Official Profile[edit | edit source]
Wayne is a werewolf, a miserable data processor by day and a put-upon father by night. He and his wife have produced litter after litter of pups and as a result, he barely has the energy to get through a day and has lost most of his sense of smell from changing a barrage of smelly baby diapers or so he says. So even though he arrives with his misbehaved children and pregnant wife in tow, Wayne cannot wait for his vacation at Hotel Transylvania to begin. He can let his hair down and just be himself, and maybe even take in a nap or two. But perhaps the best part about visiting the cavernous old resort is that he might just be able to hide from his kids for most of the holiday.
Age[edit | edit source]
In Hotel Transylvania 2 Drac says while looking back at where Wayne, Frank, Griff and Murray are sitting:
- "Boys, this bringing back any memories? We used to prowl around here when we were in our one-hundreds; The Dark Forest of Slobozia!"
This indicates that Wayne and Drac's ages are less than 99 apart, because the furthest apart two people in their hundreds could be is 100 and 199 years old.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Wayne has brown or gray fur and yellow eyes. He wears a light blue shirt with a striped tie and blue jeans with a brown belt, and a hat with narrow stripes (only shown in official artwork).
Personality[edit | edit source]
Wayne is stressed and has a lot of time on his hands. And maybe he has somewhat of a real wolf side. Like wolfing down lots of sheep at a preposterously fast pace and burping wool loudly and shown no empathy for the sheep and annoyance at his friend's disgust of his greed.
Wayne acts more like a dog. But acts like in the first movie stressed and cynic; for his pups is stressed (except Winnie). It is unknown the relationship between Winnie and her father but is show Winnie is the only one who respects her father.
Biography[edit | edit source]
19th century [edit | edit source]
Wayne is one of Dracula's best friends he attends Dracula's and Martha's wedding along with Frank, Murray, and Griffin who played the music at Dracula's and Martha's wedding.
Wayne, Frank, Griffin, and Murray arrives at Dracula's and Martha's home when Martha gives birth to Mavis.
After Martha's death at the hands of a mob of angry humans, Dracula builds Hotel Transylvania as a safe haven for all monsters and Wayne and his family go to Hotel Transylvania every year.
It is unknown where and what year that Wayne and Wanda met. However, it is guessed that they met before the first film.
Arriving at the Hotel[edit | edit source]
Wayne arrives at the hotel with his wife, Wanda, their dozens of wolf children and he tips their cab driver after stating that "it's a mess back there." He and Wanda are greeted by Dracula while their children wreak havoc on the place.
He makes fun of Frankenstein's fear of fire and laughs with him and Dracula as his pups attack Griffin, who was tricked into holding a strip of bacon by Dracula. Wayne is also greeted by Murray, who was blamed for farting by Frankenstein.
He and Wanda come up to Mavis's room to greet her and, upon hearing that she is going to a human village, advises her to stay in the shadows and that it is more fun to just observe [from under a house]. He then watches as Mavis leaves out the window.
Meeting Johnny[edit | edit source]
Dracula later comes across Frank, Murray, and Wayne and his pups attacking the zombie musicians, as Wayne says the zombies were interrupting them from practicing their "big number" for Mavis' party. He goes on to say that they wanted to play like as in "old times" and have Dracula sing with them. Dracula refuses, saying that he hasn't sung in public since his wife, Martha died. Shortly after, a young stranger stumbles into the room, introduced by Dracula as Johhnystein, Frankenstein's cousin.
Wayne is excited when he learns that Johnny is also a party planner that Dracula hired.
Encouraged by Johnny, Wayne plays piano in a band that consists of him, Frankenstein, Griffin, and Murray. He is then told by Johnny to "give him a jam" for a more upbeat performance.
He and his family proceed to follow Dracula's "schedule", which includes a game of bingo, and a game of charades in the auditorium. The game is interrupted, however, when Johnny shows off his scooter. He and Wanda watch in excitement as Johnny performs tricks on his scooter.
He is seen later that night sitting with Johnny before Dracula takes the latter away. He and Wanda then watch as Johnny and Mavis have a chicken fight in the pool. He later pulls Griffin's shorts down, much to the delight of his children.
Afterward he is enjoying the sauna with Dracula and the other monsters. When he asks if the Johnny is done working, Dracula claims that he has left before Johnny crashes down from the ceiling.
Truth revealed[edit | edit source]
Wayne is later shown to be having trouble sleeping due to having several of his pups sleeping and snoring on top of him. As soon as he closes his eyes, the alarm clock shrieks and the kids wake up howling in his ears. He is the DJ at Mavis's birthday party later that day, apparently having a good time, before hearing Dracula reveal that the village that Mavis went to was fake. It is also revealed that there is a human at the hotel and that the human is Johnnystein. He and everybody else then leave the party.
Getting Johnny back[edit | edit source]
While trying to check out of the hotel, he complains about a mini-bar charge that the kids threw out the window, before Dracula pleads with the monsters to stay and help him find Johnathan. Wayne lashes at Dracula for letting a human in the place, though he calms down after Dracula explains that he doesn't even know what humans are like anymore, with that he exchanges a sad-eyed glance with Wanda. Upon hearing that Mavis and Johnny may have even "zinged", he, Murray, Griffin, Frankenstein, and Dracula rush to find Johnny. He is briefly seen sticking his head out the window of the cab they get into.
Dracula says he will need Wayne's help, but Wayne is not sure what for. When he realizes Dracula needs a sharp nose to track Johnny down, he explains that he has actually lost most, if not all, of his sense of smell due to changing the many diapers of his children.
But he does call upon his children via a seemingly inaudible whistle in hopes that one of them will be able to track Johnny down. Most of the pups are unwilling to help, but Wayne's young daughter, Winnie is able to tell him that Johnny was driven to an airport and has boarded a plane that will be leaving in fifteen minutes.
When the gang encounters a large flock of sheep blocking their path, Wayne helps by quickly devouring them all and burps wool loudly. Dracula, Frankenstein, Griffin and Murray are all disgusted by this act, despite Wayne's claims that now there's no sheep blocking them & what he did is the same as "eating lamb chops". Wayne then angrily retorts about the lack of time, telling Griffin to drive.
On their way into town, they encounter a "monster festival", which is full of humans who are dressing up as monsters. They decide to get out of the cab and walk to the airport when they realize the place is too crowded. Wayne listens as Frankenstein explains that the real Dracula is among them. He then watches as all the humans that are dressed up as Dracula line up and have other humans lift up their capes, providing a sun-blocking path for Dracula to go through.
Upon the reuniting of Mavis and Johnny, Wayne is seen next to Wanda, celebrating with the others. He once again performs as a DJ for a second party and then dances with Wanda on a floating table.
In the ending credits, he is seen walking behind a now-thin Wanda, pushing a carriage containing two baby werewolves; a small pup also sits on his head.
By the time of the second movie, Wayne is seen as a tennis instructor at the hotel, though his tendency to chase balls and bury them proves to be problematic during his lessons. He is also showing less wolf-like behavior and acts more like a dog.
Mavis' and Johnny's Wedding[edit | edit source]
Wayne along with his wife Wanda and kids is in attendance at Mavis' and Johnny's wedding Wayne looks at an adopting as Mavis makes her way up to the stage Wayne is disappointed when Dracula tells Mavis and Johnny to share a small kiss.
Then, at the wedding reception, Wayne sits with Wanda. Later, Wayne and Wanda dance together on the dance floor.
And finally, Wayne claps along with Wanda and all the others as Dracula sings a song to Mavis and Johnny and gives them his blessing.

Later, Dracula convinces that Mavis to visit California and he secretly brings his grandson and he wants his friends to show their evil abilities. They go to Dark Forest Municipal Park and Bike Trail first, and the place was where young Dracula and his mates play. They hide in the bushes and watch Frank scare two female joggers, but the two joggers ask Frank if he wants to join them in a selfie instead.
They go deeper into the forest; sometime later, they stop and Drac tells Dennis that Wayne is to show how he used to kill. At first, Wayne refuses to perform, then Drac tells Wayne that they should inspire Dennis how to find his inner monster in time. Wayne replies that there is nothing to kill as of now; at that moment, a deer walks by, which Frank says is a cutie, but he later told Wayne to kill it. Wayne whines about that he hasn't killed in years and they don't have to kill anymore since they have pop tarts.
Dracula then tells Dennis that Wayne is going to eat the deer. Wayne continues to complain, saying that he's too old to kill. He howls at first, then he remembers that's for when the Moon rises; then, he remembers that he should growl instead. He sneaks up on the deer and says the word "growl" at the deer, which confuses the deer. Just then, a man throws a frisbee and Wayne chases after it immediately and he even fights with the man's dog for the frisbee. Such acts amuse everyone except Dracula, Dennis cheers Wayne on as he fought for the frisbee. At last, Wayne gets the frisbee and keeps biting it, much to Dracula's annoyance; soon, Dracula tries to drag off the frisbee from Wayne, which causes Blobby and his scooter to be thrown out of a cliff in the process.
They go to another place in the forest. Murray is the next one to show his ability and Dracula has him to produce a sandstorm, but when he does so, he twists his back and the magic fails. Frank and Dennis make fun of some sand that Murray brings, which makes Wayne and Griffin giggle until Griffin is pinched by Dracula. They then head to Camp Winnepacaca, where Dracula once visited when he was little.

- In the third film, Ericka trapped him and Wanda in a closet. Throughout the summer, they were never seen until at the end. It's unknown who took them out of the closet and got them tranquilized.

- Like many fictional wolves, Wayne's favorite food is lamb.
- In Hotel Transylvania 2, Wayne is hesitant to kill a deer while teaching Dennis monster customs, stating he is afraid harming animals would "set monsters back."
