My Top Ten Favorite Warriors; by Sparrowpaw


Sparrowpaw discusses their favourite cats of the franchise.

Hello, BlogClan! I’m very new to this forum, so please cut me some slack on my first article! Anyway, here goes!Cinderpelt

10, Whitestorm:

When I first started this book series I immediately fell in love with Whitestorm. He was such a wise and intelligent charecter, it was almost impossible to not like him. Whitestorm showed leadership and courage in the battle between ShadowClan and ThunderClan in “Into The Wild”. But, what I like most about him is his loyalty to ThunderClan, which he proved many times in the first series.

9, Bluestar:

Bluestar was such a devoted and strong charecter. Not only was she an amazing leader, but she was passionate and loyal to her clan. I have to admit, I was very annoyed when she became crazy after “Forest of Secrets”, but besides that, I love every aspect of her. In addition to being an amazing charecter, Bluestar has a great backstory and is very well written. She faces tough decisions and times of grief in her Super Ediion, “Bluestar’s Prophecy”, which makes her an even better charecter.

8, Yellowfang:

Ah, Yellowfang. The first time I read “Into The Wild”, I thought Yellowfang was a spoiled old cat. But after re-reading the book, and finishing the series, I have grown to love this charecter. Yellowfang has a horrible back story along with plot-twisting secrets. You always know something interesting will happen when she’s around, but that’s not entirely why I love her. She’s grumpy, true, but she is fiercely loyal to those she cares about, and very tough when she needs to be.

7, Sagewhisker:

I bet you didn’t expect this one to show up on the list, huh? Well, Sagewhisker is in fact one of my favorite cats. In fact, Sagewhisker is possibly my favorite medicine cat (besides Cinderpelt, but we’ll talk about her later). I love Sagewhisker because of how understanding and sweet she is. She is such a calm and wise charecter, which I totally love. She fully supported Yellowfang, even when she found out her apprentice was having kits. I was devastated when she passed away, because she had grown to be a charecter I cared about.

6, Crookedstar:

Oh, wow. I can’t express how much I love Crookedstar. His Super Edition, “Crookedstar’s Promise” was probably my favorite out of the Super Editions. He is such a strong cat, and it makes me love him even more after all he has been through. He has such an amazing backstory, and I was pulled into every second of his book. I love how even when he was injured as a kit, he pushed on and stayed standing. Crookedstar’s was a great leader, too. He was a bit too protective of his daughter, Silverstream, but I can’t blame him for that. Anyway, onto the next cat!

5, Lionheart:

Ahh, Lionheart. He was such a loyal and devoted cat. If I had to pick a warrior cat to be my best friend, I would pick this guy. Lionheart as an apprentice was funny, exciting and hyper. Even though he kind of annoyed Bluepaw (salty Bluepaw), I still love him. Once he became a warrior, it seemed he matured a ton. He wasn’t a jumpy apprentice anymore. No, he was a wise and strong charecter. I was so sad when he died in the first book. It would’ve been great to see him in the following series.

4, Brackenfur:

Brackenfur was not known to be a main charecter, but I absolutely adored him. He was a loyal, brave and caring warrior. If I had to pick a role model for the apprentices, I would pick him. Even thoUgh he was never picked for any leadership position, I think he would have done great. Perhaps even better than… Brambleclaw (*Hides behind a chair* Please don’t hurt me Brambleclaw lovers). In addition to Brackenfur being totally awesome, he was a sweet mate and loving father.

3, Cinderpelt: Cinderpelt is the perfect example for a medicine cat. Even though she wasn’t actually meant to be one, I think she is one of the best in warriors history. Caring, brave, devoted, sweet, wise, and intelligent, Cinderpelt has all of the characteristics any medicine cat could have. Even though she had feelings for a special somebody, Cinderpelt ignored her feelings and followed the code, which is amazing concidering every medicine cat has fallen in love. Anyway, all in all, Cinderpelt rocks.

2, Tigerstar: Okay, please don’t hate me for ranking Tigerstar #2..! I only did this because I think he was a truely well developed charecter who had a purpose behind his actions and who had a great backstory. Tigerstar is the perfect example for a good villain (along with Scourge, who didn’t make this list but was close). Anyway, that’s all I gotta say about him.

1, Graystripe: Graystripe! My absolute favorite cat! Graystripe is so funny, loyal, brave and kind. He covers it all. I find it impossible for anybody to dislike him! The only thing I don’t like about him is: Why. Did. You. Take. Millie. As. Your. Second. Mate. Anyway, besides from that, Graystripe is such a good charecter! He has such a great sense of humor, and was truely a loving father. Honestly, I would have preferred if he had stayed deputy rather than Brambleclaw. (*ducks as a flying tomato is thrown*).

So, yeah! That’s my first blog. Please comment and tell me your thoughts!

Fan Articles


  • I love Whitestorm, Yellowfang and Brackenfur! Graystripe and Lionheart are great too. But I have to disagree with Sagewhisker and Bluestar. Sagewhisker was, I think, a very lonely medicine cat, and she manipulated Yellowfang into being her apprentice. She said she couldn’t be a warrior because of her power and that there was no other way. But the first thing she did when Yellowfang became her apprentice? Taught her how to ignore her power! Which showed that she was lying, and Yellowfang could have easily had a better life. And don’t get me started on Bluestar. I know she had a hard life! But so did almost all the Super Edition characters! Did they spend the rest of their lives whining about it? No! And except for him being arrogant, Bluestar had no reason to hate Thistleclaw. I never liked BlueXOak, it always just seemed there for plot purposes. And I feel so sorry for poor Thrushpelt. And, the clincher, Bluestar DIDN’T HAVE TO GIVE AWAY HER KITS! She could have just TALKED to Sunstar! Or trusted her leader to make decisions! Not run away with her kits in the middle of the night, KILLING one of them, giving them to RiverClan, and then lying to the whole Clan about it. Just for power. And, of course, her going insane. I hated that most of all. The problem was, in Bluestar’s mind, there was only ever room for Bluestar.

    • Good point but Bluestar will always be one of my favorite characters. As for Sagewhisker I think she was just doing what she thought was right.

    • I think bluestar did what was right for her clan… but it is annoying when she is moping around for most of bluestar`s prophecy. Still a really good book, though. And Bluestar will always be one of my favourites. Actually, my favorite characters are thruspelt and crookedstar

    • The Scourge thingy was pretty big. He let his apprentice nearly kill an innocent kit, and then actually got mad at Bluefur when she stopped Tigerpaw from killing him. I’d hate him too after that, and I certainly wouldn’t want him leading anything.

    • The Tiny/Scourge thing is the only reason I’m glad he went to the Dark Forest because Scourge is my favorite cat

    • Ahem… Brackenfur, Thornclaw, Cloudtail, Brightheart, even Bramblestar, were all the first series…

      EDIT: So sorry for sounding rude… 😀

  • Mistlepaw (Misty) (Mistletail) (Mistletoe on Wrong Night/Mistle That Hangs on Doorway Though it Ain't Supposed to Be There On Halloween) says:

    Well, I agree with all of them except for Sagewhisker. Same reason as Jayie, she told Yellowfang that she couldn’t be a warrior because of her power, but as soon as Yellowfang became a medicine cat, Sagewhisker taught her how to ignore the pain to be a medicine cat, proving that Yellowfang could’ve been a warrior after all and Sagewhisker is a hypocrite.

  • Wow. I agree with each of them. I never thought this was possible xD

  • Eh, I disagree with Tigerstar, but mainly agree with everything else. I hate Tigerstar because he pretty much ruined the book for me. He killed the most lovable characters (Also, I have a theory that he actually killed Lionheart). Here are my top ten favorites. 😀

    10. Whitestorm
    He was higher up my list until he stopped Graystripe from helping Firestar being like “THIS IS HIS BATTLE!”, Yea, that made me so angry.
    9. Firestar He was such a kind cat! I loved his personality, and if he did something, he would not stand back to blame himself. He was higher up the list, until he killed Whitethroat. Whitethroat was so cute and innocent! I cried at his death. Worst thing is Firestar showed no sympathy when Whitethroat died. I cried. :'(
    8. Littlecloud He is SO cute! He has been through so much… First, Brokenstar almost killed him and apprenticed him too early, second, he caught a terrible desiese (can’t spell XD), then Firestar killed his friend (he still respected him tho.) and how innocent he is just makes him adorable.
    7. Yellowfang same reason you like her. She is so unique and secretive.
    6. Ravenpaw Alright, he could be higher, but I don’t like the way he matured. I know it is weird, but he was SOO cute when he was shy, jumpy, and said dumb things under pressure! I wish he never left or changed. 🙁
    5. Moonflower She was such a good mother. End of story.
    4. Snowfur She sacraficed herself for her clan, end of story.
    3. Bluestar I LOVED her and she was my second favorite character, until she went into depression and became lazy and sad. (Wow, thanks Tigerstar for killing her and putting her in the power of depression 030)
    2. Feathertail I loved how clever and kind she was! She loves her brother more than anything! I hated it when she died. (Thanks Tigerstar and Sharptooth, you just had to make her life harder by half starving her and killing her. So helpful. ):l)
    1. CINDERPELT! I love her so much! She is wise, playful, kind, serious, and didn’t care when she had to give up her dreams and her love cause of stupid TIGERRRRRSTARRRRRRRRR!!!!! Sorry XD. She didn’t even pitch a fit when Sandstorm and Firestar became mates. instead of being like “I REFUSE TO EVER HEAL YOU AGAIN, AND I HATE YOU!” She was like “Oh, oh well… I mean, doesn’t matter, I’m a medicine cat.”. I adore her. She resits temptation, and never changes her attitude. I just love her. :3

  • Great choices for Warriors. I loved them all for each of their individual qualities. All the cats you named, were very well written which made for great characters for the story. All of them had an endearing backstory that I made me feel for each one of them.
