Despair hangs over the tiny village as disappearances have become too numerous to ignore. Clues from the disappearances have all pointed to the same thing: Werewolves. Frightened, the Villagers must band together to find the werewolves among them before they're slaughtered one by one. But fear not Villagers because there is a hidden Seer among you!

-Original Introduction to Werewolf, first used by Linden and lasting through the first five games.

Some of the more noteworthy users on Comicfury regularly take part in a game called "Werewolf" (a version of Mafia) on the forums. Whilst the games were initially quite simple in terms of story (A line or two generally sufficed), later games have adopted full fledged story-lines, with drawn scenes (depending on the host).

The rules are pretty simple. There are Werewolves among the players. The players have to figure out who they are and lynch them before everyone dies.

During the day phase, the village chooses someone to lynch, and during the night, the wolves choose someone to nom. The game ends when either; the amount of wolves is equal or more than the amount of villagers OR the villagers successfully lynch every wolf.

There are also a number of roles.

  • Villager: Basic villager. No special abilities.
  • Werewolf: Basic Werewolf. Chooses someone to nom during the night.
  • Seer: The Seer originally had the power to check one player's role during the night phase, but, as of Game 7, received a nerf, meaning that they could only see the player's alliance (Due to the increasing number of roles). Has received a recent buff-up again and has a chance to talk to the Ghost as of Game 10, also keeping Game 9's 40% chance of survival from wolf attacks.
  • Guardian: Can choose a player to protect from the wolves during the night phase. Gained the abilities of Game 8's Mayor in 10.
  • Traitor: If the Seer chooses to see this player, they'll appear to be a wolf. The Traitor is a silent ability and the player is unaware it's him. As of Game 9, the Traitor is town-aligned unless the Wolves target the Traitor; then the Traitor becomes wolf-aligned.
  • Ghost: Added in Game 2. After dying, this player is able to choose one person to kill during the night phase before being removed from the game. Like the Traitor, they're unaware that they have this role until they die. Received a buff when communication between the Ghost and the Seer became officially legal in select circumstances. Received another Buff by being able to kill every third night-phase, instead of just one death.
  • Villager-V: Added in Game 7. This player's votes are counted twice. They're unaware that they have this role, however. Replaced by the Mayor in Game 9.
  • Werewolf-V: Added in Game 7. Like Villager-V, except they're on the wolf side. The two roles are supposed to balance each other out. Replaced by the Mayor in Game 9.
  • Naïve Seer: Added in Game 7. This player believes themselves to be the Seer, however, they see all players as villagers. Merged with the Medium in Game 8.
  • Hunter: Added in Game 7. When this player is lynched, they automatially kill the last player who voted for them. In Game 9, gained the ability to shoot anyone on the wagon, not just the last voter. Later (as the original version) became part of the new Mercenary role in Game 10.
  • Sheriff: Added in Game 7. Chooses a player to lock up during the night. This player cannot vote, but they're free to join in the discussion. Was merged with the Chemist of Game 8 in Game 9.
  • Bodyguard: Added in Game 7. A weaker version of the Guardian, in that, instead of defending the player they choose, they die instead.
  • Framer: Added in Game 7. Whilst not a werewolf, are on the wolf side. In exchange for not being nommed, they'll choose a player to frame each night. If the seer chooses to see this player, they'll appear to be a wolf. In Game 9, this role became the town-aligned Horrible Mystic. In Game 10, this role became the Wolf-Aligned version of the Vigilante.
  • Mayor: Added in Game 8. Can choose one person to protect from lynching the next day. In Game 9, instead had the previous games' -V ability of double-voting. In Game 16, the mayor gets voted upon each night which grants him/her double voting power the next day phase.
  • Chemist: Added in Game 8. Can poison one person during the night. That player will appear sick the next day and be unable to perform any role related actions during the night. Was merged with the Sheriff in Game 9.
  • Medium: Added in Game 8. As o Game 8, is the only player allowed to talk with the ghost. Merged with the Naive Seer in Game 9, but now the Seer has gained a weakened version of the Medium's ability in Game 10.
  • The Detective: Added in Game 9. Received clues from the crime scenes every night, indicating who the wolves would be. Merged with the Easter Bunny in Game 16.
  • The Alpha Werewolf: Added in Game 10. Default spokesperson for the wolves' kill. Can convert a villager, once, into a wolf, though it takes two night phases. In Game 16, it will take three nights to convert, and will also appear as innocent to the Seer.
  • The Fraud: Added in Game 10. A Werewolf who can fool the Seer into thinking they're town, until the ghost dies.
  • The Vigilante: Added in Game 10. A role with a choice between being town-aligned and wolf-aligned. As town, becomes the old version of the Guardian, as a Wolf becomes the Framer, with slight elements of the V role thrown in.
  • The Mercenary: Added in Game and gained the Hunter's original ability. In Game 12, was changed o a neutral role, with kill chance every night.
  • The Ghost Hunter: Game 11. Can remove the Ghost if the Ghost is o many villagers.
  • The Stalker Werewolf: Added in Game 12. Learns the role of a a player, but they are made aware that they were stalked.
  • The Meta-Gamer: Added in Game 12. Wins with the wolves, and when lynched, goes away for three days. Counts towards village total.
  • The Medic: Added in Game 12. Targets two players each night. If either of them are attacked, the medic saves them from death, allowing them to still vote. When the medic dies, however, so do the patients.
  • The Spy: Added in Game 12. If converted, the spy will maintain communication with the alpha, but will still be town-aligned.
  • The Idiot: Added in Game 12. Wants to get themselves lynched.
  • The Prodigy: Added in Game 14. Believes itself to be the Seer. Has a 40% chance of seeing their target's role. If it fails, it sees a random role
  • The Mimic: Added in Game 15. Mimics a role every night. Has 25% of failing to mimic dead roles
  • The Neighbor: Added in Game 16. Checks on someone each night and that person cannot perform their role action for that same night.
  • The Easter Bunny: Added in Game 16. Brings chocolate eggs to their target. If someone interacts with that target, the Easter Bunny gets a clue of their identity.
  • The Hapless Romantic: Added in Game 16. Can use their Love Potion on someone and can communicate with them privately.
  • The Scapegoat: Added in Game 16. Appears as a werewolf when lynched or forseen by the Seer.

Comicfury Werewolf contains examples of the following tropes

  • Acquitted Too Late: The fate of innocent villagers up for lynching after being accused of being a werewolf.
  • A God Am I: Ranger attempts this for Game 13.
  • Arch Enemy: Ranger was this to Ice come game 10.
    • The feeling is mutual. So, in game 11, Ranger tried to do the same to Ice.
  • Art Evolution: Kristy's art was so amazing in Game 10 that everyone wanted to die. It also saw the largest use of avatars being changed to their death scene, many coming from her drawings.
    • Ice also had this, even more so, because Ice had done art for Game 7, which Game 12 completely blew away.
      • Game 20 is being co-hosted by both Frosty and Kristy, and with only the intro post done it already looks amazing.
  • Author Existence Failure: SuperPie got injured on holiday vacation, and was unable to complete hosting Werewolf 11, which was abandoned.
  • Avenging the Villain: In game-verse, the characters are all offspring of their previous games selves. Ice pulled off an amazing case of this against Ranger in game 10, all as revenge for when he was killed in game 6.
  • Awesomeness By Analysis: Quite a few use analysis, however, Ranger is the most prominent example of it.
  • A Wizard Did It: Explanation for the Wolves in 7. And every game since then.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: Cyborg and Sarge were this in Game 12. It was awesome.
  • Backup From Otherworld: The ghost has the potential to do this.
  • Badass Abnormal: What happens when an analytical player gets a role like the Seer or Guardian.
  • Badass Normal: Any village which manages to lynch wolves without the assistance of the seer, counts or--even more impressively--without the ghost, without the guardian, without the...
    • Ranger has a reputation for being very good at Wolf Hunting, but his favorite role (for this very reason) is Villager, due to how expendable it makes him. Of course, he doesn't necessarily live up to said reputation, like, oh, say, in game 10...
  • Bat Deduction: Ranger's use of the word "logic" is...somewhat different from most players. He's well aware of it.
  • Beastess: Espeh was the Alpha Wolf in Game 10. Hot damn
  • Blatant Lies: "I'm not a wolf!" - Ranger, game 11.
    • After he had been lynched, mind you.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Everyone's death scenes by Xseraphiim in Game 19.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: Sarge and Cyborg died this way in Game 12.
  • Book Ends: Game 13 began and ended with Ranger being lynched.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Players naturally refer to the current and previous games all the time, calling them by name. (For example, "Odd game", "Game Seven", and "This game".) When the game runner translates that into the narration, this is the result.
    • The whole Metagamer role is an instance of this, as well - their difference is that they know it's all a game, and they can break the game's rules accordingly.
  • Brick Joke: "Oh my God. A wizard actually did do it. Ice, you chess master of plot, you!"--Jacob Gristwood basically summing up the end of game seven.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Plenty.
    • Ranger has occasionally been one.
  • Combat Medic: Kristy and (sort-of) Espeh in game 12 in an amazing epilogue.
  • Companion Cube: Ol' Lynchy is the trusty lynching tree that has been in all the games so far.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: Game 8. All three wolves were discovered and lynched in the first three days. Only two villagers died.
  • Deadpan Snarker: There have been a few, in the games.
    • To some extent, Jimi was one in Game 2.
  • Death by Genre Savviness: A lot of people, but most notably, Ranger_Brian_New.
  • Depending on the Writer: The werewolves have gone through various levels of strength. With some, the most mundane things are just as lethal as they are to humans. Other times, they have superhuman abilities and only die under special circumstances. The various towns have gone through this as well. Ol' Lynchy has been both a traditional lynching platform and the tree. The layout of the town frequently changes, and in every game, a player's appearance will be interpreted slightly differently.
  • Detect Evil: The seer's power.
  • Did Not See That Coming: Frequent for The Twist, particularly in games hosted by Ice.
    • Ranger is very frequently a victim of the trope. He's forgotten about certain roles existing (having at least twice forgotten about the vigilantes), and most recently, he forgot about the Alpha Wolf conversion when he was telling the town about his reads.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Ranger managed to figure out who both the wolves were in Game 6, but he was dead already and both wolves were lynched by coinflips. Ice still wanted revenge, so he purposefully messed with Ranger in Game 10. It worked beautifully.
  • Downer Ending: The end of Game IX. The town has finally broken the cycle and won an odd-numbered game, with just under half their number still alive. The Wizard comes in and kills them all, anyway.
  • Dumbass Has a Point / The Cuckoolander Was Right: edi-san mentioned in game 2 how the wolves would probably be defending him. The main person to defend him, that game? Tezcatlipoca.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Magravan in game 10 went out in style.
    • So did Jrade in Game 12.
  • Eat the Werewolf / I Ate What??: Milanor the Silver Wolf suggested making stew out of Matthew JA after he admitted to being to Alpha Wolf in Game 14. He followed though with it.
    • The wolves ate each other in Game 19.
  • Ending Fatigue: Game 13 had this, lasting over a month.
    • Game 14 had it worse, with the host ill, so only updating the game sporadically.
  • Enemy Mine: The end of game 12 saw both the remaining wolves AND villagers teaming up in order to try and kill the wizards in an epic fashion.
    • More notably is Kristy and Espeh, who actually manadged to 'win' by working together despite one being the medic and the other a werewolf.
  • Epic Fail: To Contrast Game 8's TV Tropes Made of Win Archive, Game 1 was this for the village. No town has ever managed to match a feat of such disasters since then: lynching the seer day one, who thought the guardian was a wolf, and lynching the seer's suspect the next day. While the town has lynched their seers and guardians before, this is the only instance of it being back to back, and one of the only times where the town lost because of it.
    • Ranger suffered a nasty case of this in Game 10. He helped lynch the ghost who became spiteful against the town and offed the Guardian, setting up a series of Disaster Dominoes to follow. His reads were way off and he ended up lynching the Seer, and suspecting the Sheriff. Who he thought was the sheriff was the converted wolf, and it wasn't until the final day that he got both Espeh and Ice as wolves, however, he not only made an error in the number of votes, but also miscalculated the deadline by one hour and failed to anticipate Kristy moving it up a further hour. The end result was that Salty was able to lynch Brad, the Sheriff, at the last moment, when Ranger had planned to be on to prevent that very occurrence from happening.
      • He did it again, this time as a wolf, hoping to make Ice suffer from this, instead. It almost worked, Ice was in the dark for most of the game, but it came crashing down on the last day, and it crashed HARD.
  • Evil Laugh: People have indulged in them from time to time.
  • Evil Duo: Espeh and Ice know each other in real life. Through amazing coincidence, the pair of them became the first two wolves in Game X and manipulated nearly everything behind the scenes.
    • Xseraphiim and Tylinn were this in Game 16. The two plotted against the village and managed to keep Superpie and Antihero from lynching each other until the end of the game.
  • Evil Gloating: And HOW. Game 10 had a whole epilogue devoted to this.
  • Face Heel Turn: Salty, in game 10, who went from an innocent little villager to being converted by the werewolves and helping them murder absolutely everyone that game.
    • And he was thought to have undergone it again, in game 11. The wolves had seriously considered Salty, but Ranger wanted revenge on all three, not just Ice.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: Ranger in Game 10. He was supposed to be saving the town, to lynch the wolves with his analysis. In the end, he was the main contributor to their demise. It was quite intentional on the wolves' part.
  • Fan Web Comics: Originally two, but there are Three, now. Tamdrin and meager run Wolfie Town. Ranger_Brian_New runs Wolf Hunt, a webcomic following the games more closely. Werewolf: The Game is a collection of the images used in the games to tell the story of games 7 and after that, enhanced with filler images. The main author/writer is Jimi Raffety, however, all the hosts of games 7 onward (currently, Ice the Frosty Cat, Jimi Raffety, Cyborg, and Kristy) are contributors.
    • Wolf Hunt also has a Spin-Off, now, called Spirit of the Analyst, focusing on Ranger alone, and all his behind-the-scenes work.
    • There's also Fun and Games, where the most common players of the game are forced to play a version with higher stakes.
  • Fictional Political Party: Skrael (who is mayor) holds a one-woman re-election campaign in game IX. It is completely ineffectual, as the Mayor role is removed in game X.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Espeh joined as a new player in game 10. Guess who got the role of the alpha werewolf?
    • From the viewpoint of the wolves, Tres was this in game 11.
  • Fun with Acronyms: "Ranger" actually stands for "Random Analytical New Guy Explaining, Rambling". The rest of his name: "Brains Really Interpret All...Nevermind." And the New: "Never Explain Wizards".
  • Gambit Pileup: A consequence of games increasingly being filled with players who play by analysis is that they often plan ahead of time. This is often the result.
  • Game Face: In the event of a werewolf victory, said wolves will transform in public in order to kill the remaining villagers off just for the fun of it.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Quite common from the Werewolves, after they have been revealed (be it lynch or victory).
  • Heel Face Door Slam: Inverted: The traitor has been lynched in every game since it actually would be converted into a wolf. Before that, the traitor was still killed/lynched in almost every game as well.
  • Heroic BSOD: A few have been suffered throughout the game.
    • One of the lesser-known ones was when Ranger completely shut down due to his inability to find SuperPie by analysis.
      • A more well-known example from Ranger would be his death scene along with the rest of the town in the epilogue during game 10. He backed up from the wolf, but he was almost completely speechless and didn't fight back.
  • Hidden Villain: Nobody actually knows who the wolves are for sure bar themselves until either their deaths or the end of the game.
  • Ho Yay: Orangelink and Sleepy were the lovers in Game 19 with the former as the Hapless Romantic. The flashback scene in which Sprite kills Dealer in the epilogue may have implied rape, but Word of God claims that it's not.
  • Idiot Ball: Invoked many times.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Ranger realized this in Game 12, that what he wanted most was for his analysis to not be disregarded upon his death, but for it to not be followed like a holy scripture, for it to be no different than any other player. He has a strong hatred for people sheeping to him, as that creates the reputation that he has an influence he'd rather not have.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: The wolves occasionally eat their own kind in Game 19.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Happened to both Hedge and BlackMageBrad via the means of a cliff in game seven.
  • Improvised Weapon: Several death scenes utilize this, mainly for lynching.
    • "I... just... I'm so very confused... I mean, what possible reason do you have for thinking; "Oh, hey, the werewolves are coming. I'll just grab this here bowl of custard to defend myself with..." WHY IS IT SO?!?!"--Antihero, on Sarge using Custard as a weapon.
  • It Will Never Catch On: In Game 1, Tobar mentioned that realistically, they should throw the suspects in jail and see if they turn into a wolf. Linden said it would be too logical for simple villagers. Now, games have a Sheriff (which does exactly that) and multiple players operate logically.
    • In game 2, edi asked if the Guardian protected people from being lynched as well. Answer: no, definitely not. Now, in game 10? It can.
  • Just for Pun: 1337Salty's name frequently results in this when the wolves kill him.
    • Jnvn uploaded a new avatar after a game where he had killed Salty. In Salty's death, a sodium deficiency was mentioned. When Jnvn was lynched, he had salt stuffed down his mouth. Jnvn used that image, but added a few words to it: A-Salt-ed.
    • Jacob Gristwood tends to fill this role a good deal CSI style, and has for some time.
  • Kill'Em All: Used in Game 19. Twice.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: When Ranger was a new player, he bragged about his skills, how he was often right, in order to get the town to follow him, wanting the town to follow him. It worked... too well. Now, he holds an influence over the town he doesn't want to have, but can do nothing to get rid of it, despite his attempts to.
    • Not helped by the fact that Ranger defends to the death (literally) his town reads which he strongly advises not to lynch.
      • Ranger facepalmed in Game 12 after he had an Oh Crap Dawning Realization: He had said to protect Magravan because he knew Magravan wasn't a wolf and was a darn-good player. After he died--too late to give the warning--he realized Magravan made the perfect convert.
  • Locked Room Mystery: Jacob Gristwood is found to be in one of these upon his death in Game 7. The solution was not presented.
  • Mercy Kill: Done by the wolves for Skrael in game 10, who was having to leave the game and was disheartened she wouldn't get a death scene.
  • More Deadly Than the Male: Game 10 brought about the first instance of the Alpha Werewolf, in charge of the other wolves. The first person to take this mantle was the female player Espeh, with two male underlings.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: The villagers solution to deal with the werewolf problem is to systematically lynch people until they get their guy.
    • This technically also applies for the Wolves. They can't just transform in front of the whole village and kill them all; they can only kill one per night.
    • The Wizard relies on this for offing the winners, be it town or wolf.
  • My Death Is Just the Beginning: In Game 11 Espeh knowingly posed as the seer with the intention that if she were killed, the REAL seer would be alive to pinpoint the suspects as guilty. It worked.
    • This is one of the traits the Ghost possesses.
    • Ranger did this in Game 9, too.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Common reaction to lynching roles like the Seer and Guardian. Has been known to occur other times, too.
    • Fingerwitch when lynched as the hunter shotgunned Luke; the flavor suggested this.
    • Ranger had a quite bad case of this in Game 10. Ice, of course, was the main reason Ranger could live to regret his actions.
  • My Greatest Failure: Ranger considered Game 6 to be his. He got lynched, and--while he did manage to find both wolves--he was dead at the time, and was mostly off while he was alive. Key word here is "considered", as in, past tense. Game 10 has since replaced 6 by quite some bit.
  • Mysterious Protector: The Guardian.
    • The Noble Vigilante serves this function as well.
  • Name's the Same: Jacob Gristwood really shouldn't play a game where the goal is to lynch werewolves and people refer to him only as his first name. It can...create some links...
  • Nice Hat: Kristy had one at the end of Game Seven.
    • In a Continuity Nod, Kristy gave the Sheriff, BlackMageBrad, a nearly-identical hat in Game Ten, too.
    • There were many Nice Hats in Game 12.
  • Not So Different: Applies to multiple conflicts in the game. Ranger has made it a habit to point out the irony in how many players have similarities to him that can get them into trouble or are ignored.
  • Older Than They Think: Ol' Lynchy was actually mentioned in its current form (a tree) as far back as game 2 (though not by name), when Jimi mentioned a necklace made out of rope, attached to a tree.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Werewolves that change everyday, are controlled by wizards & only kill, not infect? Totally not Jacob
  • Playing Drunk: Antihero, starting with his mention of drinking himself to sleep with whiskey in game 6, has become known as the town drunk. (Well, it's been mentioned in every game since, at least.)
  • Powder Keg Crowd: A popular tactic is to bandwagon onto voting for one player. It's rare that the vote will be swung once this happens.
    • One example of it BEING swung is the first lynch in werewolf XIV, Where everyone voted for Matthew JA, most retracted thier votes, then they swung to One Can Of Sprite.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: The motive provided for the wizards antics is to gather Human Souls for his Black Magic
  • Pride: Ice and Ranger have both admitted they have it, quite badly. It has repeatedly almost cost them both the game.
  • Pride Before a Fall: Ranger suffered this, very badly, in Game 11.
  • Red Herring: The Traitor is technically town-aligned, but shows up as a wolf to investigations. As of Game 9, however, there is more legitimate reason to lynch them, regardless.
    • Salty was one of these in Game 11. He was considered to be a converted wolf, again, and it made a lot of sense--in fact, the wolves had seriously considered doing just that. But in the end, they went with Biophysicist.
    • Speaking of Game 11, Espeh was one of these for the wolves when they were hunting for the Seer. Worse, after Espeh died, the suspicion was replaced with Jimi. Whoops.
  • Retcon: "Ol’ Lynchy had been with them for generations. It had helped them solve all of their problems. There were rumours of him being replaced with a set of gallows at one point, but the very idea was ludicrous."
  • Revenge: The main reason behind the wolves' actions in Game 10. Ranger beat Ice in Game 6, so Ice--in perhaps one of the most epic cases of this trope--Curb-Stomped Ranger in Game 10.
    • Deliberately repeated in game 11, with Ranger, this time, against Ice.
  • Revenge Before Reason: A few cases have existed throughout the games. Shaggers voted Antihero in Game 5, for their standing grudge. Justified, given that Shaggers was a wolf. Jimi voted for Tobar in Game 7 for revenge for Game Two. And, most recently, Ice specifically manipulated circumstances to get Perfect Revenge on Ranger in Game 10. It still worked, but it almost backfired on him.
    • And in a more fitting example of this trope, Ranger tried to do the exact same thing as Ice did. And it almost ...worked. It backfired, like Ice's gambit almost did, and Ranger got lynched because of it.
    • After her conversion in Game 16, Xseraphiim exacts her four-way revenge on Frosty, Onecanofsprite, Orangelink, and Spinnerlink all for various reasons in a game that Magravan hosted. It almost did not go as planned. She wasn't satisfied after she died in Game 17, to which she wrote her imfamous death scene of Onecanofsprite in a terrifyingly nightmarish and gruesome fashion.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Ranger's logic is often seen as wrong, but he's gained a reputation for being right often.
  • Rival Turned Evil: Sort-of. Ranger had been known in previous games to be an analytical villager, and also the rival of Ice. When Game 11 came around, Ranger for the first time was a Werewolf.
  • Rule of Funny: In the first game phase of game 13, Ranger (the host) was chosen to be lynched. The Ranger that got lynched was really an illusion made out of frogs.
  • Say It with Hearts: Xseraphiim takes this fur☆ther using☣ other symbols when Game☠16 ended~♥
  • Schedule Slip: Ranger being Ranger, he suffered very frequently from this. Often, situations arose where he could choose to end the phase early or end it late--due to his personal experience, he has forbidden himself from doing the former.
    • However, now that there are less night-action roles, he's inclined to end the night as soon as all actions are in.
  • Screw Destiny: Ranger, in particular, has this attitude on odd-numbered games. And in game IX, he finally succeeded.
  • Secret Identity: The entire premise of the game is that the werewolves keep theirs hidden.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Most famously done by Tezcatlipoca. Others have indulged themselves from time to time as well.
  • Spanner in the Works: Four in Game 10, against two different people. Sarge had a guilty against Espeh, throwing a wrench in Ice's plans. Ranger managed to nail Ice and Espeh on the last day, making town victory a real possibility. However, Ranger miscalculated the time of the deadline due to Daylight Savings Time, in addition to Kristy moving the deadline forward one hour, meaning he was actually two hours late. This gave Salty plenty of time to finish the game in the Wolves' favor.
    • Someone's becoming a frequent victim of this. Ranger had Game 11 pretty much as a sealed deal, until the last day, where the seer, tres, made her move, having worked with Espeh to out-gambit Ranger.
  • Spirit Advisor: Rules forbid the dead from giving game information to the living, however, that doesn't stop them from commenting. The Ghost can technically fill this role, as there's never been a rule against talking to the Ghost, though it became restricted to the Medium in game 8 and different Seers in games 9 & 10.
    • Ranger is normally among these, for he continues his analysis after death. In a cruel bit of irony, he was alive towards the end of Game 10, watching the other dead players who knew when he himself had his doubts. Turns out this was intentional. Ice wanted revenge against Ranger in Game 6, who figured him out well before he was lynched.
      • In Game 11, Ranger was most certainly not a spirit advisor, what, with him being a wolf and all...
      • Still didn't stop him from trying, though! Much to the annoyance of the remaining players, of course.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: By day, the werewolves are just like any other villagers. But by night...
  • Spin-Off: Of Wolf Hunt--Ranger created a Poem, Spirit of the Analyst, which he intended to make a full-blown short story. Instead, he decided it'd be best as its own webcomic.
  • Taking You with Me: Jrade attempted one in game 12, to no avail - but succeeded in looking cool while he died.
  • Tempting Fate: Done plenty of times.
    • "And Ranger's gone in the first round? We'll be done in 5 pages!" -1337Salty, page 13, after the end of Day 1. 17 pages later...
  • The Chessmaster: Ranger developed a game-breaking strategy in Game nine by coordinating the town roles. In general, Ranger's analysis sometimes leads to this in games, and one of the most fun moments for Ranger was when he entered a mental battle against Ice in Game 6.
    • He had another against the same person, Ice in Game 10. It did not go well.
    • Ice Out-Gambitted Ranger in Game 10, having Chessmastered him the entire time, for revenge in Game 6. Ranger considers Ice to at least be his equal.
    • Ranger pulled it off, again. This time, however, it wasn't as a member of the town. He was on his way to defeating Ice as a wolf, but at the last minute, was defeated by yet again being Out-Gambitted, once again thanks mainly to a new player unheard of before, helping Ice.
    • Game 12 could arguably firmly put Espeh into this position given her being the one to call Magravan's conversion as the Mercenary, a feat which would later proove to more or less near win the game for the wolves along with feats in game 10 and 11 of her team-up with Ice but more notably in Game 11, her tricking not only the wolves but ice himself into thinking she was the seer so the REAL seer would be left alive and firmly able to pinpoint the wolves. It worked brilliantly.
    • Game 12 was more Magravan's, given that he got Ranger and Matthew JA lynched, forced the wolves to sacrifice Tres and then directed many of the Wolves' moves after his conversion. While doing so, he also worked the Villagers to make sure that they didn't lynch a wolf or the Ghost (the one threat who could bypass his lynch kill) and successfully survived to the end. Stabbing the Alpha when he was village aligned and the Sheriff post conversion didn't hurt either.
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: Sometimes literally with the "Hunter" role, but a more accurate fitting of this Trope would be the Mercenary in Game 10, hunting wolves and getting killed by them.
    • Still fits the literal definition, in a Continuity Nod, because the Mercenary inherited the Hunter's ability to kill the last person on their wagon.
    • Technically, this can apply to anytime a wolf is lynched.
    • If you consider a pro-town player to be by definition a werewolf hunter, then this can also apply to any time a player is killed by them. In this situation, it can occasionally be inverted when someone known for being a wolf-hunter not a wolf actually receives a wolf-role. Like Ranger did in game 11.
  • The Jailer: The role of the sheriff.
  • The Mole: The roll of the fraud was basically this.
    • Ranger, ironically as this very role, used the lynch of the corrupt vigilante to his advantage, becoming this in game 11, where he managed to learn most of the power roles due to his favorable situation.
      • Key word, however, being "most". He missed one, and that one role made quite the huge difference...
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Pretty common rivalries have developed over the games.
    • Most famous would be Ranger and Ice, but they are by far not alone.
  • The Reveal: After an individuals death, it's announced what role they were assigned to play.
  • The Virus: Game 9 brings in some traditional werewolf lore, with this becoming a real possibility for those who survive a werewolf attack. They could be allies one day, and then the next...
  • They Died Because of You: Played to a T by Ranger in game 10. His analysis was, as always, a strong factor in the game's direction. It was just unfortunate that he himself was being played all along by the werewolves, whom he'd gone out of his way to protect in game therefore helping to kill off a large part of the village in a roundabout way. While Ranger was able to figure out two of the three wolves before the end of the game, he made a series of unfortunate small miscalculations which ended up letting the wolves kill the Sheriff, Brad.
    • It looked like Game 11 was heading this way as well, initially with Ice as the victim, but it was later reversed, to yet again be Ranger, whose actions lead to all of his wolf buddies being mostly exposed, meaning that the town would likely have had four back-to-back werewolf lynches for the win.
  • They Look Just Like Everyone Else: There is no way to tell who is a werewolf and who is a villager during the day phase from face value alone.
  • Think Nothing of It: Ranger insists that people take this attitude towards his analysis when it's right, because he knows he's far from perfect. Ranger semi-thanked Ice for quite nicely proving this point very well in Game 10.
  • This Was His True Form: Subverted. Upon death, werewolves revert from humans to their wolf forms, not the opposite.
  • Tonight Someone Dies: Pretty much every night/day in the village.
  • Unknown Rival: Has happened from time to time. Any Werewolf is technically this, after all.
    • Most famously would be Ice in Game 6 eluding Ranger... until Ranger died, at least.
      • However, Ice bit back in Game 10, once again fulfilling this role.
      • And yet again, this happened in Game 11, only this time inverted with Ranger as the wolf!
  • Unwitting Pawn: Ranger, in Game 10, fell right into Ice's hands until the last day.
    • In a cruel twist of fate, Ice was this until the last day in Game 11, but instead, Ranger was yet again Out-Gambitted and fell sucker to tres working with Espeh.
  • Villainous BSOD: It wasn't made public, but when Ice was jailed on the final day of Game X, He and Espeh pretty much gave up all hope and had resigned themselves to their fate. They'd even arranged to skip the next two phases so they could die together (whilst taking Ranger out, out of spite). Then Ranger unvoted...
    • Averted in Game 11. The wolves had two potential-BSOD-moments. The first is when Ice PM'd Ranger and said that Kristy was a wolf. Ranger told the wolves that it could work out in their advantage. It did. The second time is when Ice nailed the original wolf team--Ranger included, when Ice had consistently been Ranger's ally for most of the game. Once again, Ranger insisted that it wasn't over until it was over, that they had a fighting chance, and were actually in a relatively-good position, all things considered.
  • Wall of Text: While others are guilty of this, Ranger is the undisputed champion of this trope. It's gotten so bad that someone was unnerved when his posts were short.
    • Ranger, however, is not amused by this, knowing nobody reads his wall-posts and has since cut down...when he's not in danger of being lynched.
      • (Which he always is.)
  • Wham! Episode: Game 19 pulls this off when Orangelink and Sleepy were killed off in one of the night phases. It then turns out that Sleepy was the target for conversion, but it was too late when the Alpha targeted Orangelink to be killed, but Sleepy kills him instead and then himself.
  • What Could Have Been: There were many ways Game 11 could have ended. SuperPie's injury preventing him from hosting means that people can only speculate.
  • Who's Laughing Now?: Ice in Game 10 got his revenge against Ranger from Game 6.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: This is typically how Magravan is known for playing.
    • Because of this, what he says may be more twisted than what it seems...
  • Worthy Opponent: Ranger has expressed considering Ice his. Super Pie also managed to completely stump Ranger for most of Game 7, even when Ranger was dead and had information from beyond the grave.
    • Whether it still holds true or not (Ice has gotten better), Ice considered Ranger to be one in Game 6. So much so, that when Ice was a wolf again in Game 10, he went out of his way to make sure Ranger was utterly and completely humiliated.
  • You Are Too Late: Much to Ranger's disappointment, it turned out that he was wrong about the deadline, and came only after the game had ended, due to DLST and Kristy moving the deadline. He was not amused.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Odd games have always been Werewolf victories, Even games have always been town victories. Ranger_Brian_New noticed this in game six, and had no objection, being town. In seven, however, he screamed, "BREAK THE CYCLE, BREAK THE CYCLE!" It didn't work.. But then, the cycle was broken; Game 9 was won by the town. To restore balance, Game 10 was won by the wolves.
    • Espeh has been a werewolf all but one of the games she's played, gaining her the nickname of 'werewolf queen' and 'damned wolf'.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: In game seven, the wolves decided to kill off their own traitor after they figured he wasn't exactly too useful to them anymore. Was even quoted in the death scene.
  • You Never Learn: Ranger called Ice the Frosty Cat town while alive in Game 6. While he eventually got it right and identified Ice as a wolf, he was already dead by that time. Come Game 10, he made pretty much the exact same mistake, only this time, Ice was more prepared and able to exploit Ranger. While Ranger figured it out on the last day, by then, it was already too late.
    • Both Ranger and Ice admitting they have Pride could qualify.
