* ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/309351/principal-celestia-hunts-the-undead Principal Celestia Hunts the Undead]]'': A ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' fic where, among other developments, [[spoiler: Fluttershy turns out to be a were-''manatee'', who was turned as a child in order to save her from drowning. She can transform of her own free will most of the time, but if she's in water during the full moon, the transformation automatically kicks in and her manatee side takes over. Meaning that she's suddenly an enormous sea creature that can only think about gorging itself on sea-grass.]] Sunset is rather dumbfounded by the whole thing, but accepting of her friend's secret.

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}}.

* ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'' has a were-cat named Boo Cat in a sexual relationship with a Vampire named Liquorice Dust. At least 3 of the vampire's friends don't mind, and have joined in. However, the same issue had a werewolf who had very different ideas on inter-species romances. It also featured an Anvilicious speech, a Stripperiffic Little Red Riding Hood costume, and an example of why you shouldn't try to force your tongue down the throat of an angry were-creature.

** 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.]]
