Werewolves (which can also be called a Wolf Man or Lypuston) are a common Castlevania Were Beast foe. This isn’t surprising; mythologically, werewolves and vampires are closely related, and some cultures consider them the same manner of creature. An aversion to silver is a trait common to both werewolves and vampires, and both are creatures cursed to roam the night in search of innocent victims to sate their hunger. The victim of a vampire or werewolf becomes one him/herself. Death is the only sure release from the curse, as seen in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. Once defeated by Richter, the werewolf (sometimes dubbed Lypuston) transforms back into an ordinary man before expiring. One Playable Werewolf is Cornell fromCastlevania: Legacy of Darkness and Castlevania: Judgment.

Wer is a 2013 American horror film directed by William Brent Bell. The film stars A.J. Cook as a defense attorney that discovers that her client might be a werewolf.

Plans for Wer were initially announced in January 2012 during an interview with Dread Central, when Bell and Peterman stated that they had been working on a werewolf-themed project for the past ten months. The two initially planned to begin production on the film in Romania during the month of April, and that it would be a “faux-documentary style project”
