|"RiverClan is well. Softpaw got caught in a strong current that carried her close to the rapids. Dapplepaw managed to drag her out in time, but she swallowed a lot of water."|

Dappletuft is a gray-and-white tom.
Dappletuft is a RiverClan warrior under Mistystar's leadership in the lake territories, born to Lakeheart and Lizardtail alongside Softpelt, Harelight, and Gorseclaw as Dapplekit. Upon becoming an apprentice, Dapplepaw was mentored by Duskfur, soon earning his warrior name, Dappletuft. When Bramblestar began demanding codebreakers be punished throughout the Clans, Dappletuft attended a secret meeting with cats from all the Clans discussing how to bring the imposter down.
