Warrior Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders

The Top Ten

1 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.

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.

Why couldn’t he just wait? He might have became leader if he wasn’t always killing other cats! 😡

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.

Brokenstar is really awful! He killed all those poor kits, killed his own father and wrongly banished his own mother! I hope we never have to see another cat like Brokenstar ever again!

He didn't deserve to be a leader. He was made a deputy only because Raggedstar was his father.

3 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.

He didn't deserve to be leader. Deadfoot deserved to be leader. This guy was friends with firestar and turned his back on him because of pride. Well if he had stayed a warrior they might still be friends.

Stop blaming him! This happened to Firestar too! He was like everyone's favorite in the first series but he was a jerk in TNP! Onestar just had new responsibilities: he can't put old friendships down just for Firestar and ThunderClan. Onewhisker was nice with him but seriously, give Onestar a break. He got proud and didn't want ThunderClan to see them as a Clan that always needed help! Onestar needed to prove WindClan was strong and proud. ThunderClan has too many advantages and I see why Onestar had to do it.

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

5 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.

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 honestly was so mad when he made Brambleclaw deputy instead of Graystripe or even Brackenfur! I mean come on!

Greystripe should have been leader *walks of and throws tantrum* ok I am ok now oh no *throws another tantrum because life is terrible* - Mookitty

6 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

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

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.

I got six words, 'Blackstar is a piece of foxdung' - Songwind

7 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.

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

Leopardstar was a good leader after The Darkest Hour. I don't get all the hate.

She was just trying to protect her clan by joining Tigerstar, and she made it right by joining 'Lionclan' in the final battle against Bloodclan - Songwind

8 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

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

He may have just sat there the rest of the series, but he's still a good leader, no matter how perfect he became - Emberflight_of_StormClan

No! sorry I didn't mean to vote for Firestar, he is awesome. - Songwind

9 Shrekstar

Shrekstar should have never been deputy in the first place. :/ And he just got worse as a leader! He started so many unnecessary fights because of cats coming into his swamp and it just became really annoying

Shrekstar is so wonderful, I love him.

Shrek? I cried when you died

Who in starclan is this mousebrain - Aquastar_of_DewClan

10 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 never cared for his own kit. - RisingMoon

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

You mean Gleamstar?

12 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.

13 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.

14 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

15 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 Smallstar

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

20 Rabbitstar


21 Uglystar
22 Rowanstar

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

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

Get lost Rowanstar you ungrateful little piece of foxdung. - Songwind

23 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

24 Bloodstar

Who is this guy

25 Ravenstar

Not a thing - Frogjaw1996

26 Graystar

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

27 Stoneteller

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

28 Blizzardstar

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

29 DerpStar
30 Raggedstar
31 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.

32 Gleamstar
33 Flamestar

Okay, Flametail doesn't become leader

34 Redstar

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

35 Squirrelstar

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

This never happens, I'm confused - Songwind
