'''Cages''' are small breakable prisons which contain captive creatures or [[LumsLum]]s, who have been jailed within by enemy groups, such as the [[Robo-Pirate]]s or [[Hoodlum]]s. Cages are a key gameplay element, featuring in all five major titles in the series, and many spin-offs, such as the [[Rayman 3 (Game Boy Advance)|the Game Boy Advance version of ''Rayman 3'']] and ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]''. They are among the most commonly recurring objects that players encounter within the series.
==Cages in ''[[Rayman 1|Rayman]]''==
{{quote|text=[[Rayman]] has to free the imprisoned [[Electoon]]s to re-establish order in [[the Glade of Dreams|his world]]. Each level is represented by a medallion with six empty spaces on the map of the world, each of which corresponds to a cage of Electoons [[Electoon]]s which you have to find. Each time you open a cage of Electoons[[Electoon]]s, one space on the medallion fills up.|sign=Manual|source=''[[Rayman 1|Rayman]]''}}

[[File:CageR1.gif|thumb|right|A cage.]]
In the original ''[[Rayman 1|the original ''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 [[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.
In 2016 , it was discovered that the [[Rayman DSi|Nintendo DSi]] version of [[Bongo Hills]] had accidentally kept a cage which was previously exclusive to the [[Rayman Advance|the Gameboy Advance version]] , rendering the total amount of cages to go up to seven, instead of the usual six. Breaking the seventh cage doesn't effect the game in any way and simply doesn't have cause the medallion to appear.
===Cages in the [[Rayman 1 (GBC)|Game Boy Color adaptation of the original ''Rayman'' game]]===
[[Image:FD 5.PNG|thumb|316px|class=sprite|A cage in [[Rayman (Game Boy Color)|the Game Boy Color version of the original ''Rayman'' game]].]]
There are 38 cages in the entire game which all contain [[Electoon]]s. 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]] has not acquired during his initial visit. The music will change when [[Rayman ]] gets close to a cage to indicate it being there.
{{quote|text=Inside these metal cages, the inhabitants captured by [[Robo-Pirate|the pirates]] are most often found. It also happens that the [[Yellow Lum]]s are prisoners. To liberate all captive creatures, you must [[magic fist|shoot]] a cage twice. For every ten cages destroyed, the [[resistance|living standards]] of [[Rayman]] increase.|sign=Official description|source=''[[Rayman 2 : The Great Escape : Le Guide Officiel]]''}}
[[File:RR-PS2-PirateCage-TheWoodsOfLight.jpg|320px|thumb|right|A pirate cage, as seen in ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''.]]
In ''[[Rayman 2]]'' , cages serve two purposes: some of them contain creatures that [[Rayman]] must free to advance, such as [[Ssssam]] the snake, [[Teensie]]s who open [[Spiral Door]]s for him, or [[Purple Lum]]s that allow him to get to places out of reach. Others do not involve mandatory gameplay elements, but count towards Rayman's total, and extend his life bar.
Unlike the original ''[[Rayman 1|the original ''Rayman'']]'', it is possible to advance to the final boss and complete the game without freeing all cages, however the maximum life bar can only be achieved by getting them all. The cages in this game are a lot smaller, and are mostly hung from ceilings and posts. [[Rayman]] can usually know that one is near by hearing the sound of a prisoner crying for help. Also unlike the first game, the are no cages that only appear by touching certain areas in a map, though some are hidden or can only be reached after [[Rayman]] receives certain powers, so the player would still have to backtrack.
===Original (PC, N64) and Dreamcast versions===
There are 80 cages in this game, and all of them count towards the total. Every 10 cages freed extend [[Rayman]]'s life bar and also fill it to maximum. Cages that do not contain creatures required to advance typically contain [[Yellow Lum]]s, [[Super Yellow Lum]]s, or, on rare occasions, [[Red Lum]]s. It is, therefore, almost impossible to obtain all the lums [[Lum]]s in the game without also finding all the cages.
===Playstation PlayStation version===
In this the PlayStation version, cages contain [[Deny]]s, [[Ludiv]]s or [[Greenbottle]]s. Each one freed increases [[Rayman]]'s health a little bit before leaving. In the [[the Hall of Doors]], next to each level the individual number of different creatures that should be freed is displayed, but while playing the level, only the total number of cages is shown, without the breakdown. For continuity purposes, creatures required to finish the levels (such as the Teensies[[Teensie]]s) are still locked in cages, but these cages do not count towards the total.
===Playstation PlayStation 2 version (''[[Rayman Revolution]]'')===
In this version''[[Rayman Revolution]]'', the cages contain [[Familiar Spirit]]s - a total of 80 in the game. Instead of automatically extending [[Rayman]]'s life bar, every 10 [[Familiar Spirit|spirits ]] released unlock another one of [[Ly's Challenges]]. Only completing the challenge will extend [[Rayman]]'s life. Like the Playstation PlayStation version, ''[[Rayman Revolution|Revolution]]'' also includes special creatures in cages that do not count towards the total.
===Cages in ''[[Rayman 2 Forever]]''===
There are 30 cages in total scattered throughout the game, ; they all contain a [[Grand Minimus]].
==Cages in ''[[Rayman M]]''==
Cages do not feature in a functional role in this game, however. However, cages resembling those from ''[[Rayman 2]]'' can be seen adorning the [[Treasure Ship]].
==Cages in ''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc|Rayman 3]]''==

{{quote|text=The [[Hoodlum]]s have captured all the [[Teensie]]s and put them in cages to use them for shooting practice. It’s up to you to set them free. Listen carefully! You can hear them calling for help when you go near a cage. Each time they’re set free, the Teensies [[Teensie]]s give you a present and a jewel [[medallion]] fills up. When the 6 jewel [[medallion]]s medallions are full, the Life Bar increases.|sign=Manual|source=''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc]]''}}
[[Image:Medalionrayman3_acarr.PNG|thumb|320px|right|A medallion from ''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc|Rayman 3]]''.]]This timeIn ''[[Rayman 3]]'', the only creatures that are trapped inside cages are various tribes of [[Teensie]]s that have been captured by the [[Hoodlum]]s, who have imprisoned them in 60 cages total. As in ''[[Rayman 2]]'', not all of them have to be destroyed in order to advance to the final boss level. Akin to [[Rayman 1|the original ''Rayman''game]], each cage that is destroyed fills up a medallion, though this time when each medallion is filled with 6 cages, the size of [[Rayman]]'s life bar increases, giving him a higher maximum of health. The captive [[Teensie]]s will often reward [[Rayman ]] when be breaks their cages, either with a [[Laser-Washing Powder]] power-up, or with [[jewels]] that the hero can collect to obtain points, and then disappear after a quick remark.
There are two types of cage seen in the course of the game, they differ only in appearance however, they both have the same effect when broken. The first type of cage is the one most commonly seen throughout the course of the game, these cages are cubic in shape, and are constructed with wood and metal. They also have a [[balloon]] adorned with the [[Hoodlum]] emblem, through which the actual cage is suspended in midair. These cage have some resemblance to a bird cage.
The second type of cage is exclusively found in [[The Land of the Livid Dead (Rayman 3)|the Land of the Livid Dead]], these . These have a more simplistic look, made of only wood, with bars preventing the captive [[Griskin]] from escaping, who are the only type of [[TeensyTeensie]] to be seen in this type of cage. Much like the main type of cage, these cages are also suspended from a [[balloon]], but with a more dull colouration and with no [[Hoodlum ]] emblem.
In [[Rayman 3 HD]], breaking all cages will reward the player with the [[Hero of the Teensies]] achievement.

No prisoner is seen emerging from these cages when broken.
In the [[Rayman 3 (GBA)|the Game Boy Advance]] version, there are 50 cages scattered throughout the game, but not every level contains a cage. Usually, in levels that contain cages, there will be four to find. Levels that have less than four cages are [[Wanderwood Forest]] (with three cages), [[Prickly Passage]] (with two cages), [[Boulder Brink]] (with two cages) and [[Wretched Ruins]] (with three cages).
In the [[Rayman 3 (Symbianmobile phone)|the mobile phone]] version, there are merely 12 cages to break in total.
==In Cages in ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]''==[[Image:Cage_RHR.png|thumb|320px|class=sprite|A cage in ''[[Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge]]''.]]The cages in this game are identical to the main type of cage seen in the console versions of ''[[Rayman 3]]''. [[Rayman ]] must break all cages in a level to obtain 100% completion, as they go towards that tally. There are nine levels that cages can be found, with four per level, this gives a total of 36 cages to locate throughout the course of the game.
Much like in ''[[Rayman 2]]'' and the console version of ''[[Rayman 3]]'', [[TeensiesTeensie]] s are found locked in cages, and will call for help when [[Rayman]] is close to them. Much like in the console versions of ''[[Rayman 3]]'', Teensies [[Teensie]]s will make a quick remark once freed, before disappearing, leaving behind a reward for [[Rayman]].

[[Image:Cage_RRR_GBA.PNG|thumb|320px|A cage from [[Rayman Raving Rabbids (Game Boy Advance)|the Game Boy Advance version of ''Rayman Raving Rabbids'']].]]Cages have a similar appearance to those that appeared In the [[Rayman 3 (GBA)|the Game Boy Advance]] and [[Rayman 3 (Symbianmobile phone)|mobile phone]] versions of ''Rayman 3'', and thus, similar to those from ''[[Rayman 2]]''. There are a total of 60 cages that are scattered throughout the game, in levels that contain cages, there are four to be found, making for 15 levels that contain cages.
==Cages in ''[[Rayman Origins]]''==
[[File:RO-Cage.png|320px|thumb|left|A cage from ''[[Rayman Origins]]''.]] [[File:RaymanOriginsMedallion.png|320px|thumb|right|A medallion, as seen in ''[[Rayman Origins]]''.]] There are 108 cages in ''[[Rayman Origins]]'' - 62 of which are hidden away in hidden chambers - each with a group of imprisoned [[Electoon]]s - and the other 46 are located at the end of the levels. These cages are usually surrounded by a forcefield tied to several enemies, and once the enemies are defeated, the forcefield disappears. There are also 5 levels - the last levels from the last 5 worlds - where the medallion contains one slot which has an encarved cage symbol, although these levels don't contain any cage. Instead of breaking a cage at the end of the level, the player can fill these slots with [[Electoon|Electoons]] s by defeating each boss from these five worlds. The rest of [[Electoon|Electoons]] s are received through other means: 31 for winning time trials and 102 for collecting a specific amount of [[Lum (UbiArt games)|Lum]]s in each level and then trading them to [[the Magician]].
The [[cages]] are the most resistant objects in ''[[Rayman Origins]]''. Every cage has two padlocks, and each padlock takes 4 continuous slaps to be broken (The fourth slap is always faster and stronger). Cages are the only exception of [[Rayman|Rayman]]'s]] charging ability, as they can be broken easily with a charged fist or a crush attack.

[[File:On Top of Old Smokey - Back to Origins 6.jpg|thumb|right|[[Lum (UbiArt games)|Lum]]s can be found in cages.]]
There are a total of 700 [[Teensie]]s that have been captured in ''[[Rayman Legends]]'', most of which can be found in the various levels. Each level has either three or ten [[Teensie]]s. They can be found imprisoned in the traditional cages, tied to a posts or in the hands of certain enemies. The levels with ten [[Teensie]]s have two of them, a king and a queen, hidden in secret roomsareas. Unlike ''[[Rayman Origins]]'', these usually don't require the player to defeat enemies, but rather survive a small obstacle course and hit the cage with a soccer. Some [[Teensie]]s cannot be freed in the traditional manner and are instead found by winning them via [[Lucky ticket|Lucky Ticket]]s.
Unlike the cages in ''[[Rayman Origins]]'', these ones cages can be broken with a single hit.
