The Mask of Emulation is a Kanohi that allows its user to replicate any one power of another sapient being for a short time. To replicate a power, the user must see it in use and then wait for the mask to analyze and duplicate it. [citation needed] The length of the copying process varies by power.[1] The user accesses the copied power as if it were a mask power. The user cannot copy Rahi powers,[citation needed] other Kanohi powers, or weapon powers.[2] If the user deactivates the copied power, they will have to recopy it, though the copying time will become progressively shorter with each time the same power is copied. It does, however, reach a state in which the speed of copying cannot become faster.[3]

Example Usage

In Dwellers In Darkness, Pouks attempted to copy Miserix's power of teleportation, only to have the Makuta recognize his efforts and interrupt the process.[DID, Ch. 7]

Trivia

  • A poll was held on BZPower to name Pouks's mask, based on a selection of possible titles. The winning title was then canonized by BIONICLE book author Greg Farshtey.[4][5]
  • Like all Toa Hagah, Pouks wears a mask forged in the shape of one worn by a past hero. It is unknown if this hero wore a Mask of Emulation or a different one, so Pouks' mask may or may not look like the one pictured.[citation needed]
