The Moon Is Always Full
Whenever the moon is depicted, it will almost always be full.

The moon is only ever truly full one day every four weeks, but fiction depicts it being full far more often, particularly in horror settings. This has surprisingly deep cultural roots. In the old days, it was believed that the full moon was the time when supernatural forces were at their strongest, and also caused strange behavior in humans (this is where the term 'lunacy' comes from).

Expect the moon to be full at the worst possible time when werewolves are involved.
