The Lost City of Arkus is an ancient, floating city of the Arkeyans when they ruled over Skylands 10,000 years prior to Skylanders: Giants. The Skylanders come here to make their way to the center of Arkus to stop Kaos from ruling Skylands with an Arkeyan army.

  • Arkeyans had a idiosyncrasy where they have trouble remembering anything that is below them. Above and to the side, no problem, but below... forget about it. Being deep underground, the City of Arkus posed a particular problem. The Arkeyans tried to rectify this by moving their city high up, but the plans were placed in the basement of the City Hall of Arkus, so they got lost.[1]
