After obtaining the cloak from a wizard by the name of Knubbin, Granny insists that Red wears the cloak at all times, stating that wolves do not like the color red. In reality however, the cloak has magical properties which stops Red from turning during wolfstime. Even if Red is already in her wolf form, if Red's wolf form is covered by the cloak, she will return to her original human form. The cloak is magic, so the spell doesn't wear off if there is a small tear in it.
- It is based on Red Riding Hood's iconic cloak from the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood.
