  • The filler episodes such as "The Badge and The Burden", "The Badge and The Burden, Pt.2", "Jaunedice", "Jaunedice, Pt.2", "Forever Fall" and "Forever Fall, Pt.2" are removed completely in the manga.
  • The gag characters like RWBY Rex do not appear in the main storyline of the manga.
  • The background characters were shadow silhouettes in Volume 1 of the show, but in the manga, they are no longer shadow silhouettes and they have their own appearances.
  • Most of the characters' personalities have some minor changes in the manga. For an example, Ruby is somber and introspective when she first arrived in Beacon Academy, Weiss is less selfish and slightly nicer to her friends, but she is still distrustful of Faunus and Penny becomes desperate to find new friends.
