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]

[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. 13:26
    That face though

  2. What's the song that plays while Mercury is fighting Yatsuhashi?

  3. Now if they are going to make Mercury fast he should be named quicksilver

  4. Just realized velvet is british

  5. 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!!

  6. gotta admit, Mercury and Qrow is hot

  7. qrow you pervert

  8. Qrow is the best adult in the series

  9. qrow=drunkoholic

  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. anyone else find it blatantly obvious that winter does things with the creatures she summons?

  12. 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.

  13. Tbh coco is pretty hot 😍😏

  14. EAT THE CROISSANTS

  15. Weiss: i CANT

    Winter: YEET

  16. Qrow: gives life lesson
    Winter: hits her sister

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

  18. 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.

  19. so this is where the quotes from Amity Arena come from!

  20. 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….

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

  22. 7:28 can I want qrow to be both my uncle and my husbando
    8:14 qrow is the best
    10:20 OwO

  23. 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.

  24. So
    Neo
    Qrow
    Roman
    Mercury
    That’s my list so far

  25. Has Weiss always had a scar, or did I skip the episode when she got it?

  26. I can't promise you'll leave without a scratch
    Best line ever

  27. Welcome to the comment section, where all we know how to do is quote things from the episode.

  28. Qrow has been in 2 episode and he's already my new favorite character in this show

  29. 12:55 BAI SISTERS

  30. And I got a few inappropriate stories about team STRK
    Ruby – Ew no,
    Me – lol wtf

  31. Mercury best villain.

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

  32. 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

  33. They made coco scared

  34. It took me till today to realize that crow covered Yang's mother

  35. 10:52 i started crying when i heard monty's mantra while wings was playing in the background

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

  37. Freeze at 1:00 it’s a hint towards the Blake Adam fight

  38. 3:23 Bad Manners Kick Course

  39. How was a big gun boi and a sword boi taken out

    I DECLARE A CHEATET

  40. Is Mercury’s fighting style influenced by Capoeira?

  41. they do and its called silver!

  42. 3:45 mercury asked for this lol

  43. After I watched the both versions of Mirror Mirror, the end of this episode changed its meaning for me.

  44. 2:20 This is the part you came back to the episode for. Thank me later.

  45. Mercury’s fighting style is just aggressive breakdancing.

  46. 11:24 (s)top of the morning to you laddies?

  47. Yatsuhasi, if you just used a normal sword, you would've actually got him.

  48. Who new brake dancing could be a weapon

  49. Well that is one way to mow

  50. COCO IS MY FAV CHARACTER I MEAN THAT INTEREST IN FASHION. I NOW STAN COCO

  51. 2:03 – 2:06 "Hey,love this outfit,kid" Coco Adel in RWBY Amity Arena
    i really like use her so much with Emerald and Gunship

  52. 2:09 "I can't promise you'll leave without a scratch." Yatsuhashi in RWBY Amity Arena

  53. Mercury & Emerald vs. Coco & Yatsuhashi is my personal favorite fight of the series. Mercury is art in motion, although I am a little sad that he is no longer nearly as well-choreographed as he is here. I mean, he turned Coco's weapon on her own teammate! That's incredible.

  54. I just noticed that Qrow glances at Yang and pulls the picture away at 10:23

  55. RWBY somehow makes coffee mugs, briefcases, and now breakdancing look cool.

  56. Why is there so many dislikes?

  57. 12:01 "How embarrassing" Winter in RWBY Amity Arena
    Her attack is very fast

  58. why does Yang sound like katzun?and why did i just notice that?

  59. Who was this innkeeper that had… "Defeated" Qrow

  60. Those of you who still think Yang beat Mercury fair and square just watch this fight again. Coco and Yatsu are on par to Team RWBY and Mercury absolutely toyed with both of them at once. If their plan hadn't been to attract the Grim rather than win, Yang wouldn't have much of a say.

  61. I think that Winter does care a lot about Weiss. She just has trouble showing it, since she never learned how to do it.

  62. Team STRQ I don’t feel so good

  63. Yatsuhashi lost because his sword wasn’t also a gun.

  64. Guess she really mowed the lawn

  65. Qrow: Don't call me old.
    A few moments later
    Qrow: Anyway, I'm too old to be hanging out with a bunch of kids.

  66. I swear I could hear Scorpion yell "Get Over Here"

  67. One of the best intros ever!

  68. Volume 3

    Weiss: "It was really good to see you."

    Winter: "Until next time, sister."

    Volume 7

    Winter: "YoU sToLe An AtLaS aIrShIp?!?!?!"

  69. I like how Mercury hit the big guy and barely moved. Then he tosses him across the arena.

  70. 7:06
    I WANNA BALEWOLF

  71. Where did volume 6 and 7 go wrong

  72. Mercury reminds me of Jin kazama from tekken.

  73. 10:18 You should make a special episode for that

  74. Crime doesn't stand a chance against 4 girls and their friends!

    Go Friendship!

  75. Stop doubting yourself!

    Thanks, I’m cured.

  76. She broke my five hundred dollar sunglasses.

  77. 2:20
    Miss vanjie
    Miss vaaannnjjiie

  78. Notitie she slaps her sister

  79. This series is good at showing differences in skill.

  80. Qrow sounded really genuine when he said "skirt length". Glad to know he's enjoying some parts of his life

  81. Why was everyone booing Em and Merc??

  82. “Your girlfriends purse wont help you win this duel”

  83. I still stick by my theory that Weiss' grandfather came across the relic of creation in his journeys and now the power is passed down through his line.

  84. since at least now, every one should know, rubys mom is still alive, im wondering what she is up to

  85. qrow is a gamer ??!!??!

  86. I love how Qrow's copy of the group photo has cup stains on it. It really shows how he's let himself go in terms of drink.

  87. That intro gave me chills.

  88. 9:16
    Its funny but I also realize that ruby has SILVER eyes

  89. Idk the ending song was so touching I wet my eyes when singing along 😭 Weiss, how can you be so similar and familiar to ppl like me?

  90. 3:25 you’re girlfriend’s purse won’t help you win this duel

  91. The lyrics actually math up with the scenes really well. If you go back to the CFVY fight and listen to the lyrics and watch the scene together it’s really weird
