The Chief is a character that would have appeared in the 2D version of Rayman 2 had it not been cancelled. His appearance is similar to that of the General from the final Rayman 2 release.


The Chief is a blue-ish coloured limbless robot with a strange looking orb-like circle on his body. In promotional photos he can be seen with a cigar hanging from his mouth. He also seems to wear a visor with a small orange beam over his eyes.

In the cancelled 2D version of Rayman 2

The Chief, as supported by a promotional video and photos, was intended to be the main villain of the 2D game. With his other robot servants, he was going to convert the Glade of Dreams into a cold ball of metal. In an artwork piece, it shows the Chief on a wrecking ball giving orders to his robot servants while Rayman is sneaking. This concept is similar to Admiral Razorbeard and his Robo-Pirate army in the final game, the former who was presumably the replacement for the Chief as the main villain.

Relationship with the General

The General, as seen in Rayman 2.

Main article: the General

The General, a minor character featured in Rayman 2, has a very similar look to the Chief. It is possible that the General is actually the Chief with a different look, or he is only an inspiration from the Chief. The General's role in Rayman 2 is very small, as he only appears in a short cutscene with Admiral Razorbeard. This is compared to the Chief's projected role, as he would have been either a prominent character or the main villain that Rayman had to defeat.
