    If you look back at the Black trailer, at the end Adam took a massive blast from the robot and simply used the energy from the blast to "one-hit KO" the bot. In the process however time seemed to slow down while he was being hit, the same happens here when Yang came at him. Damn, if only she'd known

    ...This isn't really the direction I saw Adam going in. Frankly, this whole "dear" and "my love" thing kinda threw me off; there wasn't really anything that I can remember that implied that he and Blake were anything but really close friends.


    Ah, well. Who knows. Maybe I'm just dense, or maybe this is gonna be really interesting. Just... Hope they'll keep the "my love" lines to a minimum. It sounds bizarre coming from Adam.

      Well Blake is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Maybe Adam is supposed to be the Beast. We haven't really seen much of him to be able to say we "know" him. He's been on screen for like a total of 30 seconds lol

    • flameroran77

      That's true, we don't know him that well. But from the short periods of time we've seen him, we have gotten at least a rough idea of the kind of person he is. Adam strikes me as a guy that doesn't waste time with words; he's blunt, to the point, and just generally kind of angry. It feels like they're kind of trying to shove some emotions into him that weren't there before. Kind of ham-fisted.

      You are aware that calling her "dear" and "my love" don't nessasarly = an item. They could of just been close ._.

      @Funesueillo I don't know about you but I don't call my friends "my love" all the time (or at all for that matter). Only time I would is if it was some scenario where it was a sarcastic joke, and I don't really think that applies here.

      @nicus9 yeah, but you're a privileged modern kid living an average life~


      Adam was a fanus who got a rather bad hate for humans, and Blake's betrayal seems to have made him worse.


      They be called crazy for a reason. Using your average logic does nothing!

    Honestly, more than anything, I think what I like is Roman actually coming off as a big bad again.


    He feels like he's going Joker mode.


    Jokers are always my favorite villains (The Joker, Kefka, Doflamingo, Flowey, etc). Ya know, chaotic evil types that have some smarts, humor, and cunning.


    Ya know, true evil, probably gonna backstab the other bad guys and gain power, then the most pure type will clash with the most corrupted.

    I really do believe Jaune is going to get the powers. The RWBY creators said that Jaune has a much bigger part than we see, and he is based off a female warrior, Joan of Arc. I know the powers can be only transferred to girls but the way they are trying to give it to Pyrrha unnatural but stuffing it in her, so it could be unnaturally transferred to Jaune. He followed Pyrrha into the basement and Cinder saw them going in. So I think Cinder is going to fight them and ether Pyrrha is hurt so he jumps in the power capsule, or while fighting he falls in the capsule. Honestly, the scene I want to see the most is THE ADAM AND BLAKE FIGHT. OMG I CAN'T WAIT

      Not entirely sure about jaune getting the powers but the fact that he has like 7 sisters is definitely fishy. That uby v Neo tho?

      been calling it for a while. They announced a 'rule' that precluded men from being a recipient, then continued on about how they invented a device to "take it and cram it into something else". The obvious thing they never considered was 'cramming' it inside a guy with a lack of testicular fortitude. It would also be funny, something this entire volume has largely lacked since Blake and the bowl of fishnoodles.

  • doraemon94

    well you don't need to kill of a character to ensure that there is no Deus Ex Machina win, i mean realistically even if they managed to complete the transfer the chances of Pyrrha curb stomping the Grimm is tiny, as in they don't quite no how the artificially transferred powers work, it could be something that keeps big P out of the game for two seasons or it could be something else, and even if big P successfully completes the transfer, it's too late anyway, thousands of people are dead, Vale as a kingdom has a very high chance of disappearing, hunters are now called into severe question, Beacon students are now Pariahs.


    and besides RWBY and JNPR are the two a teams of the show, killing them now is very distasteful IMHO.....if you guys want blood to pour it should be like the Book 7 Harry Potter scenario, where JK Rowling warned of massive character deaths as all the characters have already maxed out their character development, RWBY, JNPR and the other guys, not even close, we don't much about Ironwood aside from him being "Mr Military man" Ozpin Glynda and Qrow are unknowns as well...and the same goes for the main cast, they got so much to prove and grow.


    BTW Ozpin is the elephant in the room, given how Cinder has thus far avoided Ozpin in a head to head fight it would seem he is a powerhouse....unless the man's a fraud and is nothing more than a poor Dumbledore imitation. At any rate this is why i think the characters shouldn't die or be under the threat of death.....yet.

    I'm honestly really hoping for a main character death. They've set up all this peril, if someone gets saved due to some deus ex machina, I'm gonna be so upset.

    • AceofHeartsu

      1 year ago

      If it were my way? Yang. I just really don't like her, I feel like there is very little suspense and peril with her, because if a fight is going poorly, her plot armor kicks on and she goes rage mode and kills everything, but thematically? I dunno, I could see Pyrrha, it'd also fit with her name, even if our protag squad manages to take back Vale, it'd be a Pyrrhic victory.


    • Zourin FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I think most of us will be disappointed if we have yet another Deus Ex Machina like we, quite literally, have had for the past two years (Penny and Ironwoods' fleet), while the main protagonists seem to be more field-seated spectators than participants in the resolution


      If Pyrrha completes the transfer and wins everything for everyone, I'll call that a third literal Deus Ex Machina.

    People are gonna die!


    Scenario 1: Pyrrha accepts fall maiden powers, confronts Cinder. Because she is super evil and has a big ambition she WILL become super powerful. In this scenario she will have to kill Pyrrha.


    Scenario 2: Pyrrha refuses or is about to accept, but Cinder finds them before she could make a choice and she finishes off the fall maiden and gets full power


    Scenario 3: Fall maiden somehow gets better, confronts Cinder, kicks her ass, clean up the Grimm, thedayissavedthankstothepowerfuffgirls, the end

      ..... Scenario 3 is my favourite

    • Zourin FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      1 year ago

      My three scenarios:


      1. Ozpin stays in the basement, fends off Cinder. Pyrrha goes through and completes the transfer, either going nuts or winning everything for everyone (for a third upstaging of RWBY in a finale)


      2. Ozpin leaves the basement, leaving the transfer to pyrrha and jaune. Cinder comes in, fight ensues, all bets are off who wins.


      3. Ozpin leaves the basement, leaving the transfer to pyrrha and jaune. Juane gets knocked into the machine and becomes the fall maiden. Cinder laughs her ass off and leaves knowing how easy it would be to go back at any time and take him out.


      Hidden ending 4: In the commotion, Zwei becomes the fall maiden. Awesomeness ensues.

      Scenario 3 is ok i guess...but What really needs to happen is Jaunne saving Pyrrha, then making her laugh first try again, and last somehow getting the powers from the machine and weirdly ending up with a girl consciousness combining somehow with his own. Then Jaunne and Pyrrha end up going on ridiculous/hilarious first dates with a the maiden as 3rd wheel. And the maiden will just argue with Jaunne in his head all the time. Giving him the best dialogue since he's the best character. TIDUS FOREVER

  • hammerheadz

    I don't think Pyrrha is gonna do the thing. I think Jaune will talk her out of it and autumn the fall maiden has a real voice actor, I forgot her name she play Spartan vale in halo 5 and played fetch from infamous second son. So I think autumn will return there is no reason to hire a voice actor for one scene with mocap and say one line

    To all those who say Neo is going to beat Ruby because she beat Yang.

    Remember that Yang was exhausted from fighting Grimm BEFORE SHE FOUGHT NEO!!

    • Gamerguy0012 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      More than that, Yang is a power player while Neo seems to favor counter-attacks; Ruby makes use of speed making the matchup more evenly balanced.

    • Protheus01

      1 year ago

      I still think Weiss is a better match ever since that episode.

    • konaustin

      1 year ago

      That's true, but Neo is probably older and is likely a lot more experienced and probably won't hesitate to straight up brutalize Ruby or just try to kill her. She's a lot more flexible as far as combat style goes, has that (so far) everything proof parasol, and we still don't know what her power is.
      Ruby has speed and range, but I give this win to Neo on the grounds of skill, agility, and the unknown power factor.

    • kell7777

    Welp... pray for Ruby


    My predictions: Ruby may win against Neo by a small margin (Neo is incredibly fast).... and lose against Roman.


    Blake may lose against Adam by a small margin, but is beaten by Sun or someone else who comes in to help.


    Neo and Adam, despite not being shown off as much, are still some strong-ass characters.


    However, Blake, Ruby and Neo are undoubtedly the fastest fighters in the show so far.

    • Funesueillo FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I'd say ruby accomplishes the goal (stopping the robot mind control) before getting knocked off, but saved by ironwood (fight leaving her with things to think about)

      Who? Adam? He was shown briefly in the last episode of Volume 2, and in more detail in Volume 3, Chapter 8. The connection to Blake was made there, for all who haven't watched the trailers.


      And who else was there? Neo was introduced in V2, Roman in V1, and I can't imagine you're talking about Ruby, Pyrrha or Ozpin...

  • Volendrung

    Adam loves/loved? Blake. That could have been weird. 5 years ago a new leader stood up. She was 12 at that time. He was how old? 89? I think the Vale Police should have stepped in. Or at least Child Care. That was just wrong...


    Anyways. Ruby againt Neo. Neo wins. Probably not even worth the discussion.

    But to wipe out the imminent 'but but but':
    - Neo has WAY more experience.

    - She's WAY more agile

    - She can fight without a weapon

    - She took down Yang, and smiled doing it.

    - Roman needs a win.. give the guy a break

    - Ruby will probably just try and lick her, Neo's ICECREAM for crying out loud. And Ruby's just a kid. So she'll lick her. NOT THE KIND ADULT LICKING, you perv's!

    - Ruby's alone.. Neo has Roman and Grimm and all that other technical mambojambo around.


    So.. Neo 1 - Ruby 0


    (And Pyrrha has a choice to make? Looks like the choice's aready been made for her. Lazy bastard Oz: "We are not doing anything...")

    • DavidtheWavid FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      We don't know that Adam was the violent leader. He is A violent leader, yes, but we don't quite know how high up he was at the time. Doesn't seem like the leader of an organization would be one of two people on a dangerous mission to rob a heavily-guarded train. That's grunt work, or the work of special operatives if they only sent 2. Blake said in Volume 2 at the campfire that she only figured out he was GOING bad around that time.


      So whether he's the leader now or not, he clearly wasn't before.

    From what I've seen so far, odds are that any further surprise appearances will be from Winter Schnee and/or Raven Branwen to save the day or at least be involved in a few fights and that's frankly what a lot of fans are wanting to see at this point.

    But I honestly want to see how they would pull off this guy i.e. Taiyang (Ruby and Yang's father):

    http://rwby.wikia.com/wiki/Taiyang_Xiao_Long


    I'm just interested since he is meant to be an eccentric yet also living with the loss of 2 partners if he was said to have shut down completely while trying to brave it out on top of raising the sisters, even if he was over protective for them both.

    All this has made me more curious than anything so, voice actor and possible fights from him aside, it would be great to see how he gets involved now if not later.


    Albeit I will not be dissapointed if either of the former 2 show up instead/as well, especially in a badass RvB-esque Halo jump or something...fingers crossed!!!

    • Timbo33

      @THE_VIRNO_INFERNO


      I honestly don't think Winter will show before the end. She left way before the trick played on Yang. Winter is most likely in Atlas. As for Raven its possible she might show, but again I doubt it. I think Raven is dealing with bigger issues.....possibly hunting down the entity who is behind Cinder.


      Now it is possible the Taiyang could show up but again Ruby told that he was going on a mission far way at the beginning of this volume. I also can't wait to see his incorporation in this series....if they actually include him. He may be back ground story. I hope not.


      I honestly believe that no one will come and save the day. The teams and teachers there are going to have to basically fend for themselves.

      "As for Raven its possible she might show, but again I doubt it. I think Raven is dealing with bigger issues.....possibly hunting down the entity who is behind Cinder." -Timbo33


      I personally think this is the exact reason why she will come. Because think about it, Cinder isn't going to miss the fight, she'll be right there with all the others.

    • Timbo33

      1 year ago

      @Emily_Ravenwood


      How would Cinder miss the fight? She is right out front on a building staring right down at Ozpin and team JNPR. Cinder is not pulling the string, some bigger baddie behind the scenes is, We don't know to whom she was taking to after her ambush on Amber(Fall) in eps 8. Cinder answers to someone else. That is the entity Raven is looking for(IMO).


      I feel Raven would let thing unfold as they may to achieve her goal which is protecting the world. I feel she would let Yang die if it meant this. Remember Crow stated that Raven helped her 1 time. There won't be a second time. Also that she's dangerous....not evil dangerous but in her mind the means justify the end result.....Loose a city to save the world type means(Coventry, England 14 November 1940).


      Now I could totally be looking in the wrong direction and Raven could go against what i consider to be her ideals. Hell she could be evil for all I know.....but it doesn't feel like this. I think Raven ways are opposite of her brother Crow.


      We'll just have to see when it come out.

      Well, in retrospect, RT has a pretty long history of killing robots that invariably come back. There's no evidence yet that they have the balls to kill off anyone on RWBY or JNPR, and the series doesn't exactly sell itself off as a character grinder.


      RWBY fans can rest assured that the plot armor will remain approximately six meters thick, judging from the distance the Grimm kept while Weiss and Blake held a completely casual conversation and phone call while nonchalantly standing on the front lines of a monster invasion.

    I'm seeing people say that they hope the protagonists lose, and for some reason, they get flamebaited.


    Ask yourself this: would it seriously be good if they won? What, would they just invent a whole new antagonist? We have the darkness, but I suspect fighting a bunch of beasts over and over for the rest of the series to get old real fast.


    Okay, so what if they kept bringing back the enemies we have now?


    Bionicle did that. "Get the masks and beat Makuta."


    Makuta every time: "Surprise, I'm not dead!"


    When they killed Makuta for the last time, it was a bad ending. Why? They made an enemy who was unbeatable. I loved Bionicle, but you have to admit, the repeating main antagonist got old, even with multiple variations such as the Piraka, Sidorax, etc.


    Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Adam were defeated. Cinder and her crew already proved themselves superior. They probably won't deal with her maiden powers for a couple seasons or something. Ruby will figure things out after her fight with Mercury (yes, I got his name right this time), and they'll find out the Fangs weren't as big of a deal, and that the real problem is still out there.


    I really do hope they lose, because honestly, haven't they been considered weak this entire time? If all the elders are calling them inexperienced, then they shouldn't just prove them wrong and be magically beast. If they have to learn, then that's extra character development, extra content, and a longer web series

      A good story needs strong and/or smart villains to create personal conflict and a series of meaningful confrontations.


      In a good story, villain start with an advantage to create that conflict, scoring victories early and gaining ground to build suspense and to give the protagonists that underdog status that make them seem like capable heroes when they do earn a victory in the end.


      We are now familiar with the world. Two years of world building is done, and this is the flagship volume for building up the villains' score. It's too early for them to lose.

      @Fourteenth_Eagle


      i thin it's pretty much confirmed the bad guys are going to win man, i mean, they(Cinder and co) have all the cards, they forced the heroes to react and dance to their tune, they have good intel on how Ozpin reacts while he has no idea who they are, they managed to incite panic, unrest and cause the people to lose faith in the government and system etc etc, even if the Grimm invasion Vale is repelled, it doesn't change the fact that this is a major defeat for the heroes.


      P.s i think the main reason why people are flamebaiting guys who want the protagonists to lose is because they hate seeing the villains win, which only goes to show that Cinder and co are great villains, and great villains are meant to be hated. So we can't really blame them for hitting out on posts that say they want the good guys to lose...it is pretty painful.


      That being said, this will lead to character development aplenty for both teams RWBY and JNPR and even the teachers and Ironwood(If he's alive), i'm all up for character development so long as the characters themselves stay true to who they are i.e keep their main characteristics/personalities/quirks/true selves etc etc

      How is this

      Cinder manages to get the other half of the maidens powers, then use's the chaos to retreat and hide her trail. While the remaining huntress/huntsmen manage to repeal the grim and Whitefang invasion. Vale is saved however just barely, half the city is destroyed and burning, the school fares no better, dead bodies litter the streets and peoples trust in the huntsmen/huntess's ability to protect them is shattered. To make matters worse Ozpin name's Pyrrha as the Guardian, the supposed symbol of Hope and safety, yet all people can remember is what she did to penny during the tournament. This just causing the citizens to further lose there trust in the one's charge and sets up the sparks for a rebellion.

      Crow will be sent out find to try find Cinder's trail and what her next move might be. Team will RWBY will probably follow him (weather by sneaking out or getting permission, most likely the former). Meanwhile team JNPR and other teams will be left to deal with the aftermath of the attack, not only helping rebuild the city but, dealing with the new found discrimination of the citizens all while trying to put down a rebellion before it begins.

      and there you go how is that for a villains victory

      I don't think the protagonists will lose and here's why.

      Cinder is already preparing her next stage via open broadcast of what is going on.

      She simply wants to have Vale licking its wounds, not finish it off.

      Besides, Fall's power is most likely her main objective in Vale.

      After that it'll be inciting a war between nations that Ironwood said "won't happen."

      Vale will take a massive beating (already has) but it will survive, for now.

    • Zourin FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      There are still a lot of variables. Ozpin is the elephant in the room. He's the sleeping giant, and it will be incredibly surprising if Cinder can score a win against him directly, or would want to given her current success being very indirect. She cannot steal the power while Ozpin is in the room, unless Ozpin is a farce.


      The Grimm Dragon is pretty much a solid write-in for a 'consolation victory', offering up at least a tiny win without directly dealing with the overarching Maiden plot. Big D is highly unlikely to do whatever a winning Grimm team does (if there even is such a thing) with Qrow, Glynda, possibly Ozpin and/or Ironwood, and a small army of hormonal teenagers too dumb to turn down a fight they can't win.

      Sidorak wasn't Makuta. Neither were the Barraki. The Vahki and Bohrok had agendas of their own slightly manipulated by Makuta. And he DID win and held that conquest for a year and it was epic.

    • Fourteenth_Eagle

      Yes, Bob. I am aware. I mentioned the variations. My point was that Makuta, the absolute main antagonist, became unkillable because of how many times they brought him back.


      But I specifically mentioned the alternative villains to point out the the Makuta repeats got old despite them

    Will Pyrrha go through with the transfer? If so, how do you guys think she'll turn out? Will she have full control over 2 souls or will she be like Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde?

    • JustJett

      1 year ago

      If she does go through with it I imagine at first she'll have a Jekyll and Hyde thing going on. But at a certain point she'll master it and it'll be a much more controlled relationship like Piccolo and Nail. But Cinder absorbed half of this maiden's soul and she did say it effected her and gave her a "hunger" but hasn't turned her schizo or anything so who knows.

    • Badnik_Rose FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold TK Badnik

      1 year ago

      It gave Cinder hunger because she only was able to steal half, she hungers for the other half.

      Cinder's case doesn't really tell us how Pyrrha's will go at all though, because Amber's aura isn't any part of what Cinder stole.

    I can see Ruby down and Roman standing there gloating. And being the overconfident narcissist that he is, he pulls out the scroll Neo gave him, and taunts Ruby with it, saying it is because of it that he was able to bring all of Vale to its knees. Next thing you see is Ruby asking that it controls everything and Roman says yes. Next thing he knows, there is a large hole in the scroll and Ruby smirking. The robots turn back blue and the airship starts falling.

      @Cordless549 Just because more teams show up doesn't mean they automatically win. Last I checked, those 3 teams LOST their fights with the teams that are already fighting. Plus 12 more people isn't going to make a huge difference against the multiple armies that are attacking.

    If Arkos dies before they kiss then I will be most unhappy. That is the one thing I am holding onto in these dark times in Vale. I'm expecting Jaune to spend more time at her side than others here but still willing to buy her time. I can't see him being a fan of the plan but will support her decision.

    Prediction Time:


    Ruby vs Neo - Ruby begins to get the upper hand and push Neo off but Torch intervenes and almost pushes Ruby off (cue the scene from the trailer). Ruby has a "come to Jesus moment", gets up and begins to kick butt. Right before she is able to defeat Torch, Neo recovers and teleports them both off but starts an auto destruct sequence on the ship trying to kill Ruby.


    Blake vs Adam - Long battle. Adam constantly has the upper hand and all during it, taunts Blake and tries to make her lose hope. It begins to work as Blake begins to doubt herself and lose even worse (cue the scene from the trailer). Something inside Blake snaps and she begins fight more aggressively, only wanting Adam's blood. She wins and is about to kill Adam when he makes a revelation (possibly about Blake's parents?) and she snaps out of it and spares him as she sees Weiss begin to get over run by soldiers. She goes to help Weiss but not before promising to kill Adam the next time she sees him. Adam escapes.


    Finally, Pyrrha - Oz and Pyrrha are riding the elevator down to Amber and he is explaining the origin of the Grimm Dragon, saying only a maiden can defeat it. As they are traveling down, the entire time Pyrrha is accepting of her fate, but just as Oz opens up the pod (cue the scene from the trailer) she begins to have second thoughts. These only magnify as Jaune follows them down and as soon as he reaches them, Cinder busts in. Pyrrha jumps into the pod and Oz begins the process as Jaune swears he will protect Pyrrha at any cost. He tries to fight Cinder but loses badly. As he goes down a third time and Cinder loses interest, he finds his inner semblence (pure energy [kinda like the bolts Penny used in her weapons but gold/white colored]) and keeps fighting Cinder. He initially gains the upper hand as he surprises Cinder but Cinder unleashes the maiden power and over powers Jaune. Just as she is about to strike him down, Oz does something (attack or use his semblence) to temporarily stun Cinder. He tells Jaune to watch Pyrrha as he attempts to stall Cinder. The final scene is Jaune crawling over the machine, hearing some kind of ding or "finished" noise. He looks as the camera shows Pyrrha's shoes stepping out of the pod and slowly pans up her body til it reaches her closed eyes. FINAL SHOT: Pyrrha opens her eyes, the begin to glow flaming to reveal she now has the other half of the Fall maiden's powers.

      For all we know it could be Adam's interpretation of their relationship, Or they could have been together but Blake dosnt like to think about it, considering how psycotic he is. Need i remind you:

      "What about the crew members?"

      "What about them?"

      If i was in a relationship with someone like that I wouldnt want to admit how deep the connection went either!

    I'll be honest my theory is that Cinder will get the fall maidens power by the end of the season, Vale wont be recovered and season 4 will be the train up season for the main cast in order to get Vale back eventually. I am very confident that the next season will not take place in Vale. It will probably be within one of the other 3 kingdoms. + The other 3 remaining maidens are probably residing within those 3 kingdoms (Winter in Mantle, Spring in Mistral and Summer in Vacuo, though part of me already thinks Ruby is the Summer maiden...). This is just my take on the topic.
