Sunshine Forest is a forest in Mother 3 located between Tazmily Village and Mt. Oriander. It is one of the two major forests on the Nowhere Islands, being the western-most forest. It is home to many animals, as well as Isaac, and Lighter with his son Fuel.

Sunshine Forest was once a peaceful area, but after it caught on fire in Chapter 1, the animals residing inside the forest became very agitated and would often attack people. Sunshine Forest later became home to a number of Chimeras.


Sunshine Forest can be accessed from the south by taking the west path from Tazmily Village's Cross Road. The road passes the Forest Prayer Sanctuary at the entrance to the forest, before curving north. The path winds north and east then under a large tree trunk, then reaches a fork at Isaac's house, where west leads to a hot spring and north further in to the forest. The forest splits into two halves, the east half will lead to Lighter and Fuel's house to the north end.

The west half of the forest winds north until it reaches the cliffs of Mt. Oriander. The forest path then passes a river and exits north towards Alec's house and Argilla Pass.


The Sunshine Forest is first featured when the Pigmask Army sets Fireflies loose that set fire to the forest in Chapter 1. Lighter is found deep inside the forest, begging Flint to rescue Fuel, still inside his home. Thomas remains with Lighter to tend to his wounds. Deeper in, Lighter's home is caught on fire as well. Destroying a barricade, Flint rescues Fuel and, though they are both covered in soot, they escape unharmed. After Flint escorts Fuel back to the village, a rain puts out the fire.

Later, during their search for Flint's family, lightning strikes, knocking down a tree. Flint is forced to take a less safe route up Mt. Oriander, with aid of Duster's Wall Staples. On the way back, Flint is told the children were found near the river; however, their mother was found dead with a Drago's fang in her heart.

Flint later passes through once more durinv the search for Claus, who left for the mountains alone to avenger his mother. Flint, along with Alec, cross the river using frogs to reach Aeolia's house at the foot of the mountain.

Later in Chapter 3 after Fassad's speech to the Tazmily Villagers, Salsa is forced to deliver a Happy Box to four people, with Isaac being located in the forest. Later, after being rescued, Salsa's party is forced to escape through the forest, reaching a dead end. They are attacked by the Pork Tank there, with its defeat signifying the end of the chapter.

Towards the end of Chapter 7, Lucas's party is forced to pass through the forest on the way to Ionia's home.
