* The manga ''{{Cowa}}'' has the main character who is a werekoala and also part vampire.
* Saiyans in ''DragonBall'' transform into giant rampaging monkeys when they see the light of a full moon. Cutting off their tails prevents this, but until they reach a certain age, it will grow back under said full moon.
* ''FruitsBasket'': The Sohma family is under a curse that causes InvoluntaryShapeshifting into animal form when hugged by members of the opposite sex that are not relatives. While not called werebeasts, each member has a single and unique alternate animal form. The animals are those of the EasternZodiac: rat, dog, tiger, rabbit, dragon (he actually turns into a seahorse), ox, snake, sheep, monkey, horse, pig and rooster; plus cat.
* The chimeras in Manga/FullMetalAlchemist are combinations of animals, which can and does sometimes include humans. As the manga progresses, the humanoid chimeras go from being tragic abominations, to quirky mutants, to tough guys that [[VoluntaryTransformation can turn into even tougher beast-men]].
* Zoan fruits in ''OnePiece'' turn the recipents into werebeasts. They tend to be dangerous mass of muscle even if the template creature was relatively harmless (this is also a general tendency among werebeast. A werehamster can be as dangerous as a werewolf).
** Essentially, it depends on the user's own skills and creativity, as with all devil fruit users. Used properly, a devil fruit can enhance a person's already powerful skills. Used improperly, the person becomes overly dependent on that devil fruit and can easily be defeated by anyone who has actual fighting skills. Thus, if someone has an elephant zoan fruit, but is an average joe otherwise, they can be easily defeated by someone with a mouse zoan if the mouse zoan has more expertise. This is hilariously demonstrated by Kaku of [=CP9=], a ''weregiraffe'' stronger than the actual ''werewolf'' in the group.
* C'tarl C'tarl from ''OutlawStar'' are werecats with several intermediate forms (Fuzzy Space-Elf to [[CatGirl Cat Person]] to Buff Superpowered [[PettingZooPeople Cat Person]] to [[PantheraAwesome Giant Tiger]]) whose access are dependent on the presence and phase of a moon and on their own personal energy reserves.
* Evangelion Unit-02 from RebuildOfEvangelion can "shed its human form" when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7NZESmjjJM given the secret password]] "The Beast".
* Blair from ''SoulEater'' is a cat that frequently takes a CatGirl form that looks mostly human except for her cat ears and tail.
