"Get ready, cause I'm warning you. This stage is about to explode with major piggy power!"
— Gunter

Gunter is a male pig who is one of the main characters of the movie Sing, serving as the comic relief. He also stars in the Sing home release-exclusive short "Gunter Babysits".

He is voiced by Nick Kroll and speaks with a German accent.


Gunter is an anthropomorphic pig. While he is rather large in weight, he has great skill in aerobics and dancing. He wears a sparkly golden hoodie and pants covering a shiny red unitard with black dancing shoes. During his and Rosita's performance of "Shake It Off", he wears a sparkly black leotard.

In Christmas-themed TV spots, he wears a Santa hat, and his golden hoodie has candy canes printed on it.


Gunter is a bubbly, hyperactive, and passionate performer who is not afraid to show his love to sing and dance. He gives his performances his all, calling his drive and passion "Piggy Power!". Gunter feels most sure of himself when rocking spandex leotards and enjoys sharing his passion with others, encouraging Rosita to loosen up and shed her inhibitions. His only problem is conveying his enthusiasm in a way that others can understand and relate to. He can also be a little airheaded, such as when he answers a question Buster addresses to Rosita after the latter trips and falls.



Gunter is introduced auditioning for Buster Moon's singing competition. While initially rejected, Buster immediately calls him back to partner with Rosita and liven up her act. He explains to Rosita that she should let the music tell her body what to do instead of following a long series of complicated dance steps. He also shows sympathy for Ash when he hears that her boyfriend, Lance, cheated on her, insulting Lance.

Gunter Babysits

Gunter arrives at Rosita & Norman's apartment and greets them loudly. Norman thanks Gunter for offering to babysit, but Rosita is nervous about it and expresses her doubt to Gunter. Gunter reassured her that everything will be fine. Rosita calls on her phone shortly after and Gunter's ringtone wakes one of Rosita & Norman's children, who asks for candy. Gunter agrees, but the other children go to get candy as well and they become hyper. Gunter loses control of the situation, but eventually gets them to go back to sleep. Rosita and Norman return and see one of the children still in the living room, showing it didn’t go as well as he said it would.

Happy Holidays From Sing

While the Sing cast has fun at an ice rink, Gunter replaces the background music track ("Sleigh Ride") with his holiday-themed dance remix of "Groove Is in the Heart". Everyone on the rink immediately clears space for him to dance, while squids swimming underneath provide a light show. Later he appears lounging on a speaker dragged by Ash while she provides guitar accompaniment. At the end, Gunter poses with the rest of the Sing cast while stripping down to a gold, sparkly speedo.

Sing on Tour

Pre-Show Gunter is impressed with the dancing of one of Rosita's piglets and wants to incorporate the child's moves into their upcoming performance; Rosita is unenthusiastic at the idea of changing their routine at the last minute. Later, Gunter encourages Meena to overcome her stage fright with breathing exercises; Meena ultimately breathes so deeply she blows him away with her trunk exhalations.
