|A Great Kanohi Mahiki in use|
Shapeshifting is an ability that allows the user to alter their form and physiology to create a different appearance for themselves. Shapeshifting often allows the user to mimic voices as well as appearance, enabling them to effectively pass themselves off as another being. Although shapeshifters may resemble a completely different being, they cannot change their own natural body material.
- Rahkshi and Kraata of Shapeshifting, as well as all Makuta, have Shapeshifting powers. Doing so requires a large amount of energy, which Makuta can acquire quickly by using their Shadow Hand.
- Changing appearance to resemble something/someone else
- Mimicking voices and/or powers
- Exceeding mass bounds by absorbing energy (Makuta exclusive)
All of the following have or had the power of Shapeshifting:
- All Makuta
- All Rahkshi and Kraata of Shapeshifting
- Takutanuva - Formerly, unmerged
- The Rahi, Krahka - Learned to speak Matoran by doing this, but initially could only speak the words that she had previously heard. She also gained the powers of those she imitated.
- Dark Hunter Triglax
- Baterra - can shapeshift, though they only blend into their surroundings for ambush, and do not imitate living beings.
- The Kanohi Ignika can alter itself to take on different mask forms.
- The Great version of the Kanohi Mahiki allows the user to shapeshift.
- The Makuta who were affected by the Pit Mutagen lost their ability to shapeshift, and were locked into the forms they were currently using.
