|Mask of Shielding|
|Power(s)||Gives user enhanced Shielding|
|Notable Wearer(s)||The Toa Nuva|
The Hau Nuva was the Kanohi Nuva Mask of Shielding. It allowed its wearer, as well as anyone beside them, to shield themselves. The Mask's exclusive ability to shield others was an exclusive Kanohi Nuva power.
However, the Hau Nuva still did not protect the user from ambushes or mental attacks. And, in addition to this, molecular disruption couls penetrate the shield.
A Hau Nuva could be formed when a Kanohi Hau, that is either destined to be transformed, or is worn by a being who is destined to transform when submerged into Energized Protodermis. Only Toa Nuva can activate this mask.
