Her Corruptid is also a recurring mini-boss, appearing in both Rose Warriors and its remake, and as a normal enemy character in Rose Warriors: Vengeance.
- Like most other characters from RWBY, Ruby's name follows the in-universe established "Color Naming Rule". A ruby is a gemstone of a pink or red colour, while a rose is a flower typically depicted as red.
