* What would have happened if there were witnesses to Pyhrra's outburst with Jaune? ''Especially'' since people are already critical of Beacon's students after what happened with Yang.

* Back in Vol 2 Ozpin approved of sending RWBY on that mission despite it being far above their skill level. Even though he appears to be the wise mentor believing in his students they're badly outmatched and only luck and Raven showing up to save Yang keeps them all getting out alive. Except Ozpin clearly knew about [[spoiler:Ruby's eyes]] which required a TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening (typically the death of a friend) to finally activate. And he sent them into a situation where they would clearly be in serious danger (more so than usual). Was he hoping one of them would die or her own life would be pushed to activate them early? Furthermore what would have happened if Raven didn't show up? Neo would have killed Yang, and Ruby would have ended up clutching her beloved sisters corpse [[spoiler: Which definitely would have turned on her eyes]] Did Raven really show up to save Yang or was she just trying to prevent the latter from happening? And if it was to prevent [[spoiler:Ruby's power boost,]] why? Calls into question both Ozpin and Raven's actions as not nearly being as noble as they seemed.
* I just realized something. I heard that the Grimm Dragon's ability to spawn lesser Grimm, as seen at the end of Volume 3, was a sneak peek for the origins of the Grimm. If that's true, then all the know types of Grimm found in the areas around Vale originally came from that thing. And if so, then what could've spawned it?!

* Roman's rant gets worse when you think about what Cinder did to the White Fang. While Roman's certainly no saint, he has a few redeeming qualities. Cinder, however, ''does not''. He does just seem to be looking out for himself most of the time, but a death threat won't make him work with people he hates, he needs some show of forcd. What the hell did Cinder ''do'' to him to make him so willing to go along with the plan? And worse, he spent his time becoming the best criminal in Vale, possibly all of Remnant. She considers him useless anyways. [[spoiler: How powerful does Salem have to be do make it so that ''Roman'' is completely expendable?]]

\n* This troper might be over thinking things after watching RWBY Chibi, but when you look at Pyrrha's weapon, Milo, in it's sword form, it seems like an odd design for a blade. Its edge is golden, but the rest of the blade is red including the base, even though it's a solid piece of metal. Still, something about it seemed familiar. Then, after watching RWBY Chibi (and listening to a Lady Antebellum song), it hit me. It resembles a compass needle! Or am I overthinking things?

** There's also Weiss and Blake, who while they didn't end up doing as well as Ruby, none the less ended the fight developing a new level of their Semblences when they rescued Velvet and Yang respectively. Weiss and Blake who said their motivations to be Huntress's was to help people so they can make up for the Schnee family's mistakes and Blake's past as White Fang terrorist. While they aren't as honest soul's as Ruby who simply wants to help people for the sake of helping people, those are still selfless goals. Yang by contrast just wanted excitement, and viewed helping people as a convenient bonus and she was completely crushed and permanently maimed during the battle, didn't learn anything new and was of no help to anyone. Also Yang is the only one of the team completely confident she was one of the most badass people around, compared to Weiss who's well aware she's lacking compared to Winter, and Ruby and Blake who sat out after round one because they believed their teammates stronger than them. Yang was the most self centered of the team, and was ineffective as a result.

* In "End of the Beginning", Cinder is standing in Ozpin's office. She speaks to [[spoiler:the Grimm Dragon]] in a gentle soothing tone, and [[spoiler:the monster ''responds to it'']]. This raises so many unnerving implications for Cinder's connection to [[spoiler:the Grimm in general to be able to converse with one of the mightiest of their numbers]].

\n** In return, Yang's concept art has a [[IdiosyncraticShipNaming bumblebee]] on her pants. The fact that it isn't on her shirt (which can be hidden by her jacket) or her jacket (which can be taken off) means that in some way, they will always be partners despite the distance between them.

* The Volume 3 opening has scenes with teams RWBY and JNPR together, including them running full-speed at the invading army of Grimm. Then there's a scene with both teams falling from the sky, holding hands in a circle...until JNPR falls away while Ruby looks on in fear. This is followed by RWBY sitting back-to-back, with everyone but Ruby herself looking defeated.

\n* Minor one, but Blake's new outfit in the concept art for volume 4 shares many similarities with Yang's ([[SignificantWardrobeShift former]]) outfit, what with the [[BareYourMidriff Bare Your Midriff]] and all. At least Blake hasn't forgotten about her partner.

* While we haven't actually SEEN the other schools yet, the names do give a hint as to their nature: Beacon - A light that guides people to a predetermined destination. Shade - A place to hide. Haven - A safe place. Atlas - A map to the destination. Each of the schools probably operates in a manner similar to the name they carry, meaning that where Beacon seeks to guide people, Shade seeks to hide them, Haven seeks to protect them, and Atlas seeks to lead them. It would be a fitting theme for the academies, and leaves open the question: "Are there any schools that seek to empower the people, or do they all seek some form of control?"

* Due to Remnant's apparent cultural emphasis on individuality and self expression, up to and including allowing young soldiers to design their own weapons, it's not a stretch to assume things like minor body modification, changing your own name, and designing your own outfit are all also standard. Thus, we can assume that every character presents themself in the way they feel makes them look coolest. From Pyrrha's TwentyFourHourArmor to Ruby's ElegantGothicLolita, everyone is dressed to look cool. This also helps explain why many of the characters have a strong color motif- most people in real life have a favorite color to wear, or are otherwise strongly attached to their favorite color. This also might help explain the existence of [[MagicSkirt battle skirts]] and people who fight in high-heels, as well as other highly combat-impractical outfits; there's money in making clothes that are both fashionable and combat ready.
