Bonnie (affectionately referred to as Bonnie-chan) is a pet boar owned by Ganju Shiba.


Bonnie is a reddish-brown boar with an angry expression. She wears a red ribbon which Kaien Shiba gave her on the back. Bonnie is tattooed with kanji lettering on its side, which roughly translates to "four-wheeled drive."


Bonnie was found by Ganju's brother Kaien in a mountainous area of Rukongai, when she was a piglet.[1] She was injured at the time and was looked after by Kaien. Bonnie's ribbon was given to her by Kaien. Bonnie was very fond of Kaien and she is still not as emotionally attached to Ganju as she was to his brother.[1]
