If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: Too many videos instead of pictures.
Rayman Raving Rabbids is a party game from the Rayman saga. It's also notable for being completely different from the traditional Rayman platformer series, although the original idea was to be a platformer with Rabbids.
Lots of unused text from prototype, unused skins, animations, minigames, and models.
Unused Animations and Functions
There are a lot of these, this game is a huge mess to deal with, because most of the time one byte changed will crash the game.
There's a leftover animation of Rayman riding a snake. It was supposed to be a reference to Rayman 2 used in the early concepts of the game where it was a 3D platformer/beat 'em up.
A lot of the unused prototype animations and properties are found in-game or disabled functions such as Rayman riding a pig, Rabbids having a melee and burrow attack, Rayman jumping, hovering, and wall jumping etc. It even has a game over script but it's pretty unfinished. The video also shows an unused level select menu and debugging features.
The final challenge in the game requires having 1000 points on every minigame in the game (which is extremely difficult as some of them are randomized). However, there's one minigame (on Wii at least, unconfirmed on other platforms) which has too many requirements to get 1000 points, making it impossible to unlock the Final Challenge. It can only be accessed with cheating. It's named "World Eclecticism Championship".
This minigame is somewhat simple, it's either a quick duel minigame or a "shoot all the targets" minigame. This minigame might have inspired a similar minigame in its sequel, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2's O.K Corral minigame. What is also note worthy is that the Raymans are holding Wii remotes in every version and the Wii remote model alone is unused.

Please find an archived version of the video(s) or a suitable replacement.
Interestingly, on the Xbox 360 version, the whole prototype OST can be found within game files! It contains remixes from Rayman 2. The OST can be found on RayTunes or YouTube.
In the game's files, there is a song that goes unused in the game, and it's "Cotton Eye Joe" by Rednex. It was possibly meant for the dance mini-games, but was removed for unknown reasons (possibly licensing issues).
Early Title Screen
An early title screen is present in the game's files. The copyright date of 2005 means it's very likely from a Rayman 4 Rabbids platformer prototype.
The game has an unused Rayman skin named "Burnt Rayman". It was supposed to be one of the unlockable costumes, but was scrapped for unknown reasons. Its unlock text is still present in the game's files. There also is a debug skin without Rayman that was used to make the model creation process easier.
