Pronunciation BRAH-kas

Brakas are mischievous monkey-like Rahi.


The Brakas species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe. Brakas made their homes on Metru Nui and in the Voya Nui region of the Southern Continent.[citation needed]

On Metru Nui, Brakas were such pests that the Matoran asked Turaga Dume to have them banned from the city. Dume had Vahki capture all the specimens and put them in the Archives, from which they later escaped.[BEU, p. 18]

After the Great Cataclysm, a number of Brakas made their way from Metru Nui to Mata Nui, and lived in the jungles of Le-Wahi.[BEU, p. 18] Some of the southern Brakas survived Voya Nui's ascent through the Southern Continent's dome and resided on the island.[citation needed]

1,000 years later, after the Matoran of Mata Nui returned to Metru Nui, the northern Brakas followed. When the Toa Mahri destroyed the Cord and sent Voya Nui back to its place on the Southern Continent, its Brakas population may have not survived the descent.

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Brakas emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

Brakas are not especially dangerous, though they can work themselves up into a frenzy and become a mild threat to Matoran. They make a distinctive "kau kau" noise,[BEU, p. 18] which inspired the name of the Kau Kau Staff.[BEU, p. 53]


  • The word 'Brakas' is often used as an insult to someone of lesser intelligence.[BL8][IC2]
