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

The forest was better then the lake - Sorreltail

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

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.

I agree. Four trees was amazing to me, but... they were slowly dying where they lived forever. If the lived there still- the series would be dead COMPLETELY. Firestar the main character... makes the right choice to leave the forest. Besides. STORM X BROOK FOREVER!

2 Thunderclan shouldn't have turned Mapleshade out

Yeah! Then none of those deaths would have happened, and then Mapleshade could have just been happy. But, she did make for a great villain! - CinderpeltandCinderheart

Poor Mapleshade

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!

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."

3 Hollyleaf dying

YES! Hollyleaf has had a hard life, and she just came back after running away then the next book, she dies. So unfair!

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

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!

4 Tigerstar should have died and one of his sisters live

Then there would be no plot to the books. But, yes, I think one of his sisters should have lived. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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.

5 Firestar loving Spottedleaf

Seriously! It was so disgusting! Spottedleaf was an adult cat, but Fireheart was barely more than a kit. It's DISGUSTING. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

NO. sandstorm is better. she is just so much better! Siren OUT

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

6 Yellowfang should have stopped meeting Raggedstar

I agree - 999Whitemoon

Then brokenstar wouldn't have been born! Yay!

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

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

7 Silverstream's death

This was too tragic..

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 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 If Cinderheart/Cinderpelt thing had been easier

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

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.

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

10 Leafpool being shipped with Mothwing



The Contenders

11 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!

Ok Tigerstar was thinking like a total idiot I mean like he could have lived. - Wolfpelt

12 If Crookedstar had appointed SOMEONE else deputy

Leopardstar was at least a decent leader. The one mistake she made was allying with Tigerstar, but she was young. Leopardstar did many great things for her Clan, and was an interesting character to have while she was around. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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

13 Firestar died

Cats need to die at some point. Besides, Firestar lost all his personality when he became leader. Bramblestar is a great leader, and there need to be more leaders after Firestar. I know he's nostalgic for all of us, but he needed to die at some point. Besides, he head such a heroic death! What more could you want for him? - CinderpeltandCinderheart


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!

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

Snowkit could have been so much more than just a deaf kit. He would have made for an interesting cat in the books! And, if any deaf people read it, it'd encourage them that Snowkit survived. Snowkit was wasted potential. We could have seen him become a great medicine cat, even a warrior! Ugh. The Erins, though, are infamous for throwing away good characters. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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.

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

15 Cinderpelt loving Firestar

We need more platonic relationships in Warriors! Honestly, it should have just been like a teacher-student friendship. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

I know you may not see this, but whoever said she didn't love Firestar is wrong. Last page of River of Fire, A Vision of Shadows. She admits it to Alderheart, son of Squirrelflight and Bramblestar, after he nearly fell in love with a kittypet named Velvet. She said she gave up hope for him ever loving her because of her duty as a medicine cat.

Cinderpelt did love Firestar. Last page of River of Fire.

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.

16 SkyClan getting kicked out

Read AVOS. They're back. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

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

She sould have just gone to a closer ledge and kicked it, the she would not have died :(

Just sad

18 If Bluestar's prophecy didn't exist

NOPE, NOPE - 999Whitemoon

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

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!

19 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.

20 Mapleshade going to the dark forest

She was a not a good cat, she deserved to go there, but she was an interesting character. I think she should have been able to redeem herself in some way, though. She wasn't evil at first, but she definitely didn't deserve to go to StarClan at first. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

Mapleshade did want to be in the Dark Forest. And she wanted blood to rule the forest, so she did 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

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?

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 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

23 Ivypool getting hate



24 Mapleshades kits being thrown out.

YES! You can punish Mapleshade, but not her kits! That's against the warrior code! The kits had no control over it! - CinderpeltandCinderheart

It's actually breaking the warrior code.

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

25 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

26 Scourge and Ashfur Being Shipped.

I don't like this :[

27 Thistleclaw’s death

I believe he did deserve it though, like, he told his own apprentice to attack an innocent kit.

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

28 Feathertail and Crowpaw falling in love.

Sorry if I hate this pairing.

Feathertail shouldn't have loved Crowfeather.

29 The fire destroying the Thunderclan camp

Then the two elders and Yellowfang could have lived

Yellowfang wouldn't have died!

30 The name Maggottail

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


31 Hawkflight's Journey

You mean Hawkwing? - RoseWeasley

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

32 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*

33 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.

34 Midnight Telling Sol the Secrets of the Clans

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

35 Pebbleshine Being Taken Away

That is SO not fair - Nightkillo

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.

36 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.

37 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?!

38 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


39 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?

40 Spottedleaf loving Firestar
41 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

42 Briarlights death

Briarlight was an amazing character, and she was strong, even though her hind legs were paralyzed. It’s unfair that she had to die. It was interesting, knowing a cat who couldn't walk in warriors, but still did great. WHY DID YOU HAVE YO KILL HER OFF ERINS! So unfair. - Diamondleaf88

43 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 😺

44 Feathertail dying

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

45 Scourge Turning Evil

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

And Socks.

46 The cats going to fight the beavers

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

47 Whitestorm Dying

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

48 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.

49 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

50 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?
