RWBY Volume 3, Chapter 4: Lessons Learned | Rooster Teeth


Maybe red’s like roses Maybe it’s the pool of blood the innocents will lay in when in the end, you’ve failed to save them Their dying eyes are wide and white like snow And now they know the cost of trusting you’s obliteration Mirrors will shatter, crushed by the weight of the world The pillars collapse in shame There’ll be no rest There’ll be no love There’ll be no hero in the end who will rise above And when it ends, the good will crawl The shining light will sink in darkness Victory for hate incarnate Misery and pain for all When it falls [Port] Emerald and Mercury of Haven! [Port] Versus! [Port[ Coco and Yatsuhashi of Beacon! [Velvet] Good luck you two! [Coco] Hey… [Coco] Love the outfit, kid. [Emerald] I’ll try not to get blood on it. [Yatsuhashi] I can’t promise you’ll leave without a scratch. [Emerald] I won’t be the one bleeding. [Coco] Oh, I like her! [Port] Three, two, one, begin! ♪ [Music begins playing] ♪ [Crowd screaming]
♪ Welcome to the blood bath, jump into the tub ♪ ♪ Fist-fight, death-match, come and join the club ♪ ♪ Kick-start your face with a metal-clad boot ♪ ♪ You should give up now, your retaliation’s moot ♪ [Blake] Look out! ♪ I’ll run circles round ya, I can touch the sky ♪ ♪ I’m gonna make ya hurt and I’m gonna make you cry ♪ [Sun] He’s good!

[Coco] Damn! [Yatsuhashi?] Coco! [Coco] Watch out – she’s in the trees! *Loud buzzer* [Port] Oh, and with that final blow, Yatsuhashi is eliminated! [Coco] WHAT?! *Trembling, footsteps crunching* [Coco] Damn. *Crowd cheering* [Oobleck] And with an amazing upset, Emerald and Mercury are victorious! *Crowd booing* [Velvet] Coco…? *Crowd – mixed cheering and booing* [Weiss] You’re… leaving? [Winter] Yes. [Winter] I was merely needed to oversee the transport of additional units to Vale. Our last shippment was lost to an ambush. I believe you had a run-in with it’s cargo, actually. It’s fortunate those Paladins were still in the prototype stage. Otherwise, your team may not have fared so well. Weiss… You’ve done… …well… …out here on your own. You should be proud. I’ll be honest, it was quite amusing seeing father’s face the day you left for Beacon. [Weiss] I can’t wait to show him what I’ve learned. [Winter] Oh? And what do you think you’ve learned? [Weiss] What do you mean? I’m getting better and better with my glyphs. I’ve even started time dilation. [Winter] And what of your summoning? [Weiss] I… You know I can’t. [Winter] Don’t be ridiculous. Every Schnee has the ability to Summon. We have for generations. [Weiss] I’ve tried! It’s just… It’s the one thing I’m having trouble with! [Winter] We Schnees are unique. Unlike many, our Semblance is hereditary. But that doesn’t mean that it will come easily. Your Semblance is like a muscle. The more you practice with it, the stronger it will become. But if you only focus on one aspect of it… If you fail to test the limits of what you think is possible… Then you’ll never truly grow. [Ruby] You’ll never beat me old man! [Qrow] Heh, you’re nothin’ but talk, kid. [Yang] You can do it, Ruby! [Game Announcer] Soaring Ninja wins! [Game Announcer] Total annihilation! [Yang] Ouch… [Qrow] By the way. Don’t ever call me “old”. [Yang] My turn! [Game Announcer] New challenger approaches. [Qrow] Now, where was I? [Ruby] You were telling us about your last mission! [Qrow] Right, right. I come across a small village in the swamps west of Mistral. Right off the bat, I knew something wasn’t right. [Ruby] What were you doing there? [Qrow] I needed information. [Qrow] Tired from battling Grimm along the way, I decided to start my search at the town’s Inn. The place was crawling with low-lifes and thugs, even a few Huntsmen I could only assume had been hired by less than reputable people for less than respectable jobs. And that’s when it happened. [Yang] What happened? [Qrow] I was defeated… by the mere sight… of the Innkeeper’s skirt length! [Game Announcer] Soaring Ninja wins! [Game Announcer] Total annihilation! [Yang] You are the worst! *Qrow and Ruby laughing* [Qrow] Best two out of three? [Ruby] So, Uncle Qrow, did you get in trouble with Ozpin? [Qrow] Nah, me and Oz go way back. We’re cool. [Yang] *Scoff* Cool for an old guy. [Qrow] Not funny. [Ruby] Hey, so, what are you doing here anyway? I thought Dad said you’d be away on a mission for, like… ever. [Game Announcer] Ready! [Game Announcer] Fight! [Qrow] Well, a professional Huntsman like myself is expected to get results, as soon as possible. [Ruby] Yeah, I get that. We’re pretty much pros, too. [Qrow] Oh really? [Yang] Pssh, yeah! Read the news sometime! We totally saved Vale while you were gone. [Qrow] Funny, because I heard Vale suffered a Grimm attack after you almost managed to stop a train. [Game Announcer] Soaring Ninja wins! [Game Announcer] Total annihilation! [Qrow] But they don’t give out medals for “almost.” [Ruby] They do, and they’re called silver! [Yang] Well, we helped take down Roman Torchwick. He’s locked up in Ironwood’s ship and crime’s been down ever since. That’s basically a bounty mission. [Qrow] Sure, you may be acting like Huntresses, but you’re not thinking like one. You really think four girls and their friends could end all crime in a Kingdom? [Ruby] I mean, I did until you said that. [Qrow] Violence hasn’t dropped since Roman got nabbed. It’s stopped. Completely. No White Fang activity anywhere around the city. You cut off the head of a King Taijitu, but now the second head’s calling the shots. That’s what Ironwood can’t get through that thick, metal head of his. [Yang] You… know the General? [Qrow] Hey, I know everybody to some extent. Remember, you’re talking to a member of the coolest team to ever graduate Beacon! *sigh* Team STRQ (Stark). That’s when I met your parents. We were pretty well known back in the day. [Ruby] Well known for crummy fashion sense. [Qrow] Hey, we looked good! And I have a number of inappropriate stories that’ll back that up. But, I’ll save those for when you’re older. [Ruby] Ew, gross! [Qrow] Anyway, I’m too old to be hanging out with a bunch of kids. You’re gonna cramp my style. Look. Just remember that you’ve still got a long way to go. And don’t think for a second that graduating means you’re done. Every day out there is worth a week in this place. You two, you’re gonna go far. But only if you keep learning. If you never stop moving forward. [Winter] Excellent form! Now think to your fallen foes! The ones that force you to push yourself past who you were and become who you are now. Think of them, and watch as they come to your side. [Weiss] I can’t! [Winter] Stop doubting yourself! [Weiss] I’m trying! [Winter] If this is what you call trying, then you have no hope of winning the Tournament, let alone succeeding as a Huntress. Why don’t you just move back home? I’m sure father will give you a nice job as a receptionist. [Weiss] I don’t need his charity. [Winter] But you do need his money, don’t you? [Weiss] What?! How did you know about that?! [Winter] Lucky guess. I may have been in a similar situation when I joined the military. So what have you done this time? [Weiss] Well, that’s the thing. I’m really not sure. I went to pay for lunch the other day, but my card didn’t work. [Winter] How embarrassing. [Weiss] I know! [Weiss] Well, it was! Why would he cut me off like that?! [Winter] Perhaps so you’d stop avoiding him and call home. Emotions can grant you strength, but you must never let them overpower you. It sounds to me like you have two choices in front of you. You can either call him, beg for his money back and explain once more why you want to study at Beacon over Atlas. Or… You could continue to explore Remnant. Discovering more about the world, and honestly, more about yourself. It’s time for me to go. [Weiss] It was really good to see you, Winter. [Winter] Until next time, sister. Some believe in fairy stories and the ghosts that they can’t see I know that I could do so much if I could just believe in me [Phone vibrating]
Mirror mirror [Phone vibrating]
I’ll tell you something I think I might change it all…

  1. Ya know, its never explained how Cinder,Emerald,Mercury & Neo manged to get into Beacon is it? Like how did they get past Ozpin & Goodwitch? I feel like Ozpin would definitely notice that those 4 are not students he has seen at his school before. (Also, SPOILERS, the dude is older than literally the entire human and fanus race! He is a naturally suspicious person, he really should have seen this coming!)

  2. Great episode but can someone explain to me what exactly is happening at 7:51? Is his left arm just floating away from his body? I feel like I'm missing something

  3. Am I the only one hating the voice of this singer? I never heard someone complaining, so here I am: slow and emotional songs are fine but her fast and rock-like ones are horrible (my opinion)

  4. Yang:that’s basically a bounty mission
    Me:like the paper towel bounty?
    Flashback:BOUNtY THE QUICKER PICKER UPER
    Me:ah memory’s

  5. schnee is not written like that its written chenille because chenille in french means caterpillar and we have seen the caterpillar when weiss and winter were talking and when the caterpillar touched the little blade

  6. 9:55 OF COURSE!! For a great, low-rate he could get online, he went to the general to save some time.

  7. Spoiler

    In V5 Qrow explains his semblance and how it works. It can be useful in a fight but bad for his teammates. His semblance shows even here. Why do you think Yang and Ruby lost the video game

  8. Wait… Qrow says that he met Ruby and Yang’s parents at the Academy, but from his looks I’m assuming he’s their mom’s brother. So how does that make sense? Unless it’s explained further on. (This is my first time watching this.)

  9. I really do adore Coco she has a creative way of fighting and is rich as Flip and that suitcase is so fabulous and beautiful!! aaaaaa!!

  10. A really great touch at 12:15. Weiss is frustrated and tries to force the summon, but Winter doesn't even need to look to know Weiss failed the summon. Winter goes straight to Weiss to calm her down.

  11. I am surprised that Ruby was able to flip that much and not take any damage. And that Yang managed to push her out of the way and grab a controller flawlessly.

  12. If you pay attention to the lyrics of each song, you can see that they're basically describing the characters that are fighting

  13. Its amazing attention to detail when Qrow covers Raven's face in the photo with his thumb after Yang looks at it, realizing the pain the sight of her mom might bring her.

  14. Omg Coco Adel is a play on Coco Chanel. That's why she's so into fashion and if you're a fashion geek like me her cloth are heavily inspired by the brand! Oof I feel kinda bad it took me this long to realize it….

  15. Uhm, not to be nitpicky, but didnt the Schnee Generation only goes back to They Grandfather? The ones who are actuall Huntsmann?

  16. Qrow to Ruby: don't call me Old
    Yang: for an old guy
    Qrow: not funny
    Also Qrow: Anyway, I'm too old to be hanging out with a bunch of kids.

  17. Mercury best villain.

    Disclaimer: plz dont respond. Im just now watching this series. Dont want spoilers

  18. Hey, uh, are Winters eyes silver?

    I mean.. their not as blue as Weiss’s, Wintleys, and their father.. their more on the grey/silver side of blue

  19. Whenever Coco shoots from her minigun, I just want to scream:
    "WAAAAAAHHH!!!! UWAAAAAHHHH!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! CRY SOME MOOOOORE!!!!!!"
