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,... read more

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.

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,... read more

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!

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.

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... read more

Jayfeather, well, it is part of his power that made him real smart. But he lost his power after the Great Battle, and he can still cope very well without his power, using his other senses to guide him.

"Jayfeather shows his braveness even when he's blind and he's really smart and intelligent to my opinion. And he's very independent too. So I think Jayfeather should be the Top 1 smartest."

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

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... read more

Yellowfang is smart, she knew about Brokenstar's evil plan, and she could feel the pain of others. That power would really help in healing, especially when the cat will not say what is hurting them.

One of my favourite cats. She isn't dumb, she chose being a medicine cat over love, but she should of thrown that piece of s-away.

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

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,... read more

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.

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... read more

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

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.

9 Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He becomes the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He is mates with Sandstorm and has two kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. Formerly a kittypet named Rusty, Firestar is killed by fatal wounds inflicted by the spirit of Tigerstar and a falling tree... read 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

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 was destined to be smart. Well mostly all medicine cat is suppose to be smart and I consider all medicine cats to be smart (except Jayfeather) leafpool just probably learned all her herbs in the first day

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

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

The Contenders
11 Alderpaw

Alderpaw/Alderheart is often called 'sensitive', he's quick to catch on to other's feelings and instinctively knows how to comfort them. He also always tries to do the right thing. He's just intelligent

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.

12 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... read more

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.

13 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... read more

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.

14 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.

She survived the dogs cuz she had the wit to Find her way back to life

15 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... read more

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.

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... read more

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

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!

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... read 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... read more

Hawkfrost is really smart like what he should have been 3 or whatever he trapped firestar with a trap then manipulated his brother Bramblestar etc how IS HE NOT HIGHER ??

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.

19 Cinderpelt A Medicine Cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter, she is a small, fluffy, sleek, and soft-furred she-cat with a smoky dark gray coat and wide blue eyes. Initially, she started out as a Warrior apprentice but was forced to train as a Medicine Cat after a monster broke her leg on the Thunderpath... read more

He is also friends with his childhood friend Firestar. He became mates with Millie who gave birth to their kits Blossomfall, Bumblestripe... read more

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.

23 Alderheart

Alderheart is smarter than I will ever be!

24 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... read more
25 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw is a villain in the Warrior Cats series. Thistleclaw is a gray-and-white tabby tom with spiky fur and amber eyes

Thisleclaw had made lots of good plans for example doing smth so another cat would like him etc trying his best to become leader or whatever.

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