Fed up with Antoine 118

The Nasty Hyenas preparing Antoine.

While roaming the Great Forest, the Nasty Hyenas would accost Antoine Depardieu upon encountering him. When Antoine tried to show off his limited martial arts skills, the Nasty Hyenas frightened him so badly that he accidently knocked down their hover bikes. However, when Antoine said he was a master of "king-fu", the Nasty Hyenas seemingly mistook him for their king. Addressing him now as their "royalness", the Nasty Hyenas would worship Antoine in various ways. During the following evening, they would meet the Knothole Freedom Fighters, who wanted Antoine to come back home with them. However, Antoine refused, having grown accustom to his new life. The next day however, the Nasty Hyenas began to cook Antoine, only for the Knothole Freedom Fighters to interrupt them. The Nasty Hyenas members were subsequently defeated by Sonic, Dulcy, Sally, Bunnie, and even Antoine, allowing the heroes to return to Knothole Village.[1]


The Nasty Hyenas' traditional uniforms all consists of multiple piercings, boots and black leather jackets/wests.


  • Hover bikes: Each member of the Nasty Hyenas got around using advanced hover bikes reminiscent of motorcycles.[1]
