"A few moments ago, it seemed as if the Toa Inika had won their greatest battle. They had defeated Vezon and Kardas and obtained the Mask of Life. Unfortunately, Kardas tends not to stay defeated for long."

BIONICLE Ignition 6 is the untitled sixth issue of the BIONICLE Ignition series of comic books and the first in its "Sea of Darkness" story arc. The comic book was included alongside the January/February 2007 issue of LEGO Magazine. This issue was listed as Comic 1 in the numbering scheme used on[1]


The situation in the Chamber of Life is briefly summarized as Toa Inika Matoro holds up the Kanohi Ignika proudly, but the mask is blown out of Matoro's grip by a blast from Kardas as it awakes from his defeat. The Toa Inika pursue the mask as it flies out of the chamber and plunges into the sea. Hahli attempts to dive after it, but fails after she runs out of air underwater.

Meanwhile, the Piraka watch in the bushes and decide to strike when the Toa obtain the mask.

Underwater, a Ta-Matoran swims up and saves Hahli from drowning, taking her to the surface. After telling a cryptic message about a city under the sea, the Matoran dies.

At the same time, the mask continues to sink downwards. It is spotted by a Sea Squid, which swims to Kalmah's lair and told him about the news. Kalmah then swims off and notifies the other Barraki: Mantax, Pridak, Carapar, Ehlek, and Takadox, calling a meeting at the Razor Whale's Teeth. The other Barraki leave their other pursuits and assemble there. Pridak explains their situation and that the mask may be the cure to their underwater mutations and may transform them back to their land forms, restoring them to their former glory.

Meanwhile, Dekar finds and holds up the mask, and Pridak declares that the mask shall belong to the Barraki.



  • Because LEGO wanted to release a Barraki poster in January, Ignition 6 never received a physical English print.[2] As a result, this comic was only available in English in The Underwater City and on It was still released as a comic in other countries and in the Chinese book Mahri Nui.
  • In Germany, the comic was featured in the official BIONICLE magazine Issue 25: “Das Geheimnis in der Tiefe!” The title of the magazine and comic translates to “The Secret in the Depths!”[3] although the German titles for the comics and magazines don't always reflect those of their English counterparts.
