In fantastic settings most obvious effect is that werewolves can be found in their monstrous form during full moon only.

In realistic settings visibility at night far outside of cities (e.g. rural or wilderness areas) is affected severely by moon phase.
... this is related to diffuse reflection, which is extremely prominent in cities (and other settlements) and near them, moon is the only natural source and it's a very powerful one in this regard (causing major full moon vs new moon visibility differences).
