Rayman's Hands

In the Japanese version, Rayman and Mister Dark's hands were redrawn to have five fingers instead of just four. This was changed presumably by the same reason from the Japanese version of Abe's Oddysee, since the original design of Rayman being offensive to Burakumin, a low-class Japanese working group known for common work-related incidents at the time which resulted in workers' fingers being chopped off.
