Jayfeather: Is he Really as Great as Everyone Says? by Littlewhisper

Littlewhisper shares their opinion on Jayfeather.

Hello, hello! I apologise for any inaccuracies, I’m new and I haven’t read Warriors for a while! Alright, now that’s out of the way, let’s get down to business.
In all honesty… I hate Jayfeather. Okay, ‘hate’ might be the wrong word to use. I dislike him, I just don’t feel indulged with him as the series went on. His grumpiness grew tiring to me, and I felt like his powers and blindness were pushed to the side and only used when the plot called for it. He can read minds, so why didn’t he predict Ashfur’s murder? Why couldn’t he pick up Hollyleaf’s emotions? Well, then again, they didn’t spend much time with each other, which brings me to my next point.
I feel like Jayfeather was disconnected from all the other characters, like as Power of Three and Omen of the Stars progressed, he just drifted away from everyone else. Why didn’t he (or anyone else for that matter) tell someone he and his siblings had nearly be murdered by Ashfur? Why didn’t he try to tell someone about Leafpool and Squirrelflight, if he no longer cared for them? Was it because he was worried that no one would believe him, or something along the lines of that? If I remember correctly, no one acknowledged what happened in the fire, apart for Hollyleaf, who decided violence was the only way to solve it.
Speaking of which, Jayfeather just seemed… mildly shocked when he found out his sister, the she-cat he knew his entire life for upholding the warrior code, for caring for the other cats of her clan, murdered someone in favour of her mother, whom the now Three despised. He thought about it for a moment, then went back to complaining, and go around his life like nothing happened.
Honestly, Jayfeather just did what the plot asked, and when there was filler between the important chapters, he just moped about and thought about things. He spent barely any time with his family, and didn’t set out to do anything. It was like reading Bluestar’s Prophecy all over again.
Hence, why I feel like Jayfeather is overrated. I can’t think of anything else to say at the moment, and I will write an article about my opinions on Hollyleaf. Thank you for taking your time to read this, I really appreciate it! Good bye, now!

BEFORE I READ:No. He’s not. HES BETTER!!!!
AFTER I READ:Oh my god, you have NO POINT!!! In OoTS, he was the only interesting character. Lionblaze only cared that Cinderheart didn’t love him, or was conflicted, and Dovewind spent her time wishing she was a ‘normal cat’ and ‘Ivypool cared about her’

Whatever you say, he is the GREATEST!!!

My opinions on the Three:
Hollyleaf cares about everything.
Jayfeather doesn’t care about anything.
Lionblaze is oblivious to everything except Cinderheart.
I like Jayfeather because he is a unique character.

Aw… why can’t you think that?
Jayfeather is my favorite cat nose to tail, and he will always be.
He is very important in the series, which, without him, wouldn’t at all be good to read anymore.
His grumpiness, blindness… only makes me like him more.

Jayfeather is one of the only characters in warriors that isn’t constantly positive. I mean it is good to have a change in character.

I like Jayfeather because he is interesting. The truth is that people (and cats) aren’t always super duper nice. But I think after a while, he was written way worse than he was before. He actually had some character development, but most of that was thrown away in vision of shadows. I like him because many of the other characters don’t have a complicated personality at all.

I really love Jayfeather, because he is unique. His blindness makes it even more interesting. and I love how grumpy he is. I like your powers too. He’s not my favorite character, but I still love him.

Your powers point I disagree with, how many times did dovewing use consistently? Didn’t she have the power to like read emotions too? She uses that once. Lionblaze does NOTHING with his powers NOTHING. I think he was the best out of the three (but I also just don’t like Lionblaze or Dovewing) I think it was nice to have a cat that didn’t always take the best out of every situation.

No, I’m pretty sure Dovewing only had enhanced hearing. Any “emotion reading” could have just been from her noticing quirks and tones in other cat’s voices that others don’t normally notice.

Really? Wasn’t that Lionblaze who went like this to Crowfeather? Here: “Get out of my way!” Then Lionblaze attacks Crowfeather for not getting out of his way. Or something like that. Point is, he did do something with his powers.

ARGH! I’m on fire right now!! FROSTCRYSTAL CALM DOWN! THAT IS HER/HIS OPINION. Ok, breathe. So I love Jayfeather cause he’s blind, thats an obvious reason he’s really grumpy. Jayfeather’s so grumpy, and that’s why I love him. He has a soft heart inside! He just a rough childhood! I mean he’s blind, he couldn’t become a warriors, his mother was a medicine cat, and he can’t have Half Moon (although.. HELLO JAYFEATHER, WHO LIKES HALF MOON?? *blows raspberry* BRIARLIGHT ON THE OTHER HAND….). So, what I’m saying is…

JAY IS BAE! lol yes he is Kiddin’
Jay’s amazing!!
