Most Misunderstood Warrior CatsCats from the Erin Hunter books I think are misunderstood.
The Top Ten
Why does Mapleshade go to the Dark Forest and Clear Sky go to StarClan? Clear Sky tried to murder his own littermate, actually murdered a cat who he had traveled with from the mountain, cast out his own brother after forcing him to climb trees quickly and then accidentally falling out of one of them, created borders that he killed other cats over because they were living in the space he decided to expand his borders into, was a complete jerk to Falling Feather, rejected his helpless son after driving away his mother, rejecting him again after he dared question his leadership tactics, ordered Frost to be left in the forest to die because HE wasn't treating the wounds from anything, and kept Moth Flight hostage after she tried to keep his kit from dying because he wanted to provoke Wind Runner. And Ashfur gets to go to StarClan for doing almost the exact same thing as Mapleshade? Why?
YES! I'm so glad Mapleshade is first. To make you understand, I'll do a thing that compares Mapleshade to Bluestar.
1. Mapleshade fell in love with Riverclan warrior, same as Bluestar
2. Someone found out about Mapleshade and her forbidden love while Bluestar lied to her whole entire clan about the kits thing.
3. Bluestar had one kit die when all of Mapleshade's kits died.
4. Bluestar became leader and Mapleshade went to the dark forest.
5. Mapleshade wants revenge when Bluestar is enjoying her easy life.
6. Mapleshade fails to get revenge and Bluestar is sunning herself on the highrock.
Now you see why Mapleshade is misunderstood?
By "misunderstood", you must mean 'treated like a goddess by most of the fandom despite the awful things she did". - RoseWeasley
She is the best she didn't exactly deserve all she got she has a fairly sad story I don't like the leader who exiled her because she mated a cat from a different clan like graystripe silverstream leafpool crowfeather and many others no offense to those cats I love them but I think mapleshade deserved to stay in their clan like them74 Comments
Hollyleaf was a great character! The clans misunderstood her! She is super loyal
Hollyleaf is a good cat. She didn't murder Ashfur, she was defending herself, and in a bad place where he fell into a river. She is a cat that we should try to follow, follow the law in our case. - Sunshineheart
She is SO loyal. Even though she killed Ashfur she did it for good reason. YOU ROCK HOLLYLEAF!22 Comments
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
For the record, Mapleshade is pure evil with an ugly heart, and Hollyleaf is cold, arrogant, and selfish (if Ashfur deserves the Dark Forest, then she certainly does too! )
Ashfur is misunderstood. He was seriously hurt and didn't deserve anything that happened to him. He deserves happiness...
Ashfur was a good cat until Squirrelflight started flirting around him. Though he made a very bad decision, I still believed he is the most misunderstood cat. I hope he makes things right in Starclan.
I HATE ashfur55 Comments
SCOURGE! Definitely should be first or second. Everyone hates him cause he killed Firestar and some other cats but this is why he is here isn't it. YOU LOT JUDGED HIM TOO QUICKLY. He is a good leader. He only wanted the best for BloodClan. He was a good brother for helping his sibling even after the abused him when he was a kit. And guys, he is handsome. Just Saying'
He is amazing! He killed tigerstar! *yells out window* scourge is amazing for murdering tigerstar!
I love him
He is weird BUT not evil. He helped cats from a dog that left there food scarcer than it already was. He also helped them by driving out some rogues43 Comments
I LOVE Crowfeather. I was him for Halloween.
You know why I voted? Because he's so misunderstood that I don't understand him.
Crowfeather is so misunderstood ( like dovewing). poor nightcloud, she had to suffer - Silverleaf
Crowfeather is one of my favorite characters, just like Dovewing (My favorite) they are misunderstood, It's not his fault that Breezepelt is evil!17 Comments
People hate Millie because she replaced Silverstream but Millie is a good cat, Silverstream allowed Graystripe to be mates with Millie and they both loved each other, it is sad that people hate Millie for falling love with Graystripe
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
I really like miller for some reason.. - Murphypaw
Ughughughughughh. WHY. DO. PEOPLE. FEEL. BAD. FOR. THIS. BRAT. listen, I'm not a fan of Silverstream, but at least SHE would have listened to each of her kits problems and not wail over ONE. COME ON MILLIE. YOU HAVE TWO OTHER CHILDREN.31 Comments
Dovewing is an amazing character in my opinion. People call her a mary sue even though she has so many flaws, it's a bit confusing. She is sweet and I loved reading her point of view. And after she lost her powers she was scared, I mean, she had the powers her entire life, imagine if you were her. You would freak out as well. So what if she doesn't like Bumblestripe, there are so many reasons to dislike Bumble. Bumblestripe took out all his anger on Dove and would do anything for them to be together. I am so glad that Dovewing left him for Tigerheart. Though I do have to agree that their love was a bit rushed. "She stalked Tigerheart! " She loved him, why not use her powers to make sure her lover is safe? Is that so wrong?! "She broke the warrior code! " So did Firestar, Leafpool, Yellowfang, JAYFEATHER, and almost every single cat in the Clans! "She named one of her kits Shadowkit! " Who cares?!
Dovewing is not a Mary Sue. Everyone thinks that she is. Ivypool is the Mary Sue here
It's so sad how she gets hated. She's perfectly good. She has so many flaws and is so selfless. She doesn't want powers. She wants to be like her sister. Dovewing is my favorite charcter and here are your chances of changing it: 0. NOT EVEN IF YOU GAVE ME COOKIES
Dovewing should be number 1! She is one an amazing cat.
1). She is not a mary-sue, she has many flaws.
2). She is so sweet and kind and how she joins Shadowclan just to be with Tigerheart really shows something.
3). This is my opinion of the Bumblestripe business, you can't change who you love, you can self-improve but you can't change who you love! Then Bumblestripe is practically forcing Dovewing to be with him! It's not fair!
Um how she misunderstood? - Silverleaf
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
She is misunderstood HOW exactly? She is practically a yandere, except not so much killing.
MISUNDERSTOOD? Nobody treated her badly, she just decided to be a bully. Hate her. - Pebblepaw3 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 totally AGREE guys, LOL - Falconstorm
Okay, okay. He was treated very badly, but really he wasn't a bad cat. - Pebblepaw
How is he misunderstood? I thought everyone liked him - Blossomfrost4 Comments
He's a good friend to Barley
I love him! I only just read his death- so sad! - Leafshade
He was a big sweetie. - Pebblepaw
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_StormClan5 Comments
I LOVE HER! If I were a warrior cat character, I would be her! - Leafshade
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 was trying to do the right thing, though she caused a lot of pain... - Blossomfrost2 Comments
Tigerstar IS evil, yes, but not as evil as people think. When he was a kit, a Shadowclan patrol saved him from a fox, so he said that one day he would help Shadowclan. He had at least a little but of a right to kill Redtail, because he saved Redtail from a hawk and Redtail said he owed his life to Tigerstar (read Redtail's Debt). I'm not saying he isn't evil, but he doesn't deserve all of what people say about him.
Ugh, I hate him! He lured the dogs to ThunderClan which ended up with Bluestar my favorite cat, drowning when fighting them! - Leafshade
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 - Leaftail12 Comments
How is he misunderstood he KILLED TO MANY CATS
Brokenstar? More like HITLERSTAR - Nightkillo
yeah - Silverleaf
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? - Blossomfrost4 Comments
I don't think she is misunderstanding stood! she is my favorite medicine cat!
I love her- but I don't think she's misunderstood- no offense - Leafshade
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?
Spottedleaf is awesome! Not misunderstood5 Comments
Breezepelt is meh, to be honest - Swiftfrost
I actually feel kind of bad for Breezepelt. I know, Stupid Crowfeather, that you love Leafpool, and not Nightcloud, but she certainly loves you, so don't take it out on poor Breezepelt. Sure, he lived a sheltered life, and it could have been so much better if Crowfeather hadn't ruined it.
It was sooo hard to pick a cat from this list between Thistleclaw, Crowfeather, Ivypool, Goosefeather, and Clear Sky. But I finally have to choose Breezepelt. I admit that I'm not fully caught up with the last books from Vision of Shadows so there might be something that he does that will make me feel differently, but after reading Crowfeather's Trial, I grew a knew understanding of the cat I used to hate. Cause he does bad stuff and all but he only does that stuff because of his messed up parental situation. He feels rejected by his father and he feels jealous of Jayfeather and Lionblaze for getting more attention from Crowfeather. This is why I think Breezepelt is the most misunderstood cat. - Falconflight01
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.8 Comments
People think he's evil, but he's really not.
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 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 lost7 Comments
He's not a brat, he's just struggling. -Bright Guardian Akira - RoseWeasley
MY SECOND FAVORITE CAT I LOVE YOU JAYFEATHER - Leafshade
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? - Blossomfrost5 Comments
Herbs are essential for the being of the clan and it can take a while to refill a whole stack. Without herbs clan cats could die. Hawkheart is a medicine cat. He only has basic fighting skills and thought he could have tried to put up a fight to Moonflower, he would have likely lost the fight. He couldn't do anything to stop her other than killing her.
How in starclan is he here... ugh moonbutt
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. - MoonShine0010 Comments
22?!?! SHE IS WAY MORE MISUNDERSTOOD THAN MUST OF THE CATS ABOVE HER. People misunderstand her a lot when they read about her a first, but she really just needed some love! Dovewing was COMPLAINING that she had a POWER FROM STARCLAN while Ivypool RISKED HER LIFE to save ALL OF THE CLANS. How many Clans did Dumbwing help? 0! She only helped her mary-sue self.
sorry, I'm REALLY angry Dumbwing is higher than Ivypool...
I love her. the idea of a jealous sister works so well with the plot of I-forgot-which-series. She should be WAAY up there. Dovewing is so petty and privileged and yet she's NUMBER 8! people obviously have no idea what the word misunderstood means. SHE LITTERLY RISKS HER LIFE EVER NIGHT TO HELP HER CLAN WHILE DOVEWING CAN HEAR! I CAN HEAR, YOU CAN HEAR! dovewing is complaining about being favored by Starclan, the literal al-mighty-being of the wc series.
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! - SeeU6 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
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 - Blossomfrost
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 cat5 Comments
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
She makes my think of Britney Spears my pregogation SO SHE is cool but don’t hurt crookedstar any more PLEASE but they made up in starclan and back with shell heart
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. - IcetailofWishClan6 Comments
Don't see how she's misunderstood - Blossomfrost
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
So unfair how he's cursed and tiger stars not! >:(
Goose feather is amazing
Everyone hates her for having kits but everyone loves ferncloud for having kits - Puppytart
Her life was so sad
I love her but she had a life of tragedy.4 Comments
YES! If you think Leafpool had it hard, look at Nightcloud!
1- We don't know where she came from, she might have been abused!
2-Crowfeather USED her! He didn't care about her one bit!
3-All of her kits but Breezepelt died.
4- Breezepelt became a monster, and he was her only kit that lived!
Poor Nighty :( - Swiftfrost
I feel bad for her. Crowfeather’s stupid decisions shouldn’t have to ruin everything for her - Puppytart
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
The name doesn't sound right
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
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.
He was a very confusing cat to me and never make up his mind.
Ok for one...Katfang? I'm not hating but... really? Also no offense but I think you should post your OC's somewhere else I say this with love. I just think that others shouldn't have to go through the confusion on why people are posting their OC's on a site like this. Thanks for noticing this and have a great day! ^-^
Twilightstar is my OC and leader of sunclan when her mate lightclaw dies saving Katfang from a tree clan patrol she exiles Katfang for “ killing lightclaw “ but at the end of the story she forgives Katfang, she is a great character and I have had her in my story’s for years please vote for her or like this comment please if u want me to post my story’s on fan fiction.net or just, VOTE FOR HER!
Lol who is this
How dare you Blossomfrost! She wasn't a coward! And in the end she stayed loyal to shadowclan all the way through! Rowanclaw actually loved her for who she is! She is the best!
I think Tawnypelt is amazing
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
He had a mate and had a kit! He actuley LOVED his mate and kit! YES he IS MISUNDERSTOOD!
He is evil, nothing’ misunderstood about him. - Camaro6
...what is he doing here? Complete evil people - Blossomfrost
He's just evil2 Comments
He didn't deserve to go. He just wanted to prove himself
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 bluestar2 Comments
Mate: Clear Sky
Son: Tiny Branch
Daughters: Flower Foot, Dew Petal
Father: One Eye
Clan: Sky Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan
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 - Catsarah1232 Comments
She had a permanetly damaged leg and braved through it all! And she kept degrading herself because of the bad leg.
Also gave up her dreams
Yeah he was a horrid father...but not exactly the next Tigerstar or anything like that - Blossomfrost
Spiderleg may be a bad father and all, but come on, he really cares! It's not like he's evil!
She isn't rude or crabby shes just afraid of being tricked again like how tigerclaw/star tricked her so he could gain control of HER clan!
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!
