Usage by the Eggman Empire
An unfortunate Picky was later used by Dr. Eggman and Dr. Starline as a test subject for the Metal Virus in the Final Egg. As a part of this test, the terrified Picky was touched by a Pocky that had been turned into a Zombot. This caused the virus to slowly infect the Picky as well. (StH: #13)
The Picky is a small and rotund pig slightly less than half a meter tall. They are humanoid in anatomy as they stand on two legs. They have light pink skin and possess large round heads with two large black eyes, triangular ears, and small stubby snouts. Other features include relatively small torsos, thin and short arms with fingers, stubby legs with long feet and two cloven for toes, and a short coiled tail each.
The Picky is a peaceful species. It is not known to fight, as it is constantly captured by the Eggman Empire.
The Picky can only speak in a language consisting of swine-sounding noises. The Ricky is also intelligent enough to understand normal language.
