"'Little Pig, little pig, let me come in,' said the wolf to the pig. 'Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin,' said the pig to the wolf." - The Three Little Pigs

In the original tale of "The Three Little Pigs," the story begins with the title characters being sent out into the world by their mother to "seek their fortune." The first pig builds a house of straw, but a wolf blows it down; the pig then runs to his brother's house for safety. The second pig builds a house of sticks and lets his brother in, but the wolf blows his house down as well. The two pigs then run to safety at their other brother's house.

The third pig builds a house of hard bricks and lets his brothers in. When the wolf can't blow the house down, he attempts to trick the little pigs out of the house, but the pigs outsmart him at every turn. Finally, the wolf resolves to come down the chimney; whereupon the pigs boil a pot of water into which the wolf plunges. The pigs quickly cover the pot and cook the wolf for supper.

In "The Three Bad Wolves", the classic tale is inverted into a story of vigilante justice, as the pigs seek retribution for the harm wolves have done to their ancestors. Burning down the homes of Blutbaden is an ode to the tale, as the pigs seek to destroy the homes of the wolves as payback.
