The Mahiki was the Mask of Illusion. The Great Mahiki gave its user the power to change how others perceived them. The Noble Mahiki did not allow the user this ability, and only let them project illusions. Elda, Arthron and Rode could see through the usage of a Mahiki.

Mahiki were carved out of a mixture of Reconstitute At Random and Weaken Kanoka on Metru Nui.

Example UsagesEdit


Toa Mata Kopaka using a Noble Mahiki

Great: In BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui, Toa Matau tricked Nidhiki and Krekka by using his Mahiki to pose as each of them in turn; later, he shapeshifted into a Vahki for disguise.
Noble: Kopaka used a Noble Mahiki to create two mirror duplicates of himself to confuse a Muaka in the Mata Nui Online Game.
