Scrawny Cannibals are the weakest members of the Cannibal faction. Scrawny Cannibals can be found roaming the Cannibal Plains and Darkfinger in large groups.

Scrawny Cannibals are visually distinct from the stronger Cannibal character because they have yellow body paint instead of red. Similarly to their stronger counterparts, the genders of Scrawny Cannibals are differentiated by the pattern of their war paint/tribal markings. Males wear darker paint around their legs and have a rib cage-like bone marking on their upper torso. A female's paint is all done in a yellow pattern, with a pattern on their stomach that looks somewhat suspiciously similar to The Holy Nation's symbol.

They are also significantly smaller when it comes to body size, almost giving them the appearance of teenagers.

If they are near a Cannibal Camp, Scrawny Cannibals will carry KO'd characters to be imprisoned in the camp. If they are not close enough to a camp, they will leave the unconscious character on the ground.

Despite living in harsh conditions, Scrawny Cannibals are equipped with simple Basic First Aid Kits, which means that they are aware of the dangers of having open wounds or passing out in their unsafe neighborhood and/or they want to bandage up the victims they captured for them to be alive and keep their 'meat fresh'.

They wear no armour and have weapons manufactured by Unknown.
