The Shadowhog rules over a dimension of pigs. He has the power
Shadowhog 2
to change people's taste buds so that all they taste is pork. He was voiced by Jeffery Jones, who also voiced President Man. He is about 8'6" tall (according to Gaz), and enjoys ballet, tea, video games, and tormenting souls. His first and only appearance is in the episode "Gaz, Taster of Pork".

The Curse

Shadowhog 1

The Shadowhog demonstrates his dancing abilities.

Dib summoned the Shadowhog via Spelldrive to test his powers on Gaz, which made everything but actual pork products taste "like a pig." After receiving some help from the Swollen Eyeball Network (only after being threatened by his sister), Dib was able to pull them both into the Shadowhog's dimension. The Shadowhog had Gaz go through two trials, both of which she handled with ease, thus freeing her from his curse. Despite planning to send both children home free, the Shadowhog sentenced Dib to cleaning his toilet with a brush attached to his head, due to Dib begging him to "punish (him) instead." The Shadowhog and Gaz seem to get along very well: They were shown playing video games together, and the Shadowhog later bought her ice cream and danced ballet for her while Dib was getting attacked by giant pig guards outside. The Shadowhog and Gaz were later shown having tea together, and Gaz even confided to him her troubles concerning Dib's constant ranting over Zim, before she was interrupted by the arrival of Dib.


  • The Shadowhog is one of the few people that learns that Zim is an alien, despite never actually meeting him and actually believes Gaz, had it been Dib who told him that, he most likely wouldn't believe him.
  • Ironically, Gaz might have made her first friend in the Shadowhog thanks to the curse Dib put on her.
