Humans are the dominant species of planet Earth. They are rarely seen during the Rayman series, but they are frequent in the Raving Rabbids series, in particular in Rabbids Go Home because a big part of the events focusing on the Rabbids are set on Earth. They are first encountered in the spin-off title Rayman Dictées but canonically appear for the first time in Rayman Legends.
Humans made some appearances during the series, but their look changes game to game. In Rayman Dictées they have a cartoonized look that tries to recreate the real world humans' aspect. The mouths and the noses of the men are usually big, but the women's ones are smaller. Both males and females have black pupils. The humans in this game have a different physical appearance that makes some of them look strong, others fat, others thin. In Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 humans are seen in the intro and in the Bunny Hunt minigames. By the fact that real world graphics are used, the humans present are real. In Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party they are all portrayed as male fighters. They are fat, tall, with small legs and with dots for eyes. In Rabbids Go Home humans share a similar traits with the ones from the precedent title, like the dot-eyes, but they are all thin, even the fighters. In this game, unlike the predecessor, there are also women. In Raving Rabbids Travel In Time humans share a similar appearance to the real world ones; in fact some of them represent famous historical personalities.
The humans' personality varies person to person. Some are nasty, some are nice, but most of them share similar traits. In Rabbids Go Home all the humans are described as spending their lives like a big party driving safely and curiously, working hard and shopping till you drop. They seem also to be very attached to their stuff and cleaning maniacs. Some of them are dressed in a rubber suit to avoid being contaminated by Rabbids. As seen in this game and in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, they all seem to be scared of the Rabbids, but in Raving Rabbids Travel In Time only some of them are, like the professor in the museum. In this game, in fact, most of the people just ignore Rabbids or are not conscious of their presence. In Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party the only humans present are fighters that are not scared of them. People can also be cooperative, because in Rabbids Go Home they work together to get rid of the invaders.
Humans speak different languages all around the world, but they can't understand Raymanian that is spoken in Rayman's world. However, Rayman can speak some human languages as seen in the Nintendo DS version of Rayman Raving Rabbids 2. Clara the Witch may be the only human that can speak Raymanian, as seen in Rayman Dictées when she speaks with Rayman, but it is unclear what language they are speaking.
Role in the game
In Rayman Dictées, the witch Clara asks Rayman for help, because she has accidentally frozen all the humans from the feet to the torso. Some human characters like Patrick, Gaaf, Tim, Junior, Landra, and Sam make an appearance during the game.
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
In Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, humans make appearances as real world people only in the introduction and in the Bunny Hunt minigames. In the introduction a journalist named Jennifer Art from Paris tells that large yellow submarines have been identify all around the world. She asks who are they, where do they come from, and what do they want. After that a group of Rabbids jump out of a submarine scaring all the people and beating up the journalist. In the Bunny Hunt minigames, humans are seen running away from the Rabbids.
Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party
In Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party the only humans present are fighters. They appear in the minigame Missfit, and in Rabbid Wrestling they serves as obstacles. Real world American football players also make a cameo inside Rayman's television in the ending cinematic.
Rabbids Go Home
Rabbids Go Home is the game in the series with the greatest focus on humans. The Rabbids decide to build a pile to the moon and to do this they start collecting all kinds of stuff they can take. Humans are scared of the Rabbids and do not want them to destroy their life. Some of them called Verminators decided to wear big rubber clothes to protect themselves from the Rabbids and to try to stop them. They also used dogs and robots for their intentions. During the game are encountered a lot of stereotypes and some facts are focused on particular human characters. For example, an ill, old man placed inside a bubble bed will be taken several times by the Rabbids for their pile and during the game he and her nurse will fall in love and marry. Other characters focused on are a business owner and his secretary. The Rabbids frequently enter in the business owner's office with the involuntary help of his secretary to steal some of his important stuff. At the end, they also steal his strongbox, but he fights with all his strength to prevent this. At the end humans succeed in getting rid of the Rabbids, making them fly to the moon with the help of some bombs. The humans in this game have a skinny appearance, with not much muscle and wrinkles.
Humans appear also in Raving Rabbids Travel In Time. A lot of historical personalities and stereotypical characters from the past are present. Inside the museum is also a professor that tries in every way to escape from the Rabbids. They seem unaware of the Rabbids, not being scared of them. Only the professor in the museum is frightened of them. The humans have a realistic appearance, having wrinkles and muscles.
In Rayman Origins, several characters from previous games return, but differing from their original appearance similar to Rayman's species, most of them are given limbs and turned into different species, possibly to make Rayman unique after the changes made in Rayman 2. While the Magician was redesigned to be a Teensie, the Hunters were redesigned as humans. Rayman Origins is the first non-spin-off game in the series to have humans in it. Nymphs particularly resemble humans, as much as Livingstones resemble humans with green skin.
