Horkus Porkus (also known as Phil) is an enemy in the Smithsnorian Museum in Wario: Master of Disguise. It is the statue of a god who can look straight into the heart of all men. Due to a tragic spelling error, most people call him "Phil" as said in the game. To defeat this statue, Wario must jump on it multiple times. Three of these statues appear in the game.

The statue's design is that of a man with a bird's head, which is very reminicent of the way in which Horus the falcon-headed god is depicted in ancient Egyptian mythology, as is the overall statue motif. Horkus Porkus' name comes from the phrase "Hocus Pocus", which refers to magic.
