to:

* ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'' features Fenrir, the giant wolf from Myth/NorseMythology, as a member of Thor's RoguesGallery. This version is also a shapeshifter, powerful enough to take on [[ComicBook/DoctorStrange Dormammu]], and the progenitor of many wolf gods and spirits. The latter tidbit ends up making him [[spoiler: a "grandfather" of sorts to [[ComicBook/NewMutants Wolfsbane's]] son, who was fathered with Hrimhari, one of Fenrir's many kids.]] Personality wise, he's mean and aggressive, but also [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes deeply protective of his children/descendants]] and isn't totally unreasonable. Still a major-league {{Jerkass}}, but he could be worse.




to:

* ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' faithfully depicts Fenrir as he appeared in Norse myth and the original comic. He's as tall as a building and wide enough to take up the entire Rainbow Bridge. During the finale, he ends up [[CoolVsAwesome having a brutal battle with the Hulk]].

to:

* Subverted by real dire wolves. Despite fiction commonly portraying it as being nearly the size of a horse, they were actually no taller or longer than modern grey wolves (though they were more heavily built) and actually smaller than some of the largest breeds of domestic dog.

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has the Great Grey Wolf Sif. A giant wolf that wields a giant sword. In the DLC (which takes place centuries in the past), you can meet Sif as a puppy, and he (or is it she?) is just a little larger than a full-grown wolf.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has Mouse, who starts out small enough for Harry to keep in his pocket and quickly grows into... well, this. Harry often makes jokes about the fact that Mouse is the size of a pony, ranging from calling him a "West Highlands Dogasaurus" to, "He's a mutt. Half mastiff, half woolly mammoth."

* ''MagicTheGathering'' has [[http://magiccards.info/shm/en/68.html Hollowborn Barghest]], a very big dog. That's not dry grass it's standing in--those are ''trees''.
* The SpaceWolves of TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} ride giant wolves. How giant? They can take a seven-foot-tall Viking SpaceMarine in PowerArmor to ride and some reach the size of a [[AwesomePersonnelCarrier Rhino]], ([[UpToEleven whose carrying capacity is ten of the aforementioned]] PowerArmor-wearing SpaceMarines).
