The Tusked Blowhog (シシドックリ?, lit.: "Boar Tokkuri") is a boar-like enemy in Pikmin 4 that charges forward when provoked and eats Pikmin. Despite the name, Tusked Blowhogs are not of the blowhog family but a separate family, the aptly named tusked blowhog family.

A Tusked Blowhog typically wanders about in a small territory until something catches its attention. If it sees something, it will open its mouth while charging forward and eventually skidding to a halt. The charge will disrupt groups and launch Pikmin, Oatchi and the player character into the air. As it begins its charge, it can snatch up to three Pikmin and begin eating them after it stops moving. If it strays too far from its territory, it will begin walking back, ignoring attacks. Like Oatchi's rush, Tusked Blowhog charges destroy jars.


The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Care should be taken to not let the Tusked Blowhog disrupt the entire squad. It can only eat three Pikmin at a time, but can launch the leaders and other Pikmin into compromising situations. While the creature is unaware, charging it from behind with your Pikmin is effective. Charging from the front however, is ill-advised due to it launching everything in its path and puts the Pikmin in danger of being eaten. Throwing is generally safer, though as the Tusked Blowhog charges, most Pikmin will fall off. As with every creature, whistling Pikmin before it shakes them off is important.


Dalmo's Notes[edit]

Setting its unwavering sights on its target, it makes a ferocious mad dash at full speed. Even if you hit it really hard, you won't slow down this bold beastie. It single-mindedly carries through with an unwavering focus that inspires me to improve my focus on my own tasks.

Olimar's Notes[edit]

Similar to an ancestor species of the Fiery Blowhog, this creature has a pair of sharp tusks that it uses to charge enemies with vigorous violence. It demonstrates its aggressive nature when it pursues its prey and when it's attacked by a predator of its own. In the case of the latter, the Tusked Blowhog will attack its attacker, causing them to balk while it can dash away to safety.

This species also has an extremly sharp sense of smell, which it uses to detect the pheromone-like scent of its favourite food-underground mushrooms.

Louie's Notes[edit]

Stew with root veggies, wild greens, and a bit of miso for a mouthwatering and rustic flavour. Drain all the blood beforehand to avoid that gamy smell.


  • Common name: Tusked Blowhog. It resembles other grounded Blowhogs, and indeed has two tusks jutting out.
  • Japanese nickname: シシドックリ?, lit.: "Boar Tokkuri". シシ? is short for イノシシ? (lit.: "wild boar").
  • Japanese name: ハイイロシシドックリ?, lit.: "Gray Boar Tokkuri".
  • Scientific name: Sus magdentum. Likely a portmanteau of "magnum", big in Latin, and "dentis" or "dentes", Latin for "tusks" or "teeth".

  • Prerelease: None.
