Gale Hawgs (or Pig Poppos) are pig enemies found in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are red with darker red engravings on their bodies. They will attempt to prevent Donkey Kong from progressing to the goal by creating mild gales, as their name implies, or even blow Donkey Kong into another obstacle or enemy. Some Gale Hawgs have tusks, making them difficult to attack head-on. A Gale Hawg can be defeated by using a sound wave, and then repeatedly punching it while it is dazed. Gale Hawgs are fairly common in front of tunnels and near pits to make their gales a threat to the player. Like most large pig enemies, the Gale Hawg hurts the player if they collide with their tusks. Gale Hawg later reappears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a Sticker.
