"Press (B) while jumping to preform a ground pound, which can hammer down posts and break brittle blocks." - In-Game Description

Pounding Pig allows the wearer to perform a ground pound while jumping using the action button midair. It also can flutter for a little bit while in air.


Pounding Pig is a round, bipedal pig. It is mainly cream colored, with a deep teal on the tips of its hands/hooves, top of head, and a stripe around its torso. It has a slight under-bite, revealing two small tusks, and it wears pink "pants" along with a belt with a pig's noise on it. It's shorter than most other characters, and when Emma or Leo wears the Pounding Pig costume, they seem to shrink in size as well.


The Pounding Pig Costume is found in Chapter 1 - Act 2. It's along the main pathway of the Act, with a Key nearby, so there should be little difficulty in finding it.

The Costume is also found in Barktholomew's boss fight (Chapter 1 - Boss Act.) As one of the provided Costumes.
