You know who doesn’t go through a bunch of agonized self-reflection, ever? Wolves! Wolves feel really quite good about themselves and their totally rad ability to form an awesome, bad-ass pack and just straight up eat a whole moose.This index is for tropes having to do with wolves and wolf-like creatures such as werewolves. See also Werebeast Tropes. Despite their names, Wolfpack Boss, Throw 'Em to the Wolves and Papa Wolf have little do with wolves. Wolves are just one of the creatures that might foster a human child under the Raised by Wolves tropes. They're also sometimes used metaphorically for danger or evil, as in A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing or Flock of Wolves.
