Werewolf

Werewolves (ワーウルフ, Wāurufu), also known as "Wolfmen"", "Wolf People"" or "Lycantrophes", are a pseudohuman Liminal species of beings who are spoken in myth of possessing the ability to shapeshift between the form of a human and the form of a wolf.

While the image of the 'lone wolf' is popular, they actually prefer communal living in the form of packs. While most Liminal species are affected by the Full Moon, Werewolves can prove even more trouble due to their pack social structure and their great physical strength.

Physiological Attributes[]

  • Transformation: In addition to their animalistic humanoid form, Werewolves are capable of transforming (voluntary or otherwise) into a wolf form.
    • Other werebeasts are able to transform into animal forms based on their species as well.
  • Full Moon: As with most liminal species, the Full Moon stimulates a Werewolf's primal instincts and may render even individuals who are otherwise emotionally coherent during their transformations to become savage and difficult to restrain. It is advised to actively avoid encounters with Werewolves during this time as the likelihood of injury due to the werewolf's unrestrained mind is severe.
  • Sense of Smell: Due to her wolf-like biology, Werewolfes have a sense of smell that is much stronger than that of a human. As shown in Chapter 85, a Werewolf can not only determine the gender of a person through his sense of smell, but also roughly its species, since, for example, plant-like Liminals such as Alraunes smell like flowers.
  • Superhuman Strength: Werewolves are physically much stronger than an average human. This, combined with their quick reflexes, allows them to defeat even large and strong Liminals such as Orcs in combat as seen with Garu in Chapter 84. In Chapter 85, Garu also claims that even a Minotaur is no match for the strength of a Werewolf.


Other Werebeasts[]

Orthrus[]

773

Orthrus is a unique werewolf-like species that shares a consciousness between two bodies. Each individual Orthrus, while possessing one consciousness, mind and soul, possesses two physical bodies that can operate independently or in tandem to each other. As an Orthrus' two bodies are actually one person, both bodies can speak in synchronization, can share their thoughts and experiences between each other and can even physically feel what the other is physically feeling.

Luthros is an Orthrus.

Werecat[]

Werecat

Werecats are a pseudohuman species of beings who are spoken in myth of possessing the ability to shapeshift between the form of a human and the form of a cat.

Sometimes treated as gods in certain areas, werecats are flighty and pleasure-seeking, and can be hard to get along with as a result. However, they are strongly susceptible to matatabi (also known as Silvervine; an alternative to catnip that serves as a popular cat treat in Asia) and, if exposed to it, will become docile and extremely affectionate. Many things, including matatabi, may also produce a Flehmen response in werecats.

Were and Suzie are Werecats.

Werefox[]

Main article: Yokai
WereFox

Werefoxes are a pseudohuman species of beings who are spoken in myth of possessing the ability to shapeshift between the form of a human and the form of a fox.

Also known in Japan as belonging to the "Yokai" subspecies group, for some reason, many werefoxes take up positions as miko shrine maidens. A variation of this subspecies possess nine tails and are called Kitsune; these individuals are said to possess rudimentary transformation powers.

Wererabbit[]

Wererabbit

Wererabbits are a pseudohuman species of beings who are spoken in myth of possessing the ability to shapeshift between the form of a human and the form of a rabbit.

As rabbits are commonly thought to be in heat all year long, wererabbits are often asked if this is the case with them as well, much to their displeasure. In fact, even among true rabbits this is only the case for the European rabbit, so it is not accurate for wererabbits. With that said, their sex drive is actually very close to that of the European rabbit.

Trivia[]

  • The word "werewolf" is a compound with the archaic English word wer. Etymologically, "man" was once genderless, and wer referred to a male adult. Hence, the not-uncommon female lycanthrope should more strictly be a "wifwolf" (or "woman-wolf"). A common mistake is to use the word lycanthropy to describe any case of a being able to shift between human and animal forms, as the root word "lyc" specifically means "wolf" (the proper term for other animal types is therianthropy—or, if you like, "werebeast").
    • While lycanthropy describes the transformation of a human into a Werewolf, ailuranthropy or galeanthrophy is the term for the transformation of a human into a Werecat, while alopecanthropy is the term for the transformation of a human into a Werefox.
  • It is not clearly confirmed whether the Orthrus in Monster Musume is actually a Werebeast or a Werewolf subspecies as Luthros' two bodies more closely resemble female Kobolds and the fact that Orthros was a two-headed dog in Greek mythology and not a wolf could indicate that the Orthrus is actually a Kobold subspecies. Luthros' name is also not a clear indication of this because it is a word fusion that includes the Latin term "Lupus" and although this term is mainly associated with wolves (Canis lupus), it could also refers to the domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris).
  • It is unknown whether Werebeasts in Monster Musume are also able to turn humans into Werebeasts through bites. As far at is known, Werebeasts are not considered dangerous in the same way that Vampires are considered dangerous by the Japanese Government, it is possible that they cannot infect humans, although Werewolves at least are probably considered dangerous due to their savage ferocity during the full moon as described in the infocard.
  • Like the witchcraft trials as a whole, the trials of werewolves emerged in what is now Switzerland in the early 15th century and spread throughout Europe in the 16th, peaking in the 17th and subsiding by the 18th century.
  • The image of a man and/or woman being subjugated, exposed and bred/mated by or with a werewolf is sexually appealing to some due to the nature of some cultures considering animals to be sexually superior to humans. These cultures view the fact that because animals conceive more easily than humans, give birth faster/more easily, have more offspring per pregnancy, and possess attributes that allow them to survive, fornicate and flourish naturally in their habitat (without assistance from tools), animals (and by association, non-humans) must be superior to humans on a primal and sexual level and as a result ancient cultures have attempted to copy and emulate animals and animal-attributes for centuries in the attempt to gain and/or demonstrate strength. For those that follow these beliefs, the notion of a human engaging a non-human in sex (be it an animal, beast, non-human or alien) arouses their instinctual drive to mate with a superior being to, objectively, produce stronger offspring. The image of a werewolf, a physically superior being of both human and animal attributes, only further arouses this instinctual reasoning.
