  • Heyyy what’s up everyone. My name is definitely Sunnyfall and it’s a perfectly normal Monday,

  • the day I always upload of course, so I figured I’d shake up your day with something no

  • one has ever done before: a top 10 list. Oh sure, you might think it’s boring or plain

  • but don’t worry. I have the best most rockingest top 10 list youve ever seen heading your

  • way so, before I even say anything, make sure you like this video, subscribe, ring that

  • bell, join my Patreon, join my discord, follow me on every platform in existence, and pledge

  • your loyalty to the channel.

  • Done? Great! Now let’s get right into that countdown.

  • Number 10: Top 10 Favorite Super editions

  • Number 10: Tigerheart's Shadow, because something has to be in 10th place

  • Number 9: Riverstar's Home, because half of it was forced to be at least okay and there

  • was no converting other groups this time Number 8: Skyclan's Destiny, because if Stick

  • and Sharpclaw could never speak again we’d have some nice clan politics to look at

  • Number 7: Bramblestar's Storm, because S-I got way too attached to those kittypets

  • Number 6: Graystripe's Vow, because half of it was good and it’s got a gay couple and

  • some roleplayers Number 5: Firestar's Quest, because uh it’s

  • average, not the worst or anything Number 4: Bluestar's Prophecy, because despite

  • its flaws in the timeline, as a standalone book it’s not half-bad

  • Number 3: Crookedstar's Promise, because *someone* got way too attached to the community of this

  • place Number 2: Hawkwing's Journey, it’s got a

  • surprisingly haunting mood and a stupid as heck protagonist we can all love

  • And Number 1: Tallstar's Revenge, a nice tight story with a focus on characters and development

  • Obviously this one would rank low, because, 1, who even cares about just super editions

  • and nothing else? And 2, there’s only like 16 super editions. If you didn’t make it

  • on this list, it’s because I really don’t like you, but I only honestly care about likethese

  • four.

  • Number 9: Top 10 Favorite Books: The Old Bad Version

  • Number 10: Crookedstar's Promise, because I already explained this one

  • Number 9: Sunrise, because I remembered it for Hollyleaf

  • Number 8: Hollyleaf’s Story, because it’s better in my head

  • Number 7: Forest of Secrets, because I remembered it being good when I was a kid

  • Number 6: Long Shadows, because I remembered it for Hollyleaf

  • Number 5: Thunder, because it’s an actually good new book bucking all those Warriors trends

  • Number 4: Tallstar’s Revenge, because I explained this one too

  • Number 3: The First Battle, because it’s the best Dawn of the Clans book and I wanted

  • some DoTC rep when I made this list Number 2: The Darkest Hour, because it’s

  • like actually good but I don’t care enough about the first arc cast anymore

  • And Number 1: The Forgotten Warrior, because I remembered it for Hollyleaf *and* it’s

  • better in my head

  • Some years ago or something I just made a favorite book list by plopping on some books

  • I remembered liking randomly. The only alteration I made now was adding in Thunder, but even

  • now I know it’s not even remotely right. Bad list. Don’t even believe it.

  • Number 8: Top 10 Favorite Books: The Running Version

  • Number 10: Long Shadows, because I sorta like each of the book thirds individually but all

  • ofem couldve been way better if they were like actually the story

  • Number 9: Forest of Secrets, because it’s still pretty good and the first arc is solid

  • Number 8: Bluestar's Prophecy, because when I took it out of context of the series I actually

  • liked the darn thing for the character journey and stuff

  • Number 7: Dark River, because it’s the real first book of Power of Three. The SIght was

  • lying to you, this is the first time Lionpaw is even a character, anyone knows anything

  • about the prophecy, or that Dark Forest stuff starts

  • Number 6: The Fourth Apprentice, because to heck with all of you it’s a good story.

  • Just, you know, ignore everything that came before or after it and youll be fine

  • Number 5: Warrior's Refuge, because sorry, this is the cutest darn book in the series

  • and I will never stop shoving it in your face Number 4: Rising Storm. Sun-my child self

  • didn’t like it because it was all about characters and emotion but my adult self likes

  • it because it’s all about characters and emotion

  • Number 3: Eclipse, because it’s the best example of thatgood culturePower of

  • Three is so known for Number 2: Sunrise, because the Hollyleaf depiction

  • is actually good but could be better if they hadn’t just thought of it just now and had

  • any time for build up And Number 1: The Darkest Hour, because I’m

  • strong enough to admit it’s a solid book and it totally made someone cry a couple times

  • even though this cast isn’t my favorite in the series

  • Since Sun- Since I started with that Trip Through Time series I’ve been keeping track

  • of which books I like with that deep re-read I give them. Obviously that means only the

  • first, what, 31 published books were in the running, but I believe this list way more,

  • so it ranks ahead. Maybe if Sun-Maybe if I had gotten further along by now, this list

  • would be higher up on the list!

  • Number 7: Top 10 Favorite Characters

  • Number 10: Poppyfrost, great as a Jayfeather pal and super introspective with that Starclan

  • connection twice over Number 9: Sunstrike, because I wrote Tempest

  • Rift and that forces you to like your protagonist Number 8: Jayfeather, because he’s a compassionate

  • grump with a life intwined with destiny who should really get to realize that doesn’t

  • work Number 7: Cinderheart, because she’s better

  • in my head where she’s actually a friend to all three of the three but she does have

  • that emotion over Hollyleaf and the water therapy for real

  • Number 6: Ivypool, because she’s also better in my head but the idea of a double-agent

  • on both sides of the conflict with emotional ties to cats on both sides is cool

  • Number 5: Dovewing, because I changed my mind since I liked Ivypool more than her, she’s

  • gotta power that could tie so well into her personality and she has a passion and compassion

  • that won’t stop for anything Number 4: Hazeltail, because she’s a wonderful

  • protective lesbian who has trouble with her feelings, read Paws of Stars

  • Number 3: Brightheart, because her development should not have ended after the first arc

  • and she could grow so much more, also read Paws of Stars

  • Number 2: Thornclaw, because he’s an unambitious but dedicated and passionate xenophobic hardworking

  • jerk who really protects you once he loves you, definitely read Paws of SStars

  • And Number 1: Hollyleaf, because I have loved and grown with her since I was like 9 and

  • she’s been twirling round in my head for all of those years

  • Ugh, it’s just so basic. Even with some weird background tastes, so many of these

  • cats are loved by so many people that it doesn’t feel telling or unique. I guess I do love

  • all these cats but it doesn’t make it a good list, so number 7’s all you get, buddy.

  • Number 6: Top 10 Favorite Medicine Cats

  • Number 10: Briarlight is not a medicine cat so Puddleshine, because he’s unique enough

  • Number 9: Brambleberry, because she was nice to Crookedjaw but she could be better

  • Number 8: Mothwing, because her novella is like the best novella and canonized all those

  • things people think were true before Number 7: Cinderpelt, because she squarely

  • chose to be a medicine cat thrice over even without being gifted in it and thatknowing

  • her own deathstuff was really deep, guys Number 6: Flipclaw is a medicine cat, and

  • his circumstances are so funny that he totally belongs on this list. He’s also gay

  • Number 5: Kestrelflight because I wrote Tempest Rift and finally figured out who the heck

  • this guy is. Also he’s a great brother and gay.

  • Number 4: Frostpaw because this arc’s been doing a surprisingly great job of showing

  • her personality, struggles, and growth off and I hope it keeps going. Also she’s asexual

  • and gay. Number 3: Yellowfang because specifically

  • when she was alive she was a wonderful grumpy mom and had some good stuff going on

  • Number 2: Leafpool, because she’s got a beast of a life and even though I don’t

  • like everything about her, she’s got enough sympathy points for a spot

  • And Number 1: Jayfeather, because I already talked about this guy. He’s great.

  • It’s a bit better, I guess. See now that you have to focus just on medicine cats your

  • tastes can become more obvious. But you know, there’s still not a lot of medicine cats

  • in comparison to everybody so a lot of cats will pop up on a lot of lists andfrankly

  • I don’t even know if S-if I care much about the medicine cats, all in all. Yeah number

  • 6 is fine. Below average.

  • Number 5: Top 10 Favorite Leaders

  • Number 10: Ugh I didn’t really have a 10th. Are we sure I can't pick one of those Paws

  • of Stars leaders? Fine. Tallstar I guess. Didn’t love his last moons but he was fine

  • before that Number 9: Jingostar, because starting up a

  • clan with all the kittypets and loners who were scammed by Sol is great

  • Number 8: Leopardstar, because she adds a lotta spice to every book she’s in

  • Number 7: Crookedstar, because I liked his super edition but actually as a leader he

  • was kinda just a coward Number 6: Gray Wing, because I like leaders

  • who don’t want to be leaders and he had all that nice dad and pacifist stuff that

  • let them befriend a whole bunch of cats around Number 5: Monkeystar, because starting up

  • a clan with all the kittypets and loners who heard about the clans in stories is even funnier

  • Number 4: Tigerheartstar, because, as a leader, he’s been really funny and a great source

  • of conflict with clear emotional and not strictly evil motives

  • Number 3: Bluestar, because she’s complicated, wasn’t always right, but was wise and dedicated

  • anyway Number 2: Tall Shadow, because do not look

  • at her novella and she’s great And Number 1: Half Moon, because Sunny wouldn’t

  • let me survive if I didn’t get her on here

  • I still end up loving random warriors way more than leaders but this is better. There’s

  • a lot of cats here that, like, I actually care about. Really, never ever let Sunny talk

  • about Half Moon. You will be stuck there all, flipping day. Just read Paws of Stars or something.

  • Most of what she’d say is in there anyway. I mean me. What I’d say. I’d sure love

  • to tell you about her.

  • Number 4: Top 10 Favorite Background Characters

  • Number 20: Monkeystar Number 19: Snowtuft

  • Number 18: Rainstorm Number 17: Minnowtail

  • Number 16: Minty Number 15: Mousewhisker

  • Number 14: Thistleheart Number 13: Sedgewhisker

  • Number 12: Sunfish Number 11: Whiskernose

  • Number 10: Ebonyclaw Number 9: Fringewhisker

  • Number 8: Foxleap Number 7: Owlwhisker

  • Number 6: Rosepetal Number 5: Otterheart

  • Number 4: Icecloud Number 3: Toadstep

  • Number 2: Sunstrike Number 1: Hazeltail

  • And- What do you mean this is too many

  • Now were getting into some actual quality! How’s any other list so far *actually* going

  • to tell you what I like? Everyone might like the same books or the same protagonists or

  • leaders but no one has the same investment in all those random one-line background characters.

  • But who ever said youre allowed to just cut me off like that? I was even stopping

  • myself from talking about all of emjust to keep from getting too long. I have like

  • 30 more I was gonna go on about. Number 3: Top 10 Favorite Main-Series Arcs

  • Number 10: The New Prophecy, because it’s both boring and frustrating. How the heck

  • do you have 6 cats go on a journey, let none of them befriend each other, and not even

  • tell us what 3 of them are like Number 9: A Vision of Shadows, because dropping

  • the protagonistsarcs to focus just on a cool plot and just have the characters in

  • and out of the point-of-view do whatever you need to see and advance that plot is not the

  • way to my heart Number 8: Power of Three, because it has a

  • great clan culture but it is a mess and doesn’t decide what it wants to be until the last

  • third of the fifth book Number 7: The Broken Code, because the first

  • half was great and the last book was nice but I will never get over Darkness Within

  • Number 6: Dawn of the
