– The Bohrok-Kal, questioning the Toa Nuva
The Bohrok-Kal were six elite Bohrok that were released on Mata Nui for one purpose: free the Bahrag in the event of the Bahrag being imprisoned. The only release was after the Toa Mata trapped the Bahrag. They were controlled by Krana-Kal and were the main antagonists of the first half of the 2003 storyline.
The Bohrok-Kal were originally created by the Bahrag as six regular Bohrok. The queens picked six Bohrok, one from each swarm, and mutated them into more powerful versions of themselves. After their mutation, the six received new powers, the ability to speak, and were controlled by Krana-Kal.
After the Bahrag were sealed by the Toa Mata, the Bohrok-Kal were awakened to enact their mission: free their leaders.
Immediately after imprisoning the Bahrag, the Toa were transformed by Energized Protodermis into more powerful Toa Nuva, and each gained a Nuva Symbol that was tied to their elemental powers. The Bohrok-Kal discovered that the Bahrag's prison was locked by a special Nuva Cube, which required the Nuva Symbols to unlock. The Bohrok-Kal had to steal the Symbols and find the sealed entrance to the Bahrag's underground lair and prison before actually releasing the twin queens.
And indeed, the Kal managed to steal the Symbols easily, inadvertently taking away the Toa Nuva's Elemental Powers, find the lair's entrance, clear a way in, and almost finish their devious task. In the lair, a group of Exo-Toa were guarding the prison; the Bohrok-Kal defeated them easily but it gave the Toa Nuva time to catch up to them. Toa Tahu tried to use the Vahi, the Great Mask of Time, against them. However, even slowed to a near-standstill, the Bohrok-Kal were protected by their silver Krana-Kal. In a last-ditch effort, the Toa banked on their ties to their Nuva Symbols and fed their strength to the Bohrok-Kal, giving them power beyond imagining - too much power for them to control. Their bodies were utterly destroyed by their own powers and only their Krana-Kal remained.
|“||Let's just hope there aren't any swarms of them somewhere. These six look to be enough to deal with.||”|
–Gali Nuva refering to the Bohrok-Kal
The Bohrok-Kal had the powers of Electricity, Magnetism, Sonics, Plasma, Gravity, and Vacuum. They also used a set of enhanced Krana called Krana-Kal that had slightly different powers; and when the Bohrok-Kal were in the final moments before completing their mission, their Krana-Kal turned silver and projected a shield that protected them from harm.
The Bohrok-Kal also had shown the ability to merge into Kaita beings, which combined and amplified the powers of those who took part in the fusion.
