Storyline

Plot Summary

The legends tells the story of how the Toa came to be, chosen from the pool of Matoran youth in the great city of Metru Nui and, though physically transformed, hardly prepared for increased size and super heroic powers. Now in short order, the Toa--who babble and bicker like agitated adolescents--have to master their new gifts, impress their leader, and prepare to protect their home.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Each of the Toa share the same basic body-type in this movie, the only exception being Nokama, the female Toa of Water. She seems to have what appears to be a cleavage, with the upper panel of her chest-plate missing. The pair of mechanical gears underneath also seem to more prominent than the ones of her male companions, even if smaller. While this doesn't make perfect sense in the BIONICLE world, it does help to make her gender instantly determinable. Recent years have seen rabid complaining among fans because the newer female Toa characters look rather masculine. See more »
Goofs When Toa Lhikan arrives in the district of Ga-Metru, a male voice gasps his name, even though there are only female citizens in Ga-Metru. See more »

Crazy Credits Near the end of the credits, many gag titles are written in Bionicle writing. When decoded, they read: Best Matoran, Location Scouts, Asst to Mr Makuta, Set Doctor, Nivawk Handler, Gaffer, Vahki Transport Captain, Security for Metru Nui, Master Builders, Stunt Riders, Stunt Doubles for Matau and Kikanalo Wranglers.

Quotes Whenua: Oh, this is just great. When I woke up, all I worried about was cataloging. Now I go down in history as Metru Nui's most wanted.
Onewa: [scoffs] You? I'm the one suffering here, stuck with a Ko-Matoran big brain, and an Onu-Matoran stock boy!
