"You incompetent imbecile!" - Admiral Razorbeard, Rayman 2: The Great Escape
Admiral Razorbeard is the main antagonist of Rayman 2: The Great Escape and its remakes. He also appears in Rayman M/Arena, Rayman Rush, Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc for the GBA system, and Rayman: The Animated Series.
Admiral Razorbeard is the ringmaster of the Robo-Pirate Army, which invade the Glade of Dreams and captures most of the world's inhabitants to use as slaves or fuel. He is a short robot with a peg-leg, wearing a huge admiral hat and red and white striped pants, and has a huge crooked piece of metal on his face which is supposedly a beard, hence his name.
Little is known about Razorbeard's history except for the fact that he had already conquered over 100 planets before attempting to invade Rayman's world. Rayman: The Animated Series seems to show some of Razorbeard's real life. He works at a circus as a lackey to the circus's owner, Rigatoni. This seems to suggest that Razorbeard wanted to enslave Rayman's world to gain some more actors for the circus, and succeeded in capturing Rayman in between the events of Rayman 2: The Great Escape and the animated series.
Role in the Games
Rayman 2/Rayman Revolution
Razorbeard is one of the five playable characters that are initially available.
Rayman 3 GBA
Razorbeard made a cameo appearance in the third level of the Hoodlum Headquarters, along with many of his henchmen. In here, he and his robots are standing at a large table, all in different positions, creating their own version of the Last Supper. This is only an easter-egg, and they don't move or speak anything.
Razorbeard makes a fairly brief appearance in the Rayman: The Animated Series episode "Lac-Mac Napping", in which as opposed to his role in Rayman 2, he is a mere lackey to Rigatoni. His physical appearance has also changed, such as having a mouth (which was strangely under his beard), and has a non-robotic voice, but he still retains his irritable personality. He is voiced by Carlos Alazraqui in the TV series.
