Best Medicine Cats (Warrior Cats)


The Top Ten

1 Leafpool 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

Leafpool had to be at the top. She had to make such hard choices, sometimes they were wrong, but in the end she made the best one.

Leafpool is the best!

Leafpool definitely deserves her spot here. I love Yellowfang and Jayfeather but Leafpool was so full of character and so loving and such a beautiful cat. And you are hearing thiss from a person who basically thinks Scourge should just rule the whole world. SO THIS IS SPECIAL OK?

Leaf pool is awesome she is very soft spoken and kind

2 Cinderpelt 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.

She is one though cat! She also knows all the herbs!

She a bright ball of positivity, adapting to her medicine cat life as soon as she becomes one

She is always full of hope even with her leg and she also died serving her clan

She was the best medicine cat! She was so nice, intelligent, and calm! I loved her so much!

3 Jayfeather 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.

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

Yes he is a charater with great development from his annoying past into a wise medicine cat, he is my second all time favorite (first is Dovewing)

This little grouchy furball is the best thing that has ever happened to this book series. - Silver-Moon

"Jayfeather should be on the top of this list after all Leafpool did stop being a medicine cat after everyone found out about her kits she left Jayfeather all alone to do it and then she just walts back in that bugs me so much, Jayfeather didn't even want to be a medicine cat Starclan basically forced him to be one ""Poor him"" and then their was when he tried to save Flametail but nope he was accused of killing him the poor kitty I find his rudeness a great part of the books it made them intresting and none of the basic same personalites without Jayfeather I probably would've stopped reading he should be #1 cause he's the best med cat of them all"

4 Yellowfang 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.

My fave she died serving her clan I like that! Shes also super sarcastic SHE SHOULD be #1!

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

Yellowfang is amazing and my favorite charter ever!

Yellowfang may have killed her son, but she did the thing that was best for her clan-and that's what she any loyal cat would do in their right mind. (I mean, unless their son ISN'T a crazy insane cat that works kits so hard they die, and sends Riverclan into exile... but she did what she had to to protect her clan.

5 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

She is SO pretty and don't forget that she DIED SAVING KITS!


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 nice to Firestar (paw) hellooo

6 Littlecloud

He's a amazing medicine cat, Spottedleaf doesn't really deserve to be up, since she likes little kids aha-

My good short son

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.

7 Runningnose

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. - Frogjaw1996

8 Willowshine


9 Barkface

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 - Mesmerize

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

He never really has much of a personality - Leafshade

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

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.

GO BRAMBLEBERRY - sydneyhelget

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.


The Contenders

11 Mothwing Mothwing

She is awesome!

(she's my bae )

How can she be a good medicine cat when she dosen't believe in Starclan? - spottedleafpool

She should be higher up the list, I really like the idea of a medicine catthat doesn't believe is starclan!

12 Hollyleaf 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.

EH! she was a med cat 4 only, like, a moon. she sucked at med, catting? - sydneyhelget

Yeah she was more of a warrior type great cat though - Leafshade

She was a medicine cat for a little while - Softleaf

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

13 Sagewhisker

Sagewhisker was in fact a medicine cat - Ravin101

She is not a med cat shrs a warrior - Leafshade

14 Echosong

So swanky used to be a kittypet best skyclan medicine cat

15 Mudfur

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. - Frogjaw1996

16 Mosspelt

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

17 Goosefeather Goosefeather

go him!

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 - Leafshade


18 Flametail Flametail

He was awesome so sad when he drowned he deserved to be medicine cat longer TES he's MEDICINE CAT HOW WOULD BE A WARRIOR he's ALWAYS BEEN MEDICINE CAT - Leafshade

He was a medicine cat? - WarriorFlameFur

19 Featherwhisker Featherwhisker

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

He's cool he secretly hunts SPOILERS - Leafshade

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

20 Feathertail Feathertail

She's a warrio - Leafshade

There are two Feathertail's also.

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*

21 Alderpaw

Great cat

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

Alderheart is the BEST he when on a quest as a new apprentice and Impresed Jayfeather and Yellowfang. ALDERHEART!

22 Hawkheart Hawkheart

It's not his fault he killed Moonflower(Well, I guess it is...), but she was trying to protect his clan. I mean, if you were a medicine cat and another cat broke into your den and destroyed all the herbs, wouldn't you be mad as well? True, he shouldn't have killed, but still

I like Hawkheart.

I hate him in bluestars prophacy but in goosefeather curse so bad he isn't so bad but I don't agree with him being a good medicine cat sorry

No way! he killed Moonflower!

23 Mothflight

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.

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

This should be 1#!
Shes BETTER than Leafpool! - SilentShadow

24 Kestrelflight

Dumb but nice I liked him - Leafshade

25 Pebbleheart

He was like the first medicine cat ever so definitely deserves better

Pebble heart should be higher on the list, he was an amazing medicine cat

26 Fidgetpaw

Fidgetflake from SkyClan - DJPug

Who? - Leafshade

27 Rushpelt

Not a med cat (since no one else is saying it) - Frogjaw1996

He was NOT a medicine cat he was the leader

He’s not medicine but he is cool 😎

Also not a thing - Frogjaw1996

39 Dappled Pelt
