Top 10 Warrior Cats that Most Deserve to Be in Starclan

Maybe some of the Dark Forest cat out there aren't as evil as we think they are and deserve their spot in Starclan.
The Top Ten
1 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.

I really think Mapleshade should be in Starclan. I give credit to the person who gave me this idea, but think about it! She had a bad childhood. If she was exiled, and no cat called for her to stay or anything, that means her parents and siblings don't care about her or are dead. Which leads to a bad childhood. I watched a video on youtube and Bright Guardian Akira and Moonkitti really said that Mapleshade was always selfish, and they got that proof from when Mapleshade thought or said several times " Back off Reedshine! Appledusk is mine!" But they didn't look into the story. What really made Mapleshade evil and selfish? What I said about the bad childhood. If her parents and siblings were dead or if they didn't care about her, Mapleshade never learned to love. She was selfish becuase she thought Appledusk would always be the one to love her. This is Why she DESERVES Starclan. Thx for the person with this theory and Bright Guardian Akira is no longer active I think.

mapleshade is absolutely still a bad cat who does not need to go to starclan. because HELLO? insanity does not mean you get to murder cats and get away with it, unless it was for an absolutely great reason, or if it was on accident. and don't bring up other cats who killed for no reason, because I was against it too.

I hate Mapleshade, she is one of my least favorite cats, but she had a sad life. She doesn't really deserve StarClan, but she does deserve a second chance to start over. Restart her life, you know? I'm not saying her kits didn't matter, but a second chance to have a good life. I also created a scene:

Mapleshade was in the Dark Forest, licking herself. There was only one rule: Kill or be killed. 'Mapleshade?' Thistleclaw's growl echoed.

'What!?' she spat.

'You've got visitors,' Thistleclaw snorted. 'Listen! We're suppose to be worst enemies, so you have to leave as soon as you see the Blood Moon in the sky, got it!? Go.' Mapleshade sighed, got up, and walked towards her visitors. The visitors... were her kits! 'Patchkit! Petalkit! Larchkit! Oh, my love...' Mapleshade licked them and was so happy! Joy burned inside her. Her kits were back! StarClan actually let that happen! 'Mapleshade...' Patchkit said sadly. 'Why did you kill cats?' Mapleshade stared at the look ...more

Mapleshade deserved to go to StarClan.
Mapleshade and her kits was thrown out of ThunderClan, Appledusk (or whatever his name is) betrayed her! Oakstar wasn't a bad leader and yes she betrayed the warrior code but I still think that she should of gone to StarClan

2 Brightflower She is mother to Yellowfang and she accused her daughter of killing her second litter. However, she is a good and caring mother.

She was grieving...Don't get me wrong, I still don't like her, but...She's a grieving mother. When you're in a state like she was in, it's easier to blame someone else and sulk then to accept it...

Yellowfang's mother. According to Su, she couldn't handle the death of her two kits after she thought her older daughter murdered them. And when Brokenstar revealed it was him, she couldn't understand it because she wasn't "sane enough". What? So a cat is sent to the Dark Forest because they were emotionally unstable after their kits were murdered and they were made to believe it was older kits? That's just cruel.

She lost her 2 kits to Brokenstar, but she believed that YellowFang killed them, it wasn't her fault that she blamed YellowFang, because she was so lost in grief.

She was a loyal clanmate and a good mother, so if RainFlower went to Starclan, why didn't she?

It's not fair that Ashfur went to StarClan after threatening to kill 4 cats, but good cats like Brightflower and Lilywhisker went to the Dark Forest for being mad at something that everyone else would've been mad at too!

3 Lilywhisker

I haven't read the book she's in yet, but I knew why she's in the Dark Forest.
I think she deserves to be there. She should be grateful for even being ALIVE!...said no one ever.
Of course she would be bitter and upset about having to move early! Imagine if it were Cinderpelt, Erins! You would send Cinderpelt to StarClan but Lilywhisker to the DF?

Similar with Lilywhisker. She went to the Dark Forest because "she couldn't accept her fate" after her injured her back leg, sending her to the Elder's den too early. Su seems to quite insensitive when it comes to people with mental illnesses and life changing injuries. Because apparently those are enough to seen you to the Dark Forest. Not for murdering or betraying anyone but simply because you were angry for a justified reason.

She went to the dark forest... Because she got mad that her leg got hurt..? come on Erin's..

I feel bad for her

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

Most people use the justification for Thistleclaw going to the dark forest being what he did to Spottedleaf, which is disgusting and evil. But Spottedleaf's heart was released a long time after he was confirmed a dark forest cat, and it clearly wasn't initially planned for him to do that to spottedleaf. He actually had personality in the earlier books, but in the newer books he was just reduced to doing bad things because he was evil. So, if that makes any sense at all, I think the ORIGINAL thistleclaw deserves starclan.

I wish he was leader instead of Bluestar. "Thistleclaw is an arrogant, aggressive, and ambitious cat with a thirst for battle and power. Under his brutal mentorship Tigerstar became one of the most ruthless and cunning cats the Clans had ever seen." (Quoted from somewhere).

He's battle hungry and arrogant, yes, but plenty of other "good" cats are the same way.
Mudclaw, who started a civil war because he was angry that Onestar was chosen as leader over him, and Blackstar, who followed Brokenstar and Tigerstar's orders to the letter despite them being horrific come to mind.
The vast majority of his "evil" comes from Bluestar's, very biased, point of view on him and late-series retcons to make him look worse done by Vicky, who's openly stated that she hates him for whatever reason.
The point is, Thistleclaw was screwed over by the writers bias against him.

Yes, everything could be dismissed with Thistelclaw's behaviour, just saying that he was a good and strong warrior, doing his job to defend his clan. Sure, Bluestar was arrogant and Thistleclaw's story was told from an unfair point of view, yet everyone forgets about Spottedleaf's Heart, which is the one, and perhaps the only thing that tips me over the line.
Thistleclaw was a CHILD PREDATOR in that book. He manipulated Spottedleaf, and was VERY willing to let her hurt his son. He must have been some widowed, I don't know, 20-40 year old with a son older than Spottedpaw herself, yet he always favoured Spottedleaf, even as a kit. When Spottedpaw must have only been, I don't know, 12-15 when he tried to manipulate and seduce her. In my opinion, that is a good enough reason to be dumped in the dark forest.
To clarify, I do not think that Thistleclaw deserved to rot in the Dark Forest because of his actions in Bluestar's Prophecy. Sure, what he did to Scourge was unacceptable, but ...more

5 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.

I really don't like her (I think it was totally unjustified for her to ruin her mom's and her foster-mom's lives just because of her own selfishness but whatever) but even I know that she deserves to go to Starclan. she was forever loyal and a great warrior. she even tried to become a medicine cat because she wanted to be the most helpful she could be.

She didn't go to the Dark Forest. Just because she didn't appear in Starclan doesn't mean she isn't out there somewhere.

Holy leaf went to the dark forest?

She is amazingly strong!

6 Deerfoot

Brokenstar's adopted brother and the son of Lizardstripe. What did he do? He never supported Brokenstar. And he was always a loyal warrior, doing his job. Never once, did we see him kill someone or anything like that.

7 Antpelt

A Dark forest trainee. Killed by Thistleclaw and then a 2nd time by Ivypool. Was manipulated by the Dark Forest and Starclan never once tried to reach out and help him. Not to mention, there wasn't anything he could do to leave the Dark Forest training. Beetlewhisker tried it and instantly got killed off Brokenstar snapped his spine. There are many other Dark Forest trainees that got off scott-free, he why not him?

I guess he really shouldn't have, but he kinda wanted to-? He said it was better then Starclan? Uh.., but I guess he sorta deserves to be here, but they might have sent hime to Starclan if he'd wanted to instead of da Dark Forest...

He didn't. He just died in there.

He Just died training

8 Darkstripe

Darkstripe,I don't like him but he did not kill anyone and he did not decide to betray thunderclan when Tigerstar attacked Bluestar!

Yellowfang said: Ashfur didn't go in Dark Forest because he didn't kill anyone. So why Darkstripe went into the Dark Forest? He also didn't kill Sorrelkit.

Sure, he followed Tigerstar, but also...Tigerstar was his former mentor and I'm 80% sure he was manipulated?

He should be praised for his Loyalty to Tigerstar.

9 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.

Why is Firestar over here? I know that he deserves to be in starclan, but then Thunder and Gray Wing also deserve to be here. I think that Firestar is nothing compared to...Gray Wing and Thunder. If it was not for Thunder and Gray Wing there would never have been a Thunderclan. There probably won't be any clans. Clear Sky would probably have taken control over the whole forest, if not for Thunder and Gray Wing. I like Gray Wing and I think that he deserves to be here instead of Firestar.

This picture kinda looks like he's doing an unenthusiastic yawn.

I know he is in StarClan

He went to Starclan!

10 Blizzardwing

A Cat that appeared in Tallstar's revenge and Yellowfang's secret. Same with Deerfoot, what did he do wrong?

He also did nothing! I kinda liked him!

He commited Adultery with Holllyflower.
Spoilers for Blackfoot's reckoning

The Contenders
11 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.

He didn't go to starfish since he was not a clan cat, but I think he is happy in whatever afterlife he is in, waiting for barley.

Ravenpaw did nothing bad!

He did go to StarClan

12 Tangleburr

Was Brokenstar's adopted sister. I admit she was loyal to Brokenstar. However she was typically following the warrior code by following her leader. Not to mention, wasn't you follow your brother/sister if they were leader? Never killed anyone. Was forced to become a rouge against her will, with no fair trial. When Thunderclan attacked, she'd be expecting for her Clanmates to help defend their camp but imagine how confusing it must of been to have your trusted clanmates suddenly turn on you and treat you like an enemy.

That's one I've always been confused about. In the exile of Brokenstar and his followers, how was it decided who were "Brokenstar's followers"? Did cats go crazy and just accuse each other and drive out who ever they didn't like?

Tangleburr deserves to be in starclan. When I read Tigerclaw's Fury she seemed kind enough, and when she was driven out of her clan it was unfair since in the warrior code it says that a clan leaders word is law, so she was just being loyal to the warrior code.

She was so kind, forgiving and loyal why did she have to go to the Place Of No Stars/Dark Forest!

13 Breezepelt

Breezepelt isn't perfect, and with all that he's done, maybe he doesn't deserve to go to StarClan, but also...he grew up and was raised in a bad place. In his eyes, his father didn't love him and paid more attention to cats from a DIFFERENT CLAN then he did to him...Like...What?
Of course he would be bitter about it, and even agrier at WindClan for doing NOTHING ABOUT IT

Hmm let me think about this for a second. To be honest though I feel sorry for Breezepelt. He had a father that didn't care about (a.k.a I am looking at you Crowfeather) and a mother that told him lies. Yeah Breezepelt didn't have great parents. I want to call Crowfeather a bee-brain right now. He was not a good parent and only mated with Nightcloud to prove his loyalty to Windclan. Lets all admit it: Breezepelt had a bad childhood.

he totally deserves to go to Starclan! I really love him. (don't ask me why, because I don't really know) its not his fault at all about how he turned out, his dad was a total A-hole, his mom was...not the best mom...and he didn't have any friends to support him! he was all alone and that can really show the worst part of people. or cats.

Yes, he dose deserve it

14 Redwillow

A Dark Forest trainee who fought one the Dark Forest's side in New Hope and got killed by Blackstar. Similar thing with Antpelt. Didn't do anything apart from fighting on the "wrong" side. I think when it's being decided where a cat should go after their deaths, they should be judged for their own individual actions, not the actions of their group or someone else, they happened to be loyal to. It shouldn't be a matter of sides or loyalty. Every group should be judged equally.

He tried to kill Blackstar!

15 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.

Silverstream is one of my favorite characters I don't know why she had to die.

As long as it is not Graystripe.

I have no words

Silverstream did secretly be mates with Graystripe but she already went to starclan

16 Redtail

All I need to say was he was a good deputy and was very young when he died.

17 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.

An awful lot of the cats on this list did go to StarClan.

18 Snowtuft

Snowtuft should've had a chance in StarClan! He doesn't even remember why he's there, what's the point of keeping him there?!

-Sweethoney of ThunderClan (He/they)

Hi my name is Snowtuft, ever since kit hood I was confirmed evil by standing still and getting used for filler, I then killed my family by getting used for filler, my medicine cat then had to use death berries on me for standing still with the evil cats, now I live in the dark forest, standing with the evil cats.

I see a lot of comments saying Snowtuft was just 'there' and I would agree if I hadn't read The Place of No Stars. Snowtuft risked his existance to help Bramblestar and Rootspring save Squirrelflight just for the sake of doing what's right, and I hope by the end of A Light In The Mist StarClan lets Snowtuft join. Maybe he didn't deserve it then, but he does now.

19 Dawnpelt

I didn't like her at all until AVoS, but also...she was grieving. It's hard to just accept that her brother was gone, so of course she would desperately want someone to blame

Many people disliked Dawnpelt, but honestly other than the accusing Jayfeather thing she's an amazing character! I mean unless you've had a love one die before, who knows what you would do!

Wow! She accused Jayfeather. (I seriously hate Jayfeather. He is bossy, annoying, acts like a know-it-all, and is plain terrible.)

20 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 had a tough childhood, I'll give him that. But that doesn't excuse him for; training and killing kits, banishing the elders and Yellowfang, driving out Windclan, Killing his own father and plotting with Tigerclaw.

Quite a evil leader. If just he was not Yellowfang's son.

He thinks he's a tree

Demented by hatred.

21 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 by his neck being pierced by the stick of the fox trap.

Hawkfrost should not be in the Dark Forest, because he didn't do anything wrong. He was manipulated by his dad, he actually loved Bramblestar, and he tried to convince Bramblestar to kill Firestar, he didn't kill anyone. And the Dark Forest poisons your mind, that's probably the biggest reason why Hawkfrost killed Hollyleaf.

Praised for his evilness and Loyalty to Tigerstar.

22 Thornclaw

Thornclaw is good bro!

23 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.

He is a evil and brave warrior. He only cares for one cat and that one cat is Tigerstar. He would have a wonderful leader. (I like his evilness.)

He is only evil because his mentor encouraged him. If he had a different mentor then he would probably be like white storm.

24 One-eye

It would be better if he had two eyes, but he was evil and that is good enough.

25 Clawface

Honestly, Clawface was just doing what his leader said and Spottedleaf just happened to be in the way of his leaders plans. You could say that he's just very loyal.

He never really did anything wrong... other than kill Spottedleaf... but still I'm to mad at him for that
