Helboar are spiny, mottled boars that burn with a reddish-orange flame. Helboar were once ordinary boars, now mutated by the earth-shattering magic of the Blasted Lands. The arcane fire that savaged the region was absorbed into native boars, turning them into savage, ferocious predators. The body of a helboar is constantly aflame, although this flame deals no damage to the creature. Helboar are omnivores, but consume only plants or animals thoroughly cooked by their flames. Typical helboar are 4 feet long, stand 3 feet high, and weigh 300 pounds or more. Helboar viciously charge any creature that enters their territory. Once engaged in melee, they use their flaming gore attack to tear into and fry their opponents.
The helboar, is a type of boar-like demon with flaming manes. It comes in a variety of looks, possibly related to the amount of exposure it has had to the demonic energies of the Twisting Nether. In Azeroth, the helboar is native only to the Blasted Lands.
The Draenor variety found on Hellfire Peninsula show far larger signs of demonic blood. Their hides are brightly colored and twisted into a vile parody of a boar.
