Well, you can bring all the piglets you like. I'll make mincemeat of all of you.
Goreham-Hogg at Gortress

Goreham-Hogg is one of the lieutenants of the Gittish Empire in Dragon Quest IX, and a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series.

Description[]

Goreham-Hogg is a huge red-skinned pig-like beast and the first of the Triumgorate, who lurks deep in the Gortress.

Personality[]

Goreham-Hogg is a brute, with some pig speaking in his dialogue. He's also not very bright, due to thinking the Hero wasn't a Celestrian with wings and halo. However, he is aware of certain stuff like after his first defeat, he remembers his seal which Greygnarl took from him, and when revived by Corvus again, he is now fully aware of his existence and thanks him for saving his bacon, showing his blind loyalty to him.

Appearance[]

Main Games[]

Dragon Quest IX[]

Goreham-Hogg was one of King Godwyn's Triumgorate during the war 300 prior to the story. He was initially a soldier of the Empire, but became one of the Triumgorate due to his loyalty. Hogg was later burned to a crisp by Greygnarl, who took his seal to later give to the Hero.

During the game, Hogg is resurrected as an undead pig monster. But like most of the Gittish Empire, there are gaps in his memory and he is oblivious to his own condition. Put in charge of the Gortress, he presides over the Hero when he is captured by the Empire after Greygnarl sacrificed himself to save his home from Barbarus's new and improved power. Not very smart, he believes Hootingham-Gore made a mistake and that the Hero is not a Celestrian due to having lost the wings and halo, despite the solider trying to tell the truth. He has the Hero work with the human prisoners rather than being bound and having his/her power drained.

But having been giving Hogg's own seal by Greygnarl and thus being able to pass the magic barrier, the Hero and Sterling organize a prison riot and attack Hogg. Confused as to why the Hero has his seal, Hogg nonetheless attacks them. It is only after being defeated again that Goreham remembers his own death, and dies again in confusion wondering what's happened to the Empire.

He is then resurrected in the Realm of the Mighty by Corvus, and the heroes have to defeat him a second time to proceed.

Strategy[]

Goreham-Hogg only uses physical attacks, and is a fairly easy boss. He can hit one character for moderate damage, and has a second attack which deals a guaranteed critical hit for around 170 damage, or he can hit the whole party. High defence is the best way to survive.

As long as you have a Priest healing, he should fall fairly easily. He has a weakness to Ice that Mages can take advantage of.

Strategy[]

Goreham-Hogg is exactly the same as before, though his HP is halved and his attack and agility have received negligible bonuses. As a result, he will fall even faster than the first time.

Trivia[]

  • He ridicules others by calling them swine, which is ironic, as he is now a pig.
  • Goreham-Hogg is similar to Blackmar from Dragon Quest VI, both being cruel sadistic wardens of the prisons they run (Gortress and Gallows Moor), and have overwhelming loyalty to their masters (Corvus, albeit after being revived again and Mortamor).
