In Final Battle was the fifth issue in the relaunched BIONICLE: Ignition series, and the final comic of 2006. It was originally released with the November/December 2006 edition of the LEGO Club Magazine, and was later collected in BIONICLE 5: The Battle of Voya Nui. This issue saw the Toa Inika and Piraka reach the Chamber of Life.


Believing they have finally defeated the Toa Inika, the Piraka rushed into the Chamber of Life to retrieve their prize: the ancient and powerful artifact known as the Mask of Life. What they found was crushing defeat at the hands of a former ally and his bestial pawn.

Now the revived Toa Inika must pit their strength and skill against the madness of Vezon and the might of Fenrakk. But can they hope to win against enemies who return from every defeat more monstrous and powerful than before? And what of Axonn and Brutaka, locked in combat in the Piraka stronghold?

Above and below the surface of Voya Nui, battles are about to fought, wrongs to be avenged, and the fate of a universe decided.


The Piraka storm into the Chamber of Life, where Vezon is waiting for them. He uses the Spear of Fusion to fuse Vezok and Reidak together. After defeating the other four Piraka, Vezon defuses the two, and they fall unconscious from the shock of separation. Suddenly, the Toa Inika burst into the Chamber. Vezon and Fenrakk then attack the Toa, who fight back well. However, Fenrakk absorbs the force from each attack, growing stronger and stronger. Vezon then reveals that he is in possession of the Kanohi Ignika. Jaller fires at the ground beneath Vezon and Fenrakk, knocking the two into the lava. Just as Jaller is going to jump in after them to retrieve the mask, the duo emerges from the lava, Fenrakk transformed into the Kardas Dragon.

Meanwhile, in the Piraka Stronghold, Brutaka and Axonn duel near the Antidermis vat. Despite repeated blows, Axonn continues to fight, giving a heroic speech as he battles. Brutaka plans to use the Antidermis to make himself stronger, but Axonn smashes the vat with his Giant Axe, dispersing its contents into the air. Back in the chamber, the Toa Inika are losing badly to the Kardas Dragon. Jaller takes out a Zamor Sphere given to him by Axonn and fires it at Kardas, freezing Vezon and Kardas in time and space. Matoro walks over to them and retrieves the mask from Vezon.

Did you think I was gone for good? No, the Mask of Life won't let me go that easily. Wondering where Fenrakk is? This is a way. Defeat us however many times you like, we will always rise again, stronger than before. Incidentally, my new friend--I named him Kardas--produces energy. Lots and lots of energy. And when he releases it...well, I know you're dying to find out what happens...or you will be.
I hoped I could still reach some part of you, Brutaka, some remnant of the hero you once were. But that being is long dead. I renounce you, Brutaka. I deny you. And your evil will not stand!
The keen eyes of Axonn follow Brutaka's gaze. Realizing what his enemy is planning, he whirls, hurling his axe and destroying the Piraka's vat of virus! Later, Axonn will remember Brutaka's scream of rage at the sight of the broken vat and he will do his best to forget the fact that the virus itself seemed to be screaming too.
