Top Ten Warriors Cats Cliches

Even though we love the Warriors series, it does get a little repetitive, doesn't it?

The Top Ten

1 Forbidden Love

The amount of forbidden love stories in Warriors is Too Damn High!

This can get annoying, but I liked it. It made the books more exciting. - Minecraftcrazy530

I agree. Forbidden loves are pointless because everyone is forgiven in the end. Mistyfoot and Stonefur Forgive Bluestar in the end and Graystripe didn't get into much trouble for being with Silverstream and so on.

Part of why in my opinion, the series went downhill. - InfinateSuperstorm

2 Most of the Cats Are Related to Tigerstar, and Are Evil

How is Tawnypelt evil?! - IcetailofWishClan

Only Hawkfrost was evil - FinlandSkywalker

Tawnypelt and Mothwing aren't evil!

Tigerstar' great grandkits: Shadowkit, Lightkit, pouncekit, Sleekwhisker, Juniperclaw, Strikestone

3 Everybody Training In the Dark Forest

Brambleclaw was training in the dark forest for some time, and we were curious as to where his loyalties lied. Then, it got even more interesting when Ivypool joined the Dark Forest.

4 The Cat With 100 Kits

Actually this are real cats. Humans today have one or wo kids, but in normally wise she-cats should have one Litter pro year if shes able to have Thema.

Although this one tends to bother me less than others, there's characters like Ferncloud, Daisy and Sorreltail who are always in the nursery.

You mean Ferncloud?

There's Snowbird, who had 9 kits

5 The One Arrogant Clanmate

There's always someone isn't there? Foxheart, (Yellowfang's Secret) Dustpelt, etc.

This does annoy me a lot. Thistleclaw, Tigerclaw, Dustpelt, Rainflower (UGGH! ), Foxheart, Darktail (Sharpclaw kind of), etc. - Warriorcats

6 Kits That Look Nothing Like Their Parents

Actually Dovewing and Ivypool could've been genetically correct! But I agree. How did Brambleclaw not notice that the kit's weren't his?

This annoyed me, when a cat randomly gets black fur when his parents are brown and white

I agree with this, the only one of Leafpool's kits that looks like the parents is Hollyleaf. - Silvermoon77

Cats don’t have to look like their parents. They can look like other relatives. Genes

7 The Cats That Were Discarded or Unused

Hollyleaf was a good example of laziness. But at least they gave her a side story. Spottedleaf didn't become important until she died, and so on. Really, Erins?

HOLLYLEAF WASN'T A LAZY ADDITION, SHE WAS COOL AND INTERESTING. But I agree...Hazeltail, Mousewhisker, Lilyfall and her kits, Brightheart's new litter, MOLEPAW, etc

Leafshade, Ambermoon, Snowbush, Molepaw, Foxleap, Icecloud, etc.

8 Badgers

So many cats, even in the first series, were killed by badgers. Let us not forget the amazingly tragic death of Cinderpelt, ThunderClan's med cat.

Not all badgers are bad, just see what Midnight has to tell you.

BADGERS ARE EVIL! Chant it with me! Badgers are evil! Badgers are evil?

Cinder pelt, Molepaw, etc?

9 All the Cats That Look the Same

The most used looks in the Warriors series are as follows: orange tabby, tortoiseshell, gray, etc. Why not have more hairless cats like Rock?

How about more black cats, huh?

There should be more white and brown patched cats. They're not used often!

Like Jake, Firestar, Squirrelflight and Alderpaw?

10 ThunderClan are Heroes

I love cats from Thunderclan, but they do too much good stuff, they need some flaws, sorry.

Always. There never seems to be any flaws with this clan because they're all heroes in one way or another.

Thunderclan really annoys me because of this.

"Thunderclan are the good guys and Shadowclan are the bad guys" cliche. Why is Shadowclan always put in a bad light?

"Shadow" or "darkness" does not instantly mean they're evil.

And the other two clans (River and Wind) need more spotlight. The book series isn't called "Thunder(clan) Warriors"...

The Contenders

11 ThunderClan Cannot Keep Med Cats

Ever notice how ThunderClan cannot keep med cats? Spottedleaf, Yellowfang, and Cinderpelt all died not long after being in the books.

Well surely they can't keep their med cats from FALLING IN LOVE

They're effed up

Med cats broken the code:

Leafpool: most likely the worst one


Spottedleaf almost did

Goosefeather: attacked Stormkit

12 Boring Villain

Apart maybe, Sol or Scourge, the Warrior Cats villains are a bit cliched. Classic Warriors villain; They're toms, Cruel, Power hunger (Usually wants to take over the whole forest), only cares about fighting and being the strongest, doesn't care about anyone else and shows no personality outside of being evil. Let see who falls under these rules; Tigerstar, Hawkfrost, Brokenstar, Brokenstar, Darktail, Slash, One-eye etc.

Let's just, quite a lot. - Miststar

Yeah, Darktail is probably one of the best villains and he had a super stupid backstory. But he's still like EVERY OTHER VILLAIN! Actually Mapleshade is the best now that I think about. She's definitely different and doesn't seek power.

Yeah, it's not that they're 'boring', it's just that they are evil for dumb ( or no ) reasons. I love Mapleshade because she actually has a complex, through-and-through backstory of love. That's basically it for females. While in males, it's Brokenstar, Thistleclaw, Tigerstar, Hawkfrost, Darktail, One-eye, Slash, Redwillow, Scourge, etc. The only other female villain I can think of is Bee from Dawn of the Clans who I don't really count as one of the biggest antagonists. Just like, take over the Clans, be the strongest, kill all the good guys, train evil cats... I guess some minor " villains " could be Roach and Sleekwhisker, followers of Darktail. And I'm pretty sure they're both female. Although... I feel like Darktail makes Tigerstar look bad. What if they were in battle with each other?

13 Silver Tabby with Blue Eyes

Omsc most annoying thing ever. The most beautiful she-cats are always the silver tabbies with blue eyes. Feathertail, Silverstream, etc. And then almost every fanfiction out there has a main character that's a silver tabby and their names are things like Moon-something or Spirit-something or Dream-something. Tortoiseshells and black cats are just as beautiful, you all.

It isn't even genetically possible

Ugh, this is so annoying! - InfinateSuperstorm

It’s called Silverstream Syndrome.

14 Mary Sues

Ugh, I just hate Mary Sues/Gary Stus. They seem to make the story or roleplay boring and are practically the same.
Tabby with special eyes, bullied as a kit, prophecy about them, forbidden relationships, not being caught breaking the code becoming leader, never dying...
When will we get a story about a normal warrior who has to do warrior things, like hunt for the Clan and fight foxes and not become leader or whatever?


15 Firestar x Spottedleaf

I totally hate this ship

Such a disgusting ship that literally had no chemistry at all.

Firestar, just get over Spottedleaf. Just...please. Just do it. She's dead, she was never an important cat to the series...while Sandstorm has gone through so much for you. "Sandstorm, you will never be my second, only my first." (That's not an actual quote) Everyone can see you didn't mean that, Firestar. Just ditch the tortoiseshell, for Llama God's sake!


16 Shadowclan is Evil

Let's just say this is all according to Thunderclan. Because Thunderclan has their very big share of evil cats. Bigger then Shadowclan!

They have Shadow in the name, so they have to be evil! they don't.

None of the clans are really "evil". - InfinateSuperstorm

Yeah ShadowClan is not evil the Place of No stars is. But many people think they r! come on have some imagination! ShadowClan is actually smart! They just get in battles with ThunderClan a lot. But they aren’t EVIL!

17 Cats Excluded and Included in the Allegiances

Rosetail was not listed in Into the Wild and Smokepaw was listed as an apprentice THREE BOOKS AFTER HE FALLS OFF A CLIFF

18 Disabilities!

I WANT A MUTE CAT! There I said it. - But really, it's always something like a damaged leg or something. Yeah Jayfeather was blind but he ha powers! I would like to see a story about a mute warrior that DOESN'T have any powers to make up for it.

19 The Leader Always Picks the Less Experienced Cat for a Deputy

Lol this is so true


So true...

20 Main Character is Always Leader

Brambleclaw, Firestar, Squirrelflight will be leader and so on and so forth

In almost every fanfiction I've read this happens
- Primrosetail

Period. {super additions don't count}

21 Medicine Cats Falling in Love
22 The obligatorily famine/drought/ disease/two-leg invasion/fire the cats have to deal with in every single book.
23 If Your Prefix Is Snow, You're Most Likely To Die

It just occurs to me that a lot of cats who died have the prefix 'Snow'.

-Others I can't think of

Geez, who's next?

24 Cats Having Amber or Blue Eyes

Why was this so common? Maybe it was an author's favorite colors.

It's almost always amber or blue. Give us some more eye colors! - InfinateSuperstorm

Why can you have green or yellow eyes, there just as pretty...

25 No Twoleg Notices When They Run a Cat Over with a Car

Yeah its weird

26 Awesome Kittypets

Not that it's bad

It annoys me when Thunderclan even says bad stuff about but the whole of Thunderclan is half kittypet.

27 In ThunderClan, All the Young Cats Die

What about Hollytuft, her brother, and her sister? - IcetailofWishClan

Do any of you still realize that Cloudtail, Brightheart, Brackenfur, Greystripe, Sandstrom and others are still alive? I am not trying to be mean, but some cats have to die. - Silvermoon77

28 Ships that Will Never Happen

For example: ashfur and scourge

Most of those ships are with dead cats,why ship dead cats.

29 Prophecies

I mean, like, ALL the mains have to be included in a prophecy of some sort... ~flutterkit

30 Prophecy and Dumb Stuff
31 Riverclan is a Reincarnation of Leopardclan
32 Pointless Deaths

Cough every kit Cough

33 Overpowered Cats

When cats take down foxes or eagles. Sorry mate, it's just not happening.

34 Evil Tom Cats

Look at all of these evil tom cats

Tigerstar, Ashfur, Clawface, Brokenstar, Scourge, Bone, Breezepelt, Darktail, Hawkfrost, Darkstripe, Oneeye, Thistleclaw and Tigerheart (if you consider him evil.)

We need more evil shecats like Mapleshade!

35 Windclan is Nice and Kind of Weak

They r not! One star many times has tried to point this out to Firestar. I love Firestar, though don’t get me wrong. But WindClan can be mean and strong about AT LEAST HALF THE TIME
