When the Barraki set up their underwater kingdoms and recruited armies of sea creatures, Kalmah discovered the Sea Squids in the cave later referred to as the Octo Cave. Kalmah took it upon himself to breed the creatures in this cave, later forbidding others, including the other Barraki, to enter since Mantax once ate half the brood.
After hatching from their white eggs, Kalmah treated them harshly and turned them into vicious killing beasts. He accomplished this by starving his squids more than others, making them more effective killers. He then created the Squid Launchers as a means to use the Sea Squids as weapons, and distributed them to the other Barraki. Sea Squids have been used by the Barraki in mass numbers against the giant Venom Eel, and as scouts by Kalmah.
Abilities and Traits
Sea Squids feed by draining the life force from a being through the suckers on their tentacles and transferring the energy into themselves. They are fast and ruthlessly efficient, therefore they are able to prey on beings much larger than themselves.
Sea Squids were used by the Barraki and several other beings in the water surrounding the Pit as weapons.
Sea Squids were featured in various 2007 sets in the form of soft, stretchy translucent rubber. A Sea Squid could be launched from the soft plastic Squid Launcher piece by mounting the squid's head in the front of the launcher while pulling back the tail as demonstrated in the instructions or on an instructional video on BIONICLE.com.
Two yellow-orange Sea Squids were packaged in each Barraki set as well as the Karzahni, Nocturn, and Gadunka sets. Three were featured in the Barraki Deepsea Patrol and Toa Undersea Attack playsets and five in the Toa Terrain Crawler. Excluding the Toa Terrain Crawler and Toa Undersea Attack playsets, each of the above sets featured a Squid Launcher and a pair of clips on which the Sea Squids could be mounted. Seven extra blue-green Sea Squids could be bought in the "Squid Ammo" pack released in 2007. These squids were colored in various blends of blue and green.
A pair of life-size "Splashy Barraki Squids" (one red, one green) were released together in 2007. These were permeable foam balls that were intended to be soaked with water and thrown as a pool toy. The cloth surface and tail of each squid was printed with a face, the Barraki logo, and the insignia of various Barraki.
- In some European countries, the Sea Squids are labeled as "Polyps."
