But we can't deny the potential is there. Either way though, I'm glad it wasn't canonized back then. It can get cringe worthy when characters start awkwardly interacting with each other because of Love. I don't think G1 Bionicle pre-Bara magna could of supported moments like that.
Well then be glad GI Bionicle never had the chance to explore that stuff.
I'm going to be honest though: I am very curious to see how Matoran would react to the concept love.
And I'm going to be honest again: I don't see anything wrong with canonizing matoran love post bionicle story, but that's just my opinion.
