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.
Maplshade lost EVERYTHING! I don't blame her for ing evil... even though its not right... I mean yeah I'm basicly living in darkness and pain but I don't go killing people and manipulating kits... poor crookedkit/paw/jaw/star... but at least apleshade didn't kill him, greencough didV 27 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
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.
She meant to kill Ashfur. Jayfeather saw her deliberately sneak up on him and bite his throat. What wasn't deliberate was the body being found. - RisingMoon
IF she cared about the code, why did she break it?V 11 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
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
He should be above Hollyleaf :/ He's a really good cat at heart and was shattered by the realization that Squirrelflight didn't care about him. I honestly don't have much to say because it just seems so obvious to me that I have a hard time putting it into actual words! Ashfur is wonderful and deserves a second chance.
Poor Ashfur deserves sooo much more than what he got I mean squirrelflight practically USED HIM to make brambleclaw jealus and THEN he just BREAKS UP WITH HIM of COURSE HE IS ANGRY PS IF HOLLYLEAF 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎 can be forgiven for PURPOSLY KILLING HIM why won’t fans forgive HIM!?V 34 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
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.
He was bullyed and lost control because he was mad on Sock and RubyV 22 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.
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 agree with this. He lost Feathertail, the one he loved. He should be on here!
Who else remembers that he tries to kill himself on the journey?V 4 Comments
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
Lol I hate her
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
She's a piece of FOX DUNG
At least she’s not a spoiled brat unlike *cough* Silverstream, *cough* - SilverstreamSucksV 18 Comments
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
I can't believe she’s on here. You people are blinder than jayfeather(no offense Jayfeather) if you people think Dovewing is a good character. She’s a complete brat.
And, in full offense: why are you alive. seriously you need to dig a hole and suffocate in it if you think Dovewing is an innocent little cinnamon roll whose done nothing wrong.
~SkyLeaf,DustWing(❤️),FlowerFur,SnowPaw,SplashHeart, SwanWillow,LeafWhisker, and FrostPaw.
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
How is he misunderstood? I thought everyone liked him - Blossomfrost
No one ever thought of how HE felt it was always oakheart. He disereves to be on here
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.
He was a very confusing and also very evilV 10 Comments
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!
I have no idea why I'm voting for whatever this is. It sounds like a monster from minecraft crossed with poison ivy.
What have I done with my life...
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= Chickenheart aka COWARD - Blossomfrost
Ravenpaw the wimp. ❤️ - Feaather
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
Haha very funny. Haha not.
Yeah sure, even though he killed, kidnapped and toarcherd kits, he’s still a good guy.
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
She was trying to do the right thing, though she caused a lot of pain... - Blossomfrost
Spottedleaf is awesome! Not misunderstood
Shes cool, I don't think she stalked and she helped various times.
Meh, she was okay...don't see anything to love or hate about her - Blossomfrost
Their live was trash. She’s a bad character this just stalks Firestar. I’m even pretty sure she visited him over 50 times in the The Prophecies Behin arc.
"Hm, should I choose someone I only knew for 5 minutes when she alive? Or my mate whose been by my side my entire life and has loved me? I can’t decide! " - SilverstreamSucks
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!
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.V 7 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’s a great cat. Helpled Firestar on the journey to SkyClan, risking her life for him. - SilverstreamSucksV 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.
Well, I get this, that he’s on this list. He didn’t want to be a Medicen Cat, and some people misunderstand his grumpy temper.V 3 Comments
Don't see how she's misunderstood - Blossomfrost
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 fully, 100% with this. She just wanted to have a normal life until Stormkit fell and broke his jaw. She renamed him Crookedkit so that if he died, it would be CROOKEDKIT, who is not her son, dying, and not her son, Stormkit dying. She did this so she would not feel as much grief. SYPATHY PEOPLE!V 4 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
loveV 3 Comments
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!
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.
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
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
Who the hell would attack a kit rather than an evil cat? Or order your apprentice to do so? Huh? -Firestorm
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 5 Comments
Breezeplet is an great cat to Windclan
Um, yeah. Not talked about much until he trains Ivypool. Nobody really knows that much about him.
He is my favorite evil character. He is my favorite tied with Ivypool. THANKS A LOT TIGERSTAR FOR MAKING HIM EVIL! Not.
I wanted to kill this cat so badly in TNP. He was a complete whiny brat about not being deputy and blaming stuff on Mistyfoot, that I don't know, weren’t her responsibility! - SilverstreamSucks
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!
Goose feather is amazing
He was a very confusing cat to me and never make up his mind.
...what is he doing here? Complete evil people - Blossomfrost
He's just evil
UMM...WHAT? HE IS JUST PLAIN EVIL!
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
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
Why bluestar if you weren't one of my favorites I would kill you
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!
