|"We've been hunting for days! I can't wait to try the sky-drop move again!"|
|— Acornpaw to Cloudstar in Cloudstar's Journey, page 262|
Acornpaw is a light brown tom.
He comes back from a patrol, muddy and wet, with his fellow apprentice, Snailpaw, who is the only cat on the patrol to have caught prey. Acornpaw mutters to himself that the only reason Snailpaw made the catch was that the prey was half-drowned in a puddle. Acornpaw is later selected to go on a hunting patrol, but Cloudstar interrupts, meowing that all of the warriors and apprentices should do battle training instead.
Shortly after this, Buzzardtail starts reorganizing the patrols, so there is a change in schedule. The apprentices are noticeably excited about this change. Acornpaw mews that he doesn't want to hunt as often; instead, he wants to learn the sky-drop battle move again.
Later, during a battle with ThunderClan, Acornpaw is seen with Nightfur and Weaselwhisker, leaping onto Nettleclaw. Cloudstar is satisfied until Nettleclaw shakes off his opponents and pounces on Acornpaw before the apprentice can react.
