Nuhvok were a subspecies caste of the Bohrok.


Nuhvok were created by the Great Beings, basing them off of the Baterra. They were created out of destined Av-Matoran whose life span had ended.

A Nuvohk was later exposed to a mutagenic substance used by the Bahrag, transforming it into Nuhvok-Kal.

Teridax, after his defeat by the Toa Mata, awakened the Bohrok early. After their awakening, a swarm of Nuhvok, along with a swarm of Lehvak, attacked Le-Koro, where they enslaved all its inhabitants. They were later freed.

The Nuhvok were put to sleep after the Toa Mata combined their powers to imprison the Bahrag.

The Nuhvok were later awakened by the Toa Nuva when they were doing a list of tasks Axonn gave them to do. Upon their awakening, they cleansed the island of Mata Nui, after which the Nuhvok then returned to the Bohrok Nest, where they remain until needed.

Personality and Traits[]

The most solitary of the swarms, Nuhvok wouldn't immediately defend themselves, but when they determined a threat, they would strike out with their shields. If backed into a corner, they would strike out tenaciously until help arrived. Nuhvok were at their most vulnerable in open spaces. Therefore, the best strategy for catching a Nuhvok was to lure it above ground away from its swarm.

They were skilled tunnelers, and were active all over Mata Nui. They had excellent night vision, but didn't see well in bright light. They were also not particularly bright and multiple Nuhvok could be stopped by the same trick.

Powers and Equipment[]

Nuhvok controlled the elemental power of Earth. Their Earth Shields allowed them to channel this power.
