* ContinuityLockout: Generally averted, due to the TimeShift. Nothing going on in the ''Honor Harrington'' books that were published before this series have any real bearing on the plot, since they take place four centuries later, apart from some of the short stories about this era, one of which was expanded into the first book.

* ZergRush: How the tree cats deal with hexapumas in situations where running away is impractical. DeathOfAThousandCuts sums it up pretty well.

* ParanoiaFuel: Anders suspects that Treecats are telepathic, and wonders if they might be able to read human thoughts. Considering the thoughts that a teenage boy tends to have, he finds himself terribly concerned at how protective Lionheart might be when Anders is around Stephanie.

* ABloodyMess: Stephanie is mortified when she mistakenly falls for this trope in her forensics class. Karl points out that everybody in the class, himself included, were most likely fooled as well, she just happened to be the one the professor called on to give an answer. The point of the lesson, as it turns out, was not jumping to conclusions. It's mentioned that all of the ''[[OrgyOfEvidence other]]'' evidence suggested it ''would'' be blood.

* AlienNonInterferenceClause: The humans are not sure how intelligent the Treecats are, and opinions vary on how much contact the humans should have with them. As it happens, the treecats' ranges are all on Crown Lands (not by design; the Treecats avoid the humans when they can, and the Crown Lands are mostly unsettled), one Xeno-Anthropologist arging against human "contamination" of Treecat culture ends up posing a scenario where a Treecat, living in a human's heated home, would fail to grow his winter fur, and asks if the humans would then end up making him a sweater. Treecat Sweaters become a go-to RunningGag for the heroes when they want to poke fun at this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* BrickJoke: Early in ''Treecat Wars'', a Xeno-Anthropoloigst (arguing against human contamination of Treecat culture) poses a potential scenario where Treecats [[ItMakesSenseInContext would become dependent on humans for sweaters.]] By the end of the book, they end up having to do exactly that for a treecat whose fur they had to trim to treat injuries he suffered, and mention is made of sharing the pattern used so that other humans can create similar sweaters for nearby Treecat clans as needed.

* ApeShallNotKillApe: Treecats, being telepathically and empathically linked, are very good at settling differences before it reaches the point of open hostility, and thus have a taboo against killing each other. The plot of ''Treecat Wars'' centers around neighboring clans being driven to the point of breaking this trope due to famine caused by the events of ''Fire Season''.


Added DiffLines:

* GuileHero: Anders knows how dangerous [[spoiler: an enraged Treecat]] is in a fight, but doesn't want to kill it, so instead he puts his [[ArtificialGravity Counter-grav]] device on it and [[GravityScrew cranks it into reverse]] to pin it down.


Added DiffLines:

* MortonsFork: Ranger Shelton reverses the trope at the end of ''Treecat Wars'': [[spoiler: Either the Treecats aren't sentient, in which case they're obliged to help a starving clan like they would any other distressed animals under their responsibility, or they are sapient beings, in which case the rangers are obligated to help like they would any of the humans on the planet.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheReveal: In ''Treecat Wars'', the fact that [[spoiler: Swimmer's Scourage has gone mad enough to kill his own kin.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SteppingOutForAQuickCupOfCoffee: At the end of ''Treecat Wars'', Ranger Shelton decides that it would simplify things if, rather than officially helping the Landless Clan, they instead distract the xeno-anthropologists taking them on a tour elsewhere, while Stephanie and her friends all happen to have the day off to do as they please.


Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeFriendship: Jessica and Anders realize that the Landless Clan is suffering a famine and buy a freezer full of poultry, earning them the clan's trust.

* ContinuityNod: After Stephanie organizes [[spoiler: the evacuation of Landless Clan to a new range]] at the end of ''Treecat Wars'', one of her fellow Probationary Rangers jokes that she's wasted as a forest ranger. [[Literature/HonorHarrington She should be commanding battle fleets instead.]]
