The crimson forest is dense and has a scarlet-red color scheme. The forest's fog is dark red and glazing particles are seen floating. Patches of netherrack are seen around the forests, although crimson nylium covers most of the ground (they cannot be smelted into nether bricks, just like their warped vairants). Some low cliffs generate, with nether gold ore and quartz usually on the sides of them. They do spawn in bastion remnants, however, which is exclusively common in this biome. Veins of blackstone rarely spawn overground and commonly spawn underground, and veins of magma blocks generate anywhere.
The terrain is mostly composed of crimson nylium, with some netherrack and nether wart blocks generating on the surface as well. The vegetation of the biome includes fungi, crimson roots and huge crimson fungi and weeping vines. These vines hang from the large fungi and nether wart blocks from the ceiling. Herds of hoglins commonly spawn throughout the forest, providing a healthy food source in the Nether. Warped fungus usually repels them. Piglins are also found here along with their occasional undead counterparts. Fortresses and bastions are structures that can generate in the forests.
