Outro Ruby: Wow, that power... I've just gotta know more about that thing!
Ragna: FYI, I ain't doin it.
Rachel Alucard
Intro Ruby: Awww, yeah! Here comes Team Rose!
Rachel: Make light of a rose and you may be pricked.
Outro Ruby: Yes! Victory for Team Rose!
Rachel: Do mind the thorns.

Es: No.
Mai Natsume

Outro Mai: Whew... We managed to win.
Ruby: Great! Can I see it now?
Yu Narukami
Intro Ruby: Wow, our opponents look pretty tough this time, don't they Narukami?
Yu: No worries. With my Persona and your Semblance combined, no enemy can stand against us.
Outro Yu: Victory is ours!
Ruby: Mmm~ Come back anytime and we'll beat you again!
Intro Ruby: No way! Look at all these weapons! Ah! So cool!
Aegis: Your eyes are so sparkly that I'm almost blushing.
Outro Ruby: We win! Yay!
Aegis: Ha ha... That was really easy.
Intro Labrys: I thought my weapon was huge, but yours gives it a run for its money, Ruby!
Ruby: Just wait until you see what I can do with it.
Outro Labrys: No one will ever make me hurt my friends again.
Ruby: You're so cool, Labrys.
Intro Hyde: If you're scared, you can just stand back and watch.
Ruby: Same to you, Hyde. You don't have to fight if you're scared of me showing you up.
Hyde: Roger that-wait, hold on!
Outro Ruby: Aw, it's over? It was just starting to get fun! Ah, too bad...
Hyde: Understand now? Even lady luck has given up on you.
Intro Gordeau: My Devourer will carve out your spirit.
Ruby: And my Crescent Rose will claim our victory!
Gordeau: Now let's get this party started!
Outro Ruby: Yahoo! That was so much fun!
Gordeau: Well, aren't you rowdy!
Intro Ruby: Whoa, what's up with those wings on your back?
Vatista: Battle sequence ongoing. Your query is not suited to my current status.
Outro Vatista: Beginning battle data analysis.
Ruby: Hey! Why won't you listen to me!?
Intro Ruby: I've heard of people like you... Yeah! Samurai!
Yuzuriha: Well, I'm actually a guardian and not a samurai, but... Aw, what the heck?

Victory Screen

Situation Line Voice
We're the most amazing partners, right? Totally in sync. I don't feel like we can lose!
Ah, I love Crescent Rose, she's amazing! What's your weapon? Can I see? Can I see?
Woohoo! Total victory! We are SUPER cool!
Oh, I'm so sorry... Did I go a little too far?
As the leader of Team RWBY... I've never known the meaning of defeat. Heh... Okay, out of character, but it was still pretty cool, huh?
Partner with Ragna Ruby: Whoa, your weapon transforms too, right!? And, it looks just like Crescent Rose! Hey, what other tricks can it do!? How much does it weigh? What's it made out of!? Can I hold it? Please? Please?
Ragna: Argh, shut up! Just-- stop talking!
Partner with Rachel Ruby: Say, why don't you use an actual weapon? I mean, you're pretty amazing the way you are, but still...
Rachel: There's no need. My grace and dignity more than suffice.
Partner with Es Ruby: Crescent Rose and I are one in the same! A weapon is a part of you! You can't live without it! Is that how you feel about your sword?
Es: A part of me... Something I can't live without... But that would be... Pudding?
Partner with Mai Ruby: This spear is so interesting. What's it made out of? Carbon? Ceramic? Ah... It looks like it can curve the trajectory of a bullet, but what's the force behind that? Ah... Oh, can it transform? What else can it do?
Mai: Umm... Can I have it back now...?
Partner with Yu Ruby: Woohoo! You're so cool, Narukami! You really are a kingpin!
Yu: (...How do so many people know that nickname? Is the Midnight Channel involved somehow...?)
Partner with Aegis Ruby: Now that the fight is over... Hee hee... Hey, Aegis, can we trade weapons for a while!? Just to look at! That's all, really!
Aegis: Dangerous enthusiasm and assistance detected. Retreating immediately!
Partner with Labrys Labrys: Now I get why you're the leader of Team RWBY. Ya got the skills for one thing, but you also seem to really enjoy fightin'. Can you teach me how to do that?
Ruby: When you're fighting, you don't have to worry about personal drama or anything, just the fight! Remember, simple is best! Ahh, that was fun.
Partner with Hyde Hyde: Whether here or in the Hollow Night, I can't avoid fighting. Sorry, Ruby. I'd like your help, but I don't want to subject you to these endless attacks.
Ruby: Nah, it's okay! As a Huntress, it's my duty to help those in need! Besides... It's kind of exciting! Hehe. ♪
Partner with Gordeau Ruby: I haven't met another scythe user in a really long time... Actually, Uncle Qrow might be the only one that I know. Anyway, good work, old man! I've gotta make sure I can keep up.
Gordeau: Good grief... Did you just call me "old man"? Do I really look that old? I've gotta take some time to process this...
Partner with Vatista Ruby: I'm faster than anyone, and I can move all over the place-- That's my Semblance! What do you think? Pretty cool, huh?
Vatista: Semblances... Auras... The phenomena achieved are immense versus their minor cost. Your people are possibly a risk factor. It seems that there are many variables we are yet unaware of.
Partner with Yuzuriha Yuzuriha: Hear your foes from afar and you shall see them when they are near! Now, feel the sting of my beloved blade Ayame, and-- Okay, maybe I'm overdoing this a little.
Ruby: Wow... So these are the secrets of the far east... I have to tell everyone as soon as I get back! Samurai really do exist!
Partner with Weiss Ruby: Heh! Nobody can stand against us! C'mon, Weiss! Let's go find our next match!
Weiss: I swear, that girl... She's always getting carried away. Sometimes I feel like she'd drive me crazy if I were anyone else.
Partner with Blake Blake: I'm a member of Team RWBY. I can't afford to disappoint. For my teammates' sake and my own.
Ruby: Aw, c'mon, Blake! You've gotta be happier than that! Enjoy the moment!
Partner with Yang Ruby: Hah! When my big sis and I team up, we're invincible! Hey, think we should team up with Weiss and Blake next time?
Yang: That's a great idea! C'mon, let's go find them!
