Talk:Rayman in popular culture

I wonder if I can add a trivia inside the audiovisual publicity/television advertisings. I do remember to see back in more or less 2000/2001 a portuguese television advertising about the Nestlé's cereals of Chocapic, but more aware eyes could see the kid in the PlayStation 1 playing Rayman 2: The Great Escape. Sadly the video isn't in the internet. --Sparkle.gifHarukaSparkle.gif 17:16, 4 April 2012 (CEST)

I suppose that would be fine. Rayman advertisements don't count as popular culture, but non-Rayman ads that happen to have Rayman in them might. —Spiraldoor IconSpiralDoor.png 17:22, 4 April 2012 (CEST)
Can I have a link to the "Everybody Loves Rayman" video? I can't find it on Youtube. --iHeckler9Life.gif 18:41, 4 April 2012 (CEST) IconSpiralDoor.png 19:05, 4 April 2012 (CEST)

Supposition vs confirmed

If I'm being brutally honest, there's too many instances of "MIGHT BE" or "COULD BE" in this article.

Yes, Sour Bill has Raymanian Limbs, but as that link shows, Rayman's only a notable example of the trope. It very well could be that he's limbless for limblessnesses sake, and not in a referential manner. Likewise, "Q-bert Origins," granted, the Origins might be in reference to Rayman Origins, but I haven't seen anything that firmly proves it so, and so with the Kingdom Hearts example stated.

I'd rather see this page stick to things which are absolutely confirmed as references, and not a page tacked on with one too many of "ooh...maybe?" --Sig5 2TEST.png 17:24, 11 February 2015 (CET)

Of course, every limbless beings of the pop culture aren't based on Rayman.
If I must justify the presence of Sour Bill and the Guard Armor, I would say that:
- Wreck it Ralph is full of obvious and hidden references to video games. So the lack of limb of Sour Bill may not be insignificant
- The Guard Armor is purple (most of the time), it can throw his hands and do a spin attack
But if you think there is no place for supposition in this article, I have no objection to a correction. -- Boomboleros7 19:54, 11 February 2015 (CET)
Honestly, I'm not wholly convinced. I did some further research about the Q-Bert Origins, and found this. The episode this came in premiered November 2011, the same period RO came out. There's also some similarities towards Rayman's own unique and distinguishable features, such as his hair pattern and helicopter. While it's not wholly confirmed, I think there's a stronger case to keep this on than there is with the Raymanian Limbed examples. For now, I'll remove all three to be safe, but I'm open to and would appreciate further discussion. --Sig5 2TEST.png 19:54, 15 February 2015 (CET)
