Teridax, often simply referred to as "The Makuta" is the bonefide main villain of the Bionicle universe. His list of abilities is astonishing, rivaling what some kids may make up when cheating when playing superhero or something. He dons the mask of Shadows and I guess is an avid Kolhii player. Although Makuta are technically an organization/species, I, being a long-time fan, still call Teridax "Makuta" because that's what he was originally known. Hell, even his lego set just called him Makuta.

When the brotherhood showed up in the comics I was under the impression they were a group simply formed by 'Makuta Teridax' as his own group of personal "Toa" (I wasn't following the online serials at the time). And looking back that idea would idea would have been a better way to have a Brotherhood of Makuta and still keep Teridax and Mata Nui being brothers.

Revealing the main Makuta's name really screwed his identity up. Teridax? I'm glad that "The Shadowed One"'s name wasn't revealed. Or was it? I really fell behind the story.

It seems like they're keeping it "Makuta" in the reboot. I couldn't care less about the story now, though; I just hope he looks cool.
SA-XHunter313's avatar
Yeah, I agree. It's hard to really be interested in the reboot's story when you've been a fan of Bionicle since 2001.

Dang, those long fingers look nasty. They almost look like the legs of a spider... which is really quite fitting, given the character.

Funny you should mention spiders... considering the first villain set of the reboot ;D

Heh. XD To be honest, I'm not really sure if the LOSS qualifies as a villain, per se; it seems more like just some semi-sentient guardian beast, like the Visorak. I hope that when the real Makuta actually DOES return in this series, I hope they preserve his brilliant, conniving, mastermind nature. (by the way, I have a hunch that the Mask of Ultimate Power will revive him)

To be honest, though, from what I've seen so far, I'm not too optimistic about story or character development so far; I know they're trying to simplify it so it's more accessible to younger audiences, but so far it seems like they're doing so at the cost of everything that made the original story so unique and fantastic. I was six when I got into Gen 1 back in '01, and it WAS the culture, the world they created, that got me so invested in the first place. I LOVED the language and terminology they had, the way even the villagers had their own individual characters and personalities, the way they had their own culture, and the way each mask had a unique power, and frankly I think it really sucks that they seem to have thrown all that out so that the only named characters are the Main 6 themselves. The sets look awesome, but the story... not impressed so far.

Funny you should mention. When I was a kid, I didn't get into the stories too much. I was busier making up my own stories XD

I still wonder do you draw your arts on graphicpad or on paper with scanning?

Damn... To be honest it's quite easier to draw an art on paper instead of using graphic pad. Maybe that's why I'm so bad at it in PS...

I haven't tried to learn digital art yet. Not seriously anyway.

"And now for your Final failure, A simple gam of Kohli"-You should know who this is.

Yeah, I totally prefer to call him Makuta as well; I don't see why they had to change it, to be honest. I mean, yeah, they created other members of the species, but they were just Makuta - he is THE Makuta. It just sounds makes him seem SO much more powerful and threatening. So, Makuta it is.

Creepy cool! I'm not saying that you would need to ever change this picture, but something that would of been cool (especially with your drawing skill) would be if he had a few kraata/krata (forgot the spelling, sorry) crawling around him/on him.

Man, "intimidating" is an understatement with ol' Teridax here. O.o

Cheating? This guy might as well have invented it in the Bionicle world.
He was so badass. His final death was kind of anti-climatic to me. I was hoping that all of the Toa would lead a final assault on him.

Instead: crunch.
