Best RWBY Fight ScenesAs 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
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.
RED LIKE ROSES PART TWO!
That's my main reason for liking this fight.
Favorite song in the whole show other than Cold.
(A song that I cannot listen to without crying because I MISS PYRRHA, PENNY, AND MONTY OUM! )
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 trailers...in 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.
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...
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.
Great fight but sad
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.
All ways the best
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.
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?
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.
It's such a powerful moment when he calls her a bitch because I think it helps Ruby realize how deep into the adult world she really is. There's no coddling anymore and I love how prepared she is.
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.
this moment was when I knew...SHE was Born Champion!
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.
GUNCHUCKS. This scene is heavily underrated and missed. So much greatness in this battle, Blake's part is amazingly fast-paced and well executed.
this is when you first see sun and penny fight! And woah are they good!
WHY IS THIS NOT HIGHER? the story it tells
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.
This has to be one of the best because maiden vs maiden
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
How is this not higher it was epic
That food fight, though.
JUSTICE WILL BE SWIFT!
JUSTICE WILL BE PAINFUL!
IT WILL BE...DELICIOUS!
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.
the poor boi "broke" his leg
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.
Very awesome fight, how is it not higher?
Because Volume 6 didn't come out yet by the time this list was made lol.
That ending though.
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.
Fennic, Corsac and Ilia vs. Ghira, Sun and Blake
A classic. Well-balanced, beautiful air shots, lots of movement and strategy and one-liners. 10/10 would rewatch just for how pretty it was.
