I’d have twin air katana, and a cordak blaster. My team would consist of Axonn, Brutaka, Nuparu, Zaria, and Chiara. My transportation would be the Axelara T9.
Zaria and Chiara, being toa of iron and electricity respectively, would utterly neutralize entire squadrons of Vahki. Nuparu, having helped create the vahki, would reprogram the vahki that we salvage to fight for us, and possibly figure out how to end the crisis entirely. His ability to manipulate earth, turn invisible, protect others with his shield, and shoot cordak rounds would also be invaluable. Axonn and Brutaka would provide brute force, as well as Brutaka’s convenient ability to literally take one anywhere. He could warp us to safety, send danger away, or take us to a completely peaceful alternate reality. I suppose I, being a mere matoran with swords, a big gun, and an even bigger airship, would provide air and ground support when needed.
Long story short, the apocalypse would be over pretty quickly.
That’d make the redemltion arc have a lot more impact, I’d say. Vakama would probably have to sacrifice himself to be forgiven for that one.
What if 09 actually DID turn out to be a hard reboot? How do you think the fanbase would have handled it?
