Best Medicine Cats (Warrior Cats)

The Top Ten
Leafpool Leafpool is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She's the daughter of Firestar and Sandstorm, sister of Squirrelflight, mate of Crowfeather, and mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf

Thank StarClan Leafpool is top! She deserves it. She gives up everything! I don't like the way people are calling Crowfeather a coward, but yes, he didn't deserve her. She is so peaceful and loving, always ready to give, and won't accept anything for herself. I mean, she gave away all she had! Her mate, her kits, her position as a medicine cat, her life, even - she didn't have to do those things, yet she was so selfless. All she ever did was try to help cats! She lied to protect her Clan. If she had become a warrior because her Clan had known she had had kits, ThunderClan would not have had a medicine cat. Who knows how many more cats would have died then? Yet Leafpool cared for her Clan above herself, so she remained a medicine cat. And now people criticise her for lying, when what she did was best for her Clan. Then Hollyleaf, the cat that would never have been born if it wasn't for Leafpool, gives away her secret and Leafpool has the thing that she has hung on for for so long taken ...more

The best medicine cat. She had such a difficult history, and people hate her because of it. But she paid for it. She gave up everything she loved most: her mate; her kits (she handed them over to Squirrelflight); and her place as medicine cat of ThunderClan. Why does she need to suffer even more? It's unfair on her! I think that she was so brave, to follow her heart over her head. It led to the Clans' survival, because if Jayfeather and Lionblaze hadn't been born, who would have been there to save everyone? I hate to have to mention Leafpool's kits, because it's like taking the glory away from her. But Leafpool was always so calm and patient. Who could blame her for falling in love, especially after the sacrifices she makes!

She sacrificed so much for her clan, kits, mate, kin, and everything she ever loved. She fell in love with a coward, gave away her kits for her own good, she never told her clan, and everything is just so tragic. She has no reason to suffer from criticism. If she didn't fall in love, where would Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf be? She gave up her rank as medicine cat and then died, what more can she give? -Leafwish

She gave up everything for her clan, and never gave up! She was also incredibly intelligent, as well as kind, wise, determined, and witty. Along with this, she was an incredible medicine cat, with a vast knowledge of herbs.

Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She heals other cats in her Clan, ThunderClan, and is reincarnated into Cinderheart. She started out as a Warrior apprentice, but was forced to train to be a Medicine Cat instead after getting her leg inijured by a car.

Cinderpelt is so kind and caring, and although she knew Leafpool loves Crowfeather she still lets her 'follow her heart' and used her life to save Sorreltail's kits. She never gave up when at the darkest time (including when her leg... STARCLAN CURSE TIGERCLAW AND THAT MONSTER WHO uh BROKE HER LEG *Sobs*). I felt really happy when she was given her second life as Cinderheart which finally gave her the chance to be a warrior - one that she always dreamed of before she became a med cat.

Yeah. I agree with whoever it was that told starclan to curse tigerclaw and that mean monster that injured her leg. She also let Leafpool follow her heart, and she died such a courageous death. She will always be my one and only fave med cat.

Cinderpelt was a kind medicine cat who had to put up with a twisted leg. Her dream was to become a warrior running through the forest, but she fell into Tigerclaw/stars trap!

My favourite medicine cat all the way. Cinderpelt was so inspiring, so beautiful, so stunning inside and out. She was so patient and kind, a classic Spottedleaf. She should ALWAYS be number one. ALWAYS.

Jayfeather Jayfeather is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He is part of The Three, along with Lionblaze and Dovewing, and has the power to read other cats' minds and walk into other cats dreams. He is blind.

He is the most interesting character in the books, one day he is a grumpy medicine cat and the next he feels sympathy or praises a cat. He is one of the best cats in this series.

He is one of the best. He is a really skilled medicine cat, intelligent and serious. I think one of the best things about him, that also makes the books more interesting, is that he is an ironic character because he isn’t the medicine cat that you would expect. Most med cats are caring and compassionate, but he is not that type of cat and this leads to some really funny moments: “I’m here to HEAL you. If you want sympathy, then go to the nursery!”

Jayfeather deserves to be number one. If you don't agree here is why.
1. He is an interesting character
2. He is one of the few cats in the series that was born with a disability
3. He is a good med cat
4. He had super powers for crying out loud
5. He is AMAZING!
I haven't read the books with him in them for a little while so I'm running out of reasons why he should be number one but he should be

This dude is grumpy for no reason at all I- WHERE IS SPOTTEDLEAF?!

1. He has super-powers.
2. He's blind, so it is interesting to see the world from his perspective.
3. He's really cute.
4. He has a unique personality.

Yellowfang Yellowfang was a ThunderClan medicine cat in the original series of Warriors. She initially was a medicine cat from ShadowClan, but she was banished by her son, Brokenstar. She was then found by Firestar, who was then Firepaw, and brought into ThunderClan.

Although Yellowfang was really grumpy, she showed courage and loyalty when fire raged in Thunderclan she took her life trying to save the cats that were left behind. She watched her son grow into a tyrant, and from the moment Raggedstar set his eyes on his son he forgot everything about Yellowfang.
Just saying, I haven't read Yellowfang's Secret, not yet.

Evan tho Yellowfang had a bad temper she was still a really good medicine cat.
I feel sorry for her watch her mate flirt with other cats, her son becoming evil she didn't have a good life...

I love her! Maybe spottedleaf and Leafpool was better medicine cats BUT she is so great and have the best grumpy personality!

Yellowfang should be higher up, she is truly magnificent, she went through a lot unlike Leafpool who bunked up with crowfeather of all cats and got cheated out by her family. It surprised me when reading yellowfangs secret - since you spoiled leafpools' death I'm spoiling this. - that nobody except for sagewhisker, raggedstar, Firestar and some other cats I think found out. I was devastated when she died of smoke inhalation, she was the top cat of the books

Spottedleaf Spottedleaf is a tortoiseshell she-cat in the series "Warrior Cats" by Erin Hunter. She first appears in book 1, Into The Wild.

She is so gentle and caring to the cats that are hurt. She is even pretty. I think that if I was a tom, I would love her with all my heart and don't care about the medicine cat code. Because of her I sort of want to be come a medicine cat now...!

She is so sweet and gentle! I loved how she saved Firestar's mate, Sandstorm in her second time. She is so caring unlike someone... *cough, cough* Rainflower

Yes she is so caring kind an compassionate! She makes being hurt not such a bad thing because she is literally a RAY OF SUNLIGHT. That should be her warrior name! “Let all cats gather under the highrock. Spotted paw is ready for her warrior name. You will now be known as Sunlight,for your cheerful energy and kindness.” Meowed Bluestar.

She is my fave she deserves to be number 1! it is sooo cute how Firestar has a crush on her in the first book and it is so sad how she dies twice! I think there should be a book called spottedleaf's return! I like Sandstorm and her kits but before all of the spottedleaf lovers come after me, let me say that I ship Firestar x Spottedleaf and for some reason I ship Sandstorm x Dustpelt. please donut judge me. FYI I am Firestar and Spottedleafs kit. I am a tortoiseshell she-cat with a ginger chest and paws, one amber eye, one green eye, and I am a medicine cat named Emberfoot. (FYI I HATE HATE HATE Tigerstar and he deserves to DIE IN A HOLE go to the place of no stars, and DIE AGAIN. not my mom. anyway, by the way Thunder, Wind, River and Shadow let my mom back into StarClan, (where Firestar is by the way) and she had me in StarClan with Firestar, then I was given life as a black tom named Crowtail and a she-cat named Turtlefurs kit, but really I am spottedleaf and firestars kit. ...more


He was great and served long and hard. I don't get why Leafpool is at the top.
She was a bad MedicineCat. She let cat's lives go like Honeyfern and Cinderpelt. She is selfish for leaving with Crowfeather honestly.

Littlecloud is awesome! - Star

Littlecloud is a great shadowclan medicine cat!

My good short son

Mothwing Mothwing is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series named Warrior cats. She is a dappled-golden with ember eyes. She's one of Riverclan's current medicine cats, more.

She's, like, the worst medicine cat. The omen to make her a medicine cat was actually fake, and she endangers her Clan by not believing in StarClan so she doesn't get omens about important things! Go be a warrior, Mothwing!

She is a very beautiful and interesting she-cat as she might be the only medicine-cat that doesn't believe in StarClan, which gives her a unique character because she is so different from all the other cats. Even though she is so different, her healing abilities are perfect!

I really like Mothwing. She doesn't believe in StarClan, and her being a medicine cat gives her a really strong personality. I find she was amazing, managing to hide her secret for so long.

I loved her too! Even though she has the heritage of Tigerstar and the sister to Hawkfrost, she was a good medicine cat. Mistystar had no right to make her step down in her rank to the Clan, just because Mothwing didn't believe in StarClan. It was also cute when she saw Willowkit's first signs of becoming a medicine cat. She's a great friend to Leafpool, has a nice name, and is really beautiful with her golden tabby pelt. Mothwing is awesome at what she does, even if she's not Clanborn.


Runningnose was Yellowfangs first apprentice and he had to put up with her snappy personality. He was a brilliant mentor to little cloud

Nothing on Runningnose? Well I think Runningnose was a great medicine cat. He held his Clan together when Nightstar and Cinderfur were sick. And he had to deal with his battle-hungry brother and sister.

Remember how loyal he was to Yellowfang as her apprentice? I miss him so much!

I respect him very much. He has a weird name just because he has a runny nose. Poor thing. - Morningshine


She is sweet and gentle.

Such smooth ways...

She is so SWEET! ( I Think They Need a Super edition Named Willowshine's Destiny)



He should be in love with Needletail.
She’d move to ThunderClan and they’d have kits named Echokit (white and silver she-kit) and Stormkit (pale ginger, white and gray spotted she-cat) - Morningshine.

Now here is a good and loyal medicine cat in a vision of shadows, he was one of my favorite characters.

Alderheart was good at his job

The Contenders

Extemely underrated considering how long he lived, 153 moons (12.75 years) at death.

that's a LONG time. Heres also a line from Barkface in the books:

"Betrayal could come from anywhere. You must stand alone, knowing your ancestors walk with you, and you alone."
— Barkface to Kestrelflight in Night Whispers, page 154

No one has nothing to say? Well then I think Barkface was a wonderful medicine cat. He cared about Tallstar when he was dying, he cared about the other clans ( and his clan ), and he cared about Mudfur so much! He may not been as swag as Yellowfang, as funny as Jayfeather, or as smart as Leafpool ( I think I did that wrong lol ) but he is a great medicine cat that should be top 5

Ok windclan fans, if you do not like barkface, your crazy. He was tallstars bff! He was also a very good cat, a kind and Gentle one to

He never really has much of a personality


She's meh. BUT I LOVE HER! I know that kind of contradicts what I just said but the first sentence was the truth, the second was my opinion. So yeah.

She was so lovely, and to think she used to be a kittypet! It seems impossible, thinking of how far she came.

Best medicine cat ever! She was a kittypet and then a warrior but she never doubted herself ever! - Morningshine

How is she not in the top ten she is like my favorite cat - Star


She was a great medicine cat and mentor to Mudfur. She was also an amazing friend to crooked/kit/jaw/star. She also knew how to put cats in their place(Rainflower) she was kind, compassionate, smart, social, and faithful to her clan. I love bramble berry.

One of my favorites! She helped my favorite leader heal his jaw better, and she's one of the few rare medicine cats who haven't broken the warrior code.

Pretty, and so caring and loving! I think she fell in love with Crookedstar, at least, that is my theory!

Brambleberry is my favorite cat in the whole Warriors series!


She was Yellowfang's mentor and a kind, glorious cat. I love her.

Sagewhisker was in fact a medicine cat

She was Yellowfang's apprentice, duh. -Leafwish

She is not a med cat shrs a warrior


Nothing on Mudfur either? I honestly feel he’s one of the best RiverClan med cats. He began a med cat to stop the violence he made when he was a warrior, and after losing his mate.

He was the best RiverClan medicine cat.


There are some cats I really dislike, Flametail's one of them, seriously, does no one care that Russetfur murdered Firestar once too? And they call Lionblaze a murderer?

Poor, poor thing. I feel bad for him -Morningshine

Stop blaming Jayfeather! It was his time to die! I didn’t really love Flametail anyways though.

He was a medicine cat?


He was actually Really cool and he is underrated! He liked Bluestar and every cat in Thunderclan was so glad and happy to have him as medicine cat!

I have loved Featherwhisker from the start. He I said terribly underrated and barely known. I wish head a higher spot on this list. He deserves it

Medicine cat after Goosefeather, and mentor to Spottedleaf. Wise, smart, and witty. Great cat!

Not trying to ship buuttt it seems like featherwisker sure does talk a LOT to Bluefur


I love her name! But she's a queen/warrior not a medicine

Hollyleaf Hollyleaf was one of the rare, strictly loyal cats of ThunderClan. She cherished the warrior code as a kit and came back to her clan in a time of need to fight-- even though she was cast out for killing Ashfur.

She was a medicine cat apprentice for a while. And it's so sad how she sacrifices her life for Ivypool, who never did anything for her!

She wasn't a medicine cat for that long. Plus, she's the worst warrior cat ever! So edgy.

Dies bravely, and was a med cat apprentice although very squeamish.

She is not the worst cat ever! I so mad at that person who said that!


Haunted by the past, the only one that could see the ghosts that lived among the clans, visions of everything that would happen in the future, as well as every prophecy. Sometimes it was a gift, and other times a curse. He carried this burden until death, and never told a soul, just to protect them. Everyone thought he was crazy, and in the end, he did become a little insane, but who can blame him? He also had a vast knowledge of herbs, and was described to be “goofy and different from all the other cats” by Bluekit. He was smart, loyal, wise, kind, and funny! What’s not to love?

I don’t think he was the beast medicine cat. In Bluestars prophecy he seemed crazy. But he was really funny. I made a comic. Goose feather: Everybody we must attack windclan this fresh kill is a bad omen. ( Pinestar leads thunderclan in attack, they loose moonflower dies.) (Goosefeather looks for prophecies in fresh kill pile) ( A few moons later) Swiftbreeze: It’s time Goosefeather goes to the elders den. ( Tigerkit goes in med den and plays) Goosefeather: A get that flea bag away from me.! Featherwhisker: Goosefeather it’s okay... Bluefur: What’s wrong with tigerkit he's just a kit! Goosefeather: That kit was never supposed to be born! ( Bluefur takes tigerkit away assuring him) Goosefeather was right about tiger star.


Goose feather is awesome! It was NOT his fault Moonflower died! He said that Thunderclan should be cautious of Windclan and the WARRIORS suggested battle.

Awesome cat but no offense not very good at prophecies


!Cinderpelt or Spottedleaf than healing at better way is he and smart and nice really is he but dumb he's think People

Dumb but nice I liked him


Oh, I want to be a warrior. No, I'm terrible at that, I want to be a medicine cat. Oh, now StarClan sends me a prophecy. Let's go and find SkyClan and instead bring evil and murderers to the forest and get loads of cats killed like Sandstorm. ALL BECAUSE OF YOU! I think you can tell I think Alderpaw/heart's rubbish!

He figured out a cure for Puddleshine! Such amazing instincts.

I like him he impronised himself in shadowclan for Puddleshine! he is the best he should be no. 1

your mom


I feel sorry for him...

Poor Puddleshine...

Feathertail Feathertail is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series called Warrior Cats. She's a slender, silver-tabby she-cat with sky-blue eyes and a plump tail. She is the daughter of Silverstream and Graystripe, Stormfur's sister and Crowfeather's first love interest. She used to be more.

Its NeonRainbowCat! Anywayz since when stupid Feathertail was a medicine cat? just saying'! Common sense here :T. Sorry I have a really sharp taste of opinion so I don't respect some people's opinions and I rant why. Byeee * leaves and shuts door*

Feathertail is not a medicine cat but she was a great warrior

There are two Feathertail's also.

She's a warrio


Heckity heck I love her. Shes so immature and cheerful, and carried on being a medicine cat even after Micah's death and her kits being taken to all the different clans. Bless her.

The first windclan medicine cat is so sweet and kind. I feel bad for her she has so much sad thing happen to her

She was the first WindClan medicine cat, and found others in the remaining clans

She is the, best medicine cat ever! Maybe second place!
