Piggy, as seen in the 1963 film. Portrayed by Hugh Edwards.
Piggy is the most scientifically and intellectually intelligent of the group, while Simon is the most spiritually intelligent. He is ignored and overlooked by the others. He is overweight, and also suffers from asthma. His "ass-mar" causes him not to be able to run or swim. He is unable to see without his glasses due to his severe myopia, and has been wearing glasses since he was three. Before the island, Piggy lived with his "auntie" who owned a sweetshop. His real name is not mentioned. Jack calls him a fat slug.
Ralph, "Samneric" and Piggy travel to Castle Rock to retrieve his glasses. When Jack and Ralph begin to fight, Piggy attempts to calm the situation. Roger then released a boulder that rolled down the cliff and struck Piggy, shattering the conch and knocking Piggy forty feet down the cliff, bringing him to his death.
