"I'm a thrill-seeker. I want to travel around the world and get wrapped up in as many crazy adventures as I can. And if I help people along the way, then that's even better. It's a win-win, y'know?"
In RWBY, Yang's Semblance allows her to tank the damage she receives and then use it to amplify the effectiveness of her attacks. This alone is fairly powerful, however once she has taken enough damage she enters a empowered state, marked by literal flames in her hair. In this empowered state, she becomes incredibly fast, and powerful. It is likened by her father, Taiyang, to a temper tantrum. Though it may be similar to a childish tantrum, the effectiveness of her Semblance is not to be underestimated as she has used it to take down significantly larger and more powerful foes, such as RWBY-universe top of the line piloted mecha.
Her Semblance makes an appearance in Cross Tag Battle as a passive trait. When her health drops to the "Danger!!" point, she enters her empowered state, complete with flaming hair. While in this state, many of Yang's moves become buffed significantly. Most notably, all of Yang's punch normals and some of her special moves gain an extra hit(s). While these hits are still affected by damage scaling, these hits do not add on any additional damage scaling to Yang's combos. This gives Yang some of the highest damage normals out of the entire roster.
The following moves gain buffs while Yang is in Semblance:
- 5A: Gains a larger hitbox and an additional hit.
- 5AA: Gains a larger horizontal hitbox and an additional hit.
