'''Darkblockers''' are sticky blob-like creatures that appear in ''[[Rayman Origins]]'' and ''[[Rayman Legends]]''. They can be found attached to every door that divides an area in the [[Glade of Dreams]], staring at the players with their only eyeball, which seems to be their weak spot. If players hit them, they will make a grumbling noise, their eyeballs will pop out, and their bodies will disappear, unlocking the door. However, if the players cross the door and go to the next area, the Darkblockers will return. In some cases, these returning Darkblockers have no eyeballs and can't be defeated, making impossible to go back to the previous area. Darkblockers work somehow as checkpoints, marking places in which players can return if they get bubblized, pretty much like the [[Photographer]] from [[Rayman 1|the original Rayman game]], who's photoboard makes an appearance too, but as an end-of-level point. Although not being enemies, Darkblockers' name and dark blue colour may suggest that they are possibly related to the [[Darktoon]]s. A dark red variant of Darkblockers can be seen inside of [[El Stomacho]]'s entrails, in the level [[My Heartburn's for You]]; these Darkblockers share the same features as the regular ones.

In this game, Minisaurus are slow-moving creatures who live in herds. They wear red and green chequered overalls and have two spindly wings on their backs. They have frills on their heads like a cockerel and brown spots on their yellow bodies as well as oversized beaks and arms. They only appear in [[the Minisaurus Plain]] in ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''. According to a [[baby Globox]], he owns them, but the [[Robo-Pirate|pirates]]' interference in the world, such as the destruction of [[the Heart of the World]], has driven them mad, and now they eat the [[Popolopoï]]s. [[Rayman]] can daze them, but they can bite him back. Minisaurus are larger versions of [[Deny]]s, creatures found in [[cage]]s in the PlayStation version of ''[[Rayman 2]]''. Like Denys, the baby Minisaurus emit a high-pitched squeaking and bounce around when they are separated from their parents. The noise can be heard from [[the Pier]]. Baby Minisaurus are quite calm, not attacking [[Rayman]] when he comes into sight, unlike the adults, who relentlessly chase down intruders. There are only two babies and four adults in the whole game.
  
In ''[[Rayman Legends]]'', as well as appearing in the [[Back to Origins]] levels, Darkblockers also appear in [[Altitude Quickness]] from [[Toad Story]] and [[the Deadly Lights]] and [[Mansion of the Deep]] from [[20,000 Lums Under the Sea]], and in said levels, their functions are the same as in ''[[Rayman Origins]]''.

It is possible to lure a Minisaurus off of a cliff. First, [[Rayman]] needs to alert their attention, then run towards the cliff near [[the Pier]] and jump off. The Minisaurus will likely jump off the cliff along with [[Rayman]]. They will continue hugging the cliff wall and wade into the [[piranha]]-infested water. They will not appear back on the cliff when the player gets back up. However, if [[Rayman]] dies or exits the level, the Minisaurus will reappear.

*Of the three species rescued from cages in the [[Rayman 2 (PlayStation)|PlayStation version of ''Rayman 2'']], the Denys are the only species to not appear in the [[Rayman 2|original version of the game]].

However, while at the time, the Denys were unique to the [[Rayman 2 (PlayStation)|PlayStation version of the game]], their model has since been used for the Minisaurus in ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''.

Minisaurus, also known as Denys, are reptilian-bird like creatures encountered in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2 and Rayman Revolution.

In the PlayStation version of Rayman 2

Minisaurus are identified as Denys in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2.

Along with Ludivs and greenbottles, they are found in the cages instead of Yellow Lums. Yellow and brown in colour, and resembling some sort of chicken or dinosaur, they are identical to baby Minisaurus, a species found only in the Minisaurus Plain in Rayman Revolution. It is very likely that Denys and Minisaurus are the same species.

They spend a lot of their time hopping up and down on the spot making soft squeaking calls that sound like real-life geese, giving them a hyperactive personality. This gives them restless minds, indulging them into having long philosophical discussions, with themselves or with the greenbottles.

In this game, Minisaurus are slow-moving creatures who live in herds. They wear red and green chequered overalls and have two spindly wings on their backs. They have frills on their heads like a cockerel and brown spots on their yellow bodies as well as oversized beaks and arms. They only appear in the Minisaurus Plain in Rayman Revolution. According to a baby Globox, he owns them, but the pirates' interference in the world, such as the destruction of the Heart of the World, has driven them mad, and now they eat the Popolopoïs. Rayman can daze them, but they can bite him back. Minisaurus are larger versions of Denys, creatures found in cages in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2. Like Denys, the baby Minisaurus emit a high-pitched squeaking and bounce around when they are separated from their parents. The noise can be heard from the Pier. Baby Minisaurus are quite calm, not attacking Rayman when he comes into sight, unlike the adults, who relentlessly chase down intruders. There are only two babies and four adults in the whole game.

It is possible to lure a Minisaurus off of a cliff. First, Rayman needs to alert their attention, then run towards the cliff near the Pier and jump off. The Minisaurus will likely jump off the cliff along with Rayman. They will continue hugging the cliff wall and wade into the piranha-infested water. They will not appear back on the cliff when the player gets back up. However, if Rayman dies or exits the level, the Minisaurus will reappear.
