Appearances

Castlevania (N64) / Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness

The Were-Tiger is an anthropomorphic tiger warrior. Its large body is covered in orange and black fur, and it has a small white mane across its face. It is the largest and most powerful of all werebeast enemies in both games, albeit also slow and plodding.

It only moves towards the player and grabs him when he is close enough to crush him on the ground.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Unlike its previous appearance, it has no black stripes because it's simply a palette-swap of the Werejaguar, with which, according to its enemy list entry description, holds some sort of rivalry. It also shares the same attacks, but is distinguished by its ability to perform a violent uppercut that can propel the player into the air.

Gaining dominance on its soul, grants the Guts Upper ability, which allows Soma to perform an uppercut to his enemies.

Trivia

  • The Weretiger's enemy list entry description in Aria of Sorrow appears to make reference to Sagat, a character from the Street Fighter series, seeing as both share an uppercut move and a rivalry with a fellow pugilist; not to mention the common tiger motif.
    • His rivalry with the Werejaguar is a reference to Adon, another fighter from the series who uses a similar moveset and has a jaguar motif.
