“There is an Ancient Grove within the forest at the end of the Silver River. It is a secret place untouched by civilization. The waters there are poisonous, as well as the creatures who are nutured by it...”

The Ancient Grove is a dark, foreboding woodland area that lies somewhere on the edge of the Silver River. It only appeared in The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night. It was the home of Arborick, as well as other creatures nurtured by the poisonous waters.


The Ancient Grove is, for the most part, untouched by civilization. Much of it is unexplored and uncharted, with many undiscovered creatures and plants. Plant life here is diverse and colorful. Some of the trees grow to heights of over a hundred feet, and the sun raining through their leaves give the grove a very ethereal look. Take care not to get lost, for while this forest may appear serene and idyllic, there is much more to it than meets the eye. Strange creatures are abundant here and even the insects can prove to be deadly. It is advised to steer clear of this area at all costs. Rivers of poison stream through the Grove, as well as ponds, providing home to Grove Worms.

Spyro had been assigned to go to the Ancient Grove to seek out the tree that he saw in his dream with the Chronicler. While searching, he was summoned into a dream by the Chronicler again to regain his Ice abilities and showed Spyro a vision of a terrible king-like Ape, leading a huge army of Apes going to the Mountain of Malefor, shouting, "...The Well of Souls!", another name of the mountain. After Spyro woke up, he eventually found the great tree, but it later turned out to be a monster called Arborick, and Spyro defeated it. After that, a group of Pirates, led by a captain named Skabb, wanted Arborick for "entertainment" in a fighting arena, but that changed when the Pirates decided to replace Arborick with Spyro, knocking him unconscious and taking him and Sparx aboard the flying ship of Fellmuth Arena.
