"I manage to block his blow with the stinger tail. But how long can it last against cold iron? Not long, it seems, as Strakk's power forces it toward... my mask? Yes, my mask indeed. Now, let's try this again."

Mata Nui using the sword

While on Bara Magna, Mata Nui used a sword as his primary offensive weapon.

History

The sword was originally a Vorox's stinger tail, which Mata Nui broke off from a Vorox when it tried to attack him. Mata Nui kept the broken stinger, and began using it as a weapon.

During a fight with Strakk, Mata Nui used the stinger tail to prevent the Ice Tribe warrior from attacking a downed Ackar following an arena match. Mata Nui was pressed to the ground, and used the stinger tail to shield himself from Strakk's Ice Axe. The stinger tail was forced towards, and made contact with, the Kanohi Ignika, resulting in it being transformed into a brand new sword, which Mata Nui used to defeat his opponent. He used the sword in further conflicts, the most notable being his battle with the Skrall leader Tuma.

He later abandoned it when he transferred his consciousness into the Prototype Robot.

Example Usage

In The Legend Reborn, Mata Nui used the blade to slice through a clifftop, creating a rockslide, which buried a Skopio.
