* NightmareFuel:
** Most of "Swimming with Stars" since it's the first level that isn't whimsical and cheery like everything else up to that point. If the creepy enemies didn't get you, then the oppressive darkness and [[http://hosting.raymanpc.com/raytunes/music/077%20-%20Sea%20of%20Serendipity%20~%20The%20Abyss.mp3 haunting music]] will.
** The music of the swimming levels in general. For the most part, it's ridiculously cheerful. However, for one reason or another, the creator of the music apparently thought that it would be a good idea to include what sounds like one of the singers ''drowning while singing''. And try to [[PlayedForLaughs play it for laughs]], even.
** [[spoiler:Some of The Magician's comments when you bop his top hat foreshadow his villainous qualities, or at least that he's not nearly as nice as other characters.]]


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic[=/=]EarWorm: The soundtrack, composed by Christophe Heral of ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'' fame.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kFgQRiCIZ0 "Tricky Treasure"]] (which also got put to good use in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Js3nXKuErg the E3 trailer]]) successfully combines more 'orchestral' strings and jazzy horn sections with 'bluegrassy' banjos and fiddles. The fact these levels are [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin intentionally very difficult]] means this theme will become an earworm, whether you like it or not.

* GoddamnedBats: Pufferfish. So damn much. The timing to hit them is off, and it will take up to 5 seconds for them to retract the spikes again.

* ShockingSwerve: [[spoiler:The Magician being evil comes out of nowhere and with little to no foreshadowing. Granted, there is a reason in the beta script, but that isn't in the game now, is it?]]
* SpiritualLicensee: This, and its sequel (or sequels, if a third game is released), is one of the best Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog games ever made.
* ThatOneLevel: Some of [[UnexpectedShmupLevel the Moskito levels]] can reach near-BulletHell levels at points.
** Sweet mother of Christ, Mecha No Mistake [[MemeticMutation is too damn hard.]] Unlike the rest of the game, which is rather fairly designed, every way you can die in this level just SCREAMS FakeDifficulty, especially in the sections with the crushers and the light-up platforms. And good god, the Time Trial is near impossible. Some people consider it even harder than the Land of the Livid Dead itself!

** [[spoiler: Rayman dancing with The Magician at the twist is also as ridiculous joke, until you realize that back at the first Rayman game released in 1995, every boss you defeat than starts dancing to show that they befriended Rayman.

* PortingDisaster: Averted. the Wii version is still just as fun as the HD versions.
** In fact, the only real difference beyond the obvious was a small bit of music. Yes, really.
** The portable versions, however, don't have multiplayer at all. Particularly strange with the UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita version, where the system heavily touts its network features, though the Vita version is a fine port otherwise.
** The UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS version is an ObviousBeta, with numerous glitches, audio issues and game quality. Not to mention the fact that the penultimate level is completely missing, and '''NONE''' of the Teensies are playable at all.
