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!

She is awesome! I feel so sorry for her ruined life!

Mapleshade is my favorite warrior cat ever! No one will tell me not to love her! If they do I will grab mapleshade’s Vengance an smack that person with it! And I mean a hard covered one! I LOVE MAPLESHADE! As an apprentice she was said to become the leader she was so good! She was the nicest clan member from the clan! Until of corse Ranenwing told the clan leader! If Ravenwing wasn’t a character or didn’t tell the leader Mapleshade wouldn’t have been rejected and her kits wouldn’t have died! She wouldn’t have died! She at least should have let that kitty pet save her! Then she wouldn’t have died at gone to the dark forest! Bettter yet she might have not even got to Crookedkit/ hailkit! Freclewish didn’t try to even save the kits! If she did, Mapleshade would not kill anyone! It is all freclewish and Ravenwing’s fault Mapleshade died and didn’t become leader!

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

You want a pedophile to become Clan leader? - RisingMoon

Ooh I love him!

Oh wow he’s actually on here, nice job! I wasn’t expecting this! He really should have been a leader, although Bluestar probably did a better job than he would’ve done. I like Thistleclaw so I’m a bit biased, but still... - Camaro6

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

Hawk frost was like “Come with me to be evil or watch your leader die.” But then YAY. Brambleclaw killed him.

A terrible cat,

F for morals but A for effort and ingenuity

4 Brokenstar Brokenstar

He was literally born evil. They overthrew him as leader. This one should not be a leader. - RisingMoon

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.

Okay.he exciled his mom.yellowfang thought her pun. was that the other kits died.but kits.they are the future of shadow clan.that means brokenstar was destoying his own clan.

5 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, ...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

I love tigerstar. If he was not in the first series the other series would have been torn apart.

Best villain ever

I don’t think that Tigerstar should have been leader because he betrayed his own clan (ThunderClan),drove out his apprentice from ThunderClan, and almost killed Bluestar, instead Cinderpaw got run over by a tractor.

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

What kind of queen names their kit Maggotkit? He was doomed to be evil from the start.

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.

What the - Aquastar_of_DewClan

The Contenders

11 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

12 Graystripe Graystripe


He’s not in the Dark Forest stupid, he’s not even dead! - Camaro6

13 Silverstream Silverstream

What if Graystripe and Silverstream were leaders and mates at the same time lol.
