"The trick is not capturing them. The trick is keeping them from bringing down buildings while you are doing it. Still, Ice Vermin aren't hard to find. Just look for a quake."

Ice Vermin were Rahi found all over Metru Nui, but most commonly in Ko-Metru.

History

The Ice Vermin species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

Until the Great Cataclysm, the Ice Vermin were simple and harmless creatures. However, when the cataclysm occurred, their Rhotuka absorbed some of its energy, thus arming the Rahi. The improvement gave the Ice Vermin the ability to attack creatures much larger than themselves when traveling in packs. The Ice Vermin claimed more and more of the city as their territory as time went on. This led to fights with Kavinika and Stone Rats, weakening all three sides and making them easy prey for the Visorak. Whenua made capturing the Ice Vermin a priority, as they could have destroyed what was left of the city if unchecked, or the Visorak could have mutated these creatures into something far more dangerous.[citation needed: RB?]

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

Abilities and Traits

The Ice Vermin can launch Rhotuka which gives different effects depending on the substance it is launched at. If the Rahi launches the spinner at the ground, they can cause quakes of their own. But if the creatures launch them at another creature, the target will literally shake itself apart. Some Ice Vermin have been crushed by the weight of falling buildings made by the powers of their own Rhotuka.[citation needed: RB?]

Set Information

The Ice Vermin can be built out of the 2005 Rahaga sets 4868 Gaaki, 4869 Pouks, and 4870 Kualus.
