* The Calydonian Boar. In the [[Myth/GreekMythology Greek myth]] of Atalanta, Meleager brings Atalanta to hunt it. When she kills it, Meleager offers her its hide and asks her to marry him. It did not end well.
** In Greek Mytholody, boars were sacred to Ares, the god of war. Why? Because they have a hair-trigger temper, charge anything they see when enraged, and seem simply to refuse to die.

* Fantasy Tabletop [=RPGs=] sometimes have Wild Boars as possible opponents for player characters. Examples include ''Pendragon'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.
** In the third edition of D&D, every boar has the Diehard feat which prevents it from falling unconscious when it's out of hit points; you have to keep going until it's dead dead (negative ten or so). This was also alluded to in the older editions of the game, which allowed boars to keep going for a few combat rounds even after their hitpoints went to zero. After that, or when they hit a certain negative number, they then died.
** Some editions also have [[DireBeast Dire]] Boars which are even tougher.
** [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] were frequently depicted in older editions of D&D as being humanoid boars, when they weren't depicted as [[PigMan Pig Men]]. Wereboars are a straighter example, in that they're short-tempered and very violent, albeit not truly evil.

** In some editions of TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}, orks of the Snakebite clan had the option of riding bad tempered boars into battle with some of the more technically minded clans upgrading them to bionic cyboars. Unfortunately, ork boarboyz haven't had any in game rules since the 3rd edition of the game and they are rarely, if ever, mentioned in the modern background material.

** ''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 [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Make Love, Not Warcraft"]]. They also make good Hunter pets, if not the most stylish, with their high health and stun ability.
*** The most extensive use of boars is in the Barrens, whre the Quillboars, the anthromorphic variant, train armored traditional boars and guard the body of their fallen boar god.

** 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]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/CityBuildingSeries Zeus - Master of Olympus]]'' wild boars can be found in certain areas and can be hunt for food. However in certain missions (usually if you got on Artemis' bad side) you'd be plagued by the terrible Calidonian Boar, which is bigger, spits fireballs and can only be defeated by Theseus.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' gives us Isidoros, The Black Boar That Twists The Skies. Probably the least malevolent of the [[EldritchAbomination Yozis]], he acts as [[WorldsStrongestMan the universe's upper limit of physical strength]], and spends most of his time absentmindedly wandering around [[{{Hell}} Malfeas]] trampling things and leaving hoofprints the size of city blocks.

** Among mundane animals, Hellboars are a breed of wild pig so ferocious that they can prove more than a match for even a Terrestrial Exalted. They are also known to turn actively predatory, and can crack human bones between their teeth. The illustration in the corebook depicting one shows it as uncannily similar to an entelodont[[note]]a group of prehistoric ungulates once thought to be related to pigs, although this is now considered false[[/note]], and standing over the bloody carcass of an elephant while facing off a pack of [[RaptorAttack claw striders]].
