Mahi are small goat-like Rahi.
After the Great Cataclysm, the population of Mahi in Metru Nui migrated with the Matoran to the island of Mata Nui. On Mata Nui, flocks of Mahi were mostly found in Po-Wahi, though a breed of purple Mahi made their homes in Le-Wahi and Ta-Wahi, while red Mahi roamed the snowy fields of Ko-Wahi. The Po-Matoran of Po-Koro recognized the Mahi as useful livestock and domesticated them to pull carts. Because of their high value, they were often traded at the Po-Koro Market.[MNOG, Ch. 4] Hapaka were also trained to guard Mahi flocks.[LEGO Club] Herding them was challenging, but it was a way of learning the skill of Strategy. Golyo herded Mahi in a small pen on the outskirts of Po-Koro.[MNOG2, Ch. 6]
When the Bohrok-Kal attacked Mata Nui, Gahlok-Kal magnetized several Mahi to Toa Nuva Pohatu, successfully incapacitating him. They were removed by Takua and Jaller during the Toa Nuva's mission to track down and confront the Bohrok-Kal. During the Kolhii Tournament, the Ga-Matoran Hahli visited Golyo and trained in Strategy by catching escaping Mahi.[MNOG2, Ch. 6]
Fire Mahi are a subspecies of the Mahi which lived in Ta-Wahi. 1,000 years into the Great War, a group of Fire Mahi, under the influence of Teridax, abducted Turaga Vakama. Takua defeated these Rahi and obtained the key to Vakama's prison.
Abilities and Traits
Wild Mahi live alone or in herds. Variants are especially equipped for tropical, cold, and volcanic environments. They tend to be territorial, quickly charging down anything that approaches and then ramming them with their dangerous horns. Despite this, Mahi can be domesticated by Matoran, making them useful livestock.[MNOG, Ch. 4]
- Mahi were originally called "Maha" in early media.[MNOG, Ch. 4][LEGO Club] They were later renamed "Mahi."[MNOG2, Ch. 6]
- In Matoran, the word "mahi" means "goat."
