* Both Ganon and the [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Moblins]] fit this trope, [[DependingOnTheArtist though they flipflop between this]] and [[HalfHumanHybrids Bulldog Men]]; in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Ganon first takes on this form by [[OneWingedAngel deliberately overdosing on the Triforce of Power]], but an anthropomorphic-boar form seems to suit him fairly well. And while we don't see much of the Moblins in the games or their associated literature, when we do see them, they're generally engaged in plundering defenseless villages.

* Gamorreans in ''Franchise/StarWars'' are green-skinned pigmen who serve as {{Mooks}} for Jabba the Hutt. In the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, they're a violent, primitive people that gravitates towards being Mooks or guards (in other terms, [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] [[RecycledInSpace in SPAAAACE!]]). The ComicBook/XWingSeries introduces the pilot Voort "Piggy" saBinring, whose brain chemistry was tampered with, making him a calm GeniusBruiser (although he will revert to his basic instincts if critically wounded and/or someone tries to assassinate a higher officer during a briefing, as an unlucky brainwashed Twi'lek officer discovered). Also, according to WordOfGod, they are so primitive that even bribing them will not work in getting them to betray their boss, explaining why they are so popular to have as guards. The depiction of Gamorreans is somewhat inconsistent, with a few individuals being civilized enough operate in modern society, while most Gamorreans (especially on their homeworld Gamor) are completely tribal. Female Gamorreans are depicted as somewhat smarter and less innately aggressive than males, but still less intelligent than the average human.

* Pigs occasionally turn up as characters in ''UsagiYojimbo''. Gunichi, the mentor who originally sponsored Usagi to Lord Mifume, who deserted them at the Battle of Aichi Plain and whom Usagi later tracked down and killed, was a PigMan. There's also [[ZatoIchi Zato-Ino,]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Blind Swordspig.]]

Due to their association with Orcs and to negative cultural associations of their animal nature, pig men are often cast as villains. Heroic pig men also exist, although they typically have somewhat slovenly characteristics act as antiheroes. Heroic pig men typically represent men in their late forties, and as such tend to have jaded or hard boiled personalities. They may also have positive characteristics which are typically associated with this demographic, such as jolliness and caring parental traits. The villains in these cases will typically also be cruel, vain, narcissists; Uncle Mavis from ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'' who went up against trumped up military officials (among others), and Anime/PorcoRosso who went up against a cocky fascist fighter pilot.
