Was Vultraz's Mask Shape Noble Or Great?

So, Vultraz is known to wear a Mask of Scavenging. At least, its powerless version (although there’s a headcanon among my friends that when Icarax replaced his Mask of Scavenging with Kraahkan, he gave his old Mask to Vultraz).

My question is, was Vultraz’s Mask Noble-shaped or Great-shaped?

Since the other Matoran of that year all had noble masks, I think Vultraz would have a noble one too.

That’s what I’ve been thinking, but one of my more stubborn friends keeps stating that “according by all known facts” it isn’t. So I decided to settle this argument once and for all by asking Greg.

Vultraz’s Mask was originally worn by Icarax, so that has to be the Great version. Why would a Makuta wear a Noble Kanohi?

It was never stated that this is the same mask though?

Wow, you’re right. All this time I thought Icarax had given Vultraz his Mask because he had discarded it for the Kraahkan. Nothing indicates it’s the same Mask.

I mean, it would be an interesting detail in the plot. But unless mr Farshtey confirms it’s the same mask, my original question still stands.

It kind of made sense to me:

  1. Icarax wears the MoS
  2. Vultraz is Icarax’s sidekick
  3. Icarax discards the MoS and wears the Kraahkan during the Karda Nui arc
  4. Vultraz wears a MoS during the Karda Nui arc

Vultraz’s mask was likely linked to Icarax because 1. It lacked a name and power, 2. Icarax’s former Mask was unknown and 3. Both characters/sets happened to look very red and very evil.
I mean, I would prefer it if it were the way I understood it (which is nothing more headcanon at this point), but I know it’s probably going to be yet another case of “The Matoran just happens to wear a Noble version of his/her Phantoka counterpart”, which is something I’ve always disliked.

Mazeka’s volitak was great shaped, so it would make sense if his rival’s mask was also great shaped

Arguments for Noble mask:

  • All other 08 Matoran, except Mazeka, wore Noble masks
  • Vultraz wearing Icarax’s discarded mask is just a fan theory, not confirmed.
  • Makuta can use Noble masks.
    Arguments for Great Mask:
  • Mazeka, his rival, wears a Great mask.
  • There is nothing contridicting the theory mentioned above.
  • It’d be stupid for a Makuta, especially Icarax to use a weak Noble mask.
  • According to BS01’s Mask of Scavenging page, Vultraz wears a Great mask. (Note: No source given, however, most likely assumption)

It is settled then. Thank you!

Is it safe to say that it was Icarax’s mask then?

Awesome, that makes it’s moccing potential greater!
