      • Due to initially appearing to be a Femme Fatale and their similar appearances, Cinder is commonly compared to Lust by fans.

      • Qrow, voiced by Vic Mignogna, is derisively called "little brother" by Raven, a stealthy nod to the Elric brothers and how Edward doesn't like being called short or little.
