Top 10 RWBY Characters that Need More Screen Time

With the Volume 4 soundtrack coming on May 1st, I wanted to express my love for this show that introduced me to RoosterTeeth. While I do enjoy RWBY, I think some characters deserve more character development and screen time. These are the characters I believe need more screen time.
The Top Ten
1 Cinder Fall A mysterious woman who possesses fire-based powers and uses a pair of blades that combine to form a bow that she uses to fire arrows.Vol. 2 She also fights with glass and has been noted to have fused Dust into some of her clothing. Cinder is a very cunning and secretive woman, with goals of gaining... read more

She's one of the antagonists of RWBY and is the main reason why Beacon fell. However, we don't know how she became this way, why she desires power, or her reason for hating humanity.

I hope she gets a backstory in either Volume 7 or a character short. She's my favorite character, and she really deserves a backstory.

2 Ozpin Ozpin was the headmaster of Beacon Academy.

Ozpin is introduced in "Ruby Rose", inquiring of Ruby Rose about where she learned how to fight, her future goals, and her desire to join his school. He is frequently seen with his cane despite having no visible motor impairment.

In "End of the... read more

I have a strong feeling that Volume 5 will have a lot of focus on Oscar, which will lead to learning more about Ozpin himself.

Also, I'm certain he's the wizard from the Four Maidens story. That would explain why he's in Oscar after he "died."

There are more questions about this guy than answers. What exactly is he? What's his power? Why does Salem hate him?

3 Nora Valkyrie

I loved her little bit with Ren and how they met, but what about her life before? Parents? Siblings? How did she become an orphan?

4 Salem

Salem is the main antagonist, and I want to see how she became this way. There have been many theories about her identity and what she has against humanity. So let's see more of this amazing woman!

5 Mercury Black Mercury Black is an antagonist in RWBY. He is an associate of Cinder Fall and partner of Emerald Sustrai.

He didn't speak one line in Volume 4. That was strange to me because he tends to run his mouth.

He had daddy issues and was trained to be an assassin. That's about it.

6 Emerald Sustrai

She was a street rat and used her semblance to steal. She joined Cinder because she had nowhere else to go. Why did she become this way, though?

7 Sun Wukong

He's funny and caring to the people in his life. Yet, I don't really know how he came to be that way or why he left his family and friends to check on Blake. Is there a reason? Does his family care?

8 Adam Taurus

Yeah, this guy is evil, and what he did to Blake and Yang was horrendous. But Blake said he slowly became worse and worse. Why was he becoming this way? Did something happen? Did he and Blake ever date at all?

We need more Adam! I don't care about others who despise him. I love this guy. I really want to know more about him and Blake's relationship.

I think he's a jerk, but I agree. I would like to know more about him.

9 Neopolitan

Such an amazing badass! I love how they turned a disabled character into such a cool, stylish, badass! She was shoplifting before she was eighteen, and for a mute character, she has so much personality! I'm going to be her for Halloween, and I'm SO excited for her to be one of the main antagonists in Volume 9! Fun fact: Neo is the ONLY person in the ENTIRE SHOW to have never failed a mission, plus she still has time for personal payback. GO NEOPOLITAN!

When I thought she was mute, someone told me that they have a voice planned for her. So, she's going to come back at some point.

10 Winter Schnee

I love the Schnee sisters, and I feel sorry for them. Their dad is a complete jerk, and their younger brother is following in his footsteps. Hints have also been given that their mom was an alcoholic too. I would like to see more of Winter and her backstory.

Winter is perfect for the most part. She has amazing fighting skills and an amazing personality. Need I say more?

Weiss is going after Winter next volume. Hopefully, she won't be in just 1-2 episodes and will have more screen time.

The Contenders
11 Velvet Scarlatina

She's a cute character that the fans have warmed up to. The fans even got to pick her own outfit through an art submission contest, and her power is pretty cool. Now let's see more of her!

She is very kind, cute, and her semblance is amazing!

12 Summer Rose

Definitely want to see more of her, whether it be in flashbacks or even visions/dreams. I feel like we all know a decent amount about the rest of the RWBY characters, but Summer still remains a mystery.

I want to see flashbacks of her.

13 Taiyang Xiao Long
14 Coco Adel
15 Raven Branwen

Interesting theory, but if she was, how come Yang isn't a Faunus? Well, we don't know if being a Faunus is a dominant trait or not. But still, interesting theory.

16 Glynda Goodwitch

The prettiest character, by far. She has one of the coolest semblances, by far. She's got a really great outfit, by far. Are there any more "by far"s that I have to say?

17 Zwei
18 Pyrrha Nikos

If she comes back in Volume 7, I want to see her turn Penny into dimes.

Pyrrha had so much potential. She really could have gone far.

19 Qrow Branwen
20 Weiss Schnee Weiss Schnee is a former student of Beacon Academy and one of the main protagonists of RWBY. Her weapon of choice is a Multi Action Dust Rapier (MADR) named Myrtenaster... read more
21 Ruby Rose

She is the main character! She has a team! Let her be with all of it! Also, when was the last time she and Blake spoke? Or Yang? She and Yang are sisters, and Yang isn't being her sister at all! (Can you tell I don't like Yang?) And Blake is her friend! Actually, I can't remember the last time they all worked together as a team.

22 Oscar Pine
23 Neptune Vasilias
24 Lie Ren A black-haired student at Beacon who dual wields machine pistols with attached blades, collectively called StormFlower. His Semblance allows him and his targets to avoid detection from Grimm. Ren lost his parents during a Grimm attack on Kuroyuri, the village he lived in.Vol. 4, Ch. 10 He and Nora are... read more
25 Bartholomew Oobleck Dr. Bartholomew Oobleck is a teacher at Beacon Academy. He is first seen in "Jaunedice, Pt.2" teaching history to the students, specifically teaching about the war between the Humans and the Faunus, which appears to have taken place a few generations before the start of the series... read more
