"You cannot defeat me with my own power!"
— Gahlok-Kal, Makuta's Revenge
Gahlok-Kal was originally an Av-Matoran who was destined to transform into a Gahlok. Eventually, it was exposed to a mutagenic substance by the Bahrag, and transformed into Gahlok-Kal. Once the Bohrok Queens fell in battle to the Toa Mata, Gahlok-Kal awoke.
As Pohatu Nuva pursued Pahrak-Kal, who had stolen his symbol, Gahlok-Kal aided its counterpart and used its magnetic shields on the Toa. This left him stranded in the desert with a group of Mahi magnetized to him. It also helped stop the Toa Nuva from finding their Kanohi Nuva, which the Kal had been ordered to do by Tahnok-Kal.
When Wairuha Nuva was formed to combat the Bohrok-Kal, Gahlok-Kal, as well as Kohrak-Kal, were summoned by Lehvak-Kal, and the three merged into the Bohrok-Kal Kaita Ja. The Kaita Ja defeated Wairuha Nuva and left the Toa Nuva helpless as Gahlok-Kal and the others continued their hunt to find and free the Bahrag.
After the Bohrok-Kal found out where the Bahrag were hidden, they journeyed there with the Nuva Symbols. However, they did not realize that the Toa Nuva were following them. Upon arriving, they found the Exo-Toa suits empty, guarding the Bahrag, and began destroying them. Gahlok-Kal was responsible for destroying most of the Exo-Toa armor suits.
The Bohrok-Kal then placed the Nuva Symbols on the Nuva Cube, and their Krana-Kal turned silver in doing so, forming a shield and protecting them from all harm. The Toa Nuva then mentally charged their symbols through their connection with them, and the symbols in turn enhanced the powers of the Bohrok-Kal. Gahlok-Kal's magnetic power caused all of the Exo-Toa parts, strewn about the ground, to fly upward and hit it, eventually crushing the Bohrok-Kal.
Abilities and Traits
Gahlok-Kal was a greedy, self-serving Bohrok-Kal that saw itself as capable of doing anything. Gahlok-Kal was also very silent, stealthy, and able to find a way past any obstacle in its path. It had the power of Magnetism, which allowed it to cause any object to become magnetized or magnetic, and to any level of intensity.
Gahlok-Kal used its Magnetic Shields to channel its Magnetic powers.
8578 Gahlok-Kal was released in early 2003. It contained 40 pieces, one of which was a randomly packed metallic blue Krana-Kal. The Gahlok-Kal set can be combined with a Lehvak-Kal and Kohrak-Kal to create a Bohrok-Kal Kaita Ja.
