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:
- Absurdly Sharp Claws: Kara disembowels a Death Key guard with a swipe of her claws.
- 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.
- Ambiguously Absent Parent: Raina, Mia, and Mai’s mother, unlike their father the Death Alpha, is never seen or mentioned.
- 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: Ursa, the keeper of the Womb of Warriors, is a friendly grizzly bear.
- 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: Lightning reacts angrily when he notices his attacker, Raina, is female.
- Groin Attack: Raina pretends to seduce Lightning, only to kick him in the groin.
- Partially Civilized Animal: The wolves live in packs in the forest, yet they also have books, swords, and handcuffs.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over:
- The Death Alpha, the main villain, is a hellhound with such fur colors.
- Zar has a pelt that is literally half-red and half-black. He's a villain that takes a Heel–Face Turn.
- Arrow, to an extent. He starts off as a bad-tempered recluse, but eventually warms up to the others.
- 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.
