According to Al Gore, Manbearpig is half man, half bear and half pig, despite the fact that this makes no logical sense. It is depicted in drawings to be a humanoid creature covered in fur, with hooves, claws and a pig's snout and ears. However, during the few appearances of the actual Manbearpig, it is shown to be a different creature entirely. It's legs and the left side of its body are human, whilst the right side is bear, with a large, clawed paw at the end of it's right arm only, its left ending in a human hand. The head of Manbearpig is half-bear, half-pig, with the bear half covering the right side and lower jaw, and the pig half covering the left.
- Though Manbearpig's origins are unknown, it is rumoured to be a creation of Dr. Alphonse Mephesto. If this is true, the creation is one of few inconsistencies amongst his creations.
