Metru Nui Lightvines in the Archives

Lightvines are a type of highly luminescent plant. Its glow is toxic to beings with only moral shadow inside them.[2]


There are three known varieties of Lightvines: one that grew on Mata Nui, one that grew in Metru Nui and another that grew in Karda Nui.

The Mata Nui variant resembled grass and was found growing on the ground of the tunnels of Onu-Wahi.[3][1]

The Metru Nui variant was thin, was colored fluorescent blue or teal, and could be found underground in the Archives.[4][1]

The Karda Nui variant was considerably thicker and covered in thorns. It also had a more greenish color than the Metru Nui species.[5]

As a result of the Great Cataclysm, the Swamp of Secrets was formed from the large amounts of Pit Mutagen seeping into Karda Nui. The Av-Matoran harvested the Lightvines that grew here to assist in the construction of their villages.[6]

A Lightvine surrounded the Sky Village in which the free Av-Matoran resided. It was placed there in order to keep the Makuta away, as the vine's bright glow irritated them. Following the first battle between them and the Toa Nuva, the Makuta used Radiak to lure Pohatu and Photok away from the vine so they could ambush them.[5]

In the Swamp of Secrets, several Av-Matoran, who were about to transform into Bohrok, resided in a small clearing completely surrounded by Lightvines, to keep the Makuta away.[7]
