Top 10 Forbidden Warrior Cat Couples


The Top Ten

1 Dovewing x Tigerheart Dovewing x Tigerheart

They were happy, they saved each other's lives; and then Bumblestripe got in the way. If Millie hadn't come into the series then he wouldn't have been born. STUPID MILLIE!

Dovewing BROKE up with Tigerheart and SHE went to Bumblestripe to be mates, not the other way around. - iiDreamCat

- goes through the list trying to find Swiftpaw and Brightheart-
- sees nothing-
- throws computer against the wall and cries, going into her room and adding more Swift x Bright drawings on top of the other Swift x Bright art-

I don't hate it anymore, but they're not good in my opinion. Felt like the romance was extremely forced before, and it would've been nice if Dovewing stayed in Thunderclan. Instead of creepy Bumblestripe, Dovewing might've went with Foxleap. They would've been really cute. Shame that they killed off him regardless.

Please people read bright guardian akia’s video called THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT BUMBLESTRIPE. And it announces that bumblestripe’s love is actually just harassment, peer pressure, and emotional manipulation. After she saves a cat from the tunnel Bumblestripe start’s to have a crush. And this is after she is meeting with Tigerheart. And in one book she says “my meetings with Tigerheart are the most important thing to me” as there having a great time and developing a great relationship when Bumblestripe is just slightly flirting. Then after one gathering after they share one romantic moment. Bumblestripe walks a little too close to Dovewing. Weirded out she runs ahead to get away. Then Blossomfall ran up and said “you’ve stolen my brother’s heart.” But she said it seriously with warning. Then later in another book his relationship starts to tip to the disgusting size. One day he slept in the apprentice den with Dovepaw and Ivypaw because apparently there was a leak on him ...more

2 Graystripe x Silverstream

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. - idontreallycare

How are they not number one? They were the first forbidden love in the series! ( if you read from the start, no super editions) her death was heartbreaking!

( I love forbidden love ) - Snowpelt

Graystripe and Silverstream loved each other so much. Even after fighting there own clans. Graystripe is loyal to Silverstream and slilverstream is loyal back they however, can’t be together because of warrior code. That does not stop the fact that they keep on bonding until Silverstream dies.

3 Crowfeather x Leafpool

Yes, maybe Crowfeather and Leafpool weren't the best parents, or siblings or whatever, but what they had here was sweet. All I want was that it didn't go by so FAST and that there was some more behind. It was somewhat random that Crowfeather all of a sudden liked Leafpool and then they got serious about it. I do love them though.

This is an amazing couple. It truly made it feel like they loved each other unlike Crowpaw and Feathertail which was more of a high school crush like situation.

Crow x Leaf! My second couples! - QueenOfRacing

Okay. This is by far the best couple. They both leave their clans and their whole lives just to be together. Of course they weren’t good parents but nobody is. Crowfeather wanted to leave everything behind just to be with Leadpool.

4 Oakheart x Bluefur

I love this! Their personalities work together so well! Oakheart teasing Bluestar, Bluestar unable to hold back her feelings for him, the relationship was tragic, but they had three wonderful kits. - MelancholyMist

I love this couple. Bluefur is uptight and practical. Oakheart is goofy and let loose. Oakheart is a dream boat. Lines like, "The only thing that can hurt me is keeping me from you! "

My favorite couples. Oak x Blue forever! - QueenOfRacing

5 Firestar x Spottedleaf

Really? Firestar x Spottedleaf? They barely talked! Sandstorm is a sweet cat and his actually mate while Spottedleaf being just a childhood crush.

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

So sad this didn't happen - Snowpelt

Sandstorm should have died
spottedleaf is so cool

6 Cinderpelt x Firestar

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)

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.

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

I truly think that they were so meant to be but the only problem with it is how heart breaking it was that they did not get together!
But as a pro warrior cat D.T.W ( deep thinking warrior) I think that it would be a bit to award for them both because when Firestar was Fireheart he was, then known as Ciderpaw was her mentor.
trust me every bone in sadly my human body is crying out to ship them but I need to put this in a mentor/student point of view and say it would be to award for them.
to come to a conclusion even if Ciderpaw became a warrior it would still be a bit (by a lot) award. I see them as a D.T.W that they would probably have father and daughter relationship.

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! "

( It was kinda forbidden, Great couple :3 ) - Snowpelt

I loved this so much it was so sad when he had to leave and she said "i will wait for you for ever Jay's Wing."

This should be replaced with Jayfeather x Stick >

Best couple

9 Briarlight x Jayfeather

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?!

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

10 Tigerstar x Sasha

They made hawk frost EVIL!

( Read le Comics ) - Snowpelt

It's not forrbiden

The Contenders

11 Yellowfang x Raggedstar

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

I ship it but I still think Yellowfang deserves better

YeLlOwFaNg Is BeSt CaT

They would have been so cute

( father of Brokentail/star ) - Snowpelt

12 Jayfeather x Stick

I ship it so much - Rosewhisker

Ship it because it is medicine cats

This is the best ship. It is t exactly forbidden, but Jayfeather is a medicine cat...

I Ship this HARD

13 Fallen Leaves x Hollyleaf

Not really forbidden since Hollyleaf wasn't technically a clan cat anymore, but it was a cute couple.

Yup but if Jay x stick was on here I would choose that

Not really forbidden, but still the best.

Not really forbidden...

14 Leafpool x Crowfeather

I'm surprised this is so low. - RisingMoon

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

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

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 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.

16 Feathertail x Crowfeather

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.

17 Clawclaw x Duskfur

I never thought clawclaw could be a name

Wow this is a terrible list

What the heidi

Hello Clawclaw from ClanClan! Wait, I see...FORBIDDEN LOVE! another mating with cats not in ClanClan!
1. Honor StarStar
2. Remember your ancestors, ex. Featherfeather, Birdbird, Whiskerwhisker, Flowerflower, Skysky, Petalpetal, Breezebreeze, Shadeshade, Flameflame, etc...
3. Clawclaw you are officially named ClawClaw (do not mess with ClayClay)

18 Bramblestar x Jessy


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...

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

19 Cinderheart x Lionblaze


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!

20 Tallstar x Jake

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

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

21 Moth Flight x Micah

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.

I love this couple sooo MUCH!


22 Stargleamstar x Jazzpawstar
23 Leafpool x Mothwing

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

One of my favorite ships

This is honestly my fave ship and I was just scrolling through the entire list to find it! :3

24 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.

25 Bluestar x Oakheart

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

26 Palebird x Sandgorse
27 Alderpaw x Needlepaw

Totally - Swiftdawn

I’m not a fan of forbidden couples, but this is one of my favorite Warriors couples EVER (aside from Jay x Stick and Fire x Sand)

28 Lionpaw x Heatherpaw

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

29 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?

30 Sopttedleaf x Firestar
31 Starstar x Clawclaw

They're born to each other.Literally - cassiabez

Clanclan cats

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

32 Featherfeather x Stormstorm

yes - Willowfur

33 Ashfur x Scourge

yes - Willowfur

34 Firestar x Sandstorm

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)

35 Willowwillow x Maplemaple
36 Tigerstar x Scourge

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

37 Fallowtail x Reedfeather
38 Dustshine x Willowflower

Who are they? - Spottedtail

39 Raggedstar x Yellowfang
40 Leafstar x Billystorm

Leafstar changed the warrior code to be together. - Spottedtail

41 Cloudtail x Daisy

I don't care what you say, they may not be a couple, but still ship them. Second, Daisy never tried to steal him. Read the wikia of "Daisy" (way below)

42 Mapleshade x Appledusk

Guys. this is #1 in forbidden ships so sad

44 Alderheart x Violet
