In Yellowfang's Secret, Crowtail is a warrior of ShadowClan. She gains her first apprentice, Scorchpaw, and admonishes him when he accidentally hurts Rowanpaw during a training exercise. While on a border patrol with Hollyflower, Newtspeck, and Yellowfang, they run into some kittypets and tell them Russetpaw and Boulder are part of the Clan now. Not long after, the kittypets attack ShadowClan in hopes of rescuing their former friends. After Scorchwind is made a warrior, she is given another apprentice, Clawpaw. Crowtail retires to the elders' den with Archeye and Deerleap, and is exiled when Brokenstar sends the elders away. Yellowfang tries to object, but Crowtail insists they'll be fine.
