1,000 years ago, when the Barraki set up their underwater kingdoms and recruited armies of sea creatures, Kalmah discovered the Sea Squid in the cave later referred to as the Octo Cave. Kalmah took it upon himself to breed the creatures in this cave, later forbidding others, including the other Barraki, to enter since Mantax once ate half the brood.[BL7] Kalmah treated them harshly and turned them into vicious killing beasts. He accomplished this by starving his squid more than others, making them more effective killers. He then created the Squid Launchers as a means to use the Sea Squid as weapons, and distributed them to the other Barraki. Sea Squid were used by the Barraki in mass numbers against the giant Venom Eel[BL6] and as scouts by Kalmah.[IC6]
Abilities and Traits
Sea Squid[BEU, p. 126] feed by draining the life force from a being through the suckers on their tentacles and transferring the energy into themselves. They are fast and ruthlessly efficient, therefore they are able to prey on beings much larger than themselves. They reproduce by laying eggs.[BL7]
Sea Squid were used by the Barraki and several other beings in the water surrounding the Pit as weapons.
Sea Squid were featured in various 2007 sets in the form of soft, stretchy translucent rubber. A Sea Squid could be launched from the soft plastic Squid Launcher piece by mounting the squid's head in the front of the launcher while pulling back the tail as demonstrated in the instructions or on an instructional video on BIONICLE.com.
Two yellow-orange Sea Squid were packaged in each Barraki set as well as the Karzahni, Nocturn, and Gadunka sets. Three were featured in the Barraki Deepsea Patrol and Toa Undersea Attack playsets and five in the Toa Terrain Crawler. Excluding the Toa Terrain Crawler and Toa Undersea Attack playsets, each of the above sets featured a Squid Launcher and a pair of clips on which the Sea Squid could be mounted.
8934 Squid Ammo pack was released in 2007. The pack contains seven extra various blends of blue and green colored Sea Squid.
A pair of life-size "Splashy Barraki Squids" (one red, one green) were released together in 2007. These were permeable foam balls that were intended to be soaked with water and thrown as a pool toy. The cloth surface and tail of each squid was printed with a face, the Barraki logo, and the insignia of various Barraki.
- In some European countries, the Sea Squid were marketed as "Polyps."
- Sea Squid are known to be unappetizing.
- Matoran would classify Sea Squid as Rahi, even though they are not.
