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.

|Location||The Minisaurus Plain|
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.

- Of the three species rescued from cages in the PlayStation version of Rayman 2, the Denys are the only species to not appear in the original version of the game. A Ludiv appeared in the bonus level of the original version of the game whilst the greenbottles were represented by Murfy. However, while at the time, the Denys were unique to the PlayStation version of the game, their model has since been used for the Minisaurus in Rayman Revolution.
