Top Ten Warrior Cats With the Saddest Lives


The Top Ten

1 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

Mother: Rain Flower
Father: Shell Heart
Brother: Oak Heart
Mate: Willow Breeze
Daughters: Willow Claw, Minnow Whisker, Silver Stream
Clan: River Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

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

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

(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 .

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

If he lived with fire star I would be happy

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! "

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.

Mother: White Wing
Father: Birch Fall
Sister: Dove Wing
Mate: Fern Song
Daughters: Bristle Whisker, Thrift Song
Son: Flip Tail
Clan: Thunder Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

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

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

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

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?

6 BreezePelt BreezePelt

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! - Shadowfrost

I don't like him, but he did have a pretty sad life. - Snowpelt

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.

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

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

Mother: Leaf Pool
Father: Crow Feather
Brothers: Breeze Pelt, Lion Blaze, Jay Feather
Clan: Thunder Clan - CreamstripeOfButterClan

OKAY IT WAS NOT HER FAULT. End of discussion. Hollybae

8 LongTail 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.

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

Poor guy. One of my fave warrior cats!

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

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

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

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.

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

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

He deserved what he got!

11 AshFur AshFur

He really loved SquirrelFlight - Snowpelt

He was rejected by Squirrelflight, and to me, that's really sad. - Oliveleaf

ASHFURS THE BEST! ( in my opion )

12 Daisy

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.

She's pretty cool to be honest, it's confirmed she killed a dark forest cat in the great battle. and despite all the blood and death that goes on there, she decides to stay in thunderclan. - fiyahstah

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.

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.

I love Maplesade and absolutely HATE Appledusk, freaklewish, and Ravenwing especially. All three deserve the dark forest!

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.

Yellowfang should be higher on this list. she was forced to become a med. cat, the thing with raggedstar, brokentail, she was accused of killing her siblings, and got exiled. pretty bad. - fiyahstah


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


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!

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!

Okay this is not the saddest life but... *tear* waaa!
i want my mommy.

16 BlossomFall

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

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.

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.

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

18 Crowfeather

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

He lived in private torment...

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

Crowfeather was actually one of the saddest characters. Think about it : His father died when he was barely born, so as his siblings. He only had his mother. He was bad influenced by his mentor, Mudclaw, and then he had to go on a trip and lose his warrior ceremony. In the trip, he is excluded and neglected by cats that think he's unbearable. Then, he falls in love with Feathertail, but someone coughcoughStormfurcoughcough tries to keep them apart. Then, he founds a tribe that have a big issue, and that's not their issue, and they won't let him go!. After, his love dies because of the stupid issue (Sharptooth) and he is being more excluded because he has no one that pittys him by his side. But the most important is that he never got over the grief of loosing Feathertail. He goes back to the clan, and then he meets someone (Leafpool) that makes him happy and able to love again. But their relationship is forbidden, so they run away, and they are happy for a few moments. But then they ...more

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 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.

21 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.

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!

22 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.

23 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

Dear all those who call him a gary stu: he has flaws? for example. he broke the warrior code so many times. sometime's he's just unreasonable. he lets kittypets into the clan. his obsession with spottedleaf.. and some more. he's also got good traits - that's what makes a good character. - fiyahstah

24 Tallstar Tallstar

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

25 Graystripe 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

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

26 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!


27 Snowfur Snowfur


28 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

29 Feathertail Feathertail

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

30 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

31 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 😭

32 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!

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 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.

35 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!

She has the worst name! - JellybirdLPS

36 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.

37 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.

38 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!

39 Berrynose
40 Dustpelt

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

41 Sol

He had such a picky and annoying mother 😿

42 Nightstar

He would not die if brokenstar had died

43 Nightstar

So saddd! 1

44 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.

45 Brokenstar Brokenstar

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

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
