Unpopular Opinions by Russetfeather

Russetfeather discusses warrior theories that aren’t very popular

Keep Calm and Warrior CatsAs of me writing this article, I’ve been on BlogClan for a little more than a month. And I’ve begun to realize that a lot of my opinions on cats are unpopular ones. So I decided to list them here. Let’s get started.

1. Goosefeather: Now, if you have ever interacted with me you have probably seen me defending (or obsessing over) Goosefeather. He is one of my favorite characters and I know that is a very unpopular opinion with lots of people here. I’ll be honest, I didn’t like him until I read Goosefeather’s Curse. I thought he was a crazy old badger whose prophecy killed Moonflower. But when I read Goosefeather’s Curse and saw what he went through in his early life, I understand what made him the way he was. I know lots of people don’t think that that justifies what he did but, if I get into that this article will be ten thousand words long.

Moving on…

2. Moth Flight: My feelings on Moth Flight are complicated. I liked Moth Flight’s Vision but I couldn’t connect with her. She was just kind of… bland. When I read the book I didn’t feel any emotion for Moth Flight. I was sad when Micah died, but sad for him, not for Moth Flight losing him. And I had the same feelings when she gave up her kits. This really surprised me. I think Moth Flight is a lot like Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter, and she is by far my favorite character. But, I could not get myself to like Moth Flight. I don’t know how else to explain it.

3. Spottedleaf: I hate Spottedleaf. *dodges keyboards and chairs* I think she is a Mary-Sue. People complain about Dovewing but Spottedleaf is way worse. She appears in Into the Wild, speaks the prophecy, does nothing of importance for the rest of the book, and then dies. Then for the next three arcs, everybody’s like, “Oh Spottedleaf, what do I do? Oh Spottedleaf, thank you for saving me! Oh Spottedleaf, I never loved Sandstorm and the Clans would be so much better if you were here.” (I may be paraphrasing a bit) And then she dies a second time, and everyone that has, is, or will exist in the Clans, mourns her. I never had a problem with her until she became a saving grace for all the Clans. Oh, and don’t get me started on her death. She got to die saving Sandstorm and be honored by all the Clans, while Sandstorm died from re-opening her wound on a fence! There’s also that lovely detail of her dying miles away from her family and Clan.

Anyway, that’s all I’m going to get into right now. I’ll probably do some more at another point in time.
All agreements, disagreements, arguments, and debates welcome!

I just feel her character was really underdeveloped for her to be made into this saving grace of the Clans.

Being a nice and reliable cat doesn’t make her a Mary Sue…She would’ve won the battle with Clawface and Mapleshade if she were one.

Too bad she was a medicine cat and didn’t really know many ‘good’ fighting moves.

Not really. This is the definition of a Mary-Sue: A Mary Sue is an idealized and seemingly perfect fictional character.

It doesn’t matter if she dies or not, Spottedleaf is still a perfect character.

I don’t hate her…. I just don’t like her character. Good to see others agree.

I dunno about your opinion on Moth Flight, I don’t have an opinion on her.

I love Goosefeather!

I am neutral about Spottedleaf. She’s not a Mary-sue, though. If she were a Mary-sue, she wouldn’t have been killed, she would have made her and Firestar work, she’d have powers, and have no bad feelings. That’s not Spottedleaf.

I agree with you on Goosefeather. After reading Goosefeather’s Curse about him, I kinda started to hate Moonflower. As for the others, I respect your opinion.

Agree with everything Russetfeather! Spottedleaf was way too old for Firestar anyway. And Goosefeather’s cool

Oh and I never really connected with Moth Flight either. And same, I was sad when Micah died for him but not for her. Idk why but……

Finally! Someone else who DOESN’T like Spootedleaf!
*Yes, I did a typo on purpose. Now comes the part where everyone stares at me and says “Seriously?”*


What's an iceberg??

Oh Russetfeather, I couldn’t agree more. I hate Spottedleaf. Her “romance” with Firestar was pathetic and she honestly had no point in the book. Yes, she did get the prophecy but any medicine cat could. She had no powers, she was just an ordinary medicine cat who was made a big deal because, let’s be honest, she was “pretty”.

Wow Spottedleaf. What a legend.
