|Nuva Mask of Shielding|
|Power(s)||Gave user(s) enhanced Shielding|
|Notable Wearer(s)||The Toa Nuva (except Tahu)|
The Hau Nuva was the Kanohi Nuva Mask of Shielding, formed when a destined Kanohi Hau was exposed to Energized Protodermis and transformed. The Hau Nuva gave its user and those nearby the power to shield themselves from physical harm, as long as the user(s) was aware of all attacks made at them. In the event of a mental attack, however, the Hau Nuva was useless. Additionally, attacks such as molecular disruption could disrupt the shield. The only beings able to activate this mask's power were Toa Nuva.
In BIONICLE: Mask of Light, Tahu Nuva used his Hau Nuva to protect Takua and himself from a wave of lava. Later on, Tahu attempted to deflect Panrahk's fragmentation beam, only to have it blast him backward through a stone wall.
