The Pygmies are creatures in the Underground Jungle first seen in comic #256. Their texture isn't up to date with the ingame Pygmy Minion which is obvious because by the time the comics with them were made was when 1.2 was a thing to wait for. They accidentally almost boiled Maxx and Cyril alive when Maxx,
not knowing how to knowing how to speak in their language, said "Our silly, crazy king [small, fruit-eating bat] prepare a bath for eighteen moons and make it torch hot! And continue torches for sacred gold! Bring two [hunting cry]!"
