I know RWBY is "americanime," thus debatably not actually anime, which usually downgrades its features to my honorable mentions, but Team JNPR has such a special place in my heart that I just can't! Cool fun fact: The members of Team JNPR allude to characters who are said to have disguised themselves as the opposite gender in their original stories, which I'll explain below. (source, RWBY Wiki: http://rwby.wikia.com/wiki/JNPR)
Jaune Arc Jaune is so adorable, I love him, even though he cheated to get into Beacon Academy! He and Ruby immediately bonded over their mutual awkwardness and became close friends. He is the leader of Team JNPR and uses a classic sword and retractable shield, handed down from his great-grandfather, who used it to fight in the Great War. He has grown so much throughout the course of RWBY so far, and is responsible for Team JNPR's ship names! (Arkos and Flower Power (Ren brings the flower, Nora brings the power)! Okay, so he meant them as attack names, but we all know they're ship names!). He is based on Jeanne d'Arc, who is known to have disguised herself as a man.
Nora Valkyrie Oh, Nora, what to say about Nora! She's a super fun, adorable, great big ball of energy! Her weapon, Magnhild, is a hammer that transforms into a grenade launcher, and her semblance is to channel electricity through her muscles. She is based on Thor, who disguised himself as the goddess Freyja to infiltrate the giant Þrymr's fortress and retrieve his hammer, Mjölnir.
Pyrrha Nikos Pyrrha was already famous by the time she entered Beacon, so it was refreshing when clueless Jaune didn't already know who she was, and she immediately took a liking to him and claimed him as her teammate in their first trial. An untouchable powerhouse, her weapons are a spear and shield, and her semblance is polarity. She's a super cool character, and I'm gonna stop before I start crying! Achilles, upon whom she is based, is said to have disguised himself as a red-haired girl, assuming the name Pyrrha upon doing so.
Lie Ren Ren and Nora are always together - but not together-together (they're totally together-together!). Ren is rather quiet and mello, especially when juxtaposed with Nora's rambunctious personality! (wonder what she did to prompt him to get that apron...) As such, we don't really know much about him, but he's an important part of Team JNPR! His weapon, named StormFlower, is a pair of automatic pistols with blades attached. Hua Mulan, upon whom Lie Ren may be based, disguised herself as a man, in order to serve in the army in place of her aging father.

Honorable Mentions

Thunder Legion/Thunder God Tribe - Fairy Tail

We had a rough start with this team, but since the Battle of Fairy Tail, I don't know about you, but Freed, Evergreen, Bixlow, and, last but not least, Laxus have done more than enough to earn their way into my good graces! They push each others buttons, are super entertaining, and are one of Fairy Tail's strongest teams!

Squad 7/Team Kakashi - Naruto

When I say Team Kakashi, I mean ALL of Team Kakashi, Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke, Kakashi, Yamato, and my boy Sai (yes, they are part of Team Kakashi too!)! They may have some difficulty holding it together, *glares at Sasuke* but I love them anyway! I don't really have much to say about them, actually; just patiently waiting for them to pull together cuz I know that would be/is going to be awesome (I don't actually know if it will ever happen, but I need it!)! Help, Please! I could have sworn a saw fanart forever ago that was like the traditional team portrait or the original team, but in each frame they dropped in a new member until they were all 6 squished in there, and it was adorable, but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere! If you know what I'm talking about and could point me to it, I would greatly appreciate it!

Straw Hat Pirates - One Piece

I'm just past 60 episodes (just left East Blue, for a more contextual frame of reference), so right now it's just Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, Sanji, and Nami. It's hard to believe they've only been nakama for such a short amount of time, the way they work together! Luffy sure has a good eye!
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined! Until next time! Please, feel free to share your thoughts/answers in the comments! I love discussion! Tagging some nakama! @AimeBolanos @alliepetey @assasingod @biancadanica98 @BlackDragon88 @CandyApple22 @choppabelle @DemonAngel522 @fairydemon15 @hanetama @hikaymm @HiwaRasul @HunnaBallue @JasmynAnchondo @JessicaFerrier @jevonlowery @KageTsuki040910 @kazam98 @KennyMcCormick @KiNg4LiFe @kouvarisb @KurosakiJess @LuffyNewman @midnitestar421 @MissStrawberry @msfancysunshine @NikkoNikole @NikolasSatterwh @nimm14 @otakukpoper @ovvhr @PASCUASIO @RazChaosRender @SAMURXAI @SimplyAwkward @SuperWolverBat @TakamiRen @tayhar18920 @Tylor619 @ZephyrBlaze
I really like Nora and Ren, they are my favorite characters and I ship them hard. "I'm queen of the castle, I'm queen of the castle"
@BlackDragon88 yes, the apron! "Nora, what did you do to him this time?"😂 Also can't wait to see what happens in volume 4!
@OtakuDemon10 nothing in rwby gets love TT~TT it's seems like because it came from america it's flagged as bad and shouldn't be watched by a "real" anime fan where's the Nakama love 😭😭😭
Oh what a treat it is to see team JNPR acknowledged 😻😻😻 by someone other than me....I think today is going to be awesome 😺😺😺
@tayhar18920 😆 I had a few others I was gonna include, but I went so all out on JNPR, I didn't have time or room! 😅 I was between Team 7 and Team 10 for Naruto, but I had to low key rant a little about how Sai and Yamato are always left out!
