Top 10 Best Warrior Cat Couples

Have you ever seen two cats so perfect for each other? It's up to you to decide who are good together and who should go their separate ways!

**Warning: Contains spoilers!**
The Top Ten
1 Cloudtail & Brightheart

Beautiful! I really like Brightheart because she reminds me of myself. I was mauled by a dog when I was younger, and the fact that she persevered through it really helped me when I went through stuff (I was reading that book when it happened).

I like that Cloudtail stuck with her and defended her after what happened. I strongly disagree with his behavior towards Daisy though. He shouldn't have treated her like she was his mate. -Blazewing

Aww, it's so adorable. Cloudtail really stood up for Brightheart and didn't want her to be "Lostface." Lostface became Brightheart thanks to Firestar and Cloudtail! Whitewing, Ambermoon, Dewnose, and Snowbush are their kits.

2 Graystripe & Silverstream

This is my favorite relationship in these books. This was true love. Silverstream is my favorite character. I liked how much they worried about each other.

I loved when Silverstream saved Graystripe at the river. I was so sad when Silverstream died. Graystripe and Silverstream didn't deserve that.

I like their kits, Stormfur and Feathertail. I hated when Graystripe loved Millie. I hate Millie. I think Graystripe only loves her because she is so similar to Silverstream. Millie didn't show love for her kits. I hope when Graystripe goes to StarClan, he will choose Silverstream instead of Millie.

3 Firestar & Sandstorm

They two were absolutely meant to be. It angers me so much when I see Spottedleaf openly flirting with the cat she KNOWS is already in a healthy relationship with someone else. But anyhow, Sandstorm and Firestar are amazing together and I love the cats they are when they’re around each other.

Firestar and Sandstorm are just plain adorable. Even though Sandstorm, as an apprentice, teased Firestar, she apologized. Then Sandstorm became mates with him and had Squirrelflight and Leafpool.

I think that this is a great ship because Sandstorm deserves Firestar and Spottedleaf doesn't. Sandstorm helps the clan and Spottedleaf just sits there being like, "I want to be Firestar's mate! I deserve him!" the whole book. Sandstorm and Firestar are so cute together. I think they deserve each other, and they are the parents of my favorite character, Squirrelflight.

Sandstorm is also one of my favorite characters, as is Firestar. Therefore, they are the best ship in the entire world. They also make very good parents. Squirrelflight is a good hunter, like her mother, and Leafpool has courage, like her father.

Both of them helped the clan in a major way. For example, Squirrelflight traveled to the sun-down-place. Firestar and Sandstorm would do the same if their clan was in trouble. They also run from a dog, which Firestar did in his life. Sandstorm has done her fair share of border patrols. Firestar and Sandstorm are the best ship ever. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

4 Leafpool & Crowfeather

Despite being an extremely forbidden couple, that doesn't affect how they like each other! Crowfeather and Leafpool hung out with each other in Twilight from the New Prophecy.

They had the amazing three: Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jayfeather.

I really love these two. They’ve been through so much, apart AND together, but yet they still love each other. Even with so much else happening in their lives. They love each other for who they are, and that makes a good couple.

Crowfeather and Leafpool, I already have my work cut out for me on this one. Leafpool is driven insane and then briefly runs away from the Clans. To be fair, Feathertail and Crowfeather were a better ship, but I guess I can just like them because they have Jayfeather!

Leafpool was not responsible when she ran off with Crowfeather or when she gave birth and didn't even care for them (and yes, I know, medicine cats can't have kits, but really)? Leafpool was selfish because she ran off with Crowfeather and kept running off with him in the middle of the night. She didn't really care for her Clanmates after the battle with the badgers.

She was also rude to Jayfeather in training just because she thought mothers were supposed to be mean to their kits. They can be strict with them, but not "mean". I think that Crowtail is a better ship. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

5 Bluestar & Oakheart

These two are amazing. They both leave each other very much. Even when times were tough, they still were together. Until the end of time, they will love each other.

You see, this couple is amazing. Why? Well, for one, they didn't go up to each other and say, "Hey! Let's be mates!" like Crowfeather and Leafpool did. Back in the days when Bluestar was around, you actually had crushes. You didn't go to the mojo immediately.

It's a well-developing couple, and will always last throughout the blazing stars in the sky. They trusted each other, loved each other, and thought of each other on their last breath in the real world. This will always be my favorite warrior cats couple, and I'm proud to say that.

6 Jayfeather & Half Moon

I think that Half Moon and Jayfeather belong together because he loved her. I feel bad for him when he broke his stick, meaning he could never see her again. I think they deserve each other.

I saw a comment about Cloudtail and Brightheart. It said that they didn't make a good pair because half of Brightheart's face was missing due to a dog attack. Just because Jayfeather is blind or someone is missing something or can't use it doesn't mean they're not a good match, just like Jayfeather's blindness doesn't mean he can't love someone else. I think that these two were good together. They're one of my favorite pairs.

And it's also sad when Jayfeather didn't want to go into the mountains with her. I love Jaymoon. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

7 Brambleclaw & Squirrelflight

This ship is my third favorite because they loved each other. Even though Squirrelflight lied to him, he still appointed her as deputy because, according to the Updated and Expanded Ultimate Guide, she was the only cat he could fully trust. He tried to rebuild their friendship, and in the end, it worked out! They had two wonderful kits: Sparkpelt and Alderheart, who are kind, caring, and loyal. I love this ship so much, and it all worked out in the end.

- Mossfall of ThunderClan

I absolutely love this ship. Bramblestar is a great cat, and if they wanted to break up, then they would have broken up already.

Is there really any ship better than this for Squirrelflight? Some people say that Ash x Squirrel is better, but it's not. He wanted to burn her 'children' alive! And then he died, not like he was important or anything.

The only thing that held it back in the Power of Three (PoT) was Leafpool's fault, not Squirrelflight's. So basically, it has almost nothing to do with their relationship. But it's still a good ship. - Stonepaw

8 Brackenfur & Sorreltail

They spend a lot of time together. And they also grew old with each other by their sides. They were always very kind and patient to each other. They were never mean to each other because they loved the other cat too much. Sorreltail is said to can’t live without Brackenfur. And Brackenfur remarks every day how much he loves Sorreltail. Even when she was dead. True love! ❤️

Really sweet! Also, if you think they have an age gap, they haven't! Brackenfur was apprenticed early, and also made a warrior early, so normally he would just be an apprentice when she was a kit.

9 Hollyleaf & Fallen Leaves

Hollyleaf did love Fallen Leaves. She and Fallen Leaves were in a tunnel, stuck there. She managed to get out, but she had to say goodbye to Fallen Leaves.

I have to say... People, don't kill me for saying this, but they need to be ranked higher. They are just the cutest together! This ship is like the best one in the books.

I love that Fallen Leaves told Hollyleaf when she got lost in the tunnels that he said he would never leave her again. So cute!

I really loved this ship when I read Hollyleaf's story. I loved the awkwardness, and when they raced in the tunnels, Hollyleaf got lost and couldn't find him. And when she did, Fallen Leaves nuzzled her and told her he would never leave her again. It's so adorable.

10 Lionblaze & Cinderheart

I love these cats. I like that Lionblaze broke up with Heathertail. I prefer Lionblaze with Cinderheart. Cinderheart was a beautiful she-cat, and I like that she became a warrior with Lionblaze as her mate.

I'm a big fan of the CinderXLion pairing. I wish Cinderheart could see that she is more than worthy of Lionblaze, even though he is one of the three. Their different statuses shouldn't prevent them from being together. Lionblaze truly loves her, but she keeps distancing herself because she believes she's obstructing his destiny. I suspect that the Cinderpelt aspect of Cinderheart is influencing her decision against having Lionblaze as a mate. Lionblaze should heed Leafpool's advice: "Listen to your heart, because that's where your destiny lies."

The Contenders
11 Dustpelt & Ferncloud

This is a great couple. I'll start with Dustpelt. He is a brown tabby tom, and he had a crush on Sandpaw. I'm glad he found a different love because I like Sandstorm and Firestar together.

Dustpelt must have gone through much pain losing Ferncloud. Ferncloud is a beautiful gray tabby and has some speckles. She has many kits with Dustpelt, and they just look perfect together even if you haven't even heard about them.

Ferncloud has lots of kits and a true love, but her brother Ashfur went raging after Squirrelflight mated with Mr. Bramble and almost killed three cats. They are different, which is kinda funny.

12 Stormfur & Brook

Stormfur and Brook, where small fish swim, are one of the best half-Clan relationships besides Crowfeather and Feathertail. Stormfur was very loyal to Brook. She had Lark That Sings at Dawn and one other kit.

Stormfur went on the quest to find Midnight. On the way back from the sun-drown-place, the six cats crossed over the mountains because the Twolegplace was too far and too hard. Then Stormfur meets Brook and they fall in love. Then he leaves for a long while, comes back, and stays with the tribe.

Then rogue cats attack the tribe, and Stoneteller becomes a jerk to Stormfur, saying that he lost the battle and sends Stormfur away. But Brook comes with him, and they join ThunderClan together. Later, Stoneteller welcomes them back if they help him defeat the rogues.

They win the battle, and Stormfur and Brook probably have some cute little kits chasing pebbles and moss balls around their paws. This is a good ship with a tragic plotline. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

13 Crowfeather & Feathertail

Ok, so honestly, CrowxFeather was a fairly healthy relationship. They spent time getting to know each other, their feelings sprouted beautifully, and they had to go through hard things together during the journey. Their relationship grew and was stronger because of that.

It was a really cute couple, and I wish we could have seen them have kits! LeafxCrow was rushed. There were no big surprises, and the love felt fake and hurried, as if it was an excuse to bring in the Three. By the way, they should have just been born to Bramble and Squirrel. That would have saved their whole ship. CROWxFEATHER!!

14 Briarlight & Jayfeather

It would have been so cute if they had gotten together. It's a shame they wouldn't be able to have kits. No offense to Jayfeather, but I don't think he's cut out to be a father, let alone a good one.

There is a bit of an age gap, but it's nothing like Thornclaw and Blossomfall.

I feel like it should have been those two. I also really like Half Moon and Jayfeather. I sort of wish everyone else knew more about those two, though.

So, I am going to be honest. Jayfeather is one of my favorite characters, so I feel like if he gets a ship, he would be so much happier. I want that so much. I have selected every Jayfeather ship on here, even if that's a bit messed up.

Anyways, I never thought of this ship, but now that I see it, it makes total sense. He is super nice to her and brings her back from the brink of death! It would have been cool if she got a better death though. Maybe she could have been going through the woods for some reason and hears Jayfeather being attacked, so she jumps on the attacker (Breezepelt maybe?), and then is badly wounded, but they drive him off. Then they confess their feelings for each other, and she dies. Big scene.

15 Jayfeather & Stick

Haha, it's funny but true! Jayfeather is totally obsessed by his stick, and the stick keeps getting back to him, which is a cute thing. Sorry, but imagine Jayfeather with Half Moon! Half Moon only waited like one hundred years.

Sticks are the coolest! Jayfeather, you should totally date her! You guys are so romantic! The fineness of Jayfeather, with his handsome grey fur, and the beautifulness of the she-stick, with a fine brown pelt and a sharp pointy end. Even the Dark Forest would gush at this ship, this wonderful romance, and love so strong, nothing can break it apart! Jayfeather and Stickella, I now pronounce you mates. Have wonderful half-cat and half-stick kits together, and may your love life be the best!

16 Tallstar & Jake

Regardless of what anyone says, it was very clear these two were romantically involved. It is also listed on the Warrior Cats Wiki that their romance was never officially stated, but they were listed in the mates category, which was funny.

Jokes aside, these two were another good relationship and one of the rare good ones from the beginning of the series. It was nice seeing that Jake was the only cat able to get through to Tallstar when he was blinded with rage. Another cute detail is that Tallstar never took a mate, as Kate Cary said, "his heart always belonged to his Jake." Which is just cute in general.

These cats are both gay and have good chemistry, which are two of my favorite things in relationships. - Songshadow

17 Graystripe & Millie

Okay, so Silverstream and Graystripe were a nice couple, but Silverstream is dead now, and Millie truly loves Graystripe. It was love at first sight for her, and she was always trying to cheer him up when he missed ThunderClan. She gave up everything for him. When he asked to be her mate, she was so happy she cried.

But a lot of people still seem to think Graystripe should choose Silverstream. I guess it was kind of bad when she ignored Blossomfall and Bumblestripe, but she thought she was doing the right thing. Maybe she's not such a good mother, but she is the perfect cat for Graystripe!

18 Berrynose & Honeyfern

They were so cute together. Berrynose is one of my favorite characters. Honeyfern really brought out the best in him. We got to see his sweet side.

She would have been a really good mate for Berrynose, and Berrynose would have been a great mate for her. I wish that snake hadn't bitten her. It was so sad, especially because it happened shortly after they had a sweet moment together.

As said in the books, I think Honeyfern's gentleness would have at least balanced out Berrynose's temper. I dislike Berrynose on his own and find it annoying how he moved on from Honeyfern so quickly.

19 Dovewing & Tigerheart

A favorite ship. They turn weird after having kits, but before that, and especially in Night Whispers, they are a really sneaky and cute ship.

Let's face it, I just don't like ships. But I don't mind these guys as much as I don't like most of the rest. If you haven't read Tigerheart's Shadow, I strongly recommend it. That book is what made me not mind this ship, and how much I like Dovewing. I have a country song for this ship, Love You Too Late by Cole Swindell. You'll understand when you hear it. This song is also shared by Firestar, about when Graystripe left for RiverClan.
Skyfrost.

20 Bristlefrost & Rootspring

Very cute ship. (Spoiler for 7th arc). Rootspring was going to join ThunderClan for Bristlefrost, and then she died. Poor Rootspring was heartbroken and wished the world for Bristlefrost ever since she saved him from drowning in the lake.

(Spoilers for TBC)

These two were one of the very few on-screen forbidden romances that didn't suck. They actually had development throughout the entirety of the arc, and the end of A Light in the Mist just shows us that Warrior Cats is willing to write romances that end in tragedy. It was a gut-wrenching part of the series and is what makes The Broken Code my favorite arc.

People often overlook developed relationships in favor of those that were popular earlier in the series. I see so many people trashing The Broken Code and A Starless Clan because they're new and are written differently. It's not fair that they judge these arcs just because they are different from the previous ones.

Overall, Bristlefrost and Rootspring are two of my favorite cats in the series, and I hope we get to see more of Rootspring and how he's still dealing with Bristlefrost's demise. -Songshadow

21 Grey Wing & Storm

I really wish they could've been mates! I mean, I actually stopped reading for a while when Clear Sky became her mate, because it was so sad for Gray Wing!!!

I hate Clear Sky, and I hope Gray Wing and Storm are together in StarClan!

I feel sorry for Grey Wing. He loved Bright Stream, but she loved Clear Sky. He loved Storm, but she loved Clear Sky. It's obvious that he loved Storm, and I wish she could have loved him back.

They had so much to teach each other. Clear Sky also stole Star Flower from his son, which is sad, but Thunder and Violet Dawn still make a cute couple. Things really could have been different for both.

22 Ravenpaw & Barely

I think it was so sad, and I almost cried when Ravenpaw died. I think they could be a solid ship because in the Ultimate Guide, it says Barley was the closest friend Ravenpaw would know.

If they got a little closer, it could've worked, but Ravenpaw's time came. This is a truly adorable and amazing ship. 9/10, amazing and so heartfelt. - Dawnwhisper of SkyClan.

Ravenpaw has always been one of my favorite characters. Seeing him in a relationship that makes him happy makes me happy! I think I cried at the end of Ravenpaw's Farewell. Finding out Erin Hunter confirmed their romantic relationship made that story even more emotional.

23 Ivypool & Hawkfrost

I actually like this because of the complication of their relationship. Ivypool clearly looked up to Hawkfrost before she knew he was evil, and later on, I think Hawkfrost grew fond of her, and his fondness for Ivypool blinded him to her deception. I think Hawkfrost might have fallen for her without realizing it.

When she betrayed him, he covered his hurt the only way he knew - rage and killing. Ivypool was also hurt somewhere deep inside that the cat she had looked up to when she was younger killed one of her best friends, but she thinks she hates him. So I think it would be interesting if they met again, with Hawkfrost asking her why, WHY she betrayed him.

I think here Ivypool might feel a sliver of guilt. And I think it would be amazing if StarClan gave him a second chance, sent him back to the clans, and Hawkfrost joined ThunderClan to be with Ivypool.

24 Crookedstar & Willowbreeze

This was a beautiful relationship. Their love was cute, and I feel bad when Crookedstar lost her and two of his three kits. I love Silverstream (his third kit). A beautiful relationship.

How is this not ranked higher? This is one of the best couples in the book! You can almost feel Crookedstar's agony through the pages after Willowbreeze dies.

This was easily the best couple in any Warriors book. They clearly cared about each other so much, and she was one of the few who saw Crookedstar for who he was, and not his injury. Her death was so sad.

And his reaction exemplifies how much they cared for each other. I actually cried myself to sleep the night I finished this book. That death was so sad. Crookedstar really never had anyone he loved that much ever again. They were clearly meant for each other, but unfortunately, fate had other ideas.

25 Longtail & Mousefur

They were so cute, but there's kind of an age gap. Only a little but big at the same time. I'm pretty sure that Mousefur was a newish warrior when Longtail became an apprentice.

Actually, that's okay! This ship is perfectly amazing! Mousetail forever!

Even though they weren't mates, they were a really good couple. Longtail really cared for Mousefur, and after he died, Mousefur was devastated.

My brother and I used to read these books together, and this was our favorite ship ever! At first, I didn't want anyone to know that I shipped this because I was afraid they would think I was weird. I had been bullied before because I am not much of a reader and had only read the Magic Treehouse books, and people bullied me for it, calling me a baby.

Nobody is too old to read these books, even if they are not in elementary school anymore, like I am. But people still made fun of me. Then my little brother came home with Into the Wild, and he told me how good it was so far. I borrowed it from him after he was done because he had gotten it at a book fair, and I was hooked!

Soon, I saw these two sweethearts, and I just fell in love with the ship! My brother had not noticed the chemistry between these two, but he is not as smart as me, so he didn't pick up on it. Since he didn't see it in the first place, he pretends not to acknowledge my genius. But I know he knows how smart I am. I can see it in his eyes. He knows. He is mad that I found it before him and keeps telling me it isn't a real ship, and that makes me angry, but I let it slide because soon this ship will dominate the whole fandom!
