** In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'',both regular Wolves, Wargs, and {{Werewolves}} appear in service of the evil forces in contrast to the heroic dogs. Unlike traditional incarnations, Middle Earth werewolves do not take humanoid form. The Werewolves are led by their progenitor, Draugluin (Sindarin for "Blue Wolf"), and his most terrible offspring Carcharoth. Sauron briefly takes the form of a werewolf to fight the HeroicDog Huan.

** Packs of intelligent wolves (called Wargs) threaten the main characters of both ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', and are allies to the goblins of the Misty Mountains. However, Tolkien does make a distinction between regular, rarely dangerous wolves, and the decidedly more monstrous Wargs, who always directly serve the bad guys in his legendarium.

* Arcturus Mengsk in ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' [[VillainWithGoodPublicity wants people]] to see the wolves on his family crest as [[NobleWolf Noble Wolves]]. [[ManipulativeBastard This is a complete lie]], and "cruel, nasty, and sadistic" isn't even a start on his true nature. (Although both his father and son, under the same crest, were much nicer people. Maybe he's a fluke?)

* One of the symbols of Ancient Rome was the wolf. This grew out of legends that Romulus and Remus, founders of Rome, were literally RaisedByWolves. However, contrary to modern perceptions, they didn't adopt the wolf because of any inherent "specialness" attributed - they hated the animal just as much as everyone else around them. Rather, the story is symbolic of how vicious the Romans saw themselves to be.
