Jaune/Pyrrha, known as Arkos, is a RWBY het pairing involving Jaune Arc and Pyrrha Nikos


Jaune and Pyrrha are both in Team JNPR, and are partners. Pyrrha develops a crush on Jaune, but Jaune notices because he is interested in Weiss Schnee and assumes that Pyrrha has other people interested in her.

Pyrrha kisses Jaune and reveals that she has feelings for him shortly before she dies fighting Cinder Fall.

Arkos is one of the most popular het ships in RWBY fandom. It is the most-tagged het RWBY pairing on AO3.

Fans were very hopeful that the ship would get together and become canon in early seasons. They were generally unhappy when Pyrrha finally confessed and then died in the same episode. Some feel that she was killed off for Jaune's manpain.

Tropes and Fanon

  • alive!au: An AU in which Pyrrha never died.
  • Alternate Canon: Usually in which Pyrrha confessed earlier, or Jaune realized how she felt or that he had feelings for her earlier.
