Top Ten Warrior Cats With the Saddest Lives


The Top Ten

1 CrookedStar

Hislife was so sad! I cried whenever someone died...

Defiantly. Everyone he loved, he lost. This includes: Rainflower - his mother - she mistreated him and hated him because of a crooked jaw. Willowbreeze - his mate - passed away after having kits. Minnowkit and Willowkit - two of his three kits - passed away Silverstream - his other daughter - passed away after having kits and so on. He got everything that he always wanted but lost everything that really mattered to him. - loafieh

His life was super bad but he put his head up high and powered through it all.

SO SAD! - sydneyhelget

2 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

She chose to have a sad life! Not my fault - BloodFang

I also think she has the saddest life.

Of course. I almost cried reading her story! She had a father that didn't love her, a sister who died, a mother who died when they were young, 2 kits to give up, 1 kit who died, and a mate 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

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 .

If he lived with fire star I would be happy

I agree, Firestar wouldn't of hated him and he wouldn't of been a threat to the clans. So Whitestorm couldn't of died. - BloodFang

He is one of the only warrior villains to have a reason of villainy poor tiny(love the name tiny too) so Socks and Ruby were not very nice to him and neither was Quince and when he was little he didn't have much of an evil personality and he has a great reason to kill tigerstar after tigerstar tried to kill him as a kit so lots of non-ambitious cats want revenge too he seems like crowkit too so cute and tiny and adorable and kind just tiny was bullied and crowkit wasnt

Uhm, I think Scourge is a Sociopath. Yes, Tigerpaw attacked him and they didn't let em into the clan, but he would have STILL been evil. He have a hunger for power like Tigerclaw/star. For all those people who say "oh, Baby scourge didn't do anything wrong.." and "It was all Socks and Ruby's fault" I'm not trying to bash your opinion, but for you thinking that think abour what he thought. he Thinks "I'll show them...I'LL SHOW THEM ALL" while he was still in Kitty-Pet place. So, he was evil BEFORE he left his home. He craves for power and blood lust. Is that normal? I think not.

She almost DIED! I think that Dovewing does not deserve such a good sister! - sydneyhelget

Ivypool did more than the prophecy cats to stop the dark forest! - fiyahstah

Ivypool needs more love! Everyone likes. Her mary-sue sister! It reminds me of high school. Like one sister is all cool and popular in the other sister isn't.

5 BriarLight

Part of it was long tails own fault listen clearly guys this is why I HATE LONGTAIL he tries to save a mouse and cripples another cat aka poor Briarpaw. Longtail in my opinion is overall stupid. Blinded by a rabbit? Dumbest warrior. How was he a warrior ever?

She lost all her hind leg use and then her mom babied her forever. I mean, if I was her I would hate it so much I'd go crazy. - Pebblepaw

Mother: Millie
Father: Gray Stripe
Sisters: Blossom Fall, Feather Tail
Brothers: Bumble Stripe, Storm Fur
Clan: Thunder Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

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

6 BreezePelt BreezePelt

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! - sydneyhelget

I like Breeze pelt and Nightcloud! Crowfeather was so mean to them!

Mother: Night Cloud
Father: Crow Feather
Sister: Holly Leaf
Brothers: Lion Blaze, Jay Feather
Mate: Heather Tail
Daughters: Smoke Haze, Brindle Wing
Clan: Wind Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

Why are we all putting down Crowfeather though? Nightcloud brainwashed Breezepelt to be horrible and think his father is horrible. Crowfeather actually had a heart. Breezepelt life was Nightclouds fault 100%

7 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.

The writers decided to kill Hollyleaf right after she came back, and I won't get over that. I love her - fiyahstah

Holly leaf did not mean to kill ashfur, she was ashamed of herself for killing him.


She made her life bad by killing someone for no reason. Her fault. Glad she died. - Pebblepaw

8 LongTail LongTail

He had to become an elder early because a rabbit blinded him as he became a laughingstock of the fandom. He tried to impress mousefur but failed. He was hated by everyone’s favorite character, Firestar. Everyone thought he was a traitor. He had to watch his friend die. He got one of the worst introductions is warriors readers seeing him as a bully. People have him when sandstorm was a bigger bully than him. Tigerclaw was his friend but was a traitor. Swiftpaw was denied being a warrior. He has to swallow up hid pride and beg fireheart to make his apprentice a warrior. Longtail’s mentor was a traitor. One of his apprentices is a jerk. Longtail died getting fresh kill. This character needs a rest forever.

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

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.

Poor guy. One of my fave warrior cats!

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.

Maybe not the most sad life but definitely a sad life. She wanted to become a warrior, it was her dream. She was also in love with Firestar, which is canon. But, when she got hurt and broke her leg, there was nothing anyone could do. She had to give up her dream and the love of her life so that she could continue to serve her clan. She died the death of a warrior, saving Sorreltail and her kits from badgers.

Mother: Frost Fur
Sister: Bright Heart
Brothers: Bracken Fur, Thorn Claw
Clan: Thunder Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

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.

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

10 TigerStar 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, more.

Hi life was never sad...well, when Pinestar rejected him...huh, anyway, getting back to the point. HE KILLED INNOCENT CATS! He chose to do that! I HATE him, kill...kill...kill...MOHAHA - BloodFang

In the end he deserved to die, but it was only because of his past experiences.

He deserved what he got!

His life was never sad

13 Yellowfang Yellowfang

First' she loses Silverflame. This makes her very sad, and she is constantly teased and taunted by Foxheart. She loves Raggedstar, but Foxheart is always trying to make him her mate. She could feel the pain of other cats, so she had to give up her life-long dream of being a warrior. Raggedstar was devastated, and she accidentally had his kits. Two died, and Brokenstar was the only survivor. She had to give him up to Lizardstripe, who treated him poorly. She had to watch Brokenstar get bullied, and he rejected her after the bullying. She has to watch him become evil, and he exiles her from the clan for a crime she didn’t commit. She goes to ThunderClan, and is accepted. She still has to deal with her son, and is forced to blind him. He dies at her paws, and she is left for only Firestar and Cinderpelt. She then dies a hero, and lives in StarClan.

Yellowfang should be in at least the top 5.
First, she faced her destiny that would completely change her life
Then, she had kits with Raggedstar and two died
Then, she watched Brokenkit get bullied by his foster mother and foster siblings.
Then, She watches Brokenstar turn into the monster he is
Sad, right? So sad that when Yellowfang died in Rising Storm, she refused Firestar’s help.

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.

14 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.

Yeah people think she's bad but she's just.. Sad and alone.

Why is she even in the dark forest? That's where the cats who drove her insane and forced her to put her kits into a dangerous situation that killed them deserve to go! She lost everything...

I cried when I read Mapleshade's vengeance. She had the right to do all those things! No cats understand her.

Mapleshade was also lonely as a loner. All she tried to do was love.

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

This cat is just a stupid brown tabby cat with with zero brains. She went off with whiny and stupid Crowfeather and basically killed her own mentor. She yelled at Cinderpelt to when the great medicine cat caught her mooning over Crowdung. She stupidly hissed at her that "You don't know what love feels like! " when Cinderpelt DID. This annoying excuse for a character is extremely overrated and deserves now HAYE


It is so sad, I cry as I write this. It was so unfair! She was in love, but couldn't do anything about it and ran away! She was so loyal to her Clan and came back. It was horrible for her, two of her own kits hated her!

I Love Her

16 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.

But he had the "power of the stars in his paws..." gosh darnit jayfeather! you act like youve got the worst life! - JellybirdLPS

Excuse me -_____-
How dare u put Jayfeather 17, he had such a sad life, Leaving his warrior dreams and becoming and medic. He left Halfmoon for the good of his clan. He had to bear the truth about his parents and forgave his mother because he truly loved her. His dear sister left and died
And Overall HE IS BLIND
poor kitty u_u

17 BlossomFall

Poor Blossomfall. To have an absentee father and then to have your mother pay no attention to you for your annoying injured sister? I couldn’t.

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

18 Gray Wing

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.

And, um, why is he under BlossomFall that doesn't state her case and Tiger star! Like Tigerstar, really? - BloodFang

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

Seriously, he has to leave his mom, he likes Bright stream and Storm then Clear sky takes them as his mates! Then poor Turtle tail dies right when he realizes he really loved her, Clear sky goes insane and causes the great battle, he watches his mom die in front of him, and when he is finally happy he dies. that's one of the saddest lives to me. He should be mentioned more by the modern clans.

Clear Sky took away one of the cats Gray Wing loved then made Gray Wing look after his son. Then Gray Wing gets ill and dies in a whole a few minutes after he is reunited with his kit! His brother thanked him once and that was it!

19 MossPelt

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

20 Crowfeather

Poor Crowfeather...Deadfoot died, Ashfoot died, Feathertail died, Leafpool was forbidden to love him, He only mated Nightcloud for loyalty to his clan, He never loved Breezepelt, And he never new until the Omen Of The Stars that Lionblaze Jayfeather and Hollyleaf were his kits.

He lived in private torment...

Anyone else remember that he tried to kill himself?! - JellybirdLPS

I don’t get why everyone hates in Crowfeather so much. Sure he’s annoying at times but if you look at what happens to him he has a really sucky life. If you ask me he should come before Bluestar. At the end of the day, Bluestar wasn’t that great a person

21 Brightheart Brightheart

Shes surprisingly underrated. Poor Brightheart. Dang, this is why I hate Bluestar. I mean Lostface!?

She had to watch her friend get slaughtered by a dog that ripped half her face off and then was named LOST FACE it’s the cruelty that completely shakes me.

22 Snowfur Snowfur

I think her sad life is her said death. When her mate died they were forever separated.

No LoVe 4 SnoWfuR? - BloodFang


23 Tallstar Tallstar

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

Tallstar's book was such such a good book, but it was very sad..His father wanted him to become a tunneler, but he didn't want to he was bullied by some other cats (i forgot there names )nHis father denied him and rejected him and when some rouges came to visit, he died and tallstar was so angry, he litterally almost killed a few cats, I haven't read his story in a long time, but all I know is he died without a mate, even though the writers didn't mention him and jake being together, like they did with ravenpaw and barely. He didn't really have anyone to love, I mean sure he had jake as his friend but jake had to quince and nutmeg, and when rusty joined he treated him like a sun, but still he had to die when the clans were falling apart. He is one of my favorite cats to this day <3 -Avella

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

24 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf

Best cat ever

... 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 😭

25 Graystripe Graystripe


Everyone Graystripe was related to died or abandoned him! If that’s not sad then I don't know what sad is!

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

26 Bramblestar Bramblestar

He had a sad life no one trusted him and his brother hated him his sister went to shadow clan his father was bad and his mother died! - Firedawn

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

It's so sad how Bramblestar wasn't trusted and how no one trusted him because they thought he would turn out to be like his father and just because he looked exactly like him. He's my favorite warrior cat. The first time they introduced him no one trusted him but in my opinion he acted like he was a different from his father. all he wanted was to be trusted and not judged of what he looked like or who his kin was. Even Firestar didn't trust him at first. Come on don't judge someone one by their apearence judge them on there personality and how they act. that's how firestar, squirrelflight, and etc. got so close to him.

27 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 named Rusty.

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

Kinda sad.

28 Feathertail Feathertail

Feathertail had to die a sad death while Crowfeather and stormfur right next to her forcing her way threw to say goodbye

29 Ravenpaw Ravenpaw

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

Because he knew of tigerstars blood thirsty dreams of becoming leader tigerheart was suspicious about him after he killed redtail poor thing!

Greypaw and firepaw (apprentices back then) helped him on his way to the two leg place to escape tigerheart and his claws to live with the loner named barely

After the clan left the forest to escape twolegs we never saw ravenpaw again!


30 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.

31 Birchfall

He didn't train in the DF. I thought that he was better than that. But still... he had a pretty bad life.

He losted his parents and all his siblings. Isn't that a sad live>=? plus he trained in the DF

32 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 has the worst name! - JellybirdLPS

She had to leave her sister as a kit!

33 Half Moon

Mother: Rising Moon
Father: Chasing Clouds
Mate: Jay's Wing
Clan: Unknown - CreamstripeOfButterClan

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.

34 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.

35 Stonefur Stonefur

Stonefur is so underrated and forgotten? - fiyahstah

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

36 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!

37 Snowtuft

I love him

38 Gray Gray

Huh? not even a cat - BloodFang

Who even is that? - fiyahstah

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 Brokenstar Brokenstar

He was treated badly by his fake mother, and was not really bullied by others. Then he was led to the dark path, and he killed many cats along with his own father and apps. Later he was chased out of his clan and blinded, and killed by his own mother.

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

41 Darkstripe Darkstripe

Darkstripe deserves to be highter! At least number 10 or 11!
His father died before his birth!
How would you feel, if you grow up without father!
And also Darkstripe was abused as a kit!

42 Berrynose
43 Dustpelt

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

44 Sol

He had such a picky and annoying mother 😿

45 Nightstar

He would not die if brokenstar had died

46 Nightstar

So saddd! 1

47 Mistystar 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.

48 Squirrelflight Squirrelflight
49 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

Just think, he couldn't be with the cat he loved most, his daughter died, his parents both died and his brother was deformed and he couldn't be leader
