Qrow Branwen Combat Analysis

So this is a big one for me personally. As somebody who got in to RWBY from the moment that first trailer was released, I have fallen in love with Ruby’s fighting style… Which she has appeared to have adopted or learned from her uncle Qrow.

Everybody in RWBY seems to have their own theme so I’ll start with that because music in media is the most effective way to set the tone and the atmosphere. Qrow’s theme is something mysterious, almost ominous and perhaps that’s meant to emphasize who he is, there’s something dark and gloomy about his music which makes sense as he’s a “dusty old crow.” It effectively highlights what he represents and how he carries himself in light of that; Misfortune.

Qrow vs Winter
This was (at least to Qrow) a sparring match. This battle was meant to introduce two very powerful characters and to expose enough of their personalities to give us all a general idea of who they are. Qrow is a man who calls bullshit when he sees it, but he doesnt appear to take the situation with Winter seriously, at least not in the surface. He is relaxed and playful but even when he isn’t sober, he is extremely efficient with his weapon and more than evenly matched with Winter.

Winter Schnee, on the other hand, is tightly wound and easily triggered by his insult to her organisation. She is young and reckless and forgets her place when provoked by Qrow.

By the end of the fight it’s easy to see he was just toying with her for his own kicks. My theory: I’m going to assume that he, like his sister, can kind of in a sense see into the future? It would explain why he put his weapon away. It made it much easier to pin the blame on Winter.

Qrow vs Tyrian
This fight was the grand battle of the season. Two well-established fighters in their peak and at the top of their game in a REAL fight.

This fight was really meant to display his true mastery in his style of combat and omg did it ever! Qrow is a god damn MASTER of his weapon and his fighting style. He is agile, swift, precise and calculated with his blade.

Qrow and Ruby’s fighting styles are so similar and they have similar attitudes in battle. Even though we knew he was her teacher and mentor as she grew up, we’ve finally been given a chance to see it.

When Qrow lost his weapon and he had the opportunity to get it, he kind of had this honorable and pure air like he was the token good guy and that made him better than Tyrian by default. When he finally DID retrieve his weapon which was stuck in the wall, he moved similarly to Ruby in her trailer when she was fighting beowolves.

It’s also worth mentioning that it was also made clear that Qrow is physically stronger than Tyrian as he was able to push back harder with both hands when he was telling team RNJR to stay back.

In both the Winter and Tyrian battles, we can see that Qrow doesn’t really exert a whole lot of energy when he fights. Winter was significantly more aggressive and forceful with her attacks and it didn’t seem to phase Qrow all that much. Tyrian was fast and attacked with all 5 of his limbs and Qrow seemed to be able to dodge (for the most part) most of his attacks with relative ease. 

Long story short: Qrow Branwen is a boss… But you didn’t need me to tell you that.

Natsu only wanted to walk the neighbor’s fluffy dog but some of the joggers are really tall and scary…

(I wanted to draw Natsu for a while and @askshiratorizawa ask for doggos for Ushi so… I guess that’s the result.)


Nina glanced from Inej to Kaz and saw they both wore the same expression. Nina knew that look. It came after the shipwreck, when the tide moved against you and the sky had gone dark. It was the first sight of land, the hope of shelter and even salvation that might await you on a distant shore. @lbardugo


Gascoigne being way taller than Henryk was used as a step ladder on more than one occasion. Henryk would stand on his shoulders to climb over walls or through open windows to unlock gates and doors and sometimes, when the old bones acted up, Good Guy Gascoigne would carry his partner on his shoulder. 

Henryk would sit there like a bird, just keeping his eyes open for anything.

Eileen thought that was cute and tried to make him wear a feather coat at one point.

He refused.

Gascoigne never admitted it but he was disappointed. He wanted his own little birdy. 

The End.
