Volume 1

Ruby Rose

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 Beacon

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.2

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 Step

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.2

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 Forest

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.2

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 Pieces

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 Burden

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.2

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 Fall

—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.2

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 Stray

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 White

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 2

Best Day Ever

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 Beacon

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 Hiccup

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...

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 Candle

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

Dance Dance Infiltration

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

Field Trip

—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 Destroy

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 Glenn

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

Volume 3

Round One

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...

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

It's Brawl in the Family

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 Learned

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 Beat

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 Beacon

Leave her alone!!
—Ruby, defending Pyrrha

Heroes and Monsters

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 Beginning

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 4

The Next Step

—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 Point

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 Talk

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 Back

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 Haven

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 5

Welcome to Haven

Okay! Okay. Things are bad; they're bad. But we can figure this out.
—Ruby, breaking up Qrow and Lionheart's argument
What is going on out there?! Can't a girl read her comics in peace??
—Ruby, as she comes to see what all the ruckus is about

Necessary Sacrifice

When Beacon fell, I lost two of my friends: Penny Polendina and Pyrrha Nikos. I didn't know them for very long, but that doesn't change the fact that they were two of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met. But that didn't save them. Pyrrha thought that if there was even the smallest chance of helping someone, then it was a chance worth taking. And because of that, she died fighting a battle she knew she couldn't win. And Penny... was killed... just to make a statement.
—Ruby telling Oscar about Penny and Pyrrha's deaths
I am scared, but not just for me. What happened at Beacon shows that Salem doesn't care if you're standing against her or not. She'll kill anybody, and that scares me most of all. Pyrrha... Penny... I'd be lying if I said that it didn't hurt, that I didn't think about them every day since I lost them, that I didn't wish I had spent more time with them. If it had been me instead, I know they would have kept fighting too, no matter how dangerous it was. So that's what I choose to do - to keep moving forward.
—Ruby telling Oscar why she keeps moving onward
Hey, Oscar? This isn't gonna be easy, but the fact that you're even trying says a lot about you. You're braver than you think.
—Ruby encouraging Oscar

Known by its Song

Yang, I... I'm so sorry! I- I should've stayed, and I should've talked to you more! I'd-- I just... I wasn't sure if you wanted me around and--
—Ruby's interrupted apology to Yang
I love you too.
—Ruby, after Yang tells her she loves her

Rest and Resolutions

C'mon, sis! Aw, you can't lose to a girl in a skirt!
—Ruby as she watches Yang and Nora arm wrestle
Weiss, you're not cheering loud enough!!
—Ruby, to Weiss

Alone Together

Aww, yeah! Nice Weiss strikes again!
—Ruby, after Weiss gives her coffee suited to her likings

The More the Merrier

You're wrong. We've done things that most people would call impossible, and I know the only reason we were able to do it is because we didn't do it alone! We had people to teach us, people to help us, we had each other. Work with us. At least I know we'll have a better chance if we try together. Please.
—Ruby, to Raven

Vault of the Spring Maiden

No, I'm angry.
—Ruby after Yang asks her if she's okay


Whatever it takes to shut you up.
—Ruby to Mercury after she headbutts him

Haven's Fate

That's enough! Just... give up.
—Ruby, to Emerald, Mercury and Hazel
That's all that matters. That we're all here together.
—Ruby, to Blake

RWBY Chibi

Now that's a katana!

This. Is. Filth. Filth!
—Ruby to Blake, about her book

Grimm Passengers

Hello, everyone. We have a lot of fun here on RWBY Chibi, but one thing's for certain, and that's that puns are no laughing matter. If you or someone you care about is known to use puns, please seek professional help. It's never too late to change.
—Ruby's PSA on punning

About Ruby

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"
I remember getting to know Ruby and thinking, "This girl is the embodiment of purity."
—Blake to Sun, about what word Ruby personifies in "Necessary Sacrifice"
In some ways, yes. But in many others, no. She has her quirks, her faults, just like everyone else. But she also possesses something unquantifiable- a spark that can inspire others even in the darkest of times.
—Ozpin to Oscar, answering if she was one of the best students at Beacon Academy in "Necessary Sacrifice"
If there's one thing I know about her, it's that she somehow always knows the right thing to do.
—Yang, about Ruby in "Rest and Resolutions"
You sound just like your mother.
—Raven to Ruby, on her hopes for stopping Salem together in "The More the Merrier"
