Top Ten Warrior Cats in Riverclan


The Top Ten

1 Mistystar

Mistystar is half-clan but she is still loyal to RiverClan! First she got mad at Mothwing when she found out that the medicine cat didn't believe in StarClan, but later Mistystar was fine with that! Mistystar is the best RiverClan leader EVER!

This beautiful, strong, independent leader is one of the greatest RiverClan cats ever. She was first introduced as Silvey's best friend and a nursery queen. She was a very loyal friend and didn't tell everyone Silverstream's secret. Then when she found out Bluestar was her mother she forgave her. And she served her clan well as a deputy and leader. But she was a balanced out character. She was very sarcastic in the beginning to Firestar but she eventually managed to trust him. She didn't forgive Bluestar immediately and it took a while to do it. She sent Mothwing to the elders den just to realise she had made a huge mistake. I think she is a fabulous character and definitely a great leader.

She is halfclan but did that stop her from becoming leader! I hateed the part when stonefur died because TIGERSTAR SAID SO! For all I care, tigerstar can go jump in the river! He needed to exsperiance all the pain and suffering that mistystar had. MISTYSTAR MAY STARCLAN LIGHT YOUR PATH! I HOPE YOU SEE BLUESTAR AND STONEFUR AT THE MOONPOOL!

Like, how OLD is she? She's older then Firestar, who's the same age as Sandstorm, who is in the elder's den now.

2 Crookedstar

I think crookedstar is the best ever because he had so much hardships and even since mapleshade and rainflower got in his way and didn't love him anymore he still tried to make her believe that he was going to be the best leader of all. I agree that he is better than any leader and leaders to come. He is way better than firestar, bluestar, misty star, and most of all tigerstar.

Crookedstar endured so much pain even more than Bluestar! I think he deserves to be 1. Mapleshade made him promise to be loyal to his clan above anything else I HATE YOU MAPLESHADE!

-Redtail loyal deputy of thunderclan

Lived probably one of the roughest lives, crooked jaw, mapleshade's evilness, loosing everything he loved! - Jewlwhisker_456

I love Crookedstar. I can't believe how dumb Rainflower is. She litterally abandond him after he broke his jaw.

3 Silverstream

Silver stream was always beautiful and she even helped handsome Graystripe from the river. She died giving birth to Graystripes kits that was so so so sad when it happened and now Stormfur is in the tribe and Feathertail is dead + Graystripe has a new mate Millie she has his kits buts gets sick and silverstream said that she would do anything to make Graystripe happy.

Silverstream is a very honorable warrior. When she and Graystripe met, She was very aggresive to him and Fireheart/star, Then Graystripe made jokes and Fireheart/star noticed Silverstream's whiskers twitching with amusement. Fireheart/star soon found out that when Graystripe was sick he was sneaking off to meet Silverstream. Graystripe and Fireheart/star soon got into a bug fight about it then Silverstream died giving birth to Graystripe's kits. I LOVE YOU SILVERSTREAM!

I love Silverstream! She was a beautiful and nice cat and deserved to live longer. I mean, she died when she gave birth! THAT'S sad! Then, one dies and the other is in a cat-tribe! Silverstream was a wonderful warrior and would've made a great deputy too!

She's beautiful and I'm not surprised Graystripe became her mate. She would've made a great mother. I don't really like Millie but I've got to defend that she didn't steal Graystripe. Their kits, Feathertail and Stormfur are nice too. Feathertail sacrificed herself to save the Tribe and Stormfur became apart of the Tribe (Also continued generation with his kits, Pine and Lark.) Why couldn't Silverstream live? Could Graystripe join RiverClan...? Or vice versa... And couldn't Briarlight, Bumblestripe, and Blossomfall be born to some other cat... Dunno, just wondering. So Silverstream definitely deserves #3 on the list. The only thing that's a bit bad is that she would technically fall under the Mary-sue category. 1. She's daughter to the RiverClan leader. 2. She has a forbidden mate (But yeah, this HAD to happen) 3. Her mother was 'stolen' from RiverClan to WindClan and then back to a RiverClan. 4. One of her kits had a prophecy. Basically she started another round of forbidden love but ...more

4 Stonefur

Seriously how could you not love Stonefur?! He died a proud warriors death, defending and fighting what he believed in, and REMEMBER without Stonefur, there would be NO FEATHERTAIL OR STORMFUR! GO GRAYPOOL AND STONEFUR!

I love Stonefur so much! Maybe even more than I love his sister. The first warrior book I ever read was the darkest hour and then I read the rest of the first series. In the darkest hour my favourite male character was Stonefur and I cried a river when he died. I didn't expect there to be so many deaths in one tiny book. And Stonefur's was the worst. I love the fact that he's a loyal and forgiving warrior. And the bravest deputy ever.

Yeah I guess he should be their in the first place. Guess I just forgot. Sorry Stonefur should be number two. - Jewlwhisker_456

THE BRAVEST CAT.i can't believe silverstream is here a brat spoilt and excuses! stonefur is way better and sweet nobody should care about flippin silverstream

5 Feathertail

She might not have been in RiverClan too long but she was raised there and born on their original territory so in my opinion she is full RiverClan. She was so understanding to Crowpaw/feather, and the Tribe- she even hunted for them in StarClan! She is one of my favourite cats and I can imagine her in my head- she purdy!

Feathertail is 1000000000000000000x awesome!

Why is Feathertail in 12th place?! She should be in 1st! She is so kind and brave and smart and pretty and just do awesome!

She was brave. (Spoiler alert) She sacrificed herself to save her friends and The Tribe of Rushing Water from Sharptooth.

6 Oakheart

I think that Oakheart should have been a leader and I don't think that he should've died. I love Oakheart, He was a good father to his and Bluefur/star's kits :) He raised them up to be great warriors and the only thing that sucks was that Mistyoot and Stonefur didn't know that Blufur/star was their mother until they were sitting with her and Fireheart/star on the edge of the river and they found out from Fireheart/star they then forgave her :) Oakheart is such a noble and loyal warrior and always followed the warrior code except for when he took Bluefur/star as a mate.

He was a good, encouraging brother to Crookedstar when Rainflower turned away, and he was a noble warrior from what we saw in Crookedstar's Promise. He's definitely deserving of the leader position.

He should of been leader but rocks took him - Jewlwhisker_456

He’s handsome, strong, brave, and would’ve been a great leader

7 Stormfur

I would vote for Feathertail but she isn't on here so I'll just vote for Stormfur. Go Stormfur!

Stormfur is the best! He should be no. 1 on this list! He is so Awesome! - WaffleyPelt57

He is awesome! GO STORMFUR!

8 Graypool


I really admire Graypool. She's so brave. All her kits died and she still raised her sister Willowbreeze's mate Crookedstar's brother Oakheart's kits right after it. Tigerstar: You are so evil, I do not have words for it. I'm ready to help kill you.

Took in bluestar's kits - Jewlwhisker_456


Mistystar and Crookedstar are overrated :/ Why aren't underrated cats like GRAYPOOL AND STONEFUR (who SACRIFICED HIS LIFE BY THE WAY) higher than them?!

9 Willowshine

I love willowshine! She should totally be number one on this list because ever since she was a kit she desired to be a medicine cat and even though her mentor had no belief whatsoever in starclan she still pulled through and remained loyal to mothwing by not telling her secret to the clan. Willowshine is a nice, caring, and overall loving cat and should really be the best cat in the history of river clan aside from river ripple of course! Also she and jayfeather would be an adorable couple even though that has nothing to do with this!

Okay first if you ever saw a picture of here she is ADORABLE big cute blue eyes and fluffy fur! So cute! Sorry about that she's just so cute! :3

Willowshine is THE best! Her name is so pretty, and she's pretty herself, too!

Willowshine is THE best. She's my mentor, by the way. - Junipersong

10 Stonetail

If you mean Stonefur, I totally cried! He was so brave!

I obviously need to reread because I'm sitting here like who the heck is stonetail!

Who's stonetail do you mean stonefur?

Don't you mean stonefur?

The Contenders

11 Leopardstar


Most people think Leopardstar was evil because she joined Tigerclan or whatever it was called, but she's just trying to do what she thinks is best for her clan. She was kinda stupid when she let her deputy get murdered though.

Leopardstar-the medicine cat Mudfur's kit-before he became a medicine cat, spoiled from birth..How did she become the proud loyal smart cat she is? And I just love her name, it makes you know the cat bearing it is really beautiful, graceful..Leopardstar is all that and more!

12 Reedwhisker

I love Reedwhisker so much! Quite mysterious because he's never really talked about in depth.

He's pretty cool. Almost drowned twice though(once as a kit, once as an apprentice). That's too much for a RiverClan cat, don't you think?

He sounds nice
Couldn't think of another cat other than leopardstar

13 Mothwing

Mothwing doesn't believe in StarClan, but like brambleclaw, she isn't evil like Hawkfrost and Tigerstar's- P. S- TIGERSTAR! GO DIE IN A HOLE

She may not believe in starclan and she may have been a rouge but she remains loyal and kind unlike her brother hawkfrost - Jewlwhisker_456

Mothwing deserves so much. She's great. Tigerstar how could you father such an amazing cat? And of course Bramblestar and Tawneypelt are great, too. It must be your mother Sweetbriar's blood in them, not your personality.

How is she number 13?! So what if she doesn't believe is StarClan? That doesn't make her any less loyal to RiverClan, and she has admitted that StarClan has helped keep the Clans together. I think she is honestly much better than #12, on this list, Reedwhisker. Besides, Reedwhisker is barely shown to have any personality. Mothwing, however, is very deep and an in-depth character, she also has flaws that make her relatable. Reedwhisker? We barely hear about him other than that he becomes Mistystar's deputy and that he is her kit. That means that he probably IS a nice cat like Mistystar, but...again, we barely know him. At least we learn a lot about quirky Mothwing. Plus, if they weren't medicine cats, Mothwing and Jayfeather would be great together. - Warriorcats

14 Brambleberry

She rocks! She's been nice and even though she's secretive, she's awesome.

She was always looking out for crookedstar - Jewlwhisker_456

Brambleberry, you're pretty, you're brave, you're wise. Who could ask for more? Everybody should love Brambleberry like I do, she's amazing!

Brambleberry I love you

15 Mudfur

Mudfur is a great medicine cat and a really encouraging mentor to Mothwing who certainly wasn't very sure of herself in Midnight despite saying she's not scared of anything. I think Mudfur should be voted the best.

He beat Adderfang one-to-one! And he risked his own life to protect the whole Clan and prevent more blood from being lost! - officialstudyqueen

He was a great warrior, he had a beautiful mate, he lived an awesome life. Until Brightsky died, with all his kits but one-Leopardkit. Mudfur was really wise, he made a lot of good choices for his Clan.

16 Willowbreeze

She deserves to be higher. I cried so much when she died!

Oh, WIllowbreeze, I will love you forever.

She should have lived much longer!

She should be higher like number 7

17 Hailstar

Just the leader a Clan needs, willing to sleep in the open rain until Every. Single. Cat had a warm dry den. Pretty awesome!

18 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost

Made a cute kit, not SO cute when he grew up. Still, brave, could've been such a leader!

Sure, he was evil, but it really wasn't his fault. He's kinda cute in A... Murderous way...

I'm so glad he's dead! I hope he burns in hell!

Hawkfrost is EVIL. Hawkfrost tried to MANIPULATE BRAMBLECLAW. Hawkfrost tried TO KILL KITTIES. He is EVIL but a FAIL EVIL.

19 Graystripe

I'm not sure hat he counts. He was only in Riverclan for a short period of time. But still, I like that he is counted!

I love grey stripe. His short time in river clan told him were he truly belongs. - sparrowpool-

He's a traitor he doesn't deserve to be here!

He was only there for a little bit

20 River Ripple

He is the founder of river clan for starclans sake why was he not number one on this let alone LAST!?!?
River ripple is an awesome cat and renamed himself in honor of the river in which saved and cared for him and was a really wise and kind cat. River ripple is one of the best cats ever!

He is founder of riverclan and started all of their ways so why is he not first!? - Rainshadow

Adorbs, clever, knowing, independent, humble, noble, caring, and AWESOME. This cat is amaze.

Uhm, how #21?
