** Fernsong gained a lot of popularity ''before even appearing,'' for his sweet, oblivious, and likable nature. His ShipTease with [[spoiler:Ivypool]] doesn't hurt, either.

** [[BrokenBird Needletail]] is a DoubleSubversion of this trope. She debuted as a considerably popular character, liked for her rebellious personality and implied StepfordSmiler status. However, in the release of ''Thunder and Shadow'' she TookALevelInJerkass and became a ManipulativeBitch. Although she still had scores of fans, an equally vocal {{Hatedom}} emerged regarding her character. The following novel had her [[HeelFaceTurn become]] a more sympathetic IronWoobie, and she regained much of her former popularity.

** ''Literature/WarriorCatsDawnOfTheClans'': The most popular character is easily Tall Shadow, the snarky, intelligent she-cat who may be [=ShadowClan=]'s founder. River Ripple has also gained quite a fan base, due to his easygoing, hippie-like nature.

*** However, he has reached {{Scrappy}} status in some circles of the fandom for his characterization in arc six.



** The clan founders, Thunder, Wind, River, Shadow and Sky. Even though they have only one scene in the main series and appear very little in the ExpandedUniverse, they are extremely popular and all of them have achieved MemeticBadass status and many fanfics devoted to them. In fact, they seem to have attained BreakoutCharacter status as well, seeing as the [[Literature/WarriorCatsDawnOfTheClans fifth series]] will focus on them.

** Fernsong gained a lot of popularity ''before even appearing,'' for defying the typical male stereotypes, and his likable nature. His ShipTease with [[spoiler:Ivypool]] doesn't hurt, either.
** Puddleshine became this after the release of ''Thunde and Shadow'', for his compassion and dedication to his job despite [[spoiler:being forced into the position ''against his will'' after the death of Littlecloud.]]

** Leah Clearwater earned this title for her DeadpanSnarker tendencies and the fact that she unflinchingly and unapologetically would [[WhatTheHellHero call out the other characters whenever they acted like idiots]]. She also had many of the makings of TheWoobie as well, having lost her father to a heart attack and her boyfriend Sam leaving her for her cousin Emily ever since becoming one of the wolves, and yet having everyone shun her and [[DesignatedVillain treat her like a bitch]], not caring at all about her heartbreak (something that thankfully changed when Jacob left the pack and was able to get to know Leah without any influence from the others' prejudice.)

** Wyman Manderly, the Lord of White Harbor, was essentially a background character whenever he appeared in the first four books. However, in the fifth book [[spoiler: He has three members of the treacherous House Frey baked into pies and served to their kinsmen at a wedding]]. This action undoubtedly elevated him to Darkhorse status.

** Erestor, especially in {{slash|Fic}} {{fanfic}}s. In the books, he's just Elrond's chief counsellor, who appears at the Council of Elrond but does not make any significant contribution (he suggests the Ring be given to Tom Bombadil, and doesn't think trying to destroy the Ring is a good idea.) In fanfiction, however, he somehow tends to become [[MarySue the most beautiful, smart, witty Elf in Middle-earth]] and gets slashed with just about everyone.
