The full moon rises! The Werehog is unleashed!

The Werehog returns, with a whole new set of skills and gameplay, inspired by his gameplay in Sonic Unleashed!

The Werehog's combat is significantly different from his original game, this time tailored towards' SRB2's level design, which encourages using enemies to your advantage to progress in a fluid manner. But, if you can't run from a fight, he's well equipped for a good brawl!


Due to popular demand, this ability is disabled by Default. If you wish to enable it for the full experience, type "runbutton enable" in console.
The Werehog moves slower than the rest of the cast, but by holding Custom 1 you run on all fours to achieve maximum speed! Be careful though - he has a much higher acceleration than others, so try not to slip and fall while running!

Unlike his hedgehog counterpart, the Werehog can't attack enemies by jumping on them, but by pressing spin midair, he can slash forwards with his claws for a poweful attack that can destroy spikes, walls and floors alike. It's great for midair combat, as you can use it multiple times after jumping, or even bouncing on springs!

Tons of enemies on the floor, and don't want to repeatedly bounce on each one to defeat them? Well then, has Werehog got the move for you! By holding spin on the floor, you'll start spinning around like a denim-wearing-bandicoot and destroy all enemies (spikes or walls) in your path!

Double Jump and Grapple-Punch

If there are no enemies nearby, tapping the jump button again in the air will give you some extra height with the Double Jump! Useful when you slip off a platform, or to make it easier to reach higher places.

If there are enemies near you when jumping, pressing the jump button will make the Werehog stretch his arm to grab the nearest enemy and grapple towards it. Just tapping the jump button will make you bounce off it like a homing attack, stopping your momentum. But, by holding it, you'll bounce much higher and launch at full speed forwards! You can combo multiple enemies and keep the pace while you play "The Floor is Lava" on any level!

Absolutely everything about Werehog's abilities, sound effects and visual effects is thanks to MotdSpork. Rumia1 helped a ton with testing and suggesting different ideas plus helping spork with the coding. Tatsuru for letting us use their Amyhugs script, and Lach for helping spork fix a nasty flipped gravity bug. Thank you so much for making the Werehog super unique!

Alright, here's an actual update and not an April Fools joke.

You can now toggle the reticle SFX, and shut up the Jazz band too. Enjoy!

Unrelated but I love that Byleth artwork you have.

On a more related note thanks to allow people to disable the jazz music.
