|Bearers||Akilini champions (formerly)|
Copper Masks of Victory are powerless Kanohi with ceremonial value.
Copper Masks of Victory are made of metallic protodermis. Forged in a copper color, they were originally awarded to Akilini champions, who wore them on Metru Nui. The Toa Metru later brought the Kanohi to Mata Nui, where they were awarded to Koro entertainment champions. The masks were forged in the shapes of Noble Kanohi Huna and Noble Kanohi Komau.
Two Copper Masks of Victory were released in set form: the Noble Huna, and the Noble Komau. These used an exclusive semi-translucent copper color, similar to that of the later released gold and silver masks in 8559 BIONICLE Krana.
Both masks were available through polybag distributions at LEGOLAND Billund and LEGOLAND Windsor. A cardboard insert inside the polybag describes the copper masks as more powerful versions of those Kanohi that can be found in the caverns beneath Mata Nui, though this description is non-canonical.
The copper Huna was additionally available through a variety of means. Posters were given out with BIONICLE purchases at participating Toys "R" Us stores on August 5th, 2001 (erroneously stated to be August 11th in "Deep into Darkness"), which could then be used at the stores on September 8th, 2001 to receive the mask for free. However, at many stores the masks were in practice given out to anyone who purchased a BIONICLE set. The masks were also used as prizes for another in-store Toys "R" Us promotion which challenged contestants to duel one another with Manas' remote control function.
The copper Huna was also among the masks available in a German Nestlé offer in which promotional cereal packs contained one Kanohi mask as a free gift, which reportedly gave a them a similar description to the LEGOLAND polybag, saying that they were several times more powerful than other Kanohi and had disappeared for a long time. The Huna was also handed out at LEGOLAND Windsor as a reward for completing a trivia challenge in the park's "clubhouse".
In September 2003, Blockbuster Video offered Toa Nuva sets with copper Huna included with them as part of a promotion for Mask of Light. In some stores, these masks were still available as late as May 2004.
The translucency of the Huna masks varied between releases, with the standalone Huna being noticeably more translucent.
- Copper Masks of Victory can be worn, but Matoran use them exclusively for displaying purposes.
