'''Kraata''' were a slug-like species created by [[Makuta (Species)|Makuta]] from their own essence, with each having one of the many powers Makuta possess as well as the ability to infect [[Kanohi]] Masks by touch. As such, there were forty-two breeds of Kraata that could exist, each with its own power and dual coloration. All Kraata went through six stages of life, which changed the arrangement of the features on their head as well as the magnitude of their power. However, there also existed a rare seventh stage that few Kraata entered: Those who did became solid violet, and gained the ability to infect Kanohi from a distance - a power that was only hindered when the Kraata was firmly gripped.
 
   
Kraata could transform into [[Rahkshi]] armor if immersed in [[Energized Protodermis]], which could then be possessed by a Kraata of the same type.

'''Kraata''' were a sluglike species that spread an [[Kraata Virus|infectious virus]] and could transform into [[Rahkshi]] if immersed in [[Energized Protodermis]]. Each had a unique power and could infect [[Kanohi]], enslaving the mask's wearer to the will of a [[Makuta]].
   
The island of [[Mata Nui (Location)|Mata Nui]] was once infested by Kraata created by [[Teridax]], and were responsible for most of the infected masks Makuta used to enslave the native [[Rahi]]. Over time, the [[Turaga]] of the island hunted and captured most of the Kraata in small stasis tubes, and sealed them in a secluded cave on the outskirts of [[Po-Wahi]].
+
Makuta create Kraata from their own essence, with each having one of the many powers Makuta posses as well as the ability to infect [[Kanohi]] Masks by touch.
   
Once, a Kraata was experimented on and exposed to the same energies that turned six [[Bohrok]] into [[Bohrok-Kal]]. This enhanced [[Kraata-Kal]] was sentient, much stronger than regular [[Rahkshi]] armor, and went on to join the [[Dark Hunter]]s.
+
There were 42 breeds of Kraata. Each could go through 6 main stages of growth, but there was also a special seventh stage that few Kraata even had the genetic potential for, much less survive long enough to reach.
   
[[Shadow Leech]]es were mutant Kraata created by [[Mutran]] to drain a target's moral [[Light]].

*'''Stage 7''': Or '''Shadow Kraata''', is capable of infecting targets from a far distance. Shadow Kraata are not identified by their shape but by their color; they can take the shape of any of the previous six stages but are always purple. Most Kraata only develop to Stage 6, thus Shadow Kraata are very rare.
