"And that's the difference between us, Toa -- I don't care what the Great Spirit Mata Nui thinks. I don't care what anyone thinks, and that's why I'll always be free and you'll always be fighting someone else's fights."
"Somewhere, there are Toa fighting and dying right now, and when they're gone, no one will even remember their names. How many Matoran do you think recall the names of the Toa who fought in the war against the Dark Hunters? But they remember Makuta and Nidhiki and Roodaka. Good gets forgotten, evil never does."

"And something else ... our destinies are not written in stone, set in place. They are something we have to find for ourselves."
"You are a monster, Nidhiki. Matoran seeing you would run screaming. You will never be cheered, never be admired, never be hailed as a savior by the crowds. What are you now? A Toa of Nightmares? A hero, Nidhiki, or a horror? No, I think you will find your place is now, and forevermore, with the Dark Hunters. For who else would have you?"
-the Shadowed One
"Do you know what this is? A Kanohi mask — one of the most valuable possessions of a Toa. It no doubt belonged to some brave hero who ventured here from Metru Nui, looking to close this gate, thinking he was doing what was best for his city. He succeeded, but only after a great battle, and finally succumbed to his injuries. Only his mask was left behind. Did he find a hero's grave in these waters, do you think? Or just a final resting place in the mud for a fool?"
-The Shdaowed One
I really like Hakann and Vakama as characters, and although The Shadowed One has never particularly appealed to me, he has some killer quotes.
