*** She becomes justifiably terrified when she realizes that even ''if'' she wipes out humanity, Ozpin will still have a body to inhabit: ''[[AFateWorseThanDeath Her.]]'''''''[[AFateWorseThanDeath Herself.]]'''''
*** She goes noticeably silent when Jaune notes that all of that can be avoided if she allows humanity to live.
*** The final push is the therapy session that Salem herself asked for. Trying to figure out how Ozpin is able to live and function far better than her. Jaune's response, while bland, is fairly obvious: [[MundaneSolution Mindless Busywork]]. While his primary goal is still to stop Salem, he also has to manage various other things that keep him occupied, whereas she would lay around being listless because she only had the one goal in mind, with nothing else to do. It's the final straw needed to let her allow everyone to live; making Jaune the only one to have stopped a immortal being on a relentless crusade - even if only temporarily for a hundred years - not through strength or strategy, but by treating her like someone who needed someone to talk to.


** He sends both Team RWBY and Cinder to obtain the Relic of Destruction from Salem's castle while she's busy conducting her siege on Vale. Playing to the latter's ego while informing her in no uncertain terms while still maintaining his mastermind guise that she has to keep the former [[IWantThemAlive alive]]. Along with that, he also [[CrazyPrepared prepared]] [[ProperlyParanoid beforehand]] a large series of letters for Blake to use in the event Cinder attempts to betray them. Playing up his [[DiabolicalMastermind Mastermind]] archetype that she's constantly gone on about throughout the entire story to keep her believing that it's in her best interests to remain firmly on his side.

** On the [[BigBad Salem]] side of things, to list in short order:
*** Jaune has a genial chat with the [[EldritchAbomination corrupted human]] over several hours. Giving her someone ''sane'' to talk to for the first time in god knows how long while he notes how human she still is, and in the process ingratiating himself with her while recognizing that she's suffering from depression from their first meeting.
*** He manages to get Ozpin and Salem in the same room to let her [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech hash it out]] with him, and finally vent some of her anger that she'd been holding onto for the last several millennia, further getting into her good graces for it, and for actively getting in Ozpin's way whenever he tried to get snarky.
*** Jaune shows a little of his ingenuity when, after getting challenged to combat by Salem, leads her onto one of the launch platforms used for Initiation, and then launches her out into the Emerald Forest, making her lose the battle and have to stay the night at Beac- er, sorry, [[InsistentTerminology Ozma Sucks Academy.]]
*** Everyone showers her with various goods invented by Humankind, while simultaneously informing her that all of it would be lost, should she actively decide to wipe them all out.
*** He makes her realize that if she obtains her goal, she'll have nothing left to [[AndThenWhat live for]].
*** She becomes terrified when she realizes that even ''if'' she wipes out humanity, Ozpin will still have a body to inhabit: ''[[AFateWorseThanDeath Her.]]''


* Jaune manages to [[DidYouJustScamCthulhu bluff Salem]], and making her sweat a little, into retreating by making her think he brought the other three Relics to her and was willing to summon the Gods and wipe out Remnant entirely just to kill her. In reality, he only brought Knowledge. Choice and Creation were actually a box of cigarettes and a broom.

* Cinder shows off the value of experience when she takes down two separate hordes of Grimm at once while Pyrrha exhausts herself fighting one. Made more impressive by Cinder using her newly received Winter Maiden powers, rather than the more familiar Fall Maiden powers which had been given to Pyrrha.

* Velvet's thorough [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech dressing down]] by Jaune. Having at this point been ignoring her team, usually by either hanging out with her old group and even another team of first years who were known racists up to a certain point, he points out to her that, no, she doesn't have to leave her current team behind, and could've made them friends with one another, but instead opted to act out of anger for her predicament and make the lives of everyone on her current team miserable by acting like a child.

--> '''Professor Arc:''' You're not ''sparing them the pain of being their friends'' by refusing to interact with them. You're not doing this out of kindness. You're doing it out of anger - and frustration. You lashed out, and did so at the first people who would take it. You didn't make Pyrrha feel like shit to protect her, you made her feel like dirt because you wanted somebody else to feel what you're feeling!

--> '''Professor Arc:''' The flaw in your argument, Miss Scarlatina, is that you don't have to leave them behind. Whether or not you got back onto Team CFVY, it's not like RVNN would implode. You could have remained friends with them, just as you do with your old team right now. This isn't like the date with the doctor. Being friends with RVNN and with CFVY aren't mutually exclusive - you can have both!

* The omake for chapter 27 demonstrates how Summer proved herself deserving of her position as leader of Team STRQ. After Raven spouts off her SocialDarwinist mindset of MightMakesRight, Summer puts her in her place with a beatdown so severe, Raven doesn't even remember pieces of it when she wakes up afterward. BewareTheNiceOnes, Raven.

* Once the Battle of Beacon fully unfolds, moments of awesome just keep happening one after another. There are no less than five BigDamnHeroes moments and three near-lethal {{HeroicSacrifice}}s, but perhaps the most awesome thing about the battle was Jaune and Roman smashing Atlas battleship into the Grimm Dragon. It is so awesome, that it pretty much makes Jaune into an InUniverse MemeticBadass.
