A Wolfrider's Reflections is a collection of filksongs about Elfquest, written and performed by BNFs in the filking community. Each song focuses on a different character or aspect of the Wolfriders' lives.

A print songbook was also published in March 1987.

Madcoil: Nightcrawler was nominated for a Pegasus award in 1996 for Best Eerie Song;[1] it's been the filked itself. Robin Nakkula wrote a parody that begins:

Something lingers in the fridge
Waiting in a pool of mayo...

Gwen Zak wrote a filk (although not a parody) of Troll Hall; "I Am Lord" was nominated the same year for Best Spiritual Song.
