Warrior Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders

The Top Ten Warrior Cats Who Should Not Have Been Leaders

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.

I am still mad about what he did to Ravenpaw after all these years

2 Brokenstar Brokenstar is a villain character from the Warrior Cats series. He is a dark brown tabby tom with a bent tail and orange eyes. Brokenstar was a former Shadowclan leader and a member of the Dark Forest. His mother is Yellowfang and his father is Raggedstar.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Some people are insane or they just can't read the list title right

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!


(So what if he's the main character he helped though tragic problems! He deserved to be leader! )

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

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

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

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.

6 Bramblestar

he is decent but when he lost a life in the broken code...Oh wait he never had one

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

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 )

7 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!

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.

8 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.

9 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

*Sighs* This Cat annoys the crap out of me, I don't care what Star Flower says, he IS evil.

10 Rowanstar

HE DOSEn't DESERVE LEADERSHIP well he kind of does its all darktail's fault he might have been a good leader

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.

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

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

The Newcomers

? Fakestar
? Mistystar

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 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

13 Leafstar

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

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 Starstar

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

Dying laughing because of this and Shrekstar - Songwind

I should vote here! - Sliverflight

What the hell...?

15 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

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.

Who made Nightstar leader? Not Brokenstar!

16 Stupidstar

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

Wow. that is so intense, guys


O my gosh - sydneyhelget

17 Darktail

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

thick boi

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

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

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

Wait, wait, wait, what happened to Bramblestar?

This never happens, I'm confused - Songwind

21 Blahstar

*sighs* - Murphypaw


Sounds fake.


22 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)

23 Smallstar

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

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

24 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

25 Tallstar

how DARE you insult Tallstar

How dare you - Murphypaw

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

26 Robot Star

come on guys I bet who ever made this list got the title wrong it should be TOP TEN DERPYEST WARRIOR CAT WANNABE NAMES

What? Who is this cat.


27 Bloodstar

who is this probably made up

Who is this guy

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

eh? WHO? - sydneyhelget

28 Ravenstar

I am bored - Sliverflight


Not a thing - Frogjaw1996

29 Graystar

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

Who’s he?

30 Rabbitstar


31 Flamestar

Flametail wasn't leader he died drowning*cries* AND IF THIS LIST KEEPS MAKING NAMES I'VE HAD IT

Okay, Flametail doesn't become leader

32 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

33 Deerstar


34 Hailstar

Hailstar is a great leader

35 Crookedstar

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

36 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 didn't even like gatherings! - Murphypaw

He had WAY too much catnip!

37 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

38 Blizzardstar

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

39 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.

40 Redstar

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

41 Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She was one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan. She has a deceased kit named Mosskit, a sister named Snowfur, a nephew named Whitestorm, a mother named Moonflower ...read more.

How dare you take a kittypet into your clan Bluestar? - spottedleafpool
