This page is the SuperTrope for all therianthropes. The preference for examples on this trope is for creatures explicity called "were", however very similar cases of human-animal transformation can also be listed, if the nature of the character or creature is strongly linked to a specific animal species. Creatures that can turn into any sort of creature or multiple types of creatures should not be listed here, but on the pages for VoluntaryShapeshifting or {{Animorphism}}.

* The minor character Bayr in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'' is a gigantic werebear and proudly shows off his bear form to George. George, who hasn't bothered to tell the guy that he's an ((VoluntaryShapeshifting unlimited shapeshifter)) who can easily turn into a dragon, is not at all impressed, though he pretends to be.

* Franchise/MonsterHigh features no fewer than five named werecats, with Toralei, who is a tiger-like calico, her girl posse, Meowlody and Purrsephone being house cats, the black cat pop star Catty Noir, and the Scarisian artist, Catrine [=DeMew=], who is pure white.
** The main werewolves also count; until the reboot, they were simply wolfish humanoids with fur, pointy ears, and canine teeth. Post-reboot, the detail is added that they can transform into completely animalistic wolves.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' spy/supernatural/political/general murderous mayhem thriller ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5952595/1/Why-and-were Why and Were]]'', the dynamic balance of the city of Ankh-Morpork is upset by new arrivals, diplomatic staff accredited to an Howondalandian Embassy. For a long time, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Angua von Uberwald]] has considered her own kind to be the only were-creatures still living on the Disc. But new arrivals from Darkest Howondaland prove her to be utterly wrong. The axiom about two kinds of creatures fighting like cat and dog is proven to be literally correct when Werewolf meets Wereleopard for the first time. Ankh-Morpork is suddenly a far more interesting - and dangerous - place to live in.
** Also, werewolves are born shapeshifters, whilst wereleopards use magical rituals that involve binding an animal's spirit to a human host to create an enchanted skin, which they don in order to assume beast-shape and remove to resume human-shape. [[spoiler: Except that the ritual & enchanted pelt is actually how ''all'' shapeshifters do it or originally did it; way back in ancient history, werewolves managed to breed shapeshifting into an inherent ability through a selective breeding program of wolf-shifters with each other, with humans and with wolves; they then used this ability to drive off or slay the other shapeshifter tribes, then told themselves they are and were the only shifting species. The fic ends revealing the birth of the first natural-shifter wereleopard in Howondaaland.]]
