* ElixirOfLife: At one point, Rayman meets a sick-looking Clark at the Menhir Hills. Clark explains to Rayman that he must have swallowed something bad for him, and he needs a life potion, hidden near the entrance of the Marshes of Awakening, in a place called the Cave of Bad Dreams. Jano, the guardian of the Cave of Bad Dreams, won't let you in if you don't know its name. After defeating Jano, Rayman returns to the Menhir Hills with the elixir, and Clark is back to his normal self.

Out of all these ports, the most comprehensive is the [=PS2=] version, retitled ''Rayman Revolution'' (''Rayman 2: Revolution'' in North America) and featuring a whole new [[HubLevel hub-world]] to explore, along with a graphical update and a slew of new minigames.

* ThatRussianSquatDance: Rayman and a Teensie indulge in this when completing a level, [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment for some reason]]. Probably a ritual that enables the portal.

* BootstrappedTheme: Rayman's theme in this game would end up being synonymous with the series for quite some time. Come ''Rayman 3'' this would dwindle down, but it stuck around for nearly ''four'' of the handheld adaptations (the two UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor games, ''Rayman 3'' on the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, and ''Rayman: The Hoodlums' Revenge''). Downplayed since all of the main series games haven't kept this as the theme (and even ''VideoGame/RaymanM'' didn't keep it), but it still deserves mention when nearly all the handheld spinoffs released after treated it as the main theme.
