Holly Wood - El Gado's palette swap. He sported a goatee, wore an orange hoodie with camo pants and a bandana on his head. In some occasions, he came dressed in red and brandishing molotov cocktails, which he threw at the heroes just before leaving. This version was much weaker than usual, and required only one hit to be killed off.
Axl - a muscle-bound thug who was able to defend oncoming attacks, unlike other opponents. He had shoulder-long blond hair and wore a headband.
Slash - Axl's palette swap. He had short, curly, dark hair in the SNES version, while the arcade has him wearing a pompadeur hairstyle like Elvis.
Two P and J - a pair of punks dressed in baggy pants and jackets. Two P sported an orange mohawk, wore shades, dressed in orange and blue and had a dragon symbol on his back, while J had his blond hair upright, dressed in yellow and dark blue and had an atomic biohazard symbol on his back. In the game, they tend to strike when the player has their back turned on one of them.
