There are a lot of theories about werewolves and pentagrams. Some say that you can spot a werewolf by seeing if they have the sign of a pentagram on their forehead or on the palms of their hands. However, because werewolves are very hairy creatures, even when in human form, this might be a little difficult to check. And who wants to get close enough to see? Another theory regarding werewolves and pentagrams is that werewolves can spot their next victim because it’s the victim that shows the sign of the pentagram on their forehead. However, this theory probably came mostly from the movie The Wolfman.
In this movie, Lon Chaney Jr. goes home to Talbot County before he turns into a werewolf. He walks into a shop and buys a neat looking cane that has a silver head of a werewolf at the top of the cane. After buying the cane, Lon Chaney Jr. turns into a werewolf and he can then see the pentagram symbol on future victim’s skin. This take on werewolf theory however was mostly the product of the movie writer’s imagination as it can be seen nowhere else in werewolf folklore (well, none that I can find anyway.)
It’s funny that the pentagram or pentacle symbols show up in so many tales and that it’s mostly used as a sign of evil or Satan worship. Actually, the pentagram has five points on it. These five points are supposed to represent elements of the Earth and spirituality. The five points actually represent: Earth, Wind, Fire, Water, and Spirit. The pentagram also shows up in many Biblical references and some of them even use this symbol in place of the cross.
So as far as werewolves and pentagrams go, there’s no other link to these two except for the movie The Wolfman, which I have to say, is a pretty creative and interesting twist to the many plays on the wolf.
yh so the pentagram is the real sign of the werewolf yh?
You all better watch out. WEREWOLVES R REAL. Trust me, I used to b 1. Now my girlfriend turned 2 a vampire. I am just giving a fair warning, some of us don’t like it if “people” joke about this stuff.
I HERE YOU BRETT. I AM 1 NOW. I AM A PUREBLOOD. MY FATHER IS A WEREWOLF. MY BEST FRIEND TURNED INTO A VAMPIRE. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. LITERALY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT 2 DO. MY DAD SAYS I SHOULD NOT BE FRIENDS WITH HER.
I have almost the exact same situation with my bestie Raine!!!!!!!!!!!!! She’s a Werewolf-Witch and her coven doesn’t want us being friends. I have no idea what to do. And i agree, this is NOT a joke.
The pentacle/pentagram shows up in these kinds of movies and myths because people associate the symbol with satan and evil. Which is actually a load of crap. This symbol is a pagan/wiccan symbol and is a symbol of the energy that one can create and the life forces of the universe. There is too much information to list here on the matter so do your homework and look into it :P
Some of us are very well aware of the meanings behind a pentacle, but in the Middle Ages when these myths came to be, they held different meaning.
I’m watching Werewolf in Washington and pentagram seen in next victim’s palm of her hand.
u shouldnt really post this online u know.
I know two werwolves, two vamps and a witch and i am also one…
i agree this stuff should never be posted online, oh and plus if your a werewolf, isn’t against pack rules tell a human bieng that your a werewolf, cause those are my pack’s rules.
Then you just broke the rules didn’t you? By revealing you have a pack you told all of us humans that you are a werewolf, therein breaking your own rule.
Actually the inverted pentagram, like you have, is a sign of the devil. It’s right side up ones for werewolves
Actually, it has multiple meanings. To satanists, an inverted pentagram represents Satan. But to pagans, an inverted pentagram represents male energies or hunting, or even protection.

Watching horror movies is one of my hobbies. That’s the only kind of knowledge lycanthropy I have,but I have been reading enough to know that people only think they are really wolves and some of them have been
If some one in life was walkin by and said he really was a were wolf id start laughin hard probally punch him , the pentagram is used in diferent ways , you ever think its a portal to do evil and get home quick , lol and when you put the pentagram on your palm its a waring of who you are , evil
can’t a werewolf be good :(
A werewolf is no joke the werewolves that u need to be very worried about are the lone wolves because their deadly. I wish I were a werewolf my friend is a werewolf a lone one. If you see on run unless you smell like a wolf. A neat trick is to put a mix of to worst smells on you or in a bottle. It will mask your sent to them.
Of course their real I wood know
Actually if one really wants to learn of lycans symbols and relation to them then need look know at those movies symbols shown in films but they need to look into Nordic runes..
Not at* not known at**
Hey there, witch here. I have a friend who is a werewolf and my coven wants me to not to be friends with her, but she’s been my bestie for like 5 years. How do I protect her from my family?
I’m also a werewolf, but I “can’t be associated with some one like her. I’m apart of the Mikaelson coven. My coven doesn’t know I’m doing this, hellllpppppp!
I didn’t know you were a Werewolf-Witch, Raine!
Don’t worry, will figure something out about this.
The first movie I was the pentagram was in American werewolf in London, my all time favorite werewolf movie…and I’ve always wondered what the exact significance was!!
