the original ''[[Rayman 1|Rayman]] '', the cages are about as big as [[ Rayman]] is, and they contain [[Electoon]]s which have been captured by the monsters that appeared after the [[Great Protoon]] was stolen by [[Mister Dark]]. Each level in the game has six cages which fill up a medallion as [[Rayman]] keeps destroying them. When he has freed all six per level, the medallion shows as a happy [[Electoon]] face on the world map. There is a total of 102 cages in the whole game, and all of them must be destroyed before advancing to the [[Candy Château]]. The game also requires backtracking to find all of the cages, as [[Rayman]] is sometimes not able to reach them until he gains his powers. Some cages are also hidden, and only appear if [[Rayman]] touches a certain area in a map.

There are 38 cages in the entire game which all contain
Electoons. It is impossible to break all cages during the first visit of a level, as some are only accessible with a specific ability that Rayman would not possess during his initial visit.
