* The only three surviving Makuta in "Dark Mirror" were Teridax, Krika and Kojol. It makes perfect sense: all three relied on strategies that required patience, secrecy and waiting (Kojol knew the location of Artakha and never told anyone, making him an important asset for Teridax) in canon. Of course they would run away and hide while Gorast, Icarax and Antroz were being smashed by Toa Empire.
* Icarax' love for melee combat? His ''mask'' only absorbs life energy from intact bodies, which do not usually remain after plasma blasts and acid-based attacks.
** He got his Kraahkan from Teridax's corpse. Oh well, he carried the mask of ''Scavenging'' before that.

* {{Alternate Universe}}s are by default seen as less important to the main one, simply because in the ''BIONICLE'' fiction, they are merely side-branches of the main timeline. This means that no matter what atrocities may happen in those worlds, these are simply glossed over. For example, just think of Tridax: he kidnapped and forcibly corrupted a whole bunch of Takanuvas from various other dimensions, who were then either killed during the Destiny War or freed and ''then'' killed by the Alternate Teridax. Not only does this mean that the main universe characters condoned killing originally innocent Toa who only turned evil due to a crazed villain, but also that all those other universes have been robbed of their only Toa of Light, one of their most powerful heroes. But since they aren't the main universe, they don't seem to matter.

* In The Kingdom universe it's said that even the Island of Mata Nui will soon not be habitable either. This makes sense since later on in the main universe it's revealed that the island is being propped up by Mata Nui's ''face''. If the great spirit has died this means that whatever kept his body afloat in Aqua Magna is now offline, and he is slowly sinking into the ocean floor.

* The announcement that the [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway Mask of Creation]] is on the same level as the Masks of Life and Time was greeted with some skepticism. But the Matoran are all about creation; if they don't do their jobs, as seen in the case of the Great Disruption, then Mata Nui will start dying. For them to lose their creativity, as would happen if the Mask of Creation was smashed, it would be just as bad in the long run as if one of the other two was destroyed.

* The revelation that the Red Star actually revives the dead brings some really horrible thoughts about the ones that died ''permanent deaths''. It's implied that Matoro, Icarax and the many Shadow Takanuvas are not only killed off for real, but that they would be denied to what's essentially the heaven and reincarnation of the matoran universe. Worse would probably be Tuyet from the Toa Empire Universe, who got killed ''in-between dimensions'', dooming her consciousness to float in the endless void and no one knows it!

* The Mask of Life can only manipulate objects that are/were living, thus it can transform the weapons of Glatorian into elemental tools since they were created from animal bones. So why was it able to create a body for Mata Nui out of lifeless sand? Unless that wasn't sand...And Bara Magna ''was'' the site of a large scale war and disaster...

* All of Teridax's primary defeats (his fight with Vakama, Takanuva, and Mata Nui) all involve him being crushed by a massive stone (a huge stone pillar, the Mangaia Door, and a piece of Aqua Magna). At first this might seem like an odd coincidence... but note the punishment of {{Pride}} in Dante's Purgatory; being forced to carry large boulders in order to learn humility, unable to stand with their heads held high. Given Teridax's fatal flaw, these three defeats suddenly become far more symbolic- most especially when he lifts the door to Mangaia, where's visibly struggling and kneeling underneath the weight to help others as Takutanuva.

* With Metru Nui turning out to being the Great Spirit's brain, it clears up why the Matoran were the "heart" of it; they had to work to keep the city running in perfect condition so that Mata Nui did not fall into a coma. This also made several of the Metrus take on greater significance: Ko-Metru take in and interpret what Mata Nui learns. Onu-Metru and it's archives retains the information. Ga-Metru teachs and learns the information, ensuring it would not be forgotten soon. Po-Metru process raw material to repair and maintain the other metrus, Ta-Metru does the same for the Matoran. And Le-Metru ensures all of this is easily and quickly transported. When the Matoran left, Mata Nui lost all of these abilities and was literally comatose. When the turaga said that Mata Nui was sleeping, ''they meant it literally''. It also explains why Mata Nui was dying; most people don't do well when their brain is comatose for well over a millenium.

* Masks are central to the story, especially in the early years. In 2009 it was revealed that the island of Mata Nui was a camouflage mechanism to hide the Great Spirit Robot's face. ''The entire island is a giant mask''.
