Rahi
Matoran carvings representing Rahi

Rahi are biomechanical creatures composed of organic and inorganic Protodermis that serve as the fauna of the Matoran Universe. The term "Rahi" literally translates to "not us" in the Matoran language although it is more commonly translated to "wildlife." Rahi are generally considered to have lower intellects than the Sapient Species of the universe, acting primarily on instinct and out of a desire for basic needs such as food and shelter. They contain very little inner Light: enough to be drained but not enough to have an effect on their judgment.

Toa Mata Lewa and Kopaka battled infected Rahi on the island of Mata Nui

Some Rahi are able to wear powerless Kanohi, which can be infected by Kraata in order to subject the wearer to a Makuta's influence. Rahi may also be controlled by beings with the power of Rahi Control or by users of the Mask of Rahi Control.

Most Rahi were created by the Makuta in a process that involved blending various Viruses in vats of Liquid Protodermis. Later, as the Brotherhood of Makuta grew corrupt, the Makuta began to create Rahi for the organization's own use. A few Rahi that were created by the Great Beings or other, earlier factions such as the Hand of Artakha preyed upon Makuta. Other species of Rahi are the result of factors such as Energized Protodermis acting on pre-existing Rahi, sapient beings, or the environment.

Many Rahi immigrated to the planet of Spherus Magna after the Matoran Universe was rendered inoperable.
