Marendar is a living weapon created by the Great Beings to eliminate Toa.


Wary of the threat the Toa could pose to the inhabitants of Spherus Magna if they came into conflict, the Great Beings created a living weapon to hunt down and destroy Toa. They named it Marendar, after an Agori word meaning "salvation."[TYQ, Ch. 1] Marendar was placed in a vault beneath Bara Magna[2] to be released if the Toa went rogue.[OGDi: Aug 11 2010, 05:14 PM]

After 100,000 years, Mata Nui reformed Spherus Magna, and dozens of Toa emerged onto the planet. Detecting an influx of Toa Power, Marendar activated and smashed through the wall of its vault.[TYQ, Ch. 1]

Abilities and Traits

Marendar is a sapient,[3] humanoid,[4] biomechanical being.[5] It is somewhat bigger than a Toa or a Glatorian.[5]

Marendar tracks Toa by detecting their Toa Power[1] and has a natural resistance to elemental powers.[OGQ: Nov 24 2010, 11:13 PM] The Great Beings believed that no Toa team could stand against it.[TYQ, Ch. 1]

  1. Greg Farshtey provided this pronunciation on the BZPower forums, where the slang term "mah" was filtered to its standard form "my."[OGDi] As such, the pronunciation was erroneously listed as "my-renn-DARR." It is unclear whether the original syllable was intended as "MAH" or "mah" as it seems BZPower's software filtered both strings to an all-lowercase "my."
