* TheDragon Saïx in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII''. He uses the ominous [[TitleDrop Kingdom Hearts]] floating over [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon The World That Never Was]] as the focus of his powers, turning him from TheStoic into TheBerserker. The aforementioned MacGuffin is, for all intents and purposes, the moon of The World That Never Was; the theme of the world is entitled Sacred Moon, the city is draped in eternal night with the only light source being Kingdom Hearts...plus, Saïx has fairly obvious connections to being a werewolf, what with his title being the ''Luna Diviner''.

** When Merrick fully broke Zen-Aku's control and became [[SixthRanger the Lunar Wolf Ranger]], he retained the moon motif, and on one occasion, when the other Rangers lent him the powers of their primary Wild Zords, it turned the Predazord into a ''Blue Moon'' form, giving it a temporary paintjob and a giant energy beam finisher.
* ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' had [[IneptMage Clare]] [[LegacyCharacter taking up her mother Niella's powers]] as [[BarrierWarrior the Gatekeeper]], themed and powered by the moon. [[TransformationNameAnnouncement "Power of the shining moon... behold, the Gatekeeper!"]]

** Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin has a short story that involves a transformation on ''moonless'' nights. It's made obvious early on that something even weirder than usual is going on. [[spoiler:[[TomatoSurprise The narrator's a wolf]], and the "monster" transforms into a human.]]

* ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'': Werewolves transform and loose their sanity during the full moon, though it appears to last for at least three nights for some of them. Menulis discovers that he still looses his mind during the full moon even if he takes a potion to turn himself human, it just means that on top of having little control of himself he no longer has the strength and healing benefits of being a werewolf until the potion wears off.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is actually averted for [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent were-creatures]]. While many in-universe believe the disease has connections to Nirn's [[AlienSky twin moons]], this is not the case. Depending on the exact form of lycanthropy present in the infected, they may [[InvoluntaryTransformation transform nightly, monthly]], or [[SuperMode voluntarily at any time]].

** Literature/{{Discworld}} subverts the "full moon = magic" cliché: the effect of the full moon on werewolves is mentioned but rarely has much impact (though there is the humorous consequence of werewolves suffering from their 'time of the month' - PLT, Pre-Lunar Tension). Instead, on Discworld the most magical phase is a half moon, because it's [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil on the edge between light and darkness]].

* Nighttime scenes in every episode of ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'' feature a half-moon hanging in the sky, [[RuleOfSymbolism to symbolize how the Unknown is a place "in-between"]].

* In ''SuikodenII'', one of the 27 True Runes is the Moon Rune, which [[ImmortalityInducer grants its wielder]] {{Immortality}}, at the cost of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism, of course.]] The original possessor of the Rune, [[MysteriousWaif Sierra Mikain,]] is said to be the oldest Vampire in existence. Scratch that, she IS the original vampire.
