Transforms target to Pig or restores state.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
On the Easy Type version, the casting time was reduce to 1 and increase the base hit rate to 40%.
The Pig status disables the following commands: Summon, Darkness, Recall, Aim, Focus, Kick, Brace, Twincast, Bluff, Cry, Analyze, and Regen. It also disables all magic including monster magic other than the Black Magic spell Pig. White Magic users can still cast Esuna, but only outside of battle. In the PSP version the menu portrait for child Rydia, Palom, and Porom is a little different compared to the adult portrait featuring a piglet.
The Pig status severely reduces the afflicted unit's Attack power. It can be cured by using the Diet Food item. In addition, the Polymorph Rod staff may inflict the Pig status on one or all enemies when used as an item. The Piglet's Bamboo Sword in the Easy Type version has a chance of inflicting the Pig status when attacking. In the GBA and PSP release, the Piggy's Stick (GBA), Hog Call (PSP), and Pig's Bamboo Sword (The After Years) are a homage to the Piglet's Bamboo Sword that first appeared in the Easy Type version.
Pig is learned by Rydia (level 20) and initially by Fusoya, Palom, and Biggs. The Polymorph Rod makes a return, along with it the Queen's Whip can turn enemies into Pig when attacking. There is also an unused weapon called Pig's Bamboo Sword.
The Band ability, Call Me Queen, can transform one enemy into a pig.
