* EvilCounterpart: PlayedWith in the case of Dark Rayman and Glombrox, Rayman and Globox's respective counterparts: the Bubble Dreamer states them as such, but gameplay-wise they're no different from the originals.

* KillEnemiesToOpen: In order to rescue the [[PlotCoupon Electoons]], you need to dissipate bubbles of dark energy surrounding them by killing the enemies connected to it, (as [[LampshadedTrope it seems their life-force is the thing powering the barrier via streams of darkness]]) before smashing their steel cages to bits.

* AllThereInTheManual: The [[http://raymanorigins.us.ubi.com/# website]] gives some added back story on some of the characters, such as why Rayman has no limbs (the Nymphs got distracted and lost some of the Lums they needed.) and where the Darktoons came from (the Bubble Dreamer had a nightmare for the first time that created them by the dozens).

* SequenceBreaking: After you die eight times in a row, the games allows you to go to the next level. Of course some levels are unskipable like the one where you get new abilities and the Boss areas but speedrunners heavily use this trick as you only have to get 130 electoon points in order to go to the Moudy Cloud.
** It's even possible to complete the game with only 50 electoons. When you reach the "Riding the Storm" level for the first time, you can use the multiplayer mode in order to kill yourself eight times then you go to the next level wich means you have skipped the entire second half of the game!

Released in 2011, ''Rayman Origins'' is a sequel to the long-dormant ''{{Franchise/Rayman}}'' series. As the story goes, it takes place in a world called The Glade of Dreams created by a being known as Bubble Dreamer (Polokus from Rayman 2), who was so attached to his world, that his emotions directly impacted it. Rayman was created by Betilla from the magic of Nymphs to be a guardian of this world.
