Top 10 Best Warrior Cat Clans

The world of these felines is one of danger, excitement, and adventure. From the lush forests to the rocky mountains, the cats of this world are divided into different clans, each with their own distinct traits and beliefs.

In the heart of these clans lies a fierce sense of loyalty and community, with each member bound by a code of honor that governs their every move. But despite their similarities, the clans are not without their differences. Some are known for their cunning and intelligence, while others are revered for their bravery and physical prowess.

Yet, the question remains: which of these clans is the strongest, the most skilled, the most deserving of admiration? Is it the stalwart ThunderClan, with its fierce protectiveness and deep connection to the land? Or perhaps the wily ShadowClan, with their sharp minds and willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed? The noble RiverClan, with their love of water and skilled swimming? Or maybe the mysterious WindClan, with their speed and endurance that can outpace even the swiftest of predators?

Each clan has its own unique qualities that make them stand out, each with a story that is as rich and complex as the cats themselves. And as you delve deeper into the world of Warrior Cats, you'll find yourself drawn into their world, a part of their struggles and victories, and invested in the fate of each clan as they fight for their place in the sun.
The Top Ten
1 RiverClan RiverClan is a clan of cats that reside near a fast-moving river. They are excellent swimmers and fishermen, and their territory is marked by a waterfall and a series of rapids. RiverClan cats are known for their sleek, muscular bodies, which help them navigate the swift currents of the river. Their clan symbol is a fish, and their current leader is Mistystar.

This and Shadowclan deserves to be top! Like ngl but River clan is better than thunder clan in many different ways! There's not as much drama, no ones rlly overrated, no ones rlly bad murderers, ( who's alive in the first book) and they all slay. They can swim and they are just great cats who are good fighters. Lemme just say Thunder clan is overrated and honestly riverclan should be more noticed. Especially Shadowclan bc everyone thinks Shadow clans terrible bc of brokenstar but they actually are so cool. - KitKat ( not a warrior name but just chocolate)

Riverclan is an easygoing clan and cats eating fish is like perfect, though it is unfortunate when the river freezes. They don't have that much drama and they don't have any murderers.

Peaceful, uniquely strong because swimming is a great workout for all your muscles. Large variety of prey because of the different options on water and dry land, clean and silky coats from swimming, smart to reinforce their dens to float during floods. Crookedstar was a very brave leader to turn away from mapleshade when he realized he was being deceived. Not many cats would defy a Dark Forest cat, they would be too scared of the repercussions.

Riverclan you are okay but when you where in Tigerclan you let Blackfoot kill your Deputy Stonefur and you kicked Graystripe!but Mistystar is a hole different story!

2 ThunderClan ThunderClan is one of the four clans in the Warrior Cat book series, written by Erin Hunter. This clan is known for its bravery and loyalty to their code, which is guided by their leader, currently Bramblestar. ThunderClan resides in a dense forest, and their territory is marked by a towering oak tree that stands in the center of their camp. Their clan symbol is a lightning bolt, and their main prey consists of mice, voles, and squirrels.

Hi! This is Skyspirit of ThunderClan! I just have to say, ThunderClan is such an awesome Clan. Yes, I know, it is weird that it seems like StarClan is only for ThunderClan. But, they get cool prophecies! Like "Fire alone will save our Clan" and "There will be three, kin of your kin, who hold the power of the stars in their paws" I really like the Power of Three prophecy. They also have "Four must become two, Lion and Tiger will meet in battle, and blood will rule the forest" plus "The end of the stars draws near, three must become four and battle the darkness that lasts forever" and "Before there is peace, blood will spill blood, and the lake will run red" Okay. I'm not even sure if some of them are from ThunderClan, I just got them off a website because I've only read Into the Wild and Fire and Ice!

Thunderclan is literally the best Clan. I love most of the mates inside ThunderClan, but most of all, I think ThunderClan is the most important Clan in the lake/forest. They basically have all the best characters. Don't know why the other Clans call them 'getting into other cats' businesses. They were trying to help!

EZ best clan. No other one can compete with it. I can see why it is the main one. Like bro it had all the great warriors and leaders

ThunderClan needs to be higher! With all due respect, I love RiverClan. They're cool. But the only reason people like them is because they swim! And are "pretty" I respect that, no hate. But ThunderClan should be FIRST! I just love how kind they are. They always care about the other Clans, and anyone who comes there way. They let in kittypets, and rouges. No other Clan would do that. Maybe an exception of like RiverClan or something, but ThunderClan definitely would. They are always the peaceful ones, trying not to start unnecessary wars (apart from a few exceptions) They are brave, loyal, kind, generous, brave, excepting, and tough. And of course they have all the main characters! ThunderClan rocks

3 ShadowClan ShadowClan is another one of the four clans in the Warrior Cat book series. ShadowClan cats are known for being cunning and fierce, and they live in a marshy area surrounded by dense pine forests. Their territory is marked by a tangled thorn thicket, and their clan symbol is a snake. ShadowClan cats are skilled hunters and often prey on amphibians, birds, and reptiles. The current leader of ShadowClan is Tigerstar.

ShadowClan is said to be evil by the other clans, but they've just had bad leaders. For example, there's Tigerstar. None of the other clans knew what he did. When they did they just thought of ShadowClan as evil.

This clan slays. Everyone hates it bc of Tigerstar and Brokenstar but Shadowclan in general never rlly did anything wrong. The cats followed their leader bc they thought it was for the best and was scared what would happen if they wouldn't. But I feel bad for the cats which deserved better. GO SHADOWCLAN YOU GOT THIS! Thunder clan is good but I prefer Shadowclan and river clan! -KitKat ( Not a warrior name but just chocolate)

ShadowClan is always hated, but they are actually a really cool clan. They have good hunting and fighting skills, plus they are really strong and confident cats. Even though they are dodgy and can betray others easily, that's kind of their personalities. Still, I feel like they are really underrated.

ShadowClan is my favorite Clan because they seem mean, but on the inside they are really nice. They get protective and challenge cats for battle, they became rogues because Sol made them believe StarClan was abandoning them, Darktail separated them, all that stuff, sure. But the other Clans make mistakes as well, so is it fair to hate a clan for the mistakes? If you want to do that, read Dawn of the Clans or something haha.

4 WindClan WindClan is a clan of cats that live on the open moorland. They are known for their speed and agility, and their territory is marked by a towering pile of stones known as Highstones. WindClan cats are skilled hunters of rabbits, hares, and birds, and their clan symbol is a gust of wind. Their current leader is Harestar.

Poor gorsepaw... He didn't deserve to die. Wind clan isn't my favorite but they are still a good clan which carries in going when they were driver out by terrible LEADER of Shadowclan and the other slay cats which follow him bc they have no other choice. I'm including Clawface and Blackfoot as well! Wind clan was always a good clan but I don't know why thunder clan had to bring them home! I mean the cats left in Shadowclan could of done it bc might start was their leader when Fire heart and Greystripe bring them back! -KitKat ( Not a warrior name but just chocolate)

I feel like WindClan is always last. But they are one of my favourite clans. They are unique, and don't try to get the spotlight. They prefer to chill out and have peace, (at least when Tallstar was leader, Onestar certainly has caused some trouble for WindClan) while the other clans always want to see whats happening. I also like a lot of WindClan cats like Crowfeather, Tigerheart, Barkface (even though he is dead now), Deadfoot (also in StarClan), and Ashfoot.

Windclan may be considered more mild and less involved than Shadowclan and Thunderclan, but that's not exactly a bad thing, if you think about it. The thing is, if you're less aggressive, and have more of a degree of empathy and helpfulness, you'll be more respected by other clans. This means that the other clans are less likely to attack them. Think about it. How many times has Thunderclan warred against Windclan? Not much at all. As for Shadowclan, the ratio of attacks on Thunderclan far outweigh the ratio of attacks on Windclan.

As for another reason Windclan is the best, they have good living conditions. The woods may be beautiful, and filled with an abundance of foods and scents, and the river and the willows may be amazing, but it would feel much better to have a cool spring breeze blowing against you peacefully while you sprint than to be treading on pointy pine needles and tripping over sticks.

One last reason Windclan is the best is because they're the most ...more

WindClan, like Hufflepuff, are sweet and fair and never waver to help others in most cases. If they feel insulted or threatened they fight like the cat within (Or like badger in my case) and never fail to find the best way to solve a fight. They have never came up with any evil cats. Ring a bell? For those who have read Harry Potter WindClan has a strong connection to Hufflepuff and is a just, fair, honest, and loyal clan that is unwavering even when faced with near death. They accept help unlike other clans because they understand they sometimes need it. They are truly strong fighters and because of that they can see their weaknesses and strengths and with their kind souls take care of those in need and express more hat anger and growling in a fight. They are a good ally that only ThunderClan can understand most of the time. Another bell. WindClan and Hufflepuff are alike in another way. Strong connection to the clan that is the main place, house, clan, area, etc. I know WindClan is ...more

5 SkyClan SkyClan is a clan of cats that live in the gorge, a deep valley with high cliffs and rocky outcroppings. They are known for their climbing and jumping abilities, and their territory is marked by a tall, ancient tree known as the Sky Oak. SkyClan cats are skilled hunters of birds and rodents, and their clan symbol is a bird in flight. Their current leader is Hawkwing.

Okay, I'm not so far into the series that I know EVERYTHING about SkyClan, but I do know that their amazing climbing abilities make SkyClan one cool group of cats.

They were drivin out bc of Two legs and Twolegplace, their clan parted bc they couldn't find a home and ofc.. Firestar had to do it. Sandstorm amazing but sorry Firestar your couple is cute but she's better srry Firestar fans! Anyway back to the point, Sky clan had a cool name but the coolest name is Shadowclan for sure! -KitKat (not a warrior name but just chocolate)

I took a test and got SkyClan, and I love the way they don't like conflict. I don't like ThunderClan, RiverClan is okay, but that's because of the characters. I mean, SKYCLAN SHOULD DEFINITELY BE FIRST! And their past shows they're tough and should definitely be the best. Shadow is second to me. Their past is so dark, but they have really good characters. However, I hate Brokenstar and Tigerstar. WindClan is good, fast, and loyal, but skinny. ThunderClan is the worst. Why? The whole series is about the characters, which is just wicked. So, that's why I vote for it. Thanks for reading. I really appreciate it.

SkyClan has always been my favourite Clan. I hate ThunderClan because the entire series revolves around them. Also, they don't make sense. They're described as 'the most loyal, brave, strong, and fierce Clan' even though the reason Firestar originally joined them was because they were too weak. Also, the other Clans look down on them because they're apparently weak and soft because they always let cats from the other Clans in, and they're absolutely right. It doesn't make sense how they're portrayed as the Gryffindors of Warrior Cats when they're described as weak by the other Clans. I don't HATE ShadowClan. I just don't like how everyone thinks they're evil (even though the book portrays them to be the bad guys). I don't hate them. I just don't like them. Also, I hate Blackstar. I actually do like RiverClan, but again, I don't like how they're portrayed. It's stupid how everyone thinks they're the soft Clan (even though it's really ThunderClan, sorry). WindClan's okay. I don't mind ...more

6 StarClan StarClan is not a clan in the traditional sense, but rather a group of deceased cats who reside in the stars above the clans. They are revered by the living cats and are believed to guide and protect them. StarClan cats are represented by the stars in the sky, and they communicate with the living cats through dreams and visions.

StarClan is a cool group of cats. For one thing cats from all clans find peace TOGETHER. StarClan is also really cool for its wisdom and guidance to the other clans.

The best, most powerful clan. I don't know why people say that they are lazy, because theres probably something like a star code that they have to follow, saying that you may not tell the future you may only give prophecies and stuff- Stripedpelt

Shouldn't they be top just saying cause like they give cats prophecies, helped cats in the dark forest battle! Also I feel bad for the cats that fade eventually :(
-Ginger'flame Skyclan

I HATE them! They are actually pretty lazy. Since they get into cats dreams all the time, can't they just stop being lazy and instead of prophecy's can't they just tell cats what's happening or what's going to happen? Couldn't they just say Darktail is on the loose and there is a fifth clan? The clans could had just sent a patrol or something to bring back Skyclan. And kill Darktail and his weak rogues? MANY Shadowclan cats got killed because of it. Including Dawnpelt, she was awesome! But no... just "Embrace what yo find in the shadows, for only they can clear the sky." Bru.

7 BloodClan BloodClan is a group of rogue cats that live in the Twolegplace, a human residential area. They are known for their brutal tactics and loyalty to their leader, Scourge. BloodClan cats are often large and muscular, and they have sharp claws and teeth. Their clan symbol is a drop of blood, and their territory is marked by the rusty, abandoned vehicles and buildings of the Twolegplace.

I love blood clan. Stupid firejerk seriously he killed our leader scourge. Blood is everything we are blood clan. We will get our revenge on all four clans we will kill them all.

Blood clan is the best. Firejerk is stupid seriously he killed are leader scourge. We live for blood we will get our revenge on all the clans four clans

Well... I really felt bad about the way Scourge was treated back then when he was a kittypet (Tiny). Socks and Ruby are the main cats that treated Tiny like dirt, and they are also basically the ones that made Tiny become Scourge. There is another reason how he became Scourge, and it was because of what Ruby had said to Tiny, "unwanted kittens get thrown in the river." You see, Tiny then ran away from his home and into the forest where the forest cats are. And that's when he met Tigerstar. Yep, Tigerstar is the one who ripped the bell off Tiny's collar. In the end, I really felt like Tigerstar deserved to die. SORRY FOR A FEW SPOILERS, PEOPLE.

I love Scourge and this is his clan! If you exactly call it a clan since it doesn't run like one but awesome!

8 LionClan LionClan is a hypothetical clan that does not appear in the books but is often mentioned by fans. It is believed that LionClan would live in a savannah or grassland and would be skilled hunters of large prey such as antelope and gazelle. Their clan symbol is a lion, and they would be known for their bravery and strength. The current leader of LionClan is unknown.
9 WarriorClan WarriorClan is not a clan that appears in the books but is a hypothetical clan made up of warriors from all four clans. It represents the unity and strength that the cats can achieve when they work together towards a common goal.

WarriorClan is soo cute! Monkeystar's name is just soo cute as well! They are the best clan everyone vote WarriorClan!

I like the way they are kinda like daylight warriors.

This clan is new to me

10 TigerClan TigerClan is a group of cats that was formed by Tigerstar, the former leader of ShadowClan. TigerClan was comprised of cats from all four clans and was formed with the intention of taking over all the territories. TigerClan was known for its brutal tactics and was eventually defeated by the combined forces of the other four clans.

I swear Tigerclan is the best clan. It 100% should've stayed, and honestly, I don't think Tigerstar nor Leopardstar should've died.

Wait back it up, I never got to the part in the book where leopard'star died so how did she die?

The Contenders
11 LeopardClan LeopardClan is a hypothetical clan that does not appear in the books but is often mentioned by fans. It is believed that LeopardClan would live in a dense jungle and would be skilled hunters of large prey such as deer and boars. Their clan symbol is a leopard, and they would be known for their speed, agility, and stealth. The current leader of LeopardClan is unknown.

LeopardClan is a really cool name and I really appreciate having such an awesome clan.

I prefer leopards to lions and tigers, they are so swift and cute.

12 Rogues Rogues are cats that do not belong to any of the four clans. They live on their own or in small groups, and they do not follow the warrior code. Rogues are often viewed with suspicion by the clan cats, as they are seen as unpredictable and potentially dangerous. Some rogues may form their own groups or alliances, but they are not considered to be clans in the same sense as ThunderClan, ShadowClan, RiverClan, or WindClan.

I think rogues should be given more respect. Sometimes, rogues mean no harm, and yet they are feared and hated by the clans! - Heathergaze >:3

I LOVE rouges because they are outside the clans. I don't know why, but I like half clan cats and loners/kittypets more than cats with pure clan blood.

Rogues are so sad, considering that they can only be a rogue if they were exiled or had no choice but to leave their clan. They deserved better!

13 Place of No Stars (Dark Forest) Place of No Stars, also known as the Dark Forest, is the opposite of StarClan. It is a place where the spirits of evil and deceased cats reside. These cats are known for their treacherous ways and their desire to harm the living cats. The Dark Forest is a shadowy, misty place that is difficult to navigate, and it is marked by twisted trees and murky swamps.

The Dark Forest sounds really mysterious and evil. Though, it doesn't have peace or wisdom the Dark Forest deserves some respect. After all, how much damage could Tigerstar do if he joined StarClan when he dies instead of the Dark Forest.

If say I'll be here bc of Mapleshade lol. She slays and the dark forest is hated for many reasons but who cares about reasons? IT SLAYS! -KitKat (not a warrior name but just chocolate)

The Place Of No Stars is the best! All the dead evil cats go there and plan evil stuff. When Brambleclaw was there, the way the authors described it sounded really cool.

The Dark Forest is soo COOL! It is were all the dead evil cats go to plot revenge on the living! The Great Battle was also amazing!
