The Forest is the fifth world of Donkey Kong Island in the games Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D with ten levels. The boss of this world is Mangoruby, and the Tiki Tak Tribe leader of this world is Wacky Pipes.
As presumed by the name, this world is a forest with large trees and dense vegetation. There are many artificially made structures, like wooden walkways and suspended platforms high above the ground, sometimes, going through trees. Treehouses, totem poles, wooden carvings and hanging cut logs are also present.
In Vine Valley, the Kongs must swing on vines over large pits to progress. In Clingy Swingy, there are many tilting platforms by weight and pendulum-like swinging logs for the primates to cling on. In Flutter Flyaway, many Tiki Buzzes and Tiki Torks work as floating and moving platforms. In Tippin' Totems, the primates must go through giant moving totem poles to complete the level. In Longshot Launch, the Kongs must traverse through many wooden statues' mouths by using barrel cannons. In Springy Spores, there are many giant red mushrooms for the heroes to bounce. In Wigglevine Wonders, most of the level traversal is made by grabbing and riding on Wigglevines, flying plants. And in Muncher Marathon, a spider nest gets disturbed by the Kongs, and they must escape from a hungry swarm of baby spiders, the Munchers.
The boss level, Mangoruby Run, is home for the Mangoruby, a giant plant-like caterpillar, capable of flying, swimming and producing electricity. Wacky Pipes possesses the creature and attacks Donkey and Diddy Kong.
