The answer came with twin beams of pure blazing heat that creased the size of his Kanohi mask. The wall of the corridor sizzled where they struck, and the hallway was suddenly filled with the smell of charred protodermis. Whenua whirled to see a Rahkshi heading right for him, red eyes gleaming in its hideous yellow face.

Rahkshi of Heat Vision were a type of Rahkshi which wielded powers of heat beams. Their secondary color was yellow. Its Kraata type was colored black and bright orange.


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 transformed into a suit of empty Rahkshi armor. Another Kraata of Heat Vision was required to pilot the armor.



A Rahkshi of Heat Vision

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.[1] 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.[2]

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.

Abilities and Traits[]

Rahkshi of Heat Vision had the ability to unleash powerful beams of intense heat in the form of optical lasers. However, this meant they would be blind for a short period of time. The Rahkshi of Heat Vision were some of the few Rahkshi that did not need their staffs to focus their powers.


Rahkshi of Heat Vision carried staffs. However, they were unable to channel their powers through it.
