Top 10 Most Intelligent Warrior Cats

So who would you say is the most intelligent Warrior Cats character? Now what you call "Intelligent" is really up to you, it could be; They being able to pick up one other feelings, them being very resourceful or coming up with cunning plans etc.
The Top Ten
1 Tigerstar Tigerstar is a villain in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. Son of Leopardfoot and Pinestar, former mate of Goldenflower and Sasha, and father of Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, Hawkfrost, and Tadpole. This brown tabby cat almost causes the downfall of the clans. But is killed, firstly by Scourge, who strips all his lives away. And then by Firestar, who moves on to StarClan when they meet again during the Great Battle II. Tigerstar is a large, scarred, dark tabby tom with black stripes, bright amber eyes, a scar over his nose, and a nick in his ear. He has long claws, a broad head, massive shoulders, and a long tail.

I mean sure, he's soooo evil but still he's so smart but the thing is he isn't smart enough to not let Scourge kill him so why is he first?

Though I admit that I don't really like Tigerstar as a character, I can't ignore that he is very intelligent. He was able to keep Redtail's murder and his meetings with the rogues a secret for quite a long time. It was only when he grew impatient and tried to kill Bluestar that he was finally exposed.

After he swooped in and took leadership of suffering ShadowClan, he came up with cunning plan after cunning plan, trying to take revenge. For example, leading the dogs to ThunderClan camp with a rabbit trail. Even in death, he was still able to manipulate other cats into doing what he wanted.

He managed to do all those smart things, because he was extremely ambitious and he almost did become the leader of ThunderClan.

...He is technically smart. He literally tricked the cats that was going to The Place of No Stars for training in Omen of the Stars.

2 Mapleshade Mapleshade is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. Mapleshade is a large, tortoiseshell-and-white she-cat, with a scarred white muzzle, and white patches throughout her pelt. She is thick-furred, and her pelt is ragged, patched, and scarred. Her fur is thick around her neck, like a mane, and she has a broad muzzle and face. She has amber eyes. she is mistakenly described as ginger-and-white.

How is Tigerstar so intelligent? Mapleshade is smarter. He's so mousebrained! He didn't even know that Scourge was the one who he fought when he was a apprentince. He was really dumb to not know Firestar was already on his trail! He should also scent someone watching like Ravenpaw! Mapleshade in my opinion is much smarter and cunning. Like, what has Mapleshade ever done wrong? She is the only villain that has ever completed her task, gaining vengeance on Ravenwing, Frecklewish, and Appledusk. And none of them knew she was coming!

Mapleshade should dereserve a better, she deserved StarClan. All the crimes she had done was for a good reason. So yes, Mapleshade should be in StarClan.

Maple shade is like totally the best cat ever she is one of my favorite cats and she totally deserves a happy life so shame on you starclan for not taking her in!

She doesn't deserve to be in the DF. Ashfur did more than her, she tried to kill three cats and betrayed her clan, yes, but Ashfur tried to kill FOUR cats and helped plot with Hawkfrost. but she took advantage of Crookedpaw. Smart. Very intelligent, plus, Tigerstar was dumb. He got chances to kill Ravenpaw many times, like 'training' but he didn't! He also could have just killed Bluestar while deputy and went to talk to her on a cliff 'about stress of being deputy' or something and pushed her off! (I am thinking of some smart ways to kill warrior cats rn...)

3 Sol

He made shadowclan leave starclan with nothing but wits and words! That's smart!

I mean- he manipulated Shadowclan and all that stuff using only his wits and brain! How is that NOT smart?!

He nearly destroyed all the clans by manipulating them.

He bent Shadowclan to their knees with words!

4 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 one side. In fanart Jayfeather is depicted sometimes with his "beloved" stick that he uses to go back in time to become jay's wing.

This character is intelligent enough to remember his surroundings and even knows how to dodge any trees etc. Jayfeather has managed to survive the dark forest attack while being blind and an attack from his half brother. He was intelligent enough to know what to do with the fate of the tribe and found them a new leader in the 4th series. I'm not quite sure how Tigerstar is no 1 because he was not to intelligent when he brought Scourge into the forest and got himself killed...anyway I think Jayfeather deserves to be the most intelligent

Jayfeather has shown himself to be quite smart as he always thinking about things and able to pick up on things that other cats don't even notice. He also very good at reading other Cats and not just though his powers but just though their scent as well.

His most intelligent moment was when he was able to create a Fake-omen which was able to trick Blackstar into kicking out Sol of the clan. Which shows he also resourceful.

He is probably the best med cat in the clans. He made Blackstar believe in StarClan again and he loves his stick. (Spoiler alert) He breaks his stick when he gets angry and regrets it
(RIP stick)

I just love this cat, always think about things no one knows.

5 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 place to die. I only regret that I will miss watching you become what Starclan has destined you to be."

Terrible stupid dumb grumpy lazy old cat. Nobody likes her. Useless fleabag who can't even train an apprentice without making her hate herself. Vile, disgusting cat. Deserved to die as painfully as possible, and very selfish. Die Yellowfang!
- Braveheart

Yellowfang was smart in many ways, one she saw brokentails (stars) plot an evilness. 2 she picked medicine duties over love. 3 she hated Foxheart now that is smart

I read Yellowfangs secret but I think she is dumb not listining to molepelt.

6 Scourge Scourge is a villain the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of BloodClan. He was bullied by his siblings, Socks and Ruby, in the past because he was the smallest out of his kin. One of his most notable features is his collar of dog teeth. Scourge is a small black tom with one white paw, ice-blue eyes, glossy fur, and a torn left ear. He has a purple collar studded with teeth from dogs and cats, and claws reinforced with dogs' teeth.

He is very good at manipulating other cats. SPOILER ALERT! When he ran away from his house he had nobody to teach him, and he became so fierce and reckless. But reckless can sometimes make a cat not that smart, because they rely on strength and power rather than their mind. But this isn't the case for Scourge. Before he fights he gives himself an idea of what he is going to do to throw them off and win. He also has the ability to make quick decisions. Because he is so small, instead of moaping in the corner of a yard, he uses it to his advantage. This is shown when he battles Tigerstar. Tigerstar is feirce, large, aggressive. Tigerstar makes a move that would have killed Scourge, but being small and nimble, he outmaneuvers him and gets his claw snagged near Tigerclaw's mouth, ripping open his underside. If you have been screaming, "TGRSTR DSRVD TOOO DYE" then that's who did it.

Erin Hunter even describes him as calculating. and I gotta say, creating a clan, knowing how to survive in the city with no good food or water, being able to know how to kill a leader nine times is pretty impressive.

He is a very interesting character. His technique for reinforcing his claws with teeth and other claws to not only scare others but to scratch harder too, is definitely smart.

Scourge was pretty cold and calculating, able to control others easily through fear.

7 Ivypool Ivypool is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the Book series named Warrior Cats. Ivypool is a common silver-and-white tabby. She spied in the Dark Forest and has dark blue eyes. She is the sister of Dovewing and the kit of Whitewing and Birchfall. Her mate is Fernsong, and she is the mother of Flipclaw, Bristlefrost, and Thriftear.

Ivypool is pretty much the one who saved all the clans. She knew most the battle moves they used in the dark forest, hid a lot in bushes etc to find their battle plans and tried to save appledusk (I think that was his name) but later had to kill him to prove herself to save all the clans...I kind off feel sorry for her in a way because she was forced to do several things she didn't want to

She was smart. I don't get why jayfeather is number 1. He's not smart. He was given a gift by StarClan. If he wasn't given that he wouldn't be smart. Just wanted to get my opinion out on jayfeather without voting for him. Ivypool is way smarter. She didn't have any power helping her. She made herself trusted by the dark forest! She spied for the clans without being caught. She knew what was going on. Nobody else knew as much as she did.

Definitely the smartest cat ever. She could hunt fight great for 1. She was able to persuade the dark forest to make her a warrior and convince them she was loyal. She knew exactly what the dark forest was planning and gave enough information for them to believe she was loyal. She didn't give to much away either and give them an advantage. And by the end she stayed loyal to the clans, (SPOILER) picked a great mate. Fernsong is so cute. And they had great kits

Was able to trick all of the Dark Forest cat into thinking she was loyal, including very cunning/smart cats like Mapleshade, Hawkfrost, Brokenstar etc.

8 Darktail

Darktail, the evil villain. I absolutely hate him down to the bottom of my soul. But he's a villain, so that's good. And he shocked me with how smart he was, holding cats prisoner, drowning cats, manipulating Hawkwing (cough cough Hawkwing is an idiot cough), getting ShadowClan to follow him (cough cough it wasn't Rowanstar's fault cough), murdering all the awesome characters... Did I mention how much I HATE Darktail? But yeah, he was basically a cat genius.

Darktail is smart. He found his father, Onestar. By what, SkyClan..I think.

He took shadow clan! He's smart

9 Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet named Rusty. Firestar is killed by fatal wounds by the spirit of Tigerstar and a falling tree
Firestar's personality seems to be very courageous and dedicated, he always dose things that he thinks are right, even if it went against the warrior code. Even if Firestar's ideas don't always work, his strength, courage, kindness, and loyalty leads him to be a strong built leader and point of view. Firestar's last words were “I will not die until the forest is safe from you" more.

Dappleflight and Rainfrost are wrong. Imagine you were a cat. You probobaly wouldn't be in this prophecy without Firestar because he savedyour asses 5 times. Take that.

Soo smart because well saving all clans and managed to make peace almost everywhere.

Firestar is smart because of the things he did and I dis agree with Rainfrost. Firstar died multiple time but all his Strat are very very smart the dog part

He's extremely intelligent!

10 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

She kind of thinks of everything, and it backfires, (listens to the wrong advice...) plus she is really good at reading other characters!

The way she set it up so her beautiful kits would have a good life shows how smart and unselfish she is.

She's for sure one of the top five most intelligent cats.

I like her but she lied to her children I don't like that!

The Contenders
11 Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She was one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She broke the code by being mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and having her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, and Mosskit. Stonefur and Mistyfoot live in RiverClan, while Mosskit died of hypothermia. She has a sister named Snowfur, a mother named Moonflower, and a father named Stormtail. Bluestar is a large, lean, blue-gray she-cat with thick, dense, long fur, a broad face, a broad head, silver hair tinged around her muzzle and tail, a torn ear, broad shoulders, a scar that parts the fur across her shoulders, a long, sleek tail, and piercing, round, wide, clear, brilliant, blue eyes.

Bluestar is the wisest cat in all of warriors! How do think she kept Mistystar, Stonefur, and Mosskit a secret? Sure she has her pros and her cons but think about Squirrelflight! Why is Squirrelflight on this list? She did nothing! Bluestar did something! And so will you! THIS IS NOT AN AD! Except for supporting Bluestar! Go ahead and vote today!

Bluestar should be #1! #3 at least. She get her kits out of the nursery without getting caught! Playing a game(for life)called Secret Escape.
Rules:You can't be seen/heard/scented.
Mosskit worried that she and her siblings were too young to play the game.

Bluestar should be #1! She is just such a wise cat.

12 Alderpaw

Actually that was his first try. And not every character could be good at hunting. Plus he's just a nervous character

He's very clever in figuring out the reason for other cat's feelings,Such explained in the Barnes and Noble Bonus scene.

13 Squirrelflight Squirrelflight is a dark ginger she-cat with forest-green eyes. She has one white paw, short legs, a torn ear tip, glossy fur, and a long, squirrel-like, bushy tail. She has a scar running from her chest to the top of her hind leg along her right flank. She is a cat in the series called Warrior Cats. Her father is Firestar, her mother is Sandstorm, and her sister is Leafpool.

Squirrelflight is the smartest! Without her, the clans would die. Squirrelflight is the smartest of them all! She should at least be in the top 5! Squirrelflight will be the smartest no matter who you vote for or what you say! Vote for Squirrelflight! She knew that Hawkfrost esas evil and she saved Brambleclaw's life! She was smart enough to take in Leafpool's kits. She also chose Brambleclaw over Ashfur which was a better decision. Squirrelflight over all, is the smartest warrior cat in the whole warrior cat books.

I'd say she's intelligent for these reasons:

1. She was wise enough to raise Leafpool's kits instead of letting her sister suffer

2. She did her work, used her mind to help her clan, when the truth came out

She showed her smarts, when she able to figure out how to make the foxtraps safe: Taking a stick and placing it inside to trigger it. She also picked up on Hawkfrost being evil when no one else did.

14 Dovewing Dovewing is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She has pale gray fur with green, pr sky-blue, or pale gold eyes. Her first appearance is in the fourth arc, know as Omen of the Stars, in the book The Fourth Apprentice. She was part of the Power of Three, and her power was to hear and see things very far away, farther than any normal cat could ever do. Her parents are Whitewing and Birchfall, and her sister is named Ivypool. She has three kits; Lightleap, Pouncestep, Shadowsight, and a mate named Tigerstar. (The second)

I'm going to blunt here; Dovewing isn't smart. In fact, she makes some very reckless and stupid chooses, especially when it comes to the fact she can't get over Tigerheart. And the fact in Tigerheart's shadow, she goes ahead and leaves Thunderclan, for what ever strange reason, and gives birth to her kits in the city, like that's going to be any safer. And then she decides to be even more selfish by living with Tigerheart in Shaodowclan, leaving all her friends and family behind.

She made a lot of dumb decisions, and she isn't known to be intelligent, but neither is ivypool. I think their both pretty smart, even if they were slightly dumb at times.

She IS smart, you mouse-brained piles of stinking fox-dung. She is also kind and caring. Anyone who thinks other wise is mouse-dung.

Though she did make some dumb decisions, I'm gonna blunt here; she IS smart. DONE.

15 Brightheart Brightheart is a character from Warriors by Erin Hunter. She is a white she-cat with ginger patches. As an Apprentice she got attacked by dogs and got half of her face torn off. Her mate is Cloudtail and her kits are Whitewing, Ambermoon, Dewnose, and Snowbush.
16 Mistystar Mistystar is a lithe, pale blue-gray she-cat with thick, sleek fur, a pink nose, a plumpy tail, and wide, ice-blue eyes. Her mother was Bluestar and her father is Oakheart. Her adopted mother was Graypool and her adopted father is Thrushpelt. Her sister is Mosskit and her brother is Stonefur, her adopted sibling is Swankit. Her mate is Blackclaw. Mistystar's daughter is Primerosepaw and her sons are Pikepaw, Perchkit and Reedwhisker. Her apprentices are Feathertail, Mothwing, and Dapplenose.

She knows how to lead. All her 'cringy' decisions were justified, and well measured. Plus, she has the perfect balance of EQ and IQ, you go mistystar!

She discovered the secret to immortality so she must be pretty smart.

17 Hollyleaf Hollyleaf was one of the rare, strictly loyal cats of ThunderClan.

Her birth broke the warrior code, and she killed Ashfur in fear of him revealing the truth over her family. She lived in the tunnels for a while, before rejoining ThunderClan. Hollyleaf was slain by Hawkfrost and spent her last moments with her mother Leafpool saying her last words ”I couldn’t bear to… to leave without knowing my mother.” more.

I think Hollyleaf is really smart because, she stopped the fight with RiverClan and ThunderClan! All she did was make peace.

I think Hollyleaf is the smartest because she not only wanted to be the best for her clan, but she thought her problems through to make things better. Go Hollyleaf!

Hollyleaf is so smart she wanted the best for her Clan!

18 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost is a villain character from the Warriors series. Hawkfrost is a dark brown tabby tom with a snow-white underbelly and ice-blue eyes. Hawkfrost was a former Riverclan warrior and member of the Dark Forest. Hawkfrost tried to kill Firestar with a fox trap but was killed by his brother Brambleclaw by his neck being pierced by the stick of the fox trap.

I'm confused on why he isn't higher. He was able to manipulate bramblestar, mothwing and ashfur and managed to trap firestar. When he is in the dark forest he was able to manipulate ivypool and several more trainees. Even the warriors wiki describes him as calculating and smart.

He should be #1! He manipulated a med cat, his brother and his leader.

I have no idea why I voted him,only a mouse- brain would follow him.

19 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 it. She was reincarnated as Cinderheart so she could accomplish her life-long dream of becoming a warrior and her spirit was released by Lionblaze, before the battle with the Darkforest
20 Sandstorm
21 Feathertail Feathertail is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series called Warrior Cats. She's a slender, silver-tabby she-cat with sky-blue eyes and a plump tail. She is the daughter of Silverstream and Graystripe, Stormfur's sister and Crowfeather's first love interest. She used to be a Riverclan warrior before joining Starclan. She and her brother were one of the chosen cats to go the journey to the sun-drown place along with Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Squirrelpaw and Crowpaw in the second arc.
22 Graystripe Graystripe is a cat in a series Warrior Cats. He is named after the grey stripe that goes down his back. In the second book he falls in love with a cat named Silverstream. He is also friends with his childhood friend Firestar. He became mates with Millie who gave birth to their kits Blossomfall, Bumblestripe and Briarlight.

Eh...he's kinda stupid for flipping going off to the river to meet up wit Silverstream (spoilert) the river clan leaders daughter, which is against warrior code, with the fact that Tigerclaw suspected it..

Even though Graystripe eats a lot, he is smart and quick thinking.

He is very sexy

23 Tigerheart Tigerheart, now known as Tigerstar, is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series named Warrior Cats. He became more important to the plot after gaining his own book, Tigerheart's Shadow. He was one of the cats to have worked as a spy on the Dark Forest. Now he currently is the more.
24 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw is a villain in the Warrior Cats series. Thistleclaw is a gray-and-white tabby tom with spiky fur and amber eyes

Thistleclaw is a very manipulative and intelligent cat. He manipulated Spottedkit so she would like him.

25 Alderheart

Alderheart is smarter than I will ever be!
