There is no dog fighting in the way you may think of it, but there are many scenes where dogs and cats have war.

Bugs are mentioned plenty of times, i.e the phrase "bees in your brain", apprentices having to rid the elders of fleas, the Bee-, Fly-, and Beetle- prefixes, and probably more that don't come to mind rn

The entire series is based around cats fighting and, either by natural causes or being killed, often dying.

There are no dragons in Warrior Cats, and because of that there can be no dead dragons.

Yep. Lots of animals die. Cats kill each other and their prey (mice, rabbit, birds, etc.)

Honeyfern gets bitten by a snake and dies, along with Frecklewish (but this wasn't really an accident like Honeyfern's, rather another cat beckons a snake to kill her)

Turtle Tail and Bumble are both in abusive relationships with Tom in Thunder Rising. The Imposter emotionally and eventually physically abuses Squirrelflight in The Silent Thaw. Bramblestar gaslights and emotionally manipulates Squirrelflight throughout Squirrelflight’s Hope. Crowfeather and Nightcloud get into a physical altercation in Fading Echoes.

Violetkit/paw is neglected by her foster mother (Thunder and Shadow). Brokenkit is neglected and abused by his foster mother and bullied by his foster siblings. Stormkit, renamed Crookedkit, is rejected by his mother after breaking and disfiguring his jaw (Crookedstar's Promise). Thunder is rejected by his father, Clear Sky, as a child after losing his mother and siblings (The Sun Trail). Spottedleaf’s Heart focuses on CSA (child sexual abuse) between Thistleclaw, a grown adult, and Spottedpaw, a child younger than Thistleclaw’s son.

a cat named Rocky was addicted to catmint (catnip)

An often-overlooked scene (I forget which book it's in, I'm sorry), is where a cat asks for catmint (catnip) ((weed)), which in the book is a herb used for treatment of sickness, despite not being sick. It's laughed off and it's very short.

In Spottedleaf's Heart, a super edition (and book neglected by most of the fandom) it shows a slightly disturbing relationship between an adult and child, and although nothing actually happens, the adult does try his best to get into a relationship with the child although fails.

Cats occasionally complain about torn or ripped claws after battles, but nothing is explicitly stated about how the injured paws look.

Not specifically, but Oakheart, Longtail, and some other cats are crushed and I would say their heads probably were

Spoilers ahead! Several cats die in a forest fire during Rising Storm, though at least some died of smoke inhalation rather than burning. In Long Shadows, a character tries to trap several other characters in a fire, but lets them live. In The Last Hope, a scene is written confusingly enough that it seems like a burning tree kills a character, though the character in question actually dies of injuries previously sustained in battle. In Thunder Rising, a character is badly burned during a forest fire and eventually dies of his injuries.

In Tallstar's Revenge, Talltail's father, Sandgorse and Leafshine, who died before the story begins die to a tunnel collapsing. It's also hinted that this happened various times before which led to the closure of the tunnels.

Three cats come to mind-- Brightpaw is attacked by dogs and her face is mutilated. She loses an eye and part of her ear, but she lives. Longtail goes blind after a rabbit scratched his eyes, but he is alright and retires early. Brokenstar is blinded by another cat as punishment for the atrocities he committed throughout his time as leader.

Darktail’s cult (The Kin) tortures Needletail by what is essentially waterboarding after starving her for days. Clear Sky starves Jackdaw’s Cry while holding him hostage in The First Battle.

Cinderpelt, Cinderheart, and Jagged Peak all suffer broken legs (Fire and Ice, Outcast, and The Sun Trail, respectively). Crookedstar breaks his jaw as a young child (Crookedstar’s Promise). Briarlight and Frog suffer broken spines (Fading Echoes and Path of Stars, respectively). Clear Sky breaks his tail in three places in Path of Stars. Finleap’s tail breaks so badly in Darkest Night that it has to be amputated. Snowbush dies from an infected broken leg in Darkest Night. Snowbird breaks her paw in The Silent Thaw.

Appledusk cheats on Reedshine by having an affair with Mapleshade (Mapleshade's Vengeance). It is implied that Stormtail cheats on Moonflower with Dappletail (Bluestar's Prophecy). Brightheart suspects that Cloudtail cheats on her with Daisy, though this is later proven false (Twilight).

Police don't exist since these are cats, but the warrior code which is basically kitty cat laws are often enforced (TBC revolves around the code and codebreaking), even if they are unjust.

The word cancer" may not be used in-text, but a minor character in the prequel SEs, Tawnyspots, has "a lump in his belly" that slowly kills him, and the authors have stated out-of-universe that it was stomach cancer.

In Mapleshade’s Vengeance, Mapleshade kills three cats and attempts to kill a pregnant queen, driven by hallucinations of her dead children. In Crookedstar’s Promise, a delusional Goosefeather chases Stormkit and Oakkit across the stepping stones, resulting in Stormkit slipping and breaking his jaw. Tigerstar experiences hallucinations and self-loathing throughout Tigerclaw’s Fury, although these hallucinations are revealed to actually be Mapleshade. Ashfur is implied to be mentally ill throughout The Broken Code, in which he is the main antagonist.

Shadowsight ingests poison to kill himself. Not to end his life though, rather to hunt a ghost.

No self harm, but a cat does commit suicide by ingesting poison (not because he wants to end his life, but so he can find a ghost. he also comes back to life) Also, another cat forces his followers to carve his symbol into their paw pads if that counts

All disabled characters are either forced to be elders prematurely or medicine cats, and I'm pretty sure Moth Flight, an ADHD coded character, is mistreated by Windstar (Don't quote me on this, I haven't read that far into DotC and this is what people online have said.)

Confirmed LGBT cats (Tallstar, Ravenpaw, ect) and cats commonly thought of to be LGBT (Redtail, Blackstar, Rowanstar, ect) die, as the books take place through several years. No characters are killed for being LGBT, many die from old age or natural causes; but some die in battle.

No, but Tigerstar‘s attempted ethnic cleansing of half-clan and non-forestborn cats in the first series may be an allegory to the Holocaust.

It is not intentional, but sometimes there are mistakes where a cat is called by the wrong gender, which are just simply things that slipped by the editors. This is worse for some cats than others.

Eh, It's complicated. There's no racial or ethnic misrepresentation in Warriors, since these are cats. Although cats without Clans are often looked at with disdain by Clan cats, cats who think this are often shown to be in the wrong to do so. There's also no 100% canon LGBTQ+ cats in Warriors. There's no real world religions in Warriors, but sometimes Clan cats think that cats who don't believe in StarClan are weird. Many people in the Warriors fandom consider disabled people to be misrepresented in Warrior Cats.

Shadowsight has strokes throughout his entire life. The way they are handled in the book is not the best. For example, he was once pinned down so he wouldn’t hurt anyone whilst he was having one, which is not something you’d want to do to someone who has a stroke in real life.

This being a book series, you can't actually HEAR anything, but I do remember a scene where a character is nearly hit by a car, and the sound of the car veering to avoid them is described. IIRC, the scene is built up to though, and isn't super important, so it can be skipped fairly easily.

While lots of characters suffer injuries with lots of blood, one specific death is very worthy of the gore warning in The Darkest Hour. If you want specifics of the injury (stop reading if not!), he is clawed throat to tail along his belly and loses all nine lives at once since the injury is so severe. There might be worse, but this is the first that comes to mind.
