First appearance Wario Land 4 (2001)
“This is one filthy little pig! He comes flying in from the sky dropping little pigs on you!! He brags about being a great painter, but trust me–his personality is anything but great! I know, because I'm so charming, right?! Whatever!! I just wish he'd wear pants!! It's only polite, don't you think?!”
Wario, Wario Land 4 instruction booklet

Hoggus[1] is an enemy that appears in Wario Land 4. He appears only once, as a common enemy in the level Doodle Woods. Hoggus resembles a humanoid pig, but instead of having feet, Hoggus has a wispy tail similar to a ghost, much like the bosses in Wario Land 4 (except for Spoiled Rotten). Hoggus wears a white shirt and a red hat and can be always seen with his paintbrush and sketch block.

In the outer areas of Doodle Woods, Hoggus is flying around and paints two different types of pigs on his sketchbook which come to life. They are smaller than Hoggus and don't have a ghostly appearance. The first type is named Denden and wears a spiky shell and rolls after Wario in an attempt to attack him. The second type, known as Butatabi, has a spike on its head and floats from right to left and inversely. Both can be defeated by Wario.

The painter himself doesn't harm Wario, but is also invincible. Hoggus always flies away when Wario gets into one of the caves of Doodle Woods. Hoggus always makes a sad face when his sketches come to life, as if he just wanted to show his art rather than attack Wario.

Hoggus can also be seen in one of the many pictures shown in the ending sequence of Wario Land 4. There, he is drawing in a book along with Wario, indicating the two may have become friends.

In Super Mario-Kun, Hoggus appears in a bigger role as being an ally of Wario.
