Top Ten Saddest Warrior Cat Deaths


The Top Ten

1 Bluestar Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan

Bluestar was an amazing cat, one that didn't deserve to be killed. She taught Firestar the ways of the Clan and showed him how to show mercy while still doing what's best for his Clan. Never once did Bluestar put herself before her Clan. Just look at her kits who didn't know her as their own mother until the last minute, or how she died to protect Firestar from the evil wolf pack. Sure, Bluestar had her insane spell, but she still did more for the Clan than any other leader ThunderClan could ever have could ever do. I agree that Firestar was a phenomenal leader, but no cat can show more loyalty and compassion than Bluestar.

Bluestar protected her Clan well,
Even up 'til the moment she fell.
She always did what was best,
For her Clan and all the rest.
No one at all can ever compare,
To all the hardship Bluestar had to bare.
There isn't a doubt at all to me
That Bluestar led her Clan brave and free.
She loved Oakheart but it lead to sadness,
And ...more

We will all have sorrow for Bluestar and we will remember the great things she did for the clan

It was so sad. She saved firehearts life and her clan from the dog pack. Bluestar was so warm hearted she never should have died. And I hate you tigerclaw/star. She was truly the most loyal cat ever. She still looks down on us from star clan

I was in piles of tears! This was sadder than Titanic! It was not really Bluestar's fault she was at war with Starclan. And her children forgave her just as she was about to die. Why couldn't Bluestar's kits believe Firestar! ;-(

Her death was TORTURE to read 😭

2 Firestar Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet named Rusty.

Firestar- We met him as Rusty. We followed him into the heart of the forest. Together, side-by-side, we learned the ways of the warrior code. We fought bravely to protect our clan. We stalked through the depths of the forest. We grew with him, we learned with him, we followed in his pawsteps. From Rusty, to Firepaw, to Fireheart, to Firestar- we became a Warrior through his eyes. The first stories, THE stories, the ones that made us who we are, the ones that gave us Warriors- they are his stories. To see him die is to watch our link die- to watch ourselves die. Rusty was, and still is, and always will be- part of ME. Part of YOU. Part of everything that is Warriors. Such a sad and noble death- may Firestar live forever in the hearts of young Warriors, his memory never fade, his soul forever hunt in Starclan.

Aw. Firestar was so brave and loyal, he doesn't deserve to be voted in 15th place! He should be in first! He saved all the Clans' tails more than once, and then he just dies! Are you kidding me? How can Erin Hunter make Firestar, the greatest cat and leader of all, just die? Two words people... GO FIRESTAR!

I agree, but Firestar wasn't immortal. And it was a noble way to die. - Attuna

I don't want it! Why he died? I love him. He's a hero. He saved the clans.

Firestar was one of the longest lasting leaders to ever live, and one of the greatest as well. He didn't only think of himself, but of his clan, all of the clans, and he fought with them to overcome hard times, his death was too sad for anyone to bear. He deserves to be 1st place on every saddest death list.

3 Silverstream Silverstream

She died HAVING KITS! Also Graystripe and Crookedstar were swept with grief, she didn't even name them! Graystripe was so sad!

It was so sad! I cried so much! Silverstream and Graystripe were perfect for each other!

When I read about silver stream, I was like "what the hell blad, she's from a different clan!
When she died, I was like "why her! " and then I burst into tears.

Silverstream, I will always honor you to the end of time. Have good hunting in starclan my friend

4 Feathertail Feathertail

She had an extremely hard life up to the point of receiving her vision. And then, when she died to save her friends and the Tribe of Rushing Water, she showed that they were more important to her than her own life. How much more of a warrior could she have been?

she didn't deserve to die so young... and she loved crowpaw/crowfeather! (he chose his own warrior name in her memmory) I always score her on quizzes if shes in it. she didn't have to save crowfeather!, but she did it for love.

How is Darkstripe above her?!?!?! she was such a kind hearted warrior... She never caused any problems only tried to mend them... And her love for Crowfeather showed she tried to find the best in every cat... she was such a brave and noble warrior :(

I am so glad she's fourth! She really deserves it! She died saving a whole tribe as well as the cat she loved (Crowfeather). If you think about it, she probably had a pretty hard life. She is half Riverclan half Thunderclan, her mother died giving birth to her, the love of her life was from a different clan. They didn't have any living family in Riverclan and so on.

5 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

Spottedleaf was the best medicine cat ThunderClan ever had. Not only did she die unfairly, but she died trying to protect helpless kits from being kidnapped from the evil ShadowClan cat Clawface! She deserved to die better, because she was always loyal to her clan.

WHEN SHE DIED FOR THE SECOND TIME :( That was so, so, sad. I cried my eyes out. She was in StarClan and then had to die again for a second time... She never was reunited with Firestar. Ever. But I guess it would have caused problems if Spottedleaf, Firestar, and Sandstorm were all in StarClan together haha.

Why did you die spottedleaf well at least she died a noble death protecting kits but still 😢😥😢😢😢

Spottedleaf will always be my favorite cat and best medicine cat the Clans have ever seen. Though, in Firestars Quest, I cried when Rainfur died. He was a noble cat. (But not as noble as Spottedleaf. ) Spottedleaf sill helps her clanmates today. RIP!

I honestly dislike the books for this death! She deserves much better, I would think she would run away with Firepaw! The sad thing is, SHE WAS SAVING KITS FROM CLAWFACE! She was the best med cat ever!

6 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 for killing Ashfur.

Hollyleaf was amazing. She honored the warrior code more than other cat could have done. She was brave, I mean, if it weren't for Hollyleaf, how else would they get rid of Sol for the second time? She didn't deserve her death, stupid Hawkfrost! She had the same personality as me, with all her regret and sadness. Obviously, Hollyleaf's death is the worst tear dropper, for me anyway. R.I.P. Holly

RIP Hollyleaf. She was amazing. Best funeral. And hey, random visitor. She is not a noob, and she could probably beat you in a fight. And she was amazing. Seriously, study your Warriors, boi. - TrueBlueHeroes

I absolutely LOVE Hollyleaf. She is my favorite character. WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE! She should have lived longer than that. She honored the warrior code more than any other cat and was completely loyal to her clan. Some people think she is an evil cat because she killed Ashfur, but she was doing it to keep her CLAN safe. And when she was trapped in the tunnels she still helped her clan. She fought off a fox that could have killed Cerrypaw and Molepaw, she gave the clan herbs, she helped Ivypool and Blossomfall out of the tunnels and gave the clan underground battle training. I know she told all the clans the big secret about her birth, but she did it because she knew it was against the warrior code and HAD to tell everyone else. I think Hollyleaf deserved more than being back for a book and three quarters(ish). Hollyleaf is so awesome and I cried three times. In Sunrise, Hollyleaf's Story and The Last Hope. At least in StarClan she'll have Fallen Leaves. HollyxFallen FOREVER

Yeah I personally think Dovewing should've died instead of Hollyleaf. - Anonymousxcxc

She was a wonderful character! She deserved to be Bramblestar's deputy it if wasn't for Hawkfrost. Plus, it's obvious Bramble was going to choose her if she lived. Besides, she showed the Warrior Code and StarClan more respect and was one of the most forgiving and loyal cats I have read about in the series. When she found out she was replaced, she didn't fuss like her replacement probably would've, she forgave her biological mother as well as her foster one, as well as both her fathers (Crow and Bramble) and tried to make amends even though there were big downs. She never gave up, and she came back. She did all of those things that I said above, as well as did EVERYTHING in her will and power to help. She trained cats in the tunnels and rescued them when they fell in. She even saved Ivypool from Hawkfrost, causing her undoing. She did all of those things, went through so much to return to ThunderClan to see her friends and family again...only to die a second time.

I was reading The last hope in class, and when Hollyleaf died I starting sobbing. My teacher asked me why I was crying and I told her Hollyleaf died. Her face was like " Who the hell is Hollyleaf? "

7 Mosskit Mosskit

So sad! I was bursting into tears, Poor Mosskit, She never lived life to what she wanted to be. I Mosskit lived I would have called her Mossdapple, it is such a pretty name.

I cried when Mosskit died! It was so sad, and she was so lovable! She shouldn't have died because of Thistleclaw - it was his fault! I'd have named her Mossheart if she'd lived.

"She gave Tigerstar a life for mercy"
What did he do with that life? - Pebblepaw

I loved Mosskit! It was so sad how he died and that he had to die so young. When I read it, and when I think about it, I break down and cry every time. Warriors is so- I don't know how to explain it, but it some how makes me think that these are real cats who are dying, and- It's just so sad. I LOVE YOU MOSSKIT, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DIE!?

I would cry, but I've already cried out all my tears for her - Swiftdawn

8 Yellowfang Yellowfang

She loved her adopted clan and clanmates such an incredible amount, that she chose to die for them. She should be honoured beyond any other cat, for her unwavering loyalty to Thunder Clan and the amazing skills she passed on to her loved apprentice Cinder Paw(Pelt). YellowFang chose good over evil when BrokenTail drove her out. Instead of vowing revenge, YellowFang decided to take a more subtle yet nonetheless powerful means of revenge. She chose to rid the forest of BrokenStar and become good at the same time.

She was a grouchy cat, withan easy temper, but at the same time, loving, loyal, caring and sweeter than any cat I can think of.

Go YellowFang!

A beautiful she-cat- not in a appearance, but in nature. Sure, she was cranky, but also caring and wise. She took such good care of Cinderpaw/pelt. I love her. Even after being turned out by her own Clan -by her own SON for StarClan's sake! - she was a good little cat and didn't vow revenge like most ShadowClan cats would, but was quietly harbouring her secret. You know what, I wouldn't be surprised if she did have some ThunderClan blood, the way she acted! And when she killed Brokenstar.. Well, she did what she had to. At least she told her son who his mother was.
And Finally, she died for her new Clan. A medicine cat right to the end.
"A medicine cat have no time for doubt. Put your energy into today and stop worrying about the past. You have a duty to your Clan. Stop dithering and get on with it! " Yellowfang to Cinderpaw
"Thank you for bringing me to ThunderClan. Tell Bluestar I have always been grateful for the home she gave me. This is a good place to die. I only regret ...more

She died trying to save pachpelt I think she gets a thmumbs up

9 Stonefur Stonefur

How is he NOT saddest?! I mean, he was killed for not killing his own apprentice! He had a choice! He could've lived, but he chose not to because he wouldn't do what wasn't right! He was all starved and stuff when he had to fight Darkstripe, but he STILL beat him up, so then NO NO NO, that wasn't the end, Tigerstar ordered Blackfoot to help kill him! And this was in front of everyone, even Leopardstar, and no one did anything! Firestar and Graystripe couldn't do anything, or else they would've been killed too! And with Blackfoot's help, they held him down and killed him! They cut open his throat in front everyone, including two skinny, scared apprentices! And no one even mourned his death, except that Leopardstar did quickly so no one would see, and Mistyfoot saw her dead brother and ran to mourn him while they were trying to get away! SAD! - Splashstorm

I think Stonefur's death is the reason I really don't like Leopardstar. She was only trying to do good for her Clan, but really, why couldn't she see that this was slowly destroying her Clan?! And Stonefur was so brave, really, giving his life for two apprentices. It was so sad! Leopardstar should have tried to stop it... But I don't blame her, I blame Tigerstar.

I think Stonefur's death was quite harsh yet sad. He risked his life to save two apprentices who were going to be killed instead. I think its horrible how Leopardstar would just kill her deputy like that, and watching. I really think this is why I ended up disliking Leopardstar so much, due to how she acted in the early part of warriors. Poor Stonefur, he died a heroic death.

(OH MY GOD) WHY! This Ain’t right!
He died protecting StormPaw and featherPaw. And the saddest thing is, AFTER STONEFUR DIED, HE DID NOT KILL STORMPAW AND FEATHERPAW. I might sound mean but think about it, TigerStar told stoneFur to kill the poor half born kits. Then he kills him. And let’s them survive HE DIED FOR NOTHING

10 Honeyfern

This noble she-cat was walking into camp when she saw a snake slithering up to the kits. At the last moment, she knocked the kit out of the way, but died from a snake bite. Berrynose was in terrible grief. - addisyn00

Yeah, his was in terrible grief for two moons before he mated with her sister. Best way to show his depression, I guess. He's lucky Honeyfern way fine with it. - Pebblepaw

Stupid Snake! Honeyfern should of totally lived!

It was so sad because Honeyfern and berrynose were talking about having kits!

I was so heartbroken! She was a great warrior! She was a real Warrior!

I cried. It was so sad and she was carrying Hawkwings kits! This should be 1st because she did not deserve to die! - Nightkillo

The Contenders

11 Cinderpelt Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She heals other cats in her Clan, ThunderClan, and is reincarnated into Cinderheart.

She had a near death expirience as an apprentice, causing her to have to be a medicine cat. All of her hardwork to prevent deaths, when she had possibly one of the worst ones herself. I mean, a badger storming in on Sorreltail's KITTING, and litteraly shaking her life away.

Her death wasn't sad. It meant she would get to have a Warrior life! It was happy but sad for the rest of us - Catsarah123

It was so sad.. I know she knew she was gonna die, but technically she saved her brother's mate from those badger so she risked her life to save someone else.

I don't know how that comment got ten likes, because its wrong. First off, she died saving Sorreltail. Poppyfrost wasn't even born yet. But I can see how you would think that, but in the books, I believe that the kits weren't born just yet, I remember Leafpool helping with that. I apologize if I prove to be wrong. Second, you're hating on Cinderheart, the cat who has the spirit of Cinderpelt. So saying that Cinderheart is stupid, that's technically dissing your favorite character. Remember, Cinderpelt didn't have the skills to be a medicine cat. Not being mean at all, just stating that she was never destined to be a medicine cat. She got a few signs wrong here and there, but she knew the herbs and taught Leafpool, so she was a good mentor, but not necessarily the best medicine cat. She also wanted to be a warrior, and Tigerclaw just had to rip that out form under her.

Sad death, being killed by a Badger after your apprentice ran off with a warrior of a different Clan because ...more

He death was tragic! Second book... all the way to the new prophecy 5th book. Short life... compared to most cat. LeafPool was crushed! #hatethebadgers

12 Snowfur Snowfur

Snowfur's death was SO sad! She wanted to go into the forest so bad, but she also didn't want to leave Whitekit. She went out and ended up getting hit by the monster, defending her territory. Bluefur was torn up, and poor poor Whitekit! This broke my heart...

Snowfur so pretty in white why couldn't the driver see her in the light. Loyal to thunderclan to her very last breath now she is loyal to starclan as well as thunderclan still on this very day.

WHY is this not higher up on the list?! Snowfur's death was sadder than Firestar's, in my opinion (don't wanna start a flame war here, guys ). Oh my gosh... I'm listening to a sad song right now while thinking of Snowfur... :'( Thistleclaw and Bluestar finally had something in common- grief. Oh my gosh.. *cries a lake*

I literally started to bawl when I read that part in bluestars prophecy.She promised whitekit she would come back to him instead she died because of a stupid monster.

13 Ferncloud

Stupid Brokenstar. He stayed behind after the Dark Forest Battle in the Last Hope was over and grabbed Ferncloud (sweet, gentle Ferncloud) by the neck, snapping her neck and killing her. Yellowfang bit down into his own neck, killing him, because she was so mad her own son could do that. But Dustpelt and her full grown kits were crushed. May the heavens guide your spirit across the stars forever, Ferncloud. Rest. Your life's work is done.

I am so sad! The last hope made me cry so hard! Poor Spottedleaf, Firestar, Mousefur, Hollyleaf, AND FERNCLOUD! Those are the saddest warrior deaths in the last hope. And I agree with you, Dustpelt. You could have saved her. Now, because of those stupid Dark Forest cats, she's dead. STUPID DARK FOREST! I HATE YOU SO MUCH! WHY DID YOU HAVE TO KILL FERNCLOUD? SHES LIKE MY favorite CAT! I am so mad!

Okay, people, this might not be right, but rumor has it that Ferncloud was murdered off because fans said that she had to many kits. - Pebblepaw

Stupid Brokenstar. She didn't deserve to die! Dustpelt was devastated!

To whoever says she was killed because she had too many kits, why is nobody complaining about Snowbird!? She had 9 KITS. 9. Yet nobody talks about her, how cool! - stxpid

Poor swiftpaw! This part made me cry because he didn't deserve to die! )':

Killed by dogs. Sucha promising apprentice to die so young. -

@fuzzystarblazeclan brightpaw didn't love swiftpaw, they were brother and sister.. And yes I do agree swiftpaw's death was sad and uncalled for

It's sad because he wanted to be a warrior. I hate Cloudtail, he took Brightpaw from him! Brightpaw really followed him to make sure he was safe. I wish just Brightpaw went, but I'm glad he's dead, no hurting.

15 Moonflower Moonflower

I was reading Bluestar's Prophecy in the car on my way to camping and I just started bawling and my brother just looks at me like in a freak. But it was so sad when Bluepaw was trying to wake her up but she was dead...

She didn't deserve to die! She was only following orders!... And she still had kits to raise... D':

She said the next day she was going to take blue paw and snow paw to collect the softest moss and she slept with blue paw and snow paw the night before the battle

Moonflower deserved better; Her mate was horrible, and also, in the battle, she could have survived if ONLY STORMTAIL could have helped her. But nooo, he was with his dearest love! Ugh. - stxpid

16 Whitestorm

Whitestorm was my favorite character, and if I remember right he was killed by Bone, Scourge's deputy, when they had to drive Bloodclan from the forest (after Tigerbutt brought them there). He was going to retire to the elders den after that battle, they should have let him retire. :(

When he died, I ran out of my room and started screaming in front of my brother about how Whitestorm died. He gave me this weird look and I ran into my room and started crying. WHY ERIN HUNTER? Why could she kill such a sweet and wise deputy? He was my favorite character ever.

What about Whitestorm? He was so awesome! And smart, too!

To me this is not really scourge is fault it is only thistleclaws fault for this he was the one who made tigerstar bad then made tigerstar wound scourge as a kit this is thistleclaws fault hten scourge attacked and bone killed whitestorm :(

17 Longtail Longtail

I loved Longtail. I hated how he died. SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE SAVED HIM I hate that everyone was caring for Briarpaw but there was only one sentance of Longtail's death. That's how much he was liked.
The reason I like him is because he's a minor cat, but his personality's so similar to mine, it's like seeing myself die in a book.

It was so sad when Longtail got hit by the tree. Dovepaw should have saved him. He was such a great cat...

He respected firestar after he saw tigerclaws real colors. STUPID TREE! SoMEbody should had saved him. Really why did anyone not jump in there grabbed him and got out. Instead they worry about briarpaw and IGNORE THAT A CAT JUST DIED! BUT I want to say that was a great stunt briarpaw pulled there... Risking her life for longtail. Longtail was my favorate!,!

I burst into tears when he died. Lots of people's first impressions on him when they read Into The Wild for the first time are "I don't like him, he tried to fight Rusty and he has a bad attitude." I feel sorry for him, because Firestar didn't trust him until later on and he didn't finish mentoring all of his apprentices, and he got his eyes scratched out! Poor Mousefur was devastated when Longtail died. DUMB TREE - loafieh

Stupid mapleshade it's all her fault poor crookedstar he loved her and 2 of their kits die

I love this cat! That's all I have to say really because that sums it up

This was so sad I cried and said she should have lived poor crookedstar it broke his heart

When Willowbreeze died I was like nooo don’t die... MAPLESHADE WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN? Why? I mean OK, Willow’s death wasn’t your fault I get it but I STILL HATE YOU MAPLE. I feel so bad for Crookedstar. Why did you have to die Willowbreeze?

Shouldn't have died because of stupid Tigerstar.

It was so sad reading about greiving 4 his foster mother, she was probly the sweetest in the clan, and that stupid, no good, evil, furball Tigerstar killed her - bteamer34

I thought this death was so sad. Cloudtail had just said goodbye to her and she ended up dying before he got to see her again. The saddest thing in the world...

WHY!? Tigerstar literally killed her just to get the dogs to have the taste of cats. Then his plan failed so she died for nothing. Tigerstar was the reason that so many cats died and I swear that if he is one of the saddest deaths I am going to just!

20 Flametail

Poor thing didn't deserve to drown stupid Rock

Flametail was a great medicine cat! He was just having some fun on the ice and he drowned! It was so sad! His last thought was for his fellow medicine cat, Jayfeather, to know that everything was going to be alright! I was like crying!

I think that this is the saddest death because flametail accepted that he was going to die, and when he saw Rock, he thought "is that a cat from starclan coming to get me? " I cried and cried

Rock you killed my favorite cat. dumb mouse brain. the prophecy is less important than Flametail!

21 Tallstar Tallstar

Tallstar made the wrong choice for deputy... (mudclaw) it was a very sad time when he died... But trying to cling on to his last life he said that the rightful deputy.. Is Onewhisker... Tallstar was a great leader.. Even when he knew he had made mistakes he tried to correct them... He deserves to be higher on this list.

I would say Tallstar because he is just flat out amazing. He was a way better leader then Onestar. I thought Onestar would be a good leader but NO! He turned out to be a butthole. I mean, for crying out loud! Onewhisker and Fireheart were really good friends!

He was such a great cat. He was noble, kindhearted, and awesome. I agree he has to be higher on the list. love you tallstar

Firestar and Tallstar were pretty good friends. I kinda cried when he died. - TheYogurtKid

23 Lionheart

Lionheart's death isn't the saddest one, but its very depressing how he was killed because Graystripe was very attached to him along with the rest of the clan. He was a great warrior in my opinion

Lionheart is a great warrior, he was perfect, he could never be doubted and always followed the warrior code like a real warrior should, he was a very fine temporary mentor to Firestar, and Bluestar was so sad when he died, so was Greystripe, Lionheart, I cried when you died, I would have lied, for you, Lionheart. And even worse, replacing Lionheart was that evil Tigerstar!

Lionheart beloved father and warrior

He was so sweet - Leafshade

24 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 .

I agree villians are not born but created and thanks to socks ruby and tigerpaw/tigerclaw/tigerstar scourge is a cold hearted cat.

Must I repeat myself? Yes, his childhood was sad. But if a murderer kills your family and friends, are you gonna think,"Well, he had a sad past, so it's perfectly acceptable for him to kill people! " No. Unless you're weird. Who here was sad when Tigerstar died? How about Darkstripe? Hawkfrost? Brokenstar? Hm? Almost no one, I see.

You can't blame him for it he had a sad kit hood but the he became powerful and evil so truth be told power does corrupt and he's was to corrupt to live but read the manga warrior series and you will understand why like the saying goes don't judge a book by its cover

Yes, he was evil. But I cried all night when he died. he's my 2 favourite warrior cat and my favourite Villan.

25 Storm

I had so many mixed feeling for storm, when she left gray wing and when she died I still can't believe she choose clear sky over GRAY WING! He loved her and she was like what ever why would she choose clear sky, like he is the worst cat!

Stop stealing all the girls from Gray Wing, Clear Sky! Did you know that Gray Wing like Bright Stream, too?

I prefer Turtle Tail to be Gray Wing's mate than Storm but Storm didn't even have a chance to name her kit Thunder. Stupid Clear Sky!

Umm how is her death more sad then Gray wing or the other DotC characters?

26 Badgerpaw

His death was so unfair and when he started speaking to Flintfang and telling him how good a mentor he was it broke my heart. It was not the saddest death but he should be in the top 20. Badgerpaw was to young to die!

HOW IS THIS NOT THE TOP ONE? I KNOW A LOT OF WARRIORS OUT THERE DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS BUT HE'S THE ONLY ONE I EVER CRIED ABOUT! EVER! It's so sad. But so sweet because he got his warrior name right before he died. But it's not fair! I read his whole life in one sitting! He was my favorite character in Yellowfang's Secret besides Yellowfang and the other medicine cats! HE DIED BEFORE HE EVEN SHOULD HAVE BEEN AN APPRENTICE! I HATE YOU BROKENTAIL! I feel like Badgerclaw is my son almost! It's not fair! I love you like a son, Badgerfang.

DUMB BROKENSTAR! It was his fault that Badgerpaw died. BAD BROKENSTAR! BAD BROKENSTAR! If Brokenstar haven't been evil, Badgerpaw would had been alive!

Ok how is he not up top he died when he was technically a kit and it broke my heart.he wanted to be a good warrior and worked hard and he told flint fang that he was a good and awesome mentor

27 Snowkit Snowkit

He was so small and helpless and it was so sad when brackenfur didn't give up and continued to run after him when no other cats did. He didn't deserve to die even if every one was right when that said he couldn't be a warrior

Poor little snowkit I cried when he was taken by the hawk I like to think he didn't die but was taken somewhere where he was happy but I felt so bad for brindleface! She loved them so much!

Was killed by a bird, and was deaf and white.

The death was so sad! I cried all night just thinking of how much pain Snowkit would’ve been in! Brakenfur didn’t give up running! I just can’t anymore! 😢😭😭😢😢

I loved Leopardstar once I heard her name. Leopardstar dying is like firestar dying to me. She was brave and strong, a little proud too, but she was leader of the best clan ever! Sickness took her 8th life away, and infection from a thorn took her soul.

Leopardstar you are my favorite leader and I want to be like you. I miss you.

I am sorry but I just love Leopardstar! And her dying words were so sad!

She is the reason I like Tigerstar (I know unusual opinion) because she fell in love with Tigerstar and she put her clan at risk *inhale* why Lepordstar but that's okay I LOVE HERRR - WillowShine1342

32 Sorreltail Sorreltail

Even though she was just a side character she had an actual personality that set her apart. She was also very loyal to her clan and had many friendships with main characters. Brambleclaw even said that she would make a dangerous and respected warrior.

Sorreltail may have been considered a "minor" character, but it broke my heart when she died. I felt really bad for all of her kits and her mate, Brackenfur. I loved every single one of her kits, and I wish that there was a story on her that let us see inside her heart.

She. Is. Awesome. She was Leafpool's friend and I really liked her! She died AFTER the last hope, by the way people. Read Dovewing's silence.

Sorreltail is one of my favourite warrior cats, I felt bad when she died She really didn't deserve it.

33 Seedpaw

Innocent young apprentice and the daughter of Brackenfur and Sorreltail. Also the sister of Lilypaw. She saved her sister from drowning but she ended up drowning. :( Seedpaw will be able to rejoice with her mother, Sorreltail. I understand when a cat that lived their lives fully dies but when young apprentices, kits, and warriors die without experiencing life, it's hard to take in. It is very similar in real life too.

Stupid Stick of the Fallen. If they didn't see it then Seedpaw wouldn't have died

Seedpaw's death was so sad

So sad

34 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw

Thistleclaw was evil, mean. He beat up tiny (scourge) when he was just a kit! He was horrible. He died fighting. Just like him to die like that. Yay for him, he went to the dark forest to train cats and fighter wanna bes. He would have killed the clan if he became deputy, instead Blue star did. Whatever for him. He was just mean.

Who DARES to say Bluestar is a JERK? Bluestar was WONDERFUL! THISTLECLAW WAS THE JERK! He deserved to die! He beat up tiny Scourge! I don't really like Scourge that much, but he was a KIT! NO KIT DESERVES TO BE TREATED LIKE THAT! Whoever thinks that Bluestar is a jerk, then YOU'RE A JERK! SO THERE!

I hate him anyway did you know he killed moss kit by sending blue fur to give them to there father oak heart at river clan so blue fur can be deputy

Bluestars a jerk, she was like " noo no marry me sis" so he got mad... insert explanation

35 Red

The entire goal of everything stick does in this book is to in the end get his daughter back. And at the end he just kills her like wow so sad. This deserves to be like #6

I picked Red because it's so so so sad that her own dad killed her.

I like Stick but stupid Stick for killing Red. Let her do what she wants I say!

Listen.Red love Harvey.She risked her life for her only true love and her kits.Stick,however called it forbidden love.Stick is an evil father.

36 Badgerfang Badgerfang

Badgerfang never should have died he was only four moons old he should have still been in the nursery all because of Brokenstar's bloody leadership more cats died because of Brokenstar

Badgerfang's death was the only Warrior Cat death to make me cry. I loved him so much, he would have made a great warrior. I draw pictures of him all the time and I named one of my cats after him.

"I'd like to be called Badgerfang. Like you, because you were such a great mentor."

HE WAS ONLY 4 MOONS OLD! And he was so cute! He didn't deserve to die so young!

Poor Badgerfang. He was so young when he died! :'(
Thanks a lot, Brokenstar. - Heathersong

37 Rainfur

Rainfur is one of my favorites why did he have to die stupid rats why didn't sandstorm save rainfur first firestar had 6 lives left sandstorm could have saved firestar after

Stupid rats! He was barely made a warrior of skyclan! He shouldn't have died! Seriously!

Killed by a pack of rats in an attack.

I believe this is his name. The skyclan warrior who died fighting rats for his kits. So sad! And later everyone said he was stupid. And that he died since he COULD fight rats which was wrong. He had a hard life. I miss him terribly. I literally cried. He even had a warrior name before he joined the clan. He was definitely a skyclan descendant. We should all honor him.

38 Fallen Leaves

Dear jaypaw must of cried when he saw poor Fallen Leaves die. He was there, but not even a cat more powerful than starclan can change the past in the present. Fallen Leaves was only to ready to be a sharpclaw, and even though it was cloudy, went into the tunnels that took his life, not knowing that his own excitement and fear would kill him, as he struggled. He was so close, but his mark on rock's stick is left unscratched.

Dark river in general made my cry that was the most saddest book in the series I felt really bad for Jayfeather Fallen Leaves was like his only friend the only one who truly understood and his ability to go back in time and try to change it even when he couldn't then lost his stick. Jayfeather has had a hard life this book totally made me care for Jayfeather so much more fallen leaves didn't deserve to die that way if only they could have found his remains and took them out of the cave his soul would have been set free probably this is why I think the seventh series should be about the ancient cats before the moved to the mountains before greywing and clear sky

Fallen Leaves' impatience lead him to his own death, but I still think his death was very sad and should not be all the way down at 24! Vote Fallen Leaves!

I teared up when Fallen Leaves said you joined me like a brother.
He didn't deserve to die. - TheYogurtKid

39 Gorsepaw

That one was sad. TigerClan just decides to show up and attack wind clan. I don't remember who killed Gorsepaw but it was sad how morningflower was all sad and stuff

It was Tigerstar who killed him. :'( He set it as an example of what would happen to those who refused to join TigerClan ;'(


Gorsepaw was the saddest death. I love his mother and just...I HATE YOU TIGERSTAR - DJPug

40 Mapleshade Mapleshade Mapleshade is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She is a tortoiseshell she-cat with a white tail and mistakenly described as ginger-and-white. She has her own novella and is a villain in the series after she is exiled from ThunderClan, after which she watched her kits die and was abandoned more.

I feel bad for her. She just wanted to be a loyal clan cat and to have kits and a mate but her mate was from another clan and he betrayed her and she was banished and she could have been so much better - Username123

I don't think Mapleshade was evil at first. She was driven mad by her losses: Her Clan, Appledusk, and her kits. She killed because she wanted revenge, hence the name "Mapleshade's Vengeance." I think she became evil from being in the Dark Forest for too long.

One of my favorite Warrior Cats. Mapleshade lost EVERYTHING. Her kits, her mate, her home, and her sanity.

I was so sad when she died she is one of the two female villains and my faveroute warrior cat I was so sad when she died.

41 Mudclaw

This cat was going up against One star because Tall star made One whisker his deputy the moment before he died. Mudclaw was crushed by a TREE! Sad death for a person who all he wanted to be was clan leader. I am so crushed.

I am
So sad
Don't go away from me
Don't get crushed by a tree
And go to Star clan and watch everyone,
Down near where there is the setting sun
It makes me cry to watch you go
Oh star clan make it snow
To show the tears I shed today
To mudclaw, a brave and trusting mate

A little dramatic? I don't care he was amazing.

I don't even like mud claw but that is a sick way to die

I think Mudclaw could've been a better leader than Onestar, like Onestar is completely insane right now! I've read Thunder and Shadow and Onestar is a pain in the tail. Also he died from a tree. that's pretty sad, considering not many cats have died from trees.

Mudclaw would of been a better leader that one star. My reasons are : one, one star (whisker at the time ) mated with a kitty pet
Two. rejected his son, leading to the death of many cats, including himself.
Three. Closed the borders, and refused to help shadow clan to protect his own hide.
Four. Tallstar asked on star to lead on with Tc and Wc’s relationship, which he did not.
Five. He’s called one star for a reason most people would rate him one star.
Six. Onestar is like King Soloman. He wants the two kits to be divided between four clans, BUT THE MATH doesn't EXACTLY MATCH UP THERe, DOES IT?

The only logical solution is to cut Violetpaw and Twigpaw in half

42 Redtail

He died in the prologue, not even getting to know him. We barely even met him in Bluestar's Prophecy, if you're wondering about that. I think that Redtail should've lived longer, or maybe even have more info on him, like a short story or something like that.

The first person who did the rockfall comment is WRONG! Stupid Tigerclaw killed him in the first place!

Has this rockfall person even read the books?

How tf is Thistleclaw above Redtail

43 Nightstar

It's bad enough that he got rejected by starclan to be the new leader of shadow clan, but then getting killed in w so knees that was thought to have claimed mall of his lives. That's just mean!

Don't think it is fair, and that tiger star the butthole replaced him

He went crazy when he became leader but I like the name nightstar

"Night star got roasted by star clan," said running nose

44 Rainwhisker

Rainwhisker was awesome! How DARE any tree kill him. he loyal, smart, awesome, young, awesome, ect.

Rainwhisker deserves to be in the top ten! He was really loyal to his clan and it was so sad when he died just by a stupid tree!

I was so annoyed when rainwhisker died. He was so nice and awesome and he deserved a more dramatic, memorable death. Instead it was just mentioned at the start of the book
I cried when I found out rainwhisker died even though it said next to nothing about it

Rainwhisker is literally my favorite I was so depressed when he died I loved him so MUCH

45 Gray Wing

No okay I cried, hard HE DIED IN FRONT OF HIS KITS AND SLATE! He actually loved slate the were the best couple Gray wing fathered so many cats even some who weren't his own he took in Thunder when Thunders OWN father cast him out and when former mate, Turtle Tail died he raised her kits alone who weren't really his kits and he pretty much raised Jagged Peak to and His kits with slate too thought he was like acting or something but he was surrounded by his family. He was the one who made everything he made clans when he died he suffered many things death,fires,Broken-hearted. Through all these things he was loyal all the way to the end and did not give up.

Gray Wing... The father of the Clans, one might say. After living through so much grief and hardship... I still hardly believe he's gone. Though he did get a luxury that not many cats did. He was able to spend his last moments with those who loved him, unafraid of the future. And who could forget his final thoughts as the Dawn of the Clans arc ended?

This was so sad! And then the book just ENDED right after he died and I was just like "What happened? " I never like characters like Thunder who everyone likes and who are so strong and awesome, which is why I like Gray Wing because he had that breathing problem practically for the whole series but he never gave up. He ad so many sad things happen, like Turtle Tail and Storm and Shaded Moss and Rainswept Flower and his mother and Moon Shadow dying, and then HE died. I was like, DUHHH when he named the Clans it was so OBVIOUS! This is my favorite series!

,this should be number 1! Graywing was the only reason I read the DOTC

He didn't even live a full day! Windstar was devastated... - IcetailofWishClan

47 Dustpelt

Dustpelt had the most tragic life, but he was one of the most loyal warriors. He was the one that always disagreed with Firestar, the one who kept him on his toes, but he was still loyal to the end and so hard working. His life was so full of tragedy, and once Ferncloud died, his life basically ended. By the time he died, he wanted to die, and that just makes it all the worse. It also doesn't help that he had enough dead kits that they made a point about them all visiting him when he died.

Yes, it was very sad when dustpelt died even his last words and his final words to ferncloud made me miserable

It was so sad when he died in Bramblestar's Storm, I cried forever

This death was actually kind of happy...
I mean think about it dustpelt lost almost all his kits (except birchfall) and he lost his mate 😭😫.Then he had to live in depression and was so sad 😢.Think about it when he died he got to see all his kits (larchkit,hollykit,icecloud,foxleap,shrewpaw,
And spiderleg)and he gets to see ferncloud.If he would have lived he would’ve had to suffer even more.please be happy that he is now with his family

48 Cloudpelt

I agree because he will always be my favorite cat that should of become leader! Cloudpelt will always be with because he has the same name as my kitten! Or at least part of it because it is Cloud!

Cloudpelt was a very noble warrior. I honestly think that he would have made an amazing leader! Stupid Brokentail actually WANTED Cloudpelt to die! Yellowfang was devastated when he died! He didn't even live long enough to fulfil his dream of starting a family! :,(

Poor cloudpelt he was set up to be killed for another cats stupid ambition


49 Frecklewish

Are you talking about the freckle wish from sky clan or from the novella because if it's from the novella her death it's not that's sad I hate the novella I mean I don't hate the novella I hate freckle wish from it

Guys this is Frecklewish from Mapleshade's Vengeance. Mapleshade was about to kill her when a snake came and bit Frecklewish, and Mapleshade left her to die. - GoldenTemmie

I was so sad to see Frecklewish die.

I hate Frecklewish.
Besides, what kind of name is that? Warrior Cats don’t know what a freckle is. - Camaro6

50 Sootfur

I cried so much when he died he was such a loyal warrior and no one could help him because a stupid badger broke his back legs :'(
It was even sadder when sorreltail found out because she was so upset

I liked him! He was so awesome. And he was killed by a stupid badger - just like he lost his mom!

I cried so hard, I just pictured it in my head.. Sootfur's back legs were broken and then squirrelflight.. D:

He was an idot but it was sad - Leafshade
