I’m back with another ranking. This time, I’m with the medicine cats. Again, this is my opinion, feel free to tell me your opinions in the comment section. Enjoy!
Spottedleaf (10) A kind, loving cat. She gave her life to save kits from Brokenstar’s treachery, and then died for the final time saving Firestar’s mate Sandstorm from Mapleshade. Many may hate her for trying to steal Firestar from Sandstorm, but in the end, she saved her. That is heroic.
Cinderpelt (9) A bright, caring cat that never lost her energy and enthusiasm. Even after she broke her leg in a trap that was meant for Bluestar. She understood why Leafpool left, and was able to cope with the knowledge that she was going to die later that book.
Yellowfang (9) She never stopped caring for whatever clan she was in. She tried to save kits from Brokenstar in ShadowClan while they were in battles, and in ThunderClan when Clawface killed Spottedleaf and ran away with the kits. Yellowfang tracked them down. She also saved some cats from the fire that burned through the forest. She was always loyal.
Jayfeather (9) Jayfeather may have had a rough start knowing that he had to be a medicine cat, but that helps make him, him. He has the best remarks/ retorts, yet is still kind to the cats that he is caring to. The ThunderClan cats find it empty when Jayfeather isn’t being his grumpy self.
Alderheart (8) I really like how Alderheart cares for Twigpaw and Violetpaw(Shine) when they were in ThunderClan. Always checking in on them and playing with them when they were kits. Alderheart himself seems to receive a few too many prophecies, he’s like the new Firestar, except Firestar is the best and nobody can replace him.
Pebbleheart (8) Pebbleheart always took care of his foster father after Gray Wing suffered after the fire. He always knew what herbs to use. On Gray Wing’s death bed, Pebbleheart was able to confirm the names for all of the groups (Gray Wing should have been Graystar). He was also commonly described as a smart cat that had dreams from StarClan (I think it was StarClan, or it was the Tribe of Endless Hunting). I haven’t read anything about him but Dawn of the Clans, so he may have other amazing parts, but that is all the evidence I have.
Leafpool (7) Leafpool shouldn’t have run away, especially with a cat from another clan, (Kind of reminds me of Dovewing and Tigerheart), but she came back and knew that it was a mistake to have left, and tried to make up for it by working harder. I felt bad for her when her kits wouldn’t talk to her after they found out that she was their mother.
Goosefeather (7) It wasn’t his fault that he went insane. Everywhere that he went, there was a StarClan cat cutting off his path. Sure, it was funny and cute when he knew where his siblings were hiding, but of course, it eventually made him go insane, knowing prophecies that won’t even be fulfilled in his lifetime. Poor Goosefeather, he wouldn’t kill a sibling on purpose.
Echosong (7) Echosong was a strong cat that was able to learn relatively quickly from what Sandstorm had to teach her. She lead her Clan through hard times and was able to treat most diseases, yet she wouldn’t give up with possible solutions. Too bad she didn’t make it to the lake.
Puddleshine (7) I don’t know about him. I gave him a seven because he had to do a lot of work, and was pressurized with multiple hard decisions and consequences (The loss of Tigerheart, the turn of ShadowClan to Darktail’s “kin”). The issue was, he wasn’t chosen as a medicine cat. StarClan sent no sign, and Leafpool was left with a rather clueless kit. He has a cute name though! (Puddlekit, Puddlepaw,Puddleshine)
Barkface (7) Barkface was seen as a fun, smart kit from Tallstar’s point of view. He cared for his clan and was almost always there for Tallstar, even when he ran away.
Runningnose (6) Runningnose had to lose his mentor early after Brokenstar framed Yellowfang and kicked her out of the clan, leaving the clan in the hands of Runningnose, who turned out to be a great medicine cat.
Flametail (6) Flametail had a short life after falling into ice cold water without Jayfeather being able to help him. Jayfeather was then falsely accused of murder, and Flametail was brought to StarClan and was forced to tell the medicine cats that Jayfeather tried to save him.
Kestrelflight (6) It seems like all of the medicine cats had to endure hard times. Kestrelflight wasn’t allowed to share tongues with StarClan when Onestar closed his borders, and had to endure the suffering of losing a cat to the dark forest.
Littlecloud (6) Littlecloud… I don’t know much about him, (He wasn’t really a major character), but he had to go through the trouble of losing his only apprentice (Flametail) and then dying without a replacement. Causing Leafpool to become the ShadowClan medicine cat.
Mothwing (6) Mothwing is full of problems. She doesn’t believe in StarClan, and I think she was improperly made a medicine cat from Hawkfrost telling/ sending a sign that Mothwing should be a medicine cat. Without a relationship with StarClan, who are you?
Hawkheart (2) You are a mean medicine cat! You murdered a cat and found it okay! You scared Bluepaw because… I’ll stop myself before this article gets removed for inappropriate language, but I really, really hate him.
Like always, if I missed someone and you want the amazing Spottedheart to rank them on the Spotted Scale! (Like the name?)
Thank you for reading! If you found my first three articles boring, stay tuned because I’ll soon be out with a completely different, more interesting article (Hint Hint: It’s about my favourite medicine cat and my favourite leader. Basically the two people that make up my name! Until next time, may StarClan light your path!

    I also disagree with Yellowfang.
    Yellowfang was one of the worst medicine cats ever. Yes, Brokenstar drove her out, but it was her own fault. By extension, so was Tigerstar taking over SC (because if Raggedstar had still been alive then he wouldn’t have been able to), and WC being driven out. She broke the medicine cat code, and then instead of giving up her position as a medicine cat to take care of him as her son, she gave him to Lizardstripe, who never wanted him.
