|“||...[Onewa] triggered his mask power, reaching into the mind of Matau. As a crafter, he knew just when a hammer was needed and when a more delicate tool would get the job done. He carefully applied the mask-energies to drive out the Vahki's influence.||”|

The Kanohi Komau was the Mask of Mind Control. It gave its user the power to see into another's mind and control it. However, it did not allow power over beings with no mind, such as Vahki and some types of Rahi. The Noble version could not control creatures as mentally powerful as the user for as long as the Great Komau. Both versions could create mental pain in the target.
- Great: In BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui, Toa Onewa first used his Komau to force Whenua to sit down. He later used it to make Krekka distract Nidhiki from killing Turaga Lhikan.
- Noble: Toa Mata Lewa used a Noble Komau to control a Nui-Kopen to transport himself and others out of a Nui-Rama hive in the Mata Nui Online Game.

The Noble Komau was released in 2001 as part of the Turaga Onewa set. It was also released in the colours of the other Turaga, orange, lime green, light blue, dark grey, and light grey so it could be used with the other sets. Two yellow Infected Komau were included in the Manas set.
In 2004, it was released in the Toa Metru Onewa set along with a dark blue and silver, noble version in the Vhisola set. In 2005, Onewa's Komau was released in a Hordika mutated version with the Toa Hordika Onewa set.
