The wolfbat is an animal native to the caves of the Earth Kingdom, particularly the Cave of Two Lovers.[1]


A wolfbat attacked Team Avatar as they made their way through the Cave of Two Lovers. Sokka attempted to swat it away with a torch, only for the torch to be knocked out of his hand and land near Appa, subsequently scaring the flying bison and causing the wolfbat to flee. Shortly afterward, a group of wolfbats fled from two badgermoles passing by Sokka and the traveling nomads.[1]


The wolfbat is the size of a wolf and generally resembles the canine, except for its bat-like wings and face. It is brown in coloration, quadrupedal, and possesses a set of webbed wings that it uses to fly. It has sharp, pointed teeth and a snout that resembles that of a hog's.


Territorial by nature, wolfbats only leave their normal habitat at night. They tend to congregate in large groups, making them even more dangerous.[2] Their only predator is the gigantic badgermole, but they are also frightened by fire.[1] The wolfbat does not build nests.[3]


The wolfbat possesses attributes from both of its namesakes; its body shape and size, as well as its general temperament, resemble that of a wolf, whilst its wings and face are taken from a bat.
