Magic Items are special objects that help the Skylanders during gameplay in the Skylanders series. When placed on the portal of power, they help your Skylander.

Use on Console

On the console, the items can be activated by placing them on the portal while playing. They will activate instantly and while they have a limited duration, they can be removed from the portal to save the remainder of the time for later in the chapter. When changing or resetting levels, the duration of the items is refreshed.

The adventure pack figures do not have a duration, but can be used once per level to deal 999 damage to all enemies on the screen.

Use on 3DS

In the 3DS version, the items are "registered" with Wendel. They can then be activated an unlimited number of times by pressing the R button. However, each use costs a set amount of radiance crystals.

The adventure pack figures are only used to unlock the corresponding realm in the 3DS version.

Use in Webgame

The items only serve to fill the player's Collection, however registering enough items will result in gaining a Medal as well as a minor gold bonus.
