The Flaming Teensy is an unlockable Teensy character in Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. 80 Electoons are needed to unlock him at the Snoring Tree. He is one of the many confused Grand Minimus scattered through the Glade of Dreams, but wears a black coat with fire patterns and has a physically altered body.

Unlike most of the unlockable characters in Rayman Origins, the Flaming Teensy plays a substantial role in-game. He can be found on the level-selection map of each world, standing alongside the entrances to the Chest chase levels. His role is simply to tell the player how many Electoons are required to access these levels. The Flaming Teensy is the only playable character to feature full dialogues; he speaks in Pig Latin. For unknown reasons, when the player plays as the Flaming Teensy, a clone of this character can still be seen on the world map indicating the locations of the Tricky Treasures. It is possible that there are many Flaming Teensies in the Glade.

It seems that the Flaming Teensy was originally a regular Teensy King, or perhaps even one of the four Grand Minimus. As mentioned by the Bubble Dreamer, he was tortured by the inhabitants of the Infernal Kitchen in the Gourmand Land. He has crooked teeth, a broken nose and several physical anomalies, like claws on his fingers, red eyes, chest hair and light-green skin; his crown also seems to be deformed. Seeing his appearance, the Bubble Dreamer motivates him to stay positive, then retires him from his reign and suggests him to go see the world.

During earlier development, the Flaming Teensy was intended to have a Frosty Delight-themed counterpart, who at the same time, was supposed to act as Teensette's male counterpart. This character was scrapped in the final version of the game.

In Rayman Legends, it is revealed that despite of all of his negative experiences in the Infernal Kitchen, the Flaming Teensy still adores spicy food and flames.
