"I cannot stand by and watch something even this repulsive fall to the Visorak ... Bomonga discovered a few Stasis Tubes intact in the Archives, so I am keeping these monsters stored in them, where I hope they will stay forever."

Southern Continent (Voya Nui) (formerly)
Doom Vipers are six-headed serpentine Rahi.
The Matoran of Metru Nui first discovered the Doom Vipers on a cargo ship docked in the Ga-Metru harbors. Ga-Matoran were surprised to discover that the crew was missing, though the cargo was still intact. Only later was it discovered that the crew had all been killed by Doom Vipers; by that time, the vipers had already begun making their way to the heart of Ga-Metru.
Doom Vipers also lived on the Southern Continent and, later, Voya Nui. Brutaka once saved Balta, Piruk, Velika, and Kazi from one out of habit by using his Kanohi Olmak to teleport it into a particularly lethal alternate universe. When the Toa Mahri destroyed the Cord and sent Voya Nui back to its place on the Southern Continent, its Doom Vipers may have not survived the descent.
Abilities and Traits
Aside from its multiple heads, the Doom Viper is most notorious for its breath, which is a toxic compound that is capable of killing any living animal or plant life it touches (except other Doom Vipers). Vahki, being machines and thus immune to the venom, were the only ones successful at capturing these Rahi. Doom Viper breath is also capable of weakening Visorak webbing.
- The Doom Viper was created by Allen Proulx. It was sent in to the LEGO group as part of the LEGO Magazine Rahi-Building Contest. It was given a name and story role by Greg Farshtey in the book BIONICLE: Rahi Beasts.
- Tobduk carries a staff with an end carved in the shape of a Doom Viper's head.[BIA, Ch. 6]
- In Brothers in Arms, Doom Vipers are once referred to as "doom serpents."[BIA, Ch. 6]
