The Fiery Blowhog (ブタドックリ?, lit.: "Tokkuri Pig") is a relative of the Watery Blowhog. As its name would imply, it shoots fire from its red snout. Fiery Blowhogs are common enemies in Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3, (despite being smaller than in the first game) but are only found in The Forest Navel in Pikmin. When provoked by Pikmin, Fiery Blowhogs will buck them off into an area in front of them and shoot fire. In Pikmin, it can be extremely difficult to save burning Pikmin, but blowing the whistle within the area of the Blowhog's attack will ensure that any Pikmin caught in the flames will instantly be extinguished.
They also have lightly colored segments that can barely be seen in the games, but they can be seen in the concept art and other photos. These become more obvious in Pikmin 3.

Nintendo Player's Guide
"Among the most common creatures in the Pikmin 2 landscape are the groundbased Blowhogs, both Firey and Watery. You can distinguish the Firey Blowhogs by the red markings at the end of their snouts and by the flames that they spit at your leaders and troops. Attack their backs with red Pikmin."
Pikmin 3 Prima Guide
"A Fiery Blowhog attacks by shooting flames out of its snout. When you encounter a Fiery Blowhog, use your Red Pikmin to attack the creature without suffering any casualties. If your squad contains only a small amount of Red Pikmin, use them to distract the Fiery Blowhog, then flank the creature and have your more vulnerable Pikmin charge from the rear."
The following article or section contains guides.
Red Pikmin are recommended, but if you're careful, it can be taken out with any type of Pikmin. To start off, throw a single Pikmin directly onto the Fiery Blowhog (preferably a leaf Pikmin so it doesn't get deflowered). Immediately after the Blowhog throws the Pikmin off, swarm it with the entire group. If it is evident that it will survive this attack, call back the Pikmin swarming it before they can get knocked off, then re-swarm the Blowhog. Repeat until it's dead. Pikmin that are swarming a Fiery Blowhog cannot be ignited, meaning they're safe from its attack. You could also leave a group of Reds near a Fiery Blowhog, (recommended leaf), and they cannot be killed, unless the Fiery Blowhog bucks them into water. Make sure you make the Blowhog faces away from any water sources.
The same strategy described above works equally well here and since they are easier to kill in Pikmin 2, a large Pikmin group can swarm it right away for the kill. Obviously, throwing Purple Pikmin on it will deal serious damage to the Blowhog, as well as rendering unable to buck the Pikmin off, or breathe fire.
The strategy described for the first game works just fine still, only you don't need to take as much caution, since Pikmin cannot be deflowered by the bucking attack now. This means that unless a Blowhog can potentially buck them into water, it poses virtually no threat to red Pikmin. Henceforth, to save time, its easy to just leave a small group of red Pikmin attack a Fiery Blowhog, go off and accomplish some other task, and by the time you return, the creature should be dead, and all your Pikmin should be fine. Or if you have a large army of red Pikmin, just send them all charging at the creature and it will be dead within a few seconds. If it manages to buck them all off, just whistle them back and repeat the process. You can be particularly careless if you've obtained the Scorch Guard upgrade, prevent your leaders from being damaged by the fire.
If no red Pikmin are available, take caution and attack from the rear. Whistle the Pikmin off every time the Blowhog begins to buck and repeat the process to take it out without much of a problem. If any clovers are nearby, this process becomes even easier, and you can lose its attention to get a shot at the rear.

The name "Fiery" is, of course, due to its ability to spit out fire. In Japan, it is known as the ブタドックリ?, which translates to "Tokkuri Pig". "Pig" part comes from its body shape and the sounds it makes. Its scientific name is Sus draconus; draconis is Latin for "dragon", once again referencing its ability to spit fire. Internally, the creature is called
tank in all games; the reasoning behind this name is unknown.

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 3.
- Fiery and Watery Blowhogs are one of the few Pikmin enemies to have a figurine modeled after them.
- Fiery Blowhogs are one of the enemies that can be rolled on the roulette wheel in 2-Player Battle.
- In Pikmin 2, an orange liquid can be seen dripping from the Blowhog's snout, right after it spits fire.
- By standing really close to a Fiery Blowhog in Pikmin 2, it will rotate to face the leader, but will never actually attack. Instead, it will endlessly repeat its rotation animation. This happens with the Watery Blowhog as well.
- Again in Pikmin 2, Fiery Blowhogs always turn left when roaming about idly.
