From the Super Mario Wiki
The Hogs are a sub-species of Hawg that appear as bosses in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are all kings of the various kingdoms. Donkey Kong must face various hogs throughout his adventure. They are huge, ugly, savage warthogs. They can generate electric orbs from their hands, blast out shock-waves of electricity, and teleport all over the place. To beat them, Donkey Kong must send the fruit they send out, back at them, by punching it back. This will stun the hog for a while. Them Donkey Kong must jump on the hog and smash it various times.
There are 4 known types of Hog: Rogue Hog, Mo-Hog, Bloat-Hog, and Gloat-Hog.
- All four Hogs have large Mohawks, which are all different colors.
- Hog may be related to a type of Hawg due to the same behavior as one of its sub-species.
