Added DiffLines:

* HeelRealization: While Weiss has been moving away from her FantasticRacism for a while, it's not until she encounters Ferrous and learns his motivation that she finally realizes just HOW much she's been profiting from injustice.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Cinder is revealed to be about Glynda's age, but doesn't look like she's aged a day since they were both young women.


* BreakingSpeech: Salem gives a frightening and effective one to Ruby in the final battle, revealing that humans were in fact invaders and the Grimm were defending their world. It's only thanks to Juane showing up and giving her the resolve to fight that she's able to snap out of it.



* EvilFormerFriend: Cinder is revealed to be Glinda's.

* TragicVillain: Cinder's backstory. Basically she used to be an idealistic huntress herself, but then Glinda (not wanting to damage her pride) insisted on continuing a mission even though they were outgunned. Sure enough the mission blows up and Glinda's sister and Cinder herself die (or in Cinder's case survive and get recruited by Salem.)

* BadassGay: As revealed in the epilogue, [[spoiler:Yang and Blake.]]


* TookALevelInKindness: [[spoiler: More like dropping the JerkassFacade, but Raven is certainly far more pleasant in the epilogue than she was during the war. Acting closer to how she used to in the past.]]

** Qrow's reaction to William Schnee after being expelled from the Schnee manor. Unfortunately, his time in Cinder's captivity meant his tolerance took a nose dive, so this doesn't last long until [[{{Tsundere}} Winter]] finds him. [[CrowningMomentofFunny He spends the next strategic meeting in the corner with an icepack to nurse a hangover.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler: Salem has one in the final battle after Ruby regains her fighting spirit and goes into a SuperMode from combining with her friend's Auras. She furiously demands to know how Ruby can continue fighting even when confronted with humanity's wrongdoing and can only swarm Ruby with her gargoyles as she tries to flee.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EvilFormerFriend: Cinder is revealed to be Glinda's.


* RestoredMyFaithInHumanity: The tale of the Wizard is revealed to be an example of this in chapter 120. [[spoiler:After being forced to murder [[BornAgainImmortality his reborn daughter]] during the initial war with the Grimm, he isolated himself from humanity and refused to help them fight any further. The visits of the four Maidens, all of whom gave him advice and gifts, convinced him that humanity was still worth protecting.]]

Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: [[spoiler: Salem is entirely right in pointing out that humanity is the one who started the war, and that their reckless harvesting of dust is the cause of a lot of problems. However, as Ruby points out, humans have the capacity to change and learn from their mistakes.]]


* ComfortingTheWidow: [[spoiler: In the epilogue, Jaune enters into a relationship with Ruby, apparently to sooth the pain of losing Pyrrha. While the author tries to explain away the reason for this, there is no build up in the story hinting at romantic feelings on Jaune's side, though Ruby does have a number of moments throughout. It is rather obvious that, though it wasn't a last minute decision, it could have been played out better.]]


** [[spoiler: Qrow ''again'' in chapter 150 after being told he'll outlive nearly everyone he knows thanks to the fragment of the Witch's power he inherited from Raven. Boy does he need it.]]
