** The Order of Mata Nui was created specifically to allow them to do things that the Toa's moral code would forbid. That hasn't stopped some of their more morally gray missions from pushing them into KnightsTemplar territory for some.

* GeniusBonus: If you've spent any significant amount of time studying UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}}, you might notice that [[ArcWords "Unity", "Duty" and "Destiny"]] are three of the primary meanings of the word ''dharma''--a word that's notoriously difficult to concisely translate into English. Depending on the context, ''dharma'' can be understood to mean "One's ultimate place in the world, as dictated by the universe itself", "One's moral obligation to find one's place in the world and fulfill one's destiny", and "The underlying direction of the universe, which binds all living beings together in one common purpose".

** Hell, even Roodaka's not a good example: Her ''entire species'' looks like that, males and females. The first male of her species shown in the comics was simply a green PaletteSwap of Roodaka.

* HellIsThatNoise: The rahkshi's shrieks, which are quite reminiscent of the [[Film/LordOfTheRings Nazgul]].



** While most of them were [[CompleteMonster unrepentantly evil]], it's hard not to feel a little pity for the Makuta in Karda Nui [[spoiler:as the energy storms start up, all because Teridax [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness deemed them dangerous to his new rule]]]]. [[AxCrazy Gorast]]'s death in particular is noteworthy, because unlike the others who try to escape, [[spoiler:all she can do [[VillainousBSOD stare into the storms constantly repeating how]] Krika was right, unable to comprehend that the [[UndyingLoyalty one she swore her life to had intentionally led her to her doom]]]].
* TheUntwist: Makuta was the mastermind behind so many evil plots, that fans quickly grew tired of how often he was revealed to be the BigBad, especially in 2004, which featured a different setting, different heroes and two new big bads -- turns out one was just a FillerVillain to the other's BiggerBad, who was in fact Makuta in disguise. It didn't help that the movie of that year, ''Legends of Metru Nui'', spoiled that at the very beginning and contained like three subsequent "Makuta is the villain" reveals in later scenes, some of which even contradicted each other.

** Partially subverted in that ''Heroes'' was still fairly enjoyable (especially the DS version, which is basically similar to ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime Hunters'') despite being canon rape, and fully subverted with the GBA RPG ''Maze of Shadows'', a direct video game adaptation of one of the chapter books.
