"It's a smart creature. Catching it means you have to be even smarter. The fact that so many are still running around loose in Metru Nui tells you that I'm not smarter ... yet."

Artakha Bulls are powerful and intelligent bovine Rahi shrouded in myth and legend.
A population of Bulls established themselves in Le-Metru on Metru Nui. They are one of the oldest kinds of Rahi known to the Matoran of Metru Nui; the Archives have recorded appearances of them on the island city over two thousand years prior to the Great Cataclysm.[RB, p. 9]
Abilities and Traits
Legend has it that the Bulls had intelligence far beyond anything the Matoran could hope to achieve, and so they were the only creatures allowed by Mata Nui to enter Artakha along with the Matoran. Another legend states that the Artakha Bulls were actually on Metru Nui long before Matoran populated it.[RB]
Artakha Bulls are very strong, very swift, and excellent trackers. They are extremely hostile and bad-natured. Some Artakha Bulls carry spear-like tools.
- The map dug by the Blade Burrowers underneath Metru Nui was guarded by a bull-like Rahi, thought to be either an Artakha Bull or a mutated Kane-Ra.
- The Artakha Bull was an entry sent in to The LEGO Group as part of the LEGO Magazine Rahi-Building Contest. It was created by Bryan Chow and was given a name and story role by Greg Farshtey in the book BIONICLE: Rahi Beasts.
