Rogue-Hog is a member of the Hog species that Donkey Kong must fight in Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. It is the ruler of the Watermelon Kingdom and is fought in a desert canyon-like setting, which is part of its kingdom. Rogue-Hog resembles a hog with brown skin, four horns, yellow eyes, a snout, and a magenta mohawk. Its name is a pun off the word "road-hog".

Its attacks consist of throwing fruit and spiky fruit, the latter of which Donkey Kong must avoid, and swiping at Donkey Kong with its silver hooves if he is too close to it. Donkey Kong must stop the normal fruit thrown in midair by Rogue-Hog and then punch them back at it.
