* Myth/ClassicalMythology has one of the oldest examples of a werewolf. A king named Lycaon tried to serve [[FilialCannibalism the flesh of his own son Nyctimus]] as a [[HumanSacrifice meal for Zeus]]. But instead, [[EveryoneHasStandards Zeus punished Lycaon]] by changing him into a wolf.

* Creator/DCComics has Anthony Lupus, a werewolf who has fought Franchise/{{Batman}} a couple of times. Lupus was an Olympic athlete who was given a serum by [[MadScientist Dr Milo]] that transforms every full moon. The first appearance of Lupus was loosely adapted into the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Moon of the Wolf", where Lupus' [[MeaningfulName name]] was changed into the slightly less obvious [[note]]although remember who the mythical founders of Rome were {{raised by|Wolves}}[[/note]] Anthony Romulus.

** Lar-On is a Kryptonian werewolf whom Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/{{Batman}} fought in ''World's Finest #256'' (way back in the Bronze Age) and who fought ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' in ''Comicbook/SupergirlRebirth''. His lycanthropy was a sickness caused by Red Kryptonite poisoning (Red-K does weird things to Kryptonians as opposite to the lethal and most famous green type). He turns into a muscled, huge, purple-red, humanoid wolf with firey EyeBeams.

* ''Literature/BlackCompany'' mentions a few, but in action participates only Forvalaka -- were-leopards. [[TheUndead Undead]] were-leopards. Vicious, superhumanly fast and almost unkillable.
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/RoguesInTheHouse'', Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian invokes this to reason that the BeastMan is possible.
-->''Everyone knows there are men who take the form of wolves at will''.

* Werewolves in ''ComicBook/{{Crimson}}'' were descendants of Cain after he murdered Abel under the influence of an angelic sword that made him kill his brother. Their condition is seemingly hereditary rather than transmitted through bites like [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampirism]]. They are capable of transforming at will and retain some sense of control and speech in transformed form.

** ConservationOfMass is also very much in effect. It doesn't affect the protagonist very much since a relatively normal-sized man will make an impressively large wolf (largest recorded wolf: 175 lbs/79 kg), but at one point he engages in battle with a were-tiger, and the man in question before he changes is described as tall and ridiculously obese in order to have sufficient mass to be a large, powerful tiger (large Siberian tiger: up to 800+ lbs/360 kg.)

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', Valkenhayn R. Hellsing, Rachel's [[MemeticBadass Badass]] BattleButler is a werewolf. Contrary to most examples, he's very cultured and cool-headed. Not only is he capable of changing into a wolf completely (or even partially) at will, it's actually a part of his gameplay. In wolf form he's much faster and has some powerful moves, but he can't block.
