Hello BlogClan! This is Lightningpaw with my second article! Today I’ll be counting down my top ten least favourite warriors, the ones I found most boring or annoying or ones I just didn’t like. Of course this is all my own opinion and it’s fine if you disagree. Spoilers for pretty much all the series and some super editions ahead, including Tigerheart’s Shadow. Also at the time of writing Crowfeather’s Trial and Darkest Night have not come out, so if they prove my points wrong that’s why. Ok, enough babbling, let’s get into the list.

10. Stoneteller (NP-OotS)
For Stoneteller, I don’t really dislike him but I just found him nonsensical. He just didn’t seem to make good decisions and went a bit crazy near the end. First of all he banishes Stormfur and Brook, after he took Stormfur’s advice. He took Stormfur’s advice!! He made the decision to fight the intruders! And yet he still banishes Stormfur when it goes wrong. Then in PoT, he decides, hey, let’s send the Clan cats away for trying to help. He does go back on that, but he’s still not happy. Not to mention the whole I won’t chose a successor thing in OotS. He almost destroyed the Tribe by being selfish.

9. Silverstream
Okay. So just so you know, I really don’t like cats who have forbidden relationships, and Silerstream is one of those cats. As well as the fact she has cliche love at first sight with Greystripe, she is so cocky, saying ooh, I’m the daughter of a leader I do what I like! No you can’t Silverstream, you shouldn’t break the code!(Call me Hollyleaf). She just acts like a little spoiled brat all the time.

Forbidden love number 2. She shows pretty much no love for Firestar while she’s alive, but when she’s in StarClan she suddenly goes gaga for him? In my opinion she really spoiled Fire x Sand by just existing, which in my opinion is a good , well developed ship. She seems so transparent, really only existing as a character to represent StarClan at first and to be Firestar’s first love. Spottedleaf’s Heart did flesh her out a bit though, so that’s why she isn’t lower on the list.

7.Star Flower.
We are now getting into the cats I really don’t like.Star Flower is just in my mind, a deceptive scarlet she-cat. She completely used Thunder in a completely disgraceful manner, and what for? For her murdering controlling father. She also strained the friendship between Thunder and Lightning Tail, which is one of my favourite duos, and when she was at their mercy she begs she actually loved Thunder, only to go off with Clear Sky later. She did make up for it by being a loyal mate for Clear Sky, but she didn’t fully redeem herself.

6. Crowfeather
Crowfeather is just a complete mouse brain. I think the thing that most annoys me is that he has three mates. Three mates!! Two of which broke the code. And none of them except possibly Feathertail were good ships. I have to admit, asking to take her name as a warrior was really sweet. But straight after that, he suddenly goes completely gaga for Leafpool out of the blue! Why?? And then after they run off together, and come back, he does a Star Flower and uses Nightcloud as a reputation repair girl! He’s not really that likeable as a character either, being so grumpy and annoying for no reason. Whatever he says, he doesn’t love Breezepelt, even praising Lionblaze instead of him. Okay, they’re both his sons, but I don’t think he knew that at the time.

5. Billystorm
He’s just annoying. He gets completely in Leafstar’s face, distracting her when she has to focus on leading SkyClan, and makes her feel bad for not paying attention to him. Despite all this, he only leaves his housefolk for her when she kicks him out of the Clan. And why does she kick him out? Because he tries to tempt their kits to become kittypets. He doesn’t deserve a warrior name. I’m with Sharpclaw- he’s a kitty warrior!

Heatherstar is here by a mere technicality. I dont mind her overall character, but she stopped Tallstar from being a tunneller. I really liked WindClan’s tunnellers, but she ruined it completely, and broke Tallstar’s heart and mine.

And the winner of the worst parenting award is ….. Rainflower! At first, she lavishes all her attention on Crookedstar because he’s her ‘ handsome little warrior’. Then as soon as he breaks his jaw, he is nothing to her. That’s just cruel, to eternally punish your kit for one mistake. She changes his name without even asking if he minds, and Oakheart is now her little handsome warrior. Crookedstar needed her support after breaking his jaw, not rejection. It’s no wonder he accepted training from Mapleshade, he thought she believed in him. Rainflower should have rotted forever in the Dark Forest, and Crookedstar should have kept his old name. Stormstar! Stormstar!

Okay. I need to calm and not rant. Let’s see. First of all, she runs off with Crowfeather, completely breaking the warrior and medicine cat codes,and abandoning her Clan when the most needed her. As a result of this, she ends up having kits. Instead of doing the right thing and just admitting to her Clan she was having kits, she decides to lie to all her Clanmates, and use Squirrelflight to make sure no one realises the kits are hers. Then, she and Squirrelflight decide to lie to the kits as well! I forgive Squirrelflight because she has done enough redeem herself but Leafpool hasn’t. Even when the kits find out she’s their mother , she refuses to tell them who their father is!! Dark Forest for you Leafpool!!

Honourable Mentions

Right, Dovewing has so many faults we’d better start at the beginning. So she finds out about her powers, and whines about it. You have superpowers! Oh, how terrible! Then she goes on the quest, and is too blind to see she makes Ivypool annoyed by being so eager to visit Sedgewhisker and Whitetail, which she shouldn’t do anyway, and drags Ivypool into the mix. Another thing; she hasn’t told Ivypool about her powers. Okay, so Lionblaze said tell no-one, but couldn’t she see how understandably jealous she was making Ivypool? If she’d told her, everything would be fine, since Ivypool wouldn’t have told anyone else. It was Dovewing who caused the battle between ShadowClan and ThunderClan, not Ivypool. On to the meetings with Tigerstar(Tigerheart). She betrayed her Clan!! It was exactly the same as the Spottedleaf thing, she kept remembering his sweet breath! Then, she gets with Bumblestripe after Tigerstar betrays her for his Clan. I’m a Bumble x Dove shipper, but that won’t happen now. But then she just floats back to Tigerstar, playing about with Bumblestripe like Star Flower with Thunder! After the battle with the Dark Forest, the Three lost their powers. Jayfeather and Lionblaze were understandably upset, but Dovewing was traumatised. AND YET SHE SAID AT FIRST SHE DIDN’T WANT POWERS!!!!!WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU DOVEWING!!! Okay, on to the events of Tigerheart’s Shadow. She decides to have her kits far far away. Why?? I know she had the dream, but still! Then when they return, it looks like she’s chosen ShadowClan. YOU DISLOYAL TRAITOR DOVEIDIOT HOW DARE YOU BETREAY YOUR CLAN AND IVYPOOL!!!!

Sorry about that. Thanks for reading, and have a great day. Lightningpaw out!

Fan Articles


  • Why does everyone hate Dovewing so much? I love her and I think she’s awesome. How come Graystripe and Leafpool don’t get hate for leaving their clans but Dovewing does? She’s just overhated sadly:(

  • You are completely right, Lightningpaw! Especially about Dovewing, yes. I used to like her, then started souring up to her until she became my mortal enemy. Whiny brat, annoying, selfish, and really, betraying her clan wasnt even the worst part, quite frankly, I dont mind it. Also Bumble x Dove shipper, although Bumblestripe deserved a whole lot better!
