* Beorn, in ''Film/TheHobbit'', is a "skin-changer" who dislikes (most) dwarfs, but ''hates'' orcs/goblins. As a man, he can be reasoned with, but not as a bear.

Primarily detailed in many Native American tales, these entities are sometimes portrayed as either practicing witches, or aspects of the trickster deity (Coyote) or something [[EldritchAbomination worse]], from the shared mythology of many indigenous American peoples, Skinwalkers are considered one of the most fearsome monsters from NativeAmericanMythology. In those myths, they have a few extra powers, including {{Telepathy}}, VoiceChangeling (mimicing animal and human sounds) and the creation of poisonous/disease ridden "Witch Powder" or the MagicalEye. Some cannot fully shift into their animal forms and have a [[GlamourFailure deformity]] (awkward gait, over-sized feet, etc.) revealing their true nature.

** ''Literature/SkinGame'' has [[spoiler: Goodman Grey, who is part-skinwalker (apparently on his father's side). Unlike the one seen in ''Turn Coat', Grey is at least trying to be a decent person, as is shown by his helping Dresden to ''break into the underworld''...for the [[ComicallySmallDemand massive sum]] of one dollar.]]
