"Tahu looked around the villagers. His head held many questions, but no memory of who he was or what he was capable of."
— Narrator, The Arrival
|Mask||Mask 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.
