The Kirikori Nui are locust-like Rahi.


The Kirikori Nui are one of the many species to be created by the Brotherhood of Makuta using viruses and liquid Protodermis to populate the Matoran Universe.

The Kirikori Nui arrived once each ten years in Metru Nui. When the Kirikori Nui arrived, their swarms blackened the skies, and they devoured all the vegetation from Po-Metru and Ga-Metru.

It’s known that once a plague of Kirikori Nui struck the island of Mata Nui, and they consumed a lot of vegetation. After the incident the Turaga always kept an eye in the sky, as a suddenly darkening it meant the arrival of the swarm of Kirikori Nui. Most of the Kirikori Nui went back to the Matoran Universe, but some remained on the island after the plague, making the borders of the Po-Wahi desert their home. Makuta captured some of these Rahi and enslaved them with his Infected Kanohi. Infected Kirikori Nui were know to throw heavy stones at the Matoran, though this Kirikori Nui were freed from Makuta’s control after the Toa Mata defeated him on the Mangaia.

Mata Nui's population of Kirikori Nui was forced to migrate back to Metru Nui after the Toa Nuva unleashed the Bohrok Swarms on the island. The Kirikori Nui successfully arrived to the Matoran Universe, where they resided for some time.

After Teridax was killed by a fragment of Aqua Magna, the Kirikori Nui and the other Rahi will have to join the mass exodus to Spherus Magna to escape the Matoran Universe before it finally breaks down in order to survive.
