The view through an Akaku Nuva's eyepiece as shown in Mask of Light.

The Akaku Nuva is the Kanohi Nuva Mask of X-Ray Vision, created when a destined Kanohi Akaku is dipped in Energized Protodermis. It allows its user and those nearby to see through objects and illusions. They are fitted with a telescopic lens to give the user(s) enhanced viewing. For some reason, this mask's power cannot pierce certain materials, such as Karda Nui's mist and the Metru Nui dome. The only beings able to use this mask are Toa Nuva.

Example Usage

Kopaka used his Akaku Nuva to give himself, Tahu, and Gali X-ray vision to examine their surroundings for traps during one of their quests for the Kanohi Nuva in Tales of the Masks.
