When you step back and think about it bionicle IS really weird.
The charachters put on masks witch enhance their abilities. now think about that for a minute WHY MASKS!
Because it's weird. To be original, weird is a prerequisite. Otherwise you just have generic, same ole, same ole.
Everybody lives inside a giant robot. nuff said
A planet blew up into 3 peices
They take disks and carve them into masks WHY DISKS!
The disks part is really one of the least weird. We have frisbees in this world. It's an efficient way to get a large chunk of something (enough protodermis to power something close to a mask power) from point A (the user) to point B (the target since they're activated on impact). You could also use an arrow, but it wouldn't have its own lift.
big evil plants want to kill everybody
That part isn't weird.
one species has a slug on their back that makes them mad (not just because they have a slug permenantly attached to their back, it actually goes in their brain and makes them mad)
I'm not sure who we're talking about now. This sounds like a description of the Brain Attack arc of Hero Factory. Maybe Rahkshi? But Rahkshi aren't a species; they're a suit of armor (that used to be the slugs, prior to soaking in EP). Which is still weird, but accuracy. Rahkshi have no brain of their own; the Kraata's brain is what controls the suit's motions.
Maybe Bohrok? Bohrok have simple robot brains, but the Krana aren't slugs and don't attach to their backs, but foreheads (inside).
you slap a mask on an animal and you can controll it with your mind. How does the mask fit?
I'm not sure if we're still talking weirdness or if this is a serious story question, but the answer if the latter is simple -- the Makuta make Rahi with parts to attach masks, in case they ever want (or need, from the pre-evil perspective, to handle out-of-control Rahi) to take them over directly. And they generally seem to include masks automatically.
But yes, that's weird, and that's why it's awesome. It's a new idea, or with unique details. That's imagination -- that's LEGO.
The only thing i would change was them living in a giant robot...
Pretty reasonable if you ask me. Take a nice planet, cut off the two areas that make it worth living on: water and vegetation.
Yeah, and since those zones happened to be at polar opposites (literally), it makes a ton of sense, both for why they have those habitat traits and why those two places broke off. The solar angle would be lower, explaining why most regions closer to the equator were desert, and most open water or thick vegetation would be at the poles. And the rotation could produce lines of physical weakness at the poles that EP traveled up and when it exploded broke those two parts.
Had it NOT broken two parts of equal opposition, in fact, the blast would have been directional (even if averaging out between two or more openings), and the planet would probably be blasted out of proper orbit (not escape velocity, but the exact alignment could be lost, leading possibly to eventual extinction from heat or cold). And had there been no points of weakness, probably the whole planet would have exploded, wimpily, but enough that it would at least be a superquake killing everybody on the surface.
He's talking about the Skakdi/Piraka.
? There's no slugs involved with Skakdi. I think he's confused about how Rahkshi work. Hopefully the above will clear it up. Edit: Okay, see three posts down -- it appears there actually is an obscure reference to slugs with Skakdi that fit that description. Our bad.
