* DevelopmentGag: The appearance of [[VideoGame/RavingRabbids Rabbids]] in an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSlccZt5O2o in-house concept trailer]] could be a bit of a reference to the cancelled ''Rayman 4'', where they were the main mooks of the game before it turned into ''Rayman Raving Rabbids''. The level they're shown in even looks like a 2D version of early screenshots of ''Rayman 4.''



** So is it a WiiU exclusive or not? First they said yes, then no, then yes again, [[http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-02-07-wii-u-exclusive-rayman-legends-to-go-multiplatform and now they're saying no once more]]. It ended up as a multiplatform title (Wii U, X-Box 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Vita and PC) with the release delayed until September 2013.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Ubisoft confirmed Legends was delayed due to the [[http://www.gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=195748 poor status of the Wii U]] in early 2013 and the fact [[VideoGame/ZombiU Zombi U]] [[http://www.gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=207020 bombed]]. To say [[BrokenBase fans weren't happy]] is an understatement and [[InternetCounterattack the backlash]] resulted in the [[AcclaimedFlop game bombing]].

* FlipFlopOfGod: Over how much of the game the Murphy sections took up. Part of it stemmed from some of the Ubisoft staff's limited knowledge of English.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Legends [[AcclaimedFlop bombing]] was due to ExecutiveMeddling of delaying the game until nearly two weeks before the release of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' in America causing a big internet counterattack against the game.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The NFC functionality, as it has been confirmed that no launch/launch window WiiU title (including ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}: Giants'') will use it. Although time will tell if it will be patched in the future.

** The game was also meant to be exclusive to the Wii U console at first with a launch date of February 2013. The poor sales of the Wii U exclusive ''VideoGame/ZombiU'' prompted UbiSoft to make it multiplatform instead, and delayed the release of the Wii U version to coincide with the release of all other versions of the game. Wii U owners who felt this was a missed opportunity for UbiSoft to at least make the game a limited time exclusive during a "drought period" in the Wii U's early 2013 release schedule (some developers on the team even said the game was basically done at the time of the delay) [[InternetBackdraft did not take the news well]].

* ShoutOut: The fact that you enter levels via paintings should remind platformer fans of a [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 certain other platform game]].
** The mere mention of the name "Castle Rock" is one to the works of Creator/StephenKing.
** The toads in the underwater world wear ''VideoGame/SplinterCell'' goggles. This was lampshaded by Ubi at their E3 2013 press event, which placed a screenshot of said toads onstage right after the ''Splinter Cell: Blacklist'' preview ended.
** The PS Vita version of the game has an exclusive ''Prince of Persia'' costume for Rayman and a ''Splinter Cell'' costume for Globox. Likewise, the pre-order bonuses for the other consoles feature Splinter Cell and AssassinsCreed-based costumes, while the Wii U version of the game will have exclusive SuperMarioBros costumes for Rayman and Globox.
** The Sharks in 20000 Lums Under the Sea wear an outfit similar to Jaws from ''Film/Moonraker''.
** Ursula, one of the water world's princesses, is based on actress Ursula Andress' character from ''Film/DrNo''.
** In Lucha Libre Get Away, you drop the Luchador that's been chasing you throughout the level into a pit of lava, and as he sinks, he gives [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay the thumbs up.]]
** In the Toad Story levels, enemy paratroopers you encounter may hum five notes of Creator/RichardWagner's Music/RideOfTheValkyries, the background music for the helicopter scene in ''Film/ApocalypseNow''.
