DARK LUMS - Underneath the stitched hoods of every Hoodlum huddles a swarm of Dark Lums: winged little nasties, concentrated puffs of pure evil and the brainless spawn of their master, the Dark Lum Lord who now resides trapped inside Globox's stomach. Channeling their fury into an army of Hoodlums, Dark Lums will stop at nothing to free their Lord and unleash an insidious rule of darkness upon Rayman's world.

HOODSTYLER - Refusing to wear the drab, brown cloaks sported by the other troops, Hoodstylers are out to set the fashion world on fire. The result? A motley ensemble of the most garish colors imaginable. If they miss the enemy with their rifles, the shocking colors of their uniforms are sure to send 'em running.

HOODSTORMER - Experts in Psychological Warfare, the airborne Hoodstormer units are superbly trained in the art of annoying enemies into submission with strategic swooping maneuvers. Commanding poor, pedaling creatures to power their propellers, Hoodstormer pilots train in the swamplands to learn the attack patterns of the ultimate airborne annoyance - mosquitoes.

GRIMS - Under the training of their wily Grimkeepers, the scrappy little Grims make up for their small size with a highly explosive personality.
