Flipdeck InfoEditFor years, the stories of the Hangmen were considered tall tales. It was said that The Hangmen were a group of deranged prisoners who escaped from Port Scamwell. They were chased deep into Makopa Jungle and cornered at the banks of Whiplash Rapids. Fearing capture, the Hangmen jumped into the raging rapids, never to be seen again. It’s said they still lurk along the river, attacking all who walk the banks.
- They resemble medieval executioners and dungeon masters. Also, in the final level of Cactus McCoy 2, which requires you to kill all of the hangmen using a rope, is a reference to gallows, which were used by executioners to hang people.
- Their name is also a reference to the game, hangman, in which one is given an incomplete word and has to only use the given letters to fill it in. Choosing the wrong letter each time gives a step to draw a man being hung and losing, hence the name.
