Hawk is the Joy Mutant version of Hawk Hollywood, the leader in Holly Wood. Hawk still retains most of his previous physical features, the only difference being his elongated and twisted neck, giving him the appearance of a flagpole.
Hawk has a high chance to use the perma-kill move Fatal Chomp, so it is advised to either plan a strategic attack to prevent Hawk from using this attack or to use other party members in place of ones you don't wish to have killed. A good method of avoiding Hawk's perma-kill is to get him Pissed using party members such as Nern Guan, Harvey Alibastor or Terry Hintz. Decreasing Hawk's hit rate with Crying or Blind will make his Bite and Scratch skills miss, however won't prevent Fatal Chomp from hitting.
Since Hawk Hollywood's transformation is one of the biggest differences between Normal mode and Pain mode, it helps to know the differences between the two. Hawk Hollywood has higher ATK, SDEF, AGI, and LUCK stats and lower HP, DEF, and SATK stats. However, Hawk as a mutant is much more dangerous due to his aforementioned Fatal Chomp attack. While, as a human, he does have some attacks that can perma-kill, as a mutant, it will use its perma-kill attack much more often.
Hawk's mutant form is pain mode exclusive, replacing the Hawk Hollywood fight.
- Despite becoming a Joy Mutant, it still knows the 'Smile' that it used before its transformation.
- It's unknown what happened to his men, but it's quite possible they escaped or were killed by him after he turned.
- Hawk Hollywood does not get the normal Joy Mutant song of "Soft Skin", instead getting the tune "Blood for Sex" in its place.
- Oddly enough, Hawk will drop more Mags on death than its pre-mutation form.
