->''"Even a man who is pure in heart\\
and says his prayers by night,\\
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms,\\
and the autumn moon is bright."''
-->-- ''Film/TheWolfMan1941''

Subtrope of OurWerewolvesAreDifferent, dealing with a BeastMan that has wolf features, but retaining human proportions. [[MonsterMash Together]] with Count {{Dracula}}, the {{Mummy}}, and FrankensteinsMonster, this is generally considered to complete the set of "classic" [[MonsterMash horror monsters]]. Unlike the other three, however, there is no single specific source of popular werewolf lore. The closest claim to such a source in literature might be GuyEndore's classic novel ''TheWerewolfOfParis'', but cinema seems to have been more definitive in terms of shaping the concept. Hence, Creator/LonChaneyJr's character (Lawrence Talbot) from the 1941 film ''[[Film/TheWolfMan1941 The Wolf Man]]'' is usually regarded as providing the template that others have followed.

However, far and away the most popular conceit is that a werewolf is a human who has somehow ([[BalefulPolymorph especially against his will]]) become able to temporarily transform ([[InvoluntaryShapeshifting usually unwillingly]]) into a wolf that goes on to run wild ([[AlternateIdentityAmnesia rarely remembering their romp]]). Usual methods include a ViralTransformation spread by being bitten, but a lot of depictions show lycanthropy as solely hereditary. Other popular causes include {{curse}}s and typical MadScientist experiments. Like most werewolves, the classic wolf-man only transforms on the full moon, or, failing that, at night, though none of this is a ''given'' in modern works.

On the other hand, some lycanthrope characters use the Wolfman as an intentional PartialTransformation (in which case he may not be referred' to as a werewolf, but only as a wolfman).

In older horror films (Franchise/{{Universal|Horror}} era up into TheSeventies), the transformation usually took the form of getting hair and fangs but otherwise remaining human. (The "classic" Wolf Man appearance is not entirely dissimilar to the symptoms of a rare genetic disorder, hypertrichosis.) With the advent of more sophisticated make-up and visual effects, techniques have been developed that allowed more wolflike features on humanoids, such as giving a character a wolf's muzzle and ears. {{Phlegmings}} are popular for modern versions.

Depending on the adaptation, he [[NonhumansLackAttributes may or may not have]] [[Film/TheMonsterSquad nards]]. Also generally equipped with fearsome claws, despite real wolves having blunt toenails instead. Usually switches between running on two legs and RunningOnAllFours.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Sajin Komamura is a large anthropomorphic wolf (not a fox!) and is very self-conscious about his appearance and he used to hide his head with different headgears for a long time until near the climax of the Soul Society arc. Nobody of the Shinigami actually mind what he looks like, though.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'': The franchise features many anthropomorphic animal monsters, including wolfs.
** [=WereGarurumon=] are bipedal Garurumon, which causes them to lose speed and many are depicted to shrink in size after evolution, but they are stronger than their pre-evolutions. [=WereGarurumon=] wear jeans, accessories, a belt around their chest, etc.
** [=AncientGarurumon=] appears to be a giant, bipedal version of Garmmon/[[DubNameChange KendoGarurumon]], which also means, it's a humanoid robot wolf with two {{BFS}}.
** Beowolfmon is the combined form of Wolfmon/[[DubNameChange Lobomon]] and Garmmon. While the body is dominantly Garmmon's, its humanoid shape comes from Wolfmon (who is not a wolf-man, but sort of a heavily-armored jedi with a wolf helmet) and it has Wolfmon's head on its body. Its right arm is very human-like, but its left arm is just Garmmon's leg. Like [=AncientGarurumon=], Beowolfmon is closer to a cyborg than an actual wolf.
** [=MagnaGarurumon=] has the appearance of a robotic, anthropomorphic wolf, but with a more slender body build.
** [=MachGaogamon=] is a bipedal Gaogamon in a fighting suit and is equipped with {{Power Fist}}s and a jetpack. Unlike [=WereGarurumon=], [=MachGaogamon=] isn't shown to shrink.
** [=MirageGaogamon=] is a anthropomorphic wolf in a blue full-armor. It's also much larger than [=MachGaogamon=]. Its Burst Mode has it grow long, white hair (although, it could be just decoration of its helmet) and wield an EpicFlail SinisterScythe weapon.
** Shutmon is a purple anthropomorphic wolf dressed in black and wielding a pair of wrist-mounted blades that cause anything they cut to stop working.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'': The 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai introduces a humanoid wolf who is simply called Man-Wolf. He's first mistaken for being a werewolf, but he's a wolf who transforms into a human at full moon. Why he has humanoid features isn't surprising since many anthropomorphic animal people exist on Earth.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': Universe 9's Trio de Danger has a trio of three brothers who have the appearance of humanoid wolfs in different colors.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': The wolf yokais are just kemonomimi people, although they are still dangerous to humans and some other yokai.
* Wolf familiars Arf and Zafira of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'', who are shown as capable of shifting from giant wolves, to this, to full human (i.e., no wolf ears or tails), to FunSize versions of the first two forms. And just to punctuate the Wolf Man image, Arf's first on-screen transformation into a wolf was accompanied with a full moon in the background.
* Liru from ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' turns into a cute little puppy with anything round, strangely enough, except for the full moon.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Like all Zoan Fruit users can turn between human, animal or human-animal-hybrid forms, Jabra is capable of transforming into a wolf-man, thanks to the Dog-Dog-Fruit: Model Wolf he has eaten. The hybrid forms are generally the most powerful forms among Zodiac users (there are exceptions like Chopper, though), so Jabra's wolf-man form is his usual combat form when he goes serious.
* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'': Ginei Morioka is a werewolf and can transform into his wolf-man form at will, but the phase of the moon significantly influences his SuperSpeed. Unlike most examples, Ginei's transformation doesn't rip off his clothes, thus you often see him fully clad as a wolf-man, which might be a bit jarring, since he only wears casual clothes or his school uniform.
* ''Anime/WolfChildrenAmeAndYuki'' is about an InterspeciesRomance between Hana and an unnamed Wolf Man, whose death leaves her to struggle with raising their children (who, as the title indicates, have inherited their father's Wolf Man traits).

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/AgeOfTheWolf'': At first werewolves are just feral quadrupedal beasts, but with every passing moon they become more humanlike as they start standing upright, wearing clothes, and building their own civilization.
* Bigby Wolf from ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'' and the game ''VideoGame/TheWolfAmongUs'' is a wolfwere, a wolf that can transform into a human. In addition to his true form of the BigBadWolf, Bigby can also take the form of a Wolf Man when he needs to fight Fables that are more powerful than his human and half-wolf forms can handle.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}'', [[WellIntentionedExtremist Argent]] is a permanent, non-shifting, Wolf Man.
* Wolfsbane (Rahne Sinclair) of the ComicBook/NewMutants (X-Men, X-Force, Excalibur, X-Factor...) has an interim form of a bipedal wolfgirl/woman (often wearing a leather jacket and some form of trousers). This has become the default 'combat form' for her recent outings. Her fully-wolf 'sensitive senses' form is almost never seen these days.
* The '90s Wrestling/{{WWE}} comic book series ''Wrestling/TheUndertaker'' features Lootan, who was a well-dressed werewolf detective and right hand man to the titular character.
* Mikola Rostov from ''ComicBook/TheWarlord'' was a Russian fencing instructor cursed to become a werewolf every full moon. He tried to escape his curse by moving to world of perpetual sunlight. This was not as successful as he might have hoped.
* John Jameson, son of Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson, has served as a member of Franchise/SpiderMan's rogues gallery as Man-Wolf after being exposed to a moonstone that mutated him into a werewolf.
* The Marvel character ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'', real name [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Jack Russell]]. While the way his werewolf form has been portrayed over the years has varied, he has always looked more or less like a Wolf Man.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* [[DarkMagicalGirl Rider]] of ''Fanfic/FlyOrFall'' is the Fairy of Wolves, so she has these characteristics when transformed, although of the CuteMonsterGirl variety.

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunksMeetTheWolfman'' not only has a character named Lawrence Talbot, but [[spoiler:Theodore becomes a weremunk as well.]]
* The 1961 Film/HammerHorror ''Film/TheCurseOfTheWerewolf'' (a loose adaptation of GuyEndore's ''TheWerewolfOfParis'') starred Creator/OliverReed as the werewolf, humanoid in shape but with a more wolfish and frightening appearance than in the Lon Chaney Jr. film.
* In ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'', Lupin's transformation has him with human-like proportions, bald, and extremely underfed.
* Ron Chaney (grandson of Lon Chaney, Jr.) in ''Film/HouseOfTheWolfMan'' (2009) plays one like his grandfather, but bit more bestial.
* The werewolves in ''Film/TheHowling'' seem to be able to take a pseudo-anthropoid form when convenient (or the better to terrify you with), though they seem to prefer being in full wolf form (though with sharp claws and human degrees of aggressiveness and cruelty).
* Michael Landon in the 1957 film ''Film/IWasATeenageWerewolf'', who turns into a wolfman through hypnotherapy.
* Subverted with the Wookiees of the ''Franchise/StarWars'' universe, which, while not humans who transform, rather closely resemble a Wolf Man due to being upright, humanoid dog-like creatures.
** There's also the Shistavanen and the Defel races, both of which ressemble humanoid wolves.
* The movie ''Film/TeenWolf'' and the AnimatedAdaptation, ''WesternAnimation/TeenWolf: The Animated Series'', featured a light comedy version of this.
* The now-lost 1913 Thanhouser film, ''The Werewolf'', was perhaps the UrExample, although the few--and admittedly vague--descriptions suggest they used a dog or wolf/dog mix for the werewolf rather than making up a human.
* ''The Werewolf'' (1956) has Duncan Marsh, the first on-screen character to turn into a wolfman through scientific means rather than supernatural causes.
* Dean Stockwell in the 1973 film ''The Werewolf of Washington''.
* ''The Werewolf of Woodstock'' (1975) starred Tige Andrews as Bernie, a werewolf who got his lycanthropy through an electrical power surge.
* Jack Nicholson in ''Film/{{Wolf}}''.
* The titular ''Film/WolfCop'', a deliberate choice as the film is a homage to cheesy 80's horror-comedies.
* ''[[Film/TheWolfMan1941 The Wolf Man]]'' (1941) as stated above is one of the main TropeMakers, though perhaps it is more the TropeCodifier and the slightly earlier ''Film/WerewolfOfLondon'' (1935 - not to be confused with the much later ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'') was the TropeMaker. Also [[Film/TheWolfman2010 the 2010 remake]] starring Benicio Del Toro as Lawrence Talbot.

* GuyEndore's 1933 novel ''Literature/TheWerewolfOfParis'' ( a tale of a 19th century French Werewolf) is one of the most important Werewolf novels.
* The "Wolf and Raven" stories, which are part of ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'s'' ExpandedUniverse, feature a man who is possessed by Wolf, one of the many animal totems of the world, which grants him powers and mannerisms similar to the classic Wolf Man (as well as a SplitPersonality, of sorts). This is very different from the game's usual take on werewolves.
* The [[ProudWarriorRace Canim]] of ''Literature/CodexAlera'' are a whole ''species'' of wolfmen - specifically, nine-foot tall wolfmen with enormous physical power and durability and who can live for hundreds and hundreds of years. And they are ''extremely'' competent warriors and fighters, who control a much larger continent with a much more expansive civilization than the Alerans. The only reason Alera remained unconquered by the Canim was because they generally didn't care about Alera, beyond the nation of Narash, which would occasionally launch raids at Alera.
* The ''Literature/{{Bordertown}}'' series has Wolfboy, a human who was targeted by an offended elf, and found himself permanently transformed into this. (She was actually meaning to transform him into a ''dog'', but magic doesn't work so well in Bordertown.)
* The ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}'' has Poledra, who turns out to be a ''natural'' wolf able to shapeshift into a human, a trick she learns from patiently watching sorcerors. Belgarath meets her after he tries his hand at shapeshifting (in the early days of magic, when the sorcerors had to find out everything by themselves), and after they eventually marry, Belgarath spends a lot of his time in wolf form and starts to consider it as natural as his human form. Belgarion, the series' main character, has the time of his life when he gets invited by Poledra to try it too.
* Werewolves in Literature/{{Discworld}} vary enormously in their powers and appearance. The best example of this trope is probably Ludmilla Cake, who is a perfectly presentable young lady for three weeks out of the month, and a perfectly well-behaved Wolf Woman for the remaining week.
%% * The Erasers from the ''Literature/MaximumRide'' series.
* The Lone Lowf in ''Literature/{{Play Places}}'', who is only slightly less savage than a rabid wolf.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' has four different kinds.
** Lycanthropes have the genetic disorder that causes continuous hair growth on their bodies and their change is mostly mental, they tap into a primal rage and strength. They are most connected with this trope.
** Werewolves are people who have mastered one particular spell that allows them to turn into a wolf. The Were-form is often bigger than a normal wolf because they are using their image of a wolf as opposed to an natural wolf.
** Hexenwolves make a DealWithTheDevil to get an AmplifierArtifact that turns them into a beast that is larger and more powerful than a Were-form, but it is addictive.
** Loup-Garu are people who were cursed. They and their descendants will transform into a huge Anthropomorphic Wolf on the full moon. They have a weakness to Inherited Silver as it has an element of sacrifice to it.
** Bob has stated that the ViralTransformation is something that [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent is something that Hollywood took from Vampires]].
* [[MeaningfulName Ulf]] Turesson differs from most wolfmen in that he is about ten - but then, he appears in a Swedish children's novel called ''Jag är en varulvsunge'' - "I am a werewolf ''cub''". (Also, his condition is [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane probably]] just a child-friendly version of a psychosis, not a true metamorphosis.)
%% * [[spoiler: Luke]], Maia and her pack in ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments''.
* Over the course of the last third of ''Literature/AWolfInTheSoul'', Greg's transformation back into human form each morning gradually becomes less and less complete.
* ''Literature/TheBloodWarTrilogy'' uses the SavageWolves Grol as the primary enemy of the protagonists. They appear as nothing so much as a combination of orcs and werewolves with the WolfMan form as their appearance. Interestingly, the Grol are simply the 'evil' faction of a much larger and more diverse race.
* ''Literature/{{Somewhither}}'': The Kynokephalai (dog-headed people of ancient tall tales) in this setting are basically anthropomorphic wolves, which furthermore are invulnerable where their fur covers them. While intelligent, they still have wolfish instincts.
* The poorly-named "beagles" of ''Literature/TheLongEarth'' are another race of wolfmen, who evolved from canids on an alternate version of Earth. They can shift their musculature to optimize for either two- or four-legged locomotion, but lack opposable thumbs, which limits their technological development. They make up for this in cunning and viciousness, and thanks to large litter sizes, suffer huge population booms every generation, which they keep in check through frequent, continent-spanning wars.
* The wolfmen of ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'' are people who's been hit with black magic surge that's tried to turn them into full werewolves, but failed to. As a result, they look like they're stuck in mid-transformation - with humanoid form, but wolf features and fur. In contrast to "true werewolves", they aren't sapient and feel an ever-present need for violence.

* George from ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'' turns into a sort of wolf-man creature during his "time of the month".
* The main character from the aptly-named ''Series/BigWolfOnCampus''.
* The way werewolves in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' are shown varies over the seasons. They started out as a feral-looking wolfmen, walking on two legs but with a wolf-like head. Later they are [[RetCon portrayed]] as quadruped and without a muzzle. The season 8 comics show them as a hybrid of the two, able to walk on two legs but running on four.
** ''Series/{{Angel}}'' showed a 'special' kind of werewolf that differs the ''Buffy'' one (because they are a subspecies). They walk on two legs, have powerful jaws but lack the thick coat of fur. And, [[spoiler:sometimes wind up on someone's buffet table.]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'', "Tooth and Claw": The Doctor and Rose encounter a boy who transforms into a humanoid-looking werewolf (of alien origin, naturally).
* Gou from ''Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger'' had this issue when he first appeared.
** His counterpart RJ in ''Series/PowerRangersJungleFury'' had a similar affliction, though it didn't show up until later, and culminated with him gaining control and becoming the Wolf Ranger.
* Jiro/Garulu of ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' can transform from human to wolfman at will.
* Eddie Munster from ''Series/TheMunsters'' was the werewolf child of a Frankenstein's Monster and Countess {{Dracula}}. You really have to question the genetics of that.

* Apparently the case for [[spoiler: Ethan Chandler]] of ''Series/PennyDreadful''.
* In Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's WidgetSeries ''Solstrom'', the gentle horror pastiche "Howling Wind" has a dreary hotel turned into a Gothic HellHotel. The puzzled, elderly owner decides he will just conduct business as usual, but as the episode progresses, it becomes clear that his hair [[Main/EinsteinHair permanently frizzing out]] when the transformation occurred was just the first stage of his slowly turning into this. [[spoiler:TheStinger reveals his final, classic Hollywood wolfman form. At least he's a ReluctantMonster -- as he's preoccupied with being a good host, he never loses his pleasant-at-heart nature.]]
* All of the werewolves in ''Series/TeenWolf''. Beta wolves are the best example of this, being humanoid with wolf-like features. Alphas are more like the classic werewolf. And there's also a type that can go fully into wolf form, too.
* Wolf from ''Series/TheTenthKingdom''.
* Parodied: [[Series/ThirtyRock Werewolf bar mitzvah/Spooky, scary/Boys becoming men/Men becoming wolves...]]
* The canid-based wesen from ''Series/{{Grimm}}'': Blutbaden (wolves), Schakal (jackals), Hundjaegers (dogs), Fuchsbaus (foxes), Coyotl (coyotes), etc.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Werewolves, wolfweres (wolves that could take human shape) and greater wolfweres could half-change, thus gaining a hybrid mostly human body.
* Not surprisingly, the game ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' was all about these, as is its successor, ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken''. Werewolves in both have a hybrid form (Crinos in ''Apocalypse'', Gauru in ''Forsaken'') and the wide range of other werecreatures in both old and new Worlds of Darkness have such forms as well.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}''
** There's a virus which turns people into "Loups Garous", increasing their hair growth and receding their gums, making their teeth look like fangs. Their murderous activities and rise in strength and aggression aren't linked to the full moon, but follow an even 28-days-cycle. However, they don't gain animal traits, beyond the extra hair. What Shadowrun does have are Shapeshifters, as in normal animals of all varieties spontaneously giving birth to magically active stock able to take on human form. Plus all the dragons who've learned the ability...
** Michael Stackpole's ''Wolf and Raven'' short story "If as Beast You Don't Succeed" in Ka•Ge magazine Volume 1 Issue 12. Wolfgang Kies can turn into a half-man half-wolf form.

* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' 3E sourcebook ''Bestiary'' Second Edition. Were-Creatures (such as werewolves) could have a "Beast-Man" form, an anthropomorphic blend of human and animal.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The Abhorrent Beast from ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'' is a variant of [[ShockAndAwe Darkbeasts]] which retains human intelligence, stands with two legs and possesses a certain degree of sentience. [[spoiler: The Afflicted Beggar found in Forbidden Woods is a living proof of their intelligence and sentience.]]
* ''VideoGame/GabrielKnight: The Beast Within''.
** Averted: [[spoiler:Von Zell, Von Glower, and Gabriel]] all turn into full-fledged wolves, albeit [[ConspicuousCG obviously computer rendered]] ones. However, the in-game opera "Der Fluch Des Engelhart" plays this trope straight with the actors donning wolf masks.
* One level of ''[[VideoGame/OsuTatakaeOuendan Osu! Tatake! Ouendan 2]]'' has the group cheering on a werewolf as he struggles to keep from transforming in front of his girlfriend. Made more difficult for him because he transforms just by seeing things that are round, including balls, ice cream, and bald heads. If the player fails the song, the poor lug gets carted off to the pound. The actual ending of the stage has him finally transform in front of his astonished girlfriend (set off by her ''eyes''), who turns out to be happy because she loves dogs.
** Poor kid's name is even Goro Okami, with the kanji for "Wolf Boy" on his shirt.
* Werewolves are a common enemy in the PC game ''VideoGame/{{Nocturne}}'', appearing in all but one chapter, and they can be killed with any weapons; it's just that silver bullets kill them a lot faster.

* J. Talbain of ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}''.
* Tinek/T'Nique/whatever from ''[[VideoGame/StarOcean1 Star Ocean]]''. Despite the series borrowing heavily from ''Franchise/StarTrek'' he's the only thing that comes close to being a shapeshifter in any of the games.
* Kevin from ''VideoGame/SeikenDensetsu3'' is a beastman that turns into a full wolfman at night. This effectively gives him two sets of moves to the other characters' one.
* Berserkers in ''VideoGame/BattleRealms'' can be given the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Lycanthropy]] ability.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has the Worgen, a race of Wolfmen that infects others through biting. Though most Worgen are feral, the Kingdom of Gilneas manages to create a "cure" that, while not removing the curse, allows the Worgen to retain their human minds while in Worgen form. The Gilnean Worgen were added to TheAlliance as a playable race in the third expansion, ''Cataclysm''.
* Yugo Ogami of the aforementioned ''VideoGame/BloodyRoar'' series.
* In ''VideoGame/AlteredBeast'', the first (and also the last) beast the player can turn into is a Werewolf - [[http://www.i-mockery.com/shorts/altered-beast/3.gif preceded by a]] TransformationSequence - which is a muscular and furry man with a wolf head.
* Gerhalt from ''VideoGame/ShiningForce II'' becomes this upon promotion. It is unknown whether or not he has the ability to return to his human form.
* Kagerou Imaizumi from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}} 14'' is a Wolf-Woman, despite her masculine name. And despite having very prominent wolf nature, she's actually a calm person-- she wears a long gown!
* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', the population of Maugrim Woods seems to be mainly wolf-people (called Wargare), and there's conflict between them and [[LittleRedFightingHood a young woman called Scarlett]]. It's also available as a selection for the player character.
* Though most of the "wolves" in ''VideoGame/ThePath'' are fully human in appearance, [[spoiler: Robin's wolf]] takes this form.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': Wolf men, described as people with the heads and tails of wolves, are included in the multitude of bipedal animals found inhabiting Savage biomes. When dwarves like them, they will do so for their cunning. Dingo men (who will eat dorf babies) and coyote men are also present.
* Brad Fang of ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}: Hard Corps''. He looks like what might happen if Film/TheTerminator somehow suffered from lycanthropy, being a musclebound humanoid werewolf cyborg with CoolShades and a [[GatlingGood Gatling]] ArmCannon.
* ''Franchise/BlazBlue'': Valkenhayn R. Hellsing is a member of the beastkin and can alternate between human form and wolf form. Most of the time, he's in human form and when he fights, he either transforms just his limbs or he fully transforms into a wolf. However, for his [[OneHitKill Astral Heat]], he transforms into a wolf-man to absolutely kill his opponent, making it his strongest form.

* ''Webcomic/GrimTrigger'': There's one at the beginning of book four that wants to fight Tage. [[SensingYouAreOutmatched He declines.]]
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has the fanged, green, and hairy Jagermonsters. They mix elements of the Wolf Man, JekyllAndHyde, and SuperSoldier. On top of that, they're just plain goofy. Unt don' anybody forgetink ze silly German akzent! Und die ''hatszen''.
* One of the supporting characters in ''[[http://www.noroomformagic.com/ No Room for Magic]]'' is Roy, [[http://www.noroomformagic.com/d/20050915.html whose dad turned him into a werewolf]] so that he could survive gym class.

* While [[spoiler: Jade's [[PhysicalGod God Tier]] form]] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' starts out as simply LittleBitBeastly with a few behaviors resembling those of a domestic dog, she's still mostly human... until [[spoiler: [[BigBad the Condesce]]]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy takes control]] and [[spoiler: turns her [[FanNickname Grim bark]]. While not changing in outward appearance except for [[spoiler: the darkness of her skin]] and the [[TechnicolorEyes stylistic effect]] of turning her irises [[spoiler: into the Green Sun]], her primal, canine rage has been brought out enough that there is a lycanthropic character to her transformation.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}!'' did a parody of the original ''The Wolf Man'' with an obvious Lon Chaney Jr. parody coming to Dexter for help with his werewolf problem. Freakazoid, after forcing him to suffer numerous indignities, ultimately cured him by dumping him into the internet and back out again. This same episode even parodied the frame-by-frame transformations of the original Wolfman, for both the Lon Chaney Jr. {{Expy}} and Freakazoid himself. It was one of the funniest moments in a series [[Funny/{{Freakazoid}} full of them]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did it during a ''[[HalloweenEpisode Treehouse of Horror]]'' episode where Ned Flanders becomes a werewolf.
* ''WesternAnimation/MaryShelleysFrankenhole'' has one that's similar to Lawrence Talbot but a ''lot'' whinier and mopier. He's often used [[DeusExMachina to transform a visiting character into a werewolf]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonsterForce'', one of the protagonists, Luke, is the grandson of the protagonist from ''Film/TheWolfMan1941'' and assumes a similar "BeastMan with lupine features" look when he transforms. Strangely, Niles Lupon, who cursed Luke's grandfather in this continuity, looks like a hulking anthropomorphic wolf when ''he'' transforms.
* WesternAnimation/CountDuckula got chased by one in a MonsterMash episode. It should be noted that this wolf man doesn't really look like a wolf, on the count of being originally an anthropomorphic bird.
