The Dead Forest was a vast expanse of trees located on the forest moon of Endor. It was the home of the Raich's cave, and likely received its name due to the dangerous tendencies of the carnivorous Raich. The Raich was attacked twice within the Dead Forest. The first time, the Ewoks managed to place a magic cap on his head, turning him into a harmless tree.
The second time the Dead Forest was home to a battle was during the Raich's temporary return, when the Ewok, Wicket Wystri Warrick, accidentally released the Raich. Wicket and his friends, Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka, Teebo, and Latara were forced to find a way to re-trap the Raich, and they entered the Dead Forest to confront the Raich, eventually succeeding.
