Top Ten Things That Shouldn't Have Happened In Warrior Cats

Things in the warrior cats universe would have been better without these events! Also has things that could have been done better.

The Top Ten

1 Twolegs shouldn't have destroyed the forest

I like the old territories better than the lake territories. Since this happened, we had to spend our time reading 4 books that basically covered the entire journey there.

Makes me hate humans more than I already do. But we're here to change things, so I ain't gonna be depressing no more.

I miss the old territories... So many memories were made there

God said " Let there be light" and there was light
He looked down upon the earth and saw me, the ugliest twoleg ever.

2 Thunderclan shouldn't have turned Mapleshade out

Agreed. They shouldn't have turned her out. Considering pretty much everyone was in a forbidden relationship, forcing Mapleshade to suffer when others had done so much worse was terrible. That stupid leader was being so biased, too. "My feelings are hurt because of my son, so I'm gonna kick this helpless she-cat out. Yup, I'm a leader."

Mapleshade a traitor, sure, go ahead, exile her. But don't bring her kits into this! They can't control who their parents are. They're being punished for someone's crimes, being sent into exile at only 2 moons and being called 'half-clan creatures'. Which is rather disgusting. - Mellowix

That started the evil chain!

Why can't they exile Leafpool instead because she is a medicine cat? She had done that much worse. They exile Mapleshade just because she mated with a Riverclan cat? Ask Bluestar or Greystripe they did that too!

3 Hollyleaf dying

She made some bad decisions, but she is a great cat. She even forgave her mother after all the terrible things Leafpool did. (Breaking the code, lying, etc)

She did many bad things, but I loved her so much! She deserved to live again, with her friends, brothers, mother and just her clan in general!

Hollyleaf should've never died. I wish it was Lionblaze or Ivypool instead

Ugg, Hollyleaf was honestly a Honorable cat that did almost nothing for her clan except save Ivypool. Although, lots of things wouldn't have happened with out her. She is so overrated and I hate her, I'm glad she died. - BlueberryCatfish

4 Tigerstar should have died and one of his sisters live

Without tigerstar lots of deaths wouldn't have occurred. Also, his sister that lived would have been awesome!

I hate Tigerstar too but I think he should'nt have died instead of his sisters. I mean, I wish both of them alive. It can't have only good cats in warrior cats, right?

Tigerstar should have been the one of Leopardfoot's kits to die, and both of his sisters living.

I would disagree with this. Tigerstar is the biggest villain in the series. Even if many cats would not have died if he died, he still an important part. Fireheart wouldn't have been suspicious of anything, Darkstripe wouldn't have allied with anyone, Tawnypelt wouldn't be alive, Bramblestar wouldn't be alive, Mothwing and Hawkfrost and Tadpole wouldn't be alive, Goldenflower would have a different mate, Fireheart probably would have been made deputy earlier, Sasha couldn't mate with him, Ravenpaw probably wouldn't have gone to live with Barley, Redtail might've became Redstar, Runningwind wouldn't be dead... If Tigerstar wasn't alive, none of this would ever happen. As much as people think he is a stupid, bloodthirsty cat, he really developed the series. Like the action in the first series where Tigerclaw was leading rogues to attack ThunderClan. He told Lionpaw in Dark River that, " Friendship is worthless... " If Nightkit or Mistkit had lived, maybe they could've found a way to ...more

5 Firestar loving Spottedleaf

Spottedleaf is like double Firestar's age and barely talked to him before his death. And now she stalks him in his dream! Seriously...I can imagine how irritated Sandstorm was!

Fire star and spotted leaf would have never work, many reasons
1.spottedleaf is and forever be a medicine cat
2.spotted leaf is a medicine cat, the will be breaking the warrior code
3.Spotted is Moons older then Firestar... Imagine a six year old in love with yo grandma - DiamondStarAkaBloodStar

People say that Sandstorm stole Firestar from her although obviously Spottedleaf is trying to steal Firestar away from her

6 Yellowfang should have stopped meeting Raggedstar

Then brokenstar wouldn't have been born! Yay!

Yellowfang and Raggedstar are an OK couple, they should have just been friends, not mates. Then Brokenstar/tail wouldn't have come along! Yay!

Yeah, but it's like saying Tigerstar shouldn't have been born. Then, where would the plot be?
- Lightningstar

I agree - 999Whitemoon

7 Silverstream's death

Then there would be now Millie, and I love Millie. Silverstream was a sweet cat, she had a sad death, but it was best for everyone.

This was too tragic..

This if silverstream didn't die. I'm okay with silverstream not dying,but that wouldmean no briarlight. I like silverstream and briarlight.

8 If hollyleaf hadn't announced the truth at the gathering

She should not have. But, I know Squirrelflight had to tell Ashfur. It was the only way to save their lives. Afterward, she could have at least told them she lied to save them.

I really hated her than. She made leafpool SUFFER! Leafpool is my favorite character!

Hollyleaf overloaded :3 literally with secrets she was... To... I don't know how to put this... Obedient to the warrior code to have that many secrets and leafpool understood so... Ya know shake it off for my second favorite. Character - Catsarah123

Dude, you killed Ashfur, who was going to tell the truth, to announce the truth ANYWAY! Why?! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

I love Hollyleaf so much! She loved the code, and couldn't live with lying to the clans anymore!

9 Tigerstar shouldn't have brought blood clan into the forest

If it didn't happen then Tigerstar would have lived, though. - Kaitlyntunn

That was his biggest mistake and downfall.

He brought bloodclan to the forest. And that's how he died! He caused many deaths with that! Including my baby whitestorm! :(
Anyways scourge took one of firestar's lives.i'm not a big fan of firestar, but it was still sad!

BloodClan should have never come into the forest

10 If Crookedstar had appointed SOMEONE else deputy

Why does everybody hate Leopardstar, she was a great lead, she let ThunderClan take refuge when their camp was on fire. She appointed Mistyfoot as her deputy because she felt sorry for her because she had watched her brother die. But I would like people to name one bad thing that any leader hasn't done except for joining Tigerstar. - BlueberryCatfish

But Withought leopardstar there would be no misty star, and I love misty star!

Then lepordstar wouldn't be leader. She's the worst leader that's not EVIL

Leopardstar wasn't a bad leader. She should have been picked by Crookedstar, but I love Mistystar the best of the RiverClan cats. Well, her, Stonefur, Stormfur, and Feathertail.

The Newcomers

? Hawk Frost and Bramble Star Meeting

I just don’t understand it… sure there kin but so are tawnypelt and Mothwing Erin Hunter (aka the six people making warriors) didn’t even have them meet! And honestly I don’t get why Hawkfrost and many other’s shared there thoughts even battles for Mudclaw being leader of WindClan I mean there not even his clan. It would barely affect them other than Mudclaw leading them into a bunch more battles. And one other thing when ash fur and hawk frost set a trap for Firestar ash fur also said “this was a test tigerstar knew you were never to be trusted” but seriously why even pick him up and help make him deputy if you didn’t trust him! But I’m getting off topic. I just don’t like it

? Ivypool getting hate


The Contenders

11 If Cinderheart/Cinderpelt thing had been easier

Yeah... What happens when cinderheart dies? Does she become cinderpelt or something? And if she does... Would that make her cinderpelt or cinderheart?

Cinderpelt should have gone to StarClan at her death, not gone into Cinderheart. I'm glad Cinderheart is her own warrior now though, not thinking she wasn't mean to be a warrior.

Yeah... I mean it's gonna be kinda awkward in StarClan. But I'd still want Cinderheart to be born, she's like my sister! - Swiftdawn

How about Cinderpelt goes to StarClan and Cinderheart is her own cat. How's that idea?

12 Firestar died

I HATE SCOURGE now I like firestar cause he killed scrouge TIGERSTAR IS STILL awesome! - Wolfpelt

Actally I like that this happened. It was sad at first but now I realize that he's a player.i liked him as a warrior more than a leader. Plus bramblestar would never be leader and I love him!

Firestar shouldn't have died but truth is, he led Thunderclan for long enough. It was the right time for him to go

13 Snowkit dies just to move Speckletail to the elders' den

Talk about ruined character potential. It would of been amazing to see the development of a deaf cat adapting Clanlife. If the Erins have the ability/skill to write a blind a blind character, they can write a deaf character, it just takes a bit of research and planning. Reducing a deaf kit's death as a way to move forward a subplot of a very minor character is lazy and possibly offensive. - Mellowix

Well, she wanted to think her kit was perfect, absolutely perfect. Like there was nothing wrong with him and he'd be the best at whatever he became. I think lots of queens think like that. Scratch that. Every queen except Rainflower ( well she thought that, formally ) or anyone else who had some reason not to love their kits. I think Fireheart or someone else asked him something and he replied, " S'all again? " I don't know. Haven't read that in awhile. But yes he was caught by eagles and died. And then... Speckletail, with extreme kit depression, becomes an elder. Considering Snowkit was an only kit, he was spoiled. When Speckletail found out her son was deaf, she snapped. She even tried teaching Snowkit a little bit before he was carried off. But there are a LOT more cats that have gone through worse with kits. One of the most obvious. Bluestar! Her kits, Mistystar and Stonefur, were given up. Bluestar's ambition forced her to take the life of a deputy and eventually leader. ...more

Snowkit could've been an amazingly developed character. A deaf kit with a very worried mother, growing up in ThunderClan during a dangerous time? That's something I'd LOVE to read. But they just had to kill him in order to put Speckletail in the elders' den! What a wasted potential! I wanna write an alternate-ending fanfic for Snowkit...

Snowkit NEVER died. SNOWTUFT people! Princess saved Snowkit. Brackenfur trained him at dark, he went to darkforest, he walked to StarClan and darkforest border, saw ferncloud, Speckletail, and firestar, reunited and joined StarClan. BOOM! Now offense, I read the books.

14 Leafpool being shipped with Mothwing


15 If Bluestar's prophecy didn't exist

I can't imagine that. Bluestar's Prophecy is my favorite (and only) Super Edition.

The actual prophecy, not the book. Then she wouldn't have to give up her KITS!

Mosskit is my baby, so I would appreciate if Bluestar's prophecy didn't happen because then my poor little girl wouldn't have died and neither would Stonefur - Swiftdawn

NOPE, NOPE - 999Whitemoon

16 SkyClan getting kicked out

YES! I read dawn of the clans first and I was so sad when I realised there was no sky clan!

SkyClan is better in the gorge, that's just the way that is.


17 Feathertail Dies

Just sad

18 The tree falling on thunder clan camp

1 death, 1 injure and a destroyed camp... A lot of destruction for one little tree!

That was sad! Longtail shouldn't have died and Briarlight shouldn't have been paralyzed! She teaches a lot of courage this the tree we are talking about?

That should not have happened. Then Briarlight would have had a better future.

19 Mapleshade going to the dark forest

She doesn't deserve to go to the dark forest

She definitely deserved to go there. But it would have never happened if it weren't for her stupid clan kicking her out. - BlueberryCatfish

She so deserves to be, after betraying her Clan! I feel sorry for her kits, and her kits only!

Mapleshade killed for to much love for her kits she also got kicked out of thunderclan.Ashfur was about to kill for to much love and he went to starclan.Then why not Mapleshade?

20 Cinderpelt loving Firestar

There's almost no platonic relationships in warrior cats so it annoyed me when I found out Cinderpelt loved Firestar. No offense to CinderXFire lovers.

Cinderpelt never loved Firestar. I don't want to be rude, but ACTUALLY READ THE BOOKS.

21 Dovewing being born

Yeah, she had no use in the slightest. She was used to make a dumb love triangle! Ivypool and Hollyleaf did more than she did, Hollyleaf deserved that spot! DIE DOVEWING!


22 Blossomfall going to the Dark Forest

Wait, what? Blossomfall didn't go to the Dark Forest. This was confirmed in Dovewing's Silence. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Blossomfall didn't deserve to go there! At least she finally realized her loyalties lay with ThunderClan.

Not Every apprentice how once trained in the Dark forest is going to the Dark forest,Also she's not evil anough to go there

Every shouldn't be capitalized, no offense but incorrect grammar and typing is my biggest pet peeve. And it should be "forest, also," no capital and a space. - Swiftdawn

23 Cats with impossible genes

I honestly don't get why people get in such a fuss over genetics. It's fictional children's book, people! You don't complain about Scar's colouring being impossible in the Lion King, so why should Warrior Cats have to be different? - Miststar

24 Scourge and Ashfur Being Shipped.

I don't like this :[

25 Feathertail and Crowpaw falling in love.

Sorry if I hate this pairing.

Feathertail shouldn't have loved Crowfeather.

26 The fire destroying the Thunderclan camp

Then the two elders and Yellowfang could have lived

Yellowfang wouldn't have died!

27 Mapleshades kits being thrown out.

I mean, three kits. Any three kits could have been trouble. But no. Some three specific kits right now, why not those three! Innocent little kits, kicked out. They didn't do evil! Ravenwing is as bad as tigerclaw, kicking out halfbloods. Yeesh. -dawnheart

28 The name Maggottail

What horrible cat named him? Imagine naming your child Maggot. - Emberflight_of_StormClan


29 Hawkflight's Journey

I haven't the vaguest idea what happens in the book, and I read it through.

This is what happened:

Pebblepaw and Duskpaw are burning aiee aiee
Hawkwing saves pebblepaw
Hey brother plays while he sees Duskpaw's dead body
In the middle of the song
Badger attack
Darktail murders people
Sharpclaw is also murdered by Darktail
Hawkwing: daddy no
Someone dies
Some other person dies and Hawkwing screams
Hawkwing is now in a relationship with Pebbleshine
Pebbleshine is taken away
Someone dies
Several other cats die
Some twoleg thinks he's better than cats
Some guy screams for 14 minutes because someone died then he died
An hour later someone died
Hawkwing: everyone died

30 Breezepelt doesn't die

He should have! He really should have!

He actually shouldn’t, his father made him the way YOU think! CrowFeather didn’t love him. He loved leafpool and her kits! It isn’t his fault he turned that way, hollyleaf and him are just... lonely.

31 Midnight Telling Sol the Secrets of the Clans

If she didn't do that, sol wouldn't be a threat. Frusterating.

32 Bloodclan is pointless


Why can’t you just make Tigerclan fight Lionclan in an epic, chapters-long brawl instead of pulling in a third wheel? The battle of two would be better than three.

33 Dovewing and Firestar Shouldn’t Being in Power of Three

Dovewing is my favorite, but she gets... dumb. Her sister Ivypool or hollyleaf should be in this. firestar, is in a prophecy already! FIRE WILL SAVE OUR CLAN! He is in many prophecies, actually. Ivypool and hollyleaf should be In instead!

I'm sorry, no offense, and this might seem unintentionally rude. But Hollyleaf needs a capital letter because it's a name. Also the letter after a period should be capital letter, please! Firestar needs a capital letter and in your last sentence "in" needs to be lowercase. Finally, "Firestar, is in a prophecy already! " Doesn't make sense. No coma is needed there. But I agree. - Swiftdawn

Swiftdawn I definitely agree but it’s not really that rude to correct grammar it’s helpful actually. -Galaxy Meowth

I’m fine with Dovewing she’s okay but I personally think maybe a cat from the dark forest like Blossomfall, mousewhisker, or even Thornclaw should be it so they realize there loyalty before the great battle and take the rest with them! That way half the clan would’nt hate them. Fire star I’m okay with because he’s the savior of warriors but seriously there was a first prophecy that specified 3 cats then they made a new one! Did StarClan change there mind or something?!

34 Ruby and Socks Being in One Book

Boulder just a plain cat not important at ALL was insome books I think ruby and socks should be in more than one book.-stormpaw


35 Ivypool having kits

Just... NO! She’s a strong, independent woman. If okay with her having sa mate but KITTENS?! Do ALL female cats in ThunderClan need to make babies?

36 Thistleclaw’s death

Too sad

I really think that he didn’t fully deserve to die and go to the Dark Forest. He only acted out on his ambitions and his deep grief for Snowfur

37 Crookedstar banished

He never got banished from his clan.

He should not have been banished but without hem being banished he wouldn't have become leader. -foxfang 😺

38 Feathertail dying

Yeah, then Leafpool and Crowfeather wouldn't have happened and ruined all the harmony between the clans.

39 Scourge Turning Evil

He would have been such a cool cat if it weren't for Ruby!

And Socks.

40 The cats going to fight the beavers

I get that they needed water, but at least get more cats!

41 A cat called maggot tail

Imagin being called maggot kit? A mother must hate there kit if she gave it that name!
Mother: oh! I hate kits, I'm just going to call you maggot kit!
Maggot kit: starts crying
Mother: oh maggot kit! Stop yelling! *walks off to get death berries*

42 Whitestorm Dying

Whitestorm was my fave character. I hate how he dies! I hate that he dies period!

43 Sorreltail dying

I loved Sorreltail, she was the kindest and quietest, all she wanted to do was see her kits😿 I felt so bad for brackenfur.

44 Firestar and Scourge Being Half Brothers

They shouldn’t have, all they’ve done to each other is kill one another! The don't even know that they are half brother’s. So why bother Erin Hunter? That’s just a boring story. (NOT THE SERIES, I LIVE FOR THE SERIES! ) and it’s weird that Jake would mate with two she-cats. That’s just cheating. Sure I’m fine with quince and him, but why a ThunderClan member? That just makes no sense! Why would you mate with a clan cat then stay a kittypet? (ALSO I HATE SPOTTEDLEAF! ) (becuase of fanfiction! You guys writing fan fiction scares the flip outta me. Why make FIREPAW mate with Spottedleaf? ) now, back to the “bro” thing. And why ship Ashfur and Scourge together? (by the way even though they are uncle and niece, I think Squirrelflight should be with Scourge, they both have right white paw’s) I’m done here

45 Firestar being a boy

Why if firestar a boy. I wish he was a girl, he wouldn't have been so mouse brained. don't get me wrong, I love the series, but seriously. Is squirrleflight, ivypool, hollyleaf, and dovewing all erin hunter could do?

46 Pebbleshine Being Taken Away

Pebbleshine was my favorite character in Hawkwing’s Journey, and I don’t really see a reason for her being taken other than so Hawkwing would be depressed. Twigpaw and Violetpaw (probably with different names) would have gotten to the clans anyway.

47 Snowkit shouldn’t have been taken away

Make a decision Erin Hunter, a kit will get taken away, then lives by some KITTYPET, I'm POINTING AT YOU PRINCESS! Princess in her mind: ‘OH IMA LIE THAT FIRESTAR IS MY BROTHER TO SNOW KIT AND LIVE ON! ’ Snowkit then feels betrayed, and then trains with some evil lady cat called mapleshade. Then, he trained with brackenfur in the dark. Than ashfur helped hawkfrost do some silly fox trap, than the stupid fire takes in. ‘Snow tuft’ (snowkit! ) helps make the stupid fire. Than, snow tuft eventually wants to kill firestar. WOW ERIN HUNTER. JUST- LETS GET BACK TO MY STORY. Than sol works with snowtuft, ashfur gets slaughtered by a stone and hollyleaf. Snow tuft tried to kill jayfeather, holly leaf killed snowtuft and everyone’s happy. NOPE, snowtuft died and went to StarClan and darkforests border, he saw firestar, ferncloud, Speckletail, and... who was it... OH, ASHFUR.

48 Spottedleaf loving Firestar
