|Outside/alternate title||Unleash the Rahkshi!|
"Rise of the Rahkshi!", also known by its title text "Unleash the Rahkshi!", is issue #13 of the BIONICLE series. Issues of the comic were included in the July/August 2003 LEGO Magazine.
Teridax has returned, and hears of the discovery of the Mask of Light. Hoping to kill the herald and take the Kanohi to stop the coming of the Seventh Toa, he releases and introduces the Rahkshi Lerahk, Panrahk, and Guurahk. The three Rahkshi attack Tahu and Gali, who are trying to stop them from getting to Po-Koro, as Tahu plans to defeat the Rahkshi. Lerahk attacks Tahu, but misses, and Guurahk creates a hole in the ground that Gali falls into but manages to grab a hold of the edge. Just before Guurahk hits Gali again, Lewa knocks it out of the way, only for the vine he is swinging on to be snapped by Guurahk.
Lerahk then uses his poison to trap the Toa into a corner, then all three Rahkshi bring the cliff side down, which buries the Toa Nuva in rubble. The Rahkshi then continue towards Po-Koro.
Teridax then releases his other three Rahkshi, Turahk, Kurahk, and Vorahk.
Explaining the nature of Kraata, Turaga Whenua shows Pohatu and Onua a cave in Po-Wahi where the Turaga have secretly kept thousands of Kraata in suspended animation. Suddenly the Rahkshi arrive, and cause a cave-in. The Toa and Turaga avoid the rubble, but the blast cracks open the Kraata containers, freeing them.
At the same time, Kopaka arrives near Po-Koro, where the Toa had planned to have a meeting, when all six Rahkshi corner him.
