"I worked on one of those things ... it's slow, but a lot stronger than your average Vahki."
— Toa Metru Onewa, Maze of Shadows
The Kranua were an elite variant of Vahki designed in secret by Nuparu and built by a select team of Po-Matoran engineers. They were deployed in Metru Nui for peacekeeping like other Vahki, though the Kranua were used for more specialized situations such as controlling Rahi that broke out of the Archives.[BEU, p. 70]
A Kranua made its way to the Maze of Shadows, where it laid in wait in its sand form until Whenua and Matau encountered it. The Kranua attempted to block their escape to the other Toa Metru, but Nuju transported Matau and Whenua out of the Kranua's sandstorm using his Kanohi Matatu. Onewa attacked the Kranua with his Stone powers to force it back into its sand form. As it was transforming, Vakama unleashed a blast of Fire and turned it into a glass statue. Matau then destroyed the Kranua.[BA6, p. 31-36]
Abilities and Traits
Kranua were powerful yet bulky Vahki. They could transform into Sand to slip through cracks and reform elsewhere.[MN-CoL, p. 18] This made Kranua highly effective at pursuing lawbreakers into tiny spaces or confusing rampaging Rahi with sudden disappearances and reappearances. It was particularly ideal for crowd control of Rahi that broke out of the Archives.[BEU, p. 70]
