** Remember that Cinder prefers XanatosSpeedChess, not XanatosRoulette. She sets up as many things in her favor as she can, but alters the plan on the fly when things go in unexpected directions. It's quite likely she ''had'' no plan regarding Roman after he got captured, but his current role (collecting Dust) was over, and they butted heads a lot, so she just gave him orders to lay low and that she'd free him during the Grimm attack. When she did get him out, he happened to be in a position to take over the ship, but if he had been imprisoned somewhere else, she would have found another way to take the ship.

** I believe, given the fact it seems he never USES the sight looking attachment, that its function is mostly to just keep dirt out of the barrel if and when he uses it as a cane. It popping up is also a easy to see sign that the gun part is armed, at least for the one holding it.

** While likely Mercury made sure he lost, it's entirely possible (assuming he just messed up and accidentally over did it and defeated her) the back up plan was just for Mercury to maim Yang instead. It would have gotten the same reaction from the crowd and it wouldn't have mattered they were disqualified because they were planning on wrecking the tournament the next day anyway and were gonna expose themselves as villains to the world regardless.

** You ''can't'' assume Remnant uses the same practices for tournaments + competitions as we do; it's an entirely different world after all. And the tournament has a distinct randomization feature either way, so it encourages teams to do their best against whomever they're put up against - it's kind hard to find 'equal' teams when so many people have uncommon powers as well.

As summed up by Oobleck during the tournament: "Age and school year are irrelevant; the only thing being tested, is skill."

[[folder:Velvet Scarlantina's weapon]]

* While it is shown to be capable of some powerful and spectacular effects, it also raises a number of questions regarding its practicality. If the photographs are indeed one-shot use, as the show implies, how long can she use each individual photograph once they are activated? How does she keep track of which photos she has used and which ones she has left? How does she defend herself once her supply of photos is used up?
** The latter, at least, has been addressed by Volume 2; Velvet is quite capable of kicking Grimm around without using a weapon at all, and Yatsuhashi protects her. Coco's behavior in the fights also suggests that the team is well aware of her limitations and think carefully about the timing of her weapon usage, making Velvet their AwesomeButImpractical ace.
** Keeping track of which photos are remaining is pretty simple, it's a digital camera.
** As stated, Velvet handled herself against Grimm with kicks, so she does have some defense on herself. As for how long each weapon lasts, I think it's safe to assume they last anywhere between 5-10 seconds, assuming each one is used to the full potential before forcibly dissolving. Keeping track would be a matter of memory and her own camera, I imagine, the former being a sort-of muscle memory due to experience.

** Considering the fact that the characters can expertly use recoil/momentum/etc for their attacks and this was created by [[Creator/MontyOum Monty Oum]], who's [[WebAnimation/DeadFantasy DF]] had characters fighting normally while vertically-sliding down a building, it's safe to say that physics work normally until anything abnormal happens- then you're just supposed to go with it really.

** They probably were afraid she'd react like Pyrha did when told she could be a maiden. Go through incredible stress, be alienated from everyone else because she suddenly feels she's has a special duty and rush off and get herself killed trying to be a hero for the same reason.

** Why would we need to be told that? Pyrrha's explanation is very vague as to what Aura can really do. It's safe to assume that any weird physics-defying abilities are granted by either Aura or Dust.

*** Faunus are discriminated against in society, but not in the academies/military. Huntsmen/Huntresses are fighting to prevent MadeOfEvil monsters from destroying the world. They can't afford (institutionalized, at least) bigotry.

** Except we were never told that Aura could do that. Most telling is the fact that such an ability is completely absent from Pyrrha's explanation of Aura to Jaune in Volume 1
