* The High Elven army in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' has an elite unit called the White Lions of Chrace, [[AnAxeToGrind greataxe-wielding]] woodsmen who wear the pelts of the beasts they take their name from.

* In a ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'' adaptation, there's a barbarian with a wolf skin. It's likely meant to be a pun on the name, "Beowulf". In which case it would be a lame pun, as Beowulf's name comes from "Bee Wolf," that is a bear, which he was described as being able to grapple like one.
