Of course it was – we won, didn’t we, thanks to you. We’re Toa. Don’t we always win in the end? So stop frowning and come on, the Matoran are putting on a celebration for us.

Nikila was a Toa of Lightning and former tactician of the Toa Cordak. She died along with the rest of her team (with the exception of Lesovikk) during a battle against some Zyglak.


Nikila was originally created as a Vo-Matoran. Around the time of the Toa Mata's creation, Nikila was transformed into a Toa and joined the Toa Cordak, the first Toa Team in the Matoran Universe. Nikila and her team were stationed originally on a southern island, where they encountered a tribe of Zyglak. In the following battle, Lesovikk hesitated for a split second, giving the Zyglak the upper hand. Nikila was killed in the battle alongside the rest of her team[1], and only Lesovikk escaped.

Alternate Past[]

When Lesovikk had attempted a sneak approach on Karzahni, he was given a vision through Karzahni's Kanohi Olisi of the day Nikila and his other teammates had died. The difference was that in the vision, they had battled a sentient cloud of acid and had all lived. Lesovikk was enthralled by seeing them again and fell into a trance that he did not want to leave. He managed to leave the trance when Nikila said Zyglak hence reminding Lesovikk how his team died. So he decided to look away knowing that it was all a lie.


Nikila was Lesovikk's best friend, and was also the tactical leader of the team. She was a bit overconfident, believing that Toa were invincible.

Powers and Equipment[]

As a Vo-Matoran, Nikila possessed latent Electrical powers, which were only able to manifest themselves in the form of an increased resistance with electrical shocks. Upon her transformation into a Toa, Nikila gained full access to her Elemental Lightning powers. She could attack opponents with blasts of electricity and summon lightning bolts, among other electricity-based powers.

Nikila wore a Mask of Possibilities, and wielded a Trident.


  • Nikila was the first Toa of Lightning introduced in the story.
  • Nikila's appearance was designed by BZPower member Vrahno.
