Summary[edit | edit source]
"Save Nora!" consists of three shorts:
- "Bathroom Break" - Jaune Arc urgently needs to use the bathroom, which is occupied by Lie Ren. Jaune writhes in discomfort and tries to play it off as a new fighting technique when Pyrrha Nikos walks by. Nora Valkyrie and Sun Wukong jump in and use the bathroom respectively, before Jaune has a chance to, causing him to lose control in his pants. Jaune gingerly and awkwardly moves away from Pyrrha, muttering about laundry.
- "Save Nora!" - Nora feigns being attacked by a Beowolf, hoping to be saved by Ren, but she keeps getting rescued by other people, first Sun, followed by Yang Xiao Long. Ren eventually comes across Nora tormenting an unfortunate Beowolf and comments that she never ceases to amaze him. Nora takes this as a compliment and enthusiastically hugs the Beowolf, "breaking" it.
- "Upgrade Time" - Junior Detectives Sun and Neptune Vasilias have had little luck catching criminals. They decide to get an "upgrade" and buy a load of equipment, including helmets, riot shields and police motorcycles. When Emerald Sustrai and Mercury Black steal their bikes, Sun and Neptune desperately try to give chase, but they are too weighed down by all their gear.
Transcript[edit | edit source]
In a space of pure whiteness, the giant blocky title and a certain rose emblem drop from the sky to the ground, where the four miniaturized members of Team RWBY pop out from behind it to smile, wave and adopt poses for the audience while an unseen speaker announces the show as: "RWBY CHIBI"!
Jaune Arc waits desperately outside the bathroom door, squirming and groaning with discomfort.
Jaune: Oh, come on, I really have to go!
Ren: (from behind the closed bathroom door) Almost finished. Practice some patience.
Jaune: I don't need to practice patience, Ren, I need to... I need to use the restroom!
Pyrrha Nikos walks up to Jaune.
Pyrrha: Hey Jaune! What are you doing?
Jaune: Oh, hey, Pyrrha! Just, um, doing some new... fighting techniques, that, uh... I invented! (pauses for a moment, then turns to Ren) You're killing me, Ren, I hope you know that. (Ren exits the bathroom) Thank you!
Nora Valkyrie strolls up to the bathroom door.
Nora: Do you mind if I use your bathroom? Ours is broken. I really, really, really, need to go, like for realsies. (before Jaune gives an answer) Thanks Jaune, you're the best! (quickly enters the restroom and shuts the door in Jaune's face as he whimpers)
Pyrrha: That was very nice of you.
Jaune: That's me, Mr. Nice Guy. Oh my... (flops onto the floor and starts rolling side to side on the floor) Think dry thoughts, think dry thoughts, think dry thoughts!
Pyrrha: Is this another one of your fighting moves?
Nora exits the restroom, but Sun Wukong immediately appears and goes for the door before Jaune can react.
Sun: Cool moves, dude! (quickly darts into the bathroom, slamming the door in Jaune's face)
Jaune: NO! (whimpering to himself) Ohh, you can do this, ohh, just a little bit longer, ohh, mommy's special boy! (continues wriggling in pain)
Sun: (abruptly slams the door open, flattening Jaune against the wall) Just had to wash my hands! All yours buddy. (walks off)
Pyrrha: Are you okay? Do you still need to use the restroom?
Jaune: (hugging the wall) No. No, I'm good. (starts sidling up against the wall and moving away from Pyrrha, making damp noises as he moves)
Pyrrha: Would you teach me some of those fighting moves? I've never seen anything like it.
Jaune: Sure, sure, just, uh... Need to do some laundry first...
Jaune gingerly sidesteps away. Pyrrha throws her arms up in frustration.
Nora: Ren, help! I'm being attacked by a vicious monster!
Sun enters the fray with a flying kick, knocking the Beowolf out in a single hit.
Sun: (turning to Nora) Nora! Are you okay?!
Nora: Huh? Oh, yeah, I'm fine. Where is Ren, is he behind you?
Sun: No, it's just me.
Nora: Oh. Okay. Could you move along then? That would be great.
Sun: (confused) Uh... Huh?
Nora: (shooing Sun away) Move it, monkey boy! Go, go, go!
Sun walks off, scowling.
Later, Nora lies apparently incapacitated on the ground while the Beowolf stands over her, wagging its tail idly.
Nora: (dramatically) Oh, won't some brave hero please save me from this deadly Grimm!
Yang Xiao Long comes flying in and knocks the Beowolf out with a punch.
Yang: Here's your hero!
Nora: (frustrated) No, no, no! What are you doing?!
Yang: I'm... Saving you...?
Nora: Do you know how hard it was to find a Beowolf around here?!
Yang: Pretty easy, I mean they're like, around every corner...?
Nora: Get out of here! You almost ruined everything!
Yang: (walking away) You are so weird...
Some time later, Nora struggles with the Beowolf, pulling its tail as it futilely attempts to escape from her.
Nora: Oh no, I'm helpless, and in danger! (to the Beowolf) I'm not done with you yet! Bad Grimm, bad Grimm!
Ren walks over and observes the scene for a moment.
Ren: What are you doing?
Nora: Oh, Ren, finally! I'm fighting for my life, obviously!
Ren: It looks like you have him pretty well under control. (laughs) You never cease to amaze me, Nora. (walks away)
Nora: No, wait, come back! What's a girl gotta do to get rescued around here? Wait, did he say I'm "amazing"?! (exultantly) Ren thinks I'm amazing!
Overjoyed, Nora hugs the Beowolf's arm tight, and the sound of bones cracking is heard. The Beowolf helplessly flops to the ground and goes limp.
Nora: Whoops. I broke another one.
A junior detective badge with Sun and Neptune's mustached faces on it zooms in, then out, in the middle of the screen.
Neptune: Junior detectives!
Outside Beacon Academy, Neptune sits forlornly on the sidewalk while Sun paces back and forth in contemplation.
Sun: We haven't caught any perps in a while!
Neptune: Maybe we've just lost our edge.
Sun: (perking up, having an idea) You thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?!
In unison, the pair jump up and enthusiastically turn to face each other.
Neptune: On the count of three.
Neptune and Sun: One, two, three!
Neptune: (simultaneously) Musical!
Sun: (simultaneously) Upgrade time!
Neptune: Yeah, upgrades. Those sound good.
Over upbeat 80s-style music, Sun and Neptune are seen exiting a Police Surplus store, Sun casually twirling a pair of gold handcuffs around his finger and Neptune spinning a gold baton in his hand. From inside the store, the Shopkeep waves cheerily at the departing customers with a handful of money.
Sun and Neptune then exit an Army Surplus store, clad in flak jackets and carrying riot shields, wearing multiple army helmets on each of their heads. The Shopkeep jubilantly waves at them, both hands full of banknotes.
Sun and Neptune then leave a motorcycle store named Easy Riders, wheeling out two newly-bought motorcycles, while the Shopkeep swims in a huge pile of money behind them.
Next to their bikes, Sun and Neptune stand outfitted with all of their newly-purchased equipment, ridiculously bogged down and struggling under the collective weight.
Sun: Alright, you ready?
Neptune: Let's kick some butt!
Neptune: Get back here!
Sun: Junior detectives, roll out!
Both of them struggle to give chase, but Sun manages to make no more than a couple steps and Neptune falls flat on his face.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The motorcycles bought by Sun and Neptune have the initials "V.P.D." written on them, which stands for Vale Police Department.
- The song that plays when Sun and Neptune start buying upgraded equipment is named "Junior Detectives - Upgrade Time". Composer Alex Abraham had released the track on his SoundCloud for free public streaming.
- Nora's line "I broke another one" is a reference to "Players and Pieces" when she "broke" the Ursa she was riding.
