The Weretiger is an enemy in the Castlevania series. It is a werebeast resembling a humanoid tiger.


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.

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