I have known your kind before, Piraka. For more than 100 centuries, I have looked into the face of evil again and again. It sickens me. YOU sicken me! Leave this island. Give up your mad dreams. Or suffer the consequences.

Vengeance of Axonn was the second issue of the BIONICLE: Ignition series, and the third comic of 2006. It was originally released with the May/June 2006 edition of the LEGO Club Magazine, and was later collected in BIONICLE 5: The Battle of Voya Nui. This comic saw the Order of Mata Nui member Axonn directly confront the Piraka.


The Piraka have triumphed on Voya Nui! Only six Matoran remain free to challenge the invaders. All others beings foolish enough to fight back have been defeated.

The way seems clear for the Piraka to achieve their goal: finding and stealing the powerful Mask of Life. Universal disaster is only days away. But the Piraka are unaware of the presence of a mysterious being who life is dedicated to protecting the mask.

And what the Piraka don't know may destroy them...


On Voya Nui, the Piraka have gone to war with themselves. Explosions and eyebeams fill the air as Zaktan interrupts the conflict. The Piraka are trying to find the Mask of Life, but don't know where to begin their search. However, there is one person who might know: Vezon. They used to have a seventh member; Vezon abandoned them and sought the Mask of Life on his own. The group's leader commands Thok and Reidak to track down the rogue Piraka. Despite their grumbling, the two comply, searching out-of-the-way parts of the shoreline for clues. Upon finding the remains of Vezon's transport canister, a rapidly growing chasm confronts the two villains--heading straight toward them! It is then that Axonn reveals himself and grabs both Piraka. The powerful being smashes both of the would-be theives together and attempts to persuade them to abandon their quest for the Mask of Life. Thok rejects this and attempts to attack.

Axonn deflects the assault with ease. Reidak tries to throw a boulder, but the Order of Mata Nui member quickly smashes the rock with his Giant Axe. Thok and Reidak try to talk down their attacker, asking him where Vezon has gone. Axonn dismisses their query, but before he can finish off the two, someone else attacks him. From behind, another being approaches, declaring that power belongs to Brutaka! Elsewhere, six canisters wash up on the shores of Voya Nui. From within these canisters, six mysterious new heroes emerge, ready to confront the Piraka.
