The others knew Pouks was just buying time. His mask was analyzing and copying Miserix's power, but that took a while to do.

Notable Wearer(s)Pouks

The Mask of Emulation was a Kanohi that gave its user the power to analyze and replicate a power from another being. The length of the replication process varied, depending on the power. When copied, the ability functioned like a temporary mask power. The Mask of Emulation could not copy Rahi powers, other Kanohi powers, or weapon powers. If the user deactivated their mask, they would have to recopy the duplicated power, but the process would be quicker.

Example Usage[]

Great: In Dwellers In Darkness, Pouks attempted to copy Miserix's power of teleportation, only to have the Makuta disrupt the process before it was complete.

Known Wearers[]




  • A BZPower poll was held in mid-2009 to name Pouks's mask, based on a selection of possible titles.
  • The mask was originally part of a BZP fan project as the "Mask of Absorption," but BIONICLE writer Greg Farshtey accepted it into canon and merged it with Pouks' Kanohi.
