These wolves serve as companion and battle animals for The Disciples of the Wolf Commandments and follow the organization leader: Wolf Lord. Riki fought a couple of these animals, sent by his master for an initial attack, but quickly knocked them down with a few punches. They seem to have an unusual ferocity due to Wolf-Lord's hypnotic and mind-controlling powers.
- Throughout his journey - during the first and second arcs, in particular - Riki compares himself with a "wolf”. He emphasizes that – as these animals - he does not wear shackles and cannot be tamed. The Wolf Lord´s mind-controlled dire wolves and the Wolf Commandments itself represent the opposite of Riki´s view.
