Added DiffLines:

* The werewolves in ''Literature/{{Newshound}}'' can transform between human and wolf form mostly at will. They have a set of wolf instincts which are present at all times in both forms, acting as a sort-of backseat driver in human form and taking over completely in wolf form. While there's no fixed schedule for shifting, going too long between shifts results in increased mental pressure from the wolf instincts, and risks an uncontrolled shift. Werewolf packs are essentially support groups for dealing with the psychological issues stemming from the conflicting demands of the human and lupine halves. While werewolves have accelerated healing and hyperactive metabolisms to accommodate their shapeshifting, shifting is still incredibly painful (and more than a little unpleasant to look at).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Petow}}'': Apparently they can be detected with genetic testing, and is passed down family lines. Werewolves are the most common, and are said to be more aggressive.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': Transmissible via bites, and can be affected by a certain substance, like how catnip affects cats. They also get the MostCommonSuperPower or BiggerIsBetterInBed, if female, or male, respectively.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', you have Werewolves and Wereboars. 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 the ''Literature/LonelyWerewolfGirl'' books, werewolves are mainly vulnerable only to silver, certain magic weapons, and other werewolves; they have accelerated healing only in werewolf form though. Speaking of werewolf shapes, they have three modes: human-looking, a wolf-man[=/=]woman half and half mode, and a full wolf mode. They must change on the night of the full moon into one of the latter, but "royal werewolves" can change at any time so long as it is dark outside. A lunar eclipse [[ShapeshifterModeLock locks]] them into their human forms, and make them ill while it passes. They are born werewolves (although BigBad Sarapen does have a human minion who thinks Sarapen is going to turn him into a werewolf if he serves well enough. Since Sarapen gives him the old "YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness" treatment the question is left open). Having been born in wolf shape, while her mother was in wolf shape, on the night of the full moon, protagonist Kalix feels as if she lives in a permanent lunar eclipse.

As Shelena explains, werewolves can mate with other werewolves, humans and wolves, but the first option is usually not even wished on one's enemy because the resulting offspring gnaws its way into the world, killing the mother. Mating with wolves is considered a degenerate thing to do for any self-respecting werewolf, meaning that the only viable options of procreation are mating with humans or by bite, although apparently the latter doesn't always work.

* In ''Literature/LoyalEnemies'', main character is a she-werewolf. One of the footnotes state that there are many subspecies of werewolves, with Shelena belonging to "true werewolf" variety. She can turn into the wolf at will (it's slightly painful, and during the change her bones are brittle like eggshells), keeps her human mind in the wolf form and she can speak understandable human. She's extremely strong and fast in both forms and she can see in the dark, as well as define various plants' medical or poisonous properties by smelling them. Werewolfism is both hereditary and carried by bite, although apparently the latter doesn't always work.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Sorcery 101}}'', werewolves do not retain their full human consciousness, but they do seem to retain a certain level of control. For instance, even in his wolf form, Brad will not harm anyone he likes. Brad is also colorblind, because he is trying to keep his werewolfism under control. Werewolves in Sorcery101 turn into full wolves, without any form of humanism to them. Werewolves also have hyper healing powers. Also, there is a cure. If a werewolf has his tail removed, they become human again. However, any wound that they suffered as a werewolf will come back if cured. Werewolfism is also hereditary, as Brad's daughter has it without being bitten.

* WelcomeToHoxford by Ben Templesmith had a pack of werewolves running a prison/mental asylum, in order to hunt the inmates. These werewolves are huge, skeletal and vicious, and have a propensity for eating human flesh, though notably they lack the invulnerability many werewolves had, and can be killed with physical weapons. They also transform very squickily, and seem functionally ageless.

* In the ''Literature/MercyThompson'' series, lycanthropy is transmitted through a savage attack - most victims of werewolf attacks die of their injuries rather than turn into werewolves. Werewolves are forced to change at the full moon, but can also change more or less at will. Werewolves in human form are resistant to disease and poison, heal quickly, do not die of old age, and have ''very'' short tempers. For this reason, the average life expectancy for a wolf after becoming one is ten years. It is worth noting, however, that werewolves certainly don't ''always'' die young. The book takes place in the present day, and several wolves are thought to date from the Renaissance. There were even a few who called ''those'' young. [[spoiler:The Marrok]] is implied to have known [[spoiler:the real King Arthur (and therefore being the real Sir Marrok)]]. [[spoiler:Samuel, his son]] and [[spoiler:Asil the Moor]] are almost as old. Werewolves also have a kind of magic, called pack magic, which allows an Alpha to draw strength from his pack and control them. Pack magic also functions as a limited form of {{Glamour}}: normal people who see a shifted werewolf that isn't attacking are prone to thinking that it's just a BigFriendlyDog, which is one of the main ways that TheMascaraed was maintained until the werewolves came out in the first novel. Also, particularly powerful werewolves like Adam, the pack Alpha of the Tri-Cities area [[spoiler: and Mercy's eventual husband]] have the ability to adopt a bipedal man-wolf hybrid form if they want to, but it's rarely used.
