Top Ten Reasons Why Dovewing is Overhated

Dovewing isn't my favorite cat, but I don't get why so many people hate her. I like Ivypool better, but Dovewing is great also.

The Top Ten

1 She cared for her sister

Dovewing is my favorite character oh by the way I hate Ivypool

This is one of the only reasons why I’m ok with Dovewing to be honest

Sometimes she does but other times she doesn't. - IceSnake

She DOES, all the time and unconditionally. - Firemist

2 She helped in the battle against the Dark Forest

Along with every other loyal Clan cat...honestly, that doesn't mean much. - Scarletfall

The prophecy was kind of a joke. They didn't really do anything great enough to be passed down for 20 years. - RisingMoon

So? Every other loyal Clan cat did the same thing? - IceSnake

Dovewing warned the Clan cats when the Dark Forest cats were coming. - Oliveleaf

3 She fulfilled the prophecy

I saw an Animal Jammer called Dovewingwarriors. - Firemist

So did Jayfeather and Lionblaze... - IceSnake

The prophecy was kind of a joke. It didn't do enough to have supposedly been passed down for generations. Not that Dovewing was bad, Dovewing is awesome! - RisingMoon


And anyway, the prophecy is so overrated. - Scarletfall

4 She taught Tigerheart to follow the Warrior code

She taught Tigerheart how to follow the Warrior Code when she broke it herself. REALLY?!

He learned that through his Clan first though. - IceSnake

It's not up to Dovewing to get cats to follow the warrior code - Murphypaw

5 She refilled the lake

Along with the other Clan cats who went on the journey. - IceSnake

She HELPED refill the lake. - Scarletfall

6 She saved Icecloud

Because they're clanmates and she's been saved by other cats as well. - IceSnake

Um I didn't see this one on the list so: Sorreltail was outside the camp giving birth in the middle of the night and Dovewing heard her crying for help do without Dovewing Sorreltail and her kits might've died right then. Sorry I don't remember exactly which book that was in but I think either the 4th, 5th, or 6th book in omen of the stars ;-)

7 She brought unity in between the Clans

So did the other three and Firestar. - IceSnake

She HELPED. Can't leave out Jayfeather and Lionblaze and Firestar. - Scarletfall

8 She warned the Clan about the falling tree


But Briarlight was still crippled. And Longtail still died.

If I'm being honest, though, that was Mousefur's fault. - Scarletfall

Yup. And sadly Briarlight was crippled and Longtail died. - IceSnake

9 She was humble

More like she couldn't follow the warrior code even if the Clans were in danger and she didn't learn the first time. - IceSnake

I wouldn't describe her as humble... - Scarletfall


She is the opposite of humble... Honestly she’s a brat

10 She chose to be Bumblestripe's mate

She doesn't get together with him. They broke things off after Dovewing's Silence. - IceSnake

This is a reason TO hate her. HONESTLY! Dovewing NEVER loved him, and it was unfair of her to lead him on like that! Oh my StarClan Dovewing! Just tell him you don't like him like that and be DONE with it! I was so relieved when they broke up! - Scarletfall

Great StarClan, people! She never even loved Bumblestripe! The only reason that she broke up with him is that she knew it was wrong to be his mate when she still had feelings for Tigerheart. SHE NEVER LOVED HIM! Ivypool's eyes widened with surprise. "Oh, that's terrific! " she exclaimed. "He's really nice. Are you two going to be mates? "

"That's the last thing on my mind! " Dovewing twitched her tail irritably. "It was just a walk. It was fun, but no big deal."

Her sister gave her a poke in the side. "The two of you would have the cutest kits together! " - The Forgotten Warrior, page 110

No one things of poor Dovewing these days...And for the record haters, She's a good mate!

The Contenders

11 She replaced Hollyleaf

Hollyleaf is my least favorite character. I don't understand why people like her.

She obsessed over the Warrior Code, even though she broke it three times, and yet she blamed Leafpool for breaking it. That's being a hypocrite.

Maybe you can excuse that because she apologized in the end, but that doesn't change the fact that she killed someone. She directly killed Ashfur and lied about it. For what reason? None, because she told the secret she was going to hide by killing Ashfur. - RisingMoon

Sure, holly leaf made a lot A LOT of mistakes and bad choices but she redeemed herself in the last battle but I’m NOT that mad she was replaced

YEESSS HOLLYLEAF SUCKS! seriously, in one of the power of three books, the dark river I think, she scolds Lionpaw for meeting Heatherpaw, then IMMEDIATELY runs across the lake to check on her friend in riverclan! Also, she’s so plain, obsessed with the code, always, “The code says YOU can't! ” One more thing, people say Lionblaze is boring? Have you met Hollyleaf? Get it straight.

12 She is the worst character ever

NUMBER 14! I CHOOSE YOU! (yes I like pokemon too)

13 She reached out her senses and told the clans what they were doing

She reached out her scences and finnaly got to the darkforest and the clans demanded to Know what cats where there but she figured they would turn out loyal which some did *cough* "not breezepelt". ~ Ledgandstar of LedgandClan ^.^ don't make fun of My name please... Thank You

14 She cares for her Clan and her family.
15 Dovewing and Tigerstar(hart) had the cutest kits in river of fire.
16 She Has No Character Development
