Sprite from Super Paper Mario
First appearance Super Paper Mario (2007)

The Pigarithm is an enemy in Super Paper Mario. Its name is a play on "pig" and "logarithm". The Pigarithm is made up of three green piggy banks connected to one another. Each time it is attacked, one of the piggy banks is removed, making it smaller and faster. When the last one is destroyed, the player earns a large amount of coins. They appear in the Whoa Zone and the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials.

Tattle This bizarre beast is called a Pigarithm. Everything about it is just...odd... Max HP is ??. Attack is 2. It takes three stomps to finish off this piggy... But each stomp makes it smaller and faster... It's very hard to stomp the last one... Pigarithms often drop many coins, so you may want to hunt them if you're broke...
