|Behind the scenes information|
No one messes with Bull the Razorback. A towering giant of muscle and sinew, he`s a misunderstood bush pig that just wants to be left alone. But all that`s about to change when Ty the Tasmanian Tiger comes into his life. Perhaps there`s more to Bull than his seething bad temper and his gruff exterior?
Bull is the first boss the player will encounter in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, in which Ty must fight him to obtain the first of the five mystic talismans. He reappears in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 3 as a background character out in the wilds of Southern Rivers.
Bull the boar has orange, bushy eyebrows as well as orange fur on his back near his head. He wears an eye-patch on his right eye, a purple\lavender tank-top, and what appear to be shackles on his feet. His tusks are yellowish, and he sports a tattoo that spells "MUM". He's described as a sensitive soul who just wishes to be left in peace.
Fighting The "Bull"
In the pen where you fight the him, there a several large termite mounds. Simply stand in front of one when he is running towards you. Once he is close enough, quickly jump out of the way and he will forcefully crash into the mound, letting out a painful roar and losing a quarter of his health. After being hurt, he will rear up on his hind legs and stomp on the ground, sending out a shockwave which you must jump over to avoid. Before charging you again, the boar will dig up some rocks and hurl them at you. Almost immediately after this, he will charge at you again. This repeats three times.
Riding The Boar
When riding Bull in Outback Safari, Ty uses a special boomerang called the Lassorang. Bull has the ability to charge in place of Ty's bite attack. The bull will be hurt if you run into a termite mound, get caught in a twister, or fall from a large height.
- Despite him being named "Bull" the boss is actually a boar rather than a male bovine.
- In Outback Safari after his defeat, the Boar is ridden by Ty, suggesting that he respects Ty after their match.
- In Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue, Lenny tells an exaggerated version of Bull's battle with Ty to a group of schoolchildren, with such details as Bull being over 100 ft. tall and Ty battling him to save a village of orphans, rather than to get the first talisman.
- Bull resembles Ganon in his beast-form from The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess. However, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger came out several years before Twilight Princess.
