Yang is a member of team RWBY. She was the enforcer, the muscle, often using her brute strength and Ember Celica gauntlets to punch her way through problems. A major thrill seeker, Yang possibly was one of the candidates to be a strong member of the team, with good reason too.
Yang's combat skills revolve around punches and blasts with her gauntlets. Her Semblance also adds to it, taking kinetic blows from attacks she's taken and adding them to her own striking power. But that isnt even the limit to what she can do. What you don't want to do… is piss her off. Take off even one strand of her hair or mess with her bike, its your funeral. After the battle in Vytal, Yang lost an arm to Adam Taurus. She was given a mechanical one by Tails, but her confidence in battle was shot. When she attempted to fight in Lyoko alone, she soon came face to face with a robot named Bass. Surprisingly, the two of them were equally matched in both power, speed and strength. This rivalry was what helped Yang regain her confidence in battle by having someone to try and surpass.
