Five out of the six barraki (exluding Ehlek) belonged to a species that could wear and use kanohi. My question is: Which kanohi do you think they would have if they chose to wear masks? Which masks would make sence to each character?

They could wear masks, but the Barraki didn't. It was said that they would consider relying on Kanohi to be like a crutch.

They could wear Kanohi, but I dought any of the Barraki did. They seem to pride full. Even if they did I'd imagine they were taken off them by Hydraxon when they were sent to the pit. Ehlek. Wearing a kaukau, seem a bit redundant docent it.

I was thinking of a combo, like two different masks fused together

I can see Pridak and Takadox using a Kanohi Mask of Mind Control or a Mask of Rahi Control. (Actually, I could see any of the Barraki using those masks. :P) I could also see Mantax wearing a Kanohi Mask of Silence or Stealth because they would help him conceal himself better.

I've always thought that the Barraki would wear masks that aren't necessarily in the canon, because I'm sure there are many masks, we just haven't seem them in the story.

 

I actually wrote down in a list somewhere what masks they wore, in my mind, at least, and if I remember, they were:

 

Pridak: Mask of Rage - makes the wearer stronger but causes uncontrollable anger

Carapar: Mask of Removal - allows the user to remove any non-vital body part (this goes along with him removing one of his claws in order to wield a Squid Launcher)

Kalmah: Mask of Regeneration - the user can regrow body parts; the speed at which the parts are recovered depends on the amount lost

Takadox: Mask of Deception - the user casts a "spell" on an item, rendering it invisible as long as the mask is active; can only be used on one object at a time, and the effect turns off when the mask is deactivated, but returns when the mask is used again (hence how he was able to hide his Transit Tablet or whatever it was called)

Mantax: Mask of Camouflage - the user can blend in with their surroundings, rendering them nearly invisible; requires the wearer to be pressed against the surface to work, and any shift in body will require the mask to be used again.

I disagree that Takadox would take any mind controlling masks, because he already has that power. He'd want something else, probably a self-defense mask.

 

Pridak might want the Mask of Charisma. Mind Control is a good choice too.

 

Carapar... He's (allegedly) too dumb to think like Takadox so he'd probably just want to increase the only strength he's good at -- Strength. :P (Although I doubt whether he's really all that dumb, but it's hard to tell IMO.)

 

I agree with Camouflage for Mantax as a possibility but he might also want something else since he's good at hiding already.

 

Kalmah I have no idea.

Kalmah might take the Mask of Rahi Control or something because in the Pit, he controlled and bred all those Squid. I feel like he would use it pretty cruelly, because he wasn't exactly nice to all those Squids.

I kind of see Kalmah using a Faxon. I mean, the mask can imitate the powers of the Rahis in each landscape. For a guy like Kalmah that would be useful for various reasons.

The rest, I'd agree with bonesiii on his choices.

[color=#808080;][font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"]I could see Mantax with a Mask of Scavenging.For some reason I doubt Pridak would use a Mahiki or Huna, since he takes pride in his appearance.[/color][/font]

What about Ehlek, what mask would he wear? I'm going with a Mask of Rahi Control as well, seeing that he controls an army of eels.

He wouldn't wear a mask, his species couldn't use kanohi.

Kanohi that the Toa consider Immoral. I do feel like Kongu's Mahri mask is what Kalmah had except he mastered the ability to summon rahi, plus his face looks a little like the Zatth.

Does anyone else think it would be cruelly ironic if Kalmah wore an Akaku? Shape wise, it makes sense, but storywise, it would be ironic sense he lost one of his eyes.

If your talking about Solek's Akaku, then yes it does look very similar and Irony would be null and void

I think he was referring to the Great Kanohi Akaku worn by Kopaka rather than the Noble Akaku worn by Solek.

Yeah, I was talking about the Great Kanohi Akaku. I think it looks most like his face with the multi-eye deal he has (plus, if you look at it, there's a spot where he could see out of through the top). Plus, it's a Mask of X-Ray vision. And he then goes to losing it, then his top eye. Slow descent to blindness.

Well, the Barraki might have worn masks, even if they did view them as a crutch. Maybe they were Matoran masks, who knows. But, to the point: Pridak would have worn the Crast, Takadox, assuming he had the hypnosis powers already, would have worn a Mask of Fear, what ever that is or would be. Mantax would have a mask of Stealth, obviously, while Carapar would have the Mask of Strength, which once again would have attributed him to his personality, like Mantax. Kalmah is more of a mystery. Perhaps a Mask of Elasticity? I don't know.

Definitely not, I think, since he already had that power via hypnosis.

That's the same thing as with Takadox- he's already adept at stealth, so I don't think he'd need a mask to help him with that. Maybe something like Scavenging for Mantax, though.

I don't think that one's the same. He can't turn himself invisible, unlike Takadox who very much can control minds. Since he values stealth, he would probably want a mask that would make him better at it.
