The Husi are large ostrich-like Rahi found in arid regions.


The Husi species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[3]

On Metru Nui, the Husi once roamed free on the rocky crags of Po-Metru before being hunted almost to extinction by the Muaka and other predators, so they were placed in the Archives for their own protection.[2][4]

After the Great Cataclysm, these Husi escaped captivity and fled to the island of Mata Nui, where they took up residence in the rocky crags of Po-Wahi. Though they could be dangerous due to their swift, lethal pecking, the Husi were often tamed by Po-Matoran. They were commonly traded at bazaars and markets in Po-Koro in exchange for goods and services.[5][6] Hapaka were trained and used to protect the Mahi herds and Husi flocks at these markets.[7]

When the Bohrok swarms were awakened, native Husi flocks had to compete for food with herds of Vako and Fusa, which were displaced by the deforestation of the Le-Wahi jungle.[8]

When the Po-Matoran returned to Metru Nui, they brought their tamed Husi with them. Any remaining wild Husi migrated back to Metru Nui when the Toa Nuva intentionally unleashed the Bohrok.[9]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Husi emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

The Husi are noted for their dangerous habit of pecking their foes.[5] A variation of Husi could be found in Ta-Wahi, adapted to be able to run on lava.[10]

Set Information

The Husi was released as part of the 10023 BIONICLE Master Builder Set. Turning the gear on the back caused the head to bend down.


  • According to Issue 2 of Nintendo Power Advance, the Ta-Wahi variant of Husi are known as "Lava Skimmers".
  • Although Husi do not appear in any capacity in Voya Nui Online Game, the game's tasks menu misidentifies Hikaki as Husi in Chapter 5.
