That's alright. Maybe and a clue is a member dressed as Axel has trouble lifting something heavy, which can't be since Axel has super strength. I might consider this. I don't just imagine Axel and his gang in TLH universe, I also imagine them in the Nintendo universe having adventures with other characters from there. That's just my wild imagination.
I have come up with the official designs of Cheng and his gang.
Anthony Cheng - of course is of Asian descent (Chinese), he has shoulder length black hair which he keeps in a ponytail, he wears a warm up suit, a white tank top underneath, black shoes with white socks and has a lean muscular martial art-style physique, which is better shown when not wearing his warm up jacket.
Jake - large Caucasian man with messy brown hair and beard, wears a dark blue tank top, green cargo pants and brown hiking boots.
Dalir - short slender man of Indian descent with black hair and stubble, wears a black tank top, blue jeans & black boots. His name means Brave in Indian, which is ironic since he is quite cowardly.
Chuck - large Caucasian man with brown hair, wears a red sweatshirt with the sleeves ripped off, light blue shorts and grey sneakers. Almost always seen with a surly facial expression and is the only thug with no facial hair.
Gang member not named yet - Caucasian male with long blonde hair and a beard, wears a green t-shirt and khakis.
Gang member not named yet - Muscular man of Mexican descent with shoulder length black hair and mustache and dark rings around eyes, wears a black tank top, black fingerless gloves, blue jeans and black boots and red white and green bandana (same as the Mexican flag).
Gang member not named yet - African American man with corn rows styled hair and a goatee, wears a white tank top, dark blue cargo shorts and black boots.
