Pigs are animals in The Wind Waker.


Pigs are generally peaceful animals that struggle in vain when picked up. They come in three varieties: pink, black, and pink with black spots. The easiest way to pick up a Pig is to sneak up to it. An alternative is to chase it into the water and wait for it to come back to shore, where Link can pick it up before it starts running away. Pigs love to eat, and if they are fed All-Purpose Bait, they might dig into the ground and release some Rupees and items. If a Pig is attacked too many times, it turns red in anger and relentlessly retaliates against Link. If there are any nearby Pigs, they will also attack him, much like the Cucco's Revenge Squad. The Pigs will stop chasing Link if he enters a building or goes to a place where they can't reach him, like on top of a high object or in a body of water. While a Pig is charging after Link, it will destroy any grass, Pots and enemies in its way.

Before Link visits the Forsaken Fortress for the first time, the young hero can assist Abe and capture a Pig for his wife, Rose, who will thank him with 20 Rupees after it is placed in their pen. Link can capture the two other Pigs on Outset Island and receive additional increments of 20 Rupees for each of them. When Link returns to Outset Island after placing all three Pigs in the pen, the young hero will find that only one, large Pig is present. If Link speaks to Rose and her children, they will imply that they ate the two other pigs.[1] The remaining Pig is named after Link, and it can be provoked as well, dealing three Hearts of damage if Link is hit by it. After Link has obtained the Power Bracelets, the young hero can pick the Pig up and carry it, but his walking will be inhibited as though he is wearing the Iron Boots.

Wild Pigs are found primarily in the fields of Outset Island. They love All-Purpose Bait above all other foods, and when they eat it they can't help but tear into the earth.

Trophy Information

The Wind Waker Cute creatures that roam the land. They are usually pink or black but are also sometimes patterned or even miniature. Perhaps due to their timid natures, they tend to run away when approached. To catch them, you need to creep towards them ever so slowly. Throwing them in the water will reveal that they can swim back to the shore, not by "doggy-paddling" but by "piggy-paddling". Random
