Venom Eels continued to live unperturbed in Aqua Magna's ecosystem after the Shattering.
When the Great Cataclysm caused the destruction of the Pit and released its inmates into the Black Water, the Barraki Ehlek asserted his dominance over the Eels and enlisted them into his underwater army.
This force of Venom Eels were considered a threat to the Matoran of Mahri Nui. The Po-Matoran Dekar once encountered one during a routine hunt, however, due to his possession of the Kanohi Ignika, he was unable to kill it.
Ehlek led his army of eels to attack Mahri Nui, however, he was forcibly convinced by Barraki Carapar to stop.
300 Foot Mutant Venom Eel
A Venom Eel was enlarged by the powers of the Kanohi Ignika up to a length of 300 feet (ninety meters). It attacked Mahri Nui, attracted by its light and movement, but later changed its course when the Matoran, led by Defilak, smashed the city's Lightstones, throwing the city into darkness.
The Venom Eel then attacked the stone cord and tried to squeeze it, but was defeated by the Toa Mahri, specifically Hewkii. Later, the Venom Eel battled an Ancient Sea Behemoth summoned by Kongu's Kanohi Zatth. The two creatures then allied with Gadunka and joined together in fighting the Toa Mahri. The Venom Eel was defeated again by Hewkii, who used his Garai to cut off the eel's gravity, letting a wave carry it away.
Abilities and Traits
Venom Eels are related to Lava Eels. Venom Eels, unlike most sea Rahi, rely primarily on their eyesight. They attack at any trace of motion or light. They also rely to a lesser extent on their hearing.
The eels travel in a sidewinding motion that makes them easy to distinguish once seen. A Venom Eel usually remains camouflaged when hunting, waiting for prey to come to them. The Eel's camouflage is based in their metallic hides, which minimizes reflections from light. They utilize fast-acting venom from their fangs for both defense and offense.
