Volume 5, Chapter 13: Downfall

RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 13: Downfall

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

    Ok, a few things: (Spoilers)


    1. DAMN THAT RAVEN VS CINDER FIGHT WAS GOOD!! LOOK AT THOSE EFFECTS!!


    2. So apparently the vault door is a portal to another dimension or something? Hopefully this gets explained or is used, maybe as a hideaway from Salem or something, since only a maiden can open the door.


    3. Doubt that Cinder is dead, but 2 theories: If Cinder did die, and a maiden's powers can be transferred to the last person they thought of before their death, did Cinder potentially think of Salem before her death? And if Cinder did survive and somehow got another maiden's power, is that even possible? Can someone handle having the power of 2 maidens or more?

      it's just a result of them not being able to replicate what mony oum brought to the series. The fights have been lack luster and underwhelming and it's unfortunately just something we're going to have to accept

      Well, I mean. Adam was a megalomaniac. And a sociopath. He wasn't planning on the monkey wrench of a literal army from Menagerie. He thought he had done everything right, he thought he had taken care of Sienna Khan. He thought he had taken care of the Belladonnas. He believed that his charisma made him unchallenged. He had just miscalculated, and everything started falling apart. He was essentially having a breakdown, which would have been hidden as mere desperation had he actually blown everyone up. But even that part of his plan (figuratively) blew up in his face.

    Am I the only one that wants to see a *lot* more out of Raven's dust blades? The one that caught my eye most was the black one, definitely. Remember the episode where Weiss fought off the lancer swarm? The floating islands were held up by Gravity Dust, which was black/gray in color. I really want to see what RT can come up with for gravity-elemental weapons

      I think the point is that Adam got as far as he did because so many people were scared of him. Then, once Blake stopped being a scaredy-cat, we see that he's just as "human" as the rest of them, and not an actual threat.

    someone probably covered this, but, I just had a thought....now that most of the villains have been defeated/killed/arrested/etc, this leaves a pretty open moment to bring in a surprise.. how about mr. torchwood and his beautiful parasol-wielding cohort suddenly proving his "survival" skills? or perhaps we might see a tie in of some of the story line villains from grimm eclipse?

    I think a few things are bound to happen in new episodes: 

    1. Blake and Yang have unresolved issues to work out, as does yang and Raven

    2. Weiss has some reckoning coming from her family, or possibly support?

    3. Ozpin has a long path ahead in coexisting with his new vessel, who clearly has his own will.

    4  Jaune is going to be much more important, both to the team and to enemies as a target... and possibly to Weiss?<3

    5 returning to beacon is going to be a necessity, as a maiden vault is still hidden there. (id personally love to see that their bunk beds survived all the destruction and mayhem)

    and 6, theres the inevitable final battle with salem.


    I cant wait!

    SPOILERS!!! WATCH CHAPTER BEFORE READING THIS!!! I absolutely LOVE the Nora/Hazel fight and the Raven/Cinder fight. We've never see two maidens battling before, and I think this certainly delivered. I just hope team RWBY  kick the SHIT out of Salem and her inner circle, after Mercury and Emerald run away, because Emerald once said 'I don't care about Salem, but I owe Cinder EVERYTHING' so if she's gone, they'd probably retreat because they're afraid because their leader, the one who seems to be so incredibly powerful and is a maiden, has died.

    Also, I love Nora's lines when fighting Hazel. Great voice acting BTW. I also really enjoyed the song that played while Cinder and Raven fight.

    Any thoughts on what may happen to Raven and Yang? I hope Raven tells Yang what happened and Raven falls on the 'good' side, because she killed Cinder. I would think Cinder's power transferred to Raven, because she was looking at her

      It wouldn't make sense if Raven got both spring and fall maiden powers beacause would've acted weird if she was getting both Fall and Spring powers. More likely, Neo or Emerald would be the next person eligible for the Fall maiden powers. By the looks of Raven's face in the end, it looks like shes on her own and the fact she'll do everything for her tribe. Mother/daughter confrontation is right upon us. 


      Oh wait, did I say Neo? Rooster Teeth put her BACK in Volume 6 along with Neptune and Glynda plz!!!

      The sad thing is while this is true, it's also a terrible fight compared to ANYTHING else in RWBY. Sure it was awesome spectacle, but RWBY has always been about the intimate details of each individuals fighting styles clashing against others, while this last fight was all about boring DBZ style "teleport, swing swing, teleport, swing swing, teleport, swing swing" and then a bunch of cool looking displays of raw power.

    Kind of hope the heroes are genre savvy enough to check the body after learning that Cinder is "dead". Just a short 5 second scene of crow form Qrow landing at the bottom of the Vault and observing the shattered remains of Cinder Popsicle, sort of a call back to the Penny scene.


    But then it turns out Salem is even more genre savvy and that the Grimm bug is still staying at Casa de Salem or escaped Cinder's body or something and functions as a phylactery, trapping Cinder's soul so that she can be revived even after death.

      The Maidens can use all types of magic, not just the type of magic you would associate with their name. They use the type of magic that they are most comfortable with or the one most suited for the situation. They just never clearly stated it during the show.

      As luminedracone said, they all appear to have free access to all kinds of magic.  Just in their fight, you see Cinder use both fire and ice, and arguably earth since she can make solid structures.  Then Raven uses ice and electricity.

    That last fight was epic! Totally montyworthy. You really captured the characters in motion, something that I feel was lacking for a lot of this series. Excellent work!

    • noonyakaleka

      7 hours ago

      "montyworthy"? I don't think I'd say that. Monty would be proud, for sure, because he always saw the best in everyone and everything. But Monty himself was very particular and liked to work on even the smallest detail of the fight to make each fighting style as authentic and as distinguished as possible. There was still way too much "jumping around" in regards to a lot of lacking details that Monty would have made sure were included and worked on himself. To me Cinder and Raven have the same fight style and are exchanging a lot of tit for tat. I don't really see much that is unique about them in their fighting styles, minute at best. Cinder calls a big fire/coal sword, Raven calls a bigger ice sword....yay! (sarcasm)

      But it was still an awesome fight.

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

      1 hour ago

      I finally found someone who sees what I see (noonyakaleka). The fight was _alright_ but it wasn't Montyworthy. Monty really cared about the individuality and creativity of each individual and their fighting style. Each action scene had meticulous attention to detail and let each character show off what made them "them". 

      When a fight has rapid, unviewable movement (ala DBZ) and quick clashes for more than 5 seconds, it's lazy animation and not a good fight. If it's added for a moment to showcase the caliber of the fighters, it then adds to the fight. I do like how they had the massive showing of the Maiden power at the end, because we've never seen something on that scale before in RWBY, but if it continues to be that from now on, it will make both that moment less special and all others like it boring.

    People has suggested that Cinders power would go to either Ruby or Emerald if she did die. I'm pretty sure Salem had a plan B if Cinder would die so the power remain on one of her own followers. 


    I mean Salem has been around for hundreds maybe thousands of years.


    She would have instructed Cinder to think at that person if something went wrong. Someone who hate the protagonist.


    What about Neo. Neo is young. She is a very skilled fighter, and she must hate Ruby with a passion similar to Cinders,  because she hold Ruby responsibly of Romans death.


    I know this is pure speculation but it could be an interesting meeting this time between Raven and Neo.

    What does Adam use to keep that mask on his face, surgical screws, super glue? After that hit from Blake I was hoping to we would finally get to see what was under that mask, but it was not even hanging loose. Speaking of Adam, his line about "making humanity paid for what they done" after trying to blow everyone up made me wonder who does he hate more, humans or himself. I say this because I think back to the Faunus World of Remnant when Qrow said that the offspring of a human and a Faunus is "typically" a Faunus, meaning that there is that 1-in-a-million chance that the offspring could be born without a Faunus trait making them inherently human. And what if Adam is that 1-in-a-million and his horns are fake and attached to his mask like some people theorized back when he killed Sienna Khan. Being from both sides, but not really belonging to either. His actions so far makes it seem like he is trying too hard to be a Faunus, which makes me think that something happened that made him want to reject his human side.

    • luminedracone

      12 hours ago

      The transfer of power from one Maiden to the next has a few rules to it. The first candidate to receive the power is a young woman that the last Maiden was thinking. If the last Spring Maiden was thinking of Raven when she died then that is how Raven became the current Spring Maiden. Cinder is hinting that either the last Spring Maiden truly trusted Raven when she died, or perhaps Raven killed her to gain the power.

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

      Perhaps the previous Spring maiden trusted Raven and then Raven killed her to take the power. Cinder also added in "I bet that was a mistake." Which suggests maybe Raven did her dirty somehow

      The original spring maiden could have been a member of her tribe already. It is suggested that she fled the academy because she could not handle the responsibility to be a maiden.

    First off: The fight between Raven and Cinder was incredible. Really well done.

    I also liked the artwork for the relic storage, giving that gold ol interdimensional magical place vibe. But there's one big immersion breaker here for me: They got us all hyped up with Ruby being pissed, and at the beginning of the chapter Ruby and Yang charge Emerald and Mercury. But when Blake enters the building, they are just standing around like idiots with Ruby having sheathed crescent rose? Why? Like you know that your opponents are really dangerous fighters who are directly responsible for the fall of beacon, causing who knows how many deaths, time is off the essence, you have other friends fighting and wounded on the floor, and you just... decided to give the bad guys a break? Why. Aren't. You. Freaking. Fighting? The rest of the chapter more than makes up for it, but boy did this moment irritate me.

    No offense, but CRWBY needs extreme supervision for various errors. Lionhearts "standing" in the background is a bit distracting, but there's something worse. When avoiding a sideways sword swing, you have to dodge to the opposite direction of the swing so you obviously won't get cut. Review this part of the episode (7:35) and if you'll notice, Blake.........actually dodged with the swing.

      @Lexilex

      The only phyiscal difference between Maidens so far is the color of their eye flairs when they use their powers. But I don't know whether the different colors represent their respective Maiden powers or if they are based off of their aura or eye colors. This is just theory, but since each kingdom's academy guards a relic, the corresponding Maiden is associated with or from that kingdom.

      Liars see their lies in others. Remember when Raven commented about how Cinder FALL was so appropriate she probably picked it herself? Yea, she probably did that with Vernal and is calling bs on Cinder for doing the same thing.

      But then again, with normal people (well supposedly, so far) named "Summer" and "Winter", maybe Vernal was always named Vernal and Raven chose her to be the decoy because of her name.

      I'm not entirely sure as to whether or not Cinder died, but I did notice one thing that (literally) stuck out to me - when Cinder was frozen, she had shards of ice jutting out of her body in addition to thin sheet. This suggests to me that she was frozen all the way through, which would *definitely* be fatal; note that most of these spikes showed up before the primary ice sheet, and that one appears to be piercing her heart. Raven at least had her aura to protect her when she was frozen in the last episode, whereas Cinder did not

    Or rather the lack there of. Everyone as at least a little bit hair-physics, but ravens hair is 1 static chunk. It really isn't any kind of major flaw, nor does it affect the story in any way, but it makes it seem like that raven occasionally showers in hair gel.

    AGH. ok, so people said they wanted a good fight scene. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?! but also, i heard somewhere that this was the finale. i dont think it is, but if im wrong, im going to be VERY FUCKING MAD, because that would be the ultimate in painful cliffhangers!

      Volume 5 will be 14 episodes long. The finale will come out on Saturday I believe (at least for FIRST members).

      Saturday for FIRST members, Tuesday for regular account holders, the following Saturday on Youtube. This will probably be the same release schedule next volume too.

      It was announced during RTX, before the volume started, that there would be 14 episodes.

    raven was acting kinda motherly when she closed renols eyes, maybe shes got a good side after all ... just not with yang.

      Vernal*  her name literally means spring.

      Exactly - so many people paint Raven as some harsh, uncaring monster, and she's really not. She genuinely cares for the people that matter to her - she just doesn't consider blood relations to be particularly important. She didn't hate Yang, she wanted to give her a chance, and Yang turned it down. Neither of them are explicitly wrong in their thinking - really the only majorly disagreeable thing about Raven is her banditry, but to be fair that's where she was raised.

      Why did she let her die then? She did care about her somewhat, but really Vernal's death was meaningless. It gave no tactical advantage. Raven could've just said "I'm the spring maiden" and fought Cinder all the same without Vernal dying. That might not be her character's fault though. It's probably bad writing's fault.

    I'm a faithful RWBY follower but I nearly stopped watching it. I love the characters and the story, but it was the 'iconic' fights scenes got me hooked to RWBY in the first place. The ending fight was the saving grace for this season. I do feel like the amazingly awesome fights scenes have definitely been missing from this season and it's not a re-watchable season for me.

      I think they brought back one of the old animators for episodes 13 and 14, because the lame telenovela that volumes 4 and 5 were so far has started losing fans.

      did you not enjoy yang's fight with the bandits? or did you just skip that scene?

      yang's fight with bandits was not enough when you compare to how much non-action scenes there was and tbh it was a good fight but I didn't enjoy it since they tried so hard to make yang look like a badass which had the opposite effect on me.

      The thing is, the fights are likely never going to be the same. If you didn't know, the creator of the series and main animator behind the fight scenes, Monty Oum, died.

    I want to point out that while all this is happening no one thought to get Taiyang. He is just at home playing with Zwei meanwhile this is going on.

      Get the guy who on a small island which would be hard to get into contact with in time and then have him travel a very large distance. Not putting you down but I don't think they could

      I highly doubt Cinder or even Salem could have accounted for Taiyang so it would have made sense if Raven prepared a portal for him as a back up. I mean, 3 members of arguably the strongest team Beacon's ever had? No way would this have gone well for Cinder. Plus, i wanna see a Hazel vs Taiyang XD.

    The sweet high of binging like 5 chapters of RWBY has worn off only to be replaced by the soul crushing realization that the volume is almost over and now it'll be another break until the next volume ;_; Now I know what drug withdrawal symptoms feel like. And it hurts.... so painful... Need more RWBY. ITS SO GOOD!!!!!! God I love RooterTeeth. Yall are the best. Here's to the greatest bunch of people ever (that means you other fans too!) :)

      I binged the first 10 episodes because watching one every week would've been painful. Volumes 4 and 5 are painfully boring.

    If Raven is in the new blazblue she better be this intense, they both better be.

    Everyone's either talking about Cinder "dying" or talking about Raven being the winter maiden because she uses ice (even though all 4 maidens can use ANY element they want) I just cant get over the voice acting for Nora! Especially the Hazel/Nora mini fight ^.^ says MR Ducky
