Added DiffLines:

* Penny lets her Aura out, unlocks her Semblance, and uses it to blast a hole straight through Watts's chest.
* Sun uses his Vacuo Semblance to create a giant sandstorm. It blinds the Grimm Dragon and allows Ironwood to kill it, at the [[HeroicSacrifice cost of Ironwood's life]].
* England {{No Sell}}s Salem's emotion-manipulating Semblance using his own Semblance.
* America uses the Relic of Choice to help Ruby control [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Silver Eyes]]. She wipes out swarms of Grimm with them.
* America, Canada, and Ruby kill Salem in a huge combination attack consisting of blue fire, the Relic of Destruction, and Silver Eyes.
* The nations' awakened Auras affected their people. Twenty years later, most people on Earth have Auras and Semblances like the Huntsmen on Remnant do. Terrans do not know those names so they call the people with powers ''superheroes'' because they use those powers to save people.

Added DiffLines:

* [[HeelFaceTurn Hazel]] manages to hold off Salem, Roman, and Emerald on his own. He [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome successfully escapes them]] too without getting himself killed.
* How America [[ManOnFire kills Roman]]. Preceded by this short but sweet TheReasonYouSuckSpeech:
--> "Little selfish Roman, always looking out for Number One. Betraying everyone that knows him just to keep on surviving. You've killed so many people. You escaped prison and death, but that is alright. Now ''I'' can choose your judgment." ''(America serenely lays his hand on Roman's chest.)'' "I choose death." ''(Roman bursts into flames.)''

Added DiffLines:

* After the airship crashes, America uses Vale's Semblance to vaporize thousands of Grimm at once.
* Seeing the heroes band together to defeat Salem's projected form. Complete with nation-RWBY-JNPR-Winter combo attacks.


Added DiffLines:

* Oscar fights Hazel to protect America and Penny. He loses, but the effort deserves applause.
* A villainous example: Roman uses his Semblance to incapacitate ''everyone''. This allows the villains to capture America.

Added DiffLines:

* Oscar wrestles control back from Ozpin to save America, Pyrrha, and Penny.


* Austria's left arm is trapped in the jaws of a Tiger Grimm. He uses the dagger in his right to stab it through the eye. It does not bring the beast down but it allows Lithuania, Poland, and Prussia to defeat it.

* America manages to evade capture at the hands of Ironwood and Hazel while stuck in handcuffs and a [[BroughtDownToBadass collar that drugs him if he uses either of his Semblances]]. He also does this [[UpToEleven while he is trying to escape a burning airship]].
[[/folder]]

Added DiffLines:

* With Jaune's Semblance enhancing her, Pyrrha manages to stop a gigantic Atlesian military airship from falling on the city. She maneuvers it so it fits between the buildings and gets it to the ground without it crashing and [[MadeOfExplodium exploding]].

Added DiffLines:

* Canada's final assault on Atlas. After she degrades America and explains his torture in detail, [[BewareTheNiceOnes Can]][[TranquilFury ada]] utterly [[CurbStompBattle wrecks her]], during which Atlas is tossed around like a ragdoll and gets an ice-shard through the eye. Its makes you wonder how powerful Mantle was before his deterioration.
* A [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice grievously wounded]] America uses the last of his strength to drag himself up Atlas's spear to slash her with his [[PoisonRing cyanide ring]]. It is that injury that ends up [[TimeDelayedDeath killing her]].

Added DiffLines:

* Atlas tries to brainwash France into forgetting his own language. He responds by cussing her out in French and declares Atlas will burn.
* America refuses to scream or show any reaction when Atlas [[ColdBloodedTorture tort]][[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice ures]] him. He merely [[DefiantToTheEnd stares at her in contempt]] and silently rejects her claims that she is superior to everyone and she will be Remnant's savior with a single shake of his head.
* Italy faces SE!Ruby despite knowing he stands no chance against her. He successfully stops her from killing Japan, and tearfully realizes he is going to die. He [[FaceDeathWithDignity accepts that]], and is glad to be a distraction so hopefully another person can stop SE!Ruby. Ruby's disintegrating silver light goes through him without harming him. At first Italy is confused and thinks Ruby [[ThePowerOfFriendship stopped herself]], but that isn't the case. He doesn't realize he unlocked his [[{{Intangibility}} Semblance]], but he uses it to knock SE!Ruby out before she can harm anyone else.

Added DiffLines:

* America's fight with Penny 2.0 and Ironwood. He holds them both off while trying to escape the mines, and burns Ironwood ''through his Aura'' to break free of his grasp.
* "Negative. My mission is to protect Alfred F. Jones. As the one who gave me that mission, logic dictated our goals aligned. [[PreAssKickingOneLiner That assessment is false.]]"

Added DiffLines:

* After being helpless for so long, America is finally able to fight back and blasts the AxCrazy soldier-- the man who tortured and scarred him-- to ashes.

* Lithuania kills the Phoenix Grimm by shooting it in the eye.
