- “You can now find the special hidden dragon treasure.”
- —Master Eon
The Hidden Treasure is a toy figure magic item that comes with the Pirate Seas Adventure Pack. When placed on the Portal of Power, a radar appears on screen that tells the player if a hidden treasure is the area. The closer the Skylander gets to the treasure, the more circles will show, and a distinct sound will play. When the Skylander is very close, the chest will pop up from below the ground and the Skylander can then open it like any other Treasure Chests.
In the Wii version of Skylanders: Swap Force, it instead doubles any money you collect while it is active.
In Skylanders: SuperChargers, placing the Hidden Treasure on the Portal for the first time will unlock a Legendary Treasure of the same name that can be placed in the hub world. When placed, it my be attacked and broken open daily to generate Coins and Minor Treasures that are worth hundreds of gold.
To use the hidden treasure in the 3DS version, it first needs to be added to the game by Wendel in the same way a Skylander would be added. It will then be stored under the R button, which the player can press to activate it. While active, the chest will draw nearby radiance vials towards the Skylander. Each activation costs 10 radiance.
- In the Wii version, the Hidden Treasure resets during cutscenes or when speaking with certain NPC's. This even works in the Ruins, making it an easy-to-use and infinite source of coins.
