Most Misunderstood Warrior Cats

Cats from the Erin Hunter books I think are misunderstood.

The Top Ten

1 Mapleshade Mapleshade

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!

My most favourite cat! Its not fair that she was punished, and Starclan used visions to make her kill cats then refused to accept her because of it!

2 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

WHAT?!? Misunderstood?

1. Squirrelflight never loved him. And it's not her fault she didn't love him. It's nothing personal, either. She just loved Brambleclaw
2. I understand being upset and holding a grudge, but not trying to kill her "kits".

I think it depends on how you look at it. I mean I think that Squirrelflight was only doing it to make Brambleclaw jealous. I find that it is unfair to Ashfur that Squirrelflight toyed with his feelings, I mean he loved her. But she never really did. I know that doesn't account for his actions but not every cat in the warrior cats world is perfect. The reasoning as to why he attempted to kill her "kits" is that he was reminded of what he could have had with her. But instead he only saw what could have happened and blamed her and her kits for it. But don't you see it is her fault she never loved him. I think that I myself would be torn apart if the cat I loved only pretended to love me just to get back at her ex. Then all of a sudden she breaks up with you and goes back to her ex just because a sibling had a vision. So all in all I think he is misunderstood. - Mkittty

3 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

God, I hate her. - LordDovahkiin

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 .

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.

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.

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

Scourge is actually one of my favorite characters. Go BloodClan! - LordDovahkiin

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

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.

7 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.

Tigerstar is the Hitler of the cat world. But I still liked him. Though I bet he was based off Hitler. - LordDovahkiin

8 Crookedstar

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

Poor CROOKEDstar his mother was a awful cat and so many cats die in his family why mapleshade your so RUDE

No one ever thought of how HE felt it was always oakheart. He disereves to be on here

9 Hawkheart Hawkheart

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!

He killed Bluestar's mother because she was trashing his medicene and he belived it was the right thing to do. He is NOT evil and was actually really nice to poor Yellowfang.

See U NO just NO

10 Millie

She's a piece of FOX DUNG


She obviously didn't give a crap about Blossomfall

Just because she used to be a kittypet doesn't mean you can't be a great and loyal warrior,I'm glad Firestar and Graystripe gave her a chance.

The Contenders

11 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

12 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

13 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

She's misunderstood because she's a little snobby

14 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

15 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

She is NOT MISUNDERSTOOD. She is a parent! She ignored crookedkit and changed his name :( It wasn't crookedkits fault

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?

16 Redtail
17 Nightcloud

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.

18 Hollowflight
19 Breezepelt Breezepelt

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

WHY DO PEOPLE HATE HIM? All he wanted was his father to notice him!

He just wanted attention from his dad but he never got it when he discovered the truth about the 3 he was furious in the battle his side lost he went on with life with half a heart -Oakblaze

Hii it's me again! The one that did Crowfeather! Breezepelt didn't do anything! He would be been just fine if Crowdung hadn't been such a fox-heart! He didn't DERSERVE a terrible cheating, code-breaking father as he was!

20 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw

He was awesome until his love left him. Bluestar should have given him a chance. Poor Thistleclaw.

Who the hell would attack a kit rather than an evil cat? Or order your apprentice to do so? Huh? -Firestorm

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

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.
