* 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).

Basically, pigs with tusks and a personality to match. While non-tusked swine are generally shown as greedy and [[MessyPig somewhat messy]], boars are generally seen as their AxCrazy cousins. Why? Basically, pig noses are awesome and adding SpikesOfVillainy should only make them even more awesome!

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' provided the page image, [[Characters/TheLegendOfZelda and that's not even the series' most famous boar]].
* The series' BigBad, the vaguely-Middle-Eastern robber-wizard-warlord Ganondorf, often appears as (or temporarily takes on the form of) a great boar-demon, in which form he's called Ganon; no explanation for name differences has been provided, but he certainly has the same personality -- [[SorcerousOverlord and the same cunning and intelligence]], much like real wild boars -- in both forms.
** ''Twilight Princess'' also has the Bulblins, whose Bullbo mounts embody this trope. The page image 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. Link can even ride the Bullbos himself in a couple of locations.

* 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 have an explosive reproductive rate (in optimal conditions a sow can produce three litters per year of 8-16 piglets each). It's been estimated that simply ''controlling'' a feral pig colony's population requires the culling of 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.

* Wild boars were prominent among the "beasts of venery", the animals it was not disgraceful for a nobleman to hunt; the modern Boar's Head brand probably pays tribute to this.
