* When Yang is talking to Ruby at the end of Volume 3, she never ''directly'' mentions [[spoiler:her arm]]. There's a few glances and she's clearly depressed about it, but it's not on the LongList of problems she gives Ruby. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Depending on how optimistic you think Yang is]], this could either be Brilliance or Horror. The brilliance version is that [[spoiler:Yang is pretty damn strong, in body and in spirit. Both have been hurt, but given how she never mentions the arm it could be a hint that she'll jump back into action the moment [[TrueCompanions her team]] needs her, arm or no arm.]] The horror version is that [[spoiler:she's trying to ignore or avoid the problem, to little effect. This adds another dimension to her anger at Blake, as Yang might be envious of how Blake really did [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere run away from everything]].]]

* Right before Roman [[spoiler: is SwallowedWhole]], he's just finished his rant. Most likely, had that little thing not happened, he would have killed Ruby and been on his merry way, [[KarmaHoudini unscathed and escaping.]] Even worse, knowing [[SuperReflexesRoman]], there was about an 80% chance he would have caught the damn thing. Two seconds later, and he would be fine, his ArchEnemy dead, and living peacefully while everything's going to hell.

** And Roman's anti-Hunter rant comes right after he sees Neo [[AmbiguousSituation possibly die,]] so it would make sense, as he has likely just seen his best friend, a former Huntress, defeated by a simple trick.




to:

* Yet another Torchwick related one: Him being FauxAffablyEvil makes sense, as Grimm are drawn to negativity. So how does he dodge that little problem? Simple! He and Neo always seem happy, despite Roman's extreme cynicism. Because if he lets that loose, [[StepfordSmiler he gets killed.]] So, his statements about relieving stress while hurting Ruby makes sense. That is ''literally'' what he is doing.

* 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?]]

* 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?!

* 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? Calls into question both Ozpin and Raven's actions as not nearly being as noble as they seemed.

** Blake and Yang fit into this as well. Blake's eyes are yellow, which is Yang's thematic color, and Yang's eyes are normally violet- not necessarily Blake's main color, but a color closely associated with her through her outfit's leggings and the color her attacks usually take, among other things. Also, while not romantic love, the other color Yang's eyes take on is red, alluding to her sister, whom she definitely deeply cares for.

** This also leaves one to imagine that society in Remnant is pretty messed up, since anger and sadness 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]].

** To add to it, [[spoiler:Yang's extreme reaction to Blake's running away]] makes perfect sense. [[spoiler:Ever since Raven left home, Yang has had severe abandonment issues. She very nearly caused Ruby's death when taking a stroll in the Grimm-infested woods. She lashed out at Junior for not giving her the information for her search. And now, ''someone else'' who was close to her, her '''partner''', has up and abandoned her]]. It is entirely in character.
