    Good fight. But, I have to call complete bull crap. The Meta was clearly kicking Carolina's ass. Church and Carolina together was working out but, they STILL got overwhelmed. All their crazy tools and they were still beat. Meta had them. Church just distracting the Meta and that actually killing him is beyond stupid and just shows Carolina was going to lose but needed a cop out by having Church distract him. The Meta has beaten Texas. Carolina beat WEAK clones of Texas as well. And, the Meta was no slouch in hand to hand combat but he was shown as this bafoon during the fight that just takes hits when he clearly can dodge and more with the best of them.

    what music is in the death battle part?

    I always knew Boomstick reminded me of somebody. Are he and Sarge actually voiced by the same person? And didn't Church have a human body or am I thinking of another Blue?

      Sarge is voiced by Matt so no Boomstick isnt the same voice actor. As for Church, after being "killed" in bloodgulch in season 1, they thought he was a ghost that could take over others bodies. In season 8, Wash discovers that Church is actually the epsilon AI (pretty sure, might have been alpha, havent seen season 8 in like two years), and that his body was just an Armor Shell, given to him by the director under protection detail of Florida (Flowers) in bloodgulch. I assume to keep him hidden from UNSC until the director needed him again.

    I did not know Carolina was a Church.... no wonder she worked so well with Epsilon.

      Hehe, yeah, some of the fans, like me, figured it out at the end of the season (Where We met Leonard[Oh my god I hate his name, I can't spell it right .-.]) and shared it almost everywhere xD Just like how Church is the Alpha and takes after Leonard, Epsilon is the same, because he's using Church's (The Alpha one) memories and personality from when he was in Blood Gulch. And he's not as much as a douche as Leonard is, so Carolina can deal with him xD


      I think they get together mostly because they've been through the same shit, plus having the Host-AI connection means they have to trust and listen to each other. During their absence during then Chorus Arc, something must have happened for them to actually trust each other. Probably trial and error lol


      Gd most of this was just me rambling about unimportant unrelated stuff... wow... sorry xD

      Especially when you remember that the reason the reds and blues were able to defeat Maine originally was because they had 'complete and utter faith in one another.' (Counselor said something along those lines to locus.)

    "LIKE BRUCE WILLIS" damm caboose i always loved you, and i guess sarge always loved his boom-stick
    plus this video proves is 1. we NEED the season 14 soundtrack, and 2. we need a rooster teeth fighting game (like mortal kombat or something), so we could have this kinda thing for ourselves and do fights between charaters cross-series

    Just a possibility Caboose vs Tex or Carolina. I say this because he kicked a lot of ass with the RvB simulation grunts back in one of the halo maps and that he kicked some ass out of those Tex clones. If he had to be paired with an AI again to match up with Carolina, it would have to be with O'Maley

    Pretty sure Carolina and Pyrrha are the same character. Top notch fighter, head of her class/unit, bright red hair and green eyes. Let's not forget her voice artist is the same. Until proven wrong, Carolina is Pyrrha.

    Also, Sarge's and Boomstick's father/son relationship, figured as much. Remember in Army Of Darkness, Ash's shotgun was referred to as his boom stick. Sarge favors the shotgun (a boom stick) that he cares for like it's his own son.

      Prove you are wrong? there is a few differences, Carolina is mean while Pyrrha is very sweet and charming who is in love with John, yes Carolina dose get nicer in the later seasons, but still can be mean. Then there is this.


      *spoiler Alert*









      Pyrrha Dies in season 3 of RWBY, Carolina is still alive.

    the problem with this episode is that the M374 and Carolina is don't move like the do in previous seasons and thus makes the fight feel off.

      There was a death battle between Yang and Tifa from Final Fantasy XII. Those Death Battles are actually a series, and has nothing to do with RT, unless they gave them permission to bring Yang into it, I don't think RT was involved.

  • IronLotus1997

    I am really surprised that Rooster Teeth never did this life and death battle between Carolina and the Meta before I mean she mostly did all the fighting anyway against these the big villains if this was a dream match and something people have waited years for why didn't they do it in the actual series I am not hating on Rooster Teeth or anything I loved the series it's just surprises me that this never happened in canon I am glad the Reds and Blues found a way to beat him and actually get a chance to shine for once and be heros! and season 10 finale was awesome I just wonder why I did not understand Rooster Teeth's way of thinking at that time however I am glad people are enjoying this I hope we get a RWBY Death Battle!! someday I know Yang was already in one episode agianst Tifa from Final Fantasy believe it or not check that out by the way but that would be awesome and yes I want to see other Death Battles with other RVB characters that would be cool too

      NatKayz that is true however the Meta was part of Project Freelancer when he went bad they could have had an awesome battle in season 11 I think it was which was the prequel season on Project Freelancer

    I wonder what would happen if RT ever decided to make an RVB and RWBY Death Battle? Or a crossover of sorts? Just a thought.

    They also forgot to mention that Epsilon has achieved metastability by using his memories of the other A.I.s to aid him in his calculations and processes. The Meta's A.I.s are all saying different things at once to Maine, but the memory A.I.s in Epsilon are working towards the common goal for Epsilon.

    Well if there is one thing we have learnt from this episode.. As well as previosu is that Grif can take a lot of punishment!


    I did go for Carolina and glad she won but there are times i can see Maine/Meta winning. Honestly i think it could have gone either way.

  • Vicarious31

    1 year ago

    Be careful guys, Hyon's Dojo is starting to show you up with these fights! lol Was still good though, well done.


    Have to say though, the Meta should have won, he was obviously stronger then her and the ONLY reason she won was cause Church distracted him long enough for her to reach a weapon that was not only out of her reach but too big and clunky for someone like the Meta to not notice. Was an Ex Machina style finish, a bit disappointing.


    But to be honest I went into this assuming she'd win, cause Screw Attack has proven to flub fights for different reasons and give some kind of total bullshit reason as to why, and Carolina is a major character in RvB while the Meta is definitely dead, so it only makes sense they'd dub her the winner no matter what.


    I would have recommended doing it the other way though, cause Meta was this super scary and imposing antagonist and you basically just dragon balled him, where the protagonists are now (or just one in this case) just stronger then the previous bad guy, trivializing him. If the Meta had won this fight Carolina would still be a badass in the show but the Meta would be that even more badass guy from the past. Now he's not even worth mentioning and she's in the exact same spot as she would have been if she lost.


    That's just my two cents.

    • Mr_LRB

      The way Death Battle works is that the victor is determined through the research, and the animated fight is just a way to make it more interesting. Therefore, the logistics of Carolina grabbing the Brute Shot doesn't play a part in the decision.

    While it was pretty cool, the animation sequence just didn't seem as good as the old ones. Like, the lighting and render quality was much better in previous seasons.

    Yaaahhh no, Meta would have won. Maine would have lost yes, but Meta would have won. That shut down was so temporary here, while epsilon definitely wouldn't have been able to use an effective healing so soon. Meta lost power way faster than he ever has before. Also if tex couldn't beat him than neither could Carolina. The Meta is the ultimate weapon, and at full strength he couldn't be beat. He lost after loosing all his A.I. and through pure luck and determination from the reds and blues. What would have been a better fight and could have actually canonized this thing is if Whiz and Boomstick where with the new republic and they asked about a fight between Felix and Locust during the war on korus. But then we wouldn't have that good Papa Sarge joke lol

      One thing you forgot to mention, dear, Tex is programmed to lose. Not intentionally, but she was remembered as a failure, and brought back as such. She is just code, and in that code, is a sequence that alters her ever so slightly to loose when it matters most.

    • Sithe124

      Ok while i do slighty agree that the Meta should've won in a way. i think that most of the reason that he lost power so quickly is partly because Carolina used a shock baton. im not completely sure if that would drain all the suit's power but im sure that some power would be lost. also in my opinion speed and agility beats brute strength. but then again the Meta was better then Maine. also we have to remember that while Sigma was attempting to gather a combinition of ai fragments to achieve metastababilty Epislon achieved Metastabability with the memories of the other ai fragments as we can see in parts of season 12. mostly episode 11: Long time no see. where the fragments of ai that Epsilon remember are working together towards a common goal. while for the Meta the ai fragments are all saying different things and are'nt working fully together. then again they didnt have Epsilon the final ai fragment Signa needed to achieve metastability. i still agree with you though. it seems RT tipped the odds in favor of Carolina because she was a main character.

      Tex lost because she was designed to fail. Church says so. She was a copy that was supposed to ALWAYS fail her mission. So that is an invalid point

      Tex being Allison (the woman the Director loved) was explicitly mentioned in the show... And Carolina being the Director's daughter was almost explicitly stated in the season 10 finale.
