Archives Moles are small subterranean Rahi.


The Archives Mole species was created by the Makuta using viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[2]

Originally living in Po-Metru, the Archives Moles were forced to flee due to the increase of Assembler's Villages. A great number of the population fled to the shadowy corners of the Archives and fed on small Rahi insects and Protodites. Due to their personality and their size, the Archives Moles had to focus on cooperation instead of fighting back to predators. They are proficient at this, forming ladders and bridges of themselves to help others of their species through the more treacherous areas of the Archives.[3]

When the Visorak arrived in Metru Nui, the Archives Moles followed their own instincts to run and hide. They fled to areas in which the Visorak could not fit, such as small cracks between buildings, and remained there motionless. The Visorak would either leave, as they thought better of their time than to try at impossible prey, or spin thick webs blocking the only way out, thereby sealing the Archives Moles within. As a Rahaga, Bomonga always looked out for stray Visorak webbing in the Archives, as they commonly marked one of the Archives Moles' hiding spots.[3]

After the Great Cataclysm, the Archives Moles traveled to Mata Nui and settled in Le-Wahi for 1,000 years.[4] When the Matoran moved back to Metru Nui, the Archives Moles followed.[5]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Archives Moles emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]
