The Online Challenges are a variety of game modes that feature in Rayman Legends. As implied, these challenges require a connection to the internet in order to be accessed. On all versions except the Playstation Vita version, the challenges go through the Uplay servers. On the Playstation Vita they however go through Playstation Network.
There are always four challenges that can be accessed at any time, the Daily Challenge and Daily Extreme Challenge, and the Weekly Challenge and Weekly Extreme Challenge. The Daily Challenges are changed daily, while the Weekly Challenges remain open for seven days before being changed.
Each challenge has a scoreboard, with scores being divided by cups. The cups from lowest to highest are Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond. The diamond cups are the rarest and are only given to the top 1% of the players of the specific challenge. The cup the player has when a challenge concludes determines the amount of points that goes toward the player's Level of Awesomeness. They also contribute Lums to the player's overall Lum count.
Challenges are randomly chosen each day from three different types; Distance, Lums and time. The different locales in which challenges take place in are geared towards different types of challenge, areas such as Murphy's Dungeon and the Land of the Livid Dead tend to focus on distance challenges, however, they too can have Lum related challenges, though these challenges are more likely to appear in areas like The Dojo. The full list of potential challenges are:
- Getting as far as possible, without getting hit. This challenge appears in all locations except for The Dojo.
- Reaching a certain distance, as fast as possible. This challenge appears in all locations except for The Dojo.
- Collecting as many Lums as possible, without getting hit. This challenge only appears in The Dojo.
- Collecting as many Lums as possible, within a time limit. This challenge only appears in The Dojo.
- Collecting a set amount of Lums, as fast as possible. This challenge appears in all locations except for The Infinite Tower.
While there are only 5 types of challenge, the means in which they play out will depend on the location the challenge has been set in, as each setting focuses on different movements and skills to achieve the set goal.
During early 2016, the Rayman community manager Ubi-Mya organized special challenges every Friday. These challenges combined aspect from several challenges into new ones, such as raising the distance for the Neverending Pit time challenges or having the player collect as many Lums as possible in other locations than the Dojo.
There are five areas that Challenges can take place in:
