Final Fantasy Wiki

A strangely endearing monster that resembles a domestic pig. Unlike a normal pig, however, it walks on two feet.


Pigs in Final Fantasy Tactics are bipedal hog monsters who are more of a gag than actual threats. However, they are not totally harmless, as they possess a multitude of status effect-inflicting abilities and are even capable of reviving dead units. All of their stats are inferior to any other monster, except for their evasion. Pigs tend to spend most of the battle retreating to a corner, away from the players' units. Their abilities' namesakes are quite hilarious, and can cause several status effects. However, their fragility makes them impractical pawns in battle. The main use of Pig monster is to poach them, as they all provide rare and invaluably useful items.


Rank I
Pig (Uribo)

Pigs don't appear very often, and have no real effect on the battle. They can replace a Red Chocobo in a main mission, a situation advantageous to the player.

Rank II
Swine (Porky)

Swine are even rarer than Pigs. Note their second ability and its effect.

Rank III
Wild Boar (Wildbow)

Wild Boars can only be obtained by capturing a Pig or a Swine and breeding them. Their "Bequeath Bacon" ability can help units level up by sacrificing the pig, but rebreeding the Wild Boars is too time-consuming for this tactic to be of any use. However, in The War of The Lions if you are training the Onion Knight, feeding them with the Wild Boars is the only way to level them up. This ability cannot be used to level up Onion Knights in the iOS version of the game, but it can be used to unlock jobs more quickly.

Despite their name, Wild Boars never appear in the wild, but only through breeding.
