Hoodlums was supposed the main antagonist for the cancelled game Twelve Tales: Conker 64, which would later become Conker's Bad Fur Day. He is a dark wizard who dresses with a purple robe adorned with stars and golden moons, carrying a hat above his head and eyes that are white.
In the game, Conker and Berri must collect 100 presents stolen by the evil "Hoodlums" and scattered throughout four worlds. While questing through the worlds collecting presents, Conker and Berri must save their friends who were kidnapped and free the universe of the Hoodlums
The Hoodlums look a lot like Mr. Dark from Rayman.
The word "Hoodlum" means gangster
