Top Ten Saddest Warrior Cats Moments

The Top Ten

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!

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

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.

The beloved character since booked one ceases to exist.

Mapleshade's Life Story

No matter what she did, her life is still sad

She lived the saddest life ;-;

I agree! It's actually really sad,

The saddest moments!

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!

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

so heartbreaking

Gray Wing's Death

I was up at 12 reading this ending, and couldn't hold back the tears. What! Why did you have to kill off Gray Wing, the best "founder" in front of his child, that he just saved! Omg!

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.

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

When Feathertail Dies

I was reading this in class and I had to put the book down before I started crying

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Yellowfang Dies in the ThunderClan Fire

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

Yellowfang was a great medicine cat WHY FIRE WHY?

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

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.

When we learn that Leafpool died between books

The most I've ever cried because of a Warriors book was Leafpool's death in Squirrelflight's Hope. The moment Leafpool decided to stay in StarClan while Squirrelflight decided to go back to ThunderClan, I just had a continuous flow of tears until I finished the book. RIP Leafpool ;-;

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

The Contenders

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'

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

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

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.

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!

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?

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

Jayfeather leaves Half Moon

Staying in the past was really Jayfeather's only chance of having a mate and kits. It was all just taken away from him, which really proves that he can't have anything or make any big decisions for himself, so I can understand why he's so frustrated and upset. Some people call him a brat for trying to get what he wants, but in the end he never really gets what he wants (staying in the past, becoming a warrior, living a normal life). But anyways, enough about Jayfeather, this scene was just really heartbreaking...Jayfeather and Half Moon both want something so bad, but they can't have it. But I really like how Half Moon came back for him in the end. I thought the whole "I'll wait for you forever" thing was really bittersweet and it has so much weight to it. We've seen Half Moon in StarClan before, so she'll probably be there when Jayfeather dies... :3

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

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

Noo! Why, oh why, So sad!

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


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

I felt so bad for violetkit when she had to go to shadowclan

Snowfur's death

I was sobbing :'(

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.

Badgerfang's Death

I dare you to read this without crying.

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

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*

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

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)

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

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

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.

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!

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.
