The Top Ten

1 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 ...read more.

I just wanna hug her. They don't exile cats for this reason anymore, poor Mapleshade, she didn't have parents to love her (according to Warriors wiki, she was a WARRIOR when he first appeared, never a kit! ) She never was an apprentice and SHE JUST CHOSE THE WRONG MATE. She deserves to get reincarnated, let there be a soul named Maplekit be able to see the bright side of the world

I feel so bad for her they didn't reject and resign Leaf pool for having stupid kits!

Mapleshade mated with a cat from another Clan and had kits with him and let her Clanmates think the kits were Birchface's. However she refused to lie, and she had enough courage to go and kill the ones who harmed her/her kits all alone. She is so strong and skilled! - Duskwhisper

She could have been just like bluestar if ravenwing wasn't a snitch, and oakstar wasn't a jerk! omsc!

2 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw

Thistleclaw is a really strong and courageous cat. He loves bloodshed and battles, but he's also very loyal to his Clan. He taught Tigerstar. - Duskwhisper

Ooh I love him!

Thistleclaw isn’t even bad.

It's crazy to see how he went from boastful to a Dark Forest member. His relationship with Snowfur was interesting because Bluefur thought he was too 'big-headed' But it really was nice to read. Snowfur even said, " He makes me purr, " and defended Thistlepaw when Bluepaw said, " You looked like more than just friends! " He's ambitious right from the start as a kit wanting to become an apprentice and telling off Bluepaw when she became one. Plus, his son, Whitestorm was loyal, wise, strong, and brave even with his bad influence. ~Mistyrain

3 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost

Hawkfrost is harsh, and he wasn't afraid to kill Bramblestar when Bramblestar refused to kill Firestar. He is strong, and would therefore make an excellent leader. He can plan very well, too, we have evidence from when he was telling Tigerstar his plot of how he and Bramblestar could rule the Clans. This skill is essential for a leader because they'd need to plan a battle! - Duskwhisper

4 Brokenstar Brokenstar

He is cute just cute

Ok. He had a bad life, we can't blame him. Teased by other kits, not knowing his mom, just think if we were like that.

Brokenstar is a cruel cat, we all know that from when he ruled Shadowclan. He 'avenged' his father many many times, and didn't care whetherkits died or not and sent elders into the forest. However, he's extremely strong and if you can notice, fiercely loyal to his Clan. These are chracteristics leaders should possess. - Duskwhisper

5 Tigerstar Tigerstar Tigerstar is the biggest villain in the Warrior Cats, also the cat that Firestar wants to kill . He has two mates, Goldenflower and Sasha, and four kits, Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, and Hawkfrost . After he dies, he goes to the Dark Forest where he is killed again except this time by Firestar ...read more.

Tigerstar is a leader of the Dark Forest which already gives him a boost at becoming a Clan leader. He's got ambition, and he learns fast. But he's a bit over ambitious which brings him down on the scale. - Duskwhisper

6 Darkstripe Darkstripe

Darkstripe tried to give Sorreltail a deathberry, but he only did it out of loyalty to Tigerstar. This cat can be loyal if he wishes, and he's curious and inquisitive. In one part when he first enters the Dark Forest he finds Tigerstar and asks him questions. One question he asked was about StarClan, which showed that he still cared about StarClan even if only a little. Leaders need this type of personality! - Duskwhisper

7 Maggottail

We don't see much of Maggottail, but in the Omen of The Stars series, he appears once when Ivypool tells Brokenstar that she wants to be a warrior. He thinks she has spoken well for a cat of her young age. Even though he has stinky breath, Maggottail gives praise (even though it isn't real praise) not as hesitantly as other Dark Forest cats. And how he just went up to Ivypool and mewed that shows that Maggottail is brave. A Clan leader needs tohave courage and give moderate praise. - Duskwhisper

8 Antpelt

Antpelt was a normal warrior before he, like Ivypool, got trained by Dark Forest cats. He put his loyalty with the dark forest, and he fought Ivypool to the death. This shows that Antpelt is actually a courageous cat. - Duskwhisper

9 Breezepelt Breezepelt

Breezepelt was cruel and loyal only to Dark Forest cats. He was loyal, strongly loyal to the the Dark Forest until the battle. He fought hard for what he wanted and isn't easy to be swayed on his loyalty and courage. Leaders need to be strong and sure. - Duskwhisper

He is brave and strong, and can fight. He also would be nicer if Crowfeather and Nightcloud didn't hate each other so much, so he would not harm other clans, only Lionblaze, but I hate him anyway so whatever.

Look I feel super sorry for him and I really really like him he's like this super cute bad boy buuut I don't like cats that are obsessed with the dark forest.

10 Shredtail

Shredtail is a tom of the Dark Forest who follows Tigerstar. He trains his apprentices hard, and he is also extremely loyal. There aren't too many supportive, positive points about him, but he's fierce and loyal like many other Dark Forest cats. - Duskwhisper
