The Makuta Fish are fast and cunning aquatic Rahi.


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

These fish made their homes in the Silver Sea surrounding Metru Nui. After the Great Cataclysm, some migrated through the Great Barrier to the waters of Aqua Magna above, surrounding the newly-created island of Mata Nui.[4]

During the Toa Metru's journey to Mata Nui, one specimen flopped aboard their boat and displayed its vicious temperament. Matau gave the Makuta Fish its name, claiming that the Rahi's face reminded him of Makuta Teridax's features. The name has stuck ever since the incident. Nokama then cleaned that particular Makuta Fish and used its bones to create her Trident, which she now uses as her Badge of Office.[5]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Makuta Fish within the Matoran Universe immigrated to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

Makuta Fish have rows and rows of razor-sharp teeth in their mouth. Although any one is powerful enough to survive on its own, they prefer to swim in a school. Together, there is little that can stop them. They have even been known to sometimes attempt to attack swimming Matoran.[4]
