The powers of the Rahkshi:
Guurahk: Collapse--what does this have to do with water?
Panrahk: Shatter--what does this have to do with stone?
Kurahk: Confusion--what does this have to do with ice?
Turahk: Fear--Well, I suppose you'd be scared of fire.
Lerahk: Mush--what does this have to do with air?
Vorahk: Vortex--what does this have to do with earth?
Most of the the Kal powers had some resemblance to the original elemental powers eg. air to vacuum, but the Rahkshi ones are completely mad! But please don't say why they go with the villages, as I already know that.
EDIT--Comet Ball Traitor, I've fixed that problem.

True, it is a bit misleading to call them "elemental" powers. But it would be boring and pointless if all new foes had similar powers to the old ones. Are you complaining? I find the Rahkshi powers very fitting, since they are the spawn of Makuta himself.

That's true but Makuta has never been one for rules
PS you mixed up turahk and kurahk
Mar 11 2003, 03:56 PM
If the Rahkshi had all the same elemental powers of the toa it would be way too easy for the toa to figure out how to counter them. I mean how do tou easily counter fear or confusion

CBT is right you have mixed up the powers of Kurahk and Turahk. No biggie though!
They don't really have to resemble the original elemental powers. Just look at what we humans have done. We have taken things like the tiniest of atoms and made them into devestating nuclear weapons. We have taken fossilise animals and plants and used them as energy to power everyday things such as cars. (which are aparently destroying the planet slowly).
I think the Rahshki powers are quite fitting anyway.

Well, I don't know about this, but maybe the Rahkshi will also have the elemental powers. Since the powers seem to come from their staffs, maybe there will be a power granted from the Kraata, or perhaps the power would be a natural power like the Toa.

I think they have absolutly no relationship between the two. They are powers of destrustion and distraction. (think makuta)

I agree with Kanohi of Indescribable Power. Maybe it means that they have the original elementals in addition to their Makuta-esque powers. Hopefully we'll find out in June(?) when they come out.

Actually, only Vohrak has elemental powers. it uses the "v
rtex" to copy the powers of the nuva. Or so i've heard. This is something i'm definetly getting

Makuta built them to beat the toa not the wahi.
Turahk's fear easily takes down tahu's pride makes him feel vulnerable
Kurahk's confusion takes down Kopaka who is always so sure of himself
How can lewa fly when lerahk turns his beloved forest to mush
Gali loves her people but what can she do when the structures collapse making her koro float apart.
How can pohatu run when all the ground keep shattering
How can onua and all his strenth fight when it will be turned rught back at him
See they are made to destroy how they fight and what they fight for
Mar 13 2003, 08:52 AM
these powers are the powers of destruction, since they are a part (or were) of makuta it makes sence that they have the powers of destruction.and all the powers of the toa in one way or another can be used to repair ,as well as destroy,but the powers of the toa are mostly the powers of ,well,life!!!

The powers are intended both to make them more effective seekers so they can prevent the Seventh Toa from appearing... and also to help them shatter the unity of the Toa Nuva and Matoran and distract them from their duty and their destiny.

Thanks Greg that really helped me... Although im still a little confused

That's a very good reason. I don't see why the Rahkshi powers need to be related to the Toa's, and I think the Rahkshi powers are great.

I agree with CBT, QB570 and GregF. (duh!) I also think that the rahkshi's powers are just plain DEADLY! if they came together, nothing could withstand them!

Imagine if they all combined their powers. There would be no stone left on Mata Nui.
Mar 13 2003, 02:55 PM
I think that Lerahk´s mush power includes 50% Acid, i mean Lerahk should be able to damage Lewa Nuva a little bit

I understand Panrahk's power of shatering, allow me to explain. Remember comic#4(#3 in England) when the Pahrak were destroying Ta-Koro:
|Pohatu, their powers are causing an avalanche|
You see, the Pahrak were levelling to the ground, which is why Pahrak-kal has plasma to level to the groung, same thing with Panrahk.
PS. Thank goodness for GregF.

Well obviously there is no relationship between the two. The rahkshi seem to have powers of pure destruction where as the toa harness elemental powers. I think they're different is because the bohrok have pretty much similar powers to their toa counterparts and lego is trying to move away forrm that with different powers, I.e. , the kal's powers.

well mush is like swamp area's and yaa thats all i can think of...
