Niazesk are minuscule insect-like Rahi.


The Niazesk species was created by Makuta Bitil[3] using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe. The other Makuta spread them all across the Matoran Universe in order to keep larger Rahi under control.[4]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Niazesk left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[1]

Mutated Niazesk

Mutran took several of these Rahi to Karda Nui when the Makuta invaded it. They were mutated by the swamp water in the Swamp of Secrets.[4]

A group of Niazesk spotted Takanuva, Gali, and Pohatu flying through the swamp, and went to attack them. These Niazesk were defeated by Takanuva's Shadow blasts.[4][5][6][7]

All Niazesk in Karda Nui were killed when the Energy Storms struck.

Abilities and Traits

The Niazesk have the task of keeping larger Rahi in check by using their venomous bites and stings.

The mutated Niazesk were enlarged several times their original size, and had their venom strengthened. After being mutated, they were roughly seven feet (2.1 meters) tall.[5]

Set Information

A Niazesk can be built out of parts from 8687 Toa Pohatu, 8692 Vamprah, and 8697 Toa Ignika. Instructions to build it were included in the May–June 2008 issue of LEGO Brickmaster magazine.
