Sabreman, protagonist of the Sabre Wulf series, is the inspiration for Sabrewulf in the Killer Instinct series; in Sabre Wulf, Sabreman must collect four pieces of an amulet while avoiding the titular Sabre Wulf. In Knight Lore, Sabreman must find a cure for his lycanthropy (being a werewolf).

The Sabre Wulf series was developed and published by Ultimate Play the Game; Ultimate evolved into Rare, which is known for Killer Instinct among other games.
