Top Ten Warrior Cats With the Saddest Lives

The Top Ten


His MOTHER rejected him! How could Rainflower do that?! And then every single cat he loved died... He had such a hard life. I felt so sorry for him after I read his story.

Ok I love Mapleshade, but I feel bad for Crookedstar. HIS MOTHER REJECTED HIM FOR LIFE! Also his mate AND two of his three kits died of green cough literally a day after birth and Silverstream died pretty young too.

His life was a lie and was unfair, he pulled through a lot,such as his horrible mom, his brother oakheart and somehow get became the amazing leader EVERYONE knew he could be!

Mate: Dead
Mother: Dead
Father: Dead
Kittens: Dead

Wouldn't you also be deppressed?

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 mother named Moonflower and a father named Stormtail. more.

literally everything is sad read Bluestar's prophecy and find out

Her sister loved a bad guy, her sister died. She mated someone from another Clan, she had to give her kits away and one died on the journey. How could you NOT feel sympathetic?

It's Bluestar not BlueStar
Also HOW THE HECK DOES SHE HAVE A SAD LIFE!? Sure there are deaths in her life but then when she is in Starclan life works out!

(DISCLAIMER, THIS COMMENT CONTAINS THINGS MOST FANS WON'T LIKE, BUT I HONESTLY WANT YOU TO READ THIS, EVEN IF YOU LOVE BLUESTAR, THIS IS MY OPINION) I honestly think Bluestar shouldn't be number 1, I think she be low on the list because of her actions. She gave away her kits, it was foolish and took Mosskit's life, whether if it had saved ThunderClan from certain doom or not. She was a very annoying character after Tigerclaw/star betrayed her, she didn't even think about Goosefeather's or Fireheart's opinions. Yes, Bluestar lost everything, but some of the things she lost was her own fault, Bluestar is one of my least favorite warrior cat leaders, many cats are better leaders than her. Pinestar, yes a bad leader, but he didn't go insane, Bluestar did. Oakstar, another bad leader, but he also didn't go insane, Bluestar did. If Bluestar even thought about it for one second, she wouldn't have gone insane, if she had just listened to Goosefeather, or Fireheart's opinion on Tigerclaw, then ...more

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 SHOULD BE NO.1! Imagine being rejected by your clan, clawed at by a friend. Imagine fleeing towards your mates clan, and your kits died, only to be rejected once again and seeing him with another person. Imagine hearing the wailed of your kits at night, and your instinct led to killing cats. She also has nowhere to go. Imagine thinking about your ex-clan mates not helping you when your kits die, a medicine cat telling the sign to your leader, and your mate is having another mate. What would you do? When your being disturbed by the wails of your kits? Fury will surge through you. You will have trouble thinking. And after murdering a cat, one out of three wails disappears. You will think you need to kill 2 more cats(which leads to more murder). I think it isn’t fair that she went to the Dark Forest, she killed the cats out of fury, and the victims were cruel.

She wasn't evil. The clans made her evil. Rejection, rejection, rejection.

She lost everyone she loved! Her kits drowned in the river...her story is so sad.
And all of ThunderClan put three kits in danger, which is breaking the warrior code.

I'm so surprised at how low she is. In a day, everything she loved was taken from her. Her clan, her kits, her mate, everything.


She has no mate, even though she loved Jayfeather, she COULD BARELY WALK, and she could never have kits. Not to mention Millie babying her a screaming about the things she will never do! Instead of acknowledge the wonderful things she actually did, before and she became crippled!

Briarlights life is much more sadder than Bluestars and Ivypool's would ever be. She didn't have kits, Ivypool and Bluestar both found love and she couldn't walk properly from when she was an apprentice. She died young too, stuck in the Medicine Cat Den all her life doing exercises. Never out of camp living the life of a real warrior. I say put her higher on the list! If I was to make a cat come to life again like Cinderfur Briarlight would be my first choice!

My cat ( his name is Black cat but his warrior name is Shadowfire also his name was Crosby but then we kept geting confused between him and his brother ) has the same thing. He can't walk and has to drag himself and it really sucks for him because he was a warrior!

Her whole life after her spine broke was exercising to stay alive. Sure her Mum babies her and ignored Blossomfall, but at least her siblings got lives! Who wants a life of trying to live?

Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She heals other cats in her Clan, ThunderClan, and is reincarnated into Cinderheart. She started out as a Warrior apprentice, but was forced to train to be a Medicine Cat instead after getting her leg inijured by a car.

She had another life. But her first life should have been better, she would have made a great warrior. Even though she was injured for life and had to be a medicine cat, she had high spirits. GO CINDERPELT!

She wnated to be a warrior but for an accident was forced to be a med.

I love Cinderpelt she was so disappointed when she found out that she could not be a warrior

She had a dream to become a Warrior but had that all ripped away when she was hit by a monster. She was then forced to be a medicine cat.

Yellowfang Yellowfang was a ThunderClan medicine cat in the original series of Warriors. She initially was a medicine cat from ShadowClan, but she was banished by her son, Brokenstar. She was then found by Firestar, who was then Firepaw, and brought into ThunderClan.

Her kit didn't even like her, and he didn't know that he was her mother, he exiled her from the Clan and he was EVIL! SA-AD!

I voted for Yellowfang because she had to feel the pain of every cat in the Clan, watch her son exile her, and have to deal with Raggedpelt. Why, StarClan?

She had a kit and had to give him up, then she was blamed for the death of two kits, after that she was kicked out of her own clan for something she never did.

Yellowfang had a very sad life. First she was constantly teased by her denmates and often gets into arguments with her love Raggedstar. She had to give up her big dream of a warrior for a medicine cat because she bears the entire Clan's pain, and the clan teases her for being a medicine cat. Brokenstar is a horrible cat she have to protect and even though she protected him he exiled her, then she joined ThunderClan to be attacked by nearly everyone at first. Even though she lived happily in ThunderClan after becoming their medicine cat, she has to watch Brokenstar stay in ThunderClan and she have to kill her own son in front of herself. Then she dies in a fire trying to save some cats. I think even Crookedstar's life can't be sadder!

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 just wanted to prove his bravery but thir sisters continues don't belive him and then he got attacked by TigerStar

His siblings bullied him and ruined his whole life! Then he was almost killed by Tigerpaw, who by the way, broke the code by harming a kit...

Socks,ruby,and tigerstar are the whole reason scourge is so evil
- nightwing

Scourge spent his whole life trying to get something most get at birth. Respect and love. His own family laughed and made fun of him. And it’s not like he is weak!Firestar a weak cat but gets respect.

Leafpool Leafpool is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She's the daughter of Firestar and Sandstorm, sister of Squirrelflight, mate of Crowfeather, and mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf

Oh, Leafpool! I don't understand how you could've managed. You sacrificed all you had. First your mate, then your kits, then your position as a medicine cat, and finally your life! And none of it was your fault. You were so brave to follow your heart. And then you lost your mentor, too. You felt that it was all your fault. Your heart broke. I understand, Leafpool, that it was terrible for you. Having your own kits hate you, seeing them grow up not knowing who you really were. And you loved them with all your heart! It must have cracked with despair. I understand, Leafpool, I do.

She had to leave Crowfeather, she had to watch her kits grow up, not knowing she was their mother. And when they DID find out, they hated her for it. She then had to give up the role she loved-being a medicine cat. She gave up so much...

She sacrified her mate, then the kits, the position of med, and the your life.

She had to see her kits grow up with out them knowing who is the real mom and they think it's her sister


Dovewing didn't force her idiots, she tried telling her it was dangerous! Seriously!

I feel bad for ivypool. dovewing forced her to go to the dark forest because she thought no one liked her

Well, I don't think Ivypool is the prophecy cat. BUT, she did way more than her sister did to save the day.

Ivypool was such a good sister I think Dovewing should be nicer!

Gray Wing

How the heck is he number 20 his life is so sad! So he has a crush on Bright Stream but then Oh no! She is expecting kits with Clear Sky. Then Clear Sky hates Gray Wing and after that becomes evil. Gray Wing falls in love with a rogue named Storm but... Of course that doesn't work out it's Gray Wing after all. Storm falls in love with CLEAR SKY! She has three kits but then she dies with her two kits and only one servives. So Gray Wing has to take care of Thunder cause Clear Sky regected his son. Now Turtle Tail comes back after her kittypet vacation carrying kits. There father later tries to steal them, and Turtle Tail gets hit by a car. So Gray Wing is left alone to take care of his mates kits. But of course the kits don't consider him as there father so Sparrow Fur just LEAVES! Later he falls in love with Slate and they have three kits but this time HIS mate doesn't die it was his turn!

Also I forget witch book Pebble Heart dies in.

Sorry for the spelling mistakes!

GO GRAY WING! My favorite character, I only wish he had a better life. Last time I checked on this list he was 23. As soon as he got his own kits, he died.

Excuse me people but when you read the Dawn of the Clans you will know what I mean, that GREY WING had the saddest life ever! This was al because of Clear Sky and Thunder.

Is Grey Wing so underrated and forgotten?! His life was so sad, it made me cry.

The Contenders


I seriously think Crowfeather should have tried more to help his son. Breezepelt needs a father he can look up to!

Breezy and Night have the saddest lives. Crow basically rejected them!

Nightcloud sucks. Breezepelt had the WORST life because of her. But he could have still been nice to Lionblaze & Jayfeather, then they would be friends, and he would have some cat to be his, friend!

Breezepelt battled deppresion. His father was leading an unhappy life, when... tigerstar gave him a purpose. (I'm not saying that I like Tigerstar) In the end Breezepelt realized that this was wrong. But he still had a sad life. GO BREEZEPELT!

Hollyleaf Hollyleaf was one of the rare, strictly loyal cats of ThunderClan. She cherished the warrior code as a kit and came back to her clan in a time of need to fight-- even though she was cast out for killing Ashfur.

She had such a hard life she died for Ivypool she was not friends with her to!

She died to save someone AND she was threatened by death by Ashfur! And she exiled herself from the Clan!

She was true role-model for the warrior cat series. She died bravely, she died with courage and she died knowing that she did Thunderclan proud. She died young. She didn't have a mate. She didn't even know her true family.

She ruined her own life, she could have chosen to stay quiet like her brothers instead of ruining five cat’s lives. Just my opinion

Spottedleaf Spottedleaf is a tortoiseshell she-cat in the series "Warrior Cats" by Erin Hunter. She first appears in book 1, and dies the same book.

She died twice, she knew she could never be mates with the cat she loved. How is this not in the top three?!

Spottedleaf's life if so freaking SAD! But honestly firepaw should have told her his FEELINGS! Seriasly!

I don’t like her, but honestly she has a pretty sad life
Thistleclaw tried to be mates with her despite what she wanted. She got killed. She died before telling Firestar how she felt and had to watch him grow up with Sandstorm. And She died yet again saving Sandstorm, and now lives in a world of nothing-ness

Best cat ever


Blinded not even halfway through his life and joined the elders early and died because of a tree!

He is an underrated warrior. I blame the rabbit for his sad life.

His life is the saddest of all to me, he lost his eyesight hunting a rabbit, got crushed by a tree and much more, not to mention the Erin's had said he was also as old as Mousefur so living that long with all the bad things that happened to him had to be pretty bad.

Mother: Robin Wing
Father: Patch Pelt
Sisters: Brindle Face, Frost Fur
Brothers: Dust Pelt, Raven Whisker, Gray Stripe
Clan: Thunder Clan


he was rejected by BOTH his parents. I mean you can't get sadder than that

BOTH his parents rejected him! It seemed like Palebird basically forgot she had a son after she took another mate. Dawnstripe cared more about him than Palebird ever did.

1. Not gay
2. Sparrow killed his pops
3. Tallstar’s revenge is one awesome book!

NightBlaze of Shadeclan

The reason why TallStar is kind with FireStar because he knew that his best friend, jake, was FireStar's father


Squirrelflight rejected him because she loved Brambleclaw/star more! She could just have two litters of kits just like Tigerstar! Brambleclaw, then Ashfur!

He made his life sad! He could have chosen to get over Squirrelflight and get a new mate and be happy.

Everybody hated ashfur because he nearly killed firestar. But nobody really thought about how much he suffered! Ashfur is totally rejected by squirrelflight, one of the biggest idiots in the series. Ashfur literally gave up everything for squirrelflight and then squirrelflight took brambleclaw as a mate (by the way, squirrek/bramble doesn't work at all). He suffered so much and he was killed by hollyleaf for loving squirrelflight. Poor ashfur nobody likes him

Even tho I hate Ash x Squirrel he was such a loyal warrior and didn’t deserve to die.


Seriously, he had the saddest life ever! HUH, read the book if u don't believe me.

Why did his mate and bro die!


She was separated from her sister
She was bullied in ShadowClan
she lived with the Kin had to watch as Needletail (the cat who raised her and her best friend) was imprisoned and starved by Darktail
Needletail sacrificed herself to save Violetshine from Darktail
Violetshine was depressed about this and thought Needletail hated her for a long time

She and her sister were abandoned as kits, and would have died if Alderheart and Needletail hadn’t have found them. She was separated from her sister and forced to live in ShadowClan (I think, correct me if I’m wrong), which then proceeded to completely crumble and get taken over by rogues. She was abused, starved, scared into submission. Her foster mother wasn’t very good to her. She had a very difficult relationship with Needletail, who was her only friend there. One of the most horrific scenes I have ever read in Warriors was when Violetpaw was drug out to the lake in the middle of the night (by was it Darktail? And one of his goons? ) and they almost drowned her until Needletail came to save her, and then they forced Violetpaw to watch as they drowned her only friend, which allowed her to escape as Needletail was murdered.

Just had to add this. She and her sister were orphaned as kits! Then, Needlepaw just takes credit for finding them and takes her to ShadowClan! Pinenose was not the best foster parent, she didn't even like want her. But their thing with the feather was pretty cute. Then Violetpaw was somehow forced to join the rogues... but I'm glad they let her back into ShadowClan after that, also that she was named after her mother, Pebbleshine.


come on, she was bitten by a dog as an apprentice, had to learn a whole new way of fighting, teased for the rest of her life and had one kit with only one cat truly loving her as a mate.

She was nervous of seeing what she looked like after the dog attack I could tell, I love Brightheart she is so kind and so selfless

She lost an eye and ear love her she should be leader
- nightwing

She was trying to prove to her clan that she was worthy to become a Warrior but, then she had to witness her friend get killed, and had her face bitten off by a dog. Her leader even gave her a really mean name. Lostface.


I know people don’t think she has the saddest backstory but if u rlly think about it, think about how much she gave up, she really does. She had to build up a great life just to loose it all in the blink of an eye. But she still picked herself back up. Rather impressive if u ask me.

3 of her kits died!

Brambleclaw was a bad husband.

:< Sad


Everyone left her and treated her like garbage. Poor Daisy and a really tragic life.

Treated bad (all her mates were jerks) and she got injured.

Treated badly by spider leg and her face got scarred.

Treated badly by almost everybody


How is he not #1? His parents died, Feathertail died, he tried to KILL HIMSELF over Feathertail, Leafpool left him, he was forced to have kits with Nightcloud to save his reputation, he never got to know three of his kits, three of his kits died (Breezepelt's littermates and Hollyleaf), and he cared about Nightcloud and Breezepelt and regretted ignoring them!

Is there anything sadder than that?

Um, he should be number 1!? HE'S SO FREAKING SAD! IF YOU DON'T believe ME,
1. Reread the 3rd and 4th arc
2. Watch the Without Me MAP about him
3. Know that he's Arctic from WoF
4. Shove Crookedstar and Bluestar off a cliff to make way for Crowfeather.

He was in love with 2 cats 1 of them died and 1 of them had to leave to go back to her clan and he had a mate just so they can trust him but he feels bad now

2 chances at true love and having kits,one died and both in differet clans.


He died because of Tigerstar commanding Blackfoot/ star to kill him

Stonefur is so underrated and forgotten?

Poor warrior. Got killed just because he wouldn't kill his own apprentice, who was very important to the clan's growth. He died for them.
-Cloverkit of Darkclan

Jayfeather Jayfeather is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He is part of The Three, along with Lionblaze and Dovewing, and has the power to read other cats' minds and walk into other cats dreams. He is blind.

stick breaks*sigh Jayfeather* slowly wood cracking beneath his paws the agony of the splitting wail of the stick and now THE ANCIENT CATS ARE GONE JAYFEATHER GONE FOREVER HOW DO YOU FEEL KID HOW DO YOU FEEL AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT

Jayfeather has to leave Half Moon, he loses so much, and now cats hate him for being Leafpool and Crowfeather. And now everyone hates him.

Are you serious?
Think about it.. actually..


Also, this won't do anything, but please..PLEASE..
Stop calling him 'Jaybae'

His life was difficult, he was blind

Ravenpaw Ravenpaw is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series Warrior Cats. He's a skinny, jet-black tom with a small white dash on his chest, greens eyes and a long, thing white tipped tail. He is shy, jumpy and nervous more.

I honestly love ravenpaw, but after running away from his evil mentor, he lived a quite happy life with Barley. I mean, he caught a SNAKE and an ADDER!

I just love ravenpaw cause his name and his stupid tigerbut mentor

TigerStar gave him quite a fright! He knew he betrayed his own clan but not just that! After I learnt about scourge he became my LEAST FAVORITE! CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

NightBlaze of Shadeclan

He lived in fear by his own mentor and had to run away because of fear of being killed.
