There’s been some talk about the amount of lines every character in RWBY has had over each volume, so I thought it’d be nice to put it into something visual for ease of use. The last chart is just the top 20 characters with the most lines, obviously there are more
Volume 4 is the first volume where male characters have collectively had more lines than female characters. This has been an overall trend across the series however the swing was dramatic come vol 4
had the lion’s share of lines in volume 1 and 2 but tends get the same as other characters come volume 3 and 4.
Ruby, Weiss and Yang have had less lines every volume whilst other characters fluctuate depending on the plot.
Had it not been for Ruby’s monologue in the final episode of volume 4 she would have been in 3rd place for that volume.
Volume 2 is the only time that team RWBY has held all 4 top spots.
Father figures such as Qrow, Taiyang, Li and Ghira tend to speak more and have bigger roles than mothers like Kali, Raven and An.
A bit of background behind how these numbers came to be under the cut.
