Poogie (プーギー) is a pet pig that has been in every Monster Hunter game to date. Poogie serves as one of the mascots of the Monster Hunter series.


  • Poogie is first mostly found near vendors.
  • It serves as a pet inside your room.
  • It was not until Monster Hunter 2 where the hunter can dress up their Poogie different costumes.
  • A successful press of the PS2 X button when a "!" symbol appears over the Poogie's head, will make it jump up and hearts will appear. If you wait a few seconds afterwards before leaving the area, your Poogie will start following you around. However it is quite slow.
  • It is rumored (but never has been proven) that snuggling with the pig gives the hunter good luck on carving rare items.
    • The ability for the hunter to give it a name chosen among the list of available names is also introduced to this game. This is only in Monster Hunter 3, as Monster Hunter Portable 3rd does not have this feature.
    • Asides from petting, the hunter can also carry the Poogie and take it around Moga Village and the farm.
    • Additionally, some interior decorations for the hunters' rooms are fashioned after Poogie.
  • In Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, aside from petting and carrying, a hunter's Felyne Comrades can ride the Poogie inside the Village.
  • In Monster Hunter Frontier, the Poogie has a different purpose, and appears in Hunt Quests.

Legendary Poogie

FrontierGen-Legendary Poogie Render 001

Legendary Poogie (レジェンドプーギー) is owned by the Legendary Rastas a hunter can hire after purchasing the Assist Course (アシストコース). Prior to Monster Hunter Frontier G3.2, before Partners were introduced, the Legendary Poogie was the only means of obtaining additional items in the rewards screen after a quest had been cleared.

Notable about the Legendary Poogie is his unique clothing and ability to drop Max Potions mid-quest, as well as getting you extra monster and gathering items in an additional reward screen. They are mostly praised for their ability to obtain even HC-carves.

In Other Media

Poogie is available as a companion in PlayStation Home when setting up a PSP Ad-Hoc Party game in Monster Hunter Portable. This is only available in Japan.
