OriginsThe weretiger is a type of lycanthrope, most often female, that is similar to a normal tiger in its habitat. Its first 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 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.
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.

- 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.
