The Lost Kingdom (失われた国 , lit. Lost Country?), also known as the Remote Island Chain in the Tropics is a tropical location featured in Super Mario Odyssey. The area has a lush tropical climate, scattered with large trees and islands surrounded by toxic purple water. Its most notable city are the Forgotten Isle, which serves as the kingdom's main playable area in the game. The Toad Brigadeare in this kingdom when Mario arrives, using their Starshroom as the kingdom's Crazy Cap shop.
The Lost Kingdom is notable for being primarily inhabited by a race that is unknown. The primary currency of the kingdom are purple Leaves, striped leaves which closely resemble a Super Leaf, but without the eyes or the missing piece on the upper left.
A Dense, Primeval Forest
Few visit these remote islands surrounded by poison, but they are dense with plants that have followed a unique evolutionary path. There is a strange unity between the vibrantly colored plants, the odd animals, and the sea of poison surrounding them.
Nature's Traffic Lights
The Tropical Wigglers found here are not aggressive and are mostly genial and pleasant creatures. You should, however, avoid touching them, for safety's sake. They stretch and contract their bodies constantly and have a habit of stretching across major pathways, so you may need to wait for the right moment to pass. This behavior has given them the nickname "traffic lights of the island." Be sure to look both ways before your cross.
Thief of the Skies
The undisputed ruler of the skies here is the Klepto. This large bird has keen eyesight that enables it to spot prey from far above before swooping down to snatch it up in an instant. Once ensnared in its sharp claws, escape is quite difficult, and many smaller visitors have been carried off in this way.
Ruins Steeped in Mystery
The purpose of the distinctive ruins scattered throughout the island remains unclear. The starburst pattern that appears on them MAY indicate a spot of capable of withstanding a great impact. The builders clearly mastered stonework, as these structures still operate and move perhaps centuries after their creators had disappeared.
Watch Those Hands
The Trapeetle is a local hazard. Its large hands capture prey, who are held tight as the creature explodes in a tragic display seen absolutely nowhere else in nature. Best to avoid.
A Symbol from Ancient Times
Now seen all over the world, this starburst symbol is thought to have originated on these islands. But what does it communicate? The mystery may never be solved.
