We must consider that A. The arrow to the chest diddn't instantly kill Pyrrha, in fact she survives a bit with it in and B. When she disapears after Cinder touches her mind you her headress is left behind without any reason behind it. So what I think happens is after Pyrrha got shot and Cinder touched her, her semblance, and therefore Pyrrha herself, were absorbed into Cinder as shown by the orange particles she dissolved into. Now the headress remaining also can hint at this. It remains to hint at the fact that Pyrrha is still "alive" in a sence.

Rules FAQ. Wiki Discussions. This subreddit is night mode compatible. I know that this topic has probably been discussed to death heh To start with, let's see how the majority of media, be it books, films, or even animes portrays death. Often times, it's a glorification of it, where the heroes sacrificed their lives to help those they care for, complete with the "obligatory" final message scene. This, right here, is why I think that the treatment of death in most media has gotten stale. It's because the writers glorify it.
Yup, reading this in reveals how relevant this screed was. RT never had the strength to fully commit to the themes and messages Pyrrha's tragic death presented to the characters, and their paltry attempts to "happily" conclude her story felt more like a full-blown retreat and thematic betrayal of her sad story in Volume 3. I really do hope they plan to bring Pyrrha back, because at this moment in time JNPR as a cast of characters are very uninspiring and horribly underutilized. I think it would've been better. It would have actually made the writers have to address Pyrrha's death and Jaune's role in it a lot quicker and more comprehensively. Instead of what we got, which was 3 years of low-effort, drawn out and ultimately unimpressive writing "concluding" the story. Let's hope it's not the case. Oh man, that Silver Eyes thing is revel, and it's more stupid than what we thought.
