** When the heroes first meet Robyn, she offers her hand to Clover when asking him to trust her, with the camera focusing on it and a faint shimmering sound in the background. Clover looks hesitant and doesn't take it. Two episodes later, the reason is revealed: Robyn is a LivingLieDetector who can automatically tell when someone is lying to her as long as they're holding hands.

** In Volume 3's first episode, Nora falls into a panicked rant while explaining what will happen if Team JNPR does poorly in the upcoming tournament, and undergoes ColorFailure as she's comforted by Ren. Toward the end of Volume 4, we learn that Ren's Semblance lets him calm his and others' emotions to hide them from Grimm, which manifests as their colors fading and turning washed-out. So that earlier incident wasn't a sight gag, but Ren trying to calm Nora down.

** Ruby's trailer is primarily a 'White' setting, while Weiss' trailer is primarily 'Black'. Blake's trailer is predominantly black and red as per Adam's color-scheme. However, her eyes are yellow, and her trailer ends with the camera zooming away from her as she turns into silhouette and disappears. Yang's first proper appearance in the Yang trailer is the exact opposite of Blake's ending - the camera zooms in on her approaching silhouette that transforms into full detail. Her setting rotates through all four colors in relation to which character the song is about.
** Blake's trailer has Adam and Blake raiding a train full of Dust sporting the Schnee logo, setting up the show's plot of the Schnee corporation's monopoly on Dust mining and sales, the Dust-theft and hoarding by White Fang, and the direct history of violence between the Schnee and White Fang organisations. Events regarded by the villains as "Phase 1" of their end-game.
** In Blake's trailer, she and Adam discuss humans as if they're excluded from that race. In the show, she is critical of Schnee labor practices. She gets offended when Faunus are insulted or bullied, her ear-shaped hair bow occasionally twitches like cat ears. She knows a lot about historical faunus/human conflict. She's confirmed to be an ex-White Fang cat-faunus during an argument with the anti-White Fang Weiss.
** In Blake's trailer, Adam is thinks nothing of killing humans, causing Blake to abandon him. In the show, we hear about White Fang's descent into terrorism after an internal coup; silhouettes of the three leaders show one looking rather like Adam's profile. In Volume 2, Blake sketches Adam a lot, and is worried about why White Fang is unusually working with Roman. When Adam returns to the show, it's clear he's working with Cinder in some way. In Volume 3, Blake reveals that she had a friend who slowly descended into cruelty. Adam is the White Fang leader Cinder coerced with her Maiden powers into helping her achieve her goals; when Cinder sets off her plan to wreck Beacon and reach Amber, the White Fang help by invading Vale to kill humans with an army of faunus and Grimm. Adam goes straight to the school to confront Blake, where he hints that Blake was his abuse victim, attempts to kill him and permanently maims Yang.

** When Pyrrha pins Jaune to the lockers early on, pulling back her spear is accompanied by the sound of a magnetic hum. She confirms her Semblance is polarity when she uses magnetism to raise Jaune's shield to give him secret aid against an Ursa. During a food fight, the full extent of her Semblance is seen when she creates tornadoes of drinks cans. "Destiny" reminds us of the power of Pyrrha's Semblance when she loses emotional control and accidentally slams Jaune into a wall. Secret RobotGirl Penny is confirmed to be sensitive to magnetism when she jokes about getting a magnet stuck to her head. Penny is eventually accidentally destroyed during the tournament by Pyrrha's full Semblance as part of Cinder's villainous plans; it also sets up Pyrrha's ability to fight a fully-powered Maiden despite being a teenage trainee; it's only after her Aura shatters, rendering her Semblance unusable, that Cinder finally gains the upper hand.
** In "The Shining Beacon, part 2", Blake is reading a book about a man with two souls, each fighting for control of his body. In the Volume 2 opening, red maple leaves are flowing off Pyrrha. Pyrrha is chosen to receive the Fall Maiden's powers through an artificial system that will place Amber's soul into her body. [[spoiler:This foreshadows the circumstances that will lead to Pyrrha's death. Afterwards, a drifting autumn maple leaf becomes a recurring symbol for anything Pyrrha-related.]]
** Blake's book also foreshadows events in Volume 4, where Ozpin's soul has become bonded with Oscar's, effectively resulting in two souls in one body. Later on, in Volume 6, Ozpin and Oscar do end up struggling for control over his body briefly, when Oscar realizes Ozpin is lying about the relic of Knowledge.
** As a bully-boy joke, Cardin shoves Jaune into a locker that is assigned to students to store their gear whenever they're in class. By entering co-ordinates into the locker, a rocket powers up, blasting the locker into the air and sending it off to an unknown destination. This sets up future battle situations where the kids are caught up in fighting without their weapons, and need to summon those weapons swiftly. By keying their pin numbers into their scrolls, the lockers near-instantaneously arrive at the requested location. Importantly, the joke makes it clear the lockers can easily carry the weight of people, which is also important for later events when Ruby rides a locker into battle and Pyrrha revisits the Cardin scene to send Jaune out of harm's way.
** In "Lessons Learned", Coco is confused and bewildered by an illusionary Yatsuhashi, leading to her defeat. Two episodes later, Ruby wishes Yang luck in her fight by telling her to "break a leg". Yang breaks Mercury's leg in defense after she already won the battle and he deliberately attacked her. But the camera and the way the crowds react showed that it was ''Yang'' attacking the downed Mercury unprovoked, leaving Yang confused and the audience wondering if an illusion was cast.
** In ''Breach'', it's easy to miss that Weiss conjures an ice blade during the fight. ''Lessons Learned'' makes a more obvious hint with reveal of the Schnee hereditary summoning semblance. It finally plays out in ''Heroes and Monsters'' where Weiss successfully summons a sword that easily cleaves an Atlesian Paladin but leaves her drained of energy.
** When on a field mission, Oobleck shows Ruby the giant Goliaths that do not attack, but rather grow more powerful as they wait for humanity to grow weak. He explains that Grimm may start out as weak and unintelligent, but they gain power, intelligence and patience as they age. Not only does this foreshadow ancient beings like the Grim Dragon but also the villain who's determined to destroy humanity, a woman called Salem who has the exact same black and white markings, and glowing red eyes, as the Grimm.
** When Ozpin and Ruby first meet in "Ruby Rose", he comments that she has silver eyes. At the beginning of Volume 3, Ruby wonders why Ozpin really let her into Beacon early. In the Volume 2 opening credits, there's a scene that zooms in on Ruby's eyes before whiting out and shifting to the next scene. In the Volume 3 finale, Ruby unleashes a massive blast of power from her eyes that freezes the Grimm Dragon and whites out the scene to the next, where she regains consciousness at home. Qrow tells her that Ozpin once revealed to him that silver eyes are very rare; people with them are destined to become mighty warriors with strange powers who are rumored to be able to kill Grimm just with a glance.
** Characters frequently remark on how certain Ruby is in her choice of career, as well as her determination to be a hero and fight injustice. Ozpin also warns Ruby that she can't spend her entire life on the battlefield, no matter how much she might wish to. This is all foreshadowing to the reveal of her nature as a silver-eyed warrior. As Qrow explains it, the silver-eyed warriors were fighters without equal, destined to become legendary heroes who could strike fear into even the Grimm.
** In the Volume 3 opening, Teams RWBY and JNPR are broken apart from their formation dive, and the camera focuses on Pyrrha falling into nothingness. At the end, Team RWBY is under the DramaticSpotlight and Ruby is the only one with her head up; everyone else has their head hung dejectedly. Both events foreshadow the fates of all five characters at the end of the volume. This is also somewhat played with, as the opening shows JNPR falling away in separate directions, while RWBY is together, but defeated. In reality, team RWBY is scattered, while team JNPR is defeated but (mostly) still together.

In reality, team RWBY is scattered, while team JNPR is defeated but (mostly) still together.



** Throughout the first two volumes and part of the third, several bits of dialogue by Ozpin, Qrow, Glynda, and others hint that the [[ThisIsReality enemy isn't going to wait for the children to grow up to act]]. After the events of the last episodes of Volume 3, Beacon is fallen, the Vytal Festival they've all been training for is rendered moot, team RWBY is scattered, and the heroes end what should have been a four-year education less than a year in.
** There's a few bits of foreshadowing regarding Qrow and his animal-morphing. Early on, Qrow is shown at a bar on the waterside well outside of Beacon, when Winter's ship is coming in, and a very short time later he's managed to catch up to Winter despite the fact that she was in an aircraft and was landing at a dock on the top of a cliff, several miles away. In the same scene, there's also a conspicuous shot of a crow or raven flying overhead.



** Adam's Volume 5 plotting is foreshadowed in the Volume 5 intro, where he flicks his sword out of its sheathe in a specific location. [[spoiler:Sienna Khan's bodyguards also wear the same style mask that Adam wears; they are loyal to Adam, not Sienna Khan, revealed when pulls a coup, killing Sienna and taking over leadership of the entire White Fang.]]
** In the Volume 4, Tyrian's blows seem to be damaging Ruby's aura, and Qrow's Aura seems to break rather easily when Tyrian finally manages to hit him. In volume 7, it's clarified that Tyrian's Semblance is [[ArmorPiercingAttack cutting through his opponent's Aura]] to attack them.

** Ren's clarification of how Aura works when Oscar is being trained - that it needs to be activated as a defense against incoming attacks, rather than being TwentyFourHourArmor - was indicated much earlier in the series, with Pyrrha wondering why Jaune didn't activate his Aura to protect himself from a swinging branch, and with multiple instances of characters being knocked unconscious or seriously hurt by attacks that came [[BackStab without warning]] or were too quick to detect and evade, i.e. Coco being hit from behind by Emerald, Adam cutting off Yang's arm with a single attack, and Adam [[spoiler:running Sienna Khan through the stomach]].

* FeministFantasy: ''RWBY'' an action-oriented series focused on an ExtranormalInstitute where students train to become [[HunterOfMonsters Huntsmen or Huntresses]]. The cast are all loosely based on various [[FairytaleMotifs Fairy Tales]], with Literature/LittleRedRidingHood starring as [[SinisterScythe scythe-wielding]] ActionGirl Ruby, [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White]] as LadyOfWar Weiss, Literature/{{Goldilocks}} as CuteBruiser Yang, and [[Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast Beauty]] as [[CatNinja Cat]] {{Ninja}} Blake. The cast primarily consists of women, all capable warriors in their own right and respected as equals by their male peers. It also features references to warrior women from mythology, in the forms of [[TheAce Pyrrha]] Nikos (Amazons) and [[GirlyBruiser Nora]] Valkyrie. According to WordOfGod, they intentionally avoided panty shots even when the heroines are jumping and flipping around in short skirts. Adding to that is the fact that only women can become one of the four Maidens and wield exceptional, magical power.

* FantasyWorldMap: The world map of Remnant.Remnant was one of the first things revealed pre-release, and it doesn't take too long for it to show up in the series itself. Supposedly, it started out as a stain on a napkin, and Monty thought it made for a decent map.
