* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' universe features a variety of therianthropic creatures, including werewolves, wereboars, werelions, werecrocodiles, werebears werevultures and even [[UnreliableNarrator possibly]] weresharks. Apart from werewolves, werebears and wereboars, all of these were only mentioned in the in-universe book "On Lycanthropy" in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]''.
** Werebears finally make an appearance in ''Dragonborn'', the second DLC for ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]''.
** While the information in ''On Lycanthropy'' is obviously outdated, seeing as what it stated was the dominant strain in the province of Skyrim is ''completely'' absent from the game of ''Skyrim'' (up until the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, which doesn't even take place in Skyrim, and in fact had been visited and confirmed as werebear-free in a previous game), one thing it says is consistently indicated by the games: werewolves are the most ubiquitous, common form of lycanthropy in Tamriel, and that is why it is traditionally called lycanthropy even if it only strictly should refer to werewolves.

details of the information in ''On Lycanthropy'' condition, like [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampirism]], Lycanthropy is obviously outdated, seeing as what it stated was [[ViralTransformation technically a disease]] and can be spread through any wound inflicted by an infected individual. It is easily cured within the dominant strain in first few days of being contracted, but once it fully progresses, it becomes far more difficult to cure. There are also rare instances of the province disease being hereditary. The exact effects of Skyrim is ''completely'' absent from the game of ''Skyrim'' (up until the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, which doesn't even take place in Skyrim, disease vary greatly between individuals and in fact had been visited and confirmed as werebear-free in a previous game), one thing it says is consistently indicated by the games: werewolves are the regions. The most ubiquitous, common effect is an [[InvoluntaryShapeshifter involuntary transformation]] into a humanoid beast form at night, with the frequency of lycanthropy the transformation varying from nightly to monthly. Other individuals have the ability to [[SuperMode transform voluntarily]]. For those who transform involuntarily, they must commonly [[HorrorHunger kill a sentient being]] during the night or risk returning to their mortal form in Tamriel, and that an extremely weakened state. Lycanthropy is why a creation of Hircine, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheWildHunt the Hunt]], who bestows it is traditionally called lycanthropy even if it only strictly should refer as a blessing. He considers were-creatures to werewolves.be the epitome of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the nature of a hunt]]. During the night, they are vicious beasts who hunt their prey. During the day, they [[TheHunterBecomesTheHunted become the hunted]] to the very same prey. Were-creatures also have a spiritual connection to Hircine, as he [[YourSoulIsMine claims their souls]] upon death to forever serve in his realm of Oblivion, known as the Hunting Grounds. Additional details are available on the ''Elder Scrolls'' "[[Characters/TheElderScrollsOtherRaces Other Races]]" sub-page.

* Pictured on the main OurWerebeastsAreDifferent page are the animal forms of the Norn race from ''GuildWars2'', they have a pantheon of animal spirits that they worship, but venerate four above all the rest for directly aiding them in an exodus from their homeland, besides the bear and wolf (they lack boar in-game, interestingly) pictured above, there's also the raven and snow leopard forms.
