|“||Who sent you?"
"Toa Helryx. Use your mask, you'll see I'm speaking the truth."
"Axonn did just that, calling on the powers of his Kanohi Rode, the Mask of Truth. To his surprise, it told him that his captive was indeed being honest.

|Mask of Truth|
|Power(s)||Let user see through deception|
The Kanohi Rode was the Mask of Truth. It gave its user the power to see through any deception and pierce any disguise. A Rode also enabled its wearer to "see" beings using Kanohi such as an Iden, Huna, Mahiki or Volitak. A Kanohi Rode was always on at a low level, rendering it impossible to deceive a Rode-wearer.
- Great: In Reign of Shadows, Order of Mata Nui member Axonn unknowingly used his Rode to escape a very powerful mental illusion created by Teridax.
- LegoShop@Home.com and BIONICLE Heroes mispelled the Rode as "Roden".
- In prototype versions of the Toa Inika Hewkii was seen wearing a Rode.
