** 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.

** ''VideoGame/MegaManX2'' features a minor enemy called Crash Roader resembling a boar-themed two-wheeled mechaniloid that might have inspired Boarski above. They reappear in ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission'' where their gimmick is that they [[TunrsRed grow in size and power]] every time [[BerserkButtom an ally is destroyed]].

* Hellride Boarski, from ''Videogame/MegaManX 7'', is a boar-model Reploid with a motorcycle-style alternate mode. He's also got a short temper, a lot of power, a styling mohawk, and is a member of Red Alert and the leader of a prominent street gang. One of his attacks is to ram into you at full speed and toss you into the air. [[StealthPun In other words, yes, he's a road-hog]].

* Boars are all over the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'', where their signature move is to lift you up with their tusks like a forklift and then throw you over their backs. (A real-world boar would run between your legs, slashing them with his tusks as he went.) A large boar was also featured in the beginning of ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', where hunting one caused the heroes not to be in town when it was [[DoomedHometown burned down]]. When you return to the future, you can hunt them freely, and they usually come with several children that, if you can catch them before they flee, drop large amounts of Pork.

* In Creator/TeresaEdgerton's fantasies set in {{Celydonn}}, talking pigs are frequently alluded to as a possible marvel; one two-headed and enormous boar does appear, and may even have spoken a few words (though they may have been grunts).
