Volume 1[edit | edit source]

The First Step[edit | edit source]

I don't think sloths make a lot of noise.
—Ren, in response to Nora Valkrie's suggestion for a secret signal

The Emerald Forest[edit | edit source]

I still don't think that's what a sloth sounds like.
—Ren, after Nora uses the secret signal to communicate

Players and Pieces[edit | edit source]

Nora... Please... Don't ever do that again.
—Ren, on Nora's decision to ride on an Ursa

Jaunedice[edit | edit source]

She's been having this recurring dream for nearly a month now.
—Ren, after Nora finishes her story

Volume 2[edit | edit source]

Welcome to Beacon[edit | edit source]

Thank you!
—Ren, to Neptune Vasilias in response to the latter's query, "Uh, aren't libraries for reading?"

Burning the Candle[edit | edit source]

And I, you.
—Ren, to Jaune Arc regarding their level of "brothership"
Jaune, what is this all about?
—Ren, asking why Jaune is acting out of the ordinary

Dance Dance Infiltration[edit | edit source]

Wait, what is happening?
—Ren, expressing confusion toward Nora Valkyrie at the dance

Breach[edit | edit source]

Team RWBY has always performed exceptionally in the field. We should be focusing on our own mission.
—Ren, reassuring Jaune

Volume 3[edit | edit source]

New Challengers...[edit | edit source]

Sure, why not...
—Ren, when Jaune tells him to distract May Zedong
How do I bring a flower?
—Ren, about "Flower Power"

PvP[edit | edit source]

It wasn't alone.
—Ren to Coco Adel, on how the Nevermore made it past Vale's defenses

Battle of Beacon[edit | edit source]

—Ren, identifying the new Grimm

End of the Beginning[edit | edit source]

The journey will be perilous, and whether we'll find answers at the end is entirely uncertain.
—Ren, to Ruby

Volume 4[edit | edit source]

The Next Step[edit | edit source]

But 'junior' isn't a color.
—Ren, to Nora
Well, I suppose we don't have to grow out of everything.
—Ren, about Jaune's Pumpkin Pete hoodie
He certainly does.
—Ren, commenting on Jaune cleaning up nicely

Remembrance[edit | edit source]

We should go. It's not safe here.
—Ren, disagreeing with the suggestion to bury the Dying Huntsman's body

Tipping Point[edit | edit source]

You might think of it as Anima's Mountain Glenn, had it never been completed. Years ago, the richest members of Mistral were unhappy with how the Kingdom was being run.
—Ren, talking about Oniyuri to his team
Frustrated with the council, they pooled their resources together to build their own city, with their own laws. They hoped that one day, it could maybe even become its own Kingdom. Many thought it would be the future.
—Ren, talking about Oniyuri to his team
I know my parents did.
—Ren, mentioning his parents to his team for the first time

Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back[edit | edit source]

We're not going to find anything! We just have to press on!
—Ren, to Ruby's suggestion to scavenge for medicine

Kuroyuri[edit | edit source]

We have to be brave.
—Young Ren to Young Nora, hiding together during Kuroyuri's destruction
We never get the easy path, do we?
—Ren to Nora, as they hike the mountain
—Ren, realizing that the Nuckelavee is heading again to Kuroyuri, where Qrow, Jaune and Ruby are

No Safe Haven[edit | edit source]

For myself.
—Ren, as he decapitates the Nuckelavee

Volume 5[edit | edit source]

Rest and Resolutions[edit | edit source]

Well that embarrassment, that desire to go back and tell yourself not to be so stupid, that just proves you're not the same person you used to be. You're smarter, you're kinder, you're stronger, and you're not done growing yet. None of us are.
—Ren to friends, about their growth

Volume 6[edit | edit source]

Uncovered[edit | edit source]

Atlas may be the safest kingdom we have at the moment, but their borders are closed. General Ironwood called everyone back.
—Ren to his friends about the situations starting to Atlas

The Grimm Reaper[edit | edit source]

The two nations worked together to create a hybrid city. While it falls under Mistral domain, Atlas keeps a military presence here to help keep the people safe and keep trade between the two nations steady.
—Ren to friends, explaining about Argus

Dead End[edit | edit source]

I think it would be best if we had some time to ourselves.
—Ren to Team RWBY, after finding out the truth

Volume 7[edit | edit source]

The Greatest Kingdom[edit | edit source]

Maybe Atlas isn't as safe as we thought.
—Ren, to everyone about Atlas

Pomp and Circumstance[edit | edit source]

True, but we can also keep training and improving by helping where we can.
—Ren, in regards to taking Huntsmen missions

A Night Off[edit | edit source]

I understand Weiss' point though. A victory party does seem a bit premature.
—Ren, about Weiss and her opinion about a victory party
We spent so much time worrying about how Ironwood will react to the truth about her, but have any of us considered how we're even going to beat her if we manage to work past that?
—Ren, to Ruby and Nora
We should be training right now.
—Ren, about having a night off
You know I've... never... been really good with talking.
—Ren, to Nora after their argument

The Enemy of Trust[edit | edit source]

We weren't ready to become Huntsmen.
—Ren, after losing the fight against Neopolitan
Then why aren't we holding the Relic? Now Salem has the Lamp, Ironwood has the Staff, and we have NOTHING!
—Ren, after Nora's rebuttal

Volume 8[edit | edit source]

Divide[edit | edit source]

There are people here who need us right now. That’s something we can actually do.
—Ren, about evacuating Mantle

Refuge[edit | edit source]

I don’t need a pep talk. I need to focus.
—Ren, cutting Jaune off while he's using his semblance
Guys, we’re not finished.
—Ren, after Yang's party clears the local Grimm
Give him back!
—Ren, after The Hound captures Oscar

Fault[edit | edit source]

I did, before I had to cut myself loose to help you guys.
—Ren, about having to let the Hound escape to rescue Jaune and Yang
Are you kidding?! We don’t know the first thing about being Huntsmen. We clearly weren’t ready.
—Ren arguing with Yang
And then we lost it! And after that, when we had to make real decisions, we got every single one wrong.
—Ren, about their actions since arriving in Atlas
How could they possibly be worse? We are stuck out here while Salem has the Lamp and Oscar. We’ve got no plan, no army.
—Ren, arguing with Yang
And by keeping her from opening the vault for Ironwood, we’re just trapping the whole city for Salem! People are going to die. Because of us.
—Ren, to Yang
I’m just saying what nobody else wants to. We’re in way over our heads, Ruby is barely more than a kid, I’m just an orphan from the middle of nowhere.
—Ren, to Yang
You cheated your way into Beacon!
—Ren, to Jaune

About Ren[edit | edit source]

Yeah, turns out Ren gets real deep when he feels like talking.
—Ruby, after Ren gives a speech
Oh, and of course Ren is- um.. I don’t know what he is. Every time I think the two of us are making progress, he… (sighs) We’ve been together our whole lives but I feel like I understand him less now than ever. And I don’t know if that’s his fault or mine.
