    Notes
    The Nuhvok are the most solitary and mysterious of the swarms, as they are almost never seen on the surface. And when they are, it is in dark enclosed spaces like the forest of Le-Wahi. They do not immediately defend themselves, but when they determine what is happening, they will strike out with their formidable hammer shields. If backed into a corner, they will strike out tenaciously until help arrives.They are at their most vulnerable in open spaces. Therefore, the best strategy for catching a Nuhvok is to lure it above ground away from its swarm. The Nuhvok are the tunnelers of the Bohrok, using the power of their shields to blast their way through earth and rock. They are hard workers and incredibly strong - together, they have the power to bring down a mountain. Although slow to react to attacks, they are fierce when cornered. When their krana are removed, they can be put to work rebuilding what they have destroyed.

    Several Nuhvok made a cameo appearance in Mask of Light, discovered frozen in Ko-Wahi by Takua and Jaller.
