Endgame was the fourteenth issue in the relaunched BIONICLE: Ignition comic series, and the third comic in the Battle for Power sub-series. It was originally mailed with the September/October 2008 edition of the LEGO Club Magazine, and was later collected in the graphic novel BIONICLE 7: Realm of Fear. It was jointly published by DC Comics and LEGO. It chronicles the next part of the Toa Nuva's quest to awaken Mata Nui.


Gali, having been defeated by Krika, is carried away by him. He asks Gali to leave Karda Nui because if the Toa Nuva complete their destiny and awaken Mata Nui, they will live to see a horrible future of darkness. However, Takanuva arrives and rescues Gali; Krika retreats into the swamp.

When the Toa Nuva, Takanuva, and the newly-arrived "Toa" Ignika re-unite, Takanuva tells them that when Mata Nui awakens, deadly Energy Storms will destroy everything in Karda Nui. The Toa and the Ignika then launch one last massive attack on the Makuta. In the battle, Lewa and Gali create a thunderstorm and Takanuva adds his elemental powers to the battle.

Spotting an opening, Tahu puts the six Keystones they collected into the Codrex. With the protective barrier down, the Toa fly inside the Codrex. However, just before Tahu puts the shield back up, Makuta Antroz slips in, although he is unnoticed. The Toa Nuva end up in a room with machinery and six slots in the floor, and Kopaka realizes that they must have been kept here in their Toa Canisters years ago. Onua pushes a button on a control pannel, which makes the floor of the Codrex lower into another hiden chamber.

At the bottom of the Codrex, three silver bubbles rise up and break open to reveal the Rockoh T3, the Jetrax T6, and the Axalara T9. Kopaka is about to board the Jetrax T9 when Antroz flies down and steals the vehicle from the him, using the vehicle to act as his eyes. Pohatu riding with the Rockoh T3, and Lewa with the Axalara T9, chase Antroz through a maze of tunnels inside the Codrex until they exit the Codrex.

Pohatu tries to stop the Jetrax T6 with stone spikes and a stone fist, but Antroz dodges them and shoots down Pohatu with the Jetrax T6's Midak Skyblasters. Lewa pilots the Axalara into a power dive with the Jetrax and tells Antroz that only one of them will survive this clash. Antroz then tells him that it will be him and charges at the Toa.

You would have made a good Makuta, Gali. You are far to clever to be a Toa. I tell you this--you Toa Nuva are here to awaken the Great Spirit Mata Nui, a mission that requires all six of you. I tell you that if you do that, you and everything you know are doomed to a future more horrible than you can imagine. Leave now, and that future cannot come to pass.
— Makuta Krika to Gali
No words of ours can capture the enormity of this battle, so we won't even try.
— The narration gives up
Now what will come out of this? A new Mask of Power? Some tooth-claw creature? A Matoran marching band?
— Lewa Nuva's curiosity and sarcasm know no bounds
I don't know what these high-flyers are for, but I know they aren't for Makuta! Let's get him!
— Lewa Nuva
