Profile: Wolfang is silent and swift when hunting Predacons. He is an expert tracker, utilizing his exceptional olfactory sensors to sniff them out. Cloaked in his wolf mode, he stalks enemy Predacons like prey, and attacks at the moment of his greatest advantage. He strikes abruptly with  tenacity, not allowing his opponent any chance to retaliate. He will not combat more powerful adversaries, but will wait for reinforcements. Wolfang feels that teamwork is very important, especially during battle. He prefers the company of others, and has a close camaraderie with Snarl and B'Boom. He trusts and respects his commanders, and they trust his insight. He obeys orders to the letter, and is respected by his Maximal teammates. He has mapped numerous areas near the Predacons' bases of operations. He can use anything to his advantage, including trees, mountains, weather, and even unnatural occurrences. Wolfang never loses his composure, he is able to accomplish his objectives regardless of circumstances. He has also tracked and recorded the Predacon bases exits and emergency procedures, allowing the Maximals another slight advantage if they bring the battle to the Predacons. Wolfang's greatest asset in the eyes of his commanders is his loyalty.

Abilities: His optic (vision) and olfactory (scent) sensors are highly sophisticated.

Weaknesses: Wolfang may be easily outsmarted or trapped.

Bibliography of significant appearances:

*Beast Wars: The Gathering #1: (assumed) Stasis pod awakened and chronal phase realigned by Razorbeast.
*Beast Wars: The Gathering #2-4: Joins with Razorbeast's Maximals.

Other appearances: There have not been any other characters with the name Wolfang. However, this mold was used to make K-9, from 1997; and Max-B, a Japanese Beast Wars Second character.

Cartoon note: Wolfang was originally cast in the "lone wolf" role taken by Tigatron, however it was easier for the CGI team to make the first two additions (Tigatron and Blackarachnia) reworks of existing models (Cheetor and Tarantulas, respectively).

A pair of glowing eyes pierce the night like twin lasers scanning for prey.  Steel plated fangs glisten as the full moon rises.  A deep growl rumbles in the night air.   It is Wolfang, the warrior beast, searching for Predacon enemies!  Swift and agile, prefers to hunt  cloaked as an animal.  But quickly converts to robot mode for battle, when he can best utilize the secret attack launcher disguised as his tail!

  We always thought it was too bad we didn't get more characters in Beast Wars!  If you ever wondered what Wolfang might have looked like, then wonder no longer!  Thanks to the efforts and talent of Aaron Thomas , we can get a glimpse of what might have been!
