Added DiffLines:

* JerksAreWorseThanVillains: In a series of blood-thirsty and murderous characters, one of the most disliked characters is a dog that's actually TheLoad of his pack: the slimeball Pug named "Whine". Whine blackmailed Lucky, inadvertently got a packmate killed, and was all too keen to let Alpha kill the Fierce Dog puppies, all because he didn't like being the Omega of his pack.


* OvershadowedByControversy: Unfortunately the entire series got hit with this in 2020, where most discussions focus more on how one of the authors of the books Gillian Phillip is extremely transphobic, and supports J.K. Rowling more than the books themselves. (Though Gillian Phillip did get fired from the team eventually and no longer works on any of the Erin Hunter books.

* EvilIsCool: The main villains tend to be Doberman Pinscher's. As it turns out, people really like Doberman's. It doesn't help that they're always described so cool looking, with all the Fierce Dogs being lean and muscular and Blade having a silky, frightening voice.

Unlike ''Warriors'' and muscular ''Seekers'', ''Survivors'' hasn't even had a ComicBookAdaptation. This may be in part because of how nondescript the designs are. Even fan-artists aren't sure how to draw Lucky and Blade having a silky, frightening voice.Sweet's offsprings, which are Sheltie/retriever/Greyhound mixes.


* ArchiveBinge: It's nowhere near ''Warriors'' level but it's starting to get there. Not even ten years old and it has nine books and counting, not including the e-book novellas which were later put into one paperback.

* NightmareFuel:
** Terror from ''The Broken Path''. He has patches of burnt skin and yellow eyes, and he keeps ranting manically about how everyone should bow before the Fear Dog, the "king" of spirit dogs. He also mercilessly beats his dogs for showing cowardice, which makes Lucky be surprised that an alpha would ever beat their own dogs. He gets beaten when he gets his [[spoiler:lower jaw torn off and killed by Storm]], who fights him to help her friends.
** One of Lucky's nightmares is when he's a pup and listening to his mother's story, who suddenly starts ranting about doom, blood, and destruction. He looks up... and it's Blade leering down at him.


* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Did Lick kill [[spoiler:Terror]] herself? No one saw it happen but [[AmbiguousSituation Lucky thinks his death was suspicious]]. If she ''did'' kill him, was it to [[MercyKill put him out of his misery]], to make sure he wouldn't attack her friends again, or because she has a [[BloodKnight natural instinct to kill]]?

* InternetBackdraft: This series has been controversial among Creator/ErinHunter fans, to say the least, because it isn't written by any of the previous Erins.

Added DiffLines:

* PopularWithFurries: Though not as popular as ''Warriors'', fandom-wise at least, it has its niche amongst dog and wolf furries.


* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: One of the main criticism the series has is because it's not written by of the previously established Creator/{{Erin|Hunter}}'s.
