Title pretty much says it all. If you had to explain the Bionicle storyline to someone who isn't familiar with it in one sentence, what would you say?

BIONICLE is an epic story of heroes sacrificing everything they know to protect the innocents with everything they have.

 

(insert details about Toa, Makuta, Matoran, GSR, and all that nerdy stuff)

BIONICLE is an epic story of heroes sacrificing everything they know to protect the innocents with everything they have.


Take out the word BIONICLE and that could describe over a thousand different stories. It's reasonably accurate, but it doesn't exactly capture any of what makes BIONICLE unique or special.

My sentence would be:

Biomechanical denizens of a giant, sapient robot fight to save their world from an evil virus that wants to control it.

Or perhaps, if you wanted to go with a less spoilery explanation:

Elemental biomechanical heroes fight to restore their Great Spirit to power after an evil spirit casts him into a coma.

Biomechanical beings called Matoran that can become an elemental warrior called a Toa if it is their destiny and the story is about these Matoran living and working inside of a giant robot that is also home to the power-hungry Makuta, one of whom eventually sends the giant robot into a coma in hopes of becoming the supreme ruler, which causes a Toa team called the Toa Nuva to be launched out of the robot and eventually float to the island of Mata Nui, which is named after the robot, where they fight animals controlled by Makuta, mechanical bug-like robots with an ejectable brain that can mind control you if it lands on your face and the Rahkshi, the latter of whom are called the sons of Makuta, and when the Toa Nuva beat all of them they return to the "brain" of the giant robot, which was where the majority of the Matoran lived before the robot went into a coma, and then the leaders of the Matoran, called the Turaga, realize that the robot isn't just asleep- it's dying, so they send the Toa Nuva to an island called Voya Nui to find the Mask of Life to save the Mata Nui robot but the Toa Nuva get defeated so six Matoran go to Voya Nui and get turned into Toa and they find the Mask of Life but it flies underwater and the Toa have to find the Mask, but one Toa sacrifices himself to use the Mask of Life and revive Mata Nui from death; and then the Mask of Life falls into the universe core, a place called Karda Nui, and the Toa Nuva get new armor and have to fight many Makuta so they can put the Mask of Life into the Codrex, which is a giant metal ball that is the "pump" of Karda Nui, which is the robot's heart, and the Mask of Life revives Mata Nui but then the Makuta who put him in a coma takes over the robot and puts the robot's A.I. into the Mask of Life and shoots it off to another planet, but Mata Nui gets a new body the size of a Toa and he has to build and power up the prototype robot on this planet, which is where the Mata Nui robot was made, so he can fight the evil Makuta and bring peace to the world- which he does and then the Matoran and Toa come out of the broken Mata Nui robot that was controlled by Makuta and begin new lives on the planet called Spherus Magna.

Sorta-kinda-but-not-really-robots with the power to water-, air-, fire-, earth-, and a few more -bend to combat this really evil guy that thinks that dictatorships are actually a really great idea but turn out to be a bad idea and so it causes a lot of death and war and I really reccomend skipping the ending and making your own if you want a good one.

Serious:

Colorful LEGO buildable figures with joints who represent elemental heros and protect their villagers from shadowy villains.

Whatever:

Reds are always the leaders and also Fire-spitters who lava surf, green wind-riders who never turn left, all the good blue characters are female, snow characters are anti-social, rock and earth are different elements say wha, had collectible masks and face huggers and slug and discs and squids and spheres, sets gave up arm-swinging action features for knees and elbows and zamor launchers, they live on a tropical island paradise but used to live in a big technical city but then travel to a barren island then underwater then a swamp in a cavern that's the heart to the whole universe which is actually a robot, then to a desert planet that they hit with two other planets and make a full paradise planet, also Makuta's the main bad guy but also a species but still the main guy who controls everything at all times... hey, just go play the MNOLG and go on from there.

An epic tale of jealous, power-hungry mad scientists who enjoy darkness in their attempt to overthrow the rule of a large yet very easy to fool robot, while multi-colored knights with elemental powers, often in groups of six, fight valiantly to thwart them.

When you put it that way, it almost sounds as though the Makuta are the protagonists.

I can also be found under the username Azani on SolisMagna.com and the BioMediaProject forums. Check out SolisMagna.com, as it is exactly what we need to maintain interest in Bionicle. Also, I highly recommend Check out the script for Mysterious Island, an adaption/reboot of the 2001 Bionicle story which I am writing. It's also a musical.

Joke:     Better than Hero Factory.

 

Real:     An epic saga spanning 100,000 years of history in a world where there are little robots augmented with organics protected by big robots augmented with organics who are trying to defeat a bigger robot who used to be like the big robots but bigger but then turned into a floaty green gas, and they're fighting because the bigger robot who is actually a cloud of gas wants to take the place of their god and after about seven years of the same thing happening it turns out that the little robots and the big robots and the bigger robot who actually has others of his kind and a bunch of other robots are really just maintenance workers in a HUGE robot and the bigger robot takes over the HUGE robot and banishes the god who finds another smaller HUGE robot and proceeds to smack the HUGE robot which is being controlled by the bigger robot into a moon and turns the desert into a paradise and then goes dormant.

 

Wow, that was quite a mouthful. I didn't even go into specifics. Or include the countless Alternate Universes, Pocket Dimensions, etc.

Bionicle is the toy line that the greatest toy company ever saved itself with, and by doing so, immersed fans into an story that is revealed over ten years in construction sets, even though the story, which is about little villagers named Matoran that are inside of a giant robot, Mata Nui, and also about Toa, larger beings with elemental powers that always seem to work in teams of six, takes place over only one year.
