Added DiffLines:

* HealthyInHeaven: This occurs to Clan cats who go to [=StarClan=]. In [=StarClan=], cats' illnesses disappear and they're presented as the age they were happiest in life (for instance, Yellowfang appears as the elder she was in [=ThunderClan=], while Bluestar appears in her prime.)


* HeroicAlbino: Pink Eyes is the series' first ever albino cat. He's also a solid good CoolOldGuy.

Added DiffLines:

* LookingBusy: Cats commonly do this when they're up to something. For example, at one point the POV character wants to eavesdrop on a conversation and sits nearby at the fresh-kill pile, pretending that they're trying to decide what they want to eat.

Added DiffLines:

* MultiAnimatorProject: [[MultiAnimatorProject/WarriorCats Has its own page.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IntimateHairBrushing: Cat equivalent. Cats regularly groom with their friends and loved ones. This is called "sharing tongues".

Added DiffLines:

* HairballHumor: In "Into the Wild", Sandpaw is rude to Firepaw. Lionheart excuses her behaviour by saying, "She must have a hairball somewhere.".

Added DiffLines:

* HealTheCutie: After Cinderpaw is hit by a car, leaving her leg permanently crippled, she slips into a depression, feeling worthless over the fact that she can never become a warrior - she even comments after the camp is attacked that she wouldn't have minded if she'd been killed in the battle. Her spirit recovers after Yellowfang has her help out in the [[TheMedic medicine cat]] den and eventually makes Cinderpaw her official apprentice.


Added DiffLines:

* LazyNeuteredPet: Almost all neutered toms in the series become lazy. Kittypets are already known for being [[FatCat plumper]] than their forest-dwelling brethren, but neutered ones are especially so.

Added DiffLines:

* IfItTastesBadItMustBeGoodForYou: All healing herbs taste disgusting, whether it's to cure a sickness or to stave off hunger for the start of a long journey.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLegendOfX: ''Legends of the Clans'', a trio of novellas about three significant characters that take place before the main series: Spottedleaf, Pinestar, and Thunderstar.


Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForThief: In ''A Dangerous Path'', [=ThunderClan=] finds evidence of prey being killed on their territory. Bluestar assumes it's being stolen by [=WindClan=] (to the point of accusing them publicly at a Gathering), due to her paranoia/dementia and the fact that one particular example of the prey was the remains a rabbit found on that end of the territory. Fireheart knows that it's likely a dog catching the prey due to other evidence, and arranges for Bluestar to meet with [=WindClan=]'s leader to discuss it before she can lead an attack on them.


Added DiffLines:

* MurderByInaction:
** Tigerclaw attempts to murder Fireheart in this way at least two times: in ''Fire and Ice'', Tigerclaw lets Fireheart nearly be killed by Leopardfur; in ''Forest of Secrets'', Fireheart falls in a river and nearly drowns while Tigerclaw watches, but Longtail saves him.
** In ''Mapleshade's Vengeance'', Mapleshade believes the deaths of her kits to be this: Frecklewish was watching to make sure Mapleshade left the territory when exiled, saw them swept into the river, and left. Frecklewish said she'd seen [=RiverClan=] warriors on the other side, and assumed that they'd be saved and she never wanted them to die; this is also what she told her own Clan. It's not clear if Frecklewish was lying or not, as we're limited to Mapleshade's POV and she was only aware of [=RiverClan=] once they pulled her out of the water.


* IncestSubtext: Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost - half-brothers - could be interpreted this way. Brambleclaw chose to trust Hawkfrost '''over''' Squirrelflight, his LoveInterest, and trusted Hawkfrost completely up until he tried to make him kill his leader. Even though it was hinted at that Hawkfrost was evil.

Added DiffLines:

* MutuallyUnequalRelationship: Bluestar believed Tigerclaw to be her faithful deputy despite Fireheart's warnings that he was evil. Tigerclaw just saw her as a weak leader who needed to be disposed of to get himself the leadership.


* JokerImmunity: Tigerstar takes this to the logical extreme, since he keeps appearing even though he died in the first series. However, his limited interaction with the living world makes him much less of a threat then when he was alive, and his involvement in the earlier books of [=tPoT=] was somewhat lacking. Eventually - after four series - they do manage to finally make him DeaderThanDead.

** Socks and Ruby did this to Scourge (once named Tiny), believing he was too weak to fend for himself. Karma catches up with them when their Twoleg owners abandon them and Scourge refuses to take them into [=BloodClan=].

** The New Prophecy is great with this. Stormfur, Ashfur, and Brambleclaw all liked Squirrelflight. Stormfur knew that he didn't have a future with her, and eventually ended up with a Tribe cat named Brook. For a while it seemed as if Brambleclaw and Squirrelflight would become an OfficialCouple, but fell out because of Brambleclaw wanting to be friends with his half-brother ([[ItMakesSenseInContext it makes a bit more sense in context]]), whom some fans say he had HoYay with, and Squirrelflight went to Ashfur. However, she never truly loved him, and later left him for Brambleclaw once more. This drove Ashfur insane, to the point of betraying his Clan, abetting in almost murdering Firestar, and trying to kill Squirrelflight along with her 'kits'. This forced her to admit that they weren't hers, and were in fact the children of Leafpool and Crowfeather. Crowfeather had previously been in love with Feathertail (who died), had a brief affair with Leafpool (which produced Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf), and then took Nightcloud as a mate in [=WindClan=] solely to prove his loyalty and have a kit with her (Breezepelt).

The revelation that Squirrelflight's kits weren't hers (and therefore not his) caused Brambleclaw to break up with her. He later had some feelings for Jessy, a kittypet that stayed with the Clan for a while, before getting back together with Squirrelflight and actually having kits together (Alderheart and Sparkpelt).



* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Ashfur. After being dumped by Squirrelflight, he attempts to kill her father, and later her (adopted) children, to make her feel the same pain he did. When another cat questions how he made it to [=StarClan=] after that, Yellowfang's response is "his only fault was to love too much".

** In ''A Dangerous Path'', Bluestar hurls herself at a dog to knock it over the edge of the gorge, where it'll drown. She lands safely on the edge, but the dog grabs her leg and pulls her in afterward, where she drowns as well.

Added DiffLines:

* KillOnSight: Occasionally a leader will order that if a particular cat is found in their Clan's territory, they should be killed on sight: this includes when Tigerclaw is exiled from [=ThunderClan=] for murder, and when Graystripe is exiled from [=RiverClan=] for betraying them during battle to save Fireheart's life.

Added DiffLines:

* MeanwhileInTheFuture: ''[=SkyClan=]'s Destiny'' works this way, with the current-day story of [=SkyClan=] interspersed with chapters from Stick's point of view, back before he left the city, some time earlier than the main events of the book.

Added DiffLines:

* MentorArchetype: Although she isn't his mentor in the sense the series usually uses the word (training the character to be a warrior or medicine cat), Yellowfang serves this role to Fireheart; she's the elderly, dear friend he always goes to for advice. She later becomes Cinderpelt's actual mentor (training her to be a medicine cat) and does the same for her, and they both remember her wisdom after her death.
