** Fygars can fit the bell as well, due to them being the only enemy other than Pookas to appear in every game of the series.

''Dig Dug'' is a DiggingGame by Namco, first released as an ArcadeGame in 1982. The objective of the game is for your player (initially just named "Dig Dug", but later changed to Taizo Hori - see PunnyName below) to dig underground and eliminate all of the monsters on each stage using a special pressure pump to inflate them to bursting. You can also dig out the dirt beneath buried rocks to drop them on enemies. There are two types of foes: Pookas, somewhat harmless round things that bounce around and go about their business, and Fygars, dangerous dragons that can breathe fire. The further down you are when you kill one, the more points you'll receive. Throughout each level, you'll sometimes come across vegetables that will boost your score. The enemies can turn into ghosts and slowly work their way through the dirt to close in on you.

* EliteMook: Sequels added stronger variations of the Pooka and Frygar species, determined by [[PaletteSwap their color]]. Elite Pookas were either faster or required more pumps to burst, and Elite Frygars could shoot their flames upwards, with even stronger Frygars in ''Deeper'' that had longer and steerable fire.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The Frygars. The original ''Arrangement'' adds one more type of dragon that hurls fireballs, capable of digging through dirt.
* InvincibleMinorMinion: The Ghost Frygars in ''Digging Strike'', They cannot be popped (instead remaining at their biggest size), and dropping rocks on them only stuns them.

Taizo Hori himself appears in the turn-based strategy RPG ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'', his backstory portraying him as a [[RetiredBadass retired soldier]] who now works as a [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Digger]]. His ex-wife, [[MeaningfulName Toby]] [[InSeriesNickname "Kissy"]] [[SamusIsAGirl Masuyo]] from ''Baraduke'' (who is teamed up with ''Burning Force'''s Hiromi Tengenji), is also playable in the same game, [[WorkingWithTheEx still apparently holding a grudge against Taizo]]. The characters are respectively voiced by Creator/ToshioFurukawa (Taizo), Creator/YukoMizutani (Toby), and Creator/ChisaYokoyama (Hiromi).

* PopGoesTheHuman: Or in this case, the Pooka or the Fygar. The protagonist typically dispatches his adversaries by inflating them with air until they burst like a balloon. Played straight in the original ''Arrangement'' where an EvilKnockoff of Taizo exists, armed with it's own pump to inflate and explode Taizo with, and in two-player co-op, the two Taizos can do this to ''each other'', for 5,000 points for each betrayal.
