Top 10 Saddest Warrior Cats Moments

The Top Ten
1 Crookedstar's Mom "abandons" Crookedstar

I think this made me shed a tear...I also wanted to punch her in the face...and then make her into a loving mother that doesn't only care for looks but for the soul...that's the problem with some people these days people don't accept each other. At least Crookedstar had Oakheart's shoulder to lean on when he needed it!

This is really sad for me, but I don't hate RainFlower. It doesn't justify her actions, but it has been confirmed that e only reason she left StormKit was she thought he would die, she changed his name so when he did die, she could tell herself it wasn't her kit, AND when she realized he would live, she was to ashamed to apologize. She was always proud of Crooked, and wanted to give him one of his lives, but StarClan forbid it, b it when Crooked died, she greeted him in StarClan, and they made up.

2 Firestar's death

Yes, this is pretty sad, but it makes sense. I'm not sniffling an whining over this because there was clear intent behind this.
Firestar was the main character from the beginning. We watched him grow and learn. We saw him defy stereotypes by showing even kittypets can be strong, he rooted out Tigerclaw's assassination plot, and in the end, he died defending the clan he built. It's a very tragic end for him, but I wouldn't want it any other way. If Firestar died before the great battle, it would've felt rushed and forced, as a way to have a new character take up leadership in their time of need. If he had died after, it wouldn't have the same emotional impact.
It's not just another casualty of war. It's the death of the main character, who we've followed for 24 books.

3 Mapleshade's life story

This really makes you think. Starclan are made of a bunch of jerks. They threw Mapleshade in the garbage can, but accepted APPLEDUSK.

It's so sad! So many people hate her but I have a lot of sympathy for her.

Curse Appledusk! Why does her life had to be so sad, she didn't even do anything!

4 Dovewing's birth

Ew. Mrs. Uglyidiot is here again. Ngl, I know exactly why this is on here. This cat was born! That's why! She should've never been born in the first place! She is way too whiny for my liking and Ivypool is heartbroken and dovewing tells her right to her face in front of everyone she's better than her. WHAT? I couldn't stand that! Oh, if only I were in the books! I'd kick dove's big but and through her down the drain. Dovewing is a huge, fat, ugly cat on the outside and inside and doesn't know how to stop whining. Oh boi do I hate that fat cat.

5 Gray Wing's death

OH MY STARCLAN. IT WAS SO SAD. And that's saying much because it don't really find a Warrior Cats death that sad! Well except for Yellowfang and Bluestar. Gray Wing didn't deserve to die nor have a brother like Clear Sky. He was so kind and brave and such a great father aka THE BEST WARRIOR CATS FATHER EVER. He deserve to see his real kits grow up. But no his stupid asthma had other plans. Before he even died I was sobbing saying no he can't died. I was crying sobbing groaning and I had to stop reading it for a moment because IT WAS SO SAD! And I almost GOT TEARS ON THE BOOK. I just couldn't hold back the tears and my emotions. But he died happy Slate Black Ear White Tail Silver Stripe Jagged Peak Clear Sky Pebble Heart Sparrow Fur and Windrunner was there. He also named WindClan and SkyClan. What was even sadly was that Black Ear White Tail and Silver Stripe were only kits! And that Gray Wing was telling him to forgive any harm he has been done to show kindness to his Clanmates. And Black Ear says you sound like you're saying goodbye. And Gray Wing says I am. And they beg him to stay saying no don't go. But Gray Wing dies! I miss him. One time I was telling my friend that I finished Path Of Stars. But I had good news and bad news. And she said what did some cat die? And I said that Gray Wing died but I know he's with Fluttering Bird Quiet Rain and Turtle Tail. Another time I was with her and I saying looking sad. She said are you okay? And said I'm fine I just miss Gray Wing. And I told my mom and she said you never get this upset at a death. She's so right. Go GRAY WING WE LOVE YOU. Why did you have to die? I STILL LOVE HIM AND MISSED HIM I WILL NEVER FORGET HIM.

6 Bluestar gives up her kits for the sake of ThunderClan

This was the second book I got from the warrior series and she was my favorite like firestar but her giving up her kits made me cry.

She saves ThunderClan, but gives up her own happiness for it.

Poor Kits! Bluestar should have have kept them and be deputy later

7 Feathertail's death

She was the cat I cried the most for. Usually tears just stay in my eyes, but they were running down my face! I couldn't think about anything else at school.

I know it was noble and all but it shattered Crowfeather and it was still a shock when I read the book for the second time.

She was amazing and just had to die helping the tribe but she did the right thing to do so.

8 Cinderpelt's death

It's just.. Cinderpelt was awesome, and this was one of the saddest (In my opinion) deaths in Warriors history.

So sad! She could had lived again, but she freed Cinderheart.

Cindy is my all time fave character!

9 Yellowfang's death in the ThunderClan fire

Nooooooo! Poor Yellowfang! She was the best! She didn't deserve that! I loved her since Firestar (back then Firepaw) started taking care of her, she was a bit mean then but began to soften up. I love how she was fierce and then also loving and... amazing. The name is also amazing. (SPOILERS) I felt so bad in Yelowfang's Secret when she always got blamed for doing bad things even though she didn't do them, other warriors/kits did it and she just felt the pain from them. Then, she had to become a medicine cat and she didn't want to! She trained as a warrior then she had to become an apprentice all over again to train as a medicine cat! -Morningstar of SunClan.

10 Jayfeather leaves Half Moon

Staying in the past was really Jayfeather's only chance of having a mate and kits. It was all just taken away from him, which really proves that he can't have anything or make any big decisions for himself, so I can understand why he's so frustrated and upset. Some people call him a brat for trying to get what he wants, but in the end he never really gets what he wants (staying in the past, becoming a warrior, living a normal life). But anyways, enough about Jayfeather, this scene was just really heartbreaking...Jayfeather and Half Moon both want something so bad, but they can't have it. But I really like how Half Moon came back for him in the end. I thought the whole "I'll wait for you forever" thing was really bittersweet and it has so much weight to it. We've seen Half Moon in StarClan before, so she'll probably be there when Jayfeather dies... :3

The Contenders
11 Twigkit and Violetkit's first gathering when they get split up

At last the kits understood what was happening. Violetkit began to wail in a shrill voice and lashed out helplessly with her tiny paws.
"No! No! Don't take her! " Twigkit screeched, flinging herself against Rowanstar's leg and raking her claws through his pelt.
"Alderpaw! Help me! " Violetkit begged. "I want to go home! I want Lilyheart! "
Dangling from his jaws, Violetkit twisted around so that she could still see her sister.
"Twigkit! Twigkit! " she kept on calling until she vanished from Alderpaw's sight.
The little gray kit had collapsed into a heap, letting out a desolate mewling. Alderpaw bent over and licked her head and ears. "Don't be sad, little one," he murmured. "We'll look after you. And you'll see Violetkit again, when you're old enough to come to Gatherings."
"But it's not the same," Twigkit whimpered. I want Violetkit now! And what will she do without Lilyheart? "

12 Leafpool's death between books

Destiny isn't a path that any cat follows blindly. It is always a matter of choice, and sometimes the heart speaks loudest. Deep down, I always knew what I had to do, and that's why I came back to the Clan. Whatever else happens, I trust you to know the right thing to do as well. Listen to your heart, Lionblaze, because that's where your true destiny lies." This truly touched me. No matter how much I hate Leaf Pool dieting, she was important, and loyal. No matter what got in her way, she conquered it. She lived for many good moons. Her seasons of StarClan have been awaiting her. May StarClan welcome you as a true medicine cat, Leaf Pool. <3

13 Brightheart mauled by dogs

Brightheart is one of my favorite characters in the series. I HATE those dogs. They KILLED Swiftpaw! Swiftpaw didn't even get a full life. He died when they weren't even aprinteces! He wanted to be a aprintce so bad that they got the idea to try kill a dog. He sacrificed his life saving brightpaw from a dog. I wish he never died and at least be an aprintce! I mean, it was so sad! I'm listening to titanium right now. PERFECT timing!

I hate the dogs for this, it made me even more of a cat person. Cloudtail's devotion to her is so cute though, because you think of him as an arrogant, ignorant young warrior until you see his soft side for Brightheart.

14 Willowbreeze and Crookedstar's kits die of sickness

I think that Willowbreeze never gets enough of an honourable mention. She was sweet and completely selfless to Crookedstar and she truly loved him for who he was, she didn't care about his looks or whatever the other Clan cats thought. I think she was the real hero of his novella and her death was one of the saddest deaths of a she-cat in the whole series. :(

This is so horrible, Crookedstar has suffered so much just for his mate and kits to die. Then they kill Silverstream later, I mean what? Why?

I was heartbroken when I read this. Like, I could feel it shattering inside my chest.

15 Graystripe goes into Riverclan

I hate this, he should have stayed in Thunderclan and fought for the kits. He broke Fireheart's heart and caused himself a lot of grief too.

-I cried myself to sleep no joke! *Spoilers* When comes back it is just not the same.

Fireheart was so devastated and why did Graystripe have to Leave!? (I know why)

16 Snowfur dies and Bluefur has to tell Whitekit about it

NOOO I was tense the whole time, and I think I was on the brink of crying. This was so sad because Whitekit was like "Where is Snowfur? Is she hiding? Is she playing hide-and-seek?" And that just made Bluefur feel worse. And also he was like "I don't want your milk! I want Snowfur!" ;o; I've seen the animation about it and I just COULDn't OMG…

Bluestar does everything to avoid crushing this kit's heart until there is no choice. It is truly heartbreaking when something like this happens to a kit.

This is so sad! Snowfur's death and white kit being told about it was one of the saddest moments for me.

17 Snowfur's death

This was the saddest! She was my favorite! And I watched the youth video of her and I cried! Even reading the book! Poor Bluestar seeing her own sister get run over by a monster! Also Thistleclaw became bad after that! At least Snowfur is with her niece in StarClan which was Bluestar's kit that froze to death and Snowfur is also with her mom! And her mom is with her daughter and granddaughter! So we can at least look at the bright side of things!

Snowfur was angry and wanted to be a warrior again, she should have stopped at the thunderpath, the Shadowclan cats had already fled back to their own territory and there was no need to run out on to the thunderpath. Bluefur's refusal to accept her death afterwards is absolutely heartbreaking.

18 Hollyleaf's real death

she is kind of annoying because shes always like, "ohhh we let our leader die of greencough just because the warrior code says NOT to cross borders even to save like, half the cats in our clan that TOTALLY makes sense!" but I was still really sad when she died. that's one of the main reasons I hate hawkfrost and he didn't even die after (I think I have not read warriors in a bit so I can't really remember )

This made me cry a lot because Hollyleaf was my ultimate favorite character. I loved reading parts with Hollyleaf in it for no reason and it made me cry when she died. Especially when she forgives Leafpool, that was very heart-touching. I had a feeling of melancholy when she died! You are my one true favorite cat in the whole Warriors series, Hollyleaf!

19 Ivypool's birth

It's sad to see so many people hate on ivy pool, who loyally and bravely spied for Jayfeather and Lionblaze in the dark forest by risking her life. Sure, everyone thought she was a bit annoying when she was being rude to Dovewing(or paw) but in reality she isn't that bad. I don't have any comments about Ivypool's birth.

Idiotpool is the worst. She should have been killed the minute when she was born, since she's nothing but an idiotic disease.

Annoying ripoff from the other item of dovewings birth, instead of using this list to trash on characet you don't like can you use it for what it's meant for, ACTUAL sad moments, please?

20 Swiftpaw's death and Brightheart's mauling

#1 SADDEST DEATH! I was crying. Hard. Curse those dogs, curse Tigerstar, and don't curse Bluestar because she saved the clan from said dogs which makes me far less mad at her but still.

Brightheart is one of my favorite characters and I think Swiftpaw would have made a good warrior if Bluestar didn't go crazy and he hadn't died. (I still would have wanted Cloudtail and Brightheart together though)

21 Badgerfang's death

I almost cried at this.. Badgerfang should've still been a kit in the nursery.

I dare you to read this without crying.

I cried two times! This is 100% saddest warriors moment EVER!
It's sooo underestimated

22 Sandgorse's death

Sandgorse was a total jerk and abandoned his son because his son didn't want to be like him, if you ask me, he was just trying to take out his anger by rebelling and going into the tunnels that day. It was almost happy when he died for me, I was like 'that jerk is gone for good! YES'

The last thing they did together was fight. If that's not a sad death, I don't know what is.

Just the fact that Sandgorse never forgave Tallstar before he died.

23 Snowkit's death

I cried harder here than I did any other moment, just because of Brackenfur trying to save him and chasing the hawk even after it was gone. so sad.

I cried, it was so sad! I still get testy when I think about it too much

24 Jackdaw's Cry and Falling Feather kill each other
