Top Ten Warriors Cats Cliches

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

The Top Ten

Forbidden Love

Honestly, forbidden love is only good if done right. The concept seems cute at first but it's just so overused...
I'm hoping that one day we'll get a warrior code rewrite that will bring more flexibility to forbidden relationships

Some of them were good, like LeafxCrow and BluexOak, but most of them are GARBAGE, like Tigerheart and Dovewing.

I'm sick of it. dove and tiger? no. Blue and oak? (I prefer crooked anfd blue but eh) and so on, its just to common nowadays and I'm tired of it.

This list is so bad like seriously I just finished writing about the flaws In a list just like this. It's a list called top ten things wrong with warrior cats if you really need an explanation (and I know there are some gay ships but not enough.)

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

Well actually Scourge is Squirrelfight's uncle so he is Bramblestar's uncle in law so he is Tigerstar's brother in law. He also is related to Hawkfrost but that's all. And Not all the cats are evil including the half of thunderclan he is related to so

His kits: Tawnypelt, Brambleclaw, Hawkfrost, Mothwing, (their dead brother). His grandkits: Flametail, Dawnpelt, Tigerheart.

Jake is everyone's father. Jake is your father. - Moonkitti, 2016

How is Tawnypelt evil?!

Everybody Training In the Dark Forest

Tigerstar(heart), Crookedstar, Ivypool, Tigerstar, Thistleclaw, Blossomfall, Lionblaze, Birchfall...

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.

Is super overused and got old really quickly

The Cat With 100 Kits

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

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.

There's Snowbird, who had 9 kits

And Milkweed, who had 8 kits (Dawn of the Clans)
Ferncloud, who had 7 kits

You mean Ferncloud?

The One Arrogant Clanmate

*Spoiler! *

Sorry to tell you this, but Berrynose does eventually become deputy to Bramblestar, even though Squirrelflight is still alive...

THANK YOU! Whoever said that about Berrynose! You are now my favorite! IT FEELS LIKE NO ONE HAS READ THE BROCKEN CODE! People read it!

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

Berry nose does he get to be deputy

Kits That Look Nothing Like Their Parents

Well, say a cat with white fur and green eyes mates with someone that has grey fur and blue eyes, and they have a brown kit with amber eyes. This may seem impossible, but say the cat with white fur has a parent with brown fur and green eyes, while the other has white fur and amber eyes. Now, lets say that the grey cat has a parent with grey fur and blue eyes, and another with grey fur and amber eyes. This makes it technically possible for the two original cats to have a kit with brown fur and amber eyes, it’s just that the chances are slim.

Yeah! Hollyleaf looked like her dad a little, but Jayfeather looked nothing like Crowfeather or Leafpool, though, he did look a bit like Ashfoot...Crowfeather's mother...Lionblaze looked a little like Leafpool.

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

Guys. They're cats and are fighting, eating mice. How do you think they're smart enough to know GENETICS?

The Cats That Were Discarded or Unused

hollytuft, leafshade, the only underused cat who got attention was fernsong but only bc he's ivypools husband

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?

Yasss you hear about a cat then there just gone!


All the Cats That Look the Same

Gingr cats are not that common! We need a cat with a amber eye and a yellow eye! And a lavender lilac cat who has green eyes! Give me a cream blue grey cat! Beach fang for the name I guess!

Can we please get a dilute tortoiseshell? or a tabico? just no more ginger or gray cats...

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?


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

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.

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

Let's not forget that Midnight is a badger, too.

ThunderClan Cannot Keep Med Cats

Basically they're all forced to become med cats:

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

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

Ok,no. Leafpool WANTED TO be a med cats. Also, Yellofang, Alderheart, WWORK WITH ME HERE!

The Contenders

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.

we need a windclan hero...
the only windclan cat to get his/her own book or be the protagonist was tallstar

Mary Sues

If you need help trying to have a non MarrySue character, just get a positive trait (e.g honesty and talkative) and turn it into a flaw by looking at the bad outcomes of that trait (The character can be dangerous because at gatherings they can give away Clan weaknesses because they are always chatting, and their honesty means that they don't lie about it).

Firestar, spottedleaf ,fernsong, and many others! Firestar could have been a great character if he had not been made too great!

Dovewing, Star Flower, Feathertail, Silverstream, Whitestorm (he’s wonderful, but you have to admit he’s a total Gary-Stu), Violet Dawn, Moth Flight (maybe not 100% Sue, but pretty much), and even MORE! There are WAY to many Sue’s/Stu’s!

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?


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.

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?

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.

They're all so 2d. They're all greedy, cold, cruel, ambitious and power-hungry.

Firestar x Spottedleaf

spottedleaf was in the nursary alongside whitestorm, who was in the nursary with TIGERSTAR.
whoa. she's old enough to be fire's mom

I totally hate this ship

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

First,it's technically pedophilia. Firepaw was so much younger. Think of it as a 40 year old dating a 14 year old.
Second,she was a MED CAT. She cannot have a mate or kits.
Third,It barely had any development. Most likely,it was lust over love,as they barely talked.
Also Firestar still trying to choose over Sandstorm and Spottedleaf,and him always describing her "sweet scent"

Silver Tabby with Blue Eyes

Being a silver tabby with blue eyes doesn't make you "prettier" than other cats.

Millie,Feathertail and Silverstream,whom in Clan beauty standards,were considered gorgeous

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’s so annoying at this point, and the only one that wasn’t a Mary-Sue is Millie.

Medicine Cats Falling in Love

I don't know, It's a bit repetitive but I think it's cute. They should tackle this issue in the Broken Code

I feel like erin hunter just put that to anony us RIGHT (we see you ERIN)

To be honest,it doesn't bother me,and it annoys me for people to get mad. You can't help falling in love,or withholding certain emotions.

Oh my gosh, if this happens one more time, GET RID OF THAT RULE.

The obligatorily famine/drought/ disease/two-leg invasion/fire the cats have to deal with in every single book.

Ideas for problems in the book without it being really dramatic:
- Cat doesn't feel they fit in.
- An enemy tries to take their territory.
- Cat overhears a character plotting something against the Clans, but the cat doesn't know whether to let the leader know.

If you are going to put a famine, drought etc. in the book, try to make it have a plot twist or bad outcome. If you want to be different, maybe make a cat help someone out of famine or drought but in secret, instead of them experiencing it.

Well, Those are all problems that usually happen. I can say that they do get boring, but still. They don’t always deal with those problems.



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!

Shadowclan is not evil you fleabrains! And just because they have shadow in the clan name doesn't make them evil.It makes them sound cool unlike Thunderclan.

It would be cool to get a story where ThunderClan and ShadowClan team up to fight some outside force.

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

Good Always Wins!

Remember there has to be some balance. Bad can't always win and good can't always win.
When the Clan cats fought the Dark Forest, they ended up winning the battle, but some cats got killed and some Clan cats went on the side of the Dark Forest. This is a good example of balance because the Dark Forest killed some cats and gained some cats in the Dark Forest (bad winning), but the Clan cats won the battle (good winning).

Darktail came dangerously close to winning and he's a villain

I wanted scorge to win and then to be under scourges control. Distopian future with cats!

Yeah! A villain rules the clans and kills many cats (except Graystripe&Ivypool) but finally, after like 4 books, a hero rises up and defeats the villain!

Main Character is Always Leader

Excluding super editions and side stories, only two main characters have become leader

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

Deputy isn't too bad, but leader... come on.

Almost true

Ships that Will Never Happen

I love shipping weird things like scorge and sandstorm! Firestar and cinderpelt fall in love in one au I wrote where tiger star leads and he also only has three working legs! Crow feather and tawnypelt could have been awesome if they had done it right!

For example: ashfur and scourge

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

yeah, every fandom and series has this. They can't make every ship canon

Cats Excluded and Included in the Allegiances

Yes! Whenever a leader annonces "A new litter has been born to Blahblah", I literally ALWAYS lose my spot searching, and combing through the dang Allegiances, looking for the darn kits names!

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

I think that there should be a kit section in the allegiances. It would take ages and would be useless because kits grow up so fast in the books... but we have an apprentice section and they also go into another rank in six moons and a kit section would make it easier for people so you don’t have to go scouting in the books because you just couldn’t remember that book where that one character is a kit. My fanfiction allegiances have it, so why not the official books. to be honest, if you know your characters well, it should / will be easy to add kits! #JusticeForKits

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

Yeah most PEOPLE stop and try to HELP the cats they SLAUGHTERED.

Yeah its weird

That is weird

No normal cat as main character

If there was a "normal" cat as main character then the books wouldn't be as interesting

Lemme see... Leafpool is a med cat who falls in love with Crowfeather, not a normal cat, Firestar saved the Clans too many times, he's special, Jayfeather has powers, Lionblaze has powers, and all o that main characters have something different.

It's always powers,prochecies and stopping calamities with the main character. No normal life

Seriosly. Not every main character should have powers. But I do love the books so...

Good vs Evil

Sometimes the other side is not necessarily evil! They have their beliefs. But noo,it's always 'they're so cruel! they're so evil! 11! 1'

I agree. We should have more morally gray characters
