Role in Subspace Emissary
When Lucas walks alone in The Ruined Zoo, a giant statue of Porky Minch appears and begins chasing him through the zoo, attempting to crush him. At the end of the scene, Lucas gets his leg stuck under a root and is about to be hit by the Statue, when Ness appears to Lucas's rescue, destroying the statue by using PK Thunder and PK Flash. It reveals Porky inside his spider-like bed machine, and the boys battle him. Ness and Lucas defeat Porky and destroy the machine. His appearance in Brawl is outside the Mother series' canon.
