Lycanthropes (ライカンスロープ) are a race of werewolves from YGGDRASIL.


In the Web Novel, Ainz described a Lycanthrope as some sort of beast-man.


There are some monsters who were able to nullify attacks through their special qualities. Among them, lycanthropes and the like for instance, are considered nigh-invulnerable if the enemy did not use silver weapons against them.[1]

On the other hand, there are even werewolves like Lupusregina who has the ability to transform into a wolf. For instance, in the Web Novel, she could turn herself into a four-legged wolf.[2]
