The series has spawned a spinoff series entitled Wolves of the Beyond. It centers on the Dire Wolves known as the Wolves of the Watch, specifically a young wolf who grows up to become a gnaw wolf, a sort of story recorder, and eventually a watch wolf. The owls appear occasionally in the books.

* CanisMajor The Dire Wolves and the Vyrwolves who only get bigger.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Generally averts the "Predators Are Mean" aspect (owls, wolves, and bears are protagonists). Lampshaded when Digger (burrowing owl) and Mrs. P (snake) first meet, as burrowing owls are a predator of snakes.
** This becomes most apparent when the band is genuinely horrified that Twilight would suggest drying out a sea-star to use as a decoration. Outside of needing to eat, the owls generally leave prey animals alone.
* CleverCrows: Both ravens and crows are present in the books. Crows are usually antagonistic (except to Doc Finebeak[[spoiler:, who recruits them for the war in the last book]]), while ravens are more benevolent.
** TruthInTelevision, perhaps, if one believes ravens are more intelligent than crows.

* BigBad: Played with throughout the series. [[spoiler:Nyra]] is the only recurring villain throughout all of the arcs (except for in the [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Whole Arc Flashback]], of course), but they team up with other villains in each arc, who have about the same status in the story.
