Chilli Peppers are gigantic, sentient red chilli peppers with golden bracelets that inhabit the Mexican-themed Infernal Kitchens of the Gourmand Land in Rayman Origins.

They can be found sleeping in pots full of lava, as hot streams of lava drip out of their mouth intermittently as they snore. The heroes must avoid the fiery snoring and attack them in order to advance. There are only two Chilli Peppers that appear as enemies in the game: one at the end of the level 'Aim for the Eel!', and another one in the level 'Dragon Soup'.

In 'Aim for the Eel', Rayman and his Moskito must face the sleeping Chilli Pepper before leaving the Gourmand Land; 10 moskito shots are required to beat him, and the Chilli Pepper can't be sucked up by the Moskito.

In 'Dragon Soup', the remaining Chilli Pepper is situated at the end of the penultimate phase of the area; in order to reach him, players must jump on beans without touching the dangerous lava, avoid several trap forks, and scale through floating spoon to get to the top of the area, awhile avoiding the Chilli Pepper's fiery snoring. The player(s) then must use a chain of small chillis attached to the roof to reach him without touching his pool and jump on his head.

Although they aren't actively hostile, as they're always seen asleep before being attacked, the Chilli Peppers are known by the Bubble Dreamer as a notorious gang of troublemakers in Gourmand Land that bullied & deformed a hostage Flaming Teensy by forcibly feeding him spicy food.

A larger Chilli Pepper wearing a crown and a medallion can be seen as a background element during the second trailer of the game, but never makes an appearance in the final release of Origins. However, he is still present within the game's files, where his name is listed as the Jalapeño King.


  • Upon defeat, the Chilli Peppers use the Wilhelm Scream. An overused stock scream sfx that originates from the 1951 film, Distant Drums, and has since become a reoccurring inside-joke in films, TV shows, games, etc.
  • They're one of the few enemies in-game that don't bubblize when defeated. Instead, they're only temporarily stunned, before fainting & slowly sinking down into their pot.
  • Chilli Peppers seem to be based on the Jalapeño Peppers from Tonic Trouble, another game Rayman creator, Michel Ancel, worked on.


  1. The exact resistance of the Chilli Pepper in Aim for the Eel! is 5/2 (2.5) hit points. It takes ten mosquito shots to defeat.
