"I think the forest looks very beautiful this way too. And when it burned, you could see all the fires perform their Great Takara all the way to the sea, and it was very beautiful."

Charred Jungle
Status Destroyed
Position Ta-Wahi

The Charred Jungle,[1][2][3] also called the Charred Forest,[4][5] was a forest of burnt trees in Ta-Wahi, destroyed during a battle between the Matoran and Makuta Teridax's Rahi.


Sometime during the Great War, a battle between the Ta-Koro Guard and the infected Rahi took place in the forest. During the conflict, fires spread and burned all the green trees.[1]

After emerging from his Toa Canister, Tahu walked into the forest, and was caught in a Rahi trap set by the Ta-Koro Guard. The amnesiac Takua then trailed Tahu and discovered Ta-Koro.[1]

The Charred Jungle was the place where Kapura would exercise his skill of traveling long distances quickly by moving very slowly, a technique taught to him by Vakama.[1] Additionally, the Lavaboards used by the Ta-Matoran to lava surf and play the sport of Ignalu were made from tree trunks from the Charred Jungle, since they did not burn in molten magma.[5]

The Charred Jungle was later destroyed when the Toa Nuva unleashed the Bohrok swarms.[6]
