This fan fiction can be read here.

  • All There in the Manual: Mission 2 had Ozpin claim he knew Sparda right in front of Dante. This wouldn't be expanded upon until a Writing Prompt Wednesday on Reddit.
  • Alternate Continuity: This fic was written shortly after Volume 4 premiered, so various plot points such as Raven being a maiden was thrown out the wayside.
  • Big "NO!": Following a series of Little No's that Salem mutters upon seeing Vergil for the first time
  • Advertisement:
  • Big "WHAT?!": This is Ruby's and Weiss' reactions to finding out that Dante have never heard of Beacon Academy until now.
    Dante: And Beacon is... what again?
    Ruby and Weiss: WHAT?
  • Blunt "Yes": Happens twice during Qrow's segment in Mission 4
  • Break the Haughty: Raven, leader of a tribe of pillagers and murderers, gets utterly sacked by Vergil, which not only severely wounds her pride, but also caused her to fear returning back to her tribe since Qrow brings up the fact that the Legend of Sparda has been lost to time on Remnant, and without undeniable proof that Raven really did fought his son, there is a good chance that they could kill her on the spot for supposedly abandoning them. She even suffered a nightmare where Vergil endlessly mocked her for her loss, ending with her daughter Yang being instated as the new tribe leader, killing Raven on the spot for Parental Abandonment. Even Qrow was surprised on how badly this messed her up.
  • Call-Forward: Most of which are instigated on Vergil's behalf.
    • His entry to Remnant has him fighting off against in army of Grimm in the same ruined village Ruby was in in her Volume 4 trailer.
    • Cinder introduces Vergil to Salem's group, who wouldn't be introduced in the show's proper until the Volume 4 premiere.
    • As Vergil reads up on the various Grimm species, he informs himself on the Geists, the Griffins. and the Nuckleavee.
    • Ruby recites the infamous "Dark soul with light" line in Mission 8, as she hold Blake in her arms instead of Weiss.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: A few.
    • Dante was able to effortlessly kill the Grimm in Mission 1, it was obvious he was toying with them.
    • Likewise, Vergil gets his moments in Mission 1, taking down an army of Grimm in an abandoned village, and again in Mission 3, where he defeats Raven without breaking a sweat.
    • And in Mission 5, Dante took down Pyrrha easily during a sparring match, after realizing what her semblance was.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Raven chugs down all of Qrow's alcohol after waking up from her nightmare. Except here, she Can't Hold Her Liquor, and ends up ranting about how weak she really is before throwing up all over the floor.
  • For Want of a Nail: Because Dante's involvement with the White Fang's robbery at the docks led to Roman and Neo getting arrested, Cinder decided to enlist the help of Dr. Merlot instead.
  • Insane Troll Logic: While Dante tries to break up Weiss' and Blake's argument, Ruby brings up how Dante tried to assault Sun for knocking over his strawberry sundae. Blake uses that to declare that Dante is no better than Weiss. Obviously, Dante expressed confusion over that.
  • Mythology Gag: When Ruby accepts Penny's offer of being her friend, she replies by shouting "SSSensational!"
  • Not So Different: Cinder had no problem comparing Vergil with herself when she first meets him.
    Cinder: I am like you. Someone who was denied the right to the strength I- we deserve.
  • Oh, Crap!: Ruby non-verbally has this expression upon seeing Dante and Vergil encounter each other face to face at Beacon.
  • Retcon: A scene in Mission 2 was re-written so that not only does Vergil retaliate against Salem's attack, but slices her in half using Yamato, not only showcasing his strength, but learning that Salem has Nigh-Invulnerability as well, as that information was made public once Volume 6 was finished.
    • Mission 7: Rather than simply scaring off Neo, Dante beats her down along side Roman, leaving them unconscious long enough for the police to arrest them.
  • Serious Business: Dante was perfectly willing to assault Sun after the latter accidentally knocked over his strawberry sundae escaping the cops in Mission 6.
  • Shout-Out: All the mission titles are song names.
    • The title itself is a reference to the Charlie Daniels Band song "The Devil Went Down To Georgia".
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Vergil's appearance at Tukson's Book Trade prevented Emerald and Mercury from offing Tukson off.
  • Take That!: When Ruby was trying to figure out the hidden meaning behind the chest pieces, Dante dismisses it by saying that there's a reason why Disney greenlit Dog with a Blog.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Dante calls Ruby and Yang out for standing on the sidelines when Blake left the team, while also giving a downplayed "Reason You Suck" Speech to the former.
    Dante: You're supposed to be the team leader, right? Yang won't be here to protect you forever, so why don't you stop trying to hide in her shadow and start acting like one?
