The Werewolf is one of the monsters imprisoned in The Facility. It is bet on by Finance on the whiteboard.

Appearance and characteristicsEdit

A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope, is a creature that is part wolf, part human. In many fictitious examples, a human transforms into a Werewolf often as a result a curse or abnormal family lineage and, for some reason, typically involves direct exposure to a full moon. The transformation is usually shown to be quite excruciating and once finished, any semblance of the human's personality or humanity is mostly, if not fully overridden by the werewolf's animality. Werewolves are feral, immensely strong creatures who would attack anyone they come across in the night. They would usually return to human form the following morning with little to no memory of their time as a werewolf.

Items containing pure silver are often used to incapacitate or kill a werewolf as they seem to be a notable weakness to them.


The werewolf is the first monster Dana and Marty see in the glass rooms.

During the System Purge, the werewolf is in the first wave of monsters where it kills two of the guards, one of them is killed instantly when the werewolf jumps and slashes at him and eats from the other and then howls. Amongst the chaos in the Facility, the werewolf attacks a worker. Later in the ritual chamber, Dana is attacked by the werewolf, but Marty manages to shoot it, chasing it away.

The item in the basement designated for summoning the werewolf is an amulet.


Werewolves are folkloric creatures that appear in many stories and films over the years. Famous film and literature examples include The Wolf Man, An American Werewolf In London, The Howling, Dog Soldiers, and Wolf.


  • The Werewolf is performed by Richard Cetrone, who also performed the Merman.
