Warrior is Captain Star's fifth tug. He is used for a wide variety of tasks around Bigg City Port. Warrior usually works with Big Mac and sometimes with Top Hat. He is often clumsy, but tries not to mess up. He is known only to get in the way by the Z-Stacks.
Warrior speaks with a deep-toned South London accent.
Warrior's capabilities range from the towing of barges (mainly Lord Stinker) to major liner docking operations, including the Princess Alice and the Duchess. Like the rest of the Star Fleet, Warrior is based on the tugs of San Francisco waters from the 1920s. His name obviously means he is pure of courage, bravery and knows how to put up a fight, which is quite ironically nothing at all like Warrior.
He is extremely hardworking, despite the fact that his inherent clumsiness sometimes leads to problems. He is also quite loyal, strong-willed, determined, and never gives up. Despite Warrior's shortcomings, he has proved himself to be a valuable member of the Star Fleet with notable examples being when he helped put out the fires, saved Izzy Gomez from sinking and stopped the logs that were flowing from up the river. Captain Star has referred to him as a striker. Even though he's not the smartest tug on the fleet, Warrior can occasionally come up with bright (if unusual) ideas in dire situations, such as setting his garbage barge alight to make a beacon for the S.S. Vienna. Whenever he makes a mistake, Warrior is determined to set things right, as seen in "Sunshine," when he is the only tug who openly acknowledges how badly the other Star Tugs treated Sunshine.Warrior's whistle has a single note and is very nasally, much like a factory hooter. It is also Johnny Cuba's whistle at a higher pitch.
Warrior is painted in the Star Fleet's corporate livery. This consists of a black hull, a yellow superstructure, white mast, and an American flag-styled red, white, and blue funnel. His name is painted on the sides of his bow in white and he has the number "5" on his funnel. He wears a blue cap.

- After Tugs' production ended, Warrior's model was purchased by The Star Tugs Company, an organisation which aimed to restore and preserve the models.
- Warrior is the only member of the Star Fleet to have a fire hose, (although the Fire Tug is an actual firefighting tug.), which is actually a water monitor.
- Unlike the other tugs, aside from Sea Rogue's uncle, Warrior has a bushy front fender. This might be to indicate his clumsiness. Also, Warrior does not have any side-bumpers like most of the other tugs.
- It is currently unknown if Warrior's other face masks still remain in existence.
- Warrior, along with Hercules, Billy Shoepack, Lillie Lightship, and Boomer, is one of the few vessels to have hair showing from underneath their hat.
- His theme tune is a musical variation of the Liberty Bell March as used for the opening theme of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
