Mythological wendigo VS average mythological werewolf. Fight is in the Canadian wilderness.

The Wendigo would win so easily it's not funny.

Unless it's packing silver I doubt it. Not saying it would win easily, but werewolves in mythology need silver to be killed.

Yes it would, in Objiwe mythology Wendigos possessed immense strength that just grew more and more powerful as they devoured more flesh, they reached giant size. Algonquin mythology states they have power over Winter and Cold. This in addition to power over disease and starvation. Some Innu legends state they can actually possess mortals. The Algonquin further state they have great spiritual powers and are powerful malevolent magicians. Only the most powerful shamans had the power and knowledge to actually stand a chance against wendigos.

Werewolves in actual real mythology do not possess anything close to those powers, they are simply people cursed or possessing the power through sorcery to take the form of wolves and wolf-like monsters. Even the alledged invulnerability except to silver is largely a product of 19th century writers embellishing older tales. In most of the myths, they can be killed by mundane weapons and most legends end with hunters cornering one and killing it or the werewolf being executed after capture and trial

Well if we get technical Wendigo's were normal people who got consumed by the desire to eat human flesh. However in a fight between the two pictured above, I'd give it to the Wendigo as a Werewolf would eventually turn back into a human.

@RidTom: And if you want to get super technical, lycanthrope is the delusion you turn into a wolf and wendigo syndrome is basically an extreme case of cabin fever, leading to a break in sanity causing the person to develope an insatiable desire to eat human flesh even when other food sources were readily available, believing themselves to be turning into a monster

I've heard that a Wendigo is actually a highly advanced state of a Werewolf.

Going by the images, I'd face wendigo 100 times before facing a werewolf :)

wendigo maybe

werewolf would take this, wendigo's have a drive to eat, werewolves have a drive to mutilate and rip things apart.

What I find funny is that in the older White Wolf gaming series Wendigo is also a tribe of werewolves.

Wendigo, much more verstial in powers

Werewolf may or may not be unkillable except to silver but I'd wager a wendigo could defeat one. You don't need to kill to win.

Wendigo would soul rape it then use it to rape a town then eat the townspeople and their souls

Wendigo mauls the werewolf then buries it to the cursed Micmac Burial Ground from Pet Semetary and makes the werewolf his vessel(biacth).

Werewolf: "I am the wolfman, I am in the big 3 of horror classics. You are just a canadian bigfoot."

Wendigo: "Congratualtions on being famous, now everone knows how to kill you, ask the average person what kills a Wendigo."

Werewolf: "Other than being killed by the Winchesters, what have you done in the last... ever?"

Wendigo: "Well I was not associated with twilight."

Werewolf: "Good point, go ahead and kill me."

Werewolfs can be killed or stopped OR healed with more than just silver. Cause its a mythological creature from europe, our deliverances are quite quite big by that. Folks believed that you can kill or/eather stop a Werewolf by force him to swallow a virgins handkerchief... or bridal veil... sounds kinda stupid, right? But wheres the difference in the believings that "only silver can kill a werewolf".

And btw.: A Wendigo is NOT a kind of bigfootish creature, its more like a spiritual creature who has somekind of issue of a parasite, which infiltrate his victims by haunting them in their dreams or slips in when they eat human flesh.
