Half hog

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Half hog is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past.


Hellish half-man, half-hogs that hammer at combatants with clunky crushing clubs, snorting and huffing the whole time. They have pink skin and wear white shirts with a cresent moon design and white mawashis. The Half hog holds its breath within its huge nostrils in order to save up strength to double up on attacks. They can also snort out a massive sandstorm of dust that can blind all battlers and prevent them seeing straight when attacking. Its name is a pun based on the English idiom "go the whole hog", which means to do something as entirely or completely as possible with no reservations.
