The Kanohi Shelek is the Mask of Silence. It allows its user to simultaneously disable a target's ability to speak and hear for as long as the user concentrates.[2][3] The mask cannot rob either speech or hearing; it has to do both.[4]

Example Usage

Chirox used his Kanohi Shelek in The Final Battle to temporarily deafen and mute Takanuva so that he and Bitil could ambush him.

Trivia

  • Toa would not normally wear this mask, due to its association with Makuta.[7]
  • The advantage that Makuta Chirox had for wearing a Shelek while already having access to Silence as a Makuta power was so that he could use two Makuta powers at once,[8][9] which Makuta cannot naturally do.[10]
