Skabelon:OtherBeing Marendar is a living weapon created by the Great Beings to eliminate Toa.


Wary of the threat the Toa could pose to the inhabitants of Spherus Magna if they came into conflict, the Great Beings created a living weapon to hunt down and destroy Toa. They named it Marendar, after an Agori word meaning "salvation."Skabelon:OnlineCitation Marendar was placed in a vault beneath Bara Magna[1] to be released if the Toa went rogue.Skabelon:OnlineCitation

After 100,000 years, Mata Nui restored Spherus Magna, and dozens of Toa emerged onto the planet. Detecting an influx of Toa Power, Marendar activated and smashed through the wall of its vault.Skabelon:OnlineCitation

Abilities and Traits[]

Marendar is a sapient,[2] humanoid,[3] biomechanical being.Skabelon:TTVCitation It is somewhat bigger than a Toa or a Glatorian.Skabelon:TTVCitation

Marendar tracks Toa by detecting their Toa Power[4] and has a natural resistance to elemental powers.[5] The Great Beings believed that no Toa team could stand against it.Skabelon:OnlineCitation


  • Marendar was developed around the same time as the elemental power inhibitor, but by different Great Beings.[6]
    • Velika may have helped to create Marendar.[7]
  • Greg Farshtey imagined Marendar eliminating the Toa similarly to how the Sentinels eliminate Mutants in Marvel's X-Men comics. Marendar would adapt to and resist the Toa's elements before killing them with specialized weaponry.Skabelon:TTVCitation
