The Pig King can be found in one of the Pig Villages that generally spawn on a Grassland patch or in a Forest biome. He is usually lying on Wooden Flooring surrounded by Obelisks and may be guarded by Guardian Pigs if playing in Adventure Mode. He is immune to any damage and cannot be attacked.

During the day, the player can make offerings to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets. At night, the Pig King goes to sleep and cannot be traded with. He will not hold any grudge towards the player if they kill his fellow pigs or even his Guardian Pigs.

Adventure ModeEdit

Unlike in Sandbox Mode, worlds may have different chances of encountering the Pig King based on the specific world's individual rules.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Meats that are not accepted by the King can be converted into Eggs by a bird in a Birdcage, and then offered to the King. This makes gold an infinite resource if there is a Pig King spawned in the world, as meat is a renewable resource in the game.
  • The Pig King will throw the gold towards the player's camera. Turning the camera will cause the gold to land in a different place.

Mosquito BugsEdit

  • Sometimes, the Pig King does not spawn in Sandbox Mode because there is not enough space for its Set Piece to be created during the world generation.
