Marbled Pig is a large species of pig whose skin is said to have a brilliant luster that makes it shine like marble stone and its meat is so succulent that it melts all over one's tongue. In the anime, its meat is served at Hotel Gourmet.
It is a very large breed of pig with pink-colored wrinkly skin and a very portly body shape. Its back is quite large and appears to be humped. Its tail is also notably long and flabby for a pig's and it seems to drag behind it. It has a very large snout and small squinted eyes. Its ears are quite large, being big and floppy but usually droop downward. Its most notable the trait is brilliant shiny gloss of its skin which resembles that of marble stone.
They live together in large groups and seem to feed off of grass and red-colored berries.
Their meat is plump and juicy and will melt the moment it enters the mouth, filling it with flavor. In the anime, it is shown that the Marbled Pig's meat shines like marble stone even in raw form and its taste can be greatly enhanced by using a special spice made from Parmesansho Fruit and Horsetail Cinnamon Sticks which can be properly made with a Gourmet Spicer. Once cooked, the meat gains a nice brown color and can then be covered in sauce and the special spice, making it a delicious dish with plenty of impact.
