* In Episode 2, when Ruby's team comes across the dying Huntsman, Jaune says that he and Ren will take turns carrying him to the next town. Some fans began complaining that Nora should be strong enough to carry him on her own, likely not understanding what [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_of_mass a center of mass]] is. It's not a matter of "Could Nora carry him", it's a matter of "Could Nora (who is one of the shorter characters) carry a much taller person without his weight causing her to fall over", as opposed to having Jaune and Ren (who are closer to the Huntsman's height) take turns carrying him.

* Blake's Volume 1 remark that she was basically "born into" the White Fang makes a lot more sense when we find out in Episode 5 that the previous, peaceful leader was her father.

** What's weirder is that in the first shot, when we see an over the shoulder shot it's correct, it's only when the camera switches to have the mirror in full screen (from Oscar's perspective) that it changes. Maybe that means that it's a change in his perspective and not something wrong with the mirror?
** [[spoiler: Also, when Ozpin talks to him, he doesn't turn away from the mirror, if Ozpin was physically in the barn Oscar would at least acknowledge it, instead, he keeps his eyes on the mirror the whole time, even when he is falling back, this implies that Oz is somehow communicating through the mirror.]]

** In other works a character like Penny would be the one to defeat the BigBad or someone like Emerald. [[spoiler:Cinder pits Pyrrha against Penny because it takes a character who could NoSell psychic attacks off the chessboard. Discrediting Pyrrha and causing her grief was a huge bonus]].

*Ruby is not facing her trauma. Think about it: Yang spent months in depression and suffered from hideous nightmares for just as long while Ruby seems to be just fine. Except those two shots we see of her looking sadder than we've seen her in the first two volumes combined. The mention of Weiss's family and when she wakes up from her second vision. Yet when faced with Juane, Ren and Norra she puts on a brave front and buries her own pain to help the others keep pushing. She is effectively ignoring her problems and the more that happens in the coming chapters the more tension is going to build. There _will_ come a point where Ruby can't take any more and just _snaps_ from the mental stress. And for someone with her power... the results will be devastating.

* A meta example: RWBY hitting CerebusSyndrome on the first Volume made after Monty died has set off some rather disturbing interpretations of what might have happened behind the scenes. While confirmed numerous times that the Volume was planned in advance and that the staff were simply going with the ideas, one could easily make a conclusion that either [[CreatorBreakdown the staff were so devastated with Monty's passing that they reflected that in the show]] or they took advantage of Monty's passing and wrote their own story.

* Ruby is seen multiple Dust types in the geist fight, despite using 'standard' ammunition up until now. Considering Weiss, who specialized in Dust usage, was her partner, it was only natural that Ruby would pick up a few ideas from her.



** The Grimm are the predators of Humans/Faunus. They prevent overpopulation which causes massive ecosystem damage (a real world problem when a species lacks a predator.) However they do this [[GoneHorriblyRight too well]].



** Silver-eyed warriors can kill Grimm with a glance, and can severely harm a Maiden. They keep both of them in check and check THEMSELVES- Silver-eyed warriors don't manifest their powers until they suffer from severe emotional trauma... Which is when they are most likely to be needed in the first place.

* Jaune's new armor is implied to be forged out of metal from Pyrrha's armor. In the first episode of Volume 4, the weaponsmith remarks on how good the metal was and wondered where on Earth (sorry, Remnant) he got it from. This makes a lot of sense because Pyrrha controlled magnetism, and since she spent so much time with her weapons, she probably altered their molecular structures subconciously to her advantage, to be more malleable, more susceptible to magnetism, stronger, lighter, etc. When she was forging it, she was also probably able to purify the metals in it, to get the exact concentrations for the best alloy for her weapons.
