Top Ten Things About Warrior Cats You Probably Didn't Know

The Top Ten
1 Cat leaders have 10 lives not 9

Look, everyone is saying they only have nine, but think about it (Just an example here): Fireheart got his lives from nine different cats; Lionheart, Redtail, Silverstream, Runningwind, Brindleface, Swiftpaw, Yellowfang, Spottedleaf, and Bluestar. He already had one life, and recieved nine. Do the math, people! 9 + 1 = 10. Therefore, cat leaders have 10 lives.

This is not true. During a leader's nine lives ceremony, their original life gets stripped away. They are dead until they get their first leader life.

No they only have 9, because they are required to be striped of their previous life in order to receive the new 9.

They only have 9, because if you count the deaths until they join StarClan it's only 9.

2 Windclan is the closest to Starclan

That's because WindClan cats live on the open moor, so the cats are "closer" to the stars because they aren't protected by trees. I honestly love these little traits about the Clans

All the clans are closest to Starclan. They all regularly meet them. Just because they sleep under Silverpelt and are closest to the Moonstone/pool doesn't mean anything.

I think this is wrong usually the mountains are closest to starclan

I don't believe this.

3 Skyclan was the first clan

This has nothing to do with this but Firestar is in love with his step aunt! Sandstorms father is Redtail and his sister is Spottedleaf. It makes Spottedleaf his step aunt! (I think) Also Graystripes parents are littermates.

Some people say that Windclan was first because it was named first, but Skyclan was the first to start working like a clan.

Everyone knows this...

4 Bloodclan is not a Clan

It is a group of rouges

It is a group of rogues.

I already knew this! They're a group of rogues

- Spiritstar Of LightningClan

5 Warriors live in clans and tribes

Ahem!? I'm pretty sure every living soul whose ever read even one fricken page of any book knows this!

- Spiritstar Of LightningClan

Wow! I didn't know that!

6 There's a thousand cats

There's probably more. Maybe one thousand in ThunderClan alone, but if you take all the Clans there's probably a few thousand because there's like eighty at a time in each Clan.

If I had to count all the cats in the world I would die of hunger because it would take to long.

There's probably more than that to be honest. If you count starclan

7 They're making a Warriors movie

I will like a warriors movie and a wings of fire movie! that will be a lot better than reading and making up the seance! won't it be cool to see a movie that is full of fighting and action!?

Yes they are its original release date was for 2020 but now were looking more along the lines of late 2024 I can 99.9% guarantee that we will have a warriors movie

I really like Warriors, it's my favorite book series, but I don't know about a movie...

I didn't know that they were making a movie about the series! I would go see it!

8 Erin Hunter works harder on this series than any other

Erin's is 3people

9 Sandstorm cheated on her final assessment

WAIT SHE DID!?!? Jk, I knew that too (Yes, I'm the same person who commented on Leopardstar's crush on Tigerstar and said I knew them all) She brought back a different cat's prey. She was probably sick of waiting to become a warrior.

She didn't have an assessment—I thought Bluestar thought that she fought bravely in one of the battles and made her a warrior. Where is the PROOF?

Yep! She brought back someone else's prey!

I hope whitestorm didn't find out.

10 Leopardstar joined TigerClan because she was in love with him

No, she wasn't. She just considered the possiblity of being mates with him after she joined tigerclan. She thought that joining tigerclan would make tigerclan stronger because tigerstar manipulated her. No because she was in love with him. Please read leopardstars honor.

I litteraly knew half the stuff on this list lol, and this is one of them. It's kind of obvious, I mean, if you read the field guides one of them had Leopardstar's perspective and she says right in it that she admires his bravery, strength, and pretty much everything else. That's basically the exact same as stating that she has a crush on him.

Loved Tigerstar. It makes sense because Leopardstar was shocked at his betrayal, and even then stayed loyal to him.

Yes, she wanted to have kits with him. But she loved Whiteclaw and when he died, she decided to never take a mate again.

The Contenders
11 Squirrelflight has one white paw in reference to Scourge

Yes, Scourge is Firestar's half brother because Jake is their father. So, Squirrelflight got her paw from Scourge. Firestar often shudders as he sees her paw.

Scourge is Firestar's half brother, so ya... that makes sense. My friend said something about that.

That is interesting

I already knew this! Its kinda cool if you think about it

- Spiritstar Of LightningClan

12 Fireheart was named after Lionheart

No, he was named after both in memory of their loyalty and Bluestar was closer to them than a lot of other cats!

Firestar and Scourge are half brothers.

no he was named after Oakheart, because he reminded Bluestar of Oakheart and obviously Bluestar still loves Oakheart because their mates in Starclan.

Yes and no.He was named after the wisdom of lionheart and the braveness of Bluestar's mate, oakheart

13 Spottedleaf was trying to draw Fireheart(star) into StarClan so far that he couldn't return to ThunderClan in one of Firestar's dreams

Yea I can see Spottedleaf doing this, I sorta understand too she was a medicine cat so she couldn't have a mate and now she is in Starclan she can ( I think) and she wants Rusty ( I have absolute no respect for firestar so I call him Rusty) to be her mate, and that's why she always acts so cuddly toward him, I also remember her saying, " Starclan is calling you."

That is soooo creepy. I can definitely belive that tho. I knew Spottedleaf was a crazy stalker since she came in his dreams. I mean, she basically tried to kill him when you think about it. Sandstorm was right to be horrified in SkyClan's destiny.

Spottedleaf isn't that evil.

Oh wow. She's a creepy snoop.

14 Cinderpelt loved Fireheart, but he didn't catch on

He's so stupid sometimes! Poor Cinderpelt. She deserves to have Fireheart (star) as her mate. I hate Sandstorm and that medicine cats can't have mates. Though the Hunters say they might change that rule in The Broken Code.

This is the saddest fact ever! So true though! I wonder if she loved him when she was a kit, or when she was his apprentice, or after she became a medicine cat.

I agree but the whole story would have gotten ruined if Cinderpelt broke the Warrior Code and stole Firestar from Sandstorm!

Ow, I already knew this, but every time I read this it just makes me wonder if Firestar could have payed more attention to Cinderpelt's feelings :c
Plus, I believe this is the best example of a not corresponded love in all Warrior Cats' series
With pain, me :v

15 Tigerclaw was going to be called Hammerclaw

Yep, but at the last second someone said, "how would a cat know what a hammer is?" So they all looked at each other and went, "Yikes!" So they changed it.

True. It was on the brink of being published when someone wondered out loud if cats would know what a hammer was.

This name is a bit funny for me. When I hear Hammerclaw, I start laughing not like crazy, but it's just funny for me

Ya until Erin decided that a cat would not know what a hammer is.

16 Scourge hated the dog teeth in his collar but put up with it because it made him look fierce

Aw, that's truly something I would do tho. I thought it might be uncomfortable and hard to fight with a bunch of giant teeth in your necklace, but that just makeshim sound like an adorable kitten again when I heard this

This is true, in The Rise Of Scourge he thought that the dog tooth would help him get his collar off but it just got stuck there, and Scourge actually said "Stupid collar". So yeah, its true

It choked him and scathed his throat and made it hard to swallow.

17 Thunderclan is like America

Yeah that makes sense. I think Riverclan would be Britain. Both are surrounded by water and fought with America over territory. Well it wasn't exactly that. I think Canada would be Windclan. As for Shadowclan...Russia maybe or Germany? A place that seems really bad to America but isn't as bad as they think.

Yas I was thinking the same thing. And SkyClan is Russia, and RiverClan is Japan... I don't know, that's just my associations. Oh, and the Kin is like a dystopian version of the US if Joseph McCarthy somehow managed to become the dictator.
Which would never happen.
Okay, I'm weird.

I don't hear about a Trump in Warriors either, but I just imagined Firestar with Trump hair and almost died laughing.

If Berrynose and the imposter merged and became leader both, than it's be like America. They'd be exact like Trump.

18 Darkstripe (Male!) was in love with Tigerstar

I already knew this! Know what? I practically know every single thing on this list its irritating

- Spiritstar Of LightningClan

Why is this such a big deal? Ravenpaw and Barley have been confirmed as a canon ship, so what's wrong with Darkstripe loving Tigerstar? You said "Male!" like it was so bad. I respect LGBTQ+ people because why shouldn't I? Who they chose to date/marry do anything with doesn't affect my life at all! What's the matter with Darkstripe being gay? I don't understand :|

I respect LGBTQ+ people, but I think Darkstripe wasn't in love with him. Tigerstar was Darkstripe's former mentor and had more experience than him, so Darkstripe just followed him because he is a coward

I mean, it was obvious. There's not enough openly gay characters in WC's tho. At first I though Darkstripe had some creepy obsession and he was a bit stalker-like, but Tigerstar shouldn't have rejected him!

19 Brokenstar has kittypet blood

Yea duh who didn't know that, his dad I Raggedstar who mom mated a rouge cat named Hal who is technically a kittypet. so yea!

Yes, he does. Raggedstar is his father. Raggedstar's father is Hal, a kittypet!

I hate that he hates other kitty pets.

His grandfather was a kittypet.

20 Blackstar was a polydactyl cat

Only Bright Guardian Akira fans will understand this, but I really wish Blackstar's Toes wasn't rejected, I would've loved to read that novella! Now we have Blackfoot's Reckoning instead, boring!

Link with info, please? I don't mean to be mean, but I really want to know how you got this.

Polydactyl cats have one extra toe from when they were born. Yes this is cool. Sincerely, Fox the Rogue

I really love polydactyl cats. They are amazing!

21 Bluestar was originally going to be Moonstar

Where are you getting your information?

Yes, she was. I don't know why she wasn't.

22 When Scourge kills Tigerstar, he strikes 9 major organs causing him to lose more than 1 life

Yeah, but I thought leaders had 10 lives, according to your first fact?

Scourge hit the brain, heart, stomach, liver, kidneys, lungs, etc.

23 Bluestar and Whitestorm are related

True. Bluestar's sister was Snowfur, who is the mother of Whitestorm. That makes Bluestar Whitestorm's aunt

Yes. Bluefur's sister, Snowfur, had Whitestorm. So Whitestorm is Bluestar's nephew.

Bluestar is Whitestorm's aunt.

It states it in the book

24 Half of the Warrior cats have colorations that are impossible

I KNOW! And, how Jayfeather looks is, like, impossible! How do a black cat and a brown cat have a grey kit? I understand Hollyleaf and Lionblaze, but Jayfeather is impossible! And, also, how is Leafpool brown and white with hazel eyes? Her mom was pale ginger and her dad was bright ginger! It makes NO SENSE! Also, Bluestar's kit, Mosskit, how did she look like that? Oakheart didn't have any white and neither did Bluestar. IT DOES NOT WORK, ERINS!
- Robincall of ThunderClan

Yes, I know. I wonder how gray cats (Skystar & Storm) make a ginger kit (Thunderstar) (and that is why I imagine Storm as a dilute torbie cat, two gray cats (Shellheart & Rainflower) make brown kits (Crookedstar & Oakheart). There many more examples but I am lazy to list them.

Leafpool has hazel eyes because of Nutmeg, Firestar's mother. And Jayfeather's fur is gray because of Ashfoot, who was mother of Crowfeather

25 Originally, Moonflower was going to be Duskflower

Why not? Erins...You should have gone with this. Moon is a forbidden prefix.

Says who, when, and why?
