Appropriateness[edit]

+Appr tag. Mainstream belief, not connected as a term or lore to furry. No progation in the fandom (Skins did not gave them the ability to transform as Therians do) Spirou 02:14, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Incidently, I redlinked berserkers at Russian WikiFur just this week, though I meant it as a redirect. I know quite a few "bear warrior" classes or races in different RPGs, primal warriors who turn into bears and live in their image. They are based on berserkers (or even called that), so the short info on berserkers would be in the "Mythology" section. Would it help this article if I add info on bear warriors?

It will still be based on a mainstream form of belief were true humans believed on the possession of the animal's strength, without no recorded instance of actual form change. It is like we are trying to wedge a historical/fantasy historical/lore instance (i.e. vampire/mermaid) into furry =( Spirou 05:58, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
No more than Werewolf: The Apocalypse is based on a mainstream form of belief. But it's still a game much-loved by furries. EvilCat 11:41, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
P.S. Though I agree that it's better to have an article on bear warriors which mentions berserkers than an article on berserkers which mentions bear warriors %) EvilCat 14:01, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Or probably a "totem warrior" article would be more appropriate. Not only bear, but also jaguar and wolf warriors are common in RPGs (transformation included). There is also Kung Fu which is connected to animals so much that anthro Kung Fu fighters emerge even in popular culture. EvilCat 20:38, 29 March 2011 (CEST)
