* ''Fanfic/HopeForTheHeartless'' has as minor antagonists a pack of thirty-five AxCrazy wolves (fittingly called the Mad Pack) that have terrorized [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron Prydain's]] animals and humans for twenty years. They suffer from an incurable disease similar to rabies that has robbed them of all reason and natural instincts. They live only for killing, attacking on sight ''anything'' that moves. They're so crazed that they dare to fight ''[[VillainProtagonist the Horned King]]'' who strikes [[WalkingWasteland fear in all living creatures]]. Fortunately, [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork he kills them all]] when they're about to kill [[MoralityPet Avalina]] and [[CoolHorse Mitternacht]] in a scene similar to the infamous one in Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.

* ''The Last Dogs'' has a wolf pack led by Dolph, the main antagonist of the four books. He's so consumed by revenge on Max the Labrador retriever that he and his pack [[SuperPersistentPredator follow him and his small dog companions]] [[TheDeterminator from the plains to the swamp and even to the desert]]. In one book, Dolph is even shown to not be afraid of humans and even attacks them in the last book, which leads to his [[HoistByHisOwnPetard defeat]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFlightBeforeChristmas'' has [[DarkIsEvil Black Wolf]] and his pack hell-bent on eating Santa and his flying reindeer so that the world can be their buffet. The only exception to this trope is Specks, a skinny wolf who befriends a lost poodle and protects her when Black Wolf makes a threat towards her.
** The sequel introduces Black Wolf's sister, a white she-wolf wanting revenge on Niko for causing her brother's death. She even has [[FeatheredFiend eagles]] working with her as her minions as well as transportation.

* The Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} has one in the form of the white wolf, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Primate Murder]]. Though it's never directly appeared in any of the franchise's main works, the [[GaiasVengeance beast]] is easily one of, if not ''the'', most dangerous creatures in the setting thanks to its signature ability: [[KillAllHumans The absolute authority to decide whether a human lives or dies.]] Ranked as #1 of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Twenty-Seven Dead Apostle Ancestors]], the only thing keeping Primate Murder from enacting a mass genocide is the fact that [[VampireMonarch Altrouge Brunestud]] has somehow bent it to her will.

** Kind of played straight, kind of averted with CP9 member Jabra, who ate the Dog Dog Fruit: Model Wolf. While he is an assassin for the World Government whose quite strong and is quite brutal with his attacks, he doesn't believe in drawing out a job and causing more pain then required to his enemies, preferring to get it done as quick and smoothly as possible.

* Wolves in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' are green most of the time. The [[http://magiccards.info/mm/en/252.html pack aspect]] tends to get played up on wolf-related cards too, often with some ability to lead [[http://magiccards.info/wwk/en/118.html more wolves]] to join the fray, [[http://magiccards.info/dka/en/141.html boost other wolves]], or become [[http://magiccards.info/soi/en/164.html more effective]] themselves if joined by other wolves.

** This trope is especially emphasized on Innistrad, a place heavily inspired by GothicHorror. Decks set on Innistrad tend to have a lot more wolves than other decks, and the flavor and rules of these cards tend to present them as a lot more aggressive and dangerous than wolves on other planes are written as. They also have a close relationship with the plane's vicious [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]]; while they don't actually spread lycanthropy as the plane's natives believe, they are noted to often hunt alongside their monstrous kin.
-->''Wolves and werewolves join together for the common cause of the hunt.'' -- flavor text for Howlpack Wolf.

* While very few wolf attacks have been verified in the US and Canada, wolves in Europe and Asia are far more aggressive, particularly in Europe after the 14th century when the buildup of dead bodies caused by the Black Death allowed them an easy source of food, giving many a taste for human flesh and a habit of frequenting villages, city outskirts and major roads in the process. Special structures were reportedly built along highways for travelers to take refuge from roving packs in.

* While very few wolf attacks have been verified in the US and Canada, Canada[[note]] Whether thatís due to wolf attacks actually being rare or the wolves being smart enough to leave no evidence/witnesses is a topic of some debate. Itís common enough for people to disappear in wilderness known to be wolf habitat, [[NotMeThisTime but theyíre hardly the only danger out there]][[/note]], wolves in Europe and Asia are far more aggressive, particularly in Europe after the 14th century when the buildup of dead bodies caused by the Black Death allowed them an easy source of food, giving many a taste for human flesh and a habit of frequenting villages, city outskirts and major roads in the process.

* The Irish word for wolf, ''mac tíre'' ("son of the land"), is believed to be a flattering nickname invented to allow the Irish to speak of wolves without [[SpeakOfTheDevil incurring their wrath]], similar to ''varg'' above. Like most European words for wolf, their original name was likely cognate with ''olc'', the modern Irish word for "evil".
** A once-common British term for Ireland was "Wolfland", with the lack of organized attempts by the Irish to exterminate wolves being taken as a sign that they were [[BarbarianTribe just as savage as the wolves themselves]].
