SPOILERS FOR VOLUME 8 AHEAD. IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED VOLUME 8, DON'T READ. IF YOU LOVE SPOILERS, KNOCK YOURSELF OUT.
So, I'm a little late to the ballgame when it comes to RWBY. I saw a bunch of fan art from an artist I love on instagram (check out Lesly Oh! Her art is amazing!), but I didn't know the fandom she was drawing from, so I had to look it up. I'd heard of RWBY on and off over the years, but never really looked into it. But now I've binged all the episodes up to Volume 8, Episode 9 over the span of a month, so I'm all caught up.
And I've got a bunch (one, really) of theories that've been eating me up inside. Now, this is merely a theory so try not to read into it too much. I do need to go through two points before jumping into my theory:
First of all, I believe RWBY is not destined to go beyond nine seasons. I have a feeling that by Vol. 9, the show will end. Maybe, maybe not, who knows?
Secondly, let's face it: RWBY is RT's only truly popular tv show. Most of the other videos they produce are almost vlog-like, and seem more suited for YouTube. But the moment RWBY ends, I believe RT will see a downhill decline unless they decide to do something drastic.
Right, now to my Theory:
So far, we've seen how psychotic Salem is. She's a pretty awful person in general. She has an army of Grimm at her disposal and she can't die. Like, cannot cannot die. She also has a loyal group of minions ... or does she?
Already, we've seen Emerald and Hazel abandon her because of basic human decency and morality. Mercury is coming to realize that Salem's plan to summon the Brothers in order to destroy the world (so she and everyone will die) is not in his best interest. I'm sure we'll see him ditch Salem in the future. Arthur Watts is now in the custody of Atlas Military, and I'm almost positive that he'll stick with them, because they aren't as terrible and he can negotiate with them, unlike Salem, who will probably dispose of him now that his work is done.
The only one who will stick with Salem is Tyrian, because he's just as bad, if not worse, than Salem, purely because he is an off-the-rails psycho.
And Cinder? Cinder was abused and controlled all her youth, and now she's seeing that same pattern with Salem. This will be a "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" moment. I can see Cinder betraying Salem purely on account of Cinder wanting to be the one in power, no longer under the thumb of someone else.
And with Ruby's broadcast to the rest of Remnant, everyone knows about Salem and her nefarious plans.
The point is, we are slowly seeing the entire cast of characters uniting. Yes, General Ironwood is making some very questionable, very paranoid decisions, and yes, the villains might be fighting Salem only for their own benefit, but it ultimately doesn't matter. They're fighting against Salem in different ways but on a united front. The Brothers said that if they return to Remnant and see unity, they'll leave the world to exist peacefully, but if the war is in utter chaos and discord, they would destroy it. Salem, by her mere existence, is uniting the world against her.
I believe Salem, towards the end of Volume 8, will gain the lamp and the relic hidden at Atlas Academy. Throughout Volume 9, we may see Team RWBY and friends fight desperately to keep the remaining relics away from Salem, only to fail in the end.
And in the end, Salem wins. The Brothers are summoned.
But then everything changes: The world of Remnant is united, maybe not in the way of "world peace" but in the ultimate act of the higher good. They're united against the ultimate evil, and for the Brothers, that's enough to kill Salem and leave Remnant peacefully.
The end. Everyone lives happily ever after, and the tv show will come to a close.
I don't know, it's just a theory. Maybe not probable, but it's possible. Maybe ending RWBY will make way for some spin-offs, which will keep the franchise alive in some way and will keep subscribers.
There are definitely a lot of places the CRWBY could take it: they could make a bunch of rich and personal character shorts for the vast cast of characters (personally, a character short about Neo would be fantastic. Neo and Roman and General Ironwood and Winter and pretty much everyone). They could further explore other Huntsman Academies. They could do a prequel series about a time where there was magic everywhere (a medieval RWBY spinoff sounds awesome). And so on, and so forth.
In conclusion, I believe the creators of RWBY made a great show with a detailed, rich, in depth world, a world that can be fully explored once RWBY ends.
I suppose only time will tell.
It must happen in volume 9
I came across a article about Qrow and Raven and by proxy Clover and Robyn that really fascinated me and made me think more about the bird twin's that could further explain more about there personality's here's a link tell me what you guy's think
I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to understand. I'm okay with waiting a little longer for episodes. With that said, they can't still be working on the episodes, right? I mean, I don't understand why you would take a 2 month break, and then need a 1 week break just a week after that. It's really odd. What do you guys think? Rewrites? Trying to spread it out to avoid viewer fatigue? What's going on?
About a month ago I added RWBY's score in the "Featured Music" section for each episode through Volumes 5-7, as they had previously been done in Volumes 1-4.
With the shift to more dynamic titles for the score in those recent Volumes, it would be hard to distinguish whether a song in one of those pages is a lyrical song or a score for someone who doesn't know the soundtrack. I tried to somewhat negate this by putting the lyrical songs at the bottom of the list, but there's nothing to indicate how many of them are in the list or if there are even any there.
Since the lyrical songs of RWBY are much more popular than the score, there are people who could hear the song in the episode and check the episode page on the wiki to see what the song is called, only to not be able to tell which one it is with all of the score mixed with it.
As such, I am proposing the idea of adding an "Episode Score" section to the episode infobox template before "Featured Music", to distinguish the score from the lyrical songs.
Cinder will betray Salem and replace her as the main antagoinst of the story, and Salem will reform.
I have absolutely no evidence to support this at all. I just wonder if this is something rooster teeth would do.
So now we have Yang's Group infiltrating Monstra, and we see the formerly fractured team working together, no longer distrusting one another. Very nice to see their bonds being repaired, a breath of fresh air I'd say.
And Hazel has Oscar summon Jinn, but that's all he does since it shows Oscar was telling the truth. Emerald witnesses this, so Hazel decides to help her and Oscar escape, unaware that a certain ice cream had overseen the whole spectacle.
As the Atlas army holds the line, the bomb is delivered. Winter is determined to transfer it into Monstra as ordered, regardless if the heroes have escaped or not. Marrow asks if she'd do the same if Weiss was in there. Winter sadly confirmed it, citing it was her duty, putting it over her heart yet again.
Emerald brings a disguised Oscar to the group, and though Yang is especially upset over everything Emerald has done to them, she promises to help them escape.
As they reach the "hangar," Salem catches up to them. Though the heroes to their best, Salem's Grimm regeneration renders all their attacks futile. Yang calls her out for taking Summer from her, which amuses Salem. Though she's not amused the Lamp is stolen, and reasons Emerald took it. Though Hazel arrives, discreetly returns Oscar's cane, and finally turns against Salem to avenge Gretchen. He overloads himself with Dust, but even then he cannot kill Salem. So he binds her so Oscar can deal the finishing blow, as the episode ends.
EDIT: Overall, this was a pretty solid episode, with plenty of character interaction, always love that.
But man, they're gonna regret not using that last question, because either Neo is stealing it for Cinder or possibly gonna do an about-face and claim she "recovered" it for Salem, thus giving her the chance to find the Beacon Relic. Not good.
I know I did this as a poll but I think written format would be interesting to discuss since RWBY as we know is a great series with action and emotional moments even though it has its pitfalls that plague the series.
Though me being an optimist I feel like this series is great! Also many series has crossovers with other series to boost the popularity, some make sense, some raise hype and some are just bizarre!
We know RWBY had a crossover with BlazBlue, Persona, Under Nights In-Birth, Akatsuki Blitzkampf, Arcana Hearts, and Senran Kagura in the video game BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Now they are having another crossover with the Justice League though technically its more of a fusion world.
Now the question is what other crossovers do you think this series will have?
Well the crossovers I feel like RWBY might have are:
BlazBlue: Just BB and RWBY no other series, and since Monty was a huge fan of Arc Systems and Mori being a fan of RWBY it would be awesome to see these two series crossover maybe as a manga or a video game.
Power Rangers: Teenagers with attitude fighting a witch that controls monsters? Pretty damn good crossover idea, I mean Power Rangers crossover with DC quite a few times so seeing them with RWBY would be nice. I feel like this crossover would be a comic series.
Honkai Impact 3: This is probably the most requested crossover almost much like DMC x Bayonetta or BlazBlue x Guilty Gear type of crossover wanting. They are similiar and very interesting to see crossover together.
For a while, a lot of people have complained that Salem keeping Ruby alive is unnecessary and stupid, because she (along with all the other SEW's) are too big a weapon in the fight against Salem to justify keeping alive. It had been speculated that she had a damn good reason for doing so. Sadly, making hounds isn't a very good reason.
Would it not be better to just wipe the SEWs off the face of the earth than keep them around just for the sake of creating yet another OP grimm species? Isn't an OP grimm pointless if it can just be wiped out by SEWs anyway? Is the hound really such a cornerstone to Salem's quest that it justifies keeping the people who will inevitably lead to Salem's downfall alive?
The whole thing is awfully reminiscent of Van Helsing (yes, that awful movie with Hugh Jackman). Where Dracula can only be killed by being bitten by a werewolf, so he comes up with the brilliant idea of keeping werewolves around because he likes using them as bodyguards. And in the end (SPOILERS) he gets killed by a werewolf. This seems like pretty much the same damn thing.
So, unfortunately, this plot twist doesn't make Salem's quest to capture the SEWs (as opposed to slaughtering them all) any less stupid. She should've directed Cinder to kill Ruby long ago, as she should have directed others to kill every last SEW she could find. Instead, Ruby will lead to her downfall. Shocker!
