Tunnelers are lizard-like Rahi.


The Tunneler species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

A population of Tunnelers lived in Po-Metru in Metru Nui. Toa Metru Vakama and Onewa defeated one by making it turn into glass, a form too fragile to withstand its weight if it moved.

After the Matoran Universe was ruined in the fight between Mata Nui and Teridax, the Tunnelers immigrated to Spherus Magna.

Abilities and Traits

Tunnelers are about twice the length of a Matoran. They eat solid Protodermis and have been known to burrow into warehouses, where they consume both raw Protodermis and finished tools. Although they don't usually pose a real threat to Matoran, occasionally one will give in to a "madness" and rampage through Matoran work areas. Signs of this condition include red eyes and mottled scales.

Their primary defense is their ability to take on the form of any force directed at them (i.e. When Fire is blasted at them their bodies are converted to fire). This can make them very dangerous, but can also be exploited as a means of defeating them.
