Rayman tops up the oxygen he needs underwater with the Blue Lum.

A Blue Lum is a type of Lum that is found underwater in Rayman 2: The Great Escape and all its remakes except for Rayman Revolution, in which they are replaced with air bubbles. They contain oxygen, which Rayman needs when he swims in bodies of water he cannot resurface to, otherwise his oxygen meter will run out and he will drown. Some stay to provide all the oxygen he needs, other will disappear, but those ones may reappear.

History

Blue Lums in Rayman 2 are said to represent the origin of all life, and the very first breath of a creature's life. When a creature is born, it is given a Blue Lum to keep until the day it dies. As he is the only being Polokus didn't dream about, Rayman may or may not carry his own Blue Lums to breathe.

Usage in other games

In Rayman 3 for the Gameboy Advance, and Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge, the Blue Lums are used by Rayman to power his Helicopter and Throttle Copter and fly around until they wear off.
