Warrior Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders

The Top Ten

1 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.

Stupid Tigerstar! He should never have been leader! HE KILLED TO MANY CATS! HE Let them suffer just because of his ambitions! I Hate you Tigerstar!

Goes to forest, shoots Tigerstar. I know that would ruin the climax but I hate him so much and he should have suffered even more before dying. - Songwind

I don't think I need to put why, because everyone who's reading this probably already knows why he should not have been a leader.

WHO gave him his 9 lives?

2 Brokenstar Brokenstar

I think Brokenstar should be above Tigerstar on this list, because he did a few things even Tigerstar wouldn't do. First of all, he killed the previous leader, Raggedstar, who also happened to be his own father. Raggedstar still had all of his nine lives, too, so Brokenstar must've killed him in a really awful way. Second, he started training kits as young as three moons to be warriors. Third, Tigerstar's medicine cat (Runningnose) disagreed with him, but Tigerstar put up with it, when Brokenstar's medicine cat (Yellowfang) disagreed with him, he exiled her by killing two kits and making it look like she did it.

When I saw, "Top Ten Warriors Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders" Broken star literally came into my mind first. I don't hate him, but he most certainly did not deserve to be leader! I know he didn't have the best kit hood, and his clan mates were less than supportive to him. But that is not an excuse to kill kits and blame others for your own treachery. He was made a leader, which is an honor, so you are not supposed to misuse that authority. So, considering the state he was at... He was not fit to be a leader.

Why is Brokenstar not above? He cruelly murdered kits and blamed it on an innocent medicine cat. He led countless battles, killed countless warriors, killed his own father, and betrayed the clan that sheltered him. He also killed Ferncloud.

Brokenstar took Badgerfang away. I wish he had died a slow and painful death.
A moment of silence for Badgerfang, Marigoldkit, Mintkit, Brownpaw, and Mosspaw.

3 Onestar Onestar

Onewhisker was such an amazing cat, noble and trusted the cat that practically saved him, he was one of my favourite characters and it's pretty hard to get into one of my 'favourite characters list'. AND THEN ALONG CAME ONESTAR! He literally came in and was just like, "oh I'm a dumb leader now, I better go tell Firestar what to do and go and be a dumb proud leader." When he came and said this (not really) I got so angry at the Erin's WHY ERIN'S WHY! COULDN'T YOU SEE THAT I LIKED ONEWHSIKER! I agree with most people here, if he had just stayed a warrior or even the deputy forever, then he would not be a dumb arrogant jerk!

He started that stupid battle in Power of Three because he wanted to wanted to prove WindClan was strong or something dumb like that.

The only reason Tallstar decided he would be leader before his death was to have a good and peaceful relationship with the Clans...honestly, Mudclaw had way more experience as deputy and warrior, and he could make wise choices. Onestar isn't loyal to his Clan; he's crazy! Remember the time he denied ShadowClan herbs when their leader/two warriors were DYING? - whattheheckamidoing

Onestar attacked Thunderclan! When he did that I was thinking,"what are you thinking Onestar,Thunderclan was never beaten from their own territory,even if they do their fast to take it back".Tallstar didn't pick him to beacome leader to do that.I loved him when he was called onewhisker,but know I think he's no more than a angry kittypet.Like Firestar helped him beacome leader,helped him fight Mudclaw and his supporters,and helped him fight dogs.Windclan would had been dead if it wasn't for Thunderclan/Firestar.The thanks Onestar gave Firestar was attacking his clan.

4 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 .

He was encouraged by his siblings to be mean and harsh, and almost killed by Tigerstar.

He was a really terrible leader. I hated it when he tried to kill Violet for something that Barley did. I don't like Tigerstar but he didn't deserve to die like that.

Without scourge, Tigerstar would be still roaming the forest. But Firestar would have killed him already, right? - Aquastar_of_DewClan

He was never a true clan leader but Shame on you that you KILLED: Whitestorm, tried to kill Boulder, Killed Tigerstar (well, he deserved to die), his littermates(They starved) yea they deserved to die, Killed one of Firestar's lives. BLAH, if I was a kid in the series, I would go up to Scouge, punch him in the face, and throw him in the river for KILLing cats. - SilverstarofIceclan

5 Leopardstar

So many people hate her for actually being a GOOD leader and for not befriending Firestar! Sure, she made some bad decisions during The Darkest Hour, but every leader makes mistakes and she was new at it! I wish people would stop using her disliking towards Firestar as an excuse to blame her for being one of the worst leaders in Warrior Cat history. I think she is one of the best.

She's okay. Just because she was allies with Tigerstar doesn't mean she's a bad cat; at that time, they didn't know Tigerstar was evil, and even Firestar said at one point that Tigerstar could be a convincing cat. Who HASN'T thought of the benefits a single Clan would bring? Seriously stop hating. She didn't understand the consenquences of Stonefur dying because she was new to the job and she thought that Tigerstar would know best. - whattheheckamidoing

Everyone hates her because she's not friends with Firestar. Really? She's okay! Not terrible, but okay! - SpyroZap99

I’m so glad she died an apsolutely dumb death of diabetes, she deserved it

6 Bramblestar Bramblestar

Not really. Bramblestar made multiple bad decisions during Bramblestar's storm. Graystripe is amazing, as if Brackenfur.. Bramblestar is pretty old too. And of course he shows favoritism as choosing Squirrelfight as deputy, when Firestar was smart and chose Whitestorm. He only became leader because he was the main character in the second series.

I hate this guy but star clan LOVES him.
And then when fire star died he just kicked in and stood there.
Burn in the dark forest bramble claw.
( his super edition gave me disease )

He constantly makes the Firestar mistakes of trying to get into all the other clan's business. He also had to be told multiple times to be his own leader and not just try to copy Firestar, though he does that ANYWAY

I don't like Bramblestar, he's the worst! He even had the ambition to be leader, in the books. Said it himself. #Tigerstar blood

7 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.

Why are you saying Firestar should not be a leader? He's a great leader in my opinion. He's not that perfect. He wants to make ThunderClan the best it can be.

I don't like how if you have a prophecy you get special attention from certain leaders( Bluestar, Firestar ) it's kinda unfair to other kitties

Whoever did this was probably just having a joke. Firestar was a great leader although he did have some mistakes, and he was kind of a Gary Stu.

He's such a Gary Stu that takes over the whole entire books of Warriors, even PO3, OOTS and even AVOS. And even Bluestar's prophecy!

8 Blackstar

Russetfur should have been a leader in her time, she's fierce, loyal and deserves it more than Blackstar. Plus, if she was leader she would have come back when Lionblaze accidentally killed her. - Songwind

Because Stonefur is my favorite cat, I believe Blackstar should have never become a leader. He was the deputy for the two most evil cats ever, so Starclan should have rejected him. But did they? NO. Thank you Lionblaze, for killing Russetfur and making that fool of a leader suffer.

Ya blackstar should not have been leader. It should have been russetfur who should have become deputy then leader. Boo blackstar.

I could not belive he killed Stonefur, poor little Mistystar is now all alone without: Mosskit, Bluestar, Snowfur, Whitestorm, and now STONEFUR. Shame on you Blackstar! - SilverstarofIceclan

9 Clear Sky Clear Sky

Clear Sky is too self-centered. He sent away a hurt cat because he didn't contribute to the group. That's so rude. Jagged Peak was capable of doing other things! He isn't a burden! If Clear Sky was leader in the time of Firestar, then these cats would be gone: Brightheart, Briarlight, Longtail, Cinderpelt, all of Brightheart's kits and grand-kits, and Jayfeather. That would be pretty bad! And if he lead other clans, Crookedstar would never lead. Nor would Deadfoot become a leader. Clear Sky was just not all that smart. How come he got to found a clan?

He was way too greedy and power-hungry. What kind of cat drives his kit out of his group? He didn't do anything wrong!

Get lost Clear Sky you self centered ego-maniac. He should have gotten killed when One eye turned his clan on him. - Songwind

He sent out: Jagged peak, Storm, Gray wing, Thunder, Frost, Rainswept flower... Blah and more - SilverstarofIceclan

10 Oakstar

He forced mapleshade and her KITS out of the clan just because she loved Appledusk.Which led to swimming with her kits causing them to drown and Appledusk to hate her and riverclan to not let her stay which made her be evil. Wait to go Oakstar! The cats Mapleshade killed,all those deaths are your fault.

The Contenders

11 Starstar

Wait like Star flower? Ha that would be funny if she became Starstar.

Dying laughing because of this and Shrekstar - Songwind

God spare me.

No even though star star had her faults like mateong the medicine herherb she was a great leader.She helped paw paw believe in himself and befriended tailtail which helped after his sister's,heart heart death

12 Rowanstar

Literally useless, sat around and did nothing, made bad decisions, etc. I can't even express what a bad leader he was, even though he was a good deputy. Tigerheart makes a way better leader than him.

Too arrogant, can't accept help. Could have destroyed his own clan. - PjTenz

Good deputy, not so good leader; same with Onestar...

I hate Rowanstar he is too lazy

Umm okay I guess a Girly Girl made up this and had no idea what she was doing

So, it's come to stupid names. Shrekstar, Starstar and Kawaiistar are all made up people. - Songwind

This cat is leader of DerpClan

You mean Gleamstar?

14 Leafstar

Why is she on here? Is it because she had kits guys? If it is because of that your sexist. A bunch of male leaders had kits and no one complained. - Songwind

Actually freckle wish is in the thunder clan maple shade killed her

Said nobody ever.

15 Pinestar

He just left his leadership, that's it.

All he did was leave his clan! That sounds pretty bad doesn't it. Well he shouldn't be on the list.

If you read Pinestar's choice you'd like him people! - Songwind

Aw, come on, guys! He decided to become a kittypet, and now everyone thinks he should never have been leader? Really? How about you read Pinestar's Choice?

And he's not responsible for Sunstar's death! He had no idea that was going to happen! - Talljake

16 Ripplestar

He attacked all the other clans at the gathering, and then he ended up getting killed by starclan, and that probably means that he has done more bad things oh boy

He ATTACKED 4 other clans during the gathering before Cloudstar was leader!

No err no what was starclan thinking

17 Nightstar

He was very old and at the Gathering he didn't even have a Leader Name. Came to put that out there. He's too old and scrawny! I'd rather pick a kit or apprentice.

A little too proud but shouldn't be on the list.

Too prideful for his own good

No he acted like brokenstar after windclan came back. He tried to drive them out AGAIN!

18 Badgerstar

Who is Badgerstar? No one right?

Badgerfang! He was so excited to become an apprentice. And then what happens? He is killed because he's too young to be in battle! ~Mistyrain

Badgerstar is a black and white she-cat. She is the leader of WindClan. Badgerstar was born to Gingerspots and Woolypelt. She had no siblings and her father ignored her for he thought she was a bad omen. Soon, only her mother would be her family. When Badgerkit became an apprentice, Gingerspots found a new mate. Badgerpaw had a mentor named Leafwhisker and she became friends with Poppypaw. When she became a warrior she earned the name Badgerpool. Her father, Woolypelt, tried to kill her once, and he was exiled. After time she became deputy, then leader. (This is fake by the way)

19 Stupidstar
20 Smallstar

He was a kit. He should have become a leader but he drowned for Pete sake

21 Raggedstar

He was a terrible leader in my opinion he spoiled his son too much and was mean and killed his own father just because he got mad

22 Rabbitstar


23 Gleamstar
24 Riverstar

I mean, he's not that bad, but he seemed more like a medicine cat type.

Oh come on people he never did anything wrong - Songwind

He had WAY too much catnip!

He is one of the kindest leaders but he does seem alittle medicine cat like

25 Bloodstar

Who is this guy

Is this like a BloodClan cat? Because I never heard of a cat with Blood- in its name.

26 Ravenstar

Not a thing - Frogjaw1996

27 Graystar

WHO SAID GRAYSTRIPE WILL MAKE A BAD LEADER?! Well guess what? He dosnt become leader.

28 Stoneteller

Which Stonteller?

I mean she was so loosey goosey. She acted like a kittypet! I didn't like her as a leader and she was just blah. Stonesong should have been leader

29 Blizzardstar

He was the leader of shadow clan and was in the warrior code thing. He was a really bad leader. Very inconsiderate.

30 Cloudstar

He started out as a good leader but then it all went downhill after they lost territory. He ran AWAY from the clans. He could have stayed and fought, or look to Starclan for guidance. Either way, because of him, cats lost faith in starclan.

31 Flamestar

Okay, Flametail doesn't become leader

32 Redstar

Part of the leadership group that booted out Skyclan. - Songwind

33 Squirrelstar

This is not fake. After Bramblestar's death. She was so annoying during "The New Prophecy.

This never happens, I'm confused - Songwind

34 Tallstar Tallstar
35 Darktail Darktail
36 Robot Star

What? Who is this cat.
