alright we all know that mataus weapon is called the kaukau staff but why kaukau staff kaukau is gali's mask? and matau holds lewas legends not gali's

Interesting but I can't think of a reason why. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

Interesting, I've noticed that too. Maybe they both hold secret powers that no one knows about and Kaukau is the name of that power.

Nice point you have there. I never noticed that. I'm sure Lego has some reason to named it that!
EDIT: Happy birthday Maju the Protector!

Maybe but maybe not. Gali is the only female toa so she could hold dome importance.
And BTW Happy Birthday Maju.

actually there is a difference. Gali's Kaukau have the Kau's together, and the Kau Kau Staff has the Kau's separate. its all basic grammar. they may sound the same, doesnt mean they are the same. Kau and Kaukau maybe different words in Maori. I hope this answered ur question.
Aug 24 2003, 02:14 PM
wow those are some pretty reasonable theories
EDIT:I'm turaga yeh!

Maybe you should go to the lexicon on Bionicle.com and
look Kau Kau or just plain Kau.

it could be a coincidence, or they could somehow be honest (in the immortal words of ed) "i havent got a clue, smartypants."

Might have been a coincidence might have been on purpose. The world may never know.

hey ur welcome. just go to Bionicle.com, it will tell you all u need, i guess. grammar just makes thing different. the Kaukau mask and Kau Kau Staff is the same example as the Takanuva/Ussanui and Takua/Ussal crab. they look similar, in fact alot similar(in my opinion), but they are completly different things. Makuta Nui and Ussanui. Makuta Nui is a combiner, Ussanui isn't, yet they both have Nui in them. usually when Nui is used, it means its a combiner. for example: Matoran Nui, Turaga Nui. but sometimes when Nui is used, it means it is from Mata Nui. for example: Nui-Rama, Nui-Jaga. you see? grammar and definition of the words can make the things very different.

It is like takua and takanuva, they may sound the same but they are not the same person!

Hey Daz what is the reference for that statement
Aug 24 2003, 06:55 PM
i guess they were running out of names so they had to use on over again.
Aug 24 2003, 07:01 PM
hmm I dunno relly good thought tho
Aug 24 2003, 08:23 PM
Wow, these Bio-grammar is hard.
I think Kau Kau is to emphasize the power while Kaukau itself is a power.
Aug 24 2003, 09:46 PM
I'm pretty sure it's just like the english language, words are spelled similar, but are different. dove-a bird, or like, you dove into the water, it's probably along those lines.
