{{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.

* CreatorThumbprint: Keys. ''Enormous'' keys, bigger and heavier than the characters, the most famous being the infamous ice key from ''VideoGame/{{Banjo-Kazooie}}'' / ''Banjo Tooie''. Both ''VideoGame/DiddyKongRacing'' and ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' feature gigantic gold keys as {{plot coupon}}s; finding or using a key is always a momentous occasion. ''VideoGame/AticAtac'' was all about finding the four small(ish - they're the same size as a wrench) keys that unlocked the [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience doors]] to find the ACG Master Key, a gold key ''that took up your entire inventory''.

* 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/{{Banjo-Kazooie}}'' 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]].
* GottaCatchThemAll: The trend started in the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' series, where progressively more and more items were needed to attain OneHundredPercentCompletion. Later, ''VideoGame/{{Banjo-Kazooie}}'', while a great game, had a rather large number of collectibles. Finally, ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' took things UpToEleven.
