The Turaga Takanuva in an alternate timeline was a former Av-Matoran and Toa of Light.


In this timeline, Takanuva's life before The Kingdom was exactly the same as the main universe's Takanuva. However, when Toa Mahri Matoro failed to bring Mata Nui back from the dead, everybody evacuated to the island of Mata Nui. Using the last of his Toa Power, Takanuva created a barrier of light around the Matoran Universe exits to keep the Makuta out. The Toa then transformed Balta, Kapura, Velika, Defilak, Dalu and Tanma into the next generation of Toa. Afterwards, Takanuva became the head of the new kingdom's leading council.

10,000 years later, Takanuva met his alternate universe counterpart and had a meeting with him and a few others, including Toa Tanma. They later went to go get the alternate Takanuva a new weapon to replace his confiscated Staff of Light. Arriving at the hut of some Nynrah Ghosts, both Takanuvas entered, where Toa Takanuva received a Power Lance and Midak Skyblaster.

After Teridax's death, Toa Takanuva was sent back to his universe. Turaga Takanuva then oversaw the construction of a statue of Matoro.

Powers and Tools[]

As an Av-Matoran, Takanuva originally possessed minuscule Light powers, enabling him to generate blasts of light and change the color of his armor. As a Toa of Light, Takanuva could manipulate and control light on a much stronger level, making it possible to shoot a powerful beam of light at enemies that could either freeze or destroy them, or create a sphere of light energy that he could throw, among other things. As a Turaga, Takanuva possessed severely weakened Light powers.

Although a Toa, and later a Turaga, Takanuva still had the Av-Matoran ability to form a mental link with another Toa. He could also alter his apparent color, and make holograms of himself.


As a Matoran, Takanuva wore a powerless blue Pakari. Upon his transformation in a Toa, Takanuva's mask was the Avohkii, the Great Kanohi of Light, which augmented his Elemental Powers and could bring peace and understanding to others. It could also reverse the effects of the Kraahkan. As a Turaga, this version of Takanuva wore the Noble Avohkii. This mask possessed the same powers as the Great Avohkii, but on a much weaker level.

When a Toa, Takanuva carried the Staff of Light as his Toa Tool, allowing him to more efficiently channel his elemental powers. After his transformation into a Turaga, Takanuva carried a Badge of Office which doubled as both a cane for his frail body and a symbol of his authority.
