Lykothop embodies all the traits that the people of old associated with those cursed by lycanthropy- wrath, hunger, and absolute terror. If werewolves personify the dark side of human nature, Lykothop personifies nature at its most brutal. Nothing is spared from his wrath, the beast practically an unstoppable force, a creature that feel no emotions past hatred and anger. The savage brute even seems to be immune to pain, ignoring horrendous wounds as if they were harmless scratches. The werebeast is in an eternal rage, only wanting to tear everything around him to shreds. He will attack anything and anyone, regardless of any factors in their favor. Unfortunately, he is plenty strong enough to back this fearlessness. Not only can he dish out frightening damage, he can take it too. Lykothop is the kaiju-equivalent to a tank, his sheer will more effective than any armor. In worldwide polls, Lykothop has been voted one of the world's most terrifying monsters, surpassing even the Nentuson beasts and devils like Ketos. Of all wicked giants, the G.A.K.F. takes the werebeast most seriously. He can't be reasoned with, he can't be driven into retreat, and he simply won't stop until he can no longer move. He is undoubtedly the most dangerous of all unaligned, rogue monsters.

-Jaws: Lykothop's long, powerful jaws can rip and tear savagely, capable of pulverizing flesh and splintering bones
-Talons: wickedly curved and mounted on the end of huge arms, Lykothop's claws are incredibly potent weapons; they can lay practically anything open in a single swipe, carving through almost any material
-Strength: Lykothop has freakish strength, rivaling the likes of Anorgon and Reaper; the more enraged his becomes, the more adrenaline rushed through his veins, empowering him drastically; this would devastate the body of most creatures, but Lykothop's incredible durability and healing rate prevent any major damage to his muscles; theoretically, his power has no limit, the rate at which it grows only slowing as he becomes more stimulated
-Endurance: Lykothop can take the most serve of blows and keep coming like it's nothing; he could literally have a limb ripped off and only respond by sinking his fangs into the perpetrator; not that attacks don't have a physical effect, he's just able to ignore it
-Moonlight: since being freed from Lykobo, Lykothop has found his might grows with the moon; the fuller the moon is, the more powerful he becomes; at the same time, he is severely weakened when the moon wanes
-Dense: Lykothop is incredibly heavy and dense; thought to be from his thick layer of muscle and insanely durable bones; due to his strength, this doesn't slow him down, but instead acts like armor, making his body hard to pierce
-Advanced Regeneration: Lykothop's rate of healing is incredibly high; minor cuts close within minutes and more serious injuries practically disappear after a few hours

-Lykothop will charged directly into any situation no matter what the circumstances; his insane endurance and strength usually let him get away with such foolishness though

Under the moonlight, a frightening change came over the loved Lykobo. The odd beast had gained a huge following through its curious and cowardly behavior. But now, it was changing into something horrible. The full moon somehow triggered a series of rapid genetic changes, totally rearranging Lykobo's DNA. The small, meek canine became a monster- Lykothop. The world was stunned. In response, the G.A.K.F. sent Reaper, the physically most powerful of their kaiju, to deal with the werebeast. Reaper dealt the savage creature a series of blows and wounds that would bring any other monster to its knees.

Lykothop simply delivered a devastating strike of his own.

Stunned, Reaper was left vulnerable. Lykothop mauled the monitor lizard, turning the mighty beast into a gory mess. But before the wolf could finish off the reptile, a blast of hellfire blow him off his feet.

Fenris had arrived.

The wolves stood off, both snarling and baying at each other. Then they clashed. The duel was short, but brutal. Both mammals were left bloody and bruised. Breaking off from the battle, Lykothop and Fenris circled one another in a deadly dance. Then a shocking thing happen. Instead of fighting again, the two hellish wolves came together and journeyed back to Fenris's den, side by side. Flanks brushing, the mammals swept into the fiery depth of the den...

The following morning, Lykobo emerged from Fenris's den. The world was shocked to see the Hellhound Queen had spared him after he reverted to his smaller, weaker form. The meek beast then found its own cave a shorts ways off. Every full moon since, Lykothop and Fenris have been together, either raising Hell as partners of destruction or denning as loving mates. Attempts have been made to destroy him as Lykobo, but Fenris always fends them off.

Then his mate gave birth to Skollarg. Lykobo took on the role of the loving, playful parent while Fenris taught the pup how to hunt and fight. When Lykothop emerged, he helped with these more useful lessons. And as he grew to be as bigger, like his mother before him the hellish beast spared his smaller father of his wrath.

Although there appeared to be genuine affection between he and his mother, the two often scuffled due to their fierceness. When Lykobo became Lykothop, he also joined in these skirmishes. Eventually, it became too much. Skollarg, now as or more powerful that his parents, departed to find his own home. Ironically, the demon chose the peak of Mt. Olympus- the palace of the gods in Greek mythology- as his home. He and his parents still interact though, traveling to the other's home or going raiding together on full moons.

While Fenris destroyed all G.A.K.F. attempts to capture them for Project Tartarus, Lykobo hid in his den.

One faithful night, Araad arrived at the lair of Fenris and Lykobo. With her Breath of Life, the Earth Dragoness separated the vicious Lykothop from its meek host. The tower werebeast quickly turned on a terrified Lykobo. Araad made to intercept, but she was beat to it. Fenris attacked the bigger monster viciously to defend Lykobo. As the two battled, Araad threw her Terra Blade down, spearing Lykothop. All at once, huge slabs of stone rose up from the ground, forming a small mountain over the raging werewolf, trapping him.

But not forever.

On quiet nights, the muffled clawing and baying of the furious giant could be heard through the crushing tomb of stone. And when Ullraldi and his allies struck out against the world, the wicked general Mesucos damaged Lykothop's mountain prison, weakening it enough where the savage beast would be free within hours. And when Lykothop finally did topple his tomb, he immediately sought out his former family. Arriving just as Fenris and Skollarg finished trapping the last of the ice warriors plaguing them, the furious werebeast attacked! Fenris and Skollarg met the moonlight-powered killer head-on while Lykobo fled from his dark side. Although the rampaging werebeast would have been unstoppable to most other giant, the two demonic hounds managed to take the upper hand. Konn Juntivi tried to interfere, but Knothor appeared to put the invader in his place. Bombarded by a barrage of fiery blast and inky missiles, Lykothop eventually fell, knocked out cold for the first time ever.

When he awoke, Lykothop was imprisoned in a new addition to the Giant's Gate- a volcanic crater dubbed Wolf's Den. Even with his mindless tenacity and freak endurance, the werebeast couldn't possibly cross the lava flows and molten pool separating him from freedom. He tried many times, but only ended up fleeing back to solid rock with new burns. So instead, he takes out his fury on cliff faces and boulders, howling madly as he smashed the porous rock. This draws in huge crowds, children and adults alike fascinated and terrified by the monstrous beast.
