Harnessing and releasing energy from Kanoka
"Eliminator" is a Dark Hunter responsible for executing incompetent Dark Hunters.
1,001 years ago, Makuta Teridax hired Eliminator, Nidhiki, and Krekka to serve him in Metru Nui. Under the disguise of Turaga Dume, Teridax sent members of the Toa Mangai out on missions outside of the island metropolis, where Eliminator would kill them.[DH] One of these false missions included two Toa Mangai and the Chronicler, Kodan, who were sent to close the coastal gates. Eliminator killed these three. At another sea gate, he killed the Toa Mangai of Earth and left his Kanohi Kakama behind. All told, Eliminator killed eight of the Toa Mangai, plus Kodan.[citation needed: BE?]
Eliminator was later assigned to be insurance in the event of another Dark Hunter failing their mission. Were the Dark Hunter unable to complete their mission, Eliminator's purpose was to hunt and kill the Dark Hunter, then take over the mission and carry it out to its conclusion. Wary that the other Dark Hunters might make an attempt on Eliminator's life, the Shadowed One kept Eliminator far away from Odina.[DH]
Abilities and Traits
Eliminator possesses great speed and agility. He also has the natural ability to attract shadows to his body, making him nearly impossible to see in low-light conditions.
As a result of his morbid task, he is despised by other Dark Hunters.[DH]
Eliminator carries four Kanoka on his back, which he can throw if he wishes. He can also combine and harness their powers, unleashing the resulting energy in Lightning-like blasts from his razor-sharp claws.[DH] Due to the nature of these attacks, the artificial intelligence of a biomechanical being killed by it would be damaged beyond repair, and would be unable to be revived in the Red Star.
- Eliminator was created by Rob Drabkowski, for the LEGO Magazine Dark Hunter Building Contest, and was given a storyline role and place in the book BIONICLE: Dark Hunters, by Greg Farshtey.
- Although it appears that Eliminator is wearing a Krana, it is actually the features of his face.
