Pig (ポーキー, Pōkī?) is a Black Magic spell exclusive to Final Fantasy IV which causes the Pig Status. It costs 1 MP and can be only learned by Palom, Rydia, and Fusoya. It has a 100% accuracy (10% in non-DS versions, 40% in Easy Type).
The Pig status disables the following commands: Summon, Darkness, Recall, Aim, Focus, Kick, Brace, Twincast, Bluff, Cry, Analyze, and Regen. It also disables all magic including monster magic other than the Black Magic spell Pig. White Magic users can still cast Esuna, but only outside of battle.
The Pig status severely reduces the afflicted unit's Attack power. It can be cured by using the Diet Food item. In addition, the Polymorph Rod staff may inflict the Pig status on one or all enemies when used as an item. The Piglet Sword in the Easytype version has a chance of inflicting the Pig status when attacking. In the GBA & PSP release, the Piggy's Stick (GBA), Hog Call (PSP), and Pig's Bamboo Sword (The After Years) are a homage to the Piglet Sword of the Easytype version.
Pig retains all of its features from Final Fantasy IV, and is learnable by Rydia at level 20. Fusoya, Palom, and Biggs all start with the spell. The Polymorph Rod makes a return, along with it the Queen's Whip can turn enemies into Pig when attacking. There is also an unused weapon called Pig's Bamboo Sword.
The Band ability, Call Me Queen, can transform one enemy into a pig.
The Pig status card reduces the player's medals by half.
The Pig status card reappears in the new Labyrinth mode, and cuts medals rewarded by half.
