The Disk Launcher is a tool that was commonly used by the Matoran of Metru Nui to launch Kanoka Disks. Almost all the Matoran in Metru Nui carried a Disk Launcher and a Kanoka with them either for protection or use in sports (like Akilini). The robotic enforcers of Metru Nui, the Vahki, also had Disk Launchers, which were built into their headpiece. When the Toa Metru left Metru Nui, the launchers were left behind.

Large boats crafted on the island of Stelt have Disk Launchers built into them as defensive weapons.

Vakama's Disk Launcher

As a Toa Metru, Vakama carried a specialized Disk Launcher as his Toa Tool. He selected it because the familiar weapon gave him a sense of comfort in his new body. Some of the other Toa, particularly Matau, ridiculed him for choosing an oversized Matoran weapon, but it proved its worth in its versatility.

It could have been used to channel his Fire powers, but he rarely did so, as he preferred to manifest his power in other ways. It was also used as a jetpack that was triggered by his thoughts.

The Disk Launcher was mutated into a pair of Blazer Claws when Vakama became a Toa Hordika, but was transformed back into its original form when Vakama was cured by Keetongu. It was later damaged beyond repair by the Shadowed One during Battle for the Kanohi Vahi, and was replaced with the Firestaff Vakama brought with him from Metru Nui.

Example Usage

In Toa Metru!, Nuhrii used his disk launcher to fire an enlarging Kanoka at a Morbuzakh holding Vakama hostage. The Morbuzakh was unable to adjust to its new size, and released the Toa.

Vakama used his Disk Launcher to launch Freeze Kanoka at the Morbuzakh. He also used its jetpack function to escape from a squad of Vahki.

Set Information

Silver Disk Launchers could be found in the six Matoran, six Vahki, Toa Vakama, Krekka, Nidhiki and promotional Ultimate Dume sets of 2004. In these sets, the Disk Launchers are plastic pieces with a bendable plastic extension at the back edge of two forks that hold the disk. In order to launch the Kanoka disk, the launcher is squeezed on its sides. One Disk Launcher is included in every Kanoka pack, in one of the six colors of the Toa Metru. The Vahki and Nidhiki sets featured Disk Launchers specially designed as a component of their heads. The Toa Vakama set featured a Disk Launcher with flame decorations on either side. It could attach to pins on his back either for storage or as a jetpack.
