Top 10 Saddest Warrior Cat Injuries


The Top Ten

1 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.

I wish Cinderpelt and Briarlight ever got to meet. Cinderpelt would have been great help to her, and I'm sure would have been very supportive. After all, they suffered from similar injuries. Both crippled. I hope Cinderheart will remember everything being Cinderpelt when she joins StarClan. If she didn't, it would be like Cinderpelt never existed. I think she will remember, though, because it was said that Cinderheart only doesn't know in the waking world. ANyway, I find there to be so many sad injuries and disabilities in Warriors, so it would be hard to choose just one.

Her injury prevented her from being with her one true love, forced her to conceal her emotions and dreams, shattered her fate and dreams, and made her sadly watch the clans happenings from the shadows of the Medicine Cat den, never to run or hunt again.

Her leg prevented so many things! Her warrior ship, her love, it was so sad! I'm glad she came back to fulfill her dream of being a warrior. - GalaxyWarriorCat

I absolutely LOVE Cinderpelt it is so sad when she died🐈😿😭

2 Crookedjaw

Poor Crookedjaw... I cannot even imagine how painful it would've been to smash your jaw from falling on a river, than being dissed by your mother.

Rainflower was so cruel to him,how could she rename after he fell and hurt his jaw ON ACCIDENT! He had a Terrible mother and hard life but he was a very loyal and brave warrior and leader

Poor crooked jaw all crushed! and his mother could have given him respect and cared for him! - Firedawn

He was Stormkit, twisted his jaw, his mother hated him, his clan hated him, he ran away, he came back to RiverClan, his clan STILL hated him, and all thanks to a stupid mouse-brained promise, his mother died, his father died, his brother fell in love with a ThunderClan cat, his mate and two of his kits died and his last daughter died while giving birth to Feathertail and Stormfur

Please only talk about the injury. The rest of his live doesn't matter to the category. - Lilycat14192

3 Briarlight

By far, Briarlight has the saddest injury in all the books. Imagine dreaming of being a warrior, and suddenly you get crushed and can't walk. Now, you are a useless cat who can't even WALK. You have to exercise every day just to breathe. How terrible is that!

At least Cinderpelt can still be useful to the clan. Briarlight can't even become a medicine cat. - RisingMoon

I love her. Her injury was horrible, and she must hate seeing her friends and siblings doing what she always wanted to and never can. (except after she dies). She is strong enough to live, and tat makes her so awesome. A lot of people would kill themselves because they couldn't stand it. That means this injury is terrible. - Lilycat14192

If Briarlight wasn't injured, Blossomfall wouldn't have gone to the Dark Forest. Poor Briarlight... At least her Clanmates tried to help her.

4 BrightHeart

In my opinion, this is the saddest injury in the series. I felt so bad for her when she lost her eye and when she thought she was ugly. And especially when Bluestar named her LOSTFACE! I was so mad when that happened. But does anyone agree that Cloudtail and Brightheart are one of the BEST/CUTEST couples in the ENTIRE GROUP OF SERIES? I love that part when he says that she's still beautiful to him!

Brightheart hated herself after she lost her eye, and Bluestar (my least favorite cat) decided to name her Lostface! It was Bluestars fault she and Swiftpaw decided to find the dogs that were stealing prey! All they wanted was to be warriors! Brightheart (paw) was forced to see Swiftpaw die protecting her! She had to live her whole life with kits saying she was ugly, and had to live even when she was depressed and thought that she was ugly herself! Cloudtail was the only one able to bring her out of depression. And she had to train longer and harder since she had one eyes. She always thought Jaypaw hated her because he wanted to become a medicine cat apprentice instead of hers.

I feel bad for her but I hate a dangerous path because one the dogs are the main villains come on that's dull its just cats and dog's all over again and two Swiftpaw and bright paw

Poor Brightheart.

5 Deadfoot

Yep. His prefix definition is unique. Kinda like Loud- belly and Mumble- foot.

Deadfoot was born with a "dead" paw. I think his injury is still sad, but Deadfoot sounds way better than Hopfoot. And it fools warriors into thinking he's weak. I think he actually benefited from his injury more than the others like Crookedjaw and Cinderpelt.

6 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 and walk into other cats dreams. He is blind.

Jayfeather is blind and constantly hated on constantly by Warriors fans. Plus, he's my personal favorite

Jayfeather should have been a warrior and become leader.

Yes true, I should have said disabilities in the title - Snowpelt

Actually, he is not "constantly hated on." He is constantly fangirled over. He is one of the least hated on cats ever! He is also a Gary Stu.

I still kinda like him though.

7 One-eye

They did, mouse-brain, and anyway, One-eye didn't care, or at least in the books she didn't.

Atlest brightheart can feel her pain I wish they meet

8 Snowkit Snowkit

Oh god. If he weren't deaf he wouldn't have died. Then he could be a great warrior. But no! Darn you Erin Hunter! - AnonymousChick

I was so sad when he died I was kind of angry that they didn't add more to his story

That isn't an injury. - Oliveleaf

Don't say that cause you won't be able to read the Warriors books if Erin Hunter wasn't living!
I mean... I cried so much too

9 LongTail

Of all the things to be blinded by, it had to be a BUNNY! Then he has to die being crushed by a treesaving a mouse! His is really sad. RIP Longtail.

10 Daisy

I don't understand all the hate Daisy gets. She has one of the saddest lives in warriors and has one of the most painful injuries. Just imagine a huge dark forest cat digging his claw deep into your muzzle and scratching the same depth. OW!

Yes, it proves that she fights so it's one of the most badass injuries in all the books. Poor Daisy though.

The scar on her muzzle. It must've hurt like hell!

The Contenders

11 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.

She was never injured. Oh wait yes she was I forgot lol

Yes she injured her leg in hollyleaf a story

When she injured her leg that was sad.

13 Berrynose

No.. Fox traps DO HURT! I mean for berry nose it wasn't that bad cause it was just his tail but being caught in a trap around the neck or tail is one of the worst pains an animal can be in.

His tail is small. That's not horrible! Yes fox traps hurt, but not as bad as BADGERS or GETTING RUN OVER!

I don't see his as very sad...

Tails don't hurt in fox traps but necks and paws do.

14 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 .

He didn't get heart physically but his sister and brother broke his heart it fixed itself up but in a bad way.

I love scourge

One of my favourite characters and favourite villains. His childhood was so sad :C

So sad

15 Jagged Peak

Jagged Peak injury is one of the worst because he was so proud, so fierce, and after, he is rejected by his one brother and became useless... It's terrible for the the young cat who wanted so badly independence and recognizance. Except for Crookedstar, none of the injured cats suffered so much of loneliness and despair and rejection as him.

Mate: Holly
Daughter: Dew Nose
Sons: Eagle Feather, Storm Pelt
Mother: Quiet Rain
Brothers: Grey Wing, Clear Sky
Sister: Fluttering Bird
Clan: Shadow Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

Jagged Peak injured his leg (like Cinderpelt), from falling out of a tree. He thus was rejected by his brother and underestimated about his leg, like Jayfeather who got treated like he was 'special' as a kit. In the end, Jagged Peak got back his 'popularity' as a cat, but was always weak in battle because of his accident. The accident changed his life. - sunheart360

Jagged Peak was one stupid kit, but yet again he brought Grey Wing to their new home, thus this whole series…. He was once a proud cat (quite selfish too) but after his injury from falling from a tree he didn't believe in himself enough. Holly gave him strength and love (and kits). He is now a proud father and a proud cat once more.. But for the time it lasted his leg really was a sad injury...possibly a burden to carry on his shoulders for the rest if his life. Although his mental scars have thoroughly healed, his leg will forever be lame.… (I also thing that Jagged Peak and Rainswept Flower would have been a good ship) - CreamstripeOfButterClan

16 Snowtuft

That scene where he's gets his belly rip opened by Shredtail made me shake. I'd really like to know more about him. On why he's so scared and worried all the time and why he's the Dark Forest. It makes me pity him a little bit. Though only a LITTLE bit as he did still take part in the death of Hollyleaf. - Mellowix

17 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.

If anyone is upset about Tigerstar's death, they are weird. He killed Gorsepaw, Redtail, Runningwind, Swiftpaw, Brindleface, TRIED to kill Bluestar, gave Brightheart and Cinderpelt their injuries, and is responsible for the deaths of Stonefur and Whitestorm, and brought the dogs into the forest! SO glad he's gone.

Tigerstar KILLED Gorsepaw, Redtail, Runningwind AND is responsible for the deaths and/or injuries of Swiftpaw, Bluestar, Stonefur, Whitestorm, Brindleface, Brightheart, Cinderpelt, and sort of Firestar. He also brought Scourge and dogs into the forest.

I know he was the bad guy but he did NOT deserve THAT death.

I waw happy when he died but HIS GUTS SPILLED OUT WHEN HE DIED it is a very gorey way to die don't you think even Firestar was surprised

18 Mistyfeather

Who is Mistyfeather?

He's in the vision of shadows series. Darktail challenges him to a fight even though he knows mistfeather is to weak and he kills him. So sad.

Is misty feather your OC? Dang there are OCs on this list now. FILL THE LIST WITH OCS!

19 Lilywhisker

She is in the dark forrest

She should not have been in the Dark Forest... she was a kind cat and HAD accepted her fate! - sunheart360

20 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

He was caught in a fox trap and almost broke his neck. Now that's what you call a bad injury.

He also gets many more serios injeries

21 Tawnypelt

It wasn't the worst injury, but she hurt her shoulder in one of the books. It's still sad because she couldn't participate in anything.

Aw yes it was a bad injury poor girl

Muu she was so awesome and a rat bit her! I like rats but that rat was dumb.

22 Millie Millie Millie is a character in the Warriors series. She's a small, short-furred light gray tabby with blue eyes and a torn ear. Also current mate of Graystripe and mother of Bumblestripe, Blossomfall and Briarlight.

In the manga, she got her eyes scratched and she couldn't see. Millie is a great cat and she didn't deserve to be injured.

I don't know why everyone hates her.

Why do some buttholes hate her and WHAT U SAY IS WHAT U ARE.! Millie I love you! do you go to Starclan yet?

23 Ivypool Ivypool

Lots of scars

24 WarriorOCs

Died of naming extinction. Ring a bell? ( Wolfhowl )

25 Brambleclaw

He bashed his head on a rock during the badger attack at the badger set in The New Prophecy series. He was stunned for a few minutes. I'm surprised he didn't suffer brain damage, maybe just a cracked skull. In Leafpool's Wish, after he fights and kills Hawkfrost, it is mentioned he has lots of scratches and that his claws were about to fall out. He got a thorn stab in the battle with WindClan and RiverClan. I can't remember how he injured his shoulder, I think the badger attack in the ThunderClan camp, but it left a nasty scar. He fell down the Sun-drown place and almost drowned, but Squirrelflight saved him. The worst part of that was him vomiting.

Injured his shoulder and now has a scar.

26 Moonflow

Wow sounds like a huge Mary Sue to me.

My OC. Gets scratched by a crow, bitten by a snake, burnt her tail in a fire, has a scar on her side, and gets her throat almost torn out by a hawk. (Surprisingly she is still alive) - DragonFire1o

She’s not. But I can take out a few injuries if you want so she doesn’t seem like one. - DragonFire1o

27 Creamstripe

Creamstripe is my OC. She was almost drowned as a kit and in result she constantly coughs and feels stinging pain from deep in her throat. She eventually has a fit because of this and dies. - CreamstripeOfButterClan

B-butterclan? is this a clan of kittypets? do they eat butter as prey? IS THERE A CAT IN YOUR CLAN NAMED SILVERSPOON?
- Northstar of Stormclan

28 Mousefur Mousefur

She didn't deserve to die, and A BROKEN NECK? She was great, didn't deserve to die.

29 Wildfur

Don't get me started... - IcetailofWishClan

That was a sad death.

30 Halftail Halftail

Atlest one eye fells his pain in glade one eye and half tail are mates

31 Tornbone

Tornbone is my OC. He is a badass red and black thunderclan cat. He has a torn limb but can still fight!

32 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

You know that scar she has on her shoulder.

We never find out how she got her scar.

33 Brightshine

So we making Oc's?

Apparently... Well I guess it's time to add my OC because there's no point in keeping dis list canon anyway!

34 Stormpelt

It was Stonepelt

Bluefur was so devastated that her mentor got hurt she only wanted to train with him not sunfall

35 Antpelt

How was he criticly injured?

36 Shredtail
37 Yellowfang Yellowfang

She has the poor flattend face! But she is still very pretty on the inside.

38 Gray Wing

Grey Wing was once a fast cat that had no trouble breathing...but in return for saving his poo of a brother Clear Sky and his cats he was given asthma... (what a nice reward). This has resulted him in nearly dying multiple times and being treated as if he were unable to do anything (like Jagged Peak, his brother). Eventually his asthma kills him, nearly having it all of his life he still managed to prove himself and to do many things...AND ALL OF THIS IS BECAUSE OF STUPID CLEARSKY (Jagged Peaks injury is for this last sentence as well). - CreamstripeOfButterClan

Mates: Turtle Tail (Formerly), Slate
Daughter: Silver Stripe
Sons: White Tail, Black Ear
Mother: Quiet Rain
Brothers: Clear Sky, Jagged Peak
Sister: Fluttering Bird
Clan: Shadow Clan (Formerly), Wind Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

His injury (asthma) actually KILLED him, Like really? Everyone Else was lucky

39 Graystripe

He hurt his shoulder in a manga after being minorly clipped by a car.

40 Foxtail

I see from Tornbone and berrystorm that OC's are allowed in this list. So... Foxtail broke her paw, in a badger attack...

41 Grayleaf

She is a grey cat and she injured her leg when she was small. :(

42 Stargleam
43 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost


44 Ashfur Ashfur

In one book he cuts his paw and can't walk

45 Swiftstrike

Injured her back legs.

46 Oakheart
47 Feathertail

Fell from stalactite killing Sharptooth AND herself! It's incredibly sad. She didn't deserve to die. I wish Feathertail could live happily with her brother.

"I'll always be with you, I promise."

48 Milkweed

Milkweed is an actual cat in dawn of the clans arc
Mates: Splinter (Formerly), Leaf
Daughters: Clover, Bramble, Shivering Rose, Morning Fire, Beech Tail
