* In ''The Wolf's Hour'' by Robert [=McCammon=], the werewolves mainly follow the standard man into full wolf pattern and can shift at will. The main difference is that the werewolves age as wolves while in wolf form, so it avoids the issue of everything being solved by turning into a wolf.

* PlayedForLaughs in a ''[[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse Mickey Mouse]]'' comic that's centered around a "novel" written by {{Goofy}}. It involves various supernatural happenings, but Goofy insists that everything has a natural explanation in the end. At one point, Mickey calls him out for having a blatantly real werewolf transformation. [[CloudCuckoolander Goofy]] insists that lycanthropy is perfectly natural -- a severe allergic reaction to the full moon. Furthermore, the werewolf transforms back to normal when a character claims it's not the full moon, and then back to werewolf form when another one corrects him that it actually is.

* ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Blood Red]]'' has two different types of werewolf show up, and refers to two others. All of them are apparently vulnerable to silver and wolfsbane.

* ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' and its [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo oddly named sequel]] answer the age old questions of what would happen if [[FurAgainstFang vampires and werewolves got into a centuries old blood war]], and what would happen if someone was turned by both vampires and werewolves. In ''Film/{{Underworld}}'' werewolves, or [[NotUsingTheZWord lycans]], are from the brother strain of the virus that produced the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. There are two strains of werewolves. The first came from the first werewolf, William, and all those bitten by him. They're dire wolves, but they can never turn back to humans ever again, and they've permanently lost their minds. The second version is the ones descended from Lucian. They are monstrous man-wolves with jet black skin and very little hair. The latter ones go berserk on their first transformations, but as they age they can gain control. They can [[VoluntaryShapeshifting voluntarily transform]] during the full moon, but they don't have to, and again, older ones can transform when they please. Both forms are transferred via a bite, and both are regenerating immortals. (Immortal to an extent anyway; silver works, but ripping their head off without silver works too). There's also Michael, who's a badass hybrid as a result of [[spoiler:Selene turning him near the end of the movie]], but resembles a werewolf far more than a vampire, likely because he was bitten by a werewolf first. He's a wolf man, and has complete and total control over his transformations, sometimes even doing partial transformations with ease.

* In ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' there are several werewolves, one of whom is always stuck in his PettingZooPeople wolf form though most only change into their as a result of the full moon. Another character was turned after being bitten by a vampiric ''dashhund'' that had been attacked by a werewolf before being fed on by a vampire, his werewolf form is a rather riduculous looking oversised dashhund.

* In ''{{Webcomic/Skins}}'', they’re called Skins (obviously) and although they are primarily lupine, they also have additional features. Vinnie’s were-form has a mane and teeth like a sabretooth tiger. They also seem to change shape at will, not according to the moon. Silver does kill them though.
* Lawrence Talbot (of the 1941 ''[[Film/TheWolfMan1941 The Wolf Man]]'' movie) briefly headlined a webcomic called ''Webcomic/TheTalbotChronicles''. The werewolves in that followed the same rules as the 1940s movie series, and even addresses the two different versions of the classic poem: according to the comic, a werewolf transforms during the full moon, as well as every night during Autumn.
* ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'': in incomplete form, they look like [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=447 this]]. Toni (who by the way, normally looks like [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=756 this]]) can change at will, but this is labeled as "cheating" (Mentioned [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=562 here]] at the bottom and explained [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=759 here]]). Toni has ''different'' wolf forms, too, depending on how complete her transformation is. Her [[http://hanna.aftertorque.com/?p=762 latest form]] is...just...[[{{Squee}} waaaaaay too cute]]. Werewolves are also very rare.

The actual comic itself is fairly good, with slightly wonky dialogue (due to the fact that the writer has English as his second language) but gorgeous artwork.
* First off, the creatures in ''Webcomic/AnsemRetort'' are actually werePIRES (though they seem to take more after their were-side). All that is known so far is that their natural predators are sharks. And their beast forms look like, well, [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the Beast]]. Oh, and apparently they make cute reindeer.

Werewolves in ''Webcomic/BadMoonRising'' can sometimes can be warded off with religious symbols. They are also very rare.born rather than bitten, and there's significant in-universe debate on if they're cursed, or if all lycanthropy is genetic. Navajo style Skinwalkers also get a mention.

* In ''Webcomic/DandyAndCompany'', Bernard is turned into a werewolf by the demon Skeezicks. As such, he's basically a PettingZooPeople version of a wolf (well, inasmuch as an animal in this comic can be otherwise) 24/7, but transforms into the classic humongous, bloodthirsty monster when exposed to the light of the full moon. (Cloud cover is enough to block out the effect). The only way to restore normalcy is to challenge Skeezicks to a battle for Bernard's soul.
* ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' contains an entire race of werewolves. These werewolves can transform at will. In fact, many of the race prefer their wolf-man form, only taking a human form for diplomatic purposes. Their strength is based on the moon, with their wolf-man forms becoming stronger and more proficient with magic. Although the race is inherently more brutal, there is no loss of sanity or any other such ill effect from the transformation. Some werewolves can only partially shift; these are referred to as "runts". They have anger management issues and are subject to FantasticRacism.
* Two of the protagonists of ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'' become inflicted with Lycanthropy. The titular doctors are able to cure nearly any malady, but they're only able to ''control'' lycanthropy rather than get rid of it entirely. The two werewolves became so because a horrific entity bent on consuming all life tried to absorb their minds and souls, and this awoke within them an "inner beast". This is treated differently than "standard" lycanthropy, which is contagious, but it's also difficult to cure because you can't really get rid of the inner beast without killing a person's will to live, and getting it to settle back down is the only way. Kili and Greg have to wear magical arm-bands and exercise a lot to burn off their excess energy, and one side-effect is that their hair is now [[RapunzelHair incredibly long]]. While they're not contagious in the traditional sense, the possibility of Kili and Greg adopting a child recently came up and she was concerned that the kid would develop lycanthropy from her parents souls rubbing off on her.
* Neauria from ''Webcomic/{{Earthsong}}'' and her species provide the inspiration for the werewolf legends on Earth. They're anthropomorphic dog-like humanoids, but that's about the only similarity they share with Earth's werewolves.
* Ace of ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' is a werewolf. He's been shown to involuntarily transform during the full moon (requiring him to depend on his class partner Nina for an important essay because he couldn't type with paws) and [[spoiler:as a boy]] always exhibited hairy hands in his human form. (It's a puberty thing. He's normal looking while human now. His dad on the other hand, is a full time werewolf.)
* [[PlayfulHacker WiredWolf]] of ''Webcomic/{{Enjuhneer}}'' has no apparent connection to the moon, instead transforming when incredibly angry (and, in one case, when she [[YourCostumeNeedsWork needed a Halloween costume]].) Her precise nature is unconfirmed, but it's worth noting that post-PlotRelevantAgeUp, she's a LittleBitBeastly even in human form.
* ''Webcomic/FamilyMan'' features an entire town based around the local werewolf population, though the majority of townspeople are by no means werewolves. Lycanthropy, in females, at least, seems to coincide with menstruation, and the transformation is preceded by a ritual including the donning of a wolf skin. Evidence suggests that werewolves can arise from genetic inheritance ''and'' from...some means of transmission. At least, that's what we know so far: there's still much to be revealed on the subject.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', [[http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff400/fv00355.htm it's all a mistake]]. She's really just a [[UpliftedAnimal Bowman's wolf.]]
* The werewolf seen in the opening pages of ''Webcomic/TheGlassScientists'' is [[http://www.theglassscientists.com/?comic=page-04 larger than a normal wolf,]] with glowing eyes and what seems to be purply-red coloring. It's also [[http://www.theglassscientists.com/?comic=page-06-2 prone to changing shape erratically.]] Later, when the moon's set a little, it turns out that he's an amateur [[MadScientist mad zoologist]] who got bitten during his studies and was trying to control his new condition with a wolfsbane potion, but hadn't quite perfected the recipe yet.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', unsurprisingly as {{shapeshifting}} is a main theme. The backstory for the Dewitchery Diamond mentions a traditional curse-based Were-Wolf. It was shown as a man-wolf and infected a victim. So, [[http://twitter.com/dantheshive/status/96711695321403393 by Dan's count]], 2 1/2 werewolves (the one produced by DD wasn't "were").

* The werewolves in ''Lunatic Chaos'' are caused by heredity. However, the 'when' is cleverly subverted. Upon entering puberty, a werewolf will change some random night. Whatever moon is out that night is what they become 'linked' to. They can transform at will, but will be forced to take on their wolf shape on their personal phase. However, when a werewolf becomes linked to the full moon, they become bloodthirsty monsters whenever they are forced to transform.
* One of the supporting characters in ''[[http://www.noroomformagic.com/ No Room for Magic]]'' is Roy, [[http://www.noroomformagic.com/d/20050915.html whose dad turned him into a werewolf]] so that he could survive gym class. [[http://www.noroomformagic.com/d/20051208.html It's made him less shy, but he feels compelled to sniff strangers' butts]].

Some clarification on this: Samantha's Werewolf state is a trait of her bloodline, and when the first member of her family to undergo this transformation was given an amulet from the Wotch of that time in order to protect his mind (the body still had to undergo the transformation, but the individual's mind would remain unchanged), it became a true gift to the family. This is because when a new member of the family was born, a new amulet would appear for them to use. Eventually the power of the amulet became so intertwined with the bloodline, that the amulets were no longer needed after a given point. Branches of the family still keep hold of them however in order to show their gratitude for the Wotch's gift, and when Samantha's friend Katie first becomes a Werecat, the amulet is now needed for her in order to prevent a loss of control. A possible ending to the side story that explains this shows that the amulets will now appear for Katie's family line.

This is treated differently than "standard" lycanthropy, which is contagious, but it's also difficult to cure because you can't really get rid of the inner beast without killing a person's will to live, and getting it to settle back down is the only way. Kili and Greg have to wear magical arm-bands and exercise a lot to burn off their excess energy, and one side-effect is that their hair is now [[RapunzelHair incredibly long]]. While they're not contagious in the traditional sense, the possibility of Kili and Greg adopting a child recently came up and she was concerned that the kid would develop lycanthropy from allowing her parents souls rubbing off on her.
* ''Webcomic/FamilyMan'' features an entire town based around the local werewolf population, though the majority of townspeople are by no means werewolves. Lycanthropy, in females, at least, seems
to coincide with menstruation, and the transformation is preceded by a ritual including the donning of a wolf skin. Evidence suggests that werewolves can arise from genetic inheritance ''and'' from...some means of transmission. At least, that's what we know so far: there's still much to be revealed on the subject.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' the Werewolf of London, Ontario is a member of the Legion of Canadian Superheroes. He's mastered most of the usual werewolf problems, but ended up spending so much time trying to maintain his wolfman form for longer periods that he's forgotten how to turn human again, which isn't too much of a problem as Canadian superheroes [[SuperRegistrationAct don't have secret identities]]. When there's reported sightings of a female werewolf in Columbus, London is called over and he eagerly accepts, but the "werewolf" turns out to be an anthropomorphic Cerberus named Minerva who's hunting escaped evil spirits. They go on a date later and Minerva accidentally gets infected with lycanthropy, allowing her to turn into a three-headed human.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'' the ''Webcomic/TheWotch'' has a few lycanthropic minor characters including a hereditary werewolf (Samantha "Wolfie" Wolfe). Transformations occur involuntarily under a full moon (or a spell capable of duplicating those conditions), and victims lose their normal personalities while transformed (though both above characters can overcome this thanks to a magic amulet).\\
\\
Some clarification on this: Samantha's
Werewolf of London, Ontario state is a trait of her bloodline, and when the first member of her family to undergo this transformation was given an amulet from the Wotch of that time in order to protect his mind (the body still had to undergo the transformation, but the individual's mind would remain unchanged), it became a true gift to the family. This is because when a new member of the Legion of Canadian Superheroes. He's mastered most family was born, a new amulet would appear for them to use. Eventually the power of the usual werewolf problems, but ended up spending amulet became so much time trying to maintain his wolfman form for intertwined with the bloodline, that the amulets were no longer periods needed after a given point. Branches of the family still keep hold of them however in order to show their gratitude for the Wotch's gift, and when Samantha's friend Katie first becomes a Werecat, the amulet is now needed for her in order to prevent a loss of control. A possible ending to the side story that explains this shows that the amulets will now appear for Katie's family line.
* Wally from ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl'' can transform to a wolf or wolf-man and change his size to some degree, but only at night -
he's forgotten how to turn human again, which isn't too much of a problem as Canadian superheroes [[SuperRegistrationAct don't have secret identities]]. When there's reported sightings of a female werewolf in Columbus, London is called over and stuck on whatever shape he eagerly accepts, but takes during the "werewolf" turns out day. His power level seems tied to be an anthropomorphic Cerberus named Minerva who's hunting escaped evil spirits. They go on a date later and Minerva accidentally gets infected with lycanthropy, allowing her to his status within the "pack" - his old alpha could turn into a three-headed human.wolf the size of a ''house''.

It's an infectious disease, they change every month at the full moon, and have to kill an innocent during that time. According to an in-game book, however, despite their appearances, Werewolves are mostly herbivorous and the reason they go after people is unknown, though the author theorizes that it could be a result of madness or out of need to [[BizarreAlienReproduction spread their lycanthropy as a form of procreation.]]
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' (from the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion), it's infectious, they change every night, and have to kill a person in that time or they are weakened (damaged health) when they revert back to humanoid-form.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', werewolves are created through a ritual involving drinking the blood of another werewolf. They can change into their powerful beastforms anytime they want every 24 hours. They also retain full control of themselves and gain a lifelong immunity to disease. The downside? For one thing, it's impossible to get a good night's sleep since the beast blood within werewolves makes them restless. Also, the beast form isn't all that powerful (at least until the release of Dawnguard) and there's no way to heal yourself with spells or potions while in beast form, requiring you to feed on your enemies in order to get health back. Lastly, if werewolves die with their lycanthropy untreated (removing it is possible but very difficult), their lycanthropy manifests as wolf spirits that drag their souls to the realm of Hircine, Daedric Prince of the Hunt and the creator of lycanthropy.\\

The only cure for being a werewolf turns out to be [[spoiler:killing a Glenmoril Witch, taking her head, and then casting it into the fire of the Tomb of Ysgramor, which will exorcise the wolf spirit of whoever is brought into the chamber, which you then have to kill in order to cure them]].\\

* ''Magazine/ForteanTimes'' recently reported on a rabbinical rationale dating from the fourteenth century that addressed the problem of werewolves in Jewish belief. Living as outsiders in Central Europe, Jews would have been fully aware of the belief in werewolves prevelant in the Gentile world around them. the issue was not ''if'' werewolves existed - it was tken as given that they ''did''. Therefore G-d must have created them, or tolerated their creation by Satan. The problem was how this could be squared with Scripture. A theological argument was advanced that when G-d cursed the serpent in the Garden of Eden to lose its limbs and crawl on its belly hereafter, the Almighty, by default, bequeathed a shape-shifting ability on such creatures. Later in TheBible, the Nephilim come into the world and mate with the daughters of Man, thus introducing a degree of angelic stock into the human race. By default, the Nephilim included the fallen angels of Satan. By mating with human women they introduced the shape-shifting ability G-d cursed the serpent with. (which neatly explains ''all'' werecreatures).

A line in the Bible likens Benjamin to wolves who strike mercilessly from the night. Rabbinical thought asked - what if this is ''not'' a poetic metaphor, but literal description of a tribe of werewolves within the Jewish fold?
