Hello, my name is Thunderpig. You ate my father with cheese and mustard, open-faced on a whole-wheat baguette. Prepare to die!

– Thunderpig to Ben.[1]

Thunderpig is an alien[DJW 1] villain who appears in Omniverse.


Thunderpig's appearance is very similar to a warthog. He has a nose ring. He wears a purple and black leotard with a belt with a mark that looks like a silhouette of warthog. He also has purple and black boots and gloves, which are both fingerless and toeless.


Thunderpig is incredibly vengeful, occasionally coming after Ben because he assumed that Ben ate his father. Of course, Ben assumes that Thunderpig is not very intelligent and quickly comes to conclusions.[2][1]



Thunderpig first appeared in The More Things Change: Part 2 as a member of Psyphon's Gang only to be instantly defeated by Armodrillo.

In Special Delivery, Thunderbig came to Ben's house and tried to kill him for eating his father. Ben said that he is not the person he is looking for and defeated him as Echo Echo.

In Rad, Thunderpig was thrown out of the Black Hole alongside Bug-Lite.

In Mud is Thicker Than Water, Thunderpig participated in an attack on a Plumber Ship and received highly advanced Plumber Tech from Gorvan. After the Plumbers and Ben arrived, he was defeated by Crashhopper.

In Cough It Up, Thunderpig was among the bounty hunters hired by Psyphon to retrieve the Dehydrated Techadon Army Cube. However, he was defeated by Spidermonkey and later banned from Undertown by Argit.

In Blukic and Driba Go to Area 51, Thunderpig escaped from his cell and attacked Ben only to be defeated by Luhley.

In No Honor Among Bros, Thunderpig defeated the Bouncer at the Golden Fist Tournament but did not make it to the finals. Outside of the fighting, he was amazed by Blowfeld's strength.

In Universe vs. Tennyson, Thunderpig got out from jail thanks to Chadzmuth much to Ben's annoyance. Though he was taken back after Perk Upchuck ate his flail and spit it onto him, Chadzmuth helped him once again before they could have put him back to his cell.

In Clyde Five, Thunderpig teamed up with Liam to retrieve the Mark 5 Nanoshift Enabled Exo-Armor. After Clyde Fife rubbed Liam's neck and made him fall asleep, Thunderpig started to panic before grabbing Liam and running away. Retreating to the Black Hole, Thunderpig told a recovered Liam that he was bailing because he was not interested in fighting a wizard.

Powers and Abilities[]

Thunderpig exhibits enhanced strength, which allows him to use his flail.

Thunderpig has enhanced speed, as he can run faster than that of a normal human.

Thunderpig understands the Sotoraggians' language, since he was shown talking to them in the Black Hole. He was also impressed by what EightEight said when she tried to get Argit.[3]


Thunderpig is armed with an energy flail and a laser cannon.


It is implied that Thunderpig is not very intelligent and quickly comes to conclusions, evident by assuming Ben had eaten his father.

Thunderpig is quite superstitious, easily becoming afraid of Clyde Fife when he subdued Liam and assuming he was a wizard.[4]
