Back in the day when planes had fairly weak engines, two pairs of wings were used to increase the plane's lift. These planes weren't meant for crazy acrobatic tricks, though—they were best suited for learning the basics of flying. Ride these, and leave the complicated stuff for another day!
Back when aircraft engines were relatively weak, planes were often built with wings at the top and bottom for extra lift. That's what this is: a biplane.

Wait. Is...is that Little Mac from Punch-Out!!? We'd heard he went to Mimin Island to train to become a world champion again, but it looks like he went a few too many rounds in the ring with those island mangoes. If you don't help him get back in shape, we might need to come up with a new name for him...
Wait a second. This is Little Mac? What happened to the "Little" part?! The star of Punch-Out!! clearly hasn't been keeping up with his training if he's ended up like this! Now that he's moved to Mimin Island, though, all hope is not lost. It's said wishes come true there - hopefully, that includes Mac's wish to get back to his former glory.

Marshal, Cam, and Miss Ribbon Matt, Cam & Miss Ribbon Other
From the right: Cam, Marshal, and Miss Ribbon. Cam is quiet and looks like a thinker, but his mind is actually a blank slate. Marshal looks cute and can be relied upon.

Cam always seems to be deep in thought, but he's really just spacing out. And Miss Ribbon seems innocent and sweet, but is actually pretty stubborn. Are these guys related to the Chorus Kids?

Always? That's right! This guy's got no time to waste on game overs. It's right back to resucing the Teensies, every time.
Globox is Rayman's best friend, but Globox's best friends might be food. He's always hungry, but still he tries his best to catch up by running and jumping through unknown terrain.

Usually, a single hero is enough, right? But having more-like a team of 7-would be better. So wouldn't having 100 be REALLY good? That was Wonder Red's logic when he joined the planetary protection team called the Wonderful 100. He also teaches when he isn't saving the world. Superheroes need day jobs too.
You think a hero should fight on his own? Or in a team of, say, seven at most? Forget that, let's have a hundred of 'em! ...That kind of thinking might be how we ended up with the Wonderful 100, heroic defenders of Earth led by Wonder-Red. Behind the mask, though, he's a humble school teacher with a remarkable memory.
A Wonderful One from the Los Angeles field office. Even off duty, he's a dashing police detective...but he can be a little clumsy at times. He resents Wonder-Red for taking the role of leader despite being new to the team, and the two have a caustic relationship. Still, his trademark Unite Sword attack is a valuable asset.
This Wonderful One from the Bordeaux field office in France isn't really one for escargot-he's all about the junk food. Despite still being in middle school, he's a superb sniper. His tradmark Unite Gun technique needs no bullets...he's firing his fellow heroes instead. That's a scary level of teamwork!

His tradmark Unite Gun technique needs no bullets...since it fires his fellow heroes instead. Now that's real heroic dedication!
A high schooler from Romania whose acrobatic abilites are so impressive, she even represented her country as an olympic gymnast. With her Unite Whip technique and her Queen of Rage moniker, you'd think she'd not be one to mess with, but Wonder-Green seems to enjoy provoking her. Well, to each his own...

This Wonderful One brought his gigantic hammer all the way from Siberia. With his large stature and few words, many find him intimidating, but he's actually a kind and honest family man.

And there's really no one better to have beside you in the field, because he's had plenty of experience in the Russian military.
Ichi: Do unto others! Ni: home is where the heart is!...no, we don't know what he's talking about either, but there's no doubting the potency of the claws he wields-apparently a family treasure-or his Wonderful-Ryu fighting style. He claims to have 100 proverbs in all, but there's no room to list them all here.
Wonder-Black, the 8-Bit enchanter from India, has an IQ of over 300. He's only 11 years old, but he's already made countless contributions to the effort to protect the planet. His signature Time Bomb move is a great example. Instead of causing destruction, it slows time in the blast range. That's amazing-all we made at 11 was a baking soda volcano...
This so-called 8-Bit Enchanter from India has an IQ of over 300. He's contributed numerous inventions to the Earth defence effort, including his weapon of choice: the Time Bomb. A bomb, yes, but it's not for blowing things up - instead, it slows down time within the blast zone. Not bad for an 11-year-old's science project.
If there's one thing any princess needs to complete her ensemble, it's her favorite battle-axe! Barbara is no average damsel in distress, but even a battle-axe doesn't make you invincible. She needs a little help from Rayman after being kidnapped, but she ends up being a lifesaver when she joins him after that!
The second half of the PAL description for the Karate Joe trophy contains a subtle (and grammatically correct) reference to the "Pretty Cool Guy" meme.
In the NA description of the Ice Climbers' trophy, Nana is described as wearing red, even though she is usually seen wearing pink (as mentioned by the PAL version). This may be referring to her appearance on the box art for Ice Climber on NES.
The Rayman and Globox trophies state that Rayman Origins was first released for the Nintendo 3DS on November 2012. In actuality, the first release of Rayman Origins on Nintendo hardware was for the Wii on November 2011.
This may, however, be due to the fact that the Wii version of Rayman Origins, unlike the 3DS version, was never released in Japan. Even then, Rayman Origins for the Wii is still not their Nintendo debut, as Rayman 2: The Great Escape was available for the Nintendo 64.
The Rayman trophy depicted him with slightly closed eyelids in early builds of the game; they are fully opened in the final game.
The Wii U version of the Starfy trophy states that The Legendary Starfy was released on 09/2002 for the Nintendo DS; in actuality, it was released on June 8, 2009. This was fixed in an update.
In the Japanese version, his debut is listed as Legend of Starfy for the Game Boy Advance.
In the PAL version of Style Savvy: Trendsetters, the character Michaela is replaced by a different character called Evie. In the North American version of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, there is a trophy named Michaela, though the character represented in the trophy is actually Evie. The trophy is named correctly in the PAL version.
All of the Wonderful 101 characters have fully rendered face textures under their masks, and are completely blocked from view.
Despite being a Mario series trophy, Viruses appear in this category.
Despite falling under the "Stage" category, the Reaper General and Diamond Golem do not appear on the Find Mii stage at all.
The PAL version of the Lip's Stick trophy lists its game of origin as Tetris Attack. This is an error, as Tetris Attack was a localized version of Panel de Pon that replaced the original fairy characters - including Lip, for whom the weapon is named - with characters from the Yoshi series. Lip herself is not mentioned in the trophy's description, which may be the reason for the confusion.
The Super Scope's game appearance in the Japanese version is simply titled 'Super Scope'.
Takamaru and Saki Amamiya's trophies list their console of debut as the Famicom Disk System and Nintendo 64 respectivly in the Japanese version.
Wonder-Pink's updated trophy in Japan.
Due to concerns raised by CERO, Wonder-Pink’s trophy was updated to be less revealing in the Japanese update 1.0.6.
