Warrior Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders

The Top Ten

1 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 was the worst leader ever! Tigerstar only cares about what's best for Tigerstar. He abandoned his Clan and kin when they needed him, then came back when it suited him. He also tortured and killed countless warriors and he was so disloyal. A leader is supposed to set an example for their Clan. What kind of example has Tigerstar set?
-Maddie - PastelTheGamer

I don't understand how starclan gave him his nine lives because they knew he was evil

Duh. He killed Redtail, a few other dudes, almost killed Bluestar, almost killed Ravenpaw... Uhhh. Yeah.

How did starclan even give him nine lives

2 Brokenstar

Brokenstar was just as bad as Tigerstar! So disloyal, cruelly tortured and murdered innocent kits and blamed them on other cats, led countless battles, killed countless warriors, killed his own father, and betrayed his clan. Should never have been a leader!
-Madison - PastelTheGamer

Young: Look Yellowfang I'm a tree!
Older: Look yellowfang I'm evil! - Murphypaw

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.


3 Onestar

He’s not a bad leader!

No love 4 onestar? - BloodFang

WHAT? - Sliverflight

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!

4 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 is he on this list? He should be on the list for the BEST warrior cat clan leader!

He should be on the BEST Warrior cat leaders! Take him of this list now!

Ya Firestar rules!

Firestar was the best leader of all the clans. TAKE HIM OFF THIS LIST!

5 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 never a real leader leading a real clan

He very deserved his position! - Willowfur

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

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

6 Bramblestar

He is not a terrible leader

I hate Bramblestar I think Graystripe or Sandstorm would be better leaders than him

I meant tonE - sydneyhelget

As soon as Firestar dies, SANDSTORM FIRESTAR's mate, says BRAMBLESTAR! BRAMBLESTAR! says me in mocking tonq - sydneyhelget

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.

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

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

8 Blackstar

How does everyone trust him? He was one of TIGERSTAR’S closest allies. He respected his plans and killed Stonefur

He’s not a bad leader! Former leader of ShadowClan. Team ShadowClan for life!

Why. - sydneyhelget

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

9 Clear Sky

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

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

10 Rowanstar


He’s just a little weak, not a bad one!

Not the worst cat, but a horrible leader. - RoseWeasley

HE ALMOST STARTED A WAR OVER A RABBIT! (tigerheart's shadow) - sydneyhelget

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Leafstar

Leaf star might be a pain in the neck but she is still a good leader of SkyClan!

Not bad!

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

13 Starstar

What the hell...?

I should vote here! - Sliverflight

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

Heh - sydneyhelget

14 Nightstar

He should not have been leader because broken star was still alive so he never got his 9 lives he almost saved shadow clans reputation

Who made Nightstar leader? Not Brokenstar!

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.

15 Stupidstar


Wow. that is so intense, guys

Stupidstar? I mean come ON!
SuperKittyRules, mother of Firestar

O my gosh - sydneyhelget

16 Pinestar

"I'm A gOnNa LeAvE tHe ClAnS now" blah blah blah - Murphypaw

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

17 Kawaiistar

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


18 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


19 Gleamstar
20 Squirrelstar

Wait, wait, wait, what happened to Bramblestar?

Did Bramblestar die?!?!

Bramblestar died? NO! I will stop reading warriors then! With squirrelflight leader, I will stop, and I mean it.

HUH - sydneyhelget

21 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)

22 Smallstar

I don’t understand why he became a leader once he died.

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

23 Darktail

He was never leader, never should been, never will be, never has been

24 Ravenstar


I am bored - Sliverflight

Not a thing - Frogjaw1996

25 Graystar

Who’s he?

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

26 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

27 Rabbitstar


28 Tallstar

How dare you - Murphypaw

Tallstar... Seriously? Who’s next Sunstar?

29 Blahstar

Sounds fake.

*sighs* - Murphypaw

30 Flowerstar

I think I know that cat: after the leader and deputy died the medicine cat interpreted an omen that she should be leader (That omen wasn't real)

I don't know her - Sliverflight

31 Crookedstar

He might have followed the advice of a dark forest cat but he was a good leader

32 Riverstar

He didn't even like gatherings! - Murphypaw

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!

33 Bloodstar

eh? WHO? - sydneyhelget

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

Who is this guy

34 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

35 Blizzardstar

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

36 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.

37 Flamestar

Okay, Flametail doesn't become leader

38 Redstar

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

39 Robot Star

What? Who is this cat.

40 Deerstar
