Other Kanohi are Kanohi about which little is known, such as their appearance, known users, or examples of their powers.

Mask of Adaptation

The Mask of Adaptation

The Mask of Adaptation[note 1] is a Kanohi that adapts its user's body to their environment, identical in function to Kraata of Adaptation.[1] The mask senses the nearby environment, and will alter them immediately if it senses a need for change. However, if the mask is knocked off while the user is altered, then they are permanently stuck in that form.[note 2][note 3]

Mask of Aging

The Mask of Aging

The Mask of Aging[note 1] is a Kanohi that allows its user to slightly accelerate the life processes of one or more targets to make them slower and weaker.

Toa would consider this mask power immoral.[1]

Mask of Biomechanics

The Mask of Biomechanics

The Mask of Biomechanics[note 1] is a Kanohi that allows its user to mentally interface with machinery and control or influence them, depending on range and complexity of the technology. It also gives the user a minor enhancement of their mechanical strength.[1] The user cannot control the mechanical parts of other beings without their consent,[note 2] but can slow them down.

Mask of Conjuring

The Mask of Conjuring

The Mask of Conjuring[note 1] is a Kanohi that allows its user to verbally program a limited power into the mask for a brief period of time. The user must describe in detail the power desired and at least one weakness. If the phrasing is spoken wrong, it causes intense psychic backlash in the user's mind. The user can use a programmed power for fifteen minutes (with a Great version), and after the time is out, the user must wait thirty seconds to activate the mask again. The Noble version will only work for five minutes. Another weakness is because it requires time and speech, any enemies nearby can hear in detail what power to expect and what its weakness is. Because of this, the usage of the mask is more commonly done alone.[1]

Mask of "Freezing"

The "Mask of Freezing"[note 5] is made from Freeze Kanoka and has the same power. It allows its user to freeze objects. It differs from an elemental Mask of Ice in that it does not have access to a full range of Ice powers.[14] It is unknown if such a mask has ever existed.[15]

Mask of Fusion

The Mask of Fusion

The Mask of Fusion[note 1] is a Kanohi that allows its user to forcibly merge themselves with one or more beings into a single larger being. The mask-user will maintain most of the mental control over the fused being. While the Kanohi cannot break apart existing fusions that the user is not part of,[16] it can be used to keep natural fusions stable in the presence of powers that disrupt them. Strong minds can resist the merging, and even a weak mind can interfere with the user's control.[note 2]

If a Mask of Fusion were to be destroyed while two beings are still merged from the power of the mask, the fusion would split up.[17]

Mask of Healing

The Mask of Healing[note 6] is a Kanohi that allows its user to heal others (but not themselves). In order for the Kanohi to work, the user needs to have a basic understanding of the wounds or illnesses that need curing. The speed of the healing depends on the user's willpower and the condition that needs curing. The noble is comparable to a first aid kit, only providing temporary relief to injuries and cannot heal them completely.[21] Just like all healing powers within the Matoran Universe, Masks of Healing cannot be used to heal Spherus Magna natives due to the physiological differences between them and Matoran Universe inhabitants.[22]

Mask of Incomprehension

The Mask of Incomprehension

The Mask of Incomprehension[note 1][note 7] is a Kanohi that allows the user to scramble both spoken and written languages. This mask can be countered by the Kanohi Rau. It cannot affect hand signals.[note 2]

Toa would consider this mask power immoral.[1]

Mask of Rebounding

The Mask of Rebounding

The Mask of Rebounding[note 1] is a Kanohi that allows its user to cause non-exploding or non-fragmenting projectiles to come back to them after the object has been thrown at and hit a target.[1] The mask's power uses a small amount of telekinesis, so the harder the user focuses on the projectile, the more accurate the rebound is.[note 2]

Mask of Reconstitution

The Mask of Reconstitution is made from Reconstitute at Random Kanoka and has the same power.[25] It can mutate any target over a distance.[26][27] The mask can affect both living and non-living targets.[28][29] Unlike the Mask of Mutation, the user has no control over the mutation they cause.[30] It is unknown if such a mask has ever existed.

Toa would consider this mask power immoral.[31]

Mask of Sensory Aptitude

The Mask of Sensory Aptitude

The Mask of Sensory Aptitude[note 1] is a Kanohi that gives its user the power to enhance all five of their senses to a high degree. The user's sense of balance is also increased. The user's enhanced sight is not as good as it would be as if they were wearing a Kanohi Ruru or an Akaku.[1]

  • A "fixed" Matoran on Voya Nui who was enslaved by the Piraka[35]

Mask of Undeath

The Mask of Undeath

The Mask of Undeath[note 1] is a Kanohi that siphons off a fraction of its user's lifeforce from their body, which it infuses the body with after death. The body is then animated by the lifeforce, and attempts to fulfill the last objective the user had while living. If the user's objective is completed before the mask runs out of energy, they will continue living aimlessly until it does run out.[36][37] The mask gives the user no other special power and will slow down their processing, making it harder for them to fight. While undead, the user will lose all illumination in their eyes, making them empty and black. If the mask is removed, any unused lifeforce within the mask dissipates.[38] The Mask of Scavenging cannot be used on an undead being.[39]

Toa would consider this mask power immoral.[1]

Mask of Weather Control

The Mask of Weather Control is a Kanohi that allows the user to control weather and sense weather patterns,[42][43][44] but only for a small area.[45] It is unknown if such a mask has ever existed.

Mask of "Weight Increase"

The "Mask of Weight Increase"[note 5] is a Kanohi made from Increase Weight Kanoka and has the same power. It would allow its user to increase the weight of other beings or objects.[citation needed] It works similarly to a Garai, but it does not have the power to make objects lighter.[46]

Masks of Elemental Powers

Masks of each elemental power extant in the Matoran Universe could be forged from Toa Disks of the respective element.[47][48][49][15] The Kanohi Garai is one such mask, being of the element of Gravity.[50] These masks would each be named after their element.[51] Elemental masks will not boost any preexisting elemental powers the user already have,[52] but would allow a Toa to use their elemental powers without using their own elemental powers,[53] and are able to use the powers independent of their own elemental energy supply.[54] Great elemental masks grant its wearer Toa-level control over their element,[55][56][57] and a Noble would grant Turaga-level control, with about half the intensity of a Great Kanohi.[58][59] They can create their element but not absorb it from the surrounding environment[60][61] or protect the wearer from it.[62] With the exception of the Garai, it is unknown if any of these masks exist or have existed.[63][64]

The Kanohi Avohkii and Kanohi Kraahkan are also elemental masks.[65] While no Toa Disks of Light exist, if one did, it could be forged into a mask that would give the user elemental light powers.[66] Unlike the Avohkii, it would not grant additional powers,[67] but it would still bear the name of Avohkii.[68] Since there are no Toa of Shadow from the core dimension, there are also no Toa Disks of Shadow.

There are no Elemental Masks of Sand because when the Great Beings constructed the Matoran Universe, they decided to exclude Sand as an element.[69][70][71]

Hypothetical Kanohi

Greg Farshtey has surmised that Kanohi may be created with most, but not all, Kraata Powers[72][73][74] and certain emotion-based powers,[75] including:

Additionally, Kanohi with the powers of any Kanoka can be created, including:

  • Mind Scramble[80][81]
  • Remove Poison
  • Weaken - differs from the Kanohi Jutlin, as it cannot make things rot and rust.[82]

Farshtey has stated that there are likely no masks with the power of Acid.[83][84]

Trivia

  • The Mask of Undeath was inspired by Sentrakh's undead state.[85]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 1.8 This mask power was originally part of the fan-based project "Expanded Multiverse" but was adapted and later approved for canon by Greg Farshtey.[1][2]
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 This information was included in the BZPower Expanded Multiverse topic, but was not presented to Greg Farshtey for canonization.
  3. Although it was not presented to Greg Farshtey for canonization, Bonesiii (the original creator of the mask) described it as always being on at a low level, but because Kanohi and the Kraata power that the mask was based on both require concentration to activate,[3][4][5][6][7] this is impossible.
  4. Greg initially said the mask worn by this Matoran was an inorganic Great Elda.[10]
  5. 5.0 5.1 This mask can exist in canon, but does not have an official name.
  6. Initially, Greg Farshtey said a mask of healing is possible.[18][19] Later, this mask was suggested by BS01 user and BIONICLE Story Squad member Erebus. Its powers were based on Toa Hagah Iruini's Rhotuka.[20]
  7. When it was originally canonized, the Mask of Incomprehension was called the Mask of Untranslation[1] but was renamed soon after.[24]
  8. The Matoran shown wearing a Mask of Undeath is not actually undead since Matoran cannot use Kanohi powers. Instead, the mask has a black visor to mimic the appearance of undeath.[41]
