* Amber's condition in Volume 3 was never seen before, which is why Ozpin's faction tried to convince Pyrrha to take her remaining power. In Volume 4, Hazel mentioned a prior encounter with Silver Eyed Warriors before. Perhaps Summer died releasing her powers to neutralize the Grimm Pools, ultimately draining them enough that Salem was forced to change her tactics.


He's called Junior because he's the son of an UnholyMatrimony pair of crime bosses/supervillains. As befitting the original story, Mama Bear's character and Papa Bear's character will be RedOniBlueOni: Papa Bear will be HotBlooded and physical, while Mama Bear will be TheStoic and mystical. Bonus points for Papa Bear being a BadassGrandpa.

[[WMG: Continuing on the above WMG, we will see a Grimm based on [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] ]]
As [[spoiler: the zombie-based Apathy Grimm]] confirmed, humanoid Grimm do indeed exist. It wouldn't be that much of a stretch to assume that a vampire-like Grimm could exist as well. They could look like humanoid bats and be weakened by sunlight in their normal state, but could assume a human form that's resistant to sunlight by drinking human or Faunus blood on a regular basis. Their main purpose would naturally be to infiltrate human society. However, as they learn to live among humans, some of them could come to sympathize with them and start [[HunterOfHisOwnKind hunting down other Grimm]] while [[TragicMonster struggling with their thirst for blood and destruction due to developping a human-like consciousness at the same time.]]

When Ozma was reincarnated with the Relics, it brought a sufficient amount of Investiture back to Remnant to generate a new Perpendicularity. (That seems to be the explanation for Threnody, Sel, and First of the Dawn.) As a result, the world began to see tourists from Silverlight and various other Shardworlds.

Shardworlds. Ozma's latent Investiture could also be which allows his Cognitive Shadow to repeatedly manifest in the Physical Realm, much like how the Heralds are anchored with Investiture to reincarnate on Braize.

[[WMG: The Grimm are finite in number.]]

In the events of "The Lost Fable," Salem threw herself into the Grimm Pool in an attempt to end her immortality. At the time, the pool was massive and deep. Fast forward to the end of "Our Way," where Salem conjures a Beringel out of a veritable ''puddle'' at what appears to be the bottom of the former lake...in other words, she has almost used up the entirety of the Grimm Pools, and will soon no longer be able to make any more Grimm.


* So, the Grimm are basically [[KingdomHearts Heartless]]?

[[WMG: Adam Has Silver Eyes]]
Nobody else has posted this one yet so i just wanted to get it out there in case it winds up being true.
We haven't seen his eyes, which i know is flimsy, but there's also the rose motif. I know Monty confirmed that Adam and Ruby aren't related but it doesn't mean they aren't connected story wise. There's a theory goin' round that Raven has a connection to Adam, maybe even trained him; maybe this is why: he has the same power as her best friend and team mate.
* I second this theory. So far, the only main character likely to have seen Adam without his mask on is Blake - who perhaps deliberately is the only main hero who, as of the end of Volume 5, knows nothing about silver eyes and their significance. It certainly would throw an interesting wrench into Salem's plans if one of her recruits turns out to be one of the very few people capable of stopping her.
**Jossed. [[spoiler:Adam does not have silver eyes and his eyes revealed to be sky blue.]]


Salem is colored like a Grimm, and she's shown to be able to control them. There's probably a special type of Grimm capable of corrupting a human into a human/Grimm hybrid, or some type of Grimm "commander" of sorts. She is possibly aiming to turn others into such "commanders", including Cinder (her arm is replaced with that of a Grimm's post-timeskip), and if the Volume 6 opening is hinting towards anything: [[spoiler:Qrow could become one too.]]

too.
*Jossed. Salem is the way she is [[spoiler: for being an immortal human who submerged herself in the God of Darkness' creation pool.]] That and the Volume 6 opening is probably more a reference to the Apathy Grimm.

** They certainly seem to be bioweaponish in style...dont need to eat but hunt humans, feed of negative emotions, learn from their mistakes...
** Seems as though the company from the game, Merlot Industries, are trying to make a stake in that regard.

* Jossed: [[spoiler: Grimm were created before humanity by the God of Darkness.]]

[[WMG: The Grimm were created by one or more of the Maidens.]]
In an example of GoneHorriblyRight, one or more of the Four Maidens, frustrated by the recurring history of conflict between the people of Remnant, often over what could be considered absurdly pointless things, created the Grimm to act as a common enemy for everyone. They wanted to create a threat so overwhelming that people would see war as a pointless endeavor, when there's a much more serious enemy to fight.

Pyrrha mentions three fairy tales: the two brothers, the shallow sea, and the girl in the tower. As of The Lost Fable, the shallow sea is the only story not told and linked to the Ozpin/Salem struggle. Perhaps an old Grimm, older than even Salem, is slumbering in a cthulhuesque manner, its very presence disrupting the sea levels around it, spawn slithering onto land in formless masses to watch the eternal battle and report back to the dreams of their master. Those eyes and tentacles in the V6 intro did seem rather shoggoth-like...

also team RWBY will have to talk with it, because of course they will.

[[WMG: The Nuckelavee was once human.]]

The Nuckelavee seems more intelligent/dangerous than an average Grimm, with the ability to actually strategize and even attempt speech (the screech is apparently its attempt to say 'die'). What if it's not a 'normal' Grimm at all? Maybe it's what happens when the dead bodies of a human and horse (or living one's that don't have Salem's immortality) get submerged in the Grimm pools?

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Remnant and the world in NiNoKuniIIRevenantKingdom are one and the same.]]
* With Remnant being later in the timeline. Guess is based on striking resemblance of Gods and Light/Dark Higgledies. Maybe Higgledies are their escaped essence?
** Or they used the same animation/texture engine, if you don't like the joke.

It's entirely possible that Rayse murdered the Brothers sometime after the Elder Brother reincarnated Ozma...
