The Nasty Hyenas are a gang of cannibalistic criminals who travel around Mobius looking for a "king." They were once part of a cannibalistic tribe that always consumed the flesh of their king. They average 4.3 kings a month because they eat them. All of the Nasty Hyenas are about twice the height of Sonic. They have light gray, brown, or orange fur and hair with either stripes or spots. They all have multiple piercings and wear boots and leather jackets/vests. They ride hoverbikes. They're tough for one thing; being in a gang has an advantage as well: there's safety in numbers. They are voiced by Jim Cummings.
