Top 4 Warrior Cats Who Deserve More Recognition (Spoilers!) by Rainstorm257

Rainstorm257 shares 4 characters they think deserve more recognition.

Art by nizumifangs


1) Violetshine- Violetshine is truly a hero amongst the clans. She saved ShadowClan and part of RiverClan from the rogues, and she came up with a rescue plan to save the remaining SkyClan cats who were stuck with the humans. She doesn’t give herself credit because she did let her best friend die, but that was only because there was hardly anything she could do to help. Her sister, Alderheart, Finpaw and a lot of other cats act as though Violetshine is a rank Twigbranch. In the end, Violetshine has done a lot more heroic things than most cats and none of her rescues were in vain.

2) Hollyleaf- Hollyleaf has good ideas and plans that have helped the clans, but Jayfeather, Lionblaze and even Sol get a lot of the credit. She is also strongly looked down upon because she killed Ashfur, but technically Ashfur tried to kill Firestar, Lionblaze, Jayfeather and yes, Hollyleaf. So in a way, Hollyleaf did a deed for the clans, because Ashfur would probably kill some other important cat like Leafpool or Bramblestar. In the end Hollyleaf sacrificed er life for the clans and went on to StarClan’s heavenly ranks.

3) Thistleclaw- Okay, come on, if Ashfur went to StarClan then why didn’t Thistleclaw? I mean before he died Thistleclaw only killed a couple cats, who were already dead and in the Dark Forest. He killed Dark Forest cats, that is kinda the goal for most warriors in the Great Battle. Maybe if Bluestar had treated him better he would be nicer, I mean come on Ashfur is a ruthless murder machine who didn’t actually kill anyone because he wasn’t manipulative enough. Anyway, my point is Thistleclaw wanted to be the best warrior possible while Ashfur wanted to get revenge. Maybe if Snowfur had survived he would have a different destiny.

4) Mapleshade- Mapleshade was a brilliant warrior, in fact she was very much like Bluestar. However, unlike Bluestar, Mapleshade’s Clanmates were fox-hearts. Bluestar had Spottedleaf, Featherwhisker, Thrushpelt, Graypool and Oakheart to help her, while Mapleshade’s medicine cat revealed Mapleshade’s secret, no cat stepped forward as her mate, and Appledusk neglected her and turned her away. Mapleshade deserves more, more than what she was given.

      Yep, that was mine. So I know this is a late comment but I agree with all of them except for Thistleclaw. I mean, no one gave Hollyleaf any credit. Everyone was like, “The three saved the world! Plus Ivypool.” Hollyleaf saved Ivypool!

        (This is a few weeks later, but I’mma add my thoughts anyways)

        Though Ivypool ended up spying for them in the DF after learning about the prophecy, giving them inside information and being able to teach the Clan cats about ways/moves to fight against the DF with. Even if Ivypool died in DF battle and Hollyleaf hadn’t saved her, the Clans still would have won and Ivypool still would have done her spy work. I do like Hollyleaf, and it probably sounds like I don’t, and she does deserve more recognition, but all Hollyleaf’s sacrifice did was allow Ivypool to live longer.

    Ashfur and Mudclaw went to StarClan instead of The Dark Forest because they thought they were following Warrior Code, Thistleclaw However did not and that is why he is in The Dark Forest =^.^=

    • April 20, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      I agree.

      Um, no. Where’d you read that?

      According to Warriors Wikia: Vicky said thatβ€œ”[He] went to StarClan because he was essentially a loyal and well-meaning warrior. He was just driven a bit crazy from unrequited love!”, and also replied that she’d been thinking for a long while about where to send him, and considered the Dark Forest.”

    For some reason I was expecting characters like Longtail and Mousefur. But interesting article I suppose

    I agree with every single one of these cats (except for Thistleclaw, but everyone has their own opinions)! πŸ™‚

    Thistleclaw went to the Dark Forest because he was already training there while he was alive, as revealed in Spottedleaf’s Heart. Other than that, I agree with all of these ^^
