** At the end of Volume 3, Adam vows to Blake that he will destroy everything she cares about. When he sees her horrified reaction upon realising Yang is trying to find her, Adam decides to start with Yang, cutting off her arm when she rushes in to save Blake. Blake is so guilt-ridden that she goes on the run. [[spoiler:In Volume 4, Yang struggles to come to terms with the loss of her arm and suffers PTSD in the form of nightmares and flashbacks to Adam maiming her. When Ironwood, without prompting, commissions a state-of-the-art cybernetic replacement for Yang, Oobleck tells her that there are a lot of people who want her back to "normal". Yang only reluctantly accepts the arm and begins to wear it when she realises that the reason Taiyang isn't searching for Ruby, who has left to hunt the villains with only Jaune's team for company, is because Taiyang cannot look after Yang and search for Ruby at the same time.]]

** At some point in Mercury's past, he lost both of his legs and had them replaced with cybernetic limbs. This eventually becomes extremely useful to the villains. [[spoiler:Mercury is very sensitive to Pyrrha's magnetism Semblance and is able to assess her abilities after only seconds of sparring allowing him to gather valuable intelligence about her that Cinder can exploit. He is also capable of withstanding Yang's Semblance-empowered attacks and make it appear as though his legs are broken without being genuinely harmed. This allows Emerald to use her powers to frame both Yang and Pyrrha, and by extension Ozpin (as their headmaster), without Mercury being injured or anyone catching on.]]
** In the Volume 3 finale, [[spoiler:Yang's right arm gets sliced off by Adam, then the arm disintegrates. This event plus Blake abandoning her causes Yang to suffer a major HeroicBSOD and withdraw to her room for months. When she is later offered a cybernetic arm, she is too depressed to care.]]
