Worst Warrior Cat Deaths


The Top Ten

1 Willowbreeze

So sad... Mapleshade is evil. She completely ruined Crookedstars life. Give this a thumbs up is you think that in the last book there should have been a scene where Crookedstar kills Mapleshade.

I forgot about that death! SAD SAD SAD! Although this was sad, I think Mosskit's death was so so sad as well, because Bluestar already lost, like EVERYTHING, and right then was a really bad time, because she was giving up her other kits. But I can't believe had bad Crookedstar had it. Why is it always the great leaders who have horrible lives?

Willowbreeze did have the WORST death ever! My eyes were watering when she died:(:::::: - yellowfang55

It wasn't Mapleshade's fault, cats in the Dark Forest don't have that power, if they did the Last Hope wouldn't exist(I like this future.) Mapleshade convinced Crookedstar it was her fault so he felt like it was his fault for trusting her. Though I have to admit Willowbreeze's death was still very sad, even if some of her fans make me rant.

2 Hollyleaf 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 .

I want Hollyleaf back. She was smart, resourceful, caring, kind, brave, and just all around epic. She was a ninja, a leader, just beast! I cried for so long... (to make matters worse, I was reading it at school... )

Hollyleaf's death was one of only two book character deaths that have ever made me cry. I was also reading it in school when it happened. People probably looked at me funny.
Hollyleaf may have killed a cat, but she was amazing. I couldn't believe that they just killed off such a great character.

*SPOILER ALERT! * Poor Hollyleaf should have not died I hate Hawkfrost for killing her she thought she was part of the prophecy and she was not THAT CRUSHED HER! :( At least she was protecting Ivypool...

I wish Hollyleaf wouldn't have died! Her kits would be so cute if she has mated with Fallen Leaves!

3 Cinderpelt Cinderpelt A medicine cat from the book series Warriors by Erin Hunter. She heals other cats in her Clan, ThunderClan, and is reincarnated into Cinderheart.

Cinderpelt's death was so sad. I cried and cried for the whole night when I read it. However, I like how she died saving the queens. She was so nice and brave and... Oh, I just can't believe she died!

-E. L. K.

That was so sad. I was already in tears when starclan told her her fate, but when she really died, now that made me cry real, REAL hard. I actually cried at night too...

I was welling up like mad when she died! Poor cinderpelt she already had a broken leg and now starclan decided her fate... and it turned out bad, REALLY bad...

Cinderpelt had a really sad death. I love how she died saving a queen, so selfless. Kudos to here. - CinderpeltandCinderheart

4 Yellowfang Yellowfang

STUPID FIRE! Why did she had to die?! She was one of my favorites! She protected her clan... Thunderclan... She did everything she could to save her clan! She gave Cinderpelt another chance! And took over when Spottedleaf died! She helped during Greencough... She killed her own son to protect Thunderclan! Her own clan! She helped Thunderclan... And how she must of felt when Raggedstar died! Yeah she left Shadowclan, but it was because Brokenstar, her son, kicked her out! R.I.P. yellowfang. Poor Yellowfang!

She killed her son an died in a fire. At least StarClan forgave her... -

Yellowfang is just the greatest... I miss her so much, that grumpy wise cat. Her and Cinderpelt were amazing! :(

Poor Yellowfang...I love her. At least she didn't fade permanently from StarClan - RedTheGremlin

5 Honeyfern

Why did she die from a snake.. Berrynose will have grief for her. AND POOR BRIARPAW he's probably guilty for her death

And let's not forget about how torn up Mousefur was, I mean if she hadnt moved away from that area, it would've been her who died. It's even sadder because Berrynose admits his feelings for her, and says that they'll have kits one day. It isn't really Briarkit's fault, since the code says that you cannot neglect a kit in pain or in danger, and she had no idea that the snake was near her. Honeyfern died a noble death, and yes, I think Leafpool should've done something more, given her nettleseed (Goosefeather gave Smallear that when an Adder bit him) or something, instead of just standing there and staring at the reincarnation of Cinderpelt. Not hating on Leafpool, I just think that she should've been more quick to act and not rely on the spirit of her dead mentor.

Briarkit! What have you done?! Not that I hate you, but I felt so sad when Honeyfern died! She was less than a mouse-length away from being her true love's mate! I even remember what she said: "Help me! My blood is on fire! It hurts! Please help me! " And Leafpool didn't do a THING! That's the second time I thought Leafpool was stupid. (First was being mates with that brat Crowfeather and how she had kits)

Honeyfern died just to bring deathberries into the camp! What a stupid reason! Couldn't they have killed a character nobody likes that came into their camp, or maybe a cat saw a snake? I mean, why did it HAVE to be Honeyfern! Now Briarlight probably feels guilty, her family is grieving, and so is Berrynose! I mean, come on! - CinderpeltandCinderheart

6 Tigerstar Tigerstar Tigerstar is the biggest villain in the Warrior Cats, also the cat that Firestar wants to kill . He has two mates, Goldenflower and Sasha, and four kits, Bramblestar, Tawnypelt, Mothwing, and Hawkfrost . After he dies, he goes to the Dark Forest where he is killed again except this time by Firestar ...read more.

This is the WORST death, not the SADDEST. Honestly, he suffered the most in his deaths, more than any other cat. I mean, come on, he died 9 times over! It was so gruesome, even Firestar was sickened and could hardly bear watching! No matter how sad anyone else's death was, it wasn't as gruesome. - Splashstorm

These are the top ten WORST deaths (not saddest) deaths in my opinion
1. Tigerstar his nine lives were all ripped out with one blow from scourge. I was so happy I laughed. He deserved to die like that.
2. Raggedstar all nine lives ripped out at once by brokenstar I was really shocked when I read yellowfang's secret.
3. Brightsky died while giving birth, three of her kits were stillborn. I feel really sorry for leaporadstar, being the only kit to survive. She never got to see her own mother or siblings.
4. Silverstream died giving birth. I cried when she died.
5. Feathertail died from a fall off a 40 foot cave roof. She died saving crowfeather from a mountain lion. It was so sad!
6. Honeyfern bitten by a snake. Berrynose was devastated.
7. Snowkit carried away by a hawk. He was deaf, and he was only a kit!
8. Swiftpaw killed by dogs. At least he died the honorable death of a warrior, saving his clanmate.
9. Brokentail died from deathberry poisoning. The scene ...more

Oh, gosh, I LOVED this death! Well, it scared the crap out of me, since I was reading it at night at a younger age (around eight...? ) and I thought Scourge was stalking me, but Scourge is now my favorite cat, and this is my least favorite cat. Worst death anyone should have to suffer, though.

Keep in mind, this list is the WORST deaths, not the saddest deaths. How is loosing all your lives at once not the worst?

7 Bluestar Bluestar Bluestar is a character in the Warrior Cats series. She one of the leaders of ThunderClan. She is mates with Oakheart of RiverClan and her kits, Stonefur and Mistyfoot, live in RiverClan

When Bluestar died, she had gone mad. She only felt joy in her very last seconds of life, which is really, REALLY depressing. Her kits forgave her, but she KNEW that they were pretty much being forced to do so. She couldn't have died happily... Which is a pretty depressing thought, especially because she was my favorite character. Also she's better then Firestar COUGH COUGH COUGH

Bluestar had a hard life, and did not deserve to die. She lost so much... I hate Tigerstar for what he caused. And I agree, she's better than Firestar. I'm not one to get emotional over books or movies-I have never cried over one in my life, but I can easily understand why others cry during Bluestar's death.

She was the first leader we met, the one who introduced us to the idea of Clans and warriors. She let Rusty into the Clan and led him to a path of greatness, and she died saving him! She died saving her Clan, but was determined and strong enough to stay alive to say goodbye to her kits. She was an amazing cat, though she had her ups and downs, she was truly a leader to look up to.

8 Rainflower

She was so mean to Crookedstar! She should have been proud! Her death was sad though ans I wished that in the end she could love Crookedstar for who he is.

I hate Rainflower for just abandoning Crookedstar like that when he was a kit just because of his looks. But NO cat deserves to die

What would you do if your mother rejected you? Rainflower is so mean to crookedstar. If I was him I wonldn't like her

To tell the truth I hated rainflower. This death was sad but did not make me cry at first but I herd a fact that during crookedstars nine lives rainflower wanted to give crookedstar a life but starclan told her no because of the way she treated crookedstar so sad

9 Firestar 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

HIS DEATH WAS SO SAD! HE FINALLY DEFEATS TIGERSTAR AND THEN HE DIES! But that wasn't the worst part. What was REALLY sad was that he didn't get to say goodbye to Sandstorm, his mate who he truly loved with all his heart. She was the first to reach his dead body but it was too late. I would like to think he had some sweet last words for her: maybe "I love you, Sandstorm. I will always watch over you. Goodbye, my love. " Or at least he could say something short like " I will wait for you forever, Sandstorm". But NO. He had to be already dead when she reached him! Well at least he'll see her in StarClan!

SPOILER ALERT SPOLIER ALERT SPOILER ALERT he dies in the last hope when he defeats tigresses and then lightning strikes a tree lighting it on fire and when the smoke cleared he was dead OH MYSTERIOUS!

I think this is a rip off, Because she killed the one that started the books and the main character. He shouldn't have died. though then their wouldn't be an ending other then killing Graystripe.

This. Is. By. Far. The. Worst. Stupidest. Death. In. The. Books. LIKE WHATT?! Ok ok. Please don't mind me if I seem to hate Firestar a bit, because I do, (guys, admit it, he's lamee) but really. Yay, our 'great leader' just killed Tigerstar! Oh no, he got struck (almost struck) by lightning! (which by the way shouldn't have happened unless by the will of StarClan, becuase blah blah blah science they're in a hollow other things should've been hit instead) and then MYSTERIOUSLY, oh no! Our 'great leader' is dead! He's such a hero! Died such a heroic death! Struck by lightning by the will of StarClan only he didn't get struck, just almost, but he died anyway! UM EXCUSE ME, WHAT?!

10 Spottedleaf

I liked spottedleaf alot! its sad she had to die :(! she was the one who told firepaw/firestar fire alone can save their clan and she was the best med cat!

Spottedleaf was the best medicine cat the forest had ever seen! It wasn't fair shje had to die (be MURDERED more like it) but I guess if she hadn't Sandstorm and Firestar would never have got together...

Spottedleaf was so sweet! and now a stupid shadow clan cat murdered... Spottedleaf was so nice, and sounded beautiful. Why do the beautiful ones have to die D:

Why is she here? Her death in the Battle of Dark Forest was sad, but not the WORST! If you ask me, the most sickening is Tigerstar's

The Contenders

11 Hailstar

Hailstar was an epic Riverclan leader, if you read the super editions you would know. He got killed in a stupid way, and they barely even mentioned him in the books! It's just like two cats from a different clan say something about Crookedstar that indirectly refers to Hailstar!

I know right? And also my name is really similar to Hailstar's

Yes, he died doing his job...

The death itself wasn't overall sad. The little conversation and how Crookedjaw reacted were what got me sad. :(. CURSE YOU RATS!

12 Feathertail

My friend took a test on me, to see if I cried about Feathertail
So there I was, trying to think of happy things, but it was so hard! I was depressed for the whole day, and when feather tail said her death sentence, the tears started to flow. I am actually in tears as I am typing this. WHY DID FEATHERTAIL DIE!

Honestly I think that Feathertail is the saddest death. I almost cried when I read it. And having Crowfeather/Paw there too was even worse. She's the number one saddest death to me. I know it was sad that Cinderpelt died but I think she shold have tol cats about her dream. So I vote Feathertail.

I was so sad when she died. She was so awesome! Her personality was so, well, like, great. She could have been my best friend if she was human! She shouldn't have died so young. I cried all day after she died, and not many things make me literally cry. I feel so sad for Crowfeather, too. They would have made the perfect pair!

Why is Feathertail not higher up? She had a really sad death, where if I remember correctly, Crowfeather confessed his feelings for her! And she didn't even get to say goodbye to her friends, or her dad! - CinderpeltandCinderheart

13 Silverstream

She never knew her kits! Down with GrayxMillie, up with GrayxSilver!

grystipes first love and she just had to go to starclan. why erin hunter (sniffle) WHYYYYY!

Graystripe's first love! Died giving birth to Feathertail and Stormfur! Shame... -

Tigerclaw is a jerk. He didn't even care when Silverstream died! He was all like
"What is going on? " And she should've lived!

I wish you got to meet Redtail because he sounds like a very interesting character

stupid Tigerclaw he was such a jerk he never deserved Bluestar's trust

I HATE Tigerclaw! Cold-blooded murderer... -

I wish I had gotten to know him better. Redtail seemed like a very noble and wise cat.

16 Thistleclaw Thistleclaw

I wonder how sad snow fur is because thistleclaw is in the dark forest and she's in starclan. Must be rlly sad for her especially what thistleclaw tried to do with whites torn when he was a kit! Thistleclaw is a bad father

Actually, she didn't chase him out,
That was a joke by Vicky, haha

Ummm how DID Thistleclaw die exactly?

For star clans sake! He's not evil
Just a bit arrogant and aggressive

17 Brokentail

Err I think his death wasn't sad even if the thought his own mom killing him is sad I thought he deserved it...

He was my favorite villain, and it was sad to leaf my twisted tail cat leave. His death is also sad for the people that were so close to him COUGH COUGH yellowfang

Brokenstar death was sad, but he seriously deserved it. Then when it was his time to die he then finds out his true mother:-(

This is a list of WORST deaths, Not saddest.

18 Brightsky

I loved this cat! I am sad that she died

I completely forgot about this death! It was so sad, there's something with Riverclan queens and giving birth that kills them.

So sad! Brightsky died giving birth to her KITS! I can't imagine how mudfur felt

19 Minnowkit

How did she/he die

She died from greencough also lived less then one moon (Poor cats sometimes I wish greencough never ever existed)

20 Oakheart

Poor Bluestar was crushed when she found out. He was a great warrior and deputy that was dedicated to his clan.

I feel horrible for Crookedstar, learning that his own brother was crushed by rocks. Why did Bluestar believe Tigerstar (Tigerclaw at the time)'s story? Surely she'd know he wouldn't just outright kill Redtail. Shame on her.

He was killed by sneaky pebbles. You naughty pebbles, you!

Oakheart was a great warrior and deputy. Though his mate broke the warriors code and she had beautiful kits, but one died on the journey to Riverclan.
