The desert landscape passed in a yellowish blur, all details obscured by the Toa's immense speed. After a moment, the yellowish blur shifted into a brown one punctuated by flashes of green, and then quickly grew paler again until all Pohatu could see around him was white.

The Kanohi Kakama was the Mask of Speed. It gave its user the power to move and run at amazing velocities.[1][2] While wearing this mask, the user did not have enhanced senses, so that everything appeared to be a blur while running.[3]

Kakama were carved out of a mixture of Teleport and Reconstitute at Random Kanoka on Metru Nui.[4]

Example Usage[]

Great: Pohatu performed a test of his Kakama's powers by running from Po-Koro to Ko-Wahi within a minute.[5]

Set Information[]

  • The Kakama was first released in 2001 in three sets and colors: A dark brown version was released in the Pohatu set, an orange-brown one came with McDonald's promotional Huki one, and an exclusive teal one came with the Tarakava boxed set. The Kakama was also released in red, blue, green, black and white in the Kanohi pack, which contained two randomly-selected masks.
  • In 2002, the Kakama was also released in a similar Mask Pack, this time in gold or silver and also coming with three Krana in addition to the other randomly-selected Kanohi.
  • The orange-brown mask later returned in 2003, when Hewkii's set was redesigned and released as a small set.
  • The Kaukau has "5-MG" code printed on the inside just above the axle which could be entered in the 2001 promotional CD.
  • In 2008, a Noble re-design of the Kakama was released in orange with the Photok figure.
