Lava Apes are ape-like Rahi that resided on the Southern Continent.


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

Many Lava Apes took up residence on the Southern Continent. Several of these Lava Apes were borne along with the island of Voya Nui when it broke off of the mainland during the Great Cataclysm. The Lava Apes resided on the island, especially the Cape of No Hope, for 1,000 years. However, when the Toa Mahri destroyed the Cord and returned Voya Nui to its former position on the Southern Continent, these Lava Apes may not have survived the descent.[3]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Lava Apes left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[1]


  • In the Voya Nui Online Game, the bridge to the Matoran Village was blocked by a Lava Ape. It had to be diverted in order to pass over the bridge; it can be killed, but the bridge then becomes impassable without the use of cheat codes. Other Lava Apes appeared on the northern tip of the island, near the Cape of No Hope, with a health of around 600.
