Top Ten Warrior Cats With the Saddest Lives


The Top Ten

1 BlueStar BlueStar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan

(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

1. Her father didn't like her and SnowKit 2. Her father hardly noticed her mothers death 3. Sh lost her mother like right after she became an apprentice 3. She lost her sister early on in life 4. She ad to give up her mate (OakHeart) 5. One of her kits died 6. She had to send her kits to River Clan. - Snowpelt

She lost literally everyone she cared about through either death or separation or what have you. And the only reason she had to was because StarClan needed to play with her some more and use her for some stupid prophecy. The warrior code means nothing when you go to StarClan, and she spent her entire life sacrificing everything for it.

She chose to give up her kits. That was entirely her choice. Also, she shouldn't have had a one night stand with Oakheart, who she even says she thought was annoying and rude. - Lilycat14192

Bluestar is a FIGHTER.

Throughout all her sad, emotional moments she remained true, brave, and loyal to her Clan no matter what. She weighed her decisions carefully. Even though she was a great cat and leader, her life is clearly tragic. I mean, it's like Hunter is trying to rewrite Shakespeare with CATS! (Sorry Hunter, Disney did it first).

2 CrookedStar

Guys, seriously, Crookedstar's Promise is so much sadder than Bluestar's Prophecy. Crookedstar lost his mate, parents, kits, and leader, and also was underestimated because of a scar. Bluestar lost her mother at a young age, and her sister later on, and had to give up her kits. But Crookedstar didn't get to see two of his kits grow up. And what really makes Bluestar's Prophecy sad is that Bluestar won't stop mourning. I think CrookedStar's life is very sad. To have to watch everyone around you die, it's just heart-breaking.

He was mistreated by Rainflower and wasn't loved by her either. - Oliveleaf

Crooked star had the saddest life of all seriously people don't really notice him and his pain, and that means readers and warriors

Crookedstar was practically disowned as a kit, I honestly cried reading Crookedstar’s promise

3 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 .

At first you think he's evil, then you read the start of the comic you feel sorry for him, then you read the end of the comic and you think he's evil again. - Snowpelt

Poor Scourge! If you don't feel sorry for him, read The Rise Of Scourge. I HATE YOU RUBY WHY DID YOU HAVE TO MAKE HIM EVIL

Screw Scourge! He's an edgy teenager that didn't listen to his kind and caring mother. - Snippular

4 IvyPool IvyPool

Her Mary Sue sister hogged all the spotlight! I like Ivypool. She is one of my favourite characters, and Dovewing is like,"My sister bullies me! "

Had to live with her everyone looking to her sister - Snowpelt

I love Ivypool because she was so brave to spy on the Dark Forest. But I don't think Dovewing is a Mary Sue, either. She was a good cat, too! The forest hadn't survived without her, you know. - Hollymint

O.o that guy is triggered. She never whines or "bitches" anyway. She has a very sad life. Dovewing is a worthless brat and I hate her. Ivypool is amazing. Dovewing is like
"Ah! Look at me! I'm so popular! Ooh la la! " And poor lil Ivypool is just there like, ":(" and everyone's just like, "dovewing is so much better because she got da powa! " Actually, no. Ivypool is awesome

5 BriarLight

She did have a sad life I mean her and Longtail was crushed by a tree and she had to watch Longtail die being there not being able to help and she also got hurt badly and her back legs where crippled but it was also kinda happy how she could walk after a while

Wait y r these spelled like BriarLight? Its Briarlight.

Both of those spellings are the exact same..? Unless you mean the capital, in which case, both are corrects. - Lilycat14192

She could hardly stand!

I feel so sorry for her she is so cute and I love her so much and she is awesome! And so brave! If I were her I would give her an award 🐱

Poor Breezepelt I feel so sorry for him and he is one of the most relatable characters for me.

Hi father didn't care for him

I feel really bad for him

7 LongTail

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.

Wasn't a warrior for long, blinded bye a rabbit - Snowpelt

Poor guy. One of my fave warrior cats!

8 Hollyleaf 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.

No need to explain - Oliveleaf



She lived a really sad life, and she deserved so much more than what she got. Hollyleaf was a brave and loyal warrior and was lied to by her parents and then killed by Hawkfrost. 😰😰😰 - Oliveleaf

9 Cinderpelt 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.

This isn't as sad as the other ones. - Snippular

She wanted to be a warrior

I love cinderpelt. One she was loyal,two energetic like yours truly and she never mated! I love the med. cats like yellowfang leafpool, but seems they mate and have kits a lot like a lot. Long live cinderpelt.

Cinderpelt has willing to work hard to become a warrior but her dreams were shatttered when she tried to help her own clan. She died saving her clanmate. Cinderpelt to me even a medcine cat will have the heart of a warrior - thereadingthief

10 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 more.

He lost his father and he had a blood thirsty mentor. - Snowpelt

First, he LOVED Thistleclaw. Second, EVERY CAT HAS LOST SOMEONE. Sorry, but maybe 2 cats haven't. And that's because they are alone, like Purdy. - Lilycat14192

The Newcomers

? Sandgorse

Sandgorse son,talltail was never made a tunneler as well as he died in the tunnels with hate for talltail because he never wanted to be a tunneler - tallstar_is_the_best

? Snowtuft

The Contenders

13 Mapleshade 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 has her own novella and is a villain in the series after she is exiled from ThunderClan, after which she watched her kits die and was abandoned more.

Mapleshade was cast out by ThunderClan, and found out her mate never loved her, and she watched her kits drown, became a rouge and then went to the Dark Forest... Just for trying to love...

She is so hard done by - tallstar_is_the_best

It's very sad. she became evil because of people never respected her.

14 Yellowfang Yellowfang

Honestly, her life was really miserable. All her kits died, except the one that grew up to be a murderer and kill his father! Her mate was forcing her to be a warrior, despite of the power or curse she had of feeling others pain, and of course, she HAD to be driven out of her clan by her own son! Poor Cat..

She had to watch some of her kits die and Brokenstar getting abused by his foster "Mother", Raggedstar became Foxheart's mate, then she had to kill Brokentail and soon after, died in a forest fire. I agree that Crookedstar and Bluestar had sad lives, but they became respected leaders! Bluestar got to see Mistystar and Stonefur grow into fine warriors! The same goes with Crookedstar, even though Silverstream died early, she got to go to Starclan and was never hated. By far Yellowfang has had one of the saddest lives in the series.

15 Leafpool 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

She was in love, but wasn't allowed, had to give up her kits, her son, Jayfeather hated her, Hollyleaf had tried to kill her, and Leafpool is her own MOTHER!

Leafpool is my favorite warrior cat

She gave up her kits and pushed away her own happiness so then she could care for her clan. Then her daughter (Hollyleaf) died, her father (Firestar) died, her friend (Sorreltail) died and a part of Leafpool died with them. Leafpool isn’t dead, but I still believe that she has one of the saddest lives, I mean her daughter tried to kill her! ( Don’t get me wrong, Hollyleaf is my favourite cat)


-Mr. Potato

16 BlossomFall

Um hello Millie you have 2 other kits you know - Snowpelt

17 Jayfeather 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.
18 MossPelt

She wasn't supposed to be a medicine cat, she had a really bad brother, and I ran out of ideas :3 - Snowpelt

19 Brightheart

She lost half of her face, being named Lostface when Bluestar was leader, and some cats like Daisy insulted her because of her face (correct me if I'm wrong) - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

20 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

Hey, other guy in the comments, he didn't live a happy Gary Stu life at all. He is not a Gary Stu either. His life was sad. He lost spottedleaf, and then lost Bluestar. He had to deal with the struggles and responsibilities of being clan leader, and watched many of his loved ones die before him. His granddaughter died, and then his spottedleaf left, her spirit died. And he was killed, knowing he would never see her again. He had a very very tragic life.

Had to deal with all those difficult clan duties and grieving spotted leaf. When he finally meets her again, she dies. And he dies knowing he will never see his spottedleaf ever again... Deep!

Well he was bullied... So... Yeah. Being bullied is sad. He was bullied by sandstorm. Evil sandstorm

Nah. Firestar? Everyone else’s life was sad while he had such a happy Gary-Stu life! So happy when he was no longer in the spotlight. Then, got so angry when he was leader of the lake or something. He thinks he is the best and everyone stinks...WELL THAT IS WHAT I CALL A SELFISH LIFE.

21 Graystripe

Silverstream died giving birth to his kits. That's all the tragic things
I read about Greystripe. Also, from what I can tell, he's not dead yet. You never know, maybe his life will get better. The person who put this did not dead the later books. -Cloverkit of Darkclan

22 Ravenpaw

He had to leave the clan because of blood thirsty Tigerstar.

23 Snowfur


24 Twigbranch

Yes, I suppose being separated from your sister is going to make up the fact that she reunites with her sister, oh wait. Never mind! She decides to leave after saying, "I need to get my sister back! " All through the series. - Tiny_Flame

She had to leave her sister as a kit!

25 Lionblaze Lionblaze Lionblaze is a character in the Warrior Cats series . He is part of The Three, along with Jayfeather and Dovewing, and has the power of being undefeated in battle . However, the power if removed from him after the Clans are saved from the Dark Forest .

Lionblaze loved heathertail but could not be with her and she craked it than fell in love with cinderheart but only to be rejected - tallstar_is_the_best

So sad. I'm not going to explain why its sad. yall should read everybook first

He loved Heathertail, then blamed her for the attack that was actually becamse that KIT was bragging about the tunnels. [ though I am surprised that Breezepelt didn't tell everycat first. ] his sister, Hollyleaf, tried to kill Leafpool, their mother. Hollyleaf killed herself, and TONS of other stuff that I don't feel like typing right now.

26 Stonefur

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

27 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

... Just why? Spottedleaf was in love with Firestar. Preety sure Firestar was in love with her. She gave Bluestar the "Fire alone will save our clan" prophecy. She gave firestar the life of Love for all cats ou care for. She is very pretty to. So what is she in the top 11? she lost all she cared for because of that code breaker fox hearted bastard Clawface. I wish I could claw his face. I was so pissed when she died. Vite for Spottedleaf! The best medicine cat of all time!

She loved firestar and then dies and dies again 😭

28 Pinestar

He had his son and never got to see Tigerstar grow uo! How sad is this! mm!?
I'm the maker of this post and I hope u guys like this!

29 Tallstar

People his father was angry then died full with rage sad sad sad

30 Bramblestar Bramblestar

His father and half brother bullied him and tried to fores him into doing the wrong thing

31 Berrynose
32 Dustpelt

Every one of his kits died, and he had like 10 of them! After that, Ferncloud dies in the Dark Forest Battle.

33 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost

Uh, hello? His brother kills him when he tries to give him what he thought his brother wanted. His brother SHOVES A PEG THROUGH HIS HEART, AND THROWS HIS BODY IN THE LAKE. How sad is that? Everyone thinks he is evil. His brother died, and so did his father (when he was young) and his mother. He might want power, but that doesn't make his life any less of a tragedy.

34 Sol

He had such a picky and annoying mother 😿

35 Nightstar

He would not die if brokenstar had died

36 Nightstar

So saddd! 1

37 Birchfall
38 Mistystar

She only wanted to be loyal to her clan and help everyone, but instead, her best friend died. Her kits all died except for Reedwhisker. Her brother, foster mother, and birth mother were all murdered by Tigerstar. Her apprentice, Featherwhisker then dies tragically.

39 Violetshine

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.

40 Gray Wing

He loved Storm, and then his brother Clear Sky mated her instead! And then when she had kits, only one of them survived, Thunder, and when Gray Wing took him to Clear Sky, he rejected him! So, Gray Wing had to take care of him.

41 Half Moon

Half Moon was forced to live a life she never wanted after Jayfeather told her too! I am suprised this isn’t on the list already. Not hating on Jayfeather, by the way. Anyway, she loved Jayfeather/Jay’s Wing but he leaves her twice! She is heartbroken! All she wanted was a simple life with him and maybe some of their own kits, but no. Her destiny was to take on the burden of being the first healer/leader. I don’t know about you, but I never want to be forced to be an employee for a job I hate for the rest of my life.

42 Feathertail
43 Brokenstar Brokenstar

Brokenstar's backstory is not nearly as bad as the rest on this list, sorry honey! - Lilycat14192
