User(s)Toa Metru Whenua (Formerly)

The Earthshock Drills were Whenua's Toa Tools that he used while he was a Toa Metru. They were able to control his power over Earth as well as spin at very high speeds, allowing him to dig his way through anything in a short time. They also produced an extremely high pitched hum, which was hard to listen to.

When Whenua was mutated into a Toa Hordika, the Earthshock Drills mutated into a pair of Thumpers.

When he later became a Turaga, they transformed into the Drill of Onua.

Example Usage[]


Whenua using his Earthshock Drills

In BIONICLE Adventures 2: Trial by Fire, Whenua used his Drills' high-pitched frequency to drive away a Giant Mutant Ussal while he and Nuju were searching for the Onu-Metru Great Disk.

Set Information[]
