The Evil Pigs are the main antagonists of the series. They are anthropomorphic pigs who transform various areas of the world with their strange magic. They have an affinity for gold and use their subordinative pigs to hoard it for them. According to the 100 Year Old Wise Man, the Evil Pigs mysteriously appeared wearing large purple robes. The actual appearances of each Evil Pig are more fitting with their individual abilities.
The Evil Pigs reside in their areas, that can be accessed via the Evil Pig Gates which can only be summoned with specific Evil Pig Bags. Tomba uses these items to seal each Evil Pig within, lifting the curse on an area in which the captured Evil Pig was responsible. There are eight Evil Pigs in the first game and six in the second game. In the second game, Tomba can use the magical powers of the defeated Evil Pigs if he wears the Evil Pig Robes.
