Warrior Cats that Should Go to the Dark Forest

The Top Ten
1 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.

I am questioning the ways of Starclan. Yellowfang said Ashfur didn't go to the Dark Forest because he didn't kill anyone. He ALMOST killed cats though. I bet if Squirrelflight didn't say that the three weren't her kits, Ashfur would've killed them.

YES! When they finally get Bramblestar back (which they WILL do), Ashfur better go to the dark forest. See how you like that, Ashfur!

Maple shade was cast out of her clan back when cats actually cared when people broke the code. Her kits were drowned because she couldn't swim - which is not her fault because she was thunderclan. Then her mate cruelly abandons her, starts screwing another cat, she kills him, and is murdered by her apprentice. She goes to dark forest. IF ASHFUR GETS AWAY WENT ATTEMPTED MURDER because OF LOVE, WHY NOT MAPLESHADE!

This is going to take a while. I think that Ashfur is just really sad because he loved Squirrelflight but she chose Brambleclaw instead because he saved her father from his own brother Hawkfrost so he did something awesome. Then Squirrelflight brings up three kits Jaykit, Lionkit, and Hollykit. Ashfur thought they were Brambleclaw’s kits. Ashfur takes the opportunity of a forest fire to try to kill the kits. But he does not succeed and goes to the Dark Forest. So he is kinda in the right and kinda in the wrong.

2 Mudclaw

I know that muclaw doesn't really deserve but still he's way worse than ashfur. I fell sorry for ashfur but I don't support his actions

He attempted to kill Onewhisker before he becomes Onestar. I say when he did that he bought his ticket to the Dark Forest.

How would you feel if a random cat came up to you and said "I'm leader now" while you were deputy?

To be fair, onestar wasn't made deputy in a proper way. So the challenge did seem logical

3 Hawkheart

People, people, if a capable cat jumps in front of you, tries to steal your herbs, in the middle of your camp, where your clanmates an their kits and elders are running around, scared for their lives, your just supposed to stand there, horrified and let the cat steal herbs that could save your clan from dying in this battle? No! Blue's Mom shouldn't have done that, it was a stupid plan from the start. If you want to blame someone, don't blame Goosefeather, or Hawkheart, blame their crappy leader!

Hawk heart killed moonflower because she and some other cat were going to destroy the herb supply and that takes months to fix according to Brambleberry. Herbs are crucial especially in battle because they are used for wounds and any sickness passed on by other cats. Had the supply been destroyed, most of the cats wouldn't have livesd. Not to mention that the attack was unprovoked. Herbs are also used on kits and elders and they also play major roles in the clan. It was necessary for Hawkheart to kill Moonflower like is he going to just sit there and let her destroy the herb supply?

The medicine cat code states that medicine cats can’t kill, unless they have good reason. Same thing with the warrior code. Sure, Moonflower was trying to destroy Windclans herb store, but killing her was extremely unnecessary. He could have just injured her, but he killed her, gloated about it, and taunted her grieving kits. He should be higher up.

This is one of my favorite medicine cats, and the sad thing is all he is rememberd for is killing moonflower (which was reasonable without those herbs cats could die and it takes a long time to stock up everything up again)
just read the comment below and youll understand. Hawkheart was chosen by starclan for a reason and people call him evil.. for killing ONE CAT. other warriors in the series have killed many in the thick of a fight yet nobody has a problem with that! also he was a great mentor to Barkface and harsh when he had to be, truly an honorable cat for protecting his clan and not standing by while their herbs get destroyed and cats die or get injured.

4 Rainflower

I cried when she rejected poor Crookedkit. Crookedstar's Promise was the second Warriors book I had read, and it was utterly cruel how Rainflower treated Crookedkit. She was never anything like a mother to him, and Mapleshade was technically the one who raised him. Oakheart got all the love. Oakheart also got mad at poor Crookedjaw when he let her die. She deserved it more then anyone ever did. I heard they made up in Starclan, but first of all, she shouldn't even be in Starclan. Secondly, they may have made up, but I heard Rainflower denied the offer to give Crookedstar a life. She's his MOTHER! There isn't even any reason she should dislike him in the first place. Just because he got his jaw messed up!? Wow. just Wow.

She abused her kit! She would’ve abandoned him if she could, and when she couldn’t she had his name changed to crookedkit! How cruel can you get?

I definitely agree agree. Crookedstar became evil because of her. She deserves to be in the dark forest really bad! She REJECTED crookedkit just because of his broken jaw and maybe some other stuff about him.

How is Rainflower not evil? 1-she only cared about how Stormkit looked 2-she renamed him Crookedkit 3- she stopped loving her own KIT and from then on since he broke his jaw she always showed favoritism to his brother, Oakkit 4- she never showed that she felt bad that she rejected him! 5-only cared about how her kits looked! D:<
Rainflower was a terrible mother/cat- Swiftdawn

5 Appledusk

Appledusk had to choose his forbidden mate or his clan and other mate who was eventually going to have his kits. It was the right choice to choose and stay loyal to his clan. Would he really choose his forbidden mate who not only decided to bring her kits across the river during one of the worst floods in leaf bare but expected Appledusk to take her side when she was responsible for her kits deaths because she chose to bring them across a flooded river. Mapleshade decided to seek revenge on the clans and blames them for her kits deaths. She blamed everyone but herself for her kits deaths. It didn't help that she had hallucinations of her kits and said they were the real spirita of her kits. She chose to not let them go and live a healthier life. Appledusk didbrealize they're relationship was a mistake and that is valued in a warrior. He doesn't deserve the dark forest.

Three words: I. Hate. Him. He didn't even want to know the kits names! he deserved death, he deserved the darkest corner in the dark forest. Mapleshade forever!

Evil in my opinion, has babies with maple shade, cheats on her with reedshine, maple shades kits are born, reedshine is pregnant, kits die and mother nearly not knowing the river is swollen in leaf bare, apple dusk deliberately blames her for their deaths even though he knew she was thunderclan and would not even know in the first place the river is swollen. Says everything’s a mistake when he wanted to be with her in the first place. 2 days later totally forgets the kits and acts like nothing happend and acts unguilty while a former mate still is haunted by the kits deaths... WHAT THE CRAP APPLEDUSK

Appledusk was a traitor, lier, killer and the worst mate anyone could have. Appledusk deserved to go to the Dark Forest, not Mapleshade!

6 Liquidstripe

(Liquidstripe is a cool name, though.)


7 Breezepelt

He joined the dark forest, but crowfeather neglected him all his life. If anything, crowfeather should go to the dark forest

He’s the only cat who fought for the dark forest! He also tried to kill a queen, a medicine cat, and his half-siblings, all because his father didn’t pay attention to him! I mean, join the club Breezepelt, Bluestar had a father who barely even acknowledged her existence, a mother who died when she was barely more then a kit, as well as a sister who was killed. She also had to give up her kits, and she NEVER trained with the dark forest! Breezepelt deserves to go to the dark forest more than any cat, and he wasn’t even punished for what he did! It’s ridiculous!

I hate Breezepelt. He is now current mates with Heathertail and they only became mates to prove his loyalty to Windclan. Heathertail should 've been lionblazes mate. She didn't deserve him.Anyway Breezepelt does have Amber eyes
I HATE him because how he chose Dark forest over his mother, father, clan and STARCLAN.He shouldn't have been born.
If leafpool stayed Mates with crow then...
Sorry I just rant on and on about the cats I hate

Didn't he go to dark forest for a little. Well, he can't anymore. Breezepelt's not that bad. He just had weird parents.

8 Sol

Sol should go to Dark Forest...but didn't he make ShadowClan stop believing in StarClan? I don't think he really counts.

He wouldn't go there cause he wasn't a clan cat

He didn't believe in the clans

He didn't believe in Starclan.

9 Hollyleaf Hollyleaf was one of the rare, strictly loyal cats of ThunderClan. She cherished the warrior code as a kit and came back to her clan in a time of need to fight-- even though she was cast out for killing Ashfur.

NO WAY! hollyleaf is great! She only killed ashfur because she wanted to protect squirrel and leaf from the clan hateing on them! If ahsufr gets away with that then they both do!

No! No, no, no, NO! Hollyleaf is amazing! Legit, this is one of the only cats that has never broken the warrior code. She is awesome. Haters die in a hole.

NO WAY! Just because she killed Ashfur, doesn't mean she was a bad cat. First of all, she didn't actually mean to kill him, the Hunters confirmed. Second, Ashfur gets to go to Starclan but she shouldn't? YES SHE SHOULD! Ashfur attempted to kill Firestar, Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jayfeather, and sort of Squirrelflight but not entirely. He plotted with a cat from another clan, and tried to kill innocent cats. HE DESERVES DARK FOREST, NOT HOLLYLEAF!

I don't REALLY think she deserves the Dark Forest, but it totally pisses me of that people think Ashfur does while she gets to be totally innocent. They both did wrong, and if Ashfur "deserves" to rot in cat hell, she's going down with him!

10 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 ...read more.

UMM Bluestar I mean.. she isn't technecly eveil but shes kinda a marysue... she calls brightpaw lots face for noe frikkin reason only to remind her every day that half her face was lost! I'm holding a grudge

Bluestar is just dumb and stupid she should be number one
-she trusts no cat and denies the loyalty of several Warriors
-she didn't make swiftpaw warrior which leads to bright hearts face being injured and him dying
- she called brightheart lost face
-she hates thistleclaw
(Why?!?!?! )
Blue: that's right thistleclaw

She did go crazy at one point, but she made up for it

Um...what did Bluestar do?

The Contenders
11 Oakstar

He should be number 1. He exiled 3 kits who never did anything wrong. If he didn't exile the kits, Mapleshade might not have seen the need to get revenge, and wouldn't have murdered cats to avenge the deaths of her kits.

He literally sends three two-month kittens into the cold and rain for a crime they didn't commit.
He feels no remorse for this and it's extremely ironic that he exiles them and their mother for breaking the warrior code but, by exiling the three kittens, he himself broke the warrior code.

YES! He was completely prejudice towards Mapleshade, just because her mate killed his son. It's his fault Mapleshade killed Frecklewish, ravenclaw, and others. If he hadn't banished her, her kits wouldn't be dead, Appledusk wouldn't have rejected her, she wouldn't have killed all the cats, and she wouldn't be rotting away in the DF right now.

Oakstar was blinded by the loss of his son, Birchface, and a good leader should not let these grudges bound him. He rejected Mapleshade and her kits just because they were close to Appledusk, who killed Birchface. Heck, he even hates certain cats simply of his personal asspects

12 Shrewclaw

No, he was an ass in the beginning but was better in the end. - RoseWeasley

13 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. ...read more.

She deserves to go to the DARK FOREST! She choose brambleclaw (tigerstar's son! ) over poor ashfur and broke his heart. it her fault he went insane. she reasonable for the attempted murder of her OWN father and kits. she's a monster.

What did she do! She never broke the code! This makes no sense

I think you're right she should be in the dark Forest

Miststar is a weird ashfur fan. I like ashfur a bit but I also hate him.

14 Gritclaw

Gritclaw had some dirty claws, in the end, he made people lick them, so he is bad, the end.

Umm... Who?!

OMG hahaha

Who now?

15 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 a bright flame-colored tom with emerald-green eyes.

He did destroy Scourges dream of getting the smallest bit of respect and could have let him be a respected warrior. It’s his fault in a way. Manly his siblings though.

This cat should definitely not go to the dark forest because he is a strong cat and proves himself that he will do anything to save his clan and always follows the warrior code and was the best clan leader.

I don't see why he should be on this list.

I hate him so much, but he still should be in starclan

16 Clear Sky

Clear Sky wanted what was best for his clan, and struggled as a leader. I don't agree with all of his decisions, but I think he is a pretty misunderstood cat. Grey Wing recognized this to the end. I am so glad Grey Wing followed his little brother because without him Clear Sky may have ended up with even more enemies. All leaders make mistakes.

Clear sky is such a boundary-obsessed idiot. If he didn’t love boundaries so much, he would be a pretty good leader. And, he should loath himself because of all the cats that he literally killed.-Shuddertail

I go into details, but he for sure deserved to go!

He exiled Jagged peak so cruel!

17 Miststar

They say everyone (even the good people) on this list should be in the dark forest. Maybe they should try it out and stop being a narcissistic hypocrite.

Lol, I thought Miststar was just the person who was commenting and someone just really hated her.

I agree. Miststar is a hacking in life! How else would she live so long?

Who is Miststar again?

18 Sleekwhisker

Yeah sleekwisker should be here

19 Foxheart

Foxheart was really annoying and I hate her. I know she probably dosen’t deserve to go to the Dark Forest but she was really cruel towards Yellowfang and I LOVE Yellowfang.

Her name suits her she’s a fox heart


20 Bramblestar


People, if u didn’t know, he killed hawkfrost to save firestar. Hawkfrost was planning to do something evil. So Bramblestar/claw had to stop him. So how is Bramblestar even on here?

He killed his brother to defend his clan and to avenge hollyleaf

He killed his brother, definitely deserves

21 Dovewing Dovewing is a character in the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. She has light grey fur with Amber, green, or blue eyes. Her first appearance is in the fourth arc, know as Omen of the Stars, in the book The Fourth Apprentice. She was part of the Power of Three, and her power was to hear and see things ...read more.

She never even laid a paw in the DF, and didn't kill anyone. She might be annoying in some peoples' opinions, but she doesn't belong in the DF.

Why? May I ask is Dovewing on here? She did'nt do something bad. Sure she broke the code by falling in love with Tigerheart but some cats break the code every once in a while.

I mean I don't like her but not so much that she needs to go to the DF. She didn't do anything like super terrible except betray her mate, but that happens in the Warrior world and in the human world

She dosen't deserve to go to the dark forest, she was in place of hollyleaf and she was really anoiying as a kit and paw but no.

22 Scourge

Scourge actually COULDN'T go to the Dark Forest. After he was killed, since he didn't believe in StarClan, Place Of No Stars and all that jazz, he just went 'poof'. And although Scourge was a menace to many cats, his siblings were the real cause of his evil. If it wasn't for Ruby, Scourge would still be a happy kittypet named Tiny. He doesn't deserve anything better or worse.

Scourge should have gone to the dark forest not for killing Tigerstar, he was evil, but for killing Whitestorm and trying to take over the forest he was just evil.

I'm really out! Scourge did not believe in StarClan, and therefor he couldn't believe in Dark Forest.

My personal favorite, but he wasn't a clan cat so he couldn't go there

23 Ivypool Ivypool is a fictional character created by Erin Hunter for the Book series named Warrior Cats. Ivypool is a slender, soft-furred, pale, silver- and-white tabby she-cat. She has white paws, a white belly and face, white splotches covering her pelt, a striped silver tail, silver tail-tip, sliced ears, ...read more.

?Why and how
But there is a small chance she might, since she went to the DF a lot. Well, I hope she doesn't!

Yeah, what is going on now?


24 SpottedLeaf Spottedleaf is a tortoiseshell she-cat in the series "Warrior Cats" by Erin Hunter. She first appears in book 1, Into The Wild. she was killed by a cat named Clawface.

I mean I do hate her, but it's not really her fault she's so creepy, it's just that fox-heart Thistleclaw who made Spottedleaf think it was okay for her to do that to Firepaw even tho she's eons older than him. She really must've loved him because she tried to trap him in StarClan once, but she figured out it was useless and Sandstorm was his rightful mate because she still has SOME common sense. Don't sentence her to fade in the Dark Forest!

I don't know how to comment without voting for her. But anyways- no. Minor stalking offenses aren't nearly as bad as those of some cats who got into StarClan.
Also, of COURSE she'd be weird around romantic feelings. She was a grooming and possibly csa victim. She was targeted by a hebephile while she was a brand new apprentice of course she'd get her wires crossed

Spottedleaf is not a stalker! She dies a second time to save Sandstorm for Firestar!


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, ...read more.

Come on are you serous who ever put him and firestar hear needs to read the last hope he basically won the whole battle for them. he's such a great cat sweet on the inside but a little hard on the outside should definitely not be hear.

He killed russetfur and trained in the Dark forest.

He has to many chapters. He's annoying

He saved Firestar.
