|First game||Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins|
The Three Little Pigs, also known as the Three Little Pigheads, are a boss from Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. They are the boss of the Mario Zone. Each of the pigs occupy a house hanging from the ceiling. The first pig occupies a house of straw and simply rolls across the floor. The second pig lives in a wooden house and leaps instead of simply rolling. The last pig lives in a brick house and also leaps across the room, but leaps higher and faster. When defeated, they leave behind one of the six Golden Coins.
Appearances in other media
The Three Pigs appeared in the Mario Vs. Wario comic strip that ran in Nintendo Power. It is the only place they are named, hence the origin of the semi-official name "The Three Little Pigheads." They appeared as villains Wario hired to attack Mario, who was oblivious to the fact they were hired to attack him. He defeated them by using one as a bowling ball and the others as bowling pins.
