Best Warrior Cat Clans

The Top Ten

1 Riverclan

RiverClan fish! RiverClan swim! RiverClan use water to win! Seriously, RiverClan is the best. They are not scared of water like the others, they are proud of their Clan, which they have lots of good reasons for, they are clever, graceful, and loyal. True, the other Clans are also good, but nothing can beat the awesomeness of RiverClan! Their water combat moves are great and well thought over, and they have the most unique- and in my opinion best- talent of all the Clans. They have a great territory, especially at the lake. The river is missing there, but they have a lake and streams, and more lush trees. RiverClan adapted to fishing in the lake, and as long as the Clans stand, RiverClan will be the best!

I love Riverclan! Even though Thunderclan or Shadowclan might be cool, I still think Riverclan is the best. I mean, they get to swim and fish! They have a great and unique talent that no other clan has. Yes, Windclan are fast runners, and yes, Shadowclan is sneaky, but swimming and fishing are the still the best talents. They also have really pretty dens with seashells and flowers. I mean who doesn't like THAT?!

River clan is the best because they have water in their territory and they use water as there tactic. they rarely run
Out of food and they were the last ones to decide to leave the forest. in the lake territory river clan have a forest, lake (it says on the warrior website that they own the lake) and a river. all that comes with a large territory.

In my opinion, RiverClan is the best because they have plenty of fish and water in their territory. Yay for more fresh-kill! They are also helpful to ThunderClan. Plus they can fight in water! RiverClan is the only clan who can swim properly and fish! Their camp is safe from other Clans because the other Clans don't wanna swim to attack them (if there even is a real reason to attack them! ) RiverClan is the best!

2 Thunderclan

ThunderClan cats are always the first to help the others, which has proven to be a strength and not a weakness. Their leaders are the fairest and kindest, and their warriors are as fierce as any. ThunderClan also tends to be the most picked on, yet they still risk themselves for the sakes of the others. That is true courage my friends. And lets face it, they have great and noble cats like Firestar, Graystripe, Bramblestar, Lionheart, Brackenfur, Whitestorm, Bluestar etc. And they have kind and loving cats like Brightheart, Ferncloud and Daisy, etc. And they have fierce and loyal cats like Jayfeather, Squirrelflight, Thornclaw, Cloudtail (who's also sweet), Lionblaze, Toadstep and Foxleap, etc... And all the other cats I failed to mention - they are all great and noteworthy cats that I would be proud to call my clanmates (except a few villains like Thistleclaw, Mapleshade, Tigerstar, Darkstripe...) Three cheers for the yolks of ThunderClan!

Thunderclan is obviously the best clan ever.
They are the most noble and caring.
They have such great cats.
However it could have been better if they kicked Daisy out.
Daisy is too helpless to the clan.
Three cheers for Thunderclan!

Thunderclan is the best in my opinion they have the fairest leaders and their kits always grow to be strong in my opinion join thunderclan!

ThunderClan is best clan.

3 Windclan

WindClan, like Hufflepuff, are sweet and fair and never waver to help others in most cases. If they feel insulted or threatened they fight like the cat within (Or like badger in my case) and never fail to find the best way to solve a fight. They have never came up with any evil cats. Ring a bell? For those who have read Harry Potter WindClan has a strong connection to Hufflepuff and is a just, fair, honest, and loyal clan that is unwavering even when faced with near death. They accept help unlike other clans because they understand they sometimes need it. They are truly strong fighters and because of that they can see their weaknesses and strengths and with their kind souls take care of those in need and express more hat anger and growling in a fight. They are a good ally that only ThunderClan can understand most of the time. Another bell. WindClan and Hufflepuff are alike in another way. Strong connection to the clan that is the main place, house, clan, area, etc. I know WindClan is ...more

Windclan may be considered more mild and less involved than Shadowclan and Thunderclan, but that's not exactly a bad thing, if you think about it. The thing is, if you're less aggressive, and have more of a degree of empathy and helpfulness, you'll be more respected by other clans. This means that the other clans are less likely to attack them. Think about it. How many times has Thunderclan warred against Windclan? Not much at all. As for Shadowclan, the ratio of attacks on Thunderclan far outweigh the ratio of attacks on Windclan.

As for another reason Windclan is the best, they have good living conditions. The woods may be beautiful, and filled with an abundance of foods and scents, and the river and the willows may be amazing, but it would feel much better to have a cool spring breeze blowing against you peacefully while you sprint than to be treading on pointy pine needles and tripping over sticks.

One last reason Windclan is the best is because they're the most ...more

WindClan is an underrated clan that could honestly get more credit. Despite the fall in my likeness with Onestar as leader, they will be redeemed if Ashfoot becomes leader. When they do I honestly think they will be better off. Tallstar was a great leader who had a strong sense of foresight, not wanting to shed blood where it wasn't needed. WindClan in all is a clan that would fight any enemy to protect themselves and maybe the rest of the clans if needed. Quick in the mind, noble and believes in what we would call chivalry. They are the knights of the Warriors world.

WindClan, in my opinion, IS THE BEST CLAN EVER! They never refuse to help other cats, WindClan is just pure kindness! I don't know why WindClan isn't number one, And I really like where they live, the moors sounds fun! The only thing I don't like about WindClan is, that they are near the gorge. WindClan isn't basic either. (I'm looking at you ThunderClan) They are - Short, swift, friendly. I do love WindClan, another reason is, I can easily make OCs, I've made: Badger 'Paw, White 'Eye, Chive 'Paw, Thorn 'Tail, And Rabbit 'Leap. I'm really happy Erin hunter made Wind 'Clan. But..Above all else DO NOT STEAL MY OCS!

4 Shadowclan

ShadowClan is awesome! After Russetfur's death you really get an inside view of ShadowClan and you realize nothing means more to them than following the code. Clans always thought they were really bad but they were not there are just individual cats that are horrid. They are misunderstood cats.

Shadowclan cats aren't mean, its just that there is barely any prey in the forest for them! In fact, I think that they are the most loyal if they are willing to break the code for the well being of there clan.

Shadow clan is best clan, shadow clan is not evil, it just had a lot of bad leaders and their choice of symbolism, you now shadow clan hunts in the shadows, shadows are dark, dark is evil, etc. (also the nursery stories fern cloud told about shadow clan starving their elders is cruel )

Second fave after Bloodclan just like it I guess.

5 Starclan

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

They are the people (well cats) that guide all of the greatest leaders! They should have 100%!

StarClan give vague prophecies and omens, can only sometimes go into the real world and keep changing weather or not they control who dies. - Emberwind1

Starclan cats are such female dogs. My main reason is that in Leafpool’s Wish, when Leafpool can get Lionkit out of her a**, Yellowfang just has to float down and be like “NEVER FEAR STARCLAN IS HERE” Like, what? Where were you when Silverstream was at the ThunderClan border bleeding to death? And also, they send all these stupid prophecies that half the time don’t make sense until, like, 4 books later! All around, StarClan just sucks.

6 Skyclan

In my opinion I like skyclan the best because they hunt in trees and have powerful hind legs. Most of other people think they are weak just because they drove them out but their not. My loyalty will always be with skyclan

SkyClan is the best! My loyalty will forever be to SkyClan. I mean, hello! They climb trees, even hunt in them, and fight in them, with powerful hind legs! Climbing trees is the best.

Skyclan may not be a main clan in the book but it is still a clan and so I love it. I feel sorry for them because they were sent out of all the clan's territorry by all the clans. Skyclan names could be better too though. I think Firestar did a better naming than Leafstar

I like this clan my original character named ivyheart is from there and they're a strong but forgotten clan

7 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

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

Is this the modern or the ancient one, because the modern one is terrible in second series, Moonrise! The ancient one in DotC was nice. Half Moon, Snow Hare, Dewy Leaf, Lion's Roar, Tall Shadow, Jagged Peak, Gray Wing, Fluttering Bird, etc. That was the first series I've ever read and it was great. It was interesting about how it all came together with Turtle Tail being mates with a kittypet, Star Flower being One-eye's daughter, Clear Sky killing Falling Feather, the battle, Slate becoming Gray Wing's mate, Slash and his group, all the Clans forming... In Moonrise, when Squirrelpaw, Brambleclaw, Feathertail, Crowpaw, and Stormfur were starting home from the sun-drown place, they discussed on whether to go throughout the Twolegplace or the mountains. They went to the mountains and found the Tribe of Rushing Water. They noticed all the cats were acting strange and soon, Stoneteller and the other cats went to the Cave of Pointed Stones about the ' silver cat ' prophecy from the Tribe of ...more

8 Bloodclan

Blood clan is a bad "clan", but when you read The Rise of Scourge, you might feel at least a little emotion for Tiny (Scourge)

Why do you love blood clan they are so EVIL

I hate this clan:(

I think its not fair to scourge how he was treated, and that's why he is evil, so I do understand him, but I still hate bloodclan

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

Tiger clan they have amazing coat patterns

Cool clan name

oh hello

The Newcomers

? 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.

The Contenders

11 LionClan

I loved that Heathertail and Lionblaze made up their own clan! It was so Funny! - Dewblossom

Why does heather tail have purple eyes in the cats of the clans field guide

A swampy marsh area with a pond at the center hunting area.

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

21 LavaClan

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

How do cats now what lava is

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

Lavastar, what a very original name for a cat from lava clan (sarcasm)

35 Fly Clan

This clan does not exist. - Emberwind1

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
