Challenge Mode is the third available mode to play a normal level as, but it only appeared in LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga; the other two modes are Story Mode and Free Play Mode. Once a Story Mode level has been fully completed, Free Play Mode and Challenge Mode are unlocked. Challenge Mode is much like Free Play Mode; you have a choice of characters and there are no cutscenes. The difference is that there are ten Blue Challenge Canisters scattered through out the level. These are much like Minikit Canisters, but they are in different locations. There is also a time limit, which varies depending on the size of the level. The goal is to collect all ten within the time limit, at which point you will win the mode. Completion of all the Challenges is necessary for 100.0% completion for the game.

Challenge Mode only appeared in LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga; it did not appear in the games before it except for the PSP version of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. and has so far not returned in games after it.
