Top Ten Warrior Cats

The Top Ten

1 Firestar Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet named Rusty.

Firestar is the best kittypet /apprentice/warrior /mentor/leader in all the clans. Instead of just caring for his own clan he helps all the clans. I mean, which other cat could of reconstructed skyclan. I know he appenticed brambleclaw, but I can't remember the tons of other cats he trained. He is most loyal to thunderclan, but he is also somewhat loyal to the other clans as well. Al I have to say is go firestar.

He also mentored cinderpelt when she was an apprentice before the accident and cloudtail

Firestar deserves to live on in the hearts and minds of everyone. He was my favorite character; after his death, I considered abandoning Warriors. I watched him grow up and I watched his heroic death. Why, StarClan? Why was he taken from us? His loyalty is unmatched, his courage the most of anyone, yet he handles his Clan with the makings of a true leader. He was THE greatest cat in the forest. If I wrote Warriors, I would give him another life like Cinderpelt did. Firestar, we all miss you, and your legacy will live on forever or until the forest crumbles into dust.

Firestar is such a cool character. I have no idea why a large portion if the fandom call him a "Gary Stu". He is amazing as a warrior and then as a leader. This is my opinion, but hear me out. He is so caring and compassionate. He cares about keeping all of the Clans safe, but ultimately his loyalties lie completely and utterly with his Clanmates and the cats that he cares about. Especially in Power of Three, he was just so UNDERSTANDING, and was always willing to have private talks with his Clanmates where he'd ask them if they were all right and how they were doing.

Firestar is a good protagonist, and a fine hero. But I believe they should've given another cat's perspective instead of Firestar. I just think he's too obvious of a choice. He had his chance in the first series, but after that, I felt like they dragged him in too many times. Especially being the fourth cat, of course it was Firestar... I'm alright with him, but I'm not the largest fan. The fourth would've been interesting if it was either Ivypool or Hollyleaf, two cats who actually proven themselves of worthy, despite their obvious flaws that made them who they are. I'm just trying to say that Firestar already had his chance of shine, and they should've thought more about giving the limelight for another character with an interesting perspective. He is a good character, just one that is overrated in the books from the NP till the OOTS. (A leader that lasted for too long in a saga.)

2 Jayfeather Jayfeather Jayfeather is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He is part of The Three, along with Lionblaze and Dovewing, and has the power to read other cats' minds and walk into other cats dreams. He is blind.

In the beginning, he was quite whiny. And I wanted to give him a nice slap in the face when he rejected Brigthheart. But he developed the most (visually, Hollyleaf was in the tunnels) out of the Three. He grew to respect others, and just accept the fact he couldn't live the life his siblings lived. I laughed out loud at very retort or snap he made. "Yeah, let's just group up all the useless cats and hope a tree falls on them! " "Next, you'll be telling me that fresher mice taste juicer than stale ones! " Also, I don't mind his stubbornness. I found it hilarious in The Forgotten Warrior when he got caught in a bramble and Ivypool knew not to help, or when he practically tried to murder Brambleclaw for carrying him down the waterfall. (Also, all the times someone pointed out his blindness... My sides hurt afterwards. "Why are his eyes all stare-y? ")
But just reading from Jayfeather's perspective, when he has to rely on scent, smell, taste, and touch is pretty unique. I find it cool ...more

Jayfeather is one of my three favorite cats in the warrior series, along with Gray Wing and Turtle Tail, and I love his sarcasm. I also love the fact that he's stayed that way throughout the series. I feel so bad that he couldn't be mates with Half-Moon.

At first, I hated him. I only saw his awful and grumpy behavior. I found him to be way OP but then something clicked. After 4 books or so I finally started appreciating him and how he has his reasons for being how he is. He lost so much in his life, such as his dream to be a warrior, his whole family turned out to be a lie, and he found out he had been born again, also remembering that the cat he loved had died in ancient history. Can you not feel sorry for him? Sad things aside, if anyone's saying that he doesn't make the best dialogue in the series, they're lying. I can remember so, so, so many times I laughed out loud for his rudeness and grumpyness and smart remarks! Amazing! He is a great medicine cat, even if he needed help from Leafpool and Brightheart sometimes (it really isn't surprising since he lost his mentor very early). He is my favourite Warriors character with his flaws and good parts.

Jayfeather has been my favorite since the 3rd series. He is funny but also grumpy at the same time. HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN WITH HALF MOON!

3 Yellowfang Yellowfang

So many secrets surrounding her! She was the secret of the series! Erins, how did you get the awesome idea of a grizzly she cat who fell in love with Raggedstar and was prepared to risk her position into the clan for him? Then Brokenstar exiles Yellowfang when she's done no wrong. I hope she was happier in Thunderclan than Shadowclan, because I love her. - Mousefur17

Yellowfang look...
"i'm A TREE" - Murphypaw

I love her. She's the sassy grandma and the mother figure to Firestar. I was so sad when she died! I've seen that some people think it was useless that she died saving Halftail, and elder, from the fire. She wasn't just going to let him die! And in my opinion it was a noble death that proved her loyalty: she died trying to save a THUNDERCLAN cat, people.

4 Bluestar Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan

Bluestar was an amazing leader with all the right qualities such as fairness and kindness. She went through so much as a young cat, losing her mother, losing Mosskit, not being able to be with Oakheart, giving her kits away, been almost murdered by her Tigerstar and drowning to her death. She was the one that brought Firestar to the Forrest and without her doing that the Forrest would be gone.

I completely agree with you! The person who gave the reply obviously was WRONG and she had a horrible life. She just snapped. She had the second worse life. Mapleshade being first. that's why Mapleshade was a bit coocoo in the head. Both she cats snapped! - Catsarah123

One of my favorite cats. She was noble and brave. I feel so bad for her, she went through so much! I know she was a grump and was rude and selfish after the battle with Windclan and Moonflower had died, (I hate you, Hawkheart), but really, who could blame her? She was an apprentice and her mother had died! I do not believe it was her fault that Snowfur had died, even though she had upset her and caused her to leave. They both had no idea a monster was there, but I still don't understand why she had to run out onto the Thunderpath. Bluestar also had to experience the death of Mosskit. Poor, poor, kit. If she lived and became a warrior, I think her warrior name would be Mossheart. Bluestar also had to give away her kits, (I really think she should've kept them until greenleaf, but she did the right thing because she knew that Thistleclaw would've destroyed Thunderclan.) I felt really bad for her when she heard that Oakheart had died, (at the beginning of Into the Wild), and when she ...more

She is the best character ever I love her so much when she died I almost wrote a letter to Erin Hunter saying WHY DID YOU MAKE BLUESTAR DIE?! WHY?! She is the best - Leafshade

Went crazy at th end - Sorreltail

5 Hollyleaf Hollyleaf Hollyleaf was one of the rare, strictly loyal cats of ThunderClan. She cherished the warrior code as a kit and came back to her clan in a time of need to fight-- even though she was cast out for killing Ashfur.

I LOVE Hollyleaf more than any other character, even her brothers. She was the most misunderstood cat in the whole series. When she was trapped behind the wall of fire and found out that her birth had broken two codes, medicine and warrior, she was devastated. Ashfur was determined to kill one of the cats Squirrelflight loved most because she chose Brambleclaw over him. He tried to kill Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather because of his jealousy. Hollyleaf was fiercely protective of her brothers and wanted to keep them safe, no matter what. She didn't mean to kill Ashfur, she just meant to keep him from hurting her littermates. She went to attack him and he fell into the river. She knew she couldn't help him, not now- she can't swim! She felt guilty for what she had done and ran away into the tunnels. She came back to her clan just in time for the Dark Forest battle and died saving Ivypool from the savage claws of Hawkfrost. If you people don't consider that loyalty and bravery, I ...more

I am one of the rare people who love both Hollyleaf and Leafpool. For all those people who hate Hollyleaf or Leafpool or both, try putting yourself in their shoes, I respect your opinion and that, but seriously, you guys are so judgemental. Leafpool knew that she had to stay with her clan and that it would be selfish for her to care for her kits, she couldn't care for her clan entirely, when she had to care for kits. Imagine what that would feel like, you had to give up your children, I probably wouldn't be as strong and faithful as Leafpool and would have done the selfish thing and ran away with them. Also, another note, you can't choose who you fall in love with, whether it's from your own clan or it's from a different clan, in Warriors the couples very rarely ever meet. Now, moving onto my favourite character, Hollyleaf. Some people look at Hollyleaf as being a coward or being selfish because she ran into the tunnels to escape and they believe that Hollyleaf ran away to avoid ...more

People don't like Hollyleaf because she killed Ashfur, BUT DARN HE DESERVED IT. Attempted murder because your girlfriend broke up with you after a few weeks of dating? NO WAY. I like her WAY better than DOVEWING. Wouldn't it be cool if she was the third cat? She deserved something more than being shoved in a tunnel and being a "dead" character for a few books by the Erins.

A fierce, strong female character with the strongest love for their religion we've seen so far. She is overall interesting, but so sad too. Can you imagine a person who's dedicated their whole life to their religion finding out they were born a sin? Yeah. That is very bad. No wonder she panicked so badly and did what she did. Both of her deaths made me cry and I really feel like her death wasn't necessary. Why would she even be brought back to the series just to die in the next book? That really disappointed and saddened me. Some people hate her because she killed Ashfur. Well, while I find that quite understandable, can you blame her for being so treathened by him? He wanted to destroy Squirrelflight's and her kits' lives just because Squirrelflight wanted to be just friends? He really was a bad friend for her if you think about it: She was having rough time with her mate so she wanted closeness from a friend. Ashfur made her feel better, but then when his feelings weren't returned ...more

6 Cinderpelt Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She heals other cats in her Clan, ThunderClan, and is reincarnated into Cinderheart.

She shouldn't have died! But she was reborn as Cinderheart, one of Sorreltail's kits. She was gonna be a warrior, but that lazy excuse for a cat Tigerstar had to come and ruin it all! No offense, Tigerstar fans. No one can disagree that she was in love with Firestar. She had a horrible and noble death, trying to help Sorreltail as she gave birth to her kits during the badger attack. She was KILLED by a BADGER! What worse death could there be than THAT?!?! Badgers are officially my least favorite animals.
She was amazing and brave and died the noblest of all deaths (besides Firestar). Stupid badgers! Anyone's mouse brained if they don't think Cinderpelt was the best medicine cat. I love you Cinderpelt!

Cinderpelt is my second favorite medicine cat. Leafpool is my favorite cause she is my favorite character.

I wish she didn't die she was better than Cinderheart - Leafshade

I love Cinderpelt! She could have been a warrior if it's weren't for Tigerclaw. But she's an awesome medicine cat - spottedleafpool

Hi my friend told me to do this but anyways I love cinder pelt she is awesome

7 Graystripe Graystripe

Graystripe is so awesome, nice, funny, smart, and cute! I'm surprised his not on the top three!

Why isn't he in like the top three is I still so awesome and funny - Leafshade

He is way 2 good 4 Millie. u #1 2 me dude! - sydneyhelget

Graystripe is mine! I love him to death, he and Hawkheart. I love both Firestar and Graystipe, but Firestar honestly got I bit boring dying the 2nd 3rd and 4th series, but he's still a great cat, and I hate most Firestar haters! (Except @waffle_kitty on Instagram) Bur Graystripe remained awesome through all the books, even though I HATE HATE HATE Millie, Graystripe is still awesome. (Doesn't it just bother you that Millie didn't choose a warrior name? ) I love Graystripe, he's the BEST. CAT. EVER. !

8 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

I love Spottedleaf she is so pretty I couldn't believe my ears when my friend said she wasn't pretty.
I cried so much when she died I mean that wasn't fair she didn't even have an apprentice but luckily Yellowfang was being held hostage and she could take over -

Spottedleaf is pretty, hardworking, sweet and the best medicine cat ever - Sorreltail

Spottedleaf is sweet gentle and kind whats not to like - Sorreltail

No offense to the Firestar x Spottedleaf shippers, but I really hate Spottedleaf. I hate when the authors make a random cat seem special when is it were no prophecies then Spottedleaf would probably just be like Jayfeather's snappish attitude. She was only Firestar's pawhood crush, and lasted for litterally one book. She was barely important. Sandstorm was much better for Firestar, she guided him to all the right decisions that impacted the books in good ways. Sandstorm doesn't get enough recognition. - warriorcats4ever

9 Brambleclaw

Brambleclaw is AMAZING! I hated when he felt sad that no one saw him as a great warrior. He thinks when cats look at him they see Tigerstar. When cats do stuff like that I want to punch something.


Honestly, I don't see how Spottedleaf is ahead of Bramblestar. Bramblestar literally went through cats in his clan doubting him just because of his appearance. Hawkfrost and Tigerstar were manipulating him to believe that he was becoming a good warrior, and when Hawkfrost said for him to kill Firestar, he did the right thing and chose to protect him, killing Hawkfrost in the process. In the Last Hope battle, he killed his half-brother again while Hawkfrost was trying to kill Ivypool.

Even though Brambleclaw's father was a horrible traitor he stayed strong and loyal even when Tigerstar wanted him to kill Firestar he almost did but he stayed strong that's what I love about Brambleclaw

10 Ivypool Ivypool

Why is Spottedleaf higher than Ivypool?
-a pedophile
-always described as sooo unearthly pretty that's really aggravating
-knows Fireheart for a few days, barely talks to him, and talks about love
-if she's so damn perfect stop hitting on somebody who already has kits with another mate
-risked her life every night just for her clan
-had to deal with a perfect sister and was always left out
-stayed loyal to her clan unlike dovewing
-was one of the reasons why the Great Battle was won (convinced the trainees to fight for the clans)
-great character. not mindless and boring like the others *looking at you, dovewing and lionblaze

Go Ivypool! Kate, make her leader!

She is brave and fierce and badass I love her - Leafshade

Firestar and Spottedleaf are so overrated...Don't get me started on how a cat is included in like all of the prophecies and how Spottedleaf is a creepy pedophile who stalks him even after her death and after he's married...
Ivypool treads carefully between light and dark every time and risks her life every night to help her clan. She was always considerate and the only cat other than Berrynose and Spiderleg to actually have a personality in the series

The Contenders

11 Squirrelflight Squirrelflight

How is Squirrelflight not on the list or in fact, even on the list? She's an awesome character! At first she was just stubborn and annoying but she grew into a loyal, strong, amazing character. She loves her sister so much she's willing to, 1) not tell ANYONE that Leafpool broke the warrior code, and 2) raise Leafpool's kits. She's a fantastic character, and she deserved to just live a long, happy life. But, she chose the path which was harder, but right, and got punished for it. How is that not admirable? She's a loyal and brave cat and she deserves to be high up on this list!

Squirrelflight is the best warrior cat character in the series! I feel like Squirrelflight should have been the leader in place of Brambleclaw because Brambleclaw always asks himself "What would firestar do? " when HE is the leader. Squirrelflight however, actually takes more of the responsibility of being a leader even thought she is not. But still. Brambleclaw isn't doing anything!

Squirrelflight is the best warrior cat. Sure, she was annoying and a know-it-all when she was an apprentice, but she is an awesome character! She grew up to be mature and kind, and now she is totally acing the job of being a deputy. I like how I got to see her grow, and mature. EVERYONE! VOTE FOR SQUIRRELFLIGHT!

She doesn't deserve to be punished just because she lied. She only did it to help her sister and her kits. Brambleclaw shouldn't have thrown squirrelflight away just because she did something that was best choice she could make, and never intended to hurt anyone. - powerwow101

12 Whitestorm

He was literally so great in the first arc. People forget about him...

Whitestorm was loyal brave wise and kind he would have made one of the best leaders ever known he trusted starclan and the warrior code he went through hardships like bluestar starting to go insane his bloodclan they don't deserve to be called a clan and most of all losing his mother

Why isn't he top five he is amazing PERIOD. - Leafshade

Top ten at least move it everyone Whitestorms coming - Sorreltail

13 Brackenfur

Brackenfur was so sweet! I hated it when Sorreltail passed, and he was devastated. He was so sweet to Sorreltail as a mate, so loyal and obedient and supportive to Fireheart/star, and very understanding when Graystripe dumped his apprenticeship. Speaking of apprentices, how sweet was he, and so responsible! And so, so awesome to Cinderpelt, saying he'll be a warrior for both of them... I love Brackenfur!

Good choice in a mate - Leafshade

You are amazing Brackenfur you are so brave. Also kind you are one of the best cats ever

I love Brackenfur! It was sooo sad when he lost Sorreltail and then Seedpaw - Vixenleaf

Oh I'm the leader's daughter, I can break the rules!

Gentle, wise, strong, kind, and brave, she is my favorite warrior cat and she should be number 1, not 18. She would have made a great leader too, and would have followed in Crookedstar's pawsteps had she survived her messed-up kitting.


The person who called her fat and ugly is wornge

15 Crookedstar

Crookedstar made me CRY in many ways in "Crookedstar's promise." DEATH TO RAINFLOWER!

Crookedstar is the only cat who was led by the Dark Forest and realized what was pure and good in the end. He had to watch his beloved ones die and his brother betray the Clan. He was a responsible leader and was kind to everyone. When Mapleshade confronted him and said "you have lost everything." Crookedstar gave her a speech that still makes me cry. Team Crookedstar.

I think Crookedstar deserves to be higher on the list. He was such as awesome character, and I got attached to all the characters in Crookedstar's Promise.

Yeah... I feel sorry for hm - Leafshade

16 Mapleshade Mapleshade Mapleshade is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She is a tortoiseshell she-cat with a white tail and mistakenly described as ginger-and-white. She has her own novella and is a villain in the series after she is exiled from ThunderClan, after which she watched her kits die and was abandoned more.

It's subtly mentioned, but Mapleshade is very much insane. Not like in a Joker type of way, but something snapped after her kits' deaths.

Her seeing hallucinations of their ghosts urging to her to have their revenge, her actually believing them and only having their pitiful wails silenced when she killed.

I'm so creepy I'm creeping myself out.

Wait why is she top 16? She is an insane Dark Forest murderer who broke the code and tried to kill Sandstorm! - Leafshade

I thought she was REALLY evil at first but then, I started researching and found she DID lose everything. She lost her mate, Appledusk; She lost her kits cause some died and the remaining were adopted; she was kicked out of the clan! Guys! She deserves love!

Most people think that she is just as pointless and annoying as tigerstar, but COME ON! At least SHE had a reason to be evil!

I am not saying she should be number 1 or anywhere on that list I am just saying that she could at least be in the I don't know, top 50, a little lower but ya know

And I do see why people hate her, but than again in my opinion she makes a better villain than tigerstar

17 Lionblaze Lionblaze Lionblaze is a character in the Warrior Cats series . He is part of The Three, along with Jayfeather and Dovewing, and has the power of being undefeated in battle . However, the power if removed from him after the Clans are saved from the Dark Forest .

This picture is just ugly - Murphypaw

You are awesome Lionblaze - Sorreltail

Ew no he's a gary stu

In my opinion, Lionblaze went through the most during Omen of the Stars. In the first two books he's fine, and has a budding relationship with Cinderheart. Then, in the next book, he tells Cinderheart about the prophecy so she doesn't have to worry about him getting hurt, but it makes her think that she's not good enough for him. This is where Lionblaze starts to think that being part of the Three isn't such a good thing after all, and he wishes countless times to just be normal so he can be with Cinderheart. This makes him, to me at least, way more relatable as he struggles to try and find a balance between his duties towards the prophecy and normal cat life. It's definitely one of my favorite character arcs ever, and makes Lionblaze all the better for it.

18 Leafpool Leafpool Leafpool is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She's the daughter of Firestar and Sandstorm, sister of Squirrelflight, mate of Crowfeather, and mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf

She is truly a sweet cat. She always loved her job and tried to ignore the small feelings inside of her for Crowfeather. Then she is rescued by him and he has also been dealing with his love for her. He confesses and she is torn. After awhile she can't deal with it and starts meeting with him. She is tortured by her loyalty to the clan and her love. She makes the choice to leave with Crowfeather but comes back to save her clan. She arrives right when her mentor who she loved very much DIES IN FRONT OF HER SHREDDED TO PIECES. She knows she can not abandon her clan now that they have no medicine cat and Crowfeather and Leafpool break up. He then tries to prove his loyalty to his clan by taking a new mate. Putting Leafpool through much pain. She has his kits, and she gives them to her sister. She watches her sister raise the kits. Then they found out and hate her. Hollyleaf dies causing her grief while this happens, then Holly come back. Finally the kits forgive her. And this whole time ...more

Leafpool rules. People say they don't like he'd because she broke the warrior code, ran away with Crowfeather, blah blah blah. But seriously, it's not really her fault. She didn't really want to break the code. And in the end, she came back for her Clan and tried to forget about Crowfeather. They stopped meeting in secret, and they were only away for half a day. But her kits HATE her! That is totally unnecessary! And then Hollyleaf has to tell her secret at the Gathering? I thought you were loyal, Hollyleaf!

Leafpool has always been my favorite character. Lots of people say that she betrayed her Clan, but she is the most loyal cat ever. She tried so hard to make her kits love her, just like she has always loved them. Leafpool and Crowfeather were made for each other. They loved each other. Crowfeather loved her enough to let her go. He knew she wouldn't be happy with him, and he loved her enough to understand. Leafpool is sweet, caring, and the image of what a loyal medicine cat should be.

Okay, I really think Leafpool was awesome, and she gave up everything for her love. Sure, she broke the medicine cat code and the warrior code, but sometimes that's just the way it is. Why should she be blamed for love? I personally disagree with the medicine cat code that says they cannot have a mate or kits. Also, when did Hollyleaf try to poison Leafpool? I don't believe that ever happened. The only time I can remember Leafpool having anything to do with deathberries was when they tried to poison the snake with that mouse after Honeyfern died from the bite.

19 Feathertail Feathertail

Okay, sorry all of the people who think that she's a very unimportant character but if you really look into it you can CLEARLY see that she is a VERY special cat. To be honest, Feathertail is my favorite cat in the series and here's why.
1. She clearly saved lots of cats lives. Tawnypelt when she was bitten by rats, Feathertail took care of her. Crowfeather was saved by her when sharptooth was about to kill him. (SHE SACRIFICED HER LIFE FOR HIM)
2. She's one of the friendliest cats in the first two books in The New Prophecy.
3. I know that this is weird to say but SHE IS REALLY PRETTY.
4. The other prophesied cats would have all died along with a WHOLE TRIBE. She was the prophesied cat for that prophecy! (I know I'm using the word "prophecy" way to much)
5. She has Thunderclan and Riverclan blood in her so it is probably very hard for her to cope with that and since her mother is gone, she only has her dad who lives in Thunderclan!

Feathertail should be #1 because she is by far the BEST cat in the clans! She fell in love on a journey to save all of the clans, and sacrificed herself for Crowpaw and an ENTIRE tribe! She is amazing!

I've explained on multiple of these the reasons I love her and I'm to lazy to now but she's the best

She sacraficed her life people she should be higher - Sorreltail

20 Sandstorm

Why is Sandstorm down here in my opinion she is top 5 - Sorreltail

Why is t she top five she is amazing - Leafshade

Love you Sandstorm - Sorreltail

Sandstorm is honestly my #1 cat. She's amazing. She's so well developed and so strong. I love her with Firestar. It's stated in one of the books that she knows him better than any other cat (aka himself, spotted leaf, etc.) And overtime people tend to say she's "bossy" she's really just pushing Firestar in the direction she KNOWS his heart follows. She's strong and is able to hold her own. She took on so much for him and I'm happy they will be in StarClan together forever one day. They are truly perfect for each other and she's truly an extremely developed and great individual. She's so unappreciated it makes me sad. I think people will never get over how she was mean to Firestar when he first joined the Clan but it's called character development! She started seeing him differently after he saved her life.

22 Swiftpaw Swiftpaw

I hate Tigerstar, he led the dogs into the forest and he got cinderpelt injured and many other deaths and if cinderpelt didn't get perm injured then cloudtail would have a different mentor and all the apprentices would be treated fairly so swiftpaw wouldn't die! and brightheart wouldn't be injured. Swiftpaw deserved his warrior name! he didn't deserve to die.

Why did you die - Sorreltail

I loved Swiftpaw so much and then he died. It's all Bluestar's fault though! I wish I could just slap Bluestar and put some sense into her head!

I honestly think that Erin Hunter killed Swiftpaw because they coudn't think of a warrior name for him. But he was still so brave to tackle the dogs! Bluestar, thanks a lot, you completely neglected the apprentices and made an innocent cat die! You're in our hearts forever, Swiftpaw.

23 Scourge Scourge Scourge is a villain the Warrior Cats series . He's the leader of BloodClan . He was bullied by his siblings, Socks and Ruby, in the past because he was the smallest out of his kin . One of his most notable features is his collar of dog teeth .

Scourge is the best character in the story.
1. He saved all the city cats from the dog that was keeping them away from food.
2. He saved all the city cats from Brokenstar's gang.
3. He managed to stand up to Ruby and Socks.
4. He managed to stand up to Tigerclaw
5. He defeated one of the most powerful characters in one blow (One punch cat)
6. He managed to stand up to all 4 clans combined for a long amount of time.
7. He was willing to die for his beliefs rather than surrender like a lot of others
8. also it helps that he looks quite nice as well

He is my favorite and he need to come back - 232105

What da heck he so evil I mean he took one of firestars lives!

He killed TIGERSTAR and one seems to forget that they're all.
Oh ah scourge is evil he killed Firestar. - Murphypaw

24 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost

I just really like him. He could have been a great warrior and everything. In all seriousness, I'm not against him for going into Dark Forest. He didn't know his father so, he jumped on the chance to meet him. Brambleclaw/star knew his father and everything he had done, so I have no pity for him. Plus, he lost his brother. That effected him, if Tadpole had lived, he might have kept his brother off that path. Personally, I just loved his character over all. - Hollysong

Hawkfrost was evil in the beginning; and everyone only saw the bad side of him. But when Ivypool started visiting the Dark Forest you see a whole new side of him. I love that about Hawkfrost; Ivypool brings him out of his tough shell and makes him happy; because she loves him. And he loves her; but if Hawkfrost hadn't been Sasha's son; would he have been different? I think so. He wouldn't think he had to prove he was just as loyal as everyone else; and Tigerstar wouldn't have effected him. I love Hawkfrost; no matter what the super Hollyleaf lovers say about him. It's just amazing to see a bad guy fall in love with a good guy.

Why number 18? He deserves to be higher than most cats on this list! The reason why he followed Tigerstar is because he never knew him, unlike Brambleclaw who had a chance to meet him before. And plus most people just hate him for killing Hollyleaf, literally. He needs more attention!

This idiot cat was manipulating his very own sister! He killed SO many cats. He also tried to kill so many other cats through young apprentices, like when he tried to have Brambleclaw kill Firestar. He was a liar and a murderer. The worst part was when he was in the Dark Forest and killed poor Hollyleaf! - RavenKitty

25 Tallstar Tallstar

He's just awesome. Whats not to like? - DerpaHerpaMerpa

Why is Tallstar here he should be in the top ten - Sorreltail

Tallstar is so underrated.
Especially after what he said in dawn.

Tallstar is awesome! Why in the world is he not in the top ten!?!?!? He's life was so sad! He was rejected by BOTH of his parents. His mother was obsessed with a dead kit and his father refused to acknowledge him just because he wanted to be a moor runner! And even though his father had been so mean to him, he still went to avenge his father's death. That's true loyalty and love. It would have been great if he had a mate. He would be really loyal to his mate, I'm sure. Tallstar's definitely WindClan's best leader! I LOVE YOU TALLSTAR!

26 Tigerstar Tigerstar Tigerstar is a villain in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. Son of Leopardfoot and Pinestar, former mate of Goldenflower and Sasha, and father of Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, Hawkfrost, and Tadpole. This brown tabby cat almost causes the downfall of the clans. But is killed, firstly by Scourge, more.

Best ever!

Too evil - Leafshade

He may have been evil, but it wasn't really his fault if you think about it. If Snowfur didn't die, then Thistleclaw wouldn't of been evil. If he wasn't evil, then he would of trained Tigerpaw better. Tigerstar would of then probably have been more wise. I don't care if this gets like 50 dislikes, opinion! To me, Tigerstar is a interesting character. Go on, dislike it. I won't care. Tigerstar is the best character.

I hate what Tigerstar did because he killed so many cats but if he wasn't there the story would be boring. If you think about it if Tigerstar wasn't alive there would not be the Dark Forest and the plot of training cats so there would be know point in the 4 series. I the end I hate Tigerstar because he is so evil but he is a very classic and good villain and makes the story very interesting.

He is very brave and kind hearted - Sorreltail


Bluestar literally said he makes everyone happy when they're around him - Leafshade

I'm glad you chose Lionheart he is the most epic warrior!

28 Longtail Longtail

So sad when he died - Leafshade

Best cat ever. He went through so much pain in losing his two best friends who became evil. Yet he still stayed loyal. Sure, he could be snappy at times, and maybe he wasnt the bravest, but later on when he became an elder he was extremely sweet. You have to give him some credit and remember him as a sweet and loyal cat. Also, people don't remember when he saved Fireheart when he fell into the river. He was a hero that day.

It was so sad whe. He died - Leafshade

If Mousefur wasn't so old they would've had kits. He cares so much about her! At one point during the drought Jayfeather mentions how he thinks Longtail is giving his food and water to Mousefur; isn't that the sweetest thing ever? You would die, to save the cat you loved? I love this guy! Go Longtail! Whooo!
I also really like how in the first series Longtail's on Tigerstar's side but when he realizes that he's the bad guy he becomes loyaler, and kinder, and Firestar says how he's one of his best warriors! And then the dumb rabbit goes and blinds him! What kind of rabbit is that, the killer bunny of doom or something?

29 Crowfeather

He's not a bad cat... just a very misunderstood lost soul

If everyone loves Breezepelt Hollyleaf Lionblaze and Jayfeather, why doesn't anyone like Crowfeather
He is my favourite from the very start.

He's a jerk but not as jerky as his son - Leafshade

He was a strong willed cat, he was very cold at times, but it was sweet when he showed his soft side.

He went to starclan cause he "loved to much" - Murphypaw

Ashfur is awesome

Evil why didn't he go to the dark forest - Leafshade

Like Yellowfang said, his only fault was loving too much. I l like Ashfur and I think Squirrelflight falsely lead his heart just because she wanted to make bramble jealous. Ashfur didn't deserve that. And he didn't deserve his Ex's niece killing him.

32 Mudclaw

"It wasn't fair what Tallstar chose, I'll swear my revenge from the tip of my nose." - Leafshade

Mudclaw isn't a bad cat, he was incredibly betrayed and unhappy.

Mudclaw is my favorite cat. He was a great warrior and deputy. BUT THANKS TO TALLSTAR HE WAS REGECTIED! I get he was a aggressive cat to other clans and cats, he and Firestar never were close and when Tallstar died, and Onewhisker and Firestar told him what tallstar said, he didn't believe them! Onewhisker could've been plotting to take over leadership and he didn't want to believe a cat from a different clan! He shouldn't have plotted against Onestar, but Onestar is a jerk and not a good leader. Personally I think Thunderclan cats are all jerks.

No Mudclaw was the one who wanted to take over Leadership and hated Onestar, The medicine cat is Mudfur he was a great cat though, but I think you have it mixed up.

33 Mistystar Mistystar

Here is a story by me. Hope you enjoy!
Mistystar the God.
Mistystar walked around the RiverClan camp, wondering how she would die in the Warrior cat books. Then the one and only... Darkwing came up to her. "So, how do you want to die in the books? " Darkwing questioned Mistystar. Mistystar replied: "Hm... maybe something that is godly? " Mistystar asked Darkwing. "How about getting killed by drowning in the Moonpool? " Mistystar replied: "No way! That's how my 1st mate died! "
Darkwing asked her again: "Well, how about getting killed by getting thrown half-way across the lake? " Mistystar tells Darkwing: "Hell no! That's how my 2nd mate died! " Darkwing chuckled, and replied: "Well, how about getting killed by a fire? " Mistystar replies: "NO WAY! THAT"S HOW MY 3RD MATE DIED! " Mistystar decided to eat Darkwing. Then, luckily, A Cat God decided to kill both of them. The End.

She is Riverclan. Boom. I love Riverclan. And she is old. She should be a elder. No offense

Her mom was great too - Leafshade

She is just like her mother as she became leader and she will be just as beloved and important.

34 Brightheart Brightheart

I did a video on her. I think I used this picture.

34? Really? She should at least be in the top 3.
I'm really tired of people constantly comparing her with Cinderpelt. Like, " oh cinderplt went through SO MUCH more pain ' and ' oh brightheart just whined and cinderpelt toughed it out ". If you had half your face torn off and wathc your best friend get killed, wouldn't you be sad too?

Even with a missing eye, she's still the most beautiful cat by heart. Ask Cloudtail.

36 Thunderstar

I love him because he refused to kill he was such a good leader but he liked Clear Sky so... wrong move there. - Leafshade

Thunder rocks! But his girlfriend ending up pregnant with his siblings? That's got to be PRETTY awkward at Thanksgiving.

The first leader of ThunderClan. Son of Skystar, first leader of SkyClan.

Thunder was a great leader! Loyal to his clan above everything else. His father rejected him and Star flower betrayed him. (I feel sorry for him, being rejected and all must have been so hard for him) He was also the first leader of Thunderclan!

37 Thrushpelt

Trashfur chould use some lessons from him.

I love Thrushpelt so much! He's one of my favorite cats in the whole series. I think he needs to be higher on the list. He loved Bluefur/star's kits as if they were his own, he cared about her, he's loyal and brave, and he's so underrated! Thrushpelt did way more than Oakheart ever did. ThrushxBlue forever! - Callie

I love Thrushpelt he should be number one because he was a great warrior but wasnt arrogant he loved bluestar so much even when she didn't love him back and was so loyal go thrushpelt

Ashfur could use a little advice time with him

Good daddy there - Leafshade

I just love Stormfur he is so loyal to Brook in the mountains. He just is a great cat the clans need him

He had to go through so much including feather tails death, not meeting his mother and what tigerstar put him through make him higher

I really like Stormfur, but I keep getting his name confused with Stonefur's. They are to much alike!

39 Dovewing Dovewing Dovewing is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. Her first appearance is in the fourth arc, know as Omen of the Stars, in the book The Fourth Apprentice. She was part of the Power of Three, and her power was to hear and see things very far away, farther than any normal cat could ever do. more.

Dovewing should be number 1! She is one an amazing cat.
1). She is not a mary-sue, she has many flaws.
2). She is so sweet and kind and how she joins Shadowclan just to be with Tigerheart really shows something.
3). This is my opinion of the Bumblestripe business, you can't change who you love, you can self-improve but you can't change who you love! Then Bumblestripe is practically forcing Dovewing to be with him! It's not fair!

I think that Dovewing is a great character and sometimes people need to see her side of things! Sometimes people are just too caught in their own world to see thing from someone else, SHE SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!


1. She's not a Mary Sue; she hates her powers because they separate her from her clan, she has to keep a HUGE secret and feels guilty about it, and her own sister is in the DARK FOREST because Dovewing gets treated different!
2. Yeah she's with Tigerheart. WHO CARES!?!? EVERYONE breaks the code these days (we're exaggerating, but Firestar, Graystripe, plus tons of loved characters have broken the code and few people hate them cause of it)! And Tigerheart makes her happy. Just think about this:

"You're in a clan with your sister. You're thrilled to become an apprentice and then... BAM! All of sudden you LITERALLY HAVE THE WEIGHT OF THE DESTINY OF THE CLANS on your shoulders! Then you meet the one cat you love most (which by the way, you can't help who you love), and the only time you are free of your responsibility is when you're with him."

Think about Dovewing for a heartbeat, will you? Before you go on treating her like a hairball ...more

Dovewing was barely an apprentice when she knew she was part of the prophecy. Poor Ivypool and Dovewing, too much was expected of both of them. Lionblaze was too hard on dove wing, and Ivypool risked her life all the time! Dovewing is so nice to Ivypool, and I think they should have been best friends (its all Ivypool's fault that they couldn't). Ivypool should be part of the prophecy because she wanted to be special. Dovewing and Ivypool should be given a break they both try so hard to save the Clans. (although, personally I like Dovewing a lot better no offense Ivypool fans. ) DOVEWING AND IVYPOOL4EVER!

He isn't such a hero I love him - Leafshade

I don't know why Stonefur is below Stormfur, because if he hadn't risked his own life for Stormfur and Feathertail, they wouldn't have survived Tigerstar's bloody rules!

Is I mean - Leafshade

What 35 he should be #1 he is a mix of blue star and oak heart he is brave, smart, noble, and the best warrior cat ever

42 Shrewpaw

Shrewpaw shouldn't have died! He could have fed half the clan, and was focused on nothing else, even the car (monster) hurtling towards him, which makes him a great apprentice, who should have been a warrior!

Shrewbae! If he lived I woulld of been his mate SHREWBAE

Shrewpaw was such a great apprentice he would have been a great warrior. I wish he lived he was so loyal

I think Squirrelflight should have been with him...

Wait, there's Bramblestar AND Brambleclaw? They're the same cat! I don't really like you sorry.

There is a Bramblestar and brambleclaw because when Bramblestar was leader, he wasn’t was amazing I Guess? And when he was warrior he was better...?

47 Ferncloud

Ferncloud is so sweet, kind, and patient and even though she may seem too much of a softie, it is obvious she would give up her life for every single kit in the nursery, hers or not! And a lot of her kits just kept dying, but even so, she still had hope and joy. Dustpelt also really liked her, would do anything for her, and it was so sad when she died!

She faced lots of pain. More than you remember, people! At apprentice age her mother was killed. She risked her life avenging her mother. She has two unknown brothers. When she is born it is stated there are four kits. Where did they go? She was mentored by Darkstripe. I don't need to explain how bad that is. Let's see... Skip to the next series, she lost half of her kits! She lost her brother (I hate Ashfur. No offense) And she died such a loyal death. - AnonymousChick

In my opinion killing her off because she had way to many litters and stay in the nursery is stupid. Why? If you look at every she-cat and their mate they have one to two litters. so if you want to kill her off cause of that you might as well kill off all of your characters. Don't like my opinion, sorry but every person has a different opinion. and yes how I know that number of she cats had more litters is I looked it up. IF you don't like Ferncloud having number of kittens. put it this way in real life cats whether it be male or female they will bound to have more then one, when it comes to a number of cats. Ex my mother had a pet named sparkie, she had muitply litters. Also you TRY raising that many and see what it does to you. Why not kill off daisy, she did the samething. why like off Ferncloud, but not daisy?

She was so sweet and also she and Dustpelt made adorable mates and it was so sad when she died!

5- 58? HOW? She was mother to Brightheart, Thornclaw, Cinderpelt AND Brackenfur if you forgot! She should be higher than 58! And I've always been confused who was her mate?

What happened to her when they moved to the lake?

I loved Princess! She was the mother of Cloudtail, the best white furred cat in the series, and Sister to the bravest and best leader of the forest.

Is it weird I think Ravenpaw and princess would be cute together...
