"Hard to spot and hard to capture. They know the cables well and can disappear into them in an instant."
Rahaga Iruini, Rahi Beasts

Cable Crawler

The Cable Crawler is a species of climbing Rahi.


The Cable Crawler 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 Crawlers established themselves in the cables overlooking Le-Metru in Metru Nui. Although shy around Matoran, the Cable Crawlers evolved into a pest, due to their tendency to cut the thick power cables into small pieces by using their sharp claws, usually when they are searching for food.

Abilities and Traits

Along with its hunting skills, the Cable Crawler has the ability to unleash waves of energy that can distort balance and cause vertigo. They use this technique while hunting, using it on smaller creatures and on larger creatures, so they may escape while the larger Rahi is confused.

Cable Crawlers are also mostly nocturnal, and can be found in the dark of the night hunting. The Rahi has a habit of nesting in cargo holds of Matoran Airships. This was discovered when an Airship, supposedly carrying a shipment of Rahi, flew to the Archives, but, when it landed, all the Rahi had been eaten by a single Cable Crawler.

Set Information

A Cable Crawler in set form

The Cable Crawler can be built out of parts from the Toa Hordika Vakama and Whenua sets, using instructions divided between the two sets' instruction manuals. Its upper-right arm features a gear that allows one to operate the elbow joint. A Rhotuka Launcher on its back fires a silver Rhotuka spinner.
