Pigs are foe, foil, and fodder for the angriest of birds inhabiting Bird Island. These green creatures are known for their persistence and insistence on meddling with affairs beyond their ken, most importantly the ancient history of the Island and the Anger inherent to the Bird condition.
In game terms, they are the hapless sacks of bacon you face off against, smacking them with your birds into oblivion. Each pig belongs to a weight category - small, medium, large, and huge (with huge guts!) - and a faction, from the ubiquitous basics to event-specific ones.
These pigs represent the masses of pig tourists flooding Bird Island through Bacon Coast. They take massive cruise ships to the pristine island to enjoy the sights and history, usually on tour buses organized by Bacon Travels. Sometimes they meet angry locals (who they view with innocent curiosity) and it ends kind of badly for them.
In gameplay terms, they're a Simple "all-round" faction with a lot of easy to understand skills, since these guys are used early. Connected more through appearance and theme than complex skill synergies.

Angry Pigs (BACON HEADZ)
These pigs represent the poor wretches who have been drinking too much Bacon Juice, the new energy drink Bacon Industries have been distilling from chemicals discovered in their research efforts into Bird anger. Because of the untested and experimental nature of the drink, these pigs have begun to mutate and are much more twitchy and prone to mood swings than average piggies. This also makes them very dangerous opponents.
Angry pigs have abilities that enrage other pigs. Enraged pigs (ALL sorts!) deal more damage, enraged Angry Pigs ALSO have special attack boosts described in their attacks. After attacking, an enraged pig calms down again.
These pigs represent the staff and security at Bacon Corporation. They mainly reside in the north at the Bacon Coast resort and do most of Don Bacon’s dirty work for him. They have excellent healthcare and benefits packages.
Corpspigs are divided into two teams:
Security troops include SWAT teams and agents. They are defensive, carrying shields and use "command" abilities, affecting all nearby guys.
Science staff use a lot of crazy robots and contraptions which are boosted by pigs or which boost pigs' attacks in return.
Shoots his Taser at the birds, dealing light damage. Electricity arcs from the Taser to nearby robots and increases their speed movement for 1 turn.
Constantly moves around the battlefield in different directions in real time.
The high seas belong to the pigs, who have mastered the art of seafaring long ago. While most pigs are content in just being on a boat, some of the more entrepreneurial types have taken up piracy and sail between the two islands, grabbing booty and playing with explosives. They are masters of different types of bombs and can serve up very nasty surprises in combat if they manage to work together.
The re-occurring Color events use completely new pigs which are recolored for each of the primary colors. They are part of the BACON CORP subgroup. These pigs represent the excavation teams Bacon Corp has dispatched to Bird Island to uncover more bird artifacts for their anger research.
All of these pigs have colored parts which represent the currently running color month. These parts are re-colored for other months i.e. there’s a Collector of Red, Collector of Blue etc).
Throws his remote at the birds, dealing light damage.
Envelops him in a shield for 2 turns that only his color birds can penetrate. Reduces damage dealt by all other birds.
These pigs are used for the Alien Invasion event. They represent random tourists that have been taken by the aliens and taken aboard the mothership for bizarre and uncomfortable medical experiments. Most of the abductee pigs are later returned back to where they were taken from where other pigs laugh at their wild stories. The origin and plans of the aliens remain unknown for now.
These pigs are trying to ruin the Super Bowl. They are a part of the Basic subgroup.
These Warner pigs are used for the Cartoon event they love to throw shot etc attacking.
These pigs are for the artist event. They are funny and goofy and silly.
