How To Kill A Werewolf

Werewolves or lycanthropes are mythical man-beast hybrid creatures that exist in the legends of many different cultures throughout the world. The transformation has been said to occur for many different reasons and in many different ways, but the most common form of the myth in horror stories today is the man who changes into a wolf or wolf-like beast on every full moon and who can turn others into werewolves by biting them.

A werewolf traditionally possesses supernatural strength and augmented senses as well as the natural hunting instincts and weapons of the wolf, like menacing jaws and claws. Therefore, they are formidable monsters and very hard to kill. One of the most ancient talismans against lycanthropy is the herb wolfsbane (said to have grown from the saliva of Cerberus, the three-headed dog guardian of the Greek underworld, when Hercules brought him up to the surface world). Other herbs that legends say are effective as werewolf repellents include rye, mistletoe, and mountain ash (rowan).

Werewolves are not affected by religious symbols like crucifixes and holy water (unlike their counterpart monsters, vampires), but in modern fiction, they are vulnerable to weapons containing silver, such as silver bullets or silver blades. The silver bullet is the most iconic anti-werewolf weapon, but in many stories, anything silver causes agonizing pain if it touches the beast. Therefore, to be most certain of killing the monster, a werewolf hunter should carry good quantities of wolfsbane, rye grains, mistletoe, and mountain ash leaves or wood, and be armed with a variety of well-made silver weapons.

Since it is likely that a werewolf will overpower a human in close combat, it is essential to have a gun or two custom-designed to shoot silver bullets at a long range; once disabled by the gun, the werewolf can be finished off if necessary using a sword or axe with a silver-plated blade.


  1. That is not all true you can kill a werewolf with out silver ou need to get it to the flor nd cut off its head when that is goo the wolf will die thought it is much easier with a silver gun or bullet or sword. wolf hunting fun times

  2. Killing a werewolf with wolfsbane is a joke among us wolves. It actually has many helpful uses to us like antibiotics, it can forge a transformation when in large doses, but in small doses can prevent a transformation. On the other hand, silver is our kryptonite but like any animal if you want to kill it you have to hit vital spots. If you want to cut our heads off you first have to get close enough and I doubt any human could do that without at least loosing a limb first.

  3. u people really believe u can kill a warewolf without getting killed…u humans dont know anything about immortal me.. GET A LIFE PEOPLE DONT U HAVE ANYTHING ELTS TO DO THAN TO LOOK UP HOW TO KILLA WAREWOLFE..and BTW vampires and warewolves r friends

    1. If they are freinds then why did a vampier try to kill me and im a ten year old werewolf so i ended up killing him just because he wanted to kill me but during the fight i got bit by the vampier and now weird things are going on and i just found out two weeks ago that now im a hybrid so dont say that vampiers are freinds cause there not so it looks like someone has been watching to much movies and that person isyou wolfqueen

      P.S try staying alive for your sake

  4. The idea of the silver bullet killing werewolves has its origins in the story of the Beast of Gevaudan which was ultimately dispatched with a blessed silver bullet in 1765. As far as killing a real werewolf they are generally as vulnerable as a natural animal to physical damage, however base metals such as iron or silver will rupture their the etheric form so you can face the (now wounded) person inside.

    Its funny when you claim to be a werewolf and cant even spell the word right when its in giant bubble letters on the top of the page and written 50 plus times in the arcticle and comments. Yet clearly you know nothing what so ever about werewolves outside the world of ficiton and roleplaying games.
    Outside of fiction the only werewolves are the occult kind and the transformation is done through religio-magic ritual. Many people on here are claiming to actaully be werewolves in the sense that they are portrayed in the movies and games, dont get me wrong I like werewolf movies myself, but the actual truth behind the werewolf is a very ancient shamanic tradition that is still practiced today and we are the only real werewolves. For future reference I would do a little research into a subject and find out whats “under the skin” before making such silly claims on a public forum, I mean if you want to be taken seriously, in the mean time us true werewolf practioners will have to suffice with a good laugh at your expense.
    “fiction can be fun but I find the reference section much more enlightening!”

  5. silver only affects us that it forces us back into human form, besides that, it only does damage like it would to you humans

  10. Vampires and Werewolves have been mortal enemies since the death of Dracula! Why Dracula? Well because us Werewolves had a deal with the guy over which villages and towns would be Vampire feeding grounds and and which ones were Werewolf feeding grownd. And because he was supposed to be imortal. But, as we all know he wasn’t so…yeah. After his funeral(we didn’t have his body) and respect was payed to the great elder, the Vampires dishonored the agreement and attacked our kind. Since then…well…i’ll just say much blood has been spilled.

    PS- I know, I was there…

  12. Let me clear something up, fake comments: The vampires and werewolves being enemies thing is a myth. As a matter of fact, it was common for killed werewolves to become vampires if proper precautions were not taken. THe claim that they’re enemies was made up by Hollywood.
