Volume 5, Chapter 3: Unforeseen Complications

RWBY: Volume 5, Chapter 3: Unforeseen Complications

Ruby, Weiss, Blake, and Yang are each entangled in journeys of their own, but they all share one destination: Haven Academy. Whether it's the promise of ancient relics, mystical maidens, or simply more power, it's clear that the stage for the next great battle for Remnant has been chosen. The question is, with so many players in this game, who's going to come out on top?

    Was definitely hearing Father (FMA:B) in poppa Belladonna's speech. It's so weird; the tone is there, delivery much the same - excluding the contempt - but thematically is completely opposite. Sounds pretty good either way.


    "You got this." Totally killing the mood, Sun!


    I can't explain just how giddy I was when Ozpin finally laid his cards down (most of them, presumably). From the very first Volume and Chapter until the 5th and now. I've been wracking my brain to figure out his identity almost everytime I sat down to watch a new release. Looks like most of my theories were incorrect, or just not quite accurate. But that just made this all the more exciting to see and hear.


    For some reason I feel as though Weiss erred in telling Vernal about Winter. Even if Ironwood closed the borders and recalled his forces; if there's the threat of war on the horizon, would he really withdraw his special operatives which, one could assume, includes those skilled at reconnaissance? Hypothesis: If Cinder comes to the bandit camp, might Raven take that information abut Ironwood's troops and use it for bartering?

    Ruby, Nora and Juane's faces when Professor Ozpin/Oscar flipped and started twirling his cane... Priceless.

    Regrets of a passed headmaster—that reminds me of something...

    Also, show-off!


    What Ghira is planningis pretty bold. And getting reluctant people in fighting shape is not an easy task.


    One question that occured to me in volume 2 and that I was remembered now: 

    Why do people not all systematically unlock their Aura? It would seem logical to have that basic defense in such a dangerous world, even (or especially) without fighting training or use of one's semblance.


    Also, I'm not a fan of it IRL, but on Remnant, I'd think it would be sensible to have everybody go through a mandatory basic fighting training—specifically aimed at killing Grimm, mind you. Especially in such cases as at the end of volumes 2 and 3, this should be useful, or at least reduce casualties while people flee...

      I don't think anything less than full Huntsman or military training will give a person a fighting chance against the Grimm in an open battle. They're strong, tough, and pretty single-minded. It would probably just make the casualties worse because more people would try to stand and fight, and then be killed.

      @Ace-of-Rogues

      I see your point and, yes, that's absolutely possible.


      However, let me expand on/clarify my thought.

      I didn't mean for people to openly fight the Grimm. I fully agree that the sort of training I had in mind does not suffice to effectively take part in fighting off the Grimm, more so, such people would be a burden for the Huntsmen. However, if – along with the training – people were drilled to seek the nearest shelter, these basic skills would ensure that more of the citizens would actually get there, because, as opposed to no training, they would be able to overcome some of the weaker Grimm on their way.


      Of course there's always some wannabe heroes...


      But first and foremost, I think people should at least unlock their Aura. Even without any training whatsoever, it would provide some protection, while a dormant Aura apparently does nothing at all.


      Unless there is some major drawback to it, which I don't know about.

  • AlvisLavrus

    Man if Ozpin has lived for so long it means his combat skills are peerless having had hundreds of lifes to perfect them, but then again i wonder how much hax are maiden powers to actualy be able to overcome that amount of experience, or maybe how much skill he can use depends on his vessel and his previous body could no longer fully utlise it all

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

      i think it takes getting used to each time.  most fighting styles we've seen depend on semblance.  so each new body brings a new semblance and retraining for a new style

    • Ace-of-Rogues

      2 weeks ago

      I'd guess from how they described the Maiden powers that they're pretty OP. Also, the battle he had with Cinder was not the type that would necessarily play to his strength of greater experience, since it was less of a conventional battle and more of a clash of semi-mystical powers.

    I had a hunch back Vol 4 that Ozpin was a body jumper and it looks like my hunch proven correct. Now it really makes me how Ozpin originally looked like. Furthermore, what was the previous host's original personality and name? I'd like to see some special that are like the WOR videos but instead showcasing ancient times such as how Ozpin and Salem came to be.


    I wonder how Ozpin is going to train RNJR and are they gonna be made to pair up? If so who will Ruby spar with for her hand to hand training? I hope it's Jaune for some Lancaster action.

      But where did they Get the Crystal's? Does her aura make her able to summon Constructs for a cost? What was that cost? Did she use her own blood? It is said that every living being makes Dust/Crystals, So wouldn't it be ethical if she had a power to Produce Dust inside herself? (only small Of Course) If so, How did this happen? Why is that there? is it another Aura? Will she be able to Recover if the dust is in her blood/body? and btw why wont they Weiss just say, "Hey so i protected your 2 daughters from getting killed, We got separated so...  we are huntresses together and we stay together and thats why i'm going to haven to find Ruby

    • noonyakaleka

      2 weeks ago

      roacheboy - Ruby isn't Raven's daughter - she doesn't seem to care about Ruby, she barely cares about Qrow (or is that he's a big boy who can take care of himself?). Either way Raven probably sees it more as a business transaction anyway "Nothing personal, but my men gotta eat."

      As for the first part of your questions. I just gotta say HUH? It's been explained, by Winter, that "All Schnee's can summon" and Weiss just needs to focus and concentrate and "call her fallen foes". I guess that might mean - in your terms - the "price" was paid with their blood and with Weiss's victory. (You do know that the Huntsman she summons is the knight from the White Trailer, right?)

      The reason why she needs to learn to fight hand to hand is because of situations like volume 3, where she had to face Mercury without Crescent Rose. Plus there's the chance she'll be disarmed like Qrow was last season, especially since she's going to be fighting more people like Tyrion who aren't mindless killing machines (at least not on the same level as the Grimm).

      I've watched this episode too many times and I have reason to both hate and like this ship. However, I have to say, I do not get that same indication as you. Ruby's cheeks do not change, she is just as giddy as usual and I think Oscar is just shy/embarrassed as a personality trait because he hasn't traveled far from his farm before. I got the impression that she was more curious as to what is really going on with Oscar/Ozpin as this is a "first times all around" moment, as was said.

      I think to draw a conclusion like this is premature. But it could be used as a foundation stone if other references are made in the future.

    • merilirem

      2 weeks ago

      No, it's not. It's possible that Oscar think's Ruby is pretty and is interested in her in a childish crush kinda way. Ruby however has shown nothing unusual for her or indicative of love or any sort of romantic affection.

      As far as I've seen, RWBY fans are too "passionate" most of the time. Many say that they won't watch anymore if such and such does/doesn't happen. If we were all more open-minded there could be less hate. I don't think the "Lame", "Noob" and "Flamebait" Mods help - they are still insults that shouldn't be allowed, especially by an organization that openly claims to like all ships, regardless of what they actually present on the show, and love all the fanfiction and fan theories. I think those Mods fuel the close-mindedness of the most furiously passionate.

The way I see it, so long as they don't majorly muck up the story, pacing, etc., in a way that compromises the show, why complain?

      Jack, Silver eyes are not a semblance. The rose thing is her semblance and funny enough its hinted that Summer ROSE had a rose semblance too, which is hilarious. What are the odds huh? Well considering Winter's words were "unlike many our semblance is hereditary" the odds are actually not that bad. Go back and look at that line and you will find how strange it is.


      It basically says other people have Hereditary semblances. Also the rose family could well be an offshoot of the Schnee.

    • noonyakaleka

      2 weeks ago

      Based solely on the information we have so far - we are not entirely sure that "speed" is Ruby's semblance. Qrow said that Ruby's semblance was "bursting into rose petals" and her speed could just be a side effect of her her actual semblance. Also....based on the glimpses we've had of Ghost Summer - she may have "bursted into rose petals" too. So we don't know if Ruby inherited her semblance either.

      And also, it has not been clarified by CRWBY what the silver eye powers are, is it a semblance? Are speed and "bursting into rose petals" side effects of having silver eyes and her silver eyes ARE the semblance? We don't know. But we do know that Ruby could pass the silver eye trait on to her child, because Summer did. And no, the two souls would not be inherited - but we can discuss if their child could be a candidate for Ozpin's soul after he dies - like how the Maiden's powers are passed. Ozpin did say they had to be "a like minded soul".

    So Ozpin has hundreds of years of training but he still lost to Cinder, whom Pyrrha did really well against. I mean Pyrrha lost as well, yes, but there were moments where she had the upper hand, showing Cinder still makes mistakes and is a human being afterall, unlike Ozpin. I am having a hard time understanding how Ozpin lost against her.

      I agree haha I seriously doubt that Cinder over powered him. 

      I'm 99% sure that Ozpin decided to throw the battle and sacrifice him self knowing he'll only be set back a bit with the reincarnation, rather that beating Cinder, she dies and A) passes on the power to someone else, and having to search for them again B) Probably passing on the power to someone on Salem side by thinking of them, who would also be unknown.

      This way, Ozpin now knows who and where the autumn maiden is.

      Well that what I believe at least

      I think Cinder never really put everything into fighting Pyrrha (at least at first). She seemed very serious in her fight with Ozpin and only kinda so with Pyrrha. Also, Ozpin probably exhausted her, as others said.
