Lightning Bugs are small insect Rahi who can deliver electric shocks.


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

After the Great Cataclysm, Lightning Bugs came to inhabit the island of Mata Nui. Many were placed under the influence of Teridax, and lived in the Nui-Rama Hive.

1,000 years into the Great War, the Nui-Rama captured the Matoran of Le-Koro and put them to work in the hive, where each was monitored by a Lightning Bug. On the occasion that a Matoran would falter, they would be shocked by their Lightning Bug overseer until they resumed their mining. When Onua arrived to remove Lewa's Infected Kanohi, a Lightning Bug crawled onto Onua's shoulder, which he lifted using his Kanohi Matatu and sent flying towards Lewa, knocking off his Infected Kanohi.[MNOG, Ch. 6]

A short time later, these Lightning Bugs returned to Metru Nui with the Matoran after the defeat of Teridax.

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, all surviving Lightning Bugs left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.

Abilities and Traits

Lightning Bugs can generate a mild electrical shock, enough to cause significant pain. They come in shades of blue, yellow, or purple.
