Added DiffLines:

The game's plot concerns the uprising of the titular Hoodlums- red lums that have become corrupted into Black Lums. The Hoodlums have created an army to take over the world led by their leader, the superintelligent Andre. It's up to Rayman to stop them- only for Globox to accidentally ''[[SwallowedWhole eat Andre]]'', leading to Rayman's quest becoming taking Globox to the doctors so that he can release Andre from Globox's stomach and destroy him for good, preferably before Andre eats his way out of Globox.

* BaitAndSwitch: You'd think a level with the name "Land of the Livid Dead" would be some kind of horror-based level, but it's actually probably the calmest and most beautiful area in the entire game. [[spoiler: In a ''second'' BaitAndSwitch, the next level, the Desert of the Knaaren, is actually the horror based one.]]



* ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow: ''Weaponized''. Andre somehow learned something that utterly corrupted him. He captures others and whispers it to them, then lets them whisper it to others, like an intellectual ZombieApocalypse. It'd be horrific if the entire game weren't PlayedForLaughs.

[[spoiler: As it turns out, Andre was actually a red lum that was scared by Rayman's hands. He was just going around scaring all the red lums into Hoodlums to create his army.]]

The game received a direct sequel for the GameBoyAdvance, ''[[GaidenGame Rayman: Hoodlum's Revenge]]''. A GameBoyAdvance and N-Gage side-scrolling version of ''Rayman 3'' was also produced, but it has ''very'' little in common with the console version save the appearance of Andre and the occasional hoodlum, owing more to ''VideoGame/{{Rayman 2}}'' instead. A sequel to the handheld version, also on the GBA, called ''Hoodlums' Revenge'', was later produced. That game more accurately represented the console ''Rayman 3'' through an isometric viewpoint which provided gameplay in 3 dimensions. The forgettable mobile and N-Gage versions are short, original 2D platformers, not unlike the GBA version.

An HD UpdatedRerelease was made for PlaystationNetwork and XboxLiveArcade. It's missing the song "Madder" from the previous console versions, though.

* AndIMustScream: Begoniax turns her lovers into frogs and ''breeds with them'', producing all those frogs you find in the Bog of Murk. Please take some time to read the preceding statement again.

* BottomlessPitRescueService: The Teensie Highways, in which a Teensie in a helicopter is shown to be carrying Globox, who catches Rayman and drops him off at a checkpoint if he falls off. Also, in one particular boss fight, falling off of one of the narrow pathways results in one of the long-necked creatures trapped in the dungeon down below lifting Rayman up and placing him back onto the path.

** A small paper boat with the Hoodlum insignia scrawled on it can be seen floating around the river in Clearleaf Forest's waterfall area.



** [[spoiler:By hitting a round decoration in the 3rd challenge of The Longest Shortcut, Rayman can access a hidden room filled with jewels and a statue of Ly the Fairy from the previous game.]]

* GenreShift: Aside from the multiple unique gameplay variations per chapter, the game practically becomes a survival horror game when you get to the Desert of the Knaaren seeing as how they're completely invulnerable and kill you in a few hits.

The final couple levels heavily involve piloting a flying vehicle called the Armaguiddon.



* MagicMirror: The Longest Shortcut makes liberal use of these.



* MythologyGag: Remember the opening for the PC version of the first game? That's the one in which Rayman's hands crawl alone along the screen, then jump on him when he walks by. That scene is referenced in the beginning of this game. Murphy's manual also has Rayman's old design on its cover. A screenshot from the original ''Rayman'' can be seen in one of the Teensie Highways, but stretched beyond recognition.

Several characters from ''Rayman 2'' make cameo appearances in secret rooms, as well.



* NostalgiaLevel: The minigames ''2D Madness'' and ''2D Nightmare'' (the latter is gamecube only) are tributes to the original rayman game. They are based on the Dream Forest and the Picture city respectively.

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can punch Globox when he's following you around. This results in some rather entertaining otherwise-unheard quotes by both him and André (while he's inside of Globox).

* {{Squick}}: At one point, Andre says from inside Globox's belly that he [[GoIntoTheLight sees a light]] and wonders if it's the exit... and then realizes what it is and concludes that maybe he'll better stay inside.

* OffModel: Rayman is horribly off-model in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcN76CTQJIc the USA commercial]]. His torso looks like a flippin' DRESS the way it's shaped, and his eyes look different, especially when he squints his eyes. ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfVml9m5hFA Here is a link to an HD upload of it if you want to see the torso better]])

* SequelSnark: Murfy leaves saying that he'll see us in ''Rayman 4''. As of this writing, there has not been a game titled ''Rayman 4'', or, indeed, ''any'' true sequel to ''Rayman 3''.
** Well, there is a "true" sequel to ''Rayman 3'' on Game Boy Advance, ''Rayman Hoodlum Revenge'' but the gameplay is so different and the plot confused that nearly everybody doesn't see it as the real ''Rayman 4''. It is much closer to the console ''Rayman 3'' than the actual ''Rayman 3'' on the GBA, though.
** Murfy does appear in the GameBoyAdvance version of ''Rayman Raving Rabbids'', which is the closest we got to what ''Rayman 4'' was supposed to be before it turned into a party game.

Added DiffLines:

* GRatedDrug: Subverted, surprisingly. Though the term "drunk" and blatant references to alcohol are not uttered, it's directly stated that the plum juice Globox drinks is ''fermented'' and he is very, very clearly intoxicated. Of course, most little kids who play the game probably won't know what "fermented" means, so there goes another ParentalBonus for you.

*** Murfy also says "See you in Rayman 4!" which may also classify as a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen What Could Have Been]], unless ''Rayman Origins'' counts as ''Rayman 4'', as it features Murphy.
