"Yellow" Trailer

Strawberry Sunrise, no ice. Oh, and one of those little umbrellas.
—Yang, to the bartender
Aren't you a little old to have a name like "Junior"?
—Yang, teasing Junior Xiong
Instead of "sweetheart", you can just call me "sir"!
—Yang, interrogating Junior

Volume 1

Ruby Rose

Oh, I can't believe my baby sister is going to Beacon with me! This is the best day ever!
—Yang, after learning about Ruby Rose's early entry to Beacon Academy
Who's that? (My name is Glynda Goodwitch) Oh.
—Yang, talking to herself during Glynda Goodwitch's introduction

The Shining Beacon

Why can't you just swoon over your own weapon? Aren't you happy with it?
—Yang, talking to Ruby about her love for weapons
Well... (fast voice) actually, my friends are here now, gotta go, bye!
—Yang, leaving Ruby behind

The Shining Beacon, Pt.2

Oh my god, you really exploded.
—Yang, after Weiss Schnee confronts Ruby in the assembly hall
There's no such thing as negative friends. You just made one friend and one enemy!
—Yang, attempting to console Ruby
Yeah, this girl's a lost cause.
—Yang, ready to give up on making friends with Blake Belladonna

The First Step

Having some trouble there, lady-killer?
—Yang, after Jaune Arc's failed attempts at flirting
"Snow Angel" probably wasn't the best start.
—Yang, explaining where Jaune went wrong with Weiss

The First Step, Pt.2

Nailed it!
—Yang, after strategically landing

The Emerald Forest

(rustling in the bushes) Ruby, is that you? (low growling) Nope.
—Yang, after finding a pair of Ursai in the forest
You monsters!!!
—Yang, reacting to losing some strands of her hair in battle
I could've taken him.
—Yang, after Blake kills an Ursa she was facing down

The Emerald Forest, Pt.2

How about a cute little pony?!
—Yang, suggesting a relic
Some girl is in trouble!
—Yang, hearing Jaune's screams

Players and Pieces

I can't take it anymore! Could everyone just chill out for two seconds before something CRAZY happens again?!
—Yang, after seeing a series of strange events
Great, the gang's all here. Now we can all die together.
—Yang, after seeing Pyrrha Nikos fall right in front of her, completing the group of eight
I! Hope! You're! Hungry!!!
—Yang, shooting into the Nevermore's mouth
Well... that was a thing.
—Yang, after the Nevermore's death

The Badge and The Burden

—Yang, to Weiss' inquiry to her actions
—Yang, cheering with Blake
Maybe we should ditch some of our stuff.
—Yang, talking about how cramped their room is

The Badge and The Burden, Pt.2

Goooo, Weiss!!
—Yang, cheering on Weiss


It must be hard to be a Faunus.
—Yang, sympathizing with Velvet Scarlatina

The Stray

Are you sure you didn't hit your head? (Blake Hits Her) Oh, I'm Yang.
—Yang introducing herself to Penny Polendina
Maybe she is, maybe she isn't. Either way, she's missing, and we've gotta find her.
—Yang, being concerned about Blake

Black and White

What cat ears? She wears a... bow...
—Yang, realizing that Blake is a Faunus

Volume 2

Best Day Ever

I always kick my semester off with a "Yang"!
—Yang, making a pun

Welcome to Beacon

Pretty sneaky, sis, but you just activated my trap card!
—Yang, to Ruby during the card game
Trap card. Your armies have been destroyed.
—Yang, after defeating Weiss' forces
Ozpin told us not to worry. Between the police and the Huntsmen, I'm sure they can handle it.
—Yang, reassuring Blake
YES! I love it when you're feisty!
—Yang, regarding Blake

A Minor Hiccup

Hey, we've got a plan! That's... moderately serious.
—Yang, reassuring Weiss

Painting the Town...

Guess who's back!
—Yang, to everyone in Junior's Club
No, it just wasn't very good.
—Yang, on Weiss' pun


And THAT is why people call you the Ice Queen.
—Yang, to Weiss

Burning the Candle

I still want to know what happened to my mother and why she left me, but I will never let that search control me.
—Yang, to Blake
You can't even stop me!
—Yang, to Blake

Dance Dance Infiltration

Tomorrow it's back to work.
—Yang, to Ruby

Field Trip

Oh, he does stuff like this all the time!
—Yang, to Blake and Weiss

Search and Destroy

I'm a thrill-seeker. I want to travel around the world and get wrapped up in as many crazy adventures as I can. And if I help people along the way, then that's even better. It's a win-win, y'know?
—Yang, to Bartholomew Oobleck on why she wants to become a Huntress
We all know why we're here... right?
—Yang, to Weiss and Blake

Mountain Glenn

At least you two have something that drives you. I've just always, gone with the flow, you know.
—Yang, to Weiss and Blake
I want a life where I don't know what tomorrow will bring. And that will be a good thing.
—Yang, regarding her future


Yay... teamwork, camaraderie, good guys, go team, alright, good job... So what now?
—Yang, celebrating victory over Roman and the Grimm

Volume 3

Round One

Yeah, we're going to kick some butt!
—Yang on the Vytal Festival tournament

Never Miss a Beat

Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
—Yang to Neon Katt


You better not go easy on me.
—Yang to Mercury
Better luck next time.
—Yang to Mercury
That's what you get, you little—
—Yang to Mercury

Beginning of the End

You don't understand! He attacked me, I swear!
—Yang protesting her innocence


You guys believe me, right?
—Yang, to the rest of her team
—Yang, when Blake hesitates to believe her story
I saw my mom. I was in a lot of trouble. Took a pretty hard hit. But when I came to, the person attacking me was gone. And I thought I saw... her. Her sword, like the one in you and dad's old picture.
—Yang, telling Qrow about the time she saw Raven

Heroes and Monsters

Get away from her!
—Yang, when Adam Taurus hurts Blake

End of the Beginning

It's all gone. The school, Penny, Pyrrha, and...
—Yang, lamenting the loss of Beacon, Penny, Pyrrha and her arm
And Blake ran! Sun saw her go. After we got to the city, she just... ran!
—Yang, on Blake
I don't know... and I don't care!
—Yang, on why Blake left
Sometimes bad things just happen, Ruby!
—Yang, interrupting Ruby
You can do whatever you want. I'm ... gonna lie here.
—Yang, being apathetic
Just leave me alone.
—Yang, asking Ruby to leave

Volume 4

Of Runaways and Stowaways

I uh, I'm not feeling too great right now. Maybe later?
—Yang to Taiyang Xiao Long, reluctant to accept her "hard-earned gift."
Thanks, Dad.
—Yang before she heads upstairs


And I think I have been through enough to be considered an adult at this point.
—Yang, to her father
Oh my gosh does 'every' father figure have the same three condescending phrases?
—Yang, exasperated with being refuted by Tai
I lost a part of me. A piece of me is gone and it's never coming back.
—Yang, about her right arm

Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back

I think I'm doing just fine.
—Yang's somewhat snarky self-assessment of her fighting progress
I thought it would be just this huge weight, but it feels... natural. They did a great job with this thing.
—Yang, about her robotic arm

Volume 5

Welcome to Haven

I'm, uh, looking for someone.
—Her response when asked what she was doing out in the middle of nowhere

Lighting the Fire

You know that I searched for you. I spent years looking for you.
—Yang about her search for Raven
Because we're family.
—Yang, on why Raven should help her find Ruby
You can spout off whatever you want, but nothing is going to keep me from my sister.
—Yang about her determination to find Ruby
I've missed you, too.
—Yang, reunited with Weiss

Known by its Song

Don't you dare talk about my family like that!
—Yang to Raven Branwen
You don't know the first thing about my teammates! About me! You were never there! You LEFT US!! Why?
—Yang to Raven Branwen
I love you.
—Yang to Ruby Rose

Rest and Resolutions

It's not a replacement for the real thing, but I'll make sure to make good use of it.
—Yang to the gathered friends, about her cybernetic arm
Easy there, Vomit Boy. I believe in you.
—Yang to Jaune, bringing back an old nickname
I may have been a little too gung-ho from time to time.
—Yang, reflecting on who she was at Beacon
But, if we're going to help, if we're going to keep risking our lives, no more lies. No more half-truths.
—Yang to Ozpin, about his keeping secrets

Alone Together

Yeah, well, she made her choice.
—Yang to Ruby and Weiss, on wishing Blake were with them
Why would I want her here?
—Yang to Ruby, about Blake
I'm sorry, I just... I don't think you know what it's like to be left. You have a giant family, recitals to perform at, dinners to attend. I didn't have any of that. My mom left me. Ruby's mom left too. Tai was always busy with school and Ruby couldn't even talk yet. I had to pick up the pieces. I had to keep things together. Alone.
—Yang to Weiss, on her childhood
No one blamed her for anything! If she had just talked to us, she would've known that! How could I be there for her if she doesn't let me? What if I needed her here for me?
—Yang to Weiss, before shedding tears

Haven's Fate

You're right. I don't know you. I only know the Raven dad told me about. She was troubled, and complicated, but she fought for what she believed in, whether it was her team or her tribe! Did you kill her too?
—Yang about the Raven she knows from Taiyang
Oh, shut up!! You don't know the first thing about strength! You turn your back on people, you run away when things get too hard, you put others in harm's way instead of yourself!! You might be powerful, but that doesn't make you strong.
—Yang, refuting Raven's claims about her strength
Yeah, I'm scared. But I'm still standing here! I'm not like you, I won't run, which is why you're going to give me the Relic.
—Yang to Raven

Volume 6

Argus Limited

I'm fine. We're gonna be fine. It's just gonna be a bit before things are back to normal. But... I am glad we're all back together.
—Yang to Blake


Look, we're supposed to be in this together. You can trust us! We're not gonna turn our backs on you.
—Yang to Ozpin

The Coming Storm

I was just seeing things. I'm sorry. I still get flashes from that night.
—Yang to Blake
Do you think Adam's still out there?
—Yang to Blake, about Adam

Alone in the Woods

We can't quit until the lamp is safe.
—Yang to everyone

The Lady in the Shoe

It's okay. Catch your breath for a second. I can hold him off.
—Yang, to Blake before fighting Adam
Leave. Us. Alone. This is your last chance.
—Yang, to Adam

Seeing Red

Did she make that promise to you? Or to the person you were pretending to be?
—Yang, questioning Adam's relationship with Blake
I may not be faster... but I'm smarter.
—Yang, to Adam
I know you won't.
—Yang, comforting Blake after their battle against Adam

Volume 7

Worst Case Scenario

Do you… (loud exhale) Do you think we should've told Ironwood about Salem, before he put so much on the line for Amity?
—Yang, questioning Blake about if they should tell Ironwood the truth
He is. Stopping the trucks alerted the Ace-Ops. We don't have long before they arrive, so please listen to us. You need to know the truth.
—Yang, to Robyn


But you're Huntsmen and Huntresses! You can't just back down from a fight!
—Yang, to Ace Operatives

With Friends Like These

It's not worth it, Blake. They're just following orders now.
—Yang, to Blake about how the Ace-Ops rather stay loyal to Ironwood instead of betraying him

Volume 8


What you're saying is it can't be done. It's pointless. And even if you got the message out, there's no guarantee help would come.
—Yang, disagreeing with Ruby about finishing Amity Communciation Tower


Yeah, I'm sure you would. But the people up top have decided you're not worth the trouble. The Faunus, on the other hand, have been willing to lend all the help they can. Regardless of whether or not you deserve it.
—Yang, to the Disgruntled Grandmother


I'm not going to pretend like we did everything perfectly, but if we'd done nothing, things would be even worse than they are now.
—Yang, to Ren


Let's do what we do best; charge blindly into danger.
—Yang, to Jaune and Ren
Why do you?! All of this endless death, because something bad happened to you once upon a time? Nobody gets a fairy-tale ending. Everything I've lost, every person I've lost is because of you!
—Yang, berating Salem


You can't be serious. You want us to work with her?
—Yang, to Oscar about Emerald
She is part of the reason I have this. I'm not going to just forgive her. Everything that happened at Beacon... She lied to us, tricked us. She is dangerous.
—Yang, about Emerald and the Battle of Beacon
I missed you too.
—Yang, to Ruby when reuniting with her


You know, that giant hound kicked us around like we were nothing. But Blake said you and Schnee's managed to take it down. Still having to one-up your big sis, huh?
—Yang, to Ruby about the Hound
You were being optimistic. Look, blind optimism isn't great, but no optimism means we already lost. We need hope. We need to take risks.
—Yang, to Ruby
It still got a warning out. Ruby, they're not called sure things, they're called risks, and in case you didn't notice, my plan for Mantle didn't work either. But we got Oscar back, and did a lot more that was never in the plan.
—Yang, to Ruby


Let's try the quick version. Can you make a bunch of doorways in Atlas that open at a single spot in Vacuo?
—To Ambrosius

About Yang

You're Yang Xiao Long, my sunny little dragon. You can do whatever you put your mind to.
—Taiyang giving faith and encouragement to Yang
You've always been one to burn brighter than everyone else, whether it was with your smile, or, well, I remember your first haircut.
—Taiyang, to Yang
You were patient, determined and strong enough to make your dream a reality. Well done, Yang.
—Raven praising her daughter
You could spout off what you want, but NOTHING is going to keep me from my sister.
—Yang to Raven, about herself
Well, aren't you stubborn.
—Raven, calling the kettle black
...and Yang was "strength".
—Blake to Sun, on what word Yang personifies in "Necessary Sacrifice"
Doesn't matter. I warned her. She made her choice.
—Raven, stating what place Yang has in her future plans
