The sudden gust that resulted gave [Lewa] a quick lift. But he soon left the wind behind, floating upward on his own power.

The Kanohi Miru was the Mask of Levitation. It gave its user the power to float and glide on air.[1][2] This mask prevented beings from falling, but provided no thrust, as the Kanohi Kadin did. The user could activate and use the Kanohi's power from a standing start.

While the Kanohi Miru is unable to provide thrusted flight for most users, Toa Lewa is a known exception: as a Toa of Air, Lewa is able to combine the powers of the Miru with his own command of air to attain flight using thrust from powerful wind currents.

Similar to Lewa's uses of his elemental powers to compliment the capabilities of the Kanohi Miru, Toa Tahu was also able to achieve a similar effect by using heated air to also generate lift (though to a lesser magnitude than Lewa's mastery of the technique).

Theoretically, other Toa of Air or Toa of Fire may be able to achieve similar results if their mastery rivals that of Lewa or Tahu, but Lewa and Tahu are the only known Toa of Air and Toa of Fire who are users of the Kanohi Miru .

Miru were carved out of a mixture of Teleport and Weaken Kanoka on Metru Nui.[3]

Example Usage[]

Great: Moments after acquiring the mask, Toa Mata Gali used her new Kanohi Miru to float on air, preventing her from falling off the top of a mountain.[4]

Set Information[]

  • The Miru was first released in two 2001 sets: A green one was included with Lewa, while a turquoise version came with Kongu. A supplementary Kanohi pack was released as well, and it was possible for a red, blue, white, brown or black Miru to be included as one of the pack's two randomly-selected masks. A limited edition, translucent neon green version of the Miru was also available as a promotional item at selected stores and LEGOLand.
  • The Miru was also available in silver or gold in a similar supplementary Kanohi pack released in 2002, along with another random gold or silver mask and three Krana.
  • The Miru has "3-LT" code printed on the inside just above the axle which could be entered in the 2001 promotional CD.
