* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The Wyrm himself. He originally had the duty of removing the dead or broken parts of the universe, but wasn't really evil. Then he got trapped somehow (the books are [[NoodleIncident rather vague about exactly what happened]]) and went insane, creating most of the bad stuff in the world.

** The Black Spiral Dancers saw nothing wrong with cultivating madness and dysfunction among their members. The tribe grew weak as a result, allowing other fallen Garou tribes to take charge of them, absorb them, or take their place as the Wyrm's favored servants in several scenarios.

* ItsPersonal All shapechangers hate vampires for one reason or another. The Silent Striders however, take it to a higher level. The tribe was originally based in Egypt. However an ancient ungodly powerful vampire (known as Set, and who was implied to be something just as bad before he became a vampire) placed a curse on them that forbade them from being in Egypt, dooming them to wander.

...except that it is already too late, your ancestors screwed up too badly, the enemy is too strong, [[WeAREStrugglingTogether you can't stop fighting with your allies]], and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the titular Apocalypse is inevitable]]. Only the heroes of mythic proportions can have any hope of limiting it to merely TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt instead of annihilation of all existence. But no matter how dim your changes of victory you must fight on, and therein lies the game.

** ''Rage Across Russia'' suggests that even Zmei (Wyrm dragons) are capable of redemption. The book states that Shazear can be turned away from the Wyrm back to the Wyld.

Added DiffLines:

** Earlier editions also noted that "Tribe" is as much upbringing and cultural identity as it is birth. A werewolf can be of White Howler blood, but with no extant White Howlers to induct them into the Tribe, they have to join another Tribe or be Ronin by default. White Wolf also eventually published rules letting werewolves be Embraced and become vampire-werewolf hybrids called Abominations, and it's almost impossible to pull off (requiring the prospective Abomination to ''botch'' a Gnosis role to not just die during the Embrace, and the best way to survive long-term as an Abomination is to give one's soul over to the Wyrm completely.

* ValuesDissonance: The source of many, many InUniverse conflicts. Some tribes are pretty much opposite to each other in every way, except for their general goal to protect Gaia, for example Glass Walkers/Red Talons or Silver Fangs/Bone Gnawers. Also can happen with players, as some tribes have pretty radical or even literally inhuman anti-human worldviews.

Added DiffLines:

* ToxicPhlebotinum: Balefire. Black Spiral Dancers can throw or spew balefire at opponents, with devastating results. The substance also has ceremonial importance to the tribe and has been incorporated into some of their rituals, such as the Rite of the Vengeful Spider. However, exposure to balefire over the centuries has produced mutations among the Black Spiral Dancers. Moreover, some Black Spiral Dancers expose themselves to balefire in the hopes of gleaning insight, only to receive burns or tumors as a result.

* TheGrotesque: Garou are forbidden from mating with each other. Whether that means any romantic involvement or just making babies depends on the tribe, but the products of such unions are known as Metis; deformed, sterile wretches that often rip through their mother's womb upon birth. For most shapeshifters that even ''can'' produce babies from such unions, the resulting Metis are just as deformed. The Glass Walkers are (in)famous for keeping all their metis - even those too deformed to fight - and adopting every metis they learn of. Hey, they have higher Gnosis than homid Garou, and don't have to be trained to walk on human legs.

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The first edition of the game featured the Seventh Generation, a cult that abused and sacrificed children to the Defiler Wyrm. The Seventh Generation may have been a shout-out to the "Satanic panic" of the 1980s and early 1990s, in which people feared that large-scale Satanic cults were abusing and sacrificing children.
