Virtual Warrior World is a popular Warrior Cats Play-By-Post roleplaying site hosted on the Proboards forums, still highly active since 2008. It can be reached here.


  • IceClan: A Clan that resides in the mountains, and has the main qualities of being enduring and strong, with the primary ability to climb. It takes the role of the ThunderClan.

  • FireClan: These Clanners live on the flat plains, being the swiftest and smallest of the cats, and the best runners. They're essentially the ShadowClan to VWW.

  • TreeClan: This Clan is located in the forest, and is known for being fiercely independent and intelligent. They are strongest in the area of jumping, such as from tree to tree, and are the RiverClan of VWW.

  • RockClan: They can be found on a large, overhanging cliff, and are fearless and cunning. RockClanners are the strongest physically out of all four Clans, and play the WindClan on VWW.

There's also DeathClan, the VWW equivalent to BloodClan, though with more emphasis on organization and intelligence, and more compassion compared to BloodClan. Not to mention wolf and fox boards, the former being considerably more popular.


Virtual Warrior World provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Most female Clan cats, if not all. Medicine cats and queens occasionally get in on it as well.
    • Faux Action Girl: Some she-cats turn out like this if they're appointed warriors and apprentices with battle training, but either never see a real fight due to their creators going inactive or fail in fights because of plot-related reasons.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Every RockClan staffer, other than the leader, has a name that begins with "S".
  • All Love Is Unrequited: A staple of mate drama.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Some warriors regard the kits as this, considering that they frequently share the same mother.
  • Arch-Enemy: When Spiritstep was leader, she and Darkstar were this to each other.
  • Artistic License – Biology: If every character went by every single rule of natural genetics in cats/wolves/foxes down to the letter, the site would be a barren place. Common examples of it are male torties and non-albino cats with red eyes.
  • Advertisement:
  • Anti-Villain: DeathClan could be considered this for the Clans in general.
  • Big Bad: Acidfang for VWW in general.
  • Bigger Bad: The Father is this in one plot. Though not an active character, he provides the motives for the antagonists: Drift, Slyde, and Zoom.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: Due to plenty of mix-ups in the early days of the site, pretty much everyone in IceClan is related to each other, rendering 99% of mate pairs as automatically incestuous. The same could be said for many in the Clans as a whole.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Popular in the wolf and DeathClan boards.
  • Chocolate Kit: Since kits are divided among the three queens as their offspring in their Clan unless they get permission for otherwise, it often results in kits looking nothing like their mothers.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl/Crazy Jealous Guy: A lot of mates act really possessive towards each other, providing mate drama.
  • Damsel in Distress: Tying in with Distressed Dude, several female and male kits were abducted and taken to DeathClan, requiring a rescue mission, in one plot. In another plot, Darkstar kidnapped a kit from each of the three other Clans besides her own, and it took a while to bail out all of them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Most of the staffers.
  • Disappeared Dad: Since Clan kits are all mothered by the queens and queens aren't allowed to take permanent mates, it's rare for a character to actually have an established father. When a character does mention their missing father, the father is usually just dead.
  • Distressed Dude: Emberstorm, being temporarily captured by IceClan before getting rescued.
  • Expy: It's common for people to make and roleplay cat versions of characters in other works. Examples are the loner cat group of the main Ouran High School Host Club characters, and the three cat clones of Erik from The Phantom of the Opera, all completely separate.
  • Follow the Leader: After the creation of Scarhealer, a mute character who gained widespread recognition on the site due to her creator's well-known status, there was an enormous boom in the rate of mute, blind, or deaf characters.
  • Ghost Town: The kittypet, fox, CloudClan, and Dark Pool boards are the least popular boards on the entire site.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: It's a running gag for Darkstar and Nightshade to be this.
  • Incest Is Relative: Since there are only three queens in each Clan to be mothers, siblings end up being mates. This is (hopefully) unintentional. It's often Hand Waved off as...
    • Not Blood Siblings: To avoid incest, one of the mated pair is usually said to be adopted. (Though, this just leads to Fridge Logic as to who their biological mother is then.)
  • Inspirationally Disadvantaged: 99% of blind/mute/deaf characters are characterized as this, being Incorruptible Pure Pureness who are determined to overcome their disadvantages.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters
  • Love Dodecahedron: Otherwise known as mate drama, and so common on the site to the point that it's the bane of many of the roleplayers' existence, prime material for snarking at, ranting about, and being entertained by, and carried out by tons of people with their characters anyway.
  • Purple Prose: It's popular for people to write this way in their posts to look more "advanced."
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Very common for "evil" characters to have these, even when they're not exactly possible or very rare in real life.
  • Retcon: Happens a lot to forgotten/failed plots, which are retconned out of existence. Also happens to backstories, but with the other way around in that they're retconned into characters' histories as if they were always there.
  • The Rival: Darkstar was this to Spiritstep when the latter was TreeClan leader.
  • Serious Business: Some people take the mate drama that often occurs among their characters a bit too seriously.
  • Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality: Roleplay-wise, it's as even as the scale in the actual Warriors books, with she-cats getting the same opportunities as toms to be an apprentice and warrior, and half of the leaders are female. Members-wise, there are a lot more girls than guys on the site, so there's quite the female oversupply in the Clans.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Darkstar sees everyone in her entire Clan as incompetent idiots, to the point that she once burned the camp down to teach them a lesson.
  • Through a Face Full of Fur: For some reason, roleplayers often have their cat/wolf/fox characters "blush" or "turn red/pink".
  • Together in Death: Bloodflame and Peachwing.
  • True Companions: Many VWWers as a whole consider themselves this.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Almost everyone in the Clans does this to CloudClan after they respond to increasing their declining population by sending a spirit down to a Gathering to choose tributes from each of the Clans to fight each other to the death. Some of the tributes include apprentices.
  • World of Badass: Many, if not all, VWW characters are all badasses in their own ways.
