One day, he was revealed as a trophy in one of the Pic of the Day Screenshots. Many people joked that Rayman appeared to be under the influence of drugs in his trophy. However, the trophy was changed later for the final game. A trophy of Rayman's friends, Globox and Barbara, were also included into the game.
The Rayman Leak of 2015
On February 13th, images surfaced on 4chan depicting a very convincing Rayman render on the roster, character select screen, and unlock screen. Many believed this to be fake until the next day, when a YouTube user named "Saint Valentine" posted a 20 second video of Rayman being selected on the character select screen (which also had Mewtwo on it). The flames in the background seemed impossible to replicate, although there were some kinks, and on this day everyone changed their mind about the leak's legitimacy. The next day, Ubisoft said they'd look into this leak and make a public announcement about it on Tuesday. An hour later, a YouTube user by the name of Artsy Omni uploaded a video showing how he faked the entire leak. This made tons of Rayman fans salty, saying that the fake leaker deserves to die in several horrible ways.
