The Hyena comes in the colors brown and grey. In Story Mode hyenas are slaves to the nomad Lions but towards the end of the hyena's story, they take over the Lion's group.


Hyenas are the mammals of the family hyaenidae. Although long reputed to be cowardly scavengers, hyenas kill as much as 95% of the food they eat, and have been known to drive off leopards or lionesses from their kills. Many cultures believe that hyenas influence people’s spirits, rob graves, and steal children.

Life as a Hyena

The Hyena is the seventh and final non-DLC size 3 predator that can be unlocked. Its stats match that of the Lycaon exactly, although its attack style is slightly different and it has slightly smaller Prime litters. In general, the Hyena can be treated in much the same way as the Wolf, Jackal, or Lycaon.

Hyenas as Prey

The hyena can often be seen soon after Survival Mode starts, but are most common around Yamanote Lines around the time the Lions appear or replacing the various wild dogs in Shibuya Woods. Hyenas will usually appear in very large packs and can prove to be a challenge for small, underdeveloped grazers or smaller predators. While not as powerful as the Tosa, the Hyena can often make up for it by its numbers. Hyenas have the special enemy skill Pack Call, which will allow them to call in more Hyenas as reinforcements if they spot a target. If they do intend to call, it's best to take out the Hyena before it can finish.
