|"My belly thinks my throat's been slashed. Are we hunting or talking?"|
|— Darkflower to the cats on the hunting patrol in Tigerclaw's Fury, chapter 5|
Darkflower is a black she-cat.
In the Omen of the Stars Arc
- As Jayfeather is uniting StarClan, Darkflower is present at the StarClan and medicine cat meeting. Raggedstar asks how they can beat an enemy that brought leaf-bare to StarClan and Darkflower responds that the Dark Forest has grown stronger than them.
In the Field Guide Arc
- At the end of Tigerstar's leader ceremony, Darkflower is shown along Tallpoppy, Dawncloud, and Cinderfur standing close together, and they watch with hopeful, anxious eyes. Tigerstar promises to lead ShadowClan back to the glory that Darkflower and the other elders knew of.
In the Novellas
- As they go hunt, Darkflower scrapes the mulch on the ground, muttering that her belly thought her throat has been slashed. She inquires if they were hunting or conversing, and Blackfoot teases her, telling her to keep her fur on.
