Best Things About the Warrior Cat Mapleshade

Mapleshade is an amazing and misunderstood character. Yes, she killed Spottedleaf for the second time, ruined Crookedstar's life, killed a lot of Riverclan cats. But there's more to her than that.
The Top Ten
She persevered

Did she give up when she lost her kits and mate, and even her whole Clan? No, she got revenge on Ravenwing (who sucks) and Appledusk (who also sucks even more), and so many others. I wish she didn't eat those death berries, as hard as her life was, but she accomplished a lot in her time.

Why do you guys keep saying she killed herself? It's stated in the wiki and in the books that she died from "Blood loss from neck wound" Not being mean, just stating facts.

Instead of sulking (she did at first) and killing herself (she did in the end, though) she persevered to get her revenge. I have yet to get mine.

She is definitely my favourite warrior, no questions asked. Say Mapleshade if u agee

She's clever

Mapleshade's seriously clever! I mean, she manipulated Crookedstar and made him think that all those deaths were his fault! Yes, she did prey on a cat that didn't deserve it, but Mapleshade lost everything! She was nearly leader of her Clan, then she fell in love - you don't choose who you fall in love with! Then, she's forced to tell ThunderClan her kits' father, although it is said that the father of kits is allowed to be kept secret, and then she gets exiled! Right then! Yellowfang, Raggedstar, Bluestar, Oakheart, Greystripe, Silverstream, Leafpool and Crowfeather should have been exiled from their Clans as well! Yellowfang and Raggedstar should have had something even worse happen to them, and Leafpool and Crowfeather... well they should have been killed judging by Mapleshade's treatment! There's a lot more I'd like to say about Mapleshade, but, yeah.

She manipulated Crookedkit (later Crookedstar) into thinking that keeping her promise wouldn't come with a cost. And organising the attack on Riverclan with the rogues, to kill Reedshine and Appledusk? Smart thinking. Bravo, Mapleshade.

Lots of people can relate to her

Like the awesome quote: "Can you imagine what that feels like? To be rejected twice? To be a loner when all you tried to do was love? "

At least one in their lives, people have been cheated on, depressed, and wanting revenge. And here's an awesome character they can relate to!

Oh, yes! Who doesn't love killing multiple cats, holding an apprentice hostage who had done nothing wrong and blaming others for their own mistakes? Damn...You can really relate to her! I mean, apparently murder is logic?

Yeah. Who hasn't watched their kits drown in a river and then sworn revenge on three cats because they had hallucinations of their dead kits telling them to?

Before she became a serial killer, that is.

She died a martyr

Before she ate deathberries (yew berries) and died, she promised herself that she would get revenge. She later did. She died for what she believed in: that she would get revenge on the clans for casting her out. And on star clan, for sending her to the Dark Forest.

Mapleshade didn't eat deathberries did she? I thought she was killed by Appledusks apprentice

My fave warrior cat

Shes my favorite warrior cat

She lost everything and still didn't give up

Mapleshade went through so much but she never gave up. She always wanted revenge and I can totally relate to that

She lost her clan, her mate, her kits, and still got revenge. Go Mapleshade!

She also created the best quote in warrior history


She has the same name as many places

I once looked her up on Google Maps, and I found a recording studio, Mapleshade Lane, Mapleshade Primary School. There's even a town in New Jersey called Maple Shade. Close enough.

Yo, Wolftail is that real?

She's a character in the Warriors series

One of the best book series ever! If only she had an appearance in The Enemy series, or even Chronicles of Ancient Darkness...

Warriors is life, and every character is a part of it.

She's underrated

I'm my opinion, she's one of the most misunderstood characters in the series. I mean, she was such a loyal warrior and then she was forced into telling the clan who her mate was even though you can do that. She was punished for lying about Birchface being the father of her kits but she never actually said so; everyone just assumed that Birchface was their father. And then she was kicked out of her clan and rejected by her own kin, even though it's against the warrior code to do that to a queen and her kits. And then she was rejected AGAIN by her mate, Appledusk, and the rest of Riverclan. They have no simpathy for a queen who just lost her kits. And Appledusk goes completely unpunished?!?! So I really don't blame her for killing those cats, especially Appledusk and Frecklewish. I mean, Frecklewish just stood there and watched as those kits drowned. And then she went to the dark forest when she died, never to see her kits again. I cried for hours after her death. She was only trying to ...more

Just have a deeper look into her life story. There's more to her than that she ruined Crookedstar's life and killed Spottedleaf for the second time. I mean, come on people, seriously.

I honestly think she is a tad bit overrated.
I mean, You guys treat her like a goddess.

She's the best! Favourite cat!

She's manipulative

My parents say I'm manipulative. Hmm, so that's another reason why I'm like a human Mapleshade.

I can get anyone to do whatever I want even if it means to rip apart the thing I love most

Your parents call you manipulative..? I feel bad. °^°

She avenged her kits so they could go to Starclan

Mapleshade could have gone to StarClan, but instead she gave up her place in StarClan so her kits could go there. Has any other Warrior cat done that? Nope.

So her favourite cat

Three words: Best mom ever!

Yes. I love mapleshade and I hate reedshine

The Contenders
She is one of the few villains who has a reason to be a villain

Where's her sympathy Starclan? You let Ashfur go to Starclan and NOT her?! It was unfair in the first place to lose all her kits to a STUPID flood.

There’s no reason to be a villain. There’s nothing wrong with being a villain, but nothing can justify her actions, nor anyone’s. I’m not saying that you aren’t allowed to like her, no, I’m saying that you shouldn’t keep...defending...the way she acted. :p

Agree. She even is the best villain because she did what she wanted. She murderd 3 cats that destroyed her life.

This is totally true

She was awesome

I feel so sorrry for her! and so awesome

Mapleshade is awesome she is so misunderstood I feel bad on top of every thing els she is being called a traitor it is so unfair

She's mysterious

Her life and feelings are a mystery.

She was willing to fight for what she believed in and to make it happen
She fought her life and death

She is STILL in the dark forest

She should not be in the dark forest it should be Appledusk there not mapleshade I love her she is so cooll

She's the best warrior cat


She is smart
She killed Spottedleaf

Why did she help/urge Clawface kill Spottedleaf!? This is an outrage! I love Spottedleaf! I hate Mapleshade! DIE, MAPLESHADE, DIE!

I hate spotty leaf. I'm glad she killed her

She was heartbroken

Ravenwing is the worst,frecklewish go die in a pit,appledusk go to the dark forest.reedshine should have been slaughtered she is a mary sue and is a jerk to flash a grin at mapleshade while comforting appledusk like,"He's mine loser! "i hate them!

Apple Dusk and Freckle wish can go die in a hole Reed shine can lose her kits and be slaughtered Raven Wing is such a jerk and wouldn't have mercy on innocent kits

She cared about her kits
She was cheated on

*Fluff appleass whatever his name was! She didn't deserve that!

She Was Betrayed
She still cares for her kits

The Erins revealed that whenever Mapleshade has the chance,she will visit her kits at the border of Starclan.I think that she is to be monitored by Frecklewish,Ravenwing,Birchface and Appledusk in case she tries to cross the border and murder a cat,but this sentence just shows how much she still loves her kits,even if her soul is corrupted by shadow and ice.

A caring mother who is amazing

She is still a caring mother even though she is in the dark Forest, it should be appledusk in the dark Forest not Maple Shade

She is a good villain

I dislike her because she is evil and manipulated Crookedstar but when it comes to villains she is one of the best.

She's my favourite cat! And what's that horrible comment doing under me!?
