Donkey Kong prepares to battle a Hog
|First appearance||Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (2005)|
|Latest appearance||New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (2008)|
Hogs are a variety of pigs that appear as bosses in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. They are all kings of the various kingdoms that Donkey Kong must face throughout his adventure. They can generate electric orbs from their hands, blast out shock-waves of electricity, and teleport all over the place. To beat them, Donkey Kong must send the fruit they send out, back at them, by punching it back. This will stun them for a while and decrease their health. Then, he must jump on the Hog and punch it many times.
The Coco Pig is another anthropomorphic pig with a similar attack pattern. Additionally, the internal name of the Hogs, "Goro Pig," is similar to that of Coco Pig.
