Therianthropes (獣人 kemono-bito, beast person) can transform between a human and a quasi-beast youkai depending on the phases of the moon, with werewolves being the most well-known variety. Theriantropy can be heriditary or inflicted by a curse, though the latter kind usually gain animal traits (such as horns, fangs or extra hair) rather than transforming completely into animals.
