- This article is about the skins in Rayman M and Rayman Raving Rabbids. For the skins in the UbiArt games, see List of heroes and costumes in UbiArt games.
Skins are alternative options which can be used to modify the appearance of a character in Rayman M and Rayman Raving Rabbids. They usually serve as aesthetic options only, and have little or no bearing to the plot in which they feature in.
Skins are unlocked in Rayman M and Arena. Most of the characters earn them in Rayman M, but all characters get a skin in Rayman Arena. Each character unlocks up to three skins in Rayman M, but in Rayman Arena, all competitors have four skins each, except for Dark Globox, Rayman, Tily, Razorbeard and Razorwife, who only get one. Each skin (but Rayman's) changes the beat for the character's theme to what it is most suited to (e.g., Globox has his strawberry skin and is racing in the Extreme League. The beat for the Extreme League racing is fast, and the beat for the Advanced League is light and watery. Globox's skin will change the beat from the Extreme League to the Advanced League.). But if it is in its League, it will change to the Beginner League's beat (thumping in the background). The skins do not have this effect on battles. It is unnoticeable, but may be true that the skins in their league make the event slightly easier.
The PlayStation adaptation; Rayman Rush claims that there are skins included in the game, however, no skins are known to be accessible, and characters only have their one normal skin.
Razorbeard's first skin is him covered everywhere with very dark navy blue, apart from his buckle, which is gold, and his eyes, which are glowing red. The second skin is all of his clothes are coloured blue and white in stripes, his hat is completely blue, apart from the skull and crossbones which is white, he also has a slight shade of blue on his head. The third is all his body rusty with clothes colored red and the fourth is his hat and clothes all in black.
Globox's Advanced League skin is him having a strawberry colour scheme skin. His Expert League skin is him wearing Rayman's shirt, which doesn't fit him, and Rayman's topaz colour skin. His Extreme League skin leaves on his head and the same colour skin for his body, making him look almost identical to Kermit the Frog. In Rayman Arena, he has other skins, one which is him having yellow skin all over him, apart from his head, and is blue flowered, and another which is him wearing a white and black striped jacket and pants, a white shirt and a black tie, in an homage to the title character of Tim Burton's film Beetlejuice. One of his scrapped skins is similar to Superman's outfit.
Henchman 800's Advanced League skin is a metallic green, and a small, human like eye, with his other completely pink, which could be possibly a brain. His Expert League is a gold and dark red paint job. His Extreme League skin is a wooden plating and hints of green paint. In Rayman Arena, his whole body is painted with silver, with a few holes in his arms and chin. He is also painted with a few strips of red.
The Teensies Advanced League skin is them wearing cream colour clothes, a green crown with a hint of purple at the top and red skin. Their Expert League skin is them wearing blue robes and a blue crown. They still have a white skin but have larger eyes. Their Extreme League skin is them wearing leapord skin robes and crown, and their skin is brown.
Henchman 1000's Advanced League skin is a fine silver body with a purple hat and legs, and his eyes are bright yellow. His Expert League skin is a red and yellow paint job. His Extreme League skin is yellow and green paint job with black dots over his body and wonky eyes.
One of Razorwife's skins is her hair and her sunglasses is now gold, and she now wears a silver dress.
In Rayman Raving Rabbids there are several costume sets, each with four different parts which can be equipped.
Rayman with no costumes on.
After Rayman defeats a boss, he is awarded with a medal that represents a new costume he will be able to change into. Each costume gives him a new ability, while making him not being able to use any old ones like using his helicopter.
|Gangster||Has a very powerful jump, enabling Rayman to break or smash certain elements on the ground.|
|Punk||Can glue objects or enemies with the help of his chewing gum.|
|Grandmother||Drops carrots on the ground, which distract the Rabbids while they eat them.|
|Rocker||Capable of very powerful close attacks with his guitar.|
|Funky||Has a glowing fist, even stronger than Rayman's Super Fist.|
The Nintendo DS version of Rayman Raving Rabbids features multiple costumes which give Rayman certain abilities to help clear obstacles in the levels. The costumes are equipped when standing on a magical stone with the symbol corresponding to the costume. Each costume has a specific color and element.
In the challenges, they are switched around when the player presses a button that is assigned to a certain costume.
- Granny (Earth): Creates a giant boulder that can be pushed and then jumped on to reach higher places. Enemies can be squashed while it is being pushed. In the challenge stages, it is used to break, press and drag boxes that are marked with a green X or O.
- Punk (Fire): Generates bombs that Rayman can carry and throw at either enemies or at red doors that only bombs can destroy. In the challenge stages, it is used to burn away chains that hold wooden planks up or down, as well as destroying all enemies including a red demon that only fire can destroy.
- Disco (Wind): Makes clouds visible enough to walk on. It is used in the challenge stages to turn fans that move wooden planks up, down or forward.
- Elvis (Ice): Equips Rayman with three blocks of ice that are used to freeze flaming walls, weak bridges and enemies. In the challenge stages, it freezes sandpits, geysers and waterfalls for Rayman to walk on.
