It is possible to consult important information of the roles during a game by going to the "Composition" tab and by passing your mouse on the role in question.


There are 20 roles proposed on Wolfy : 3 Wolves, 3 Solitaries and 14 Villagers.

Werewolves' Camp

There are 3 roles in the Werewolves' party : Werewolf, Black Wolf and Talkative Wolf. Their objective is to eliminate all the innocent and solitary players.


Defeating the villagers is their objective. During that night, the Werewolves join together and vote on who should be eliminated. During the day, they cannot be unmasked.
The Werewolves are called once per night. They can discuss with other Wolves during their voting phase.
If the vote leads to a tie, a player dies randomly among those who were targeted in the tie.
No player will die if the Wolves don't target anyone.

Black Wolf

Defeating the villagers is his objective. During the night, he wakes up with all the other wolves. Once during the game, he can turn the chosen victim into a Werewolf.
The Black Wolf is a Werewolf with a supplementary power.
Once the victim has been chosen by the Werewolves, the Black Wolf has the possibility not to kill that person and to turn him into a Werewolf.
The infected player keeps his original role and powers, and adds the Werewolf's characteristics: he wakes up at night with the other wolves to vote, and wins the game by eliminating the entirety of the village.
The Seer cannot know that a person has been infected, which makes that player harder to identify and thus stronger.
However, the Mentalist and the Gravedigger take in account his wolf identity via their powers.
If at sunrise, it has not been proposed to the Black Wolf to infect a player even if no player has been infected yet, then the players can then conclude that there was no vote on the wolves' part, the Guard protected the Wolves' target, or the Red Riding Hood was the target.

Talkative Wolf

Defeating the Villagers is his objective. Every day, he receives a message indicating a word he needs to say before the sun sets, if he wishes to stay alive.
The Talkative Wolf is a Werewolf with an extra constraint.
He dies at the end of the day if he has not said his word.
The word in question can be placed in classic messages, mayor presentations, and accusations.
It can be camouflaged inside another word.
He has no word to place when the Dictator takes over control (unless the power is taken over in the second round, during the mayor's election).


There are 3 solitary roles : White Wolf, Mercenary and Sick Rat. Their objective is specific to their role.

White Wolf

His objective is to be the only survivor, he wakes up at night with the other Werewolves who thinks he's an ally.
One night out of two, he can eat another player of choice.
Starting the second night and every second night, the White Wolf has the possibility to eat a player or a Werewolf during the Werewolf's vote (after the Witch).
The White Wolf cannot be discovered by the villagers nor can he be discovered by the Wolves.
The power of the White Wolf is superior to the protection roles. A protected Guard, or the Red Riding Hood, are vulnerable to the White Wolf.


The first day, his objective is to eliminate the target given to him. If he succeeds, he instantly wins the game. Otherwise, he will become a villager.
The target's username is indicated at sunrise.
The first day, the Mercenary has the possibility to vote at the last second in the case of a tie on their target to influence the vote in his favor and instantly win the game.

Sick Rat

His goal is to infect all players. Each night, he can infect two players. He wins the game when all players are infected.
The contaminated players know the identity of all the other contaminated players.
The Sick Rat cannot contaminate himself.

Villager's Camp

There are 14 villager roles: Simple Villager, Seer, Witch, Little Girl, Hunter, Guard, Cupid, Mentalist, Necromancer, Gravedigger, Dictator, Red Riding Hood, Pyromancer and Heir. Their objective is to eliminate all the Wolves and Solitaries (except the mercenary).


Their objective is to defeat the Werewolves. His word is his only power of persuasion to eliminate them. Stay alert for hints, and identify the culprits.
In the case of an equality during the daily vote and if no mayor is elected, no player dies.
The votes of the Villagers can be decisive in the fight against the Werewolves.


Her goal is to defeat the werewolves. Each night, she can learn the role of a player she has chosen. She must help the villagers without being found out.

Copying the text indicating the role of the observed player is considered unfair gameplay.

The Witch can only use one potion every night. She can choose to do nothing.
She only has one of each potion.
Her potion overrides the Guard's protection.

He can auto-designate himself as a lover.
The two lovers can be in different party's. If a Wolf is coupled with a Villager, then they need to eliminate all the players to win the game.
The two lovers can discuss at any moment through a private chat that you can activate via the button on the left of where you write messages.
Copying the text indicating the information on your couple in the chat is considered as unfair gameplay.


His objective is to defeat the werewolves. He can perceive the outcome of the village's vote 30 seconds before it ends.
30 seconds before the voting ends, the Mentalist receives a message in the chat indicating if the vote is going well or not.
He can therefore determine if the majority vote targets a Werewolf or not, and influence the players to change their vote.
Copying the message indicating the outcome of the vote is considered as unfair gameplay.

The Heir
