|— In-game description|
The piglin merchant is a merchant that sells the hero gilded gear, and uses gold as its currency instead of emeralds. It appears in the camp inside a nether-themed cave right next to a Nether Portal, after the hero has obtained at least one piece of gold in an Ancient Hunt.
The piglin merchant is a passive piglin variant. It is missing one eye and has a gold tusk and ear. They are seen wearing dark red colored clothing with a gold belt and light red pants. They also seem to wear a cape and sleeves which are a bit torn, and has a guard on each arm like the armored piglin. Their body is very large in size but their head is a bit dislocated and is in front of their body instead of on top of it. They also wear a large red backpack with a bone and two chains on their back. The backpack the merchant is carrying also has nether warts growing and dangling off of it, five of which are seen on them. The piglin merchant is also able to stay in the Overworld without turning into a zombified piglin.
The piglin merchant gives items to the hero in exchange for gold. They will sell gilded items to heroes. Heroes can unlock more trades with the merchant by completing Ancient Hunts, it will take three Ancient Hunts wins for the first trade unlock and fifteen for the second. The hero can restock their trades with gold or by completing Ancient Hunts.

- "A perplexing pedlar somehow immune to the Overworld zombification of their kind, or just another upstart capitalist with a snout for profit? One thing is known for sure, the Piglin Merchant deals only in the hard-earned spoils of your Ancient Hunt adventures… Gold!" – @dungeonsgame on Twitter, February 22, 2021
- "How much gold for one baby chicken?" – @dungeonsgame on Twitter, August 25, 2021
