The Wild Hunt

On Teen Wolf, the Wild Hunt, also known as Woden's Hunt or the Wild Ride, is an event that occurs anywhere and anytime in the world.


During the Hunt, thunder storms start and the phantom Ghost Riders appear, riding their spectral horses and take people, human or otherwise, dead or alive, erasing them from existence, taking their victims to ride the Wild Hunt.


The victims who are taken are transported to a limbo esque dimension appearing in the form of a train station where they wait for a train to take them. The erased individuals will then transform into new Ghost Riders enslaved to ride the lightning with the Hunt forever.


The main participants of the Wild Hunt are the ghost riders and the hellhound.

"We are the Wild Hunt. Those who hunt with us hunt forever."

Characteristics of the Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt are drawn to areas where war, chaos and strife occur.
