Disney Crossy Road is jam-packed with characters.

There's Hiro from Big Hero 6 and Pascal from Tangled, all the emotions from Inside Out and all the toys from Toy Story, and even a grub from The Lion King.

But it also has mystery characters - secret figurines that you have to do something special to unlock. You can't get them from the prize machine or buy them with real cash - you need to meet certain criteria.

In this guide, we'll tell you how to get every single one.
