Team BRNZ (pronounced "Bronze") was a team from Shade Academy of Vacuo. The team consisted of Brawnz Ni, Roy Stallion, Nolan Porfirio and May Zedong. Team BRNZ fought Team JNPR during a match of the Vytal Festival combat tournament.
Three of their members were brawlers, specializing in close-quarters battle; the remaining member was a sniper who supported her teammates from long-range.
- In "Round One", May was seen walking around the fairground prior to the fight.
- Team BRNZ were written in RWBY: Before the Dawn as a foil to Team JNPR, where only one member of BRNZ survived as opposed to JNPR having lost only one member in the fall of Beacon.
