Top Ten 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 more characters deserve some character development and screen time. So these are the characters I believe need more screen time.
The Top Ten
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 more.

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

I hope she gets a backstory in either volume 7 or a character short. She’s my favourite character and she really deserves a backstory.

We need to know her backstory!

Ozpin Ozpin was the headmaster of Beacon Academy. 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's more questions about this guy than answers. What exactly is he? What's his power? Why does Salem hate him?

Nora Valkyrie

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


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

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. Which 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.

he's best boi, and is it bad that I want him to defect?

Emerald Sustrai

She was a street rat and used her semblance to steal. She joined Cinder because she had no where else to go. Why did become this way though?

One of my favorites

Possibly the most relatable character in RWBY.

where has she been all of volume 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?

Sun is best girl.

I want to know his backstory

the only kingdom that team rwby hasn't been at is Vacuo...Oh! Would you look at that, Sun is there...

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 him and Blake ever date at all?

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

Adam needs backstory!

I think he’s a jerk but I agree I would like to know more about him

Winter Schnee

I love the Schnee sisters and I feel sorry for them. There 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 her amazing fighting skills, amazing personality, need I say more?

Weiss is going after Winter next volume, hopefully she won't be in like 1-2 episodes and has more screen time.


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

She never even speaks! Yet she's so pretty and cool!

She needs more speaking time actually

I agree, because even though she doesn't speak, I love Neo's personality. Her design, magnific! Her weapon, bravicimo! Her character in RWBY Chibi... MOST. ADORABLE. THING. EVER!

The Contenders
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 powers is pretty cool. Now let's see more of her!

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

Her weapon though!

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.

We need her flashbacks. True.


Taiyang Xiao Long

Dad of the Year

Coco Adel

So stylish and cool!

I love her outfit and she is so amazing ^w^

Bad-ass lesbian bitch. How does she not deserve more screen time?

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.

I have a theory that she's a faunus. I mean her brother Qrow turned into a bird, and how can a human do that? She must be a faunus too

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" that I have to say?

what happened to her? the last time we saw her she was fixing beacon

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.

Jaune is forgetting her...

don't forget Jaune!


We need another Oobleck and Zwei team-up


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. more.

She's the Best Girl...she should be around more

she needs more attention! for being best girl, she is shoved to the corner a lot!

Qrow Branwen

can I have some backstory on him please


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.

Neptune Vasilias
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 more.


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. more.

We need his caffeinated ass
