"It was an awesome sight. Ships flying the banner of the Brotherhood of Makuta ringed the island-city, flying Rahkshi were assaulting from every direction, firing bolts of energy from their staffs while others pounded on the walls. In one section, a portion of the wall had already crumbled, and warriors fought in the gap, trying to keep the invaders out."

Brotherhood of Makuta

  • Defeat the Order of Mata Nui.
  • Seize Metru Nui.


The Order of Mata Nui leaked information through agents on Stelt that they were turning the Great Furnace of Ta-Metru into a Virus works as an excuse to fortify the city. Soon after they had finished constructing their defenses, the city was raided by the Dark Hunter Voporak, and the Kanohi Vahi was stolen in the process.

Not long after Voporak departed, the island was attacked by the war fleets of the Brotherhood of Makuta, along with massive amounts of Rahkshi. As the Brotherhood invaded, the agents of the Order and Toa Mahri Hewkii and Kongu fought off the invading forces, assisted by Matoran manning the constructed defenses. However, the Rahkshi slowly overcame the city's security, and breached the walls through the hole made by Voporak.

Jaller, Hahli, and Nuparu soon arrived, and helped drive the Rahkshi back, although with little overall effect. Under the advice of Turaga Vakama, they sought out Toa Krakua, and had him replicate the sonic signal used to summon the Bohrok. A small amount of Bohrok, residing in the Archives, broke through the surface of Ta-Metru, and began to battle the Rahkshi. Around this moment, the body of the Great Spirit Mata Nui awoke, but with the mind and consciousness of Makuta Teridax. Using his new powers, Teridax created a storm in the Silver Sea, causing waves which tossed the fleet about.

The Brotherhood forces continued to invade the city, but lost their advantage as the Toa Nuva arrived, using their vehicles, Rockoh T3, Jetrax T6, and Axalara T9 to eliminate the Brotherhood's fleet. With the arrival of the Toa Nuva, the morale of the defenders of the city was boosted, and they finally defeated the Brotherhood.


The Turaga declared a city-wide celebration was to be held in the Coliseum the next day, due to the victory of the battle and the awakening of the Great Spirit Mata Nui. Teridax revealed himself to be controlling Mata Nui's body at this time.
