|Nuva Mask of Water Breathing|
|Power(s)||Gave user(s) enhanced Water Breathing|
|Notable Wearer(s)||The Toa Nuva|
The Kaukau Nuva was the Kanohi Nuva Mask of Water Breathing, formed when a destined Kanohi Kaukau was exposed to Energized Protodermis and transformed. The Kaukau Nuva gave its user and those nearby the power to breathe underwater for an indefinite amount of time, even at extreme depths. The Kaukau Nuva's power could have been used to suffocate opponents via sharing its power, but Toa considered that to be an immoral application. The only beings able to activate this mask's power were Toa Nuva.
In the Toa Nuva Blog, Gali used her Kaukau Nuva to give herself and the other Toa Nuva the ability to breathe water and survive immense water pressures after she unleashed a Water Nova Blast in Karzahni as a last-resort maneuver against Makuta Icarax.

- A blue Kaukau Nuva was released in late 2002 with the Gali Nuva canister set. This mask was also released in red, brown, black, green, and white as part of the Kanohi Nuva mask packs, to represent the masks collected by the other Toa. The Kaukau Nuva was lastly released in a pearl silver color, to represent the de-powered Gali Nuva.
- In 2008, the Kaukau Nuva was re-released in a new mold, this time representing its swamp-adapted form for Gali Nuva Mistika.
