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.

I gotta admit, this guy is a pretty good leader. He was a totally crap deputy though. Even so, I definitely wouldn't call him the best leader. I still hate him for making Brambleclaw deputy. He broke the rules doing it! Literally, it was the worst possible decision that he could have made. He said, "oh no, I don't think Brakenfur would be a good leader." WHY NOT? And what about Thornclaw. He would have made the perfect deputy, especially as he loves organising patrols, has had an apprentice, is older, experienced and more understanding than stupid Bramvleface will ever be. Compared to Crookedstar or tallstar his leadership skills are just lame.

I think that Firestar is a great Clan leader because he was loyal and he wasn't like Bluestar when she was insane. He let everyone have a turn at being an apprentice and a mentor. He was fair and held ShadowClan accountable when they kept marking their scent markers on ThunderClan territory. I also think that he chose two great deputies, Brambleclaw organizes patrols and hunts a lot. And Graystripe was loyal to his Clan even though he changed his Clans once to be with his kits. Brambleclaw also proved his loyalty when he recused Firestar from the fox trap that Hawkfrost lured him into. - Dovefeather of ThunderClan

He is amazing he saved the clans multiple times and it was so fun to read to first series with him. And he was a great leader his new training techniques they worked, well some did. But I hate how graystripe was thrown out after he came back it's so unfair, mistyfoot was deputy when she returned. And bramblestar sucks. He is a horrible leader, not at all like firestar. Firestar was noble generous and thoughtful and he cared about all the clans, it was so sad when tigerstar killed him.

He is such a good leader. He's not that good at fighting but he fights very smartly. Like, when there's a problem Firestar is the one who can solve it1

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.

Blue star is MID! She allowed herself to get unhinged when Tigerclaw did hod crazy traitor stuff, and she made fireheart the deputy when he was obviously the worst choice. Oh, and if she was "wise".why did she have to commit suicide?

I don't know what to say about Bluestar. She was a nice, kind and loyal leader when Rusty/Firestar first came. But giving BrightHeart the name "LostFace?!". Not okay! Nobody touches our lovely BrightHeart.

She was such a good leader when she deid I was so sad. She believed starclan so much and then gave up on it I was confused at first, but I got used to it

OMG it is so obvious that bluestar is the best leader and possibly the best character in the whole book series. She is so pretty and bluestars prophecy is my favourite super edition. I love mistystar as well but we are talking about bluestar. I love how she can like be so patient and understanding than she can turn so stubborn and furious. She is my fave character AND that's FINAL
-silvershine a thunderclan warrior

3 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 really respect Crookedstar. He was very persevering and understanding. He's my favourite leader, I like him even better than Tallstar.

By the way, his super edition Crookedstar's Promise is the best by a landslide. So as Stormkit he was loved but then Rainflower just completely decided that since his jaw was broken she would name him CROOKEDkit. Like think about it; you're a baby but your mom changes your name to emphasize your physical deformity. Then she says heartless things about him, saying to Oakheart something along the lines of 'why do you care about him? He'll never be as good as you' when Oakheart became an apprentice, and basically he loved Willowbreeze so much, their relationship was so sweet and his kits' and Willowbreeze's deaths were the saddest I've ever read. But throughout the book he remains one of the strongest and loyal warriors but doesn't end up being all muscle no brain like Lionblaze does; he made a promise to Mapleshade to be the strongest warrior he could be. Even after that sadness, he still leads his clan well and it's explicitly stated in Crookedstar's Promise that the warriors count ...more

I could go into the depth of his really rough life but I'll focus on his leadership. He while yes sometimes made not the best choices only wanted to help River clan. When he hunted on Wc territory it was all to help River clan. All he did was for river clan so I think he deserves some credit.

His super edition was the best. Just read it.
Anyway he lost his whole family super tragically but he still lead Riverclan fairly and justly, and won so many battles that they couldn't keep track (it stated so in the super edition). Even though he was rejected by his own mother and Mapleshade nurtured him in twisted ways, he didn't turn evil like Brokenstar and was determined to be the best cat he could be. He was also really funny as shown in Bluestar's and his super edition when they meet each other for the first time.

4 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.

at first I thought he was just an old background leader but then I read his super edition I now I really pity him I mean it was so sad when he died.

I gotta say, he was a really good leader until the end. He was respectful and truthful until the end. I was so sad when he died, but he was one of the best leader in my opinion!

He was amazing! Tallstar has been my favorite cat from all the warrior books. His death was tragic, but he was the wisest leader I knew. His choice of Onestar becoming Windclan's new leader wasn't a wise choice. Battles raged across the new moors of Windclan. Mudclaw was full of depressing ambition with Hawkfrost by his side. Strong and wise Tallstar was determined to do the best he could before his ninth life slipped away. Jake had inspired him to find kindness even in the midst of battles when it came to generosity. If Jake was a clan cat he would be one of my favorites. He knew there was kindness in everyone, even the most ambitious leader. He helped Tallstar even through the bumpiest roads to find his true destiny. Tallstar has been wise and thoughtful just because one cat made a difference to him.

Now here is a truly good cat, go Tallstar! Even though he never had a good relationship with his parents he still was a good cat. He also found a friend in Shrewclaw in the end which was good. He was always loyal to his parents and even though his dad turned his back on him Tallstar still fought to find the killer of his father, when all along the killer to his father was the tunnels. After discovering what really happened he saved the life of the cat he was going to kill. He was told that Sandgorse was killed in the tunnels and he had held them up for Sparrow! Sandgorse really was a hero and Tallstar gets that from his dad when he saves Sparrow.

5 Mistystar Mistystar is a lithe, pale blue-gray she-cat with thick, sleek fur, a pink nose, a plumpy tail, and wide, ice-blue eyes. Her mother was Bluestar and her father is Oakheart. Her adopted mother was Graypool and her adopted father is Thrushpelt. Her sister is Mosskit and her brother is Stonefur, her adopted sibling is Swankit. Her mate is Blackclaw. Mistystar's daughter is Primerosepaw and her sons are Pikepaw, Perchkit and Reedwhisker. Her apprentices are Feathertail, Mothwing, and Dapplenose.

Long live Mistystar! She does what is fair even if some cats don't like her for it. She struggled with learning that Bluestar is her mother but then again, wouldn't you be shocked? Mistystar lost her brother and many of her kits, and apparently her mate doesn't care enough to be around. She is like the only leader that is real, not a prophecy cat or one who went on a huge quest and stuff. Sure, she took it hard when she found out that Mothwing doesn't believe in StarClan, but she had a right; Mothwing is a medicine cat after all and she has lied to her Clan for so long.

Mistystar! Yay! She is so loyal to RiverClan even though she is part ThunderClan. But she still loves Bluestar, her mother, and it was sad right when she and Stonefur figured out Bluestar was their mom Bluestar died. She stayed loyal to RiverClan even when they joined with ShadowClan and the half-clan cats were going to get killed. She was protective of Feathertail and Stormfur, but was devastated when Stonefur was killed but kept on being loyal to RiverClan. Cats didn't like how she made her son, Reedwhisker her deputy but I think it was a good choice, and, after all, the cats shouldn't be questioning their great leader. She can do what she decides! Go Mistystar!

Okay, I love her brother more but she was great to. While I wish it were Stonefur leading river clan I'm glad it is at least her. She is a considerate yet when needed brutal cat and I respect her for sure.

She was the BEST Clan leader EVER! She is Bluestar's daughter and she is kind and understanding. As soon as I knew her I immediately fell in love with her character! Bluestar's death, learning that she was half-clan, RiverClan being taken over by ShadowClan and Stonefur's death made her a more understanding leader. I believe if she was still kind, nice and understanding, but became a little more stern, she would make a PERFECT leader! (when I say 'PERFECT' I don't mean mary-sue, but the kind everyone loves)

6 Leafstar

She literally started out life as a rogue. She was very good at adjusting to the life of the Clans and was a patient, strong leader, and a caring mother. She led her Clan to the lake to be with the other four Clans and is still alive (which is hard to believe, considering she has been a leader for seasons upon seasons upon seasons). The only thing I don't like about her is how she took kittypet names and just pushed a suffix on the end of them (Billystorm, Harveymoon, Ebonyclaw, etc.). Please, at least name your warriors properly. Otherwise, great leader!


Leafstar is the best leader. She helped Firestar start her own clan and she was able to keep it going until Sol came in and nearly torn SkyClan apart. She had to make a lot of tough decisions for her clan and she is one of the most reasonable leaders. I don't know why they put Leafdapple as her name at the top; it should be LeafSTAR, but anyways, she was a great mother and she was very brave. Best clan leader!

Okay, Leafstar. She managed to save her clan from a FLOOD. A FLOOD, I tell you! Only one elder died, but I think she died from old age. She exiled Sol before he could become a warrior and take over SkyClan. She made the smart move of allowing daylight warriors, convincing some who were about to leave to stay! Also, her mate, BIllystorm, decided to stay just for her and their kits! I LOVE you LEAFSTAR!

Leafdapple is a great leader of SkyClan, even though shes torn between her kits and her clan. She made many tough decisions, like letting daylight warriors into the clan, letting Sol into the clan, and more. She makes sure SkyClan survives and she has been extremely kind to cats outside of the clan. She managed the flood that swept throughout SkyClan camp well. I don't approve of her choice of Sharpclaw as deputy, because he seems bossy and commanding. I think Leafstar is one of the best leaders ever. :D

7 Sunstar

He is literally the best leader ever! Even though he's not heard of much he comforts Bluepaw/fur. And that is just so sweet. He should definitely have a whole book about bringing back thunderclan to its good days.

I know he wasn't really a main character but he was such a brave, selfless cat. Even though when Moonflower died he still managed to comfort Bluepaw/Fur/star and that shows a lot. And when he became leader with only 8 lives he fulfilled his promise of making Thunderclan great again. He is probably my favorite cat in the series. I wish they made him his own book.

Sunstar Sunstar Sunstar…he never really got that much attention, though I personally think we should've got more attention because of how passionate, clever, patient he is! He is in my top 5 favorite leaders and I LOVE his attitude! He wasn't picky and wanted attention like some of the other leaders!
- Eclipsepelt from CloudClan

He's not a very major character, but he's definitely worth the vote. Why? Cause he helped Bluestar a lot whenever she was upset (even though at first Bluestar didn't like that). And he had the good sense to choose Bluestar for deputy and NOT THISTLECLAW. Imagine if he'd chosen Thistleclaw, who's much more experienced than Bluestar. ThunderClan would turn into a living disaster.

8 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.

Ya'll hating on Bramblestar because he apparently 'abuses' Squirrelflight. Maybe he isn't da best leader but he is a good cat. I kinda think he had a right to be angry at Squirrelflight for lying though. Imagine thinking you have kids with someone and finding out they aren't even yours, you would be angry especially that they lied. But it also wasn't exactly his fault that he was becoming ambitious like his father. Tigerstar was persuading him and getting in his head, without the help of Hawkfrost. It is fine wanting to be deputy, but he took it a bit far trying to get Berrykit to be his apprentice. Meh I think he is okay

I dont think Bramble'Star was a good husband. I mean like, I think he liked Bristlefrost when he had a mate called SquirrelFlight. I hate Squrrielflight she dumped poor Ashfur, Uhm back to BrambleStar, I think bramble'Star does not derserve to be chosen by Squirrelflight or a leader!

I'm sorry, but I just can't seem to like Bramblestar. Correction: I loathe him with a burning passion. Well, I didn't always hate him. In fact, he was one of the cutest apprentices ever. And he was noble and strong and everything on the journey with Squirrelflight. But he just went downhill once they got to the lake. He went around telling everyone what to do and was really bossy. And he went to the Dark Forest even though he was fully aware that Tigerstar was evil. He didn't deserve to become deputy, let alone leader. I hate how they threw Graystripe out just so that bramblestar could lead. It was so cheesy.

Yes, I did feel bad for him when Squirrelflight was being an idiot about the Hawkfrost thing. I was also sad that he was lied to. But I really wish that his brother had killed him in Sunset. At least Hawkfrost isn't stupid. (Well not as stupid. Plus he's got the coolest icy blue eyes evah)

Bramblestar, it was rude of you to get angry with Squirrelflight for lying to you about Leafpool's kits and saying Hawkfrost was kind of sus. Squirrelflight did both for your own good! But other than that, you have been a good leader and ThunderClan is lucky to have you. He was so nice to all the cats and took care of his Clan so good, especially in the flood in Bramblestar's Storm. When the imposter got in his body it was kinda scary but I'm glad he got hurt in that battle so Squirrelflight became temporary leader, because she is DA BEST! I want him to die and Squirrelflight to become leader, but that means Squirrelflight will probably still want to save Bramblestar because she isn't ready for him to die. So if he comes to ThunderClan alive and Shadowsight doesn't listen to any weird visions about killing Bramblestar everything will go back to normal.

9 Thunderstar

I LOVE thunder star. He is brave, loyal and is mentally strong when his father rejects him. He lived a hard life. Mother died when he was a young Kit only a few days old. I love graying a lot but honestly not wind runner. She rejected thunder when she didn't even give him a chance. He is a true leader and right now we need to give him more credit.

Least favorite on this list. ThunderClan gets all the credit for everything. What about the other Clans? If you've read Dawn of the Clans, he doesn't even have a part in the naming or the making of the Clans! He just comes in after everything is made and takes some cats from each group to form a new Clan. He is way overrated and so is his whole Clan. Why should he be the center of everything? I hate Thunder and love Gray Wing! (Plus his parents were both gray so how did he end up as ginger and white? Because they wanted to make him special.)

He was good and strong, even after being rejected by his father, Clear Sky. He proved to be an amazing leader, kind toward his cats, and caring, and was very determined to find out where his true destiny lay as he struggled with hunting on the moor and his discomfort in climbing trees, unlike his father.

He was good and strong even after being rejected by his father Clearsky. He proved to be an amazing leader, Kind and caring to his clan cats. He was also previously Thunder. And hey was determined to find out where his true destiny lies as he struggles with hunting on the moor and his discomfort climbing the trees Unlike his father Clearsky- Also this needs more votes-

10 Leopardstar Leopardstar is a golden tabby she-cat with amber eyes. more.

Leopardstar is annoying, and rude. She's okay as a leader, but I don't like her in general. She is curt and swift about things, and she can get away with it. People keep hating on others that don't like her. She is brave and willing to protect HER clan. I don't like how she doesn't care about other clans problems and doesn't try to help them. Also she does kind of hate half-clan cats, she only accepted Hawkfrost and Mothwing because she may of known their father was Tigerstar. Anyways, 6/10 rating

Paws down amazing leopardstar loved white claw and sunfish and was devastated when they died she's always regretted stonefurs death and apologies to feathertail and stonefur. She's da best

Leopardstar is not a crap leader. I can see the hater comments: "Why do you like Leopardstar? You're so horrible to think that she's a good leader! " Yeah, in the Warriors fandom, it's a crime to like Leopardstar, just as it's a crime to hate Jayfeather or Yellowfang. Wel, I still say that Leopardstar was a loyal and courageous leader. Some would say that she was just a brat. Why wouldn't she be like that, after all of the attention given by her Clan when she was young? Besides, she grew to be a loyal cat. Also, some would say that she hated half-Clan cats. Then why would she accept Hawkfrost and Mothwing? You'd think, that if she really hated half-Clan cats, she'd have left them with their mother or even killed them. But she didn't. Oh, and her deputies were half-Clan (first Stonefur, then Mistystar). She may not have known about them being half-Clan at first, but when she found out, she didn't ditch Stonefur. She accepted it and moved on. Leopardstar may have joined TigerClan, but ...more

Leopardstar is hands-down amazing.She went through SO MUCH in Leopardstar's Honor and she gets so much hate for one small mistake.I could rant for hours about just how amazing she is.

The Contenders
11 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.

He wasn't meant to be evil. His litter mates pretty much controlled him to be a murder. I don't understand how you hate him. He just thought what he was doing was right and it proved he was strong after his littermates bullied him. Ruby why? He is small but he can still be strong!

If only ruby and socks did not encourged him to become an evil cat . scourge could had been one of a good wise leader like his half brother firestar

He was bullied and mocked as a kit by Ruby and socks, Attacked by Tigerstar when they were both younger. He had hatred on the clans ever since then, But it wasn't really surprising how he was treated by his own brother and sister because he was small and young. He deserved better than that. He left into the forest because ruby said: "Unwanted cats get throw into the river." But when he made up his own clan called "BloodClan." He basically took up an alley and got all the cats there to join his clan. His brother and sister also got karma because later they got thrown out of there homes. Scourge didn't want to care for them for what they did. He could have been good and joined another clan or stayed at his home or got adopted if it wasn't for his littermates and Tigerstar.

He was scorned and mocked as a kit, attacked by Tigerstar when they were both younger. He developed a hatred on the Clans ever since then, but it wasn't surprising, seeing how he was being treated by his own brother and sister. He deserves better than that! He even built up an entire Clan, and though he was harsh and cruel toward them, they were only life lessons that he himself thought that he'd learned. He could've been a good, strong, wise leader if his littermates hadn't teased him and Tigerstar hadn't attacked him.

12 Windstar

Wind was bossy she wanted all the spotlight when gray wing became leader! But she was always loyal to her clan! And she was a good cat!

She was fast, lithe, stubborn, and wily. I like her a lot because she had unique leadership qualities, and she cared for the cats that she'd known but was distrusting and hostile toward the cats that she never met and believed could possibly be a threat to her Clan. Overall, she's a good leader who cares for her Clan and family above all else.

She's awesome, she saved one of my favorite characters Jagged Peak, and she was a good leader and she and Gorse took new names to prove that they really wanted to be in Tall Shadow/ Grey Wing's group. She is just plain awesome.
- Lindenheart proud deputy of ForestClan

She wasn't that bad other than how she was so cruel to Moth Flight. She wasn't a bad leader, just a really bad mother.

13 Blackstar

Even though he was a strong Tigerstar supporter and killed Stonefur when he became leader he realised his mistakes and regretted everything then decided to lead his clan properly. That's what a true leader would do, and I think he was also one of the best ShadowClan leaders. Like someone said I also love his unique coat

He was once a bad cat obeying the evil Tigerstar! But when he was about to become leader he saw what he had done and he wanted to make it up so he became a great leader of ShadowClan! The better part is ShadowClan is my favorite clan and I was so happy to see him be a good leader of ShadowClan! Not the kindest to other clans but kind to his clan! Go Blackstar!

Though he wasn't the best...and he used to follow Tigerstar like a kit following her mother...he was one of the best ShadowClan leaders there have ever been.

I hated him at the beginning but he grew on me. All he wanted was for Shadow clan to be respected and he did manage to boost them back up slightly. I personally have nothing against Shadow clan but the other clans did for sure. So he deserves a vote for just honoring his clan and I absolutely love his pelt~Not why I voted for him though lol.

14 Cloudstar

He went through so much. I pity him at times, he had to sacrifice a lot. He's an amazing leader and I believe he should earn a higher place on this chart.

He literally watched his territory being destroyed. The other Clans were less than sympathetic, and Cloudstar had to make the hardest choice of all: leave or die. He had to leave behind his mate and kits and they joined ThunderClan, literally the enemy. He deserted StarClan, but he had been through a lot before he got to that point.

Poor, poor, Cloudstar. I'm so glad that he finally, believes again, in Starclan. He was a good cat, to say the least. But he reminds me of a, happless, middle-aged version of firestar. Birdflight, is like, Sandstorm, totally. Cloudstorm, is an amazing name, too. But that's not the thing. He's an, overall, grest cat. Very sad, though, near the ending. I don't like, how he, denied to believe in starclan, though. I PITY the FOOL! 1

I cried so much when I read how Cloudstar was kicked out of his territory. I blame it all on Redstar and ThunderClan! If they stopped attacking SkyClan when they knew it was weak maybe they would get better. Cloudstar was forced to leave his home and his kits. Why give them to ThunderClan?

15 Onestar Onestar is a fictional character from the book series "Warriors" by Erin Hunter. He is/was a WindClan leader, and is mottled, small, brown tom cat.

Why is he this high? He destroyed windclan. All the things that Tallstar did was for nothing. He undid it! I loved Onewhisker and his friendship with FireHeart/star. But he was faking it! Oh and I forgot to say.. He abused/cheated one of his mates. He does not deserve WhiteTail. She was so kind. I'm sorry for completely roasting Onestar rn but this is my opinion, I feel like Mudclaw would have been a better leader. Thanks for reading this and sorry that it is so long.

If you want to find out lots about how Onewhisker became the leader of Windclan, I suggest reading Warriors Graphic Novel, 'Winds Of Change'. Onewhisker was not a jerk to the other clans. Mudclaw was the one being the total jerk. Mudclaw always thought that Windclan always came before others. But Onewhisker thought differently.

He is such a horrible leader! It was like with firestar a Good friend and next he does like, he attacked thunderclan just because firestar helped other clans!
If only he was not born darktail would not be born and windclan would have not been a bad clan.

I don't really like Onestar but I like Onewhisker. He was an absolute jerk to ThunderClan and the other Clans. Always trying to prove to everyone that WindClan is strong and he is super annoying about lots of minor things. He was a better choice than Mudclaw but I feel like Tallstar could of picked someone better to lead his clan. He also lied about a lot of things, I dunno what his problem was. Overall, he is okay but he should be nicer and not act insane

16 Riverstar

The first leader of the great and glorious RiverClan! Also known as River Ripple, he was very mysterious and dignified. His elegance was unlike any other tom in the series. There are plenty of silver tabby she-cats but not very many silver tabby toms! He also came from that mysterious group, Cats of the Park, and literally believes the river saved his life. I'm so excited for his upcoming super edition in 2023!

River star is the best! River star was tender, polite brave and loyal, if you agree with me eh? Just agree with me, river is awesome! River did everything for his clan. River deserves this and everything

River was such a clam cat! He lead River clan well and the best founder of the clans. He was kind hearted intellegant and more! He should be in the top 5 instead on number 17. Firestar was boring after the prophecy begins so I don't really like him any more. Just my opinion, River was an awesome leader!

Riverstar should definitely be higher on the list. Honestly, the Erins didn't really focus on him that much so we didn't get to see a lot of his character. I wish they made a super edition or novella just focusing on him. Also, everything is about ThunderClan. Why not change it up and focus on RiverClan for a change? I know they have before, I just wish it had been more.

17 Raggedstar

Omg I hate him for being such a bad mate and a horrible leader, not seeing his evil kits intensions how blind is he? Pour Yellowfang, he deserved to die

To be honest, Brokenstar deserves to die twice and Raggedstar should have lived him and Yellow thing had something special, Yellowfang as a kit was the only one in her litter who didn't call Raggedstar a kittypet. And actually took him to find his father Raggedstar did kill him- Hal deserved to die. Raggedstar leads his clan well for the short time he lived. AND was the reason soL left SC. He was one of the best leaders SC ever had too.

Brokenstar deserved to die twice. Raggedstar never deserved to die. Him and yellowfang had something special, even if hw would've been gokd mates with foxheart. Yellowfang as a kit was the only one in her litter who didn't call raggedstar a kittypet, and actualkt took him too find his father Raggedstar did kill him, but honestly hal deserved to die. Raggedtsra lead his clan well for the short time he lived, and was the reason that sol left shadowclan.

He was killed by Brokenstar, leader of the dark forest, and his own son. He was brave enough to have kits with a medicine cat, Yellowfang. They loved each other, and when Raggedstar died I hated Brokenstar instantly.

18 Nightstar

Even though Nightstar didn't live too long, and he wasn't actually accepted properly I feel like he would of been one of the greatest ShadowClan leaders. He was really caring and protective, willing to put himself before his clan. He was also reasonable and fair and avoided causing trouble so the clans could be at peace. Nightstar was really proved his loyalty in Exile From ShadowClan

I know he died fairly fast after becoming leader but he showed great leadership skills while he was leader. he was selfless and considerate. His book showed a lot more character depth than I thought he had. He was a good leader but I do prefer Blackstar more.

Nightstar had a lung sickness (possibly asthma), but it didn't stop him from helping ShadowClan in the long run. Originally an elder forced to retire, he made his way to leadership after Brokenstar's exile.

I think he was going to go back to moonstone to get his nine lives after Brokenstar died. I really think the lives he would get, would turn him into such a great leader. Understanding, loyal, ambitious to the clan's strength and health. I could see him fighting a horde of badgers, by himself for the protection of ShadowClan.

19 Skystar

He is so mean!? He attacked his own group mate and killed a tribe mate! He has three mates! How will they think? Can they live peacefully all together? He was the one that cause jagged peak to have a broken league and almost killed gray wing!

I always hoped him going to the dark forest and I always qill

You know, what happened to Clear Sky also happened to Gray Wing. And did he kicked his brother and/or kits out of his group/killed a random loner with her kits/left his group cat to die/killed a friend of him with saying that he was strong? Just yelling that "Bruh Sky lost two mates and two litters of kits and his sister and his mother so why don't you consider him as a good guy" will anger others. Sorry if I offended you.

I am so mad at him for treating the cats around him like fox-dung. He was super arrogant. He was an ok leader but grr he I super annoying. That is my opinion and I respect any one others

Hang on, haters. This is the cat who lost 2 mates, almost all his kits, the trust of everyone, his medicine cat, and his brother and mom. Just because he did terrible things doesn't mean he's terrible. In fact, he's probably the best leader because of how many of his mistakes he's had to learn from. Skystar is the best leader. Firestar is bossier than 10 Tsunamies from Wings of Fire. He should be, like, 8.

20 Shadowstar

My absolute favorite cat! She suffered so much, seeing the loss of her brother, Moon Shadow, and Sun Shadow, afterwards. She stepped down from her leadership position to care for her brother, and when she couldn't save him, she was absolutely devastated. I felt so bad for her when her brother died, and then her deputy, Sun Shadow. But she was an amazing cat, clever, and she advised Gray Wing while he was leader. She felt comfortable in the darkness and night, as well as in the marshy land of the pines, and had sharp senses and sometimes wasn't very sensitive to the other cat's feelings.

Shadowstar is an amazing leader! She was kind to her cats and in a way she sort of reminds me of Bluestar, just by the way she acts. She lost all her family and she lost her sibling but she still stayed strong and kept going throughout her entire life. Shadowstar was great in Dawn of the Clans and I still like her to this day so Shadowstar gets my vote!

If it is the founder, I give her a 10/10 because she was very shy and quiet at first, but when the cats were fighting and the before-starclan cats came down and decided that they were warriors, she spoke up and was confident that she could lead all of the cats of all the territories.

Shadowstar is Tall Shadow.
I like Shadowstar number one because of her name. She has a unique name, plus the name is like. Family tradition. Sun Shadow, Moon Shadow, etc.
Second, she doesn't tolerate nonsense.
Third, her AWESOME Ckan!

21 Gray Wing

Gray Wing was not destined to become leader, and he knew it. Ironically, that made him a good leader. He was not very ambitious, so instead he listened to others constantly. Making choices based on what the group wanted and not himself. He was more concerned with their conditions after events than his. He could also see those that were destined for leadership roles before they were near ready to lead. (Ie: Moss Pelt, Tall Shadow (Shadowstar), Clear Sky (Skystar), Thunder(star), Lightning Tail, Wind (Windstar), and River (Riverstar).
This foresight is good for leaders to have. That way they can better prepare and help cats get to where they are meant to be. (Like Sunstar did with Bluefur). He was also noting roles for other characters like finding a purpose for Jagged Peak and noting which cats were good at/enjoyed healing, hunting, nursing, watching, or repairing.

I only wish he had a little more faith in his own role as leader.

Without Jagged Peak's runaway, Quiet Rain, his mother might have persuaded him not to go. So he chases and finds his younger brother. When he's found, the two decide to find Shaded Moss and his group.
When Turtle Tail decides to become a kittypet with her new friend, Bumble she mated with a vicious kittypet named Tom. She has 3 kits, Owl Eyes, Pebble Heart, and Sparrow Fur. She decides she wants the kits to be apart of Gray Wing's group. Gray Wing is happy she is back and but wanted to father her kits. While the kits are playing, they are kidnapped by Tom.
When Gray Wing arrives from saving his son, Black Ear the kits are overjoyed to see him. He starts wheezing and coughing. White Tail and Silver Stripe ask if he's dying. Gray Wing says that they were more than groups, they were Clans. Then they decided the names of the clans. Thunder's Group was ThunderClan and he became Thunderstar. River Ripple's Group was RiverClan and he became Riverstar. Tall Shadow's Group was ShadowClan ...more

Graywing was my favorite cat in all the series mainly because he was the nicest cat except firestar but he is mainly my favorite cat because he brought back thunder after clearsky rejected him and he brought all the cats together. Too bad that he died at the end of the series but I wish he came back in star clan with all of his friends and talked with one of the clan leaders like firestar.

Even though he wasn't technically a leader he was an amazing character with a heart of gold. He cared for many cats and was wise. I think he deserved to be leader, it was heartbreaking how he died.

22 Hailstar

Hailstar wasn't in to many books but I loved his unbiased way with Crooked star. He was a good leader and it was sad when he died from The rat attack.

I love Hailstar's way of leading. He doesn't judge Crookedkit once he returns from the barn and allows him to begin training soon after. And unlike some other leaders I've seen he has personality and is willing to battle other clans, but is not reckless and quick to attack, such as when he reclaims the sunning rocks. A strong and smart leader I say.

I really like Hailstar, because he's kind of unpredictable and I feel like he rushes things for his Clan, which makes him pretty relatable.

I loved Hailstar. Not my favourite, but He was nice, calm, strong and noble. All characteristics a clan leader needs!

23 Pinestar

Why Pinestar? I'm so sorry but PINESTAR didn;t EXILE MAPLESHADE! Like I know that he lived as a kittypet for his last life, he WAS a brave and loyal leader, I was kind of upset when he left but I understand why. But shouldn't Pinestar still live in his Clan and when Tigerkit (Tigerstar) gets apprenticed, a better mentor than Thistleclaw? It was kind of Pinestar's fault he made him evil, and a little bit of Sunstar's giving him Thistleclaw a mentor

He WAS a brave and loyal leader, until he decided to turn into a poor, dependent kitty pet! But, come on peeps, that cat WAS wise and courageous, and made a lot of good decisions.

People think Pinestar is bad just because he spent his last life as a kittypet. He had done so much for his clan, he deserved to be able to relax after helping his clan so much.

Pinestar is one of my favorite characters. He was a wise and peaceful leader, but he could not turn the tide against the endless cycle of bloodshed.

24 Ivystar

Not criticizing Ivystar or anything, but I hate Ivypool! She is such a jerk and so mean and jealous. Ivypool is so unimportant so everyone should just forget about her! Dovewing is so much better than Ivypool.

She should become a leader because she was very loyal to her clan and was only spying in the dark forest not joining.

Ivystar and Ivypool are different cats from different clans, Ivypool never became a leader...

Hollyleaf did it for her clanmates to protect them she was away from them for so many moons.

25 Morningstar

Morningstar led his Clan through a harsh time. He tried to keep peace, he tried to unite the Clans. But they were not ready for his wisdom.

I just like him. He gave Rabbitstar what he deserved. By the way, he is from Battles of the Clans.
