''Warrior Cats'': ''The Original Series'' is the first [[MythArc arc]] of the popular ''Literature/WarriorCats'' series by ErinHunter.

The series focuses on housecat [[TheChosenOne Rusty]], who, [[SmallTownBoredom tired of the easy life of a pet]], decides to join [=ThunderClan=], one of four warrior Clans who rule the forest neighboring his home. Rusty is dubbed [[MeaningfulRename Fireheart]] and sets out on a quest to unravel the secrets his Clanmates keep hidden in an effort to protect the forest from evil.

The series was inspired by ''{{Redwall}}'' and ''WatershipDown'' and it shows. AnyoneCanDie is in full effect, and every cutie is [[BreakTheCutie broken]]. The first arc is the [[FirstInstallmentWins most popular among the fandom]], and is the bloodiest in the series.

----
!!The First Arc provides examples of:
* AlmostDeadGuy: [[spoiler: Whitestorm, Bluestar and Yellowfang]] among others.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Most evidently with [[spoiler: Tigerclaw]].
* [[spoiler: AProtagonistShallLeadThem]]: [[spoiler: Fire''star'', leader of [=ThunderClan=].]]
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: [[spoiler: Fireheart's leadership ceremony.]]
* BigBad: Brokenstar at first. [[spoiler: Tigerclaw takes over after becoming [=ShadowClan's=] new leader.]] [[spoiler: Finally Scourge at the end.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: Brokenstar and Tigerclaw. [[spoiler: Later becomes a BigBadDuumvirate.]]
* CainAndAbel: WordOfGod confirms that [[spoiler: Fireheart and Scourge]] as well as [[spoiler: Graystripe and Darkstripe]] are brothers.
* ChekhovsGunman: Before going to his first gathering, Graystripe hopes that Clawface and Stonefur will attend. Both later become major players. Also, Barley [[spoiler: who was once a member of [=BloodClan=]]], and the small apprentice Lionheart talks to at Fireheart's first gathering, [[spoiler: who later becomes [=ShadowClan's=] medicine cat]].
* ChekhovsSkill: Fireheart's ISurrenderSuckers, which he uses throughout the series (most notably in his first battle ever), [[spoiler: is the key to defeating Scourge]].
* TheChosenOne: The prophecy says Fire alone can save them. The hero is named Fireheart. See the connection?
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Brokenstar. And also [[spoiler: Tigerstar]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness:
** Kits call their parents by their names rather than by Mother or Father
** Apprentices must travel to the Moonstone before becoming a warrior. This is mentioned several times in the series (though Fireheart and Graystripe are the only ones that actually do as far as the reader knows) and forgotten later on. After fans pointed this out to the authors, it gets {{Lampshaded}} in the later part of the second series by Leafpool, who comments that they seem to have left that tradition behind when they came to the lake.
** Even she-cats not expecting kits are referred to as queens in the first book.
** Earlier books have slightly different spellings than later books - Highstones is [=HighStones=] in the first book, "crowfood" is two words or at least has a hyphen, "Clanmate" is two words.
** At Gatherings, cats of all ages tend to mix: examples include senior warrior Lionheart talking with some apprentices, and Fireheart sitting with a group of elders and medicine cats. In later books, the characters tend to stick with the cats their own age.
** Mates aren't (for the most part) treated as major relationships in the first series, and it is mentioned that warrior fathers don't stay close to their kits (Crookedstar being a rare exception.) In the third series, Spiderleg is ''critisized'' because he doesn't want to play with his kits, and in the third and fourth series especially, everyone gossips about young couples and young she-cats talk about who they like and things like that.
* EvilIsHammy: Brokenstar [[spoiler: until he is stripped of his leadship of [=ShadowClan=].]] Later on [[spoiler: Tigerclaw takes a level in hamminess after becoming [=ShadowClan's=] leader.]]
* GenkiGirl: Cinderpaw, [[spoiler: until she gets hit by a car]].
* HeKnowsTooMuch: Tigerclaw's primary reason for trying to kill Ravenpaw and Fireheart.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Bluestar suffers a particularly nasty one after Tigerclaw's betrayal. It takes her two entire books to get over it completely... just in time for a {{Heroic Sacrifice}}.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Bluestar]]
* ItHasBeenAnHonor: [[spoiler:Whitestorm. "Iíve been proud to serve as your deputy."]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yellowfang
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: Tigerclaw attempts (and fails) this twice:
** [[spoiler:He tells Bluestar to meet him by the Thunderpath, setting his scent markers too close to the edge. He hopes Bluestar will run right onto the road, not realizing how close she is, and be hit by a car. Cinderpaw ends up caught in it instead.]]
** He tries to drown Fireheart, as mentioned below under TheUriahGambit. Even Fireheart wasn't sure whether it was an accident or not until he noticed the way Tigerclaw was looking at him later.
** Darkstripe gave Sorrelkit deathberries to eat; if Graystripe hadn't seen what happened, every cat would have just assumed she found the berries and didn't know what they were.
* MeaningfulRename:
** When an apprentice becomes a warrior, their name's "-paw" suffix is replaced with something more appropriate.
** Brightpaw gets special mention here. When she [[spoiler:is wounded and nearly dies]], Bluestar gives her the name [[spoiler:Lostface]] as part of her RageAgainstTheHeavens. Later, when [[spoiler:Fireheart becomes leader, he renames her Brightheart.]]
* MentorOccupationalHazard: [[spoiler: Bluestar, Lionheart and Yellowfang, mentors to Fireheart, Graystripe and Cinderpelt respectively, and all mentors to Fireheart in some way, all die.]]
* RedSkyTakeWarning: "The clouds are stained with blood! This day will bring an unneccessary death."
* {{Retronym}}: Originally just called "Warriors", however, fans now call it "The Original Series" to distinguish it from the rest of the arcs.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler: Graystripe and Silverstream]]
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: [[spoiler: Scourge turning against Tigerstar.]]
* TwistEnding: The very last line of ''Rising Storm''. See WhamLine below.
* UnexpectedSuccessor: [[spoiler: Tigerclaw]] to Nightstar.
* UnfortunateNames: Yellowfang, Deadfoot, Runningnose.
* UnfriendlyFire: One of Tigerclaw's tactics [[spoiler:before he is exiled]]:
** In the first book, he kills Redtail after a battle, claiming that Redtail was killed by Oakheart during the battle. Oakheart died in the same battle, so he's not exactly around to deny it.
** [[spoiler:Tigerclaw's attempt to kill Bluestar. He convinces a group of rogues to attack the camp, and during the battle, attacks Bluestar himself, planning to make it look like she had been killed by rogues.]]
* TheUriahGambit: Another one of Tigerclaw's tactics:
** Tigerclaw, suspecting that Ravenpaw [[HeKnowsTooMuch knows he killed Redtail]], sets him some dangerous hunting tasks, including at Snakerocks (named for the deadly adders that bask there in the summer... Ravenpaw actually manages to catch one!) and in [=ShadowClan=] territory.
** During battle, Fireheart's pinned down and fighting for his life. He calls to Tigerclaw for help, but Tigerclaw just watches him; it's to his advantage if Fireheart dies since he believes Ravenpaw told Fireheart what he knows.
** At one point, he orders Fireheart to cross a flooded stream, using only a spindly branch caught in the water. When Fireheart's halfway across and Longtail isn't watching, Tigerclaw tries to MakeItLookLikeAnAccident by knocking the branch loose of the rock it's caught against.
* WhamLine: [[spoiler:And with a cold shiver of dread, Fireheart realized that the new leader of [=ShadowClan=] was Tigerclaw.]]
