Age of Empires II Edit
In Age of Empires II, the Wolf appears in several areas around the world, being generally the most common of the "hostile" wildlife. It has 25 HP, and holds no food, but attacks Villagers (and even some other units) on sight. A single Wolf can kill a Villager if it lands the first hit, but will die to anything stronger, even a Villager with the Loom upgrade. They are often found in groups, making them a greater threat.
Note: Magyar Villagers kill Wolves in one strike due to their civilization bonus.
There are also stronger variations of Wolves which are not generated on random maps. Those are: Rabid Wolf (30 HP), Dire Wolf (100 HP), Hunting Wolf (100 HP, can be converted and controlled by player), and Ornlu the Wolf (400 HP, can be controlled but cannot be converted by player).
The Wolf has a Line of Sight of 4 on Easiest difficulty, 6 on Easy difficulty, and 12 on Moderate and higher.
Age of Mythology Edit
The god power Fimbulwinter will summon a lot of fierce wolves that attacks the enemy town centers.
Arctic Wolf Edit
In some campaign maps in Age of Mythology, the Arctic Wolf appears, in two versions. It is similar to the regular Wolf, but slower, gives slightly more food (125), and attacks any unit that comes too close, not just Villagers. They can also be found in the Tundra map, using a second version of the unit.

"Scientific Name: Canis lupus
Approx. Size: 50-150 lb.
Diet: Deer, caribou, elk, sheep, small mammals
Historically, gray wolves could be found throughout the Northern Hemisphere, from the Arctic to the tropics. Habitat destruction and hunting have greatly reduced their ranges. They are highly social animals that live and hunt in packs of up to thirty-six individuals, led by an alpha male and female. Unrelated immigrants may be adopted into a pack. Packs are generally territorial and patrol their domains against intruders. Except for the red wolf, all living wolves are considered to be part of the C. lupus species. Domestic dogs, including feral subspecies such as dingos, are also classified as wolves. Domestication, perhaps as many as five different times, has lead to significant (but genetically irrelevant) differences between wolves and dogs."
