This seems like the second mask that can destroy the universe. Besides the Ignika.
They are two of three Legendary powers; not a coincidence. The other is Artakha's Mask of Creation. (Not sure if we should consider it confirmed totally that it would too, but yeah.)
And BTW, it's hardly the second. This was established in main story in 2003, three years before the Ignika's existence was even revealed. It's the first.
i just want to clarify one thing it would only destroy the matoran universe if the mask it self were to be destroyed. everything out side of the MU robot would be safe. i just had to put this since i remember there being a big woha over this and greg had to clarify this.
People seem to be making this sort of argument all across the board. There's the question of whether the Vahi works/affects outside the MU, whether the Ignika works/affects outside the MU, whether the Red Star can grab beings from the MU if they're outside of it, etc. I don't see why any of those things would not work outside the MU. But we could always ask Greg.
my statement was not meaning that it would not work outside the mu just that if it were to go haywireit would not be as distastrous as if it were inside the mu
Just to be clear, Greg already told us the Vahi's destruction only destroys time in the Matoran Universe, not everywhere. Also, "destroy" is really a figure of speech in this case that really isn't accurate. It's more like, unleash time to go crazy within the MU (that is, the world made of protodermis like the mask). He confirmed that Vakama's description of it in Time Trap is accurate, apparently, and that did not simply freeze time everywhere. Rather, it would destroy the organized, linear nature of time.
You're correct that these things can "work" outside the MU, but only in normal operation. Destroying them isn't "working", it's the opposite.
