Rayman in popular culture
This is a list of works in popular culture which make references to the Rayman series.
Rayman was featured on their billboard adverts promoting their 4G connectivity.
The Lapins Crétins
Enfer & Parodie
This series of Yohann Morin, Jean-Christophe Almodovar and Thomas Borginet features many characters from popular culture in humorous situations.
The cover of the first volume presents several Rabbids.
In the second volume, Rayman appears page 29.
In the third volume, Rabbids appear page 18.
Joueur du Grenier
Rayman was parodied in a comic strip in the second volume of Joueur du Grenier.
That animated sketch comedy television series featured an episode entitled "Adventures of TaunTaun / Everyone Loves Rayman". The latter segment is a combined parody of the Rayman series and the American sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.
Les Guignols de l'Info
The 29 October of 2014, the show has made a parody of Rayman Raving Rabbids : Sarko et les Soutiens Crétins.
Nestlé's Chocapic 2001 portuguese commercial
In 2001, a portuguese television commercial for the Chocapic cereals showed a kid playing Rayman 2: The Great Escape in a PlayStation.
This is a Ubisoft game on which Rayman creator Michel Ancel worked. It was developed prior to Rayman 2: The Great Escape, largely in order to test the engine planned for use in that game. All characters in Tonic Trouble are limbless, like Rayman's species. Rayman himself appears briefly during the end credits of the PC version of the game.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within
Asterix & Obelix XXL 2: Mission Las Vegum
That game features Roman legionaries based on several popular video game characters, including Mario, Sonic, Pac-Man and Rayman. A painting that can be seen on a wall shows a Rayman legionary pulling a rabbit out of a hat, despite the fact that the game was released a year before Rayman Raving Rabbids.
In this Ubisoft game, Rayman appears alongside other characters of the company: The Prince of Persia, Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell, Altaïr from Assassin's Creed, Jade from Beyond Good & Evil and Rabbids. Rayman plays as a goalkeeper. In the shop, the player can buy Rayman-styled hat and gloves. Finally, if the player speaks with Rayman, he sometimes mentions Globox.
Just Dance 2015
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS
In episodes 13 and 14 of season 2 of the web series, the Necromancer, boss of the second floor of the Galamadryabuyak tower, holds a strange skull. This is actually the head of Gumsi's staff. You could find this accessory on Rayman real-life sized statues produced during the release of Rayman 3.
