Arcane Forest is the seventh and final world before the final battle with Mr Dark in the Game Boy Color version of Rayman. Its appearance is partly influenced by the Dream Forest in the original game, but more heavily influenced by the environments of Rayman 2. It is a dark forest full of spikes, slippery logs, and red spiky balls that pop out of the ground to hurt Rayman. There are four parts. The first two are normal and straightforward. The later two contain challenges that Mr Dark sets before him. At the very end, Rayman faces the main antagonist of the game.
There are two cages to be found in this level.
This level has Bad Rayman chasing and copying Rayman's every move, like in the original game. If Rayman touches him it leads to an instant death. However, unlike the original game, it is possibly to kill him. It involves flying over a bed of spikes in a certain way. There are no cages or lives in this level.
Akin to the original game, this level has the directional controls being reversed. Left is right, and vice-versa. The red spiky ball enemy appears only in this stage (as well as in the Dark Legacy levels). There is one cage, two lives and a bonus level to be found in this level.
