Best Warrior Cat Clans

The Top Ten

1 Riverclan

RIVER CLAN IS THE BEST! RIVERCLAN FISH! RIVERCLAN SWIM! RIVERCLAN USE WATER TO WIN! Riverclan is definitely HANDS DOWN! THE BEST CLAN! Riverclan is peaceful and graceful. Riverclan is also THE STRONGEST OF ALL THE CLANS. IT SAYS IN THE GUIDE BOOKS! NOW! Riverclan contains the beauty and strength of the water. When Riverclan unites, we are unstoppable, just like the river. Riverclan flows through it's dangers, as the river does. Riverclan can also adapt quickly, imitating the river. WE ARE GRACE. WE ARE POWER. WE ARE RIVERCLAN!

Nothing can stand against the force of water, just as nothing can defeat RiverClan warriors when we rise up together. But when trouble comes, RiverClan knows how to weave through the dangers, adapting to the changed world, just as the river flows around rocks and over waterfalls. We are grace. We are power. We are RiverClan.
(P.S. RiverClan is my Clan it is the best and was my favorite from the start.)

I, as a Aquarius, love water. So, with EVERY reason in my LIFE love Riverclan!,
Plus, the leader of Riverclan, in dawn of the clans, River Ripple is a great leader!

As a pisces, a WATER sign, it would be criminal of me NOT to vote for Riverclan.

2 Thunderclan

Thunderclan is the best. PERIOD. Its not up for debate because Thunderclan crushes the competition.

Dude firestar is there so yeah this is the best clan

ThunderClan is the canonical clan, that the story told from at the beginning and till current times. Actually, this clan got the most clever and brave leaders, very nice medicine cats and the original story.

Go ThunderClan all the way woo hoo. I support TunderClan mainly because Firestar lead this clan

3 Windclan

I think they're an underrated clan

Cool cats that's all

WindClan, it's my favorite clan, but my spirit Clan is RiverClan...

I really like windclan your in the wind all the time and get to eat rabbits

4 Shadowclan

Don't judge the clan of its name, I know it looks evil but seriously. SHADOWCLAN NEEDS MORE LOVE! - BloodFang


Shadowclan needs more love they always get the short end of the stick. They keep on getting bad leadership but at least we always get cats like Blackstar. Always will be favorite clan because of how cool the concept of a clan of cats that blend into shadows is.


5 Starclan

Pretty much all of my favorite cats are here!

Best clan of them all

In Starclan, you don't die. If you're OC is in Starclan, you help ANY OTHER CLAN. And also, those cats are from diffrent Clans. DUH!

I don't like star clan... Why do star clan give confusing prophecies when they could have directly told the cats what is going to happen. The books make it seem like star clan is a thunder clan only thing, and why do they give all the good prophecies to thunder clan. Also what's the difference between the darkforest and star clan, they a basically the same thing acept for the fact that one is for "good" cats and the other is for "bad" cats. Also I have heard that star clan VOTES on who gets to go to star clan, so it doesn't really matter when it comes to star clan being good. - the amazing Cockatoo

6 Skyclan

I love SkyClan I find the books about them interesting. When I first read my first book about them (FirestarsQuest) I was so satisfied learning more about the clans history.

SkyClan is the most noble of the clans and I love Violetshine!

SkyClan are definitely best! They were a bunch of kittypets and rogues brought together. They started working together pretty quickly. After Darktail's attack, half the clan was missing, even one of the medicine cats! They lost a lot but continued to find the rest of the clans.

SkyClan has always been my favourite Clan. I hate ThunderClan because the entire series revolves around them. Also, they don't make sense. They're described as 'the most loyal, brave, strong, and fierce Clan' even though the reason Firestar originally joined them was because they were too weak. Also, the other Clans look down on them because they're apparently weak and soft because they always let cats from the other Clans in, and they're absolutely right. It doesn't make sense how they're portrayed as the Gryffindors of Warrior Cats when they're described as weak by the other Clans. I don't HATE ShadowClan. I just don't like how everyone thinks they're evil (even though the book portrays them to be the bad guys). I don't hate them. I just don't like them. Also, I hate Blackstar. I actually do like RiverClan, but again, I don't like how they're portrayed. It's stupid how everyone thinks they're the soft Clan (even though it's really ThunderClan, sorry). WindClan's okay. I don't mind ...more

7 Bloodclan

Scourge is my kin, my love, my father, my idol, my last blood until Nightmare( really that's his name) my half brother got another shot to live with me. Don't be mean to my father, or the clan. BEWARE FOR I HAVE THE SAME CLAWS AS HIM!

Scourge should have been in more books, Long Live BloodClan!


AS the leader of Blood clan you may address me as scourge or tiny as they used to call me. Bloodclan will take its glory into HISTORY!
Join me in My clan or die
From Scourge

8 Tribe of Rushing Water

Tribe of rushing water is the worst because in my opinion is because the science behind their hunting skills

2.not every mouse you find will be snatched up by a bird of prey
3.(peregrine) falcons are the fastest animals on earth, which means that the falcons would be to fast for the cats to catch them. (fly up to 230mph)
4.Birds/aves are my favourite group of animals, and it really pierces like a thorn when a cat bites the head of of a hawk chick

If you're worried about logic, remember the fact that this is a book about talking cats that worship the stars and get better from eating old english remedy herbs. And ghosts can kill living cats and other ghosts. And live together in groups of around 50. - RoseWeasley

Hello?! This is considered a Clan because ThunderClan was loyal to them! Plus, couples like Brook x Stormfur were cute.

The tribe of rushing water sounds like they have a peaceful home a beautiful one as well. With cats that have beautiful names. The tribe of rushing water just gives you that mystical feeling that you have been touched by aicient Magic, just learn poetry write a poem about the tribe of rushing water and you have fallen in love with the most sacred beings

I agree cats can't jump crazy high to eat falcons and owls! Plus I hate them you can't just move into a lion's territory then make someone kill it! Come on, that's not your natural habitat!

9 The Ancients

The ancients may not be a clan and only come later in the book but it it still a good "clan" and they may became the Tribe of Rushing Water but still.

The ancients are amazing also. It's just rock that gets on. My nerves

I really like the Ancients. Go Half Moon!

10 TigerClan

Cool clan name

Tiger clan they have amazing coat patterns

oh hello

The Contenders

11 LionClan

To be honest, the 6th book in the prophecy begins has to be the best. the biggest fight happened, causing the evil Tigerstar to lose all his 9 lives. Nobody likes Tigerstar still, right?

This is one of the best because in the 6th book, Windclan and Thunderclan unite to Lionclan and they win the battle

12 Fireclan

Hello browser of this list your browsing here had ended the rest of this list is crap.

Fire clan, sounds like I never heard of it clan

I have never heard of that.

I have no clue what this is...

13 Fatclan

And every single cat in here is obese.

Lol this needs to be top 1

Stupid.not real. BUT FUNNY! - Dragonheart


14 Tribe of Endless Hunting

Now thus...out of all of these real - BloodFang

Because they work together as a team I would love 2 B a cave guard

Same generic star clan

Ah,let's go back to the time of the tribe of endless hunting. The ancestors of the ones who started it all...

15 LeopardClan

LeopardClan is a sneaky clan, and they compete against TigerClan and LionClan. I'm pretty sure they look innocent, but under the spots they can hold their own in a fight.

16 Place Of No Stars

Satan versus tigerstar

Hitler? - Nightkillo

Dark forest?

tigerstar - Willowfur

20 MoonClan


"MoonClan is an awesome Clan! " Shadowsky and I simultaneously meowed. "It's our home. Let's go on a tour!
"So, here's Moonpool. Over that way-" we pointed to the south-east - "is Moonstone."
"Here's our camp. Cindertail's den is right here, while the next den over is the Elder den. It's been empty since Cloudstorm died. The next den over is the Apprentice den. Then, there's the Warrior den. Beside that is the Highrock."
"Then, there's my den," I purred. "Smells like orchids, right? That's because there's a small patch of them growing in the corner. They're all blue like our eyes." Shadowsky and I showed off our cyan eyes as we moved over to the next den.
"That's my den," Shadowsky growled, "and you're not allowed in."
"That's because it's where he keeps his spare dog fangs, in case any fall out or break."
"You know Scourge? I got the idea from him."
"Lastly, if you follow me in here-"
"And not me," Shadowsky hissed.
"There is the nursery. He won't come in ...more - Willowfur

I've never herd of the moonclan.

A meadow with streams and rivers everywhere and willows hanging over them. There are lilies on them, and there is a central pond where they fish and hunt for voles.

25 LavaClan

I'm thinking cats who live in a volcano with fur that looks like lava and the names are based on what the female sees in her next dream so it's like Flower Of Many Flames and they call the lava LavaClan's Burn

If they have a volcano in their territory there would be a great lack of prey, the tree would be dead and scorched since the clan is called lava clan, which means they have experienced eruptions, which would mean that the cats would die and the tree

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

How do cats now what lava is

26 Spirtclan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

I just made it up but in my imagination it is a clan with a forest territory with at least a camp near a few streams.

Leader: crystalstar
Deputy: kindheart
med: Ambersky

Crystalstar? Kindheart? What in StarClan! I bet if you become leader you’ll be like Leafstar yourself! Ugh, start reading more warrior cat series l:( Darkness of Rising Echoes

, my OC cat is named Crystalgaze. CRYSTALGAZE COME OVER I FOUND A CLAN!

27 SongClan

Nice name though

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

28 JayClan

All hail lord jayfeather! - Willowfur

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Love jayfeather :P JayBae

29 MossClan

I'm guessing the cats in mossclan have camouflaged pelts to keep safe from predators. And they'd live in a thick jungle at the bottom where all the moss grows on the rocks.

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Emberwind1 WE KNOW THIS CLAN DOES NOT EXIST! lol =3 - WarriorWolf13

30 CloudClan

I am using this in my (probably) short story. This is like SkyClan, they mainly hunt birds, and they spend their time hunting and napping in the dense trees. They are peaceful and mysterious, they evolved from JaguarClan. Their camp is in a very big tree, their dens are in hollows here and there, but the nursery is the only one on the ground, it is a roomy but secluded hollow in the roots of their camp in an old oak tree. They don't exactly have camp walls, but most of the oak camp is covered in ivy and lichen which hides their dens. The fresh-kill pile is in a bowl-shaped fork of two branches high up.

Leader: Dawn star
Deputy: Silver tone
M.C: Star shine
Warriors: Dark Sky, Blue Frost, Moon blaze, Glimmer pelt, Shadow tail, Cloud tuft, Dew pounce, Shimmer wing, Light spring, Bright dapple, Horizon claw, Sparkle fur, Violet shade, Shade flower, Gleam strike, White ear, Clear dapple, Sunny stripe, Shiver blaze, Shudder tuft
Apprentices: Shade paw(Violet shade), Ebony paw(Bright dapple)
Queens: Twinkle whisker, mother of Stark kit, Feather kit, and Fluffy kit, Slate stream, no kits yet
Elders: Shadow spot, Ash leap

Emberwind we are annoying by your thing.

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

31 GorgeClan

Emberwind1 I think we get that basically all these clans don't don't ruin it by repeating it every time! LOL! - BloodFang

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

32 Freeze Clan

This clan should be in this list because (in my own imagination: not really in the series) it grew out of the mountain cats, they thrived after the other cats left for the new territory, but then winter came again and took half their remaining clan. All of those cats got superpowers with ice:3

Cats with ice manipulation, how unrealistic can these lame fake clans can get

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

33 JaguarClan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

It has steams and lakes with a lot of fish and trees with rabbits and squrals too. The cats are loyal, kind, fast and strong.

Leader: JaguarStar
Deputy: CrytalSpring
Med: TreeLeave

Lol Jaguarstar is basically Leopardstar

34 Amberclan

How do cats know what amber is

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Cats know what amber is because it’s an eye color!

35 Sharkclan

Half of these names are afull

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Her warrior name was light moon

This is a really good clan because all cats of this clan can do anything like a cat or shark.

Leader: Light star
Deputy: Shine fur
Med:Quartz pelt

36 MistClan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

37 FlowerClan

This clan lives in a lovely forest with green and yellow leaves.It has a camp as an island and water surround the camp/island these cats can swim.Each tree’s base is touching one another and under the roots of one big oak tree is where the nursery is.The elders den is inside the base of the tree right next to the apprentice den and the apprentinces live under the roots of another tree across the nursery.The warriors live in the base of three trees that are all connected and in the middle of the camp is a tell rock and a tree mixed together the leader speaks on the rock and the leaders den is in the base of the tree.
(Founder leader)Sparkstar
Current leader(after founder leader) Ravenstar
Medicine cat: Sweetleaf and Flamepaw
-Lightningstrike ⚡️✨

41 Winterclan

Winter clan A chilled clan that gets along well with sky clan, they are fast runners and they can swim, they have the thickest fur out of any clan there leader is winterfur

42 ElementalClan

I personally think this should be a clan. I have a made up series(not a book or movie, but I want it to be in a book series) about elemental cats. They have a certain gift of the forces of the earth. If the writer of the warrior books is reading this, please add this in one of you books if you write a new book.

Amber kit wandered away from the den, territory, clans. She found a beautiful valley decorated with forests and streams, mountains and valcanoes. She found a friend named Darkkit and together they survived. They became apprentice age, and they made areas to live. Soon they became 12 moons old. They gave each other their warrior names. Amberpaw became Ambersong. Darkpaw became Darksky. Soon they mated and had kits. Their kits were Firekit (orange with white stripes female) Skykit (white Tom) and Icekit (gray female) they found mates when they were warriors. Soon powers developed. The Moon Pack was a clan of cats that had mind powers and things like that.
Fire pack had fire powers and Water pack had water powers. They were Elemental Clan.
Moon pack lived in a shadowy forest, fire pack near a valconoe, and water pack near ponds. Now they will tell you their legend.

43 Doomclan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

DoomClan VS. HappyClan lol

44 Fly Clan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

45 Snowclan

"Oh, hi," Winterstar purred in an innocent tone. "Did you get lost? Well, take a tour of SnowClan first."
*cricket noises*
"That's because EchoClan took over." - Willowfur

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Whats with these weird names, like seriously, pelt star (was his/her name pelt pelt, because pelt is only used as a suffix for names), white warrior (racist) and dimond spirit? whats next, avocado cloud, turnip toes?
