    I love that trailer. It's sad how much I can relate to the song thouhgt. However Weiss is one of my favorites. She's simply so much like me on the sass level :P

    SPOILER INCOMING!!!

    If you haven't watched any of Season 3 so far, stop reading now and skip this. It could spoil some very interessting points for you.


    I have a theory about this fight.

    So, as in Season 3, Ep.4 mentioned, the Schnee's are able to summon their defeated foes to fight alongside them and that their powers are handed down their bloodline. We see Weiss trying to summon something and failing, but managing to at least spawn the weapon of this badass knight.


    So my theory is different to what I read a lot of times. This is not a dream or fantasy Weiss has made up in her mind how she got the scar on her eye.

    But rather it actually is a sparing match somewhere in the Schnee Mansion, but instead of her sparing partner, its the one of her older sister, Winter, which is a stronger huntress at that point than Weiss' has been. Thats the reason her aura depleted, since the sparing partner is tuned to the strength of the opponent, which would otherwise be Winter. Since we know that only after the aura of a fighter is depleted they are able to be hurt physically, it would make much sense that this Knight, tuned to Winters strength, was way too strong for Weiss in her current state of training. After Weiss took the hit, she seems to straighten up, pulling all her strength together and beating the Knight in a final effort.


    That would only make sense if Weiss actually got a good reason to fight this knight, but wonder, there is.


    The reason is simple, she wanted recognition. She stated to her team that her childhood was very hard, due to the attacks the White Fang commited on the Schnee Dust company and her dad coming home every day furious, making her childhood really hard, maybe even nightmarish.

    So, to get the attention she so strongly wanted from her dad, maybe even her sister, she decided to do something pretty stupid and fight the sparring partner of Winter, who would be easily capable of seriously injuring her.



    I don't have a clue where to put this, I'm considering posting this under the respective Ep. aswell, because I'd love some feedback on this.


    Thanks for reading!

    lol Ditz...its a combat skirt

    my theory on the trailer smiley7.gif

    Weiss found out she could fight and went to combat school in secret. Or trained herself in secret. Either way it wouldn't have been easy to have/keep friends. Her family just saw her as a spoiled rich kid and left her supervised by just servants.

    Her family finally finds out after the big envelope from beacon arrives in the mail. They don't know how well she fights so they send one of their prototypes for atlas to show Weiss how weak she is and can't be a huntress

      Well, seeing as how Winter is in the military I doubt it's either one...

    Weiss became my favorite as I watched both seasons/volumes, just now watching the trailers and now I love her even more. I really hope she gets some deep development in the series!

  • JaseAlex

    So, in Volume 2 episode 6: Jaune comments about how great Weiss is and says " and have you ever herd her sing?" Implying that he has, and she is talented. Also we have Weiss stating that "Once she knew she could fight, she felt obligated" and that if she "took a job in Atlas, nothing would change." So we have, that Weiss could probably have made a career as a singer in Atlas; but chose to fly to the continent of Vytal to attend Beacon and become a Huntress instead. Something about the way this trailer goes, looks like she had to defeat the Armor suit to earn a right passage to attend Beacon. Burdened by a royal test. From the comflicted looks in the elevator to the top of the CTT she may have had to fight her way off the path the Schnee family chose, in order to choose this path for herself. Respect for Weiss; and as always, I could be wrong, but time will tell.

    When one stops to think about it, Weiss may be fighting the hardest enemy out of the trailers. Ruby has the Beowolves but they are pretty squishy, Blake does fight the Spider Droid but Adam is there to help her and Yang just busts up a club (potential pun alert). I think we've yet to see all Weiss it truly capable of and I get the feeling both from this trailer and her fight with the White Fang guy in Season 2 that Weiss may actually hold back on purpose sometimes at the cost of her own safety.

    I love her determination, despite not being especially combat-gifted.

  • DylanSabatos

    This is my theory about Weiss and her trailer. I think that the giant armored thing is sparring dummy that her father had bought her for training. But then her father just forced her to train without end and was never truly able to form friends. This theory of mine would explain why she is so bitter and why she didn't want to talk to her father and sister when she snuck the info the RWBY team needed. Maybe she snuck away from home to join Beacon and since she now has friends she feels like she has more freedoms. I'm not sure though and I would really like to learn more about Weiss. I feel that out of team RWBY we know so little about her.

    Watching this again and listening to the lyrics I see how it reflects the image perfectly. The best lyrics to me are a combination of universal and personal messages, something everyone can interpret trough their own mindset. This video beautifully tells a story of Weiss’s personality, actions and past. Can’t wait to see how her story continues!

    Thanks AsherPhoenix, That is the same viewpoint I have with the exception of how the suit of armor, umm.. dies? As I could be wrong, please just humor these observational comparisons: The stylized explosion into snow-flakes reminds me of how Ruby's GRIM enemies bleed rose petals when she slashes them. We see a sillilar effect when Adam takes out the Quad-Walker in the Black trailer. So, I think how the aromor suit explodes into snow-flakes is because of Weiss's special charged attack.

    What I get from this is, the fight with the armor suit did happen. The singing in front of the huge audiance on the stage appears to be something imagined. I base it on the fact that no-one has made reference to Weiss as a singer, thus far. However, she does have a visable scar. Also, we seldom see the softer side of Weiss's character. So, this appears to be a part of herself that she likes to keep hidden. I could also be wrong about that too, so this viewpoint is subject to change.

    just a theory on some of the subtle hints in the video spoiler alert also a reply for andrews997 in the comment

    she must be remembering that fight from before hand cause she already had that scar on her eye when she went up to sing but it was gone before she started to fight. and @AndrewS997 id be more willing to bet that that was training her family had her take of something of the sort because of the fact it was probably made from that dust her family mines (or she turned it to glass when she hit it cause it sure seemed like it was made from glass when it shattered)

  • JaseAlex

    Pre-Volume 2 and there are still Quetions that I hope will be answered. Spoilers, so Read at own risk:
    For Weiss Schnee; I get that we only see the softer side of your personality here in this trailer. I have to wonder if the suit of armor you are fighting isn't of your own creation (the armor you wear to protect your emotional self). When you change your mind completely over a 12 hour period; I imagine there is an internal process taking place simmilar the fight we see in this trailer. What happened to make you so complex? Also, are you a singer, or is that symbolic? If there are answers to these questions that I have missed somewhere in Volume 1 of RWBY please point them out.

    As of this time, these are still mysteries to me.

  • AndrewS997

    I'm just throwing this out there: Could the robot Weiss is fighting be one from the white fang? I mean, I don't see what else would be trying to kill the heir to the Schnee throne. And, it seems like a permanent scar would be a big hit to the "I have to be perfect" Weiss. Also, by the way she fights, it looks like Weiss is defending something here, her family maybe. Again, this seems to fit because they're such a big target for the white fang. I just think that this trailer is very telling. Weiss has inner demons she has to fight. Painful memories of all types. Bad history. Her character is clearly leagues deeper than even what season one showed us.

    This tells a lot about character understanding. Considering how cold and distant Weiss is in the series thus far... we have a lot we have yet to learn. God, it took too long to see how much detail went it to this...even if it may seem simple.

    Knowing Weiss a little now and how she's kinda mean, serious, Cold, and critical all the time looking back at this video to the show i would never think she would could sing and the song is really sad and knowing a little of her past now is it sad because she grew up with her family dying around her (an uncle that was killed and others were mentioned) maybe thats y she's so cold and serious at times maybe she's not the spoiled rich girl she's thought out to b?

  • JuddGuest

    So I went back and really looked for it, guess the scar is not there before the hit from the knight, so I was wrong on that. However what does not make sense is after she gets hit the open wounds shape does not match with the scar, I.E. the wound is shaped like a 7 more or less I had taken this as a horizontal wound with blood running down her face. but the scar only runs vertical. Minor continuity issue, but it's not the only one still I love the show regardless.

  • JuddGuest

    She had the scar before the fight... also the wound was horizontal above her brow.

  • Spodgywobble

    I dunno Judd, her scar is hardly a metaphor in that sense. That's a real wound from a real fight.

    The 'Knight Armor' I personally feel represent Weiss's personal demons. Essentially her trailer is her fighting them or it, even the song hints at this "Mirror mirror what's behind you? Save me from the things I see, I can keep it from the world, why won't you let me hide from me?" about mid way through when she really starts trashing the armor.
    Really thought this is just what I got from it, I love it either way =D

    "Your dreams have become my burden. I will find my own liberation."

    After watching episode 15? Blake was a White Fang terrorist. The other Faunus' cold apathy at the thought of humans dying looks to be that typical attitude in that organization. Blake realizes she doesn't share that attitude. In 15 she practically came out and said that that kind of apathetic us v. them attitude is what spurred White Fang into existence in the first place. And so she left. Hid her heritage. Tried to start a new life. Used her skills to get into Beacon. But she can't escape who she is.

  • Spodgywobble

    After watching Episode 15, I have to wonder... Was that giant knight an android like the security mechs on her family's company's train in the Black trailer? I'm thinking probably. And if so, was this an assassination attempt by White Fang? Is that what Weiss meant when she said she was a victim? Hell, let's go all the way: Was this giant android stolen FROM that train? How connected are Weiss and Blake really?

    *Fun Fact*
    Weiss's fencing skills are (loosely) based off of techniques that Monty knows in real life. This is also the reason that she is left handed.

    I found this series shortly after it was created. I watched the first 5-7 episodes before discovering the intros/trailers. I am normally very put-off by the uptight, self-absorbed, prissy personality that I came to know as Weiss Schnee. This cinematic changed that instantly with the first word she sang. Beautiful. I dont think I've ever wanted to give someone such a big hug so much and wanted to be their friend ^_^

    I really wish she was the more quite, elegant and sincere character in the series. her appearance leads on to royal and well-mannered but during the series she really comes of as Whiny and Mean. Dont get me wrong, she is a great character to the series but I "wish" they worked more on the characters plot/background stories, Oh well Cool Series I cant wait for more episodes

  • dwwild

    Right at the end, she looked up at the moon; it's at an early stage of breaking, whereas in the series it appears at a much more advanced stage. She also looked somewhat concerned, whereas the other characters don't really address it at all in their trailers. I wonder if there's some significance there.

    I also think it's interesting that Weiss, the most pristine and affluent member of the cast, is the only one that visibly bears scars.

    HolyHandNade there is more than enough evidence supporting your theory.

    it would also explain why she seems relatively calm here but has to talk herself through her first encounter with real monsters, and ends up running away. maybe she believes her father would never let her come to harm

  • HolyHandNade

    2 years ago

    here's a question: why is she fighting this thing in the first place? i'm assuming it's a memory and not some sort of alternate reality thing or anything like that. i'm wondering if the giant armor isn't something evil at all, but something that her parents (i'll guess her father) forced her to fight in order to toughen her up and make her "perfect," like she says in the most recent episode.
    all i have to back that up is that there doesn't seem to be any other reason for her to be fighting it, and that the window in the background looks like the schnee family crest. but still, if it's true, it says a lot about her family and her upbringing
