* FriendlyRivalry: In their golden age the teams within Rare were closed off from each other and according to Chris Seavor in his director's commentary for ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' would constantly be trying to out due one another when working on their projects.

* FollowTheLeader: It cannot be denied that Rare had a tendency to play to the trends, exploring the same genres and tropes as other games, usually from Nintendo, that had recently been successful. ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' followed ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''. ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' followed ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''. ''DiddyKongRacing'' followed ''VideoGame/MarioKart''. ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' followed ''VideoGame/MortalKombat''. This was evident even before ''Donkey Kong Country'' as ''VideoGame/{{Battletoads}}'' followed the ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' craze. While they have been making an effort to avoid this during their Microsoft years, the Xbox Live Avatars blatantly imitate [[{{Wii}} Miis]].

They've created some games for the UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum, for which they attained most of their early fame (as "Ultimate Play the Game"), and then for Creator/{{Nintendo}}, for which they earned their second wave of fame, but have since moved on to working under Microsoft.

Several key employees have left Rare to form the indie company Playtonic Games and make [[SpiritualSuccessor the kind of games Rare used to be famous for in the N64 era]], the first of which being ''VideoGame/YookaLaylee''.
