"Now, it seems he's found the answer - but the solution to this puzzle is another puzzle, mystery piled upon mystery. At times like this he wonders if the Great Beings are truly brilliant beyond imagining, or hopelessly mad. Or if there's even any difference between the two..."

Valley of Fear is the fifth comic in the BIONICLE Glatorian series.

Plot Summary

Mata Nui, accompanied by Click, is traveling through the Black Spike Mountains in search of the location indicated by the map on the Saw Blade Shield and the coin that the Agori Berix discovered in the Underground Lab of the Great Beings. He finally arrives at the Valley of the Maze, preparing to enter the labyrinth to gain access to the tower fortress at its center.

Meanwhile, the desert bandit Sahmad, driving his Baranus V7, challenges the Glatorian Ackar and Kiina in the outskirts of the Agori's Mega-Village. Using their Elemental Powers, Ackar and Kiina successfully subdue him and meet up with Gresh to return to the city. Kiina mentions her concern over Mata Nui's mission to the north and his insistence that he continue alone ever since Berix was injured by a Thornax in a skirmish with Skrall stragglers in the mountains. Ackar reassures her that he will return, as the three warriors arrive at an outcropping overlooking the robot scraps that comprise the city.

Having entered the Maze, Mata Nui encounters a water trap and begins to wade through it. Once submerged at chest level, the water turns to ice. As Mata Nui prepares to break the ice with his sword, the ice transforms into fire, and then into animated plant life. Struggling to break out of the trap, Mata Nui finally emerges and arrives at a dead end. Click transforms into the Scarab Shield, and Mata Nui batters down the wall. Behind it he finds several armed Thornax Launchers. Quickly, Mata Nui uses his shield to defend himself before destroying the Launchers, arriving at the tower in the center of the Maze soon after.

On Aqua Magna, Makuta Teridax, in control of the robotic body of the Matoran Universe, has successfully dissolved many rebellions against him. Knowing that Mata Nui has survived, Teridax decides to travel to Bara Magna to kill him. Lifting off the planet, the Makuta vows to bring death to Mata Nui.
