Birth of the Rahaga was the twenty-fifth issue in the original BIONICLE comic series, and the tenth issue in the BIONICLE: Metru Nui sub-series. It was mailed with the July/August 2005 edition of the LEGO Club Magazine.


Toa Hordika Nuju and Whenua, and Rahaga Bomonga and Kualus, lay buried beneath hundreds of pounds of rubble in the Archives. Battered and unconscious, they seem doomed to remain trapped there while the Visorak complete their conquest of the city of Metru Nui.

Though his body is pinned, Kualus' mind is free to dream of times long past, when he too wore the mantle of a Toa. It was a dark and violent time, then the treachery of the Brotherhood of Makuta was first revealed and six Toa Hagah stood between them and mastery of the universe.

The era of shadow was about to begin...

Toa Hagah Iruini
