appearance was in the original Dungeons & Dragons "white box" set from 1974, and later in the Monster Manual from 1977, eventually becoming a player character race in 1979.

In 1992, it finally became a player character class, with abilities like being able to speak with great cats, and magically roar to paralyze its enemies with fear.


The Weretiger first appeared in Castlevania (N64) and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, being the largest and most powerful of all werebeast enemies in both games, albeit also slow and plodding. 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.

A smaller version later reappeared in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, where it's simply a palette-swap of the Werejaguar, with which, according to its enemy list entry description, holds some sort of rivalry.

  • 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.
