Red-Tusked Boars are stocky species of Boar with hunched backs and rotund abdomens. They are quadrupeds that walk on muscular legs, each one ending in a cloven hoof. Their bodies are covered in black fur, with the abdomens and heads being a lighter shade than the darker legs, haunches, tails, and ears. Spots appear down the back of the same muddy color mane rises from the Red-Tusked Boars' shoulders and furry ruffs extend from their cheeks. Their eyes are small and beady. Red-Tusked Boars' snouts are long and narrow, and are used to dig through the ground when grazing. Short crimson tusks poke out of their mouths, which are used to defend themselves when charging at potential threats. Their tails are short and end in tufts of hair. Their tails stand up when they are startled.

Red-Tusked Boars are herbivorous swine that are considered to be significantly stronger than Woodland Boars.[2] When slain, Red-Tusked Boars produce Raw Prime Meat, but they are often quite skittish to approach and will flee once detected. Though uncommon, startled Red-Tusked Boars may charge at Link in defense if he is detected. Red-Tusked Boars will not charge at Link if he is on horseback.
