* On the North American boxart of the game, there is a typo in which the apostrophe is placed between the word "Hoodlum" and the letter 's', making the subtitle seem as if there is only one [[Hoodlum]] rather than a group of them.
There is a continuity era present in the first level of the game. Whilst Murphy is instructing Rayman, he explains the helicopter ability, causing Rayman to remind Murphy that "I've been able to glide like that my whole life". In fact, Rayman does not possess that ability at the begining of any version of the original game, and gains it after the first couple of levels. It is worth noting of course that the cannonicity of the original game is shakey, as well as clips of [[Rayman Origins]] (a prequel) showing Rayman using his helicopter. It is possible that this will be retconned after Origins is released.
