Pig (ブタ, Buta) is a Chimera Ant and former Drudge tasked with preparing the Queen's meals.[1]


He has the appearance of a large bipedal pig. He is seen wearing a chef's uniform and hat along with an apron.[1]


Not much is known about Pig's personality, though he was loyal and obedient towards the Chimera Ant Queen[1] and, once later, to the newly born Neferpitou,[2] even though the work he does for them was arduous and stressful.[1]


Chimera Ant arc

Peggy and Rammot approach and inquire Pig if he's recently found any rare humans. He answers no and adds that even if there were any he would have probably fed them to the Queen already, who currently consumes 250 meatballs a day.[1]

Under Neferpitou's orders, Pig butchers Pokkle, right after they finish torturing the subject.[2]


  • The character's name is only given by Madhouse for the 2011 anime adaptation (in the credits). His name is not in the manga.
    • He is referred to as ブタ型[3] (Buta-gata,[4] literally "Pig type").
      • In the credits for the English dub: "Pig".[3]
