"He felt powerful tentacles wrap around his arms and legs. Despite his own great strength, he found himself being dragged away from the Barraki, helpless in the grip of a gigantic squid."

The Giant Squid are large, squid-like Rahi.[1]

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

1,000 years ago, when the Great Cataclysm caused the shattering of the Pit and released its inmates into the Black Water above, Barraki Kalmah discovered the Giant Squid. After asserting himself as a dominant creature, he trained and integrated them into his personal army.

Some time before the Ignika sank into the ocean, a Giant Squid dragged a hydruka guard, Reysa, off and killed him.[3][4]

At Kalmah's behest, a Giant Squid dragged Brutaka down into the Black Water,[5] although he managed to kill it.[6] Several Giant Squid were used to guard the exits of the underwater caves where Toa Mahri Nuparu and Hahli were held captive by the Barraki, shortly after the Toa Mahri ran into them.[7]

Giant Squid also participated in the Barraki-led attack on the Toa Mahri after the destruction of the Cord.[8]

The Barraki were later recaptured by Hydraxon, and as such, the Giant Squid were released from service.[citation needed]
