The Sims 4: Werewolf temperaments explained


Temperaments define where a werewolf’s Fury comes from. Inexperienced werewolves typically have one temperament. Seasoned werewolves have more than one temperament. As werewolves rank up, they pick up more temperaments.

Engaging in behavior that conflicts with your temperaments will increase Fury.

You cannot manually select the temperaments your werewolf will have. The game assigns them automatically based on your werewolf’s main traits and actions.

You can’t select temperaments, but you can do certain actions to influence the game’s decision.

There are 22 werewolf temperaments in The Sims 4 Werewolves. Out of these, 18 will appear naturally, and you’ll also get four unique temperaments when using the Lunar Howl ability to re-roll your temperaments.

As SimGuruMorgan explains:

Werewolves gain new temperaments as they level up and grow in power. They have an increased chance to get certain temperaments based on their Sim traits. Ex: Romantic -> ⬆️Frisky. You can reroll with the Lunar Howl ability if you aren’t feeling the ones you have.

Can I change my Sim’s werewolf temperaments?

To change your Sim’s werewolf temperaments, you need to unlock the Lunar Howl ability. You can then use it to do a special howl at night that will reset your Sim’s temperaments. Alternatively, you can use cheats to altern your Sim’s werewolf temperaments.

Here’s a break down of the werewolf temperaments available in The Sims 4: Werewolves.



Werewolves possessing the Prideful temperament feel a special pride about being a Werewolf. They don’t appreciate being made to feel otherwise. Aside from gaining Fury while embarrassed or uncomfortable, they also might take things a little too personally.



Frisky Werewolves can sometimes get a little hot under the collar when their beast within is looking for some company. Fury gains increase while feeling Flirty.

Wracked with Guilt


Werewolves with the Wracked with Guilt temperament gain extra Fury while sad. They might also feel a silver of remorse for their actions. Sometimes, the weight of this Werewolf curse is just too much to bear.

Wolf Brain


Werewolves that possess the Wolf Brain temperament often have trouble with intellectual or logical pursuits. Their wolf brain is constantly calling and they can’t focus properly.

Restless Animal


The Restless Animal temperament makes werewolves feel constrained while indoors. They need to go out in the woods and engage in werewolf activities. These werewolves will gain Fury if they don’t have anything fun to do.



The Territorial behavior makes werewolves want to claim what’s theirs as soon as possible. They go to great lengths to protect their territory. They also gain Fury when they’re near another werewolf’s territory.

Anti-Capitalist Canine


Werewolves with the Anti-Capitalist Canine often question societal norms. They gain additional Fury when forced to participate in the endless rat-race of werewolf society.

They have trouble adhering to pack values. This temperament goes hand-in-hand with the Lone Wolf aspiration.

Big Bad Wolf


Werewolves with the Big Bad Wolf temperament gain additional Fury while angry. They constantly feel the need to fight other werewolves to keep aggression down.

By the way, Greg, the lone wolf possesses the Big Bad Wolf temperament. That’s why all the Moonwood Mill townies warn you to stay away from him.

Night Wolf

Werwolves with the Nigh Wolf temperament are very active at night time. They are in their element under the Full Moon.

Hates Being Wet


The Hates Being Wet temperament makes werewolves absolutely hate water. They don’t take showers and stay inside when it rains. Werewolves with this temperament gain extra Fury when wet.

Stay away from showers, rain, lakes, and anything that’s wet.

Survival Instincts

A werewolf with the Survival Instincts temperament will gain extra Fury when Scared. Their behavior will quickly become irrational. If they don’t get rid of the Scared buff fast, they’ll turn.



Werewolves with the Carnivore temperament love raw meat. They enjoy eating raw-meat sandwiches and steaks.

For example, Lou Howell has the Carnivore temperament. He loves anything raw-meat.

Feels Outcasted

Werewolves with the Feels Outcasted temperament will gain extra Fury when they’re low on Social. They enjoy hanging out with other werewolves.

This temperament is incompatible with being a lone wolf.

Must Be Clean


Werewolves with the Must Be Clean temperament like taking long tongue-baths to clean their fur. They gain Fury with poor Hygiene.

Hungry Like the Wolf


Werewolves with the Hungry Like The Wolf temperament sometimes get extreme and sudden cravings. They’ll eat anything they can find, including pieces of furniture if they have the Voracious Hunger ability. They quickly gain Fury when Hungry.

Easily Excitable


The Easily Excitable temperament makes werewolves gain Fury while feeling Playful or doing fun activities such as playing games or watching TV. They hate getting Bored.

Grumpy Wolf


Werewolves with the Grumpy Wolf temperament need more sleep to feel fine. If you interrupt their sleep, they’ll get really angry.

Sensitive Hearing

Werewolves with the Sensitive Hearing temperament possess enhanced ears which means they can hear a lot more sounds than their fellow werewolves. Sometimes, the world can become a terrible cacophony. Loud noises cause Fury to rise in them.

The following temperaments are available only for werewolves that have reached the Apex level of being a werewolf.

Mark of the Night

Mark of the Forest
