The Battle for the Kanohi Avohkii was a battle fought at Kini-Nui. Six Rahkshi, created by Makuta Teridax to steal the Kanohi Avohkii, attempted to take the Mask of Light from Takua and Jaller. However, the Toa Nuva intervened, and thus the battle began.

- Kill the Herald of the Toa of Light
Jaller and Takua, the two Matoran who were to find the Seventh Toa, had followed the glow of the Kanohi Avohkii all around Mata Nui on Takua's Ussal Crab Pewku, believing that its glow would lead them to the Toa of Light. When they finally arrived at Kini-Nui, Takua, frustrated and tired, shook the Avohkii angrily. This caused the Avohkii's light to transform part of a statue, changing it partially into a mask. At this point the Rahkshi Lerahk, Guurahk and Panrahk ambushed the two Matoran and Pewku, surrounding them at the Amaja-Nui. As the Matoran fled, the other three Rahkshi emerged from the ground. As the two Matoran readied their weapons for what they believed would be their last stand, a large glow permeated through the temple. From a cliff far above, the Toa Nuva Gali, Lewa, and Tahu jumped down and drew their weapons, encircling the two Matoran to protect them from the oncoming Rahkshi. As the creatures moved to confront them, the Toa Nuva Pohatu, Onua, and Kopaka arrived as well, having escaped a cave-in in Onu-Koro with Kopaka's help. These three Toa Nuva joined ranks with their brothers and sister, uniting the Toa Nuva.
Lerahk, Guurahk, and Panrahk moved first, shooting a combined beam of energy at the Toa. This was blocked when Tahu declared that the Toa would not be broken and activated his Kanohi Hau Nuva, shielding the entire group from the blast. When the shield dissipated, Toa Lewa leaped forward, unleashing a cyclone of wind that picked up sand as it encompassed the three Rahkshi. Tahu joined Lewa and used his powers, unleashing a stream of fire at the three Rahkshi caught in Lewa's sandstorm. The fire fused the sand and imprisoned the Rahkshi in glass, removing them from the fight.
Meanwhile, Gali jumped down to face Kurahk and Turahk. When Kurahk swung its Staff of Anger, Gali dodged, causing the staff to hit Turahk. This placed the Rahkshi of Fear temporarily out of the fight. When Vorahk moved to join Kurahk, Pohatu flung his Climbing Claws, locking the two Rahkshi together. Onua and Tahu combined their powers to hit the two Rahkshi with a blast of lava. Gali cooled down the substance with a blast of water, Kopaka used his ice power, freezing the two Rahkshi.
Distracted by this victory, the Toa did not notice Turahk recover and advance on the two Ta-Matoran. The Rahkshi of Fear surprised Jaller and Takua, unleashing its powers of fear on the latter, who was holding the Avohkii. This attack caused Takua to become frozen with fear. As the voice of the Makuta entered Takua's mind, the Turahk prepared to kill him with another blow. Jaller, seeing Turahk's move, jumped onto the Rahkshi of Fear's staff to take the blow, and was hit by the full force of Turahk's blast of pure fear. At this point, the Toa Nuva finally noticed the recovered Turahk and moved to finish off the Rahkshi.
As the Toa Nuva took on the last of the Rahkshi, Takua shook off Turahk's fear attack and ran to his dying friend Jaller's side. Jaller, extremely weakened, told his friend that he had seen the hero in Takua and knew who the real Toa of Light was. Then Jaller fully succumbed to Turahk's fear attack, leaving Takua stricken with grief. As Jaller's last words came back to him, Takua realized what he had to do. Though he hesitated, he donned the Kanohi Avohkii, and energy from the mask enveloped Takua in a great light, blinding even the Toa Nuva. When the light had passed, Takua had become a Toa, and presented himself as Takanuva, Toa of Light. Testing his powers, the new Toa unleashed a blast of light at Turahk, defeating him, and finished transforming the statue, which turned out to be a carving of his mask as a Matoran.
After the battle, Takanuva and the Toa Nuva briefly honored Jaller's memory. They then built the Ussanui using pieces of the Rahkshi. Using power from the captured Kraata, the Ussanui would take Takanuva down to the Mangaia to face Teridax. Takanuva told the Toa Nuva to gather the Matoran and Turaga while he went down alone. Before he left, Hahli placed Jaller's mask on the Ussanui, to commemorate him as Takanuva's herald. After this, Takanuva flew down the entrance to Mangaia. Takanuva soon encountered the door to Teridax's lair. Hoping to plow through it, he hit the door at full speed, wrecking the Ussanui. As Takanuva investigated the wreckage, Hahli emerged as a stowaway, and revealed that she had decided to be the Chronicler, as Takua's transformation had left the job post open. As the two entered Teridax's lair, Teridax himself emerged from the shadows and began taunting the Toa and preying on Takanuva's inexperience. Takanuva ordered Hahli to run back to the surface and summon the others while he challenged Teridax in the final battle for Mata Nui.
