The Many Ways To Become A Werewolf

I bet many of you are wondering how someone is turned into a werewolf. We all know the most popular way which involves being bitten by another werewolf. But if you take a look at folklore, old customs and traditions throughout the world you’ll learn that there are several ways someone was believed to turn into a werewolf. A warning though, many of these ideas came from the middle ages, a time when people believed in most anything, so some things on this list may be a bit ridiculous.

How To Become A Werewolf

  • Being bitten by another werewolf
  • Being scratched or clawed by another werewolf
  • Selling your soul to the devil
  • Wearing an enchanted belt made of wolf skin/fur, known as a wolf-belt
  • Applying a magic salve to one’s body
  • Black magic and witchcraft
  • Eating lycanthropous flowers (white or yellow flowers said to be in the Balkans)
  • Inhaling certain potions
  • Simply wearing an animal’s pelt
  • Placing a real wolf pelt on one’s body and then drinking beer mixed with blood
  • Drinking water from a wolf’s paw print
  • Eating the brains of a wolf
  • Spells and rituals
  • Having sex with a werewolf
  • Eating an unborn fetus
  • Wearing a belt made of the skin of a executed criminal
  • Being cursed by a witch or troll
  • Being born on Christmas Eve
  • Being blasphemous and getting cursed for your sins
  • Genetics (having a werewolf in your family)
  • Drinking from a lycanthropous stream
  • Drinking downstream from wolves
  • Sleeping on a Friday night under the full moon with the moon shining directly on your face
  • Being the seventh son
  • Being a child conceived under a new moon
  • Not going to confession for 10 years
  • Being gruesomely murdered on a full moon
  • Being born on a full moon Friday
  • Tasting human flesh
  • Being chosen by the Native American wolf spirit

Like I said, folks in the middle ages believed in anything. Instead of explaining things with science, they explained it with religion and superstition. So for those that wish to become a werewolf, don’t expect any of these methods to actually work.

    1. eating the skin round your fingernails and chewing your lip could be signs of an anxiety disorder and it doesn’t have anything to do with lycanthropy

    2. i think they might have worked on me my step mother is a witch and she did a spell on me because i howl a lot a stronger than before and i am growing a lot more hair than usual

      1. Well you can’t become a werewolf you must be born one and the transformation into a wolf ie the body changing is extremely rare If you actually pay attention to the legends and have read sabine baring goulds the book of werewolves you’d know that in most of the tales the person falls asleep and their soul takes on the form of a wolf and there are four variations first you have the human form then the wolf form ie regular wolf form then the giant wolf form aka monster wolf then you have the bipedal form through research since child hood I’ve found the occult and monsters fascinating and I’ve got many many of the signs of a werewolf I’m allergic to silver I get hyperagressive during a full or blue moon its alot worse on the blue moon which is a second full moon in a month I have a unibrow which is kept shaved and my ring finger is slightly longer than my middle finger I’m an astral werewolf I’m able to hear high frequency noises in fact I can hear tones that are higher than a dog whistle I had my hearing tested I also walk digitigrade ie on my toes it’s the only way I have any balance. And it’s one of the ways to run faster it’s not a curse but you can’t be turned and if you like me are an astral werewolf it’ll manifest from birth my mom has stated that as a baby I’d growl and had many wolf like personality traits and my eyes are shaped like a wolfs eyes as well 99.9 percent of everything ppl know about werewolves comes from movies

      2. Are you a werewolf now because ima kid I’m 11 years old and I really wanna be like the movie teen wolf so please tel her to put a spell on me

      3. To. Mrs.Werewolf

        you Know that you could just be a Dream because 1
        i know everything the fact is that google lies. Snd how do we know that your not joking just to look cool

        P.S. its not working
        From. Luna Lycan

  1. I was born in the morning of may 5 2000 that night there was a full moon and all the planets alinght( sorry for bad english) and i hope i’m a werewolf???

  2. There are also some myths where one can be born a werewolf, and it’s not a curse, but a blessing from a god. The ulfhednar, a type of werewolf, were shamans of Odin who needed wolf skins to transform. According to myths, the wolf-skins would only work for the ulfhednar. For a regular human, the wolf-skin would just be an interesting looking cape. An interesting bits of trivia about the ulfhednar, in their human form they were purported to have the strength of “ten stout warriors,” but once they transformed that would increase tenfold. Ulfhednar were not affected by the moon, instead they went into a berserker frenzy to change. Also, according to myth, they could only be killed by either staving in their skulls or decapitating them. Silver won’t work on these wolves!

    1. Your wrong about the ulfhethnar they were lupine warriors othins elite warriors more elite than the berserkers they ran into battle naked and it has been said that some stories stated that the were known to bite through their shield cuz of the furious state they were in and that neither steel nor fire could harm them the werewolf in norse mythology is known as a warg which is where Tolkien got the name for his wolves its still not known how the ulfhethnar or berserkers got into their animalistic state there are many theories but non have been proven as of yet

  3. Well if not going to confession for ten years would turn you into a werewolf I should have already been one by now.

  4. i was born on new moon, and i have a lot a wolf instinctes. but being conseved on new moon do you mean at night or just the gernal day?

  5. Who wants to join my wolf pack say , howl if you want to be in my wolfblood pack cause I have 2 members that are in my pack

        1. I wanna become a werewolf but dont wants to be scary and I definitely don’t wanna kill people. Some one plz tell me how I’m gonna be a werewolf.

      1. Its not like teen wolf you transform only @ night and on full moon buh yhu always have ur full potentials as a werewolf in ur human form
        Yhu can only grow fangs and claws wen angry buh its all about mind control

          1. Werewolves can also transform at will, not at the full moon. Plus, werewolves biting you to make you a werewolf is a lie, you will just get a nasty scar from it.

    1. i agree with the teen wolf this isent a game your giving up stuff in order to be a werewolf and I’m a werewolf and i had to give up everthing and you have to control your self when you become a werewolf i can’t even see my friends bc I’m scared I’m going to hurt them

  6. I need help, up until about a month ago I thought I was just average but now I can hear things a lot clearer for example: my house backs out onto a large park that is probably about 400 metres in width and I was sitting in my lounge watching TV and then I heard a phone ring. I searched around my house for the phone that was ringing but I could not find one. I then went onto hear a one sided conversation between a boy which seemed to be talking on a phone. Obviously I thought I was going insane but then I looked out from my kitchen window onto the park and right on the other side was a boy talking on his mobile. The person I could hear said on the phone that he was just leaving and then the boy across the park hung up and then walked in the direction of the exit.

    It wasn’t a coincidence because I have had many expierences like that.

    Another thing is that my anger levels are raising. I can get annoyed at anything. But before I never used to and I would definitely never confront someone about my annoyance or anger.

    My attention to detail has definitely increased. I can see everything a lot clearer and see everything in a scene or picture not just focus on one thing.

    To be quite honest I was a crap runner. I’d get tired after literally the first 5 metres of a run. But recently I have set two school running records. It’s unbelievable, I don’t get tired and I run a hell of a lot faster.

    I think I need help, surely I can’t be a werewolf, I haven’t been bitten, scratched, cast a spell or something or anything else.

    Please someone talk to me I need help from a werewolf perspective.

      1. I don’t want to be a werewolf but I want to have Super human abilities, and run faster and see clearly and hear things from afar and emm……. Its more like having werewolfs abilities but don’t want to become one pls help I need ways to develop such abilities without selling my soul to the devil

    1. Are you really a werewolf? I’m trying to figure out how the werewolf thing works and I would like to run fast as well.

  7. i want red eyes and black fur just the hair and the claws and fangs and this what i want i don’t just want be a full body werewolf i want to be a shapeshifter

      1. It’s funny you say that cuz my lupine soul is a black wolf with red eyes and with each of my tattoos I get a new silverish grey marking on my fur its through astral travel that we wolves learn abojt our wolf form

  8. Okay. the only thing I want to do if I REALLY want to become a werewolf, is to do a spell or a ritual.
    Someone please grant me one so that I will join the pack.

  9. I always liked Wolves and the moon sadly around the same time each month my stinking tail bone hurts when I sit down

  10. I have strong as heck jaws and my teeth a quite sharp. I am a really fast runner, but I have a longer torso than normal. I can hear quiet music at the other side of a large house and I can smell cookies baking when the window is open and I am across the street from the house baking cookies. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!

  11. Oh please tell me the sex thing isn’t true. That could cause problems. I mean, I’ve never asked, so wait was someone supposed to warn me about this? Wait but that’s stupid. My species isn’t an STD. I mean, I think it isn’t. Jesus please tell me you’re kidding or that that one isn’t true.

  12. please someone help i have felt i am a wolf for all my life i love dogs and wolves and i have a strong but wierd connection to them sometimes i want to run with wolves and howl to the moon. ever since i was 7 years old i was looking for wolf spells and potions but none of them worked i am now almost 11 and i want and i need to become a wolf someone please please help!!!! i feel like a part of me is missing and i am not lying. so can someone please help me become a wolf? and i meen no fake stuff no potions or spells or any of that crap i really want to be a wolf!!! someone help me asap

    1. as a little girl i always wanted to be a werewolf or wolf and i got that chanse when i was 10 years old i was walking through my back yard when i saw a wolf standing there it just stared at me then walked away i followed it deeper into the forest and we came into a cleering i went into the middle and then wolfs sarounded me it was a full moon and and the wolf i followed changed into a human and she said “do not be afraid we will not hurt you you are one of use” she shoude me how to be a wolf

      1. Please tell me how to be a wolf I’m only 11 years old I don’t so much research I just don’t know how to be a wolf

      2. Bro that line is from a movie lol. You want to know something real, I got more prominent canines then most people, in half the schools I went to people literally call me a werewolf, almost every dog I cross try’s to run towards me (but that could just be because dogs are dogs) I once went to see some wolves at a nature center and immediately walk towards me, I then started a full on conversation with them I sat the for like 3 hours chillin with them; I was very sad when I had to go.

  13. I’ve always been different having a good sense of smell and hearing and love the moon and running through the the night any ideas why I could be so different

  14. OK no offense but I’m just going to tell you this. Werewolves are not like giant wolves because we all know that is not a thing, you just stay in your human form but still grow claws and all the other stuff. You really think you actually turn into a wolf??

  15. How would someone who had werewolf ancestors several generations apart trigger the beast blood?

    1. Its like genetics and traits. Also it doesn’t have to be several generations apart, it could be your parents or grandparents.

  16. Ok im 17th yo, i like this creature since 13yo, now i felt my hair(legs/hands/chest/between eye brows)/fur are slightly longer/grow, and my fangs feeling like slightly bit sharp maybe :v, and my nails are kinda hurt. Sorry its long story but i dont want to share this, tbh ~ 4 Ag 2018 ~

  17. Hello folks, My name is Justin, I’m here to share how I met with Mr. Volkov, before I got transform into a vampire, I always have the belief within that I was destine to be higher being and I even dreamt of it like I’m living a second life, I was in search for a solution until I find an article that referred me to contact Mr. Volkov, And he told me about the dedication and the advancement of the human species by taking oaths and the pledges are a core tradition of the vampire community. and it was pretty much my desire and I follow the terms and I gave a try and it really works out for me, I’m not here to convince or advertise anything, give a try by contact via email: ( ), In a space of 5 days, A vampire blood will be sent to you via courier, giving a try doesn’t worth any harm. thanks and good luck.

    1. do vampires really hate the sun and garlic and if so i dont want to become a vampire and only have to drink blood id miss food

      1. Thats it if vampires hate sunlight then to turn back into a human you have to go in to the sunlight outside

  18. For the umpteenth time YOU do NOT want to be a werewolf(any more than you would want to be a vampire!!!). It’s NOT like in the movies or comic books!!!

  19. My roots go back to a pack in canada. I believe i am a descendant from a werewolf bloodline because i have dreams of them every night. I see a beautiful black wolf walk next to me. when it upset and it has made me grow very fond of him. I don’t know why but I think that I have a native american wolf spirit attached to me and I love it. Then I got to thinking life would be simpler if I lived in the woods as a wolf and wouldn’t have to deal with anyones bull. People think i’m a joke. so when I graduate class of 2019 I will pursue the career as an environmental officer and live in the forest of alaska.

  20. #1 the story of Werewolf are real. #2 there is no magic to werewolves. the main story started in England were candles and lamp oil was to high for normal use. So when the MOON was full people would go to town under moon light Dance get drunk party. (ever go out under the full moon). In a small town when the moon was full young girls was ripped apart on there way home from parties in the town. Ripped apart so bad that the local priest was said to say no animal or human can have done this. WELL turned out HUMAN was who did it. He would ambush a girl (drunk) under the light of a full moon and drag her off Rape her kill her eat parts of her rape her some more eat more rape more take parts home for later to eat. When found out escaped and headed for London was killing ANYONE that he found along his way. captured and hung…he was believed to have lunacy (moon sickness) NO NOT true was insane. Just like raping and eating girls.

  21. I want to be a werewolf soo badly but I’m scared if I do work-out unexpectedly I might hurt or even kill my family and not even know it until I get home from being naked somewhere and I find my whole family clawed and bitten to death by me. I dont want to live knowing that I killed my entire family while I was a werewolf

  22. something happened to me I run faster I hear better I don’t know how well I control my anger but I don’t have a werewolf because I didn’t do anything like that could you help me please it would be best if you wrote a phone number here thank you for reading

  23. Hello my name is Olivia I would like to become a Werewolf tonight I love wolves there my favorite animals?

    1. I find it funny that people just say they are a werewolf but there thing is don’t be caught or trust humans with that information I mean don’t get me wrong I would love to be one but if that was possible they’d never tell you that simply because either they want to have power over everyone else or they don’t want humans hurting them or each other not knowing the true severity of the consanguineous plus adding a noob to there society increases there odds of getting them caught or it’s just not possible just saying it sucks but it’s reality

  24. “Born as a werewolf” I mean, over the years I’ve been getting more aggressive towards people I basically dislike and or absolutely hate humanity, when the only problem is from certain people, hell I even distrust everyone, I rarely trust people with anything, because I feel like people will do something with information, or my stuff, this one time I even dreamt about being in some kind of college dorm complex, and it looked a bit like the dream college I want to be in, I had some roommates, one got me angry, and I transformed into a werewolf, and before you say like the other website; “it just means you’re taking an addiction like gambling or something else” Yeah, no I don’t do any of that, I am just confused at this point-



  26. Oh wow! I can’t believe you idiots think werewolves, or even becoming a werewolf is a real thing. If you want to be cool, become a real life human that goes to school, gets a real job, and becomes a productive, normal, and sane member of society.

  27. Hello everyone. I’ve loved werewolves for a year and I’ll tell you why . While I was doing some homework it came to me like a flash. I absolutely wanted to be a werewolf at all costs My question for real werewolves is what is your form? I would prefer a detailed description
