* Ruby, mulling over who she knows at Beacon, considers Yang, Jaune, and Blake as partners... before running into eye contact with the one ''other'' person she knows: Weiss. Despite their rocky relationship prior, neither party does does the BigNo, and they accept each other as partners with minimal fuss (beyond Weiss briefly checking to see if another candidate is nearby). Ruby even smiles shortly after eye contact and is happy when Weiss returns to her.

* So, [[spoiler: Cardin is Blackmailing Jaune]]. What makes Jaune decide enough is enough? Being forced to be their lackey? He can live with that.. An inspirational speech from Ruby? It's effective, but nope. Tasked to get a large amount of Rapier Wasps in the middle of the night? Nope (though admittedly he doesn't get stung for his trouble). An attempt to get revenge on Pyrrha? ''Oh yes.''

--> '''Sun''': I love these guys.
* The mere fact that everyone is willing to engage in this wholesale silliness is pretty heartwarming by itself. Yes, this would come naturally for Nora, Ruby, and Yang, but this seems like the kind of situation that Blake, Ren, Weiss, (and to a lesser extent) Jaune and Pyrrha would just as well like to avoid. That everyone jumps right into it without a second thought speaks to how much the teams have loosened up and become more tightly knit.
** When Ruby is haming it up with the "fallen comrade" scene, Weiss doesn't react. She's playing along as the "fallen comrade" in question. In other words, she's indulging her silly teammate.

* "Gold": A bubbly song that about being a protective, comforting, and generally positive influence on someone's life.
** And according to Jeff Williams, it's about [[CoolBigSis Yang's]] [[BigSisterInstinct relationship with Ruby]].
* Although the purpose of "All Our Days" is still unknown, the meaning behind it is very clear.
* "I May Fall": It's a song about the DarkestHour and the protagonists HeroicResolve to not die, [[TrueCompanions that with their friends]] [[PowerOfFriendship they can not, will not fall.]]
* "Wings": The ending credits song for the sixteenth episode, and a heartfelt anthem about enduring hardship, surpassing pain and finding strength in those who care about you.
* "Shine": The song from the JNPR dance in [=V2E7=]. ''The'' official Arkos theme song. It's basically Pyrrha singing about how Jaune saved her from loneliness and how much she loves him. Shipping feels! It can also be interpreted as a Bumbleby song, since Blake's and Yang's bond was stronger by the time of the dance.
* "Boop": A song about Nora wishing that she and Ren were "Together-Together". Also, when she says Boop, she's really [[CanNotSpitItOut trying to say]] "I love you".
* As noted above, the reprise of "Mirror, Mirror" gives the original somber and lonely song much more hopeful and positive lyrics, suggesting that Weiss's time spent with Winter and her experiences at Beacon away from her family are changing her for the better and helping her grow more confident as a person.

** After seeing Yang driven to tears, Blake instantly regrets insinuating that her partner is lying. She explains that her past experiences are why she can't really trust Yang after this, before admitting "But you're not him," and choosing to trust Yang after the latter honestly says that she saw Mercury attack her first.
