Crowned Teensies are a variety of Teensie that first appear in Rayman 2: Revolution and later in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. Their appearance is identical to both the crowned and crownless members of the Grand Minimus, which first appeared in Rayman 2: The Great Escape. While the Grand Minimus has been confirmed as ruling over all the Teensies, these additional Teensie royals appear to be at most governors from how they were portrayed in Revolution. This is only conjecture, as little is told of these Teensies' backgrounds.
The royal variety of Teensies are identical in every way to the Grand Minimus. They wear elegant green robes, and most wear crowns; those who don't are always accompanied by at least one other Teensie with a crown. Some of this variety, such as the governing Teensie of the Minisaurus Plains' Teensie Circle, are known to be easily excited and quick to deny such. By doing the Teensie Dance with Teensie Gatekeepers, crowned Teensies are able to create Magic Spiral Doors.
Role in the Games
Rayman 2: Revolution
Crowned Teensies oversee the Teensie Circles that serve as World Terminuses in Revolution. Whenever Rayman completes a level, the Teensie of the corresponding Teensie Circle creates a Spiral Door and then tells Rayman what he must do next. If Rayman ever forgets his next objective, he may always return to the Teensie for a re-briefing. It is in this way that Rayman learns of Ly the Fairy and Globox's locations. Rayman first meets one of these Teensies after the Grand Minimus send him to the Minisaurus Plains.
In addition to the Teensies that patrol the Teensie Circles, crown-wearing Teensies run the Magic Wells. Whenever Rayman arrives at a Magic Well, one of these Teensies will explain the controls to navigate the well's menu. If Rayman purchases something from the well, the Teensie will create a Silver Lum and grant Rayman the purchased ability.
Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc
The crowned Teensies confirm their variety status in Rayman 3. They dot the throne room of the Grand Minimus, dancing to the disco music filling the room's air. They next appear in the Desert of the Knaaren, where a king and two advisors warn Rayman about the Knaaren. In both the desert and later the Hoodlum Headquarters and Tower of the Leptys, a king and two advisors drop down from any cage that Rayman destroys, leaving either jewels or a Laser Washing Powder can.
