Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Forty-One: Your Biggest Mistake
* Sealand is nearly mauled by an Ursa. It slashes Copper across the back from shoulder to hip and he bleed out on the floor.
* Canada's [[TheCorruption bloodthirst]]. He [[SlasherSmile grins widely]] and speaks in a guttural tone when Weiss stabs a Beringel.
* Tony does not seem to care if any people of Remnant are caught up in his weapon's explosion.
!!Chapter Forty-Two: All Things Must Die
* Salem uses her [[EmotionBomb abilities]] to snuff out Ruby's Silver Eyes and incapacitate the others. Thank the Gods that England's Semblance works as a counter.
* Salem ''breaks Myrtenaster and stabs Weiss through the shoulder'' with the broken end. For a moment, America thought Weiss was ''dead''.
* Salem grabs the sacrificial dagger and stabs America between his ribs.
* Just when the heroes think they are safe, the Vault begins collapsing around them. Without [[{{Intangibility}} Italy's Semblance]], they would have been buried alive.
* Ruby's destruction of the Relic of Choice, which is [[TreasureChestCavity inside America]]. She has to perform what is essentially emergency surgery on America with [[ImmortalBreaker the Relic of Destruction]]. One wrong thought or move could kill America faster than she could say "Oops."

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Nine: Ashes in the Wind
* During their fight, Canada uses his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Semblance]] on America to viciously MindRape him and leaves Alfred terrified, confused, and unable to remember what is currently happening to him. All he knows is that he is in pain and someone is attacking him.
* A Grimm gets its jaws around America's throat before Canada shoves it away.
* The damage the Relic does to America throughout the chapter. By the end, he's vomiting blood-flecked bile.
* The Relic of Creation and Knowledge's location is revealed. They're ''[[BodyHorror inside Salem's torso]]''.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Eight: Empty
* England uses his Semblance to turn the Grimm on Mercury. He screams as the Grimm [[FedToTheBeast tear him apart]].
* Canada's POV. The Grimm parasite has infected his mind and he's running on bloodlust. It's ''horrifying'' to see the sweet and gentle Canada so violent and bloodthirsty. He can only stop himself from going back and killing England, France, Ruby, and Weiss by focusing on another person's emotional pain. Even worse, that person he's focusing on is ''America''.
* The Relic of Choice is [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity tearing apart America's mind]]. The narration describes his mind ''splitting apart'' as it tries to comprehend all of the information and power the Relic of Choice gives him. The only reason he's still mostly sane is because he's a personification. If a human was in contact with the Relic of Choice like he is, they would [[GoMadFromTheRevelation go mad]].
* When Canada arrives, Salem takes control of him. Canada reaches up and begins strangling America, who had been tearfully hugging him seconds before. Canada does not struggle or try to fight the control at all. That's how strong Salem's control over him is.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Seven: Red Bullseye
* Roman's torture of America. He stabs and burns him horribly while mocking him all the while. America cannot allow himself to think about or wish for death because if he does, the Relic of Choice will kill him.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Five: Choose Wisely
* America declares he will protect the Relic of Choice with his life while holding it. The [[JerkassGenie Relic]] interprets that as a "choice" and ''sinks into his torso'' while burning him from the inside. It's so painful America forgets everything but the pain, even his own name.
* Salem cannot touch America so she [[TranquilFury calmly orders]] her Grimm to [[{{Synchronization}} destroy DC and Vale to kill him.]]
!!Chapter Thirty-Six: The Last Defensive
* [[TheMole Aster's]] Semblance makes his targets trust him implicitly. Germany falls to it and lowers his weapon, only to nearly get a bullet in the forehead. Prussia saves him at the last second.
* Not one, but '''three''' Spawner Grimm are headed for Washington DC.
* [[{{Synchronization}} America's suffering]] as Vale is attacked. He's in agony as wounds appear all over his body and he starts choking on his own blood.
* Salem cannot touch America. Roman ''can'' so Salem orders him to [[ColdBloodedTorture "break into the new Vault"]].
* Canada shows what he can do with his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia Semblance]] when he does not hold back. He erases part of Emerald's memory so she is unaware that she is hunting him and she lowers her guard. Canada immediately cuts off her head. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Holy shit]].

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Four: Twisted Tales
* Salem does not have Emerald hold a knife to Canada's throat to encourage America to open the Vault door. She has Emerald [[SlashedThroat slash Canada's throat open]] and relies on America's ensuing PowerIncontinence to open the door. It's yet another display of how ruthless both Salem and Emerald are.
* Salem leaves Canada to bleed out outside of the Vault door. America is carried over Hazel's shoulder and sees Canada struggling weakly in a growing pool of his own blood until he stops moving.
* The Grimm essence in Canada's body reacts to his injury by [[BodyHorror sealing the wound with its ooze]].

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Three: Goldilocks and the Bear
* The Ursa Spawner. It towers over the forest around it and bats the heroes around like nothing. Worst of all, it can [[HealingFactor regenerate]]. England has to completely vaporize it in order to stop it.
* Yang is nearly swallowed alive by the Ursa Spawner. Raven yanks her out of its jaws milliseconds before they snap shut.
* Roman slices up America's skin while he is unconscious [[ForcedToWatch in order to torture Canada]]. Canada keeps hallucinating and sometimes see Roman carving up his brother's corpse.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-Two: Now You'll Pay
* America's illness and fever has gotten so bad he's nearly delirious. He would have activated the sleeping spell on accident if Vale did not hastily interrupt him.
* America accidentally speaks to Vale out loud. Roman takes this as an opportunity to thoroughly search America for quote-unquote "tech he's using to contact the others". In reality Roman jumps on the opportunity to violently rip America's clothes off his body in a scene reminiscent of the one with the stepsisters in Cinderella. Made worse because Roman uses a knife to cut away America's clothes, leaving him shivering in his underwear.
* Roman uses his Semblance on Hazel to [[BystanderSyndrome stop him from helping America]]. His desire to make America suffer is greater than his fear of Hazel, and there is nothing he won't do to make America's life hell.


* The scene where Roman force feeds America is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything disturbingly comparable to a rape scene]].

to:

* Roman says he's been dreaming about carving America up with his knife as America [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything bleeds, writhes, and screams beneath him]], begging for death.
* Roman tells America he would happily shove [[TheCorruption Grimm essence]] down his throat if he had any on hand.
* The scene where Roman force feeds America is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything disturbingly comparable to a rape scene]]. America is bound and blindfolded when Roman has Mercury shove him down and hold him in place. America can only listen as Roman unzips something and presses something against his lips. America refuses to open his mouth so Roman squeezes his throat, causing him to gasp for air. Roman He the thing into America's mouth and lets him gag and choke for a bit before yanking it out. Roman mocks America and threatens to hurt him if he fights back or bites him. He holds America by his hair to keep his head still as he feeds him bits of the bread. America can do nothing but comply and hope the food isn't poisoned.

Added DiffLines:

* The scene where Roman force feeds America is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything disturbingly comparable to a rape scene]].

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty-One: Prisoners
* Roman was forced to discover his Semblance by Salem. "Forced" as in tortured until he unlocked it.
* Roman is more violent, aggressive, and unhinged; a far cry from the AffablyEvil criminal he used to be. He threatens America with a knife and wants to cut out his good eye. He claims it is so America can't see to run away, but clearly wants to do it to make America suffer.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Thirty: Recklessness of the Grieving Fool
* Canada's [[TheCorruption Grimm veins]] have spread over his body and his skin has become white. His appearance is changing and now he looks like '''[[HumanoidAbomination Salem]]'''.
* Canada's mental state is changing too. His aggression has become hatred, so much so that he tells [[TheCorruption Emerald he wishes he'd strung Cinder's headless body from Beacon Tower]].
* Roman and Salem begin influencing America's emotions before any of the heroes know they are there. They rapidly alternate between [[MindRape making America uncaring and enhancing his grief]] to the point where he is in physical pain and nearly blacks out. He is completely unable to defend himself when Salem's forces attack.
* Roman makes it so the outer group does not care enough to come to the inner group's defense. He invokes BystanderSyndrome to such an extent that ''[[AllLovingHero Ruby]]'' does not come running when she hears America and Penny screaming in pain.
* Salem stomps on Penny's head and slowly starts pressing down to crush her skull. Penny screams in pain as her vocalizer becomes distorted and she emits a [[HellIsThatNoise high-pitched shrieking noise]].
* Ozpin tries to take over Oscar as he fights Hazel, distracting Oscar and losing him the fight. The only reason Oscar is still alive is because Hazel does not think Ozpin is worth killing at this point.
* Salem knocks out the remaining fighters in the area with a single pulse of aura. She's ''that'' powerful.
* America has been captured by Salem's forces. Salem is about to win.

Added DiffLines:

!!Chapter Twenty-Nine: Explosion
* America considers suicide, in part so [[HeroicSuicide Salem cannot get him and win]], but also because of what Ruby [[YouShouldHaveDiedInstead said to him]]. Imagine saying something cruel to your friend who in no way deserved it (and who has mental issues including ''depression''), and what you said [[DrivenToSuicide nearly pushes them to commit suicide]]. What the ''hell'', Ruby?
* Seeing [[NiceGirl Pyrrha]] lose her temper. She [[SuddenlyShouting explodes]] at Ruby and [[WhatTheHellHero rakes her over the coals for blaming Alfred]] for Blake and Qrow's deaths before storming off to cool down. Ruby had it coming but seeing Pyrrha chew her out is a shock.


* The cage-like Grimm. It is a gigantic, hovering, Dementor-like EldritchAbomination with seven arms, an exposed cage-like ribcage, and dagger-tipped tendrils that form a tattered "cloak". It is almost completely invulnerable. Even its own daggers cannot harm it. Its tendrils can be cut, but it instantly regenerates. It can also teleport at the short range or is fast enough that it seems to vanish when it moves. ''And'' its daggers pierce Jaune and Pyrrha's shields with ease. Salem was not playing around when she created this thing.
* Blake tells America to run but he snaps he can't. The Grimm will teleport after him and even Ruby is not fast enough to avoid it. It will not stop until it has him.
* A single hit from the Grimm depletes Blake's Aura.
* America and Canada are grabbed by the Grimm and shoved into its torso. Its ribs close around them to form an impenetrable cage. They can see through its membrane but cannot break through it.

* The heroes cannot defeat the Grimm before it teleports away with Canada inside it. ''Salem has Canada.''
* Blake's death. She is struck directly in the chest by the Grimm's daggers and crumples in a spray of blood. Yang checks on her but she is already dead with [[DiesWideOpen her eyes still open]]. There is no final goodbyes or speech for her. She dies in an instant, so fast that her friends do not realize what has happened at first.

!!Chapter Twenty-Eight: Goodbye
* The Warden Grimm's attack cleaved Blake's heart in two. She was dead before she hit the ground.
* Salem [[BodyHorror used a few of her ribs]] to create the Warden Grimm. Her torso is now misshapen.
* Salem manipulates the Grimm essence inside Canada to cause him excruciating pain. It [[BodyHorror roils and writhes beneath his skin and through his organs]].
* A single touch from the Relic of Destruction has Canada screaming in agony.
