Volume 1Edit

Ruby RoseEdit

Are you... robbing me?
—Ruby, to one of Roman Torchwick's henchmen
You're a Huntress... Can I have your autograph?
—Ruby, after being rescued by Glynda Goodwitch
I don't wanna be "the bee's knees". I don't wanna be any kind of "knees"! I just wanna be a normal girl, with normal knees.
—Ruby, after Yang Xiao Long describes her as special
Oh! Yang, gross, you have puke on your shoe! Get away from me! Get away from me! Get away from me! Get away from me!
—Ruby, to Yang after Jaune Arc passes by

The Shining BeaconEdit

Of course I'm happy with Crescent Rose. I just really like seeing new ones. It's like meeting new people... but better...
—Ruby, in response to Yang's inquiry on her love for weapons
But, why would I need friends if I have you?
—Ruby, to Yang shortly before the latter runs off
I guess I'm not the only one having a rough first day... So, what's (Blake walks off)... *sigh* Welcome to Beacon...
—Ruby, attempting to make conversation with Blake Belladonna
Aren't you the guy who threw up on the ship?
—Ruby, after Jaune helps her up
Well, I like it! Not many people have an appreciation for the classics these days.
—Ruby, talking about Jaune's weapon, Crocea Mors
It's also a customizable high impact sniper rifle. (A-what?) It's also a gun.
—Ruby, explaining Crescent Rose to Jaune

The Shining Beacon, Pt.2Edit

You mean since you ditched me and I exploded?
—Ruby, to Yang about her first day at Beacon Academy
Oh god, it's happening again!
—Ruby, after Weiss Schnee begins to scold her for a second time
As a girl, I wanted to be just like those heroes in the books... Someone who fought for what was right, and protected people who couldn't protect themselves!
—Ruby explains her motivation to Blake
Well, that's why we're here! To make it better.
—Ruby, responding optimistically to Blake's cynicism about fairy-tale endings in the real world

The First StepEdit

No more awkward small talk or 'getting-to-know-you' stuff. Today, I get to let my sweetheart do the talking.
—Ruby, telling Yang why she's looking forward to the initiation test
And secondly, I don't need people to help me grow up. I drink milk.
—Ruby, explaining to Yang why she doesn't need a team
What the-?! I don't need to 'break out of my shell'! That's absolutely-
—Ruby, in response to Yang telling her she needs to break out of her shell.

The First Step, Pt.2Edit

Birdie, no!
—Ruby, after hitting a bird during her fall
Gotta find Yang! Gotta find Yang, gotta find Yang, gotta find...
—Ruby, trying to find Yang
You came back!
—Ruby, after Weiss chooses her as her teammate
You're about to see a whole different side of me today, Weiss, and after it's all over, you're going to be like, 'Wow! That Ruby girl is really, really cool... and I wanna be her friend!'
—Ruby, trying to make friends with Weiss

The Emerald ForestEdit

What was that?! That should've been easy!
—Ruby, after fleeing from a pack of Beowolves at Weiss' behest
Well, I'm sorry you need my help to win a fight. I'm just fine on my own!
—Ruby, arguing with Weiss

The Emerald Forest, Pt.2Edit

Why can't you just admit that you have no idea where we're going?
—Ruby, to Weiss after they get lost
"Oh, just keep moving! Hurry up! Waaaah! Watch where you're going!" Why are you so bossy?
—Ruby, mocking Weiss and questioning her personality
You don't even know me...
—Ruby, to herself after Weiss claims to be better than her

Players and PiecesEdit

I'm not trying to show off. I want you to know I can do this!
—Ruby, explaining her actions to Weiss
...Normal knees...
—Ruby, after Weiss says "You're fine"
Think you can make the shot?
—Ruby, questioning Weiss' aiming skills

The Badge and The BurdenEdit

Good morning, Team RWBY!
—Ruby, to her team after waking up Weiss
Aaaalright! Weiss, Blake, Yang, and their fearless leader Ruby have begun their first mission! (raises her fist into the air) Banzai!
—Ruby, talking about getting their room ready
Or we could ditch the beds... and replace them with bunk beds!
—Ruby, suggesting a solution to the room's lack of space

The Badge and The Burden, Pt.2Edit

Yeah, represent teeeeam RWBY!
—Ruby, cheering on Weiss during her fight with the Boarbatusk
Is she right? Did you make a mistake?
—Ruby, to Ozpin about her suitability to be team leader
Uhh, cream and five sugars!
—Ruby, telling Weiss how she likes her coffee


It's just that, you seem a little... NOT okay
—Ruby, voicing her concern over Jaune

Forever FallEdit

—Ruby, in response to Jaune's self-depreciation
You've got a team now, Jaune. We both do. And if we fail, then, we'll just be bringing them down with us. We have to put our teammates first, and ourselves second. Your team deserves a great leader, Jaune. And I think that can be you.
—Ruby, lecturing Jaune about being a team leader

Forever Fall, Pt.2Edit

Whoa, you can control poles...
—Ruby, after hearing Pyrrha Nikos' Semblance
Magnets are cool, too...
—Ruby, after Weiss tells her that polarity controls magnetism, not poles

The StrayEdit

Uum... Yeah, sure. Why not?
—Ruby, after Penny Polendina asks if they're friends
—Ruby, to Weiss' defense of "Combat Skirts" in battle

Black and WhiteEdit

She does like tuna a lot...
—Ruby, after Penny reveals to Team RWBY that Blake is a cat Faunus
Look Weiss, it's not what you think. I should explain, you see, she doesn't actually have a bow, she has kitty ears and they're actually kind of cute...
—Ruby, trying to explain the situation to Weiss
Yeah! Team RWBY is back together!
—Ruby, after Weiss and Blake reconcile

Volume 2Edit

Best Day EverEdit

Sisters, friends... Weiss!
—Ruby, to the rest of Team RWBY and Team JNPR
I am not a crook.
—Ruby, to Weiss when being confronted about stealing her binder
Justice will be swift! Justice will be painful! It will be DELICIOUS!
—Ruby, to Team JNPR, right before the food fight
Weiss! Weiss!! Don't leave me! Noooooooooooooooooo!!
—Ruby during Weiss' "demise" during the food fight against Team JNPR.

Welcome to BeaconEdit

Yang Xiao Long, prepare your kingdom for battle!
—Ruby, to Yang during the game of Remnant: The Game
Okay, all in favor of becoming the youngest Hunteresses to singlehandedly taking down a corrupt organization that is conspiring against the Kingdom of Vale, say 'Aye'!
—Ruby, to her team on stopping the White Fang
None of you said 'Aye'.
—Ruby, quietly to herself after the team votes
Oh, and welcome to Beacon!

A Minor HiccupEdit

Oooh, look at me! My name's Weiss! I know facts! I'm rich!
—Ruby, imitating Weiss
Let me try! You can trust me!
—Ruby, pleading to Penny

Painting the Town...Edit

You think just because you've got nuts and bolts instead of squishy guts makes you any less real than me?
—Ruby, to Penny


Date or no date, none of this will matter if we can't get Blake to go.
—Ruby, to Weiss and Yang

Burning the CandleEdit

Stupid lady stilts.
—Ruby, regarding high heels
I'm just not much of a fancy pantsy... dancey girl.
—Ruby, to Ozpin

Dance Dance InfiltrationEdit

I'm sure we can handle whatever gets thrown at us.
—Ruby, reassuring Yang

Field TripEdit

—Ruby, reacting to Zwei arriving in the mail
We mail ourselves there.
—Ruby, suggesting an alternate method of going to the Southeast District
We've never backed down before, and we're not going to start now.
—Ruby, to the rest of Team RWBY

Search and DestroyEdit

Well, alright then. Looks like we're going to save the world with Dr. Oobleck-- okay, yeah, when you say it out loud, it sounds worse.
—Ruby, trying and failing to sound optimistic
But, uh, you hadn't told us to listen to you yet. So I didn't.
—Ruby, to Bartholomew Oobleck on why she brought her backpack
Get back in the bag.
—Ruby, whispering to Zwei
I'm a genius!
—Ruby, after Bartholomew explains how Zwei can help
Don't worry. Things will be better tomorrow.
—Ruby, reassuring Zwei

Mountain GlennEdit

Did they go in yet? One bark means yes.
—Ruby, to Zwei

Volume 3Edit

Round OneEdit

Hey, mom. Sorry I haven't come by in a while.
—Ruby visits her mother's grave
Oh, Dad's here, too! He's, uh, you know... Dad. He's still teaching at Signal. But he told me that he's going to be on some mission soon. I think he misses adventuring with you... I miss you too.
—Ruby, on her father
I guess it's like they say: "like mother, like daughter"!
—Ruby remarks that she is following in her mother's footsteps
Wish me luck... It was good to talk.
—Ruby bids farewell to Summer
We did it!
—Ruby, after Team RWBY wins their first match
Oh, shut your stupid little face...
—Ruby, responding to Emerald's flattery

New Challengers...Edit

Go get 'em, Jaune!
—Ruby, cheering on Jaune

It's Brawl in the FamilyEdit

The honor is in my... court!
—Ruby, trying to mimic Weiss and Winter Schnee's affected speech
I'll catch up- I mean, I will... reconvene with you both... at a later... juncture! At a juncture. Yeah.
—Ruby, trying to use long words
Oh no! Who would do such a th- That is my uncle! Kick her butt, Uncle Qrow!
—Ruby, when she sees Winter and Qrow fighting

Lessons LearnedEdit

You'll never beat me, old man!
—Ruby, to her Uncle Qrow
They do, and they're called silver!
—Ruby, on medals for "almost"

Never Miss a BeatEdit

Does she know about... y'know... beep boop bop, does not compute?
—Ruby, asking if Ciel knows Penny is a robot


Break a leg, sis!
—Ruby to Yang

Battle of BeaconEdit

Leave her alone!!
—Ruby, defending Pyrrha

Heroes and MonstersEdit

I don't care what you say! We WILL stop them, and I WILL stop you! BET ON THAT!
—Ruby, to Roman Torchwick

End of the BeginningEdit

I'll find them. I'll find them, and I'll bring them back.
—Ruby, about Jaune and Pyrrha
I love you.
—Ruby, to Yang
Then let's get started.
—Ruby, to Jaune, Nora and Ren

Volume 4Edit

The Next StepEdit

—Ruby falling through the trees
Alright! Come on team, let's do this!
—Ruby to Nora and Ren before engaging the Geist again
It's got a cute little bunny rabbit!
Nothin's gonna stop Team RNJR now!
—Ruby after Jaune dons his new armaments


So the next town is… uh-huh… uh-huh… We're lost.
—Ruby, reading a map


Of course it'll be there. This one's supposed to be pretty big! Hee-gan…bayn-a.
—Ruby, trying to pronounce the name of the town

Tipping PointEdit

What is this about? The White Fang? Roman Torchwick?
—Ruby, to Tyrian about why he's after her


No! But I won't stand by and watch someone get hurt!
—Ruby, to Tyrian
This is my fight, too!
—Ruby, to Qrow
Uncle Qrow? What's going on?
—Ruby, to Qrow

A Much Needed TalkEdit

I'm willing to do whatever I can to help because I trust you. But why couldn't you trust me?
—Ruby, to Qrow

Two Steps Forward, Two Steps BackEdit

They're gonna be fine, Jaune.
—Ruby, optimistically comforting Jaune after Team RNJR splits


It's all my fault. I should have never dragged you guys into this.
—Ruby, to Jaune about the journey to Haven

No Safe HavenEdit

You told me once that bad things just happen. You were angry when you said it, and I didn't want to listen. But you were right. Bad things do happen, all the time, every day. Which is why I'm out here, to do whatever I can, wherever I can, and hopefully do some good.
—Ruby in her letter to Yang, about their conversation after the fall of Beacon
We've all lost something, and I've seen what loss can do to people. But if we gave up every time we lost, then we'd never be able to move forward.
—Ruby, in her letter to Yang

Volume 5Edit

Welcome to HavenEdit

Pfft, we were fine. Only one of us almost died.
—Ruby, sassing Qrow

RWBY ChibiEdit

Now that's a katana.
—Ruby reading 'Ninja's of Love'
This. Is. Filth. Filth!
—Ruby to Blake, about her book

RWBY: Grimm EclipseEdit

Oh yeah!
—Ruby's character taunt

BlazBlue Cross Tag BattleEdit

Ah, this looks interesting. Mind if I join the fight?
—Ruby's intro dialogue
If it's a fight, I won't lose!
—Ruby's starting the round dialogue

About RubyEdit

She's a hazard to my health!
—Weiss about Ruby in "The Shining Beacon, Pt.2"
She's always wanted to be a Huntress. It's like she said, ever since she was a kid, she'd dreamt about being the heroes in the books. Helping people and saving the day, and never asking for anything else in return. Even when she couldn't fight, she knew that's what she wanted to do. That's why she trained so hard to get where she is today.
—Yang about Ruby in "Mountain Glenn"
