Oh GREAT, another tragic, cliche backstor-
Angler's egg was stolen from the previous king, King Hammerhead, and was preserved for years. After Hammerhead died, Angler hatched. Angler hated Orca, no matter how much food he gave him. Because of the arena his father had built, Orca decided to find out what Angler's true nature was. Apparently, Angler enjoyed killing a Bulbmin prisoner. Orca tried to change him, but it had been too late. Orca still takes care of Angler, and to this day, Angler still has this urge to kill Orca. Once, he secretly swam out of the kingdom to take a look at the outside world. After seeing Wraith, who was actually not half-Giygas for a few minutes, he made an attempt to attack him. Wraith's Giygas side returned, and he clawed his eye. Some say this is the reason he likes Giygas.
"I love you... I love your body, to be honest. It looks delicious."
"You don't understand. Something about the world... It just... Bothered me. It's not that I had a tragic past, or lost something, I just... I don't know... Didn't feel right about the world."
"I hate Bulbmin. I hate every last one. I don't care about their personality. I don't care about their looks. I don't care about their role in life. I don't even care about what they could do to help me. They can all die. I want them extinct. You heard me, quote-on-quote 'dad'. You do not want to see one."
"YOUR DEATH IS NOW! YOU HAVE RAN OUT OF YOUR FUEL! YOU WILL BE FORGOTTEN, AND DEAD!"
"I'm afraid you can't go any further."
"I DON'T SPEAK OF MY PARENTS BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW THEM. I JUST CAME UP WITH THE THEORY ORCA KILLED THEM."
"Oh my gosh, you touched me and hurt me! Let's throw a party. Want to go to the movies to celebrate? Hah. NOPE."
"Some people do see me as a friend. I just want to kill off the world. I just... Don't feel welcome here."
"Hail Porky. If you do not agree, go and jump off a cliff. Porky is awesome. He is organized. Who cares about some Orca guy? Porky for the win! If you don't agree, I will make you."
- He may actually be a Chimera by Porky sent to be in the kingdom.
- He is actually a Genwunner. He claims he wishes he was in Generation 1 because it was "better".
- He is tracking down Madac because he left the kingdom without getting attacked, and Angler got attacked.
- He killed the Riger.
- Angler was revealed to be the water-type starter for the upcoming games Porkymon Dark and Reconstructed.
