Fans of Studio Ghibli classic Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime) will no doubt remember Nago (Nago no Mori), the wild boar-turned-demon who curses Ashitaka. He’s not the best-looking boar around, and we’re pretty sure you wouldn’t want to encounter him in the forest – let alone in the back seat of your car!

Snapped and uploaded by a Twitter user, the pic has been retweeted over 14,000 times by excited Japanese who immediately saw the similarities between the terrifying animated creation and the equally strange real-life version.

▼ Real life Boar/Dog Demon!

The original post came with a warning tag for the faint of heart, but most people were delighted by the look-alike.

I was covering my eyes because of the warning, but it actually made me laugh lol

The poor dog is never going to live this down. We’re sure you’re normally adorable, and this was just taken at a bad time!!
