Top Ten Saddest Warrior Cats Moments

The Top Ten Saddest Warrior Cats Moments

1 When Crookedstar's Mom "Abandons" Crookedstar

rainflower you are a jerk you are such a jerk that I didn't even make the first letter in your name capitalized.

I HATE RAINFLOWER. when I read crooledstars promise I cried when she didn't want to share a nest with him and made hailstar change his name

I've loved Crookedstar since I read Crookedstar's Promise (it almost made me cry when Willowbreeze and 2 of his kits died) and I'm glad Rainflower died, shame on her!

I think this made me shed a tear...I also wanted to punch her in the face...and then make her into a loving mother that doesn't only care for looks but for the soul...that's the problem with some people these days people don't accept each other. At least Crookedstar had Oakheart's shoulder to lean on when he needed it!

2 Dovewing Being Born

Ivypool should have been the one in the prophecy! I respect that other people LOVE Dovewing, but I just REALLY HATE HER.


dovewing is so prissy I wish she had died instead of hollyleaf and plus she BETRAYED ThunderClan

dovewing is a mary sue she is bratty and prissy and snorts all the time and all she does is moon over tigerheart/star well until she finally has kits with him and se betrayed thunderclan not like hollyleaf she didn't exactly betray thunderclan but she died trying to save it so she should have died a long time ago

3 When Firestar Dies

COME ON! Think about this for a second. He lead them all to the lake, killed Scourge, encouraged all the other Clans to fight BloodClan, gave up a life for Onestar, and SO MUCH MORE. Every life he lost (apart from illness) was for his Clan or the other Clans. He is the best cat in the series.

Yes, this is pretty sad, but it makes sense. I'm not sniffling an whining over this because there was clear intent behind this.
Firestar was the main character from the beginning. We watched him grow and learn. We saw him defy stereotypes by showing even kittypets can be strong, he rooted out Tigerclaw's assassination plot, and in the end, he died defending the clan he built. It's a very tragic end for him, but I wouldn't want it any other way. If Firestar died before the great battle, it would've felt rushed and forced, as a way to have a new character take up leadership in their time of need. If he had died after, it wouldn't have the same emotional impact.
It's not just another casualty of war. It's the death of the main character, who we've followed for 24 books.

He should not have died, I hate how whenever the story line gets dull, the author just takes another life from him to spice things up, his lives were just wasted away for entertainment while other leaders stayed in leadership much longer and lost lives much slower. Firestar is awesome and deserves a tenth life. - Songwind

The beloved character since booked one ceases to exist.

4 Mapleshade's Life Story

No matter what she did, her life is still sad

She lived the saddest life ;-; - Emberflight_of_StormClan

I agree! It's actually really sad,

The saddest moments!

5 When Bluestar Gives Up Her Kits For The Sake Of ThunderClan

She saves ThunderClan, but gives up her own happiness for it.

Darn you Thistleclaw! - Aquastar_of_DewClan

Poor kits! I would feel horrible if my own mother gave up on me. -no offense Bluestar

so heartbreaking

6 Gray Wing's Death

Oh my goodness. I was sobbing in my closet. it was so sad. We saw him go from the mountains to die because of asthma. It's so sad! He saved Star Flower, even when he could have died, cared for Clear Sky no matter the numerous things Clear Sky did (and steal Gray Wing's ladies like, Storm x Grays Wing forever. Don't worry, I love Turtle x Gray). But he died, he died, he died. I was sobbing when he died, and then when I finished Dawn of the Clans. YOU FINISH THE GREATEST WARRIOR SERIES AND THE MAIN CHARACTER JUST DIES. ERINS?!?!?!?

I had never cried because of a book or movie(that I can remember), until this scene.

This was the only thing in Warriors that made me cry, except for Blue star dying. It was so sad! He had cats that felt like his kits, but when he actually has them, he only got to be with them for a moon! Clear Sky/Skystar does not deserve him as a brother, especially after everything he did to Thunder.

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

7 Brightheart Being Mauled by Dogs

I felt so bad for her because at first every cat didn't even want to look at her

I hate the dogs for this, it made me even more of a cat person. Cloudtail's devotion to her is so cute though, because you think of him as an arrogant, ignorant young warrior until you see his soft side for Brightheart. - Songwind

I was SO sad! Brightheart was my favorite character! And then the stupid dogs come and ruin everything! :'(

Aah! I felt more scared than sad though. - CatMote

8 When Feathertail Dies

I was so confused because I didn't know what to expect of this new book and this was the first book I ever read and I was so sad cause shes my second favorite cat and I was so confused and then it seemed like Stoneteller didn't care and after that I was addicted to warriors from third grade on

She was the cat I cried the most for. Usually tears just stay in my eyes, but they were running down my face! I couldn't think about anything else at school.

You got to love the fact that Crowfeather named himself after her.

Only time I cried from the warriors series that didn't involve Bluestar

9 Yellowfang Dies in the ThunderClan Fire

Soooo sad she died saving the Clan she had just joined, what really killed me was Firestar’s reaction - FrostfeatherofSnowClan

Yellowfang, we will always remember you. You where amazing. Love, love, love.

Yellowfang was a great medicine cat WHY FIRE WHY?

SHhITT I cried so hard during this, especially when Firestar (Fireheart then) talked to her in her final moments, Yellowfang was like family to me. - CatMote

10 When Sandgorse, Tallstar's Father Dies

I feel so bad like most cats talltail could have turned evil but luckily he didn't I don't want another brokenstar

Sandgorse was a total jerk and abandoned his son because his son didn't want to be like him, if you ask me, he was just trying to take out his anger by rebelling and going into the tunnels that day. It was almost happy when he died for me, I was like 'that jerk is gone for good! YES' - Songwind

The last thing they did together was fight. If that's not a sad death, I don't know what is. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Just the fact that Sandgorse never forgave Tallstar before he died.

The Contenders

11 When Graystripe goes into Riverclan

I cried more at this than when Silverstream died.

I hate this, he should have stayed in Thunderclan and fought for the kits. He broke Fireheart's heart and caused himself a lot of grief too. - Songwind

I was depressed till he came back.

This was so sad I cried so hard I said out loud no greystripe noo peas don't!

12 When we learn that Leafpool died between books

What about when Squirrelflight thinks about leafpool and their memories together. Most emotional I've been all my life

Honestly this should be way higher. I loved Leafpool ever since I started reading that part of the series. Why couldn't the Erins kill Mistystar, Graystripe, or even ' Cloudtail instead. The worst part was Jayfeather's emotions with this scene. The bonus scene in Lost Stars was really touching and it shows that you're loved ones are always with you. I feel pity for Jayfeather, losing his sister and then, a few years later, losing his mother.

She’s a main character! And you kill her in between books. It’s not fair - FrostfeatherofSnowClan

I hate rocks

13 When Willowbreeze And Crookedstar's Kits Die Of Sickness

I was heartbroken when I read this. Like, I could feel it shattering inside my chest.

Curse you mapleshade why did you have To make Crookedstar's life miserable

This is so horrible, Crookedstar has suffered so much just for his mate and kits to die. Then they kill Silverstream later, I mean what? Why? - Songwind

I'm shook, this scene made me tear up so badly during class I- - CatMote

14 Jayfeather leaves Half Moon

They should so have been a couple, they really loved each other and no one understands or knows about Jayfeather's pain and grief over having to leave half moon - Songwind

"I'll always for you Jay's Wing."

Noo! Why, oh why, So sad!

so sad

15 When Cinderpelt Died

I was just too sad

She should haved been a warrior

Cinderpelt is awesome it’s so sad how she dies
Go cinderheart


16 Twigkit and Violetkit's first gathering when they get split up

I literally has tears coming, poor kits

This scene was the only scene I cried on. So sad.

Rowanclaw/star is so evil

At last the kits understood what was happening. Violetkit began to wail in a shrill voice and lashed out helplessly with her tiny paws.
"No! No! Don't take her! " Twigkit screeched, flinging herself against Rowanstar's leg and raking her claws through his pelt.
"Alderpaw! Help me! " Violetkit begged. "I want to go home! I want Lilyheart! "
Dangling from his jaws, Violetkit twisted around so that she could still see her sister.
"Twigkit! Twigkit! " she kept on calling until she vanished from Alderpaw's sight.
The little gray kit had collapsed into a heap, letting out a desolate mewling. Alderpaw bent over and licked her head and ears. "Don't be sad, little one," he murmured. "We'll look after you. And you'll see Violetkit again, when you're old enough to come to Gatherings."
"But it's not the same," Twigkit whimpered. I want Violetkit now! And what will she do without Lilyheart? "

17 Snowfur's death

This made me cry so much! I felt so bad for Whitekit!

Snowfur...and Bluefur had to explain it all to Whitekit!

Snowfur was angry and wanted to be a warrior again, she should have stopped at the thunderpath, the Shadowclan cats had already fled back to their own territory and there was no need to run out on to the thunderpath. Bluefur's refusal to accept her death afterwards is absolutely heartbreaking. - Songwind

This was the saddest! She was my favorite! And I watched the youth video of her and I cried! Even reading the book! Poor Bluestar seeing her own sister get run over by a monster! Also Thistleclaw became bad after that! At least Snowfur is with her niece in StarClan which was Bluestar’s kit that froze to death and Snowfur is also with her mom! And her mom is with her daughter and granddaughter! So we can at least look at the bright side of things!

18 Jackdaw's Cry and Falling Feather kill each other

In that battle every single one of my favorite cats died

This was a breaking point for me...littermates killing each was very sad and when thye forgave each other in starclan that touched my heart too *sniffles* - CreamstripeOfButterClan

19 Badgerfang's Death

I almost cried at this.. Badgerfang should've still been a kit in the nursery.

Sad boi time

I cried two times! This is 100% saddest warriors moment EVER!
It’s sooo underestimated

20 When Crookedstar Talks To Silverstream For The First Time

#sad! But so cute, too

He knows what its like to be abandoned so why does he abandon Silverstream?

I feel so sad that he didn’t to her sooner

21 Snowkit's death

I cried, it was so sad! I still get testy when I think about it too much

I cried harder here than I did any other moment, just because of Brackenfur trying to save him and chasing the hawk even after it was gone. so sad.

She was killed by a DUMb STUIPD HaWk I hate hawks now!

I cried so hard, Snowkit was my favorite kit tied with Whitekit (Whitestorm) - RedTheGremlin

22 When Swiftpaw died and Brightheart was mauled.

Brightheart is one of my favorite characters and I think Swiftpaw would have made a good warrior if Bluestar didn't go crazy and he hadn't died. (I still would have wanted Cloudtail and Brightheart together though)

Swift paw is my fave (along with firestar and spotted fur) I cried so much, I personally don't like brightheart that much rn but it might change SO SAD ABOUT MAH BABY SWIFT PAW though - CreamstripeOfButterClan

23 Bluestar naming Brightheart Lostface

I understand why she would name her this, it was Brighthearts Actions and desicion to attack the dogs with Swiftpaw, but still Bluestar don’t be the feline nameing cats for there actions

24 Hollyleaf's Real Death


She sacrificed herself for Ivypool, my ultimate favorite character in books in general!

This made me cry a lot because Hollyleaf was my ultimate favorite character. I loved reading parts with Hollyleaf in it for no reason and it made me cry when she died. Especially when she forgives Leafpool, that was very heart-touching. I had a feeling of melancholy when she died! You are my one true favorite cat in the whole Warriors series, Hollyleaf!

It's so sad when she forgives Leafpool. "I couldn't leave without getting to know my mother..." So sad! I think this was a well carried out scene, but depressing too.

Watch buy the stars

25 Millie Being Cruel and Rude To Blossomfall

Blossomfall deserved better! I wish she had someone like... (Can't think of any actual kind cats) Y'know, anyone but Millie

This part in the book angered me SO MUCH. Blossom fall is just an ordinary cat that wants her mother to notice her! YEs, I agree, Briarlight's injury is SO SAD. But shouldn't she pay attention to her other kit? It was all Millie's fault Blossomfal joined the Dark Forest! DIE MILLIE! SILVER STREAM WAS BETTER THAN YOU!

This one really hits home for me personally, I really felt bad for Blossomfall when I read that. - CatMote

OHMIGOD! I almost quit the warrior series after this. Blossomfall is a poor young she cat desperate for her mother to notice her. She went to the darkforest because of Millie! I cried when she was in the tunnels with Ivypool and she said that she hated herself for hating briarlight. How could you blame her for it?! Millie should stop being so unfair and open her eyes to see what an amazing daughter blossomfall is. Silverstream would never have done that if she lived!

26 Cinderpelt getting hit by a Monster

So sad! It breaks my heart thinking of The warrior she could have been.

So sad! I almost cried!

27 Mosskit's death

This is probably one of the ONLY deaths that made me cry, in ANY book. - DragonFire1o

Stupid Erin! I LOVE 💘Mosskit!
I was reading in class, then I started crying silently but my eyes were not blood shot.
I wanted to Erin in the BUTT SO HARD THAT SHE CRIED! I do like her, but she can be SOOO difficult! 1st, she likes snow fur, then moss kit?! Come on!
Splashstar of AquaClan

28 When Snowfur Dies and Bluefur Has to Tell Whitekit About It

I was already crying at this point, but then later that day I saw an animation on YouTube of it, and it made my depression even worse

That was so sad. A kit shouldn't have to go through that D:

One of the only times I cried while reading Warriors. I was just heartbroken while I read this scene 😭

29 When Crowfeather attempts suicide to be with Feathertail
30 When Mistyfeather loses Scarkit and Riverkit, having only two kits left.
31 When you find out Yellowfang was Brokenstar's mother, then kills him.

WHAT!?!? How is gray being captured by towlegs more sad than this!? Yellowfang killed him because she sort of had too... but Graystripe has no choice. Yellow though did. She did what was best. though she was definitely sad she did it anyway! Sobs.

How is Graystripe being taken by Twolegs more sad than this? This is way more sad.

It was so sad to find out she was holding back from her kin, then to tell him right before he dies.

I cried so hard!


32 When Moonflower dies

I feel so sorry for Bluepaw and Snowpaw! They loved Moonflower so much!

So sad! Poop Bluepaw (Star) and Snowpaw (Fur)

Welp.My YouTube channel name is Moonflower kitti. - Moonwish

33 When Raggedstar Kills His Own Father And You Find Out He Was Also The Father Of Red

Poor Red. She must have been devastated.

34 The Badger Attack
35 When Rusty tells Smudge that he's leaving to become a Clan cat

Wasn’t THAT sad for me. BUT! I sorta wish that Smudge came with FireStar to the clans. I wanna see what type of warrior he would be,and what his name would be also.

36 Stick (Red's Father) Killing Red
37 Mapleshade's Story.

The only time I cried in all of Warriors.

She had such a nice life then it was ruined by Appledusk and so many other cats. I cried so much wah

38 Ashfur's suffering

So true
I understand AshFur, I know how being broken hearted fells like

39 Palebird (In General)

Nobody knows what her problem is, but she has one big problem.

40 Dark Forest Battle
41 The clans leaving the forest when it's destroyed

This too oml - CatMote

42 When Gray Stripe is Taken by Twolegs

Graystripe should be leader now not bramblebutt

I cryed so hard!

43 Hollyleaf Sacrifices Herself for Ivypool

//ugly crying - CatMote

44 Stonefur's death

that was just depressing

45 When Bluestar Goes Insane

I for one think this is just sad, she had so much to live for... BUT! I feel like HollyLeafs attempt to kill leafpool was even more sad, Dear god love your mother!

It's really deppressing when you remember how happy and king she was. It leaves you thinking, “ Damn! Things really went south! ”

46 Turtle Tail's Death

One of the only deaths I've cried over...I loved turtle tail so much - CreamstripeOfButterClan

47 Snowkit
48 Birdflight and kits joining ThunderClan when Cloudstar left
49 When Sandgorse and Tallpaw(star) argues after almost drowning in the tunnel
50 When Hollyleaf gives up her life for Sandstorm to be with Firestar

Wasn't that Spottedleaf? - DragonFire1o

I felt so heartbroken when one of my favorite cats left the stars ;-;
