"The Manutri are flightless birds who spend some of their time on the ice ring around Voya Nui, and most of the rest of it diving for prey in the cold sea. Altered and trained by Karzahni, they have been turned into a fighting force by him. He has outfitted them with squid launchers and Cordak blasters scavenged from the Barraki weapons caves and plans to unleash them on Toa and Barraki alike!"

Manutri are flightless Rahi birds.
The Manutri species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[MGttU, p. 63] A population of Manutri made its home on the Southern Continent.
When the Great Cataclysm tore Voya Nui from the Southern Continent and sent it to the surface of Aqua Magna, several Manutri survived the voyage and continued to live on the newly-formed island. For 1,000 years, the Manutri lived in the Ring of Ice around the island and would spend most of their time fishing.
Abilities and Traits
Despite possessing wings, the Manutri are incapable of flight, and spend their time on the ground.
The Manutri can be built out of 8913 Toa Nuparu, 8915 Toa Matoro, 8918 Carapar, and 8919 Mantax. Instructions could be found exclusively in the November–December 2007 issue of LEGO BrickMaster Magazine. A Cordak Blaster is mounted on each shoulder, and a Squid Launcher is mounted on the Rahi's back. There are two clips near its Squid Launcher to hold squid ammo. The Manutri was created by Daniel Lipkowitz.
