Roporak are a breed of the spider-like Rahi Visorak.


Matau and Whenua fending off Roporak

Roporak, like all the other Visorak, were created by the Makuta Chirox on an island south of Nynrah that was soon renamed "Visorak", after the spider-like creatures. Their first victims were the indigenous population of the island.[1]

The Roporak were made part of the Brotherhood of Makuta's armies by Gorast[citation needed], and were led by Sidorak and Roodaka, king and viceroy of the Visorak hordes. The hordes conquered a number of islands, mutating native Rahi beasts in the process. At one point, when the Visorak were under the command of Sidorak and Roodaka, several Roporak attempted to rebel against the horde rulers. According to Whenua, their fate made death seem merciful by comparison.[2]

When the Toa Metru returned to Metru Nui, the Roporak waited at the far end of the Moto-Hub when the Keelerak trapped them inside. Onewa locked some Roporak inside a stone dome with his Rhotuka spinners. It was a Roporak that told the other Visorak of Matau and Iruini's location, allowing the spider creatures to trap the two.[3] Roodaka commanded a Roporak to keep watch over Krahka after instructing the Rahi to reveal to the Toa Hordika the identities of the Matoran intended by the stars to become Toa Metru. The same Roporak told Roodaka of Krahka's betrayal.[2]

Later, Vakama, Onewa, and Norik defeated a horde of Roporak when they were trying to save Turaga Dume. At one point, Vakama, Onewa, Norik, and Pouks saw several Roporak web up some Kikanalo and mutate them into fearsome creatures. Angered at the Visorak, Vakama proceeded to attack them all, making the others concerned about Vakama embracing his Hordika side. The Toa also defeated the Roporak and other Visorak in a battle for a tower from which Sidorak was giving commands, imprisoning them in the tower long enough for most to be killed.[2] While the Toa were searching for the Makoki Stone, Nokama had to force her way through several Roporak. The Roporak later participated in the Battle of Metru Nui. After Vakama disbanded the horde, most of the Roporak left Metru Nui for good.[4]

During the war for control of the universe, all the Roporak and the other Visorak were summoned to the island of Artidax by the Heart of the Visorak. As part of a plan by the Order of Mata Nui, a volcanic explosion was triggered after the entire species arrived on the island, killing them.[5]

Teridax recreated the Roporak after gaining control of the Matoran Universe, and they became enforcers of his laws.[6] When the Great Spirit Robot was destroyed and Teridax was killed, the Roporak, along with the rest of the Visorak horde, became wild and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[7]

Abilities and Traits

A Roporak

Roporak are the master spies of the Visorak horde, using their chameleon power to blend in with their surroundings and become virtually invisible. They are also able to stay completely still for hours as they watch their prey. In battle they usually attack over long distances, since their spinners can fly the furthest, using Rhotuka with a disruptor power that drains energy from the target. They also possess Rhotuka which can paralyze its victims, as do all Visorak. Roporak are extremely cautious fighters, preferring to wait until a foe has been weakened by others before striking.

Set Information

The Roporak set

8745 Roporak was released along with the other five Visorak in the spring of 2005 for European countries, and in the fall for North America. It contained 47 pieces, including a Rhotuka and Rhotuka launcher. Parts from the set could be combined with parts from the Keelerak set to make a Chute Lurker, with Suukorak and Boggarak to make a Venom Flyer, and the other five Visorak sets to make the Zivon.

A mini Roporak figure was included in the Battle of Metru Nui, Visorak Battle Ram, Tower of Toa, and Visorak's Gate playsets of 2005, all canon except the last. Blended from black and glow-in-the-dark plastic, it featured mandibles distinct from those of the other mini Visorak pieces. A clip between the mandibles allowed it to attach to Visorak webbing pieces included in all four sets.
