* In Book 9 of the ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' series, the Heffleys end up winning a baby pig at a fair, and are forced to keep it to avoid insulting the people running the fair. The pig ends up causing a lot of trouble and messes, culminating in the family leaving the pig at a petting zoo. Much to Manny's displeasure, since he and the pig had bonded at first sight. Circumstances eventually reunite the pig with the family, and they end up accepting it as a pet. The pig turns out to be pretty intelligent, since it only takes a few days for Greg's mother Susan to housebreak it. It even somehow figures out how to use the television remote.

There's also the so-called ''Film/{{Babe}}'' Syndrome: the tendency of city folk who have never seen a live pig in the flesh to think that pigs are cute and pink and make good pets. While pigs are very intelligent and can be trained to do tricks and such, the average barnyard porker isn't particularly cuddly. They can weigh up to a few hundred pounds and occasionally be quite aggressive. There are a few breeds bred specifically as pets, such as Pot-Bellied pigs, but even these require specialized care that most people cannot meet.

* The VideoGame/BadPiggies of ''VideoGame/AngryBirds''.
* Pigma Dengar, one of the worst recurring characters in the ''StarFox'' series and the worst of the StarWolf characters.
* The Warrens of ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' are filled with malicious man-sized pigs (and the occasional [[FullBoarAction boar]]), living their own filth and the remains of humans they've cannibalized. Justified in that they're only physically pigs; they are actually fleshy confines for [[EldritchAbomination creatures beyond understand]], who don't particularly care about their cleanliness.

## This tradition can also be traced back to the Old Testament period of ''Literature/TheBible'', notably the Book of Leviticus, which stated that several animals are considered unclean, including pig. This is averted in New Testament period which all foods are edible and it heavily condemns sects which forbids the consumption of some foods, notably in the Book of Timothy.

* The Rashberry species in ''VideoGame/VivaPinata''. Their house is covered in mud, and eat rotten food. And when you cross-romance them with their polar opposite the perfect, dainty Swanana you get [[CueTheFlyingPigs something completely different]].

* Generally averted in ''WesternAnimation/PeppaPig''... except for the RunningGag that "everyone likes jumping in muddy puddles".

Actually, pigs are instinctively clean animals, but their habit of rooting the ground and rolling in whatever moisture is available creates [[CoveredInMud messy results]] in confined spaces. Despite not having that much hair, pigs aren't able to sweat, meaning that they have to roll around in cool and damp places frequently to prevent themselves from suffering heatstroke. Also, thanks to their omnivorous instinct to probe and explore everything around them for traces of food, pigs love to make a mess by chewing things to bits and rooting around in the pieces. Rotten wood, sofa cushions, or especially straw are bound to wind up in a million tiny fragments when a pig can get at them. For a human observer, such behavior creates a strong impression of a messy, dirty, unhygienic animal. Similarly, their habit of wallowing in dirt is not without reason - a layer of mud on their bodies helps them keep cool in hot weather. This is particularly important to them because they are unable to sweat.

* The ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep'' movie show us how messy the Pigs are when unsupervised once the Farmer is missing and the Pigs took his house. Of course [[spoiiler:when they see the Farmer coming back they have to clean all their mess quickly and HilarityEnsues.]]
