File:Troper-PitW 3465.jpg

In a world where roughly one out of every thousand people is a werewolf, were-cat, or some other were-beast, Peter Stubbe is a runt werewolf. Disdained by his father, ridiculed by his pack, he turned to a human, Sarah, for companionship. Unfortunately nobody told him Our Werewolves Are Different and can transmit lycanthropy sexually. Now Sarah turns into a gigantic werewolf with very large breasts... and Peter has to train her how to handle her new assets, while dodging a Clingy Jealous Girl and mysterious goons who nobody else notices... or else.

As anyone who has heard of Kris Overstreet should probably guess, Peter Is the Wolf has an NSFW version with graphic sex. However, it also has a SFW version. Overstreet writes, while Benjamin Rodriguez (also known as BAR-1) illustrates.

This comic provides examples of:

  • A/D-Cups Angst: Cherry Li, a were-racoon, is between flat and A in human form and up to D's in her wereform. Her self-esteem about her breast sizes goes down quite a bit when she sees Sarah go from small to her giant form.
  • Abusive Parents: Butch's father was already a lazy, redneck Jerkass. When we found out he was making Butch act like an Innocent Fanservice Girl and his own personal maid, it was disturbing but mostly ignored by the fanbase, cause Butch was kinda a jerk antagonist too -- and we're shown that most of the werewolf women are nudists when shapeshifted. Then we discover Gus has been sexually abusing her, shoving him right over the cliff and dragging Butch back.
    • Peter's dad also counts, to a lesser extent. He's not happy about having a runt for a son, and makes absolutely no effort to hide it. Of course, Peter's dad has other issues that make him almost sympathetic.
  • Animesque: the art style, especially in the early arch’s
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In the omake about a werewolf serving King Arthur, Sarah asks why Peter didn't talk about any dragons. Peter replied that everyone knows dragons don't exist. This coming from a man who knows wererats, werevixens, weretigers, werelions, werebears, werekitsunes, and weretakunis, and possibly vampires exist.
  • Attempted Rape: Butch with Peter; she backs out at the last possible moment.
  • Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny: Sarah admits her werewolf-self has the attention span of goldfish.
  • Author Appeal: Kris Overstreet famously has breast expansion, muscle growth (and matching decrease in intelligence), and oversized penis fetishes. All three are near-constant presences in the comic (and, well, pretty much anything else he has any involvement with).
  • Big Eater: The werewolves and probably other large weres as well. Consider a regular meal ordered for Sarah.
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: All weres, Peter specifically, benefit from this. The new Casanova Wannabe werelion is shocked and dismayed to find that Jean wasn't impressed with the size of his equipment (or was she...) after she lifted him off the ground and sneaked a peek. And then stole his loincloth for good measure.
  • Boobs of Steel: All the Zoothrope women (save the were-rat) gain enhanced secondary sex traits (larger breasts) while transformed, which corresponds with their enhanced physical powers quite nicely. Continuing to play the trope straight, Sarah is by far the most physically imposing Zoothrope woman and her petite form gains the most absurd Gag Boobs in the series when she transforms, too.
  • Brand X: A supporting character already wears Frag body spray. Peter wears a shirt logo distinctly similar to ICP's "Hatchet Man" when not wearing a shirt White Lightning Productions already sells.
  • City of Weirdos: Jean is caught out in public partially transformed. Passers-by just think she's a furry and ignore her.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Butch. Tragically, it's deeper than it looks.
  • Domestic Abuser: Gus Cramer is one - both emotionally and sexually to Butch.
  • Double Standard: Several. Early in the comic you see the local Werewolf convention -- all the men are wearing pants or loincloths. The women, with the sole exception of one of the main characters, are naked.
    • Here's what happened:Early on they used to post a "dirty" and a "clean" page. The werewolf convention was originally only in the "clean" section and was latter added to the "dirty" one because people were annoyed at having to check both sections to see all the updates. This is why there are two pages showing at the same time and why they sometimes share scenes.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Helgi "Hal" Halbjornsen, the werebear.
  • Freudian Excuse: Butch, who acts like a Social Darwinistic Jerkass near-rapist... just like her father. (Except replace "near-rapist" with just "rapist.")
  • Foreshadowing: In a rather quickly forgotten panel, Carla confronts Gus publicly about his sexual molestation and rape of Butch in this very early comic, causing him to back down. It completely paints the rest of the comic in a different light.
  • Gag Boobs: Sarah, when transformed. All a part of the proto-sentient, 11' tall werewolf bimbo package.
  • Gag Penis: Peter, who takes after his big bad dad in only that way.
    • To be specific, a recent comic has him being straddled by a werewolf girl who is around 6 - 7 feet tall. His erect penis reaches her chest his chin.
    • But it actually makes a twisted kind of sense if you think that he was supposed to be as big as Sarah. If not for a random gene kicking in and turning him into runt anyways. Also, he is of a MUCH more normal size in his human form.
  • Genius Bruiser: Hal Halbjornsen, a werebear. He is over 6' in human form and well over 12 feet from his butt to head. But despite his size, he is quite reserved and enjoys reading Locke, Rousseau, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein in his spare time.
  • Good Bad Girl: Jean, although wolves in the Peterverse are of the "open about sexuality" variety. For example, Jean's mother idly teases Jean's father in front of Jean saying that she idly wished she had taken Peter as a mate once she had found out her daughter had slept with him (and that his nickname of "two bats" isn't a pun) -- and warns Jean that she should probably not let Sarah know that Jean and Peter had sex in the past.
  • Good Ol' Boy: What Gus comes across as. In reality, not so much.
  • Groin Attack: "Taking a shot to the wolf nards... still hurts..."
  • Heroic Build: All males (except Peter) gain huge amounts of muscle when they transform...and are also endowed down there.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: Controlling transformations and animal instincts is a learned skill.
  • Hulk Out: Sarah's transformations. Hal too.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl:
    • Sarah, when in werewolf form. Doesn't help that she's so big, any clothing she was wearing at the time is destroyed.
    • Butch is a particularly effective aversion or Deconstruction: Her father insists (through violence) that Butch act like this in their home, since it's a "traditional werewolf" lifestyle. That was disturbing but almost ok -- after all, most of the weres shown are effectively nudists, after all. It's later shown that he's doing it to make it easier for him to possess her completely. And we mean, completely.
    • Peter's friend Jean is similar, having little qualms about walking around wearing a fishnet top and nothing else. Having a built in modesty-covering fur coat helps with things.
    • All of the werewolf women have elements of this -- we see a local pack gathering ("the Howl") at the start of the comic. All the men are shirtless but wearing loincloths and pants. All the girls except Butch (who has her own reasons]] for not doing so) are nude.
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting - Though training, herbal therapy, and time can provide a measure of control over their personal lycanthropy, it's still virtually impossible to remain human during the full moon.
  • Jerkass: More than a few of the cast.
  • Light Is Good: When Carla Goodwin, Jean's mom, comes to Butch after Butch tried to rape Peter and nearly got him killed Carla told Butch she has a choice of staying with her father, after revealing Carla knows Gus has raped Butch, or coming with Carla into protective custody. Cue a rainbow and tiny bird behind Carla. Butch lampshades this with "Yer shittin' me."
  • Magic Pants: Mostly averted.
    • Peter doesn't lose his clothes because, as a runt werewolf, he's about the same size in both forms. Other characters wear clothes specifically designed to fit or stretch for both forms. Sarah, on the other hand, destroys her clothes repeatedly and utterly, and other characters damage or destroy clothing in transformation.
    • Ditto Jean, who isn't exactly huge in were form -- it's shown her fishnet shirts and cut up blue jeans are that way cause they offer some wiggle room when she expands.
  • Marshmallow Hell:
  • Masquerade: Zoanthropes in general. Fortunately, common wisdom holds that anyone who believes in werewolves is insane.
  • Mate or Die: Peter has to keep Sarah under control as he's responsible for her -- and being outed as a werewolf is punishable by death. Werewolf Sarah is basically only controllable by Peter snogging her silly. (Wolfsbane also helps, but she's highly resistant.) Ergo -- Peter has to calm Sarah down or die once Werewolf Sarah is caught.
  • My Beloved Smother: Peter's father has so many issues due to his grandmother, who raised him, being a very overbearing, alpha personality who crushed his hopes and dreams of going to college and playing football out of some sort of misguided desire to protect the pack to control him like she couldn't control his father. Amusingly, he married a woman who is the exact same way, complete with Smug Snake grin and horrible justifications as she torments her own kid.
  • Narrator: Peter and Sarah narrate the openings to each part giving the readers a brief summary the story.
  • Nipple-and-Dimed: Often the only difference, if any, between an adult-version and clean-version page is the miraculous vanishing or concealment of nipples (among other things). If a page is just too pornographic to be saved by editing it will simply be removed. This, naturally, causes the reader to miss out on (small) parts of the plot.
  • Not What It Looks Like: Sarah bursts in on Butch's aborted attempt to rape Peter, and not knowing what happened to him, promptly breaks up with him.
  • One of Us: Both BAR-1 and Overstreet are devoted tropers, and make frequent mentions of various tropes on their discussion boards.
  • Only Sane Man: The role of Pack Alpha is delegated to these rare individuals within werewolf society, as evidenced by Jack and his predecessor.
  • Our Werebeasts Are Different: Features all kinds of werebeasts, although the predominant one remains werewolves. Whatever their animal type, their bite is not infectious: it is a trait inherited genetically.
  • Overly Long Gag: No, not Peter's unit - but is Goodwin Pack Alpha?
  • Power of Love: Jean realizes that Sarah does deeply love Peter as she didn't kill him after thinking he cheated on her, like an uncontrollable thrall should have.
  • Purely Aesthetic Glasses: Sarah has confessed to using them in high school. Without the lenses.
  • Rape as Drama: Butch's father has been raping her for years. This is on top of the things we already knew about their relationship.
  • Schedule Slip: Although new pages are supposed to come out once a week, it's not surprising for them to miss a week. Or two. (Readers of the strip have accepted that both Kris and BAR-1 have a lot on their plate and, since the strip generates little to no revenue, bitching for updates is not going to solve anything.)
  • Sexual Karma: Played with. Sarah slept with Peter as a final fling before college with the intent of dumping him afterwards... only to be infected with lycanthropy by it, have to give up on her dreams of going to a big school, and has to live with the boyfriend that she was ready to end it with.
  • Shout-Out: So many there's now a page for them.
  • Social Darwinist: Butch and her father. Tragically, it leads to Butch trying to express feelings of affection through this -- she's stronger than the boy she likes, so why can't she just take him? Taken to it's horrifying extreme in the most recent comics -- she kidnaps Peter, ties him up, and tries to rape him. However, she can't go through with it; see Can't Act Perverted Toward a Love Interest, above.
  • Super Senses: Part of the werewolf package. Unfortunately, smelling the results of child molestation doesn't count as evidence.
  • The Nose Knows: When Carla comes to Butch to confront her after the recent events, she points out that she's smelled Gus "on her" 3 times, but has no evidence.
  • Throw It In: The artist has a habit of "ad-libbing" character dialogue when finishing pages.
  • Transformation Comic
  • Troll: The Anatomy and French teachers' assignments.
  • Tsundere/Yandere: Butch. Yep, she's both a MAJOR Type A Tsundere (thanks to her home life) and a Type B Yandere.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: Butch again. She was always abusive towards Peter because Love Makes You Evil (and due to a general crappy home life) but actually likes him, when Sarah came into the picture and dashed her longstanding dream of Peter taking her away from her psychotic father, she started slipping into outright Yandere mode.
    • Averted with Jean, who just doesn't care.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • A minor example: Jean's father to Peter's mother, after they smugly announce they've already redecorated his room as a nursery for his replacement and he's going to have to literally live in a dog house outside, despite there being a perfectly good garage, and presumably a perfectly good couch nearby. Given the look his mother had explaining this in the previous page, as well as his father accidentally letting it slip that their (vastly improved) sex life being a factor as well, it's nice to see someone call her out on it.
    • Another minor one when Jean calls Sarah out and tells her that while her life has been hell the past few months, Peter has had it bad for years since he was a kid. And when he has finally found someone who respects him, he is kidnapped and almost raped. And after Sarah saves him, she thinks he was cheating on her and just leaves him in his own depression, back to two parents who have been putting him down for years.
  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: Although the creators have made a deliberate decision to not name or locate Peter's town, the artist draws certain landmarks which strongly suggest a Michigan locale...
