An Epic List of 100+ Werewolf & Wolf Shifter Descriptions



The Lycanthrope or Werewolf has been described in various ways in both literature and the movies, depending on the mythos used or created. Some describe him or her as an upright creature, some on all fours, but both variations are vicious beasts. Then there is the Wolfman, who is more of a beastly man than a completely transformed creature, sometimes fully clothed and very hairy. However, he will still tear your throat out if crossed, unless of course its Michael J. Fox as Teen Wolf. 

Another creature that has re-emerged and has been very popular lately is the Wolf Shapeshifter, in which a man or woman fully transforms into a wolf. The shift can occur regardless of the moon cycle and some shapeshifters have triggers like rage, while others can change at will.

Whatever the rules are or mythos used for your man to wolf story, many descriptions of Lycanthrope and/or Wolf Shifter are the same or at least very similar. So, I've listed over a hundred descriptions to help describe your version of this creature as well as its transformation. I hope it spurs your imagination. I'm sure once that door is opened you'll think of many more descriptions, I know I did.
