The Forest of Doom is a minor location in The Amazing World of Gumball. It is located in what appears to be a large park in Elmore. When viewed from far above the trees, it possesses an uncanny resemblance to a human skull.

It is also known to be very dark, even when it is sunny outside, possibly since the trees are so tall and thick that they block the sunlight. The forest is bigger than it looks from the outside, and is also easy to get lost in.

It debuts in "The Picnic," where Gumball and Darwin get lost inside of it after not following Miss Simian's directions on a field trip.


The Forest of Doom is home to a variety of creepy plants and animals—there are trees with snarling faces, monstrous squirrels, horrific chicken-deer hybrids, and possibly a lot more that Gumball and Darwin were fortunate enough to avoid. Though their size varies, they almost all seem to be aggressive. Some are shown to be capable of speech.

Episode appearances
