Makuta is the powerful enemy of the Toa Nuva, who schemes to keep Mata Nui asleep forever. Using his power of darkness, he turns friends into enemies and tries to rob the Matoran of their three values: unity, duty and destiny. Use the gear on his back to make Makuta turn from side to side. Includes the all-new Kanohi Kraahkan, the Mask of Shadows. Combine with #8596 Takanuva to build the mighty Takutanuva!
This set of Makuta featured red and blue eyes, but all promotional and box art depicted him with either red or blue eyes (the box itself depicted him with the former). However, in the movies, all subsequent years and sets, his eyes were retconned to pure red.
"Makuta" was Teridax's official name until Greg Farshtey decided to make it the name of the species.
Teridax's counterpart in the 2015-2016 line is known simply as Makuta.
Teridax is also the main antagonist of the entire Bionicle theme and subthemes.
