Ho Yay / Warrior Cats

Go To

Ah, let's face it, there is Ho Yay everywhere in Warrior Cats. Not in the least because the fans interpret every single same-sex friendship this way.

  • Darkstripe's idolization of Tigerstar would probably count as well. He literally follows Tigerstar to the grave, and the one time he refuses to go with him, right after Tigerstar's betrayal of ThunderClan, it's because he was jealous of the fact that Tigerstar was sharing his plans with Brokentail instead of himself, Darkstripe.
  • Firestar/Whitestorm, as Whitestorm constantly stands up for Firestar, and we are often told how much Firestar respects Whitestorm.
  • Brambleclaw/Hawkfrost. Brambleclaw jeopardizes his relationship with Squirrelflight because he spends too much time with Hawkfrost. And then when things get patched up between them, he still meets Hawkfrost in secret. Unlike most of the couples here, these two are half-siblings.... Yeah...
  • Lionblaze/Stormfur, which starts with Lionblaze thinking that he likes Stormfur, and then eventually culminates with a Jayfeather detecting a rush of warmth and a strong bond between them.
  • Fallen Leaves/Jayfeather ("I could not leave you here to walk alone, when you walked with me like a brother.")
  • Kestrelflight/Jayfeather, especially as Kestrelflight isn't particularly surprised to see Jayfeather in his dreams.

  • Purdy/Sol: Purdy stands up for Sol all the time, plus they lived alone together for a while...
  • The books can really read as if Hollyleaf was in love with both Cinderheart and Willowshine.
  • Leafpool has some Romantic Two Girl Friendships with Sorreltail, Mothwing, and Cody that can easily be seen as this.
    • Mothwing also has massive amounts of Les Yay right back at Leafpool, as well as some with Willowshine and possibly even Leopardstar.
  • Blossomfall gets a lot with both Ivypool and Dovewing. This is especially notable in Sign of the Moon seeing the excitement she displays when Dovewing becomes a warrior (because now they can spend more time together) and when she and Ivypool go on a walk in the tunnels.
  • Shrewtooth and Sharpclaw from SkyClan. Shrewtooth's constant drive to please Sharpclaw can be read as love.
  • Violetpaw has this towards both Needletail and Zelda. She looks up to Needletail almost obsessively, and is shown to be blind to her (rather glaring) faults. On the other hand, Violetpaw and Zelda form a strong bond very quickly, to the point where Violetpaw becomes distraught at the prospect of Zelda leaving. And let's not forget that they shared a nest...


How well does it match the trope?
