The 2015 Online Animations are a series of animations detailing the events of 2015's BIONICLE reboot. The animations are done in a two-dimensional format, and posted to the BIONICLE.com website periodically.


Season 1

Two Mask Makers, Ekimu and Makuta, create Masks of Power for the Islanders of Okoto. Ekimu's masks are favored over Makuta's, and Makuta grows jealous. Disobeying a sacred law, Makuta forges the Mask of Ultimate Power. When Makuta dons the mask, he is corrupted, and the mask begins to destroy the island. Ekimu knocks the mask from Makuta's face, and a shockwave sends both brothers into an endless sleep and scatters the Masks of Power across Okoto. The Protectors of the time find Ekimu's body and hear the Prophecy of Heroes, then lay him to rest in a tomb. They record the Prophecy of Heroes to be passed down through the generations of Protectors.

Thousands of years later, Skull Spiders menace Okoto, seeking the Masks of Power. The current Protectors gather at the Temple of Time to fulfill the Prophecy of Heroes, summoning six Toa onto Okoto. Narmoto, Protector of Fire, greets Tahu upon his arrival in the Region of Fire, and informs him of the situation and his destiny. The other Protectors do so for the other Toa: Kopaka, Onua, Lewa, Pohatu, and Gali. The Protectors guide the Toa through their regions to find their Golden Masks of Power, although they are followed by Skull Spiders. At the shrines of the Golden Masks, the Skull Spiders attack. While the Protectors hold off the Skull Spiders, the Toa claim their Golden Masks, and use the masks' power to defeat the Skull Spiders.

Ekimu sends a vision to Tahu through his Golden Mask of Fire, imploring him to come to the ancient City of the Mask Makers. The six Toa meet outside the city, and Tahu and Kopaka argue over which of them should lead the team. Their argument is interrupted by the approach of the Lord of Skull Spiders. Several of the Toa attempt to defeat him on their own, but fail. Onua suggests they work together, and by coordinating their attacks, the Toa are easily able to defeat the Lord of Skull Spiders. In a vision, Ekimu congratulates the Toa, and urges them to find and awaken him. The Toa proceed into the ruined city, unaware of the Skull Creatures lurking within.

Season 2

The Toa enter into the City of the Mask Makers, but Tahu steps on a trap, blocking their way. Tahu and Kopaka begin to argue again about the leadership of the team, but Onua stop them. Lewa goes off alone to explore the surroundings, and the Toa are ambushed by Skull Warriors. Onua uses his Earthquake Hammer to bury some of the Skull Warrior, but breaks down the bridge access to the City in the process, leaving them without a way out. Lewa returns from scouting, knocking the Skull Warrior archers from their vantage point and allowing the rest of the Toa to beat the Warriors on the ground. Pohatu throws a boulder and breaks the locked gateway, and the Toa continue onward. Lewa mentions an arena he saw and suggests the Toa investigate it, but Kopaka rejects Lewa's idea. Lewa flies to the arena while the other Toa follow Kopaka's orders. As Lewa inspects a series of carvings depicting Hammer Flush, an ancient arena game, Skull Slicer ambushes Lewa and steals his Golden Mask. The other Toa find Lewa's unconscious body and catch sight of Skull Slicer brandishing his mask. The Toa follow Skull Slicer into the Arena, where they witness him don Lewa's golden mask and begin to drain it of energy. Pohatu explains that there is a link between the Masters and their masks, which is the energy the Skull Creatures are after. A barely conscious Lewa informs the Toa that to win the game, they need to hit a lever. Kopaka, Tahu, and Pohatu defend Onua as he smashes the lever and dispatches Skull Slicer. However, the damage done by Onua collapses the arena. Trapped underneath the rubble of the destroyed Arena, the Toa reflect upon their mission and what led them to Okoto. After remembering the way the Protectors guided them in their task, the Toa find a renewed sense of purpose in saving the island. Lewa detects a breeze nearby, indicating that there is a tunnel they can use, and Onua destroys the rocks pinning them down.

The Toa emerge from the underground tunnel into a graveyard, and begin searching for Ekimu's tomb. Lewa notices a large mausoleum emblazoned with the Mask of Creation, and the Toa head for it. Tahu steps on a bone, alerting their presence to a pair of Skull Scorpios, who steal Pohatu's mask and defeat Gali, Tahu, and Onua. Pursuing Lewa, the Scorpios hesitate briefly at the entrance to Ekimu's tomb, but press on.
