Pigs appear as enemies in Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. There are several different varieties of Pigs. What appears to be their snout is actually their face, with their eyes in the "nostrils". They appear to be closely related to Oinkers.


Eyelid Pig

Eyelid Pigs (or simply Eyelids) are the most basic of the pigs. They are cowardly and will run away from Tingle if they see him. They are found in Hometown Prairie and Cape Treasure. They may drop Minced Meat or Short Fur when defeated.

Flying Pig

Gold Pig

Gold Pig TRR.png Gold Pigs are a rare variant of the Eyelid Pig who appear in Cape Treasure. They drop 500 Rupees when defeated.

Diver Pig

Snorkel Pig.png Diver Pigs are found in the Steamy Marsh and will run away from Tingle if they see him. They may drop Baby Sharks or Pink Quartz when defeated.

Flaming Pig

Flaming Pig TRR.png Flaming Pigs are an aggressive enemy found on Mount Desma. Tingle must throw a bottle of water onto them to be able to attack them. They may drop Marbled Meat or Gold Gem when defeated.


The Japanese name for these enemies generally consist of puns on the word ブタ (Buta), meaning "pig." For example, Eyelid Pigs are known as マブタ (Mabuta), meaning "Eyelids," while Diver Pigs are known as ダイブタ (Daibuta), a combination of Buta and ダイバー (Daibā), meaning "diver."
