I'm not your friend, I'm an animal who dreamed he was a man. But the dream is over. And the beast is awake. And I will come for you because it is my nature.

X-Men Origin: Wolverine

In the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he is Wolverine's older brother and the secondary antagonist who turned supporting protagonist and later the anti-hero of the film and was portrayed by Liev Schreiber. He and Wolverine have been together, taking care of each other and have been in every American war due to their ability of accelerating healing factor. Sabretooth's story is somewhat similar and somewhat different to Wolverine's story. They both were in the same team lead by William Stryker. The members were Agent Zero, Fred Dukes, AKA Blob Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool, John Wraith, and Chris Bradley AKA Bolt, now deceased. However in every war he slowly begin enjoying killing people. Six years after Wolverine leaves the team he begins to kill and kidnapping other mutants under the command of Stryker. He then "kills" Logan's girlfriend or wife ino order to provoke him into excepting Styker's treatment so he can properly fight Victor. In the end Wolverine and Sabretooth team up to take down Weapon XI or Deadpool.


Scream for me.
~ Sabretooth to Storm

Sabretooth is the tertiary antagonist in the first X-Men movie and was portrayed by Tyler Mane who also played Michael Myers. He is Magneto's right-hand and a member of the Brotherhood of Mutants, however he doesn't have much to say and there's no back story. All he mostly does is growl at everyone, mostly at Toad. He and Wolverine had a fight on top of the Statue of Liberty. With the powers of Cyclops and Jean Grey they blasted Sabretooth through the Statue of Liberty and fell right through a security boat.

He is confirmed to have survived the fall, but has not been seen since. A possible explanation for his failure to properly recognize Wolverine is that he had become so feral by this point that he lost his memory, though since the "Origins" film was released after "X-Men", the writers probably hadn't thought of it yet.


  • This incarnation is similar to Dog Logan though in the original comics both he and Dog Logan are separate characters.
