TV Werewolves Best Worst

Top TV Werewolves From Teen Wolf, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and More

Following last weekend’s ferocious fang-off (congrats to Buffy‘s Spike!), TVLine is continuing its month-long salute to small screen spookies with a tribute to the 13 top werewolves.

While this list isn’t quite as long as the last — ‘wolves are apparently an endangered species on TV — we assure you, there’s no shortage of fan-favorite characters to choose from.

From newcomers like Teen Wolf‘s baby beta Liam (d’aww!) to classic howlers like Buffy‘s Oz, we’ve curated a list of 13 lovable lycanthropes — and now it’s time for you to weigh in.

Browse our gallery of TV werewolves below, then vote for your favorite(s) and drop a comment: Any biggies we missed?

UPDATE (Oct. 16): After thousands of votes, Teen Wolf‘s Derek Hale has emerged the victor with 16 percent. Buffy‘s Oz claimed the No. 2 spot with 13 percent, while Teen Wolf‘s Scott McCall and True Blood‘s Alcide Herveaux are next with 11 percent each.


Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    A bunch of people from “ten wolf”? How bout the guy from the old “werewolf” TV show? He could take any of these guys.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Oz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I enjoy Seth Green when he was Scott Evil in the Austin Powers movies.

  3. Buffy characters should always win in my opinion, dont get me wrong I watch (and enjoy) the other shows but BTVS is a step above the rest!

  4. Eli says:

    I thought Dyson (lost Girl) might make the list.

  5. Dean says:

    Red riding hood isn’t on the list even though she’s a fairy tale character she technically is a werewolf.

  6. Marcie says:

    How about Klaus Mikaelson on Originals? He’s a hybrid.

    • kate says:

      They explained that with the vampire list last week which he made. Basically because he and Hayley are the only hybrids they split them. Klaus was technically a vampire first even if he activated the werewolf gene immediately. Hayley was a werewolf first and became a hybrid because of something Hope did to her in utero.

  7. Lea says:

    4 entries from Teen Wolf, but only one from Bitten? I would have voted for Clay.

  8. Red Snapper says:

    Oz will always be my favorite. I still remember watching that episode for the first time. Poor guy, just got bit by his baby cousin.

  9. Julian says:

    What about Peter Hale, Mason Lockwood, Luna (from True Blood), Jackson Jenner, etc, etc.

  10. Voted for everyone from TW except Scott, added in Peter Hale, and then tacked on Oz.

  11. Dude says:

    Alcide cause…well…look at him.

  12. I just have to say ... says:

    Alice Herveaux FTW

  13. Dominique says:

    the costume/make-up was ridiculous, but oz will always be my favorite <33

  14. Rainy says:

    Ethan Chandler!

  15. lrdslvrhnd says:

    Nothing from “Wolf Lake”? Some good portrayals there, IIRC. A case could certainly be made for Monroe from “Grimm”. And Eddie Munster definitely should’ve made THIS list.
    .
    Of this list, the only one I even care about in the slightest is Oz.

    • Maryann says:

      Wolf Lake represented an entire town of werewolves. Maybe the author of this article should save the comments from this week and last week to make better lists next year.

  16. Maryann says:

    You missed a whole bunch of good choices. Elena of Bitten runs with a whole pack of werewolves, including her pack leader and her lover. And how about Hayley’s husband from The Originals? They should all have been choices.

  17. Kim says:

    Love love the TV show Bitten!! Elena/Laura Vandervroot is a BadAss Werewolf!!

    You have some Great choices there -Peter from HG & Alcide from TB also hit high for the Males

  18. B says:

    Oz! He was and is the best tv werevolve! He’s witty funny and handsome

  19. Wendy Testaburger says:

    Where’s Josh Hartnett from “Penny Dreadful?”

  20. Rinti says:

    Tyler and Hayley!!

  21. Katie says:

    I loved Oz from Buffy, so I voted for him. He was such a sweet guy and really cool. What he had to deal with-yikes!

  22. ladyluck527 says:

    Where are Dyson from Lost Girl, Clay Danvers from Bitten, and Mason Lockwood from TVD?

  23. Cassie says:

    Hayley- The Originals

  24. felicia says:

    peter in hemlock for sure

  25. Sammy says:

    Gotta go with Oz, man. He was a werewolf on TV before it was cool to be a werewolf on TV.

  26. Voted for Derek Hale (my #1 pick) and added in Peter Hale (#2 pick)

    Why dont you all put the seasons past on Netflix ? I started watching Teen Wolf late so , I would like to see how he got bit and what he went through . On anything else it needs a credit card and im a minor , therefore I dont have one . You all should consider putting Teen Wolf on Nextflix . ☺😎
