** Ironwood is strongly associated with The Tin Man. His name references him, "iron-" referring to the tin man being made of metal while "-wood" referencing the Tin Man being found while cutting down trees. Ironwood has a stoic, emotionless demeanor, an allusion to the Tin Man's lack of a heart, which is often associated with emotion. He also is heavily involved with robots, or "metal men", and later on we learn that Ironwood himself is partly metal His nation even treats his flesh and blood soldiers like faceless automatons.

* When Ren uses his Semblance to [[spoiler:mask Jaune and Qrow from the Nuckelavee]], he does so by touching the ground and casting it out. Now, remember how Ren was able to detect Tyrian from some distance away? Well, considering that his Semblance seems to work by [[spoiler:sensing and calming emotions]], then Ren's Semblance allows him to detect people through the ground by sensing emotion. Now, [[AvatarTheLastAirbender where have we seen that idea before]]?

** This isn't actually true, we first see it towards the beginning of Volume 3, he uses it on Nora to calm her down, we just didn't know what it was yet, and assumed it was simply a comedic effect by RuleOfFunny , when it was in fact, Forshadowing.

* Ozpin is based on the [[TheWizardofOz wizard]], whose full name is Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkle Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs, which spells OZPINHEAD, which is where he gets the name “OZPIN” from. Come Volume 4, guess where he is? [[spoiler: in Oscar’s head.]]

* Look at "Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back". The two people who took their steps forward did not partake in a fight at all, or if they did, they fought in the loosest sense of the term (an argument and a spar respectively) while the two who take their steps back fought both Grimm and a Huntsman in their journey by that point (The Geist/Tyrian for Ruby and the Sea Dragon/Illya for Blake).

** Not only that, but he’s the UNCLE of her sister’s team leader and partner. Just what kind of person is Ruby if she’s Qrow Branwen’s niece? Plus, from everything we've seen Weiss is the only Schnee Winter might possibly consider "family."

* Whitley's nature and name. Sure, it makes you think of white like the rest of the family but guess what else? Break it apart and you get "whit ley," in other words "white lie."

* Why everyone's names have to be based around colors. Some of the Western literature's most famous and varied fairytales were recorded in Andrew Lang's "Colored" Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's Fairy Books of Many Colors.

* When Ironwood finally reveals his signature weapon, the viewer may be surprised that it's literally just a gun instead of the Mix-and-MatchWeapon that the rest of Remnant uses, but if the viewer pays attention, you notice all is not as it seems...

* The Grimm are supposed to represent humanity's greatest fears right? The bigger the fear, the bigger/more powerful the Grimm. Bears are feared, but very well known, so Ursa are numerous, but not that powerful. Scorpions are more feared because they're rarer in most parts of the world, and very dangerous, so Deathstalkers are rarer, but even more dangerous. Crows/ravens/flying black birds aren't actually that dangerous, but the fact that most of them are scavengers made early humans associate them with death, and thanks to a [[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe somebody]] they're still associated with such death and bad luck. Thus, Nevermores are serious threats to Huntsmen. So, it makes sense that the single largest, most powerful, and most dangerous Grimm is a dragon, because they were one of humanity's original collective nightmares, created when we found [[EverythingsBetterwithDinosaurs gigantic bones of ancient lizards]] that were turned into [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons stories of flying beasts who can breath fire]].
