RWBY Volume 3, Chapter 9: PvP | Rooster Teeth

August 11, 2019

Maybe its red like roses Maybe it’s the pool of blood The innocents will lay in When in the end you fail 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 shinning light will sink in darkness Victory for hate incarnate Misery and pain for all When it falls [Oobleck]: Alright. It is now time to begin the randomization process for our next fight. [Port]: It looks like our first contender is… Penny Polendina from Atlas! And her opponent will be… Pyrrha Nikos from Beacon! [Penny]: Sal-u-tations Pyrrha Nikos! It’s an honor to finally meet you. [Penny]: This is going to be so much fun! [Ruby]: Mercury… what are you doing? You were hurt! Why…?! Uh… What’s going on? [Ruby]: Fine. If you’re not going to tell me… [Oobleck]: Fighters, are you ready? *muffled sounds of the crowd cheering* [Oobleck]: Three! Two! One! [Oobleck]: Begin! [Mercury]: Show time. [Mercury]: Let’s just keep this between us friends. [Port]: My word! What a tremendous display by Miss Polendina! [Nora]: Whooo! Yeah! Gooooo Pyrrha! *Metal creaking* *Penny gasps* *Metal crinkling* *Metal screeching and electricity crackling * *Crowd muttering in shock and horror* [Port]: No! *Sound of machinery powering down* *Grimm snarling* [Ruby]: Penny… [Oobleck]: Broadcast, what are you doing? Kill the feed! [Broadcast Operator]: Something’s wrong! We don’t have control over the cameras! We can’t even stop the broadcast! [Oobleck]: What? How is that possible? [Cinder]: This is not a tragedy. This was not an accident. This is what happens when you hand over your trust. Your safety. Your children. To men who claim to be our guardians. But are, in reality… nothing more than men. Our Academies’ headmasters wield more power than most armies and one was audacious enough to control both. They cling to this power in the name of peace, and yet, what do we have we here? One nation’s attempt at a synthetic army, mercilessly torn apart by another’s star pupil. What need would Atlas have for a soldier disguised as an innocent little girl? I don’t think the Grimm can tell the difference. And what, I ask you, is Ozpin teaching his students? First a dismemberment, now this? Huntsmen and Huntresses should carry themselves with honor and mercy. Yet I have witnessed neither. [Cinder]: Perhaps Ozpin as though defeating Atlas in the Tournament would help people forget his colossal failure to protect Vale when the Grimm invaded it’s streets. *Zwei barks* Or perhaps, this was his message to the tyrannical dictator that has occupied an unsuspecting Kingdom with armed forces. Honestly? I haven’t the slightest clue as to who is right and who is wrong. But I know that the existence of peace is fragile. And the leaders of our Kingdoms conduct their business with iron gloves. [Cinder]: As someone who hails from Mistral, I can assure you; the situation there is…. …equally undesirable. Our Kingdoms are at the brink of war. Yet we, the citizens, are left in the dark. *Grimm growling* [Cinder]: So I ask you… when the first shots are fired… Who do you think you can trust? *Screens errupt into static* [Oobleck]: The feeds are all jammed! We can’t get a message out! [Port]: Will somebody tell me what in the world is happening?! *Warning siren blares* [Emergency Announcer]: Alert. Incoming Grimm attack. Threat level: Nine. Please seek shelter in a calm and orderly manner. [Ironwood]: Ladies and gentlemen, please! There is no need for panic. *Nevermore screeches* [Sun]: A Nevermore?! [Coco]: How’d it get past the Kingdom’s defenses? [Ren]: It wasn’t alone. [Qrow]: Oz! [Ozpin]: Get to the city! [Qrow]: But- [Ozpin]: NOW! *Nevermore screeching, Grimm growling* [Ironwood]: Ozpin, the girl… I – I can explain! [Ozpin]: You brought your army to my Kingdom, James. [Ozpin]: Use it. [Atlas Ship Captain]: Dammit! This is Blue Four. Blue’s Two and Three, fall into defensive position! [Blue Three]: Roger! Blue Three, in position! [Atlas Ship Captain]: Blue Two, what’s your status? *over radio* Blue Two, come in! Someone answer me, dammit! *Door hissing* [Roman]: Well… it’s about time. [Atlas Ship Captain]: We’re hit! What’s goi- *Explosion* [Roman]: Woohoo-hahahaha! Oh, it is good to be back! [Adam]: Bring them to their knees! *Ursa growls* *Ursa roars, fading away into silence*

  1. Poladina is responsible for her own death….why be "hero" and participate in fight when you know you're made up of metal not human flesh…

  2. cabose: gains control of a giant ship "oooohhhhh buttons"

    cabose: shoots down own ships

    cabose: "not my fault, tucker did it"

  3. The moment when pyrrha and jaune were talking and she uses her polarity to crush him against the wall was soul crushing

    And it really played into her own fear at the beginning of this fight when she looks at her hands and thats the moment you know

    What mercery said was actually going to happen

    Penmy was dead before the battle evem started and im still crying tbh

  4. Sargent: There is no need for panic.
    Nevermore: I'm gonna get ya
    People: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  5. If you listen to the full version of the opening song of this season you'll hear "this was not a tragedy it's not an accident" and then if you hear Cinder's speech, it also starts off with it and fits with ideals mentioned in the song

  6. So help me if volume 7 doesn’t involve a rebuilt Penny with built in arm cannons I’m going to jump off a bridge.

  7. Ok, I put two and two together…..
    I already knew.

  8. This is one of my favourite episodes. Although one of my favourite characters dies, the character I hate the most get to suffer. A true sacrifice.

  9. You guys do know that penny is not dead. She is just deactivated, and could probably come back if the writers decide to use her in another story arc.

  10. Now that I know how to spell her name,I can say that Pyrrha can be really cute sometimes but also really scary when you c how she can fight

  11. When are the failures they call teachers in this show going to be called out for being outright idiots who see nothing that happens in front of them nor do they ever listen or believe their students it seems.

  12. *Before fight starts*
    *See's comments about Penny becoming quarters*
    Me: I think I might cry ;-;

    As soon as I saw Penny I'm like yup I like her


    Ruby's reaction AUDJZISFJAMEIFMS

  13. There are only three things I can hear forever:
    1. Sonic Vocal Songs
    2. LA Kings 2014 Goal Horn in Stanley Cup Final, Game 5, 2OT
    3. The voice actors from RWBY.

  14. Wires that can become tangled on the user and dismember.
    Well, it was only a matter of time until someone defected one of them hard enough I guess.
    Also, Cinder asking the real questions here.

  15. I wonder if the beige clothing on Ruby's season 4 outfit is Penny's dress? It's like how jaune is wearing pyrrah's red cloth

  16. I love how Jaune and Pyrrha both immediately know that something’s wrong when the fight first starts. GREAT JOB! YOU FOUND ONE OF THE MOST SAD DEATHS I’VE EVER SEEN!

  17. Has anyone noticed neo’s umbrella has many holes in it.
    Foreshadowing it’s used for more purposes than a normal umbrella.
