I thought the rebuilding was an interesting concept, but I don't want to think about exactly how they did it...

Pridak using actual physical violence against Nocturn (Ehleks Lieutenant). He bit off one of Nocturns arms for disobedience. Pridak is a shark but what is really disturbing is that Nocturn does posess limited regenerative abilities but the tentacle on that arm did not regrow after the incident.

I kind find the concept off the rebuilding on Karzahni pretty disturbing to be honest. Before 2006 the only Matoran we knew and connected with lived on Mata Nui or Metru Nui (Of which the populations are essentially the same), so the concept of other Matoran existing in far-off lands completely different to the ones we were used to.
2001 - 2003 makes the Matoran seem like a light-hearted happy race which thrives with simple business and working together (Mostly, *Cough Ahkmou*). But then seeing these Matoran on a eerie, sinister island ruled by a mysterious and mentally unstable lord who literally biologically/biomechanically modifies them into potentially hideous forms of what they once were seems to be one of the darkest themes in Bionicle.
BionicleNP represents this quite nicely in his 'Bionicle Ignition 1' stopmotion film on YouTube.
Also the Krana always spooked me out. During the Bohrok saga, the Krana were always an uncovered mystery due to their parasitic nature and even after the Bohrok swarms had been defeated, in the animations it shows the Matoran dumping them into pits with creepy music playing in the background, suggesting the mystery of the Krana is still hidden in a thick fog of years to come.
And we never did find out the origins of the Krana, although I find it is one of the most intriguing aspects of the entire G1 series.....

Or they're just another rahi. We'll probably never know.

According to Biosector, Krana where made by the Great Being - from Matoran left overs. So it's kinda more horrifying to think that the Bohrok, fully turned Av-Matoran, are controlled by the off cuts of their species.

- Anything to do with Metru-Nui during Teridax's stint as Dume.
- Anything Karzhani.
- The Piraka's occupation of Voya-Nui. All of it.
- The imprisoned Great Being.
- Any and all things on Mata-Nui (Island).

*In 2006, Karzahni uses it to show Jaller what would have happened if he didn't sacrifice himself to save Takua from Turahk, and he sees Mata Nui ruled by Makuta, using Rahkshi to enforce his law.
*In 2007, he uses it to show Makuta what would happen if Mata Nui was reawakened. Makuta sees his own punishment, and it is one of the only times in the entire storyline the Master of Shadows is truly humbled, if even for a moment.
*Also in 2007, he uses it against Lesovikk to trap him in a fantasy where his original team didn't die. Lesovikk lives entire years in the fantasy before a minor error on Karzahni's part forces Lesovikk to realize the truth, and the life he had known with his teammates falls apart as he returns to the Pit, alone, mutated, having to cope with the loss of his team a second time.
The Rahkshi are pretty scary in the first movie as well. Much like the Tusken Raiders in Star Wars, their creepiness is strengthened by mixing their animalistic behavior with humanoid form. The scene where Takua confronts Kurahk makes the viewer realize he's just barely above the power level of a normal human facing off against an insanely powerful enemy.
I also must mention BIONICLE Legends 1: Island of Doom, for creating a perfectly depressing atmosphere on Voya Nui. Greg does a great job of making the Matoran there seem completely abandoned, and adding the Piraka who just have no concern for them whatsoever is terrifying. Legacy of Evil continues this by creating a world where evil seems to go unpunished. City of the Lost tries to go the same route, but in my opinion fails because it had already been done, and also because the Barraki somehow seem less evil. I'll just say I can see myself living comfortably under the League of Six Kingdoms for some reason, and I definitely can't see that in a world where the Piraka actually got the Ignika.

Great point! As such I will now take this excerpt from Island of Doom during the account of the enslavement of the Matoran:
"Six Piraka, each armed with a launcher, advanced toward the Matoran from six different directions. They said nothing, only smiled. The reflections of torchlight turned their armor red and gold, but they were not the pure, clean colors of a Toa of Fire - no, they were the fearsome hues of creatures from the pit. Shadows slithered like snakes over their faces and bodies, obscuring their expressions, with the exception of those ever-present, malevolent grins."
I don't know about you guys, but that gave me the chills first time I read that (honestly still does)
