Interesting facts

Author statements

  • Vicky says that Squirrelflight didn't tell Bramblestar about Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf not being theirs because she wanted Bramblestar to love the kits as if they were his own.[8]
  • Kate had "never forgiven Bramblestar for stealing the deputyship from Graystripe" and said that his ruthless ambition has always appalled her.[blog 1]
    • She also said that if she were to write the storyline, she would make Firestar choose Graystripe as the deputy instead, then later make Graystripe give up his deputyship for the good of the Clan. She also feels that Graystripe never got a chance to show off his true nobility.[blog 2]
    • However, she later said that there was nothing to forgive, but still would have preferred Graystripe over Bramblestar.[blog 3]
  • Kate has said Bramblestar chose Squirrelflight as his deputy to show his respect and loyalty towards her.[blog 4]
  • If Kate could be married to a Clan cat, she would choose Brambleclaw.[9]


  • He was mistakenly called Bramblepaw by Ravenpaw, even though he would have had his warrior name already because Leafpool and Squirrelflight were already born.[10]
  • On the cover of Midnight, Bramblestar is mistakenly shown with green eyes.[11]
  • Vicky has stated that Bramblestar probably cannot forgive Squirrelflight.[12] However, this statement proves to be false, as Bramblestar forgives Squirrelflight in The Last Hope.[13]
  • The "Confidential Notes" states that Bramblestar and Squirrelflight could never be mates, but she will remain his deputy.[14] In Bramblestar's Storm, that is proven to be incorrect as they become mates again at the end of the book.[15]
  • Despite the fact that Thornclaw is speaking with Blackstar in Fading Echoes, Bramblestar is shown speaking in Night Whispers.[16][17]
  • Bramblestar says that Dewnose, Snowbush, and Ambermoon are the first cats he made apprentices. This is wrong, since Lilyheart and Seedpaw are older than Cloudtail and Brightheart's litter, and should have been made apprentices before the three cats between The Last Hope and Bramblestar's Storm. Vicky has said the reason for this will be explained in Dovewing's Silence. This was never touched upon.[18]
  • His name was mistakenly spelled Bramblelclaw.[19]
  • In River of Fire, he tells Twigpaw that he was an apprentice when Graystripe left to join RiverClan, although in reality he was still a kit. [20]
