Best RWBY Fight Scenes

As Volume 5 approaches, I feel we should look back and remember the amazing fight scenes that RWBY has brought us. Also, this will contain spoilers from Volumes 3 and 4. If you haven't seen them, you should stop reading this list.
The Top Ten
1 Team RWBY & JNPR vs Nevermore & Deathstalker

This is the episode that had me sold on RWBY. The trailer was pretty cool and I was sort of getting into the story. But when Players & Pieces came out, I was blown away. I wanted to see more of this show and I continued to watch it.

This fight has a sense of grand scale that none of the other RWBY fights manage to capture. It feels like an epic boss battle from a Video Game.

The tension and music built up this battle perfectly.

2 Ruby vs Beowolves

From the Red Trailer. I loved the beautiful music, the choreography and the fascinating weapon. Also, not one word of dialogue was said in that trailer. I can't remember the last time I saw a trailer with no dialogue and just let the scene speak for itself.

The my opinion are have the best fight scenes in the series. Probably because of how godly they all seem like in the trailers. But in the show they are just teenagers that don't seem that intimidating.

3 Pyrrha vs Penny

Like Miles and Kerry said, this is the point when you remembered how Blake said life isn't a fairy tale. This is the first scene where we actually see someone die in this show. It was brutal how Penny died and everything sank into darkness after this.

We lost two great heroines that day...

4 Pyrrha vs Cinder

This made mine and every RWBY fans jaw drop. The confrontation between Cinder and Pyrrha was meant to happen since Volume 2. And after all the bad things that happened during Volume 3, we finally got to see this fight. While the ending was shocking, I still really enjoyed this fight.

This was Pyrrha's last fight. It is beautiful in it's own sad way. She did it because she had to. For herself this time.

This fight was one of the closest fights.

5 Team RWBY vs the White Fang

How can anyone not love this fight? This was the first time that Team RWBY kind of failed on their own mission. Yang and Weiss both lost their fights, Oobleck revealed his weapon and even little Zwei was shown to be much more capable than we realized. This was a great episode to watch.

6 Team RWBY vs Paladin

While it's nowhere near as good as the battle in Red Vs Blue with Caroline, Tex, Maine and York, it's still pretty good. The amazing teamwork from Team RWBY, Sun & Yang's semblance revealed and the proper introduction of Neapolitan.

7 Qrow vs Tyrian

Volume 4 wasn't as good as Volume 3 but I still enjoyed a lot about it. The fight Qrow has with Tyrian was excellent. These are two very well trained fighters going up against each other. Then both kind of get screwed in the end because of their fight. But I still loved it.

This fight wins for me for the simple fact that it contains such kinetic energy in it's movements. You really get the feeling that these are two fighter both with vastly different styles and their trying to kill each other.

Super awesome. Even though I love the first fight scene in season 1, the animators were still using poser as the animator. Whereas in The battle with Tyrian, it is a better quality fight. They are both equal to me but in this scene it is smoother and duh Qrow is there. Anyone else wanna see Blake or Yang fight Tyrian?

8 Pyrrha vs Team CRDL

Normally one against four would be unfair and give that one person a heavy disadvantage. But Pyrrha shows she's one of the best fighters by taking on all four members of team CRDL at once. She did it with style too.

9 Blake, Sun & Penny vs White Fang

This is just a jaw dropping action scene. We see Penny fight for the first time alongside Sun. Both characters were given good introductions and this fight helped me love those characters more. Plus you could tell Blake really wanted to take down Roman but she sadly didn't. However, she manage to make up with her team.

While many other fights surpass this in scope. This battle is the best in terms of choreography and the stakes are personal.

GUNCHUCKS. This scene is heavily underrated and missed. So much greatness in this battle, Blake's part is amazingly fast-paced and well executed.

10 Yang vs Neopolitan

This should be far higher. In fact, it should be no.1! Yes, other fights are more relevant to the storyline, but this one is amazing well animated, and on any RWBY website, this is everybody's favorite. One of the fights that's higher is the entire battle that this fight was a part of, but that's not it's own fight.

The Contenders
11 Raven vs Cinder

Epic choreography, excellent visuals, & a touching homage to Monty Oum's "Dead Fantasy" series. Loved it!

Amazing fight, I loved seeing two of my favourite characters battle.

12 Team RWBY vs Team JNPR

Best fight scene I have ever seen ever. The best part it was all food. :D Heck all the fight scenes in the first few volumes were the best. And this food fight was the top of that list for me

13 Team RNJR vs Nuckelavee

This was the beast that destroyed Ren's family and home. It left him an orphan. He wanted vengeance against the beast but he almost ended up getting him and his team killed. Nora had to bring him back to his senses and team RNJR end up defeating that Grimm.

14 Yang vs Mercury
15 Emerald and Mercury vs Coco and Yatsuhashi

The first time you really see how menacing Mercury and Emerald are. Also, nice foreshadowing for Mercury in his music. Besides, Mercury is just a fun character to watch duel. Shame this is really their only good scene. Still, if it had to only be one good fight, this was a good one.

16 Blake & Yang vs Adam
17 Cinder vs Neo

Very awesome fight, how is it not higher?

18 Velvet vs Atlesian Paladin-290s
19 Ironwood vs Watts

One of the most underrated fights in RWBY... We all saw how Ironwood used experience, sheer brute force and intelligence to finish off Watts

20 Qrow vs Winter
21 Cinder vs Ozpin
22 Ruby vs Torchwick and Neo

The fight between Neo and Ruby, though it was extreme short, was one of the best animated duels in RWBY as it was fast paced and was amazingly well choreographed. The added bonus of seeing how well Neo and Roman fought together also made you see how much history they had.

This should've been way higher. It is an awesome 2v1, but with multiple villains vs the hero instead of the other way around. It also implies the true motives of Roman Torchwick, which make him one of the best characters in the show. That is, before he dies moments later.
