"I sent Porkchop the Boar up to the Arena to help you out. He'll at least keep one of them distracted! Now good luck!"

Porkchop the Boar is a unique boar and prized mascot of the Arena Blue Team. He is allied with the Hero of Kvatch in the third match of Hero rank at the Arena in the Imperial City.

Porkchop is set to level five when he is first met and does not scale in level with the Hero of Kvatch. Unlike the common boars of Cyrodiil, he has more health but does not have a resistance to frost or the Chanthrax Blight disease.


During the battle, it is entirely possible for Porkchop to kill all three opponents (including the Nord Champion) by the Hero providing a distraction and allowing Porkchop to continuously attack them.


After the battle, he is supposedly released from his pen if he survived. If he dies, the Hero of Kvatch can collect Boar Meat from him.


  • His cage can be reached by typing "tcl" without the quotes on the console of the PC version, or by jumping through a wall near the entrance to the Bloodworks.
  • He is the only boar in-game to readily aid the Hero of Kvatch.
