|This article is about Magic Item figures. You may be looking for in-game (digital) items.|
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.
In Skylanders: SuperChargers, all of the previous Magic Items, including the Adventure Pack and Battle Pack figures, become Legendary Treasures that can be placed anywhere at the Skylanders Academy either for display purposes or to obtain more gold by hitting them or pressing the button to interact.
In Skylanders: SuperChargers Racing and the Racing Mode of SuperChargers, some of the Magic Items are used as in-game objects for speed boosts, invulnerability, healing, etc. Additionally, SuperChargers Racing has Magic Item Vaults spread throughout its tours, where Magic Items can be placed in order to earn bonus stars.
None of the items from Spyro's Adventure to Trap Team appear in Skylanders: Imaginators. Instead, when placed on the portal, they give over 500 coins to the Skylander on the portal. This is also the case for Traps.
Use on 3DS
In the 3DS versions, the items are 'registered' with Wendel, Hugo, or Flynn. 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 or coins.
The adventure pack figures are only used to unlock the corresponding level in the 3DS versions.
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.

- The categorization of Magic Items as well as other related figures has often been inconsistent.
- In Spyro's Adventure, Giants and Trap Team, they are split into several categories based on their functions; in Swap Force, they're all listed under a category named "Other Toys," marked with a rook icon.
