Jaune Arc


Beacon Academy

JNPR (pronounced "Juniper") is a team in the world of RWBY. In "Players and Pieces," the team had its first fight together against a Death Stalker.

Later in the same episode, the team was officially formed. During initiation, the team brought back the White Rook pieces.


Jaune Arc is the leader of Team "JNPR."
Nora Valkyrie is a member of Team "JNPR."
Pyrrha Nikos is a member of Team "JNPR."
Lie Ren is a member of Team "JNPR."


  • 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.
  • In 2014, Monty Oum discovered that he is allergic to juniper.
