Top 10 Things that Shouldn't Have Happened in Warrior Cats

Things in the Warrior Cats universe would have been better without these events!
The Top Ten
1 Twolegs destroying the forest

I like the old territories better than the lake territories. Since this happened, we had to spend our time reading four books that basically covered the entire journey there.

Makes me hate humans more than I already do. But we're here to change things, so I ain't gonna be depressing no more.

I agree. Fourtrees was amazing to me, but they were slowly dying where they lived forever. If they still lived there, the series would be dead completely. Firestar, the main character, makes the right choice to leave the forest. Besides, Storm and Brook forever!

2 Thunderclan turning Mapleshade out

I don't really hold it against ThunderClan to exile Mapleshade. She lied to them and betrayed them by mating with the murderer of two of their clanmates and using the victims' names for her own selfish gain to protect herself.

However, they had no right to exile the kits. They're completely innocent. They can't control who their parents are. They're just as much victims of Mapleshade's lie as any other ThunderClan cat, thinking their father was dead when he was actually alive.

Exile Mapleshade, not the kits.

3 Firestar loving Spottedleaf

Haha. I'm glad some people agree with me. Spottedleaf is too dramatic, and Firestar is too good for her. Sandstorm goes much better with him. I love Sandstorm. This should say "Spottedleaf being born." They don't work out. Most people in the world are gonna hate me for this.

Erin Hunter, why the heck would this happen? Now my sister doesn't like Sandstorm. We see you, Erin. We see you. I watch you in your sleep. I watch you when you make Ashfur the worst villain ever. Begone, Spottedleaf!

It's like a middle school boy in love with a college kid that everyone (but me) likes. Then she notices he likes her and calls him at random times even when he is married and has kids, to flirt with him and try to steal him away.

4 Snowkit dying just to move Speckletail to the elders' den

Talk about ruined character potential. It would have been amazing to see the development of a deaf cat adapting to Clan life. If the Erins have the ability to write a blind character, they can write a deaf character. It just takes a bit of research and planning. Reducing a deaf kit's death as a way to move forward a subplot of a very minor character is lazy and possibly offensive.

Snowkit could have been so much more than just a deaf kit. He would have made for an interesting cat in the books! If any deaf people read it, it would encourage them that Snowkit survived. Snowkit was wasted potential. We could have seen him become a great medicine cat or even a warrior! Ugh. The Erins are infamous for throwing away good characters.

5 Hollyleaf dying

I honestly loved Hollyleaf! In my opinion, she was a great cat! I was so sad to see her die. I would rather have let Ivypool die than Hollyleaf (sorry to Ivypool lovers, but she's my fave character). I was devastated when Hollyleaf came back just to die in the last book!

Ugh, Hollyleaf was honestly an honorable cat that did almost nothing for her clan except save Ivypool. Although, lots of things wouldn't have happened without her. She is so overrated, and I hate her. I'm glad she died.

She did many bad things, but I loved her so much! She deserved to live again, with her friends, brothers, mother, and just her clan in general!

6 Mapleshade's kits being thrown out

I could understand exiling Mapleshade. She did something wrong and was strong enough to survive on her own. But exiling three innocent kits? That would be the equivalent of arresting the children of a criminal even if the kids did nothing wrong!

It's not the kits' fault that their mother broke the warrior code. Oakstar made a terrible decision by exiling the kits. If Oakstar had kept the kits in ThunderClan, they wouldn't have drowned in the river. They could have been an asset to ThunderClan.

7 Hollyleaf announcing the truth at the gathering

Hollyleaf should have kept her mouth shut and not said anything. Even if she had decided to blurt out the truth, it shouldn't have been at the Gathering. Instead, she should have confronted Squirrelflight and Leafpool and tried to understand why they lied in the first place. Her devotion to the Warrior Code was out of character and very hypocritical, as she had broken the code countless times in the past.

I just read Sunrise, and I can't think about this. She destroyed Leafpool and Squirrelflight's lives. They both loved those kits, and I hate Hollyleaf for this. Why at a gathering?

Also, why the hell did she kill Ashfur then? Leafpool lost her kits, her mate, and her role as a medicine cat. Squirrelflight lost her adopted kits and mate because of stupid, horrible Hollyleaf.

8 Silverstream dying

Poor Graystripe! His heart broke when his mate died. But this wasn't just a mate dying. It was a mate dying in a forbidden relationship that was the strongest love in the series while having kits.

She should've lived, then there wouldn't be that horrible Millie, and Blossomfall wouldn't be in the Dark Forest.

I agree it's sad. She died giving birth to her new kits. A life for two lives.

9 Feathertail dying
10 Firestar dying

I agree that Firestar needs to die for the story to move on, but for Thor's sake, could they just make a character die of old age, peacefully, in his sleep, with his family with him? Is that too much to ask?

Actually, I like that this happened. It was sad at first, but now I realize that he's a player. I liked him as a warrior more than a leader. Plus, Bramblestar would never be leader, and I love him!

He was a good character, but I think he was better as a warrior. Also, it seemed like he had been leader for ages. We needed someone new.

The Contenders
11 Dovewing being born

I used to think Dovewing was okay, but now I hate her for joining ShadowClan. She could have stayed in ThunderClan. What is it with every Warrior series having some sort of forbidden love? Dovewing is really just a Mary Sue. She was the "perfect sister." If she hadn't fallen in love with Tigerheart/star, I think I would have still enjoyed her character.

Seriously, did they have to make every series about some couple running off together, then coming back to the clans or breaking the warrior code to love? The new series with Shadowkit is not interesting to read. And what is up with the new warriors' names: Flipkit, Pouncekit, Shadowkit? Seriously? I think they are running out of names, but they could name them like they used to. These new names are really strange. What other names are they going to come up with, Preykit?

I think the Erins are just trying to continue the series. I understand that lots of people enjoy the Warriors series, but there needs to be some sort of end to it. You can't keep continuing it for decades. Otherwise, people will get bored of reading the books.

12 Yellowfang continuing to meeting Raggedstar

Yellowfang should have just left Raggedstar and focused on being a medicine cat. In StarClan, she is very judgmental of those who have broken the code, especially Leafpool when she almost ran away with Crowfeather and had kits. She is also very hypocritical when she did the same thing.

I hate Raggedstar. Not just because he was her mate, but seriously, what did Yellowfang see in him? He was mean to her when she decided her destiny was healing, he had mood swings, and they probably would not have been good mates. I'll just say I was not sad when he died. If Brokenstar wasn't born, so many kits wouldn't have died.

13 SkyClan getting kicked out

This was so stupid! Both times they could have just adjusted their borders a little. In AVOS, they didn't even care for SkyClan, even after StarClan specifically told the Clans that they needed to stay. All every Clan cared about was what the other Clans did. The first time, they didn't even think about it, just cast them out and didn't care.

Bluestar's reasoning is even stupider. "There are only four trees." So now you're letting trees decide the fate of the Clans? If your Clan was struggling during leaf-bare, and there were only 20 trees surrounding your camp but 24 cats, would you kick four of them out?

14 Briarlight dying

Bellyache is not the way to kill off a noble, persistent, eager warrior. It doesn't show the true Briarlight. Plus, she was a nice character, always excited for her duties. She should have gone out as Briarlight as possible, not as helpless and miserable as possible!

Erins, if you really wanted Briarlight to die, you should have made her die a much nobler death. I think you should have made her die trying to save someone else instead of making her die of a stupid sickness. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it was greencough.

15 A tree falling on the ThunderClan camp

That was sad! Longtail shouldn't have died, and Briarlight shouldn't have been paralyzed! She teaches a lot of courage, though. Is this the tree we are talking about?

One death, one injury, and a destroyed camp. A lot of destruction for one little tree!

I honestly think that they just did this to get rid of Longtail.

16 Ivypool being born

Except for giving birth to Bristlefrost, her whole story is only rebellious alone. It just seems the writers wanted Dovewing to have a sibling by her side.

17 Mapleshade going to the Dark Forest

Alright. Why didn't StarClan say, "Hey, guys. She had a pretty terrible life, and everyone in the living world hates her. Let's give her another chance, maybe?" Blackstar, while he got his nine lives, got visions of the past to assure him that he was a good cat.

I think if StarClan did something like that for Mapleshade, she could have ended up in StarClan and been a better cat. Mapleshade was never bad, just broken, and StarClan did nothing to help her.
-Birdcreek's Opinion :)

She was not a good cat, and she deserved to go there, but she was an interesting character. I think she should have been able to redeem herself in some way. She wasn't evil at first, but she definitely didn't deserve to go to StarClan initially.

18 Tigerstar bringing BloodClan into the forest

If it didn't happen, then Tigerstar would have lived, though.

Ok, Tigerstar was thinking like a total idiot. I mean, he could have lived.

That was his biggest mistake and downfall.

19 Cinderpelt loving Firestar

In my eyes, Cinderpelt always looked up to Firestar, and there was never any romance in it. It is very out of character for her to suddenly have romantic feelings for him.

I know you may not see this, but whoever said she didn't love Firestar is wrong. On the last page of River of Fire, A Vision of Shadows, she admits it to Alderheart, son of Squirrelflight and Bramblestar, after he nearly fell in love with a kittypet named Velvet. She said she gave up hope for him ever loving her because of her duty as a medicine cat.

20 Snowkit being taken away

When even the blind ones have some kind of use, why not the deaf ones? They just let him die because they did not know what to do with him.

This is right. Snowkit shouldn't have been taken away.

Make a decision, Erin Hunter! A kit gets taken away, then lives with some kittypet. I'm pointing at you, Princess! Princess, in her mind: Oh, I'm going to lie that Firestar is my brother to Snowkit and live on! Snowkit then feels betrayed and trains with some evil lady cat called Mapleshade. He trained with Brackenfur in the dark. Then Ashfur helped Hawkfrost set up some silly fox trap. Then the stupid fire starts.

Snowtuft (Snowkit) helps make the stupid fire. Then Snowtuft eventually wants to kill Firestar. Wow, Erin Hunter. Let's get back to my story. Sol works with Snowtuft. Ashfur gets slaughtered by a stone and Hollyleaf. Snowtuft tried to kill Jayfeather. Hollyleaf killed Snowtuft, and everyone's happy. Nope, Snowtuft died and went to StarClan and Dark Forest's border. He saw Firestar, Ferncloud, Speckletail, and... who was it? Oh, Ashfur.

21 Using the name Maggottail

At first, he was Dashkit and Dashpaw, but the front part of his tail got nipped off by a fox during a dare. Later on, his tail got infected with maggots. He asked his leader to be named Maggottail.

Ma'am, that's just disrespectful to your child. Please cease these ruthless actions immediately and stop bullying him! What did he do to you? Exist?

Imagine being called Maggotkit. A mother must hate her kit if she gave it that name!
Mother: Oh! I hate kits, I'm just going to call you Maggotkit!
Maggotkit: *starts crying*
Mother: Oh Maggotkit! Stop yelling! *walks off to get deathberries*

22 Creating cats with impossible genes

Yeah! Fernsong, kin of Firestar and Ivypool (who I love, and if I ever find out who put her birth as something that shouldn't have happened...!) also kin of Firestar, had Bristlefrost (and the other two)!

I honestly don't get why people make such a fuss over genetics. It's a fictional children's book, people! You don't complain about Scar's coloring being impossible in The Lion King, so why should Warrior Cats have to be different?

23 Feathertail and Crowpaw falling in love

Feathertail shouldn't have loved Crowfeather.

24 Whitestorm dying

He would make Great and wise leader. I was expecting him to become leader After Firestar. Whitestar would be the best leader any clan could have wish for

Whitestorm was my fave character. I hate how he dies! I hate that he dies period!

25 Ivypool having kits

Just... NO! She's a strong, independent woman. I'm okay with her having a mate, but KITTENS?! Do ALL female cats in ThunderClan need to make babies?

I actually like seeing a "bad girl" become someone who has a heart for someone...
