Minikits (called Artifacts in LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures) have, for the entirety of the series, been the main collectibles of the series. In each main level of the game, there are 10 Minikit Canisters (or Artifact Treasure Chests) to collect. Some can be collected in Story Mode. Some require additional gameplay in Free Play Mode. Upon completing a Minikit, a large stud bonus is awarded. These Minikits help achieve 106% in all games so far except LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game. In every game, the Minikits/Artifacts can be viewed in the hub world on display. Finally, in LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, the Minikits can be playable in the Minikit Bonus levels once completed; Therefore, the Minikits in those games (and, in advance, the Minikits in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game) can be playable as vehicles and thus have their own articles. In LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game there is the "Rebel Blockade Runner", a Super-Kit that is unlocked after getting all 17 True Jedi Statuses which in turn unlocks the A New Hope level. And in LEGO Batman: The Videogame, there is a Super-Kit for the hero levels that unlocks Wayne Manor and and a Super-Kit for the villain levels that unlocks Arkham Asylum (bonus).
Many of the minikits in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga (and even a few from LEGO Batman: The Videogame) are also Minikit copies of respective vehicles (or, in one case, a character, and in two Super-Kit cases, two levels).
The extra Minikit Detector causes arrows to appear near where the ten Minikit Canisters will be, helping you find them.
