9 Reasons Why Vampires Could Totally Win a Fight Against Werewolves

vvsw1. No one can ever agree on vampire powers, so a werewolf would be entering into a one hell of a gamble if he ever picked a fight with a vampire. It could do anything; transform into a tiger, or spew acid from its eye sockets.  So the first reason is: uncertainty!

2. Werewolves are werewolves for one night a month. Vampires are cold hard bloodsucking bastards for hundreds of years, every day, and all hours. Except maybe the daylight hours.

3. Vampires are smarter. It’s true, sorry, but werewolves are mostly created from the “let’s go investigate scary noise” horror movie stock or, “ignore the crazy gypsy woman” types. Vampires are created either by choice, or because they were just so damn sexy.

4. Vampires are faster; they retain human forms, and don’t become huge, ungainly half-man half-wolf creatures that have to re-learn how to walk. Animal reflexes are on the werewolves side, but supernatural speed, –nope.

trans5. Werewolves are usually crippled by a lengthy, painful transformation, giving a vampire ample time to smoke, check his laundry, eat a light dinner of blonde virgin, watch the latest episode of True Blood on HBO, come back after picking up his dry cleaning, and finish on the werewolf before he’s even finished growing a tail.

6. Vampires are more popular; they’re hot, and they look like gorgeous pale people, thus, they’re more likely to have human allies, willing to die for them. Werewolves are scruffy, un-hygienic looking guys, who might have one girlfriend that they end up killing off themselves.

7. It’s easier for vampires to blend in with humanity, giving them an edge when it comes to hiding, or using the element of surprise in a fight. Werewolves are huge, mutant dog people; they don’t really have the same thing going for them once they’ve transformed.

8. Vampires multiply faster; it takes one night for a vampire to turn like, a dozen or so people. It takes a whole month for a werewolf to turn someone, or at least for the effect to kick in.

White Winged Vampire bats Dan Riskin9. In the event that a vampire should have to flee, because the werewolf is fighting dirty, or ganging up on one vampire, then vampires can always shapeshift into something with wings, like these so-freaking-horrfiyingly-ugly-they’re-cute vampire bats. Then they can come back later and snuff the werewolf when he’s in the bathtub or something.

  1. Pingback: vampires


    1. I do give werewolves credit because they’re bigger and has better animal reflexes but a vampire would totaly cream them!!

  3. they both deserve plenty of respect,whether or not u prefer vampires or werewolves. They r both good fighters, and realy, mainly it just depends on how skilled the vampire or werewolf is.

  4. Your statement reflects remarkable insight Angel… and for that, hat’s off to you. The time-old feud raging between the two breeds is somewhat over-inflated by books, movies and the like. Although any real vampire or werewolf would enlighten you to the actuality that a feud does indeed exist, it is hardly as ghastly as it’s often portrayed to be.

    The two species also don’t simply brake into fight at the mere sight of one another as sometimes suggested, the battles are usually based on more than a mere identity distinction. If this was not the case, the battles between the species would have raged publicly far more often because, contrary to popular belief and even though they are not in a constant active state, werewolves are not entirely unskilled. As far as senses go, they are as proficient in identifying a vampire as vampires are in identifying them. So the argument made of vampires being able to hide from werewolves in crowds is not entirely accurate since the two species can sense each other from great distances.

    So as Angel said, both the species should be respected for their separate talents, skills, habits and mostly for their intelligence. Although they differ substantially in abilities, every single one is dependent on the influences of the strain it stems from for their strength, agility and attributes.

  5. Ok, it depends upon which type of werewolf your talking about. Vampires have many weaknesses as well. vamps obviously can’t go out in the day time, wolves can and that alone is a huge threat to all vamps, in some cases the wolves can transform freely every night and against their will on the night of the full moon. Vamps have to rely on human blood when the wolves can live off of any game not just human. And I think that the werewolves stand an equal chance against vampires.

  6. Not all werewolves have long transformation processes and they deffonatly can be attractive people as well. The werewolves that I’ve heard of weren’t the half-man looking creatures, but the full wolf form. I would follow any cute puppy versus a overly pale, cold, person that smells of corpses and blood.

    1. I agree, I’m a Sang myself and there are some damn attractive and well fought werewolves out there. One of my recent best friends is a werewolf and he’s one of the smartest people I know.

  7. In my opinion, vampires would have a slight advantege with speed, stregth, and stelth. Werewolves are infact skilled, very skilled in some ways. It would be very interesting to watch.

  8. 1. “Vampires are pale.” Wrong. Vampires of Middle- and Eastern European were red-faced or “rosy” and often fat.
    2. “Vampires can´t go out in sunlight.” Wrong again. In folklore and classic literature like Dracula and Carmilla vampires walked happily in sunlight. It was 1922 Nosferatu which added vampires-burn-in-the-sun-nonsense.


  10. Oh my dear friends yet have much to learn vampires would win for the fact they have more abilities then you know. Just cause your a wolf does not mean you move faster then a bat and it doesn’t make them smarter either. Werewolves are savages which makes them stupid therefore not smart the time you think of something we already thought our minds move quicker so therefore were steps ahead. You all do amuse me.

    1. A vampire isn’t just bat speed its supernatural speed and strength but a werewolf just has animal strength so I agree it is very amusing

  11. I’m a hybrid vamp, and one of my closest friends is a “werewolf”. There is no feud between us. If there’s a feud, it’s only in the movies.

  12. I respect vampires a lot and there is nothing wrong with them, a friend of mine is a “Vampire” and me and my sister are “Werewolves” so even if a vampire could win a fight against a werewolf it could also happen the other way around.

  13. I have to disagree on a few of these…
    #2- its 3 nights a month
    #3- human intelligence + animal intelligence
    #6- i thought we we were talking about fighting.. not a popularity contest
    #7- blend in with humanity? they only are in wolf form for “1 night a month” while vampires cant hide their fangs, pale skin, and red eyes

    I would also like to add a couple more things…
    werewolves travel in packs while vamps are loners
    vamps have more weaknesses
    a wolf could beat up a bat if it had to

    (when i say all these things, i dont mean to offend vampires)
    ps go werewolves!

  14. vampire and werewolves truly exist or not? but they exist or not both of them humans killer so i thought werewolves and vampire is not exist and i don’t care what reason vampire win fight against werewolves.

  15. Oh, I get so tired of these people claiming they are vampires/werewolfs and talking about some feuds. In pop culture ofcourse there is a feud, but in folklore, where both vampires and werewolfs originate from, they are very much the same. Blood drinking corpse, shapeshifter, both agents of satan, bla bla. A vampire unafected by some or other modern writer is as likely to turn into a wolf as they are to a bat. Even more popular transformation than bat, whitch is quite a modern thing, they are more likely to turn into a fog, or a plague of locusts, something in that style. Remember, medieval Europe had no idea about blood-drinking bats. The reason some kind of a vampire myth is present almost in every culture is becuse blood is the precious liquid of life, you lose too much of it and you die. Fear of losing the valuable blood transitioned into the belief of dead things that animate themselves by consuming the life of the living through blood. And the belief that vampires are most vulnerable during the day was not inspired by a movie, but by the dogmas of the church, like the witches, also servants of an ‘other’ god, had to burn in the purifying flames. And for the werewolfs, in the middle ages, they were mostly people who gained the ability to shift into a wolf through a dark pact or magic, or on the other hand, were animalistic man-beasts whitch didnt usually display any shapeshifting abilities. European tales are mostly church-influenced.

  16. well i am a wolf blood not a where wolf and i would totaly win a fight to a vampire beacuse one i would bite them and wait until its day two i have a pack and three i am much stronger then u think even tho i am 10 and a girl and u cant be both u have to be born on the other side of the world u have to be born wiff one black eye and one yellow eye and when u are 17 u move to texas and kill a human and if u are a wolf u have two sharp teeth on the top and bottom if u a vampire u have two sharp one sharp teeth on bottom and top

  17. I highly disagree with this:
    #1: Not all vampire have powers
    #2: Depending on the type of werewolf, some are permanent, some can turn whenever they want and some only turn on full moons.
    #3: Werewolves keep their human intelligence so it adds to their animal intelligence making them even smarter.
    #4: Some werewolves can easily restrain a vampire therefor he cannot run away.
    #5: Werewolves get used to it after the second transformation.
    #6: Seriously? Who cares if they got human allies? Or if they’re more popular?
    #7: Werewolves can easily stay in the forest and let the vampires burn at the sunlight.
    #8: Wrong! Only the higher rank of vampires get to turn humans into vampires.
    #9: Werewolves can kill a bat in one bite. Don’t care if vamps can turn into a bat. They’ll still kill it.

    -Werewolves rarely are alone while vampires are always alone
    -Werewolves got a few weaknesses while vampires have MANY
    -only One werewolf bite can kill a vampire while a hundred vampire bites wont kill a werewolf
    -Vampires CAN’T kill a werewolf unless they have a silver bullet with them. And that is most likely not to happen while werewolves can kill a vampire in one bite.

    Still think Vampires could win?

    1. I do think a werewolf would win but i’m going to have to disagree on some of these.
      1. It is only a myth that vampires burn in the sunlight.

      2. A vampire can not make others vampires by biting, same goes with werewolves.

      3. Vampires don’t turn into bats.

      4. There is only one werewolf weakness that might be cannon which is silver.

      5. A werewolf bite isn’t that lethal neither is a vampires.

      6. A werewolf can’t kill a vampire in one bite.

      1. Don’t Come In Here with that Twilight movies BULLSHIT!!!
        1. Vampires DO burn in sunlight! Dracula the Original Vampire happens to burn in sunlight, and his fellow vampires do the same!
        2. Both Vampire and Werewolves can turn others into their kind by biting if whomever they bit was left alive, due to an enzyme in their saliva that transforms them into the same beast of the night by whom they were bitten, its known as the “Mark of the Beast”
        3. Once again, The Original Vampire himself, Dracula transformed into a Bat frequently.
        4. The Main thing that can kill a Werewolf is shooting a Blessed Silver Bullet straight at the center of its heart.
        5. Werewolves happen to have very strong mandibles and canines, and they have extremely powerful jaw muscles and neck muscles. Their Bite is powerful enough to Crush and Ravage through a Vampire’s Neck, let alone a human neck, with ease. Werewolve Bites are very lethal.
        6. Given the chance, a werewolf can kill a vampire in one bite if it is inflicted to the neck that is.

      2. -“Its only myth that vampires burn in sunlight”
        Its all a myth my dear…rofl
        -“Vampire dont turn into bats”
        Really? u sure? have u watched/read anything about vampires other than twilight?
        -“a werewolf can’t kill a vampire in one bite”
        Go learn about werewolf first… only watching twilight wont make any sense to ur head now….

      3. Vampires are better, always were and always will be.
        Honestly, who would be dumb enough to aceppt demean themselves by acepting turning into a filthy dog?

  18. Actually if you figured out the truth of werewolves and vampires a werewolf would easily win.
    1. A werewolf can transform anytime they want.

    2. Vampires don’t transform into anything, they just grow fangs and a craving for human blood.

    3. Werewolves are just as smart as in wolf form as they are in human form.

    4. A werewolf transformation is actually pretty fast, it is just a man covered in black clouds then the black clouds disappear and boom, you got a werewolf.

    5. A werewolf is actually faster than a vampire because a vampire is just a human with fangs and a bit of strength, but werewolves are superhuman wolves than are fast and have a lot of strength.

    6. A werewolf would actually blend in easily by transforming into a TRUE wolf.

  19. When it comes to intelligence though vampires are often the more educated it really depends on age and how much time they have devoted to studying things. And just like with humans most Vampires aren’t soldiers or the military type for the species. The military type likely make up a vary small portion of the entire population. Sure Vampires can fight in groups similar to packs but that is a learned behavior for the purpose of survival. Unlike Werewolves who normally naturally fall into their packs rank structure like well wolves. Werewolves often hunt in packs and that’s how they prefer to fight battles. With werewolves the concept is that the pack is stronger than the sum of its parts. Ie Individual werewolves are as easily killable by a vampire as vice versa but the pack together provides even the weakest werewolf with protection.

    As to strength advantage in a fight between the two physical strength doesn’t really go to either of them. Don’t get me wrong werewolves are incredibly strong , fast and agile for their size. But vampires are also roughly 10x stronger than an apex human. Are much faster and agile relying more on speed than physical strength. Now when it comes to a fight a Vampire who has been well educated likely won’t get into a close quarters fight with a were wolf they will likely use long range firepower to kill their opponent . Because the objective isn’t food but rather to kill a rival.
    As to the real reason for the fighting between the two. This varies with several reasons being sighted throughout time. It could be that the vampire clan or family doesn’t like werewolves in general or vice versa. Or that one or the other did something to piss off the other one and vendettas die hard. Or on the small scale ie 1v1 it could be something more personal. Vampires don’t always kill humans you know. Some may like a specific human and something happen. Hell it could be a love interest that caused two of them from the separate species to go at each other. Ie the vampire took the werewolves girlfriend or the werewolf took the vampires. Just like with human society things happen.
    The biggest mistake Hollywood and pretty much everyone else has made is seeing Vampires and Werewolves as one dimensional creatures. When they aren’t that dissimilar from human society. Sure giant freaking wolf and super fast blood sucking vampires hunting humans make great movies . But that’s all they are movies. Both vampires and werewolves are much more complicated than just beast of the night hunting humans. Hell either of them could practically feed on any animal they want. What makes humans think they’re so special I wonder ?

  20. It’s like you e never even gotten into the lore. Werewolves have always been the stronger and faster than vampires in wolf form. And almost nothing of vampire abilities would put down a wolf unless they came to the fight knowing and preparing with weapons before hand. Obviously the fight would be both in they’re forms. Depending on what vampire lore you use if they even turn into a big man bat. If not there is just no way they can win unless as I stayed literally coming to battle with weapons to kill a werewolf.

    This page is absurd.

  21. When this subject came up on another site I picked vampires because of numbers, tactics and diversity of powers. However there are some things to consider with the werewolf and you shouldn’t count them out . First depending on which source you use werewolves are also very fast and do heal and don’t actually die. They come back on the next full moon ala Lon Chaney until the curse is lifted ….Now granted if you use the True Blood version the weres would get their ass handed to them but some versions of werewolves are juggernauts of powerful animal rage with at least some intelligence .. This is how I see it if you account for most versions in a kind of werewolf gestalt versus a vampire gestalt.. Werewolves are vicious pack fighters with sharp sense and instincts and would react better in surprise situations because of instinct ..Vampires are cold, intelligent and ruthless given to tactics and situational awareness rather than instinct not physical as strong but with a wider array of powers..I still give the edge to the Vamps but not by much 5.5 to 4.5 with the vamps winning with the vamps winning five times out right the weres winning four times out right and one ending up in a dead tie pun intended . If the werewolves are properly led or the vampires poorly led it could turn the werewolves way

  22. Only a newly turned wolf will take time to transform but an experienced and adult wolf won’t take time to change for instance take a look at teen wolf when Scott just newly became a wolf it took time and pain for him to transform but when he got used to it he can transform anytime anywhere without taking time and as for strength wolves are far stronger than vamps and in speed vamps are not to faster than wolves and wolves are also very intelligent it just their animal instinct that doesn’t make them think well they are just after the kill and rage
