Warrior Cats is a large series, with many characters, terms and places. So it is understandable that errors sometimes occur, and although the vast majority are most likely fixed before printing, there are a few that are missed. This page lists some of the errors that have been printed in the books.

Common Mistakes

With so many characters, places and events to remember, there was always going to be mistakes, some much easier to pick up in editing than others. Below is a list of the most common mistakes made in the series.

Eye Colour

This is probably the most commonly made mistake throughout the books. On many occasions cats have been described with the wrong colour eyes.


Tawnypaw is said to have amber eyes, when she has green eyes (The allegiances of this book however describe her correctly with green eyes):

"'The worst of Tawnypaw's fury was fading, though her amber eyes still burned.'"
- The Darkest Hour - page 153

Firestar is described as having amber eyes, when they are actually green:

'Jaypaw felt Firestar's amber gaze warm his pelt.'
- Dark River - page 263

Brambleclaw is the cat on the cover of the book Midnight, however he is illustrated with green eyes, when they are actually amber.

Pelt Colour(s)

This is also a common mistake, in the same way as eye colour, on many occasions cats have been described with the wrong pelt. Examples include times where the colour is simply incorrect, or in other instances cats may have been described incorrectly as a tabby or tortoiseshell. In some examples cats have have started with one pelt, and changed entirely to another later in the series.


Tigerpaw is described as having a golden pelt, when it is actually brown:

'"Hey, I look like you, don't I?" Tigerpaw interrupted, stretching out a paw to compare his golden pelt with Lionblaze's.'
- Long Shadows - page 84

Mousefur is called a tabby when she is just plain brown:

'"Sure, Fireheart." The wiry brown tabby got to her paws.'
- The Darkest Hour - page 30

In Rising Storm Tawnykit is described as ginger, but later in the series she is changed to a tortoiseshell.

Ivytail was originally described as having a brown pelt, however from Outcast onwards she becomes a tortoiseshell.

Past And Future Names

This is another common mistake. The Clan cats change their name as they grow from Kit to Apprentice and onwards. On many occasions cats have been referred to by the wrong name, such as a Apprentice being called by their Kit name, or an Apprentice being called their Warrior name before their Warrior ceremony.


The ShadowClan Leader Nightstar is called by his Warrior name Nightpelt:

'Tigerclaw snorted in disbelief and Nightstar glared down at him. "Do you doubt the word of ShadowClan, Tigerclaw?" The crowd murmured uncomfortably as Tigerclaw stared back at Nightpelt with unconcealed distrust.'
- Fire And Ice - page 246

The WindClan Apprentice Breezepaw is referred to as his Warriors name Breezepelt before his Warrior ceremony:

'"he and the kits are going to end up like Crowfeather and Breezepelt."'
- Long Shadows - page 216

Petal is called Petalnose before she becomes a Warrior:

'"You should go see Echosong" Petalnose told her. "I can look after the kits."' - Firestar's Quest - page 443


This is another simple but common mistake. On many occasions cats have been described with the wrong gender. In some instances cats begin as one gender, but are changed to another later on.


The she-cat One-eye is referred to as a tom:

'"But his name - hasn't he been accepted by StarClan yet?" asked One-Eye. "He plans to travel to the Moonstone tomorrow night," Tigerclaw told him.'
- Fire And Ice - page 32

Willowpelt is said to have two she-cats and one tom, but later in the series they change to two toms and one she-cat:

'"Willowpelt had two she-cats and a tom!" she announced.'
- Rising Storm - page 120

In The Sight Pouncepaw is referred to as a she-cat, however in later books she becomes a tom.

Famous Mistakes

There are a couple of mistakes that are fairly well known by fans and are seen as fun jokes.


Heavystep is the probably the most infamous cat in the Warrior Cats series. This is because he has been, as fans describe it, granted StarClan lives. This is said because he has unintentionally by the authors been killed several times over and returned in later books!

Heavystep first dies from greencough in Sunset, however he is still listed in the allegiances of the following book The Sight. He is then mentioned in Dark River, when he is described as flattening his ears at Hollypaw. Afterwards he is listed in the allegiances of the two following books Outcast and Eclipse. In the following book Long Shadows he dies a second time, again to greencough. In the next book Sunrise, he is again listed in the allegiances. Finally in the first book of the Omen Of The Stars series The Fourth Apprentice, he is neither listed in the allegiances or mentioned in the book, this suggests he must have died a third time between Sunrise and The Fourth Apprentice. He was not mentioned again.


Rowanclaw is another cat that is fairly infamous, as he was listed as a she-kit (when he was always suppose to be a tom) in the allegiances of three books, Midnight, Moonrise and Dawn. Fans find it amusing to think of him as a she-cat, as Rowanclaw is a proud ShadowClan Deputy.

General Mistakes

There are also a variety of other mistakes made in the books, such simple spelling mistakes, confusing certain cats with another entirely and mistakes that contradict previous events in the story. Below is a list of various other mistakes made in the series.

Crookedstar's Promise

In the allegiances Softpaw and Whitepaw are not listed under their mentors.

In the allegiances Fallowtail is listed as a queen with Kits, however she is a warrior with an apprentice at the start of the book.

- page 328

Softwing is said to have lost her Kits, but they are mentioned later in the book as Warriors named Dawnbright and Mallowtail:

'"I suppose we need new kits." they has lost so many. First Brightsky's, then Softwing's, and finally Graypool's.'
- page 452

In the allegiances for the Ancient Clan, they have no Warriors section. The Warriors are listed under the Medicine Cats, making it appear that there are two Medicine Cats in every Clan. (It isn't the Medicine Cat Apprentices that recieved their full name, as they would be listed under the full Medicine Cat's name as an Apprentice)

Scratch is called Sky:

'They had almost reached the path down the cliff when Sky let out a sharp exclamation and bounded ahead.'

'Though he still had six lives, they could all be torn from him at once if his wounds were severe enough.'
