I like the idea but there should be channels for different channels Funhaus, Rooster Teeth, Kinda Funny, etc. That would add to the whole TV vibe.

NOTE: Before I start, this blog is going to contain A LOT OF SPOILERS on RWBY, so go catch up to the episodes if you haven't seen them. K? K. You have been warned.
Long ago, the World of Remnant was created by the brotherly Gods of Light & Darkness with the ideals of creation, destruction, choice, & knowledge. They created an era where humanity can use magic in their disposal.
And then some selfish chick tried to play the gods & have humanity go against them, all to revive her heroic husband. Look, I would love to have someone very close to me, who died, be revived, but that was a BIG mistake she made. Of course being a bad idea, the gods made her immortal, killed every living being on Remnant, & destroyed most of the moon as they left. Remember this lesson; Never play god!
But the God of Light was a nice guy and gave humanity a second chance along with having Faunus involved, but they have to survive from the dark creatures of destruction called Grimm. Some of them became hunters & huntress & created every weapon to be guns to fight off the Grimm. And one of them will protect her friends & the people from these creatures, no matter what. This huntress is Ruby Rose. No not that one! But, I did find that funny. This one. In "How Powerful", I will analyze a character to show their best feats of strength, speed, durability, skill, etc. as long as if they are canon & don't contradict that character & I will be explaining it like DEATH BATTLE! would. So don't expect every feat or p&a(powers & arsenal) to be explained. I'm Steven & I'm going to show you how powerful Ruby Rose is!
Height: 5'2'' | 1.57 meters
Birthday: October 31
Younger sister to Yang Xiao Long
Leader of RWBY & RNJR
Trained by Qrow Branwen
Inspired by Little Red Riding Hood
After the loss of her mother & being trained by her awesome uncle, Qrow, Ruby was inspired by some Fairy Tales to become a huntress like Qrow & her older sister, Yang. That's the same blond "hottie" that fought that female brawler from Final Fantasy! Good times... Good times... Anyway, to fight off the Grimm, Ruby has the perfect weapon called Crescent Rose. Which is also a gun. Obviously.
Class: High Caliber Sniper Scythe
Has massive recoil to boost her acceleration
Can use the scythe blade & back blades for more slicing power
"It's also a gun."
A combination of a scythe & a sniper rifle, Ruby can use it for both close range & long range. She can use the recoil to increase her acceleration in battle. And she use different kinds of Dust for ammunition. Dust is a form of energy that can be used for anything from a power source for technology to using it for destruction. There are 4 types of Dust & can be combined with others to make stronger types of it. Ruby can use fire, ice, & electric & can use gravity dust to propel her in faster acceleration speeds. She can achieve Dust with Aura, which is just like Ki & Chakra that you see in almost every Anime.
Powers & Abilities:
-Superhuman Strength & Durability
-Block attacks & heal minor wounds
*Move at massive speeds
*Limited flight capabilities
*Can turn into rose petals & split apart
With experience & skill, Aura can manifest one's soul to give them incredible abilities like super strength & durability. It can also block deadly attacks, heal minor wounds, & grant users extrasensory perception or a sixth sense. Where it can sense their surroundings to see if you're being followed or being attacked. And Aura can give people a superpower called Semblance. Ruby's semblance is super speed. She can move at massive speeds, give her limited flight capabilities, & for some reason, can turn herself into rose petals & split herself apart. First off, that's more than just speed. And second off, how do I get this Aura, I want a superpower. What would mine be? To turn into any fictional character to gain their abilities.
But her most powerful ability she has is what we've been staring at the whole time. Her silver eyes.
How did she get this power? Well, she is born from an ancient lineage of warriors that were gifted by the God of Light, like her mother, Summer Rose.
A gift from the God of Light
Fueled by strong desires
Got them from her mother, Summer Rose
Only effective to Grimm & Maidens
So, Ruby is kind of like a god now when you think about it. The Silver Eyes are fueled by Ruby's strong desires to protect her friends & family. She can use them to blind, vaporize, or turn Grimm into stone. Eh kind of. Like she did with the dragon & leviathan. Does this effect humans? Yes & no. Cinder AKA: Evil Cinderella was effected by her Silver Eyes, which gave her a bad eye & lost her arm & was replaced with a Grimm arm. But, she did gained the powers of the Fall Maiden during that time & Salem said it was a crippling weakness for Maidens. During her journey to become a huntress, Ruby has done some incredible feats. She's fast enough to kill a pack of Beowolves before her bullet shells landed. And she created a vacuum in a food fight, which cracked a stone wall. She used her speed to lift this Grimm gorilla.
Crushed a stone statue by landing on it & was strong enough to drag this massive bird while running up a cliff.
This is going to be interesting.
This Nevermore resembles of the largest flying animal in the world; the Andean Condor, which has the length of 4.3 ft & weighs 33 lbs. Assuming the Nevermore was a size of a T-Rex, which has the length of 40 ft & using the Square Cubed Law, the Nevermore weighs about 13 tons. And then, she sliced through its head like it was nothing. Awesome!
Dragged a 13 ton Nevermore
Took a hit from Nora w/ watermelon hammer
Created a vacuum with her speed
Crushed a stone statue from landing
Took a hit from Mercury
Petrified a Grimm wyvern & leviathan
Killed a pack of Beowolves before the bullet shells landed
But not only is Ruby obviously fast & extremely strong, she's also very tough. She took a kick from Mercury, who blocked an attack that made geysers erupt & a hit from Nora's watermelon hammer, which broke a pillar when Weiss was hit by it & this is the same girl who launched Yang up 10,000 ft in the air & broke through a building. Man, she's impressive! But, don't overestimate this godlike girl, Ruby still has some growing up to do. She sometimes runs into battle without even thinking & has problems with opponents with superior hand to hand combat. And while the Silver Eyes are powerful, she still has some learning to use them & she can be left vulnerable for anyone to get close enough to hit her. But even with that, Ruby reunited with her team & are on a mission to kill Salem. Yeah, she's going to bleed "red like roses".
Okay, you know who's going to face Ruby, it's Maka & Soul from Soul Eater. Everyone wants it. You want it! I want it! Even DEATH BATTLE! & Monty Oum wants it to happen! This is the most asked request yet & the 2 things holding it back from happening is Ruby's development & Maka & Soul having no good 3D models! Maybe it should be hand-drawn.
Next Time on How Powerful(March 20):
Make sure to comment any question you have for this. Thank you.

I, like many people, was a part of the Rooster Teeth community before I even knew a thing about the company- through Red Vs Blue.
I was just old enough to really begin exploring the internet by myself, and happened upon the first episode of a series funny enough to keep me entertained, with characters and a story good enough to get me hooked. Since this was my first introduction to machinima, the fact that someone managed to make a funny video in one of my favorite games was amazing.
Of course, I happened upon the episode randomly, and not on redvsblue.com. I had no idea there were more, or the people behind it. It faded into the back of my memory as life went on, just another funny video in the quickly exploding sea of the internet. Until..
One day, probably somewhere at the start of middle school, I met M. Still my bud even through the distance, him and I randomly started talking about Halo. Eventually, I brought up that silly video I saw the year before, and his eyes immediately lit up. He started mentioning characters I hadn't heard about.. About a plot I didn't know was there. Who the fuck is Caboose?
And then, the ritual began. At least once a week, he'd be at my house to hang out, and with him he'd bring the flash drive he stole from his dad with the next episode of Red Vs Blue.
That's friend #1 I have to thank Rooster Teeth for, a strong friendship brought about by a bunch of guys making videos with friends.
YouTube came about in 2006, and with it the rest of Red Vs Blue. M and I couldn't meet as often as we used to, so I had fallen behind. It took a while, but eventually, it was all right there! I couldn't be happier. By now, I had a small, nerdy friend group, and one of many things we had in common is that we were closet RvB fans. Nerd Chic was finally becoming a thing.. The true nerds weren't as ostracized, "video game clubs" became a thing, and what I consider a major shifting point for videogames happened: Call Of Duty 4. I'll never forget it.
At that point, everyone was playing games, but nobody was talking about them. CoD 4 came out, and there was a noticeable shift in school.. The jocks were talking about Call Of Duty. Everyone had played Gears, everyone loved Fear, but everyone kept it at home. The world was changing! Don't even get me started about Black Ops, everyone nerded out about that one. But I digress.
Times were changing! And so was RoosterTeeth! There were loads of content producers on Youtube. TheRadBrad, IHasCupquake, Jacksfilms, CaptainSparklez, ClashJTM.. There was so much content, you couldn't keep up if you tried! That being said, Xbox gaming took up a good part of what little free time I had, and I briefly became a Gamerscore junkie. Achievement guides filled my "to do" playlist on YouTube.
And then, in the recommended-for-you videos list, I happened upon Episode 0 of Fails Of The Weak. Yup, there you go. If you made it this far, hi! Yup, I'm the typical RT fan. Liked RvB, rediscovered through Fails, and the rest is history... But who could have predicted the impact it would have?
Of course, through Fails, I found AHWU.. And through AHWU, we were all introduced to the team.. Jack and Geoff, you could finally put faces to the voices. They added Michael, you met Gavin.. Eventually, you find the shorts and meet Burnie and Gus, and so on..
And now, their content's all I watch. They've replaced cable, they've just about rooted out the rest of my old favorite content producers just by the sheer volume of the stuff they put out. But why?
Jack and Geoff starting AHWU had to have been the best possible move they could have made. In doing so, I finally got to see the voice actors for my favorite characters. I finally learned the history of the company that's affected my life in so many ways- they separated themselves from the rest making behind-the-scenes videos, adding their little real-life slices to their videos (tower of pimps, shenanigans, etc,) and bringing individuals, who by themselves have amazing personalities, all together and finding a way to make them vibe and create something 1000 times better than the individual could do.
We watch them every week. Without insinuating I know a damn thing about who they really are in person, you feel like you've gotten to know them over the years. You've seen Jack's personality evolve hugely.. He was stupidly funny, heavy-handed and sometimes crude, and now we've shed tears with him through Extra Life, and watch him become the gentle giant we now know.
We've seen Gavin go from a forum member they flew out to work with them, to an extremely knowledgeable cameraman and incredible onscreen personality.
We've seen Michael go from the Rage Quit guy, to the only sane lad in the room, to the two-time dad we currently know him as. We've watched his first daughter grow with him. Think about that-
Look at Geoff- I've cried for this dude I've never met, and I know I'm not the only one who can only think "inspiring" every time I see him. A veteran, of the military and Roosterteeth, he was there from the beginning. I was a kid, and his videos were with me when I was growing up. Getting ready to transition out of the Navy, I see that a veteran with enough boredom or determination can do damn near anything. We saw slices of him and Griffon's life, watched Millicent grow up... Heard him talk about his alcoholism, seen how much healthier and seemingly happier he is, and we look back and think "How the fuck did none of us notice a problem?"
Through the good and the bad, I've become a better person by watching Geoff, and all of the Rooster Teeth crew. They might not think they do much, half of them are probably uncomfortable being called "inspiring," but it is what it is. I have friends who have found their spouses through Rooster Teeth. My wife and I watch their content together at least once a week..
Wow, that got rambly for a bit, there. For the one person that will be bored enough to read this- I hope you enjoyed. That's just my story- regardless of how you found Roosterteeth, or what it means to you, the important part is this: we're currently in the golden age of the internet. It can be your sanctuary from the ordinary- and there are THOUSANDS of people that share a common interest with you- come find us! Don't be afraid to take a chance at making a new friend! Go to a local meet up, hop into the forums and say hello, or post your cry for help online and the fans and friends will come!
I'll see you in the comments section! (God help us..)

TL;DR - We’ve got flight deals with oneworld alliance for RTX 2019!
Hey everyone. It’s your resident community member turned events coordinator, George, with another RTX update.
I’m excited to announce that oneworld alliance and Rooster Teeth have partnered to provide discounted airfare to RTX via participating carriers.
One of the things we’ve heard from you is the desire for flight deals in addition to the hotel deals we provide. Although we have announced this already, I wanted to make sure there was a dedicated place for information. Here’s what you need to know to get in the air and en route to Austin.
What is the oneworld alliance?
oneworld is an airline alliance (group of airlines that work together to better facilitate air travel among their brands) made up of 13 global airlines. The carries who have agreed to help us out are:
Cathay Pacific Airways Limited
LATAM Airlines Group S.A.
Qantas Airways Limited
Qatar Airways Company, Q.C.S.C
Royal Jordanian Airlines
Sri Lankan Airlines
How much is the discount and how do I get it?
Discounts range between 5%-25% and can only be accessed through the booking portal oneworld.com/events using the code OW25A19. While you can do multiple transactions, you can only purchase a maximum of 2 tickets per transaction.
Discount percentages are applicable to fares in the main cabin or higher. In other words, anything above the basic economy is eligible for a discount. The booking portal won’t show any basic economy options so anything you see will be an eligible discounted fare.
The exact discount amount depends on the fare, originating location, and selected airline. All of these options can be changed during booking.
What about people whose preferred airline isn’t listed?
If you have an airline you like that’s outside the oneworld alliance, that’s okay. We, unfortunately, don’t have deals for outside carriers, but we encourage you to do what’s best for you. Whether you’d prefer to fly basic fares, budget airlines, or a separate major carrier entirely, we understand. This is simply another, potentially cheaper option.
What if we already purchased our flight?
If you already purchased your flight, good for you! You’re ahead of the game and probably got a reasonably priced flight regardless. These discounts cannot be retroactively added.
We understand flights, just like hotels can be a prohibiting factor in a lot of people’s plans for RTX. That’s why we work hard to build partnerships and cultivate deals to help alleviate some of that financial strain. The more the deals are used, the better we can understand and improve in the future. We encourage you to do more research and do what’s best for you, but don’t forget that there are things in place to help if you need it.
So, quick recap:
Portal - oneworld.com/events
Event Code - OW25A19
Discount Rate - 5%-25%
Ticket Quantity - Maximum 2 per transaction
Until next time, cheers!

Holy shit. I've been trying to put my thoughts together about the show and I don't know that I can. I have been in awe since Saturday morning.
My best friend and I watched Saturday morning and for an hour after we were speechless. Even after catching the "surprise" showing of episode one in December, yesterday's viewing was shocking. There were so many teeny tiny little details that I hadn't noticed the first time. That's one of the things I love most about the show so far. From the "In Memoriam" wall growing to the little trinkets on Cammie's bag and the details on Kazu's clothes. The attention to detail is absolutely incredible.
That includes the sound design. One of the things my friend and I discussed was the huge difference in sound design for gen:LOCK compared to the other shows RT produces. The first thing that came to mind for us was RWBY. RWBY always has bouncy and upbeat music. Even in fights and action I always wanna get up and bounce around. gen:LOCK absolutely had me on the edge of my seat. I found myself clutching my chest, heartbeat pounding right along with the music. It was an entirely different tempo.
That tempo of the music matched the writing and the pace of the show so well. Even in slower moments I was sucked in. The writing and the visuals match so well. While I was worried at the initial slow pace the episodes picked up and honestly, after five minutes, I didnt care. The writing was so fantastic that a 30 minute episode felt like it ended after five minutes. By the end of episode one these characters had me wrapped around their fingers (and we hadn't even met them all yet)!
My biggest reservation going into the show was the animation. I've never watched a lot of anime and all I kept hearing was how the animation looked "choppy" and the "fame rate" was crap. I had no idea what that meant, but I was worried. I shlook uld never have listened. I absolutely LOVED the style of the show. Everyone-and everything-looked sleek and smooth. Everything down to the facial expressions were wonderful. I felt like I could see every emotion. And the animation for the jets and the mech was insane. I just wanted to zoom in and see every dang joint as it moved. I never should have doubted Gray and his team.
With everything going on in the show, the thing that brought it home, was the voice acting. We were all excited for those big names, and they absolutey didnt disappoint. Hearing Maisie Williams as Cammie was a highlight for me. That accent is just damn adorable and amazing. Honestly though, all the RT peeps in the show? Were fucking phenomenal. Miles and Lindsay always hit it out of the park and Chad was amazing. But Blaine Gibson really stood out for me. He absolutely brought Sinclair to life and killed the mans inflection and emotions. I mean, that plot twist was top notch and I was so lost in Sinclair that I lost Blaine.
I never thought, two episodes in, I would be this hooked on a show. I haven't stopped thinking about it, watched it more than once, and I'm invested in these characters. I haven't been this enthralled in a really long time and I am beyond excited.
I haven't been with Rooster Teeth since the beginning. I haven't gotten to see the entire rise of the company. But this? I am insanely proud and humbled to be a part of the community at this time. Because someday I'll be able to say, "Rooster Teeth? Oh yeah, I was a fan BEFORE gen:LOCK."
I'll be able to tell people about the hype for the show. About the standing ovation we gave at RTX Austin 2018 when footage was released.
I'll be able to say I witnessed one of this generations greatest Anime shows come to be.
For that I am extremely lucky.
