"Deprived of their usual hunting method, they seem lost and confused. It's only a matter of time before hunger makes them desperate, and desperate Rahi make mistakes."

Chute Lurkers are amphibious, omnivorous Rahi.


The Chute Lurker species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[2]

When the Chute System of Metru Nui was damaged by the Great Cataclysm, Chute Lurkers were forced to abandon their normal hunting ground due to a lack of food. Once emerged, these creatures became targets of the Visorak.[3]

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

Abilities and Traits

Chute Lurkers are capable of breathing Liquid Protodermis, and, though they can breathe air just as easily, they usually avoid being outside of the Chutes more than necessary.[4]

Chute Lurkers hunt by anchoring themselves at a location inside a Chute with their arms (preferably at a sharp curve, where a traveler is less likely to spot them ahead of time), and they wait for something to pass close enough (such as another Rahi or Matoran) so they can grab it. Once caught by a Chute Lurker, there is rarely any chance of escape, unless aided by another.[3]

Chute Lurkers possess Rhotuka launchers, but their Rhotuka power is unknown.[5]

Set Information

The Chute Lurker can be built out of Visorak sets 8745 Roporak and 8746 Keelerak using instructions divided between the instruction manuals of the two sets. Its back features a Rhotuka Launcher that fires a silver Rhotuka spinner. Pressing down on its head causes its mandibles to pinch together.
