"Roodaka watched with amusement as Nidhiki tried to master his new body. He was stumbling about on the sand, trying to move like a Toa but a prisoner of the monstrous form her mutation spinner had given him."
— Narrator, Birth of a Dark Hunter

Mutation is a power that changes the molecular structure of a target. Mutagens only cause physical change and also effect non-living objects[1][2] but cannot change one's destiny.[3] Beings with a mutation power cannot mutate themselves.[4][5][6] In some cases, mutations can also cause fusions of two or more beings.

Users

  • Any wearer of a Mask of Mutation - Can control how their target is mutated,[7] including giving and taking powers,[8][9] but cannot change the target's element.[10]
  • Energized Protodermis - Mutates beings that are destined to be, but cannot undo previous mutations.[11]
  • Pit Mutagen - Mutations are random[12][13] and not instantaneous.[14]
  • Reconstitute at Random Kanoka - Causes temporary, random[15] mutations in its target.
  • Roodaka - Able to mutate targets with her Rhotuka spinner. Controls what her targets mutate into.[16] Mutations are instant and permanent (unless undone).[17][18]
  • Visorak - Has venom that can mutate beings. Can only mutate objects that are closely tied to the being they mutate, such as Kanohi and Toa Tools.[19][20][21][22] Mutations are random[23][24] and not instantaneous.[14] Also causes psychological damage.[25]

Trivia

  • The Bohrok-Kal may have been created using Hordika venom or a variation of that.[34]
  • The Pit Mutagen affects organics, but much more slowly.[35]
  • The Mask of Life can reverse mutations, but not cause them.[36][37][38]
  • The Dark Hunter Tracker has claimed to be either a victim of the Hordika Venom or Roodaka's mutation spinner.[39]
  • Voporak's unique mutation is the result of combining Energized Protodermis, Roodaka's mutation spinner, and other mutagens.[40]
