Wolf Song: The Movie is a film-length web animation themed around wolf characters.
The film starts with two dogs living on their own. Abandoned by their father, the brother and sister rely only on each other. One morning they're found out by a wolf who, instead of attacking them, offers to take the duo back to his pack. There, the siblings are initiated into the pack with one catch: They're transformed into wolves.
Wolf Song: The Animation provides examples of:
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Most of the wolves have abnormal colours for wolves, but there are also outright technicolor ones as well.
- Animal Religion: Wolves used to be nothing more than thoughtless killers until the gods gave them free-will. Originally, there was no place for these wolves' souls to go upon death, so the gods created the Stone of Souls for them. Greedy wolves would often use the stone's power for their own gain, so the gods made it harder for them to do so. They made it so that only pure-hearted wolves could access the power, with the Book of Legends as their guide. To keep the stone safe, the gods hid it and created beings to hide the stone.
- Animesque: Anime tropes such as sweatdrops are used occasionally.
- Beary Friendly: The Keeper of the Cave is a friendly grizzly bear.
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: It's not explained why or even how, but various characters have an accessory to make them stand out. This includes earrings, headbands, and feathers.
- Canine Confusion: The video strives on Rule of Cool rather than anything remotely accurate. For instance, real wolves don't hide in trees or have retractable claws.
- Heinous Hyena: Cobalt is a wolf that happens to look a lot like a hyena. He fits the snively mook stereotype associated with hyenas.
- Humans Are Cthulhu: The protagonists are wary of humans for fear of being killed.
- I Was Beaten by a Girl: One character reacts angrily when he notices his attacker is female.
- Loads and Loads of Characters: There are dozens of characters. Many aren't even named.
- Groin Attack: A female character pretends to seduce a male one, only to kick him in the groin.
- Partially Civilized Animal: The wolves live in packs in the forest, yet they also have books and swords.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Arrow has a pelt that is literally half-red and half-black. He's a villain that takes a HeelFace Turn.
- Somewhere, a Mammalogist Is Crying: The film strives on Rule of Cool rather than anything remotely accurate. For instance, wolves don't hide in trees.
- Through a Face Full of Fur: Characters blush even though they're wolves.
