Killer Instinct Wiki

Sabrewulf's Castle (also called the Wolf Castle) is a stage featured in Killer Instinct 2/Gold. As the name implies, it is Sabrewulf's combat stage and most likely his residence.


The castle's only known interior is that of a hallway with a chandelier dangling from the ceiling above, candles and torches lining the walls and a fireplace roaring in the background. The outer wall to the far right of the stage will break if a character is slammed into it enough times, leading to a small courtyard with a dry/unused well.

Knockoff (Stage Ultra)[]

The victor knocks the opponent up into the dry well, where they helplessly flail down into the seemingly bottomless pit until no longer seen, and are heard fatally hitting the ground.

In KI Gold, due to data restrictions, the well is missing, and the courtyard is replaced with a wide balcony. So instead, the loser is knocked off the balcony to their deaths.


  • The true location of Sabrewulf's secluded manor is in Ravensburg, revealed in the first chapter of the KI Novella for the reboot. It is based on the name of the real-life town in the state of Baden-Württemberg, located in Germany.
  • The stage's Knockoff in KI2 bears a striking resemblance to Mortal Kombat 4's Continue screen.
