* The island from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' is inhabited by wild boars, which are generally shown as being quite ferocious. They are one of the Lostaways' chief food staples before the DHARMA supplies are found, and hunter Locke uses Charlie as bait to catch one. In an early episode, Michael gets injured by one during a hunt.
** One stole Sawyer's tent. It [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane may be]] the reincarnation of a man Sawyer killed.

* An episode of DiscoveryChannel's ''Series/SonsOfGuns'' had the Red Jacket crew design a rifle specifically for taking down feral hogs; the thing fires a .458 SOCOM round that's almost half an inch across in order to penetrate the boar's armor-like bone structure.

** 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.

** And of course dire boars are a nightmare to low-level players, heck ordinary boars are pretty powerful for medium-sized animals too.



* Some enemies (primarily the Bulbins) in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' have boars as mounts. The page picture is their leader, King Bulbin, on the esteemed Lord Bullbo. If you don't know what you're doing, you could get boared to death. (The sister trope PigMan is also quite popular in that series.)
** Also of note is [[spoiler:BigBad Ganon]], who at one point takes the form of a giant boar and charges around the room, smashing everything in his path.
** Ganon looks like an anthropomorphic boar in many games of the series, though unusually for the trope [[SorcerousOverlord he is far from being a mindless brute]].

** Warhammer's Beastmen also have bad-tempered mutant boars called Tuskgors to pull their crude wooden chariots. Tuskgors combine all the bad-temperedness of a regular boar with ram horns, bony plates, extra fangs and the like. There are also giant versions of the Tuskgor called Razorgors, which are covered in spikes and perpetually furious at the world.

* Creator/GamesWorkshop games:
** 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 havenít had any in game rules since the 3rd edition of the game and they are rarely, if ever, mentioned in the modern background material.

* An enraged boar is so vicious and distempered that they have been known to clamber up the shaft of a spear that has skewered them in attempt to harm the hunter wielding it. To that end, the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boar_spear Boar Spear]]" arised: a pair of wing-shaped lugs right behind the tip prevents the boar from doing that.
