Porker Lewis was originally little more than a helpless pig that Sonic the Hedgehog freed from Badniks. However, he was quickly adapted into the technical expert of the team. It was later revealed that Porker had originally come from the Special Zone, where he was originally called Oscar the Pig. The crimelord Hammerhead had duped him into making a powerful bomb and after sabotaging it, he was forced to flee from both the police and an irate Hammerhead, finding a portal to Mobius and changing his name.
Once on Mobius, he resided in the Emerald Hill Zone and became a friend of Sonic. He had the dubious honour of being one of the first Mobians turned into Badniks, and afterwards became a core member of the Freedom Fighters, albeit an extremely timid one. In the early "Enter: Sonic", he says that Sonic is "[his] hero"; "Robotnik Reigns Supreme" would later reveal that if Sonic had never existed, Porker would not have had a hero to look up and give him courage, and he'd have joined Robotnik instead.
The most prominent character development Porker saw during the comics was his encounter with The Brotherhood of Metallix, whereupon he found himself spending a month aboard the Miracle Planet as the Brotherhood's prisoner. Porker suffered a nervous breakdown as a result and left the Freedom Fighters to go live in the Mushroom Hill Zone. He made sporadic appearances helping Knuckles the Echidna with the ancient technology on the Floating Island, occasionally being drawn into situations such as a raid by high-tech thieves on the island. After Doctor Robotnik was deposed, Porker would occasionally assist Sonic and the gang again, most notably against Chaos.
In the alternate reality Robotnik created in "Robotnik Reigns Supreme", Porker is still called Oscar and, having never met Sonic, is the Doctor's most devoted henchman, working for him out of fear. To the Mobians, he is feared enforcer with a robot "death squad": once Sonic destroyed them, all the fight went out of Oscar.
- His name is likely parodying the popular comedy character Parker Lewis.
- Porker made a named appearance as an Inquisition scientist in the popular webcomic Exterminatus Now.
Porker's early appearances either saw him as a member of the Freedom Fighters or just another resident of the Emerald Hill Zone. After he quit fighting Robotnik, many of his appearances moved to Knuckles stories.
