    Monty Oum, the creator of RWBY from Rooster Teeth, was hospitalized on the 30th with a "Dire Condition". At the time, it was not known whether he would recover, however it seems now that he has passed away.


    It's definitely a shame to hear about this, especially when he was quite young.

    While I didn't get into RWBY, I thought Haloid and Dead Fantasy was just so awesome. R.I.P Monty.

    Thank you Tom for posting this, I was just on my way to do the same.

    Monty pioneered the blend of animation with machinima in Red Vs Blue, was an inspiration to aspiring animator a everywhere, and was a wonderful fucking person.

    His loss is a tragedy to the RoosterTeeth community, and words can't describe my devastation at the news.

    You will be miss Monty, your work is immortalized in the devotion you put into it, and we will never forget you <3

    in my room?
    I can't believe that he's gone.
    I remember watching Dead fantasy for the first time years ago and because of his work he inspired me so much.
    RIP Monty:cry:
    I wish if I had the chance to meet you in person :cry::cry:

    They don't want to say it was receiving a vaccine. That is my guess as to the "simple medical procedure that can cause an allergic reaction."

    Sad to see him gone at the young age of 33. I hope his friends and family well.

    OMG!
    This is terrible terrible news. I was a big fan of ALL of his work. I cant believe this.
    To those of you here who dont know him, please go to Youtube and look up, "Dead Fantasy". His work was absolutely breathtaking and his talent had no measure.

    R.I.P. brother

    I know him from dead fantasy, one of the most epic fan video ever made. now we will never see the sequels...

    for some reason I have suspicion he passed away because of overworking :(

    EDIT: allergic reaction?? what kind of allergy that can kill people?

    Peanuts, for one. People with a serious peanut allergy can die after eating like two peanuts. It's the only one I know that's both kind of common and lethal, but there are some very serious allergies out there.

    Any or better said all allergic reactions can cause someone to die just lactose, peanut and bee's are most common known to cause death. it depends on how severe your body counter reacts to the allergy, any food allergy can cause your throat to completely close. anything breathed can cause your air to close, any sting can swell to big for your blood or air to transport.

    oh my gosh, I actually have a mild allergy to peanut butter but keep eating them. after reading this, I don't think I will ever eat another peanut for the rest of my life.

    Honestly, if it's mild enough that you suffer no serious effects from eating peanut butter, you're probably fine. Not everyone with an allergy to something reacts the same. That said, peanut allergies can definitely be very serious.
