Webcomic / RWBY: Visions

Go To

RWBY: Visions is a rewrite webcomic based off of the web-cartoon RWBY. It revises the lore and characters in order to revamp the series.

The comic hasn't been released yet but there's info of it on Switchback's YouTube channel and the official sub-reddit.

RWBY: Visions provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Skimpiness: Yang's pants are torn to make her look rowdier.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Ghira and Kali Belladonna are now named Ghira and Kali Shanti.
  • Advertisement:
  • Adaptation Species Change: Faunus are a Human Subspecies, not a separate species.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
    • Blake's relationship with Adam is similar to how he's described in the first two Volumes. He's a mentor-figure to her, not an ex-boyfriend. He's more of a big brother than anything.
    • Sun is Blake's friend dating back from age 13-14.
  • Age Lift:
    • Beacon freshman are 18, not 17.
    • Ruby is 17, not 15.
    • Adam is ten years older than Blake, rather than being the same age as her.
  • Biker Babe: Yang is designed as a thrill-seeking biker.
  • Character Exaggeration:
    • Ruby's more socially awkward side is emphasized.
    • Blake's aloofness is exaggerated to the point of shyness.
    • More emphasis is put on Yang's adventurous elements and less is put on her Team Mom ones. She still has a maternal/sisterly side but her bombastic attitude is more central to her character.
  • Dude Magnet: Yang has had several boyfriends but they don't last long due to her abandonment issues.
  • Fantastic Racism:
    • The way anti-Faunus racism is predominantly displayed varies from area-to-area, Atlas views them as either literally inhuman beings who are to be studied or inferior beings to be scoffed at, while Mistral views them as lowlives and thieves; Mistralians also fetishize Faunus more than other regions. Vale and Vacuo are more neutral on Faunus and treat them better than Atlas and Mistral.
    • A lot of Faunus racism stems from fears that they might be White Fang members. As a result, many stores won't sell to them and innkeepers won't allow them in.
  • Fix Fic: Subverted. Switchback has stated on the sub-reddit that the story is just a way to express his love for the series as his own interpretation and is not a way of spiting the show-runners or an attempt to "fix" anything he finds wrong with the show.

  • Ill Girl: Weiss' mother Willow was sickly growing up because she never unlocked her Aura or Semblance.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Weiss' mother is named "Willow". This comes from semi-canon information but hasn't been confirmed as her official name.
  • Parental Abandonment: Blake's parents were killed by other White Fang members when she was seven.
  • Shrinking Violet: Blake is naturally shy but the culture shock of Beacon makes her even shyer. This causes her to clash with Weiss, who finds her wishy-washy and indecisive.
  • Tsundere: Weiss is described as one of these due to her upbringing. She was deprived a lot of things she wanted as a kid, so she secretly likes them even though she has a hard time showing it.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Ghira and Kali aren't Blake's parents. They're close friends who acted similarly to her godparents as a child.
