Daft Piggies are some of the most famous DJs in pigs. They, along with Leonard and the rest of the pigs, arrive at the Bird Island, where they get acquainted with the birds and even arrange a performance for them. Later, Daft Piggies, along with the rest of the pigs involved in the huge theft of bird eggs, and then sail back on the ship. During the final credits, after the destruction of Svinograd, they were carried on the stretcher of the Chef, after which all three of them, like all the other characters of the film, rush to dance to the song "I Will Survive".
Outwardly, Daft Piggies are no different from ordinary pig minions, except for the emerald green helmets put on their heads. One of the pigs wears a helmet with a long horizontal visor, being a parody and an allusion to Thomas Bangalter, and the second, with a wide vertical, parodying Guy-Manuel de Homem-Cristo.
