Perverted Pig

Go To
He really wants to pork.
Piggy met Baby in a disco bar
Baby said, "What a cute little piggy you are"
When he took one look at her rocket tits
He smiled real wide and said, "Baby, you're it"
—"Piggies", Oingo Boingo

Sometimes, pig characters are portrayed as dirty, in the physical sense of the word. But sometimes, it's their mind and morals that are filthy. It usually happens when the character is an anthropomorphic pig, rather than a more realistic one.

This trope stems from the human tendency to associate bodily cleanness with purity of mind and soul. Therefore pigs, who are often stereotyped as messy animals, are often thought of as lecherous, perverted and promiscuous. Sometimes that results in nothing more than a fondness of dirty jokes and comments; in other cases, the pig may go much further.

This trope is also in effect when perverted human characters are characterized as being pig-like or consistently compared to pigs. Note, that this does not mean just being called a "pig" as an insult by other characters; the work itself has to make the comparison either in character depiction or theming.

Orcs in most Standard Japanese Fantasy Settings are pig-based, taking after older Dungeons & Dragons concept art. They are also commonly depicted as lusting after and/or capturing the women of "weaker" species like humans and elves to mate with.

This trope is almost predominantly male, but female examples are not unheard of.

For a trope about pigs being literally dirty, see Messy Pig. Compare Brainy Pig, Full-Boar Action, Gluttonous Pig, Housepet Pig, and Sinister Swine for other pig Tropes.

    Anime and Manga 
  • Onigiri from Air Gear is a noted lech who (at first) is absolutely reviled by every female character because of his perverted ways and is often likened to a pig, by friends and foe alike. However, his perversion works to his immense benefit because his depravity allows him to be the only rider of the Smell Road, a road that utilizes his sweat to cause illusions and distort enemies' ability to ride. Notably, this only works against female riders: whereas Onigiri's battle level is normally below average, against female riders his level rises to that of a King. His battle shadow is always some version of a giant decorated war hog.
  • Oolong the little Pig Man from Dragon Ball is dirty in mind if not in body. It is even mentioned that Oolong was expelled from kindergarten for stealing his teacher's underwear. When he briefly turns into Bulma, the first thing he does is cop a feel on himself, much to Bulma's dismay.

  • Qwerpline enforces this trope in episode 14, "High and Dry", where the old Nsburg farmers' market is hosting the Big Pig F**k-off. Initially a cooperative breeding initiative among Therpston county farmers to promote strong stock among their pig drifts, it evolved into a "much beloved annual family event and betting opportunity" as to which hog will sire the most heirs.

    Puppet Shows 
  • Miss Piggy in The Muppet Show is sometimes a Rare Female Example.

  • Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair: Downplayed with Teruteru, as his character model (short, chubby, notably pinker skin tone than the other students, small black beady eyes, and an off-model circular round nose) more suggests the characteristics of a pig rather than outright evokes them and he isn't directly compared to a pig in game, but add this to his Lovable Sex Maniac and The Chikan nature and he fits the bill.
