Wizpig is a gigantic alien pig and the main villain of the game Diddy Kong Racing. Not much of Wizpig's past is known, what is known though is that Wizpig, bored, decided to conquer his own planet. Succeeding, Wizpig transformed his homeworld into a high-tech amusement park called Future Fun Land. Eventually Wizpig once again, grew bored and decided to leave his planet to look for thrills on other inhabited worlds. One of the thrills Wizpig discovered was racing. This sport eventually became Wizpig's favorite thing to do, with causing chaos.

Flying overhead the various racers.

From then on, Wizpig caused trouble, racing those who challenged him. Eventually Wizpig wound up on Timber's Island, a neighbor of Donkey Kong Island, here he set to work. First Wizpig usurped Taj the Genie. Then, Wizpig turned Drumstick into a frog when Drumstick tried to challenge Wizpig.

Timber, the son of the island's owners and his friend Diddy Kong, gained all the pieces to Wizpig's amulet, which allowed them to challenge Wizpig. After they beat Wizpig, Wizpig teleported away. With Wizpig gone, the heroes celebrated. This party was cut short by Wizpig. Transporting himself and an opponent to Future Fun Land, Wizpig demanded a re-match.

After a race consisting of dodging robots, electric fences, and lasers, the heroes once again beat Wizpig. After his defeat, the rocket Wizpig was riding malfunctioned, stranding Wizpig on a deserted planet.

Wizpig also appeared in Diddy Kong Racing's Nintendo DS remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS, retaining his role as the final boss and main antagonist, as well as being an unlockable playable character. His stats in Diddy Kong Racing DS are the same as Taj. He was shrunk to fit in a car. Wizpig is unlocked by completing Adventure Mode 2.
