Artifacts are unlocked at level 40 to help you boost Food Souls' base attributes and provide special skills. Each artifact is unique to each Food Soul, one per Food Soul with no mixing. M souls do not have artifacts.
Once a Food Soul reaches 2 stars, their artifact icon will appear in their tab and window. You can also go to the Food Soul menu and check the "Artifact" filter to display all the Food Souls that currently have Artifacts (or check the table below).
When first starting out, you need to obtain 50 points of Artifact Energy to remove the Seal protecting the Artifact Core.
If you do not have enough energy, you can obtain more by passing a Food Soul's special Trial stage. To do this you need 1 Exclusive Challenge Ticket for this Food Soul or 1 Universal Challenge Ticket. The special Trial stage is very similar to your usual region stage except you will fight a boss-like version of the Food Soul whose Core you are trying to unlock. If you also fulfill the 3-star requirements, you will be able to sweep the stage later for more energy using Challenge Tickets.
Challenge Tickets can be obtained from events and "Artifact Road" stages or purchased in the Shop.
Once you have activated the Artifact, its Core will be opened and you will have access to the nodes. There are two types of nodes: Normal Nodes and Togi Nodes (the big colored ones). Normal nodes mostly boost base attributes while Togi Nodes give Food Souls passive special effects or skills. Each node requires a certain amount of Artifact Energy to be unlocked. Nodes are also generally activated in a fixed order.
Activating Togi Nodes
Togi Nodes are special because you can inlay Togis in them. Togis have two characteristics: type and color. While you cannot choose the color of the Togi you inlay (it must match the color of the node), you can pick the type of Togi you inlay (Antler, Striped or Bushy) depending on the effect you want to activate. The Togi's skill level (from 1 to 10) will also impact the node's effect as it is percentage-based.
Food Souls with Artifacts
Note: TBA means the Food Soul or their artifact has been released in some versions of the game but not in the global one yet.

|Togi node 2||100||326|
|Togi node 3||200||664|

- Node 7 and 8 have two pathways that can be unlocked, only one path is needed to get to togi node 4. In this calculation the second path of node 7 and 8 are unlocked at the end. Normal node values will be different if the second pathway is unlocked before.
