Legends Part 2: Secret of the Swarm was the second of a three-part mini-comic promotional series released in conjunction with McDonald's. Randomly selected card packets of BIONICLE: The Bohrok Awake also came packaged with this comic.


The Toa face an awesome challenge--swarms of Bohrok bringing chaos to Mata Nui! What is the secret of the krana they carry, and how can it help the Toa defeat the swarms? To find out, the Toa must make the most dangerous journey of all...


Kongu is looking for his lost disk. While looking for it, he runs into a Lehvak. He flees back to Le-Koro to warn the Turaga. Matau orders him to warn the other villages: the island is in great danger! The six breeds of Bohrok appear, each demonstrating their elemental powers. The robots rage across Mata Nui, destroying everything in their path. The Toa fight and trap the Bohrok everywhere they can, collecting their Krana. However, this is not enough. In order to end the threat of the Bohrok swarms, the Toa will have to fight them at the source of their power: the Bohrok nest!
