"Light has revealed the will of Mata Nui. Our brother must be awakened."
—Takutanuva upon emerging from Energized Protodermis, BIONICLE: Mask of Light

Takutanuva was the sentient being created when Takanuva and Teridax fell into a pool of Energized Protodermis and fused into a single entity, with Takanuva being in control of it. The entity's name was a portmanteau of the names 'Takanuva' and 'Makuta'.

Takutanuva was formed when Takanuva and Teridax fell into the pool of Energized Protodermis in Mangaia. Both beings were fused together into a stronger, more powerful being.

In the short time he was formed, he raised the gate blocking the Protodermis Sea that led to Metru Nui, and revived Jaller from his mask that Hahli was carrying, using a portion of Teridax's life-force. After this he was no longer able to hold the door to Metru Nui and was crushed.

Once he was crushed by the gate to Metru Nui, the two beings split. Takanuva's spirit was absorbed by the Avohkii, and slid into a room that the Matoran, Turaga and Toa Nuva were in, where it was used to revive Takanuva. The Kraahkan slid back into the Mangaia, where it would later be found by the Piraka. Teridax's body remained under the door, his armor cracked under the intense weight of the door, thus causing his essence to leak out.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Being the perfect balance of Light and Shadow, Takutanuva was completely unbiased and did only what was best for the Great Spirit Mata Nui.

Powers and EquipmentEdit

"Light and Shadow have become one."
— Turaga Vakama upon seeing Takutanuva, BIONICLE: Mask of Light

Takutanuva was stronger than any other sentient being, though not as strong as Mata Nui. He had the powers of Light and Shadow, along with all 42 Rahkshi Powers. He also had the ability to revive a life-form by sacrificing some of his own life-force, something no other being in existence could do. He wore the Mask of Light and Shadow.

Trivia Edit

  • Takutanuva's Mask of Light and Shadow appears differently for each version; in BIONICLE: Mask of Light, it is a half-Avohkii/half-Kraahkan; in BIONICLE: The Game, it appears like the Avohkii; in the comics (and on the set), it has the appearance of the Kraahkan.
  • In BIONICLE: Mask of Light, the rust and pitting on Teridax's armor and mask is mended when he becomes part of Takutanuva; this is manifested in the set by Makuta's gunmetal sections being replaced wih gleaming silver.
  • In the set and comics, Takutanuva carries a staff; in the movie and game, he doesn't.
  • Takanuva's Ussanui is used as part of the combination as the set, but it's not used in the combination in either the game or movie versions.
