Nuhvok-Kal was the Bohrok-Kal of Gravity.


Nuhvok-Kal was originally an Av-Matoran who was destined to transform into a Nuhvok. Eventually, it was exposed to a mutagenic substance by the Bahrag, transforming it into Nuhvok-Kal.

When the Bahrag were trapped inside the Toa Mata's Protodermis prison, Nuhvok-Kal, along with the other five Bohrok-Kal were awakened to free the Bahrag. Nuhvok-Kal helped Kohrak-Kal steal Kopaka Nuva's Nuva Symbol, rendering him helpless in a canyon. Later, somewhere within the jungles of Le-Koro, Tahu and Lewa severely weakened Nuhvok-Kal by enlisting several Le-Matoran to throw things at it from all sides, forcing it to spin around in rapid circles to neutralize all the attacks.

Tahu Nuva tried to use a swarm of Tahnok to attack Nuhvok-Kal, but failed. Nuhvok-Kal used its power over gravity to cause the Tahnok to fly into orbit. Then, it used its powers to increase the gravity on Tahu, leaving him helpless.

The Bohrok-Kal later found the location of the Bahrag, as well as the cube-shaped seal to fit the symbols on, but it was guarded by several Exo-Toa which attacked the Bohrok-Kal. Nuhvok-Kal helped the others by using its powers to take them down. Then they proceeded to the cube and began to put the symbols together. During that process, the Krana-Kal turned into a silver color, protecting Nuhvok-Kal and the others from outside harm. Nuhvok-Kal was then defeated along with the other Bohrok-Kal when the Nuva Symbol fed it more power than it could handle, causing its gravity power to overload and make a miniature black hole that destroyed it.

Abilities and Traits

Nuhvok-Kal saw it as a waste of time to worry about hindering its enemies, such as the Toa Nuva, instead of actively searching out the Bahrag as per its mission. It resented having to follow Tahnok-Kal's decision to seek out the Kanohi Nuva to stop the Toa from finding them. It had an aversion to forests, since there were many places for an enemy to hide.

Nuhvok-Kal was a powerful and slow-moving Bohrok-Kal. It had the power of Gravity, which allowed it to increase or decrease gravity of its opponents.
