All that is known of Wizpig's past is that he decided to attempt to conquer his own planet out of boredom. He succeeded, and transformed his homeworld into a high-tech amusement park called Future Fun Land. Eventually, Wizpig once again grew bored, and decided to leave his planet to look for excitement on other inhabited worlds. One of the thrills Wizpig discovered was the sport of racing. This sport eventually became Wizpig's favorite thing to do, along with causing chaos.
Diddy Kong Racing / Diddy Kong Racing DS
In Diddy Kong Racing and Diddy Kong Racing DS, Wizpig eventually reached Timber's Island, a neighbor of Donkey Kong Island, where he would start another reign of chaos. First, he usurped Taj the Genie. Next, he turned Drumstick into a frog when he tried to challenge Wizpig. He also managed to hypnotize Tricky the Triceratops, Bluey the Walrus, Bubbler the Octopus, and Smokey the Dragon into becoming his servants, giving each of them a Wizpig Amulet piece to guard.
Timber, the son of the island's owners, and his friend Diddy Kong set out on a quest to retrieve all the pieces of Wizpig's amulet, allowing them to challenge Wizpig in a race. After he loses, he teleports away. With Wizpig seemingly defeated, Diddy Kong and friends celebrate, but their party is cut short by Wizpig suddenly reappearing. Transporting himself and one opponent to Future Fun Land, Wizpig demands a rematch.
After beating Wizpig in this second race, the rocket he is riding on malfunctions, sending him to a deserted planet, where he becomes stranded and is never heard from again.
In Diddy Kong Racing DS, Wizpig is now a playable character, unlocked by completing Adventure Mode 2. His stats are identical to those of Taj. His playable form is also made smaller to fit the vehicles properly.
Mario no Bōken Land
Wizpig appears as the main villain of the Diddy Kong Racing story segment of Mario no Bōken Land, titled "Go Go Diddy!". He attacks Taj the Genie during a race, ripping up the carpet he was riding, which strips Taj of his magical powers, beforing escaping. Mario, Princess Peach and Diddy Kong ride on airplanes to follow Wizpig, but he launches a bomb which hits Mario and Peach. Diddy Kong avoids the attack, and Wizpig follows it up with a missile, which he also avoids. Diddy manages to bury Wizpig under a pile of rocks, trapping him underneath. While Diddy Kong and his friends celebrate Wizpig's defeat, the last panel shows Taj offering to help Wizpig out of the rocks if he promises to not do any more bad actions.
