La Résistance: A rebellion was staged at one point to overthrow Wildstar and Thunderstripe, splitting the Clan in two. During the plot, it was pretty popular for IceClanners to put their status as a "rebel" or "loyalist" on their profiles.
The leader of IceClan, and character of the site's admin, Jaimie.
Badass: A competent senior warrior and combatant, who's seen his fair share of battles.
Badass in Distress: He's held hostage in FireClan with Mossfeather and Birdshadow in one plot, eventually having to be rescued by Birdshadow after he and Mossfeather have long escaped. In another, he nearly gets carried away by an eagle and Koisplash intervenes to save him and help him fight it off.
Butt Monkey: TreeClan in one of the plots. First the entire forest gets burned down and destroys their camp, then they have to shelter in IceClan and eventually get kicked out, and thenFireClan attacks, kidnapping a kit while they're at it. Sheesh.
The leader of TreeClan, who is the only one who isn't Clan-born in some way and was instead raised in the alleys at the Twolegplace.
All of the Other Reindeer: He was bullied by his siblings and the other higher-ups in the alleys at the Twolegplace when he was young, just for being the runt of his litter.
Kick the Dog: He's done some pretty unnecessarily cruel things, such as exiling Oakspirit for having had an affair with his half-brother and clawing Larksong across the eye, blinding her in it, during an argument. The former, however, became a forgotten plot that was presumably retconned out of existence, and you could say he made up for the latter by losing a life while saving Larksong with Koisplash during a TreeClan fire.
Mentor Ship: He fell in love with his first apprentice, Owlsong, after she became a warrior. Then she died.
Parental Abandonment: His father died before he was born, and his mother was killed when he was a kit.
The previous leader of DeathClan, who changed many things about it (such as getting rid of the training system and leadership of generals). However, after that, he decided to leave the cats to lead themselves, causing Fallacy to take up his position.
But Now I Must Go: Announces his resignation and departs from DeathClan entirely just days after he's made leader.
Berserk Button: Has next to no tolerance for smart-mouthed youngsters or anything that could harm DeathClan's general well-being.
Japanese Honorifics: She's from Japan, hence she uses these for everyone ("-sama" to address leaders, "-san" to other high-ranked figures, "-chan" and "-kun" for those who are her equals or are younger than her, etc.).
The Medic: Because she knows the most about herbs among the rogues, she could be considered the DeathClan equivalent to a Clan medicine cat, and even holds a position as a healer for some time. However, this was dropped after a rule change in DeathClan that only Clan medicine cats can know herbs.
One of DeathClan's members; less experienced than the seniors but more experienced than the newer ones.
Anti-Villain: He's harsh and merciless, but he doesn't murder or generally act as evil as expected.
Continuity Snarl: When it comes to the matter of the seven Acidfangs. Which one is which? Is this Acidfang in the Dark Pool or is he alive? Was this Acidfang both in the Dark Pool and in the rogues area, or is it another one?
Karma Houdini: For all his manipulations, he's hardly—if ever—gotten a comeuppance.
Rule of Seven: There are seven cats carrying his overall identity.
A ruthless and skilled former DeathClan elite, who was infamous among rogues for her high ambitions and general cruelty. She once had white fur, but it was permanently dyed a deep red from blood stains.
Early Installment Weirdness: In the early days of VWW, characters died and went to CloudClan rather freely, and in Hollystar's case, she was made entirely to be a CloudClan spirit. However, a rule eventually was made that no character could die and join CloudClan without Jaimie's express permission (which was rarely given), hence why the CloudClan board is so inactive.
Ghost Town: Because of the aforementioned rule. Deconstructed in one plot: it's because of their declining population that they make the Hunger Games to kill off cats and have more spirits as a result.
Spirit Advisors: All of them are still able to dispense advice long after they're dead.
What the Hell, Hero?: Generally everyone in the Clans turned against them in disgust for creating the Hunger Games to force cats to fight to the death and raise CloudClan's population in the end.
A famous hero of the Clans, who died in battle and now resides in CloudClan with his mate, Peachwing.
Deader Than Dead: As a CloudClan spirit, she dies when trying to stop Hydra from escaping the Dark Pool through a portal. However, this seems to have been retconned now, since she's seen in CloudClan again.
First Girl Wins: The first she-cat that Bloodflame had a major interaction with when they were kits, and ultimately his true love interest.
Nice Girl: Usually calm and sweet-tempered, though it's not wise to anger her.
Real Life Writes the Plot: The reason she was killed off while attempting to stop Hydra from escaping the Dark Pool was because her creator wanted to stop RPing her. However, because she eventually handed Peachwing's account over to someone else (the creator of Waspwing and Badger), this was retconned out so that Peachwing could remain in CloudClan.
The Quiet One: Doesn't talk a whole lot when she doesn't need to, and stays out of the way most of the time.
Good Is Not Soft: While a benevolent spirit, when she finds out from Acidfang that the only way to destroy The Father is to kill the cats he exists in the minds of, she decides that it must be done. This is also an aversion of Thou Shalt Not Kill.
A FireClan warrior when she was alive, who was killed by a DeathClan cat named Scarlet during a site-wide plot.
Curb-Stomp Battle: When Scarlet attacks her, she's barely able to fight back, and ends up getting murdered for her trouble.
Meaningful Name: She's described as having a small crescent-shaped mark over one eye.
Dark Pool/Hidden Forest
Tropes that apply to the Dark Pool/Hidden Forest as a whole:
An unknown entity that is worshiped as a god, particularly by three cats named Drift, Slyde, and Zoom. He apparently only exists in the minds of his followers, and so is locked up in a cell in the Dark Pool.
