"Each contained a portion of his consciousness and could function independently of his body as a whole. This allowed him to send parts of himself on the attack as a swarm, or fly, to evade physical attacks more easily, and to slip through spaces too small for an insect."

Protodites are microscopic Rahi that have existed since before Mata Nui was first awakened.


Protodites were created by the Great Beings to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

The Protodites once held in the Onu-Metru Archives escaped their enclosure long ago, where they were preyed upon by the Archives Moles residing there.

When the Piraka Zaktan was exposed to the Shadowed One's disintegration eye beams, his body mass was transformed into a swarm of billions of Protodites. These Protodites never stopped moving, so Zaktan's body always appeared to be writhing. The number of Protodites making up his body was greatly reduced when Zaktan was exposed to the Pit Mutagen, and were all thought to be destroyed when Zaktan was seemingly killed by Teridax. All of these Protodites later became part of the Skakdi Fusion.

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


Protodax are Protodites enlarged trillions of times by the power of the Kanohi Ignika. They guarded the 777 Stairs on Voya Nui and would attack anyone attempting to steal the Mask of Life.

The Toa Inika encountered a group of Protodax during their Quest for the Mask of Life. The Protodax had the Toa surrounded before being driven away by Umbra.

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

Abilities and Traits

Protodites are microscopic in stature, but are known to gather in swarms.

Protodax look identical to a regular Protodite in shape and figure, but on a much larger scale. Protodax also possess the ability to clone themselves after being struck with a weapon or power. The Protodax were incredibly ill-tempered and acted with extreme hostility toward all other living things; it is unknown if this is the natural behavior of Protodites or if their personalities were altered by the Ignika to make them better guardians.


At least one Protodax carries a Zamor Launcher, taken from a being that attempted to claim the Ignika and failed, which can fire Zamor Spheres whose powers are to permanently shrink a target down to the size of a Protodite.

Set Information

The Protodax can be built out of parts from the Piraka sets Hakann, Avak, and Zaktan using instructions included in the May–June 2006 issue of LEGO Brickmaster magazine. Its two heads each feature a battery-powered LED in the eyes, activated by pressing on the top of the head. The model was designed by Daniel Lipkowitz.


"That 'body made of multiple little pieces' thing is a neat trick. Must be lousy when you sneeze, though."
Toa Nuva Tahu to Piraka Zaktan, Island of Doom
"The Protodax are violent beasts. They do not kill with honor – they simply kill."
— Umbra, Inferno
