Hi, I’m Jayleap and I am going to talk about the most underrated warrior cats.

Purdy~ Ahh, good ol’ Purdy. I always loved Purdy and think he deserves more credit, I mean, without him the lake home wouldn’t have been found.

Mousefur~ A grumpy old elder. I quite like her but I prefer Purdy.

Longtail~ Here I am, going on with the elders. But all jokes aside, I love the banter he and Mousefur had. I don’t ship them though.

Darkstripe~ Ok, Ok, I know this is an unpopular opinion but I think he deserves more love. He was an interesting character, because of him, you get to see more of Tigerstar’s cruelty at his own followers!

Sasha~Fine, she wasn’t the best mother but without her, Mothwing and Hawkfrost would have never existed. Speaking of Mothwing…

Mothwing~I see some people say they like her but nobody says that they love her. She is probably my favorite medicine cat tied with Yellowfang.

Princess~Seriously, she is never mentioned after the first arc and nobody talks about her!

Smudge~ Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, talks about how great he is, he is an interesting character and a good friend to Rusty!

Barley~ I think he is the most underrated warrior cat ever! He is a good friend to Ravenpaw, kind, loyal and he tried to warn Ravenpaw about the rouges in the manga. I think more people should talk about him!

Tawnypelt~ Tawnypelt is kind, brave, helpful and deserves to be mentioned more in the books and in general! Plus, her and Brambleclaw have an interesting friendship that I want to see more.

Windstar/Wind Runner~ Ok, fine, I haven’t read DOT but from what I have read of her, she sounds interesting, and I want to learn more about her.

Brook~She is independent, brave, loyal and a strong female character, I wish more people would talk about her!

Jake~Most people talk about Tallstar, and I love him as well but remember that Jake was the one that helped him realize he needed to go back to his home, and be a good cat. (Sorry I love Tallstar’s revenge.)
I’m sure there is lots more underrated cats so feel free to tell me them! That’s it for now, bye!

DOTC is an interesting ARC of Warriors, just some people decides to skip it since it’s a prequel series.

Jake was the father of Scourge, Socks, and Ruby and was friends with Pinestar

Jake. Jake if Firestars father. Jake is Princess father, Jake is Tiny, Ruby, and Socks’s father.
Jake is everyones father.
Jake is YOUR father,
(Sorry in me mums cAr ((idk ur real name, further apology)) for sort of stealing your idea. Though technically I though of that joke just before I saw your comment so… yeah)

Three underrated cats are Brambleberry, (med cat who healed and loved Crookedkit), Badgerfang, (a kit who fought because he was ordered to by Brokenstar and was made a warrior in his moment of death), and Cedarstar,(a very good leader of ShadowClan and was kinder than Firestar in my opinion.)

In my opinion another underrated cat is Spottedleaf. Anyway, I agree with you about Princess and Smudge.

All of these cats are underrated, I totally agree! Especially Longtail, Barley, Jake, and Princess!

Other underrated characters in my opinion include Mosskit, Tadpole, Volepaw, and Brindleface!

Tawnypelt and Brambleclaw are siblings, just incase you forgot that when you said ‘friendship’
