Characters: Warrior Cats ThunderClan
"I am Firestar. Welcome to ThunderClan-the Clan of courage and loyalty. I was not a forest-born cat, but ThunderClan welcomed me, and once I proved myself as a warrior, they grew to respect me. I have risen to become their leader, and I would lay down all nine of my lives for my Clan, just as my Clanmates would lay down their lives for me and for each other. There is no other Clan in the forest so true or so brave. I respect and admire the other Clans, but my heart is here, with ThunderClan-the Clan of heroes, the Clan of compassion, the Clan of destiny."

ThunderClan is the Clan a young kittypet named Rusty stumbled upon one day. After accepting their offer of kinship, he joined them and learned of loyalty and nobility. Rusty rose to become the great leader Firestar, and the Warrior Cats
series has continued to follow ThunderClan. While the other Clans are named for their special skills, ThunderClan are named for their courage and strength. Although their skill is stalking prey, they are known to the other Clans as peaceful warriors who want to help others. Following the philosophy that honour and loyalty are more important than blood, ThunderClan has accepted several outsiders into their Clan. Although cats from all Clans, even ThunderClan itself, have prejudices against these outsiders, they will work tirelessly to overcome this hatred and bring peace to the Clans.

General Clan Tropes
- Character Focus: ThunderClan are the main characters of Warrior Cats. Every single point of view character is connected to ThunderClan in some significant way. Firestar, Graystripe, Ravenpaw, Tigerstar, Yellowfang, Brambleclaw, Squirrelflight, Leafpool, Jayfeather, Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, Dovewing, and Ivypool were all full members of ThunderClan for at least some of their lives. Mistystar, Feathertail, Stormfur, and Flametail had ThunderClan blood. Leafstar, Crookedstar, Scourge, and Sasha all had their lives heavily influenced by a member or former member of ThunderClan, those being Firestar, Mapleshade, and Tigerstar twice respectively. Cloudstar is an ancestor of modern ThunderClan. Gray Wing is Thunder's uncle.
- Enemy Mine: ThunderClan are quite willing to work with the other Clans are common threats. In The Last Hope for example, they're the first Clan to propose an alliance.
- The Hero: ThunderClan are often portrayed as the noblest and most just of the Clans.
- Mixed Ancestry: ThunderClan is a pretty diverse Clan. Most ThunderClan cats have SkyClan blood because of how they took in Cloudstar's kits in Firestar's Quest, and since the beginning of Into the Wild ThunderClan has taken in quite a few outsiders, such as kittypets and ShadowClan cats.
