The Rahkshi are group of antagonists that appeared in the BIONICLE series. They are the group of armored creatures that served as the soldiers for the Brotherhood of Makuta

The Rahkshi are in reality not living creatures, but an armor suits that were controlled by worm-like creatures called Kraata.

There are also another Rahkshi species who were known as the wild Rahkshi. However unlike the Brotherhood's Rahkshi, these wild Rahkshi were known to live independently on their own and were known to fight against the other Rahkshi as well.



Over 100,000 years ago when the Makuta were created by the Great Beings, they formed the Brotherhood of Makuta as the organization came into being. Then, they began to create the army of Rahkshi by placing the Kraata into their bodies and mold them into becoming soldiers along with the Toa Hagah,VisorakExo-Toa and some Rahi.

During the Brotherhood's rule, the Rahkshi serve as both the soldiers and bodyguards as their task was to maintain the balance of the Matoran population.

When the League of Six Kingdoms led by Pridak; the former servant of the Brotherhood attempt to overthrow the Great Spirit by invading Metru Nui, Makuta Miserix ordered Teridax to assemble an alliance army of Toa Mangai, Rahkshi, Visorak, Vahki, Exo-Toa, Toa Hagah, various Rahi and various Toa to stop Pridak and his army. The counterattack was a success as the allied forces finally defeated the League of Six Kingdoms along with the Barraki as well. When Teridax and some Makuta fall to the dark side, the Brotherhood of Makuta eventually became evil and corrupted. To this end, they began to used the Rahkshi, Visorak and the rest of their army to begin to oppress the Matoran.

Reign of Shadows

With Teridax successfully taken over the Great Spirit Robot, he make his first move by sending the surviving Exo-Toa and the Visorak that he created once more across the Matoran Universe. He also have them captured the remaining Makuta and forced them to create the army of the Rahkshi of Heat Vision before eliminating them when they have lived out their usefulness towards him. He then sent the rest of the Rahkshi to invade both the islands of Daxia and Artakha, as the Rahkshi successfully ruined Daxia and killed some of the Order agents there.
