* Most of the NPCs you'll meet in ''VideoGame/FreezeME'' are pig men. Well, more like Pig {{Waddling Head}}s, but they are talking pigs. One of them, Piggleston, is a fully upright pig humanoid.

* Porker Lewis from ''ComicBook/{{SonictheComic}} who, interestingly enough, started off as a cute non-anthro pig and gained more human traits as the comic went on. Also of note, even after becoming taller and gaining clothes, he kept his pig trotter hands before the writers realized that, being the secondary tech genius of the group, he needed fingers.

* Tragically, unborn children whose mothers are exposed to the highly radioactive isotope D-38 (depleted uranium) often come out with piglike noses. If they're lucky. [[note]] If they're not, they're born dead, as [[FacialHorror faceless lumps of flesh]]. [[/note]]

* Gammorreans 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.

* Tellarites in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe. Not evil (in fact, along with the humans, Andorians and Vulcans they founded the Federation), but incredibly arrogant and argumentative. Thanks to their BlueAndOrangeMorality, they consider insults and blustering arrogance good manners, and find excessively "polite" behaviour somewhat offensive. The StarTrekNovelVerse expands on this to demonstrate that pride is a virtue to them, not a vice. In the StarfleetCorpsOfEngineers novels, Fabian Stevens insists he finds racist jokes about the Tellarite-pig resemblance tasteless, yet he seems to have an awfully large collection of them stored away in his mind. He would never accuse Tellarite team-member Tev of [[IncrediblyLamePun "hogging the glory"]], oh no...

* The Orcs in ''{{Slayers}}'' are pig-men with red skin. In one episode of NEXT, they were even cooked and served in a restaurant! Not that they taste good, mind you...

Dew to their association with orcs and to crass characteristics, 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 Beyond Good and Evil and Procoroso are examples of this character type, who's main adversaries include trumped up military officials or a cocky fascist fighter pilot. If the character is young then they will represent a chubby child, and may be subject to bullying if they are sympathetic characters, or be bullies if they are non-sympathetic. In fantasy stories heroic pig Men will typically be a turncoats who have defected from an evil force. For this reason they may go threw ostracization or racial stigmatization.Tragic is the story of the PigMan [[DefectorFromDecadence who escapes his evil masters]] and tries to live a human life; they'll usually be [[TheGrotesque outcasts who will never know what it's like to be loved]].
