** Ruby rides in to a flaming village. [[spoiler: On the back of a giant Nevermore. Not only that but, to dismount, she ''rips it's wing off'' with her weapon.]]
** To emphasize her development, Ruby used to need to shoot [[SinisterScythe Crescent Rose]] to gain enough power to slice through an unarmored Beowolf. Here, however, she slices through them like nobody's business. [[spoiler: However, this may be [[JustifiedTrope justified]]. Since RNJR has been exploring for over six months, they likely don't have easy access to Dust.]]
** Ruby fighting an enormous, previously unseen Grimm called the Beringel. [[spoiler: She wins.]]
** Ruby has become so fast with her Semblance, that she can [[spoiler: split in to three pieces, spring in to the air, and ''create tornadoes''.]]
** Remember how it took all of Team RWBY working together to take down one [[BossInMooksClothing Nevermore]]? [[spoiler: Well, Ruby is now able to OffhandBackhand two over the course of the fight, and she barely even acknowledged the second one.]]

* A small moment, but it seems that Weiss now sees through her father's manipulation. When she asks if he's "''asking'' her if she wants to sing or ''telling'' her", it shows that she has grown from her experience at Beacon. Doubles as a TearJerker, since [[spoiler: she caves in to his demands.]]

* Villainous example, [[spoiler:Tyrian]] wiping the floor with R.N.J.R., until Ruby [[spoiler: charges Nora with an electric shot.]] Though it initially looks like one strike should be enough to send this madman scurrying, if not outright dead, the dust clears and we see him effortlessly blocking Nora's super-charged strike with [[spoiler: a stinger. He's revealed as a scorpion faunus and proceeds to utterly obliterate the team in a terrifying display of speed, agility, and power with all five of his limbs.]] Had [[spoiler: Qrow not intervened]], things would have ended right then and there.
** A big compliant with Volume 3's ending was that Pyrrha's death at the hands of Cinder and Ruby's Silver Eyes meant that skill meant nothing in RWBY anymore. Here, [[spoiler: Tyrian completely disproves that. Since he is neither a Grimm nor a Maiden, he cannot be affected by the Silver Eyes, making Ruby no more to him than a Huntress in Training. And to show how little that means, he utterly thrashes team RNJR by himself. To repeat, he beat three of the strongest Hunters at Beacon (and Jaune) whose skills have improved greatly since Volume 3 and Nora even received a power boost from her Semblance. Tyrian was outnumbered and under-powered and not only did he win but he won effortlessly.]]
** The moment when [[spoiler:Ruby charges Nora with an electric shot]]. At first, it looks like [[spoiler:Ruby fired a shot intended for Tyrian which he ''just barely'' dodged that hit an oblivious Nora instead.]] Tyrian laughs maniacally and triumphantly, calling the situation ironic and thinking he got out lucky. However, [[spoiler:we see Nora wreathed with lightning standing behind him as Tyrian slowly realizes what's just happened]]. The badass smirk [[spoiler:Nora]] does before charging forward is the icing on the cake.
** [[spoiler: Qrow]] [[BigDamnHeroes dropping in at the last second to save the day]]. Right when it looks like Tyrian is going to [[spoiler: [[EyeScream take out Ruby's eye]] with his stinger]], all of a sudden [[spoiler: Qrow]] swoops in, sword in hand, and blocks the strike with his back turned toward Tyrian, in an echo of [[spoiler: how he casually blocked Winter's attacks during their duel in Volume 3.]]

* Arguably, Sun's love for (and sense of protective duty towards) Blake qualifies. Even after [[spoiler:she slaps him around for his bad timing, throws away his scroll, and generally acts coldly towards him]], he still runs after her [[spoiler:when she unwisely decides to chase a White Fang scout]]. And even though her parents aren't much better at tolerating him, Sun [[spoiler:still has the presence of mind to warn Kali about the Fang's activities and promise to bring Blake back to her]].
* A bit of FridgeBrilliance awesome after learning what Qrow's Semblance does. [[spoiler:Despite having a Semblance that makes him and those around him have horrible luck, Qrow still managed to save his niece from Tyrian at the very last second.]]

* Weiss [[spoiler:manages to ''completely'' summon the Knight]]. You go, girl! And it [[spoiler:kneels before her. This one is completely under her command, unlike the wild summoning at the party.]] Weiss' smile as Klein comes in to see what happened sells it, as if she'd just acquired exactly what she needed.
* Weiss [[spoiler:glyphing the door shut on Whitley]].
* The chase scene between Blake, Sun and the White Fang spy [[spoiler: Ilya]] has Sun pinning the spy down with a dogpile of his own Semblance clones. Not bad for such a trickster.

* Consider [[spoiler:young Ren's situation for a moment]]. [[spoiler:His hometown attacked and destroyed, his parents dead in the chaos and now all alone. And yet, he finds the courage to run over to little Nora while Nevermores are flying in the sky, and one having just landed on top of the building Nora was hiding under, who could easily fly down and swallow him whole, and both protect and comfort her. Is it any wonder why Nora is in love in him?]]

** [[spoiler:Hazel]], as terrifying as it is to know he's there, deserves a little credit too. He doesn't know [[spoiler:Oscar]], doesn't realize he's just steps away from Salem's opponent. He thinks he's just some kid unable to pay for a ticket. So what does he do? [[PercussiveMaintenance Punches the machine]] so that a ticket flies out and gives him advice on overcoming obstacles. Considering who he's working with, one wonders if he's not in this [[SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness for other reasons beyond chaos...]]
