Bonus level (Rayman 1)
- This article is about the bonus levels in the original game. For bonus levels from other games, see Bonus level.
Bonus levels are minigames in the original Rayman game. They can be accessed by approaching the Magician's hat, which can be found in a total of 11 locations throughout the game. If Rayman has 10 or more Tings in his inventory, he will automatically hand them over to the Magician. They appear as a handful of sparkling pink dust. Once Rayman is inside a bonus level, he is given a time limit and a number of Tings to collect, both of which are specific to that particular bonus level. If Rayman collects all the level's Tings within the time limit, he is given an extra life. The player can also return to a completed bonus level and attempt to beat their finishing-time record, but doing so will not grant any more lives.

The first Pink Plant Woods bonus level.
- When Rayman begins to give the Magician the ten Tings, the animation shows that Rayman actually gives a bunch of Electoons instead. This could be an early animation that didn't get adjusted for the final version.
