Ok! We are rating EVERY RiverClan leader! Ok, this gonna be long…
Well the rank is 1 being Hate, and 10 being Love, pretty simple 😛

Riverstar- 9/10
He is friendly, and he legit started my favourite Clan, so I gotta like him. He is also very accepting of other cats joining, and a bit calmer about borders *Cough Shadowstar*. He also started the whole mentoring system, and Warriors isn’t Warriors without some eager, semi-dumb, and curious apprentices running around, is it?

Emberstar- 5/10
We don’t know much about him, but he seems okay and a somewhat decent leader. When he finds out Cloudberry; one of his Warriors is pregnant with kits with Ryewhisker, he doesn’t exile her like Oakstar did to Mapleshade. He also says ‘Sorry’ when his Clan kills another Clan’s warrior, which is rare. He also made one of the best and most important rules of the Warrior-Code; “Do not trespass or hunt on other Clan’s land”, which the series would not be the same without this code.

Darkstar (1)- 6/10
Again, a very minor cat. They must have been very caring and kind, because they made the rule that “elders and kits must be fed first”, so she deserves some credit on being a good leader. Better than another Darkstar I know… (Read on to see her)

Troutstar- 2/10
Honest to StarClan I don’t even have an Opinion on this cat, he did make the code that warriors must have a vigil, but there really isn’t a point for this code in my opinion. So umm yeah… That’s all for you, Troutstar!

Reedstar- 1/10
We legit only know he’s a tom, and he attacked a ShadowClan leader when ShadowClan attacked first, at a Gathering, and that’s not much to go on, if that’s anything to go on.

Ivystar- 1/10
She didn’t even care when 3 WindClan kits fell off a cliff in front of her own warrior’s eyes so well… The only good thing I got for her is name, which is pretty, (and should belong to Ivypool).

Talonstar- No Rating
All we know is that he’s a tom, and a RiverClan leader. The End.

Willowstar- 5/10
Her name is pretty, and was pretty sly and showed some Girl-Power when she insulted Morningstar at a gathering with only him noticing.

Birchstar- 7/10
At first I hated her, but now I’m cool with her. I hated her when I started reading Firestar’s Journey, but by the end I like her a lot, because she apoligized to SkyClan, and even gave Leafstar a life. Also, her pelt is super pretty to me!

Darkstar (2)- 0/10
This was the cat I was talking about. She’s really mean! She turned down poor Mapleshade when she was banished, then watched her kits drowned, while Darkstar’s own warriors watched too, and they could swim! At least Mapleshade tried! She also just let Appledusk stay, when Mapleshade was exiled, and lost everything she loved.

Volestar- 1/10
He was just shown once gossiping with Doestar, and that’s all we ever see of him…

Hailstar- 9/10
I believe he was a very good leader, loyal, brave, and he was fair too. He made Crookedstar a warrior when no other cat thought he could be one, and that’s really nice. He also trusted Crookedstar enough to make him his deputy, then leader, and any cat who likes Crookedstar I like.

Crookedstar- 10/10
Really Kind, loyal, and brave cat. He suffered a hard past when Rainflower neglected him and all, but that never stopped him from becoming a good leader of RiverClan.

Leopardstar- 11/10
She’s my favourite cat, because I just love her courage, ambition, and loyalty to RiverClan. I know most people hate her, but it wasn’t her fault Stonefur died, she had no idea what Tigerstar’s true intentions were.

Mistystar- 7/10
I like her… but can she please just die already?

Thanks for Reading! Tell me your thoughts in the Comments!

  • Great article! I love crookedstar too! \\|\\|\\|

    Volestar gossiping. lol

  • I loved this article! I also like Leapordstar too, and can’t wait to read her super edition!

  • Mistystar used to be my favorite RiverClan leader, until she BANISHED HARELIGHT AND ICEWING FOR FIGHTING AGAINST THE IMPOSTER EVEN THOUGH THEY FOUND OUT THAT THEY WERE RIGHT TO, BECAUSE MISTYSTAR COULDN’T TAKE HER CATS NOT OBEYING HER EVERY COMMAND, EVEN IF THEY DISOBEYED FOR THE RIGHT REASONS! Mistystar had better apologize and let them back in if she wants to get back up there, and then save Squirrelflight, or Hollyleaf’s spirit, or Ivypool, or another one of my favorites. But I really don’t like Leapardstar because even if Tigerstar was tricking her, she should have known better than to order the death of her own deputy, just because of something he couldn’t help and that Tigerstar said so. Before then, I’d always thought of her as more independent than that. And two apprentices, too! APPRENTICES! I mean SERIOUSLY, Leapardstar? But I agree with you on this…Ivystar for ThunderClan! Ivypool has done so much for her Clan that she deserves leadership! But then Squirrelflight would have to die, but if there was a way that Ivypool could become leader without that happening, that should totally happen. Great article!

  • Firestar’s super edition is actually called Firestar’s Quest 😛
    My favorite RiverClan leader is probably Riverstar or Crookedstar. My least favorites are Darkstar and Hailstar.
    The Story Of Tonight

  • Darkstar (Mapleshade era) should have been one of the three Mapleshade tried to kill

  • this is gonna be a long comment. For me instead of riverclan leaders, i will do all of the cats i can think of and rate them.
    Cinderpelt (52/100. She’s okay, and I just liked her when she was an apprentice. All her curiousness, don’t you just think she’s something? Alright, Tigerstar: -1/100. Really, I HATE HIM SOOO MUCH!!!!! He kills and kills and just killed one of my favorite cats. TIGERSTAR YOU SUCK. Firestar 99/100. I like him, he’s one of my favourite cats, his bravery, loyalty and yeah. Leopardstar joined Tigerstar and Firestar convinced her to not when Tigerstar died. Leopardstar (21-50/100. When Leopardstar joined Tigerstar, I was like, ARE YOU GARBAGE STUFFED WITH ANTS??!!! How could you join that cat with a brain the size of crickets? But when Scourge killed Tigerstar I liked how then Firestar convinced her to leave and reform RiverClan. (Which means the forest will have 4 clans again, actually 5.) Tawnypelt 15/100. Really I hate her. She just decided to leave because Smallear said she would become just like her father. She then was in ShadowClan and mated with a cat who first bullied. Wow, Tawnypelt. You are very dumb.
    Alright, so that’s enough for me. Remember that this is my opinion.
