Was it ever revealed what the markings on the Bohrok Kal' faceplates were? The kinda look like landmasses and at first I always thought it represented the regions of Mata Nui but the shapes don't match up at all. I can't really find anything on the wiki and I have been wondering about this for a long time.
Typical Bionicle fans.... always overthinking simple things.
They exist because it looks cool. The end.
It might have had a planned story significance, but its pretty much an emblem just to distinguish the Kal.
I might have worded it wrong in the first post. It's not really overthinking, just a curiosity really and if the reason it's is just to look cool(which it is) then that's fine with me.
They always looked to me like lizard scales
It's there because it looks like a flame pattern and looks cool.
Probably the only reason as to why they are there is so that the headplates dont look as bland as they would be were they only silver colored
My thoughts of the BIONICLE community in a nutshell. XD
i just like to think of it as some sort of representation of the destruction of Mata Nui, or something. But, otherwise,
Rule of cool is the only explanation.
I figured they were cuts and scratches in the metal, y'know cause the Kal were so powerful.
Am I the only one who now discovers that all the Bohrok-Kal markings are different?
Only a true Bionicle fan would be able to recognize the Bohrok-Kal purely by its marking
That's basically why I asked if they meant something. If they were all the same then they would obviously be a symbol of the Kal but all the markings are different.
Well, I'd like to point out that the silhouettes of their respective shield pieces in the middle are pretty helpful.
