Top 10 Warrior Cats that Deserved to Be in Starclan

Maybe some of the Dark Forest cat out there aren't as evil as we think they are and deserve their spot in Starclan.

The Top Ten

1 Brightflower She is mother to Yellowfang and she accused her daughter of killing her second litter. However, she is a good and caring mother.

She lost her 2 kits to Brokenstar, but she believed that YellowFang killed them, it wasn't her fault that she blamed YellowFang, because she was so lost in grief.

She was a loyal clanmate and a good mother, so if RainFlower went to Starclan, why didn't she?

Yellowfang's mother. According to Su, she couldn't handle the death of her two kits after she thought her older daughter murdered them. And when Brokenstar revealed it was him, she couldn't understand it because she wasn't "sane enough". What? So a cat is sent to the Dark Forest because they were emotionally unstable after their kits were murdered and they were made to believe it was older kits? That's just cruel.

It's not fair that Ashfur went to StarClan after threatening to kill 4 cats, but good cats like Brightflower and Lilywhisker went to the Dark Forest for being mad at something that everyone else would've been mad at too!

Why is she in the DarkForest? Rainflower was a far worse mother than Brightflower...

2 Lilywhisker

Similar with Lilywhisker. She went to the Dark Forest because "she couldn't accept her fate" after her injured her back leg, sending her to the Elder's den too early. Su seems to quite insensitive when it comes to people with mental illnesses and life changing injuries. Because apparently those are enough to seen you to the Dark Forest. Not for murdering or betraying anyone but simply because you were angry for a justified reason.

Just a theory but she might've been the cat that killed Badgerfang

She seemed quite happy as an elder, I don't get the Erins.

Maybe Lilywhisker is the cat who killed Badgerfang.

3 Deerfoot

Brokenstar's adopted brother and the son of Lizardstripe. What did he do? He never supported Brokenstar. And he was always a loyal warrior, doing his job. Never once, did we see him kill someone or anything like that.

4 Blizzardwing

A Cat that appeared in Tallstar's revenge and Yellowfang's secret. Same with Deerfoot, what did he do wrong?

He also did nothing! I kinda liked him!

5 Antpelt

A Dark forest trainee. Killed by Thistleclaw and then a 2nd time by Ivypool. Was manipulated by the Dark Forest and Starclan never once tried to reach out and help him. Not to mention, there wasn't anything he could do to leave the Dark Forest training. Beetlewhisker tried it and instantly got killed off Brokenstar snapped his spine. There are many other Dark Forest trainees that got off scott-free, he why not him?

I guess he really shouldn't have, but he kinda wanted to-? He said it was better then Starclan? Uh.., but I guess he sorta deserves to be here, but they might have sent hime to Starclan if he'd wanted to instead of da Dark Forest...

He Just died training

He didn’t. He just died in there.

6 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.

Maple shade was exiled from her clan along with her kits she had no choice but to try and get to River clan. Several cats watched her kits drowning and did nothing, Maple shade had a right to enact revenge. Everything that happened wasn't her fault! It's mostly Apple dusk's fault for cheating on her! And then he refuses to let her into River clan because of the death of the kits WHEN ITS PARTIALLY HIS FAULT.

Thank goodness she doesn't get too much hate! Mapleshade is one of my favorite characters, and her backstory is the saddest. Actually, Oakstar and Frecklewish are the ones who broke the warrior code. Kits are not to be banished, Oakstar, and Frecklewish, the warrior code says: "No warrior can neglect a kit in pain or in danger." That was THREE kits in pain, and Frecklewish stood by and did nothing to stop them. And also Mapleshade didn't lie about Birchface being their father, that was what Frecklewish said. And ugh, Appledusk. He is my least favorite character. He was cheating on her the whole time! And he didn't want to learn the names of his own kits! And Reedshine started flirting with him in front of Mapleshade. How would you feel if another girl flirted with your boyfriend in front of you? Ravenwing, Frecklewish, and Appledusk deserved to die. (Yes, they did) and Mapleshade doesn't deserve the blame. She should have gone to StarClan.

Yes, Mapleshade did make Thistleclaw evil, and that made Tigerstar evil, nearly destroyed Crookedstar's life, and killed Spottedleaf's spirit, but if she was in StarClan, do you think she would have done that? She went to the Dark Forest just because she couldn't accept that her kits were dead, and wanted revenge. I mean, if you lost your kits and your own Clan and Mate drove you out, what will you do? Also Hawkheart murdered Moonflower for absolutely NO reason and he still went to StarClan? Also Ashfur would have killed 3 cats, then he would have destroyed 4 cats lives, and he is STILL IN STARCLAN. If StarClan gave Mapleshade the chance to live peacefully, then she might not be that bad.

When I first learned about Mapleshade, I totally hated her. But THEN I read her novella, and I learned something: IT WAS NOT ALL HER FAULT! I mean, Ravenwing exposed her secret, ThunderClan exiled her, her kits died, RiverClan rejected her, AND on top of all that, HER STUPID MATE WAS CHEATING ON HER! WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU APPLEDUSK?! I WOULD WANT REVENGE TOO! Okay, sure, she may have done many terrible things after she died, but that never would have happened if her clanmates were more chill. Mapleshade was an amazing cat, who was betrayed and went through much grief and anger. She deserved a second chance.

7 Tangleburr

Was Brokenstar's adopted sister. I admit she was loyal to Brokenstar. However she was typically following the warrior code by following her leader. Not to mention, wasn't you follow your brother/sister if they were leader? Never killed anyone. Was forced to become a rouge against her will, with no fair trial. When Thunderclan attacked, she'd be expecting for her Clanmates to help defend their camp but imagine how confusing it must of been to have your trusted clanmates suddenly turn on you and treat you like an enemy.

That's one I've always been confused about. In the exile of Brokenstar and his followers, how was it decided who were "Brokenstar's followers"? Did cats go crazy and just accuse each other and drive out who ever they didn't like?

She was so kind, forgiving and loyal why did she have to go to the Place Of No Stars/Dark Forest!

Should be number 1!
Loved her in Tigerclaw's fury

who names there kit tanglekit

8 Redwillow

A Dark Forest trainee who fought one the Dark Forest's side in New Hope and got killed by Blackstar. Similar thing with Antpelt. Didn't do anything apart from fighting on the "wrong" side. I think when it's being decided where a cat should go after their deaths, they should be judged for their own individual actions, not the actions of their group or someone else, they happened to be loyal to. It shouldn't be a matter of sides or loyalty. Every group should be judged equally.

I honsetly think he should have been given another chance

He had the best death cene in the whole siris

MUAHAHAHAHAHA! I love his death °W°
~Mistwhisker of Windclan

9 Thistleclaw

Yes, everything could be dismissed with Thistelclaw's behaviour, just saying that he was a good and strong warrior, doing his job to defend his clan. Sure, Bluestar was arrogant and Thistleclaw's story was told from an unfair point of view, yet everyone forgets about Spottedleaf's Heart, which is the one, and perhaps the only thing that tips me over the line.
Thistleclaw was a CHILD PREDATOR in that book. He manipulated Spottedleaf, and was VERY willing to let her hurt his son. He must have been some widowed, I don't know, 20-40 year old with a son older than Spottedpaw herself, yet he always favoured Spottedleaf, even as a kit. When Spottedpaw must have only been, I don't know, 12-15 when he tried to manipulate and seduce her. In my opinion, that is a good enough reason to be dumped in the dark forest.
To clarify, I do not think that Thistleclaw deserved to rot in the Dark Forest because of his actions in Bluestar's Prophecy. Sure, what he did to Scourge was unacceptable, but ...more

He's battle hungry and arrogant, yes, but plenty of other "good" cats are the same way.
Mudclaw, who started a civil war because he was angry that Onestar was chosen as leader over him, and Blackstar, who followed Brokenstar and Tigerstar's orders to the letter despite them being horrific come to mind.
The vast majority of his "evil" comes from Bluestar's, very biased, point of view on him and late-series retcons to make him look worse done by Vicky, who's openly stated that she hates him for whatever reason.
The point is, Thistleclaw was screwed over by the writers bias against him.

So you're saying a cat who encouraged his apprentice to beat up a helpless kit & manipulated an underaged cat should be in StarClan?

Ashfur managed to get into starclan and he didn't. Thistleclaw didn't kill anyone when ashfur attempted to kill 4!

10 Darkstripe

Yellowfang said: Ashfur didn't go in Dark Forest because he didn't kill anyone. So why Darkstripe went into the Dark Forest? He also didn't kill Sorrelkit.

Same as Mapleshade.

The Contenders

11 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.

Hollyleaf is in starclan because she -
*Spoilers*
Dies protecting ivypool from hawkfrost

Holy leaf went to the dark forest?

She is amazingly strong!

I hate this list

12 Breezepelt

Hmm let me think about this for a second. To be honest though I feel sorry for Breezepelt. He had a father that didn't care about (a.k.a I am looking at you Crowfeather) and a mother that told him lies. Yeah Breezepelt didn't have great parents. I want to call Crowfeather a bee-brain right now. He was not a good parent and only mated with Nightcloud to prove his loyalty to Windclan. Lets all admit it: Breezepelt had a bad childhood.

He's not dead yet but he will probably go to the dark forest just for his thoughts,that's like not giving cloudtail an afterlife

he does change in crowfeathers trial

13 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.

Hey peeps firestar is cool

I know he is in StarClan

yea he does not deserve to be in StarClan! but I think star clan is a pretty nice place too

He was the best ThunderClan leader HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE IN STARCLAN!

14 Brokenstar Brokenstar is a villain character from the Warrior Cats series. He is a dark brown tabby tom with a bent tail and orange eyes. Brokenstar was a former Shadowclan leader and a member of the Dark Forest. His mother is Yellowfang and his father is Raggedstar.

He had a tough childhood, I'll give him that. But that doesn't excuse him for; training and killing kits, banishing the elders and Yellowfang, driving out Windclan, Killing his own father and plotting with Tigerclaw.

He thinks he's a tree

Demented by hatred.

15 Dawnpelt

Many people disliked Dawnpelt, but honestly other than the accusing Jayfeather thing she’s an amazing character! I mean unless you’ve had a love one die before, who knows what you would do!

why is this question mark

17 Clawface

"Nightpaw recovered from his coughing fit and trotted over to her [Yellowfang]. Before he left, his brother Clawpaw touched his nose to the small apprentice's ear. "Get well soon! " he mewed." He was only obeying his Clan leader! And look at how kind he is to his brother!

Someone should really Change this image

He never really did anything wrong... other than kill Spottedleaf... but still I’m to mad at him for that

he didn't deserve to go to dark Forest

18 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, ...read more.

He is only evil because his mentor encouraged him. If he had a different mentor then he would probably be like white storm.

20 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost is a villain character from the Warriors series. Hawkfrost is a brown tabby tom with ice-blue eyes. Hawkfrost was a former Riverclan warrior and member of the Dark Forest.

I actually felt bad-ish when he died! I meen he wasn't technically a murderer...I meen he only killed Hollyleaf, and Bramblestar killed him twice!
~Mistwhisker of Windclan

I feel like he should be in starclan bc he was being told to do bad things by his dad

21 Snowtuft

Hi my name is Snowtuft, ever since kit hood I was confirmed evil by standing still and getting used for filler, I then killed my family by getting used for filler, my medicine cat then had to use death berries on me for standing still with the evil cats, now I live in the dark forest, standing with the evil cats.

snowtuft was just kinda 'there' he is mentioned little in the df and the battle of the clans

he was just standing there

22 Redtail
