** Perhaps one of the biggest examples of this is how the author originally subscribed to the [[RonTheDeathEater "Evil Ozpin"]] theory, and so many of his interactions with members of Team [=SAPR=] are written so that if the author had decided to commit to that idea they could be taken in that light. That purposeful ambiguity would turn out to serve the author well when he decided to not only keep Ozpin as the BigGood he is in canon, but also to go a step further by having a landmark in Sunset's redemption being [[spoiler:her realizing just how good he is]].
** She also repeatedly says that she's not a leader, even though she's of royal blood and people constantly look up to her. [[spoiler:This turns out to be accurate when she's given the leadership of Team SAPR and then later that same day given command of Mistral's army during the Battle of Vale, and both times she turns out to be just as terrible a leader as she said she would be even when trying her hardest to live up to the burden she was given]].
** Sunset was adopted by Princess Celestia.
** Pyrrha is from the deposed Mistral royal family.
