Mr. Dark is a dark and thieving sorcerer and the main antagonist of the Rayman video game series, serving as the main antagonist of the original Rayman and the unseen overarching antagonist of both Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, as the Magician is following his example.

Rayman Advance is a port of the original Rayman game for the Game Boy Advance which resembles the PC version most closely. It was released in 2001 after nearly a year in development as a launch title for Nintendo’s Game Boy Advance handheld console. Due to hardware limitations, this version has several differences from the other versions, although it is based on the PC release. The first part of Bongo Hills has been removed, most likely due to palette limitations, putting the cage that was meant to appear there at the last part instead. The music has been remade to fit on the cartridge, resulting in much of the original quality being lost.
Some music tracks have even been completely removed, while a few new ones have been added. This was due to the developers putting most of their focus on the graphics of the game, resulting in little space left for the music on the ROM. The graphics have increased in contrast and brightness, resulting in some quality being lost. This was done late in development to compensate for the lack of backlight on the original Game Boy Advance. The intro and ending of the game now consists of a slideshow, similarly to the Atari Jaguar version, instead of the pre-rendered movie seen in most versions.
Other changes in this port were made to intentionally make the game easier. One extra unit of health has been added to the player’s health bar, no Tings are lost upon dying, more lives can be found, more time is available in bonus levels, fewer enemies appear, the Photographer appears in several new locations, and additional platforms have been added in some levels, most notably Space Mama’s Crater. Some bosses have minor differences as well, such as Bzzit and Moskito being able to take hits before they fly away after being damaged, resulting in the player being able to constantly hit them with the right timing until they are defeated. This is also one of the few versions in which Mr Dark’s Dare is replayable upon completion.
