Spine Slugs are parasitic Rahi.


The Spine Slug species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.[2] They were later known to inhabit Zakaz, where they established a parasitic relationship with the Skakdi.[3]

The six Piraka carried Spine Slugs on Zakaz.[4]

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Spine Slugs left the Matoran Universe with the Skakdi and immigrated to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

Although Spine Slugs are parasitical, they are harmless to their Skakdi victims. Spine Slugs latch onto the spines of a Skakdi, and seem to be nourished by the Skakdi's battle rage. Some believe that the slugs actually feed that rage, causing the Skakdi to continue fighting and providing more nourishment.[3]
