"But nothing before could equal Onua Nuva seizing her, lifting her high into the air, and slamming her down with every bit of force his own power and the Mask of Strength could afford him. Even for the raw might of a Makuta, the world spun."
— Narrator, Swamp of Secrets

The Pakari Nuva is the Kanohi Nuva Mask of Strength, created when a destined Kanohi Pakari is dipped in Energized Protodermis. It grants its user and those nearby the maximum amount of strength their muscles can withstand.[C8, p. 19] The only beings able to use this mask are Toa Nuva.

Onua shares his mask power with Tahu and Lewa.
