Waah! OOBLECK: “And victory goes to Penny and Ciel of Atlas.” Thank you for a wonderful time. RUSSEL: [groans] RUSSEL: Ah! [crowd cheering] Penny! Ruby! RUBY: [grunts] RUBY: [straining] Why… Ruby, this is my teammate. Ciel Soleil. Hi! I’m Ru– Ruby Rose, 15, hails from Patch. Leader of Team RWBY. Status: questionable. So… Penny! You two were incredible out there! How do you keep control of all of those swords?! It’s so cool– Penny! I believe it is best if we move on to our next location. Could we have just a minute to talk? So, is she… your friend or… Well, in a way. She’s like Blake. But if Blake was ordered to spend time with you. Oh! So, Weiss. Precisely! Does she know about… you know… “beep boop bop, does not compute?” Oh, no! General Ironwood doesn’t really want anyone to know. There was an incident with a magnet, but I was able to play it off. [laughing] Ruby, there’s something I’ve been wanting to talk to you about. I want to stay at Beacon. Penny, they’ll never let you do that. I know. But I have a plan. It’s been precisely one minute, ma’am! I’ll talk to you more soon, Ruby. PORT: “Our next match will begin in 15 minutes!” Oh my gosh, that’s right! It’s time for– YANG: Welp, now it’s our turn! WEISS: Just remember to keep proper form. YANG: [sighs] Alright. You’re from Atlas. What can we expect? Well, seeing as their kingdom, academy, and armed forces are all merged as one, I think we can expect strict, militant fighters with advanced technology and carefully rehearsed strategies. Or… whatever they are. FLYNT: Hey! You’re Weiss Schnee, right? The heiress. I am! I take it you’re pretty good with Dust, then. I do my best. Yeah! My dad was good, too. Owned a little Dust shop of his own… ’til your father’s company ran him outta business. Oh. I’m sorry to hear that. Sure you are! Hey! Why don’t you–? NEON: “Hey! Why don’t you–?” That’s what you sound like! Uh… NEON: Hey! Where’d you get your hair extensions? YANG: This is just my normal hair. Ooh, really? Yeah! Is that a prob–? You should try rollerblading sometime! It’s super fun! It’d probably take you a while though, since you’re so… you know… top-heavy. Excuse me?! Oh, here we go.

Get it? Because you’re angry. Too bad all that money can’t buy you skill. [cheering] Whoa! What’s this? It appears young Flynt has just activated his Semblance, and quite a remarkable one at that. Ladies and gentlemen! Feast your eyes on Flynt Coal’s… Killer Quartet! Ooh! Flashy eyes! You know, you’re actually kinda pretty when you’re angry. Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP! YANG: Get back here! NEON: I wasn’t trying to say you should go on a diet. I was saying you really need to go on a diet! YANG: THAT’S IT! You’re fat. What? [together] Weiss! It appears we have a double knockout on our hands! OOBLECK: In fact, it looks as though Miss Schnee’s Aura has been completely depleted. She sacrificed herself to take out Flynt. Wait a minute… what’s this?! PORT: “Ladies and gentlemen! Flynt Coal remains standing!” You did it, Flynt! Don’t worry about her, she’s easy! [whispering] But kind of annoying! PORT: “Ooh, it looks like Yang’s angry!” “And you wouldn’t like her when she’s…” [screams angrily] [screams angrily]
– “upset.” FLYNT: Yo, Neon, go! OOBLECK: “Ouch! Sour note for Flynt!” Never miss a beat, never miss a beat, never… miss a… beat? NEON: [screams] [buzzer] [cheering] Weiss! Weiss! Are you okay? [coughs] I may not be singing for a while. [sighs] You know, I’m not sure that was proper form. Oh, ha, ha– [coughs] NEON: [high-pitched] What?! We lost?! We lost?! Team FNKI lost?! That was… That was… amazing! Oh my gosh, you guys were super crazy awesome! We should definitely party together sometime! Right, Flynt? That was a gutsy move, Schnee. I dig it. BLAKE: Good job, you two! RUBY: Yeah! Oh! EMERALD: What? Oh, nothing. We’re just going to be making a slight… hmm… alteration to the plan. What does that mean? It means that this will be even easier than we thought. QROW: You know, he’s making you look like a fool. OZPIN: His heart is in the right place. He’s just… misguided. Sometimes, I’m not even sure he has a heart. So, have you chosen your guardian yet? Maidens choose themselves. I simply believe I’ve found the right candidate. Ever since the day I met her, I had a feeling she would be the one. She’s strong, intelligent, caring, but most importantly… she’s ready.
