Nui-Jaga were huge scorpion Rahi with powerful stingers, whose strikes could be fatal. Most were slow and not very bright. They could be tricked by showing their reflection on a rock or wall. This was an advantage to Po-Matoran who hunted Nui-Jaga stingers. Being aggressive Rahi, they would attack the reflection, thus trapping their stingers. Nui-Jaga stingers were considered valuable in Metru Nui, but most of those who went after them never returned. Their known colors are light blue and purple. They usually lived in desert but have also been found in volcanic areas.

Once Takua was followed by a Nui Jaga and used a Muaka to get the two into a fight so he could escape. Jaller, Onepu, Hewkii, Macku, Kongu, and Matoro once formed a Matoran Nui to fight off a Nui-Jaga.
