** Or she just bought high-quality metal from the start - she was a celebrity and, most likely, from a rich enough family.

* Monty had mentioned that the character designs have more than a few pockets on them. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything His reasoning is so people who cosplay the characters will have places to put their phones, wallets, game systems, etc. while in costume]].

** More Heartwarming, and sadness. Ironwood's fleet was hacked because he never expected to be fighting humans. He lived in a time of peace, and just assumed that the only real threat he'd be fighting was the Grimm, so he probably thought more advanced firewalls were unnecessary.

* Actually, there is Fridge Brilliance to this as well. Why did Ruby call Jaune for help? Because, alphabetically, "Arc" would be the first name on her contacts list.

* On a more personal scale, let's imagine a romantic relationship between a huntsman/huntress and a regular person. This would be a recipe for disaster. You have someone who will be away from home on missions, potentially for months at time, who may someday come home in a coffin, or worse, [[NothingIsScarier go MIA]]. If the Huntsman/Huntress doesn't go KIA/MIA, their lifestyle will put a strain on the mundane half of the equation; look no further than real life couples with one half in the military to see the emotional messes it can cause. And huntsmen/huntresses may be superhuman thanks to aura, but they still suffer from PTSD/SurvivorsGuilt like anyone else, going by Ren's actions in Volume 4 that just scream PTSDTrigger.

** This also leaves one to imagine that society in Remnant is pretty messed up, since anger, sadness and fear are surefire ways to summon Grimm. We're probably thankful that James' idea of protecting people from Grimm is to stock the stadium with all of Atlas' armies and not [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul forcing people to remain happy]].
*** Perhaps this is because [[AscendedFridgeHorror the Kingdom before Atlas already did just that]] and Atlas didn't want to repeat the Great War.



** Of course, it could simply be that the FantasticRacism [[NightmareRetardant is more subtle and individual, whereas Yang's actions were sudden and the Festival is being broadcast worldwide]].
** Imagine suffering from a mental illness like depression or an anxiety disorder while living in Remnant. Not only are you already burdened with persistent negative thoughts, but you get the [[SarcasmMode added bonus]] of knowing that your despair could be drawing horrific monsters to the area. Which would probably just make you feel even worse and draw in even more Grimm...
** Which in turn puts Jaune's conversation with Pyrrha in "Jaunedice" in whole new light. Initially it looked like Jaune being [[IdiotHero Jaune]] when he thought she'd want him to jump, but when you know that Grimm are attracted by negative emotions it might actually be ''common'' to encourage people with heavy depression to commit suicide so their negative emotions would not endanger others. Jaune misunderstanding Pyrrha doesn't look so funny when you realise that people who '''are''' "''that'' depressed" might've been actually brought to such places for the reason he thought he was.
** Then there's the massive amount of AdultFear that goes with that. The people entering into places like Beacon are teenagers, who are in an emotionally fragile state of mind. No matter how well trained they are, the Huntsmen-in-training will feel negative emotions if not from Grimm then from the numerous challenges that face teenagers everyday. And with those emotions come an endless supply of Grimm. Not to mention the fear that their parents live must live in knowing their children are in danger's way so much, especially those who are also Huntsmen.

* In Volume 4, Hazel, one of Salem's associates, makes an offhand comment about them having dealt with 'Silver-Eyed warriors' before, and Dr. Watts then adds that it should be no trouble if they have to deal with another one. This means two things: Ruby's silver-eyes powers might've been useful against someone with a Maiden's power like Cinder, but might not be that much effective against Salem's other underlings who've been specifically trained to handle it, so the one StoryBreakerPower that Ruby has is not so breaker anymore, [[TraumaticSuperpowerAwakening assuming she can even make use of it again without having something bad happened in front of her first.]] Also, if Salem and her associates have dealt with silver-eyed warriors before, then it's highly possible that they are responsible for killing Ruby's mother, Summer.

* Following the finale, it's crystal clear that Volume 5 will feature the reunification of Team RWBY, and feature a more balanced fight between heroes and monsters. While the heroes' reasons for going to Mistral revolve around the pending attack (as noted in the finale's recap page), there is a less obvious reason why the villains are targeting ''it in the first place'' - sheer geography. Vale is still getting rebuilt, and every other city-state is either too hostile (Vacuo), too cramped (Menagerie) or too isolated (Atlas after the lockdown) for the villains to infiltrate without getting exposed. Therefore, it's ''little wonder'' that the villains are set to surface in Mistral; it's the only "safe" place in Remnant which can be infiltrated relatively easily (due to having the largest inhabited area of any kingdom ''and'' the largest criminal underbelly). Therefore, the heroes and villains ''must'' cross paths in Mistral; it's the only place where the story can ''feasibly be continued''.

** The lyrics throughout the video aren't exactly comforting either. It seems to describe Weiss losing herself to bitterness after the crappy life she's had and that she's turning into something horrible from it.
-->"Mirror what's this thing I see?\\
Who is staring back at me?\\
[[CorruptTheCutie This stranger to my heart has filled my mind]]!\\
Mirror...\\
Help me...\\
Who... am... '''IIIIIII'''?!"
** The song ends with the same notes that started her original trailer, where she sang about how lonely she was in the world. The flashback is where it all started.
