* AWayOutOfACaveIn: While trapped in a flooding cave with his littermates and some young [=WindClan=] cats, Jaypaw has a vision that shows him that Rock's notched stick had originated from the cave. Since he'd found the stick by the lake, he realizes that the subterranean river must lead out of the cave to the lake, and they use it to successfully escape.

* SneakyDeparture: ''Dark River'' is basically "Sneaky Departures, the Book". First, Lionpaw and Heatherpaw are constantly sneaking away at night to meet each other. Then, Hollypaw sneaks away from [=ThunderClan=] camp and goes to [=RiverClan=] to find out what the huge problem impacting them is. Then, a battle starts when three [=WindClan=] kits sneak away from their Clan to explore the tunnels they heard about and [=WindClan=] thinks they were kidnapped. In order to stop the battle, two separate groups composed on Lionpaw, Hollypaw, and Jaypaw, and Breezepaw and Heatherpaw sneak away to find the kits.

** The tree-bridge to the Gathering island is described with the top of the tree and its branches on the island. This is backward from how the tree fell in ''Starlight'' from the island to the mainland.

Added DiffLines:

* SecretRelationship: Lionpaw/Heatherpaw, due to being from different Clans.
* SecretUndergroundPassage: The tunnel system between [=ThunderClan=] and [=WindClan=], where Lionpaw and Heatherpaw secretly meet and where the [=WindClan=] kits later get lost.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Sabotutor}}: Lionpaw claims that Ashfur (who has a grudge against Lionpaw's parents, as he was part of a LoveTriangle involving them) has been teaching him to do everything the wrong way. Brambleclaw (Lionpaw's father), is shocked at the accusation because he knows it could possibly be true, but he also scolds Lionpaw for blaming others.


* SeriesContinuityError: It claims that "The tip of [Berrypaw's] thick cream tail stirred the surface of the lake." Berrypaw no longer has a "thick cream tail" since he lost all but a stump in ''Sunset''.

to:

* SeriesContinuityError: ProphetEyes: Rock is described physically as having bulging, "sightless eyes" in his physical description when Fallen Leaves meets him, so we can assume the only way a cat could tell by sight that another is blind is because the blind cat has eyes that look like this.

Added DiffLines:

* OddNameOut: Daisy and Millie decide to keep their original names, rather than taking Clan names like all of their other Clanmates. The [=ThunderClanners=] worry that this will make it seem like they don't belong, and that it will make [=ThunderClan=] look weaker, since having their cats reject Clan tradition makes it seem like their warriors are less loyal.

Added DiffLines:

* NoAntagonist: ''The Sight'' and ''Dark River'' are mainly about the conflict between the Clans and don't have a driving enemy behind them, unlike the other books.
