Volume 4, Chapter 7: Punished

RWBY: Volume 4, Chapter 7: Punished

It's been several months since the Fall of Beacon, and the world of Remnant is still recovering. Tensions are high, lives have been lost, and the members of Team RWBY... are divided. Each of our heroines now faces a journey of their own. While some must search inward if they ever hope to move on, others will venture out into the world in search of answers. Alongside the remaining members of Team JNPR, Ruby Rose has begun the long trek to the kingdom of Mistral, but the road ahead is full of surprises. New friends and enemies await, while the threat of an even larger catastrophe draws near.

    With what we know about scorpion anatomy, does anyone else suspect that Tyrian is gonna be dealing with the world's worst case of constipation after what Ruby did?

    I think I figured out Tyrian's semblence. I think he's a weapon detector. Qrow was able to get in all those hits and walk past Tyrian without challenge until he got his weapon back.

      Yeah he just let Qrow get his weapon back and then seemed happier when he did.

      I think you may be right. He deflected all Ruby's sniper shots with his tail, then the unarmed Qrow punched him in the face.

      I'm more inclined to believe that Tyrian's Semblance is poison control, in that he can manipulate the qualities of his poison, allowing him to use it to kill or paralyze and subdue.  My main reason for this is that he showed no reservations about using his sting on Ruby, despite Salem's insistence of having Ruby brought to her alive.  Likewise, when Qrow takes the sting meant for Ruby, he's left helpless for the following episodes until he's treated, but doesn't necessarily appear to get worse past the point of becoming immobile and delirious (although, who knows after enough time had passed).


      The other factor that leads me to believe this is that Tyrian's eyes change color when he's deliberately about to strike with his stinger.  Now, who else do we know in the cast whose eyes change color (Hint!  She's kinda important.) and what causes her eyes to change color?  To me, this suggests that, when Tyrian's eyes are violet when he's using his stinger, he's using his Semblance to moderate the potency of his venom.

    I'm just now catching up on RWBY ( I like to binge), and although this is a good episode, I don't like the route they took with Ruby: In order for Qrow to get hurt, as well as, to show how outclassed Ruby currently is, Ruby was made incompetent. At least twice, in the last 45sec or so, she had to be saved.

    Yes, this is more about the injury and the difference in fighting ability, but they plain made her useless to make it happen.

      There's also the factor of Qrow's semblance. That could definitely be attributed to some of Ruby's failure in the fight

      Ruby seems to heavily specialize in fighting Grimm. She struggles with most human/faunus opponents that are huntsman or huntsman in training class but is incredibly effective at fighting everything else.

      I believe the only reason Ruby was made worthless (to be fair though so was Ren and Nora) was to show out Qrow's semblance.

    I don't know if you guys notice in the minute 13:59 his aura gets drained the electricity look fadded, but in the minute 14:02 the electricity looked more brighten, I think during a battle the hunstman's aura gets drained but they are trained to restored to full charge.

    Okay, so I've now watched the second half of this episode 25 or 30 times (literal not hyperbole) because I am completely obsessed with Qrow, every gorgeous moment in Qrow vs Tyrian, and especially "Bad Luck Charm". But let me talk about Weiss again for a moment. How awesome is she in this episode? Her storyline this volume has been a bit hit-miss for me, but I am seriously in love with her female-empowerment awesomeness in this episode. Am I being too dramatic if I call her a role model? When she's hurt, she doesn't hold it in, she doesn't bury her hurt and pretend to be fine - she let's herself cry. Sometimes you just need to cry.  But then, she stops crying.  She stops crying, gets up, and fights back. It's perfect. I won't be so presumptuous as to tell every woman to be like Weiss, but WWWSD is something I'll be keeping in mind. Get hurt, cry, stop crying, get up, and KICK BUTT!

    And of course, that BEAUTIFUL fight,.. when Nora centers herself in front of Tyrian, after his 'dirty-word', I was just BEGGING for him to come at her. No(ra) means No(ra)!!!

    Holy shit! I always wondered about whether or not two people's Aura's or souls could combine. I even had this whole scenario about it which I will share:


    In this world people manifest their Aura's to defend themselves and use power right? So if someone was sharing their Aura with another, say twins connected by soul since one or the other died during childbirth, then would they be able to manifest the soul of the other? 


    If they share aura's and by extension souls, could you theoretically pull a Shadow of Mordor and have them enter the field of combat?

      Hey mate, Weiss is "nice but can also be a little bit bitchy". Can you really blame her for being that way considering what Monty himself has said about her character and how everything has been decided for her in her life, and because of it, she is a bit of a rebel.


      Ultimately, she is one of the characters that you learn to love the more you know about her.

    So I hate to be this guy but I gotta say it. With the trailer I was really worried the crew wouldn't be able to do monty-esque action sequences, I felt like it was this shows greatest strength and was just worried that it would be lost. But this episode just blew apart that worry, it's not the same but you can see the parts where it's similar and all the cool original style they added in too. I guess what i'm trying to say is, you're doing great, and I was wrong to be worried

    Ok, besides Crow popping Tyrion in the nose, I'd say the part I liked the most was Ruby cutting off his tail... wasn't really expecting that of Ruby, and that's what made it so amazing.


    And I'm in agreement with many others apparently, kept hoping Weiss would bitch slap daddy dearest and her little snot of a brother. Got a little irritated at how passive she was about the whole thing... I mean, isn't she an adult? 17 at least, and she's old enough to risk her life in combat but is still susceptible to grounding? I call BS, no way that'd hold up with the police. Well, any police Papa Schnee doesn't have in his pocket. Looking forward to seeing how Weiss gets out.

      I hope her and Winter team up and slaughter their entire family. But I can understand her initial reaction and I'm sure she won't just sit around as he tries to bully her. That being said, I'm a little worried for her health if she leaves.

    Lyrics for Qrow+Ruby  vs Tyrian


    Pain
    Is your reward for being near me
    Fate
    Won't be your friend when i'm around
    Fade
    Before the tragedy that follows
    Flee
    The situations I surround

    I'm a hole in light
    I cannot lie 
    I will change the Color of your life
    I don't mean to bring you pain
    But I will, just wait, I can explain 

    I am no one's blessing
    I'll just bring you harm
    I'm a cursed black cat
    I'm an albatross
    I'm a mirror broken
    Accept your fate
    I'm your bad luck charm

      Some people say Accept your fate is supposed to be Save yourself, but i just cant make myself hear it...

      Awesome!  New favorite RWBY song!  Your lyrics look a lot more accurate than ones I've seen on other sites, so thank you for that :-)  I agree with your edit though, it's almost definitely "harbinger".  I think it might also be "I shall bring you harm", but that's the part it's quietest, so it's hard to say. As for the 2nd to last line... "Accept your fate", "Save yourself", "Save your fate", "Safe to say", I listen over and over and I can't get it.  For that one we might just have to wait for Jeff to tell us or for the clearer soundtrack version to be released (quickly please please please!)

      And the "hole in light" line, I'm also hearing that as "I'm a harbinger" (very certain)

      with the second part being "that you might die" (not as certain)

      Oh and I'm almost certain colour is karma.

      close, these are the lyrics according to Youtube, and I believe they were officially confirmed

      Pain 
      Is your reward for being near me
      Fate
      Won't be your friend when I'm around
      Blame
      Me for the tragedies that follow
      Grave 
      The situations that surround
      I'm a Harbinger 
      I cannot lie
      I will change the color of your life
      I don't mean to bring you pain
      But I will; just why I can't explain
      I am no one's blessing
      I'll just bring you harm
      I'm a cursed black cat
      I'm an albatross
      I'm a mirror broken
      Sad to say

    alright, this is probably just me being hopeful at this point but if you notice the eye change with Tyrian (and assume it means he's switching from paralytic venom to lethal venom in his tail) his eyes are purple when he tries to sting Ruby and yellow when he's attempting to sting Qrow. One might assume that purple eyes means paralytic venom, and yellow eyes means lethal (because Salem wanted Ruby alive). When he finally grazed Qrow, his eyes were still purple and his tail was at an angle like he was trying to sting Ruby by going under Qrow's arm. Hopefully this means that the venom will simply put Qrow down but not kill him. However, Tyrian's look when he manages to get Qrow makes me worry because he had the smirk of a man who knows he won, which of course goes back to maybe he was smirking because he was about to sting Ruby as well. But again, I'm probably just being hopeful because after last season it seems they just decided to go Game of Thrones on us and kill every character we love.

    ok, i'm fuming at wises dad and brother not that i didn't kind of expect something shiny from them. but as much hurt as wises has had, we had our confrontation with daddy, and his essentially penultimate betrayal, and we cried and now were practicing. i'm sure she will be gone from the house in no time, maybe someday she will rest the company back. for now not being heirs actually free her, to do what she wants. but dam i new i hated him, i hate him i hate him i hate him. to borrow a Nora saying "break his legs" or maybe his arms, so he stoped ing them to grab people and hit his women, i bet he hits his wife to. also, cool fight, ruby got in some good moves working with her unclad that fine shot citing off his tale, after he wounded Qrow. i really hope Qrow is ok, poison is a bitch, and they are in the middle of no where. i wonder why he also went down with the roof it seamed on purpose but they both left it with out aura so dangerous move. i hope he turns out to be ok, and now ruby will no the maidens are real. maybe we'll even learn something new, when ruby learns. also Oscar and Jaune sound very similar. also just had a thought no one outside of Becon new Blake was a faunus, so if Weiss' dad found that out he'd be probly even more disgusted with his daugther for consorting with those animals.

    Someone kindly correct me if i'm wrong. KINDLY. But isn't Qrow a better fighter with a scythe? From what i remember the fan wiki and just random episodes or other sources pointed at him being mainly a scythe wielder (yes i know the sword is the scythe, but if you're better with that kind of weapon, use it? ), hence the dramatic gear turns when he first fights winter or saves ironwood from the grimm. In such an important fight, would it not be better to use your signature weapon? Or is it that the fighting style of a scythe was less suited to combat Tyrian? Also, yes i agree with the other comments, someone needs to take a bat or some other weapon to Weiss' dads knees, he's just an absolute twat.

    GOOD GOD I could watch that fight for hours on end. You guys have me hooked. Just please don't dawdle when it comes to stuff going down. Weiss needs to be escaping next time we see her. In the meantime, hoping for some yang action tomorrow. Tho with her going this long without an appearance I'm wondering if they'll just skip the training and cut to yang meeting up with the team in the middle of some battle or something. Which would be kinda cool, as long as they have her talk about it thru flashback or something.
