[[caption-width-right:350:Starting at top center and going clockwise: Constantine Nero, Gus Cramer, Jack and Carla Goodwin (hugging), Jean Goodwin, Sarah Hazen, Peter Stubbe, Sally and Walter Stubbe. In the center, scowling, is Rebecca "Butch" Cramer.]]

In a world where roughly one out of every thousand people is a werewolf, were-cat, or some other were-beast, [[MeaningfulName Peter Stubbe]] is a runt werewolf. [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent Disdained by his father]], [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer ridiculed by his pack]], he turned to a human, Sarah, [[InterspeciesRomance for companionship]]. Unfortunately nobody told him OurWerewolvesAreDifferent and [[TheVirus can transmit lycanthropy sexually]]. Now Sarah turns into [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever a gigantic werewolf]] with very large breasts... and Peter has to train her how to [[IncrediblyLamePun handle her new assets]], while dodging a ClingyJealousGirl and [[TheGovernment mysterious goons who nobody else notices]]... or else.

As anyone who has heard of Kris Overstreet should probably guess, ''[[http://www.peteristhewolf.com/ Peter Is the Wolf]]'' has an NSFW version with graphic sex. However, it also has a SFW version. Overstreet writes, while Benjamin Rodriguez (also known as BAR-1) illustrates.
----
This comic provides examples of:
* [[ACupAngst A/D-Cups Angst]]: Cherry Li, a were-racoon dog, is between flat and A in human form and up to D's in her wereform. Her self-esteem about her breast sizes goes down quite a bit first when she sees the werefox with larger breasts than her in either size, then she watches Sarah go from small to her [[GagBoobs giant form.]] The double MarshmallowHell didn't help things either.
* AbusiveParents:
** Butch's father was already a lazy, redneck {{Jerkass}}. When we found out he was making Butch act like an InnocentFanserviceGirl and his own personal maid, it was disturbing but mostly ignored by the fanbase, cause Butch was kinda a [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] antagonist too -- and we're shown that most of the werewolf women are nudists when shapeshifted. Then we discover [[spoiler: Gus has been sexually abusing her]], shoving him right over the [[MoralEventHorizon cliff]] and dragging Butch ''back''.
** Peter's dad Walt also counts, to a lesser extent. He's not happy about having a runt for a son, and makes absolutely no effort to hide it. Of course, Peter's dad has [[MyBelovedSmother other]] [[ICouldaBeenAContender issues]] that make him [[FreudianExcuse almost]] sympathetic.
* AllGirlsLikePonies:
** In Butch's "brilliant" plot to break up Peter and Sarah, she plans on bribing Jean with a pony. She even imagines a stick figure diagram of the plan, including Jean sitting on a pony with a smile on her face.
** A later plan by her just outright shows Jean being turned into a pony as part of it.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Arthur Hazen, Sarah's father. Not only does he consider privacy in the government to keep some matters quiet a sin. It is the same at home. His lack of tact and intrusiveness into Sarah's life was one of the biggest banes in her life before becoming a werewolf. Because of him, she went to Senior Prom alone, and he doesn't see this as a bad thing at all.
* AmazonChaser:
** While she wasn't very fit before, Sarah's wolf form being a huge muscular beast doesn't dissuade Peter's affections at all.
** For that matter [[spoiler:Jean admits she likes Sarah's body too, while asking her to get a chance for a three-some]].
* AnArmAndALeg: The father of Juniper and Fortitude Stebbings had his own legs removed soon after receiving a werewolf injury there, to prevent him from becoming a werewolf.
* {{Animesque}}: The art style, especially in the early arch’s.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: In the omake about a werewolf serving King Arthur, Sarah asks why Peter didn't talk about any dragons. Peter replied that everyone knows dragons don't exist. This coming from a man who knows wererats, werevixens, weretigers, werelions, werebears, werekitsunes, and weretakunis, and ''possibly'' vampires exist.
* AtArmsLength: As an instinctual thrall, Sarah does this to Butch as the smaller girl rushes at Sarah.
* AttemptedRape: [[spoiler:Rebecca with Peter; she backs out at the last possible moment.]]
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Sarah admits her werewolf-self has the attention span of goldfish. She once lost track of what someone was saying because a butterfly came to her attention.
* AuthorAppeal: Kris Overstreet famously has breast expansion, muscle growth (and matching decrease in intelligence), and oversized penis fetishes. All three are near-constant presences in the comic (and, well, pretty much anything else he has any involvement with).
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Peter and Human!Sarah. Werewolf!Sarah has no issue at all showing her affection for Peter. Well Peter on the other hand, despite his attitude really does love Sarah and places more importance on her life then his own. The mere fact that Sarah didn't kill Peter when she thought he cheated on him is pointed out as huge proof she loves him.
* BadassLongcoat: Hunter Fortitude Stebbins wears a duster with fleur-de-lis on the collar. Unfortunately, since he's only 5'2", he doesn't really carry it off.
* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: One running theory is Romulus and Remus of Roman history were either werewolves themselves or raised by a werewolf.
* BerserkButton:
** The French Teacher '''''''hates''''''' anything claiming to be French that doesn't come from the pure Parisian way. Whether it is cultural ideals, vocabulary, or pronunciations. If a student even uses the Quebecious pronunciation, or worse the Arcadian pronunciation, gets flunked out without appeal.
** Cherry Li hates being called a tanuki, and for people to assume because she is a were-racoon dog then she is Japanese.
** The woman at the college registrar hates any who try altering their schedules which have been put under the "fixed" category.
** Calling [[spoiler:Rebecca's clothes "costumes" gets her frustrated]].
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Ms. Debbie Wynn, the teaching assistant for the parapsychology course labs, reveals herself to be [[spoiler:from a family of Hunters. She showed some ability by casually throwing a silver-coated throwing dart through a 3x5 index card with the holder at an odd angle to her and unaware she was even going to throw it. Oh, and it was dead center in the card.]] The class listened to her after that.
* BigEater: The werewolves and probably other large weres as well. Page 215 shows Peter and Jean ordering eight giant burgers, extra ketchup, all the vegetables, and three "Texas"-size drinks. Then Jean notes since this is for Sarah, should they pick up food for themselves as well.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: All male zoothrope get some boost.
** The new CasanovaWannabe werelion is shocked and dismayed to find that Jean wasn't impressed with the size of his equipment (or she was lying) after she lifted him off the ground and sneaked a peek. And then stole his loincloth for good measure.
** Peter specifically, benefit from this. It's to the point when said werelion saw Peter nude in human form, he shut up at the sight of a penis larger than his.
* BiTheWay: Turns out [[spoiler:Jean is attracted to Sarah almost as much as she is Peter]] as seen in a FantasySequence on page 315 on the adult side.
* BoobsOfSteel: All the Zoothrope women (save the were-rat) gain enhanced secondary sex traits (larger breasts) while transformed, which corresponds with their enhanced physical powers quite nicely. Continuing to play the trope straight, Sarah is by far the most physically imposing Zoothrope woman ''and'' her petite form gains the most absurd GagBoobs in the series when she transforms, too.
* {{BrandX}}: A supporting character already wears [[MenBuyFromMarsWomenBuyFromVenus Frag body spray]]. Peter wears a shirt logo distinctly similar to [[Music/InsaneClownPosse ICP]]'s "Hatchet Man" when not wearing a shirt [[ProductPlacement White Lightning Productions already sells]].
* BullyingADragon: Jean's plan to help Peter and Sarah after [[spoiler:the near-rape and Sarah's misunderstanding the situation causing her to hate Peter]] is basically bullying to the point where pure, unbridled emotion emerges and Jean betting on the right one. Peter notes if this goes wrong, he will likely die.
* ButtMonkey: One of the guys in the van is named Baker and. in the adult pages 319-327, he [[spoiler:gets slammed into by Wolf-Sarah, becoming stuck in her breasts as she ran at high speeds bouncing him up and down]]. Then when that's over [[spoiler:a mildly tranquilized Wolf-Sarah ''sits'' on the guy's head, with his coworkers saying "Nice catching her."]] And then [[spoiler:still woozy from the sitting and bouncing, he puts in the final tranquilizer and Wolf-Sarah falls on him once more]]. Just before that last bit, he mutters, "Oh come on-"
* CallBack: When Peter and Jean first see Were-Sarah, there is a ShoutOut to Spielberg, with his name in the background. When the werelion sees Were-Sarah, he has the same reaction.
* CaneFu:
** Mrs. Forrest knows how to use her cane well.
** [[spoiler:To block Fortitude's sword, Peter improvises and grabs Mrs. Forrest's cane]].
* CannotTellALie: Wolf!Sarah is pure unintelligent instinct. It acts on what it feels and that is it. No self denial. No doubt and very little angst.
* CategoryTraitor: [[spoiler:Juniper Stebbins is a traitor to her family of hunters because she wants to idolize the werewolves and even become one. Her own father refuses to speak her name, only calling her ''the traitor.'' Her brother is cold and dismissive to her.]]
* CerebusSyndrome: Played Straight, though some would argue it zig-zags a bit, due to the comedy and other things.
* CharacterDevelopment:
** Mostly, Sarah as she learns little by little to control her were form to the point [[spoiler:she was able to stop her were-side from striking a normal human when the person was getting frisky with her.]] She was particularly happy when she went a whole three days without needing wolfsbane.
** Even Rebecca Cramer gains some of this [[spoiler:after not going through with the rape,]] though she's constantly taking a few steps back and a few steps forward.
* ChekhovsHobby: Early on it is shown [[spoiler:Sarah has a deep love of cosplaying and making her own costume, and Rebecca makes her own clothes too.]] Later, after [[spoiler:Rebecca's attempted rape of Peter]] the two run into each other and [[spoiler:get talking over sewing and Sarah complimenting on Rebecca's great skill]].
* CityOfWeirdos: Jean is caught out in public partially transformed. Passers-by just think she's a furry and ignore her.
* ClingyJealousGirl:
** Butch. Tragically, it's deeper than it looks.
** Wolf-Sarah has signs of this. She will not let any girl join in on her fun time with Peter.
* CodeOfHonour: Juniper Stebbins [[spoiler:claims there is one for all lycanthropes when she saves Peter's life from her brother and now he owes her a life-debt. Peter is unsure if this is true or not because of how much his parent's haven't told him]].
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When Sarah's father was grilling Peter, Sarah watched without any real reaction. However, the wolf-in-her was yelling that Daddy should leave because is time for sex with Peter.
--->'''Wolf-Sarah:''' Time for naughty fun with Peter!\\
'''Human-Sarah:''' Isn't that how we got into trouble in the first place?\\
'''Wolf-Sarah:''' It was fun!\\
'''Human-Sarah:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Not. The. Point!]]
* ConspiracyTheorist: Arthur Hazen, Sarah's father, believes there are multiple conspiracies about, namely involving some group that includes the Pack, not realizing they are werewolves, controlling much of the city. Considering the former Alpha is the Sheriff and has been for forty years, the current one runs the newspaper, and both use their positions to dillute information should something were-related come to light, he has a point. But even in other areas far from the werewolves if something even has the words "secret" and "government" related, he will preach about the wrongness and seek to prove how dangerous such secrets are. He regularly writes the paper with either new theories, inquiries, or complaints they haven't printed either of the former. See TooMuchInformation for one of the things he complained about and why it was kept secret.
* ConstantlyCurious: The Men in the Vans, with one disguised as an ice cream truck, deal with a pair of children who wanted some ice cream and asked questions like "Is that a satellite dish on your van?" Thankfully, the men were GenreSavvy enough to have the ice cream they advertise and give the children their orders to send them away.
* ContrivedClumsiness: Sally, Peter's mother, in response to her husband holding the IdiotBall below [[spoiler:accidentally spilled some scalding hot coffee on his groin.]]
* CoolOldLady: Mrs. Hewitt is a muggle and owner of a thrift clothes shop the weres frequent for cheap clothes. She is aware of the weres and even [[spoiler:helps Butch with her love of making her own clothes, encourages her designing, abilities and even thinks they are good enough to submit to professionals]].
* {{Cosplay}}: Sarah is an avid cosplayer. When she learned her werewolf sizes, she was initially dismayed because nothing she had could fit that. Then she remembered [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Naga the White Serpent.]] She even takes a moment to admire [[spoiler:Juniper Stebbins' clothes before the girl started coming onto Sarah]]. Later, at a fabric shop, she plans to make a costume for Jean, if she wants.
* CloudCuckoolander:
** Professor Feetlebaum. Even among those into researching "the Park Beast" (Sarah's wereform), he is considered a nut because he thinks her to be a Werewolf compared to others calling her a wendigo or Sasquatch or some part of the missing link.
*** TheCuckoolanderWasRight: While not all of his theories about zoothropes are right, he is correct that they are were-beasts and are around the world.
** [[spoiler:Juniper Stebbins thinks she can become a werewolf by first praying to Wolf!Sarah to bless her, then tried drinking any milk that was in her breasts, then licking her foot because drinking water from the footprint of a werewolf is meant to turn a person into one]].
* CurbStompBattle: Rebecca knows full well in a straight fight against Sarah, she would be dead. The fact Sarah is as strong as she is makes even ''Gus'' scared about having to take her down if she couldn't be controlled.
* CycleOfRevenge: Before Archibald Hunt got Hunters and Weres to agree to a code of conduct, the body count between the two sides were high. Hunters would work in groups to kill whole packs and, in turn, packs would slaughter the Hunters' families.
* DatingCatwoman: In the past, Archibald Hunt, who was one of the toughest Hunters back in the 1800s, fell in love with the daughter of the most respected Alpha in California. He eventually became her thrall and they were wed.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates:
** As Peter is a full runt of the pack, Gus Cramer really doesn't like the idea of his daughter becoming his mate.
** To say Sarah's father has a low opinion of Peter is being too kind. He sees Peter as an ignorant jock and has no idea what his daughter sees in him. And this was before they had sex, and Sarah and Peter were moved up to the mountains to live together, by the influences of the Pack, which makes him even more suspicious. But that's another trope.
* DaydreamSurprise: Adult pages 202-205 had [[spoiler:Peter screwing Jean as part of her "big plan" to get him and Sarah back together. It ended when real Peter told her to stop what she was doing and get on with the explanation]].
* DidntSeeThatComing:
** Sarah didn't foresee one night's fling would change her life forever.
** Peter, because of his parents not telling him, didn't guess Sarah would be turned into a thrall . . . or that she would be so big.
** When a thrall first transforms, the rush of emotions and senses can lead many to be violent and kill. [[spoiler:Sarah chases her tail ''for ten minutes'' and then goes after Peter and his ''stick''.]]
** After [[spoiler:seeing Butch smartly run away after kidnapping Peter]] Jean never anticipated [[spoiler:her mother taking Rebecca into their house under their protection and walking in on Rebecca in the bathroom.]]
** Sheriff Constantine Nero [[spoiler:didn't see coming the manager of the the burger joint Sarah's wereform visited being so defensive of Sarah. He even deleted security footage of "Parkie," as he calls her, because he saw her as something that should be left alone.]]
* DomesticAbuser: [[spoiler: Gus Cramer is one - both emotionally ''and'' ''sexually'' to Rebecca.]]
* DoubleStandard: Several. Early in the comic you see the local Werewolf convention -- all the men are wearing pants or loincloths. The women, with the sole exception of one of the main characters, are naked.
** Here's what happened: Early on they used to post a "dirty" and a "clean" page. The werewolf convention was originally only in the "clean" section and was latter added to the "dirty" one because people were annoyed at having to check both sections to see all the updates. This is why there are two pages showing at the same time and why they sometimes share scenes.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Averted. To Peter, Sarah, and Jean,[[spoiler:Butch's above-mentioned rape attempt on Peter]] is treated seriously as a legitimately horrible experience, [[spoiler:Peter's]] internal monologue specifically denounces the NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization, and [[spoiler: when Sarah finally realizes that Peter wasn't cheating on her but was in fact about to be raped,]] the look on [[spoiler:Sarah's]] face at how critically she misunderstood the situation is one of [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone utter horror]]. Among the more traditional minds of the pack, the opinion is that [[spoiler:Butch]] did only a minor wrong. Since MightMakesRight, a werewolf has the right to claim a weaker werewolf if the stronger wanted. The only crime, in their eyes, is trying to claim a werewolf who already has a mate. As this applies to either gender, however, this still averts the double standard.
* DramaticIrony: Professor Feetlebaum is considered a crazy man, but he professes to his students in Parapsychology Introductions werewolves and other monsters exist. [[spoiler:If he only knew nearly ''every student'' there is ''a zoothrope!'']]
* {{Earworm}}: When on the phone with someone, Gus listens to Abba's "Dancing Queen" as the hold music and it gets in his head.
* EasilyForgiven: Played with. [[spoiler:After Rebecca tried raping Peter and the whole disaster that came after]] Jean certainly has heavy issue with her but [[spoiler:Peter is only uneasy around her (as she did just save him from a Hunter) and Sarah has an awkward moment before both women realize they share a common love of sewing]].
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Helgi "Hal" [[MeaningfulName Halbjornsen]], the werebear.
* ExactWords: As werebears are not social creatures, when the Howl comes up, Hal is required to come. So he came, said hi to the teacher and Jack and left to sit alone in the woods planning on reading for the night.
* ExplicitContent: The story can be read in the SFW area without any of the sex scenes and still be a good story, but there are a few actual moments in the NSFW parts that does help along the plot, or is interesting to see, [[spoiler:such as Peter's horrified inner monologue when Butch is preparing to rape him, that basicly shows exactly why the DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale is a whole load of bullshit]].
* FacePalm: Peter does this in 326 when [[spoiler:Juniper Stebbins claims there is a Holy CodeOfHonour that says he owes her a life-debt for saving his life and doesn't know if it is true or not because his parents didn't tell him other key facts recently]]. He does it again in 327 when [[spoiler:the cabbie was not fazed by Juniper wanting sex or Peter's form, and then asks him to introduce him to Parkie if Peter knows her]].
* FantasySequence: On the adult version, pages 309-315 have [[spoiler:Jean imagining herself in a bikini when Peter shows up, they start making love and then wolf-Sarah joins in]].
* FreakyIsCool:
** When Sarah [[spoiler:ends up in a burger joint in full wolf-form, the patrons are at first shocked by The Park Monster but when they realize she's just hungry and isn't that dangerous, they give her food and get photos taken with her. The Manager even yells at Sheriff Nero for trying to capture her when he comes by later.]]
** Juniper Stebbins [[spoiler:daughter of a werewolf hunter not only loves the idea of werewolves, she wants to become one]].
* FreudianExcuse: Rebecca "Butch" Cramer, who acts like a {{Social Darwinist}}ic {{Jerkass}} [[spoiler: near-rapist]]... just like her father. [[spoiler: (Except replace "near-rapist" with just "rapist.")]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In a rather quickly forgotten panel, Carla confronts Gus publicly about [[spoiler: his sexual molestation and rape of Butch]] on page 26, causing him to back down. It completely paints the rest of the comic in a different light.
* GagBoobs:
** Sarah, when transformed. All a part of the proto-sentient, 11' tall werewolf bimbo package.
** On page 120, when she was transforming, she exclaims "Stupid boobies!"
* GagPenis: Peter, who takes after his big bad dad in ''only'' that way.
** To be specific, a recent comic has him being straddled by a werewolf girl who is around 6 - 7 feet tall. His erect penis reaches [[strike:her chest]] '''his chin.'''
** But it actually makes a twisted kind of sense if you think that he was supposed to be as big as Sarah. If not for a random gene kicking in and turning him into runt anyways. Also, he is of a MUCH more normal size in his human form.
* GeniusBruiser: Hal Halbjornsen, a werebear. He is over 6' in human form and well over 12 feet from his butt to head. But despite his size, he is quite reserved and enjoys reading Locke, Rousseau, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein in his spare time.
* GoldenSnitch: In Professor Feetlebaum's Parapsychology course, there is a large number of criteria to get an A. Or a student can get him conclusive evidence the creatures he claims exist do in fact exist. See DramaticIrony for the joke. [[spoiler:When Sarah was in her werewolf form chowing down at the burger joint, Peter took a photo of her with Sarah's phone and handed it in under her name, so she could get an A in the course and not have to worry about it.]]
* GoLookAtTheDistraction: This is how the Men in Vans deal with ConstantlyCurious children asking them about their strange ice cream vans. They give them ice cream and even call it "delicious, distracting, ice cream!"
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Butch has two little werewolves on her shoulder after [[spoiler:her attempt to get Sarah outed near a werewolf hunter ended up outing Peter instead and he had to run off. Butch saved him from the situation she caused but left without a word. Her "good" side urged her to apologize. Her "bad" side told her to go back and screw Peter.]] Butch tells both to shut up and continues on.
* GoodBadGirl: Jean, although wolves in the Peterverse are of the "open about sexuality" variety. For example, Jean's mother idly teases Jean's father ''in front of Jean'' saying that she idly wished she had taken Peter as a mate once she had found out her daughter had slept with him (and that his nickname of "two bats" [[BiggerIsBetterInBed isn't a pun]]) -- and warns Jean that she should probably not let Sarah know that Jean and Peter had sex in the past.
* GoodOlBoy: What Gus comes across as. [[spoiler: In reality, not so much.]]
* GroinAttack: Seen as early as page 6. To quote Peter, while werewolves have an incredible HealingFactor, "Taking a shot to the wolf nards... still hurts..."
* HealingFactor: Werewolves, and probably other weres, can heal from pretty much any injury in minutes once they transform into their were-form. They really are unconcerned with any injury that doesn't come from fire, silver, or the fangs and claws of another were. [[spoiler:Sarah shocks Nero by receiving two normal bullets from his police weapon in the chest and in ''seconds'' heals. One more thing to worry about her.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords: Fortitude Stebbins sees himself as the Hero out to vanquish rampaging werewolves. Among other weapons, he does have a sword.
* HeroicBuild: All males (except Peter) gain huge amounts of muscle when they transform...and are also endowed down there (Peter was already this).
* HowDoIShotWeb: Controlling transformations and animal instincts is a learned skill. Much of Sarah's arc is learning said control.
* HulkOut: Sarah's transformations. Hal the werebear too.
* TheHunter:
** The Stebbins family is one of werewolf hunters. [[spoiler:The daughter Juniper has gone against the trend to not only believe there is good in werwolves but wants to become one as well.]]
** From the past, there is Archibald Hunt. He was the greatest hunter of his time. He eventually settled down as Sheriff in a town and fell for the school teacher [[DatingCatwoman who was the daughter of one of the top Alphas]] in the United States.
** Further in the past was where Rebecca Cramer's mother, Nancy Vulthar, came from. She came from a pack in eastern Europe which converted to Christianity and helped track down witches with church officials.
* IdiotBall:
** Peter's parents, who never told Peter sex with a non-were will make them a were.
** Peter's father Walt, for saying [[spoiler:unlike Peter who resisted Rebecca's attempt to rape him, would have gladly taken her]] in front of his wife. See ContrivedClumsiness above for her response.
* ImagineSpot: Gus Cramer has one on page 202 where [[spoiler:he convinces Sarah to be with him and they plot to take over the pack.]]
* InnocentFanserviceGirl:
** Sarah, when in werewolf form. Doesn't help that she's so big, any clothing she was wearing at the time is destroyed.
** Butch is a particularly effective aversion or {{Deconstruction}}: Her father insists (through violence) that Butch act like this in their home, since it's a "traditional werewolf" lifestyle. That was disturbing but almost ok -- after all, most of the weres shown are effectively nudists, after all. It's later shown that he's doing it to make it easier for him to possess her completely. [[spoiler: And we mean, ''completely.'']]
** Peter's friend Jean is similar, having little qualms about walking around wearing a fishnet top and nothing else. Having a built in modesty-covering fur coat helps with things.
** ''All'' of the werewolf women have elements of this -- we see a local pack gathering ("the Howl") at the start of the comic. All the men are shirtless but wearing loincloths and pants. All the girls except Butch (who has her own reasons for not doing so) are nude.
* InteractiveNarrator: Only once have the creators broken the fourth wall to address the fact [[spoiler:Rebecca's loathing of all things costume and cosplay]] is not their view. They [[spoiler:like detailed costumes, and in the case of women, wearing less costumes]] are really appreciated. Both Rebecca and Carla notice their pushing the "page" back to speak but then quickly not mention it again.
* InterspeciesRomance:
** Technically, Sarah and Peter, and, in the past, Archibald Hunt and the school teacher, were this before the human became a thrall.
** The werelion's interest in Sarah, a werewolf, is considered as such. While today, there is not that big an issue in open minded circles, some still disapprove of it.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting - Though training, herbal therapy, and time can provide a measure of control over their personal lycanthropy, it's still virtually impossible to remain human during the full moon.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Jean's complaint to Sarah [[spoiler:after she actually believed Peter was into some kinky sex with Rebecca, instead of coming inches from being raped. Not only did Sarah not think about Peter's well-being here, she hadn't considered to think of Peter's life at all since she became a werewolf. Yes, Sarah's life the past few months was a pain in the tail but Peter, being a runt werewolf, has had it far worse for most of his life, from his abusive parents to Rebecca Cramer chasing after him like he was her personal toy]]. Thankfully, Sarah listens to this complaint and starts to develop into a better person. Upon learning what Peter is also keeping from her (see YouAreWorthHell) for her own safety, their relationship gets a lot better.
* {{Jerkass}}: More than a few of the cast. In fact it seems like pretty much everyone but Peter and Jack is a Jerkass to some extent.
* JerkassHasAPoint: When dealing with a ranting Rebecca, Sarah cannot help but agree [[spoiler:her harsh critiques on Sarah's coat and cosplay plans are spot on and she would do well to listen to them]].
* KillItWithFire: Peter notes one way to kill a were is with fire.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Rebecca [[spoiler:pushed Sarah to her breaking point in the clothes store with her criticisms]]. Sarah [[spoiler:snapped after one final straw, wolfed out, ran, and inadvertently trampled Rebecca]]. This is lampshaded by Carla.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Sarah, the Light, is a kind, sweet, girl who came from a good home. Rebecca is a cynical BrokenBird who is more than willing to use violence or threat of force to get what she wants.
* LightIsGood: When Carla Goodwin, Jean's mom, comes to Rebecca after [[spoiler:Rebecca tried to rape Peter and nearly got him killed Carla told Butch she has a choice of staying with her father, after revealing Carla knows Gus has raped Butch, or coming with Carla into protective custody.]] As seen on page 186, cue a rainbow and tiny bird behind Carla. Butch lampshades this with [[LampshadeHanging "Yer shittin' me."]]
* LovableJock: Peter. Even as a freshman in high school, he was shown to have a very nice personality, with protecting Sarah from some {{Alpha Bitch}}es. He saw Sarah for herself and not the general nerd stereotype. He maintains this attitude, even when dealing with a big ego guy like Noah the werelion. He treats the guy trying to steal his girlfriend and considers him a teeny weenie with an emotional coolness and lets the facts stand by revealing he [[GagPenis isn't.]]
* MagicPants: Mostly averted.
** Peter doesn't lose his clothes because, as a runt werewolf, he's about the same size in both forms. Other characters wear clothes specifically designed to fit or stretch for both forms. Sarah, on the other hand, destroys her clothes repeatedly and utterly, and other characters damage or destroy clothing in transformation.
** Ditto Jean, who isn't exactly huge in were form -- it's shown her fishnet shirts and cut up blue jeans are that way cause they offer some wiggle room when she expands.
** Jean's mother wears clothes loose enough to allow her to transform without ripping. She only gains about a half a foot of space between the top of her pants and bottom of the shirt.
* MaamShock: In episode 321, after [[spoiler:Fortitude's stab missed Peter and stabbed her new clothes]] calling Jean ''Ma'am'' just pissed her off even more.
* [[MamaBear Mama Wolf]]: Carla Goodwin is this, even to those who aren't her blood. And so are the rest of the females of the pack. [[spoiler:After telling Rebecca Cramer she can move in under the terms of protective custody, Rebecca is worried her father would just drag her back. Carla, wolfing out, says Gus will take her back over the dead bodies of every female in the pack, including Carla's.]]
* MarshmallowHell:
** Peter enjoys this with Sarah in her were-form.
** Cherry Li deals with a double MarshmallowHell when she gets in between Sarah and a werefox on page 152.
** [[spoiler:Baker, from Aminal Control, gets caught in Sarah's breasts and taken for a run]].
* {{Masquerade}}: Zoanthropes in general. Fortunately, common wisdom holds that anyone who believes in werewolves is insane.
** BrokenMasquerade: Sarah finds out that there are such things as werewolves. And she had slept with one.
** KilledToUpHoldTheMasquerade: The danger of thralls is they are uncontrollable, untrained, but powerful weres. If the were who made one cannot teach the thrall to control itself, ''both will be killed''.
* MagicVersusScience: Dr. Abe believes in magic and Carla Goodwin believe in science. Neither has a complete explanation for why and how zoothropes do what they do. As Dr. Abe points out, when Peter changes, even with someone as small as him, there is evidence about this. Where did he get the additional mass? Where did the fur come from and where did it go? It appears to just "ungrow" when he shifts back. Because of this he calls it magic. Carla simply says that science can explain everything, it, however, cannot explain everything ''yet.''
* MateOrDie: Peter has to keep Sarah under control as he's responsible for her -- and being outed as a werewolf is punishable by death. Werewolf Sarah is basically only controllable by Peter snogging her silly. (Wolfsbane also helps, but she's highly resistant.) Ergo -- Peter has to calm Sarah down or die once Werewolf Sarah is caught. This decreased over time as Sarah's control increased over time.
* MeaningfulName: ''Constantine Nero.'' Named after two emperors of Rome. The former was famous for being the first Emperor of Rome to convert to Christianity. He subverts the second by being a well-reasoned and understanding man, unlike Nero who was deranged and killed plenty of people.
** Actually, Nero, a wereWolf, is a reference to the Nero Wolfe mysteries. As are the name Goodwin, Stebbins, and several others.
* TheMenInBlack: Seen since chapter 1. Mysterious vans popping up and coming after usually Peter when he ends up in wereform.
* MercyKill: It is the opinion of Hunter Fortitude Stebbins werewolves are lost souls infected by an ancient demonic force. To kill them is a mercy by ending their suffering.
* MightMakesRight: An old werewolf ideal. The strong dominate the weak and can take whatever they want from the weaker pack members.
** Rebecca uses it to plan on claiming Peter as her mate.
** Her father Gus, who taught Rebecca this, [[spoiler:uses it to make his own daughter his live-in slave, doing the cleaning and cooking and ''three times he made her his sexual partner.'']]
* TheMole: [[spoiler:Gus Cramer has been working with the above mentioned Men in Black. He was the one to generally send the teams after Peter at the start of the series.]]
* MomentKiller: On their first night together after Sarah's transformation, ending with what would likely be sex in their werewolf forms, goes to arctic chill the moment Sarah's parents show up. [[spoiler:After they left, Sarah did transform but upon realizing all that she had to give up, including her living with her loving parents, she orders her wolfself to attack Peter. Wolf!Sarah obeys]].
* {{Muggles}}: Only a handful of people know about the existence of werewolves and other zoothropes. They will identify themselves with a seemingly normal, but out of place in most contexts, phrase and can wait for a countersign.
* MyBelovedSmother: Peter's father has so many issues due to his grandmother, who raised him, being a very overbearing, alpha personality who crushed his hopes and dreams of going to college and playing football out of some sort of misguided desire [[strike: to protect the pack]] to control him like she couldn't control his father. Amusingly, he married a woman who is ''the exact same way'', complete with SmugSnake grin and horrible justifications as she torments her own kid.
* {{Narrator}}: Peter and Sarah narrate the openings to each part giving the readers a brief summary the story.
* NightmareFace: On page 112, the woman at the registrar's office gets one when Peter and Sarah complain about their schedules despite being fixed.
* NippleAndDimed: Often the only difference, if any, between an adult-version and clean-version page is the miraculous vanishing or concealment of nipples (among other things). If a page is just too pornographic to be saved by editing it will simply be removed. This, naturally, causes the reader to miss out on (usually small) parts of the plot.
* TheNoseKnows:
** Jean once uses her nose to track Peter and Sarah over a long distance.
** When Carla comes to Rebecca to confront her after the recent events, she points out that [[spoiler:she's smelled Gus "on her" ''three'' times]], but has no physical evidence.
* NoSell:
** A verbal version. When [[spoiler:Rebecca Cramer]] starts yelling at Sarah's love of cosplay and its stupidity, along with insults against Sarah herself, Sarah remains calm, even when the wolf in her wants to run. This isn't the first time she has dealt with cosplay-haters and insults, and so is well prepared to remain calm.
** [[spoiler:The guys in Aminal Control use a lot of zip ties on Wolf-Sarah to try and bind her. When she comes to her senses, she breaks them easily]].
* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: Adult page 177 has [[spoiler:Peter refuting this claim while Rebecca is starting to rape him, first going with kissing and licking his penis. Peter mentally screams that his body is lying because he doesn't want this. He doesn't want Rebecca]].
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Sarah bursts in on [[spoiler:Butch's aborted attempt to rape Peter,]] and not knowing what happened to him, promptly breaks up with him.
* ObstructiveCodeOfConduct: The treaty drawn up at the American Hunt Convention. It was set up by the best hunter-turned-werewolf Archibald Hunt between the weres and hunters to cut down on the bloodshed on both sides. He employed smart business tactics to make both sides agree[[note]]He blackmailed the hunters since he knew where each hunter lived[[/note]]. In this convention, rules were set up to be obstructive on both sides.
** Rule 1: The hunt must be open. No [[CombatPragmatist sniping, ambushes, or traps.]] Both sides must have a chance to fight back. However, running away is a viable option. Hunters must wear a [[HighlyConspicuousUniform stereotypical hunter overcoat and weapons]]. If asked about this [[CannotTellALie the Hunter must be honest and say the truth.]]
** Rule 2: [[LetsFightLikeGentlemen Combat must be one-on-one. No side may send support to the other.]][[note]]Rebecca potentially violated this rule by pulling Peter up onto the roof to escape Fortitude Stebbins.[[/note]] However, if in his duty as Sheriff, Nero sees the fight between a hunter and were, Nero can arrest a hunter but that's it. No harassing.
** Rule 3: [[RuleOfThree Hunters only get three times to kill a target]]. If they fail, they must leave the town.
** Rule 4: [[NeverHurtAnInnocent Werewolves are forbidden from striking the family or friends of a hunter in retaliation.]] In exchange, [[SecretKeeper Hunters cannot reveal the civilian identity of their kill]] to keep the friends and family members safe.
* OhCrap:
** Jean in the beginning when Peter says he slept with Sarah.
** Peter has a minor one when he listens to the French teacher's rant and realizes he is wearing a [[CanadaEh Toronto Maple Leaf's]] shirt.
** Gus Cramer has one when [[spoiler:the Men in Black he reports to call him not by his name, but the designation number for him and his kind of werewolf]].
** Rebecca does this when [[spoiler:her "brilliant plan" to make a hunter kill Sarah backfires and it is Peter who is targeted]].
** Carla Goodwin [[spoiler:has a controlled freak-out when Sarah and Rebecca run into each other at a cloth store after Rebecca's attempt to rape Peter. It turns out, Sarah has no qualms and even compliments Rebecca on her sewing skills]].
** When [[spoiler:Mrs. Forrest beats Wolf!Peter out of her store, he bumps into Fortitude. Both turn to apologize and realize who the other is]]. Cue an "Oh Crap" face from Peter.
** In Adult 318 Jean has one when she [[spoiler:realized she was fantasizing about Sarah, went in her pants and clothes she hadn't bought yet, then one of the sales people caught her before she could escape]].
* OneOfUs: Both [=BAR-1=] and Overstreet are devoted tropers, and make frequent mentions of various tropes on their discussion boards.
* OnlySaneMan: The role of Pack Alpha is delegated to these rare individuals within werewolf society, as evidenced by Jack and his predecessor Sheriff Nero.
* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: On page 264, when [[spoiler:one of the burger joint workers pressed her head up under werewolf-Sarah's breasts]] she makes the comment about looking like "Mickey Mouse ears". The text bubble now is blotted over with a small disclaimer.[[note]]They even use the classic Disney "D" in the word "due"[[/note]]
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: Features all kinds of werebeasts, although the predominant one remains werewolves. Whatever their animal type, their bite is not always infectious: it is a trait inherited genetically by the enzymes in the werewolf. So, claws, bites, and bodily fluids are all potential ways for thralls to emerge. Peter was never told about the later.
** OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: [[http://www.projectwonderful.com/img/uploads/pics/35620-1245895517.jpg An ad for the comic]] actually uses the exact phrase. Not surprising, given the OneOfUs status of the writers.
* OverlyLongGag: No, not [[GagPenis Peter's unit]] - but page 192 has one asking, "Who is Pack Alpha?"
* ParentalNeglect: Peter's parents, full stop. After Peter is [[spoiler: ''nearly raped'', dumped by his girlfriend and in very real danger of being ''killed'' for it, when he is forced to stay with them for a few days, so they put him in the literal doghouse they have out back.]]
* PersonAsVerb: After [[spoiler:Gus tried to take back his daughter and Carla scared him off]] Carla still had a build up of emotions and needed to ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitch_Rapp Mitch Rapp]]'' on someone.
* PowerOfLove: Jean realizes that Sarah does deeply love Peter as [[spoiler:she didn't kill him after thinking he cheated on her, like an uncontrollable thrall should have.]]
* PowerPerversionPotential: Werewolves are great at giving head.
* PurelyAestheticGlasses: Sarah has confessed to using them in high school. ''Without the lenses.''
* TheQuietOne: Werebears are generally quiet, reserved beings. They enjoy reading and solitude excluding family.
* TheQuisling: [[spoiler:Gus, Rebecca's father,]] very well might be working with "Aminal Control", whoever they are.
* RageBreakingPoint: After Sarah endured [[spoiler:Rebecca's tirade about costumes and cosplay]] without wolfing out, it was the fact [[spoiler:someone took the fabric she wanted while arguing with Rebecca ''to fix their drapes'']] that caused the proverbial straw to break someone's back. Cue wolfing out, and running off.
* RapeAsDrama: [[spoiler:Gus, Rebecca's father,]] has been raping her for years. This is on top of the things we already knew about their relationship.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure:
** Constantine Nero, the retired Alpha and current Sheriff, is a good natured man. He willing stepped aside from his position and allowed an ''election'' to decide the next Alpha, over the old way of giving it to the one who kills him.
** Jack Goodwin, the current Alpha, is also very reasonable about the new thrall Sarah and good about giving Peter leeway when things aren't going in his favor to train Sarah.
* RefugeInAudacity: One of Jean's plots to help Sarah and Peter is [[spoiler:to sleep with Peter in front of Sarah. Since Sarah broke up with him, he became a free agent. And since Sarah and Peter won't be using their bed, it might as well get some use. This infuriates Sarah to the point her wolf-side finally says some words. Those words were "Mine" which signify her true mindset since the wolf is pure instinct and emotions. It cannot lie. So despite claiming to hate him, Sarah is shown she genuinely still loved Peter.]] If this had failed, Peter would have likely died.
* RetiredBadass: Constantine Nero, former Alpha, is the only one who feels comfortable about being around Gus alone because he knows even with his age, he can still take down Gus.
* [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy Ridiculously Average Girl]]: When they first met, Sarah was this to Peter. She was a nice, kind, young lady who didn't see him as another stupid jock, runt of the pack, or friend with benefit. He enjoyed the normal atmosphere about her.
* RightBehindMe:
** Starting at comic 115, at a cafe, Jean is badmouthing one of Sarah's, Peter's, and her's teachers calling him an easy A and the only reason he is teaching still is because of the current bureaucratic mess colleges are. She never realizes the man behind her at another table is this man, as he breaks down crying.
** As Sarah is eating at a restaurant on comic 266 [[spoiler:where she devoured lots of burgers in her wereform, she is defended by the manager who deleted security footage of her to protect "Parkie" from Sheriff Nero and others.]]
* RomancingTheWidow: Discussed. [[spoiler:By the rules of the Hunt, Fortitude Stebbins can only go after Peter. Since Noah doesn't think he has a chance, he fully implies to do this with Sarah. He openly asks her, with Peter right next to him, since she will soon be single, does she want to party on Halloween]].
* ScheduleSlip: Although new pages are supposed to come out once a week, it's not surprising for them to miss a week. Or two. (Readers of the strip have accepted that both Kris and BAR-1 have a lot on their plate and, since the strip generates little to no revenue, bitching for updates is not going to solve anything.)
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Normally, stealing another werewolf's mate is something which makes fangs bite and claws slash. However, the Alphas of the pack, meaning the the male Alpha and his immediate family, do have the right to take anyone they wish. Got to love tradition.
* SecretChaser: Sarah's dad is ludicrously nosy under normal circumstances, throw in his daughter unexpectedly moving into a cabin in the middle of nowhere with her boyfriend and he's even worse. Also the paranormal studies professor who thinks Sarah is Bigfoot.
* SecretKeeper:
** Peter kept his secret from Sarah him being a werewolf. He ''also'' kept Sarah a secret from the Pack.
** Peter kept secret [[spoiler:from Sarah the fact not only would she die if couldn't control her werewolf, Peter would share the fate with her. When Sarah finds out, he points out she had enough on her head to have to worry about this fact]].
* SexualKarma: Played with. Sarah slept with Peter as a final fling before college with the intent of dumping him afterwards... only to be infected with lycanthropy by it, have to give up on her dreams of going to a big school, and has to live with the boyfriend that she was ready to end it with.
* ShapeshifterBaggage: Most Weres, but Sarah in particular packs on a ridiculous amount of mass when she transforms.
* ShoutOut:
** On page 241 of the adult section, the southern werevixen is called [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Apple Jack]].
** Butch on page 134 might potentially be a reference to RosarioToVampire's Mizore Shirayuki, who has a tendency for stalking the object of her affection, wearing clothes similar to the outfit Butch has on, continuously has a lolipop in her mouth, and has also told people to find their own hiding places because "this one's taken".
** The burger joint Peter and Jean visit has the drive-thru guy saying [[HomestarRunner Sever your limb, sir, it's the greatest day?]]
** When Jean has her EurekaMoment and realizes that [[spoiler: Sarah still loves Peter even after their breakup]], she starts doing a dance that's clearly the Caramell Dansen.
** Page 168 where Sarah starts chasing after the cat references one of the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyToons Road Runner]] cartoons [Ordinary (?) Human: Homo Sapiens Sapiens, etc.] and Series/{{House}}. When she catches it on page 174, the third panel references the "save or harvest" choice from ''VideoGame/BioShock1''.
** On page 169 there is an the A-Team reference.
** Page 188 compares Peter to another well-known character who's been relegated to the doghouse.
** The very next page has Peter's father wearing a [[VideoGame/Left4Dead2 Midnight Riders]] t-shirt.
** And now a [[Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera Zydrate Support Group]] shirt.
** In strip 303, in the Parapsychology course's night class, the wererat Daniel is putting the werelion Noah through an experiment [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} "on the negative reinforcement on psychic ability."]] Based on the complaint from Noah, he was going fairly poorly, just like the boy this came from.
** In strip 305, Sarah screams "I knew it!" [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney as though she was objecting about something.]]
** On the Adult page 26, Thrall-Sarah's interest in Peter's penis makes him comment "That's not Beef! It's not for dinner!"
** In strip 308, Sarah equates the permitted killing in the Hunt Convention to [[Recap/StarTrekS1E23ATasteOfArmageddon Star Trek Original Series episode "A Taste of Armageddon"]].
** In strip 225, captions pointing to the increasingly irritated Sarah read [[Discworld/{{Wintersmith}} "Och! 'Tis the pursin' o' the lips!" "Aye, an she ken the foldin' o' the arms!"]]
** On page 8 of Debbie Wynn's Notebook, the wererat heraldry is the insignia of the Skaven from ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay''. There is also a picture of a nutcracker shaped like a 19th century soldier, with a note that wererats have [[Theatre/TheNutcracker a "curious aversion" to them]].
** In strip 321 [[spoiler:Jean]] calls Fortitude "Dumbass [[Franchise/{{Highlander}} MacLeod]]" for his swinging his sword around randomly.
** When Fortitude [[spoiler: is fighting against Peter's defensive CaneFu,]] ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' gets a shout out as "Bonetti," "Capo Ferro," and Thibalt" show up during the swings.
* SilverBullet: Silver is one thing weres can be killed with. [[spoiler:Given Sarah healing from two normal bullet wounds to the chest ''in seconds'' makes Sheriff Nero fear that even Silver may not be enough to take her down.]]
** {{Deconstructed}}. [[http://www.peteristhewolf.com/adult/333.html Silver bullets]] are AwesomeYetImpractical.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Noah Dunbar, the werelion, thinks he is a "big deal". He is flabbergasted at how any girl, especially a might beast like Sarah's wereform, could resist his "charms". He thinks himself to be more "charming" than any guy at first glance, save Hal, and cannot fathom why Sarah liked Peter over him.
* SocialDarwinist: Butch and her father. Tragically, it leads to Butch trying to express feelings of affection through this -- she's stronger than the boy she likes, so why can't she just take him? [[spoiler:Taken to it's horrifying extreme in one arc of the comics -- she kidnaps Peter, ties him up, and tries to rape him. However, she can't go through with it]].
* StatuesqueStunner: Juniper Stebbins stands at 6'4" and is a normal human.
* StunGuns: Another tactic used by Aminal Control. [[spoiler:They barely stun Wolf!Sarah and barely takes her out of the fight for long]].
* SuperEmpowering: When a werewolf turns a muggle into a Thrall, this is what has happened. The person gains superior strength, senses, healing abilities, but at the cost of the wolf-mind living forever within them and having no way to control it for a good time after the transformation.
* SuperSenses: Part of the werewolf package. Unfortunately, smelling [[spoiler: the results of child molestation]] doesn't count as evidence.
* SuperStrength:
** To varying degrees, but each zoothrope does have strength greater than the normal human. Peter, being a runt, has this in the minimal side to the point he barely qualifies.
** When doing weights for a gym class, Sarah noticed her human form is stronger as before she pretty much sucked at all things gym.
* TemptingFate: [[spoiler:The Pack is confident that ''nothing bad'' can happen from leaving Gus Cramer alone on desk duty at the Sheriff's Department. Cut to Gus showing himself to be TheQuisling.]]
* ThatsAnOrder: Occasionally Jack will give direct orders as the Pack Alpha. One included [[spoiler:Jean working on befriending Sarah, to help her with things Peter cannot.]]
* ThreeWaySex: [[spoiler:On page 334, Jean confesses to Sarah about her fantasy three-way and now she wants to do it for real]].
* ThrowItIn: The artist has a habit of "ad-libbing" character dialogue when finishing pages.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl:
** Peter and Sarah in wereforms. Peter is near 6' tall. Sarah in wereform is a lot taller than him.
** A brother-sister pair. The twenty year old Fortitude Lee Stebbins is about 4'10" (or so he claims) and his elder sister by two years is 6'4" and that isn't including her large pig-tails which knock her up to 6'8".
* TooMuchInformation:
** Sally's reaction to [[spoiler:hearing her son climax and Sarah's exclamation at just ''how big'' Peter is.]]
** Sarah, Peter, and Jean learn that the reason behind a closed door session of the city council was [[spoiler:talking about medical coverage for a city parks groundskeeper who has gonorrhea ''in the throat''. He also got it from the ''Mayor's wife''.]]
--->'''Jean:''' Can I retract the question?\\
'''Sarah:''' Ew! Ew! Ew! [=TMI=]! [=TMI=]!\\
'''Peter:''' Blarg!\\
'''Sheriff Nero:''' Welcome to city politics.
* TransformationComic: Nearly every character is a were.
* TranquillizerDart: Used by the guys of Aminal Control because they want to catch a werewolf alive. [[spoiler:Even the super trans only take out Wolf!Sarah for a few minutes before she comes to her senses.
* TheTrickster:
** Jean and her mother Carla both enjoy the occasional trick.
** Dr. Abe the kitsune (werefox) is very much in the habit of playing tricks.
* {{Troll}}: The Anatomy and French teachers' assignments as seen on page 209. Their homework assignments are truly hellish.
* {{Tsundere}}/{{Yandere}}: Butch. Yep, she's both a MAJOR Type A Tsundere (thanks to her home life) and a Type B Yandere.
* UnfazedEveryman: When Peter, in werewolf form, [[spoiler:is being propositioned by Juniper to turn her into a werewolf]] in the back of a cab, the cabbie isn't bothered the least. What is spoiled isn't even the strangest thing he's seen in the back of his cab. [[spoiler:He also asks if Peter knows Parkie]].
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend:
** Butch again. She was always abusive towards Peter because LoveMakesYouEvil [[spoiler:(and due to a general crappy home life) but actually likes him, when Sarah came into the picture and dashed her longstanding dream of Peter taking her away from her psychotic father,]] she started slipping into outright {{Yandere}} mode.
** Averted with Jean, who just doesn't care.
* UnskilledButStrong: Sarah in her werewolf form. Both Gus and Constantine note how powerful she is and dangerous she could be if she cannot control her wolf.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: The werewolf-enthusiast Juniper Stebbins who appeared [[spoiler:after Sarah's big reveal at a restaurant with photos being taken of her]] puts a card of a local college professor between her breasts.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Jack is told an urban legend of a pack somewhere back east which had a thrall problem and tried to kill it. The thrall killed half the pack before they could finally take it down, and then had to stage a factory blowing up to explain the bodies. All to protect the secret.
* WhatTheHellHero:
** A minor example: Jean's father to Peter's mother, after they [[spoiler:smugly announce they've already redecorated his room as a nursery for his replacement and he's going to have to literally live in a dog house outside, despite there being a perfectly good garage, and presumably a perfectly good couch nearby. Given the [[SmugSnake look]] his mother had explaining this in the previous page, as well as his father accidentally letting it slip that their (vastly improved) sex life being a factor as well, it's nice to see ''someone'' call her out on it.]]
** Another minor one when Jean calls Sarah out and tells her that while her life has been hell the past few months, [[spoiler:Peter has had it bad for years since he was a kid. And when he has finally found someone who respects him (Sarah), he is kidnapped and almost raped. And after Sarah saves him, she thinks he was cheating on her and just leaves him in his own depression, back to two parents who have been putting him down for years.]]
** When Sarah learns about the Hunt accords and the rules between zoothropes and hunters, she decries it as institutionalized murder. However as Ashley the werefox notes Sarah never grew up with the were-condition, never had to fear the world turning against them simply because of what they were born as. These accords really help saves many lives.
** Early on, Peter is pissed at Dr. Abe for scaring wolf!Sarah with a giant needle, Sarah hates them, and causing her to run off. He takes responsibility for the matter.
* WhenEldersAttack: [[spoiler:Mrs. Forrest, thinking Peter is a punk in a costume, strikes him with her cane]].
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Although the creators have made a deliberate decision to not name or locate Peter's town, the artist draws certain landmarks which strongly suggest a Michigan locale...
* WolfMan: Once they gain control over their wolfsides, which for natural born wolves has been much of their lives, the human mind generally maintains a strong hold on the wolf mind so the wolf cannot do anything the human doesn't want. Much of Sarah's plot is working at becoming this.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Sarah's father thinks there is some conspiracy with the government that is hiding some big truth from the world. Well, he is right, but it isn't some dark scandal or break of Constitutional rights. It is just a few people using their power to keep the masquerade about werewolves from going public and making people run to get torches and pitchforks.
* YouAreWorthHell: When Sarah finds out [[spoiler:Peter kept secret from her not only the fact she would die if she couldn't control her werewolf-side, but Peter would die as well, she asks how he could keep the fact that if she messed up it was Peter's life on the line. Peter responds with a firm, "'''It doesn't matter what happens to me!'''"]]
* YourCostumeNeedsWork: When Peter, in wolf form, was [[spoiler:running from Fortitude Stebbins]] he ran into Mrs. Forrest's store. She saw him [[spoiler:and started whacking him with her cane saying how his Parkie costume is pathetic and how she won't give him any freebies]].
