----
!!''A Harvest of Dust'' contains examples of:
* AbnormalAmmo: Roman's personal reserve stock, even more abnormal than the ones seen in canon and implied to be banned for regular Huntsmen use.
* AdaptationalBadass: Amber to a degree, she's not the force of nature seen in canon anymore but now became an ActionSurvivor and working towards becoming a team player. She's originally supposed to be dead or disabled all this time.
* CFVY's background is given some changes to explain Velvet's experimental weapon.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Roman Torchwick is willing to help the authorities out of pragmatism, but also shows more loyalty than necessary.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The Vale Council has grudges against Ozpin and sends Beacon's staff on a mission not expected to be successful. [[spoiler: Glynda may be involved in their plan, or may be a double agent between the Council and Ozpin.]]
* AdaptationalWimp: The Beacon team had many troubles with the resistance they encounter on Amity, because they are not willing to fully commit to fighting a misunderstanding.
* BigDamnVillains: [[spoiler: Cinder taps into Amber's consciousness to boost her Aura when she is in a standoff.]]
* CoolGuns: The author modeled a few guns after real world design.
** Amber's weapon is a Thompson M1928A1, which once appeared as a placeholder in the [[WebAnimation/RWBY Yellow Trailer]] used by DJ Deadb3ar.
** Cinder uses a MAT-49 sub machinegun in her Vytal match because she can't expose her Fall Power.
** [[Spoiler: Lin Shicheng's gun is based on the real world Calico M960, its smaller variant Calico M950 best known for a role in Anime/FateZero.]]
* ClusterFBomb: Amber is very liberal with using insults.
* CoolAirship: The ''Vigillant Ghost'', a Bullhead VTOL that's supposed to be the one used by Roman and Cinder in RWBY's pilot episode.
* DoomTroops: The original villain faction, Mistral's Freikorps, which is based on a historical militia (of the same name) that likely invented the trope's modern look. The Mistral soldiers are EliteMooks compared to the White Fang.
-> Our enemies take being shot at pretty well, if that’s a way to put it? They didn’t scatter for cover or scram, but form into two lines at Sloan’s gesturing, first line kneeling, to fire back at us. They’re soldiers after all, proving to be a cut above hired thugs or guerilla. Chest armor, Aura, faces behind balaclava, they have defense and guts complimenting each other. The team of Huntsmen officers stay at the center of their formation, observing what we are about to do next.
* FantasticRacism: Roman trash talking the White Fang:
-> “He’s a little bitch but I didn’t see a tail on him.” Roman interrupts before the doctor can say anything, “Faunus are born cowards, there should be at least two more guns aimed at that trap, strength in numbers and all that.”
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The First three chapters are more stream-of-thought and exposition heavy.
* ExpositionDump: Through television Amber watched or mental notes she made.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Mistral now also has elements modeled after real world Prussia.
* HesAFriend: [[Spoiler: Qrow managed to ease the tension on Amity for a while in this way.]]
* InSeriesNickname: Amber chose the nickname "Diesel", which only stuck with Roman.
* {{Interlingua}}: Mistral language is described as many other languages seamless merging into English.
* KillItWithFire: Amber has very basic control over the Fall power, but it's the spirit that counts so she trained herself in throwing fire and empowering her fists with fire.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The Amity operation introduces 9 original characters at once, as enemies.
* MoreDakka: Amber's approach to combat, after receiving a gun resembling the well-known Thompson M1928A1 from Roman.
* MythologyGag:
** Roman survived because he was not eaten by a Griffin but mauled by an Alpha Beowolf, which is originally planned by CRWBY as the way to kill him in V3.
** The Thompson gun from the Yellow Trailer.
* OhMyGods: Amber's particular way of swearing if she is not dropping a ClusterFBomb.
-> Jesus finger licking Christ this is pretentious. I must reply to things this far detached from human conversation.
-> Jesus H.W. chimney sweeping Christ on a Segway.
-> Jesus Finnegan Waking Christ.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Coco is trying very hard to act tougher after the invasion of Vale and fall of Beacon, people took notice but didn't have enough attention to spare for it.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigures: Subverted in the case of Ozpin and the rest of his crew, until Tai comes on board.
* ReleasedToElsewhere: Amber discusses it with Cinder .
-> In my hometown ‘let him see reason’ or ‘cure his alcoholism’ all means murder.
* SirSwearsALot: Lady Swears-a-lot, Amber. Usually in narration instead of conversation, though.
* ShoutOut: Usually listed at the end of every chapter.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Roman and Pyrrha.
* StateSec: Where Roman got his fighting and piloting skills from, the Vale Secret police.
* SuspiciouslySmallArmy: The Mistral Freikorps only sent a small detachment to secure Amity, though it still outnumbers the Beacon team. [[Spoiler: They are backed up by the Arma Festus system, an army of Grimm-controlled robots.]]
* SwissArmyWeapon:
** Ruby's gift to Neo is a karambit-style dagger with a derringer-style gun mechanism.
** An original villain uses a knight's lance that doubles as an energy cannon.
** [[Spoiler: Lin Shicheng's gun, a rifle with a pile bunker fixed onto it.]]* NamedByTheAdaptation: Ozpin is now Siegfried Ozpin, and Amber is now Amber Clercwell.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: The Amity mission even before it starts, as Roman come to heads with Qrow and then Coco. Tai settled the latter soon enough.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Amber's most common reaction to things about to happen around her, and she has good reason.
-> Holy shit, the sky is so dark in “real life” it’s only brighter than my future.
* UnusualEuphemism: Usually coupled with ThisIsGonnaSuck.
