** Boar (and sow hunting) is a pretty dangerous sport, to the point that semi automatics are usually recommended wherever they are legal.[[note]]There are two parts to this though. One is that hogs are dangerous enough that a high capacity semi auto is necessary to stop a charging one. The other is that since there are so many pigs that people prefer to be able to get as many shots of as possible on a herd.[[/note]]

** ''WorldofWarcraft'' has ''tons'' of boars; it's actually possible to level from 1 to 70 killing nothing but [[UndergroundMonkey various forms of wild swine]], lampshaded in [[SouthPark "Make Love, Not Warcraft"]]. They also make good Hunter pets, if not the most stylish, with their high health and stun ability.

* ''Series/MidsomerMurders'': In "Wild Harvest", the first VictimOfTheWeek is tied up in a forest, doused with truffle oil, and left to be gored to death by a wild boar. This is strange and unusually brutal, even by Midomer's standards.

** In ''Dances with Dragons", Ser Barristan observes a gladiator fight between a "Pit Fighter" and a boar. The sword-wielding pit fighter manages a to give the boar a single wound before being killed by it, and Ser Barristan inwardly notes one can only a boar with a spear or arrows.



** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' also has the Bulblins, whose Bullbo mounts embody this trope. The page image is their leader, King Bulblin, on the esteemed Lord Bullbo. If you don't know what you're doing, you could get [[IncrediblyLamePun boared]] to death. Link can even ride the Bullbos himself in a couple of locations.

The Bullbos are pretty stupid, and can run right into walls or off the edge of cliffs (your horse Epona will always stop before doing either of these); but when charging can also smash down walls allowing access to new areas, or break archer towers.

* In the folklore of VictorianLondon, the Black Swine of Hampstead were the local version of SewerGators; terrifying feral hogs that had grown fat on sewage and might well emerge from the storm drains at any moment searching for more food. The inspiration for ''Neverwhere'''s Beast of London.

** Peccaries are small and don't have external tusks, so they don't look menacing. Until [[http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get/I0000vMQSy9HqO8I/s/800/800/Collared-Peccary-Larry-Ditto-70K1979.jpg they open their mouths]], and you realise that there are around 20 of them together. They can drive jaguars off, and jaguars are strong animals that wrestle caimans and bite through skulls.

* Feral pigs are one of the most dangerous and destructive invasive species in the world. Pigs are very hearty animals, can eat almost anything, and are restricted in environments only by the availability of water for drinking and bathing. They also multiply like very large rabbits: a sow can have as many of three litters per year, of 8-16 piglets each. According to some estimates, just ''controlling'' a feral pig colony's population requires culling 90% of the pigs each year. In many places, pigs have become serious threats to native animals and livestock: in Texas, for instance, feral pigs are responsible for the deaths of more lambs on sheep ranches than anything else.
