"Stand aside, Toa Nuva. You are in my way."
— Tahnok-Kal, Makuta's Revenge
|Status||Contained in self-induced electrical field|
It was Tahnok-Kal who first discovered that the theft of the Nuva Symbols caused the loss of the Elemental Powers of the Toa Nuva. After organizing a plan to rob the Symbols, this Bohrok-Kal shadowed Takua and Jaller as the two journeyed to Ta-Koro following the final showdown and defeat of the Bohrok swarms at Ga-Koro. The Tahnok-Kal trapped the guard in a stasis field of electricity, and stole Tahu's Nuva Symbol. Tahnok-Kal quickly imprisoned Jaller in an electrical cage and defeated Tahu Nuva, bringing a stone archway down on him.
After the first victorious battle against the Toa Nuva, Tahnok-Kal was defeated by Onua and Pohatu, who trapped him under a tree. When its Krana-Kal was taken, it revealed that the Bohrok-Kal had already discovered the entrance to the Bohrok nest.
Tahnok-Kal and the other Bohrok-Kal eventually found the location of the Bahrag, but discovered they were guarded by the Exo-Toa. After defeating them, they proceeded to the Bahrag's cage and the Nuva Cube. As they began to place the symbols on the cube, the Krana-Kal turned a silver color, forming a shield similar to the Kanohi Hau's, protecting Tahnok-Kal and the others from harm.
Eventually, Tahnok-Kal was defeated along with the other Bohrok-Kal when the Nuva Symbol fed it more power than it could handle, trapping it in an electric cage formed by its own power shields.
Abilities and Traits
Tahnok-Kal was the fast, powerful leader of the Bohrok-Kal squad. It had the power of Electricity, which allowed it to send bolts of electricity or to create electric force fields.
Tahnok-Kal used Electric Shields to channel its Electrical powers.
A Tahnok-Kal set was released in early 2003. It contained forty pieces and each set included a randomly packed gold-colored Krana-Kal, though seventy-two random Bohrok-Kal sets were packed with sterling silver Krana-Kal and 5000 with white metal Krana-Kal, both symbolizing the silver form that protected the Bohrok-Kal in the final moments of their mission. Pieces from Tahnok-Kal can be combined with those of Nuhvok-Kal and Pahrak-Kal to create Bohrok-Kal Kaita Za.
