'''The Heart of the World''', also known as '''the Primordial Core''', is a mystical object with a central position in the cosmology of [[the Glade of Dreams]], the world in which the [[Rayman (series)|''Rayman'' series]] takes place. The Heart is mentioned in ''[[Rayman 2: The Great Escape]]'' and ''[[Rayman Origins]]'', though its only confirmed in-game appearance is in ''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc]]''. Comprising one thousand [[Yellow Lum]]s, the Heart is a glowing conglomeration of light whose energy sustains the harmony and balance of [[the Glade of Dreams]]. It was originally guarded by [[The First King|the First Grand Minimus]], whose [[Grand Minimus|descendants]] took over the job when he died.
==Prior to the events of [[File:YellowLum-RR-TheWoodsofLight.jpgRayman (series)|200pxthe series]]==In ''[[Rayman 2]]'', [[Rayman]] can unlock a number of cosmic secrets relating to the nature of [[The Glade of Dreams|thumbhis world]] by gathering the [[Yellow Lum]]s. This information is collectively known as [[the Knowledge of the World]]. [[The Knowledge of the World|left|One The Knowledge]] contains a number of statements relating to the Heart of the 1World. It says that the [[Yellow Lum]]s are ‘the most important ones’, and that ‘one day, the [[Lum]]s focused their energy into thought,000 and their consciousness brought to life a strange and marvellous creature: [[Polokus]]’. This shows that the [[Yellow Lum]]s which form are synonymous with the Heart – had a significant hand in the birth of [[Polokus]], the god who dreamt [[the Glade of Dreams]] into existence. In ''[[Rayman 3]]'', [[Murfy]] states that ‘the Heart is where all the world’s energy comes from’ – if [[Lum]]s are counted as ‘energy’, this implies that the Heart is wholly responsible for the creation of [[Polokus]], and thus the entire universe. [[The Knowledge of the World.]]also mentions that ‘the universe is made of energy’.
==In ''[[Rayman 2]]''==[[File:RR-PS2-Japanese-ManualFragment-HOTWExplosion.JPG|frame|right|The destruction of the Heart of the World by the [[Robo-Pirate]]s, as depicted in the manual for the Japanese version of ''[[Rayman Revolution]]''.]]At the beginning of ''[[Rayman 2: The Great Escape|Rayman 2]]'', the Heart of the World is destroyed by the [[Robo-Pirate]]s and their leader, [[Admiral Razorbeard]]. The 1000 [[Yellow Lum]]s which formed the Heart (only 800 in the PlayStation version) are scattered about [[the Glade of Dreams]]. This cataclysmic event destroys the natural order, plunging the world into chaos and robbing [[Rayman]] and [[Ly ]] the Fairy|Ly]] of their powers. The shattering of the Heart has serious negative repercussions for [[The Glade of Dreams|the Glade]]; dangerous creatures such as [[caterpillar]]s, [[spiderSpider (Rayman 2)‎|spiders]]s, [[piranha]]s and [[Zombie Chicken]]s begin to appear and multiply. [[Foutch]], the Guardian of the third [[Four Masks of Polokus|Mask the third mask of Polokus]], is driven insane. Over the course of the game, [[Rayman ]] must gather the 1000 [[Yellow LumsLum]]s, ultimately reconstructing the Heart and restoring [[The Glade of Dreams|the world]]'s balance.
At the beginning of ''[[Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc<gallery widths="320px" heights="240px">R2 Lum.png|Rayman 3]]'', [[André]], the villainous leader One of the 1,000 [[Black Yellow Lum]]s, infiltrates [[the Fairy Council]]. He wishes to reach which form the Heart of the World and convert its energy into an army of [[Hoodlum]]s with which he can take over [[the Glade of Dreams]]. [[Globox]] puts a stop to André's plans by inadvertently swallowing him, thus putting the RR-PS2-BBDisk.jpg|The Heart out of immediate danger; for the remainder World is represented as a fountain of yellow energy in the game, André pursues another power source, ritualistic [[the Sceptre Globox Disc|Game of the LeptysGods]].</gallery>
