- Tifa's loss to Yang, unfortunately, created considerable controversy with many claiming that the battle had been rigged due to DEATH BATTLE! merging with RoosterTeeth. Ben Singer stated that battle served to promote the third volume of RWBY but added that it did not affect who won. RoosterTeeth also stated that they did not care about the victor. This sadly did not end the negativity and the battle is not fondly remembered by many in the fandom.
