Most Misunderstood Warrior Cats

Cats from the Erin Hunter books I think are misunderstood.

The Top Ten

1 Mapleshade Mapleshade Mapleshade is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She is a tortoiseshell she-cat with a white tail and mistakenly described as ginger-and-white. She has her own novella and is a villain in the series after she is exiled from ThunderClan, after which she watched her kits die and was abandoned more.

I really feel for her. Her whole life ruined because her clan couldn't take the fact that she had fallen in love with another clan cat. She'd never hurt the clan, and in fact had provided it with kits, but no. They rejected her. Then her kits died, which is a big blow to the heart. And the last straw was her mate, turning her away. You can hardly blame her.

She was going to have the life kits deputy but when her mate was from a different clan and no tom volunteered to be the father she and her kits were cast out the clan she tried to cross the river to her mates clan but her kit drowned and when she made it to the other side of the river her mate cast her out to she had to be a loner when all she did was love -Oakblaze

Mapleshade is my FAVORITE cat, because nobody realized it isn't her fault. I blame her mate. He basically rejected her for nothing!

Poor Mapleshade...I hate Appledouche! - RedTheGremlin

2 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 .

She cracked under the pressure of having two codes broken because of her birth. Yes she threatened leafpool but in the end, she forgave her right before she died. I wished Hollyleaf never died because she had one book that she returned in.

She was never evil, yeah, it might not be right to kill or try to kill, but her birth broke two codes. She didn't mean to kill Ashfur, he fell into the river! She was lied to, hated on and stressed out, she never meant to break any code.

It wasn't an accident. She pounced and bit his throat. I think Ashfur was too extreme, but Hollyleaf wasn't an angel

Poor Hollyleaf. she had her feelings hurt by Squirrelflight, killed ashfurs to protect her secret, struggled with guilt, became severely injured in the tunnels, and was killed by hawk frost. She had a WAAY worse life than stupid MAPLESHADE. Her life was the saddest of ALL warrior cats. Give this poor cat a break. She's mine. Back off.

3 Ashfur

Misunderstood are you kidding me? Squirrelflight never loved him that way and always thought of him as a friend when she broke up with Brambleclaw. When she did become mates again with Brambleclaw Ashfur flipped out and was jealous and when he approached her Squirrelflight she told him she was in love with Brambleclaw but still wanted to be friends with him. But he wouldn't let it go even when she wanted to stay friends and later tried to KILL her and her 'kits' because she wouldn't be mates with him! Thank StarClan he's dead, and I'm willing to bet he only went to StarClan because the Hunters knew fans might stop reading the books if not. He's not misunderstood, he's just insane because someone he loved just wanted to be friends. - MoonShine00

Misunderstood! Ashfur? Ha ha hilarious! Wait, seriously! Some fan girl actually thinks that this lunatic is misunderstood! I understand that he found it to hard to be friends but he could at least try to know...sane! But no, he tried to kill Firestar, Lionblaze in training and all of Squirrelflight's foster kits just because someone just wanted to be friends! I mean, I liked him before the whole love triangle thing but now! I'm surprised Yellowfang stood up for him in StarClan. He loved to much! Seriously! More like he hated to much! Like another crazy cat *cough Tigerstar cough!

#Ashfur is not misunderstood!

I understand how it feels. To be cheated. To be on the lower hand. My ex broke up with me because of this other girl. I FELT like murdering her. - Leaftail

NO! He is so misunderstood! Yeah he went absolutely insane when Squirrelflight told him she loved Brambleclaw but just imagine if that happened to you. You wouldn't just get over it in a minute! Of course Ashfur thought Squirrelflight liked him. Brambleclaw just started being demanding and short-tempered with all the cats including her and it just made her feel like he forgot what they went through. He defended Squirrelflight and tried to protect her even though she didn't want it. He only tried killed her " kits " out of rage! I'm not for Ashflight but seriously, give him a chance.

4 Scourge Scourge Scourge is a villain the Warrior Cats series . He's the leader of BloodClan . He was bullied by his siblings, Socks and Ruby, in the past because he was the smallest out of his kin . One of his most notable features is his collar of dog teeth .

They told him his mom was going to throw him in the river and yeah all that other stuff but still cats true to help but he chose to be evil.

Well, Scourge was mistreated because of his size as a kit. When I read Tigerpaw (later Tigerstar) attacking him I thought that if I had found him by the border I would've been smiley and happy and let him go back, but tell him he couldn't come back. Instead Tigerpaw attacks him. A runt kitten, how unfair is that? It scarred him, it hurt him. It made anger form inside and he wanted to never be bullied again. The only way he could do that is to rise up against other cats. Deep down he has been broken.

Scrouge is one of the most misunderstood cats in warrior history! He was bullied, unwanted and always alone. The only way he could change that was to become evil. And when he formed BloodClan for the first time he finally found some happiness. These cats he lead saw him as him and not just a weak kittypet! Sure he hurt Violet but all cats do something horrible in their lifetime! He may seem like a jerk but on the inside he just wanted to be loved!

#Scrouge is misunderstood

He's my mate, and I believe he was VERY misunderstood as a kit. - RedTheGremlin

5 Crowfeather

The only reason he never seemed to loved Breezepelt was because he was worried he would fail them. He lost the cat who really seemed to care for him and saw what was under his grumpy shell. Then he tried to run away with Leafpool and then he had to back to his Clan where they all probably thought "Crowfeather fell in love with TWO cats from anther Clan and tried to run away? He is so disloyal! " He thought he had to take a mate from his Clan to prove his loyalty, and he was grieving over the fact he lost all he loved! He just wanted a mate and this seemed like the only way at the time. He stayed away from Breezepelt because he doesn't want to fail him like he did with Feathertail and Leafpool.

Umm...WHAT? Crrowdung (feather) is NOT misunderstood! He's just a cheater and code breaker! I mean, 3 she-cats with 4kits!?! I feel bad for them...especially Nightcloud! Curse Leafpool! I feel bad for Nighty-night and Feathery-Heather!

He's not misunderstood. He's just a grump cat

Crowfeather is so misunderstood... how would you like it if your true love died trying to save your life? he was misunderstood in his clan to! he kept having to prove he was a true warrior. he wanted to find true love... when he looked for it, he lost it. then he tried again, but his love was in a different clan. and he kept trying! he looked once more for a cat in his clan and found it! but then he realized... that this is not his true love... I hate how people are saying that he is just grumpy and mean! he just wanted true love! that's why he is grumpy and mean.

6 Dovewing Dovewing Dovewing is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She is part of the Power of Three, and has a sister, Ivypool.

Dovewing is a bit of a Mary Sue, but just look at these haters! She helped and was the missing part of the prophecy! She and Ivypool need more love! - SeeU

Everyone hates her, but she really isn't that bad! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Everyone hates her, but she really isn't that bad! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Uhm, one thing.
Okay, so her eyes have been described as yellow, golden, green, and blue. Blue can't even be possible, because a cat has to have a large amount of white on their pelt to have blue eyes.

Also, another thing-
She was invented because the Erins weren't smart enough to think of a power for Hollybae.

And another-
Complete Mary Sue.

10 Tigerstar Tigerstar Tigerstar is the biggest villain in the Warrior Cats, also the cat that Firestar wants to kill . He has two mates, Goldenflower and Sasha, and four kits, Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, and Hawkfrost . After he dies, he goes to the Dark Forest where he is killed again except this time by Firestar more.

Okay, he's evil, I get that. But don't you think it's just because somebody trained him wrong? Because someone stepped all over him as a kit? Maybe they should have a special edition about Tigerstar.

He really did like bluestar. Fair enough to hate Fireheart/star though. I hate thistleclaw for turning him bad. He would have been attractive if he was good - Leaftail

Why is he misunderstood? I understand him-DAMN POWER-HUNGRY AND BLOODTHIRSTY.

Most evil cats are misunderstood but Tigerstar? No. All he is, is horrible ambition. - Feaather

11 Hawkheart Hawkheart

I hate how people judge him at say, "OH MY GREAT GOOGLY GOSH! HE KILLED MOONFLOWER I HATE HIM SO MUCH POOR MOONFLOWER! " She was destroying his herbs-the herbs that would cure his Clan if they should get sick. Without them, his Clan could die. Moonflower didn't deserve to die, but I don't blame Hawkheart for killing her. - RedTheGremlin

Everyone cats Hawkheart for killing Moonflower when he was just defending his clan. If Moonflower did destroy his herb supplies his whole CLAN would have died from it. - MoonShine00

He's my favourite medicine cat and character in the whole series. He's not evil!

See U NO just NO

12 Squirrelflight

I really didn't get why Brambleclaw/star was so mad at her!

He was mad because he raised these kits with her thinking they were his when she never told him herself

She's a good cat. All she did was help out her sister

She's not misunderstood. She's a good cat

13 Ravenpaw

He's kind of a wimp. He ran away from Tigerstar instead of staying and fighting alongside his clan. He just decided to go be a loner

Although I agree a little bit, he would have been slaughtered if he didn't go. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Thought was cray cray.

Ravenpaw the wimp. ❤️ - Feaather

14 Brokenstar Brokenstar

Haha very funny. Haha not.

15 Sandstorm

She is a super snob who gets offended by everything. I am NOT A HATER and she used to be one of my fave characters until she got offended by everything fireheart did. She acted like a spoiled teen who wanted a rich boyfriend. She's not even a good example. Cinderpelt really loved fireheart. Here's the reason why I say this: Cinderpelt always trusted fireheart, even more than bluestar. Who did she tell her prophecies to? Fireheart. Who did she run to for help? Fireheart. How did sandstorm treat fireheart? " I thought I was your friend! " Boohoo hop I just don't feel bad for her she's not misunderstood she's completely spoiled

Exactly sandstorm and firestar had development while firestar and spotted leaf only new each other for a moon (while still being alive)

Why is she misunderstood? Nothing is wrong with her or her life. She's a great cat

I really hate Sandstorm. There, I said it. Now before you go and hate on me, read my list.
1. She is Firestar's mate, yet she was a bully to him when they were apprentices. Firestar deserves way better. Heck, Cinderpelt would have made a better mate! love Cinderpelt.
2. She's so sarcastic and rude. She is always getting on to Fireheart/star about everything. Chill out!
3. She gets offended too easily, most of the time over stupid things. When Fireheart chose another cat instead of her to mentor Tawnykit, Sandstorm blew her top. What's this jerk's problem? It's Fireheart's decision, not hers. Plus, it's for the good of the Clan.
4. She's spoiled. All she wants is a rich, perfect mate who can do anything for her. If it isn't perfect, she lashes out!
5. She attacks MAPLESHADE. My favorite character! I wish that Mapleshade had killed her!
That's my list, but don't hate me for my honest opinion. - RedTheGremlin

16 Spottedleaf

Spottedleaf is awesome! Not misunderstood

Shes cool, I don't think she stalked and she helped various times.

She's not misunderstood she's cool! 😠


17 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 . He is blind .

Sure, he was very grumpy, but that was because he is blind and didn't want to be a medicine cat in the first place

I hate him. I don't find his comments unny but downright rude.

Jayfeather is probably my second favorite cat. Bluestar is my favorite. - LordDovahkiin

For all the people that hate on jayfeather guess what he’s cool and he’s 😄 funny he be like
Firestar: I’m fine
Jayfeather: your not fine till I say your fine
Firestar: alright *sighs - Maplestar961

18 Rainflower

This one I have to disagree. She started to hate her own son because he slipped and broke his jaw. Which made him mess up his face, but I wouldn't hate my son if he broke his face! She loved Oakheart more than Crookedstar. I screamed "YES! " when she died.

I also hate Rainflower, but it is, unfortunately, a fact that a mother cat will abandon her kitten if she feels that he/she will not survive. - IcetailofWishClan

I don't think there is a single person who likes Rainflower. - RedTheGremlin

I agree! She's a terrible mother, and she doesn't deserve Crookedkit/paw/jaw/star! It wasn't his fault a cookoo cat was chasing him to slippery rocks! I mean, if your kit broke his jaw, would u ignore them for the rest of their life?

19 Mudclaw

Ugh. I would rather have Mudstar than stupid, stinky, rude, snobby, snooty, arrogant, stupid-named Onestar. - RedTheGremlin

He thought he was acting on the will of starclan, I mean try to put yourself in his shoes..Paws... You are deputy and your leader dies, you think you are in charge now, then some warrior says that there the clan leader when you're deputy! Onewhisker couldn't prove to him that Tallstar said you will become leader. Neither Brambleclaw or Firestar. I'm glad he's in starclan, honestly.
