  • The animated style of the show is the same as Rooster Teeth's Camp Camp and Nomad of Nowhere. This was because everyone at Rooster Teeth Productions thought that the show would fit the tone and aesthetic and make it feel more like actual fairy tales. They wanted something that felt different from the main series, but still feel like something that could live alongside it.[4]
  • "The Shallow Sea" is the only episode that adapts two fairy tales instead of one. The first one being "The Shallow Sea" and the second one being "The Judgement of Faunus". According to Eddy Rivas, this was done because the show was greenlit for a certain number of episodes and it felt natural to put both of the Faunus origin tales together.[5]
  • "The Warrior in the Woods" is the only episode that isn't narrated by Professor Ozpin, instead it is narrated by Taiyang Xiao Long.
  • The only stories that never got animated adapted are "The Man Who Stared at the Sun", "The Infinite Man", "The Two Brothers", "The Story of the Seasons", and "The Gift of the Moon".
    • That said, "The Two Brothers" and "The Story of the Seasons" did receive adaptations in other media.
