From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

Rayman is the protagonist of the Ubisoft platformer series of the same name. Rayman follows the titular limbless hero as he saves the Glade of Dreams countless times from different villains, usually starring his friends such as Globox and Barbara. The series has also seen many spin-offs, notably the Rabbids.

The Rayman series has been notable for not just its well beloved games, but its misfortune as a series in spite of that. Not only has the Rayman series not seen a new installment since Rayman Legends in 2013, but the afforementioned Rabbids would end up overshadowing him and becoming popular mascots for the company. He would also be the target of shitposting in Smash Bros. threads due to his status as a forgotten cartoon platformer mascot and namesake of the notorious Rayman hoax.

Tournament History[edit]

Rayman's tournament history would find its small beginnings in 2022. Here, Rayman would make an effort in the qualifiers, but be kept out of the tournament by only a single vote, adding to his misfortune as a character.

2023 would mark his first true debut for two major reasons. First, Rayman would reappear in the Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC, Rayman in the Phantom Show to the joy of long waiting fans. Later and more controversially however, he would also appear in the Netflix show Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix. In the show, Rayman would swear, adopt the edgy persona "Ramon" to go on a shooting spree, and of course, eat sushi off a naked cowgirl. The absurdity of the show and his characterization would naturally lead to countless memes, and likely helped boost Rayman into finally qualifying for King of /v/. Although the Netflix show would not end up heavily defining Rayman's presence in the end, his fans would still rally together in hoping to secure Rayman a match in the Elite Eight to recreate the famous sushi scene.

After a particularily fitting matchup with Shadow the Hedgehog, Rayman would go on to defeat Big Daddy and Donkey Kong. In Round 4, the limbless hero would face off against Elite gatekeeper Pepsiman. After an eventful round of banter from both sides, Rayman would find himself victorious and enter the Elite Eight. Notably, this would also make him the first character to make the Elite Eight in his debut year since the previous champion Batter (or Jack Garland if considered separate from Garland's 2021 run). This celebration would be short lived, as he would be promptly eliminated by fellow Elite newcomer Demi-fiend and rank 8th overall. Ultimately, Rayman fans would be happy with his comeback and stellar results for a fresh face, as well as pairing with Taokaka and getting the long desired sushi art.

Rayman and his huge features will be eligible to return in King of /v/ 2025.
