Psychlops are very similar to Black Lums. They have dark blue skin, and two bat-like wings. Their mouth is large with fangs, and they only have one eye.
Psychlops are encountered very early in the game, being the very first enemy the heroes come across. They are either found sleeping or bouncing in one place when encountered by the heroes. If the heroes get too close to a Psychlops without quickly attacking it, it will deploy its spikes; if this happens, the heroes will need to move away until they retract their spikes, otherwise they can't be defeated and the heroes will get hurt. Unless they have been startled and are protruding their spikes, their eye is always half-closed. They seem to have an alliance with the Darktoons and the Livid Dead, since they are with them in the Land of The Livid Dead in the opening cutscene of Rayman Origins. They appear in the Jibberish Jungle, Gourmand Land, the Sea of Serendipity, Mystical Pique, and the Luscious Lakes.
Psychlops cannot be inhaled and swallowed by a mosquito, as the spikes will hurt the heroes.
In Polar Pursuit, the heroes will encounter eleven psychlops which are flying; if the heroes managed to bounce on each one in succession without hitting the water, the player will unlock the Boing! Boing! Boing! achievement/trophy if they are playing on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3/PlayStation Vita.
