A Pig, as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns.
First Appearance Donkey Kong Country Returns
Features Control-aid, makes checkpoints available, and activates the Super Guide

Pigs are a brand new in-level character/item(which replaced the Star Barrel checkpoint)featured in Donkey Kong Country Returns. They are used as a checkpoint or continue point in a level. They are also used for teaching new moves with the Wii-Remote or Wii-Remote and Nunchuck by way of a simple visual indication in the appropriate location. The Pigs can be used for the Super Guide. Pressing the + on the Wii-Remote will change over to the Super Kong and complete the level without collecting any of the collectibles. For the Pig to allow the Kongs to use this, they will need to have died at least 8 straight times in a single level.

[edit] Checkpoints

Other than serving as a control-aid at the beginning of the game, Pigs serve another general purpose in Donkey Kong Country Returns, which happens to be personally manning checkpoints at each level of the game. These checkpoints take on the appearance of wooden stands with a pig standing dormant behind it. Once passed by either Donkey Kong or Diddy Kong, the Pig will jump in the air while waving a flag and sounding a kazoo, with confetti bursting into the air. Afterwards, the Pig will duck behind the wooden stand and a sign holding up a white banner depicting a green checkmark will appear, indicating that the checkpoint has been successfully activated.
