Gale Hawgs are pig enemies found in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are red with darker red engravings on their bodies and commonly appear in front of tunnels or near pits. They 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. A Gale Hawg can be defeated by using a sound wave, and then repeatedly punching it while it is dazed. They have numerous relatives in the game, with Mini Pig Poppos and Sleep Pig Poppos being more basic and encountered earlier, and Kiba Pig Poppos, Fire Pig Poppos, and the Boss Pig Poppo being more dangerous and encountered later. Gale Hawg later reappears in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a sticker. In New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, they and some of their relatives are redesigned to have large tusks.
