This is an article about why I LOVE Hawkfrost but HATE Tigerstar

Let’s start out with something simple: Why I HATE Tigerstar

So first of all, my favorite cat is actually Scourge and in “The Rise of Scourge”, Tigerstar (Tigerpaw) attacked Scourge (Tiny) and would’ve killed him if it wasn’t for Bluestar (Bluefur) It was Thistleclaw’s fault too though so he’s my second least favorite cat, but this article is about Tigerstar and Hawkfrost, not Thisleclaw.

He did a lot of other bad things too: killing Redtail, attempting to kill Bluestar, luring a pack of dogs into ThunderClan…

He appeared to Hawkfrost and Brambleclaw in their dreams to try and make them evil like him. Brambleclaw ended up staying good, but Hawkfrost sadly turned evil…

But I LOVE Hawkfrost because in “Tigerstar and Sasha #3 Return to the Clans”, Hawkfrost (Hawk) was so cute! But then his older brother Tadpole died which really hurt him. He tried to save him but he couldn’t (I know he was Mothwing’s brother too but this is still only about Tigerstar and Hawkfrost)

In “The New Prophecy” He did do some bad things like tricking Mudfur into taking Mothwing as his apprentice and later attempting to kill Firestar. He tried to make his half-brother Brambleclaw do it though, but it ended up being his own death instead. I am glad that Firestar survived though.

Hawkfrost DID say that he wanted to kill Firestar because Firestar had just let Scourge kill his father so that does sort of make it a little weird that I LOVE Scourge and Hawkfrost but HATE Tigerstar, but Hawkfrost wasn’t even around during Scourge’s time. He also doesn’t know why Scourge killed Tigerstar. Tigerstar is Hawkfrost’s father. He is Bramblestar’s father too but Bramblestar was raised in ThunderClan with Firestar and his mother Goldenflower (until she died)
For Hawkfrost though, he was left in RiverClan with no mother OR father (because Tigerstar is evil and was in the Dark Forest) He did have his clan-mates but they just weren’t enough to make him not evil. I think part of the reason Hawkfrost ended up evil but Bramblestar didn’t was because Hawkfrost had it a little worse than Bramblestar.

He WAS responsible for his decisions though so being evil isn’t justified. He still made bad choices, but he DID have a hard life while Tigerstar was always evil (even before he was apprenticed to Thistleclaw)

On top of all this some other reasons why I love Hawkfrost are because I always make random animations about him singing really funny and cute songs that just make him seem all the more cute and silly.
He also has BEAUTIFUL eyes.

Another thing is just because Hawkfrost is evil doesn’t mean I can’t write my own fanfictions where he’s cute and funny like he is in my animations (I write fanfictions like that about Scourge too)

So there’s why I love Hawkfrost but hate Tigerstar!

    I still hate them both. 😛

    though Hawkfrost does have amazing eyes

  • Okay I actualy don’t HATE any character anymore I find them all interesting/unique in their own ways so I kind of wish I had called this article “Why I like Hawkfrost more than Tigerstar” instead

  • Okay I just reread it and realized so much has changed since then. I actually know more about Tigerstar now and why he was evil and rereading this I realized it doesn’t make much sense XD I’m just going to make a few corections here. Thisleclaw influenced Tigerstar some but I don;t know if he would’ve still been evil if he wasn’t Thistleclaw’s apprentice so I can’t say much about that, but Pinestar left him when he was a kit (though apparently (Possible spoilers for Pinestar’s Choice) Part of the reason Pinestar left was because he didn’t want to have to be the one to kill Tigerstar (his son)) So Tigerstar wasn’t really EVIL until he was apprenticed to Thistleclaw but when he was a kit he did have ambition (though not all ambition is bad) If he HADN’T been Thisleclaw’s apprentice he might have been able to find a way to control his ambition and just be a good warrior like some other good ambitious cats like Whitestorm, but I don’t really know what would’ve happened.
    The reason I still prefer Hawkfrost though is because of some of the things this article already pointed out. He was cute in the third Tigerstar and Sasha manga. He has beautiful eyes. He didn’t kill/attemp to kill AS much cats (though I wouldn’t be able to say the same thing about Scourge) and he just seems like the cool type for some reason which may be why in my fanfictions/animations I like to take out all his evilness and make him cute and funny 😛

    • Beautiful name! Oceanmist……… They really connect to each other/relate to each other. (I’m talking about Ocean and Mist)

  • Yes! Hawkfrost’s eyes are gorgeous! Idk now if I hate or like him. I hate him because he tried to kill Firestar but I like him because he seems really handsome and he had a tough life and what you said is probably why he tried to kill Firestar. I understand that at least. However another reason I don’t like him is because HE KILLED HOLLYLEAF!!!!! But other than that, he is an understandable cat (there was thing that said that he only followed Tigerstar so that at least one parent or some cat would be proud of him).
