    why dont they look at the tapes and watch Mercury's legs his legs are mechanical you could definitely see the movement it is even the slightest touch off when he walks...

    Soo even if they can't prove that Yang is telling the truth they can see he isn't even hurt...

    Ahhhhhh c-mon

    I really hope somebody is on Yang's side through all this. It wouldn't be believable that in a world with all these magic-like elements, as well as a sinister force working in the shadows, that nobody would seem suspicious or skeptical of a opponent with no history of aggressive outbursts like that (outside of life threatening situations) to suddenly attack a opponent like that and forfeit a tournament she had fought so hard to win.

      Although I would agree with you to an extent, they would have no idea that - even with all of these existing abilities, something like that is even possible. For all they know, they'd have to believe it was some kind of mind control (even though it's clearly Emerald's hallucination).

  • Quantum1000

    There is actually a way to prove Yang's story with physical evidence, recorded by the cameras, as long as they have a nice close-up view of her eyes before the incident.

    Basically, what you have to do is track where she's looking. If you were to do this, because Emerald's illusions change what the person is seeing but don't directly effect what they're doing, you would see Yang looking past Mercury at illusory Mercury who was still on the ground, and then shift her view quickly towards herself until she ended up shooting Mercury's leg.

    Unfortunately, I highly doubt they're figure this out. While a society at their level certainly should have video analysts competent enough to prove it through this method, that would be far too inconvenient for the plot.


    Even not using this, though, the "Yang randomly shot Mercury" story is full of holes and should be suspicious to anyone who doesn't instantly blow off Yang's story as an excuse. Firstly, what reasoning could Yang possibly have for shooting Mercury in front of THE ENTIRE CROWD? If she really wanted to injure Mercury, for whatever reason, she would do it after the match once they had left the stage. This would have less witnesses and give her a chance of evading detection. Secondly, this seems to be a major offense and if... the city containing beacon? Yeah, I forgot the name... has (or for that matter, if the school has) any sort of institutional justice system, they are going to have to have a trial and Mercury is going to be called in as the victim. From the hospital. Which, in case you haven't noticed, he isn't in. If they try to ask the doctor the severity of the injury he sustained, they're not going to be able to get an answer because there's no doctor. And then they would probably look over the previous matches containing Mercury to see if anyone else reported illusions, to which the answer would be yes. Coco experience illusions when fighting Mercury and Emerald. And we don't know what Mercury's semblance is. All of this, although slightly misleading, should at least lead anyone serious about finding out the truth to the fact that something is fishy about this whole setup.

      Well I personally would go off of one simple thing: Video analysis and interrogation. You look into their past, "Has Yang ever hit someone without being provoked? No? Ok, is she kind to her classmates and did she bare a grudge on Merc? No? Well then we have to see if she's lying." You then do a good ol test for lying during an interrogation. If her eyes turn red at certain things that's a sign of this and if she is then instantly changed in mood at the next thing it means this. Psychology at its simplest folks. Although, goodwork om pointing that ou

    I could tell this next chapter will center around Ruby, Yang, and Pyrrha. I thought Yang's team would be a lot more supportive of her. Seriously! However that doesn't seem much having it confirmed that Yang really met her mom at Beacon. That really wasn't a dream like some theories I saw were saying.

    As for team RWBY being divided by this event I can say that was intended. At the end of volume 2 Emerald said to Cinder, "Those stupid kids [team RWBY] ruined everything." By making people doubt Yang, even her own goddamn team, it makes sense that people would lose trust in Beacon and occupy some enemies of Cinder. Two birds hit with one stone.

    In the last chapter Cinder was talking with someone and she sounded like she was explaining herself. She never explains herself which means she probably works for someone else. Just like Roman is her pawn she might be answering to someone else. Cinder took half of Amber's power and was probably really powerful before. We saw what Amber's power could do. Now we know that maybe there could be someone even more powerful than Amber at full strength.

    Just think about it for a time. It makes sense to say Cinder isn't the one behind everything. Just like Roman was only really behind dust robberies and maybe stealing the Paladins the White Fang were using it may be Cinder was only behind the Vytal Festival fiasco we saw two chapters ago. If she's explaining herself to someone off screen she's damn well not the one calling the shots.

    I'm wondering if Jaune could go through with the aura transfer instead of Phyrra. Even though Qrow said that guys couldn't have the maidens power, since this transfer is artificial, maybe the normal rules don't apply.

    Interesting how Cinder's overall personality hadn't changed demonstrably after ripping Amber's powers away... Why should we expect such a great change in Pyrrha? Or, are we just going on the Ironwood statement of the "risks" involved?

    • Samukaiko

      It's probably because the way Cinder did is different of what Ironwood is trying to do, Cinder took only the power but Pyrrha will take her aura as well. That's is what i think.

      I don't think he'd really recognize Emerald, at least not for her semblance. That's not a really obvious thing to point out. He could, however, be able to put 2 and 2 together by seeing Mercury in the 1v1 with him and Yang. That way, he can also point out the bluff with the robo-legs.

      The facts are that nobody (save the villains) knows illusions were part of the scenario - and because of that, without proof that such happened, all they saw was Yang seemingly breaking Mercury's leg for no reason. That is a very big thing that isn't easy to overcome

      Their friendship is the reason they're still talking to her, uncertain, confused, hurt, the whole host of things.

    • Meerkat_df FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That's why they are acting the way they are. The idea that Yang might not be the person they thought they knew is very upsetting to them, especially to Blake. Out of everyone I believe Blake might be the most upset with Yang. Blake has been betrayed before by people she had grown to trust, the idea that that might happen once again is no doubt going to make her more angry and untrusting towards Yang, simply to keep herself from getting more hurt. If you look at the rest of team RWBY's reaction when Yang "broke" Mercury's leg, while Weiss and Ruby looked shocked, Blake has the look of someone who just got betrayed by someone who they really believed in.

    • uxantro

      Unfortunately, that's the scary power of Emerald's semblance. The only one who saw Mercury's attack is Yang, because Emerald made her see it. Humans (and I'm stretching this to Faunus as well) tend to put more stock in what they see. It's why magic tricks are so awe inspiring to watch. You know there's a trick going on, but you can't rationalize what happened, so you're left in disbelief. And just like that, Remnant has seen a magic trick, even if they don't know it. Team RWBY wants to believe it's a trick, but because they only know what they saw, they can't rationalize it, and they're left in disbelief.

    Velvet should know about Emerald's semblance. Emerald used it to make Coco see Yatsuhashi, when he was actually fighting Mercury, in episode 4. Team CVFY should have been able to figure out what Emerald's semblance is after hearing Yang's story and knowing what Coco saw.

    • nikewall

      1 year ago

      Even if it is a test, that won't convince the public. Fact is, if we're talking about proving Yang innocent, there's only two people who can, Mercury or Emerald. But there's no way Emerald will admit to framing her, and Mercury will definitely stay out of sight until Cinder makes her next move. Even with Coco, she never turned around, she just stayed focused on the trees where she thought Emerald was. If they did meet in court, she couldn't say for sure she saw her teammate, therefore, it can't be linked to what happened to Yang. It might give Ruby an idea where to look, but not prove Yang innocent.

  • CukooCrazyChemist

    1 year ago

    I think I've figured it out, Yang did actually do what the camera's showed and broke Mercury's "leg" but Emerald used her Professor X like semblance on yang to make her think Mercury was attacking her therefore everybody doubts her. Emeralds powers where shown in the latest episode where she made the fall maiden think there was a crying child in the middle of the road, she could have done the same thing with Yang.
