Unlock Teddy Bear:
One of the miscellaneous secondary weapons is the teddy bear, which can be located after earning the Scorpion Sword in the clock (west) tower. There are three encounters with a giant golem enemy in the clocktower when you first go through it; the first is before you start negotiating the vertical climbing of the tower (past); the second is on top of the clock tower (past); the third is is stationary and throws exploding monsters in the clock tower's second area (past). Find the room where the second giant golem enemy is. You will need to be in the present (so find a time portal) and drop into the water-filled dead end past the golem's room. Break the wall and retrieve the teddy bear. The teddy bear is almost unbreakable and inflicts hardly any damage, but has the ability to restore lost life to the Prince with each successful blow on an enemy.
Play as Sandwraith:
On your second visit to the portal room, when you must switch the time to the present for the first time, the Prince will say that something is wrong. You must run the switches on the wall to make the portal work correctly. However, instead of doing so, enter the portal as it is and you will switch the time to the present. Save the game, then exit and load the game. You will now be playing as Sandwraith. In this mode you will constantly lose life and will lose much more health when hit than in normal mode. However, your attacks are stronger and you'll be faster. Note: Save the game on a different file if you wish to continue the game as the Prince.
Find the following hidden weapons. Note: All special weapons are unbreakable. However, if you throw it, you lose it for good:
Rayman's Fist is located in the Catacombs. Since the Dahaka is chasing you, consider using slow time to escape him. Get to the part where you have to pull three stones out of the wall to raise the central area. After pulling the first, go to the stairway, make a right, run on two walls, and jump to the bar on the right side. Swing from the bar and follow the path, then make a quick left. The fist is in a weapon rack to the left. The Rayman fist has a high attack rate, but hardly does damage. If you throw it, you lose it forever.
After acquiring the Scorpion sword, find your way back to the central room. Turn the turnstile so that the lever is facing the doorway with the save point fountain. Stand facing the opposite doorway and walk up a little and to the right. You will find a ledge that is one step lower than the area around you. Walk down and grab on to it, then jump to the opposite ledge and jump back and forth to slowly make your way down. Once you reach the bottom drop down to the ledge below it. Wall run to the next wall and get ready to jump off and back and forth to make your way up. Wall run again and, when you reach the end wall jump to slow your descent once more, you'll eventually grab onto a ledge. Make your way to the doorway that is next to it, but do not go in. Instead, keep going on the rocks until you see the area where sand is falling. With the scorpion sword in hand, break the wall. Break the rack of weapons and pick up the hockey stick. It has moderate damage and a relatively slow attack rate.
The light sword is the strongest secondary weapon in the game. In the mystic caves you will come upon a door that you must unlock via switch. Directly after that door is a drop in the floor. Drop down and break the left wall, thenbreak the rack to pick up the light sword. The light sword has maximum damage and maximum attack rate.
