* FloatingLimbs: Rayman was originally drawn with limbs in early concept art, but these were discarded in order to make Rayman easier to animate. Curiously, unlike the games from ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}'' and onward, Rayman's limbless design is not unique to himself, but is shared with many other characters and enemies in the game.

* BigDamnHeroes: During the final boss battle, Mr. Dark has stolen Rayman's fist and has him trapped between two pillars of fire, and is just about to roast him, when two electoons fly in and drop Rayman's fist to him, canceling out the flame and getting Rayman ready for the real battle.

* InstantWinCondition: Reaching a sign and initiating the victory jingle will stop incoming attacks or hazards like rising water or lava, enemies or bosses chasing you, or airborne attacks of any variety. And if you grab the last ting in a bonus stage, you'll win even if you jumped off a cliff to get it.

->''"In Rayman's world, nature and people live together in peace. The Great Protoon provides and maintains the harmony and balance in the world. Sorry Folks, this apparently can't last. One fateful day, the evil Mister Dark steals the Great Protoon and defeats Betilla the Fairy as she tries to protect it! The Electoons, who used to gravitate around it, lose their natural stability and scatter all over the world! Troublesome, isn't it? And untidy, too!"''

->''"In the now-unbalanced world, strange phenomena begin to occur: freaks and hostile characters appear, capturing every Electoon they can find! They definitely need a hero to save them now, don't you think? Rayman to the rescue! Go, and free all of the electoons, Rayman! And bring back the Great Protoon from its mysterious kidnapper! ...but will the bad guys let him do it?..."''

* TheVoiceless: Rayman himself has no dialogue, aside from the ports where he exclaims "No Problem!" in the opening, screams "HELP!" when he dies, and shouts "YEAH!" when he touches a goalpost.

* MirrorMatch: Dark Rayman in the last level, though you don't have to fight him. He copies everything you do, and touching him causes both of you to die instantly. The only way to win is to beat the level, at which point he collapses and "dies" like Rayman does.

Added DiffLines:

* WeaksauceWeakness: The tall Livingstone enemies have a particularly hilarious one - if Rayman ''makes a face'' at them, they [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere turn around and run for their lives]].

* SelectiveGravity: Tings and miscellaneous power-up items found in the game are a perfect example of this. Also, the floating rings.
* SequenceBreaking: Of sorts. You can get the helicopter ability before you get the grappling ability which makes some platforming parts of Moskitos Nest a little easier. However, you CANNOT make it past the first stage of Twilight Gulch until you have the grappling ability.

* GuideDangIt: CAGES. To clarify, cages are invisible until you find the triggers for them, which are also invisible. Not even knowing the sound cue helps, because they can also trigger other things. And there are a LOT of cages.

* LastLousyPoint - in order to reach the last level, you need to find every single cage in each level. Frequently you'll have only two or three after passing the level for the first time, and only five after a thorough search. Time for an even more thorough search.

** To elaborate on how different this game is to the others, Rayman had SphereEyes and wasn't the only one of his kind, Globox, the Teensies and the Lums didn't exist and The Magician, who was a Teensy in VideoGame/RaymanOrigins, was originally part of Rayman's race.

Gameplay wise, Rayman dosen't start out with his helicopter hair, which can throw off newcomers who played the sequels, where that power is a default gameplay mechanic.
