PronunciationMah-HEE-kee

The Mahiki was the Mask of Illusion. The Great Mahiki gave its user the power to shapeshift. The Noble Mahiki did not allow the user this ability, and only let them project physical illusions.[1] Certain Kanohi, such as the Elda, Arthron and Rode, were able to see through the usage of a Mahiki.

Mahiki were carved out of a mixture of Reconstitute At Random and Weaken Kanoka on Metru Nui.[2]

Example Usages[]
