"His mask was the most ornate anyone had ever seen – more than just a Kanohi, it was a true work of art. The metallic protodermis from which it was forged was arranged in intricate patterns and designs, each reflecting one of the many cultures that flourished in the universe. The eye slits were angular and pointed, giving him an air of both wisdom and a vague sense of menace."
— Narrator, Reign of Shadows

The Legendary Mask of Creation is a Kanohi under ownership of Artakha and one of the three most powerful Kanohi in the Matoran Universe.[1] The mask is carved in various designs to reflect the variety of cultures that exist in the Matoran Universe.[RoS, Ch. 10]


The Mask of Creation was forged by the Great Beings, including Heremus.[2] The mask was fought over by two of their earliest creations, Artakha and Karzahni.[3] Artakha won the competition and claimed the mask, and it has since helped him design many of his creations.[4]


The Mask of Creation allows its user to imagine a completed product from raw materials and learn how to construct it. It can also create an object if the user is already aware of how that object can be made. However, the mask cannot create living things.[1]

The Mask of Creation is one of the three most powerful Kanohi in existence. As such, if the Mask of Creation is destroyed while inside the Matoran Universe, the beings within would lose the ability to create new things.[1] It is impossible to create a Great, Noble, or Matoran version of the Mask of Creation, as a weaker mask would not be able to contain the power within itself.[citation needed]

The Kanohi Vahi, Kanohi Ignika and Mask of Creation are of the same power level because Time, Life and Creation are equal fundamental forces of the Matoran Universe.[4]



  • Only the Great Beings know how to make another Mask of Creation.[citation needed]
