So, at the end of Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui, there was a scene that really confused me.
When Jaller came out of his matoran canister, his original mask had been damaged. By the looks of it, it had been a Noble Komau, the same mask that Turaga Onewa wears.
Then, Turaga Vakama gave Jaller the Noble Hau that Turaga Lhikan had once worn. But when it was put on Jaller’s face, the mask suddenly transformed, reverting back to what I assume is a Great Hau, based on Jaller’s set.
So, this scene left me with a lot of questions:
Why did the Noble Hau revert when Jaller wore it? It has been previously stated that matoran are capable of wearing noble masks, and it was shone that Jaller was wearing a noble mask prior. Was this due to Creative License, or was it for the sake of continuity to Jaller’s design in the sets and movies that took place later in the timeline?
Did the Noble Hau revert to a Great Hau? In Jaller’s set, he seems to be wearing a Great Hau. However, it has also been previously stated that it is impossible for matoran to wear Great Kanohi. Is Jaller capable of wearing Great Masks, or is it just a matoran Hau designed to look like a great Hau?
A response would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, this was the scene I was talking about, for reference:
