Rare Ltd., is a Twycross-based (though they started in Ashby-de-la-Zouch) [[VideoGames video game]] development company founded by Chris and Tim Stamper in [[TheEighties 1982]]. They're famous for their pioneering of sophisticated technology to make video games, the sheer amount of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar crap they get past the radar,]] [[UrbanLegendOfZelda the idiosyncratic little mysteries they weave into their games that leave gamers pondering for decades,]] and their media-shy nature.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Even former employees agree that Microsoft's micro-management of the company has hurt their business. To contrast, Rare made tons of games under Nintendo, yet it has probably only made about ten or fewer games for the entirety of their Microsoft ownership. Prior to ''Kinect Sports'' and the restructuring, Rare made just as many games for Nintendo's portable consoles as it did for Microsoft's home consoles.
** ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'' was originally going to be Rare's original IP called Dinosaur Planet, and for the N64. However, early in development, Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto saw the notes, noticed the main character looked similar to [[VideoGame/StarFox Fox McCloud]], and convinced them to make it a ''VideoGame/StarFox'' game for the Gamecube instead. This would be the last game they made before leaving Nintendo.



* 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/DonkeyKongCountry1'' 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]].



* PromotedFanboy: In the UsefulNotes/{{E3}} 2016 gameplay trailer for ''VideoGame/SeaOfThieves'', two of the members of crew 3 are Chad [=McCanna=] and Hyle Russell, diehard Rare fans who are best known for ''Series/ElvisAndSlickMonty'' and ''Website/DKVine''.

* 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.
