Species Hog

Gloat-Hog is a member of the Hog species that Donkey Kong must fight in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. It is the ruler of the Pear Kingdom and also the last and strongest of the species to face.

Gloat-Hog appears as a pig-like bipedal creature with black skin, white eyes, and a grey Mohawk, hooves, and tusks.

Its attacks consist of throwing fruit and durian in two different speeds. It also shoots balls of electricity at Donkey Kong, and can fly right toward him and slash. If Donkey Kong gets too close, Gloat-Hog will slash him. Donkey Kong must stop the fruit it throws in midair and then punch them back at Gloat-Hog. After losing one third of its health, Gloat-Hog begins to move between platforms quickly while attempting to perform a quick slash at Donkey Kong if he gets close enough.
