"A Pigmask who aims for promotion to major. His monthly salary is a meager 900 DP."
Battle Memory

The Pigmask Captain (Pigmask Major in Japan) is an enemy in Mother 3. They are much stronger and of higher rank than the primary Pigmask soldiers in the Pigmask Army, and they wear blue uniforms, as opposed to the primary soldiers' pink. According to the Battle Memory, they are not content with their job and receive mediocre wages.

They are the second class of Pigmask Army soldier encountered in the game, when they are found leading the other Pigmasks during the siege of Osohe Castle. They can be fought in the Chimera Laboratory and the Clayman Factory during Chapter 7.


Like most Pigmasks, the Captain can attack by firing low-damage beams and performing a kick (which is more powerful than the Pigmask's variant, and does moderate damage); they can also lower a character's offense by saying some nasty, horrible things. The Captain also possesses two relatively unique actions: they can fire a pepper spray that induces crying, and may even run from the battle while tossing out DP. Their battle theme is Hustle For Pride.

The Pigmask Captain is weak against PK Freeze, and also like most Pigmasks, showing DCMC items to them will cause them to be utterly mesmerized and waste turns being jealous. They give 854 EXP. and 150 DP upon defeat.

Its battle sound is Battle Sound 50 which falls under Code Numbers 909 for regular attack, 910 for Smaaaash! and 911 for Miss.


  • His name was changed to the "Pigmask Captain" from the "Pork Commander" during the fan translation. Oddly enough, their Japanese name means "Pigmask Major", a name assigned to a different enemy in the fan translation.
