"His tale is broken, incomplete. But it is the tale told in my dreams, or close to it. I have been summoned--I and others--to challenge a mighty evil. To defeat it, I will need great power. The Kanohi Masks will give me that power."
Toa Mata Kopaka thoughts, Comic 1: The Coming of the Toa

The Coming of the Toa was the first BIONICLE comic of the original BIONICLE comic series. It centered on Toa Mata Kopaka and Pohatu as they began their quest for the Masks of Power.


The comic begins on a beach with a canister surrounded by Ussals. The canister lid blasts off; Kopaka emerges and builds himself. Kopaka travels through Ko-Wahi, eventually meeting Matoro, who was watching him. Kopaka initially attacks Matoro, but quickly realizes that he's an ally. Matoro tells Kopaka where one of the Great Masks of Power can be found, at the Place of Far Seeing. Matoro then takes Kopaka to meet Turaga Nuju. On the way, the two are attacked by a Nui-Rama. Matoro fell off the cliff they were on, but Kopaka leapt off and saved him by using his powers to create a new bridge. They then were met by Nuju, who told Kopaka about Teridax (known as the Makuta at the time), the history of Mata Nui, his powers and how to defeat Teridax, by collecting the Great Masks of Power. While Kopaka was walking up the mountain, Pohatu accidentally trapped him under a boulder. After Kopaka got out Pohatu insisted on coming along, Kopaka hesitatingly allowed him to come. When they reached the top Kopaka saw and claimed a Hau. Kopaka, after switching back to his Akaku, saw four beings of power, Tahu, Lewa, Onua, and Gali. He and Pohatu went down the mountain immediately to meet them.
