Top 10 Best Warrior Cats

The Top Ten
1 Firestar Firestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He's the leader of ThunderClan after Bluestar. He's mates with Sandstorm and has 2 kits: Squirrelflight and Leafpool. He was formerly a kittypet named Rusty. Firestar is killed by fatal wounds by the spirit of Tigerstar and a falling tree
Firestar's personality seems to be very courageous and dedicated, he always dose things that he thinks are right, even if it went against the warrior code. Even if Firestar's ideas don't always work, his strength, courage, kindness, and loyalty leads him to be a strong built leader and point of view. Firestar's last words were “I will not die until the forest is safe from you" more.

He is the best. How many times has he died for his clan? He saved the forest from Scourge and lost a life for a ShadowClan kit! He is always loyal. I don't care what anyone thinks, he is the best and definitely deserved to be first on this list! Tell me one time he didn't do something for his clan or the forest? He might not have, but he is so loyal to the forest! And he got his lives from Lionheart, Spottedleaf, Bluestar, Runningwind, Yellowfang, Silverstream, Redtail, and I think Brindleface. There's one more, but I forget. He has done so much for his friends as well! He cares deeply about his clan and has so much faith in cats. It doesn't matter that he was born a kittypet. He also saved Sandstorm from falling into the gorge, like Bluestar and Whiteclaw. He had two amazing kits, Squirrelflight and Leafpool, and he has so much faith in Graystripe. He definitely deserved to be leader!

Firestar will always be the best cat. From a hero to a leader to an idol, Firestar simply isn't a cat that hurts others. He's one that makes everything better. All the cats annoyed him about being a kittypet, and what did he do? He became leader and saved all those ungrateful whisker faces. Firestar truly is the best warrior cat.

Firestar is the best cat in the series by far. He and Sandstorm are perfect together, and no one can change my mind about this. Even though he broke the warrior code, wasn't he doing it to keep all four Clans intact? He also defeated Tigerstar and Tigerstar's spirit. AND he has a family. There is no better cat in all of Warrior Cats. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

Firestar is a great character. On the internet, though, they make him out to be such a selfish cat who loves himself over everybody, and that is definitely not true. He is incredibly caring for his clanmates and even cats from other clans. He always tries to do the right thing and helps out as much as he can. He definitely deserved the prophecy in the first arc and the fourth arc too. He is the champion of all warrior cats and is the classic, the true classic. Reading the first arc will always remain a joyful memory for me.

2 Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She was one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She broke the code by being mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and having her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, and Mosskit. Stonefur and Mistyfoot live in RiverClan, while Mosskit died of hypothermia. She has a sister named Snowfur, a mother named Moonflower, and a father named Stormtail. Bluestar is a large, lean, blue-gray she-cat with thick, dense, long fur, a broad face, a broad head, silver hair tinged around her muzzle and tail, a torn ear, broad shoulders, a scar that parts the fur across her shoulders, a long, sleek tail, and piercing, round, wide, clear, brilliant, blue eyes.

Bluestar is one of many leaders who took in an apprentice - not just any apprentice, but Firestar himself. Near the end of her life, she lost her mind. However, that didn't stop her from sacrificing her life for Fireheart, one of the most beloved cats.

She is so amazing, even though she kind of lost her mind and faith in everything and everyone. But she never wanted anything bad for her clan, even before she lost her mind. She also saved her clan many times and made Firestar her Deputy. She loved her kits and tried to stop Graystripe from feeling the pain of leaving his kits. The kits would have grown up in ThunderClan if Graystripe had not been seized by grief over Silverstream. He handed them over because he couldn't resist. He went with RiverClan. He was gone, but at least she tried. Don't blame Bluestar. She really tried!

She was a brave cat, probably like a god from Warrior Cats. She started off as a sensible leader, but after Tigerclaw/Tigerstar proved to be a traitor, it broke her so badly that she then chose Fireheart/Firestar as her deputy. Whitestorm and Fireheart did their best. Whitestorm even blamed himself for her death, and her death was horrible. She showed up strong and brave when she saved Fireheart from the dogs. I miss her terribly. Go ahead, start hating her for no damn reason. It's not her fans' business.

When we first met her, she was a strong, noble leader. Then Tigerstar (then Tigerclaw) was exposed, which mentally damaged Bluestar. Shortly after, there was the fire, which worsened her mental state. She soon believed StarClan had betrayed them, and she was leading a Clan of traitors. Yet, when she died, she finally became the true Bluestar again. "You are the fire who will save the Clan," were her last words. It was so sad when she died.

3 Yellowfang Yellowfang was a ThunderClan medicine cat in the original series of Warriors. She initially was a medicine cat from ShadowClan, but she was banished by her son, Brokenstar. She was then found by Firestar, who was then Firepaw, and brought into ThunderClan. Her last words were "Thank you for bringing me to Thunderclan. Tell Bluestar I have always been grateful for the home she gave me. This is a good place to die. I only regret that I will miss watching you become what Starclan has destined you to be."

Yellowfang is like that nice, classic, original grandma but with so much more about her. She has always been one of my favorite characters. I think I like her because of her personality, mostly for her snappy retorts but with a heart of gold. She also trained Cinderpaw even after she had her accident. Some people don't like Yellowfang because she killed her son and call her a murderer. However, Brokenstar killed kits, blamed that on Yellowfang, exiled Yellowfang, killed loads of cats, and fought in the Great Battle on the evil side. I could go on forever. The point is, what would have happened if Yellowfang hadn't killed Brokenstar? Think about that.

Feather Frost of SkyClan

Yellowfang is also a classic. She is grumpy but caring and will always remain in my heart. I don't know what to say about her. She's just amazing and was always one of my favorite characters when I read the first arc. However, I feel like she lost the real Yellowfang in her after the first arc. For example, when she visited Jayfeather (Jaypaw at the time) in the third arc, she seemed a lot more grumpy than she was in the first arc. Maybe that's just because we only read about her interactions with Firestar in the first arc, and she acts differently around him because he feels like a son to her. But that's all my opinion.

Yellowfang, despite having origins from ShadowClan, gave all that up to be a medicine cat for ThunderClan. She was one of Firestar's mother figures, and she also trained Cinderpelt on how to be a medicine cat after the incident. Yellowfang also sacrificed her life for ThunderClan, showing her loyalty.

I cried when she died. She was my first favorite character. I will miss hearing her name in the books. Yellowfang for life. P.S. Best medicine cat in the world.

4 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.

Why is Jayfeather only fourth on the list? He should be like, 2nd or 3rd! He is probably the best medicine cat ThunderClan has ever had since Yellowfang. In fact, how is Yellowfang in front of Jayfeather? If Jayfeather hadn't been born, half of the warrior code wouldn't exist! There might not even have been clans if Jayfeather wasn't born, because he wouldn't have told the ancient cats to form the tribe. And no tribe means no ancient clans.

I absolutely, truly think Jayfeather is my favorite Warrior Cat. I even have clothes with him on them! I love his personality. It's so cool! He's just so sassy and moody. In some moments, he's just so sweet, like his moments with Halfmoon. Also, the fact that he is blind is such a mix-up. He is definitely one of the reasons I'm addicted to Warriors. Yes, out of 10, I would give him a 10. It was so sad when he died, though. I can't remember when I first read about his death, but I remember I nearly cried! Some people think he is overrated, but considering everything, I think his rating is worth it.

He's my favorite of the three. Hollyleaf disappeared for a really long time, and when she came back, she died in the next book. Meanwhile, Lionblaze is just - I don't know - I'm not a fan of him or his high-joking-around behavior while being a full-grown warrior. Jayfeather just has an interesting story while being half-clan and blaming himself because of Leafpool and Crowfeather. I don't mind his grumpiness because I'm kind of grumpy in real life too.

I really think he's one of the best Warrior Cats. It's just the way he acts that's really good. But he is really old, isn't he? So shouldn't he be dead by now? I really like him, though.

5 Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She is a small, fluffy, sleek and soft-furred, smoky dark gray she-cat with wide blue eyes. She started out as a Warrior apprentice, but was forced to train to be a medicine cat instead after a monster breaking her leg on the Thunderpath. She died saving Sorreltail and her newborn kits from badgers. She new of her death in advance, but accepted it. She was reincarnated as Cinderheart so she could accomplish her life-long dream of becoming a warrior and her spirit was released by Lionblaze, before the battle with the Darkforest

She is so amazing. She went through so many things! Having her legs broken, she must have been in so much pain and disappointment. She was hopeless at the start, but she got through it all! However, he was so sad she would never be a warrior, but she grew to be the best medicine cat ever. She didn't deserve to be hit, and stupid Tigerstar caused it! She got hit instead of Bluestar. Cinderpelt never gave up, even when she died saving Sorreltail's kits.

Cinderpelt had such a sad life, but she was always optimistic. She had a crush on Firestar from her apprentice days until her death but never let that get in her way. Her leg got run over, which was the worst thing ever, especially because she had so many dreams that were crushed in one second by damn Tigerstar! Anyway, she still mentored Leafpool, which must have been the hardest thing ever, as she was Firestar and Sandstorm's daughter. She couldn't correctly interpret omens, as that wasn't what StarClan meant for her to do. She's so reminiscent of many Warriors fans, and she's just the best!

Cinderpelt is definitely one of the best Warrior Cats. She tried her hardest to save Silverstream's life but was always haunted by her failure. She tried her hardest to be the best medicine cat she could be. It doesn't matter that she didn't have the same sensitivity to StarClan as other medicine cats did. What matters is that she tried.

When we first met Cinderpelt, she was the apprentice of Firestar (then Fireheart). Then the Thunderpath incident occurred. When she recovered, they found she could never be a warrior. She then became the apprentice of Yellowfang, taking her place when she died. She was always a friend of Firestar. Much later, she sacrificed herself. She then got a new life as Cinderheart the warrior. I love her story!

6 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.

Hollyleaf is truly the best warrior cat. Her heart lies with ThunderClan, though she was lied to by Leafpool and Squirrelflight, as well as the rest of her siblings. I think she deserves much better. All the supposedly 'bad' things she's done were for a good reason. She died saving a cat. Her loyalty truly lies in ThunderClan, and she came back for the battle. I haven't read the full book of Hollyleaf's story, though I'm getting close!

One of my favorite characters is Hollyleaf! I loved how she would always stick to the warrior code, and she was so loyal to ThunderClan - until Ashfur ruined it and she found out that Squirrelflight and Brambleclaw weren't even her real parents! It was definitely hard for her, and she just had to get away from it all. I felt really bad for her and was incredibly sad when she went into the tunnels and they collapsed.

Hollyleaf was the best cat ever! I know she killed a cat, but that cat (Ashfur) tried to kill her and her littermates, and made Firestar lose a life. Also, why does no one say, "Oh my god, I can't believe Lionblaze killed Russetfur and made Harestar lose a life!"? All everyone says is, "Hollyleaf killed Ashfur. She is SOOOO evil!" She is the best and deserved so much better. I was so sad to see her die. She was truly an incredible cat! Rest in peace, Hollyleaf!

Hollyleaf was an interesting character, in my opinion. Sometimes I hear people say, "She killed her clanmate!" as an excuse for hating her, but... Does everyone remember that the cat tried to kill her, her littermates, and her adoptive mother? If you hate Hollyleaf for killing one cat, why don't you hate cats like Scourge (who is heavily overrated) or Ashfur himself (who successfully helped Hawkfrost take away one of Firestar's lives in the fox trap)?

Hollyleaf was a loyal warrior, but she was more loyal to her brothers than anyone else. She even helped a fox kit when it was trapped - a fox kit! That truly shows she wants to help with whatever she can.

Anyways, Hollyleaf is an amazing cat, and Ashfur deserved to die :D.

-Sweethoney of ThunderClan (He/they)

7 Graystripe Graystripe is a cat in a series Warrior Cats. He is named after the grey stripe that goes down his back. In the second book he falls in love with a cat named Silverstream. He is also friends with his childhood friend Firestar. He became mates with Millie who gave birth to their kits Blossomfall, Bumblestripe and Briarlight.

Graystripe has been one of my favorite characters since Into the Wild. He's loyal, goofy, funny, a good friend, and overall a great character. He definitely deserves to be so high on this list! I love Graystripe so much! I hope he's happy in StarClan!

"Call out if you need a hand. If she looks like she's going to have you, I'll sneak up behind her and whack her on the head with a stiff rabbit." "Well, I'm more lopsided than a one-legged badger. I think I'll have to settle for mice from now on. I'll just walk up and sit on them until they surrender." I miss these jokes! I don't know why Erin stopped with Graystripe's jokes! They are hilarious!

"I saw him only a few times, all of them with Silverstream or Fireheart. His gray pelt would brush the leaves and make a calming noise. The grief that engulfed him when he lost his mate... I felt such similar feelings long ago, and I knew comforting words. And so, I changed my pelt colors and spoke gently to him. For clarification, it hurts infinitely to have your pelt a different color for so long. But his smile was worth it."

-Echosplash, outcast of ThunderClan

Graystripe is absolutely one of the best Warrior Cats. Even though he loved Silverstream, he was a loyal, well-respected ThunderClan warrior. He was a loyal friend to Firestar and a great mate to Millie. Personally, I just love his personality.

8 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 like how clumsy Squirrelflight was as an apprentice. She would always get stuck in brambles and bushes, or just stuck in general. She'd fall into rivers, and she was always so clumsy and getting into trouble. I think that's what made her character interesting as an apprentice. However, when she became a warrior and wasn't as clumsy, I liked her because of her confidence and her personality. What also drew me to Squirrelflight a bit more was how both Brambleclaw and Ashfur were jealous of each other and were both hoping to win Squirrelflight over.

"Squirrelflight has enough energy to scorch every tree in the forest and a tongue that can slice through beech bark" - Ultimate Guide. Squirrelflight is so energetic that we're not surprised she is one of the few (or only) cats to live through the entire series and then become DEPUTY. You don't see that every day. - Shadow and Thunder Studios

I don't know what to say. She is a great deputy to Bramblestar, a great mother, and a wise yet spiteful warrior. She was a funny and goofy apprentice, always getting stuck in brambles and bushes. She also went on the journey to the sun-drown place.

Squirrelflight is my FAVORITE warrior cat. She is feisty, passionate, and brave. She always does what she thinks is right, even when others, including her own mate Bramblestar, think she is wrong. Even though Bramblestar isn't in his right mind after what happened (Ashfur took over his body), Squirrelflight helps Bramblestar out, leading ThunderClan the best she can.

9 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 as her new mentor. After earning her medicine cat name, Spottedleaf received a prophecy from StarClan that referred to the newcomer, Firepaw. The two felt something for each other, but they never revealed their true feelings as Spottedleaf was killed by Clawface, a ShadowClan warrior. She ascended to StarClan and particularly appeared in Fireheart's dreams. She then gave Fireheart a life more.

Spottedleaf is the best warrior. She was mistreated by Thistleclaw when she was an apprentice but still was so sweet to Bluestar and Featherwhisker. She even tried to love again with Firestar. She also gave up her opportunity to become a warrior but decided to be a medicine cat because of Thistleclaw's danger.

As an official medicine cat, she attempted to save Firepaw, at the time, from Longtail in battle. She also sacrificed her life to save Frostfur's kits. So, I think that is a reasonable explanation for Spottedleaf to be the best Warrior.

I'm so sad she had to die! I think that she and Firestar would have been great together. You could already tell by the details that they were meant to be. RIP.

Spottedleaf is probably my second favorite Warrior Cat. She was so pretty and kind! I was so sad when she died. I just wanted to stop reading, but when they introduced Yellowfang, whom I also kind of like, I decided to continue.

She shouldn't have died. She was so young and pretty. She is my second favorite, and it makes me so sad that Firestar never got to spend time in StarClan with her right before he died.

10 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.

Brambleclaw is my favorite character! He was really cute when he was an apprentice, and I adored him as Brambleclaw, a noble, just, and brave warrior. He displayed true leadership and courage on the journey to the sun-drown-place and played a significant role in settling into the new territory. He endured scorn and hardships merely because he was the son of Tigerstar, but he overcame that dark legacy to become an excellent deputy. The authors could have preserved his character and made him a great leader, but they chose to dismantle his personality instead. And what's the deal with Jessy? The REAL Brambleclaw, a noble warrior and caring mate, would NOT have acted that way! Also, when he became Bramblestar, he acted too much like Firestar and developed a short temper. Regardless, Brambleclaw will always remain in my heart as a loyal and courageous warrior, the noble leader of ThunderClan ⚡.

Bramblestar is absolutely one of the best Warrior Cats. He was a fair-minded leader and a great mate to Squirrelflight. He was also a good father to Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather.

This character has been through so much. First, he had a father who had a troubled childhood and turned into a villain. Second, his brother almost got him killed in the book Starlight. Third, his body was possessed, and the imposter turned out to be Ashfur! He had his doubts, understandably so. Fourth, he succumbed to an illness. Fifth, he did everything he could for his clan. Sixth, he helped kill Mudclaw, who wanted to kill Onewhisker. Seventh, he almost died and would have gone off to hunt with StarClan if it weren't for Hawkfrost. He remains my favorite Warrior Cats character, and I hope to see him again soon.

Honestly, I don't see how Spottedleaf is ahead of Bramblestar. Bramblestar literally went through cats in his clan doubting him just because of his appearance. Hawkfrost and Tigerstar manipulated him into believing he was becoming a good warrior. When Hawkfrost told him to kill Firestar, he did the right thing and chose to protect him, killing Hawkfrost in the process. In the Last Hope battle, he killed his half-brother again while Hawkfrost was trying to kill Ivypool.

The Contenders
11 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.

I saw their arguments sometimes from outside the camp after I was exiled. Dovewing's behavior towards her was... I could barely believe it. Not to mention her ungratefulness about her power. Ivypool may have trained in the Dark Forest, but so did Crookedstar, and cats who criticize him are mouse-brained. Ivypool also spied at the risk of her life, instead of just running away, and fought against them when the time came. I was in the shadows of the Dark Forest after losing my family and all respect for me, but I admired her for standing up for them. -Ivyflower, exiled ThunderClan cat

Ivypool is by far my favorite. She has to deal with so much, and Dovewing becomes a huge jerk when she finds out about the Dark Forest. Even after discovering that the Dark Forest is horrible, Ivypool is incredibly brave and goes there to spy. When the clans found out she was there to spy, they shunned her because she had been in the Dark Forest. She has no powers, unlike her overrated sister. (Dovewing, you are a great character. Just stating an opinion.) She was misled but remained very loyal to ThunderClan.

My favorite Warrior Cat in the Warrior Cat series! Ivypool is one of my favorite characters because she is different and imperfect. She was also fun to read about. When she started becoming jealous and hateful towards Dovepaw, it made me respect Hawkfrost when he kept persuading and manipulating her to join the Dark Forest, telling her she would be better than her sister. Apart from Crowfeather, she has amazing character development.

It was interesting to see her become angry and jealous of the one she loves. And when she risked her life to spy on the Dark Forest, it made her a better cat. Ivypool is a relatable character to us all.

Ivypool is a great character because she risked her life spying in the Dark Forest. Even though I prefer Dovewing, I can understand why Ivypool receives both love and hate. "She risked her life spying in the Dark Forest," one would say, but another would add, "But she's a self-centered brat who only cares about herself!" She only got into the Dark Forest because she felt incapable of doing things Dovewing could do. I dislike that she discriminates against Dovewing when she comes back with Tigerheart, but yelled at Tigerheart when he didn't go with her when Dovewing left for Twolegplace.

12 Feathertail Feathertail is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the book series called Warrior Cats. She's a slender, silver-tabby she-cat with sky-blue eyes and a plump tail. She is the daughter of Silverstream and Graystripe, Stormfur's sister and Crowfeather's first love interest. She used to be a Riverclan warrior before joining Starclan. She and her brother were one of the chosen cats to go the journey to the sun-drown place along with Brambleclaw, Tawnypelt, Squirrelpaw and Crowpaw in the second arc.

I've never cried over a fictional story, but there are times I come pretty close. I've read about her death 100 times, and it gets harder each time. I love her graphic novel, and I love her friendship with Sasha (RIP friendship). I love her father, I love her mother, I love her parents' love story, I love her brother, and I love her. I love how she was part of the journey in The New Prophecy. I love everything about her, and I miss her so much.

Feathertail was such an amazing character. Honestly, she fell in love with someone she could never be with, she saved a ton of cats at the cost of her life, and her personality is epic.

So, to those people who hate FeatherCrow, I need to explain this: Crowpaw was almost a warrior. In fact, he was already quite mature compared to Squirrelpaw (who was a couple of moons younger). If you ship BrambleFlight, then it makes no sense not to ship this, as the BrambleFlight age gap is bigger. Also, Feathertail helped Crowpaw become the cat he couldn't be before (and his death made him so emo, nothing wrong with that).

Then her ultimate sacrifice, when she had EVERYTHING, was beautiful but also had me in tears. She deserved so much better than she got. She's my 100% favorite character.

I absolutely love Feathertail's gentle and warm quality. I see so much of Silverstream in her, as well as Graystripe. Mating with Crowfeather wasn't much of a problem for me. She would always stand between rivalries and try to make peace. Though you might say she's kind of weak, she's not. You haven't seen her fight. Sacrificing herself to save her friends and the Tribe from Sharptooth was a brave thing to do. Although she is dead, her soft breath still haunts me today. I always think of her and make alliances with my other favorite book character in the Percy Jackson series - Bianca di Angelo. She's a great cat, much better than her mother Silverstream.

Feathertail died to protect her friends, the clans, and the Tribe cats from Sharptooth. She accepted her fate and grew up with a sad life. One of her mentors was killed, while her mother died giving birth to her. She distrusted Leopardstar, knowing she could have stopped Tigerclaw, and held her accountable for that. Oh, and her attitude at times is amazing!

13 Whitestorm Whitestorm is a fictional character in the Warriors novel series by Erin Hunter. He is a long-haired, sturdy, white tom with green eyes, and is known for his loyalty, wisdom, and calm demeanor. Whitestorm is a senior warrior of ThunderClan and has served as a mentor to many young apprentices. He is respected and admired by his clanmates for his courage in battle and his unwavering dedication to the warrior code. Throughout the series, Whitestorm plays a crucial role in many of ThunderClan's battles, often serving as a deputy or temporary leader when needed. He is a beloved character among fans of the series and is often remembered as one of the most honorable and respected warriors of ThunderClan. more.

Whitestorm was a noble deputy. I could have intervened when he died, but I was too terrified. I blame myself for the loss of a true deputy. Graystripe was a terrible cat - he was loyal to no Clan, not even his birth Clan. His relationship with Silverstream was against the warrior code, and he lacked the foresight to see how kits would affect their relationship. I watched them from the shadows, hating myself for bringing this cat into a possible position of leadership. Then Brambleclaw came along. Brackenfur would have made a much better deputy, but no. However, the current deputy - and her most probable choice for deputy - is better than nothing. -Dusk, a loner

Hm, where to start? Maybe we will start at the beginning. Yes, let's do that.

So, he was an ordinary kit: playful, sweet, innocent, but when tragedy struck, he didn't know what to do. He was a kit then and didn't understand. But he relied on his instincts and turned to his clan for support. He became a stunning warrior, possibly one of the best, not just fighting but other stuff. He was an inspiration and a role model to all the younger generation, and even Bluestar looked to him for advice sometimes.

While he wasn't part of a prophecy, he was a great cat and one that will forever be in my favorite's.

Feather Frost of Skyclan.

I think he's such a sweet, calm, and wise guy. I'd definitely go to him if I had a problem. He died loyally in the battle with BloodClan. He'll always be in my heart.

Oh my God. He is my 3rd favorite cat. He was the kindest, most loyal, and bravest cat. Whitestorm showed slight skepticism toward Firestar at first, but he wasn't hostile. When he knew Graystripe was meant to be deputy and he would have to die, he took his fate willingly and died a noble death for his Clan. If you think about it, his childhood wasn't amazing. His mom died early in his life, and Bluestar shunned him for a while. It was cute when he was all worried for Bluestar when she was going crazy.

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

Crookedstar was a RiverClan leader in the forest territories. He was born as Stormkit to Rainflower and Shellheart alongside his brother, Oakkit. Following an accident in which he broke his jaw, Stormkit was renamed Crookedkit at the request of Rainflower. She disowned him, leading to Crookedkit running away from the Clan. After returning, he was apprenticed as Crookedpaw to Cedarpelt. He was continually visited in his dreams by Mapleshade, who trained him and demanded he stay loyal to RiverClan above all else. more.

I had territory farther down the river and was taking a swim when I got caught in a sudden rapid. If I had been a more competent swimmer, I might have never distracted him, leading Rainflower and Shellheart to remain together and him becoming Stormstar, not Crookedstar. But what's done is done. The promise Mapleshade made him make - and her punishment for breaking it - was terrible and not his fault. He was a strong leader of RiverClan. -Ivy, loner

He deserves the spot he's at, but Tallstar should be higher than him. Crookedstar was not as good of a cat, but he was a wonderful leader for RiverClan. He made his father Shellheart, his mate Willowbreeze, and his most trusted medicine cat Brambleberry proud.

I definitely have a soft spot for him. In RiverClan, his life was ruined by SOMEONE who was EVIL, but nobody seems to care HOW HORRIBLE OF A PERSON SHE IS. *Ahem* I feel really bad for him. To be honest, some people change a lot when they become real. Like Onestar. I love Onewhisker but not Onestar. And a lot of other leaders too, not always in a bad way, but I just don't like when that happens. He and Tallstar are really cool for, you know, not doing that.

He suffered. He was lost. He didn't know what to do. Y'all say Mapleshade had nothing to do with killing his whole family, and it was just his bad luck. Please, she was there, faking friendship and steering him down a dark path. No one tried to help him. His mother hated him. He rose through it all, though. He fought to be respected. If anyone earned the prefix star, it was him. It wasn't handed to him - unlike Firestar. He took his rightful place.

When he and his family were gone, I mourned as if one of my closest friends had died. Even if he was fictional, I knew him better than anyone in real life. Because that's what a character is supposed to do: give us an escape from reality.

15 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 When he was around in Thunderclan as an apprentice he was traumatized as a he witnessed the Thunderclan warrior, Tigerclaw murder the Thunderclan deputy, Redtail. To keep him safe from Tigerclaw, his best friends Firepaw and Graypaw sent him away to become a loner and live with a cat named Barley at the barn, who he spent the rest of his life with.

I never used to like him, but he grew on me. He had a lot of trauma at a young age, but he grew up and became an amazing cat. Also, Raven x Barley is finally canon, so he's one of the only confirmed gay cats in the series, which I also love about him. His death was so sad. I cried when I read it. I love Ravenpaw!

Ravenpaw never got to be a warrior, but he will forever be a hero! He revealed the truth about Redtail's death and had to be hidden from Tigerclaw. Later, he helped in the battle against Scourge, risking his life for his old clan. He died helping to protect SkyClan, even though he knew his time was coming to an end.

I saw him sneak back just to see Redtail's death. I wanted to defend him, but a RiverClan warrior cannot interfere in ThunderClan business. The least I could do was visit him when he lived with Barley and congratulate him for telling the truth. Tigerclaw could have killed him. I wish he could have stayed in ThunderClan, but I know he had to leave. - Pikesplash of RiverClan.

He is such a classic! I want to read Ravenpaw's Farewell so badly, but I have to read Dawn of the Clans first. I don't know why I like him so much. He is just really cool.

16 Crowfeather

He was a great character with so much conflict. I loved him and Feathertail so much. As for Leafpool... nah. I like Leafpool, and I like Crowfeather, but them together was awful. It was so unrealistic. I actually don't hate Nightcloud. She loved Crowfeather in the beginning and then realized he didn't love her back. She was also a single mom to Breezepelt. I loved Crowfeather's Trial. He and Breezepelt finally got along, and he became a great father!

Crowfeather is amazing! He lost so much. I can't blame him for being bitter. And he's not that bad of a father. He was just never given a chance. Everyone thinks he treated Nightcloud and Breezepelt horribly, but they're just as big of jerks to him, and they made up in Crowfeather's Trial. He and Nightcloud are even friends now! Harestar has been leader for long enough. It's time for Crowstar!

Crowfeather may have been snappy in his apprenticeship, but he matured greatly when he became a warrior. Every cat in his life taught him something, even Nightcloud.

Crowfeather is one of the greatest developed characters in all of the Warrior Cats series. Even though he matured, he never lost his attitude and what made him different from all of his Clanmates.

His relationship with Feathertail was very cute (also, it's not pedophilia because Crowfeather was very close to becoming a warrior when the journey started). His and Leafpool's relationship was sudden and short, but still sweet.

While I don't like Nightcloud and his relationship, I do think they both taught each other something. And maybe he didn't give Breezepelt much attention, that's because he was afraid of losing him in the way he lost Feathertail and (in a way) Leafpool.

He's truly a good and loyal warrior to WindClan, and his Super Edition was well deserved and well written.


Crowfeather is hands (I mean paws) down one of the best Warrior cats EVER! He grows and learns so much over the series. He is brave, loving, and deep down, he is kind. He uses his moodiness and grouchiness as a defense because every time he loves, his heart bursts.

He is brave and still returns back to his clan after he leaves with Leafpool. He faces his consequences and still would die for his clan. He has suffered so much and stayed strong. Crowfeather, you are so brave and tough, yet he still loves.

I can see him in Jayfeather so much, and that is what I love: how two cats can be the same and grow differently. He learns so much from his mistakes and becomes a better cat but is still himself. He learns to embrace how things are, and grow from mistakes and pain.

He had it really hard and still does, but he doesn't give up. Feathertail gave hope to him, and he cherished that. He tried so hard, and so many cats just pushed him aside as a shallow cat. He was really ...more

17 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'm not sure why I like Silverstream. Maybe it's because she is a really pretty cat and she always helped Graystripe. Yes, she broke the warrior code by falling in love with Graystripe, but I really like her personality. I was very sad when she died.

She was so pretty, feisty, and loved Graystripe very much. I don't understand why people hate her. Now Millie, on the other hand... :)

What a good cat. She has had a rough life, given that her mother and siblings died when she was a kit. Now, she is a StarClan warrior, and her legacy lives on through her daughter. She was a wonderful cat, and I loved the moment she gave her heart to Graystripe. Their relationship was strong, and it was heartbreaking when she passed away. I wish she could have lived to see her two wonderful kits grow up. She will always be Graystripe's first love, and I firmly believe they should be together, while Millie should be the one to go. Millie was a poor mother who played favorites with her kits. I hope that when Graystripe joins StarClan, they will reunite.

Silverstream is not a spoiled brat. Her love with Graystripe was genuine. They loved each other so much. To top it off, her kits are my favorite characters. It was sad to see her die in the 3rd book.

18 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.

Mapleshade is my favorite villain. Some people don't like Mapleshade because she is evil, but it's not really her fault that she became like that. She fell in love with a warrior from another clan, which got her into trouble, and then she was exiled. In fact, she was rejected three times! I don't think it's fair for her, and she also suffered the loss of her kits. So, I think she didn't deserve her suffering. - Roseshade

I like her. I want them to make something happen to her, like she becomes mortal again, but she was a better villain in Mapleshade's Vengeance.

Mapleshade is a powerful warrior and a girl boss. People say, "She doesn't deserve anything," but she does! 1. She got exiled from her clan because of her love. 2. She found a mate, Appledusk. 3. Appledusk betrayed her. 4. She had kits. 5. Her kits drowned. 6. Appledusk cheated on her. 7. She couldn't be with her kits when she died.

She had such a harsh life. Most people who read Warriors think that she is evil and all, but she actually is one of the best cats with the most courage in all of the Clans. She faced so many hardships in her life! She had her kits drowned in the river after being exiled out of the Clans, only for being in love with a warrior from another Clan!

Plenty of other cats did it, too… How come only she was punished? And then wasn't allowed in StarClan? It wasn't her fault that she turned bitter after all of her kits died. I hope that one day she will be able to actually meet her kits… She gave her life for their vengeance. Doesn't that deserve anything?

19 Brackenfur

He was such a sweet cat, always good to Sorreltail. He was a warrior for himself and for Cinderpelt, and was always kind to her and loyal to his Clan. He should have been deputy instead of Brambleclaw. I have no more to say. -Kitepaw of ThunderClan.

To me, Brackenfur seemed like a really good-looking cat. He was sweet and always wanted to know if anything was wrong. I hated that he had to live with the fact that *SPOILERS* Seedpaw and Sorreltail had passed. He seemed broken afterward, but he knew he had to stay strong for the sake of his clan. He always cared about his sister and was worried about her leg. Even though the books don't say this, I believe he would have done anything to have Cinderpelt train with him as an apprentice. I love you, Brackenfur!

Brackenfur was so sweet! I hated it when Sorreltail passed, and he was devastated. He was a wonderful mate to Sorreltail, loyal and supportive to Fireheart/Star, and very understanding when Graystripe quit his apprenticeship. Speaking of apprentices, how sweet and responsible he was! And he was so awesome to Cinderpelt, saying he would be a warrior for both of them. I love Brackenfur!

He was a loyal warrior, completely. I feel he would have made a much better deputy than Brambleclaw, but oh well. He wasn't an ambitious cat, so he didn't mind. He and Sorreltail had the cutest relationship too!

20 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.

You have to feel bad for him. I mean, look at it this way: Imagine you're getting bullied just because of your size. Then your siblings tell you that you'll get thrown in the river, so you run away. You run to the forest, and then an apprentice nearly kills you. A nearby warrior does NOTHING to help you when she clearly could, until you are nearly killed. If that wouldn't make you pretty pissed, then I don't know what will. But it would make me pretty mad at the cat who nearly killed me that day.

He is evil, and I like evil. Evil rocks. Go Scourge. Scourge is a very tough kitten who never backs down from a challenge. He's a great liar and can even fight dogs using his shadow. Scourge is also the Warriors series' best quote-maker, like his I had to have ice in my veins quote. Overall, Scourge is my number one favorite because he is evil!

Scourge was misunderstood. He was bullied by his siblings, abandoned by his father, and nearly killed by Tigerpaw. However, he decided he could do better than all of them. He even helped save the Clans by killing Tigerstar, a fact people often overlook. He built a clan of his own, and I find it sad that Firestar killed him just for wanting a place where his clan could live.

Deep inside, he's a sweet and loving cat. He just doesn't show it. If he hadn't killed anyone, he might have been the sweetest warrior cat. Additionally, he's not bad luck just because he's a black cat.

21 Tallstar Tallstar is a large, black-and-white tom with a very long, thin, black tail with a white tail-tip, powerful shoulders, amber eyes, strong paws, short, thick fur, and a white muzzle and paws.

I was a young warrior when he left. His father's open hatred of him was terrible. His kithood wasn't joyful, but he was a great cat, saving Sparrow's life instead of letting him die. I snuck out to follow him. It wasn't my mission, but I wanted to be his mate. Finding out Jake would always be his heart cat was difficult, but I found another cat. - Gorseleap of WindClan.

This cat… have you noticed how all the WindClan super editions are just brilliant? (I say this when Onestar's Confession hasn't come out yet.) But either way, Tallstar's Revenge is impressive for Warriors. I hardly need to summarize this masterpiece, but he is also a blatantly good character in the main series. JakexTallstar should be canon. They are literal puzzle pieces.

Note: This is all my opinion, and while I would love to hear yours, I would not like to be hated on. I am also a human being, if that's okay.

Tallstar... where to start. I love you! You have such a complicated past! You are so loyal, fun to read about, and so smart! I'm glad you became leader!

Tallstar actually has an interesting character arc, more than I can say for some cats. Tallstar's Revenge has an intriguing plot. We'd never heard of tunnelers before, and they add depth to WindClan life and are well-developed. After Sandgorse's death, emotions and convictions overcome Tallstar, and he sets out to kill a cat he is sure caused his father's death. Wow. This is honestly a good book. Also, who doesn't love Jake x Tallstar?

22 Leafpool Leafpool is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She's the daughter of Firestar and Sandstorm, sister of Squirrelflight, mate of Crowfeather, and mother of Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf

I like Leafpool. But when she went with Crowfeather, I was like, NO. NO WAY. It makes no sense! She talked to him three times before he confessed his love for her. Two of those times he was yelling at her, and the other time was a short, one-minute conversation. It was so unrealistic and a bad excuse to bring Holly, Lion, and Jay into the world. I love Crowfeather, but...I like Leafpool. She's cool and smart. I think Crowfeather didn't deserve her. Crowfeather was a jerk to her, and their relationship was WAY too quick.

She is so amazing, and I like her. Also, she never needed to be a warrior. She is the best medicine cat ever. She has faced sadness in her life as well, losing Cinderpelt, leaving the forest, and Squirrelflight leaving.

Leafpool is amazing. I can't believe all the hate she gets. After all, she helped every single clan and only ever made one mishap in her life.

Leafpool is just so amazing. She was a great mother and excelled at her role as a medicine cat. She was a wonderful apprentice to Cinderpelt and a great mate to Crowfeather. I'll never stop loving this cat. Even though she can be a little bit sassy sometimes, she is a great cat.

23 Sandstorm

Sandstorm is the feisty, independent she-cat who is Firestar's REAL MATE in the books. Spottedleaf was just a sweet-smelling, pretty weirdo, while Sandstorm stood by Firestar for a long time and gave birth to his kits and had grandkits with him. Then she died, which was VERY sad. But then Firestar and Sandstorm are together in StarClan! - Shadow and Thunder Studios

I love how Sandstorm was so sassy as an apprentice, and to be honest, I didn't like her as an apprentice. But when she became a warrior and started getting along with Fireheart, I started liking her. She was always so wise. Even though she and Firestar had their arguments, almost all warrior cat couples do! So, I really like her.

She has a lot of attitude. She dies really weirdly. She jumps over a fence after getting attacked by a fox and refuses to let the medicine cat clean it. Then it gets infected, and she dies in her sleep. This reminds me of the time I shut a door on my toes and refused to let my parents clean it. It also got infected. At least I only lost a toe.

Sandstorm deserves her own book. I would prefer a super edition, but a lot of the story has already been told, and I want something special for her. I don't want a book focused on her relationship with Firestar, but maybe a book that takes place when Fireheart and Graystripe earned their warrior names before her and Dustpaw did. Maybe it can show us the growth in her character as she learned to respect and later love Firestar, who at first she didn't like.

She's an amazing mother and cares for her kits a lot. She's really great, and I wish there was more of her.


24 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, who strips all his lives away. And then by Firestar, who moves on to StarClan when they meet again during the Great Battle II. Tigerstar is a large, scarred, dark tabby tom with black stripes, bright amber eyes, a scar over his nose, and a nick in his ear. He has long claws, a broad head, massive shoulders, and a long tail.

Tigerstar may have been one of the worst cats in all the books (for the most part), but he is also very important. Without him, the fire that will save the clan wouldn't exist, Rusty would not be accepted by the clan, and Graystripe's kits would die at birth because Cinderpelt would become a warrior, not a med cat. Worst of all, the cats who find a new home for the clans would not exist, and the clan would all die! Tigerstar deserves respect!

Ok, I get it, he is a terrible villain. But you kind of have to feel bad for him. His dad leaves to become a fat kittypet. His mentor is evil, and both of his sisters die. Oh dear. I think all of his good personality traits come out in his kits, not in Mothwing, Hawkfrost, or Tadpole, but in Brambleclaw and Tawnypelt. I still hate him for killing Firestar and ruining a lot of cats' lives, but I'm just saying... he has had a bad past.

Tigerheart is SO amazing! I love his personality, his humor, his protectiveness, his caring, his courage, and his overall wholeness. He tried not to let Tigerstar's legacy get to him. He certainly made mistakes, but that is what is so beautiful about him! He has good comebacks, is smart, and strong.

He sticks to Dovewing, and after hearing that she's gone missing, goes after her. He also saved ShadowClan. They were always heading down a dark path, and Tigerheart made them a clan again. He made them strong, and he made them care. I have a whole sense of who he is, and he's such a well-developed cat. He is amazing!

He is my favorite cat. I love him. It wasn't his fault he was evil, and deep down he is a good cat. Stop saying he's pointless because he's not. He's a big part of the plot! Also, stop saying he's stupid. He is a genius! I just don't get how Scourge has so many fangirls and Tigerstar has barely any. Also, he didn't kill Lionheart! Lionheart died in a battle against ShadowClan. Dislike this comment, go ahead, it's my opinion. I can have mine just like you have yours.

25 Lionblaze Lionblaze is a character in the Warrior Cats series. He is part of The Three, along with Jayfeather and Dovewing, and has the power of being undefeated in battle. However, the power if removed from him after the Clans are saved from the Dark Forest. Lionblaze is a broad-shouldered, muscular, bright, golden tabby tom with amber eyes the color of the sun. He has thick fur, thick fluff ringing around his neck, a nicked ear, and massive, pale paws with fur that bunches at his claws.

In my opinion, Lionblaze underwent the most development during Omen of the Stars. In the first two books, he's fine and even develops a budding relationship with Cinderheart. However, in the next book, he tells Cinderheart about the prophecy to alleviate her worries about him getting hurt. This makes her feel like she's not good enough for him. At this point, Lionblaze begins to question whether being part of the Three is worth it. He wishes numerous times to be a normal cat so he can be with Cinderheart. This struggle makes him more relatable as he tries to balance his prophetic duties with a normal cat life. It's one of my favorite character arcs and adds depth to Lionblaze's character.

I love Lionblaze, but later in the books, I believe he became very cocky and headstrong. After his power disappeared in Bramblestar's Storm, I think he would've done anything to get it back. For instance, he complained about stepping on a thorn. Come on, suck it up! Cats experience this every day and suffer more severe wounds. Are you going to complain just because you stepped on a thorn? In the end, I know he adjusted to being normal, and he remains one of my favorite cats.

Lionblaze was good to Cinderheart, even going so far as to tell her about his power, much like Dovewing. Both had to keep this a secret. Contrary to what some commenters have said, it's not his fault that he has this power. Some people dislike him for killing Russetfur, but those who hate him for that act like he killed her without reason. In reality, he killed Russetfur accidentally and felt guilty afterward. However, he did save his leader. What would you do in that situation? Would you leave your leader to die or save a cat that isn't part of your Clan and would attack you?

Really? The definition of a Gary-Stu is a character who is perfect. Lionblaze isn't perfect. He nearly began a half-clan relationship with Heathertail. He eventually lost his powers. He's a little bit whiny (but isn't every cat?). He trained with Tigerstar for a period of time. And most of all, he killed Russetfur. Gary-Stus are perfect. They don't start half-clan relationships. They don't lose their powers. They aren't the least bit whiny. They always do what is right. And they most certainly do not kill people.

Lionblaze didn't feel the need to hide his powers from his true love. Honestly, Lionblaze is the most likable of the three. He didn't kill someone (on purpose) for a secret he was going to reveal later. He didn't whine about being different. He didn't hide in the tunnels for months, leading people to consider him dead. And he certainly didn't fuss over his mentor. Plus, he's the most loyal and affectionate of mates and fathers. In conclusion, Lionblaze is the most ...more
