The Pork Trooper (コワモテブタマスク Kowamote Butamasuku lit. "Scary Look Pigmask") is a high-ranking soldier in the Pigmask Army (although there are many higher-ranked members), and fights against Lucas and friends twice during the game. He can also be seen at any DCMC concerts Lucas and co. go to.
Like all Pigmasks, he is a fan of DCMC, and using DCMC goods on him during the battle will distract him. His weakness is comparable to Master Belch's addiction to fly honey in EarthBound, as both the Pork Trooper and Belch are susceptible enough to their respective weaknesses to completely drop their guard in battle, as well as fight the main characters twice.
The Pork Trooper has two different battle sprites that are encountered within the normal game. When he attacks Lucas and friends on the Highway, he wears a standard pink uniform, albeit augmented with horns and less customized armor that covers his monolithic figure. When he is encountered by the party the second time in Thunder Tower, he admits he has prepared for them by donning his true battle suit. Colored blue, his battle suit resembles that of a Pigmask Captain's uniform, although it once again uses the same customizations as his standard suit. It also has longer horns and steel plating protecting his hands.
Unused FormEditHe has an unused third form, although there is no proper sprite for it, and it appears as a black square. It gives 2820 experience points.
- The second time you fight the Pork Trooper, he refers to being in his "Handle With Care" time. This is a reference to the song, "Handle With Care", by the Traveling Wilburys, a band who included famous Beatles member, George Harrison.
