* Fenris from the ''ComicBook/{{Lucifer}}'' comics manages to take revenge for his fellow mythologies by stomping into a story arc almost entirely populated by Judeo-Christian characters and instantly becoming one of the most threatening antagonists. When one challenges him for this he points out that before humanity cowered before demons they feared the wolves beneath the trees, proceeding to become the BigBad through raw {{Badass}}ery.

* Music/EgoLikeness seems to like this trope a lot, as the lyrics of both "Wolves" and "Where the Wolves Return" refer to the singer being torn apart by wolves. In both instances, this trope overlaps with NobleWolf.

* ''Literature/WhiteFang'' - For a Disney film, the scenes where the characters are being hunted by a pack of wolves in the opening 20 minutes or so is almost downright terrifying.
* In ''NeverCryWolf'', another Disney film, Tyler is at first afraid of the wolves and has a nightmare about being chased by them. Subverted when he actually meets the wolves, and they're nothing like that.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' sets up this trope by making the wolf/hyena mix Pokemon Poochyena and Mightyena Dark-types (which is called the "Evil"-type in Japan) with very nasty bites and the Attack-boosting move Howl, but subverts this trope by revealing in the Pokedex that they're actually very loyal to their trainer.

** Midnight form Lycanroc, a nocturnal, red-furred bipedal wolf, is a very aggressive BloodKnight who revels in battling and fighting, and is an extremely dirty fighter to boot, deliberately taunting and luring in opponents before finishing them off with a savage blow. In this, it contrasted with its species' other variant, the NobleWolf Midday form.

** Even perfectly healthy wolves in Europe and Asia during history times would regard humans as food. This was due to many unarmed humans in being rurals areas and there being few hunters reinforcing the fear of humans into the carnivores. To packs of hungry wolves who'd had a lot of their prey driven off by settlement, livestock and the unarmed humans tending to them were easy targets.

* In the ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' expansion ''Far Harbour'', mutated wolves are one of the types of creatures inhabiting the Island. Not as visibly mutated as other creatures in the franchise, they are individually weak but attack in packs, with one or two going for a frontal charge and the rest of the pack attempting to flank the player. Like with most other enemies, more heavily mutated "elite" variations exist (such as rabid ones, or ones so heavily irradiated they glow), with stronger variants usually leading packs of weaker ones.

* While healthy wolves typically avoid humans, wolves infected with rabies are vicious and destructive to a degree far greater than their domesticated counterparts. There are records of solitary rabid wolves entering camps and military outposts and attacking over a dozen people in a single rampage (and in turn dooming them to one of the most horrible deaths imaginable). Some historians even argue that the viciousness of rabid wolves may have played a large role in the reputation that wolves had in previous centuries.
