* In ''Baby Bear and the Big Bad Wolf'', the Wolf is, strangely, the same character as the witch in HanselAndGretel. They are defeated by [[GoldilocksAndTheThreeBears Goldilocks]], the pigs, Baby Bear, and Hansel and Gretel invoking NeverTheSelvesShallMeet.

* The Big Bad Wolf appears in an episode of ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'', in an ultraviolent adaptation of "The Three Little Pigs". This version of the wolf is [[SmarterThanYouLook far more intelligent and cunning than the canon version]]; he eats and kills the first two pigs by tricking them into opening the door instead of simply blowing the house down (which he already tried) and frames the third for the crime with the help of an [[KangarooCourt all-wolf jury]]. When the third pig escapes and takes revenge on the wolf, [[spoiler: he ultimately revives as a zombie and [[TheBadGuyWins kills the third pig]].]]

* ''HardCandy'' is one particulary disturbing modern version of Little Red Riding Hood, with a girl who calls herself Haley in the role of Little Red Riding Hood [[spoiler:as well as the woodsman]]. An Internet pedophile named Jeff fills the role of the Big Bad Wolf, luring Haley over to his place under false pretenses and then starts trying to get her drunk. It goes downhill from there, but [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted maybe not exactly in the way Jeff had planned...]]

He's actually [[AdaptationalHeroism one of the good guys, and is best friends with the pigs]], but can still huff and puff and blow a house - or a squad of the villain's mooks - down with ease.

* The Big Bad Wolf in ''The Big Bad Wolf and Me'' has fallen on hard times - no one believes in him anymore, and a little boy helps him get his confidence back.
* In ''Little Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!'', the Wolf is a vegetarian...most of the time. He claims to have mistaken Red and her grandmother, both self-absorbed {{Jerkass}}es, for apples.

* In a Russian adaptation of the Red Riding Hood story, the brutish Wolf is aided by a [[CunningLikeAFox fox]] who [[TheStarscream secretly plans to let the Wolf be chased out of the forest after he eats Red]]. They are eventually dealt with by the woodsman and Red's friends - a bear, a rabbit, and a grass snake.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has the Opera event in Karazhan, which sometimes tells the tale of Little Red Riding Hood - the wolf is the boss encounter, chasing after one of the players designated as the girl (and turned into a gnome in appropriate attire)

* [[Creator/DisneyChannel Disney Junior]]'s ''[[WesternAnimation/GoldieAndBear Goldie & Bear]]'' has the Big Bad Wolf, or "Big Bad," as a somewhat comic and goofy, bumbling villain who's trouble for the Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and the two title characters. This may or may not be the same Disney Big Bad Wolf mentioned above, though he too is voiced by Creator/JimCummings. As a relatively softer version of the character, he has occasional PetTheDog moments - when his schemes cause serious harm, he's usually genuinely remorseful.

* In ''Petya and Little Red Riding Hood'', a GenreSavvy Boy Scout named Petya enters the world of [[MediumAwareness a Little Red Riding Hood cartoon]]. Petya proceeds to utterly derail the story - he distracts the wolf, warns Grandma ahead of time that the wolf is coming, tricks him into eating a SleepingDummy, and takes Red's place when confronting him. The wolf is dismayed when Petya doesn't give the traditional "What big..." exchange. When Petya's plan backfires, Red returns the favor by summoning two hunters for a BigDamnHeroes rescue.

When the Big Bad Wolf appears in works of fiction, there are usually some common themes included, such as his predation on [[WouldHurtAChild children]], pigs and [[LittleDeadRidingHood innocent young women in red]], his [[MasterOfDisguise knack for disguising himself]] (used to fool Little Red Riding Hood), and his [[BlowYouAway powerful lungs]] (used to destroy the two of the Three Little Pigs' houses). Adult-oriented fairytale retellings since the seventies or so have developed a tradition in which he is often either a werewolf or a reverse werewolf (a wolf who turns into a human). He's also been known to appear [[AWolfInSheepsClothing in sheep's clothing]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WebComic/KevinAndKell'', Kell and her son Rudy claim to be descended from the Big Bad Wolf. Kell later proves it by blowing all the leaves off their home, and later the layer of shedded fur that was causing gridlock in Domain. Note that along with them, Kell's brother Ralph has the same claim. So does Kell's daughter Coney and Ralph's daughter Corrie (and Corrie's clone Mary). What makes those last claimants unusual is that Coney's a ''rabbit'' and Corrie and Mary are ''sheep''.
