The Nookins are a volcano-dwelling tribe of Teensies found in Rayman 3. They also appear in the handheld version of the game.

In Rayman 3

Before the Hoodlums invaded, the Nookins lived happily, tucked underground near the volcanic core. Unfortunately, this was the perfect place for a Hoodlum factory, and the Nookins soon found themselves, and their treasured ukuleles, kicked to the curb.
—Press release, Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc[1]

Originally from the location of the Hoodlum Headquarters, they were chased from their homes as the Hoodlums built their factory. In the game, they are only encountered inside cages in the Tower of the Leptys.

The way they talk is similar to the way stereotypical Jamaicans speak, usually adding 'mon' on the end of their phrases, such as 'I have to go finish inventing chocolate toothpaste, mon'.

In the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman 3

In this game, Rayman meets two Nookins at the exit of every hub worlds with a Sylkin. They are seen sleeping or dancing at the end of every world. The player cannot interact with them.

They wear some straw clothes, instead of those made of leaves in the console version of Rayman 3.
