* In the legends describing Alexander the Great's India campaigns he and his men encounter a creature that is described as a humanoid boar creature not unlike a wereboar. They attempt to trap it by [[DistractedByTheSexy having a beautiful woman lure it into an ambush.]] However that plan goes pear-shaped when the boar-man takes off with the woman and eats her, forcing Alexander and his troops to chase it down and kill it with spears.

In yet another (almost entirely [[HoYay gay]]) sense, anthropomorphic pigs and boars can be very potent FetishFuel in furry {{Bara}}. This is somewhat rare in the Western UsefulNotes/FurryFandom (and any cultural context where pigs are culturally considered unappealing to look at), but is more abundant in the Japanese {{Kemono}} community, where it peaked during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig_%28zodiac%29 Year of the Pig]] in 2007. Much of the appeal is in the highly masculine UnkemptBeauty of Pig Men portrayals (sometimes overlapping with UglyCute), having much in common with the aesthetic ideals of TheBear community.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': Both Ganon and the [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Moblins]] fit this trope, though the latter [[DependingOnTheArtist though they flipflop between this]] and [[HalfHumanHybrids Bulldog Men]]. In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', Ganon actually becomes a bull-man [[OneWingedAngel deliberately overdosing on the Triforce of Power]], but most other times he becomes a boar-like creature, which 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.

** Exactly how porcine Ganon looks tends to vary by medium; 2D games go for, basically, a super-sized trident-wielding Moblin look, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' uses a tusked demonic humanoid, and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' can be best described as a giant hybrid lion-ape thing with a somewhat porcine face and huge tusks.

In fantasy settings they may be a rare kind of were-animal, or just a pig-faced monster. Sometimes the work will call the PigMan an [[OurOrcsAreDifferent "orc"]] -- this probably stems from the fact that orcs are often depicted as pug-nosed, tusked creatures and ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'', a RPG series that was very popular in Japan depicting them as Pigmen based off an illustration in 1st edition Dungeons and Dragons.. In more futuristic settings, they'll be the product of genetic manipulation; these are usually human with "pig" added to them, but it could be the other way around. Either way, they're used as grunts, they have little intelligence, and [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman they can be slaughtered by the hundreds with no moral implications]].
