* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild" features wolves among the wildlife of Hyrule, with white wolves in the snowier mountain regions. In groups, they'll attack Link on sight (with their entry in the Compendium even claiming that humans are their main prey), but quickly retreat if any are wounded or killed. In contrast to the usual depiction of lone wolves, a singular wolf will always flee upon seeing Link.

* ''Literature/TheWolvesOfWilloughbyChase'': Im an alternate England where packs of wolves roam the 19th century Yorkshire countryside, the young heroine is almost killed when one such pack ''attacks a train''. She's only saved when the man sharing her carriage stabs the wolf that's got in with them to death.

* In ''Literature/WhiteFang'', wolves are presented as harsh and savage, but the hero, being part dog, eventually rises above his instincts to become "tamed"... after being forced into dog-fighting along the way, although "fight" is not accurate - "execution" comes closer. It got to the point where they had to tie him up for the start of the fight, otherwise he'd kill the other dog before it had finished its preliminary snarl-and-threaten routine. Once the dog had finished its routine, it would almost certainly not be any more merciful.

* 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 and badass the Romans saw themselves to be.

* One of the creatures available to you in ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite 2'' is a wolf that can be either a NobleWolf, a Savage Wolf, or something in between, depending on what you train it to do and how you [[KarmaMeter play the game in general.]] Its appearance is adjusted accordingly, with the evil version having larger fangs and claws, the good version being much lighter in color and smiling more often, and the neutral being intermediate between the two.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLongDark'', wolves are the main threat to your character's survival. The game offers a disclaimer that the wolves presented in game are abnormally aggressive due to the strange geomagnetic event that knocked out all electronics and caused the survivor's plane to crash in the Canadian wilderness, and ''in no way'' do the development team condone the unprovoked killing of wild animals in real life. Wolves wander around alone - lending credence to the idea that the geomagnetic event has affected their behaviour - and will chase and attack the survivor if they get too close, although the survivor is safe in indoor areas [[spoiler:with the exception of the Carter Dam in Mystery Lake, which has a particularly implacable wolf lurking inside]]. Wolves can be dealt with safely at range with the hunting rifle or the bow, or if the survivor has a hatchet or knife, an attacking wolf can be killed quickly in melee before they can inflict any major injuries, and they can also be temporarily deterred by flares, torches or campfires. {{Averted|Trope}} in Pilgrim, the game's Easy mode, where wolves are ([[TruthInTelevision more realistically]]) non-aggressive and will run away if the survivor gets too close.

** Reynardine falls under this indirectly, even though he's actually a fox. Since possessing Annie's wolf doll, he seems to be undergoing a slow HeelFaceTurn - in particular, he's noticeably less of a "jerkface" when he takes the form of a full-sized wolf, rather than his usual pint-sized plushy form.

* ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'': Wolfen are wolflike, man-eating monsters the size of a grown person. They hunt in packs thirty to forty strong and are one of the many kinds of monsters that the Labyrinth uses to torment and kill its Patryn prisoners.

* While ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' depicts wolves themselves are depicted as morally neutral and they are even available as companions for heroic characters, the monstrous Worgs (taken from Tolkien's "Wargs") and Winter Wolves are invariably evil and dangerous.

** Barghests are evil, shapeshifting creatures that in their natural form resemble monstrous wolves. They come from the [[{{Hell}} Lower Planes]], and come to the mortal world, where they usually set themselves up as the rulers of goblin bands, to feed, chiefly on people.

has Jezelda, a selection of evil wolves and wolf-like monsters, beginning with regular wolves and bigger, primal dire wolves (which are both technically TrueNeutral, not evil) and including the evil, monstrous worgs and white-furred winter wolves. A hierarchy of sorts actually exists in-universe among wolf-like monsters: winter wolves dominate mixed packs and bully their lesser cousins, with worgs coming below them and true wolves at the bottom.
** Barghests also show up, as evil extraplanar wolf-monsters that come to the mortal world to hunt and eat mortals.

** 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?)
