The Toa of Light has been killed by Maxilos, many years later Dekar and Defilak finds the mask.

Two Bohrok's called Lehvak-Kal and Gahlok-Kal (that now have their own will) are chosen for the task. The next day the village gets attacked by the Barraki, two Toa's; Tahu and Lewa comes to save the people. Unfortunately the village gets destroyed. The Toa, Bohrok, Matoran and Turaga continue their journey.

Meanwhile the Barraki returns to their leader's; Brutaka, Chirox and Maxilos. Brutaka is angry at Maxilos, who claims to be Teridax's brother. The Barraki explains to the leaders that the heroes are going to use Takanuva's mask to trap Makuta Teridax. Chirox then follows Brutaka to a mountain an summons two Shadow Matoran called Kirop and Radiak, to follow the heroes.

The heroes continue their journey by climbing a very high mountain. They suddenly get attacked by a Visorak that tries to kill one of the Matoran. After a short struggle the Visorak falls down to dephts beneath the mountain taking Toa Lewa with him. Later they encounter the guardian Umbra, that stops them for crossing the mountains. Lehvak shots his Kraana at Umbra, that allows them to use Umbra as their servant.

Kirop and Radiak informs Maxilos about the mission. Maxilos sends Gadunka to help. Meanwhile the heroes end up in a fight against some Piraka (Vezok, Avak). Umbra gets knocked out by Vezok. The Piraka are easily defeated by the help of the Bohrok, but then Gadunka tries to kill them. The heroes climb up in a tree were Gadunka can't reach them, who finally wanders off. The heroes are then forced to pass Makuta Teridax's cave in order to get to the temple. At the same time Kirop and Radiak finds Teridax inside the cave, and wakes him up. Maxilos and Spinax follow Gadunka inside the cave to find the heroes.
