Blue Lums are the source of life in the universe. Blue Lums grant newly born creatures their first breath, and creatures carry their Blue Lums with them for the rest of their life. These are Lums grant Rayman to breath underwater for longer periods of time. But, as seen in the Gameboy Advance titles, they grant a super helicopter power instead.
The Blue Lums are one of the many types of lums which appear through the series. Only difference being that it shares a blue colour.
Rayman can find Blue Lums underwater and touch them for an extra breath of air.
