Red Lums resemble red, glowing orbs. In Rayman 2 they are similar to red versions of Yellow Lums, but look different in Rayman 3, apart from cutscenes where they are in their original form with wings (however, without eyes).
Red Lums are the embodiment of vitality, and the origin of all life in the Glade of Dreams.
Role in the Games
Red Lums recover Rayman's health. In Rayman 2, if Rayman is injured, nearby Red Lums automatically approach him. Robo-Pirates love Red Lums and collect every Red Lum they can find. It seems that the Robo-Pirates actually eat them; when Rayman destroys a Robo-Pirate, Red Lums are often found inside them. Similarly, the defeat of a Hoodlum in Rayman 3 releases a Black Lums. If Rayman uses Grimace on a Black Lum, it will revert back into a Red Lum.
