Not sure I buy that. Jaune may be dorky and awkward, now and always, but his job is to kill. Not people, normally, but to kill. He can heal people now, but most likely he'll be using this power, once the plot wraps up, to help other Huntsmen to kill. He can be dorky and awkward over Cinder's body.
Barely sentinent monsters who's purpose is to find and kill stuff are quite different from an actual breathing person
Can Cinder even be called a person at this point? That Grimm arm is consuming her more and more, she's acting like a mad beast, and she was already rather heartless before then. Fairly certain Raven's line to her was the narrative indicating she is no longer human.
Most of her is still Human, even if she still has monster transplants.
....plus, That feels like cheating.
With situations like "our charachter can't kill a person...But hey! There a monster now! So freebie"
Even them is hard to said if Cinder is going to fight Jaune, so far she outclass him pretty badly.
Would comic book Charachters be kosher for charachter allusions?
One word: Tyrian.
To be fair, I think the issue of Killing is definitely starting to rear its head in the series. Thus far, we don't really know how common it is for Huntsmen to be expected to kill other people. And we don't know whether any of the older characters have killed in the past or not, but we do know that Blake and Yang have been struggling with killing Adam. It's the First Kill for the heroes' side, more or less.
As the conflict with Salem's forces becomes more vicious, there's going to be more times when the cast are forced to face that moral dilemma. At the moment, Huntsmen are for the most point monster hunters that may take on bounties but aren't required to kill as far as we can tell. In comparison, Atlas Academy trains soldiers and we see some conflict among the Ace-Ops over use of lethal force. Likewise, no one expected anyone to actually get hurt during the Vytal Festival in spite of it being combat-oriented.
Sooner or later, they're going to be faced with actually having to choose between sparing a dangerous enemy and killing them to remove the threat.
Oh I agree. I just don't feel it would fit with Jaune, especially as some sort of revenge for Phyrra.
That was intentional and/or directly. Conveniently, the first kill(s) were among the White Fang. And also one of the Albains.
They do acknowledge deaths during the breach incident, but that really can't be connected to Team RWBY. Those members of the White Fang died either in the train crash THEY caused or were killed by the Grimm they were transporting. It was their own faults.
The Albain brother that died because he was dumb enough to try to kill the person holding up the burning roof.
Those are cases of Self-Disposing Villain. The heroes can't be said to have killed them, solely because they couldn't save the villains from their own actions.
I get you have issues with the protagonists, but you do seem to really look for ways to blame them for things that aren't their fault.

I'm thinking of the suits of armor in particular, though. We saw that those had Faunus in them, who must've died really quite horrible deaths, very deliberate by the heroes, and all but played for laughs.
EDIT: This sequence I'm thinking of in particular.

Ah yeah the Paladin suits. (Which is interesting those kept getting stolen and always used against the heroes. Since Amity Arena revealed that Watts created them.)
Hmmm, I think that one is kind of up in the air. With Aura, they could have survived the destruction of the Paladin units. And if they did die, then that lands solely on Murder Corgi and Bart.

I have a vague memory that I can't find of one of them exploding bit-by-bit like a Star Destroyer, leaving nothing behind, which was frankly horrifying in a series with such (almost literally) bubble-wrapped combat. Then again, Neon's body disappears when Yang blows her up, and she was fine, so maybe it's just the art.

I noticed Wyld hasn't posted in awhile, making a new super long post responding to a bunch of our posts bud?
Oh my god I'm not the only one! Yay!
New crack theory
Ruby will be infused with a Grimm thing, specifically a wolf Grimm Wich will make her a Grimm werewolf
The only thing I have resembling evidence is The fact it seems early on She was supposed to allude to both little red riding hood and the big bad wolf
"Ruby's hair was originally going to be gray, because Monty wanted to evoke a kind of wolf-like appearance for her. He mentioned later that Ruby's current hairstyle still looks kinda "wolfy". Her cape was also originally going to have a muff-like thing around her neck, but animation issues restricted that."

Amity Arena update:
New card is Vine: "The Ace Ops don't really have a "partner" concept, but operatives Vine and Elm tend to pair up together. This may be due to the amazing synergy between their plant-like Semblances. Vine's ivy like arms, and Elm's root like feet give the duo the flexibility as well as the steadfastness to combat any situation."
Beach outfits for Weiss, Sun, Tock, and Ironwood.
Oh, I already had him. I just didn't post his bio cause it didn't really tell us anything we didn't already know.
Still, now the only Ace-Op left to join the game is Harriet... I'm fine waiting for her and would prefer anyone over her.
Over on Characters.RWBY Anima, thereís a potential edit war going on. North Wolf added the Hate Sink trope to Raven's page, but it was reverted by Ano Baka Desu as misuse. NorthWolf re-added the trope again, but since I donít want to get involved, I think that trope is misuse and should be removed. Thoughts?

They've been doing it on other pages too. And I'm fairly certain they're not gonna stop. They've made a lot of edits on MRRN, and looking at that fic's author makes it all but confirmed that NorthWolf and the author WinterWolf29 are one in the same. Evidence being that all of the edits North made are reflected under Winter's profile opinions on RWBY. So either North is just Winter's account, North is a sock-puppet account, or North is just parroting Winter's opinions.
Post in Ask the Tropers for some assistance.
I'll see what can be done.
The script for Volume 9 has been started, hooray.
Now if we can only get the volume 7 soundtrack.
Do you have any theories on what certain fairy tales in the book is gonna be about?
