Top 10 Warrior Cats Villains

The Top Ten
1 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,... read more

He is so mean but he did lose his siblings. His mentor, Thistleclaw, taught him all about evil, and I think his mother or father died or rejected him, though I'm not sure. So, he is very evil but also his upbringing affected his thinking.

Wow, Tigerstar is the best villain in Warrior Cats ever. He was once a tiny kit who almost got eaten by a fox. ShadowClan warriors defeated the fox, which caused Tigerkit to grow into Tigerpaw. His evil mentor, Thistleclaw, trained Tigerpaw. When Tigerpaw and Bluefur met Tiny (Scourge), Tigerpaw attacked Tiny and almost killed him. Tiny wanted revenge.

(Lots of other terrible things done) Tigerstar killed Redtail and caused the death of Runningwind, Brindleface, Bluestar, and many others. He would have killed Fireheart/star and almost destroyed ShadowClan and RiverClan. Even when he died at the hands of Scourge (he caused his own death), he wanted to kill Firestar, his chief enemy. He trained Hawkfrost and Brambleclaw/star in dreams with the hope of them killing Firestar. When his plan failed, he trained even more cats in their dreams.

In the battle with the Dark Forest, Tigerstar caused the deaths of so many cats. In the final confrontation between Tigerstar and Firestar, Firestar killed Tigerstar but also got killed himself, or did he? Anyways, Tigerstar is the most interesting villain ever. Just because he wanted revenge on Firestar, he caused many cats' deaths. But he did become evil before Rusty/Firestar came along because he killed Redtail. However, Tigerstar should be shown some respect. If he wasn't born, then Rusty wouldn't have been welcomed into the Clan. If he wasn't born, Squirrelflight, Cloudtail, Dovewing, and many others wouldn't be in the Clans. Most importantly, if he wasn't born, then the books wouldn't exist!

-Sageheart of ShadowClan

2 Brokenstar Brokenstar is a villain character from the Warrior Cats series. Brokenstar is a matted, dark brown tabby tom with a broad, flat face, a bent tail, and orange eyes. Brokenstar was a former Shadowclan leader and a member of the Dark Forest. His mother is Yellowfang and his father is Raggedstar.

He is so evil because:

1. He killed young kittens in battle.
2. He killed his father.
3. The WindClan were driven out of the forest by force.
4. Even after he died, he brutally educated the Dark Forest apprentices.
5. In the Battle of the Dark Forest, he led the Dark Forest and tried to destroy the Clans.

Having committed these evil acts, in a sense, he may be a more cruel and tremendous villain than Tigerstar.

He's evil, and I think it's mostly because of his parents or his foster mother, Lizardstripe. I don't think Yellowfang did that much. And the things he's done are of the murderer type.

Okay, did he really need to murder kits? I mean, he is just crazy as well, wait no, he's mad! I mean, what? Did he think it was a good idea? Of course not, villains don't care about others.

Things he's done: first, he kills his father to become leader. Second, he makes kits train too early and sends them into battle. Third, he kills kits so his mother Yellowfang can be kicked out. Fourth, all the kits he's killed. That's it. He's just dumb! - Sparkwind of Thunderclan

3 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw is a villain in the Warrior Cats series. Thistleclaw is a gray-and-white tabby tom with spiky fur and amber eyes

Listen, Thistle haters. You just hate him because of the way Blue felt about him. How would you feel if your mate died and her sister, who was always annoying to you, was the only one with her, then takes away his kit? What did he have left in life? Only ambition. He had to have it, or else he would feel ultimate pain.

And really, people, how many cats are arrogant in the series? A lot! And Mudclaw was ambitious too. Yet somehow, people feel sorry for Mudclaw. And then, when he is happy in StarClan with his son and mate, he gets chased out and loses them forever. How much would you like Bluestar now? She isn't an angel, you know.

4 Hawkfrost Hawkfrost is a villain character from the Warriors series. Hawkfrost is a dark brown tabby tom with a snow-white underbelly and ice-blue eyes. Hawkfrost was a former Riverclan warrior and member of the Dark Forest. Hawkfrost tried to kill Firestar with a fox trap but was killed by his brother Brambleclaw... read more

I know all the Hollyleaf fans are going to run towards me with fire and pitchforks, but I'm going to be honest. I was glad to have Hollyleaf dead. I just don't like her. But I was sad when Hawkfrost died. He is my favorite villain in ANY book.

Hmm. Let's see what he did. He tried to kill Firestar so Brambleclaw could be leader, plotted with Mudclaw from Wind Clan, killed Hollyleaf, and used his sister as a medicine cat to make up a sign to get rid of Stormfur and Brook. Wow. He tried his best to follow in his father's footsteps and succeeded. I will always like you, Hawkfrost.

5 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,... read more

Yes, Scourge is quite overrated, but I still like him. He's an amazing villain, and I do enjoy that he was in the Warrior Cats series. I have absolutely no hate towards him at all. As I said, he is very overrated, but I love him.

When I first read the book with the battle against him, I was amazed.

Whoever says that Scourge is a bad character, they are totally wrong. He is the best villain anyone could ask for! He should be the main villain in the whole series.

He is better than Tigerstar (he even killed Tigerstar), and he even leads a clan whose name is literally BloodClan! Oh, poor TigerClan. In my opinion, Tigerstar is horrible at being the main villain, sorry to Tigerstar fans.

6 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,... read more

Mapleshade was torn apart by grief, yet she also showed signs of being manipulative even before her kits died. She let Frecklewish and Oakstar believe they were Birchface's in order to protect her reputation and would have continued had it not been for Ravenwing's intervention.

She was twisted by her grief and blamed everyone else for their suffering (let's be honest, everyone was at fault), and her book was entertaining to read. -Songshadow of TimberClan

Oh come on! Why is Tigerstar first? You guys are forgetting the point! Mapleshade was the one who turned Tigerstar evil. She manipulated Tigerstar, turning him evil. Mapleshade also kind of made Tigerstar fight Scourge so viciously, making Scourge determined to defeat Tigerstar and creating another villain.

Tigerstar visited Hawkfrost in his dreams, and Tigerstar was already a villain. And what do some villains do? They make more cats evil. Then what? Boom! Another villain named Hawkfrost.

Now, about Thistleclaw. Grief. What did Mapleshade feel? Grief. The books never say anything about finding him, but this is what I think happened. Mapleshade relates to Thistleclaw, so she might have found him in the Dark Forest. Mapleshade lost her kits and mate, and Thistleclaw lost his mate too, and technically lost his kit because he never bonded with Whitekit, calling him weak like his mother. He lost his kit's love just like Mapleshade lost her kits and the love of her life.

Brokenstar isn't a big villain. He was bullied and not liked by his foster mother. In my opinion, he's just a cat with a sad story and partly a villain. He didn't do as much as Mapleshade. She did many bad things and turned many cats evil. That's why Mapleshade is my queen! All hail Mapleshade, Queen of Evil!

7 Sol

I love Sol! At least, I did before he tried to convince Leafpool's kits to take over the forest. Then he became another Tigerstar. Sol was unique before the last 10 chapters of "Sunrise". He was the way I play "Plague Inc.": start harmless until I've infected everyone, then strike! Sol could have harmed nobody until he was an influence, then bend their judgments to make his life better.

Still, if not for the turnaround, I'd wish he wasn't on the list, because I agree largely with what he says. "Why should dead cats control the living? Why can't all cats learn to use herbs? Why can't you choose your own destiny?" And he's completely right. He was so interesting because he was in my head too. I knew he was a villain because I spoil things for myself, but I believed him and what he said.

He also raised the questions of "Is he really a villain?" He was best as a villain who caused destruction to others around him, but used his hypnotic voice to keep cats bending over backwards for him. He was so unique and intriguing before the "rule the forest" turnaround, and it makes me separate them as two entities: Sol, the cat who rules with words, keeping the rulers under his influence believe they are still rulers, and Tigersol, who looks like Sol but has the motivations of Tigerstar, and no body count.

8 Ashfur Ashfur is a character created by Erin Hunter for the book series named Warrior Cats. Ashfur is a muscular pale gray tom with darker flecks and dark blue eyes. He has short, thick fur, and a torn ear.

Oh, come on! He:

1. Killed Bramblestar and took over his body.
2. Was obsessed with Squirrelflight so much that he escaped from StarClan to go to the living clans to be with her and take revenge on her for choosing Bramblestar instead of him.
3. Gave fake visions to Shadowsight and ruined his life.
4. Blocked StarClan's connection with the living clans.
5. Made the Dark Forest shrink.
6. Used Bramblestar's body to exile cats or make them do ridiculous tasks, suggesting that the orders were from StarClan.
7. Took revenge on Squirrelflight by hatching a super evil plan to destroy everything she loved - which was totally twisted.
8. Took over the minds of spirit cats and forced them to kill their old clanmates.

Evil, am I right?

9 Darkstripe

Traitor! Mean to Firestar when he arrived. Knows about Tigerstar's plan to destroy ThunderClan and doesn't do anything. Takes Bramblestar and Tawnypelt to meet Tigerstar. Tries to take Bramblestar and Tawnypelt to ShadowClan while the dogs attack.

Meets up with Blackstar and feeds Sorreltail deathberries. Exiled and happily tries to kill Stonefur. Blackfoot helps him.

Volunteers eagerly to kill Feathertail and Stormfur. Is ashamed when Tigerstar refuses, claiming that he was so nearly beaten by a prisoner. He's ashamed by that. When a cat is going to kill Firestar, he throws the tortoiseshell she-cat off and told Firestar that he wouldn't let him get killed by her, and that he wanted to kill him.

Attacks with the Dark Forest in The Last Hope.

10 Clawface

Honestly, I don't care for him. He was only killing Spottedleaf either out of a leader's orders, or because he was under Brokenstar's influence. And, if he was following orders, that's fine. Killing, yes, it's a crime, but according to the code, a leader's word is law, and you have to follow it.

Besides, he never came back and murdered even more cats, right? I just think he might've been following orders, which is fine. End of story.

I personally feel terrible for him. He didn't have a chance for character redemption, unlike Blackstar, and is the only villain I'd consider "good". He's not a horrible cat, unlike Brokenstar.

He just did everything his leader did. He was actually really good in "Tigerclaw's Fury" and "Yellowfang's Secret".

The Contenders
11 Bone

I don't really like Bone. However, we can say he's very strong to have lived a life eating garbage and fighting other cats and dogs for territory. He was killed by apprentices, but there were a lot of them. And when everybody jumps on you, what do you do? You fall down on the ground, while the apprentices try to kill you. Yes, apprentices. It's a bit embarrassing, but Bone was strong enough to kill Whitestorm, a senior warrior.

His death was one of the most amusing moments in the books, and I'm glad he's dead, as he killed Whitestorm. I can vividly imagine the apprentices charging him, while Firestar simply watched in disbelief.

When Bone died, the apprentices chanted, "Bone is dead, bone is dead, bone is dead." Before that, one of the apprentices, Sootpaw (or Sootfur), who happened to be Bone's son, said, "Hello! My name is Sootpaw, you killed my father, prepare to die!" (I know he was still a kit, but I couldn't remember his name, so I went with Sootfur/paw).

12 Sharptooth

I didn't particularly like Feathertail, but really? I mean, come on! I totally thought she was going to be with Crowpaw (who is/was one of my favorites)! Stupid Sharptooth! You crappy lion without a mane! The only reason I would put him in the series is to battle Scourge, because that would be an epic battle.

I love you Sharptooth, for murdering the Tribe cats. I hate you Sharptooth, for indirectly murdering Feathertail.

Tigerstar wouldn't stand a second against Sharptooth. Vote Sharptooth for number one! He deserves it.

13 Hawkheart Hawkheart is a stone-gray tom with flecks of darker brown fur, yellow eyes, and graying whiskers.

Hawkheart was a WindClan medicine cat under Heatherstar’s leadership in the forest territories. He originally served as a warrior before becoming a medicine cat. He was said to have an unusually... read more

He was so cruel! He killed poor Moonflower, and he's a medicine cat, for StarClan's sake. He didn't even care! I feel bad for Barkface, who got a terrible mentor. He is such a villain!

Ok, I know, I know he is not necessarily a real villain. But he is evil. I think anyone who kills a cat is evil. He didn't even have a good reason. It was just because she was stealing his herbs, which the whole clan was trying to do. What are you going to do now, Hawkheart, kill all of ThunderClan?

Also, I know you could argue that Gray Wing killed Fox, Tall Shadow killed Fircone, Jackdaw's Cry, and Falling Feather both killed each other, and all of that. But they weren't trying to kill each other. They were just either trying to defend themselves or someone else. I hate how Hawkheart kills Moonflower right in front of poor Bluestar/Bluepaw, and he didn't even care.

14 Darktail

It just makes me shudder whenever Darktail shows up in the books. He's obviously the first terrifying villain in the whole entire universe of Warriors. And he's just entirely brutal. Just look at how he half-blinded Rain.

I actually threw up when Darktail did that. Then Darktail ripped Rain's throat out. I was 100 percent terrified and almost stopped reading the book, just because of this fox-dung excuse for a warrior.

Then he killed Needletail, who was my absolute favorite cat. It's a good thing Needletail got vengeance. Anyway, Darktail is the spookiest cat that ever lived. If I wanted to choose between killing Tigerstar when he first lived or Darktail, then I would choose Darktail.

- Dovestar of FrostClan

15 Breezepelt

Okay. He tried to kill his half-littermates, being happy when Hollyleaf died. Then, he steals Heathertail, (even though I like Lionblaze and Cinderpelt better). He even tries to kill a pregnant queen!

He was the worst, and he didn't deserve to be a father or have a mate. - Lavenderflight of WindClan

If I had to describe Diseasepelt in five words, this is what they would be: Arrogant piece of fox dung. Done. Don't even try to make me change my mind by saying, "Oh, it's Crowfeather's fault!" or "Oh, it's all Crowfeather!" Because it's NOT!

Diseasepelt thinks it's okay to try and kill his half-siblings and a pregnant she-cat and betray his Clan all because his father hates him. What sense does that make? Killing Crowfeather would make sense, but Hollyleaf? Jayfeather, Lionblaze, Poppyfrost? Not okay, Diseasepelt. Third worst cat in Warriors.

16 Blackstar

Guys, are characters not allowed to develop over time? When he killed Stonefur, he was acting under orders, and I seriously doubt Tigerstar would have cared if Blackfoot had objections. He probably would have been killed himself if he had objected.

If you're going to hate him for killing a cat, then you may as well hate Firestar or Graystripe too, because they've killed cats. You cannot ignore the fact that when Blackstar became leader of ShadowClan, they had given up all hope. He made them great again. He made them strong again.

He wasn't the first cat to be manipulated by Sol, nor the last. Don't forget, the clans still thought Sol had predicted the eclipse, something not even StarClan had foreseen. It was poor judgement to let him into ShadowClan, but Blackstar realized his mistakes, and he helped to drive Sol out upon realizing the clans had been tricked. He certainly isn't evil, and he belongs in StarClan.

17 Willie

He betrayed Ravenpaw and Barley, which is so sad. At first, I thought he was going to be a nice character and live with Ravenpaw and Barley. And guess what? He's a part of BloodClan.

He killed those poor baby chicks, made Ravenpaw and Barley leave the farm, took advantage of their generosity, and was just a rude, traitorous character after all.

He set the Twolegs against Barley and Ravenpaw when they were trying to help! He brought some of BloodClan into the farm while posing as a helpless loner.

18 Rainflower

She is so biased and from the start, she only loved one kit. At first, she loved Stormkit (Crookedkit), and ignored Oakkit. Then, just because of some injury, she hates on Crookedkit. She is fine with him leaving the Clan and blames him for it. This disgusting fur all deserves so much worse!

I do think Rainflower's actions were bad, but she was different. She was trying to stop loving Crookedstar so that if he died, it wouldn't affect her. She changed his name so she would forget about Stormkit. It's not that she didn't love him. She was just trying to prevent being hurt emotionally.

If she were emotionally hurt, it could lead to worse things. For example, Ashfur didn't get the love he was looking for, and since every other cat was out of his age ranks, he threatened to kill many cats. This led to Hollyleaf leaving and Lionblaze and Jayfeather hating Leafpool and Squirrelflight. But that's beside the point. The truth is that she was trying to shelter herself from the pain that would have been inflicted. - Whitesplash

19 Goosefeather

Goosefeather was CURSED! That's why the book is called Goosefeather's Curse. Cloudberry took him in as her apprentice. Hawkheart killed Moonflower, not Goosefeather. He isn't the type of cat that would kill his good littermate. (Brambleclaw is a totally different story)

Goosefeather tried to help his clan when he KNEW they would starve. He even told Doestar about the kittypets attacking Squirrelwhisker's patrol. He also knew that Swiftpaw (later Swiftbreeze) was over by the sunningrocks when she went missing. How does that make him evil?

20 Clear Sky

He is the worst! He was so cruel, killed poor Rainsweptflower, and mated with a fox-hearted she-cat. He was horrible to Storm and Thunder, and was the worst brother.

He was a horrible fox-heart, and was rude and mean to Micah when he tried to heal his son. He was horrible to everyone, except his smudge-faced mate. - Fadinglight of ThunderClan

I'm going to get so much hate for this, but fluff it. Clear Sky is a really good villain because he left multiple cats to die, rejected his son twice, and basically killed Micah. But the biggest thing of all is his relationship with Gray Wing. It's heartbreaking to watch because it feels so genuine.

Also, we got to see everything happening in his mind, and he suffered a lot of trauma. His sister died when she was a kit, and he watched his own brother and mother die. He was rejected by many of his Clanmates, so his pain feels very real.

After book three, we're at The Blazing Star. He starts taking in cats without realizing it because he is traumatized by what he did in the Great Battle. He thinks he needs all the support he can get. After One Eye, he is desperately trying to prove himself to the other Clans by coming up with ideas that made more sense the more you think about them. But his decisions led to pure chaos. So, he became self-conscious and began being defensive. This is why I think he became a villain again. And this is a VILLAINS list. And Skystar is a GREAT villain.

21 Stormtail

I don't like him. Moonflower loved him when she was a kit. Then, they have kits and he's all, "Forget what's-her-face and my kits! I'm gonna go hang with Dappletail."

When Moonflower dies: "Wait, who are you? Oh, you're my kit! Wait, what's-her-face died? Oh well, sorry." In StarClan: "I'm so sorry, my precious Bluestar! I should've protected your mother! I never loved Dappletail." Then she comes: "Hi, my love... No, I was just thinking of you... No, they mean nothing to me!" See, he's a no-good, lying jerk-face!

Stormtail was a terrible father (much more than Crowfeather), a terrible mate (much more than Crowfeather), and a cheater (much more than Crowfeather. Why am I comparing him to Crowfeather? I have no idea), but he was loyal to his clan and was (kind of) there for Bluestar when Snowfur died (kind of).

22 Ruby

I swear, Ruby was such a bully. She deserved to get hit by a car! I hate her forever. She's bullying, an idiot, a devil, awful, etc.

Technically, if she didn't do what she did, Scourge would've never formed BloodClan, and some other cat would have had to kill Tigerstar nine times because the forest cats don't have dog teeth as claws to rip out nine lives at once. So, she indirectly saved the forest.

You terror! You changed poor Tiny/Scourge's life! Look at it this way. If Ruby hadn't left him out, made him want to prove himself, then tell him that unwanted kits get thrown in the river, Scourge/Tiny would have been a kittypet, and nothing bad concerning Scourge would have ever happened!

23 Snowtuft

Guys, Snowtuft WAS a villain. He doesn't remember why, but when does he ever show remorse for what he supposedly did? He admires Tigerstar, for StarClan's sake! Clearly, he's still evil even though it's been so long.

Sure, he helped Rootspring and Shadowsight, but that was originally only because he wanted to save his own skin. Though he did save them, it was not enough to get him into StarClan when cats like Redwillow or Juniperclaw also weren't allowed. -Songshadow of TimberClan

Hey! Don't call him evil! Sure, he went to the Dark Forest, but that just isn't good enough. He actually realized his mistakes and tried to redeem himself, which is the most you can expect from a Dark Forest cat. When Shadowsight arrived there, Snowtuft gave him information and led him to Ashfur, while not listening to that fox-heart.

Then, when Rootspring almost drowned, Snowtuft helped him. When they got captured, instead of ripping Rootspring's head off, he attacked Ash-dung, allowing Rootspring, Shadowsight, and Brislefrost to escape. If Ashpoop hadn't killed him, he should have gotten a place in StarClan.

24 Shredtail

People underrate him so much! He was one of the leaders of the Dark Forest. I know there wasn't much to be said about him, but the books made it clear that he killed several cats. I don't know why he's number 25.

He was so mean to Thistleclaw in his training, and that made Thistleclaw turn his anger on Tigerclaw. That really turned Tigerclaw to the dark side, and we all know how evil Tigerclaw is. (Actually, I can name five cats more evil than him: One Eye, Dark Tail, Scourge, Broken Star, and Maple Shade)

He was in the Dark Forest, which is bad enough!

25 Foxheart

I don't think Foxheart is necessarily evil, but yeah, she was mean. She was mean to Yellowfang and was all over Raggedstar, but that doesn't mean she's evil.

I wouldn't really call her evil. Sure, she was mean to Yellowfang and tried to steal Raggedstar away from her, but that just shows she's a jealous she-cat.

Raggedpelt said, "Foxheart is nothing to me, Yellowfang." Foxheart truly deserves that name.
