Hi, Lioness here! Today, I will be exploring the topic of Tigerstar I. This cat was a power-hungry and formidable warrior. He killed Redtail to become deputy. He led dogs to kill many cats. He united ShadowClan and RiverClan to take over the forest. Though he was slain by a certain Rogue, what would happen if Tigerstar did take over the forest? What if he became the absolute leader? What would the steps be to make this happen?

Spoilers Ahead!

Part I: Plan Execution

This is a bit tricky due to the sheer amount of things that could be used to make this plan of Tigerstar’s work. Let’s dive in.

Requirements:

I: Tigerstar must get to a position of power. (Leader, Deputy, etc.)

II: The forest must be taken over in some way.

III: No more than a third of Tigerstar’s “obstacles” (Ex: Ravenpaw, Bluestar) can be alive by the end.

IV: At minimum, three cats must die directly from Tigerstar’s actions.

V: Tigerstar cannot let his spirit fade.

Okay, pretty simple, right? Now we can get into what Tigerstar needs to do to be able to become ruler of the forest.

Part II: The Routes

The Simple Route: Tigerclaw becomes the ThunderClan Deputy through killing. On Tigerclaw’s shopping cart, that will mean a few murders including Ravenpaw.

The Mild Canon Route: Tigerstar gets to become the ThunderClan leader by killing the deputies and Bluestar. On Tigerstar’s shopping cart, that will mean training a pack of dogs, killing all witnesses, protecting the dogs from the Gorge, and not getting killed by StarClan as a codebreaker.

The Moderate Canon Route: Tigerstar becomes leader of ShadowClan by fleeing ThunderClan as deputy or leader, killing Nightstar. Tigerstar’s shopping cart, that will mean training the dog pack, killing the deputies, running away to ShadowClan, killing Nightstar if he isn’t dead already, proving himself to ShadowClan, getting appointed Tigerstar, and not getting killed by StarClan as a codebreaker.

The Intense Canon Route: Tigerstar gets to become ruler of TigerClan by killing the deputies, getting a horde of dogs to his command, joining forces with RiverClan and preventing war between LionClan and TigerClan, co-ruling with Leopardstar. On Tigerstar’s shopping cart, that will mean training the dog pack, killing the deputies, running away to ShadowClan, killing Nightstar if he isn’t dead already, proving himself to ShadowClan and getting appointed Tigerstar, not getting killed by StarClan as a codebreaker, convincing RiverClan to join ShadowClan to become TigerClan, prevent a war with ThunderClan and WindClan, and killing all half-Clan cats.

The Co-Ruler Route: Tigerstar gets to rule a hefty half the forest, as well as the twolegplace, with Scourge and Leopardstar, creating an even more powerful TigerClan. On Tigerstar’s shopping cart, that will mean training the dog pack, killing the deputies, running away to ShadowClan, killing Nightstar if he isn’t dead already, proving himself to ShadowClan and getting appointed Tigerstar, not getting killed by StarClan as a codebreaker, convincing RiverClan to join ShadowClan to become TigerClan, prevent a war with ThunderClan and WindClan, killing all half-Clan cats, joining forces with Scourge, convincing Scourge not to go rogue (haha), continue ruling and raiding the twoleg-place to kill kittypets and recruit more rogues, and continue killing those who resist or rebel against TigerClan.

Note for The Dark Forest Route: (I’ll skip ahead and say that Tigerstar was killed by Scourge just now. He wakes up in the Dark Forest, surrounded by cats who are just as ambitious as him…Tigerstar’s plan isn’t done yet.)

The Dark Forest (or Vengeance) Route: Tigerstar kills all of his enemies, using his army of Dark Forest cats and breaking the barrier from the Dark Forest to the real world, and starts a mass-murdering spree of all who had wronged him. On Tigerstar’s Shopping Cart, that means rallying the Dark Forest, escaping the barrier, killing The Three so that they cannot help save the Clans, killing Firestar x how many lives he has, killing Ravenpaw, killing Scourge if he isn’t dead already, killing the majority of ThunderClan now that I think about it, killing any StarClan cats that try to save the Clans before becoming a spooky ghost ruler of the forest, and harnesses the power of StarClan itself due to killing all of the StarClan cats. He basically becomes immortal, and it becomes a variation of…

The Absolute Route: Tigerstar rules the entire forest on his own, going into battle against LionClan and winning. His comrades Scourge and Leopardstar die, which is all the better for Tigerstar. He kills Firestar and Tallstar after the battle (they surrendered) and becomes ABSOLUTE Leader of his new clan, TigerClan. He kills all of the cats who had wronged him, and all those who resist. Any pure-blood cats must flee or die.

THE ABSOLUTE ROUTE SHOPPING CART: training the dog pack, killing the deputies, running away to ShadowClan, killing Nightstar if he isn’t dead already, proving himself to ShadowClan and getting appointed Tigerstar, not getting killed by StarClan as a codebreaker, convincing RiverClan to join ShadowClan to become TigerClan, prevent a war with ThunderClan and WindClan, killing all half-Clan cats, joining forces with Scourge, convincing Scourge not to go rogue (haha), continue ruling and raiding the twoleg-place to kill kittypets and recruit more rogues, and continue killing those who resist or rebel against TigerClan, leading a war against LionClan when the time is right, letting Leopardstar and Scourge die in the battle, making Tallstar and Firestar surrender, kill them both after an epic villain speech, killing any remaining half-Clan cats and continuing his rule.

Yikes.
