"It is a one-sided battle, of course, that ends with the poor water wraith in the mouth of its foe. Of course, what the larger fish quickly discovers is that the outer shell of a water wraith is coated with deadly poison. The larger fish dies instantly, and the water wraith escapes to feast for months on its very foolish and very dead opponent."
— Makuta Teridax, Into the Darkness
|Known locations||Underwater regions of the Matoran Universe (formerly)|
Water Wraiths are small marine Rahi.
The Water Wraith species was created by Makuta Teridax using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.
After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Water Wraiths were evacuated to Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Water Wraiths are extremely tiny Rahi with a unique and deadly hunting tactic. A Water Wraith will occasionally assault a much larger Rahi, which inevitably defeats the puny creature and gulps the small Rahi into its mouth. However, the Water Wraith's outer shell is coated in poison, which kills its devourer almost instantly. The Water Wraith then emerges and feeds on the dead creature for several months.
- Teridax once likened the Water Wraith's defense mechanism to his infamous plan to gain control of the universe, since both required feigning defeat.
