Trivia

  • The members of Team JNPR are based on characters who are said to have disguised themselves as the opposite gender in their original stories.[1]
  • JNPR (Juniper berries, blue) is a possible allusion to Rooster Teeth's other series, Red vs. Blue, when compared to their rival Team RWBY (Ruby, red gemstone).
    • Juniper bushes are also known to turn bright yellow, which helps to explain its connection to leader Jaune (as with Ruby to RWBY, Cardin to CRDL, and Coco to CFVY).
  • Team JNPR's members' fighting styles are based on archetypical warriors from a different culture: Jaune's is Frankish/Norman, Pyrrha's is Greco-Roman, Ren's is East Asian, and Nora's is Nordic.
  • Team JNPR is the only group to be made up of names that each lends itself phonetically to the team name: Jaune, No(ra), Pyrrha or Pyr(rha), Ren.
