Trope misuse. Wham is where the plot is significantly changed to a new direction. The two episodes where that happened have already been listed. All the dramatic moments from the latter half of Volume 3 are just a continuation of that new direction.
** The second half of Season 3 in general features one wham moment after another in quick succession. Highlights (up to Episode 11) include [[spoiler:Ironwood's troops being taken over by Torchwick, Adam and Blake confronting each other, Pyrrha making her decision to take Amber's powers, Velvet's weapon finally being revealed, Adam stabbing Blake and slicing off one of Yang's arms when she attacks him in retaliation, Amber being shot with an arrow from Cinder right as Pyrrha is about to gain her power, and Cinder taking all of the fall Maiden's powers for herself with Ozpin ready to stand against her.]]

** ''[=PvP=]''. Cinder finally takes her plotting public, causing chaos right across the four kingdoms, but most especially in Amity Colosseum and Vale, confirming the entire story is going in a new, much darker direction. [[spoiler:Penny is graphically torn apart in the arena revealing to the whole world that she is a robot. Cinder then hijacks the global broadcast to ruin the reputations of Ozpin, Ironwood, all four academies, the Atlas army, and the concept of huntsmen. She suggests the people need an entirely new leaderships and method of protecting themselves. Her speech ends with the Grimm invading Vale and Amity Colosseum, aided by Roman and Neo, and the White Fang bringing the Grimm inside the city by airship.]]

A Wham Episode is something that changes the entire nature/direction of the storyline. It's not simply a dramatic episode. Removed non-examples and natter. Rewrote the rest to cut down the spoiler tags.
** "The Stray": Weiss and Blake have a nearly episode-long shouting match regarding the [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]], and Blake reveals that she is a Faunus and used to be in the [[WesternTerrorists White Fang]]. ** "No Brakes": In a sequence of individual duels taking place on a speeding train, Weiss is defeated handily by a chainsaw-wielding EliteMook, and Neo defeats Yang easily and almost kills her. RWBY fail to stop the train from smashing through the city's perimeter wall and hordes of Grimm break through the city and begin attacking people. ** ''Fall''. [[spoiler:There are four maidens who each represent one of the seasons and all possess incredible power - not only is Pyrrha in line to inherit the powers of one, but Cinder has attacked one and stolen some of her power. Also, Yang wins her fight with Mercury but is presumably tricked into breaking his leg and is arrested.]] *** [[spoiler:The reaction to said event sends a emotional ripple strong enough to make the [[OhCrap Goliaths stir.]]]] ** ''[=PvP=]'' has [[spoiler: the first major onscreen character death]], and also involves [[spoiler: a massive Grimm attack overwhelming Vale's defenses, Torchwick escaping from prison then taking over an Atlas warship and blasting two other ships out of the sky, the White Fang attacking in force, and doing so side by side with the normally indiscriminately genocidal Grimm.]]

RWBY fail to stop the train from smashing through the city's perimeter wall and hordes of Grimm break through the city and begin attacking people. ** ''Fall''. Remnant's history of fairy tales are discussed, and it's revealed that some of them are actually true stories that were deliberately disguised as fairy tales to protect humanity from panic and chaos. Certain fairy tales therefore reveal that the history and religion that hold civilisation together are completely wrong, and those that know the truth are either engaged in a question to obtain unimaginable power or to prevent the abuse of unimaginable power. Humanity has absolutely no idea what the real threat to their existence is. [[spoiler:There are four maidens Maidens who each represent one of the seasons and all possess incredible four Seasons. They were gifted with incredible, magical power - not only is Pyrrha in line to inherit the powers by an old man who possessed incredible, magical power of one, but his own.

* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', episode 18 radically alters the scene of events. First off, [[spoiler:the Inquisitors who have been menacing (more like annoying) the heroes for the last 14 episodes are gone, sent to the Warp.]] This would seem like a good change, until we learn that [[spoiler:Fulgrim and Abaddon are setting up another Black Crusade, apparently caused by Magnus' disappearance. And ''those'' two ''are'' going to be menacing.]]
