Rise of the Rahkshi is the 13th BIONICLE comic.
Teridax has returned and, hoping to kill the herald and take the Avohkii to stop the coming of the Toa of Light, he releases Rahkshi Lerahk, Panrahk, and Guurahk. The three Rahkshi attack Tahu and Gali Nuva, who are trying to stop the Rahkshi from getting to Po-Koro. Lerahk attacks Tahu, but misses, and Guurahk creates a chasm in the ground that Gali falls into, only barely managing to grab the edge. Just before Guurahk strikes Gali again, Lewa knocks it out of the way, only for the vine he is swinging on to be destroyed by Guurahk.
Lerahk uses his poison to trap the Toa into a corner, then all three Rahkshi bring the cliff down, which buries the Toa Nuva in rubble. The Rahkshi then continue towards their original destination--Po-Koro.
Explaining the nature of Kraata, Turaga Whenua shows Pohatu and Onua a cavern in Po-Wahi where the Turaga have secretly kept thousands of Kraata in suspended animation. Suddenly, the Rahkshi arrive and cause the cave to collapse. The Toa and Turaga avoid the rubble but the blast cracks open the Kraata containers, freeing them.
Kopaka arrives near Po-Koro, where the Toa Nuva had planned to have a meeting, when all six Rahkshi corner him.
