** When confronted by the fact that she has killed other human beings, Yang asks exactly how many people Rose has killed. Her response is to shrug and say she lost count years ago.
** At one point, she buys a bladed glove, which she then combines with her [[SuperSpeed semblance]] to create a weapon that allows her to casually put her hand into a {{Mooks}} chest and crushes his heart. She then takes out three different White Fang members in the same way in as many seconds, barely showing remorse.

** First, she has Mercury and Emerald poison the Beacon graduation feast, which kills half the Huntsman and Huntresses in attendance.
** Second, she unleashes Grimm on unsuspecting villages and towns to both weaken and discredit the remaining Huntsman while recruiting defectors, completely crippling the organization. By this time, the only active team left is Team [=RWBY=].

* [[HeroKiller Izhar]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Ravager]], the eldest drake. Thousands of years old and one of the few Grimm to be scary enough to get a name. It's wings are so dark the literally leach the light from the sky. It spends most of its fight against [[BadassCrew Rose, Qrow, Tai-Yang and Glynda]] simply [[JustToyingWithThem playing with them]], laughing at any attempts to fight it.

Weiss' father, in order to keep his opinion justified, had dozens of "legitimate" tests and studies to prove himself right and indoctrinated Weiss to his way of thinking.
