Just cleaning up some tag vandalism, and adding some implications in the process.
Please let me know if I'm missing something.

Some issues to discuss:

  • is zwei a unique enough name to be used without a suffix? It just means "two" in german. Currently listed as zwei_(rwby).
alias zwei_(rwby) -> zwei
imply zwei -> rwby

See also: implication #29789.

alias neopolitan_(rwby) -> neopolitan
imply neopolitan -> rwby
  • salem is a mess. Should it be disambiguated?

RWBY character currently listed as salem_(rwby).

  • does jaune_arc need a *_(rwby) suffix? IMHO, the spelling is sufficiently different from the standard Jeanne d'Arc.
mass update jaune_arc -> jaune_arc_(rwby)
imply jaune_arc_(rwby) -> rwby

EDIT: The bulk update request #1340 (forum #316940) has been approved by @Rainbow_Dash.

Perhaps, yes (see Watsit’s comment below…)

Well, I thought it might’ve been an issue being a demonym and common adjective for various things, but then I remembered that’s spelled neapolitan. Neopolitan should probably be fine as a name, then, also considering that it’s not being used for anything else. neapolitan, on the other hand, looks like it may need some attention. At least four different characters (even though it isn’t in the character category), and two more posts where it’s apparently not a character, but… I’ve no clue what it’s being used for in those.

As an aside, I also found vanilla, which appears to be in desperate need of disambiguation as well.

  • salem is a mess. Should it be disambiguated?

RWBY character currently listed as salem_(rwby).

There are multiple different characters there under that tag. So, yeah.

  • does jaune_arc need a *_(rwby) suffix? IMHO, the spelling is sufficiently different from the standard Jeanne d'Arc.

IMO, that one sounds unique enough on its own to forget the suffix.

There is zwei_serigala, zwei_(rollerlane), zwei_(series), and zwei_soulbound, too. Along with a handful of other tags that start with zwei, so I'd say it should keep the suffix.

  • same issue with neopolitan. Currently listed as neopolitan_(rwby).

See also: implication #29789.

There is also neopolitan_bianchi_(lonewolf91234) (which should probably be changed to just neopolitan_bianchi) and neopolitan_(sonic_oc).

*facepalm* I was so busy reverting the damage that I forgot to check for other tags starting with zwei. Oops.
You are right.

Created wiki pages for both zwei and neopolitan. Disambiguation aliases should probably be in separate BURs / alias requests from this, though.
I'll sort salem out tomorrow.

The bulk update request #1343 is active.

create alias zwei (0) -> zwei_(disambiguation) (0)
create alias salem (0) -> salem_(disambiguation) (0)

Reason: Continuation of the RWBY Un-suffixing.
This BUR creates disambiguation pages for character tags that have multiple meanings.

EDIT: The bulk update request #1343 (forum #316974) has failed: Error: Alias would modify other aliases or implications through transitive relationships. (create alias neopolitan -> neopolitan_(disambiguation))
