Tear Jerker / Warrior Cats: The Original Series

  • Whitestorm's death at the end of The Darkest Hour turns many readers into a blubbering pile of snotty goo.
  • Hell, Darkstripe's death scene. Sure, he was a traitorous piece of scum that poisoned a kit, but him dying on the ground, saying that "It's all black... There's nothing left..." was just.... Sad. Then, of course, Graystripe ruins it by saying, "Well, that's one less traitor in the forest."
  • Yellowfang. Especially when she tells Fireheart that she wishes he was her son, instead of Brokentail.
  • This Troper teared up at the line Cloudtail (who'd pretty much been quite the Jerkass at times) said to Brightpaw telling her she was still beautiful to him, after she'd been viciously mauled by the dogs, and had been horrically scarred, losing an eye and an ear.
    Cloudtail: Sleep well, Brightpaw. You're still beautiful. Come back to us. I don't know where you are now, but you have to come back.
    • Also, Fireheart has felt really guilty about not convincing Bluestar enough to make Brightpaw and Swiftpaw warriors. So when Cloudtail blames him for not convincing Bluestar, he can only nod and agree, saying, "I know, Cloudtail. I know."
  • Forest of Secrets: Silverstream's death. Despite my emotional breakdown, I somehow managed to keep reading... Up until the end where Graystripe leaves ThunderClan, at which point I broke down crying for about ten or fifteen minutes.
  • "I'm never going to be a warrior, am I?"
  • Stonefur's death. Aw, hell.
  • Snowkit, a tiny deaf kitten, was carried away by a hawk, all the while crying for help, with no hope of being rescued. This troper cries every time.
    • When I got to this page in the book (it was from the library), I found that it was stained with tears. That's when I started crying, too.
  • Bluestar. Every book after Forest of Secrets.
  • Runningwind's death. Yeah, he wasn't a major character, but I liked him and suddenly BAM he's dead. Also Lionheart.
  • For this troper, Brightheart's mauling and name-change. She was so innocent and sweet!
  • Silverstream and Graystripe's subplot. Just... just Silverstream and Graystripe, when you get down to it.
  • Bluestar in A Dangerous Path.
