* With the intention of finding a weird name for the character, the scenarist David Neiss gave it its final name a year before the official release of the game.<ref>''[[L'Histoire de Rayman]]'', Chapter 4 - Rayman 3 : Hoodlum Havoc, Rayman without Michel Ancel</ref>
* When ''[[Rayman Raving Rabbids]]'' was intended to be the fourth installment in [[Rayman (series)|the series]], [[Michel Ancel]] confirmed during an interview that "[[Rayman]] will have to save the world, [[Rayman's girlfriend|his girlfriend]] and the girlfriend of his old enemy and his old enemy too!" It was confirmed that the 'old enemy' with whom [[Rayman]] would have to join forces was André, presumably meaning that [[Rayman]] must also rescue André's girlfriend. If the game would have not been cancelled, André would have been the first villain in [[Rayman (series)|the series]] to have join forces with [[Rayman]].
* During a cutscene in ''[[Rayman 3]]'', André makes a reference to ''
The Legend Of Zelda'' in witch he says to a fairy: Bug off [[fairy]], Zelda needs you . * André is the first villain in the main series who has been a main antagonist in more than one game (''[[Rayman 3]]'' and ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]'').
