Relax, that's just a figment of my imagination.

Coach Oleander during Basic Braining

Figments are physical manifestations of a mind's imagination which appear all throughout mental worlds. They serve as collectibles in the Psychonauts series. They are two-dimensional illustrations that appear in a person's psyche and differ in color and appearance. They represent aspects of the host mind's personality, including personal goals, fears, and memories.

Gameplay

Psychonauts

Each figment has a number value assigned to it which contributes to Raz's figment-point counter. For every 100 figment points Raz obtains, he receives a PSI Cadet Rank. As the game progresses, the worth of figments slowly rises.

Razputin keeps a thorough record of each and every single individual figment he collects in his journal which can be accessed from the collection tab in his journal.
