* InsectoidAliens: Very downplayed, but the basis of the Martian design is meant to look ant-like, [[WordOfGod according to Chuck Jones]].

* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: In "Rabbit Transit", he actually has a tougher time with Bugs, even getting visibly frustrated when he manages to heckle him back. Bugs actually defeats him this time round, though Cecil happily settles for a moral victory.

A CaptainErsatz of Foxy after legal issues forced the former character into early retirement. Like all of Harman and Ising's characters, he was nondescript in personality. He made two appearances in the Merrie Melodies series, in "You Don't Know What You're Doin'" and "[[WesternAnimation/CensoredEleven Hittin' The Trail for Hallelujah Land]]". On another note, another character appeared a few years later that was also called Piggy in the Friz Freleng cartoon "Pigs is Pigs" and "At Your Service, Madame" although that character was a gluttonous little kid who had nothing in common with this earlier character.

* KarmicTrickster: Got the rare chance to play one against Elmer Fudd in ''Back Alley Oproar''



** His speaking role seemed to depend on character; since he was classified as a pet, he usually did not communicate with owners or humans but could make conversations with fellow pet-classified animals like Tweety. For other animals with more human roles like Daffy and Porky it was free-game and DependingOnTheWriter (though mute in ''Scaredy Cat'' and its followups, Sylvester spoke normally to Porky in ''Kitty Cornered'' and ''The Scarlet Pumpernickel'', for example).
