Top 10 Best Warriors Medicine Cats

The Top Ten
1 Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She is a small, fluffy, sleek and soft-furred, smoky dark gray she-cat with wide blue eyes. She started out as a Warrior apprentice, but was forced to train to be a medicine cat instead after a monster breaking her leg on the Thunderpath. She died saving Sorreltail and her newborn kits from badgers. She new of her death in advance, but accepted... read more

Even after she lost her leg she persisted as a medicine cat. I was so happy when I found out Cinderheart is her reincarnated self who got to be a warrior thanks to Jayfeather. I felt so bad for her when she misinterpreted the fire and tiger prophecy. She never had a strong connection to StarClan but she was meant to be a warrior so don't hate on her. She may have told Leafpool not to be with Crowfeather, but she was mentored by Yellowfang, and we all know how Yellowfang's relationship turned out. She was trying to stop that from happening to Leafpool.

Cinderpelt is kind and sweet to injured cats and cats around her. Even though she doesn't have the same sensitivity to StarClan that other medicine cats have, she still tries her best to be the best medicine cat she can be. Even after Silverstream's death, she felt like she was a failure. But she still looked up to being the best cat she could be.

2 Yellowfang Yellowfang was a ThunderClan medicine cat in the original series of Warriors. She initially was a medicine cat from ShadowClan, but she was banished by her son, Brokenstar. She was then found by Firestar, who was then Firepaw, and brought into ThunderClan. Her last words were "Thank you for bringing me to Thunderclan. Tell Bluestar I have always been grateful for the home she gave me. This is a good... read more

She was such a great medicine cat. I know that she fell in love with Raggedstar, but he was CLAN LEADER. He should never have responded to her even if it would break her heart. Don't forget that it's not just the medicine cat's fault when they find a mate-the other cat should not respond to them. And that rule should never have been made in the first place anyway. I love Yellowfang.

Yellowfang was a very loyal ThunderClan medicine cat and was a great mentor to Cinderpelt, teaching her all the things she needs to know. Yellowfang was also a loyal ShadowClan medicine cat and to the son she bor in secret, Broken star. She was a wonderful friend to Firepaw and was kind and gentle towards other cats.

She is the best character EVER I already read Yellowfang's secret 10,000 times. When she died I was crying my eyes out and I would not come out of my room. I wish she was #1.

3 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, emotions, and walk into other cats dreams, He was born blind. according to the Warrior Cats Wiki Jayfeather is a lean, mottled, pale gray tabby tom with blind, pale blue eyes like a jay's wing. He has thin and silky fur, and a scar running down... read more

Even though he's blind, snappy, and short-tempered, he really is a good sot medicine cat that cares about his Clan. I thought it was fun to read when cats kept pitying him and he got so mad! Though one thing I would fix about him was to stop hating on Brightheart. I hate Breezepelt because he tried to kill Poppyfrost and Jayfeather. I'm on The Forgotten Warrior by the way. Jayfeather is one of the only cats that believes both Ivypool and Dovewing when they report back to him about stuff. Moonstar of ThunderClan

I love Jayfeather, in my opinion Jayfeather is the best medicine cat or at least the second best. And even if he's snappy and short-tempered, he really stands up for himself and for all blind cats. He should have never broke his stick because that means: NO MORE HALF MOON! I think that some of Jayfeather's friends were Cinderheart and Brairlight, I would have to agree with him. And he is knowledgeable, he knows how to swim and he taught Cinderheart how to. He hates WindClan and water. I also would bite someone's head off if someone were pitying me if I were blind. And Jayfeather should have never been treated unequally from his Clanmates. The kits are SCARED of him, he's just like everyone else (just he's sightless). I would have his power, I want it. - Dovefeather of ThunderClan

4 Spottedleaf Spottedleaf was a medicine cat under Bluestar's leadership in the forest territories. She was born as Spottedkit to Adderfang and Swiftbreeze alongside her littermates, Redkit and Willowkit. Initially, Spottedpaw was apprenticed to Thrushpelt; however, she decided to become a medicine cat with Featherwhisker as her new mentor. After earning her medicine cat name, Spottedleaf received a prophecy from... read more

Spottedleaf is my favorite cat in the entire series. She had to sacrifice so much. Both lives were for Firestar, who she loved until the very end. Anyone who shows hate to her will need to deal with me first. She's the absolute best. Better than Cinderpelt, Yellowfang, or any of the other medicine cats.

Okay. So, we all need to talk. Everyone hates spottedleaf, for what? "She's so perfect!" "She rolls in a field of flowers just to smell nice" Not true you immigrants. She smelled like flowers because she just smelled like them! She's not perfect. What kind of "perfect" Cat dies in the first book? And a second time! She is not obsessed with FireStar. If she was, she wouldn't have give her life to Sandstorm. Anyways.. SPOTTEDLEAF SUPREMACY

Spottedleaf was the best medicine cat of ALL TIME! I don't get but on Twitter and Instagram, etc, I have been seeing alit of people against Spottedleaf? I mean, why?! She was so amazing! I really love her she was just great, and so kind hearted!
-Moonsong medicine cat of ThunderClan

5 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

I hate Leafpool, she broke the Warrior Code just to be with Crowfeather, like take the Warrior Code seriously. She is just a crow-food-eating foxhesrt with a mangy pelt! Leafpool should have never got a second chance and I'm happy that she's finally dead! She was rude to Jayfeather (Jaypaw at the time). She also lied to her children, if you're about to have kits, switch to being a warrior. And have a mate in your Clan, not in a different one. Crowfeather and Leafpool was a foolish ship and they should have never met each other. I cannot say how much I hate her, SHE'S A FOOL! She didn't care for Jayfeather just because he was blind and she kept snapping at him about he walked in others dreams when he couldn't control it. - Dovefeather of ThunderClan

I love her so much. Leafpool haters, remember that she was very responsible about her relationship with Crowfeather, and remembered her sister who wanted a family. She fixed the mess she made and then Hollyleaf messed it all up for her again and that's why I hate Hollyleaf. And besides, she may have broken two rules of the warrior code but one should never have been made and the second was broken by the great Bluestar.

6 Littlecloud

I love Littlecloud! Without Littlecloud, Briarlight would be watching ThunderClan from the stars! Though I strangely dislike Cinderpelt . . .
Littlecloud is a great medicine cat. He would have never liked being a warrior anyway. Sorting herbs and training apprentices was more like the Littlecloud everyone knows. - Moonstar of ThunderClan

Littlecloud is just ment to be a medicine cat. He is the perfect size and just the right amount of kindness. He had no wish to fight and he just suits the role as a medicine cat. Littlecloud is kind and well known throughout the Clans.

Littlecloud seeked shelter in ThunderClan with Whitethroat during ShadowClan's Great Sickness. Thankfully, Cinderpelt cared for them and sent them away as night dawned. Once the sickness ended, Littlecloud was inspired by Cinderpelt to become a med cat. He was a great med cat and lived for many, many long moons. His death was never shown, but he is remembered as a brave and loyal med cat.

7 Mothwing Mothwing is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series Warrior cats. She is a golden she-cat with amber eyes and darker gold dapples. She's one of the refugees currently living in ShadowClan, She's the daughter of Tigerstar (The Prophecies Begins) and Sasha, sister of Hawkfrost and Tadpole. She was known for being the first medicine cat who did not believe in StarClan.

Mothwing in my opinion was a great choice of RiverClan medicine cat. Who CARES if her mother was a rogue?! I know I sure don't! What matters is how much being a medicine cat (or anything else) matters to you! Trust me, no other cat could replace Mothwing. Not in a life time!
-Moonsong medicine cat of ThunderClan

I definitely love Mothwing! Although she always denied StarClan even after The Great Battle with Dark Forest, it was for a reason! Reason: She didn't believe, firstly, because her mother was Sasha, who was not a Clan cat and didn't really believe in how the Clans acted with their Warrior code and all that. Even though she had all that evidence around her, she just denied it all! Mothwing's purpose was not just for healing. She had to see a different way of things to convince Jayfeather to do it too! She is sweet and stubborn, kind and caring, but most hate her because of her beliefs. They are just different from theirs! Why are those haters so rude? She has to carry the weight of being Tigerstar (1)'s daughter, and a rouge's too. Sasha always loved her, even in the darkest times. Mothwing knows she might not become part of StarClan because she doesn't believe in it, but who knows? What if she has secret feelings?

8 Runningnose

Runningnose is just the perfect cat to be medicine cat. He is normally teased because he is a medicine cat and can't cure his own sickness. Well there was no cure to his sickness so there was no reason to make fun of him.

I used to make fun of him, and I laughed whenever he sniffed or touched muzzles with some cat, but then I read Yellowfang's book...he's so loveable! Sure, he taunted brokenkit, but HE actually stopped! And he was so adorable when he hung around yellowfang, I was proud of him. He was so kind to his mentor, and supported her throughout. He was thoughtful, considerate and such a cool medicine cat! He doesn't let his nose bog him down; (out of context that sounds kinda weird:) he continues to help those around him, and continues to be an incredible cat.

Runningnose was Yellowfang's loyal apprentice. Unlike his mentor, he was born with an interest in herbs. He was a med cat from the start. After Yellowfang was thrown out, Runningnose was still young and didn't know what to do. His herb store was dry and unused because the cats that he tried to treat were already dead by the time he reached them. Runningnose died free of Brokenstar's reign.

9 Echosong

She started as an ordinary kitty pet then suddenly became a medicine cat! She had no mentor to teach her and knew almost nothing about herbs but with help from StarClan she became a stunning medicine cat who saved many lives.

Feather frost of skyclan

Her pelt is gorgeous. And she is a great med after not even living in a clan her whole life. It was so sad when she died.

Beautiful name. And gentle plus kind personality. Perfect for a medicine cat!

10 Alderheart

Ravenpaw is old news! Alderheart is the one true stress king! Alderheart is one of the only good medicine cats, along with Jayfeather, Briarlight, Littlecloud, Flametail, Frostpaw, and Echosong. The rest of the medicine cats are either strange, not believing in StarClan, or Mary Sues. But Alderheart is just a wonderful cat! - Moonstar of ThunderClan

Alderheart is just an amazing medicine cat. He cared for all his clanmates and other clan cats. He is a loyal apprentice to Jayfeather.

I love him so muCh! He is my favorite med cat for sure! I mean his nervousness is so CuTE! And he stepped in for so many different med cats showing how great a med he is. And how great his heart is. I don't blame him for Sandstorms death. Not in the slightest. I hate how people do. It isn't fair. So many cats make mistakes in that book so back off poor Alderheart. Anyways he also stayed true by not going with Velvet. Where so many other med cats failed he didn't. So GooOoOOOO ALDERHEART! ❤️

The Contenders
11 Willowshine

Willow shine is perfect for the job, already deciding that she wanted to do it when she was a kit. Helping Mothwing with the StarClan part of her job. And stepping up for her mentor.

I was like finally a cat who actually believes in Starclan! She's perfect for the job it was her destiny she was already helping Mothwing as a kit that's saying something

She stands up for MothWing, her mentor, even when she knows that MothWing does not believe in StarClan. Nice, WillowShine!

12 Brambleberry

She certainly deserves more than this. She helped Crookedstar when he was hurt and pretty much was his mother. She protected him from Rainflower(And she's still a good cat even though she had problems) and found ways for Crookedstar to help. She also took in Mudfur, knowing he was a warrior and not a medicine cat!

SHE WAS AMAZING! When Rainflower was really mean to Crookedkit and renamed him along with disowning him, she was his first supporter. Shellheart and Oakkit followed. She healed him so well and was a mother to him. Brambleberry understood his grief for his mother and guided him through it.

I loved how she was one of the only few people who considered sort of taking care of little crookedkit. brambleberry is really fantasic!

13 Barkface

Read Tallstar's Revenge I really like Barkface; he always supported his friend against his own brother. He didn't blame Tallpaw that much when Brackenwing died, he forgave him quicker than others and always encouraged Tallstar to do what he thought was right. He was also a loyal Windclan medicine cat till the day he died.

No one has nothing to say? Well then I think Barkface was a wonderful medicine cat. He cared about Tallstar when he was dying, he cared about the other clans ( and his clan ), and he cared about Mudfur so much! He may not been as swag as Yellowfang, as funny as Jayfeather, or as smart as Leafpool ( I think I did that wrong lol ) but he is a great medicine cat that should be top 5

Strange name, huh? Barkface was WindClan's medicine cat. When WindClan was brought home, he predicted the clouds as a sign that there would be an unexplained death that day. Later on, as Barkface predicted, Whiteclaw of RiverClan plunged into the gorge after fighting with Graystripe over them crossing the border to return WindClan.

14 Flametail

This playful young tom was a great addition to ShadowClan's medicine supply, full of energy and strong. He had a vast knowledge of herbs and plants, and he was ShadowClan's medicine cat for a short time, as he died playing on the frozen lake, falling through and drowning under the ice. Jayfeather attempted to save him, and almost drowned himself, but Rock pushed him away and made him leave Flametail to die.

Flametail is one of my favorite cats. I was so happy when we got to see from his eyes in Night Whispers! And I was devastated when he died

Flametail is one of the best ShadowClan medicine cats. He had so much potential to be the greatest, but he died at only two years old by the stupid ice.

Flametail will forever be remembered in the hearts of his kin


15 Sagewhisker

Full of love and glory, SageWhisker deserves a higher rating. She helped YellowFang so much!

Sagewhisker was such a kind medicine cat and was a great mentor to Yellowfang!

She was Yellowfang's mentor and a kind, glorious cat. I love her.

16 Mudfur

I love how he started off as a warrior and retired to medicine cat. He was so sad when (I think it was Brightsky) died! He was also an amazing father to Leopardstar.

Nothing on Mudfur either? I honestly feel he's one of the best RiverClan med cats. He began a med cat to stop the violence he made when he was a warrior, and after losing his mate.

I like how he was a caring father ( I think, it's been a while since I read Leopardstars Honor) and I loved how he became a medicine cat. By the way, WHERE'S CLOUD SPOTS!?

17 Featherwhisker

Featherwhisker was great! He always had a liking to Bluestar and Snowfur even though they weren't his kin. He always tried to help and was kind and modest. He did his best to take care of Goosefeather when he went crazy. Go Featherwhisker!

Ok I'm sorry but this guy is very underrated Featherwhisker was actually very cool and skilled he should be considered as one of the best Thunderclan medicine cats in history!

I wish Featherwhisker weren't so underrated. I have loved this character from the moment I met him in Bluestar's prophecy. How could you not love this cat?

18 Puddleshine

Bro, he didn't even want to be a medicine cat. Rowanstar just picked up some random kit and set him in front of Leafpool, like, "Okay Leafpool, teach him and be gone by morning." He wanted to be a warrior, just like other cats such as Alderheart, Jayfeather, Cinderpelt (okay, basically all ThunderClan medicine cats except Leafpool).

He tried, but he was so insecure when it came to older medicine cats like Mothwing. That girl came in like she owned the place.

Although he was still a young cat, he still devoted his life to his clan. He wanted to help his clanmates, that's why he joined the rouges. He never had anyone he could look up to, considering Leafpool is a ThunderClan medicine cat.

He put his clan ahead of his leader Rowanstar even though he wanted to get away from Darktail just as much as him. And he also went behind Darktails back and feed and gave herbs to the RiverClan prisoners

19 Goosefeather

Haunted by the past, the only one that could see the ghosts that lived among the clans, visions of everything that would happen in the future, as well as every prophecy. Sometimes it was a gift, and other times a curse. He carried this burden until death, and never told a soul, just to protect them. Everyone thought he was crazy, and in the end, he did become a little insane, but who can blame him? He also had a vast knowledge of herbs, and was described to be "goofy and different from all the other cats" by Bluekit. He was smart, loyal, wise, kind, and funny! What's not to love?

I think Goosefeather is the best medicine cat is because even though his clanmates don't believe in his omens anymore, he went on and told Bluefur about the prophcy and helped her to save the entire clan! He really is a wise and tolerant medicine cat, I suppose. Perhaps you can move him up a few rates and write something good about him for description. That would really help!

20 Moth Flight

Moth Flight?! How did you get 20th?! Moth Flight is such a resilient, brave, imaginative, colorful character. (She is personally my favorite character) She had the boldness to stand up to her mother, and to follow the green moth that everyone thought was a silly daydream. I feel that I am a LOT like Moth Flight, in the sense that she is constantly dreaming of a better way and how she is often underestimated and not given enough credit. Even in real life, Moth Flight is still not given enough credit, and still underestimated.

-Birdcreek's Opinion :)

She didn't care what others thought, she did the best thing she could have done. Without her, without her existence. Medicine cats would not exist, therefore this list and all these amazing characters on the list... WOULD NOT EXIST.

Moth Flight was WindClan's first medicine cat. Her mother never thought she could amount to something, but she proved her wrong. She also discovered the Moonstone, that leaders could get 9 lives (which saved her mother's life), and why medicine cats couldn't have mates or kits. Her mate was Micah, medicine cat of SkyClan, who died from falling off a tree. I personally love Moth Flight.

21 Pebble Heart

He's the son of Greywing! He and Pebble Heart are my fav characters because when Micah died, Pebble Heart helped Moth Flight get over her grief of in my opinion, Moth Flight might have killed herself in attempt to get back with Micah. Pebble Heart devoted himself so much to Shadow Clan.

He was so great, and pushed through the dreams he got as a kit. Imagine dreaming that everyone you know will fight and a lot of them will die! Poor him. He lost his mother and Gray Wing, and still was a great med cat for ShadowClan.

Pebble Heart is a grey tabby tom. he was ShadowClans first medicine cat and he was very kind. being one of Turtle Tail's kits, he was raised by Grey Wing (my favorite) along with his brother, Owl Eyes, and his sister, Sparrow Fur after Grey Wing realized his love for Turtle Tail and she had run away from their real father. his real father was a cruel kittypet named Tom. tom had once stolen him and his littermates and Turtle Tail had gone after them, getting hit by a monster in the process. Grey Wing went after the kits and Turtle Tail, only to find that she had died. Heartbroken, he kept on the trail of the kits and took them back to the hollow. Cloud Spots trained Pebble Heart to be a medicine cat. every cat decided to move away from the hollow. some cats went to the river to live with River Ripple, some went to live in the forest with Clear Sky, and some went to live with Tall Shadow in the pine forest. Pebble heart and Grey Wing went to the pine forest, and Owl Eyes and Sparrow Fur went to Clear Sky. with Pebble Hearts knowledge of herbs, he became ShadowClans first medicine cat.

22 Kestrelflight
23 Hawkheart Hawkheart is a stone-gray tom with flecks of darker brown fur, yellow eyes, and graying whiskers.

Hawkheart was a WindClan medicine cat under Heatherstar’s leadership in the forest territories. He originally served as a warrior before becoming a medicine cat. He was said to have an unusually strong and rough personality. During an attack on WindClan's camp, Hawkheart violently defended his... read more

My god, if he killed a background character like Patchpelt, would you care? I'm betting you would have either overlooked it or forgotten. Hawkheart has every right to defend his medicine. Yes, Moonflower shouldn't have died like that, but why flame Hawkheart for it. He was a loyal medicine cat that was defending himself. Get it through your heads.

It's not his fault he killed Moonflower(Well, I guess it is...), but she was trying to protect his clan. I mean, if you were a medicine cat and another cat broke into your den and destroyed all the herbs, wouldn't you be mad as well? True, he shouldn't have killed, but still

HE literally killed Moonflower and he is a medicine cat that killed he does not deserve to be on this list.

24 Flipclaw

You did your best, Flipclaw. I know you weren't a medicine cat, but you tried.

25 Cloudberry

Cloudberry was a good ThunderClan medicine cat. She was sweet, and you can read about her is Goosefeather's Curse.

She was the best medicine cats ever. She made goosefeather stay away because she didn't want him to get hurt when she was healing doestar which killed her D:
