The marking at the entrance to the cave

The Kraata Cave was an expansive cave in Po-Wahi in which the Turaga of Mata Nui stored the Kraata that they had captured.


When Makuta Teridax began his assault on the Matoran of Mata Nui, he created and unleashed numerous Kraata. Over the next thousand years, the Turaga captured these Kraata and gathered them in a cave in Po-Wahi. Here, the Kraata were suspended in time and space with the use of stasis cylinders organized into a grid at one of the walls of the cave. The entrance of the cave featured a carving of a Kraata as a warning to the unwary.

The Kraata escaping from their stasis cylinders

The existence of the cave was revealed to Toa Nuva Pohatu and Onua by Turaga Whenua only after the arrival of Teridax's Rahkshi following the discovery of the Mask of Light. Whenua was concerned that the Makuta's Rahkshi would attempt to free the imprisoned Kraata, a fear which was realized when Guurahk and Panrahk together used their Staffs of Power to compromise the structural integrity of the cave. This shock wave from the resulting cave-in cracked the cylinders and freed the Kraata. The two Toa Nuva and Turaga of Earth managed to escape and the combined efforts of Tahu and Kopaka sealed the exit, trapping the Kraata inside, except one Shadow Kraata which Pohatu caught hold of as it attempted to escape.

When the Bohrok swarms were reawakened, the Kraata Cave and its contents were destroyed.
