I thought that the Shadow Toa were literally shadows taken from the Toa by Teridax and life was breathed into them by Teridax. However, a deeper theory would be that Teridax could see and separate the darker parts of the Toa's souls and manifested them into the physical world. This would definitely bring a new dimension not the extent of Makuta powers, if not just Teridax's. this could mean that dreams, nightmares, guilt, and fear could be in physical existence, giving Makuta unimaginable powers. If they can all access these powers, I would think that Teridax would be the only one that figured it out, besides maybe Miserix, but that's beside the point. Teridax could have perhaps taught this to the others, but chose not to simply to set him apart from the others, to keep his psychological and literal role as leader of the Makuta. Heh, sorry, I've begun to ramble. Just extending my imagination to non canon theories and such, while still incorporating canonically relevant concepts. Whoops. Rambling again. Just a horrible talent of mine.
