First Appearance: Episode 089: Random Close Encounters of the Deadly Kind
Sprite: Werewolf (Final Fantasy, NES); "Crinos" form: Werewolf/Lynx (Final Fantasy III, NES; modified)
The Werewolves were the first enemies that the Light Warriors fought after their formation. Encountered in Imp Forest, they first appear as ordinary wolves, but can later transform into what Red Mage Statscowski calls their Crinos form. Werewolves are said to be near-invincible in this form.

As they are fought, Thief began by performing a backstab-surprise-critical attack on the wolves, but only succeeded in making them angrier. Fighter McWarrior is about to perform a move called the Tiger's Fang Strike before being stopped by Red Mage, who claims that only silver weapons can harm them; thus, he decides to strike the werewolves head-on, expecting that his comrades will follow up. They didn't, and Red Mage is gravely wounded. Refusing to cast white magic on himself (as that would decrease his versatility), he asks the other Light Warriors for a Potion, and is denied that wish, as the warriors are strapped for cash.

Meanwhile, the wolves transform into their powerful Crinos form, but begin bickering to one another. Noticing this distraction, Fighter decides that now was the time to attack them, but his sword can't damage them. One of the werewolves tosses Fighter back and then continues the argument. Noticing the stalemate, The Light Warriors decide to leave them to it and walk away to continue their quest, much to the dismay of Red Mage, as no experience is gained from the encounter.


First Apperance: Episode 518.5: So Very Dead
Sprite: Bugbear / Gold Bear (Final Fantasy III, NES; modified)
The yeti is the self-proclaimed ruler of the artic wastelands. His kin involves incestuous relationships with each other as there aren't many of them inhabiting the lands. The Dark Warriors slaughter them all eventually and use their warm, fleshy remains as sleeping cots for the night.
