The Hooligans, formerly known as Team Hooligans, is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. Consisting of Nack the Weasel, Bean the Dynamite, and Bark the Polar Bear, the Hooligans are an independent group of mercenaries that search for anything valuable to their eyes.


Pre-Super Genesis Wave

Sometime after the Destruction of Knothole, Nack the Weasel, Bean the Dynamite, and Bark the Polar Bear, along with Ixis Naugus and Mammoth Mogul, were freed from the Egg Grape Chamber thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog and NICOLE the Holo-Lynx, the five villains attempted to force the citizens of New Mobotropolis to swear their allegiance to them. However, NICOLE had transported the five mischievous characters to the New Mobotropolis Detention Center, where they would be silenced there.[1] However, thanks to Mogul tricking Sonic upon bringing the mammoth a Chaos Emerald, Nack, Bean, and Bark escaped to the Casino Night Zone.[2] Eventually, the three came together and formed a team known as "Team Hooligans", where they attempted to cause trouble and get rich while at it. On a bright, colorful day, Team Hooligan bear witness a fight between Team Rose and Team Dark over a Sol Emerald.[3]
