Overview Gameplay

Blake Belladonna (Black Shadow Cat) is one of the main protagonists of the anime web series RWBY. She made her first video game appearance in RWBY Grimm Eclipse and makes her first fighting game appearance in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle as one of the 20 DLC characters.


A Huntress student at Beacon Academy and part of Team RWBY, she used to be part of the Faunus terrorist organization White Fang until she stepped out, realizing how inhumane their methods were. As Faunus are often prejudiced towards, she hides her cat ears under the ribbon on her head. Despite her efforts to start a new life and move away from her past, issues regarding Faunus prejudice still rile her up from time to time.

In combat, she's an agile fighter who wields Gambol Shroud, a mix of an automatic pistol and katana that she can turn into a sickle with a long ribbon to manipulate it from a distance. It also has a sharpened sheath that she wields alongside the first weapon. Her Shadow semblance lets her create shadow images of herself to distract and overwhelm her foes.
