* 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.
