Volume 7

Ace Operatives

The connecting ice tunnels seem clear. We should be approaching the actual mine any minute now.
—Vine, informing Clover of the situation

Pomp and Circumstance

That's odd. I don't smell meat.
—Vine, not understanding Marrow's sense of humor
I'd like to remind you all that the real mission here is ensuring the successful launch of the communications tower.
—Vine, to everyone


Have you ever thought about extending your Aura?
—Vine, giving some advice to Jaune

With Friends Like These

Please. Don't make this difficult.
—Vine, to Yang and Blake during the battle
If you come peacefully, we won't hurt you.
—Vine, to Yang and Blake
Are you telling me? Or yourself?
—Vine, to Elm on fighting Yang and Blake

Volume 8


We have all said some things we regret, but please, hear me out. I know you thought you were doing the right thing when you left with the Maiden power, but Salem is here now. Things have changed.
—Vine, to Penny
I thought you were supposed to protect the people, not hurt them.
—Vine, to Penny about her purpose


Grimm don't take prisoners.
—Vine, to Yang's Group about Oscar being captured by Salem
That creature causes more damage every minute. We cannot wait.
—Vine, to Yang about Monstra


If this is what gets the children to cooperate, then it's worth it.
—Vine, to Marrow


Just... retracing the steps that led us here.
—Vine, to Harriet


I'm no longer certain this is the most logical course of action.
—Vine, to Harriet about sending the payload on Mantle
No, I don't. Harriet, the general is no longer in charge. Ruby and the others have used the Staff. Atlas is falling, but its people will be safe. Unless you--
—Vine, to Harriet before she angrily interrupts
Then perhaps Clover was wrong too.
—Vine, to Harriet about Clover
Harriet, you are not the only one--
—Vine, to Harriet before they were interrupted by another ship piloted by Robyn

The Final Word

I can… if it means saving all my friends.
—Vine's last words to Elm before he sacrifices his life to save his friends

RWBY: Amity Arena

The Ace Ops don't really have a "partner" concept, but operatives Vine and Elm tend to pair up together. This may be due to the amazing synergy between their plant-like Semblances. Vine's ivy like arms, and Elm's root like feet give the duo the flexibility as well as the steadfastness to combat any situation.
