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, Takutanuva 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 Traits[]

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 Equipment[]

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

Takutanuva possessed an equal balance of Light and Shadow energy. This resulted in him being able to see the world from an unbiased point of view. He also possessed access to all of Teridax's forty-two Kraata powers. The fusion granted Takutanuva immense strength, which he demonstrated by being able to open a heavy doorway in Mangaia. 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.

Takutanuva wore the Great Mask of Light and Shadow, a mask that granted him the powers of both the Avohkii and the Kraahkan. He also wielded a large, two-bladed polearm.

  • Takutanuva's Mask of Light and Shadow appears differently in 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 with gleaming silver.
