The most fanatic soldiers in the war to free the Dark Lum Lord are the Hoodblasters, known for the mighty boomsticks they tout with tyrannical authority. These gritty troops are the grunts of the Hoodlum Army and feature some of the most scattershot shooting skills ever seen. While off-duty, Hoodblasters live for the cutthroat competition of frog shooting tournaments.
An exceptional marksman. There's no-one better to display a rifle.—In-game description, Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc
Hoodmonger Privates, First Class, also known as Hoodblasters in the North American version of the game, are musket-wielding Hoodlum sharpshooter grunts that appear in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc, Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge and Rayman Kart.
Hoodmongers are the most common enemies and Hoodlums in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc and Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge. They use two types of shotguns to attack Rayman, and they can sometimes be tricked into shooting one another. They wear brown sack-clothes and hats, and their eyes are red or white. They appear in all the worlds, with the exception of the Longest Shortcut. Their final in-game appearance is in the final battle with the Leptys/Reflux, during which André spawns an army of them with the Sceptre of the Leptys.
A Hoodmonger also appears in the Wanna Kick Rayman? vignettes, which are presented as fictional instruction videos in which a Hoodmonger teaches the viewer how to kill Rayman.
Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge also features Hoodmongers, in which they fire triple pellet shots instead of their regular gun shots. Even though the projectiles are different, their attack is similar to that of the Hoodmonger Officers from the previous game.
