Stumpytail is a brown tom with darker stripes and a short, stumpy tail.
In the Super Edition ArcEdit
- Stumpykit and Cinderkit are born to Rowanberry and Clawface of ShadowClan. They are seen peeking out from behind their mother when Brokentail lays Foxheart's body in the middle of the clearing.
- Stumpykit is next seen as Stumpypaw, and is apprenticed to Brokentail. Yellowfang is with Nightpelt, and Nightpelt yelps for Yellowfang to come. The two cats see Stumpypaw hanging from the lowest branch of a tree by his teeth. He crashes to the ground when he opens his mouth to reply, and wails that he is going to be in big trouble. When asked to explain, he says that Brokentail had told him to do it because he was chattering like a blackbird, and Brokentail had said that he needed to learn how to keep his jaws shut. Brokentail soon returns, and orders Stumpypaw to get back to the training area, and Stumpypaw dashes off.
- Yellowfang sees Stumpypaw when she returns to the camp. He makes his way over to eat with his brother and his mentor Nutwhisker, but Brokentail bars his way, telling him he can eat when he catches enough prey for the elders. Yellowfang goes over to Cloudpelt to talk about how he has been treating Stumpypaw, but Cloudpelt says it's been a while and she's probably forgotten how tough it is for apprentices.
In the Original Arc Edit
- Stumpytail does not formally appear in Into the Wild, but is listed in the allegiances. He is a ShadowClan warrior with an apprentice, Brownpaw.
- Stumpytail is a warrior of ShadowClan during Brokenstar's leadership. He is one of the few warriors that did not follow the cruel leader, Brokenstar, into exile.
- He is running with Deadfoot along with their respective Clans, to attack ThunderClan for harboring Brokentail, even though they are from different Clans. He attacks Fireheart as WindClan and ShadowClan try to invade the ThunderClan camp, but Fireheart defeats him by clawing his belly.
- Stumpytail does not formally appear in Rising Storm, but is listed in the allegiances.
In the Field Guide ArcEdit
- Stumpytail is part of the ShadowClan patrol that invades ThunderClan territory in "Dustpaw Speaks: Shadows in the Forest". After the first wave, he needs to catch his breath. When they retreat, Stumpytail asks if ShadowClan won the battle already. He is surprised when the ThunderClan warriors attack from another side, thinking it is another group of cats.
- In the end, ThunderClan defeats the ShadowClan patrol, who runs off back to their territory.
