Bionicle Discussion: Was Tobduk's species destroyed on purpose?

A Forgotten Soul


While Tobduk is a rather cool looking character in the G1 Bionicle story, one of things that's been bugging my mind is was the releasing of the Visorak by Chirox not just a test of their power, but rather a secret note to eliminate his species. From what we know about Tobduk's species is that they are taller than Toa, can use masks like Toa, but their powers are revolved around emotions. Its a cool concept that we can absorb other peoples' anger or fear to make one stronger, but the Makuta have certain creatures in their army that use some of those powers as well. These are of course the Turahk and Kurahk of the Rahkshi species.


Imagine just how overpowered Tobduk can be if he were just fighting only Kurahks and the Rahkshi just kept blasting him with anger beams. The guy would be an absolute juggernaut beside the fact that he can still take damage like any other being. If the Makuta were to invade and take over his island (before it became known as Visorak) the inhabitants probably be able to push the Makuta back since they can absorb emotional energy. Tobduck and any other one of his friends who can absorb anger would be able to completely annihilate the army by taking just a few Kurahk blasts. The island would basically be a stronghold for everyone if they were all still alive and had seen Teridax's Brootherhood fully take over the world.


Remember, the Visorak were created on Tobduk's very island. If Teridax was already scheming during that time line and secretly told Chirox to make them specifically on that island, it would be pretty devious plan indeed. With Tobduk's species out of the way, their be no way for the Matoran Universe to resist as long as it did when Makuta took over. If they were still alive, all of Tobduk's race would've been a valiant ally and great aid to the world in order to defeat Makuta.


What do you think? Was it just a coincidence or was it all planned out? Leave a comment below

Obviously a species that derives its power from anger is not to be trusted.  Anger is a chaotic and dangerous emotion, and it often results in innocents being injured.  Also, given the island's close proximity to Nynrah, it would be only a matter of time before this anger-driven species acquired the Matoran Universe's best weaponry.


Mata Nui, in his absentee management of the Matoran Universe failed to correct such an obvious oversight  Under Teridax's leadership, a dangerous species was eradicated, and Nynrah was given much-needed protection from outside forces.
