"He he he he he! I'm hungry!"

"Whoa! Whoa!"

Pudgy Pig was a ravenous pig monster who served as the main antagonist of the episode "Food Fight."

To this day, Pudgy Pig is considered arguably among the most well known monsters in the whole franchise, alongside others such as King Sphinx and the Pumpkin Rapper.


Pudgy Pig is created by Finster after Rita asks him for a pig capable of consuming all of the food on Earth. Finster stated that pig is not his best work before Rita then sends him to Earth where he attacks the Angel Grove Youth Center which is holding a foot festival for charity. Pudgy Pig possesses an insatiable appetite and is bent on consuming abnormal amounts of food. Zordon counts that he could eat all food on Earth in forty eight hours. The Pudgy Pig eventually finds his way onto a rooftop where he encounters the Rangers. However, they cannot defeat him and he swallows their Power Weapons before sending them into a vortex which spits them out unmorphed in Angel Grove Park. Disgraced, the Rangers are worried that they will be unable to destroy him but they see he did not like spicy food as he did not touch it on the Festival when they return there. They then find out that he has been seen in the industrial district so they morph and deploy there with an arsenal of food, Trini holding a spicy radish. They trick him with some regular food before putting the radish into a sandwich which he ate. The resulting reaction makes him puke up all of the food and the Power Weapons and also causing his sides to cave in. Now re-armed, the Rangers take down Pudgy Pig with a series of slashes from their Power Weapons, Jason landing the final blow with his Power Sword, and use the Power Blaster to destroy Pudgy Pig who falls flat on his back before exploding. For whatever reason, Rita decided not to enlarge Pudgy Pig. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Food Fight


Some time later when the Rangers are sent to the Island of Illusion, they are assaulted by illusions of monsters they had already defeated, including Pudgy Pig. But they disappear and do not harm anyone. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Island of Illusion

Powers and Abilities


  • Whirling Vortex: Pudgy Pig could fire a white vortex from his nostrils that can demorph the Rangers and send them back to the Youth Center.
  • Inhale: Pudgy Pig could inhale the Power Weapons in order to bring the Rangers closer to him, and then eat them.


  • Strength: Despite his comical aptitude, Pudgy Pig possessed a formidable amount of strength, capable of taking the Rangers with single slashes of his trotters to each of them.
  • Durability: Pudgy Pig was mostly unfazed by the Power Weapons within him didn't injure him and it took jump strikes from all five of the Power Weapons just to knock him down.
  • Unlimited Appetite: Pudgy Pig was always hungry and ready to eat anything.
  • Consumption: Pudgy Pig could eat anything, including a bin and the Power Weapons.


  • Spicy Food: Pudgy Pig could eat anything except for spicy foods. This was due to having a colossally weak stomach that made him vomit up his meals and collapsed his sides inwards to crippling effect.


  • Trotters: Pudgy Pig had razor sharp trotters sharp enough to use in combat to slash his enemies with.
  • Giant utensils: Though not used in battle, Pudgy Pig had a large fork and knife with him.

Behind the Scenes


  • Pudgy Pig was voiced by Dave Mallow who gave him a similar voice to that of the Twin Man (despite the latter having apparently been voiced by Bryan Cranston and not Mallow).


  • He is based on a pig and wears a helmet based on Trojan warriors.


  • His alliterative name alludes to his gluttonous nature and that he is a big.


  • Neither version of Pudgy Pig or their counterpart used the giant knife and fork seen above. They were only seen when the original was created and then never seen again.
  • Pudgy Pig was one of two Megazord bosses in the Tiger Electronics Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers LCD game. The other is Turkey Jerk.
