With a body of chrome-like metal with blue accents, the Wirewolf is a very noticeable creature. It can leap and bound on all fours or stand upright on its hind legs. Its claws are razor sharp, and its tail tapers off into an equally sharp point, and its teeth can chew through metal with almost no effort. It has luminous, bright red eyes and azure "facial hair" upon its snarling muzzle.
It has blue fins along its back (a stylized representation of the ridge of hair down a wolf's back), and its voice is uniquely dual-toned with mechanical and organic bits.
Wirewolf first came into being when Ty Parsec was bitten by the energy vampire, NOS-4-A2, then bathed in radioactive moonlight. From there, the Wirewolf wreaked havoc upon the research facility, and it took nearly all of Team Lightyear to stop it from eating the robots and threatening the scientists.
Later, Wirewolf was brought out yet again thanks to a fiendish scheme from NOS-4-A2 to turn everyone into wirewolves to facilitate his feeding.
After the last remaining chunk of moon rock is destroyed, the Wirewolf never surfaces again.
Hostile and vicious, the Wirewolf shows nothing more than typical animal behaviour. It snaps at robots, rips them to shreds, and otherwise acts like a very large, nasty canine. It can show bits of Ty's personality, however, such as the instance where Buzz Lightyear tried to reach out to the former Space Ranger in a heartfelt plea for Lightyear's life.
It possesses sharp claws, strong jaws, and extendable cable-like coils to ensnare prey. It is also a fast runner and is quite strong.
It can speak coherently, but it mostly snarls and growls.
- "Buzz..." (its sinister expression changes to one of concern and surprise, blinks)
- The name wirewolf is, needless to say, a pun on the word "werewolf".
- How it is possible for an organic being to turn into a robot is never explained, but it is likely that it may have to do with how NOS-4-A2's bite is able to take control of machines.
- His growls are familiar to Sheeva from "Parasite Eve".
