"It is bad enough the Visorak came to Metru Nui without bringing these foul creatures with them."
— Rahaga Gaaki, Rahi Beasts
|Known locations||Various throughout Matoran Universe (formerly)|
Gate Guardians are predatory Rahi with illusory powers.
After the Visorak horde invaded Metru Nui, Gate Guardians became servants of the horde. The duty of these Rahi was to guard key settlements, although not as vital as those guarded by Kahgarak.Nokama and Gaaki once encountered a Gate Guardian at the Great Temple. Nokama was unable to defeat it with her blows and suffered due to its attacks until Gaaki realized the nature of the Rahi. Nokama used a Water Rhotuka to discover it and defeated the creature.[BA8]
After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Gate Guardians emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[OGDi: Apr 4 2010, 12:11 PM][OGDi: Apr 7 2010, 01:19 PM]
Abilities and Traits
These creatures have the ability to project an image of themselves about two or three times smaller than them, while their real body remains invisible. The projected image repeats the actions of the real Guardian. Enemies often exhaust themselves trying to defeat the small image when their true opponent is hiding from view.[BA8]
The Gate Guardian can be built out of the Visorak canister sets 8742 Vohtarak and 8744 Oohnorak, using instructions included in the back of each set's instruction manual. Its body features a Rhotuka Launcher and silver Rhotuka spinner on either side. Pressing either side of its body causes its mandibles on the corresponding side to squeeze together.
