I am not sure why I have not seen or thought about this before, but the name Ruby`s weapon, Crescent Rose, is actually quite brilliant. Not only it`s a nod to the weapons color, but the Crescent also probably is a nod the scythe`s alternative mode:
The shape is different than a normal scythe, and resembles a lot more to the “shape” of crescent moon, also known as the sickle moon.
As I read more about this, there was also an another interesting thing: “It is used as the astrological symbol for the Moon, and hence as the alchemical symbol for Silver.” You know, Ruby`s silver eyes and all that jazz. o_O
Like, the amount of symbolism and foreshadowing that has been put into this alone is absolutely stunning and I love it. Like, I now have an urgent need to go to the RWBY wikia and read a bunch theories and symbolism tied into this series. Like, i have been watching this show since the Red trailer and only now have started to notice all of this stuff….
