Tahu is one of the six destined Toa, foretold in the Prophecy of Heroes, and the Master of Fire.


Tahu and the other Toa were summoned by the Protectors and crash landed on Okoto. Tahu crashed in the Region of Fire and was greeted by the Protector of Fire and his people. Tahu had forgotten his identity, and was confused by his situation. The Protector of Fire informed him of his destiny as foretold by the Prophecy of Heroes, but Tahu insisted that he knew nothing about defeating evil. During the conversation, several Skull Spiders attacked, and Tahu effortlessly defeated them, leaving the watching villagers in awe. The Protector of Fire then prepared for travel and instructed Tahu to follow him.

For weeks, Tahu traveled with the Protector of Fire to Okoto's greatest volcano. Within its crater lay the Golden Mask of Fire, which Tahu recovered while the Protector of Fire fended off several Skull Spiders.

The Golden Mask granted Tahu fire powers, which he used to defeat several Skull Spiders. He then received a message from Ekimu, the Mask Maker, through the Golden Mask, telling him to go to the ancient city.

There, Tahu joined with Kopaka, Gali, Pohatu, Onua, and Lewa, the other Toa, all of whom had found golden masks of their own. Tahu and Kopaka had a brief fight over the leadership of the team, which Onua and Gali broke up. The team was attacked by the Lord of Skull Spiders, whom they defeated. They received another vision from Ekimu and then proceeded into the ancient city.
