History

The silver Krana-Kal

Krana-Kal are made by exposing Krana to the same mutagenic substance that transformed regular Bohrok into the Bohrok-Kal. Each Bohrok-Kal carried one Krana-Kal of each type, making a total of forty-eight. Others also existed, as the Bohrok Va carried replacements to the Bohrok-Kal when needed.

When the Bohrok-Kal approached success in their task of freeing the Bahrag, their Krana-Kal turned silver and created a shield which protected the Bohrok-Kal from all harm. However, the Toa were able to stop the Kal by pumping them with their own elemental powers, which caused their abilities to overload, destroying many of them.

After the destruction of the Bohrok-Kal, the Turaga captured several of the Krana-Kal which had managed to eject themselves from the shells before their powers destroyed them.

Abilities and Traits

Unlike the Krana, the Krana-Kal could function independently of the Bahrag and communicate with members of other species. The Krana-Kal had metallic colors when in use, such as gold, steel blue, and iron gray. The Krana-Kal also had similar powers to the regular Krana, and could form a protective shield when something threatened to prevent them from completing their task.

Set Information

The silver Krana-Kal in set form

The Krana-Kal debuted as rubbery plastic accessories in early 2003 in the Bohrok-Kal canister sets, each of which contained one random Krana-Kal in the corresponding color. Bohrok-Kal sets would fling their Krana-Kal if their eyes were pressed.

Krana-Kal were also released in the "Krana-Kal and Kanohi Nuva" pack, featuring three random Krana-Kal and two random Kanohi Nuva, either the thirty-six Kanohi Nuva released earlier in the Kanohi Nuva packs of late 2002 or one of the six Kanohi Nuva masks in silver, symbolizing the masks of the element-deprived Toa Nuva.

Seventy-two limited edition sterling silver Krana-Kal and five thousand limited edition white metal Krana-Kal were also randomly packaged in the Bohrok-Kal sets as a promotion. These symbolize the Krana-Kal minutes before the Bohrok-Kal's mission reaches completion when the Krana-Kal has adopted its special shielding power.
