* TheOtherWiki tells us of the legends of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pig-faced_women pig-faced women]], whose existence was believed as late as the early 19th century. In the typical versions of the story, a pig-faced woman is depicted as an otherwise fair, gentle and intelligent lady who happens to have been born with the head and voice of a pig, and thus can find no suitor.

* 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.
