- The Original Darrin: After being replaced with Joe Sheridan for Rayman M and John Leguizamo for Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc as the voice of Globox, Doug Rand returns to voice Globox again here.
- Sequel Gap: Eight years between Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc (2003) and this game (2011). Heck, even if you're willing to count platformer spinoffs like Hoodlum's Revenge and the Game Boy Advance version of Rayman Raving Rabbids, that still leaves five years between this game and GBA Raving Rabbids (2006).
- Talking to Himself: Voice actor Douglas Rand voices all the male characters.
- What Could Have Been: There was going to be a world based on different art styles, but it was scrapped very early on.
- The game was originally going to be a prequel to the first Rayman, meant to tie it and Rayman 2 together, now it's a sequel that takes place sometime after Rayman 2. It still reveals the actual origins of some of the characters, though.
- While the game doesn't explain the origins of Rayman himself, the Playstation Vita version of the game features two mosaics, one about Rayman's past with his ex-wife/girlfriend and the reason for his helicopter hair, and the other about how Globox, a former Red Wizard, turned blue.
- This was also meant to be a downloadable episodic title, but the game's scale grew so much that it had to be made into a full retail game.
- Judging from how Big Mama was shown in early trailers, it seems like she was going to be a boss in the main story, as opposed to being a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere. Her true form was also going to be a middle-aged female Glute (Globox's species) instead of a young nymph.
- There's an unused song titled The Final Showdown. All we know of it is that it was meant for a final battle with what might have been Mr. Dark, instead of the The Magician's Warship as the final boss in the main game.
- The game has an unused script which explains the plot, and revealing the Magician's name as well as his motivation for his FaceHeel Turn.
