Top 10 Forbidden Warrior Cat Couples


The Top Ten

1 Dovewing x Tigerheart Dovewing x Tigerheart

I just love it. I love it for many reasons. People say Dovewings stupid, I say their stupid. I love the development, the choices, an how it's not as simple as,
"Hey! I'm leaving this clan now! " Or, "I'm just gonna find a new mate." Yes. Dovewing does this, but instead of taking it her whole life, she admits it and things are okay. This is my favorite ship the Erin's ever made

Sorry I think this is great except for dovewing bribing tigerheart like that!

I love this ship!

The super edition TigerHeart's shadow is really sad and joyful at points. Their love really cannot be bound not even by the chains of StarClan.

2 Graystripe x Silverstream

I don't like this couple. Silverstream is old news and Graystripe loves Millie now.

Gray stripe x Silverstream is the first forbidden romance that you learn about in the series therefore the original and stormfur and feathertail are the best

To be honest, this is one of the only "forbidden romances" in Warriors I actually enjoyed. That's probably because it was the first one. Now, I'm really sick of all the "forbidden romances". Basically, if it's a main character nowadays, they're gonna be in some sort of forbidden relationship. It was nice at first, but now it feels really old and cliched.

This is definitely my favorite one it should be the top one

3 Crowfeather x Leafpool

So in my opinion, this ship is absolute trash, and I will tell you why :) So first off, this ship came absolutely out of nowhere! Like at first, he hates her, and all of a sudden, he loves her? Like Vicky, What's up with that? They made no bond except him saving her. At least Nightcloud and him had been in the same clan and they knew each other and Feathertail and him went on a long journey together (Crowtail 4 life) Crowfeather also seemed to not act like himself around Leafpool, like he was far off somewhere all the time. I almost think he was using Leafpool as a replacement for Feathertail, like he saw nothing in her, only that she was someone who he could take care off. They got in fights way easier than Feathertail and Crowfeather. It's like Vicky was a little desperate to find someone for Crowfeather to mate with, and was desperate for Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf to be born. I just found it a little weird and I liked Crowtail way better so yeah. Just my opinion but yeet.

Take this couple, crumble it up and throw in a garbage can.

Crowfeather and leafpools relationship had a lot to do with the plot of the third series and was actually very important to the story..

I hope he chooses Leafpool in Starclan... (by the way, if you're reading this and they ARE a couple in Starclan, I wrote this in March 2019, The Broken Code series has not come out yet. So you have to be from the future to know that.)

4 Oakheart x Bluefur

I loved all of their interactions and everything and actually out of all forbidden romances, they have the coolest kits, and they are actually like the only ones, who's feelings are really disvribed by the authors... So ya, actually heartbreaking, but amazing

This is my second favourite. It was like Oakheart and Bluefur were so happy before they had kits, and they were so loving and playful. Then they had kits and the sadness came in rolling waves! - Aquastar_of_DewClan


I agree this one was adorable

5 Firestar x Spottedleaf

Sandstorm was so loyal to him but even after she died he's still crushing over her! Honestly I don't like this ship

Loyal mate who stood by your side and had kids and grand kids with Vs childhood crush - Murphypaw

I like Spottedleaf but Firestar X Spottedleaf...uh? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

I think that they could have been a good couple if it had worked out, but still, I like sandstorm and firestar together too though

6 Cinderpelt x Firestar


You mean this is wrong by being a forbidden relationship on a list of forbidden relationships lol - Murphypaw

For the people who say that they were only friends, look again. It was confirmed in the books. At the very end of (SPOILERS) River of Fire, even Cinderpelt says it herself.

I think they were meant to be together because in the books it says she was never meant to be a medicine cat, and she was reborn because she never got the life she was supposed to have- being a warrior and having a mate (who looks suspiciously like Firestar)

They were NEVER meant to be together! Cinderpelt was only FRIENDS with Firestar! They were NOT in love!

It is confirmed that Cinderpelt liked Firestar in the book Twilight. - RisingMoon

7 Jayfeather x Half-Moon

When Jayfeather wasn't with Half Moon, he was just a serious, grumpy medicine cat. When he met the ancient tribes and got teased, Half Moon was there for him. When he got doubted by the other cats, Half Moon was the only one who completely trusted him. She was always there for him, and her affection for him got rid of Jayfeather's angry attitude. They started playing together, and Jayfeather finally started showing love and having fun. When he had to leave, he got emotional about another cat (which never happens) and never wanted to leave her. I nearly cried my eyes out when they said their goodbyes in Sign Of The Moon, it was so sad and touching that I had to take a thirty minute break before reading the next chapter about Lionblaze's ridiculous training. And the saddest part was when Half Moon said "I will wait for you forever, Jay's Wing! "

BEST SHIP EVER Jay x Half-Moon forever

My favorite couple Jayfeather was so happy with her!

This should be replaced with Jayfeather x Stick >

8 Ivypool x Hawkfrost Ivypool x Hawkfrost

Hawkfrost was clearly abusive to Ivypool, I don't get why people ship this. - subscribe2pewdiepie

Oh my gosh yes this is my favorite ship of all time! I always tell people about these two but they are all like nah ivy and fern. But I can just picture it if hawkfrost didn't die and if became good and they had a forbidden ship and they had two little tom cats spikekit and flurrykit and hawk died protecting ivypool and his kits! Sorry I started fantasizing. I think I really started loving this ship when ivypool was an apprentice and hawkfrost took net her in a meadow in her dreams when she first started training in the dark forest. Why did hawkfrost have to die?! Thanks so much for recognizing this ship!

Yep super cool


9 Briarlight x Jayfeather

Best ship! I love those two characters and they are perfect for each other

They are not forbidden - spottedleafpool

Love it briarlight is my favorite cat besides micah (moth flight's vision) AND Y DID BRIARLIGHT HAVE TO DIE

So adorable. The best ship. JayxBriar is so sweet, and so adorable, and so funny, and so perfect, and so beautiful that I just want to die, I ship it so hard. WHY IS THIS NOT CANON?!

10 Tigerstar x Sasha

They made hawk frost EVIL!

It's not forrbiden

( Read le Comics ) - Snowpelt

The Contenders

11 Jayfeather x Stick

I laughed so hard when I read this. This pokes fun at the entire power of three series. This is hilarious. Whoever put this here is the smartest person ever. -Stormshard

Yes. Best ship ever.

Ship it because it is medicine cats

This is the best couple of ever! #Jayxstick4ever - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

12 Yellowfang x Raggedstar

They would have been so cute

I ship it but I still think Yellowfang deserves better

YeLlOwFaNg Is BeSt CaT

Hate how Raggedstar treated Yellowfang after she chose to be a Med cat. - QueenOfRacing

( father of Brokentail/star ) - Snowpelt

13 Fallen Leaves x Hollyleaf

This ship is accurate. Fallen Leaves helped her and gave her his life, I believe. After she left with that fox, she came back, she didn't want to leave Fallen Leaves after what he had done. Fallen Leaves being a rude boi -3- but then forgiving her. They also acted like they were a Clan, that isn't needed but, yeah

YAS! They are meant for each other and I am so glad they were able to meet in starclan. Guys if u read this and vote for Fallen Leavesx Hollyleaf then look up fallen leave - his theme I gaurentee u will cry like I did

She didn't want to leave the tunnels, because fallen leaves. He helped her in the tunnels. Idc about the HUGE age gap. - CloudyDaze

YAY! - Aquastar_of_DewClan

14 Leafpool x Crowfeather

I LOVVE THIS COUPLE! my second fave is firestar x leafpool!

I'm surprised this is so low. - RisingMoon

There's another Leafpool x Crowfeather here and they're in the second place - cassiabez

Suprised this isn’t higher on the list. I wish that Leafpool ran away with Crowfeather! He didn’t deserve for is heart to be broken for a second time. 😩

15 Feathertail x Crowfeather

This was the first romance I ever read about and crowfeather and I clicked but feathertail and crowfeather are two cats I love!

Better than Leafpool or Nightcloud one all the way. Nothing more to say really. She literally DIED for him. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM HER CROWPOOL SHIPPERS?!?! Plus, if Feathertail hadn't helped him come out of his shell, the Crowpool and Nightfeather ship wouldn't of even happened.

Featherfeather is so cute! Crowfeather literally named himself after her. I don't care about Crowpool - that wasn't *true*. No, Feathertail was the one to break Crowfeather (than Crowpaw) out of his shell.

16 Tallstar x Jake

I just... yeah... I love it... Its... yeah...

This was actually said by the erins that this was a cannon couple. not mates just a couple. and OH MY GOLLY GOATS they are so CUTE together! I so ship it, I mean... such a cute couple. HOW IS THIS FORBIDDEN! I'm really suprised that this is so low.

It's just amazing.. just... amazing..

I ship it! In the books he thought about Jake again and said “No, the cats I love” confirmed! :3

17 Brightsky x Mudfur

This isn't forbidden love; Mudfur was a warrior before he became a medicine cat; and he had a mate and kits; Brightsky, Leopardstar, and three other kits that died.

It's so sad! She had FOUR kits, and three of them DIED, and she DIED. Mudfur was so heartbroken! Now you know why Leopardstar was so reluctant to leave when the twolegs destroyed the forest; her father was about to die! It's was so sad! (in Crookedstar's Promise)

I didn't remember this. Was it in a Super Edition? - RiverClanRocks

Ya, it was. He kinda was fallin in love with her... But it was hard to tell. - SpiritStar

This isn't forbidden. They were mates until Brightsky died then Mudfur became medicine cat.

18 Alderpaw x Needlepaw

I like this ship I mean I like every ship except Cloudtail and Daisy

So cute! Her attitude and his calmness are like Brambleflight! And you can tell that he likes her, even though he pretends that it's just friendship he feels for her. - CloudyDaze

Good ship, - VERYCHICK

Wow Thunderclan Medicine cat x Shadow clan apprentice... that's BREAKING A CODE TWICE AT ONE TIME... but yeah - Nightkillo

19 Clawclaw x Duskfur

Lol. I love this one for some reason.


Wow this is a terrible list

I never thought clawclaw could be a name

20 Cinderheart x Lionblaze

This isn't forbidden... - CloudyDaze



Even if Honeyfern liked Lionblaze first, they were never meant to be together. Imagine them being mates. Cinderheart and Lionblaze would never connect, and when Jayfeather tells Cinderheart that she is actually Cinderpelt, Lionblaze wouldn’t of told Cinderheart that she WAS Cinderpelt, and she is NOW Cinderheart. Then she would have her medicine cat ceremony,and then the whole story would of been jank. I think Cinderheart and Lionblaze were a special couple with beautiful kits. They are my #1 couple!

21 Leafpool x Mothwing

NO. She shouldn't go to the Dark Forest for not dating Mothwing lol. She has a right to date whoever she wants. If she wants to date and love a trash-bag, let her love a trash-bag damn it

Leafpool should go to the dark forest for dating crowfeather and not mothwing

One of my favorite ships

I love these two! Crowfeather and Leafpool isn't nearly as good as these two.

22 Bramblestar x Jessy


Squrrflights jeslous! Squrrilflighta jeslous! :3 (by the way sorry for the spelling)

They were cute together, it's not really forbidden but still... she was a kittypet. She led him away from his true love, but she taught him stuff too. I think they were really cute...

23 Mapleshade x Appledusk

Oof I hate and love this ship

I had to vote for this :( I know shes evil but poor mapleshade

Appledusk didn't deserve Mapleshade. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

Guys. this is #1 in forbidden ships so sad

24 Moth Flight x Micah

(almost my favorite ship)

Even though I think Moth Flight was a little marysueish, I love this couple.

They were so cute! Micah was a Skyclan cat and a farm cat, whilst Moth Fight was Windclan.

Micah should’ve lived longer... I hate Clear Sky so much! If it weren’t for his fox-hearted boundaries, then he still would’ve been alive

25 Ashfur x Scourge

Let me ruin this ship for you...
Jake quince and had firestar
He also mated nutmeg and had scourge
Firestar mated sandstorm
Sandstorm's father is retail
Retail mated brindleface
Brindleface mated white storm
They had ashfur...

Jake and Nutmeg had Firestar, and Jake and Quince had Scourge
Sandstorm's father is Redtail not retail - spottedleafpool


yes - Willowfur

Why do people hate this ship I ❤️ it.

26 Stargleamstar x Jazzpawstar

You men Glemastra and Jazpwstra - RoseWeasley

27 Lionpaw x Heatherpaw

No. He only liked her for her looks. She's an foxheart - CloudyDaze


They were adorable together, young cats in love not even caring about the clan borders. Until one day they realized they could never be together...

I never really liked Heathertail. She became a total jerk to him after he broke up with her. - RisingMoon

28 Sopttedleaf x Firestar
29 Darkstripe x Tigerstar

Tigerstar never loved anyone but himself, I'm pretty sure. I felt bad for Darkstripe and even more if Darkstripe did love him. This counts officially and with AUs. Darkstripe at least looked up to him (though he was a poor role model) and that can turn into love. Sadly it'd always be one-sided. Tigerstar was a huge jerk. I didn't like Darkstripe at all (Sorrelkit! ) but I did feel bad for him at least a little.

I swear I looove this! he always followed him around because he liked him! erins confirmed it!

30 Bluestar x Oakheart

I feel like we should have got a book or seires that takes place before bluestar becomes the leader of thunderclan

Bluestar and Oak heart do go great together that they had MistyStar and Stonefur who was killed for no reason.-ThunderFur P.S they totally 😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻 each other.

31 Firestar x Sandstorm

My favorite ship! ya but its not forbidden...

It's not forbidden

One it happened
two it's the best
i love sandstorm I mean sure she was a meanie to firepaw but she learns a grows as a character learns that

(and personaly I never really liked the ships between firestar x spottedleaf or firestar x cinderpelt I mean you can like it if you want this is just my opinion so don't bite my head of for saying this)

32 Scourge x Firestar

THEY (clap) ARE (clap) HALF (clap) BROTHERS! - RoseWeasley

No! I hate Scourge!

33 Gorsetail x Hollyleaf

Both extremely loyal to the warrior code; I wouldn't put ahead of Fallen Leaves and Hollyleaf; but they are pretty cute.

Both are she-cats, from different clans, huge age gap, AND don't even know each other. Wow. Just wow.

Who in the world is Gorsetail?

Okay, just saying' that the person who commented before me is sick. what's wrong with them both being she-cats? just because the erins completely ignored lgbtqia+ doesn't mean that we can't ship cats (gay warriors ships are the best ships, by the way). I think this ship is fine, though didn't get enough airspace so nobody knows what it is.

34 Palebird x Sandgorse
35 Tigerstar x Scourge

Look chubby who every sent this but there both boys weirdo by blank. Bye

Oh god not this again it’s based off an awkward, and non kid appropriate warrior cat animation about gay cats

Oh no don’t look this up it comes up with weird perverted things that you will never unsee. ~Galaxy Meowth

36 Longtail x Rabbit

The rabbit loved him so much she scratched his eyes out! - sydneyhelget

Lol, ikr, all of a sudden, someone screams something about Longtail, and that he was slashed in the eye by a rabbit. -_-

37 Featherstorm x Hal

They were so cute before Hal dissed her, Raggedstar, and Scorchwind. There's no denying it, people. Their personalities fit. She can soothe and tolerate him and he can bring her back to earth. Don't hate me, I have a right to an opinion, just like you.

What book is that?


38 Raggedstar x Yellowfang

I love this couple but Raggedstar needs to treat her better. #Treatherbetter

39 Starstar x Clawclaw

Lol.Are There cata Even real?

Clanclan cats

They're born to each other.Literally - cassiabez

Hi Starstar how is it leading Clanclan? Your dep is Clawclaw and med is Furfur. Warriors? Oii, I bet they are Heartheart, Peltpelt, Leafleaf, Splashsplash, Gingerginger, Mistmist, I guess that is all. Goodgoodbyebye

40 Featherfeather x Stormstorm

yes - Willowfur

41 Ryewhisker x Cloudberry
42 Alderheart x Violet

It's VELVET and he double hockey sticks NO - CloudyDaze

I don't know for sure if its Violet :3

43 Willowwillow x Maplemaple
44 Streamsilver x Stripegray

We the hell with these weird things?

Streamsilver and Stripegray of ClanBackwards. Other ships include Featherjay x kcitS, Starfire x Stormsand, Feathercrow x Tailfeather, Feathercrow x Poolleaf and Starstar (leader of ClanClan) x Starleader (leader of ClanBackwards). - Willowfur

45 Pebbleshine x Hawkwing

I feel bad for them... STUPID TWOLEGS AND MONSTERS! - Nightkillo

46 Daisy x Spiderleg

They were in the same clan

47 Fallowtail x Reedfeather
48 Dustshine x Willowflower

Who are they? - Spottedtail

49 Leafstar x Billystorm

Leafstar changed the warrior code to be together. - Spottedtail
