RWBY Chibi is an animated show wherein the cast of RWBY takes part in comedic skits while portrayed in chibi form. It debuted as a part of Rooster Teeth's Summer of Animation on May 7, 2016. Season 2 premiered the following year. While it always debuts in the hiatus between RWBY seasons, Season 3 marked the first where Chibi started right as the volume ended, in January 2018, albeit with a mid-season break from March to June.
“Join the cast of RWBY in a new series of cute, comedy shorts with infinite possibilities! It's playing tag! It's baking cookies! It's posing as police officers! It's... really quite absurd. It's RWBY CHIBI!”
As highlighted in the sketch where Pyrrha Nikos is introduced, where Ruby claims to have seen her die but Nora interrupts saying "nothing bad ever happened, ever", Chibi is not restricted by the continuity and tragedies of RWBY (for instance, Penny Polendina and Roman Torchwick are also alive).
Still, a sketch features a brief visual joke regarding Yang Xiao Long losing an arm as she throws a book called "How To Arm Yourself".
All the sketches of 'Cinder Who?' are originated from RWBY fan art, with the authors receiving story credits.
Glynda (whose voice actress left Rooster Teeth) was only mentioned in "Cat Burglar", and her role as a fourth Beacon staffer is usually filled in by Winter.
Two sketches have story credits given to Amelie Alvarado, the young daughter of writer Tom Alvarado.
