Songs that suit Warriors characters by Willowwing

Willowwing relates some songs to Warrior cats

Hi guys! It’s Willowhawk/Willowstar here, back with another article! This article will be showing you six songs from my playlist of songs that remind me of Warriors characters. I’ll go through the list and explain each one. Please note that some of these songs may be inappropriate for younger readers (no explicit lyrics will be shown).
1. Roxie from the musical Chicago – Sleekwhisker
This song is definitely Sleekwhisker! Just like Roxie, she’s a sassy she-cat who is bored with her ho-hum life and views murder as a way to make a name for herself and to spice up her life. Both characters have no problem manipulating and using others, and they dream of a day when they are famous. The line “that’s cuz none of us got enough love in our childhoods” reminds me of how scorned, unhappy and disrespected Sleekpaw and the other apprentices were before they joined the Kin. “And Sophie Tucker will…I know, to see her name get fiilled below… Roxie Hart!” reminds me of how she wants to be stronger and more powerful than her former friend, Needletail, and be more favored by Darktail than Needletail is. Chicago is one of my favorite movies, and Sleekwhisker is one of my favorite characters!
2. Guilt Tripping by Frank Iero – Dovewing and Ivypool
I love this song so much! It really reminds me of both Dovewing and Ivypool. It makes me think of how they tried to heal and move forward after the Great Battle and make up with each other after being rivals for most of their lives. It’s such a beautiful and low-key song that makes me think of the moment just after a huge fight when everyone is stilll reeling from it and trying to cope. “So many stars in the sky, and I don’t know why they always have to fall on me” is Dovewing being confused as to why StarClan chose her to be part of this world-altering prophecy and how she doesn’t feel like she can handle the weight of that responsibility. “Maybe I’m blind to all of the signs that the world ever wanted me/I’m used to being left behind” is Ivypool feeling like she’s never been special- she’s always been in the shadow of her sister and feels like she was just used as a spy in the Dark Forest and then discarded after. “My body’s weak, gave up on me” can be interpreted both as Dovewing struggling to handle losing her body’s powers and suddenly feeling like her world has shrunk without her superpowered senses, and as Ivypool dealing with her countless injuries and scars (both mental and physical) from the Place of No Stars. “I’ve felt this bad for so long I’m scared I’m fine” is Ivypool worrying that the Dark Forest has changed her and that she’ll never recover from such traumatic events. “We’ve got time to make each other cry” reminds me of the huge fights they had where they just let their rage spill over and ruin their relationship. The rest of the song reminds me of them trying to be better sisters, heal their relationship, and heal themselves.
3. I Don’t Know My Name by Grace VanderWaal – Leafpool
This song is 100% Leafpool! “So I heard you are my sister’s friend, you get along quite nicely” is her talking to Brambleclaw and thinking of his blooming romance with Squirrelflight- she kinda feels sad that her sister gets to have love and she can’t. “I don’t know my name, I don’t play by the rules of the game, so you say” is her feeling lost and without an identity, and like she’s subverting the warrior code (not playing by the rules of the game) by being with Crowfeather. “I went from bland and popular to joining the marching band, I made the closest friends I’ll ever have in my lfietime” is her not following the traditional path of being a warrior and choosing to be a medicine cat instead, becoming friends with the other medicine cats, not doing harm to others, and bonding with Crowfeather. “I am lost, trying to get found In an ocean of people, please don’t ask me any questions, there won’t be a valid answer” is her dealing with the fallout of Hollyleaf sharing her secret with the Clans and trying to repair her life. “I now know my name” is Leafpool finally triumphing over her struggles and finally finding happiness. Also, Grace VanderWaal’s voice sounds just like my headcanon voice for Leafpool when she was a kit and young apprentice! This whole song just radiates Leafpool vibes.
4. Rat by Penelope Scott – Needletail
I don’t even like this song that much, but it’s undeniably a Needletail song. The song’s lyrics reflect Needletail’s entire journey of idolizing Darktail to resenting him and thinking he is evil, and how she feels so used, stupid, and regretful. “You promised to be Tesla, but you’re just another Edison” is her realizing that Darktail promised to be a better leader than the Clans’ leaders, but turning out to be just as bad as the incompetent (but not evil) Rowanstar or the evil Tigerstar. She realizes that although the Clans have problems, destroying them is not the answer, and the Kin are just as bad as the Clans can be, if not worse.
5. Oh No! by MARINA – Leopardstar.
I love this song, and it’s probably the most Leopardstar song ever written! “Don’t do love, don’t do friends, I’m only after success, don’t need a relationship, I’ll never soften my grip” is pretty much her in a nutshell- she doesn’t want a romantic relationship or friends (except for Sunfish) because she’d rather focus on her leadership. “I just wanna change/I know exactly what I want and who I want to be, I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine, I’m now becoming my own self-fulfilled prophecy” is her wanting to change herself and the Clans (her inner conflict in Leopardstar’s Honor), how some cats criticize her for not being very empathetic or friendly, and how she never had a prophecy from StarClan but was told she was special as a kit by Mudfur, so she kinda made her own prophecy for herself.
“One track mind, one track heart
If I fail, I’ll fall apart
Maybe it is all a test
Cause, I feel like I’m the worst
So I always act like I’m the best
If you are not very careful
Your possessions will possess you
TV taught me how to feel
Now real life has no appeal”
these lines are her feeling like there is so much pressure on her and she’ll shatter if she fails; she takes out her internal turmoil on others, and how her alliance with Tigerstar kinda possessed her and made her not think for herself until she broke free of him. The song also encapsulates Leopardstar’s self-absorbed but inwardly good nature.
6. It’s Not a Fashion Statement, It’s a Deathwish by My Chemical Romance – Mapleshade and Ashfur
At last, a song from my favorite band of all time on this list! This song is totally both Mapleshade and Ashfur. It shows how they are both completely obsessed with the cats that they used to be in love with (the way I see it, Ashfur isn’t in love with Squirellflight anymore, he’s obsessed and wants to own her, which isn’t genuine love), and will do anything they can to get revenge on them for ruining their lives, even if it kills them. The first half (especially “promise me that when I’m gone, you’ll kill my enemies”, which can be viewed as Mapleshade’s hallucinations of her kits telling her to kill the cats who wronged her) is Mapleshade, and the second half (especially “the hole you put me in wasn’t deep enough, and I’m climbing out right now) is Ashfur. “I’m taking back the life you stole” reminds me of both of them- they want to reclaim the happy lives of their enemies for themselves by killing Appledusk’s new mate and possessing Squirellflight’s real one. “When you go, just know that I will remember you!” is both of them swearing that they will never forget or forgive how they were supposedly wronged. The chaotic and loud energy of the song just suits them too

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you give these songs a listen if you haven’t heard them before. May StarClan light your path, always! – Willowhawk/Willowstar
