Most Misunderstood Warrior CatsCats from the Erin Hunter books I think are misunderstood.
The Top Ten
I get why she can be seen as misunderstood. I get that she had a tough life.
I get that her own clan turned against her, that her own mate turned against her, and that her kits drowned right in front of her eyes.
But I'm honestly shocked by the responses of most of the fans here.
Murdering others as revenge is not the path you should take, just because all of those things happened to you.
It's never acceptable to kill someone else over whatever harm they did to you. (And this is completely different from killing in the name of self-defense, or greater good, etc.)
What most fans are saying here, is that Mapleshade was RIGHT in killing off those cats, because her life was hard.
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.
You have to be kidding me. She broke the warrior code, most likely knowing the consequences of her actions. She, instead of telling her clan which would have most likely been taken as a mistake by them, tells them it is a different DEAD cat. Ravenwing did the absolute right thing for telling the clan leader. For doing the right thing, he ends up getting killed by Mapleshade since ya' know, that's how it works. We shouldn't be praising her and calling her misunderstood. We shouldn't say her clan ruined her life. She did this most likely knowing the consequences and instead of telling the truth, she says the father of her kits is a dead tom. The only reason I pity her is due to the fact Appledusk decided to leave her when she needed him the most. Other than that, she isn't misunderstood.
People really think that she is totally evil, but she did do some bad things. If you think about it she was was super depressed and just wanted revenge for her kits, not to mention that she was hearing voices in her head. Also Appledusk is a big dudu butt headV 43 Comments
Hollyleaf...the warrior code was what structured the basic values of her life, and she leaned heavily on it. When she found out her very existence was breaking the code, she cracked. Revealing her Clan's secrets in a Gathering when ThunderClan had no idea what happened, and killing Ashfur, which was so pointless since she blurted everything out anyway. Ashfur wasn't a good cat, and he deserves to be punished, but Hollyleaf isn't home and dry on the good side either. - Blossomfrost
Totally. Also, just saying Hollyleaf didn't actually kill Ashfur. If you've read warriors, the ultimate guide, on her page it says. 'She struck, he slipped, and when he fell into the stream with blood streaming from the wounds in his throat, she knew he was beyond saving." So there you go, sorry if I spoiled anything. - Hazelfrost
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.
Hollyleaf should be a villain she would be so awesome
You go Hollyleaf
I don't understand why everyone believes Hollyleaf deserved redemption but Ashfur doesn't. Think about it, people: Holly had everything going for her. Her Clan, her family, they loved her. She found out the cats who raised her weren't her real parents... so what? They still cared about her, and so did her real mother! Plus she had her brothers and friends like Cinderheart, and her grandfather Firestar the Clan leader, and the rest of the Clan who supported her! But no, because she was obsessive, she let it get to her so much that she killed a cat, revealed the secret herself, and tried to kill another cat who happened to be her OWN MOTHER. Then she ran away from her problems and hid for like a year before coming back and being given a second chance in spite of everything. What about Ashfur? He had NOTHING. He wasn't close to any cat, not even his own sister or adoptive brother, why? Because they both had mates and families. He thought he could have that too, with Squirrelflight, but ...more
He is very misunderstood. First he was used by a she-cat (Like Bumblestripe) without his feelings being cared about. He really liked Squirrelflight too. So what if he threatened to kill her "kits"? He never did, but all of a sudden fans start hating him because of it. But when Hollyleaf really kills him nobody cares because we can know what she's thinking. He's not really as horrible as everyone thinks he is.
Sorry, this is my opinion. - Pebblepaw
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
Ashfur was my second favorite tom, and even after what he's done, he is still second favorite. First favorite is Graystripe.V 40 Comments
Even the fanbase seems to hate Scourge. It seems like so many people are so against him. People like to say, "Oh too bad, your brother teased you and now you're evil! " No, I'm pretty sure he was ATTACKED and also he was likely going to be abandoned on the street anyway. You can see in the manga that he was kind of forced to have the "ice in his veins" because otherwise he'd be killed. Yes, he was evil. But earlier on, he had to be evil in order to survive.
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
F all those people who say "Oh like I'm related to Scourge! " because it annoys my ears like heck! Anyways, he IS misunderstood. Everyone who says otherwise doesn't really know his purpose. He wanted to be powerful! He wanted to prove anyone who thought he was weak, that he is strong. That's what led to evilness. So that's why I understand him. So don't blame him one damn bit. Sincerely, Fox the Rogue
I feel really sorry for him... - LeafshadeV 29 Comments
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.
Okay, no. He was treated fine, and he had no reason to act the way he did. Nobody treated him badly. Everyone had to put up with him being rude and selfish for NO REASON. His first mate was from a different Clan and died saving him, but why? Then he likes Leafpool, then hates her because they can't live together. Then he uses Nightcloud. He is not misunderstood at all.
Again, my opinion. You can think whatever you want. - Pebblepaw
3 different mates? Come on what is so attractive about him? He's grumpy, rude, selfish, love interests changing in the blink of an eye...don't break your heart over him Leafpool! He deserves NO ONE! - Blossomfrost
I didn't really like him until I read Crowfeather's Trial, but now he's pretty cool. I hope he becomes leader someday... - LeafshadeV 10 Comments
Not gonna lie, I absolutely love Millie, especially sense I read the Manga Greystripe's Adventure, because it gives more development on their relationship. She did really save him, not just from his terrible fever, that probably would of killed him otherwise. But she also saved him emotionally, he was dreaming about Silverstream when he had the fever, and he might not have woken up if Millie hadn't woken him. He was the best thing for him, he needed another cat to love, since almost all his family members where dead. And he did truly love her, even if he does love Silverstream more. And people are hating on her because she spent more time, and payed more attention to Briarlight. But if your child has been paralyzed, you would pay more attention to them, no doubt. And she also has some really good quotes, and even Bramblestar had said that he really had never liked her much, but that he admired her after she said something inspiring (I could not find the quote though) And I admire her ...more - BlueberryCatfish
Poor Millie! Everyone forgets the good things about her and only remembers the one bad thing. As for Silverstream everyone remembers the 3 good things about her and forgets the 4 or 5 bad things!
She is far better than the stuck up brat Silverstream! Stop judging her for what loads of people have explained and proven as nothing wrong! Everyone is following like pathetic sheep but I believe in Millie she is better then Silverstream and has a far more developed relationship with Greystripe
I never liked Silverstream, and when I read Graystripeâ€™s Advebture, I loved the excited and loyal Millie. I was so glad Graystripe had finally gotten over his DEAD mate. But nowâ€"and yes, I know itâ€™s a stupid idea, but stillâ€"it seems like the Erins ruined her to make Silverstreamâ€"who I hate even more nowâ€"look nice.
â€śShe was mean to Blossomfall! 1 and drive her 2 da dark forest! â€ť
While I must admit Millie ignored her kits when that happened, guess what? Blossomfall was an adult. And you know what happens when youâ€™re and adult? You donâ€™t need your parents around you all the time when youâ€™re an adult. While it was wrong for Millie to snap at Blossomfall, I can...relate, actually. Millie must have been terrified when Briarlight was hurt, and I would very well protect Briar if I was Millie.
Oh, and Millie wasnâ€™t Silverstreamâ€™s replacementâ€"one of the authors on the team that writes Warriors agreed to put her coworkerâ€™s cat in the books. She had no idea ...more
Foxheart isn't a tom. It says he is in Bluestar's Prophecy but that's a mistake! The series isn't perfect. It's a she! Read Yellowfang's Secret.
Honestly I feel sorry for her because she has such an awful name lol - Leafshade
I like Foxheart. HE in Bluestar's Prophecy it says Foxheart is a bright ginger TOM! I don't understand why everyone hates him so much!
And just HOW, may I ask, is she misunderstood? She drove poor Yellowfang crazy because she won over Raggedstar! - Blossomfrost
MISUNDERSTOOD? Nobody treated her badly, she just decided to be a bully. Hate her. - PebblepawV 1 Comment
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
What? How? Her sister, maybe, but not her. She has powers, she's a good hunter, and she has two boys hitting on her. - Pebblepaw
I love her, though she isn't my favorite cat (Bluestar is). I was sad when she joined ShadowClan. - LeafshadeV 11 Comments
What is WRONG with Rainflower? And Mapleshade? They have both been cruel in Crookedstar's life but I still hate Maple more because she was pure evil and Rain is not that bad really. But anyways I think Crookedstar's more SAD than misunderstood. I hate Maple, who's with me?
I know he made a promise to mapleshade but he was a kit all kits are a little stupid also he did it because he wanted do be the best warrior
How is he misunderstood? I thought everyone liked him - Blossomfrost
Well, he was kind of misunderstood. He breaks his jaw, and his mother turns her back on him, naming poor Stormkit Crookedkit. Then she starts paying attention to only Oakheart. That must have been really sad. But every one liked him. However, when Rainflower died, falling into a creek, and Crookedjaw didnâ€™t save her, Oakheart blamed him for her death, though it was Mapleshade who knocked him away.
Smokeshade of PineClan
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
He was a big sweetie. - Pebblepaw
I love him! I only just read his death- so sad! - Leafshade
GOO RAVEN PAW! Hi,Iâ€™m Ravenpaw secret sister, crow tail! I look just like him,but with bright blueish green eyes!V 4 Comments
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
I LOVE HER! If I were a warrior cat character, I would be her! - LeafshadeV 1 Comment
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.
Ugh, I hate him! He lured the dogs to ThunderClan which ended up with Bluestar my favorite cat, drowning when fighting them! - LeafshadeV 11 Comments
Haha yeah...NO not funny. Even though Yellowfang tried to befriend him when he was a lonely kit he was arrogant and power-hungry. What's there to misunderstand? - Blossomfrost
He was bullied. - Pebblepaw
Haha very funny. Haha not.
Yeah sure, even though he killed, kidnapped and toarcherd kits, heâ€™s still a good guy.
Spottedleaf is awesome! Not misunderstood
I love her- but I don't think she's misunderstood- no offense - Leafshade
Shes cool, I don't think she stalked and she helped various times.
She IS misunderstood! WHY do people hate her? What has she done wrong? I dislike the ship SpottedXFire but that does not mean Spottedleaf has killed any cats and she's never done ANYTHING bad. why all the hate?V 3 Comments
He was awesome until his love left him. Bluestar should have given him a chance. Poor Thistleclaw.
He was never good or misunderstood. He's just evil. He was evil before snowfur died. He taught Tigerstar to be bad which led to so many lives being lost
I honestly hate him, for he was super evil from the Dark Forest, but I don't understand what made him go there really... - Leafshade
He never did anything that's actually bad. Sure he made Tigerstar kind of who he is, but that's just finger pointing. He was over confronting on border oatrols (MUDFUR). Mudfurs in star man and he was all thistleclaw was and more. Let's not forget about ash fur, who tried to kill fire stars daughter and 2/3 of the cats who saved all the clans. Thistleclaw was just mean spirited, and had a regard to thunderclap that he could protect it with tooth and claw. Out of all dark forest cats, this guy is the one who should be in starclan. Oh and did I mention how bluefur thought he was a threat before he did anything? She hated him for nothing. (Or because he was with her sister and she wa biased) Anyway, a cat who BROKE THE WARRIOR CODE is viewed as better than a cat who did nothing to break the rules WHATSOEVER.V 6 Comments
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
Almost everyone, including me, likes him...why is he in the top 10? - Blossomfrost
I hate him. I don't find his comments unny but downright rude.
MY SECOND FAVORITE CAT I LOVE YOU JAYFEATHER - LeafshadeV 4 Comments
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
Hawkheart may have killed Moonflower but he's not a bad cat. He killed her to protect his herbs because Windclan needed them. He's very nice to Yellowfang in Yellowfang's Secret. He's overall a good cat who is loyal to his clan.
HE KILLED MOONFLOWER AND HE IS A MEDICIE CAT I HATE HIM ALMOST AS MUCH AS SOL AND RAINFLOWER! - LeafshadeV 8 Comments
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
She was a stuck up, selfish cat who wailed who didn't deserve Firestar...the Hunters make her such a hero in A Vision of Shadows - BlossomfrostV 5 Comments
Why does everyone hate on him? That's my question. He was never evil, he was blamed for everything. He just wanted attention, and his father to approve of him, but Crowfeather was to scared of failing them, so he pretended he and his mother never existed. He only attacked Jayfeather because he wanted some attention, people may see him as attention seeking, but he was broken.
OKAY! FANS, LISTEN TO ME! So what if Breezepelt missed Crowfeather? Does that give him right to attack Jayfeather (blind medicine cat)? To drown a queen just for the sake of killing? Then tell me-. -Firestorm
Look here, Breezepelt wasn't evil. He was broken. If you don't understand how horrible his childhood was, watch the "This is Gospel" map. He was rejected by his father, his parents constantly fought, most of his clan hated him. Cut the poor cat some slack.
WHY DO PEOPLE HATE HIM? All he wanted was his father to notice him!V 2 Comments
Don't see how she's misunderstood - Blossomfrost
I have to say, when I first read Crookedstar's Promise, I despised her with all my heart. But after watching a theory by Bright Guardian Akira on her reasons for her negligence, which actually makes A LOT of sense, I have slightly changed my mind. In fact, I think she is a very interesting character, she has a lack of background being shown, yet she manages to make us feel like she has lots of character development, even if it makes us hate her. And my heart softened just a bit more when I spent more time thinking about how she is the grandmother of Silverstream, and the great grandmother of Feathertail, two of my favorite characters, and they look a lot like Rainflower also. I also never saw her as an terrible abuser, I think negligence and abuse are two often different things, which is just the case for her. She did not verbally or physically abuse him, it was the lack of interaction between Rainflower and Crookedkit that led to emotional abuse. - BlueberryCatfish
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
MISUNDERSTOOD?!? SAY WAAA?!?!?! This is a joke right if not, uh... *Thinking of a good burn* DIE CROOKEDSTAR HATERS!V 6 Comments
She's one of my favorite cats. She's very misunderstood. Her sister made a bigger difference than her. Ivypool felt left out
Ivypool is misunderstood! So is Dovewing! These cats need more love! Dovewing was part of the prophecy and Ivypool helped as if her life depended on it, which, IT DID! - SeeU
I love her. She just didn't like the fact that her sister mattered more than her
I LOVE THIS PIECE OF FUR! -FirestormV 3 Comments
Hmm how exactly is he not understood...I don't see it - Blossomfrost
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.
There's practically nothing about to him to even firm an opinion about whether you like him or not...why is he here? - Blossomfrost
I love her but she had a life of tragedy.
Me too. I love her so much.
Her life was so sad

Goose feather is amazing
Nightcloud is really misunderstood, everyone hates her just because they love Feathertail or Leafpool! I totally ship LeafxCrow but Nightcloud doesn't deserve all this hate. The cat she loved doesn't love her back and he used her!
YES thank you finally someone understands it's not nightclouds fault I mean crowfeather only been with her because he wanted his clan to trust him but I totally ship FEATHERXCROW they were beautiful together ps crowfeather heart will never truly be restored because he loved feathertail and she died poor crowfeather.
Poor Blossomfall. It wasn't Briarlight's fault she was totally favoured, but Millie didn't care about Blossom at all. Blossomfall wanted to help her clan, but she thought joining the dark forest would make Millie love her and IT WASN'T HER FAULT.
Poor Blosomfall. MILLIE SUCKS!
Um, Silverstreamsucks, I think YOU suck by the way your acting. Briarlight got ALL the attention. I like Briarlight and I bet everyone else who voted this to but what if your sibling got hurt and YOU got hurt but your mom would just ignore not caring that you got injured. that's why we feel bad for Blossomfall. So, cringy Millie lover, BACK OFF!
I would be an adult, and let my mother care for my injured sister. - SilverstreamSucks
WHAT IN THE NAME OF STARCLAN SILVERSTREAMSUCKS!?!? YOU POSTED THE SAME COMMENT 10 FLIPPEN' TIMES. WHAT DID BLOSSOM FALL DO TO YOU CRINGEY MILLIE LOVER? HUH!?!?!? I mean really we get it already you don't got to keep saying it over and over and over and over again. I'm going to say this again because I made a comment didn't exactly get posted. Silverstream sucks you suck by the way your acting acting like a stupid child who doesn't know what to do when you're reading a book. Who died and made you the queen of bossiness and I'm done here. So bye-bye cringy Millie lover
Breezeplet is an great cat to Windclan
He is my favorite evil character. He is my favorite tied with Ivypool. THANKS A LOT TIGERSTAR FOR MAKING HIM EVIL! Not.
Um, yeah. Not talked about much until he trains Ivypool. Nobody really knows that much about him.
This cat was just trying to be as trustworthy and loyal to his best friend Tigerstar I know that he fed sorrelkit deathberries I have no idea why hedid that -Oakblaze
He was a very confusing cat to me and never make up his mind.
Twilightstar is my OC and leader of sunclan when her mate lightclaw dies saving Katfang from a tree clan patrol she exiles Katfang for â€ś killing lightclaw â€ś but at the end of the story she forgives Katfang, she is a great character and I have had her in my storyâ€™s for years please vote for her or like this comment please if u want me to post my storyâ€™s on fan fiction.net or just, VOTE FOR HER!
...what is he doing here? Complete evil people - Blossomfrost
He's just evil
UMM...WHAT? HE IS JUST PLAIN EVIL!
He is evil, nothingâ€™ misunderstood about him. - Camaro6V 1 Comment
Why bluestar if you weren't one of my favorites I would kill you
I know we're talking about Swiftpaw but I just have to say that I hate Bluestar. She indirectly led him to his death! - Blossomfrost
I Hate you bluestar
Thanxx bluestar for killing LONGTAIL JR I AM A SPYCHOPATH BUT I LIKE LONGTAIL SO THANXX AGAIN CRAZYSTARV 1 Comment
She is one of the worst cats in the history of Warriors! Seriously she wrapped poor Thunder around her pretty little paw, then betrayed him. If that was all some people would be arguing for her, saying One Eye was her father. But that isn't all! She went off and mated Clear Sky if all cats! I wish I could kill those two - Blossomfrost
I haate this she-cat till the bone and soul! Poor Thunder! He lived her and guess what? She went for a grandpa, terrible, cheating, (3mates really? ) Grumpy, obsessed, addict, Fox-heart, rabbit-brain, and IDIOT, CLEAR SKY (pfft pfft aag I hate his name! ) DIE STAR, THUNDER LOVED U, YOU HEART-BREAKER!
She betrayed Thunder, but I feel like she was so scared of One-eye that she betrayed him. I hope Thunder forgives her in Forest Divided - Catsarah123
Mate: Clear Sky
Son: Tiny Branch
Daughters: Flower Foot, Dew Petal
Father: One Eye
Clan: Sky Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan
I hate her...she was a coward who ran away from her Clan who was still smarting from the wounds Tigerstar inflicted upon them and didn't brave it out like Bramblestar. ROWANCKAW WHAT DID YOU EVER SEE IN HER?! - Blossomfrost
Only ran away cause of Smallear
Also gave up her dreams
Spiderleg may be a bad father and all, but come on, he really cares! It's not like he's evil!
Yeah he was a horrid father...but not exactly the next Tigerstar or anything like that - Blossomfrost
I feel bad for her. She didn't know Tigerstar was evil, so why does everyone hate on her? Yes, she wasn't brave enough to stand up for Stonefur, but she didn't have a choice and no one else stood up for him either. It wasn't her fault!
