In their Flipdeck, it is revealed that they are Hex Hatfield's southernmost gang who are based in Tumblewood. According to the same source, they have developed a cult-like following for Hatfield although they have not seen him yet. Due to this, they may be heard chanting his name at some nights. Likely for the same reason, the gang bears a common grudge toward the cactus brawler.
While hexagoons wear different outfits for the level theme, they all wear hats that are identical to the one worn by Hex Hatfield.
- With their hats like Hex Hatfield and their name being "Hexagoons", it is an obvious reference to Hex Hatfield, the main antagonist of the first game.
- "Hexagoons" means "Hex's goons" and it's a pun on the word "hexagon", which means a polygon with six sides (just like their hats).
