Muse of the poets (ancestor)
No one knows why the little Tufkins, who are famously bad climbers, trecked up in the frigid mountain realms. When they're not yodeling, these Teensies are busy constructing a ski lift network for the whole village.—Official website, Rayman 3
The Tufkins, to be fit for the cold weather of the Summit Beyond the Clouds, are tightly dressed up in thick white clothing, with brown boots and hats with feathers on top. They wear the same clothing in the Tower of the Leptys, suggesting that it's their regular choice of clothing. Unlike all of the other tribes of Teensies, their hands are not seen.
In Rayman 3
The Tufkins make their first appearance in the second phase of the Summit Beyond the Clouds as the primary tribe captured in that level. They also appear along with the Nookins in the Tower of the Leptys. When they are saved by Rayman, instead of using their hands (which are not seen) to create a useful object, they use their nose as if they were sneezing.
- I have to go finish my snowman.
- I have to go, you know!
- I have to go, but not too fast!
- I have to go wash my goldfish.
- I have to go make my bed.
- I have to go shake my groove thing.
A certain group of Tufkins in the Tower of the Leptys do not give Rayman something after they are saved; they immediately disappear after they do their dance. This is the only time that happens in Rayman 3.
