Most Misunderstood Warrior Cats

Cats from the Erin Hunter books I think are misunderstood.
The Top Ten
1 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.

"Misunderstood". She could not accept that Appledusk had more than one mate (very likely). She caused her kits' deaths, since she could have gone over the Twoleg bridge/ wait out the storm. But, no. She wanted Frecklewish to risk her life for HER irresponsibility.
Nothing excuses her actions. But, her point of view is actually fun.

YES! I'm so glad Mapleshade is first. To make you understand, I'll do a thing that compares Mapleshade to Bluestar.

1. Mapleshade fell in love with Riverclan warrior, same as Bluestar

2. Someone found out about Mapleshade and her forbidden love while Bluestar lied to her whole entire clan about the kits thing.

3. Bluestar had one kit die when all of Mapleshade's kits died.

4. Bluestar became leader and Mapleshade went to the dark forest.

5. Mapleshade wants revenge when Bluestar is enjoying her easy life.

6. Mapleshade fails to get revenge and Bluestar is sunning herself on the highrock.

Now you see why Mapleshade is misunderstood?

You have to be kidding me. She broke the warrior code, most likely knowing the consequences of her actions. She, instead of telling her clan which would have most likely been taken as a mistake by them, tells them it is a different DEAD cat. Ravenwing did the absolute right thing for telling the clan leader. For doing the right thing, he ends up getting killed by Mapleshade since ya' know, that's how it works. We shouldn't be praising her and calling her misunderstood. We shouldn't say her clan ruined her life. She did this most likely knowing the consequences and instead of telling the truth, she says the father of her kits is a dead tom. The only reason I pity her is due to the fact Appledusk decided to leave her when she needed him the most. Other than that, she isn't misunderstood.

When people think of Mapleshade, they hate her because she is apparently "evil" and has killed many cats. But most people don't think on why she killed them. First, she was in love with a RiverClan warrior, which even though it was against the warrior code, doesn't deserve too severe of a punishment, but of course she gets exiled from her Clan for doing the same thing that COUNTLESS cats have done. She takes her kits with her and tries to cross the river to get to her mate, but her kits drown, all of them, while crossing. And then RiverClan rejected her. After that, she turned bitter. She gave her life to her dedication of getting revenge for her innocent kits, sent to their deaths by ThunderClan, her own Clan.

2 Ashfur Ashfur is a character created by Erin Hunter for the book series named Warrior Cats. Ashfur is a muscular pale gray tom with darker flecks and dark blue eyes. He has short, thick fur, and a torn ear.

I think Ashfur is very misunderstood. He was an amazing character. He supported Squirrelflight every single time Brambleclaw upset her and he was very loyal to his clan. In my opinion, his whole problem later on was all caused by Squirrelflight! She practically just used him to make Brambleclaw jealous. Of course, he fell in love, but once Squirrelflight got back together with Brambleclaw, she pretend they never had any relationship. Squirrelflight was the one that broke him! She didn't even care that he was lonely and heartbroken! He had to bottle up all of his feelings. I know what it feels like, and let me just say it's not a good feeling. He is an amazing cat, but everyone thinks he is a lunatic. No one actually stops and realizes that his personality change was all Squirrelflight's fault.

Ashfur is NOT an evil or bad character. He was a loyal and hard-working apprentice. He was always kind, and honestly, he was just your average loyal clan cat. I feel like his situation was a bit similar like Bluestar's, because they both went a bit crazy, but only after they got betrayed by those they trusted. Ashfur really, truly loved Squirrelflight. It's just that Squirrelflight loved Brambleclaw, and that drove him into obsession. I just really don't like that he tried to use and kill Leafpool's (Or Squirrelflight's) kits, Lionpaw, Jaypaw, and Hollypaw. But as I said, it was because he got driven into obsession and insanity. Ashfur isn't my favorite character, but he is greatly misunderstood and wrongly hated.

Ashfur is not cruel, he's just misunderstood. Squirrelflight drove him to do the things he did! He would never have hurt anyone if she hadn't hurt him first. He was used and discarded by the cat he loved most in the world; how could that NOT drive him insane? Especially since he had LITERALLY NO SUPPORT from his so-called friends and "loyal" Clanmates. No wonder he did what he did. I don't blame him for not forgiving a single one of them. He was heartbroken, suffering, and nobody cared. I know how he feels! It's not that easy to just "get over it." He deserved so much better. He deserved a life away from the Clans, away from everyone who hurt and abused him, a life where he can be happy for once. I don't blame Ashfur for a single thing he did. He wasn't himself after what Squirrelflight did to him. It wasn't his fault that he loved her too much.

Misunderstood! Ashfur? Ha ha hilarious! Wait, seriously! Some fan girl actually thinks that this lunatic is misunderstood! I understand that he found it to hard to be friends but he could at least try to know...sane! But no, he tried to kill Firestar, Lionblaze in training and all of Squirrelflight's foster kits just because someone just wanted to be friends! I mean, I liked him before the whole love triangle thing but now! I'm surprised Yellowfang stood up for him in StarClan. He loved to much! Seriously! More like he hated to much! Like another crazy cat *cough Tigerstar cough!

#Ashfur is not misunderstood!

3 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 feel so bad for Hollyleaf. She isn't my favorite character, but still. First, she wanted to become a medicine cat so that she could help others. Then, she failed as a medicine cat since she couldn't handle seeing others in pain. Then, her brother succeeds as a medicine cat. Then, she is told by her brother that the three of them (Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf) are part of a prophecy which tells that each of them have special powers. THEN, a fire starts at the camp but Ashfur tries to kill Hollyleaf, Jayfeather, and Lionblaze since Squirrelflight didn't love him. THEN, Hollyleaf discovers that her whole life was a lie and that her real parents were Leafpool (A medicine cat - is strictly forbidden to have kits or a mate) and Crowfeather. (From a different clan!) THEN, Hollyleaf finds out that she actually isn't part of the prophecy and that she doesn't have any powers. THEN, Hollyleaf runs away into tunnels which collapse and end up killing her. That is just too much drama and ...more

I agree with this. Hollyleaf felt like she had to eliminate the breach in the warrior code...and took that wayyy to seriously. I think she felt it was HER fault that the sister scandal (that's my name for the whole leaf/squirrel/crowfeather kit thing)happened, and felt like she had to correct it. Poor Hollyleaf, she had a good heart!

Hollyleaf...the warrior code was what structured the basic values of her life, and she leaned heavily on it. When she found out her very existence was breaking the code, she cracked. Revealing her Clan's secrets in a Gathering when ThunderClan had no idea what happened, and killing Ashfur, which was so pointless since she blurted everything out anyway. Ashfur wasn't a good cat, and he deserves to be punished, but Hollyleaf isn't home and dry on the good side either.

Totally. Also, just saying Hollyleaf didn't actually kill Ashfur. If you've read warriors, the ultimate guide, on her page it says. 'She struck, he slipped, and when he fell into the stream with blood streaming from the wounds in his throat, she knew he was beyond saving." So there you go, sorry if I spoiled anything.

4 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.

Ok, so, Scourge was bullied by his own siblings at birth and told that he was unwanted and that he would die because of it. Scourge escaped and became a rogue but then nearly died because Tigerpaw (Tigerstar) tried to kill him when he was on a patrol. Scourge later had to try to kill a dog (But the dog ran away because of its own shadow) and since he sort of succeeded, he became leader of Bloodclan. Basically, Scourge got bullied his whole life (especially because of his tiny size) and many cats underestimated. He nearly got killed so many times and he tried hard to prove himself to other cats and succeeded. I honestly think Scourge is a misled cat just trying to survive.

He was bullied as a kit, was attacked by a clan cat when he was exploring to prove himself, although he exaggerated a bit when he came home. He was so cute and innocent when he was a kit. I understand that he wanted revenge on Tigerstar for attacking him when he was exploring, but I do think that he turned a bit evil when he took all 9 of Tigerstar's lives at once. Yeah that was a bit over the top Erin. Please, why do so many people hate scourge when he was just trying to prove himself to his mother, and littermates. Don't hate him. I love scourge, forever and ever! He should be number 1 on this list. He was the most misunderstood of all.

Well, Scourge was mistreated because of his size as a kit. When I read Tigerpaw (later Tigerstar) attacking him I thought that if I had found him by the border I would've been smiley and happy and let him go back, but tell him he couldn't come back. Instead Tigerpaw attacks him. A runt kitten, how unfair is that? It scarred him, it hurt him. It made anger form inside and he wanted to never be bullied again. The only way he could do that is to rise up against other cats. Deep down he has been broken.

Even the fanbase seems to hate Scourge. It seems like so many people are so against him. People like to say, "Oh too bad, your brother teased you and now you're evil! " No, I'm pretty sure he was ATTACKED and also he was likely going to be abandoned on the street anyway. You can see in the manga that he was kind of forced to have the "ice in his veins" because otherwise he'd be killed. Yes, he was evil. But earlier on, he had to be evil in order to survive.

5 Crowfeather

I feel like crowfeather is under appreciated. Leafpool broke his heart, and Nightcloud clearly likes him, plus I bet he had tons of pressure form his clan, so OF COURSE he mated with nightcloud! As for breeze pelt, he was in no shape whatsover to raise a kit. He was so lost in grief, and his irritability is not a flaw - its who he is! You can't expect him to change who he is, he has a good heart - like look at how many people he saved! Who cares about his personality, he's A GOOD CAT, he cares, and he's smart, funny, and all around awesome! I feel like people don't take the time to think about his situation - especially since he faced it alone. And he tried, and is still trying to love breeze pelt, YES, he is partially at fault, but at least he has good intentions. Love this character, and totally misunderstood.

The only reason he never seemed to loved Breezepelt was because he was worried he would fail them. He lost the cat who really seemed to care for him and saw what was under his grumpy shell. Then he tried to run away with Leafpool and then he had to back to his Clan where they all probably thought "Crowfeather fell in love with TWO cats from anther Clan and tried to run away? He is so disloyal! " He thought he had to take a mate from his Clan to prove his loyalty, and he was grieving over the fact he lost all he loved! He just wanted a mate and this seemed like the only way at the time. He stayed away from Breezepelt because he doesn't want to fail him like he did with Feathertail and Leafpool.

No. I don't care at all that he's "misunderstood" because he's NOT. He is the worst warrior cat I know so far. He attacked his mate, hates his sons and daughter, is overly sensitive, only mated Nightcloud because he wanted to prove to his clan that he was loyal, confessed his love for a gosh darn medicine cat who I also hate (no, I don't know what anyone else says so don't try to make me think I like Leafpool because I hate her), and is just an overall horrible character

Okay, no. He was treated fine, and he had no reason to act the way he did. Nobody treated him badly. Everyone had to put up with him being rude and selfish for NO REASON. His first mate was from a different Clan and died saving him, but why? Then he likes Leafpool, then hates her because they can't live together. Then he uses Nightcloud. He is not misunderstood at all.
Again, my opinion. You can think whatever you want.

6 Millie Millie is a character in the Warriors series. She's a small, short-furred light gray tabby with blue eyes and a torn ear. Also current mate of Graystripe and mother of Bumblestripe, Blossomfall and Briarlight.

Not gonna lie, I absolutely love Millie, especially sense I read the Manga Greystripe's Adventure, because it gives more development on their relationship. She did really save him, not just from his terrible fever, that probably would of killed him otherwise. But she also saved him emotionally, he was dreaming about Silverstream when he had the fever, and he might not have woken up if Millie hadn't woken him. He was the best thing for him, he needed another cat to love, since almost all his family members where dead. And he did truly love her, even if he does love Silverstream more. And people are hating on her because she spent more time, and payed more attention to Briarlight. But if your child has been paralyzed, you would pay more attention to them, no doubt. And she also has some really good quotes, and even Bramblestar had said that he really had never liked her much, but that he admired her after she said something inspiring (I could not find the quote though) And I admire her ...more

Stop hating on this cat she deserves more. Poor Millie everyone forgets the good things about her
1 She left for Greystripe
2 she saved his life countless times
3 she may of kept her kitty pet but that shows no shame in her past which I think is good.
4 she didn't give up on their journey and treated Greystripe kindly even when he was snappy and stupid.
They remember the bad thing
1 she made a mistake and everyone makes mistakes! She was only doing what she thought was right. If she knew how Blossomfall was feeling she would say sorry. Plus Blossomfall did need to grow up.
They remember the one or two good things about Silverstream
1. Stormfur and Feathertail
2 She saved Greystripe once
They forget the bad things about her
1 She betrayed the clan
2 she thought everything would be ok cause she was leaders daughter and went on about it.
3 caused an argument between Firestar and Greystripe
4. Made me end up disliking Greystripe when she went and ...more

Millie is a good cat! She worried over Briarlight because she loved her. She ignored Blossomfall because she was too sad over Briarlight. Some people hate her because she didn't change her awesome name. A name identifies a character, and Millie didn't want to change who she is. Boulder didn't change his name. It's OK! And she did replace Silverstream, but she mended the hole in poor Graystripe heart.

Okay let's look at Silverstream and then we look at Millie and see which is better.

She is a Riverclan she-cat and fell in love with Graystripe. Fireheart tried to tell them it was a terrible idea (It was) but they didn't listen. Silverstream said that she the leaders daughter and that she wouldn't having consequences. Then she thought it would be great to mate with Graystripe like they can't have kits that way. When they do have kits instead of freaking out to this huge problem they are so happy. Then Silverstream dies for being dumb A.K.A having kits with someone she knows she can't be with. Stupid mouse-brained Silverstream is dumber than a kit.

Now let's look at Millie! An actual good character

She used to be a kittypet until she found Graystripe. She helped him get back to his clan but wanted to join to so she did. by the way on this little journey Graystripe was kind of mean to her. Anyway they fall in love and have 3 kits! ...more

7 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 more.

HECK YEAH, GO DOVEWING! She is super misunderstood by the fandom, but I personally think she's the most realistic warrior cat and has so many flaws! Yes, she has cool powers, but she didn't want them and her sister shunned her because of that! Yes, two Tom's like her but so does squirrelflight and starflower and I'm pretty sure people don't use that against them when they try to call them Mary sues. Shes immature, naive, trusting, and stubborn. Four flaws right there at the top of my head. I don't blame her for going to shadow clan, all her life was meant to be responsibility and protecting the clan, all she wanted was to be happy and have her own family. Happiness is something we all want. While other cats stayed chained to responsibility, dovewing actually seeked a happy ending for herself, and that's brave and admirable, the courage to do that. A lot of people would seek happiness if they could, and that's what dovewing did. I once tried to hate her for that, but I just couldn't. ...more

Dovewing is an amazing character in my opinion. People call her a mary sue even though she has so many flaws, it's a bit confusing. She is sweet and I loved reading her point of view. And after she lost her powers she was scared, I mean, she had the powers her entire life, imagine if you were her. You would freak out as well. So what if she doesn't like Bumblestripe, there are so many reasons to dislike Bumble. Bumblestripe took out all his anger on Dove and would do anything for them to be together. I am so glad that Dovewing left him for Tigerheart. Though I do have to agree that their love was a bit rushed. "She stalked Tigerheart! " She loved him, why not use her powers to make sure her lover is safe? Is that so wrong?! "She broke the warrior code! " So did Firestar, Leafpool, Yellowfang, JAYFEATHER, and almost every single cat in the Clans! "She named one of her kits Shadowkit! " Who cares?!

Dovewing should be number 1! She is one an amazing cat.
1). She is not a mary-sue, she has many flaws.
2). She is so sweet and kind and how she joins Shadowclan just to be with Tigerheart really shows something.
3). This is my opinion of the Bumblestripe business, you can't change who you love, you can self-improve but you can't change who you love! Then Bumblestripe is practically forcing Dovewing to be with him! It's not fair!

I wouldn't consider Dovewing my favorite, I personally don't like her, but I understand. She literally did nothing to Ivypool to make her so angry. She is considered these things, like Mary Sue, but sometimes she knows the world isn't revolving around her. She had feelings for Tigerheart and went to ShadowClan with him, though she could've went to ThunderClan but her love was strong (enough).

8 Ravenpaw Ravenpaw is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series Warrior Cats. He's a skinny, jet-black tom with a small white dash on his chest, greens eyes and a long, thing white tipped tail. He is shy, jumpy and nervous more.

He would have been killed by Tigerclaw(star) if he didn't run away to the barn. I feel a little bad for him for literally watching Tigerclaw KILL Redtail.

Wait a sec. Has anyone read Ravenpaws farewell? I'm not a spoiler so I won't say
What happened. ANYWAYS...
1. Ravenpaw would of been KILLED if he didn't run away
2. The ship RavenXBarely would not exist :(
3. Tigerstar would probably get away with all of the murders he tried to get away with.

He's kind of a wimp. He ran away from Tigerstar instead of staying and fighting alongside his clan. He just decided to go be a loner

I love him! I only just read his death- so sad!

9 Crookedstar Crookedstar is a huge, light brown tabby tom with green eyes and a twisted jaw. more.

What is WRONG with Rainflower? And Mapleshade? They have both been cruel in Crookedstar's life but I still hate Maple more because she was pure evil and Rain is not that bad really. But anyways I think Crookedstar's more SAD than misunderstood. I hate Maple, who's with me?

Well, he was kind of misunderstood. He breaks his jaw, and his mother turns her back on him, naming poor Stormkit Crookedkit. Then she starts paying attention to only Oakheart. That must have been really sad. But every one liked him. However, when Rainflower died, falling into a creek, and Crookedjaw didn't save her, Oakheart blamed him for her death, though it was Mapleshade who knocked him away.

Smokeshade of PineClan

I literally crossed out the crooked part in all of my books and replaced it with storm because that's WHAT HIS NAME SHOULD BE! I love the story behind their names too. Storm for the giant storm on the night they were born and oak for the oak tree that sheltered them.

Okay, okay. He was treated very badly, but really he wasn't a bad cat.

10 Foxheart

EXCUSE ME! She is NOT misunderstood. She mocked and bullied Yellowfang. But really, she is just really rude. And by the way I hate to say this but I think her name suits her well.

I like Foxheart. HE in Bluestar's Prophecy it says Foxheart is a bright ginger TOM! I don't understand why everyone hates him so much!

And just HOW, may I ask, is she misunderstood? She drove poor Yellowfang crazy because she won over Raggedstar!

She is misunderstood HOW exactly? She is practically a yandere, except not so much killing.

The Contenders
11 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 more.

She IS misunderstood! WHY do people hate her? What has she done wrong? I dislike the ship SpottedXFire but that does not mean Spottedleaf has killed any cats and she's never done ANYTHING bad. why all the hate?

She is overheated, she didn't really do that much things that got her to be so hated.

I don't think she is misunderstanding stood! she is my favorite medicine cat!

Spottedleaf is awesome! Not misunderstood

12 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, more.

Young Tigerstar probably wanted to serve Thunderclan well but Thisleclaw made him ambitious. And then he just wanted revenge even though I hate him I understand why he turned out to be such a rotten egg.
If only his mentor was Bluefur/Bluestar he would have been better and would have been a great leader

Tigerstar IS evil, yes, but not as evil as people think. When he was a kit, a Shadowclan patrol saved him from a fox, so he said that one day he would help Shadowclan. He had at least a little but of a right to kill Redtail, because he saved Redtail from a hawk and Redtail said he owed his life to Tigerstar (read Redtail's Debt). I'm not saying he isn't evil, but he doesn't deserve all of what people say about him.

Sure, I mean he turned out evil in the end. Everyone hates him for it. But, did it occur to anyone that it wasn't entirely his fault.

1. His father abandoned him to become a kittypet.

2. Everyone taunted him about how Pinestar turned kittypet, so he wanted to prove himself.

3. He was mentored by the purely evil Thistleclaw, who clearly rubbed off on him.

4. Sure, he was ambitious, but he wanted to do what he thought was right for the clan.

5. He was really sad, when his two sisters died.

I don't think a lot of people get that the sixth book would never have happened if it weren't for Thistleclaw. He told Tigerpaw to attack young Scourge, which made Scourge mad and go on a rampage. He also was stepped all over on as a kit, and I blame Pinestar (Or Sunstar) for making Thistlclaw his mentor.

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.

I don't think Squirrelflight was THAT misunderstood. She was loved her whole life. It was just when her fellow clanmates put blame on her because she took Leafpool's (her sister) kits, so that she could protect her sister! She did and was just trying to do the right thing. She wanted to protect her sister and the kits. Squirrelflight never did anything wrong. (I'm sorry Brambleclaw, I really like you, but HOW DARE YOU get angry at our Squirrelflight when she loved you her whole life and was just trying to protect her sister?!) Anyways, Squirrelflight is amazing and did nothing to get hated or blamed.

She was trying to do the right thing, though she caused a lot of pain...

I really didn't get why Brambleclaw/star was so mad at her!

She's not misunderstood. She's a good cat

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

He had EVERYRIGHT to attack moonflower! What on EARTH was thunderclan thinking attacking his herb store?! He was defending his clan, what would you expect? How can you get mad at him and not Lionblaze, he killed russet fur! What about firestar, he killed scrouge! So yeah, if you ask me, he was being noble, and is VERY misunderstood amongst the fandom.

Herbs are essential for the being of the clan and it can take a while to refill a whole stack. Without herbs clan cats could die. Hawkheart is a medicine cat. He only has basic fighting skills and thought he could have tried to put up a fight to Moonflower, he would have likely lost the fight. He couldn't do anything to stop her other than killing her.

He killed Moonflower. That's ALL he's known for. Well what do you expect? He was once a great warrior and obviously he's not going to let a cat from ThunderClan steal herbs in a battle that was fought just from Goosefeather's (Um, he was like, getting really old) sign. I'm pretty sure one of the WindClan cats even said that StarClan wouldn't have allowed that battle to be won. From Bluestar's Prophecy. I can't say I'm entirely glad he killing Moonflower because I loved the way she treated Bluefur and Snowfur but seriously, nothing's going to keep Hawkheart from defending his herbs when leaf-bare was coming. ~Mistyrain

Hawkheart may have killed Moonflower but he's not a bad cat. He killed her to protect his herbs because Windclan needed them. He's very nice to Yellowfang in Yellowfang's Secret. He's overall a good cat who is loyal to his clan.

15 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.

I get him, but that doesn't mean I have to like him! I think I'd like him better if he stopped whining. I feel like by whining, I could never respect him.

First of all, jayfeather is my FAVE warrior cat in all of the warrior series. Since he fell into a thorn bush, thorns got into his eyes and became blind. He didn't give up and tried to train and got apprenticed by brightheart. But starclan chose his path and destiny to become a medicine cat. He had no other option so he finally accepted. (Who argues with starclan anyways?)

I understand why he's on this list. Being blind and all makes everyone treat him differently and when Firestar made his mentor Brightheart I felt really bad, but I feel like he's everyone's favorite cat.

Well, I get this, that he's on this list. He didn't want to be a Medicen Cat, and some people misunderstand his grumpy temper.

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

He never did anything that's actually bad. Sure he made Tigerstar kind of who he is, but that's just finger pointing. He was over confronting on border oatrols (MUDFUR). Mudfurs in star man and he was all thistleclaw was and more. Let's not forget about ash fur, who tried to kill fire stars daughter and 2/3 of the cats who saved all the clans. Thistleclaw was just mean spirited, and had a regard to thunderclap that he could protect it with tooth and claw. Out of all dark forest cats, this guy is the one who should be in starclan. Oh and did I mention how bluefur thought he was a threat before he did anything? She hated him for nothing. (Or because he was with her sister and she wa biased) Anyway, a cat who BROKE THE WARRIOR CODE is viewed as better than a cat who did nothing to break the rules WHATSOEVER.

Thistleclaw lost everything he ever had in his life. Because of Bluefur, Snowfur died and left Whitekit and Thistleclaw alone until Bluefur just had to butt in and take Whitekit away from Thistleclaw, taking the only thing he had left of his previous life and Snowfur. He went out and fought a riverclan patrol on purpose,he had not reason to live anymore so he went out fighting for his clan. He was always a loyal warrior unlike Bluefur.

He was never good or misunderstood. He's just evil. He was evil before snowfur died. He taught Tigerstar to be bad which led to so many lives being lost

I honestly hate him, for he was super evil from the Dark Forest, but I don't understand what made him go there really...

17 Brokenstar Brokenstar is a villain character from the Warrior Cats series. Brokenstar is a matted, dark brown tabby tom with a broad, flat face, a bent tail, and orange eyes. Brokenstar was a former Shadowclan leader and a member of the Dark Forest. His mother is Yellowfang and his father is Raggedstar.

Many people think that Brokenstar was one of the worst characters, but NO! Like, I honestly don't like Brokenstar either, but he deserved so much better! He got so mistreated in his life, that he had nothing left but hatred. Think about it! His foster mother, Lizardstripe, hated,neglected, and bullied Brokenstar. Brokenstar's foster siblings (Lizardstripe's kits) also bullied Brokenstar. Brokenstar was named "Broken" for cat's sake! Then, his hatred drives him into ambition, which makes him murder his father. (THE GUILT!) Then, he gets driven out by his own clan. (I mean, that actually was fair, but still.) THEN, he gets captured by an enemy clan. (Thunderclan) THEN, he gets blinded by his own mother. THEN, the cats in the enemy clan rebuked him and bullied him. THEN, he gets fed deathberries by his own mother. THEN, he finds out that his whole life was a lie and dies. Yep. A VERY misunderstood cat.

Haha yeah...NO not funny. Even though Yellowfang tried to befriend him when he was a lonely kit he was arrogant and power-hungry. What's there to misunderstand?

All I'm going to say is that Yellowfang described his firs look as being one of pure hatred she had never seen on any cat before.

Just because he was bullied doesn't mean he should start killing kits. He's insane.

18 Breezepelt

It was sooo hard to pick a cat from this list between Thistleclaw, Crowfeather, Ivypool, Goosefeather, and Clear Sky. But I finally have to choose Breezepelt. I admit that I'm not fully caught up with the last books from Vision of Shadows so there might be something that he does that will make me feel differently, but after reading Crowfeather's Trial, I grew a knew understanding of the cat I used to hate. Cause he does bad stuff and all but he only does that stuff because of his messed up parental situation. He feels rejected by his father and he feels jealous of Jayfeather and Lionblaze for getting more attention from Crowfeather. This is why I think Breezepelt is the most misunderstood cat.

Just like Brokenstar, he had parents who...well a parent who failed to express love. He was confused, yes he was wrong to do what he did, but his whole life was filled with hurt, brought to his attention by nigjhtcloud, totally misunderstood

Why does everyone hate on him? That's my question. He was never evil, he was blamed for everything. He just wanted attention, and his father to approve of him, but Crowfeather was to scared of failing them, so he pretended he and his mother never existed. He only attacked Jayfeather because he wanted some attention, people may see him as attention seeking, but he was broken.

I actually feel kind of bad for Breezepelt. I know, Stupid Crowfeather, that you love Leafpool, and not Nightcloud, but she certainly loves you, so don't take it out on poor Breezepelt. Sure, he lived a sheltered life, and it could have been so much better if Crowfeather hadn't ruined it.

19 Silverstream SIlverstream is a character created by Erin Hunter to the book series named Warrior Cats. Silverstream is a sleek, soft, and thick-furred, slender, silver -and-black tabby she-cat with a finely shaped head, and bright blue eyes. She's the daughter of Crookedstar and Willowbreeze, former mate of Graystripe and mother of Feathertail and Stormfur. She used to be a Riverclan Warrior/Queen before joining Starclan. more.

I love Silverstream! She had such a strong heart and loved Graystripe! I feel like she was misunderstood because she loved a cat from another clan, but you can't help who love, for sure.

Shouldn't even be a cat

20 Bramblestar Bramblestar is the leader of ThunderClan. His mate is Squrrielflight and his kits are Dandilionkit, Juniperkit, Sparkpelt and Alderheart. Bramblestar sister is Tawnypelt, his parents are Goldenflower and Tigerstar. Bramblestar is a huge and muscular dark brown tabby tom with amber eyes, he has sleek fur, long claws, and a scar on his shoulder.
21 Rainflower

I have to say, when I first read Crookedstar's Promise, I despised her with all my heart. But after watching a theory by Bright Guardian Akira on her reasons for her negligence, which actually makes A LOT of sense, I have slightly changed my mind. In fact, I think she is a very interesting character, she has a lack of background being shown, yet she manages to make us feel like she has lots of character development, even if it makes us hate her. And my heart softened just a bit more when I spent more time thinking about how she is the grandmother of Silverstream, and the great grandmother of Feathertail, two of my favorite characters, and they look a lot like Rainflower also. I also never saw her as an terrible abuser, I think negligence and abuse are two often different things, which is just the case for her. She did not verbally or physically abuse him, it was the lack of interaction between Rainflower and Crookedkit that led to emotional abuse.

I would say that Rainflower is not misunderstood. She neglected her kit Crookedstar just because he got injured. Shouldn't she be showing him some sympathy? Rainflower broke a warrior code because of this as well. I'm glad Crookedstar didn't manage to save her. How is a cat that completely ignores her own kit, and changes the kit's name? I feel like Rainflower did this all for her own satisfaction. I can't understand how she's in StarClan.

She isn't misunderstood. At all. She is ignorant and selfish, only caring for Oakkit/Oakpaw/Oakheart, and ignoring Crokedkit/paw/jaw/star. Crookedkit felt useless and dumb, and Rainflower does not deserve to be forgiven. No mother should directly reject her kits like that. And how come she got to go to StarClan while Mapleshade, one of the best warriors, has to get exiled and go to the Dark Forest?

This one I have to disagree. She started to hate her own son because he slipped and broke his jaw. Which made him mess up his face, but I wouldn't hate my son if he broke his face! She loved Oakheart more than Crookedstar. I screamed "YES! " when she died.

22 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.

She was totally misunderstood. She went to the Dark Forest because she wanted to be a strong warrior like her sister, Dovewing, she didn't know that the Forest was evil, she just wanted to feel special like her sister. I think maybe she felt like she was left out. I know how that feels. Ivypool should be in the top ten for a fact! She is so much more misunderstood than any other cat besides maybe Mapleshade! She's also just better than Dovewing who betrayed her own clan! Who wants to have superpowers anyway! I know I don't! Ivypool 4 Ever! ;D

Ivypool was spying on cat HELL. What did Dovewing do? Get a power from Starclan so she could listen to a tree falling? Ivypool had risked her life just so the clans wouldn't be destroyed. She also save hundreds of cats from death. She should've been part of the three, not Dovewing.

Ivypool is misunderstood! So is Dovewing! These cats need more love! Dovewing was part of the prophecy and Ivypool helped as if her life depended on it, which, IT DID!

She's one of my favorite cats. She's very misunderstood. Her sister made a bigger difference than her. Ivypool felt left out

23 Mudclaw

He thought he was acting on the will of starclan, I mean try to put yourself in his shoes..Paws... You are deputy and your leader dies, you think you are in charge now, then some warrior says that there the clan leader when you're deputy! Onewhisker couldn't prove to him that Tallstar said you will become leader. Neither Brambleclaw or Firestar. I'm glad he's in starclan, honestly.

In winds of change, we'll finally get to see what this poor tom thought on the inside...Please respect him, he just wanted to be leader, please...

Ugh. I would rather have Mudstar than stupid, stinky, rude, snobby, snooty, arrogant, stupid-named Onestar.

24 Redtail

There's practically nothing about to him to even firm an opinion about whether you like him or not...why is he here?

25 Sandstorm

She is a super snob who gets offended by everything. I am NOT A HATER and she used to be one of my fave characters until she got offended by everything fireheart did. She acted like a spoiled teen who wanted a rich boyfriend. She's not even a good example. Cinderpelt really loved fireheart. Here's the reason why I say this: Cinderpelt always trusted fireheart, even more than bluestar. Who did she tell her prophecies to? Fireheart. Who did she run to for help? Fireheart. How did sandstorm treat fireheart? " I thought I was your friend! " Boohoo hop I just don't feel bad for her she's not misunderstood she's completely spoiled

I really hate Sandstorm. There, I said it. Now before you go and hate on me, read my list.
1. She is Firestar's mate, yet she was a bully to him when they were apprentices. Firestar deserves way better. Heck, Cinderpelt would have made a better mate! love Cinderpelt.
2. She's so sarcastic and rude. She is always getting on to Fireheart/star about everything. Chill out!
3. She gets offended too easily, most of the time over stupid things. When Fireheart chose another cat instead of her to mentor Tawnykit, Sandstorm blew her top. What's this jerk's problem? It's Fireheart's decision, not hers. Plus, it's for the good of the Clan.
4. She's spoiled. All she wants is a rich, perfect mate who can do anything for her. If it isn't perfect, she lashes out!
5. She attacks MAPLESHADE. My favorite character! I wish that Mapleshade had killed her!
That's my list, but don't hate me for my honest opinion.

Honestly she is so much better than Spottedleaf. She loved Firestar for more than just a moon! She didn't die on him! She bore his horrible kits! She is not some super villan for stealing Firestar off Spottedleaf.

She was a stuck up, selfish cat who wailed who didn't deserve Firestar...the Hunters make her such a hero in A Vision of Shadows
