Overview Image Gallery

RWBY: World of Remnant was an American mini-series created by Monty Oum and produced by Rooster Teeth Productions, documenting various areas, beings, and objects in Remnant, the world in which RWBY is set.


World of Remnant episodes varied in length, but are on the whole much shorter than the average RWBY episode, at around 2–4 minutes in length.

Individual episodes of the series provided information on specific subjects within the RWBY universe, with narrative exposition accompanied by illustrative visuals. The art style of World of Remnant is heavily stylized and mostly rendered in 2D as compared to the 3D look of the main series.

The episodes accompanying Volume 2 were narrated by Salem (at the time known as the Mysterious Narrator). The episodes accompanying Volume 3 were narrated by Ozpin and those released with Volume 4 are narrated by Qrow Branwen.[1] Various characters from the main series also occasionally appeared as silhouettes in the videos.


The first set of World of Remnant episodes aired on an irregular release schedule concurrent with RWBY Volume 2's original run. World of Remnant episodes aired during the main series' "off-weeks" when the main series did not have a new episode. These weeks followed the release of the episodes "Painting the Town...", "Dance Dance Infiltration" and "Mountain Glenn". Volume 2 concluded with a total of four episodes, the last of which was exclusive to the Volume 2 DVD and Blu-ray releases.[2]

The fifth World of Remnant episode was released several weeks prior to the premiere of RWBY Volume 3. In a similar fashion to the previous year, subsequent episodes aired after every third episode of RWBY.

  • On March 29th, 2016, series writer and director Kerry Shawcross asked fans to give their ideas for future RWBY: World of Remnant episodes.[3]
  • Starting with February 8th, 2020, between Volumes 7 and 8, Rooster Teeth started re-releasing episodes on their new animation channel. The only difference is the new thumbnails.
