If Tily had indeed never existed…

Post by PluMGMK »

A lot of people have expressed a wish to live in that alternative universe, in which Ly's animations and physics were somehow successfully adapted to Rayman M's gameplay, and there was never any need to create the character of Tily.

Let's indulge this notion for a moment – in that case, what sort of theme tune would this multiplayer-adapted Ly have had? It's hard to imagine that it would have ended up sounding like Tily's theme did, because the characters are quite different. It probably also wouldn't have sounded like her theme from Rayman 2, since that doesn't really suit a race setting. Plus, the Teensies' theme in Rayman M sounds very different to their theme in Rayman 2, so surely the same would have happened to Ly.

I don't know, maybe this is a useless topic, but it's been bothering me for a while, and I wonder if anyone else has thought about it. :P

Maybe Ly's race theme could have been a remix or sped up version of the Ly's Palace theme, if you listen to it at 1.75x or 2x speed, I think it still sounds pretty good:

It's a pretty cool tune, but I wonder if it's a bit too unsettling to be a race theme for someone who was on the good side in Rayman 2?

None of the character themes really sound similar to the Rayman 2 themes. A Rayman M Ly theme would probably have some elements that the composer put into the Tily theme, but I guess with less high-pitched instruments and a more mystical vibe. I think themes like Rise and Shrine or Spellbound Forest would fit as Ly's race theme a lot, if their tone was a bit happier overall to fit the other race themes.

The Spellbound Forest theme definitely gives me Ly vibes.
