Otherwise known as the Rain Continent, Area 8 is one of the 8 Major landmasses that make up the deadly Gourmet World. It is ruled over by Heracles, one of the 8 Kings of the Gourmet World, and it is also the continent where the Gourmet God Acacia's Salad Dish, AIR, grows.
Area 8 is a vast continent located in the Gourmet World. The size of the continent itself is far larger than any found in the Human World, yet is still considered small in comparison to other continents located in the Gourmet World. It’s commonly known as the “Rain Continent” mainly due to the existence of multiple types of rain such as Poison Rain, Slow Rain, and Laser Rain. Each section of the continent has its own type of environment coupled with its own unique type of rain.
The continent is inhabited by extremely powerful Horse type creatures, and is ruled over by the Horse King Heracles, one of the immensely powerful Eight Kings of the Gourmet World.
At the very centre of Area 8 lies Slow Rain Hills, which contains the legendary ingredient that makes up the Gourmet God Acacia’s Salad Dish, AIR. The ingredient itself grows of a massive Air Tree located deep within Slow Rain Hills.
The reason behind the constant and unique types of rain on the continent is due to Heracles and his children being Aerovores (Creatures that feed off air), causing drops in pressure across the continent. The only time the rain on the continent is stated to stop is if the ingredient AIR located at the centre of the continent ripens and falls to the ground, releasing a massive amount of AIR, enough to blow away all of the clouds that cover the continent.

Nightmare Hill is a deadly region of Area 8 that provides one of the four routes into Slow Rain Hills. Unlike the other three routes into Slow Rain Hills, Nightmare Hill seemingly does not have its own unique rain. To pass through this region, one must make a "sacrifice" to the Horse King Heracles, the ruler of Area 8. Aside from Heracles, the area is inhabited by many more horse type creatures and beasts, making the region just as deadly as the other three routes.
|Slow Rain Hills|
Slow Rain Hills is a large region of Area 8 that is located right at the heart of the Area. It is protected by four deadly routes that one must pass through before gaining access to Slow Rain Hills itself. It experiences "Slow Rain" like its name, large droplets of water that fall through the air almost in slow motion. Its significance is that this is the region on Area 8 which contains and grows the fabled ingredient AIR, the salad dish on the Gourmet God Acacia's Full Course Menu.
