* 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.]]

Werebeasts are creatures that can [[{{Shapeshifting}} transform]] between a human (or at least humanoid) form and an animal or animal-like form. They are also known as "werecreatures" or "were-animals". The prefix "were" comes from the Old English word "wer", meaning "man". The technical term for this is ''therianthropy'', from the [[GratuitousGreek Greek words]] for "beast" and "man". The better known ''lycanthropy'' comes from the Greek words for "wolf" and "man", and should only be used for {{werewolves}}. Such creatures can be found [[TheOldestOnesInTheBook in the mythology of many cultures]], and the myths have inspired the frequent use of werecreatures in modern SpeculativeFiction, particularly {{Fantasy}} and {{Horror}}.
