Needlehog is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is a stronger version of Gatlinghog, and fights in the same manner. It is advised to kill it in one shot, otherwise it will counterattack with its Needles ability. In addition, they will constantly use Needles when left alone and there are no other enemy types in the battle except other Needlehogs. Otherwise, they are not much of a threat to the player.
