|Rahkshi of Heat Vision|
|Tools||Staff of Heat Vision|
One was encountered in the Archives by Toa Whenua while he was searching for one of the great disks. Whenua used one of this Rahkshi's weaknesses to his advantage: the Rahkshi's eyesight is weakened after it uses its heat vision. Whenua kept it occupied by making a Muaka attack it while he continued with his quest.
Tahu later destroyed the entire army of Rahkshi with the help of the Golden Armor. The effects of this made Teridax stagger, which gave Mata Nui the chance to push him into the path of a fragment of Aqua Magna.
Rahkshi of Heat Vision, like all Rahkshi, began life as a Kraata of Heat Vision. Should the Kraata be submerged in Energized Protodermis, and if the Kraata were destined to transform, the Antidermis slug would be trans-mutated into a suit of empty Rahkshi armor. Another Kraata of Heat Vision was required to pilot the armor.
A Rahkshi of Heat Vision was kept in the lower levels of the Onu-Metru Archives. However, its Stasis Tube was smashed at some point prior to the Great Cataclysm, allowing it to roam free. While on the loose, it hunted after the Onu-Matoran Archivist Tehutti. When Toa Metru Whenua found the Matoran trapped beneath a number of rocks, he freed him, then encountered the Rahkshi of Heat Vision. The Toa and Matoran were barely able to escape, and both would have been killed by the Rahkshi had Whenua not freed a Muaka, a species of Rahi with a natural tendency to attack Rahkshi, then left the two to fight each other while he and Tehutti escaped.
Reign of Teridax
Following Teridax's hearing of a rebellion on Zakaz, he sent an army of Rahkshi to kill any Skakdi who rebelled against him on the island. By this point, Nektann had allied with Makuta and moved his army to the Southern Island Chain, where the two armies were able to emerge onto Bara Magna and attack its inhabitants when Gresh opened the hatch. The Skakdi and Rahkshi declared war on the Glatorian, and a battle broke out. Following the outbreak, a Rahkshi of Heat Vision came across a piece of Golden Armor, which he kept until it was defeated by Takanuva. The Toa of Light did this by attracting the attention of a second Rahkshi of Heat Vision, then creating a hologram of himself jumping between them. The two Rahkshi blasted "Takanuva," only to find it was an illusion and that they had just struck each other. Toa Tahu later managed to unite the Golden Armor and incinerate the Kraata in the rest of Makuta's Rahkshi army, causing them to all crumble to the desert floor. This left Makuta vulnerable, and ultimately led to his death.
