Well why else have that moment unless it had some kind of purpose behind it.
Pyrrha Nikos general discussion
#33135975 - 3 years ago
Cinder's arrow was glowing red because it was meant to disintegrate Pyrrha ... also it didn't glow red for Amber because she didn't have the Fall Maiden's powers yet. And she wanted to make sure that Amber was facing Cinder when she killed her. After all, her fire powers are not her semblance. They are the of the Fall Maiden's abilities.

If felt like the arrow was a way to paralize her, or make her go "Inactive" and Cinder holding Pyhrras head was the dicinigration based on the fact that she holds the power, not the bow. I doubt they wouldnt introduce a new arrow that we wouldnt know the powers of this late. It would make it nore confusing

You said "Well why else have that moment unless it had some kind of purpose behind it."
There was a purpose behind it - to show that even someone so seemingly important and powerful can die in vain and fade into history ... its really nihilistic but I like how it was presented with Pyrrha's death, if that is what they are going for ...
While its true that Pyrrha death in no way helped save Beacon or really bought much time (not even a Pyrrhic victory ... just a defeat) Pyrrha death is important in the emotional and character development of the remaining heroes.
You gotta analyse it bro! Its a really symbolic and important death!

Roman is confirmed dead? WOW!
That guy had a very interesting and charismatic character. Shame to see him leave. Thought he was going to pull a bull shit and survive. Now that would be some kind of Deus Ex Machina for him! I guess his death shows how death can happen anytime to anyone regardless of who they ...

Sorry but I do not like this twist. Since she's based of Achilles. You know how he was and how he died, right?
And you know, she got shot through her heart and spine! She struggled for air like a dying person would with the same injury! Then her body visibly stopped working because she "seemingly" died. Cinder pulverises her with her fire powers. Smoke was visible and Pyrrha's ashes flew away with the wind. No teleportation visible, because then her crown would have been teleported as well, like the rest of her clothes and armor.
The red particles were clealy the same kind of censorship like with Yang's disarmement!
I don't know how you could make a death more clear than that!
Should Cinder have said "Oh well, she's dead. LOLOLOLOLOLOL"
Should Pyrrha have been shot through the head instead? Be decapitated? Be torn apart? Smashed into pieces?
It would be just to far fetched at this oint in my opinion. Future deaths would be also meaningless if she comes back!
This is to all people who believe Pyrrha is still alive... somehow.
This thread isn't about theories for her survival. It's for theories of the consequences of her possible death!
Excuse me for the rant. Nothing personal...

Also, take a look at this interesting post from the
IS PYHRRA REALLY DEAD
#33135973 - 12 MINUTES AGO
I just have a funny feeling that Phyrra is not dead. Before Monty died I remember him saying that none of the main 8 ( Team Rwby and Team Jnpr) would die for the first 8 seasons. If RT stick to Monty's words, could this mean that she is not dead?
Also in one of the later episodes in the season, when Cinder, Emerald and Mercury are on the rooftops after they ruin everything, Emerald seemed to feel guilty over what they have done. Is it possible she has turned and Cinder is seeing an ilusion in her fight against Pyhrra? I mean we haven't really seen her or Mercury for a while.
What do you guys think

Another interesting post from the
RWBY PREDICTIONS, THEORIES, AND IDEAS!
#33135955 - 27 MINUTES AGO
Has anyone ever played Metroid Prime: Echoes? In the game Samus is on planet Aether which has a light dimension and a dark dimension while still being the same planet. So that scene with Salem really looked like it was the dark dimension of Remnant, because she could still see the shattered moon. Furthermore, with the scarab which crawled out of a small portal of Cinders glove (obviously having the same symbol on its back as Salems cape) and Raven using a special Dust blade to creat these dark portals, I think they leed to that alternate dimension. And since Raven is confirmed being dangerous it wouldn't be far off if she was one of the few people knowing about this dark dimension of Remnant. I could even imagine that Raven is working for Salem.

There are two ways this can go: If Pyrrha is 'dead, dead' then I hope they
have it written out well enough to have a VERY noticeable effect as in my
opinion JNPR's reaction to her 'death' was a bit weak. In my opinion Ruby
grieved harder (although she was the only eyewitness) than Ren and
Nora. Hopefully there's more to it than what we got in V3.
If's she's 'mostly dead' (yeah I took that from Princess Bride) well that would also make sense in a way. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I can't accept Pyrrha can actually be deceased but I do find it a bit odd that one of only two characters on Team JNPR who actually got character
development (arguably even more than some members of Team RWBY) gets killed off
so early if they planned for 10+ Volumes.
Character deaths can pave room for more development of another (it's been used so many times) but it's rarely another protagonist unless the series is reaching its absolute end.

This motherfcuker can predict the future! Lets ask him about Pyrrha's fate!
(this is a joke - do not take it seriously)
#33136077 - 3 years ago
I think Pyrrha was strongest or at least one of the strongest students... That's why she held her ground against Cinder.
Either way, the series took a dark turn for sure. But to be honest, I like it this way. I certainly like this way more than series where you are 100% sure that none of the good guys will die.

She may be dead, but probably not gone. While I don't watch any other anime but this, I know that death is not important or permanent. Yes it is possible that the fight was an illusion but I think Phyrra is not permanently dead. I have 2 theories:
1. Killing Cinder will bring her back.
2. Juane's Semblance can heal/raise the dead.
-I think Juane will find a way or at least try to bring her back in Vol. 4
To that I replied with:
Number 2 would work perfectly as Juane's high amount of aura give him one special field of abilities. That field being most commonly called, "PALADIN". Warriors of holly light and users of aura to help those around them.
So...would it be to far fetched to assume Jaune's semblance has the same powers related to that of a Paladin from most medieval fantasy based stories and games. He already has the sword and shield covered and he can heal his own injuries as we saw in Volume One.
As a personal note, if I could find the time, I would totally do a piece of fan art that would combined the Judgement Armer set and Ashbringer with Juane and the technology of Remnant.
