A Hoodmonger waiting for his victim.

Wanna Kick Rayman is a fictional series of 547 Video and DVD episodes created by the Hoodlums to train themselves against Rayman and can be viewed in the extras menu in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. Each episode starts with a fictional "buy 546 get 1 free!" offer, followed by the main content. The videos show creative and odd ways that a Hoodblaster devises to beat up an animal that has the role of Rayman. The victims are dressed with a shirt in the style of Rayman and sometimes with a kitchen glove on their heads that resembles Rayman's hair. Sometimes the animals prevail and manage to defeat the Hoodmonger. There are eleven known episodes that are included with Rayman 3.

Episodes

  • Lesson 007/073/100: A Squab is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger puts on a black robe like James Bond and picks up a gun. After accidentally losing the gun he actives a device on his wrist and uses it against his victim. The Squab is cooked until it becomes a roast chicken. In the Rayman 3 Press Kit, this lesson is known as Lesson 007 as a reference to James Bond. On the GameCube version, this lesson is known as Lesson 073. On every other version, this lesson is known as Lesson 100.
  • Lesson 069: A Bonton is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger shows his private parts to the Bonton, making it faint. Under the Hoodmonger's clothes is revealed to be a Bonton head. This lesson can only be found on the European GameCube release. On the North American release, this lesson does not exist. On every other version, Lesson 502 (version 2)/512 is mislabeled in the menu as Lesson 069.
  • Lesson 134: A Squab is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodlum puts a battery inside it, and turns it on and off until the Squab explodes.
  • Lesson 169: A Bonton is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger shows his private parts to the Bonton, making it faint. Under the Hoodmonger's clothes is revealed to be a Black Lum. This lesson can only be found on either the European or North American GameCube release.
  • Lesson 219: A fat bee is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger blows into it, inflating it. He lets the bee go, causing it to fly until it crashes into the camera.
  • Lesson 273: A Bonton is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodlum picks a little hammer and the victim starts laughing because of the dimensions of the weapon. Then the hammer increases in size and the Hoodblaster starts beating the Bonton continuously until the victim's eye squirts out.
  • Lesson 312: A Bonton is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. Then the Hoodmonger transforms into a wizard and starts converting the victim into various objects (a toilet, a teapot and Rayman dressed as a ballerina). In the end the Bonton is transformed into a Hoodmonger that shoots the other.
  • Lesson 321: The Hoodmonger presses a button to call the transport machine, but nothing happens. He starts pressing the button continuously until the transport machine crashes into him, making him fly off-screen.
  • Lesson 408: A fat bee is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine, but the victim doesn't come off from it. The Hoodmonger starts chasing the machine. Finally, he succeeds in catching the bee and drops it onto the ground making it lose an eye.
  • Lesson 502 (version 1): A fat bee is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger throws his victim into a nearby toilet, cramming it down with a plunger, and finally flushes it.
  • Lesson 502 (version 2)/Lesson 512: A Bonton is led to the Hoodmonger with a transport machine. The Hoodmonger drinks a plum juice cocktail then starts kissing the victim. At the end the Bonton's eyes are swallowed by him. In the GameCube version, this lesson is named Lesson 512. In the Rayman 3 Press Kit, this lesson is named Lesson 502. In versions of Rayman 3 other than the GameCube version, this lesson is mistitled Lesson 069 in the menu, while in the video it shares its name with Lesson 502 (version 1). This mistake occurred when the press kit version of this lesson was used instead of Lesson 069. Should this lesson have been properly added in those versions, it would have been titled Lesson 503.
