Volume 1

The Shining Beacon

What are you doing?! Do you have any idea of the damage you could have caused?!
—Weiss, to Ruby Rose after having her luggage knocked over
Aren't you a little young to be attending Beacon?
—Weiss, to Ruby
What are you, brain dead? Dust! Fire, water, lightning, energy!
—Weiss, lecturing Ruby on Dust
What? How dare!... The nerve of... Ugh!
—Weiss, storming off after Blake Belladonna insults her family's company

The Shining Beacon, Pt.2

The Schnee Dust Company is not responsible for any injuries or damages sustained while operating a Schnee Dust Company product. Although not mandatory, the Schnee Family highly encourages their customers to read and familiarize themselves with this easy-to-follow guide to Dust application and practice in the field.
—Weiss, explaining to Ruby the purpose of the "Dust for Dummies" pamphlet
You really want to start making things up to me? Read this and don't ever speak to me again!
—Weiss, suggesting to Ruby that she read a "Dust for Dummies" pamphlet
She's a hazard to my health!
—Weiss, telling Yang Xiao Long why she has a problem with Ruby
Yeah! And we can paint our nails and try out clothes and talk about cute boys like tall, blond and... scraggly over there.
—Weiss, responding to Ruby's offer to go shopping

The First Step

This will be perfect! The smartest girl in class combined with the strongest girl in class! Together we will be unstoppable! I can see it now - we'll be popular, we'll be celebrities, we'll get perfect grades! Nothing could come between us now!
—Weiss' internal monologue, on her plans after partnering with Pyrrha Nikos
She's on the cover of every Pumpkin Pete's Marshmallow Flakes box!
—Weiss, yelling at Jaune Arc after getting annoyed by his lack of knowledge about Pyrrha

The First Step, Pt.2

By no means does this make us friends.
—Weiss, resigning to accept Ruby as her teammate
I will not let my mission be delayed because you're too slow! I swear, if I get a bad grade because of your- what the?!
—Weiss, complaining about being interrupted by Ruby
You may be fast, but you still excel at wasting time!
—Weiss, to Ruby, who just ran ahead

The Emerald Forest

Remember your training Weiss. Head up, shoulders back, right foot forward - not that forward! - slow your breathing, wait for the right time to strike, and... Now!
—Weiss, preparing to attack a Beowolf
You attacked out of turn! I could've killed you!
—Weiss, complaining about Ruby's fighting style
Well, congratulations on being the strongest child to sneak your way into Beacon. Bravo!
—Weiss, to Ruby

The Emerald Forest, Pt.2

I know exactly where we're going! We're going... to... the forest temple!
—Weiss, explaining to Ruby how she is not lost
I'm not perfect! Not yet. But I'm still leagues better than you.
—Weiss, showing her humility to Ruby

Players and Pieces

You are so childish. And dim-witted, and hyperactive, and don't even get me started on your fighting style. And I suppose, I can be a bit... difficult... but if we're going to do this, we're going to have to do this together. So if you quit trying to show off, I'll be... nicer.
—Weiss, reconciling with Ruby
You're fine.
—Weiss, to Ruby

The Badge and The Burden

What in the world is wrong with you?
—Weiss, to Ruby after team leader woke her up
What!? Did you say nine o'clock? It's eight fifty-five, you dunce!
—Weiss, on Ruby's time management skills

The Badge and The Burden, Pt.2

What's wrong with me? What's wrong with you!? You're supposed to be leader! All you've been so far is a nuisance!
—Weiss, questioning Ruby's leadership
(I thought you believed in acting as a team) Not a team led by you. I've studied, and trained, and quite frankly, I deserve better.
—Weiss, giving Ruby a verbal slap across the face
Ozpin made a mistake...
—Weiss, believing that Ruby as a leader was a mistake
So, you would just blindly accept his decision, even after seeing how exceptional I am?
—Weiss, arguing with Peter Port
(I see a girl before me who has spent her entire life getting exactly what she wanted) That's not even remotely true! Well... not entirely true.
—Weiss, responding to Peter Port's criticism of her
Good luck studying. That's wrong by the way!
—Weiss, finally accepting Ruby as a leader
I've always wanted bunk beds as a kid.
—Weiss, telling Ruby about what she wanted as a kid

Jaunedice, Pt.2

The battle at Fort Castle!
—Weiss, answering Bartholomew Oobleck's question

Forever Fall, Pt.2

No, you dunce! It means she has control over magnetism!
—Weiss, explaining Pyrrha's Semblance to Ruby

The Stray

It's a combat skirt!
—Weiss, responding to Blake's snark about wearing a dress
I'm a victim! You want to know why I despise the White Fang? Why I don't particularly trust the Faunus? It's because they've been in war with my family for years. War as in actual bloodshed. My grandfather's company has had a target painted across its back for as long as I can remember. And ever since I was a child, I've watched family, friends disappear. Board members... executed. An entire train car full of Dust stolen. And every day, my father would come home furious. And that made for a very difficult childhood.
—Weiss, on why she despises the White Fang
No! You want to know why I despise the White Fang? It's because they are a bunch of liars, thieves, and murderers!
—Weiss, on the White Fang
A member of the White Fang! Right underneath our noses!
—Weiss, on Blake's true self

Black and White

...the innocent never run, Yang.
—Weiss, about Blake running away
Stop! Do you have any idea of how long we've been searching for you? Twelve hours. That means I've had twelve hours to think about this. And in that twelve hours, I've decided...I don't care.
—Weiss, telling Blake she doesn't care about her past
I don't want to hear it. I only want to know the next time that something this big comes up, you come to your teammates. And not some... someone else.
—Weiss, showing her support to Blake
I'm still not quite sure about how I feel about you!
—Weiss, to Sun Wukong

Volume 2

Best Day Ever

Did you steal my binder?
—Weiss, accusing Ruby of taking her binder

Welcome to Beacon

Fear the almighty power of my forces! Cower as they pillage your homes, and weep as they take your children from your very arms!
—Weiss, during the card game
I hate this game of emotions we play.
—Weiss, after her armies are destroyed by Yang
Shut up don't touch me!
—Weiss' response to Ruby hugging her, in spite of hugging Ruby back.

A Minor Hiccup

No, no, no, yes.
—Weiss, on Jaune's date invitation

Painting the Town...

Yeah, I guess she really made our plans... fall apart!
—Weiss, making a pun after the battle


All my life, boys have only cared about the perks of my last name. Besides, I already have a date in mind.
—Weiss, to Ruby and Yang

Burning the Candle

Would you... like to accompany me to the dance tomorrow?
—Weiss, to Neptune Vasilias

Dance Dance Infiltration

You said you were embarrassed at first. What made you come talk to me?
—Weiss, questioning Neptune

Field Trip

Are you telling me that this mangy...drooling...mutt is going to wiv with us foweva? Oh yes, he is! Yes, he is!
—Weiss, towards Zwei

Search and Destroy

It's exactly as you said: I'm a Schnee. I have a legacy of honor to uphold. Once I realized I was capable of fighting, there was no longer a question of what I would do with my life. It was my duty.
—Weiss, to Bartholomew on why she wants to become a Huntress

Mountain Glenn

I'm fully aware of what my father has done with the Schnee Dust Company. Since he took control, the business has been operated in a... moral gray area.
—Weiss, regarding the Schnee Dust Company
My father was not the start of our name, and I refuse to let him be the end of it.
—Weiss, regarding her future
It's a job. We all had this romanticized vision of being a Huntress in our heads! But at the end of the day, it's a job to protect the people! And whatever we want, will have to come second.
—Weiss, on the duty of being a huntress


If we don't get extra credit for that, I'm going to be seriously disappointed.
—Weiss, to the rest of Team RWBY
Well...not every story has a neat and tidy ending.
—Weiss, to Ruby

Volume 3

Round One

I will happily represent Team RWBY.
—Weiss, on moving to the doubles round of the Vytal Festival tournament
Do you have anything with a low-salt — Um... Okay
—Weiss, attempting to order at the Shopkeep's noodle stall

New Challengers...

Good luck, Neptune!
—Weiss, wishing Neptune luck in his match
Break his stupid face, NDGO!
—Weiss, after Neptune flirts with Team NDGO
She's here!
—Weiss, after she sees Winter's airship

It's Brawl in the Family

Winter! Winter! I'm so happy to see you! Oh, uh... Your presence honors us.
—Weiss, greeting Winter
Just so you're aware, the bunk beds only look unstable.
—Weiss, talking about their dorm rooms
Teach him respect, Winter!
—Weiss, cheering on Winter as she fights Qrow Branwen

Lessons Learned

I've tried! It's just... It's the one thing I've been having trouble with!
—Weiss, about summoning
It was really good to see you, Winter.
—Weiss, to Winter

Never Miss a Beat

Just remember to keep proper form.
—Weiss, to Yang
Well, seeing as their Kingdom, academy and armed forces are all merged as one, I think we can expect strict, militant fighters with advanced technology and carefully rehearsed strategies.
—Weiss, speculating on the nature of their Atlesian opponents
I may not be singing for a while.
—Weiss, after the match


You're hotheaded, but not ruthless.
—Weiss, to Yang
How can you say something like that? Yang would never lie to us!
—Weiss, when Blake doubts Yang's story

Battle of Beacon

This can't be happening... Penny...
—Weiss, overwhelmed by recent events
Be safe.
—Weiss, to Blake

End of the Beginning

No! 'We' will find them.
—Weiss refusing to let Ruby try to rescue Jaune and Pyrrha alone

Volume 4


I trust him.
Are you asking me if I'd like to sing, or telling me?
—Showing a brief touch of rebellion

Tipping Point

Get. Out. Get out or I'll have security to escort you out.
—Weiss, ordering Henry Marigold to leave the event
Shut up!
—Weiss, snapping at Trophy Wife
You don't have a clue! None of you do! You're all just standing around, talking about nothing: worrying about your hair, your money, your stupid problems that don't mean anything!
—Weiss, scolding the Altesian elite for their arrogance


I said I want to leave. I don't want to stay here anymore. I don't want to stay in Atlas anymore!
—Weiss, about leaving Atlas, to Jacques
I have done nothing but fight to uphold the honor of my family name, a name that you married into!
—Weiss, to Jacques
I'm not siding with anyone. I'm doing what I feel is right, and that does not include wasting my time up here with these clueless people in Atlas. The Schnee family legacy isn't yours to leave. It's mine, and I'll do it as a Huntress.
—Weiss, to Jacques

Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back

Is that why you hate me? Are you jealous of my abilities? Of Winter's?
—Weiss, to Whitley
Klein, I need a favor.
—Weiss, to Klein

Taking Control

I'll always have you.
—Weiss, to Klein

Volume 5

Lighting the Fire

Alright, well subtlety is out.
—Weiss, realizing a discreet escape was no longer feasible
Your mom kidnapped me?!
—Weiss, finding out Raven is Yang's mother
I missed you so much.
—Weiss, reuniting with Yang

Rest and Resolutions

I so did not miss you people.
—Weiss, to everyone

Alone Together

Don't worry. I put in blasphemous amounts of cream and sugar just for you.
—Weiss, to Ruby, while handing her coffee
She will. Yang... You, Ruby, and even Blake are more like family to me than my brother or even my own father. I would do anything for you three, and I'm willing to bet Blake feels the same way. So, when she's ready, I'll be there for her. And I know we're not as close, but... I'm here for you too.
—Weiss, to Yang

The More the Merrier

I am more than a name.
—Weiss, to Vernal

Haven's Fate

N-No! I just remember you being more of the quiet one.
—Weiss, to Blake, after Blake asks if she is hurt
Alright. What's the plan, Ruby?
—Weiss, to Ruby

Volume 6

Argus Limited

Well, I'm glad you're all excited. But I don't think you appreciate the trouble I went through to leave Atlas..
—Weiss, to Ruby


You know, I'm getting real tired of people choosing what's best for me.
—Weiss, to Ozpin about getting tired being told what to do

The Coming Storm

I mean... you heard what Jinn said. If there's no way to kill Salem, then what's the point in all of this?
—Weiss, to Ruby
Sorry, I- I don't know what I'm saying, I'm just really tired and I really, really hate this place. Anything in there?
—Weiss, to Ruby

Alone in the Woods

Last night, I... I couldn't stop thinking - why are we even going to Atlas?
—Weiss, questioning about going to Atlas to Ruby

Our Way

I'm sorry you went through that nightmare. But, I'm glad Yang was there for you in time.
—Weiss, to Blake

Volume 7

The Greatest Kingdom

I'm not so sure. I've never seen our forces deployed so aggressively before. If we land in a stolen ship, there's no way the security team will let us anywhere near Ironwood. They might even take me back to my father.
—Weiss, to everyone about the situation in Atlas

Ace Operatives

Without heating or projected Aura, the cold of Solitas can kill you in a matter of hours.
—Weiss, to her team
We need to play along for a while before we make any major decisions.
—Weiss, to her team about making decisions
(sighs) I wish I could take back the years of pain my family has caused the Faunus and all of my complacency in it.
—Weiss, to Blake and Marrow

Pomp and Circumstance

It was my decision to come here. Just like it was my decision to leave. Or have you forgotten all about that?
—Weiss, to Jacques about her decision to leave Atlas
Not friends. Family.
—Weiss, thinking her team as her new family to her father


Since Beacon, I haven't really had a choice. Father's view of the world no longer matches with mine.
—Weiss, to Winter about their father
It's just… Our kingdom isn't supposed to be like this. Fearful, and withdrawn. We should be opening our borders to help the world, not closing them down.
—Weiss, to Winter
But your destiny was chosen for you, without your input.
—Weiss, to Winter about her decision wasn't her own

Cordially Invited

I still can't believe he won. Robyn was supposed to be the people's champion, wasn't she? (sighs) There's just too many coincidences.
—Weiss, to her team and Oscar

With Friends Like These

This is my home. And I'm not giving it up without a fight.
—Weiss, to Marrow

The Enemy of Trust

We all have to carve out our own way.
—Weiss, to Winter

Volume 8


We're never going to sleep again, I just know it.


Snow Shoe Shipping is an SDC subsidiary, meaning all the drones here report to the company, not the general. The pneumatic tubes allow for Dust refined in the crater to be sent straight up to Atlas. We just need to find the one for the military base.
—Weiss, to Ruby's Group


Don't worry, they're sisters. Sometimes sisters just have very different ideas about what's right.
—To Blake, alluding to Winter
Four versus one? Cowards.
— About the Ace Ops


Go to your room.
—To Whitley


People are dying here, too. Don't you have family in Atlas?
—To May
I know. That's why it means so much to me.
—To Whitley


SDC executives have their own auxiliary power supplies in case of a city-wide blackout. It's extremely unfair, but perhaps now isn't such a bad time for company perks.
—On the SDC
I didn't forget you.
—To Whitley


Trust is a risk.


So we've got people trapped in Atlas and Mantle that we can't evacuate unless we use the Staff which is located inside the Vault. If we open the Vault, Penny terminates. If Ironwood gets wind of any of this, he blows up Mantle.

People enter from Atlas and Mantle on one side... and leave on the other side, with a one-way ticket to Vacuo.
—Weiss' unfortunate mishap
Leave her alone!
—To Cinder

About Weiss

She's the only one making sense around here.
—Ironwood, defending Weiss
After a while, I saw Weiss was defiance.
—Blake to Sun, on what word Weiss personifies in "Necessary Sacrifice"
It figures that a Schnee would be the last one standing, letting all her friends die first.
—Cinder's contempt towards the Atlas elite is projected onto Weiss
