A comprehensive list of games and spin-off media that feature Pigma as a supporting antagonist or cameo.
Star Fox 64/3D
In Star Fox 64 and the 3DS release, Pigma will show up with the rest of his team by default at Fichina and Venom II, and may be encountered at Bolse if you took a path that did not consist of Fichina or if you did not shoot him down during the Fichina mission. Pigma will target his former wing mate Peppy, while making taunts to Fox such as "Come on, little man; shoot me!".
(If Peppy is not present during the Fichina mission, he'll chuckle to himself and state that Star Wolf will be getting a whole lot of cash for killing the Star Fox team.)
Strategy Guide description
- “Pigma Dengar used to fly with the Star Fox team, but he sold out his comrades for money and turned to evil.”
- —Official Nintendo Power Player's Guide, pg 9
- “This is the final showdown between you and your longtime rival. If not for Pigma's influence, you may never have become enemies. Who knows? In another time, another place, you might have called him friend…”
- —Official Nintendo Power Player's Guide, pg 111
Star Fox: Assault
Pigma plays a major role in Assault, where he first appears after the completion of Mission 2, where he flies a new spacecraft and reveals himself to have set a cunning false distress signal for Fox to follow and then plays a game of interplanetary chicken with his former team for possession of an Aparoid Core Memory.
In Mission 3, Star Fox follow his trace to an illegal hideout and begin to take control to find Pigma, but their intrusion starts a retaliation from the ruffians who denied knowing who Pigma is, and attack Star Fox. After dog-fighting with Star Wolf, Wolf reveals that Pigma's position on his team has been terminated but the newcomer Panther gives Star Fox advice to head for Fichina.
During Mission 4, Star Fox turn the climate control center back on in order to stop the blizzards and find Pigma, but they are delayed again when Pigma uses the Core Memory to infect part of the climate control center machinery with Aparoidedation, forcing them to postpone following Pigma to prevent the station from exploding. Later, Pigma falls asleep at the controls of his spacecraft and begins to slowing lose his mind to Aparoidedation.
At the end of Mission 5, the Star Fox team watch Pigma abandon his ship as he undergoes Aparoidedation and fuses with a space station to become an Aparoid mutant and the stage boss. When the station is destroyed and goes into meltdown, Fox says nothing when watching Pigma scream in pain but previously acknowledged that he had presumably already perished.
Instruction Booklet description
- “A greedy miser who thinks of nothing save his own gain. His life has been one double cross after another. His overwhelming greed and unreliability got him kicked out of Star Wolf.”

Wanted: Pigma Dengar
Latest intelligence confirms Dengar has left Team Star Wolf to satisfy his greed as a freelance criminal.
Strategy Guide description
- “Pigma cut his teeth on the Star Wolf team, but the greedy swine wore out his welcome and has gone freelance. He hasn't been Fox's greatest concern in the past, but you can never underestimate a self-serving fellow when there's profit to be made during a war - and there's no skirmish bigger than what the Aparoids have started.”
- —Star Fox: Assault; Nintendo Power Strategy Guide pg 7
Serving as the boss of Mission 5 at the Meteo Asteroid Belt, Pigma is now the cybernetic combination of an abandoned hexagonal space station with Aparoid infection and a monstrous incarnation of Pigma's face in the center. He speaks to the team in plural idiosyncratic manner, referring to himself as "we" or "us" (save for a single quote he makes at the beginning of the battle: "Join me."), indicating the shattered state of his now insane mind.
This boss is very similar to the Gorgon Space Station, Andross's Ultimate Space Weapon. The creature is armed with six robotic space crane arms, each with built in claws for close combat and launching Asteroids. The claws also have retractable Missile Launchers and twin-barreled Gatling Laser Guns. He will use his grappling crane arms to throw asteroids, lash out at the player with the crane arms, spatter volleys of blaster bolts, and fire small ballistic missiles from the claws. After the player shoots off all its arms, it is able to launch guided bombs from the slots surrounding his face. His face will now be vulnerable to attack while he launches his bombs. Aparoid Pigma performs his ultimate ability when he closes the hatch around his face, gathers a giant amount of energy, opens back up the hatch, and fires a devastating lavender Disintegrator Beam from his mouth. After unleashing this powerful attack, Aparoid Pigma will be temporarily vulnerable and will not attack for a small window of time, giving the player the opportunity to greatly damage and maybe even finish him off. The boss will give HIT+10 upon defeat.
Star Fox CommandPigma returns in Command in the form of a ghostly rubix cube, serving as a boss in Sector X and Sector Y, and he referred to this form as "Neo Pigma" at least once.
The battle between Pigma and Star Fox in Star Fox Command differs from his previous appearance. Pigma is built up by four rotating squares like a rubix cube, with a different colored pattern on each side. Pigma will launch missiles like before, while creating vertical laser beams to attack the chosen starfighter. By shooting the four corners to reveal the Pigma pattern, the cube will separate to reveal its weak spot core. However, when the picture is complete, Pigma will launch a laser outline of his face towards the ship. The boss will give just 1 HIT upon defeat.
Star Fox ZeroPigma returns in Star Fox Zero, still a member of Star Wolf. He first appears in Area 3, where he was assigned to back up Caiman's starfighter group in holding off Star Fox long enough to allow the Venomian forces to retrieve the Gigarilla. Pigma will retreat after taking enough damage, despite Caiman's protests that it wasn't part of their deal as Pigma is promising Fox that the battle between them isn't over before retreating.
If the player meets certain requirements, Pigma alongside Andrew will fight Fox in Sector alpha as an optional boss.
- “Disgraced former member of Team Star Fox who betrayed James McCloud.”

Super Smash Bros. Series
Pigma appeared firstly as a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He has recently appeared as a trophy in the fourth title. His pose and artwork is captured from his Assault character artwork, while his trophy implies that Star Wolf was formed after he persuaded Wolf to do so, referencing the curious fact about Pigma being the source of reason behind Fox and Wolf's rivalry from Nintendo Power's Star Fox 64 guide. The Wolfen's trophy also claims that he had a hand in the design of the ship, which references when he is shot in his Wolfen II while he exclaims You can't beat me! I've got a better ship!.
