Top Ten Things Wrong With Warrior Cats

I LOVE the Warrior Cats series. It's a very good series, but there are things wrong with it. Here are some of them. I'm sorry if this list is kinda inacurrate

The Top Ten

1 Erin Hunter not giving Hollyleaf a power just because they couldn't think of a power for her

I know right?!? It's so annoying and just plain rude. Hollyleaf deserved it so much more! Dovewing, well...she was a waste of space.

YES! Hollyleaf deserved it way more. Dovewing did nothing but fight beavers, and she didn't really contribute all that much except figure out they were there.

I know a power: HER HUNTING IS SO GOOD SHE NEVER MISSES (duh, why didn't they think of that? )

Yeess! Dovewing totally ducked, and Hollyleaf would be much better! I wish Stupid ugly Dovewing died in the Battle instead of amazing Hollyleaf.

2 ThunderClan always being the hero while other clans especially ShadowClan are always the enemies

ShadowClan is my favorite Clan! There's no reason to let ThunderClan always have the spotlight. It should change to another Clan every series or so, not JUST the special editions.

I know right! So annoying! Why is ThunderClan always perfect? - Snowpelt

This is something I really agree with. When Bramblestar was checking on the other Clans in Bramblestar's Storm, ShadowClan had said they didn't need ThunderClan coming in, thinking they would help or " save " everyone. ShadowClan didn't need ThunderClan's interference. I think it was right of them to say that. ThunderClan brought back WindClan and saved ShadowClan from the nearby rogues and badgers, even though I don't think this should've been included in the way it was. For RiverClan fans who agree with this, they can say Crookedstar was the one who sheltered the ThunderClan cats after the fire destroyed the forest. At one of the Gatherings in when Bluestar was still in distress for choosing the deputy position over Mistystar and Stonefur, she reminded WindClan for the dept they owed for bringing them back to their home. WindClan angrily questioned if they should be ran by ThunderClan just for bringing them back again. This is when RiverClan and ShadowClan form a small alliance with ...more

3 Dovewing being the third cat when she did almost nothing

Dovewing just obsessed over this guy she liked. Every other cat in the entire kriffing SERIES actually did something. (Excluding Silverstream and Spottedleaf) - RiverClanRocks

Let's be real, she's just thrown in for more unnecessary token romance and drama...

I hate Dovewing

Dovewing just do something chose bumlestripe or tigerheart! Make yourselt more than a hollyleaf replacement! (which you are )

4 Erin Hunter brought back Hollyleaf just to kill her in the next book

This pissed me off so hard when I found out (through spoilers) that I actually refused to read the rest of the books. Why give her all of that development just to kill her off again? Lazy writing?

What was that for I thought it was going to be better. But once you think about it what did she every come back in the first place and Hawkfrost that kills her why not Tigerstar

Let's bring back a good character only to kill her two books later! Yay!... - RiverClanRocks

I smashed the book against the wall. It doesn't make sense

5 Too many forbidden couples

The forbidden couple is an annoying trope in general. What makes it even worse is how cats never get any sort of punishment for it. A good example is Leafpool. She ruined the lives of other cats, and what happens? Nothing! And that's just one example. It happens too many times to count. It's almost like the writers are running out of ideas so they grip onto the same thing over and over.

- this is very, very repetitive. when I read a new warriors book, I often sense a possible future relationship, a very repetitive plot, cats from other clans with cats from other clans together. There might not even be a definitive sign, but you just know something forbidden or "special" is to happen ( says the repeating plot and character development and " last book problem resolved " kind of thing). So,...have alll the kits you want cats, "totally not forbidden and not known of" - sorry for long text, had to be quite honest

UGH YES. Why can't the cats just follow the warrior code? - RiverClanRocks

Yes! Yes, yes, yes! Basically, it goes like this:
Cat 1: Hey, random cat at the Gathering! I'm Cat 1.
Cat 2: Growl! Other Clans aren't as good as--
Cat 1: You don't have to be so rude. We matter, too, and blah blah blah blah--
Cat 2: Wow! You melted my heart of gritty sand! I love you now. Meet at the border?
Cat 1: Why of course, Cat 2!
~One week passes~
Cat 1: Hey, Cat 2! Guess what?
Cat 2: What?
Cat 1: We're cats, we're wild, I'm pregnant with your child!
Cat 2: Whaat?! This can't be!
~Predictable stuff ensues~

The worst part? The cats fall in love upon sight, know each other for about five or six minutes, and suddenly it's considered the authors' favorite pairing that you must ship.
And you're not helping, people who say things like:
"Silver-bae died for true love! if u don't share mai opinon, u h8 people who dy in childbirth! People irl dyyeyeye (spelled wrong on purpose) from dat! 1! don't u care? ////? "
Yes, I do care. ...more

6 Ashfur being accepted by StarClan

Ashfur tries to kill four cats, yet is in StarClan. Thistleclaw kills no one yet is in the dark forest.

Thistleclaw is a pedophile. He was romantically interested in Spottedleaf when she was a young apprentice and manipulated her. He was the reason why she turned from a warrior apprentice to a med. cat apprentice

Yes, Squirrelflight admitted she didn't feel the same way about him as he did about her. And yes, that is a reason to feel bad. But no, that is not a reason to try and kill your ex's children.

He tried to kill four cats.

End of story.

7 Firestar being part of almost every prophecy

Formula for when the series gets too boring: Battle, prophecy, Firestar wins. - RiverClanRocks

I hate this so much WHY is Firestar so important. WHY did he have to be part of everyone?! He can hardly fight!


Come on Erin Firestar is an important cat almost every prophecy the power of 3 one shouldn't involve Firestar. Lets review Spottedleaf Cinderpelt and Skywatcher-Duskstormofthuunderclan

8 Spottedleaf stalking Firestar even though she's dead

Exactly. Spottedleaf sucks, and Sandstorm did something useful. - RiverClanRocks

*big breath* SPOTTEDLEAF ONLY LOVED FIRESTAR WHEN YELLOWFANG JOINED THUNDERCLAN! I will kill you a THIRD time SpottedLeaf if you go near Firestar again! He loved you and you didn't feel the same! Even though he's AWESOME AS HECK

Disturbing...Just Disturbing - PopcornPelican

Spottedleaf pisses me off so much. Like, GET OFF FIRESTARS ASS LIKE GOD DAMN!

9 Impossible genes

They should've studied biology, or at least read a couple books about cats. - RiverClanRocks

Yep. I've seen a ton of these of the Wikia. One of them being Shellheart ( dappled gray tom ) X Rainflower ( pale gray she-cat ) apparently equals Crookedstar ( light brown tabby tom ) and Oakheart ( reddish brown tom ) There is also Larksong ( tortoiseshell she-cat ) X Flamenose ( ginger tom ) equals Featherwhisker ( gray tom ) There's Skystar ( pale gray tom ) X Storm ( gray tabby she-cat ) equals Thunderstar ( ginger tom with a white splash ) There's Stagleap ( dark brown tom ) X Wrenflight ( brown she-cat ) which equals Ashfoot ( gray tom ) There's Mistmouse ( brown she-cat ) X Hareflight ( brown tabby tom ) equals Ryestalk ( gray tabby she-cat ) Dawn Mist ( Yellow-and-ginger tabby she-cat ) X Moss Tail ( dark brown tom ) equals Drizzle ( gray-and-white she-kit ) This might come from the mother's or father's parents ( So sorry if I keep saying Dovewing and Ivypool's father might be Ashfur because I checked and it's confirmed that their father is Birchfall )


10 Cats being able to talk within days of birth

It does make sense cause cats meow like a day after birth.
Meow, Meow!
Milk, Milk!

If cats could talk if would take ages for them to learn how to talk.


The Newcomers

? For some reason the clans aren't united into one clan even though it would end all the drama in the series and make the group stronger.
? The Dirtplace

This was my biggest problemo. Cats are clean animals, I know because I have one. WHO is cleaning up the dirtplace?!?!? Not them! After awile, it would smell so bad and be so full of uh dirt that they wouldn't want to go there!

The Contenders

11 Mapleshade going to the dark forest

Yes, and ASHFUR gets to starclan, what type of nonsense is this?

12 Names that don't make sense

Billystorm is a great name, you do know that a Billy Club is a deadly weapon, don't you

Personally, I think there are a lot of repetitive possibilities with names (hey, I have an OC named Stormstorm). Mumblefoot? Harveymoon? My personal favorite...Daisytoe. "Oh wow! A daisy near my foot! IT MUST BE A SIGN."

The all ready existing names kind of work but hear is a list of possible names that don’t make sense (based off the all ready existing names) FeatherFeather, LeafLeaf, StarStar, FrostFrost, WindWind, and my personal favorite RavenRaven

Harveymoon(If I remembered it right)Um...
Whorlpaw UH WHAT.
Mumblefoot Like you just can't say: "Okay, I'll just name you Mumblekit! "

13 A very repetitive plot

One day in _________ Clan...
Tom: I love you!
She-cat: But I can never be with you *knows she'll end up with him anyway*
She-cat+Tom: *touch noses*
Moons later...
Tom: Hmm I say we give them to your clan:(
She-cat: Nuu can't leave u! :'(
She-cat: *has kits*
Tom: *goes back to _____Clan*
Kit 1: Mommy where's my dad?!
She-cat: *depressed.

14 StarClan is biased

Mapleshade: Had a harsh life, and killed cats out of fury. I mean, her kits drowned, her mate rejected her, her Clan rejected her, and she had nowhere to go.
StarClan: Whelp, lol, Dark Forest for you! See ya!

Ashfart: Went insane due to getting dumped by Squirrelflight, and attempted to murder her family, also helped plot to kill Firestar.
StarClan: Welcome to StarClan! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

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

Whey even have snowkit then?

That was depressing

16 The Warrior Code is broken so many times

Cat 1: I'm gonna go marry this hawt cat from another Clan even though the law says not to. DERP
Cat 2: I LOVE you BABEH! *chases after cat 1*
Cat 1: We'll live happily ever after! Yay! - RiverClanRocks

I totally agree and Thundeclan has BROKEN the Warrior Code more times than I can remember. Why can't most cats follow the rules of the forest. I still don't und understand why did their ancestors even lay out the laws in the first place if every warrior we now has broken it! I can list nurmerous cats that have broken the Warrior Code:


Those are some rule-braking cats though I bet there's more out there.

17 Bizarre matings
18 Names like FeatherFeather are possible

It makes absolutely no sense at all! None! Also, names like StormStorm, StarStar, ClawClaw, WingWing, LeafLeaf, and CloudCloud are possible.

19 Graystripe still thinks Mistystar is his daughter, who's actually his cousin in law that is older than him

Dude graystripe. Mistystar was a warrior when you were a kit

For me Mistystar is just like Feathertail and Stonefur is just like Stormfur.But,Sorry Erin but that mistake was ridiculous - cassiabez

20 Erin Hunter confused Thistlepaw, Sedgepaw and Swallowpaw's genders

Yes. Sedgepaw is a she-cat and now a tom. I mean SERIOUSLY

Don't forget Rowanclaw!

21 Firestar is somehow related to Tigerstar

Yes he is and he is half-brother to FRIKKEN SCOURGE WHY WORLD!

No he's not

22 So many cats in thunderclan

Yes, I mean there must be like 40 or so now, I'm hoping for a huge purge in The Raging Storm because its getting ridiculous and I don't think the authors can keep track of them, let alone the readers.

23 Bloodclan


24 No gay couples

top gay couples I ship
1. Jake and Tallstar
2. Ivypool and Blossom fall
3. Dovewing and Briar light
4. Sasha and Leopardstar
5. Whitestorm and Tigerstar

25 Cats changing genders

Well Shellheart did. - cassiabez

26 Hawkfrost is ugly

Yeh. If I were in the warriors world, I'd claw his ears off.

I hate him after killing Hollyleaf I even call him Dorkfrost because he is stupid. They shouldn't have added him, and if they did then BRAMBLESTAR IS DA BEST :D he killed him. I wish Hawkfrost would just vanish

27 Why is there even a Dark Forest

Sending cats to dark forest makes everything even worse

28 Too Predictable

By the way read my username and my profile picture. :3 - WarriorCatsHater

29 The leaders lose their lives too often.

Firestar and Bluestar both died it is so sad but to be honest they would basically die of age nine times and suffer it all so it does make sense

30 WAY too many books, not enough story!

Man, it got repetative. Too many cats, too much drama, no sense. If u want a good read, try wings o fire. Same style of writing, but a more interesting and better thought out story.

The first few books were great, but the Erin’s are just repeating the same old storyline over and over. Quit adding extra pointless books! And yes, read Wings of Fire! It is a great story! #Glorybringerrules

31 Stupid names for things

Twolegs, Thunderpath, Monsters, Twoleg nests, etc. PLEASE PASS THE BLEACH

32 Firestar dying

Well what's the matter of making him an elder then he move on the Elder's den then we would still see him in the books. - cassiabez

33 The warrior code itself
34 Pinestar is older than Leopardfoot, and her parents

It's just weird! Imagine something like that in real life though...

35 Bluestar's life sucked

Mom killed, Sister killed, gives up kits, tigerclaw/star is a traitor, goes insane, mistyfoot/stonefur hate her, dies by dogs (that is best part of her life technicaly) good afterlife in starclan

36 People like villains for no reason
37 The Erin's not being able to decide on colors (e.g. Crowfeather's eyes, Dovewing's eyes, Scourge's collar, Bone's collar...)
38 Every Single Greencough Death
39 Obvious writing

I mean! Why do you have to write something that is obvious!

40 Everything changes every five minutes.
41 Too many Mary/Gary Sues

Seriously over half the characters...

Ahem ahem *alderheart* ahem ahem

42 The cats speak by meowing

Cats do not simply talk to each other by meowing.
