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.

    I completely agree with Violetshine, Mapleshade, and Hollyleaf . Not Thistleclaw, though, all he did was battle and yearn for power and all he wanted with his Clan was to have control. He deserved the Dark Forest, honestly.

    I agree! I only slightly disagree but overall agree with Thistleclaw.

    I agree with all of this except Thistleclaw he is just bad, just bad.

    Violetshine, Mapleshade, and Hollyleaf, yes. But Thistleclaw… not so much. 😛 Nice article, though!

    I agree with all of them! Even though Mapleshade went insane in the end, she was still a great warrior. Thistleclaw was a great warrior as well, but he did have a little too much ambition for his own good.

    I agree with you (beside the Thistleclaw part 😉)! In fact, Mapleshade, Hollyleaf and Violetshine are on my favourite characters list 😆! Nice article 😸!

    Awesome article, Rain!! YES HOLLYLEAF IS AMAZING!!! 😍😍 And Mapleshade for the win!! I really want to experience/know more about Thistleclaw’s character more so I can actually have a true opinion on him (I still haven’t read Bluestar’s Propehcy).

    I think you’re confusing “recognition” with “goodness.” Violetshine gets plenty of recognition already, and even from inside the book, where in SS she comes to the ThunderClan camp after Needletail dying and they’re like ” you’re a hero Violetpaw!” And Thistleclaw and Mapleshade definitely get enough recognition already. Also, I love Hollyleaf :3

    I agree with everything but thisleclaw

    he threated bluefur that’s why she was mean back she may have never liked him but she was never mean before he was mean to her. He also manipulated spottedleaf into loving him when it was made clear he didn’t really. and other things I cant think of right now

    Great article! (GO HOLLLYLEAF!!!!! 😀 )I agree with everything except Thistleclaw…like everyone else here. Your article came out right after one saying how bad Thistleclaw was 😛

    andy's coming!!

      Super cool! I really like Violetshine. Go Violetshine!! And go Hollyleaf!!

      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 that“”[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.”

        He almost murdered a cat with Tigerpaw.
