Waspwhisker is a gray-and-white tom[4] with a scar that stretches from under his belly almost to his tail.[5]


In the Super Edition Arc

SkyClan's Destiny

Waspwhisker is first seen as a warrior of SkyClan. It was noted that he was found by a SkyClan patrol in leaf-bare as a lost and injured kittypet, wailing from hunger and the cold. He is also the one that found Shrewtooth after he had escaped his abusive Twoleg housefolk. When a patrol of SkyClan cats go and attack the rats that are sheltering in a heap of Twoleg rubbish, Leafstar assigns him to help Sparrowpelt, Rockshade, Stick, Coal, and Shorty to catch the rats as they try to escape from the front.
In the battle, he is badly wounded and treated by the SkyClan medicine cat, Echosong, and the wound develops into a long scar along his flank. When Harveymoon and Macgyver come back from their one moon exile, he describes the battle and shows off the scar. During this time his apprentice, Mintpaw, was temporarily mentored by Sharpclaw. He is also shown to be the father of Fallowfern's kits, Creekkit, Rabbitkit, Plumkit, and Nettlekit. He is mentioned at the Gathering when Leafstar praises him along with Patchfoot and Sparrowpelt.
When Snookpaw falls into the river in the Whispering Cave, Waspwhisker is one of the cats to agree that when an apprentice is moss-gathering, they must always be supervised by a warrior. When they are trying to scare the Twoleg, Waspwhisker along with Shorty and Cherrytail are told to drag branches and put them outside the nest door. After their success, Waspwhisker comes along with Leafstar to explain to the daylight-warriors why they had to miss the attack. Leafstar is surprised that Petalnose and Waspwhisker don't scold their apprentices for bragging about going, saying that the daylight-warriors had missed out, and she realizes that the warriors felt the same way.
Waspwhisker is one of the cats to be chosen to attack Dodge's group, along with Rockshade, Shrewtooth, Cherrytail, Sparrowpelt, Shorty, Cora, Stick, Coal, Sharpclaw, Egg, and Billystorm. Later in the manga in the back of the book, he is present at his kits' warrior ceremonies.

In the SkyClan and the Stranger Arc

The Rescue

He is seen telling Lichenfur that his son, Rabbitleap, has a talent to be proud of. Later on, Sharpclaw mentions to Leafstar that he assigned Wapswhisker to a border patrol to check the fox scent, and that he took Tinycloud, Sandypaw, and Nettlesplash with him. When Leafstar goes on a walk with Harveymoon, they run into him and he explains that Nettlesplash and Sandypaw have strayed from the group. When they find them, Waspwhisker tells him how he is disappointed in them, and even more when he finds out they were eating.

Beyond the Code

Waspwhisker and Cherrytail ask Sol if he'd like to join them and their apprentices for a hunting skills session. He and Cherrytail observe Sol and their apprentices, Birdpaw and Honeypaw during the session.

After the Flood

In the rebuilding of the camp, Waspwhisker helps Sharpclaw and Sparrowpelt move a tree trunk into the stream. He is the cat that tells Leafstar her kits are missing. When Sol leaves camp unannounced, Waspwhisker tells Leafstar that he can stay gone for all he cares, and Leafstar replies that Sol was working very hard to find her kits.


  • He was mistakenly called Hunchfoot in the allegiances of SkyClan's Destiny.[4] It states in the book that Waspwhisker is the father of Nettlekit, Rabbitkit, Creekkit, and Plumkit,[6] and there is no cat by the name of Hunchfoot in the book.
    • Vicky said on her Facebook page that Waspwhisker's original name was Hunchfoot but was changed to Waspwhisker at the last moment, and she was sorry that the allegiances were not changed as well.[7]
