The Recollection, also known as the Recollection Trilogy or simply Recollections, is the second saga in the main series that includes the sequel series: Reconstruction, Recreation, and Revelation. It also includes two mini-series: Recovery One and Relocated.  The saga takes place one year after the events of The Blood Gulch Chronicles and elaborates on numerous elements introduced in the first five seasons.

With the move to Halo 3, Rooster Teeth was able to utilize the game's features in order to expand the story in terms of character design, lore, and cinematography. The Recollection is also notable for being significantly darker than the Blood Gulch Chronicles, taking a more serious tone (while still retaining the series' comedic nature) and having a stronger focus on the story.

The main characters in the saga include Sarge, Grif, Simmons, Donut, Church, Tucker, Caboose, Lopez, Doc, WashingtonEpsilon, and Epsilon-Tex. Major recurring characters include the Director, the Chairman, and Delta. The primary antagonists are the MetaC.T., and South Dakota.

Recovery One is a Red vs. Blue miniseries distributed via Xbox Live and the internet that takes place after the events of Out of Mind, as well as during Season 5. Its plot revolves around Agent Washington, also known as Recovery One, who is a Freelancer like Tex, Wyoming, and York. Washington's job is to recover all Freelancer A.I. constructs and equipment of Freelancers killed in action by an unknown being.


The sixth season, Reconstruction, is a direct sequel to The Blood Gulch Chronicles, exploring the causality of events from both The Blood Gulch Chronicles and Recovery One. The story continues to follow Recovery Agent Washington's journey, tracking down a mysterious enemy called the Meta who is killing Freelancers and taking their armor enhancements and A.I.s. In need of assistance, Wash has to find the soldiers with the knowledge and experience to help him; namely the Reds and Blues.


Relocated is a direct sequel to Reconstruction, following the Red Team, now in Valhalla, struggling to do the usual nothing, and Caboose's strange actions at Blue Base, drawing further attention to himself.


The seventh season, Recreation, is a direct sequel to Relocated and Reconstruction. As the Reds continue to try and figure out what Caboose is up to and wake up a comatose Donut, Caboose continues trying to make a new best friend out of the Epsilon Unit. He finds the Reds' Hologram Chamber, with help from Donut, when Epsilon tells him about Tucker and a mysterious energy reading at a desert. When Grif and Sarge agree to journey to the desert with Caboose, in an attempt to put the Blues back in Command's database, the three meet a strange man there. Meanwhile, in Valhalla, Simmons, Lopez, and Donut fend for themselves as they battle against the elusive Meta.


The eigth season, Revelation[1], is a direct sequel to Recreation and the last of the Recollections Trilogy. In the desert, Epsilon seems to have no memory as to what happened to him, but he begins to have flashbacks. In one of his power failures, a memory of the Delta AI tells Caboose that Epsilon is looking for a specific memory. When Epsilon awakens, he and Caboose head off to a secret facility, run by F.I.L.S.S., in order to find it, with the Reds trailing behind them. Epsilon finds the secret in a mysterious bunker and unlocks something terrible: Tex. Meanwhile, Washington and the Meta hunt for Epsilon and have taken Doc hostage.
