"Vakama gave it to me. Along with a warning--that its power might be too great for even a Toa to wield. And he was almost right."

Legendary Kanohi were extremely powerful Kanohi that controlled fundamental forces of the Matoran Universe. They were far more powerful than other Great Kanohi. Unlike normal masks, which became useless if cracked, Legendary Kanohi gave off small amounts of their power when cracked.

Legendary Kanohi were usually too powerful for Toa to control for very long. Even other powerful beings, such as Makuta, would have had difficulty controlling them. An example was when Vakama tried to use the Mask of Time on Makuta Teridax, but did not know how to properly use it, so he had to be saved by Turaga Lhikan. However, as Artakha wore and used the Mask of Creation for over 100,000 years, he was able to master the immense amount of willpower and mental ability to effectively use it.

Known Legendary Kanohi

The only known Legendary Kanohi were:


  • Despite having a different power level, Legendary Kanohi still bore the title 'Great', and were referred to as such (ie. Great Mask of Time).
  • Unlike other masks, touching the Kanohi Ignika would result in disaster unless one was destined to hold it, such as Matoro.
