* BreatherEpisode: The second half of the arc, which is just about the settlement on the lake, and with the exception of the badger attack and final confrontation of Hawkfrost, this part is generally far lighter than ''Midnight'', ''Moonrise'', or ''Dawn''
* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Hawkfrost is Tigerstar's son]], [[spoiler: Mothwing is an atheist]], [[spoiler: Tigerstar comes back]], and [[spoiler: the forest is destroyed]].
* SeasonalRot: The second half of the series, which is arguably considered nowhere near as well written as the first half. WordOfGod (Vicky) has even stated ''Sunset'' was one of the worst quality ones.
