Visiting this area with 700, 800, and 900 Yellow Lums will reveal three cheats that can be used in various areas throughout the game.

Restore health (Fahrenheit)

This cheat is revealed when 700 Yellow Lums are collected. The hint reads "To gain life points, try to shoot on a bridge". Unfortunately, this text was confused with the next cheat, Gauntlet. To restore all of Rayman's health, stand on a bridge and repeatedly jump on it. The word "Fahrenheit" should appear on the screen and Rayman's health should be restored.

Here are some locations were the code can be triggered:

  • In the final section of the Fairy Glade, on the brige above the polluted water.
  • In the first section of the Marshes of Awakening, at the end of the first bridge.
  • In the first section of the Bayou, at the end of the bridge just after the player climbs the ladder.
  • In the second section of Whale Bay, at the end of the bridge which is located high up, after the stairs with Red Lums.
  • in the first section of the Sanctuary of Rock and Lava, at the end of the 1st bridge of the level just before the big net.

Gain three Power Fists (Gauntlet)

This cheat is revealed when 800 Yellow Lums are collected. The hint reads "To gain 3 Mega-Shoots, try to jump under a well". Unfortunately, this text was confused with the previous cheat, Fahrenheit. To gain three Power Fists, stand at the bottom of a vertical passageway and repeatedly shoot. The word "Gauntlet" should appear on the screen and Rayman should gain three Power Fists.

Here are some locations were the code can be triggered:

Restore health (Pickwitt)

This cheat is revealed when 900 Yellow Lums are collected. The hint reads "To recover full life, try to push a tree". To restore all of Rayman's health, keep walking into a tree. The word "Pickwitt" should appear on the screen and Rayman's health should be restored.

Here are some locations were the code can be triggered:

Enter bonus level without all Yellow Lums and cages

On the "Access Denied" screen that appears when a level is beaten without every Yellow Lum being collected and every cage being broken, press the buttons A, B, X, Y, X, Y in order. The word cheat should appear and the bonus stage will load upon pressing the A button.

Get infinite shots during Razorbeard fight

During the last part of the fight with Razorbeard, when Rayman is piloting a flying shell, fly to the highest point in the area and hold the A and B buttons as Rayman touches the roof. Rayman will be transported to a hidden area in which the player must dodge barriers in his way. Upon reaching the end of this area, Rayman will be transported back to the main area with infinite shots, signified by the shots changing color to blue.

Ganesh Dieu des Mimis

In the first section of The Sanctuary of Water and Ice, stand in front of the big door and, before opening it, shoot on it multiple time until the message "Ganesh Dieu des Mimis" appears. This will restore the player's life and gives the player Power Fists. The message "Ganesh Dieu des Mimis" can be translated by "Ganesha God of Mimis".

Atari Forever

In the final part of The Precipice, stand in front of the Pirate door before opening it and shoot on it multiple time until the message "Atari Forever" appears with a link to the website Atari-History. This will give the player Full Life and Power Fists.

Cigale and Ritchy

In the first section of Tomb of the Ancients, if the player doesn't open the first door of the level and go to the 1,000th lums secret chamber the message "Cigale and Ritchy's Secret Place" will appear. This message doesn't do anything and can only be reached by using cheats.

Duke Nukem References

On the second section of the The Iron Mountains when Rayman is on the balloon, repeatedly press and release Left Trigger. Messages referring to Duke Nukem will randomly appear. Those messages don't do anything.
