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.

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

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???

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!

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?

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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

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??

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

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 ~

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.

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

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!!!

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.

#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.
