Noble Kanohi Mahiki
Mask of Illusion
Power(s)Illusion casting and shapeshifting
KanokaReconstitutes At Random and Weaken
Notable Wearer(s)Matoran/Toa/Turaga Matau

The Kanohi Mahiki is the Mask of Illusion. The Great Mahiki gives its user the power to shapeshift or cast illusions. The user can change into forms of the same mass and imitate voices, but cannot copy powers. The Noble Mahiki doesn't let the user shapeshift, however. Instead, it only lets them cast illusions. Kanohi Elda, Arthron and Rode will see through its usage.

Mahiki were carved out of a mixture of Reconstitute At Random and Weaken Kanoka on Metru Nui.

Example Usages

Great: Toa Matau used his Mask of Illusion to shapeshift into a Vahki, Nidhiki, and Krekka in BIONICLE 2: Legends of Metru Nui.

Noble: Kopaka used a Noble Mahiki to make multiple illusions of himself in the MNOLG.
