Title Mask of Mutation
Powers Permanently mutates target
Bearers Miserix[1]


The Mask of Mutation allows its user to mutate another living being from a distance.[2] The user can also give and take away powers with the mutations.[3][4] However, its user cannot mutate themselves.[5] A mutation caused by the mask is permanent unless it is undone by the mask user.[6] The user has control over how the target is mutated,[7] which includes being able to undo other mutations such as those caused by Hordika Venom, Makuta viruses, and Roodaka's Rhotuka power, but not those caused by Energized Protodermis.[8] In theory, reversing a mutation is more difficult without detailed knowledge of the original mutation.[9] A Noble Mask of Mutation would be weaker in terms of range and duration.[10]

Trivia

  • Because the Mask of Mutation, not the Kanohi Kraahkan, pertained to the original purpose of the Brotherhood, the former was given to Miserix as the organization's head.[11]
  • Although the Mask of Mutation is used by a Makuta, Toa do not consider it to be an immoral mask as Miserix was not a part of the Makuta's rebellion.[12] Despite this, the mask has only been worn by Makuta.[13]
  • Mutran was originally going to wear the "Kanohi Artidax," the Mask of Mutation, but Greg Farshtey dropped the idea upon seeing that Mutran and Chirox shared the same mask in their sets. The name Artidax became an island, and the Mask of Mutation was instead given to Miserix.[14]
