Plot Summary

As Kopaka arrives in Po-Wahi, with the intention of meeting with the other Toa Nuva, he finds six Rahkshi, and no Toa. As Lerahk moves to strike Kopaka, he channels Ice through his Ice Blade, freezing the Rahkshi. As Kopaka looks around, he is quickly struck by Turahk's power of fear, causing him to doubt his chances of winning and fear the mockery of the others. However, his will is strong, and he freezes Turahk where he stands. Quickly, Vorahk begins to drain his energy. Soon, Kopaka is overwhelmed, and close to defeat.

Tahu, Gali and Lewa soon arrive, saved from their previous predicament with the Rahkshi by Tahu's mask. As Tahu prepares to jump in and help Kopaka, Gali stops him. Tahu, angered, begins arguing with Gali. Lewa, noticing that Kurahk is using his powers of anger on the two Toa, summons a cyclone and breaks the Rahkshi's concentration. Tahu and Gali, freed from its powers, proceed to fight the Rahkshi. Gali joins Kopaka as Guurahk and Panrahk use their powers to cause a boulder to fall towards the two. While Tahu melts the stone, Lewa uses his power over air to bring them to safety. By this time, the Rahkshi have escaped, continuing their search for Jaller and Takua, Tahu and Lewa join their comrades. Within seconds, however, an explosion rocks the area, as Onua, Pohatu, and Turaga Whenua escape from their sealed tunnel. Tahu and Kopaka proceed to reseal the cave, stopping the Kraata from escaping, except for one Shadow Kraata, which Pohatu seizes. As the Toa regroup, they prepare to continue their confrontation against the Rahkshi, which proceeds to take place all over the island.

Eventually, their battles take them to the Kini-Nui, where they face the threat of the Rahkshi once and for all. As the Rahkshi charge, a blinding light breaks through, to the confusion of the Toa. Before them is the Toa of Light, Takanuva. The Rahkshi fall to the united Toa, and the Toa Nuva build a vehicle out of their parts. Taking the Shadow Kraata and placing it in the vehicle's face plate, Takanuva gets on the vehicle and continues on, alone, to confront Makuta, telling the Toa Nuva to stay behind and gather the Matoran as it is his destiny alone to face Makuta.
